Re: Nier: Automata

I also finished all 5 major endings, and I’m gonna have to do another play through just to let them all soak in. I love this game.

Re: Flashing text (and Gerry Anderson influences)

I remember watching UFO sometime ago and noticed a lot of the similarities in both shows' OPs. I'll have to watch it again more closely and soak in all of the connections. It's nice to see Anno's influences come from both animation and live-action medium.

Re: Evangelion 3.0+1.0: 2020

The only Eva film Funimation released without incident was 2.22. They’ve had to “fix” every other Eva release in some fashion. 1.01 has some embarrassing misspellings in its reading insert, the first press release of 1.11 had certain special features that Kara did not authorize them to have, and 3.3...

Re: Personal Status After Rebuild

I feel like most of my chat/discussion contributions will have dried up after the Final film runs its course in this forum. I haven't really posted a lot in the NGE specific boards in a while now, and I have a feeling that the same might happen to NTE once everything is discussed to a certain point....

Re: Favourite piece from the Eva OSTs?

This mostly unused part of the Thanatos track has been one of my favorites for a while now. When the track is listened to in its totally, I really like the emotional shift in the song.

Re: Controversial Anime Opinions

Visual Arts Key/P. A. Works totally sucks at making anime. Their only one gimmick is that “sad girls with big eyes” trope and it’s mostly implemented uncomfortably close to chauvinistic tendencies. (This one boi must save ALL of the hi skool gerlz!) If someone does like a show of theirs, it usually ...

Re: First look at Unit 08 and Mari from the theatrical teaser for 3.0+1.0

For all intents and purposes, Wille IS the Jet Alone of the Rebuilds in that it’s the only rival organization who has the crew and gusto to rival Nerv. The only real difference is that Misato leads Wille instead of what's his face from Ep 7, and she (presumably) has scores to settle.

Re: Evangelion 3.0+1.0: 2020

^ Agreed. Also, Netflix’s “deeper pockets” usually go to their own original productions and things like that. They’re not gonna spend their top dollar on other people’s content; they’re going to spend it on themselves. Funimation doesn’t do very big original content (and their internet originals bar...

Re: What directors would you like seeing tackle Evangelion in the future?

I’m right there with anyone calling for more abstract or surreal directors for tackling Evangelion, but my top pick for the next big Eva director would actually be Hayao Miyazaki. (Because we all know he’ll never really retire, right?) I mean, I know it would be like asking Akira Kurosawa to direct ...

Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media

IIRC, most Japanese don't consider themselves religious in any real sense, and all of the Shinto holidays and rituals are more or less cultural or traditional. Also, it's weird how well atheism can rest within a religion that tells you to more or less not care about the gods. Buddism's agnostic/apat...

Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media

^ Thats a uniquely pessimistic stance on the series. Usually detractors opine either “It’s different, I hate it,” or are “It’s depressing, I hate it.” This is the first time since the release of 1.11 that I’m hearing “It’s the same, I’ll be disappointed.” I very much disagree with your assessment, a...

Re: Evangelion Final: 2020

^ One of Shin Eva’s distributors is Toho. Toho’s ALWAYS had scary lawyers. They are the only thing from Toho more menacing than Godzilla. They will sue anything that looks at their property/licensing funny.
