just finished it.

I thought the ending was somewhat depressing...

I think she loved him.
>>
Kuze better be alive in cyberspace, dammit.
>>
Kuze was ultimate moe.
>>
>>10071055

kuze was such a badass
>>
Second season was alright. Not as good as season one though.
>>
>>10071073

The first season was fantastic...But I think the second season delivered with more emotional depth. The whole story about the refugees and kuze with the major mixed in the middle really got me hooked. the last 6 episodes were fucking intense as hell too.
>>
>>10071033
Now watch Solid State Society.

Is good
>>
I cried when the Tachikomas died.

Decidedly un-manly tears.
>>
>>10071125

The part where the Major and Kuze trapped under a hole and Batou slamming the ground with a crucifix
made me shed a tear.
>>
>>10071073
I love both seasons for different things. S1 was great for the thinking aspect, and S2 had less thinking but a lot more emotion. I felt like shit when he died.
>>
>>10071134

OP here

yeah im dling it right now, cant wait to see it. I heard the Major quit section 9. If so, then she totally did it because she was'nt able to save Kuze...And that's pretty god damn depressing. She fuckin loved that guy.
>>
>>10071214
she did

Batou's sad.

Batou wants the Major
>>
Pazu episode was awesome.
>>
>>10071219
They can't fuck tho. I guess they'll be cuddle buddies. Also, wasn't it implied that the Major was guy who decided to choose a female body

Is this shit good?

Yes. Many times
>>
>>10071248
...what the fuck? no.

those are all jabs at the fact the Major is unsure she was EVER human up until 2nd Gig where we get her backstory
>>
>>10071248
Her answer to that question was just a joke. The whole Kuze backstory says she was a girl before the accident where she had to switch to full cyborg body.

>>10071222
Pazu is probably the most invisible member of Section 9. Poor guy, could use some more screentime.
>>
>>10071248

Watch Season 2 again, the Major was definatly female.
>>
>>10071357
I'd say Bomer is even more invisible. He didn't even get an episode to himself.
>>
>>10071357
Ah thanks. I was always a little confused with her backstory shown in the show. Also, we need more Saito

Definatly Borma.

Im pretty sure pure-cyborgs have alternative routes for fucking or pleasure by using their cyberbrains.

Although it's not entirely certain that pure-cyborg bodys cant physically have sex. Or at least that's the jist that I get. If anyone has any proof, feel free to object.

>>10071416

I liked how his buddies made fun of him for that in the season 1 finale.

But he does get some actually useful and onscreen work every now and then. Like the whole "Imma gonna use myself as a recipient for teh virus" and Fujikawa is like "k lol".
It's been a while since I watched it, but I sure remember seeing Bommer a lot more than Pazu.

GitS:SAC is good, but it always drops the ball at the end of each season. It builds and builds and then just sort of fizzes out at the end.

The first season builds up to what should be a huge climactic battle between Major, Batou, and the forces after them, but after she's shot, the next episode is a bunch of talking and wrap up. It's blue balls.

In the second season, the final episode starts out well, then they sprint to the finish line after the Tachikoma's satelite sacrifice. It did the total opposite of what the first season did - instead of too much time wrapping up, it did too little. Killing Goda was completely unnecessary. Kuze's death was an afterthought. Then a time skip for no particular reason. It's faggotry.

SSS lost gas in the final act, too. The producers have no idea how to conclude a story.
>>
>>10071416

I always thought that Batou had some affection toward the major. :-:. Don't censor their love IG productions.
>>
>>10071430

Read the original manga, cyber sex is very common, they hook each other up to VR networks and shit. Wierd things like person A masturbates and person B feels it, it only works for same sex though. Batou accidently connect to the Major when she is doing this and it almost makes him throw up because his body has no way of processing the stimulation.
>>
>>10071497

Jesus christ I need to find this.
>>
>>10071492

Batou and Major may share some sexual tension, but her heart will never be where he wants it.

In other words, he will MOTOKOOOOOOOOO for the rest of his life.
>>
>>10071497
the original manga, movies and TV series aren't all the EXACT same series, there are many differences between them as far as both characters, events and technology is concerned
>>
>>Wierd things like person A masturbates and person B feels it, it only works for same sex though.

...Ow.
>>
>>10071497
See, in real life, far from being vomit-inducing, that would just be TOTALLY HOT.

Having cyber sex with the opposite sex is bad because your brain is sent stimulus for body parts that you don't have, causing your body to go APSJALFBKSJD. Things much worse than just vomiting can happen.

Sort of, but it's more abstract than GitS. Sort of a Gainax ending, but not quite that bad.

sigh. 2nd Gig is way too intelligent a series for /a/.

But SAC wasn't deep or even close to being complex.

Nah. Some people just have a vendetta against it because they like the movie better. Me, I like both.
>>
>>10072646
It was called complex because it was
>Complex: a combination of emotions and impulses that have been rejected from awareness but still influence a person's behavior

Not because it was
>Complex: complicated in structure; consisting of interconnected parts; "a complex set of variations based on a simple folk melody"; "a complex mass of diverse laws and customs"

Learn the difference. It could save your life

Cirno is right. Information like this could save your life one day.

The fail is because he took a stupid pun seriously.
>>
>>10072820

No it wasn't. Section 9 could have arrested him, he wasn't going to get anywhere. They had him, and he wasn't armed or threatening them in any way, anymore. It would have made a stronger statement to arrest him and show that the sort of thing he did was unacceptable, and force him to live his life in obscurity in some prison. Killing him was just gratuitous and they could have used that scene to build up to Kuze's death, instead of just cutting to it after the fact and then flashing forward.

It was an enormous failure in series directing.
>>
>>10073778
Except that it sets the stage for SSS.
