Brain Scratch

Here's the episode of Cowboy Bebop that reminded me of Mariko Mori:

I suggest watching the first 3 or so minutes/ this entire series!!! It's a great show. High qual.
"Brain Scratch"
"Burein Sukuracchi" (ブレイン・スクラッチ)
April 02, 1999
Unbeknownst to the rest of the Bebop crew, Faye goes undercover in SCRATCH, a cult that believes in achieving eternal life by digitizing the soul and uploading it into the internet. 100 cult members have committed suicide so there is a bounty on the leader's head. This way she can eliminate her debt, but she falls unconscious in a giant room with a pyramid of TVs, all with the cult leader's face on. Spike approaches cult members canvassing but cannot meet their leader- Dr. Londes. Jet puts on the AR headset the cult provides and nearly falls unconcoius before Ein bites his leg and saves him. Edward discovers Dr. Londes' past was faked, he is actually a 15-year-old in a coma for two years. While Spike uselessly shoots at Londes' screen faces, Jet and Edward bluff their way into the hospital and unplug the link to the boy's brain.
