A Tachikoma (Japanese: タチコマ?) is a fictional artificial intelligence, walker/roller in the Ghost in the Shell universe; appearing in the manga, created by Masamune Shirow, and the Stand Alone Complex sub-universe. Nine of them are assigned to Section 9’s use originally.3 They are spider-like, multi-legged combat vehicles, equipped with artificial intelligence. The spider design appears in other places in Shirow’s work, like the Appleseed manga. Shirow is noted to keep numerous spiders as pets.

A GitS inspired piece influenced by modern synthwave and 80s nostalgia art and music. I just wanted to cast the Major in my favorite pink and teal palette and make her real badass like a cyborg Sonny Crockett. Originally there was to be more Miami Vice aspects, but as usual I ended up playing it pretty straight. I'm no good at mashups.
