Views: 72356

What's this about Anno making a bid for his old sensei's mantle? They're talking about Hayao Miyazaki, whose movies (Nausica, Princess Mononoke, etc) tend to have strong ecological,"tree-hugging", themes. Anno worked for Miyazaki on Nausica way back before Gainax even ...

It depends. In Japanese, no. In English, yes. At lest that is what I have heard. I have never watched EoE in English. Lucky you! What AWL did to the script is simply atrocious, and some of the new VAs are really bad; Hyuga and Fuyutski especially :complain: Originally posted on: 19-Jan-2004, 23:53 ...

While we're on the subject of Rei and menstruation, I wonder if anyone else has picked up on this... http://www.evageeks.org/ANF-Archive/images/PJMK0AHC114Q53GTDSTI6UNRT-LCL_04.jpg Reichu has used this scene before to emphasize the point of just what LCL is, and where , in particular, it comes f...

One thing I noticed right away is that the drip usually seperates a "different" reality from the real world... Indeed. Whatever the water drop 'means', it's function as part of the "visual vocabulary" of NGE usually is to serve as a sort of visual punctuation, repres...

Yeah, I'm not saying that it's never true. Just that my reaction is always to take it with a pinch of salt. I don't really know anything about the EVA2 game, I assumed that those games would require a far greater level of knowledge of written Japanese than I can lay claim to. Any good? ...

I guess that's about how I see it as well. The worst examples of this type of material are some of the DVD extras on the Manga releases (D&R and EoR) which completely contradicts the material in the show itself, and feeds some of the worst misconceptions. From examples like that, I&...

The Red Cross Book states EoE is an alternative ending. How so? (RCB: Production Notes) Episode 25' "Air" is based on the original episode 25 script which was completed during production of the TV series. Due to production time limits and other problems, this script was not us...

OTOH, what with all the dead (or semi-dead) people standing around, and the small coral-reef/globe location, we sure aren't in Kansas, either. Note however, the resemblance of the background images in EoE once Shinji rejects Complementation (i.e. the blue skies and fluffy white clou...

He does not reject it in the TV series. The TV and movie endings are different. G.O. I tend to agree with this guy . Money quote: I'm very curious to know why others believe he accepted complementation in the tv ending. I've watched 25 and 26 many times now and see no evidence for it. I can...

I thought it was more like, "The real fun has just begun." There was a old thread on Japan.anime.evangelion about that very notion (alas, I haven't been able to dig it up; it been almost two years since I read it): the poster quoted a statement by someone connected with GAINAX...

The live action 'Cutie Honey" was kinda lame, but the animated Re. Cutie Honey rules!

Anything that's lying around, I suppose. Unless you believe that the Human Instrumentality Project somehow affected things other than humans (which seems terribly dubious to me), there ought to be plenty of Japanese micro-fauna scuttling about. I don't have very high hopes for the a...
