Re: Gendo's silent line: new theory

4. He addressed Ritsuko as Akagi Ritsuko-kun. -kun is for children. Adding a -kun to an adult's name is a way of mocking that person for being naive. Seriously, this is a "watch more anime (or at least, consume more Japanese media)" mistake. Yes, the honorific is used almost by default to...

Re: Asuka isn't Justified

I actually wonder why Shinji would be interested in Asuka in the first place. A good-looking and somewhat exotic girl around the house? Definite side-dish material; but with that abrasive personality, really no more. Shinji and Rei aren't any better. Episode 6 makes a better case for Shinji having ...

Re: Asuka isn't Justified

Wasn't Asuka's pseudo/broken infatuation with Shinji established all the way in, like, Episode 9, and further developed in Episode 15? There was even a whole running theme of kissing and everything. (Heck, even Episode 10 explores this, and it's considered the least useful Eva episode ever.) I mean...

What does "activating" mean exactly? It means completing the sign-up process, and then logging in; something you did 8 years ago. If you look at the member list for the recently joined , it's the accounts marked with "(Inactive)" against the user name, i.e. have not yet shown an...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

It was bad. Searching through the archives, the keywords are "boring", "slow" and "sterile". Turning to the merely bland, I dropped Granbelm after episode 5, as a failure by the usual criterion -- the beam-spam was pretty enough, but for all that it was full of sound a...

They say "overlap"; and that term is used in Anno's favourite source of inspiration, Ultraman, to mean "can do the fusion dance". This will be the way we get that 08+02 hybrid from the next time preview.

Re: Asuka isn't Justified

End of Eva needed it. And I think the show and the film are better for it. Dropping one line from the script is all that it would take, the one that made me say to myself "Where the hell did that come from? Do they think that being on the silver screen necessitates injecting a romance angle?&q...

Re: Asuka isn't Justified

Paragraphs are your friend. As someone for whom Asuka was the character who most reminded me of my younger self, and so to whom I was most sympathetic , I didn't get the AsuShin shipping either, until I found out that a good 50% of the new material added in the extended episodes 21'-24' was trying t...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

I wish it wasn't so ecchi sometimes though so I could share it with more people! As I remarked above , the thing I noticed about the TV adaptation was how much it had been toned down from the manga, fanservice-wise. Fun fact -- the Russian girl who appears in this week's episode is named as a refer...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

Summer season is a least being better than Spring. I dropped Sounan desu-ka after the first episode, as it just didn't engage; and while I haven't dropped Granbelm after 3 episodes, it's on the borderline, for only half-heartedly delivering either magical mech beam-spam or engaging characters. At th...

As an avid reader of science fiction over the last 55 years, my experience is that it is a somewhat recherché one, and when it does happen, it's what the story is about, its "one miracle", not an after-market Easter-egg.

A meta comment here: Where in the world, where in popular culture, did this time-loop meme arise from?
