Re: Whitewashing And Diversity In Hollywood?

So roles suited to people of color should be reserved for similarly ethnic actors, but you think it's "pretty cool" to assign minority actors to roles of established white characters? You can't have it both ways, hypocrite. I think this is the main point that is not mentioned quite often ...

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

... no. I think it's a moderately interesting topic to write about, but there are too many large-scale variables to give some sort of accurate representation of what these 'new' characters would be like. That, and it's too political for my personal taste, and I don't think a radical change like tha...

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

I find the idea of having a Cold War EVA-setting interesting, in particular how it would affect operation of NERV and SEELE, and further the characters. Now when i talk about such scenario, i am not talking about the typical NATO/Eastern Bloc setting, but a more complicated US sphere of influence/So...

Re: Animals and vegetables in Instrumentality?

I agree with Reichu's point that Instrumentality seems to be specific only to Humans, not other creatures. It also gives me the question of how animals and especially plants could be included in instrumentality and be aware of it. I do not believe a cherry tree has a great ambition to be united with...

Re: Evangelion and Personality Disorders.

Woot! I definitely think he does have some avpd that's why he's so miserable because it makes his dpd more difficult. As for the house broken male thing, I dont mean that he did house who. I might be miss remembering, but didn't give up and just do as he was told before that. I'm thinking maybe the...

Re: Evangelion and Personality Disorders.

I would go for DPD. Apart from avoiding being alone, he fulfils the symptoms of the disorder quite well. In contrast, he has many of the Symptoms of AVDP too, although he does want to become closer with people. This is most obvious when he let his defences down Kaworu. A mistake. What comes to Rei's...

Re: I need your help [new guy questions]

So we come to the 3 options that remain; 1. Ikari x Soryu 2. Ikari x Ayanami 3. None of the above. As i already stated, i believe in option 3 quite strongly, even coming to the point of seeing Soryu and Ikari as rivals. However, i don't see option 1 as impossible either. After all, Soryu is with him...

Re: I need your help

The "How disgusting" can also be spun in numerous different ways: It can be directed at Shinji, directed at the state of the world, directed at Instrumentallity, directed at what the MP Evas did to her and Unit 2, a show that it really is Asuka talking to Shinji and not another reality fr...

Re: I need your help

You mean the ending scene? Oh, that can be interpreted a number of ways, but here's my opinion of it: Just because you have a life-changing catharsis doesn't necessarily mean that everything will always be hunky-dory. There's still a possibly of you fumbling and yes, maybe even relapsing. But as lo...

Re: I need your help

What makes you say that? Yes, Shinji screwed up and has a lot to make up for, but that doesn't mean that his life is over and doomed, and he should just fade away. It's not just him screwing up, but the others around him giving him quite unfair treatment, especially Soryu. Note how he gets on to fi...

Re: I need your help

I somewhat support this, it is true that Rei was created as the critique to the ''Otaku Dream'', and Anno apparently expected everyone to be disgusted at her and her unrealistic nature. But needless to say, he failed. What comes to her being a doll, she is a purpose-built ''person'' with a clearly d...

Re: Who is the EVA character you feel most sorry for?

Probably Gendo. Not that I don't think he got his just deserts.I do and he deserved it all but it's just really tragic when you consider how messed up he is. I dunno just feel like he is just really messed up person and it's unfortunate. And Rei. I feel like she never had a chance. Not having a cha...

Re: Who is the EVA character you feel most sorry for?

One could feel sorry for Fuyutsuki, surrounded by lunatics and problem-children. I'd go insane in a few weeks in his position. But for me, it is either a tie between Ikari and Soryu, or the late Rei II. The reason for this goes that while the competing duo are in their state for most of the series, ...

Re: Who is the EVA character you feel most sorry for?

Well, you could argue that she had the toughest past of the pilots, but Shinji comes very close. I know very little on Suzuhara, and Rei has no past at all. But her attitude on the field makes her seem much more stable, although we know this is probably false. I feel that a lot of people warmed up m...

Re: Who is the EVA character you feel most sorry for?

Sohryu Asuka Langley, of course. She is the one who comes closest to being the innocent victim even in the original series alone, without having a movie that sets out to kerb-stomp her. I'm not really sure about her innocence, as with any other character. She does after all, have some quite negativ...

Re: [Poll] What episodes of Neon Genesis Evangelion do you like and dislike?

My personal favourite was likely episode 23. Plotwise it clears a lot out of the way and connects many of the strings together. Nevertheless, it also features the 'death' of a main character.

Re: Who is the EVA character you feel most sorry for?

Kaworu's short life is something he accepts much easier than the other characters, as well as something he enjoyed while he was alive. I empathize much more with characters like Shinji and Asuka (original series), so they get my vote. Well they both have had difficult situations. Both have one of t...

Re: Who is the EVA character you feel most sorry for?

^^ Kaworu (in the series) is like a dragonfly (damsel fly); he emerges fully-formed and beautiful from his chrysalis to perform the limited role that fate has decreed for him, only to discover that it must end in death within hours/days. How can anyone not be sad for him? You do make a good point o...

Re: Who is the EVA character you feel most sorry for?

I have trouble exactly defining my thoughts on Nagisa, since he is somewhat of a shady character on the show. He appears to be self-confident during his appearances and is aware of his surroundings. Although we do not get to exactly see things from his perspective, he seems to be relatively content....
