GITS: SAC's Jun'ichi Fujisaku, Hiroki Yoshimoto launch new manga on September 20

The September issue of Kodansha's Young Magazine revealed on Tuesday that Jun'ichi Fujisaku and Hiroki Yoshimoto will launch a new Ghost in the Shell manga titled Ghost in the Shell: The Human Algorithm in the next magazine issue on September 20. The manga will also serialize a new chapter every two weeks in Kodansha's Comic Days manga app. Fujisaku posted a photo of the magazine announcement on his Twitter account.

The manga is set after Masamune Shirow's Ghost in the Shell 1.5: Human-Error Processor manga, and will focus on Section 9 after the disappearance of the Major. In particular, it will focus on the stories of Togusa, Batou, Azuma, Ishikawa, and a newcomer from the Channeling Agency named Tsunagi. Fujisaku added that he is writing the story as if it was "Ghost in the Shell 1.75."

Fujisaku previously penned scripts for the Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex and Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2nd GIG anime, and supervised the Ghost in the Shell: Arise project.

Dark Horse Comics and later Kodansha Comics published Shirow's original 1991 manga and its sequels in North America.

Kenji Kamiyama and Shinji Aramaki are directing a new 3D CG anime for the franchise titled Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045 that will premiere next year. Production I.G is producing the anime.
