  • Major Kusanagi travels to Taiwan to investigate a case and meets a young boy who\\\'s mixed up with the mafia. This episode reveals a lot about Kusanagi and is one of the most interesting episodes in the season, imo.moreless

    One of the reasons I like Stand Alone Complex so much is because it deals with some pretty weighty subject matter in a futuristic world where humans have become one with our machines. This is a great setting to examine a lot of serious philosophical issues in a unique way. This episode examines mostly Major Kusanagi\\\'s maternal and sexual sides. Through most of the series we see Kusanagi being a warrior, but here we see her being a protective mother figure to a young boy she meets in Taiwan while on assignment. She develops an obvious bond with the boy and even offers herself to him sexually, at one point. She goes to all lengths to protect him, culminating in a battle with gangsters. This episode really gets us inside Kusanagi\\\'s head more than others.moreless

    I really enjoyed this episode. This episode was great. They could easily make a spinoff from this episode with the major and that young little boy. I like the end of how the major came and saved his life and acted lis she was his leader lol. That was great.
