Re: Netflix Release General Discussion

What do you mean? He edited what they wrote inside the interviews? This makes no sense, really. Do you have any source for that? He edited the interview after it had be done, as is common, and in the process of doing so ended up making some questions lose their contexts, thus necessitating their re...

Re: Netflix Release General Discussion

From what I heard saying that Anno wrote Schizo/Parano is a mistranslation or misinterpretation - what actually happened was that in some cases Anno changed or edited his answers after the interview, and then had to edit the interviewers' comments.

Re: Netflix Release General Discussion

But the Spotify re-release of the first OST album is also missing the vocal FMTTM track while retaining instrumental ones. I suspect that that comes under a separate licensing deal. It's not available in all the countries that the Netflix release is, is it? In any case, it doesn't really make sense...

Re: Netflix Release General Discussion

I doubt it would, considering the instrumental versions were omitted from 15 and 21. My guess is that someone fucked up.

Oh god, not him again. I've talked to him on 4chan - he has these bizarre theories and will refuse to listen to evidence against them.

Re: Netflix Release General Discussion

I would like to point out that the like/love thing extends into other scenes as well - at least into the final scene of episode 26 (I'm sure you know the line I'm referring to).

Re: Tsurumaki defends Gendo (2002 interview)

Gendo is a complex character, and I certainly don't think (especially considering his inspiration) he's mean to be a villain or someone seen particularly negatively, especially not in the TV series - he's more negatively depicted in EoE and Rebuild.

Re: Apostles?

If you're referring to the clip of the end of Episode 1 that plays, both it and the description still say "Angels" in English. Probably some sort of fuckup by the Italian translators.

Re: EoE Final scene explained and connected to EoTV G.W.F Hegel.

EoTV's ending is as triumphant as it gets. EoE's ending is miserable and depressing. Even if you take a positive message away from the ending of EoE, it's hard to argue that it isn't far more downbeat than EoTV's.

Re: EoE Final scene explained and connected to EoTV G.W.F Hegel.

Anno specifically mentions the applause as "a bit weak", and in response to "So we can't think of [the ending] as [Shinji] being saved, or as it being happy." he says "Um, well, there are probably people who see it as a happy ending. For me, personally, it wasn't very happy....

Re: I think I've finally managed to put together a timeline of events surrounding the production of 25/26 & EoE

Yes, the second film was a serious project that was going to be written by Anno and everything that they legitmately intended to make. Sore o Nasumono was just Ikuto Yamashita and Seiji Kio tossing ideas around, and was never seriously considered as something to actually make.

This thread contains most of what I'm talking about, with particular emphasis on this: Anno: But I was speaking to myself. There was a regression back into the self.

Re: Rebuilds being a continuation of EoE?

I somehow doubt it's enough of an unlucky number to not use it in the title of a numerical sequel. And that's ignoring the rest of the evidence.

Re: Rebuilds being a continuation of EoE?

The original series spells "Evangelion" as "エヴァンゲリオン". The Rebuilds spell it as "ヱヴァンゲリヲン", but with 3.0+1.0 it's back to "エヴァンゲリオン". The title has also gone from "Evangelion New Theatrical Version" to "Shin (specifically not the kanji for "...

Re: EoE Final scene explained and connected to EoTV G.W.F Hegel.

Anno has never directly said it, but he did make statements around the time of EoE's production that he was unsatisfied with the message and themes of EoTV. To draw a line between that dissatisfication and the message and themes of EoE is not exactly hard.

Re: Rebuilds being a continuation of EoE?

A sequel in the traditional sense, probably not. But the titles of the final Rebuild film all but confirm some sort of connection to the original series.

Re: EoE Final scene explained and connected to EoTV G.W.F Hegel.

To do so is to deliberately reject Anno's intent, which is perhaps not invalid, but it's something that should be remembered when making statements about how the endings "fit together".

Re: EoE Final scene explained and connected to EoTV G.W.F Hegel.

The Hegelian stuff may be, but any sort of attempt to link EoE and EoTV is on dodgy ground, and it's on practically-collapsing ground if the attempt is to link the themes, considering EoE is partially a repudiation of the message and themes of EoTV.

Tell me your thoughts, as well as pointing out any possible holes. ⋅ The original plan is for episode 25 to be roughly similar to the first half of EoE (25'), with episode 26 being an amalgam of the 25 and 26 that were eventually broadcast.* ⋅ The original episode 25 is scrapped ...
