Funny you mention that. I haven't watched much of GITS: 2nd Gig (traded cable TV in my room for cable Internet) but from what I gather, it appears Mokoto is weearing more clothing in the series but they make her boobs appear bigger. How the heck is that possible. Also to paraphrase the words of Solid Snake in MGS, "She's goot a pretty good butt". Not in Sir Mix-A-Lot's league, but decent.

Just to edit somethings its Major *Motoko* *Kusanagi*.

Also I actually could understand how a person could be embarassed by being surrounded by women with giant breasts. For me it would only be a problem if they all shoved their boobs in my face and if they were angry at me cause then I wouldn't be focused on their yelling but more on their assets which would probably piss them off even more.

Are we talking about real women and real boobs here, or are we talking about watching an anime and feeling emberrassed because the girl has a huge rack?

If it is real women: I definately don't feel embarressed, instead I thoroughly enjoy my time. (hehehehe). If it is anime: It can get awkward if I am with someone is not familiar with anime. Not because the character has large breasts, but because I don't want them to think that every anime contains women with large breasts.

Astraea, please explain what you meant by that comment. I'm lost there.

----------

I think I posted something about that within the early pages of this MASSIVE thread.

Yes, Major Kusanagi wears more clothes in GITS:SAC 2nd Gig, but that isn't what makes he breasts look larger here than in the initial GITS:SAC.

In terms of the storyline, spoiler[didn't she acquire a new shell near the end of the series]?

In terms of the production, maybe a new decision maker came on board and decided she should be drawn that way.

She did but I remember the last 3-4 episodes or so and checked them out on tape before. I remembered no difference (believe me with her if there was, 5,000 people would've posted about that on the [as] boards).

I still think bigger clothes make for bigger outlines.

Well, I can happily say I don't know any girls with extremly huge grotesuqe boobies. However I feel exactally the same as you kyle, on the anime aspect of it. Thats why I don't watch certian series when around some unfarmiliar with anime.... Rolling Eyes

I was referring to the Major's outfits in the first series (and I got her name wrong, duly noted...I'm just going to leave now Embarassed). Nothing to do with her cleavage. She looks weird in those clothes, that's all.
Didn't mean to confuse, I think I changed subject mid-post.

Drat it, I shouldn't have been posting at gone midnight, sorry. Embarassed Embarassed

Hey I just made the topic but seems alot of people got interested in it. Besides its 20 pages over more than 6 months so thats basically more than 3 pages a month.

Now whats bad in my mind is a thread with over 8 pages and dissing up a bad dub when people already know the answer is mostly yes the dub does suck and we prefer to watch the fansubs.

I wonder if people know which thread I was referring too.

What? You dissin' dubs??? AWWW SIIIITTTT!!!!

Anyway, that's why I thought I should shed some light on Japanese anime A to compliment the discussion on T. So far no one's bitten yet/still want to mention the T.

There should be a con to celebrate T & A in Japanese anime (and I don't mean Tentacon-Chibi). It'd probably have Bible Black, the works of Go Nagai . . .who would make good special guests on a artists' panel, I wonder? VA's I invite are Cynthia Gough (one of the ONLY GOOD Bible Black VA's) and maybe Josephine Clemens.

I guess it's that fanservice stuff, you know. Can't sell this kind of stuff to guys without it...

If you ask me, I think a cute face is worth more and a huge bust anyways.

BINGO!!!

And to The Frankman noo i'm not really dissing dubs I can sit through a lot of the so called "crap" dubs but really I have no problem with them. It just ticks me off that people just don't move on and just continue their lives but instead choose to continually say a dub is crap when it has been reinforced for quite a while.
