Re: You Can Start Again

That was a good chapter, it didn't get confusing considering written battle scenes can turn to a culestercuss quickly but you managed to avoid that and keep things easy to follow. Still these endings remind of of the early Jojo episodes (a good thing), that "to be continued" leaving you wa...

Re: "EVANGELION:3.0+1.0 AVANT 1 (from beginning to 10:40) Version 0706" discussion and prediction thread

I'd like to think those bigass antennas are for communicating with a moon base or some sort of geosynchronous station/s. In 2.0 they already had fairly developed space faring tech, now with all that went down, i think it'd be likely that humanity would look to space as a backup plan in case WILLIE f...

Re: Netflix English Dub Discussion

So just watched the EoE dub and i honestly found it somewhat disappointing, while the secondary characters were good some of the main ones were just not that good. Shinji and Asuka being the main ones. Shinji straight up sounds like a woman and it became so distracting hearing that kind of voice com...

Re: Mari's vow to Shinji

^ I've always found it odd just how prevalent the mindset of "Shinji destroyed the world" is amongst the general eva fandom. I mean it's not like the movie was subtle about it, it's one of the few things the movie hits you with head on. From the dialog to the visuals, "something big&q...

Re: Trailer 2 discussion thread

An odd thought occurred to me, what if "overlap" isn't about fusion but rather take over. as in the Mark9 taking over the Wunder. What if Unit 8 will be used to "take over" another eva, even if only temporarily?

Re: Rei #6 and the Programmable Human

@Reichu : To be fair Lilliths body is a bloated decaying mess by the time of 3.0 and without knowing the sequence of events, i tend to go for the simplest explanation. The 12th angel core "spawns" a bunch of images of Rei heads before being swallowed and the only eva we know for sure it i...

Re: Mari's vow to Shinji

Bit off topic but i didn't think Mari is responsible for what Shinji did. I think it shows two ways Shinji reacts to things happening in his life. N3I is related back to the 9th angel incident, In that one Shinji refused to do anything and so he lost any and all agency in the outcome. In N3I he did ...

Re: Mari's vow to Shinji

I think it just means that Mari is able to look at Shinji in an objective fashion. The way i see it Misato sees him as a reminder of the mistakes of the past, Asuka is a bundle of conflicting emotions regarding Shinji, the rest of Willie at large distrust him. Mari on the other hand is able to see h...

Re: Rei #6 and the Programmable Human

- When Seele's program took control of Mark.09, it started to operate without the pilot's inputs, autonomously. Just a few minutes earlier, we're also made aware of an Eva unit which too was turned autonomous: Mark.06. Could it be that Seele's program was behind it too? I think that's what literall...

Re: Analysis: Um, Kaworu Is Good Actually

While i wouldn't say Kaworu is a bad guy he isn't good either. NTE Kaworu is far more grey than his NGEtv counterpart. His infatuation with Shinji is so all consuming and based on his idea of who and what Shinji is rather then who he actually is, that it completely blinds him to Shinjis nature. He h...

Re: Trailer 2 discussion thread

I wonder if 2 of those Shinji scenes take place in a "train" sequence type thing. Like he's having them while on the journey to w/e Asuka is taking them. Kaworu is one dead giveaway but even in the scene with the SDAT he looks to have his shirt from the school uniform.

Re: "EVANGELION:3.0+1.0 AVANT 1 (from beginning to 10:40) Version 0706" discussion and prediction thread

So after watching this preview the best word i could say to surmise my feelings about it is, underwhelming. There really wasn't anything that made me hype for it, and in some aspects it was kinda the opposite. For the first time i found myself thinking an actions sequence was, for the lack of a bett...

Re: First look at Unit 08 and Mari from the theatrical teaser for 3.0+1.0

If memory serves the chopper fleet that was leaving the Wunder near the beginning had the UN logo. So that'd be my guess to where funding and resources come from. It's also important to remember that 3.0 had a very myopic perspective, we only see the immediate area around Nerv and not much else. Lik...

Re: [NEWS] Neon Genesis Evangelion coming to Netflix Spring 2019

^ I dunno, Eva is not exactly first watch friendly. So while there might some increase in Eva related internet traffic i think there is also a bit of overestimation to its general popularity. Unfortunately Eva is more commonly known through memes than its content and message, so i'm personally keepi...

Well on one hand that Unit-1 has both arms, but on the other, toy/figurine lines have spoiled movie content before.

Re: Does Asuka see Shinji as her Senpai?

Asuka sees herself as the best Eva pilot, and, while her interactions with Shinji and Rei convince her that teamwork and friendship is the better path than being a lone wolf, Asuka never admits that she isn’t the best Eva pilot. If anything, the movies still leaves us assuming that Asuka thinks tha...

Does Asuka see Shinji as her Senpai?

Yes i know the title is a bit clickbaity but as weird as it sounds it's something I think best describes the way rebuild handles Asukas relationship with Shinji. Without making a big post I'll try and make the case. Asuka starts out as a rather self centered loner that believes she needs only hersel...

Re: What are aspects you actually like about Shikinami compared to Soryu as a character?

I'd say it's the fact that Shikinami isn't a social butterfly. It's the one thing that never made much sense to me regarding Soryu, given her background it's so weird how easily she is able to fake being social and open. Soryu didn't want to open herself and desired "adultness" above anyth...
