JEt Alone Kai/Prime/2/Improved/Whatever you wanna call it We never went through this on the Discord? :chinscratch: Coulda sworn... You can safely call it "Jet Alone 2" in English. This is what's used in the actual game , both in the in-game graphics and in the (never-seen-by-the-player) c...

Re: Shinji Clenching His Fist Question

There's a version of the clenching-unclenching tic while Shinji is trying to talk to Gendo on the phone in episode 11. It would also feel incomplete not to mention Shinji's delayed response to getting a handful of cloned mom breast in episode 05. :devil:

Re: Taking in Zeruel's S^2 Organ caused Unit 01 to physically change

I hadn't really thought about it before, but aren't most of the Evas' internal organs vestigal? I'm sort of hesitant to use the word "vestigial" in this particular context. In the normally understood evobio sense, a vestige is a remnant of a previously more "complicated" or &quo...

Re: Taking in Zeruel's S^2 Organ caused Unit 01 to physically change

The Evas' under-armor design is an inconsistent mess from beginning to end. No two ways around it. - I'm sure the forehead patch is meant to look like the "Angel Face". In-series, yeah, this serves the purpose of foreshadowing, along with arguably Adam Kadmon-y sorts of things. (Check out ...

Re: Taking in Zeruel's S^2 Organ caused Unit 01 to physically change

There's no indication of a textural difference on Eva-01's forehead, so I always just took it to be a paler patch of skin with a couple of eye-like spots, and not something ossified. As for the nostrils, those are the four holes in front of the eyes. These are positioned higher on the other Evas for...

Re: [Film] James Cameron's Avatar

If you are that sensitive about people only responding to the meat of your post, then don't bloat your outrage with lazy assumptions you can't even be bothered to (easily) double-check the validity of before making. All that's doing is asking the kinds of people who would otherwise not respond to th...

Re: [Film] James Cameron's Avatar

If a conlanger using a diaeresis to distinguish one of the vowels of the Na'vi language offends you, I think you might just be looking for things to be outraged by.

Re: Eva 01 themed shinkansen train

Alas, the train being a lady is a translation liberty, as I mention at the start. (Normally I would attempt to be more upstanding and avoid this kind of liberty, but as soon as I saw it was a letter to an Eva-01 train I decided I was going to have fun. :devil: Between the Eva-01 motif and the conven...

Well given his hatred of otaku in the past, I just assumed he hadn't taken that dive. Color me mildly surprised. Criticism of others is often strongest when it's something personal like this. Anno went through a period where he recognized the shortcomings of the otaku identity and "lifestyle&q...

Turning into? He's always been one. :tongue: (Check out the manga and/or anime version of Insufficient Direction if you can -- Moyoco lays her husband's nerdy proclivities bare in the cutest way imaginable.)

Re: Eva 01 themed shinkansen train

This tweet pertains to the end of the Eva Bullet Train. Here's a transcription and a translation. I don't guarantee it's 100%, but it should be mostly correct. I took the liberty of making the train a lady on account of the letter being addressed to the train as if it were a person. (As far as I ca...

Re: Shamshel's Gender

Adam is referred to as a human in episode 8. Lilith is called a human in episode 26'. The Angels and Evas are explicitly called "human" as well on more than one occasion. The "what's a human?" topic has come up several times before, so if it's something that interests you, the se...

Re: Shamshel's Gender

That first sentence seems paradoxical in nature. An engineered species is by definition its own, separate species. Whether they were designed to reproduce hermaphroditicly, which is the most likely case (snip) It's not paradoxical. I was quite specific: they exist outside that paradigm because they...

Re: Shamshel's Gender

Kaworu refers to both as being "mothers", but that's a classical way of defining just about anything symbolically as being the source of a given progeny. The Earth can hardly be said to have a biological sex, yet it is referred to as Mother Earth. The same can be said about Mother Nature....

Re: Lilith and the MP Evas' "Fusion"

That does make sense, though now I'm just confused as to how that was intended to play into their interaction with Unit-01. You mean, how does Eva-01 not easily overwhelm them? Yui seems to want Instrumentality to happen, so perhaps to an extent she is subjugating herself. Did SEELE somehow expect ...

Re: Lilith and the MP Evas' "Fusion"

Yeah, the MP Evas generate ATFs, therefore have souls. ---- I could never figure out a real in-universe justification for this happening either. The "real" answer is probably a boring Doylist one -- it happens because (presumably) Anno liked the visual. Repulsive effigies of Rei require no...
