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.
kuze was such a badass
Second season was alright. Not as good as season one though.
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.
Now watch Solid State Society.
I cried when the Tachikomas died.
Decidedly un-manly tears.
The part where the Major and Kuze trapped under a hole and Batou slamming the ground with a crucifix
made me shed a tear.
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.
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.
Batou wants the Major
Pazu episode was awesome.
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?
haha oh wow
It entertains your eyes and brain
"I'm just a terrorist."
hey did you even watch the 2nd season?
You know, every time I see that title...
Yes. Many times
...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
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.
Pazu is probably the most invisible member of Section 9. Poor guy, could use some more screentime.
Watch Season 2 again, the Major was definatly female.
I'd say Bomer is even more invisible. He didn't even get an episode to himself.
Ah thanks. I was always a little confused with her backstory shown in the show. Also, we need more Saito
I noticed in almost every season/movie Batou yells "MOTOKOOOOOOOOOOO" at some point.
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.
I liked how his buddies made fun of him for that in the season 1 finale.
And the game too.
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.
I did too.
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.
I always thought that Batou had some affection toward the major. :-:. Don't censor their love IG productions.
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.
Jesus christ I need to find this.
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.
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.
See, in real life, far from being vomit-inducing, that would just be TOTALLY HOT.
I bawwed on the episode with loli and shota motoko and kuze and the paper cranes ;_;
Also I didn't realize it was him until the last episode.
>>Also I didn't realize it was him until the last episode.
hey are there any other anime similar to GitS? I really enjoyed Planetes, but I really have'nt been able to find anything like this series.
Black Lagoon somewhat.
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.
In terms of action or DEEP
Maybe Ergo Proxy?
hey thanks, haha to be honest I like the deep stuff over the action. GitS seemed to have the perfect amount of plot mixed with action.
Isn't there some new anime somehow related to Shirow Masamune in the works?
This is the closest thing I can think of.
I just realized the Major has the same haircut as Rena.
Seirei no Moribito is Major plus lips and spears.
Dennou Coil. Im probably spelling that wrong
You mean Rena has the same haircut as Motoko?
Ergo Prosy's got the DEEP sci-fi philosophizing thing going on
I was just about to say the same thing.
And a Radiohead ED.
The Wired, let her show it to you (Serial Experiments Lain)
NSFW: GitS Cyber Sex, excuse crap scan.
I'd let her show me the Wired, if you know what I mean.
So all cyborgs are forced to be faggots/lesbians? That's... not very enticing.
Shirow Masamune hates drawing naked men so he made everyone gay.
I'd go gay for the major.... <3
except that's the wrong pic, lol
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.
I can name 5 Gainax conclusions superior to Lain.
If that were true it would have been called Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone.
Nah. Some people just have a vendetta against it because they like the movie better. Me, I like both.
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
killing gouda was necessary.
He's good at that.
He's spot on. SAC was about social phenomena.
You`re a fucking retarded who likes GitS without actually knowing what it`s about.
What a faggot.
While I am irritated by your need to jump all over the "complex" and "deep" comments, you must be lauded for your efforts.
Cirno is right. Information like this could save your life one day.
That's exactly what GitS is about. Why do you think they focus so much on unconscious participation in a collectivist medium?
Musashi Gundoh. It's pretty damn epic. You'll love it if you like GitS.
The fail is because he took a stupid pun seriously.
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.
Except that it sets the stage for SSS.
