Re: Gendo's silent line: new theory

Episode 21 tells us exactly what Gendo thinks about Naoko. It's hardly "secret revelation" material, and it certainly doesn't require that one impose a misogynistic slur upon a somber key moment in two characters' relationship. I think you also take it far too much for granted that the Mag...

Re: Why do people (or maybe you personally) dislike episodes 25 & 26 (the TV Episodes) so much?

They're not really redundant. (Episode 25 includes character material that exists nowhere else and without which those characters can't be understood, for instance.) But because the one ending already existed, there's a lot of stuff that EoE didn't have to do again, instead enabling it to focus on n...

Re: Your favourite phallus

Shamefully enough, I too fell for the whole "Shamshel is a penis" meme, despite my own tendency to dwell upon the wonders and absurdities of anatomy, and despite knowing that Shamshel's own designer (Yoshitoh Asari) depicted Shammy as female in a silly short comic from a doujinshi antholog...

Re: Why do people (or maybe you personally) dislike episodes 25 & 26 (the TV Episodes) so much?

I mostly "dislike" EoTV in the context of people claiming that it's the only ending that's needed and EoE is shit. Taken completely on their own merits, I do indeed think the TV episodes are pretty hot garbage; as part of a greater whole, they're fine, even interesting. They're a fundament...

Re: FML general thread [8]

Finally got a job, and I like the work itself, but they've loaded way too many hours onto me and I simply can't adapt / recover quickly enough. Graveyard shift, on my feet for most of 9 hours, physically demanding (not compared to construction work, maybe, but compared to NEETdom, oh yeah). The bigg...

Re: Your favourite phallus

The idea was apparently to combine an arthropod body plan with the internal female genitalia. One does not execute that idea better by changing both parts of it (arthropod to mollusk and internal to external). Though I'll note that the movie version of Shamshel (the 5th Angel) had the design fine-tu...

I would consider myself more of an "Eva cleric" or "Eva priestess" than an "Eva fan". Praise be to our lady and goddess the great Yui-sama, may she see fit to one day bless this miserable wretch with a beautiful immortal body like her own, amen.

Re: Your favourite phallus

The "Shamshel is a dick" thing was always a misreading of the design. Shamshel is actually a disembodied VAGINA (abdominal segment) with a uterus (thoracic segment) and oviducts (arms & whips) on top. The episode is about Shinji struggling against female authority, after all... (And ye...

This is getting a bit beyond the scope of this particular thread, but this thread (start at the beginning, it has a table of contents) at least addresses the whole "what is the key?" thing. It's generally assumed at this point that Gendo will use the Key on himself before he enters Eva-13;...

Re: Stuff that you would like to see in Evangelion 3.0+1.0

Some variation on (b) is far more likely. Fuyutsuki has told us that Gendo will go as far as sacrificing his soul to bring his wish to fruition. We're not told what this wish is, but it's been forecast that he will sacrifice himself to make Eva-13 a counterpart to Eva-01. The likely outcome here is ...

Yeah, it's an entirely fanciful guess. All in good fun, though.

That's just Lav. It's when he's NOT saying that kind of stuff that we need to be worried. Well, against my better judgment I've let myself come up with some very elaborate ideas about the next movie over the past couple of months. I wouldn't mind seeing at least some of these come true.
