Re: A question about Rei's physical appearance

Now, Rei was created to look significantly different from other characters to make her stand out easily and to highlight her odd psyche. However, i don't remember it being mentioned where the particular choices for her looks came from. I only remember one character with similar or matching physical...

Xenogears

As a new viewer of 3.33 (rewatched it last night after seeing it for the first time around a month or so ago) I found it very interesting to see two segments that reminded me a lot of the late 90's video game Xenogears. Xenogears was often compared to Eva as it is a mecha anime style video game wher...

Re: Do people still hate Evangelion 3.33?

4 years after its release I finally saw this for the first time. I didn't like it at all early in the movie, it was just a confusing mess to me. But once I was around 20 or so minutes in I enjoyed it the rest of the way, especially once Shinji returned to Nerv. What I enjoyed the most was probably t...

Re: Xenogears

Longtime bump, but first time I've visited this forum since these posts were made :P Glad to hear you finally were able to complete the game, Reichu. For those interested in the franchise, Xenoblade Chronicles X has finally been released in the US within the last week or so. Unconnected storywise wi...

Just finished up The Shining within the last week or so. Read The Dead Zone earlier this year as well. The only other King novels I've read are The Stand and The Green Mile, which I read as a kid 15-20 years ago. Plan on reading some more later this year after I read some books by other authors.

G Gundam got mediocre ratings during its initial run, but overall it's one of the top shows in the franchise. I think Xard's addressed this on a number of occasions. As for Relena, she's a trite caricature, just like every other character in Wing. In any poll with decent sampling I'...

May have been posted earlier (didn't want to go through all 36 pages!) but episode 20 of Eureka Seven has a pretty blatant homage to the sequence in End of Eva when the Eva series faces peel back.

Also, how the movie was shown outside of Japan at the time would have been limited. Fansubs would not have been too common at the time (if I remember right, digital fansubs only came to prominance around the time EoE was released in North America, otherwise the only way was with VHS fansubs)...

^I disagree with characters being useless, I think there is very few characters that can be classified that in the game. There are a few characters that are forgotten, yes (Jessie, Gaspar, Rico's father for example), but those characters are usually more incidental than significant, and ...

I've never been fond of beer and will only drink it when social situations dictate it. It doesn't taste good at all, regardless of the brand, and pretty much every other alcoholic drink is better tasting. In the overall scheme of things I'm not much of a drinker though, maybe a couple of...

I looked over my records and did a partial translation of it many years ago, around the time I was working on episodes 3 and 4 which eventually did get out on the FGC. I'll probably redo what I had done thus far since its been so many years.

Welcome back! Do you plan to watch Rebuild 3 at some point? Of course! I'm still thinking about whether to wait until it comes out in the US on Blu ray though. Any anticipated time for that? I can wait another month or two without a problem. Probably couldn't wait if its a year and I'd ...

*gasp* at discovering my years old comments have been edited. I'm surprised I would consider whether that was an Eva homage or not, that isn't like me at all. :lol:

Xenogears, start to finish, never had any of the same impact on me as Evangelion, or even other games I would fall far short of calling "the Evangelion of video games". I beat it only a few years ago and yet I struggle even to remember several characters' names. I don't find it as...

Breaking Bad is an excellent show and I would agree with those who consider it the best show on television. I will miss it greatly once it is off the air. But I am happy they are ending it on their own terms. Vince Gilligan really developed in the industry through The X-Files, and that show is the p...

Xenoblade is completely unrelated. As mentioned previously, it was originally to be called Monado, which is the name of the main sword in the game and a major plot point. Due to Tetsuya Takahashi being directed they decided to rename it to Xenoblade as a homage to his prior work. Xenosaga is essenti...
