Re: How many people in this forum would support an Instrumentality for mankind?

If I had an Asuka who clearly hates Instrumentality, then no, I won't support Instrumentality. Otherwise, though, why the fuck not? What the fuck is the point of living in the real world? I'm not trying to bring this discussion back over again, but your suicidal speech doesn't make much sense withi...

Did the EVA-02 "wake up" twice in EoE?

In the series the only hint we have is what happens when EVA 01 enters Berserk mode. That makes difficult to me understand how EVA 02's berserk mode works. Ok, so IIUC, the first awakening of EVA 02 is not berserk, because he ran out of electric supply, right? But that dazes me a little, because he ...

Re: Anyone else feel dislike towards EoE nowadays?

I think Neon Genesis Evangelion works perfectly on its own without End of Evangelion . A movie like EoE is the conclusion that EVA needed. In the show there were still many loose ends that we need to be resolved. I'm not saying that EoE leaves no loose ends, however not only fixes some, but it's li...

Re: What was Rei III thinking about Gendo's glasses?

I agree with you that it was anger, but not that it was because of her death. Rei was never afraid of death. And Shiji told her that Rei II sacrifices herself to save her. I am not saying she was afraid of death. She accepts death, but the thing is, Gendo didn't let her to die. Even when she did, s...

Re: C.T.1290 versus Asuka. Examining the good and bad.

Well, by good, I mean by a person who always do what is right(or as often as they can). And someone who doesn't always treat people like crap(which is exactly what Asuka did). And someone who is honest, self righteous, caring, kind, thoughtful, willing to help for other's sake, asks no reward in re...

Re: C.T.1290 versus Asuka. Examining the good and bad.

So she did some self reflection. But that doesn't mean she's not the least bit sorry for how she treated others after coming back from Instrumentality, does it? But that's the thing. Asuka is not some sort of hero that has certain moral dilemmas about feeling bad for not saving people or others fee...

Re: What was Rei III thinking about Gendo's glasses?

I always thought it was anger. She remembered (with her feelings) how being dependent on Gendo led her to death. That's why she cries. She feels useless, used and out of love for Gendo.

Re: [Film] James Cameron's Avatar

Oh, what a mixed-feelings movie. Even to this day I can't tell whether this movie is average, mediocre or plainly bad. The thing is, James Cameron is a genius... by tricking you into thinking what you're watching is any good. He did the same with Titanic. Here it's the same, but with even better dis...

Re: C.T.1290 versus Asuka. Examining the good and bad.

^Hmmm. I've never really expected that Asuka would actually feel guilty (ashamed even) for the way she treated others. Not for the way she treated others, but for the way she sees herself. In the moment she says that she is very vulnerable, and for a moment she is not in a -let's say- defensive pos...

Re: C.T.1290 versus Asuka. Examining the good and bad.

What do you mean by that her inner self isn't there. We must remember that her brave(yet cocky) personality is her front, or at least some extension of her personality. So you mean to say that her arrogant and proud attitude is all that is there, so she therefore can't be humbled? Even if you ignor...

Re: C.T.1290 versus Asuka. Examining the good and bad.

I think you people who try to guess if Asuka is "bad" or "good" are treading water. Real people is not good or bad. People does shitty things, and people usually achieve great things. First of all, you are morally judging or in general? I mean, you are discussing the fact that sh...

Re: Did Evangelion really run out of budget?

Thanks gwen for your thread. I see for the stuff you guys send that production scheduling was the problem number 1. Problem number 2 seems to be money, at least for me. I mean, animators in NGE were hardly getting paid and the truth is behind every production problem there is a money problem involve...

Re: Revolutionary Girl Utena

That's how I perceived the first half. First-watch problems. You don't know what to expect and what the show is going for. And Utena is especially obtuse. I 've only watched 8 episodes, so I obviously can't judge the series. I actually know that the show is going for something deep, philosophical, ...

This movie is the most unintentionally hilarious movie I've seen in a while. Light killing people to get laid with Misa? CHECKED. Ryuk being a crazy psychopath (because is a "monster" and according to the Hollywood lore, monster = gore)? CHECKED. Light being a total dickhead until the last...

Re: Hayao Miyazaki updates enemies list

No offense but Miyazaki is pretty narrow-minded. Everything has to be his own way, or it sucks. If someone has a different way to proceed, he doesn't know anything about life, pain, art, etcetera. It's the typical snob pretentious dipshit argument. I mean, the guy has enough merits to be full of him...

I put this on-hold. I know people love Utena to death, but I couldn't pass through it. Cheap homoerotic romance, cutesy absurd plot and magical girl parody isn't my thing. Maybe one day I'll complete it, but 39 episodes of this is like climbing the Everest with no arms (for me).

I agree that the ending of Death Note was pretty rushed, but I don't dislike it at all.

I also like Matsuda killing him, because he proved that not only is a ...

Yeah. Even though I have my problems with EoE, I have to admit that is totally true. I've never felt anything from the series left aside in EoE.
