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...

Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media

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...

I hope it does have an english dub available cause as much as i like eva, i'm not dealing with subtitles on my TV.

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.

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...
