Actually she wears a similar outfit in the original manga.

These are all the oufits/bodies she's uthroughout the entire series, with the one on the far left being her original design.

That's different. That leotard is her WORK attire.

It doesn't go with her no-nonsense personality at all.


If you ask me, that tasteless outfit is a blemish on an otherwise perfect character

In the original manga the blue leotard was an optical camouflage suit she wore.

You're not 'drunk' unless you can't speak the words you're thinking of, can actually tolerate watching people popping giant zits on JewTube, and won't remember anything when you wake up.

A single shot in my experience won't do much but give me a 'buzz'. Even if I'm a short-stack I surprisingly need a lot of liquor in me to black out, much to my Liver's dismay.

I fainted once when my dad was cutting open a bandage wrap that was around my finger, I think I might have cut it or something, and I fainted because I was so frightened, he had to catch me to prevent me from hitting the floor. I was kinda dazed when I opened my eyes back up.

Honestly that sounds a little gross, considering not once in my entire drinking career have I puked. I usually try to drink as much water as I can while I do it so I don't get hung-over and so far it's been working. Even if I have to piss ever thirty seconds.

Only once have I gotten hung-over and felt it, I honestly thought I was gonna' die that day.

You implying something, shorty?

Better character designs and developments. To be honest, the stern, cold major is a product of the 1995 movie and Stand Alone Complex.

In the original series she was still a professional, but a bit more laid back and personable. She had a boyfriend (who I think died at some point).

She became the stern, no-nonsense type after coming in contact with the ghost in the machine. At the end of the series her "Ghost" got lost in the net, I think. By the time she resurfaced she had changed a lot.

One of the major plot points in the Ghost in Shell series revolves around the cyberbrains. Basically in the timeline, people are able to imprint their brains into cyberbrains. These are purely mechanical and digital proxies that host the essence of a person. The thing is there is a thing called a "Ghost", and basically this is an unexplainable phenomenon that occurs with cyberbrains. You'd think that being cybernetic, you could easily clone someone's brain now that you can copy it, but it doesn't work that way. A person's "Ghost" is their spirit, and only the cyberbrain occupied by the "Ghost" is the real one, even if you copied the brain. No one can explain what ghosts are, why they occur or how to copy or create them.

This is basically where the story goes weird. The "Ghost in the Shell" the title refers to is a "Ghost" that seems to have spawned on the net that has no body, and has never had one. In essence it's a rogue soul that seems to have spawned out of nothingness, a phenomenon that is technically impossible. So a good chunk of the series is about Section 9 trying to track down this "Ghost" and capture it so they can study it and find out where it came from, but seeing as how it lives on the net, it's nearly impossible to pin down.

Oh, is that plot addressed in one of the movies? I guess I've been missing a lot just watching the anime by itself

>Section 9 trying to track down this "Ghost" and capture it so they can study it

That sounds really unethical

Actually that is a major plot point in the series as well.

In the original series, section 9 isn't "the good guys" so to speak, and they actually do a lot of shady shit.

The series deals with a lot of questions about ethics. In fact, they even mock this in the series using the Tachikomas. The Tachikomas are AI driven tanks that have no Ghosts, but they have a hive mind type personality. When one goes on a mission the others eagerly wait for it to come back and share it's mission data. They think of it like telling fun adventure stories. Of course, being AI's with no ghosts, they are treated more like machines and pets even though they seem to show real emotion at times. One of the side plots is the Tachikomas rallying together and demanding natural oil instead of synthetic, in which they are promptly ignored because no one cares. It's played up for humor though since they obey orders no matter how much they protest because that is what they're programmed to do, so any threats they make are empty because they can't disobey even if they wanted to.

Welp, now I'm all pissed of

I knew S9 did shady stuff, but to not respect the sapience of AI is just philosophically wrong!

Surely you mean "sentience"... a curious slip!


File: 1429845445103.jpg (218.31 KB, 1600x1200, 1370908691332.jpg)

Well, here's the thing. They're well taken care of and there's really no difference between synthetic oil and natural oil as far as the Tachikomas are concerned. Natural oil is just more expensive.

In other words, their protest is basically for nothing more than their own personal interest, not because they are being mistreated. They want it just because they know about it, not really because they need it. The whole thing is kind of a play about people who want things just to want them, but don't really understand what they are asking for. The Tachikomas think since natural oil is more expensive, it's better when it really isn't, and they make up all these mythical stories about how much better their lives would be if they had natural oil when the reality is nothing would really change.

No no. Most animals are sentient.

Sapient means you have a grasp of philosophical concepts, which the Tachis do.

So it's much more meaningful.


seems weird that an AI, an unnatural life form, would fall into the trap of thinking that natural = better.

Are you sure they had no good reason?

File: 1429846298362.jpg (542.55 KB, 1680x1050, Yoko2.jpg)

The whole thing basically started when one of the Tachikomas was given natural oil while out on assignment (Because it was the only thing available) at the time. Of course, that one came back, shared it with the group and the rest got jealous and wanted it too. The one who got it talked about how great it was and how special it was (Which, when you'r'e part of a hive mind, basically makes you a celebrity) so it caused a mini-revolution within the group. Of course, since they really couldn't DO anything to revolt, they kinda just sat around complaining most of the time.


File: 1429846385817.png (244.73 KB, 900x621, yoko25.png)

Also, the one that got the natural oil exaggerated the effects of it greatly just to make it's 'story' more exciting.

They're basically a bunch of children who are also military great weapons.

They act like a bunch of children in the show most of the time, arguing over petty things, being amazed at simple things, and loving to tell and hear stories, and play pretend sometimes.


Military spider tanks with a mindset of a child

Very adorable

Basically, this is what they do in their free time:


Aaaaand sometimes they get entirely philosophical for no apparent reason.

Also I'm positive one of the VAs in the third video has done work for the Digimon dub.
