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."
