Re: Songs that remind you of Evangelion

I'm gonna say "Fix You" by Coldplay.

While it works for me in a general way it primarily reminds me of Kaworus' relationship with Shinji (not the shippy type relationship but in a more general sense) especially in 3.0.

Re: Asuka's Angel contamination - what is it exactly?

I don't think there's enough information to make educated guesses. The only times whatever is behind the patch manifested itself was during beast mode and when she was watching Shinji fly away. The former can easily be attributed to the physical and maybe emotional stress beast mode causes the pilot...

Re: What would've you done different with Mari?

I'd say more general interactions with other chars, ones that don't revolve around combat. I mean the only time she talked to someone outside of combat was with Shinji when she boob slammed him as she arrived. I personally don't care that much about her background as she doesn't need a tragic or tho...

Re: Is Shikinami inspired by Moyoco?

^ Well not everything has to be tit-for-tat to provide inspiration, reading that quote i can see similarities with Shikinami and Misato in 3.0 that aren't there for other characters. Putting shipping aside is it rally that much of a stretch that Anno could've used his wife as inspiration for for som...

Re: at which point were you most angry/frustrated/disappointed with a character

^ Yandare Kaworu? Guess i'm just disappointed that it feels like his arc is unfinished but now with him being dead and all it doesn't seem like i'll get closure on that, unless ghost-Kaworu shows up in the last movie. I get his motivation (Shinji) but not the why behind it, i wanted more from him in...

Re: at which point were you most angry/frustrated/disappointed with a character

For me its NTE Kaworu, it's hard for me to tell if he's suppose to be a good guy type character or not. He offers happiness to Shinji and presents himself as his friend, but there's creepy underhanded manipulative undertones to his interactions with Shinji that makes me doubt if he truly cares about...

Re: Why would someone place a drawing of Sephiroth's tree in the ceiling of his office?

Basically what Sachi said, if someone had a poster of sugar water as its chemical formula in their office, how many people would actually know what it means? They'd probably just assume some sciency stuff and leave it at that.

Re: Why didn't Mari and Sakura blame Shinji for NTI?

Well Sakura is relatively young, so her knowledge may not be as expansive as Maris'. She knows about N3i and Shunjis role in it so while she treats him well there's some apprehension there as well. Though not enough to outright condemn him. Mari has always struck me as a glass half full type person,...

Re: Is Shikinami inspired by Moyoco?

I suppose it's possible, he has used aspects of himself for his characters before, with marriage and a new perspective from and of his partner i could see it happening.

Re: The most disturbing moment in Evangelion

For me from NGE its GNR, from its initial black sclera and tiny red eyes to the final shot of its giant decapitated head on the horizon, the whole thing is unnerving and creepy. From NTE it's Gendos' Rei head collection, i mean just why did he keep em?

Re: Do people still hate Evangelion 3.33?

It's kinda all in this exchange: Shinji: "But I knew nothing about this, I was just trying to save Ayanami! I had nothing to do with this!" Kaworu: "That may well be but that's not how the Lillim see it" This reminds me of something that's been bugging me for a while. How inform...

Re: Do people still hate Evangelion 3.33?

^ Why though? their actions were cold and a little cruel but not enough to justify a physical consequence to themselves. Asuka lost her eva and Misato temporarily lost the use of unit-2/8, isn't that enough physical consequence?

Re: One recurring complaint about EVA I've heard a lot.

This discussion brings up something interesting, if a fictional work made by and for a Japanese society can't be completely 'got' by a western perspective, does the opposite apply as well. For example a western perspective on prejudice like Zootopia , would the core message of that film not resonate...

Re: Do people still hate Evangelion 3.33?

In a way I'd say Misato and Asuka already received the consequences of their actions in 3,0, by alienating Shinji it allowed Gendo to easily sway him and further his goals, the complete opposite of what Willie would want. That's "punishment' enough, the knowledge that in an indirect way they he...

Re: How Evangelion Gets Away With Being Terrible

While there are criticisms to be made of the rebuilds, the video uses some rather shallow and easily debunked arguments, I mean as Gendo'sPapa said the video completely ignored 3.0 and how that movie destroys one of the main premises of the video in NGE escapism=bad NTE escapism=good.

Re: How misunderstood is Asuka?

Additionally, I'm pretty sure it's called the curse of Eva, because it is meant to be some sort of meta commentary about how people never grow out of Eva. I'm really looking forward to a 3.0 Complete Collection Book, where we will hopefully find answers what the exact thought process was behind thi...
