Asuka and Prometheus

I'm surprised no one has pointed this out (or maybe they have and I'm just too dense to remember). The Greek myth of Prometheus is about a trickster, a "champion of humanity", known for creating humans from clay. He tricked Zeus by offering him two different sacrifices, beef in the stomach...

Re: Why people hate this show nowadays?

I assume that most people have a negative outlook on the series and film because of how it's presented to them. Gainax and Khara have absolutely zero presence in the West in the mainstream, and it doesn't help that Starchild Records is so fuckin greedy that it's literally impossible for any anime di...

ANNIHILATION theories

Despite the on-the-nose writing and the borrowing a little bit too much from ALIENS, I really enjoyed ANNIHILATION. Part of why I enjoyed it so much was because it left so much ambiguous. SO, I've decided to make a little thread for different theories people may have on the film. Here's one I create...

Re: I feel like Shinji will withdraw from everyone in 1.0+3.0

I think this depends on what Wille does with him. If Misato gives him nothing to do except wander the ship and try not to break anything, I assume he'll spend a lot of time making himself as scarce as possible and speaking to no one unless they initiate conversation with him. In that case, I think ...

I keep dreaming about EPCOT Centre.

Re: Currently playing 4: Guns of the Patriots

So I recently finished Episode Two and I'm still a bit fucked up over it. I had forgotten just how visceral and cold Eli's death is. I got both Fahrenheit Indigo Prophecy Remastered and Deus Ex on Steam a few days ago in a sale. I tried to start Fahrenheit but it was just too damn depressing for...

I feel like Shinji will withdraw from everyone in 1.0+3.0

Shinji was already pretty fragile and withdrawn before, but after trying to get close to others and it always going horrifically wrong, plus his interactions with two people in particular causing immense harm to both the entire planet and his personal psyche, I believe Shinji will become repressed a...

Re: Anyone ever see these? I can't find any information on them. They're unopened

Holy shit dude, you may have hit gold. VHS Evangelion releases are already pretty hard to find, and any US release of End of Eva is super difficult to get your hands on unless you use eBay, but Jesus Christ those are beautiful. No doubt a hidden gem in any collector's eyes, especially since they're ...

Re: Evangelion References and Homages

It's likely a coincidence, more of a reference to things like the Mothman and ghosts in general (my current theory is that he's in Xen and will occasionally break through dimensions to speak to those on Earth), but I couldn't help but notice the similarities between Half-Life's GMan and Rei Ayanami,...

A good EVA game 3nd Impact and Battle Orchestra are both pretty fuckin awesome. 3nd Impact does have a few lame game types (woo I love moving a thing up and down and pushing a button every few seconds), but is otherwise really good. Battle Orchestra is the best kind of Smash Bros clone, not to ment...

Re: Shinji Clenching His Fist Question

Amusingly enough, whoever wrote Shinji's character profile for TV Tropes apparently drew a connection between the clenching and the psychosomatic pain of Unit-01's arm being broken by Sachiel, believing it to be him subconsciously reassuring himself it's still there. I don't think that's really the...

Re: Currently playing 4: Guns of the Patriots

So right now I'm sort of past the mid point of the Half Life 2 saga, like, I'm in Chapter 4 of Episode One. Vanilla HL2 is fuckin amazing, it's currently my favorite Valve game, tied with Portal 2. Episode One is good so far, but nowhere near as engrossing and compelling as HL2. It seems to be much ...

Shortly afterwards, Unit 01 fires eye lasers of her own that we have never seen before, but s...
