Re: "You know you're obsessed with NGE when" thread

I spent an entire year drafting, researching, and writing a sci-fi horror story (that I absolutely intend to turn into an animated film using 80s animation techniques) that heavily draws imagery, ideas, and character archetypes from Neon Genesis and End of, to the point where the penultimate scene i...

Re: Non-dialogue differences between English Dub and Original JP audio?

(If you didn't already know) I remember hearing during the commentary on either Death or EoE that when the master was shipped to the US, something had screwed up and there were none of the vocal noises from the Evas or Angels, and after rewatching EoE subbed after being so used to the dub, I can con...

Re: What would Rei be like with a little more personality?

As stupid and terrible as Angelic Days is, after forcing myself to read the first volume, I think she'd be a less optimistic version of the Rei we see in AD. If she was still the physical clone of Yui with the soul of Lilith, it would make sense for her to be very sweet and nurturing, like that one ...

Re: Who is the most attractive character

I gotta say Kaworu. He's so sweet and loving for a creature created specifically to end humanity. If he wasn't an Angel (and also, y'know, real), I'd definitely awkwardly ask him out.

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

I would likely do what Shinji did, let it happen, let everyone understand each other and gain perfect empathy for about an hour, and then end it. That way, we can live separately and have our own lives while still retaining our understanding of others. I believe that the final scene of End of is the...

Re: Meaning behind Asuka's Mom's Mixed Messages

The images predicting Asuka's death during the scene make me think Asuka's mom was trying to manipulate her into death, As metal as this sounds, I don't quite interpret it that way. The only part of Kyoko's soul that was successfully transferred was the maternal, loving parts, that's why synchroniz...

Re: Why did Nerv not make super soldiers

I do not think there are AIs in Eva's world. The two more sophisticated machines are Jet Alone and Magi, and they never shown sentience. The Evas are Cyborgs, Jet Alone was only a remote-controlled robot and Magi was a glorified calculator. (In EoE Magi gains consciousness and personality to save G...

Am I alone in having a love hate relationship with Elfen Lied?

It's such a good show, so very dark and overly violent. With incredible animation and delightfully creepy visuals- and then it turns into moe slice of life. I know it gets better as it goes on, and I love the mood whiplash the first few times it cuts between kawaii catgirl and blood, just blood ever...

Re: Who would win, Adam or Lilith

In every single canon, Lilith and her progenitors have been the victors over Adam, but if they were to go up against each other one on one, it's hard to tell. If Adam's true form is the Giant of Light, which is basically an Awakened Evangelion, and Lilith's true form is the giant Rei seen in EoE, I'...

Re: Why did Nerv not make super soldiers

This is a super interesting concept, I would've loved to have seen it explored in a spin-off manga (instead of wasting time and resources on trash like Angelic Days or Shinji Ikari Raising Project, which are essentially the exact same thing). With a ton of other "what if"s involving NERV, ...

No way, that's some special bullshit concocted for the New Theatrical. Or not, we'll see where they go with it. That's what I thought.

I think I figured out what those symbols in the last shot of the opening are

Kinda clickbaity, because I still don't know what they actually mean, but I do think I've figured out what they were GOING to mean. According to the Evangelion Proposal, one of the biggest unused early concepts in Neon Genesis are the ancient ruins of Arqua. Or Arka. Whatever. Anyways, looking at th...

Re: What would Evangelion be without Shinji?

Shinji serves as the audience surrogate. Anno designed his character to represent a part of him, the part that existed when he was younger. Anno was once a huge weeaboo shut-in, and he wanted to condense the feelings of isolation and depression that that lifestyle caused into a character that everyo...

Re: Floating Hair on Unit 01 in EoE

I always interpreted that as Unit 01's head without her helmet. Since Evangelions are pretty much just giant humans, it'd make sense for them to have hair. It seems like mostly an A E S T H E T I C decision, seeing as how the only other part of her without her armor/restraints is the area around her...

Re: Pen-Pen's Nature

Shinji was eye witness to his mother being absorbed by Unit 01, and thought she died. Was it ever stated in Neon Genesis that he had forgotten he was a witness? I know in New Theatrical, during the shogi scene, Fuyutsuki mentions that Shinji's "memories have since been erased" This is a s...

Re: Shinji, Kaworu, and Milgram

Another thing I noticed going over the footage of the experiment (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wdUu3u9Web4) is that even though subjects are told they can leave at any time, they're still heavily pressured to continue the experiment. This is very similar to Shinji wanting to run away, and being t...

Re: Shinji, Kaworu, and Milgram

I can't believe I forgot this very important bit: Subjects (those giving the shock) were told they could leave at any time, and keep their payment, but they were also told that the experiment was important. This almost guarantees that this experiment was a massive inspiration for Shinji's character,...
