Weirdest Appropriate Marian Reference
I saw this tonight on the Ghost in the Shell series. Not to give any spoilers, but at one point, when a robot is about to be destroyed, there's a statue of Mary looking down on the scene. The robot hears a female voice praising it. The voice isn't Mary's, as it happens, but it is the voice of a sort of mother figure. It's an odd reference, but it worked for me.
