Re: Rewatching the Rebuilds, and my thoughts

Hate to agree with Ray again. Generally, if someone desires a happy ending, s/he can take those characters and build a paradise for them – in his or her own fanfiction. From this point of view, Anno will do his job well, if he delivers an emotional blow to all of us, doing something fairly unjust to...

Re: Rewatching the Rebuilds, and my thoughts

Right or wrong in art? I'd say I could discuss is this move beautiful or ugly. As a side note: if there were straight answers, this and other Evangelion communities would implode into religion and politics warhell, with occasional smalltalk about Mari's ass. :tongue: Instead we can discuss, I don't ...

Re: Rewatching the Rebuilds, and my thoughts

He is right though. A contemporary artwork is made to be contemplated by the audience and if author is serious about that, s/he grants the audience full freedom of coming up with various interpretations of it, ranking none of them above another and concealing the meaning s/he personally gave to it. ...

My apologies.

I was running away in my life way too long and too far, and now I'm overreacting, so to say.

Yaaawn. We've lived like Venezuelans for about, uhm... half a century?

Being Anno? :D Being Anno is the last thing I'd wish for myself, 'cause I know well that my creations would eventually invade my dreams to tear my mind into shreds for certain reasons we can see on screen. Unless of course I wrote before some kind of Tokyo-V for them as my side-project, where they w...

Naaah. He knows it's his eyes what is hollow, so he projects that onto the whole world to find some reason to throw rocks. And he doesn't care that he's just hit Sakura right in her teeth. He is Q-Gendo looking at the face of Q-Lilith at the foundations of the world and thinking: "Wow, I can be...

Should I understand this line so that you already live in your post-EoE world, and still nobody have emerged back from LCL to keep you company, because you actually are Gendo? :lol:

Re: NERV HQ - The Hierarchy of Needs

Oh... I always thought the pyramid is rather a reference to Ancient Egyptians, whose Pharaohs were notorious for incest marriages. :D It should be noted that Maslov's hierarchy has been so far thoroughly criticized on the ground of empirical surveys. It's been discovered that order of needs can chan...

Re: What You Did NOT Like About Evangelion

That's a hypothesis I could seriously consider. Mostly because (1) I agree with Mari when she says: this is how the world works, or to put it straightforward: happiness is not covered by the license issued for the mankind. Also (2) talking about love during a war of apocalyptic proportions makes me ...

Re: What You Did NOT Like About Evangelion

Think of it this way: What if Anno, for some reason, chose to include a similarly framed type of shot of Rei III in EOE directly following the sequence where Asuka gets killed by the MP Evas, that show her naked boobs jiggling while walking to wherever she's going with Gendo? The emotion from the p...

Re: From Your Lips to the Author's Ears: Story Ideas

'K. let's play along these new rules. How about a crossover between NGE and Deep Throat, focused on Asuka's misadventures with Angels and how much she liked them? Or between NGE and EP, where Vincent is gay and he clones male Asuka as a servant for his desires? Or, if nobody likes Mine Excellent Ide...

Pretty much WOW for that lecture on a subject I should know well as an ex-Christian.

Re: From Your Lips to the Author's Ears: Story Ideas

Misato would be a sutured aunt of course, at least until Ritsuko would hit the wall of " my child considers her mother". You know what to do next. As for Rei and Asuka, you could make them babysitters and when Asuka would try to turn it into a rivalry with "the favorite one" (you...

Re: Age and how you interpret Eva

Mmm-kay. I watched NGE in my 20ies in a German TV, so I couldn't grasp much of the narrative; I was basically "breathing the air" of the series, mostly by reading characters' emotions from seiyuus' voices (the show was subtitled). And for some reason I totally identified myself with Shinji...

Re: What is "Tabris"?

I'm by no measure English native speaker, but haven't you just mistook genii for genies ? Singular from genii is genius ; it was definitely Roman concept, not Arabic, and similar to Christian concept of guardian angel. Also, be very careful with Tabriz, as on the other side of Zagros Mountains there...
