Why are there so many blonde girls among Shirow's villains?
>the Puma twins
>the M-66 sisters
In fact he only did two female villains who weren't blonde.
>Shirow will never draw Katsura and Leona hatesexing
long haired tanned blondes > everything
Also, Motoko got brainfucked by Miss Puppetmaster, so your theory is flawed.
I'm sure Katsura would have developed into a compelling long-term antagonist for Leona now that the Puma twins have redeemed themselves.
I mean, she's the only person in the entire Newport police force who can get as angry as Leona, and on top of that she's as treacherous as Leona is brave.
