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.

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

@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. The rest of your post seems to be dissing what are objectively impressive accomplishments for a middle-schooler, which is.... okay...

Re: How Evangelion Gets Away With Being Terrible

You can dislike it if you want (I have some problems with the movie and I agree that the supporting cast was much more interesting in the original series) but Anno & Co. did not abandon the original "message" of Evangelion and it's simply incorrect to say they did. I'm actually a litt...

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

Contrary to what seems to be the popular opinion amongst Asuka, um... challengers, I actually think that Asuka deserves to feel the immense pride that she does for the things she's accomplished. Asuka graduated college before the age of 13. (Basically imagine Chiyo Chan from Azumanga Daioh in colleg...

Re: Hayao Miyazaki updates enemies list

I don't think AIs have to be as creative as humans in order to create mainstream blockbuster films. (This says more about the lack creativity behind blockbusters than it does anything else.)

Re: How Evangelion Gets Away With Being Terrible

Well, he is saying that, the video says that the Rebuild movies are simply worse than the original Evangelion TV show. And that the video says things that are not true, to support that claim. Instead, the video should have said that he did not like the movies as much as the TV show, without saying ...

Yeah, I saw DD's videos, and they're only slightly better than this. His claims still lack the proper context of both the series, the movies, and the other titles he compares them to. He'll claim that it wasn't the multiple characters and short duration that made NTE "fail" in character de...

Re: Hayao Miyazaki updates enemies list

The types of movies that draw directors like Miyazaki to the craft will probably be safe from AI's grasp. It's not because I think Miyazaki's artistry is too complex for computers to replicate (given enough time, anything's possible), rather its because the studios who could afford such technology w...

Re: Hayao Miyazaki updates enemies list

I agree with him 100%, and I say that as someone who's never seen one of his films. You can make the argument that our creativity and imagination, when it comes to art, is what makes Humanity truly special on this planet. If we make a computer to imagine things for us, what are we saying about ours...
