What is it about?

This is how The IMDb describes this anime OVA:

The year is 2030. Six months passed since the Laughing Man Incident was solved.

About 3 million refugees are living in Japan, invited to fill the labor shortage.

However, the emergent presence of the invited-refugees intensified their confrontation with the “Individualists”, who called for national isolation, which then led to the increased incidences of terrorist attacks.

Under these circumstances, a terrorist group called the Individual Eleven carries out a suicide attack.

But there was a greater scheme behind their action.

When Section 9 learns this, they attempt to nail down the mastermind of the incident.

Meanwhile, Kuze, a surviving member of the Individual Eleven, becomes a charismatic leader of the invited-refugees and intensifies the confrontation against the government.

And Motoko starts feeling a strange sense of fate connecting her with Kuze…

Invited-refugees from Asia: At the time of the Third and the Fourth World Wars, about three million Asians became refugees.

As a source of cheap labor, they were invited into Japan.

Thus they were called “invited-refugees.”

As post-war Japan recuperated, the unemployment rate of the invited-refugees increased.

This developed a circumstance that could lead to a conflict.

The problems surrounding the invited-refugees might explode any minute…

What is it about?

This is how MyAnimeList describes this anime (animated) television show:

Following the closure of the “Laughing Man” case, Section 9 is re-established by Japan’s newly elected Prime Minister, Youko Kayabuki, to combat the persistent threat of cyber-terrorism.

A group calling themselves “The Individual Eleven” has begun committing acts of terror across Japan.

While Motoko Kusanagi, Daisuke Aramaki, Batou, and the other members of Section 9 investigate this new menace, the Japanese government faces a separate crisis, as foreign refugees displaced by the Third World War seek asylum in Japan.

But as the members of the special-ops team continually encounter Kazundo Gouda—a leading member of the Cabinet Intelligence Service—in their hunt, they begin to suspect that he may be involved, and that the events of the refugee crisis and The Individual Eleven may be more connected than they realize…
