Re: What directors would you like seeing tackle Evangelion in the future?

Ari Aster, Hereditary dir. definitely. He does such a good job of conveying true terror and discomfort, and clearly has a penchant for using all-practical effects when working with live action. Shane Acker is another one, director of the CG horror thriller no one went to see, 9. He's excellent with ...

Re: An Observation on the Evas

Call me shallow, but I always just saw them (except for the soulless Unit 00) as giant human/adam/lilith hybrid bodies with human souls, always alive and active (shown by the fact that Unit 01 can open and close her eyes to look at Shinji in the Cage in ep1) but physically restrained by their 'armor...

Re: Rebuild's Strongest Aspect(s)

I don't know if this was posted yet, but I have a theory that it's revenge against the dense Otaku that took NGE's message the opposite way it was intended, causing Japan's shut-in culture to become even worse with Evangelion as one of Japan's biggest media franchises. He's giving the fans exactly w...

Re: First look at Unit 08 and Mari from the theatrical teaser for 3.0+1.0

Oh shit, I just noticed something. You know how in 2.22 (or is it 1.11?) when the NERV staff is walking through a bright grey-white corridor with Unit 01 on their left being circled by huge hoops? I wonder if one of those hoops was used as the big circle that attaches Unit 08's loader arms to the bo...

Re: Steven Universe general

That entire arc was all I've wanted for the past four years. My favourite part, unquestionably, was "I've felt worse". Such a badass line, that also works as a way to show people with depression or anxiety that they can use their horrible past or present as a strength.

Steam/PC thread

The fact that I have to boot Steam in offline mode after getting only things on my wishlist under $10 each shows just how little self control I have. Also, NiGHTS into Dreams, one of the greatest games of all time, is only $1.19 right now, so uh... don't wait until the game's anniversary, get it now.

Re: SEGA General

I've seen a few others on the Steam discussion page stating that the game slows down immensely when obtaining the Trick Ribbon state, which I've experienced as of late as well, despite upgrading to much better hardwar...

Hideaki Anno, Mari, and destroying Eva

So in an interview a few years ago, when asked about Mari, Anno said he wanted her to "destroy Eva". I always saw this as a self aware nod to the fact that she's clearly only in the films to sell merch to horny weebs- until last night. I was thinking about this quote while showering when I...

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 ...

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...
