Movie Quote(s):
  • Major Motoko Kusanagi: I mean, have you ever actually seen your brain?
  • Major Motoko Kusanagi, Puppet Master: And where does the newborn go from here? The net is vast and infinite.
  • Puppet Master: I refer to myself as an intelligent life form because I am sensioned and I am able to recognize my own existence, but in my present state I am still incomplete. I lack the most basic processes inherent in all living organisms: reproducing and dieing. Major Motoko Kusanagi: But you can copy yourself. Puppet Master: A copy is just an identical image. There is the possibility that a single virus could destroy an entire set of systems and copies do not give rise to variety and originality. Life perpetuates itself through diversity and this includes the ability to sacrifice itself when necessary. Cells repeat the process of degeneration and regeneration until one day they die, obliterating an entire set of memory and information, only genes remain. Why continually repeat this cycle? Simply to survive by avoiding the weaknesses of an unchanging system.
  • [last lines] Major Motoko Kusanagi: I wonder where I'll go now. The net is vast and infinite.
  • Puppet Master: Your effort to remain what you are is what limits you.
Movie Trivia:
  • First anime film to be released at the same time in Japan, Britain, and the United States. Its intended goal was to bring anime to a more mainstream audience in the UK and the US. It didn't, but it did become a sleeper hit on video and DVD.
  • Director Trademark: [Mamoru Oshii] Basset Hound.
  • The lyrics to the title song "Making of a Cyborg" were written in ancient Japanese. The romanized Japanese lyrics are as follows: A ga maeba, kuwashime yoini keri A ga maeba, teru tsuki toyomu nari Yobai ni kami amakudarite Yoha ake, nuedori naku. T˘kamiemitame (x4). English translation: When you are dancing, a beautiful lady becomes drunken. When you are dancing, a shining moon rings. A god descends for a wedding And dawn approaches while the night bird sings. God bless you (x4).
  • The following dialogue from the film is a direct quotation from the Bible (I Corinthians 13): "When I was a child, my speech, feelings, and thinking were all those of a child; now that I am a man, I have no more use for childish ways. What we see now is like a dim image in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. What I know now is only partial; then it will be complete as complete as God's knowledge of me".
  • In ordinary anime, characters would at least blink to create the feeling of "being animated", but in this movie, Motoko's eyes intentionally stayed unblinking many times. Director Mamoru Oshii's intention was to portray her as a "doll".
