ahh yeah Tutu is pretty much my AC character. Good luck catchin that beetle for her tho :)
I always liked this scene, though I dislike when people use it to excuse the Majors skimpy dresscode
"Oh see look? THATS why she dresses like that its just to confuse the men so she has an advantage!"
No, she dresses that way because thats how they sell anime.
cyberpunk and crime drama work well because I think its to do with the idea of solving mystery, fighting injustice and uncovering corruption. The detective starts with little power over their adversary, often not even knowing who they are dealing with. They have to be smart, adaptive and cunning, as well as ready to brave their worlds dangers to uncover the truth. Cyberpunk settings have a rich culture of corruption and crime with many perils to face, so its a great place to hold such narratives. The 20’s whisky drinking, fist fighting„ chain smoking detective trope combined with cyberpunk is sometimes referred to as “Technoir” as a technological update to film noir, though its popularity originates from Blade Runner.
Personally, I would to see more stories surrounding non law enforcement types helping battle corruption, perhaps in the style of “Hackers”, or maybe something following the exploits of criminals, such as Lupin III. A lot of modern cyberpunk seems to focus on highly paid or trained agencies which whilst sometimes fight corporate corruption, rarely expose the governments that sponsor them. Cyberpunk as a genre struggles with such identity in media because it is often bankrolled by the very people the literature should be striking out at. One thing I like about GITS as a series is the way to looks at both national and foreign policy politics as well as corporations and exposes them all for their seedy underbellies, perhaps to a much greater degree then civilian or street crime. It recognises that sometimes, the real criminals wear white collars and black suits.
Thanks <3 helps keep me going to see msgs like this :)
First shake down: pretty nice actually!
so today marks the beginning of my new diet regime. 2 Nutrient shakes a day„ some tiny health snacks and one meal of 600cals plus as much veg as I need to fill myself. Water and green tea for drinks only.
If it were not for all the veg, it would constitute as a fairly low end cyberpunky diet.
Lets just hope it works. I want that surgery.

my girlfriend is playing a game where she has little mech units fighting and she named one of the pilots after me, and now she keeps giving me shit when my in-game self fucks up?? like she genuinely starts telling me off when “my” mech falls over or I miss with a missile or something. IT’S NOT ACTUALLY ME, RHI, I DIDN’T EVEN ASK YOU TO NAME HER AFTER ME
Well folks, my cyborg mech pilot girlfriend died in the way she would have wanted. She was trying to kick a downed enemy mech with her left leg and missed, slipping and falling to land on the head cockpit, crushing it and causing her to lose half her hp. She then slowly bled out over the next 2 mins of combat whilst missing point plank shots with an autocanon.
We always knew this would happen.
