Yen to Dollars conversion in 1995-money?

we can't simply use a conversion website because the conversion rate was different in the mid-90's what was the conversion rate? for example, if they're charging "30 yen a piece" for pictures of Asuka when she first arrives...what does that mean in today's money? A complica...

in that case, yes, I will take this as a sign that "he's more used to being there" now

(if this is still the proper thread to discuss a dub in) I realize that MANY of the secondary characters will have new VA's...look what happened to the movies and Director's Cuts even. But I mean, Tiffany Grant and Spike Spencer (and probably Amanda Winn-Lee) publicly have sa...

Shinji and "I'm home" (Tadaima)

I notice that in episode 2, Shinji struggles to say "tadaima!" to Misato ("I'm home") on entering Misato's apartment Yet in episode 9, he just casually says "tadaima" before acknowledging that he's just doing it out of habit and (as he thinks)...

Asuka in episode 9

In the opening of episode 9 a boy says "since Asuka was raised over there but born here" is this boy simply wrong? Was Asuka physically born in Japan, or Germany? Oh even if she was born physically in Japan, she'd have moved to Germany when she was too young to remember anything. So it...

Re: Is Misato an introvert?

It just seems to me that Misato is an introvert who pretends to be an extrovert. Does anyone else think so, or am I just stating the obvious? those terms dont' apply exactly Misato has Borderline Personality Disorder, which is basically using a lot of flamboyance and being the "life of the...

rather than the cartoonish ones from the ADV dub. How are the voices in the ADV dub "cartoonish"? I'd say that most (if not all) of the characters were done rather well in the ADV dub. I'm damned sure that Funimation will make people beg ADV and MANGA to dub Rebuild (u...

Indeed: they use "pretty rainbow colors" for everything, from unrelated computer displays to slide projectors.

Stop using that as evidence of anything.

as its because Eva-02's soul is "shut away" (because Asuka is gone) then I think we can attribute it to another "fun with AT Fields" trick by Kaworu We're talking about the rainbow gradient that features in Rei's physical scan. Shin-seiki explained why this is...

Very, very relevant post. The adjacent-ish posts are probably relevant, too. I need to fix some of those broken images. \ I am.... openly surprised to the point of disappointment that anyone would consider "flashing lights in Rei's medical scan" to be anything approaching solid eviden...

your teacher was being an idiot.

The idea is that your molecules separate into a soup of basic amino acids and sugars, etc.

For example, your "DNA" would break down into just amino acids, lipids, etc.
The "building blocks of life"

She didn't understand the question.

Rei-Kaworu off-screen discussion in 24'?

Here's a thought: the ONE Rei-Kaworu scene ends with Rei saying to Kaworu: "....identify yourself" now here's something: did their conversation continue after this? the "camera" just cuts away to another scene. Is it supposed to be implied that they said more than that? *...
