Re: Revolutionary Girl Utena

Got this sucker pre-ordered in its Special Edition. I hadn't been this excited since hearing the latest news bits about Shin Eva.

Re: Wait so how did Asuka die in EoE?

Edit: actually, I didn't even bring up the term berserk. That was you. :tongue: Ah, yes. That is true. I wonder what the dividing line for "Berserk" really is for Eva Units, then. Is there a canonical specification for Berzerk, or is it only recognized anytime a Bridge Bunny shots "B...

Re: Wait so how did Asuka die in EoE?

It depends on what you consider to be the visual cue of "Berserk." Usually it's indicated with an opened mouth and/or actual glowing eyes. (In Unit 02's case, 4 glowing eyes that appear to be separate from the ones indicated on the armor, as the armor has to open up in order to show them.)...

Re: Wait so how did Asuka die in EoE?

Either way, it's implied that the pilots only felt the pain. ("That's not your real arm.") Pilots reaching for painful body parts is mere instinct while the pilots convince themselves that the pain doesn't mean anything. Actual physical damage was never a known and/or disclosed part of the...

Re: Wait so how did Asuka die in EoE?

Wait, can the Bridge Bunnies alter Sync Ratio? We always see them measure it, and they have some control during the sync tests, but every time a pilot is on the battlefield any attempts on the part of the Bridge Bunnies to control the Sync Ratio of the pilot is only expressed in pleas to the pilot t...

Re: Wait so how did Asuka die in EoE?

The Sync Ratio was so great that what happened to Unit 02 also happened to Asuka. Unit 02 dies, so also Asuka dies. What's cruel and unusual about this whole thing is that way back in Episode 2 Maya tells Shinji to not worry about the pain in his arm because it "wasn't [his] real arm." The...

Re: Evangelion Pic Thread 10: The Society for the Appreciation Of The Premium Girl (and her friends)

In what way and is it a bad thing? Most of the art is Japanese however. I would hope the characters would have some sympathy for the poor kid. Oh, I don't think there's anything wrong with it. It's just an unusual trend to see in the fandom. It makes me wonder is Anno made a more sympathetic Shinji...

Re: Evangelion Pic Thread 10: The Society for the Appreciation Of The Premium Girl (and her friends)

It feels weird to me to see Shinji being wept upon by various Q iterations of Misato and Asuka. Does it feel weird to anyone else? Not weird in the sense that "It'll ever happen," but more like these fan works are a result of Eva fans projecting themselves upon Shinji (or otherwise feeling...

Re: How Evangelion Gets Away With Being Terrible

^ I cannot wait for this. The Dragon Dentist is supposedly coming out to Blu-ray soon. Remaking Eva is a solid plan for these future endeavors. I think it's important to realize that Anno's statements speak to Khara's existence as a whole, and not to Eva in particular. As far as start-up studios go,...

Re: How Evangelion Gets Away With Being Terrible

As one of the regular posters here points out, NGE was often guilty of telling us its point instead of showing, e.g. Shinji's conversations with his subconscious self on the traincar. EoE actually tells you the point it's trying to make through Yui's monologue at the end. The plot , on the other ha...

Re: How Evangelion Gets Away With Being Terrible

I don't think dissenters of NTE are expecting a series as long as NGE. Rather, they're expecting to complain about a series that's shorter than NGE. Many of them (Mr. Tines, for example) have dismissed NTE without having ever watched it simply because he knows it can never be the lightning-in-a-bott...

Re: (Merch) Authentic Cel?

I've bought from Asylum Anime before. The Asuka cell I bought back in May came from their booth at Animazement. I laid eyes on the cel pictured in their link you posted, and decided that $400 had to be my cutoff point that weekend. The ebay link looks legit as well, but that's just judging from the ...

Re: [Merch] Evangelion Merchandise 2, or, Why Do I Keep Buying Things!?

The Asuka cell was over $400. It wasn't cheap. The one a handful of frames later was $800 since it showed her whole face towards the viewer. This is my post prized material position.

Re: How Evangelion Gets Away With Being Terrible

No, when you take away that much backstory, some things get lost in translation, and you lose character motivations in hte process, and it affected the character negatively. Nothing got "lost in transition" because Soryu isn't being "translated" to Shikinami. The two are very di...

Re: C.T.1290 versus Asuka. Examining the good and bad.

So, a character doing something more unbelievable (piloting Eva) is more believable than a character doing something believable (going to college)?

Got it.

I mean, I get you point. I really do. I just can't justify it in the logic of the show itself.

@ErgoProxy I'm not saying that she doesn't take her pride to inappropriate places, but that she at least deserves to have it. Not sure what's wrong with that statement.
