Re: Best boy

You guys already know my answer by now, if there's any doubt: Shinji Ikari. This is a kid since day one has been deliberately been manipulated to failure and screwed by nearly every facet of his life to the point of making it a living hell, where he pretty much had the one chance in his entire like...

Re: Last Movie You Watched

I watched Logan twice and subsequently wept leaving the theater, in the car home and once I got home (the first viewing).
Also found Pootie Tang and Dog Soldiers on DVD/BD, both classics.

Re: Whitewashing And Diversity In Hollywood?

I was worried the live action GitS would drain some of the depth from the original and SAC, and here we are, unfortunately not proven wrong. Sigh.

Hopefully they take note with this AKIRA remake they continuously try and get off the ground, though history dictates it'll suffer the same fate as GitS.

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

Been into Attack on Titan, just caught the second season premiere. Got through the first half of Sword Art Online until the second half pissed me off enough, story-wise, to lost interest. In the middle of the 2nd season of Tokyo Ghoul. Re-watching Gundam Wing (I just discovered Crunchy Roll :tongue:...

Re: Is Rei Q a disposable battery?

I thought the power outage was a pretext for Fuyutsuki and Shinji to have a private conversation before the former went into an in-depth analysis of Rei and Yui's connection.

Re: 3.33 English dub released, your thoughts after watching?

The NTE dubs are adequate, I've enjoyed seeing Spike Spencer and Tiffany Grant back in their roles. But in terms of Q, I've found the sub superior than normal, especially during the launch of Wunder. The dub cast in that scene just seems so bored, whereas in the sub the voice acting gives me chills....

Q Poster

This appeared to be the right place to post this so I wanted to see if any of you fine people would know of a place on the interwebs from which I may purchase an affordable, large poster for Q, specifically the Shinji and Kaworu one?

Thanks!

Re: Is Shinji evil?

A lifetime of exposure has convinced me that philosophy is a study that bears no useful relationship to the real world. So I doubt I can contribute to the turn this discussion is taking. I can agree with that since at the end of the day we're all ultimately subject to our own personal philosophies,...

Re: Is Shinji evil?

Unsure if it's been discussed but in reading these last few responses, has Shinji's actions ever been viewed through Nietzsche lens, specifically the Will to power. Much of Shinji's actions seem to back up and rail against that concept, additionally Rebuild's sequel possibility in the form of eterna...

Re: Possibly bad news for Shin?

Loved your responses, especially for 2.22 and Q. Hit a lot of my favorite points about those. The narrative curveball that was Q was a gamble, a brave gamble that paid off.

Re: Is Shinji evil?

I think this can be summed up to him being a fucked up teenager thrust into an extraordinary situation. Tell me if you'd be aight fighting in a giant robot against a giant monster with no prior training after an emotional gut punch from your already fractured paternal relationship. My guess is nah.

Re: Mad Max: Fury Road...A Gob Hobblin's Review

What separates Fury Road from TFA is this, with the latter we'd seen it before, it'd just been awhile and also done so well (IMO). With the former, it was a unique experience and unlike anything ever put to screen (again, IMO).

Re: Pilot ages

Toji's shirt in Neo-Nerv HQ in Q suggests that maybe he was recruited later on during the timeskip, and may very possibly be dead by the time of the film's events, though neither of those points can be proven conclusively yet. I've been trying to place a finger on that plot tidbit and you've given ...

Re: Pilot ages

Perhaps there's a qualification, a new form, that we have yet to be introduced to.

2.22 made it clear that Shinji's classmates were simply regular teenagers, i.e. Tohji not being selected.

I'm sure I'm echoing sentiments already stated, but I've seen Shinji as a creature of impulse driven to protect or act in favor of those who show him love (Rei, Kaworu, Misato) with little (if any) rationale applied to his actions. As stated above, he doesn't consider consequences, nor is he likely ...

Re: Pilot ages

I'd like to see the results of that theory put into practice in Final, perhaps on a headstrong Gendo whose plans don't come exactly to fruition. Granted I feel a rational Gendo wouldn't make such a mistake, but it'd be a decently fitting end considering his manipulations.

I agree that it wasn't necessary, but I don't think it was detrimental either. When he was silent, his decision seemed more resolute and aware. However, with the added line, it seems more like an emotional slip that caused him to save Luke. I think I like the latter interpretation better, because i...

Re: Possibly bad news for Shin?

The biggest issue I had with 2.22 was the character building between the angel attacks that kind of wandered a bit. Fan-servicy as it was, I think 1.11 and 2.22 spent to much time in the world that we're familiar with from NGE and that's a major reason why I loved Q. It jettisoned us into a new worl...
