Re: Commentary: Episode 07

I have more comments: 096 : Because Misato can not dress like this during the whole series ?, especially in her work, I think this would help more to highlight her professional personality of the personal personality, besides, I have a small fetish for women wearing military clothes or the like. 331...

Re: Commentary: Episode 07

194: When they focus the screen on Misato's mouth, they seem to be giving a credence of authority over the situation, it seems to sound like a rematch for all the embarrassment that Tokita has made and Ritsuko pass, now they are in control, Tokita is impotent. 252: Not shown, but I always found it v...

Re: Let's Watch NGE Together! Unofficial Commentary Thread

I have always liked this scene when Samshel overtakes the lighthouse and is ringing the siren, I think it is that eminently dangerous sense of approaching. I always find it a little ridiculous to stand up straight from Shamshel, what is that? Plus the angle of the camera is even more unfavorable bec...

Re: If Evangelion had a clearer approach, would it lose its charm?

↑ This is the common guide for someone to enjoy any anime, things start to get strange when I need to resort to other means that are not anime to understand the story.

If Evangelion had a clearer approach, would it lose its charm?

I watched Evangelion in its entirety on 3 occasions, yet many mysteries were only discovered by me through research in wikia's on the internet. My point is, I'm not the only one who shares this feeling, even feeling guilty when I realize That other people understand their mysteries and for these rea...

Re: Let's Watch NGE Together! Unofficial Commentary Thread

Ok, the used cigarettes and the pencil-breaking. I think they are (what else?) phallic symbols. The cigarettes are limp, and the pencil is broken. Those symbolize the powerlessness of the JSSDF against the Angels. (You know how a cigarette is sometimes just a cigarette? Not if you're watching Eva, ...

Re: Let's Watch NGE Together! Unofficial Commentary Thread

Tip: You can put something to identify each scene as '' Ep01S02 '' so we can organize it more simply, even if it's informal, anyway, here are my comments: So, I do not want to be obvious and talk about Sachiel, I'd like to start with Ritsuko: the image shows no but Ritsuko seems to impose a strange ...

Re: Let's Watch NGE Together! Unofficial Commentary Thread

Is not there something like that already, like, Eva commentary Project? , Anyway, I wish I could comment on the episodes in a more informal way, I'm not the type to write theses or make very deep comments, so that seems perfect to me.

Gendo: Because I would not mind him having that evil behavior just for ego's sake, but then they fucked up saying that he wanted to join Yui. Misato: I liked Misato until episode 16, so she slapped Ritsuko, it's such a embarrassing moment, what did she want from Ritsuko?, Save her little boy instead...

Re: Will Eva become dated, or will it become more relevant with time?

^ If the only form of communication with others is through anonymity then yes that would lead to isolation. However, i think balance would be the answer, to have person to person relationships as well as reaping the benefits of the ease of communication that technology allows is the way to go. The ...

Re: Why NECESSARILY do the last 3 angels have those appearances?

Before there was only nomenclature as a reference to Christian angels, but look at Ramiel as an example, even though they were already vague, let's see: '' Râmîêl (Aramaic: רעמאנל, Hebrew: רעמיאל, Greek: 'Ραμιήλ) is both fallen observer and angel in the apocryphal book of Enoch. Ramiel means "t...

Exactly

Specifically the question is why sacrificing the design of two angels to express a vague symbolism of Christianity, to me does not make sense.

We have a luminescent bird, an equally bright eel and lastly a boy, Yes, I know, you're going to say that they all represent a symbolic sequence of the angelic stereotype of Christianity and so it's not worth discussing, but the question is , This is the height of symbolism! , what happened ? , They...

Re:

Asuka was expendable to him, just another pawn inhis game. Her life had no meaning to him. But she had utility as Eva's pilot for Gendo's plans, remember the dialogue in episode 24? , When Gendo tells Fuyutsuky that it would be a bad time to lose Unit 02 (I include Asuka in that), this after the Pl...

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

You still haven't really pointed out why having the symbols in the office is logically flawed. Okay , this is my last argument so I will not push anymore. Well, there's a lot of evidence in the anime that Gendo is an individual manipulator and likes to hide the facts, so I guess he would not be pre...

Going totally against the others on this topic, Evangelion has lost some of his charm to me, I do not know what happened, sometimes I seem to want to just see the flaws of the anime now, there are some things I preserve, the lessons he has gone through (Especially the last two episodes), I hold with...
