She looks so unique and pretty in the first GITS movie. I like the anime version too but she looks kinda generic to me.

Ghost in the Shell '95 offers this incredible sense of depth that virtually no other anime can even approach. From the voice acting to the music to the themes and even the visual shading, there's just so much done to give the movie a atmosphere of introspection and reflection. It'd be hard to "descirbe" Mokoto as a character, but at the same time... from the short period we spend with her in the movie, you're left with this feeling of character that's remarkably difficult to quantify. It's an incredible achievement, taking full advantage of what film can provide over text as a storytelling medium. It's hard to track the specific steps taken to develop her personality, but there's so many moments that come across almost as experimental tone pieces that develop this immaterial connetion between audience and chacter. I can't wait to watch Stand Alone Complex, but, on the strenghth of the movie alone, she's burned into my mind forever.

Also, I want her to crush me with her robot thighs, hnggg
