Re: Introduction, Toxicity of AsuShin and other things

I was actually referring to the many posts on multiple threads regarding Asuka, and the many answers people had given me. Cept that they all almost unanimously would imply a conclusion contrary to the one you came to. It doesn't seem to me you're here to take input, more to reaffirm your own beliefs.

Nope, literally nothing from either gob or hodges post implied such a belief. You're forcing yourself to a conclusion.

Re: FanFiction Requests/Recommendations/Discussion etc.

Shipping, the forceful pairing of people irrelevant of their person desires is deeply unethical and should be punished with instrumentality.

Re: Introduction, Toxicity of AsuShin and other things

We DID answer your questions, but they kept looping around: you basically kept asking the same question in different ways over and over, and I think we've all felt we've covered ground that is either covered in detail elsewhere on the site, or is still being discussed in separate threads. At this p...

Re: Why I Don't Like Mari

Well, you're certainly consistent. I mean, if you view RahXephon as an NGE ripoff, I guess you're bound to see Rebuild the same way. Not really. Rebuild starts out telling NGE's story with variations and then diverges. RahXephon acts as if it is its own story but rip offs NGE for dialogue, plot, ch...

Re: Introduction, Toxicity of AsuShin and other things

Because what you're talking about is character development, which is an element of a character arc. The stuff that you're talking about with Asuka takes place during the 'falling action' phase of a character arc, following the penultimate moment of the character's story. Asuka's arc was concluded w...

Re: Why I Don't Like Mari

Rebuild is already filled with meta commentary I'd argue. 3.0 specifically (which imo is the best of the three, let's agree to disagree on that) seems to target RahXephon specifically (an online pal of mine could go more in-depth) to show how post-Eva works just took Eva's aesthetics to create more...

It's going to be part of my story's 5th chapter. Don't worry though, it's not just for the sake of it. Her shift from classical violin to a freer form of music is supposed to be symbolic.

Re: Introduction, Toxicity of AsuShin and other things

Character arcs don't include interpretations of the meaning behind events? It seems absurd you wouldn't consider a moment symbolic of character development part of an arc. Why are we drawing an arbitrary line at her death? Shouldn't "I need you" count given the audience can perceive the ev...

Re: Will Anno Try To Top The "Hospital Room Scene"? Can Anything Be As Messed Up?

The hospital room scene is important, both within terms of story beats and within terms of thematics and tone. Not only are there explicit call-backs to the scene (or the motivations behind said scene) later on in the film when Asuka says that she knows about Shinji's "jerk-off fantasies"...

Re: Will Anno Try To Top The "Hospital Room Scene"? Can Anything Be As Messed Up?

My feeling (both gut and analytical) is that the scene is there because Anno felt it should be there -- it allowed him to say something important to him that couldn't be said any other way -- and for such an intensely personal artistic work that is the only reason needed. Yeah, that's great and all...

Re: Introduction, Toxicity of AsuShin and other things

Also, Asuka'sBigBrother, just saw the top reply for the first time (I missed it). I would call Asuka's death at the hands of the MPE the conclusion of her character arc: there is more scenes with her, in Instrumentality and afterwards, but her time as a central character, with development and what ...

Re: Introduction, Toxicity of AsuShin and other things

I was never the things you did listen, people even called me a well behaved teen, no disobedient and all that. Anecdotal evidence isn't always something you should apply universally, so frankly, your personal story, which I can deeply empathize with given my own upbringing, isn't all that relevant ...

Re: Why I Don't Like Mari

4.0 is really going to be in uncharted territory because Rebuild has officially covered pretty much all of the original series' timeline, so Khara really has little choice but to make the most original film of the series. I'm holding out hope that the first three installments were intentionally wri...

You can't use "not enough screen time" as an excuse when you defend movies for spending screen time on things viewers don't have reason to be meaningfully invested in.
