Someone explain to me how this is acceptable clothing/workwear given her career/proffesion?

Completely detracts from the story.
What a shit show.

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.
>>
>>134893551
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.
>>
When you aren't all that conscious of your body, and you need full range of motion and muscle expansion on a whim, that's the perfect outfit.

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.

10 minutes until the top of the hour. Lets see what happens.
>>
>>134895501
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.
>>
>>134895957
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.

Ain't it mentioned in SAC that Motoko's main body is just a heavily modified generic model?
>>
>>134893551
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
>>134894831
>>
>>134897217
you're thinking of a different, sluttier outfit, i think.
>>
>>134897132

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.
>>
>>134897351
>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.
>>
>>134896170
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.
>>
>>134897452
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.
>>
>>134897451

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.
>>
>>134893551
The show itself comments on it and it's part of the characterization. You fucking faggot.
>>
>>134893551
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
>>
>>134897528

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.
>>
>>134897528
>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.
>>
>>134894838
>he
Getting tired of this meme.
>>
>>134898111
>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.
