So bousou isn't amok ? And I'd go with the Tokita quote. Oh, be quiet, you. IS there actually a counterpart-word for "phallus"? "Phallus" is a Greek loan-word adopted into Latin, but neither the Romans nor the Greeks had quite the same explicit dualism in their cosmogony ...

The essay piece is fine, and records the case well, with no obvious omissions. And what is "gaff"? I speak you language not. Slightly archaic UK slang - "Blowing the gaff" is to reveal a plot or secret. Well, poo to you. http://www.evageeks.org/ANF-Archive/images/-tongue.gif You&...

I think there are people who get it, and people who don't (& won't)*. The entry-plug as womb symbolism is so "in yer face" - once you get shown in ep#16 that Yui is the guiding intelligence of EVA-01, the rest should all fall into place, if it hasn't already. Niceti...

Note however, the resemblance of the background images in EoE once Shinji rejects Complementation (i.e. the blue skies and fluffy white clouds) indicating, in both EoTV and EoE, the restoration of the "real world"... The use of blue skies and white cloud - especially that much re-...

He does not reject it in the TV series. The TV and movie endings are different. In so far as there are separate persons at the end of 26 - Shinji plus the cast who are congratulating him in their own way - the Complementation into one single human consciousness must have ended, by definition. That ...

There's a form of therapy for people who get depressed over anime. It starts with a "F" and ends with a "N", and there's "NF" in the middle. You're right there http://evageeks.org/ANF-Archive/images/-wink.gif But not to be knocked - it works. For me, though...

"URI"? I've only heard of URLs... Uniform Resource Identifier ( RFC 2396 ); an extension of the original URL (Locator - RFC 1738 ). The gist of the difference is that in a URL, the format is "protocol+server+where to look on the server", but a URI is "pr...

"Materialized"? Was she beamed there by Starfleet technology or something? Time-reverse tangification, perhaps. So who did Rei 'deliver' in episode #01, when we had the corresponding sighting? Or whom did she harvest? Isn't this sort of denying the element of free will on Asuk...

Also, Mr. Tines, I've probably asked this before, but is there any evidence in "I Need You" to suggest the hypothetized effects of GNR's falling body parts? Well, we don't get to see much of post-3I Earth, and presuming that the bit we do see is in the Hakone area, well that h...

Does anyone else think Shinji kicked the grave marker down? I don't see anyone else around who could have (unless Rei was feeling vindictive about not being able to properly re-embody). And I like your explanation of why he might. I guess the point is, real-life physics don't apply ...

As I like reiterating, if one is to identify the two endings, "I Need You" clearly comes after "Congratulations". More response later in the appropriate thread . but I see nothing else I would consider a grave marker. Remember the markers at the cemetary where Shinji went in ep#...

The rust is plainly there to indicate the passage of quite a bit of time. What takes time is the almost insoluble dark iron oxide to wash from the nail and be deposited on the cross (stone? plastic? ivory?) ; as opposed to the almost overnight orange oxides that even a dewfall might provoke...

You know, I've never once seen a post-3I dojin or fanfic that explores the idea (which to me is a perfectly natural assumption) that the other characters will come back sooner or later; it's invariably just Shinji and Asuka doing the "Adam and Eve" deal... http://www.evage...
