Where on earth do you live? I want to move there.


Now you're just being obtuse. Calling the planet a dystopia or an utopia renders either, or both, words meaningless. It's like saying modern society is cyberpunk. Enough derailing!

Re: I attack your weak point for massive damage.

I don't really see what this has to do with the part of my post you quoted. But anyway, that's what SEELE was for. That's why they kept scolding Gendo and threatened to fire him multiple times, not to mention outright stating several times that it was a mistake to hire him in the first ...

Re: I attack your weak point for massive damage.

Yes, there are. But just because a character is unsavory or unlikable or mean or cruel doesn't mean you can't (or shouldn't) care about or sympathize with them. I can understand, but only in the same way someone watching a soap opera can understand characters' motivations. D...

Hey, I liked Rahxephon. And Gundam pilots are mental cases most of the time, too. I don't know why I like mobile suit pilots better than Eva ones. Maybe it's because in a human vs. human war, PTSD seems more excusable. Or more relatable. Amuro never got to go to school during the One Year Wa...

No, what I'm saying is that your previous argument is nonsensical. And now you're either kidding or you're making a totally contradictory one to defend it. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/WMG/RebuildOfEvangelion Mari Illustrious will be a Deconstruction of the Mary Sue The accusat...

Shinji used to be a relatable but flawed kid who always wanted to do the right thing, but didn't always know what it was or have the confidence to do it. In 2.0 he has a significant comparative lack of regard for human life (see this thread for examples and more info), and his originall...

I've heard that Mari is supposed to be the deconstruction of the Mary Sue. I hope that's true, because that means the creators are cleverer than you and postmodern intertextuality quantum relativity or whatevs justifies any sort of plot-contriveness. Then again, I've always been a pro-Ma...

Here's a few more- Apostasy by DrerrRedclaw - a oneshot, and would fit in 3. almost 4. Seems like aside from A/S (which the story focuses on) Makoto and Misato are alive as well. Got some interesting Eva vs. human action going on in Africa. I'm a sucker for the mundane side to NGE, s...

Evangelion has grittier and more realistic style, but Rahxephon is definitely prettier. You can argue that NGE's aesthetics is superior, but you can't say it's more attractive or better-looking, because the realistic style makes things ugly by default. Not that ugly is a bad thing becaus...

The animation is more realistic but with with reality comes the gritty ugliness whereas blue is much easier on the eyes. And even if the characters had more depth I still wanted to kill 90% or so of them. NGE exists in a defective world where the medical field of psychopharmacology was cut short by ...

Rahxephon is essentially NGE with more well-adjusted characters, prettier animation, and Mayan music instead of Kabbalah pop psychology. The ending is a bit lame since there was no epic battle scene and I couldn't really buy the emotional resolution that led to the ending (one gets the impre...

Seriously, is that a depressing ending that Lovecraft would be proud of, or what. And Kensuke's obsessive madness? And the mecha cult? Creepy as hell.

Adam Kadmon's "I Knew Him When"

This story has to be positively one of the most haunting depictions of post-Third Impact insanity, I whole-heartedly suggest you read it if you want to see a really really grim ending that is something right out of the Lovecraft. The survivors of Third Impact have gradually returned from the goop o...
