Re: The idea of a timeloop

Meme? In popular culture? I think it's a classical trope from the sci-fi genre. I know it mostly from Philip K. Dick's stories, but Stanisław Lem played with it (to get humorous effects) as well.

It's probably as old as the Einstein's work.

Re: Analysis: Um, Kaworu Is Good Actually

I am really curious is your limb off, I mean, this is Anno's creation after all, but still. In my opinion in Q you have Kaworu's motivations and intentions shoved right into your face. Look carefully at his place at NERV and employ your analytical superpowers to tell me what you can read from it. Be...

Re: The idea of a timeloop

With respect to the Reichu's work, which I still can somehow swallow if it happens to be proper decyphering of Annno's idea... NO. Because then it's quite obvious that tesseract intercepted in Q is coming from the future. If so, it opens a horrendous possibilty that we have two Shinjis in the movies...

So - I've listened to those Sagisu's tracks that Joseki uploaded (thanks!) and in the Track 2, starting from 2:11, I can hear a very clear rythm of a sentence "there will be Godzilla" . Lol? Also, nice arabian tunes and a reference to, if I'm not wrong, Cameron's Battle Angel Alita. Anothe...

Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media

My guess is the whole reason for this app's behavior is to make people cooperate and socialize, what is ultimately a good thing for you. If you think automatically you will make it through your life on your own only, as a sovereign individual, because the industry will take care for you all the time...

Re: Avant1 Ver0706 Kaworu Tangent

emotionally manipulative groomer In a way. The problem is, how actually not to groom Shinji, when he is what he is and acts as he acts. If he was a 4yo child, things would be clear; however he's a goddamn 14yo teen, who should already have some psychological defensive mechanisms developed and funct...

I'd say Q Kaworu is even more of a "pure" person than his NGE self. I really don't see how he manipulated Shinji. He did it by telling Shinji truth, sheer truth and only truth, but not the whole truth. Carefully prepared set of truths can lead a naive person anywhere a skilled manipulator...

^ Ah, this fits very well. But one interesting message from AVANT is: to successfully combat those changes we need godlike powers and technologies. However, in harsh reality we have none of those and we do next to nothing to prepare for climapocalyptic events when they come. We only do much chatter....

Well, I decode it this way: After that and THE END Go out of theatre and back to life, and DIE THERE. Because this is the normal course of things for us, mortal beings. So grow up to this. This would be a message that Anno wanted to send to the audience, and the second part would be a response he re...

And there's nothing strange in being fond of music from, let's say, late 60ies (the hippies' era) for a human being from our reality, living in an Occident country. That's not at all unusual for an European tho, at least not if they're from an educated background. Can confirm, as it is a standard in...

There's a fair chance that Nerv's workforce is made of human workers -- that have been turned into largely mindless lookalike drones. (See link above.) I dunno if the "replaced with automation" metaphor still works in that light. Makes me think more of wage slavery or something... We ours...

Thnking of this, maybe Anno set things this way and not another, because he thinks it is your job to make Mari meaningful in your fanfiction - instead of behaving like a spoiled consumer who's to lazy to do shit by himself, but he feels he's right to grumble and make demands. Don't you think? You ha...

Minor correction to the news article: A string of flying Mass Production Evas(?) are about to attack them so Mari launches in Unit-08 and starts flying through the air and firing at them (we’ve seen a preview of this bit before). She eventually runs out of ammunition and starts to kick and punch the...
