Re: If Mari is british...

In the Japanese version, Mari speaks English to keep Shinji from understanding her phone call, so the idea is that, in an English language dub, she could use rhyming slang to achieve the same thing.

Re: C.T.1290 versus Asuka. Examining the good and bad.

Asking questions for other people to answer does not seem to be giving you what you're looking for, and you know what they say about doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. So, at great risk of overstepping, I'd like to suggest a couple of things, from one autistic person...

Re: If Mari is british...

My enthusiasm for the idea is quite genuine. I would love to hear a fandub, performed by a talented young lass fluent in Cockney, of the scene in question. :nyao: Really is a shame the dub dropped the ball on this.

Re: How Evangelion Gets Away With Being Terrible

Shikinami has the visual motif of the doll that's been stitched back together, supplemented by the Bardiel infection being represented by staples... But of course this has no bearing whatsoever on Shikinami's past, since she doesn't have one. At best, it's foreshadowing for how she'll need to stitch...

Re: If Mari is british...

The fact that she doesn't use Cockney Rhyming Slang to keep Shinji from understanding what she's saying is one of the great missed opportunities of the 21st Century.

Re: "der Verlust" - Kyoko's Motivations

I would discourage putting so much of your post content inside giant images. If it's text, can it not be text in the post itself? That way, if a host like imgur goes down, much less information is lost. "Talk about unlucky, the proponent becoming the test subject herself." The wording mean...

Attendee A suggests that mental breakdown due to the contact experiment was why Kyoko killed herself, then corrects himself and implies that there was more to it than just that. Next scene is Langley and Kyoko's doctor (eventually Langley's new wife) talking in the room next to where Asuka is watchi...

Re: Anyone else feel dislike towards EoE nowadays?

- The dream scene is one example of EoE being intentionally obtuse and metaphysical. The sandbox sequence is another. The climactic voiceovers by Rei, Kaworu, and Rei are another. - The depiction of Third Impact is an unapologetic many-layered clusterfuck. Spiritual and psychoanalytic imagery. Sci-f...

Re: Official "Hello/Goodbye" Thread!

There's so much cross pollination between Judaism and Christianity -- especially in terms of the shared texts (Old Testament) and overlapping mysticism and apocrypha -- that I find the term "Judeo-Christian" incredibly useful to refer to the areas of overlap. In my experience, most people ...

Re: If Shinji were to die in the final film.

I saw the dubbed version of 3.0, and she does sound a little more angry/frustrated than being worried about him. It's a complete misfire of voice direction, unfortunately. You should listen to the original performances at least once to help account for discrepancies like this. The script comment fo...

Is this based on Allison Keith-Shipp's reading of "Shinji...!" toward the end? If so, Misato doesn't even sound frustrated in the original line reading -- more worried.
