Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

I've just finished Fate/Zero . It has beautifully showcased Urobuchi's talents as an honest writer, who peers into the depths of human nature. The ending especially, took various characters to their logical conclusions (much like Madoka: Rebellion ), in a way that makes you go "Oh, well... you'...

Re: What manga are you reading right now?

Managed to get my hands on a copy of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure , vol. 1 of Part I, Phantom Blood. This really has to be appreciated as parody of the first order. Everyone is so pathetically transparent with their intentions, and the plot is so heavily cliched... it's very much "so bad it's good&...

Re: Shamshel's Gender

:bigeyes: Well these were interesting replies. Can't say this is what I had in mind when I started the thread... To be perfectly honest, I am of the opinion that the Angels ('cept #17 and #18) do not have sex organs as such. However, in a way, the Angels can be understood to represent one or both se...

Re: Evangelion References and Homages

Watching Darker than Black , I've noticed some apparent references/homages/vague similarities to NGE. https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/355073080982503435/441769817066700810/unknown.png https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/355073080982503435/441769986437152768/unknown.png https://cdn.discorda...

Re: Shamshel's Gender

On a related note, how did people besides Reichu decide Ramiel was female? I kinda have a hard time labeling something with a biological sex when it doesn't even look outwardly organic, even if it is so internally. For that matter, how do we know the Angels have biological sex at all, especially wh...

Shamshel's Gender

(The following is only partially tongue-in-cheek; I do believe there is some merit to it, which is why I haven't put it in chitchat.) Hello all. I believe I have figured out why Yoshitoh Asari depicted Shamshel as female, and I believe that the evidence supports the claim that this may even have bee...

Re: Full Metal Panic.

This is actually a good question... (I personally happen to like Tessa very much, both as a character, and also because she's voiced by Yukana, who voiced C.C. in Code Geass (whom she resembles in certain ways, being that they're both variations of the Rei expy (though C.C. is far more nontraditiona...

Re: FLCL: Seasons 2 and 3

I promise there will be a lot of "men" who will say it doesn't work because FLCL is "actually a story about boys going through puberty and it just doesn't work with a girl in the lead role" - and then the second new season ( Alternative ) may be given a pass once people accept t...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

I've recently begun watching the Japan Animator's Expo , from 2015 (I think it was). I'll try to keep my impressions of each short on their own. (So far, I've seen the first 9, and written impressions on 6) The Dragon Dentist was cool, and I remembered hearing that nearly all the voices in the short...

Re: NGE2: First Ancestral Race and Seeds of Life

Potentially dumb question:

The ATF is projected by the soul. This ATF is what binds the body (at least in the case of non-Lilith-descended Angels) together. So, if the Stay Puft Marshmallow Woman doesn't have a soul in her, how could she maintain her shape?

Re: Soooo who's Unit 0's soul?

This is indeed an old question, and this article deals with it in heavy detail. https://wiki.evageeks.org/Eva-00%27s_soul tl;dr, it's another part of Rei's soul; it's the soul of Rei I, the child killed by Ritsuko's mother. It's compatible with her because it is her. Also, you don't need to put seri...

Re: Share Your EVA Fan Art Here

Well, in this particular thread, I'd say it would have to be something that you drew, or made yourself, that depicts a character or setting from Evangelion.
