Indexer Notes

Overleaf from Chapter page that is prolific throughout the series. The page shows what could be the signature icon of Shirow as a game controller taking human characteristics hooked to a computer holding a CD in it's "hand." The words "Now Loading..." is below the iconic image.

Synopsis:
Top cybercrime agent Motoko Kusanagi has returned--or has she? Well, whoever "Motoko" is--or isn't--she's back on the job with Batou, protecting a comatose key witness from assassination, a killing designed to end the investigation of a case involving lethally defective micro machines. But the bad guys don't only have little machines, they also have great big combat mecha perfectly capable of taking apart the hospital--not to mention Matoko and Batou--to terminate the target!
