Ghost in the Shell: She must therefore have ended her five years of military training in , and she must have been born at least 18 years earlier, in at the least. She was turned into a cyborg at age 5, thus in The writer probably just forgot to add all the cumulative time-periods together. Saito’s flashback episode in the second season indicates that Motoko served overseas in an unofficial capacity; officially, the Japanese Self-Defence Forces avoided combat during WWIV, except for recapturing Nemuro. Ishikawa says that nobody knows who she is, only that she’s “a genius at combat” and that everyone calls her “the Major”. How she came by that rank is somewhat up in the air. It should also be noted that this episode leaves it ambiguous whether this is something that actually happened or the whole thing was a story Saito made up to distract his poker buddies. Kusanagi didn’t get her rank through normal process, but by getting hired by the Department of Defense as an irregular for her exceptional talent. It’s heavily implied in the episode mentioned above that she is much more than she’s letting on, only masquerading as a common soldier.

So it was settled, and we signed me up. I joined the group, which was quickly separated by gender; the guys stood against one wall, and the girls against the opposite wall. Most of these ones seemed like creeps, so I was pretty glad that they were kicked to the curb by the organizers before they were able to interact with me. The waiver, by the way was a release for that show Geek Love, which was filming inside the sessions. Not like, HEAVILY so, but I can be a pretty nervous, socially-awkward person, and the fact that I was a hundred percent calm going into this situation is a reflection of how confident I was feeling.

I also had plenty of time to try and stare at Adam West, who was signing autographs in the Comic-Con distance. What really got under my skin was a woman sitting next to me who was very clearly looking to find her true love on this adventure; this made me feel uneasy about my less serious attitude. However, it became pretty clear that about half of the girls who signed up had just done it for shits and giggles, and one, it seemed, had been put up to it by her employers, Necromimi ; right before we went into the room, one of her coworkers magically appeared, offering us those cat ear headsets to wear during the speed dating round if we wanted them.

Anyway, as a result of all these borderline unethical shenanigans, I was starting to struggle slightly less with my own reasons for being there. So that was good. Then the guys were allowed in, and despite all being legal adults, we looked like a bunch of awkward tweens at a middle school dance. We were told to take our seats, and very fortunately the girls would remain seated for the duration of the speed dating process.

A Certain Magical Index: Within a space of roughly three seconds, she correctly identifies the history, style, and everything else about a giant rock monster that had just appeared. She later composes and sings a magical “song” that has the effect of deprogramming a living person’s mind and breaking the mental conditioning they’re under, after talking a bit with Misaka about the theory of subconscious learning through synesthesia a confirmed scientific phenomenon in the Raildex verse.

She does have , magical books stored in her head that she can draw on for data, but she still needs to be able to sort through all that information, analyze it, and determine how to use that knowledge.

The main organizer launched into some sort of intro speech, and while he was rambling about Star Wars or dating or Star Wars dating, the guy sitting across from me proceeded to mock the entire thing; he rolled his eyes and flexed his weird eyebrows and pretended to strangle the air, and it was awkward.

In , 11 Australian commandos , all white, disguised themselves as Malay fishermen by dyeing their skin brown and boarding a fishing boat. They sailed through 2, miles of Japanese-controlled ocean from Australia to Singapore. At one point they even traveled right alongside a Japanese warship without them noticing anything strange which was good, because none of the commandos could speak Malay.

They then took canoes right into Singapore Harbor, where they blew up seven Japanese ships before escaping. So racism is OK as long as you have plenty of bombs and canoes. Somehow, this totally worked, and she snagged the plans to a fort and the identities of some Confederate spies before ” escaping ” back to Union lines. Yet neither of her identities were allowed to vote. He found it in two Iraqi troops who were holding up the offensive.
