Makashima did nothing wrong.
Impeccable taste in literature too.
Shogo is my hero.
I think failing was a pretty atrocious mistake.
Ghost in the Shell: Spooky Boogy Boogaloo.
boku no reverse image search.
Well there wasn't much he could do to stop the MWSPD.
Although now that I think about it, if he'd not have gotten involved with those murder cases, then they wouldn't have any leads on him.
I really hope the Butcher is able to come up with another great character like Shogo for season 2. He really carried the show.
He'll come back as a hallucination in Kougami's mind, slowly breaking him down.
>He really carried the show.
He really did, Shogo and Masaomi were the only two endearing characters.
I just finished the damn series and I can barely remember the main character's name.
She had a stupid looking face.
Akane is the 2nd best character though.
She's the embodiment of urobuchi's half-assed rejection of a logical philosophy in the vague hope that something better turns up.
She's philosophical weakness personified.
She's the necessary foil that saved the show from being too try hard.
How did this twig throw a cyborg across a room?
Psychomancer by William Urobuchi
Because making a show palatable is more important than integrity.
Urobuchi depicts people whose ideals he objects to as undesirables because he doesn't have a strong rebuttal. So he tries his hardest to make his self insert as likable as possible, but no matter how hard he tries, he doesn't do it.
His self insert was Kogami.
Maybe for his character, but not for his message.
The undeniable theme in all of his works rests in her character.
And by the way, moral ambiguity or a lack of morals doesn't make a work worse by nature. There's a correct way to handle everything.
He killed muh Yuki ;_;
No but seriously, what show is this?
I want to fuck Akane
He didn't commit actions because of an ultimately self righteous or even self serving agenda. He committed actions because everything in the world existed for his amusement. Even the Joker does specific things to make specific points about society and the people that protect it.
Makashima's only schtick was that his existence broke an automated system. And by the point that mystery gets figured out, the audience attention is on the automated system while Makashima is just attention whoring with acts of chaos. Yes, the acts of chaos also broke the system. Yes, his actions would have freed Japan from its dependency on an automated system of psychopaths. Yes, he was a crucial character which exposed the system's flaws.
That doesn't make him a good character, or a hero, or even a villain. He was a Swiss knife tool that was utilized to drive the story forward. And the little details like his handsomeness, his namedropping, how every plot and mystery links back to him, only serves to sugar coat his existence - never to justify him as a fully fleshed out character.
At least spell his name right.
just like manson...
I was hoping Yuki was gonna be set up to come back as an Enforcer after her line about wanting to be one. Then I filled up on hyper oats instead.
He went to far fucking with the Hyper Oats.
