Re: What is postinstrumentality existence?

Seele thinks the Ego is sort of constructed thing for dealing with other people, it wouldn't necessarily be death but a return to a state of infancy.

Re: Netflix English Dub Discussion

It's not awful per se, but given the hype, the opportunity and the investment, it had all the room to be so much more than simply "okay." Yea, the old dub had more "Energy" as did the sub. I really do like some of the voices but the dub itself is just kinda ok. but I am totally ...

Re: Netflix English Dub Discussion

Dub seems ok so far, I like Asuka and Rei's voices. I wouldn't say I like them as much as the old but they do seem a bit more real to me. On the other hand the Translation is awkward and everything seems a bit too subdued.

Re: The Tree of Life Significance

Clarke would be proud of this series for sure. That said, I definitely wouldn't call SEELE pseudo-Religious. The thing they're praising may not actually be a divine being of otherworldly origin (well, it is, but not in that sense) but they definitely act like the worst depiction of religion possibl...

Re: Was Yui nearly as bad as Gendo?

A lot of what Yui does seems to only make sense if 3I is inevitable, which from her dialog seems to be the case (Or at least she seems to think it is) so as horrifying as 3I is, I think thats the best she could do. It had to happen and thats the least awful way. anyway her stated actions seem to be ...

Re: (Accidental) Gnostic Parallels in Evangelion

Gnosticism and Science fiction have a long relationship. I'm actually writing a short article and Gnostic parallels in Lain. Its worth pointing out Gnosticism and Kabbalah have a close relationship, as do most wester mystic traditions.

Their are two roads to immortality cult classic that survives the generations and major success that influences everything. Animation aside NGE has the advantage that their is nothing really "like" it. so it will be popular with people who like that stuff unless more and better come out ou...

Re: First half or Second half of EoE: Which was better in your opinion?

25' great set up, seeing Shinji fall to his lowest lows is awesome. Violence porn, god help me I love it. everyone who needs to is killed off is neatly. Great pacing with the action. actual pacing action scenes is almost a lost art in Hollywood today so I give credit to old movies that do it. 26' ni...

Re: Do You Think Rei Was Un-Tanged Shortly After "Kimochi Warui"?

Based on my interpretation of Rei's character in Neon Genesis (at least the original anime series, my views of Sadamoto's manga differ), I highly doubt she would return to human form. Rei is clearly uncomfortable simply existing, she's the soul of a god forced into a fake body, a clone of someone w...

Re: EoE Final scene explained and connected to EoTV G.W.F Hegel.

Someone wrote something how Eva has heavy Lacan influence. Lacan was tremendously influenced by Hegal. I that that's one of the least explored areas of Eva.

Re: Grand unifying theory of Evangelion: Gendo the Janitor

He would really have to have some STEM background to run NERV, connections be damned, without some formal training he wouldn't even know what was going on or how to delegate. I mean look at the Manhattan project as the closet analog. At the high levels you wouldn't find anyone without "Doctor&q...

Re: Does Shinji deserve all the hate?

My personal opinion is that the vast majority of the Eva viewers don't actually understand it, in the anime fandom Eva is considered great in spite of its ending for example, not (also) because of the ending. I can't imagine how it's possible to dislike Shinji and like Eva at the same time, for me ...

Re: Does Shinji deserve all the hate?

I think people here gloss over some fairly horrible things he does. Jerk off scene the most obvious. He’s also really dependent on others. Your free to feel however you want about him but it’s not as if people only don’t like him just “cus he’s a wus!” And then this weird projection thing, people do...

Consistent preference for solitary activities. Very few, if any, close friends or personal relationship, and a lack of desire ...

Re: What would Evangelion be without Shinji?

People don't like being reminded of the flaws that exist within themselves. That is why so many people are "hateful" toward Shinji, because they don't want to admit that they've been like him. We don't want to admit when we're weak or vulnerable. He gets a lot of unnecessary hate by a lot...

Re: What would Evangelion be without Shinji?

Its worth noting you can think someone is an excellent character and not like them. I feel Their are people who like him, people who hate him, and people who think he's well written and not care for him as a person. Their are a lot of fictional characters like that.

Re: What would Evangelion be without Shinji?

Nothing, the vast majority of the show's substance is him. Even the other characters, some of which are very deep are developed in relation to him. With him no one remembers eva in 2000 let a lone 2017.
