Re: If Mari and Asuka are/were Gay. . .

So, then what's the point of including her at all? And don't you say "commercial intent" just because there is one guy at Khara who may or may not have said that at one point - do you really believe that Anno would allow something into his masterpiece that doesn't have significance? If so...

Re: You Can Start Again

Lots of action and things happening without getting confusing, nothing to be paranoid about. So looks like things are finally hitting the fan, that does makes me wonder if uber Rei was actually after the Evas or simply using that tactic to lure the actual target to a more easily accessible area. Mar...

Re: Evangelion Final: 2020

2 more years to go huh? Well at least now we know for sure. Recent changes to the anime scene here in the west makes me hopeful for a quick release, now that sumildubs are a thing and with major anime movies being brought over faster than before. If Funimation can release the new DBS movie fully dub...

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

After seeing the teaser a couple of things come to mind. 1) Don't really care for the Diablomon look for Unit-8, sure it has the quick fix vibe but not a fan of it. 2) Don't like the redesigned plug suit, i loved the 2nd plugsuits of Mari and Asuka (especially Asuka) from 3.0. I loved how the color ...

Re: Mark .09, Adams Vessel, Unit 13, and the stolen AAA WUNDER

Core talk My thought process on this is figuring out if core corrosion is something intrinsic of cores or even just based on energy "levels". So the examples cited by Reichu, is the corrosion caused by the type of core or is it the high energy event involved (activation of Wunder and an a...

Re: Mark .09, Adams Vessel, Unit 13, and the stolen AAA WUNDER

I don't have a real explanation for why Eva-01 creates a core cocoon in the orbital prison, but the fact that she creates one in the Wunder as well is similarlyn unresolved matter, so I'll throw a wild guess out there. Tying into the idea that the Wunder was the Adams' ship, maybe the Adams (in the...

Re: If Shinji commits suicide...

Touching back on the topic of suicide, I don't think Shinji has it in him to attempt it, whether because he's more resilient than he seems or because he just doesn't think he's worth it. He didn't try after Kaworu told him the big lie or after Fuyutsuki shot down his last hope that he had at least ...

Re: Debate the quality of Rebuild here. [2]

I think one of the things that has hurt NTE compared to NGE is the huge time gap between "episodes". In NGE you'd only have to wait a week to see the next step of the story, and even its movie was only 2 years after the main series conclusion. It's been 6 years (and counting) since 3.0 so ...

Re: Evangelion's site and Facebook/Twitter covers updated with new images - First teases of Shin Eva

^ Pretty sure that scene is from the Shinji vs Asuka fight in 3.0. I'm assuming it's showcasing the way some scenes are animated. Might be wrong on this but doesn't Japanese animation do voice work later on in the process compared to western animation? I know that in Pixar stuff and TV cartoons voic...

Re: What are the "Adams"?

Right now i'm into the idea that the Wunder is itself an Adams. Now i know it sounds silly given that it's a giant ship but angelic entities have shown a certain...elasticity with their body shape. Zeruel grew a Rei body, Unit-1 was evolving into something different at the end of 2.0, Unit-13 grew t...

Re: Evangelion Pic Thread 10: The Society for the Appreciation Of The Premium Girl (and her friends)

Re: Will Anno Try To Top The "Hospital Room Scene"? Can Anything Be As Messed Up?

Well Shinji has shown a certain apathy towards his well being in the past, some examples that come to mind is at the end of 2.0. When he's in the angel shelter during zeruels attack, there's a shot where he still in it alone with the PA system alerting that that shelter isn't safe and should be evac...

Re: Rei or Asuka?

Several scenes originally from episodes 3 and 4 that imply he does it to feel needed are in 1.0 as well (like when Misato scolds him after coming back). To be honest i've only seen 1.0 a couple of times, so i'll take your word for it and stand corrected. This is a matter of perspective I guess, I d...

Re: Rebuild outside of Evageeks: Many reactions

I think something to remember is that sites such as EVGks are as insular as any other fan sites of different fictional works, it's a place where things are discussed and analyzed, meaning that you arrive at a certain understanding of it that you wouldn't get from more casual places or discussions.

Re: Will Anno Try To Top The "Hospital Room Scene"? Can Anything Be As Messed Up?

Well i can think of one way to one up it, an attempted suicide scene. Something like a minute long (or longer) scene with no music and just muffled sound effects as Shinji goes through the motions of his attempt. That would convey a certain state of mind and be shocking enough for an audience that i...

Re: Rei or Asuka?

He is still piloting just to feel needed, he has clearly still a hard time truly connecting with people, and 3.0 points out how he has a huge problem with change (you'd rather live in a merciless void of a world). He'll also have to get over the fact that he is partly responsible for the end of the...

On topic I'd day it's probably Asuka by default no? The whole "if it's a boy Shinji if a girl Rei" plus the whole mother clone thing makes Rei way WAY too incesty. Fuyutsuki tells Shinji in Q that Rei is a replica of Yui from the "data" that was all remaining of her; so actually ...

Re: Rewatching the Rebuilds, and my thoughts

-There's some genuinely great shots that help to convey particular moods (the far-off shot of Rei and Gendo eating dinner is appropriately distant, I like the closeness used in the various shots when Shinji and Asuka share the same bed). This sounds silly, but think of it this way: if one minor asp...
