Spotlight: Tachikoma {^^}

Posted on August 19, 2007. Filed under: Spotlights |

Tachikoma, from the series “Ghost in the Shell,” are as large as an baby elephant, are painted sky blue and have four “eyes” fitted on the surface of their bodies. 3 are on the head and 1 is beneath the abdomen. These eyes sometimes become expressive in the typical anime style. Tachikoma are controlled by individual artificial intelligence, are capable of speech, and generally exhibit a childish, curious, joyful and active personality, although they are consummate professionals in the field and work very hard. They normally operate as independent units and receive orders from human agents, but they can also be directly piloted from a cockpit in their abdomen.


Tachikoma have four legs and two arms. They can move by walking, or they can drive at high speed by using the wheeled footpads on each of their four legs. Each wheel appears to be angled and omnidirectional, allowing the Tachikomas to move in any direction with their holonomic drive system. Other abilities of the Tachikoma include jumping great distances, sticking to vertical or inverted surfaces, engaging an thermoptic camouflage mechanism, and grappling/rappelling using their adhesive string launchers. Tachikoma maintain control of their legs while using wheels to drive down a road, and shift their weight around turns. They can also roll briefly on to two legs while driving to avoid an obstacle or pass through a narrow space. To make balance easier, they can move their heavy abdomens with a ball joint.

Spotlight: Lelouch “Zero”

Posted on July 29, 2007. Filed under: Spotlights |

Lelouch is a 17-year-old student who attends Ashford Academy and is the son of the Britannia Imperial Family. He believes that the world has been thrown in a vicious circle of oppression and hatred that can only be broken if someone dared to step forth and win, even for the undesired outcome.


The reason why I am so enamored by his character is that he is very assertive, and always completes his goals with a frill. His eyes and face are very hawk-like, making his structure look very sharp. Lelouch reminds me very much so of Death Note’s ingenious protagonist: Raito Yagami


After he receives power from from a strange girl named C.C, he baptizes himself as “Zero.” Then, by allying himself with one of his classmate’s, or Kallen’s, resistance group, he starts a terrorist campaign against powerful rulers who oppress the helpless. Lelouch is willing to lie to his followers/ friends and use people as bait to assure the outcomes he desire.


“Zero” is such a beautiful character; everything about him is intriguing.
