Someone explain to me how this is acceptable clothing/workwear given her career/proffesion?
Completely detracts from the story.
What a shit show.
I was really interested in watching this after years of meaning to get around to it and was crushed to find it wasn't very insightful at all and was more about weaving contrivances to get her pointing her ass at the camera than exploring the setting/the tech/futurism in general
The Major's body isn't real.
The Major's body is always meant to look like a cheap sex robot. So people won't try to kidnap her for her expensive parts.
The Major always wears appropriate and professional looking clothes when she needs to.
It's an interesting question. When you body is artificial do what degree questions and obligations of modesty apply? In formal public occasions she wears a uniform, but given the somewhat irregular status of Section 9 I felt that it was simply that she didn't give a fuck and this was just what she liked/was comfortable in.
>trying to put sense/logic behind fanserviceshit
Except there is internal logic to the way the Major dresses.
The Major is supposed to look like a cheap waifu robot and not the super high end full prosthetic cyborg that she is. So the trashy manner of dress is part of the look.
When you're a perverted lesbian cyberpunk anime girl who literally purchased the body of a slut. I would say that's when it's acceptable.
It's funny you say that.
Throughout the entire series i have never been interested in the Majors T&A display.
Had gained some early respect, what she wears means nothing to who he is underneith.
It's funny when people obsess over her generic "slut" outfit when she's so much hotter in her dress uniform.
I don't care how she dresses. She just needs her sexy
dubvoice and I'm gold.
What flimsy justification the authors give her is really irrelevant. It's unprofessional regardless of what her body is made of.
In SAC II she's dressed a lot more appropriately, closer to what a police officer SHOULD be dressed like.
i've already stated it several times.
The Major's body is incredibly expensive and one of the most advanced in the world. If her outside appearance reflected the nature of her insides. People would be trying to mug her and break her down for parts, all the time. So on the outside she looks like a cheap robot. Like the kind that would would be someone's waifubot. The trashy clothes just help add to the appearance.
>You feel shame if you walk around wearing nothing in an mmo?
She wore that outfit to a meeting once as I recall and only because it was all she had after a gunfight. They even commented on how inappropriate it was.
This is how she looked while working
depend on continuity, it goes from civilian prototype to very expensive military top-end unit.
the consistency is on that Motoko is full body cyborg whose only organic is the brain.
In TV-series however motoko have switch brain several times, making it only her ghost is original.
but in movies, her ghost have merged with puppet master ai which causing her ghost is not even fully hers.
yeah, she's transhuman in nearly all sense of words.
>have switch brain several times,
you mean the time she got killed but didn't, because she never actually switched over her cyberbrain? I don't know if it was implied that she was going to move her whole brain unit or not. I think it might have been.
Anything can be justified in-universe with enough mental gymnastics, anon. The authors really did it because they thought the only way to hold the audience's attention was with some gratuitous T&A.
At a certain point there's enough utility to justify it, though. in this case, since she's a big girl who can make her own decisions, and she needs good range of motion without damaging her clothes, it's not that far of a leap i think.
she can hijack other brain and if the puppet-brain is killed, she still be fine as long the main brain intact, true.
The one that i mention is that even in Gits, brain have age limit. In one particular episode in season two (i think) Motoko is about to transfer her ghost from her main/actual brain into newer brain, to replace the aging brain.
the industry is what it is, in the beginning yeah she's there to be sexualized, but then again, you can't expect them to sell MORE without a figure like that.
blame the industry, not the author.
and for those of you saying this has a lot of fanservice, you guys aren't really speaking the truth
Considering her full body cyborg state,
Her military-grade skin is bullet proof, any extra weight unless really heavy armor is unnecessary/hindrance. Clothing is simply fashion statement, or standard uniform given by Aramaki.
>big girl who can make her own decisions
Except she's not; she's a character made and controlled by the author. If she were a real person, then we would respect her autonomy and not slut-shame, but since she's not, we ought to consider the motives behind her appearance.
>good range of motion
That has to be one of the lamest excuses for skimpy clothing I have ever seen. A standard police officer's cotton outfit allows for the complete range of motions that the human body is capable of. As a cyborg, she's likely to have a somewhat decreased range of motions (though not to the degree seen in robots and prosthetics now, obviously), so it should be even less of an issue for her. FFS, it's not a suit of armor or anything like that.
>a character made and controlled by the author.
well yes, but I'm talking in terms of her characterization. Why the fuck would she wear a standard outfit? she's in a special unit of misfits she handpicked. what ever gave you the impression that she's the sort of person to be conservative? I'm trying to avoid the usual tumblr-shaming here, but there aren't many other explanations.
the episode where she nearly fucks a kid went entirely over this dumb fucks head
The major gives zero fucks about her body.
Jesus they show this in the first fucking movie.
>Women in media are all virginal paragons of morality who meet 1800s dress codes
>Women in reality are rapid, nudist turbosluts who openly have sex with anything and in public and are celebrated for this
Well fuck anon, I think you've given me the hiccups from that bout of hysterical laughter.
Who cares what someone in a fictional work wants to wear. It's literally the age of transhumanism in that one in particular.
>This thing a character wears makes me unable to enjoy a show, therefore the show is bad
I know this is the internet, but do people really not understand that this is a problem subjective to the person in question, and is unrelated to the quality of the show?
[Now that I've mostly gotten control over my laughter] You show me a real, on-the-beat soldier or police officer who even looks 1/10th as slutty as the Major in that getup does, and maybe you'll have a valid point there.
>That scene where she rips the skirt so she can kick the shit out of the laughing man assassins
It's not even a good looking uniform, but put the Major in it and some how it's hot as hell.
It's unfortunate, it's still a good series, but just couldnt take her seriously at all with that thong on the screen every other second
Yes, I masturbate to the few good Major doujins too. But again, we're talking about the anime here
Yep, that's the one. Damn that's sexy.
On an unrelated note, anybody have an opinion on the new Ghost in the Shell game they're rolling out? Looks like your generic PvP shooter set in the GITS universe.
Why wouldn't they be? Even in fiction, the MIB don't wear anything that would look out of place on a US Attorney. One's appearance *shouldn't* give away the extraordinary nature of one's particular assignment.
I know right? Eccentric super wizard class hackers look normal and professional just like this person who works for the NSA. We should definately compare the media of other cultures to our superior western media!
>It's shit. You're better off playing the Playstation ones.
I believed it's Titled Oni,
Or in other places, it's called Deux Ex
off screen she gains information by "posing" as a prostitute. You don't wear full military gear while gaining undercover information that would reveal you are working for the government.
>Titillation isn't the definition of fanservice
In the local vocabulary, it more or less is.
>You have to be a real pervert to assume that scene was pandering in the straight shot angle
I kinda doubt that. Her smile was sultry as fuck.
Yea it was pretty good.
We can't play webm's with sound here can we?
2nd gig had all around better outfit designs, but the art was also less consistent.
Best and most classy is still this.
>in THIS fiction, there's nothing out of place and it's all realistic
Well this other author wanted something eccentric. Tripfagging without a reason should be a bannable offense.
