Re: The New Kids Are Weird

I had seen NGE a good decade before I took the deep dive that brought me here, but it was in that deep dive, amid being alone, in the closet and a burgeoning bipolar disorder, that Eva offered some solace. It's far from fixed me, at most offered some aid and introspection, both things I'm grateful f...

Re: Netflix English Dub Discussion

The splooshes were the most egregious, random and uncalled for change AWL made to EoE. "Hit em again" is pretty bad too, and the script error with Misato's exposition is a huge canonical oversight. On the whole, the Manga dub of EoE is preferable to me, but those things, minor they may see...

Re: Netflix English Dub Discussion

No translation of EoE is going to make Shinji look good. The little bastard had his mommy shepherd him across the chasm of ego death and threw a tantrum because Asuka needed a minute to get her bearings after reconstituting herself through sheer willpower. He’s not the hero, she is. That’s the bril...

Re: Netflix Release General Discussion

That's a bit of an extreme take on part of the accusers lol

But Evangelion becoming available every decade or so does subject it to the zeitgeist, thereby inviting new interpretations (separate from what is being leveled at Khara's translator). Keeps things interesting.

Re: Netflix Release General Discussion

Okay, I know I'll regret this, but I want to be honest for a moment and say it aloud that I'm having a good laugh now. First you soak your culture in sex of all variants and configurations because it's said to be progressive and whatnot, and then you have astronomical troubles with proper decryptio...

Re: Netflix Release General Discussion

This is going to sound like a dig but I'm being serious, does a boy spilling his heart to another boy then looking him dead in the eye and saying I like you not blunt enough for a western audience? Have you never had someone tell you they liked you before? Do they drop the L bomb immediately? I fee...

Re: Netflix English Dub Discussion

The elevator scene was awful in the new dub. Lacked so much heft and energy that even the Manga dub had. Totally agree here.

Oh of course. That wasn't meant tone greater than or less than I was just listing them with "arrows" in the progression of when they came out. Sorry that wasn't clear. I feel like the Platinum version is the more superior one seeing as the Perfect Collection was literally just a DVD trans...

I've never watched Space Runaway Ideon in full, and I'm getting the BD today. I'm very excited for this.

The fact this'll be some (many) people's first exposure to ETV/EoE and that they'll likely watch it in English is what makes this a small scale tragedy.

Re: Netflix Release General Discussion

I think it's just because we've had the DVD dub longer and some (me) have an attachment to it. It was the form that the series was introduced to me.

Why ADV Perfect or Platinum? I've tended to see Platinum raised up as the better of the home releases.

Re: Netflix English Dub Discussion

Dub seems ok so far, I like Asuka and Rei's voices. I wouldn't say I like them as much as the old but they do seem a bit more real to me. On the other hand the Translation is awkward and everything seems a bit too subdued. It's not awful per se, but given the hype, the opportunity and the investmen...

Re: Netflix Release General Discussion

The biggest giveaway that it's intended to be gay, them both being men, nude and open in ways friends are not all aside, and I'm being cheeky here, is that the scene takes place in a fucking bath house.

Re: Netflix English Dub Discussion

For the most part, I remember the Manga EoE dub for its cartoonish and hammy moments, of which there were, regrettably, a bit too many. It has its moments, and the only objective version is the Japanese original, my initial exposure was to the Manga dub, and it has a weird special place in my love ...

I think that would be a neat choice, something we haven't had in a while. Now that you mention, that kind of seems where they intended to take it with 3.0's ending.

He was especially taken by the improvement on EoE, noting that this dub let him actually follow what was going on. Interesting. Aside from that one mistranslation about Adam/Lilith, the splooshes and "hit 'em again," I honestly love the Manga EoE dub. The absence of "I'm so fucked up...

Considering how 3.0 went down, I think all bets are off, but my guess would be a short one, if at all. My comment was more a joke at 3.0 hijinks.
