All those early pet-monster anime: Pokemon Monster Rancher Digimon Medabots (come on, that show was funny !) Every one of these shows I eventually lost interest in seeing the latest seasons/episodes of, but I still hold fond memories of the parts I watched back when I was following 'em r...

Eh...I like Yu-Gi-Oh!, but I only go as far as anything based on the original manga.

I get why they're doing this, but I don't want to see it.

I know I'm going to go, because somehow I feel like I have to see it because I'm a Transformers fan, even if I know I probably will be pretty bored with it.

The movie is SUCKING ME IN. I don't know what it is.

I write fanfic, but not Evangelion fanfic. I don't read Evangelion fanfic, either. I tend to write fics for series where I could sneak something in or there's something I feel needs exploring or a character that needs some focus, but Evangelion feels pretty much airtight in that regard. Seco...

TMIB: Yeah, intellectually I agree with you: I feel a little guilty about the flood of internal stereotypes about Dumb Faceless Big Hollywood that pop up every time the notion of a non-Japanese, live-action, anime remake is brought up. But even if I feel a little guilty, that's still my knee-jer...

Yojimbo: I like to dig deep, I like to think, but not every incident of ambiguity provokes that. I was operating on the usual perception that SF as a separated genre started with Shelly's "Frankenstein", even though that is debatable. While that makes it venerable in some ways, that so...

To an extent, I agree with you, Yojimbo: I'm really only interested in the emotional and character-driven aspects to the series, which is why I don't participate in many debates on these forums. (That and I'm lazy) However, sometimes the lack of details on the series' mechani...

To an extent, I'm playing Devil's Advocate: I believe that any critic worth their words would NOT consider a work automatically excluded from a canon of capital "A" Art because it's animated/science fiction/heavily merchandised. But if you're searching for reasons why Evang...

Well, Evangelion does transcend cultural boundaries to a degree, or we wouldn't be here talking about it. But what I was trying to say was that each culture has a "canon" of its Great Works, and while these canons are very similar, there are also many culturally-specific factors that l...

Hmmm...interesting. A question might be, though, are you speaking about Evangelion-as-art in relation to the "western" canon, or to a worldwide canon? Because either would make the difference: while a lot of things (including this board) prove that stories can contain many nigh-uni...

Yeah, exactly. I just didn't want to sound ignorant, but that's the gist of it: there seems to be very little kaiju for your buck, which I can understand to an extent, but I don't have to like it. But I do plan to see the original Gojira film subtitled one of these days, because I've...

Yeah, this thread is getting TL:DR. My fault entirely, for opening the worm-can. :) It's easy to be down on translation as an artistic concept, but I won't deny that it's no reason for us to keep working with what we have. In an ideal world, it's the closest that English-speaking...

Well...Shinji and Asuka's canonical characterizations *are* the foundation that we work from. Otherwise it's just fannish speculation. I'd argue that Shinji and Asuka wouldn't exactly reman *static*, just that they wouldn't shed enough of their teenage-year issues to be a healthy...
