Her pantlessness was one of the main reasons why I didn't really care for her as much there. Somehow in MMI it fit, but here, it just looked wrong...

She seems more like the urban camouflage BDUs gal then the G-string type IMO.

Now here's a thing, just occured to me while I was musing over the latest replies. The Grey jumpsuit idea REALLY suits Motoko's style a lot better and she STILL looks hot in it. The same goes for Deunan in the Appleseed movies. It's more discreet and just as sexy, don't you think?

I certainly have no complaints about the major walking around in revealing attire. It is eye candy, and I am an admitted fanboy Very Happy

But seriously, I never saw her 'provocative' wardrobe as too much of a problem. Sure it does catch your attention every now and then (maybe even more often for some people), but it doesn't really detract from the story, or dilute the quality of character development the first season was trying to achieve. It was just a small harmless fan service, nothing more. Even to those fans who don't exactly like the attire, I don't see any reason for it to be anymore than a minor nuisance. The series was still awesome.

I agree that her 2nd season attire was a tad bit more appropriate for the setting though. Even without having to show flesh every single second, the Major was still looking as sharp as ever. We fanboys were kept on a bit of a diet here, but hey, it still works for me. Razz

Cool enough, I have the figurine of her in that outfit, since they took it directly from the manga. So the doll's based after her manga looks (black hair, cuter face, but same sexy-ass outfit. Smile

Welcome Cheshire Cat.

The one in my Avatar is the sexiest I think. It shows a lot of strength and still shows her curves.

But to me the sexiest version of her is in the opening credits to Second Gig

Black trench with ashen black body suit? Definitely!

I still say her appearance in the first movie in the lolita dress was the best.

She oxymoronically looked extremely powerful, her face conveying even a sense of superiority, and slightly ensued fear. I thought that design was perfect.


Ironically it was the replaced of her also ugliest design. Instead of the girl, she was in a man's body that bared an uncanny resemblance to Michael Jackson! Sad

I'd agree with that, I think I made that point in the 'put some pants on' thread (not that anyone noticed Wink). It's more subtle, but still down right sexy and curvaceous.

I mean how can you not like this:

It's pretty, but it doesn't do her figure justice.

A slight derailment, but i was re-watching the first season, and noticed something.

Towards the end of the undercover mission at that place for "closed shell syndrome" sufferers (ep11), while they are waiting for Togusa to do his sketch, i could swear that Motoko is wearing the outfit from 2nd gig.

I`ve got to agree with Marto_Motoko on this one. I was hoping that the Major would be clad in something a little less revealing than her SAC1 attire, so my heart sank a little when I read the tagline "the sexiest cyborg in anime" - can`t remember just now if it was for 2nd Gig or the videogame - but you get the point.

Nothing wrong with fanservice, but I think they too it too far in season 1. I had a hard time taking her seriously dressed like that and I admire her teammates self control. It also gives people interested the wrong idea of GitS is about. At least, the staff made sure her personality was still important compared to other anime characters who eventually became nothing but fanservice. Still, it took me awhile eventually get used looking at a practically naked woman barking orders, kicking ass, and being philosophical.

I was so glad 2nd Gig toned down her outfit and gave her an overall better wardrobe(my two favorites are the trenchcoat she wears in the opening and the black suit/dress); a person can still be covered up and be sexy.

Just to be clear in case I might have given off the wrong impression, I'm straight, but I even I can see how beautiful Motoko is.
