2nd volume "Ghost Whispers" to open on November 30

The official website for the Ghost in the Shell Arise anime began streaming a promotional video for the Blu-ray release of the anime's first installment, "border:1 Ghost Pain," on Saturday.

In addition, the website also opened the page for the series' second installment, "border:2 Ghost Whispers". The story of "border:2 Ghost Whispers" takes place after Motoko gains her freedom by separating herself from the military's 501st Secret Unit. Even without Aramaki's suggestion to make her own unit, Motoko begins actions to collect members for her very own unit. As this is going on, someone has hacked into the Logicoma. As she transports the machines in order to check them for abnormalities, she is suddenly attacked by an armed unit. Not long after, she meets up with Batou, the man with the "eye that never sleeps", Ishikawa, a former member of the army who is good at finding information through the internet, and Borma, an electronic warfare expert. The new installment is scheduled to open at various Japanese cinemas on November 30.

The new installment will bring back most the cast from the first installment, with Ishikawa, Saito, Paz, and Borma making their first appearance:
