Ghost in the Shell Cosplay: Motoko Kusanagi (Makiron) Cosplay 21 OCT 2012

Japanese cosplayer Makiron aims high as she tries to take on the always popular character of Major Motoko Kusanagi, of the famed Ghost in the Shell by Masamune Shirow franchise.

Major Motoko Kusanagi is a fictional Japanese character in the Ghost in the Shell anime and manga series. She is a cyborg employed as the squad leader of Public Security Section 9, a fictional division of the real Japanese National Public Safety Commission.

She is voiced by Atsuko Tanaka in the movies and the Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex anime series. In the English dubbing of the original films she is voiced by Mimi Woods and Mary Elizabeth McGlynn in the sequel and in the anime series.

Kusanagi’s various incarnations in the manga, movies, and TV series all portray her differently. Since each of these has an independent storyline, Kusanagi’s physical and mental characteristics have been modified in different ways to reflect the focus of each respective story.

And now you know.
