Re: Coming back after instrumentality

There is some evidence Kaworu wasn't intended to be Adam's equivalent until very late in the production process. As for Kaworu...

Re: Coming back after instrumentality

Coming back would require the person to be a part of instrumentality, but people who died prior to instrumentality starting were still part of it. But I have never accepted this! How many more times do I have to tell you - Kaji's GONE My headcanon is "Everyone who died at, or after, Second Imp...

Re: [Poll] What episodes of Neon Genesis Evangelion do you like and dislike?

I for one find it weird that people don't like episodes without Evas smacking down on angels, unless the revolve around Shinji...but episode 3 has both though? Color me shocked.

Re: Why did Asuka tell Shinji she didn't receive his help?

It's interesting to think we might finally see a SANE END to Shinji and Asuka's relationship. It really is thrown in the blender in the Bitter End Arc. Unless you think dysfunctionality is so at the core of their beings that IS the natural ending.

Re: Hollywood's "Ghost in the Shell"

She also says she's 'underwhelmed' by the score. She wonders why they couldn't have used the original scores by Kenji Kawai, because a lot of what made the original GITS great was the memorable score and the use of the Japanese choir and instruments. That doesn't strike me as a reasonable expectati...

Re: Who is the EVA character you feel most sorry for?

Ritsuko for me, most definitely. Yeah. It's why 'Thanatos' is my favourite piece of the in-show soundtrack. There's also the idea that she completely knew what happened to her mother, tried to shut down as a person and turn into a cold calculating professional and then watched herself fall for the ...

Re: Who is the EVA character you feel most sorry for?

Not everyone is as mean as Asuka. Not everyone in Erin Brokovich got cancer from the water either. And honestly, how mean is she really? You only have to compare her to Shikinami who's worse. She decks Shinji on sight, plays videogames all the time (a sign of mental instability in Soryu) and doesn't...

Better Japanese teenagers than me have tried. The problem is you don't run out of angels before you run out of words for "quivering monstrosity".

Re: [Poll] What episodes of Neon Genesis Evangelion do you like and dislike?

That would be like saying that you have to include Star Trek: The Motion Picture in a poll of favorite Star Trek episodes because it started its lifespan as a script for an episode. OTOH you could say episodes 25 and 26 aren't 'episodic' in any meaningful way. They're just one continuous thing. Tha...

'stereotypical features' can be a funny thing. In Japanese physical iconography, you need a prominent nose ridge to 'look white'

It's the first episode that screams "Man's greatest enemy is man himself". But hey, that's why I like Matarael and the blackout even though he's completely gimped. He is performing his role. Good ol' weeping illuminati eyes. If technological conspiracy at the heart of civilization is you t...

Indeed. They secretly control big stuff. Seele aren't Aum Shinrikyo. They're the illumaniti.

So there you go. Even if the Y-Rod isn't at 'Madame Secretary' levels you can't imagine she wouldn't be recognised by James Carville. ('the economy, stupid', that guy)

Re: [LEAM] Would an Evangelion live-action movie have ever worked if it had been done right?

It is not well-regarded, even by Lynch himself and your statement is somewhat of an oxymoron. To this day, he still bristles whenever the subject of Dune comes up and prefers not to talk about it. Yes, it has a cult following, but by and large most people actively dislike that film. But that is ind...
