Re: Current view of the Rebuild series and last movie expectations

The Angels are a mirror of the Hedgehog's Dilemma and one of the central themes of the movies which is the individual vs the collective. The Angels represent the monolithic individual on the one side. That's how they're introduced to us. Near-perfect beings blessed with the Fruit of Life which allow...

Re: Evangelion 3.0+1.0: 2020

Any thoughts on what the dates "2020, 21, etc." meant that were on Anno's last lamp drawing? 3.0+1.0 is actually three consecutively released movies. That would change things, if the NGE resembling 1.0 and 2.0 were less than half of Rebuild. It's not gonna happen, just throwing a craz...

Re: Current view of the Rebuild series and last movie expectations

I'm not so sure those Evas are meant to fight Wille. Wille has significant air and naval power but Nerv is mass producing land transport trucks and pallet rifles with prog knives rigged on them like bayonets. They're very poorly equipped to fight an airship like Wunder which could easily pick them o...

Re: What are aspects you actually like about Shikinami compared to Soryu as a character?

Mari changes too. In 2.0, she's a lone wolf type like Asuka. It's most apparent during the fight with the 10th Angel where she goes into battle without any support from HQ because she shut her comms of. In the next movie she's more of a team player and is apparently subordinate to Asuka since Mari f...

Re: What are aspects you actually like about Shikinami compared to Soryu as a character?

Does Shikinami even have parents? She tells Misato she's always been alone and was fine with that. Plus Misato seems to be the only person, adult or otherwise, that she initially wants to be around. Could you imagine Soryu trying to skip out on a field trip with Kaji because she'd rather spend time ...

I like that she doesn't throw herself at Kaji. Never cared for that bit of Soryu's character.

Re: Personal Status After Rebuild

Here's the problem: if things had gone Kaworu's way, The Human Instrumentality Project was going to happen anyway. There was no golden path where Shinji got what he was after because that wasn't the plan. Shinji was playing a losing game as soon as he decided to step foot in Unit 13. Seele still alm...

Re: Current view of the Rebuild series and last movie expectations

^Plus Seele is gone and we don't know what Gendo is planning to do. But the fact that Fuyutsuki thinks it'd be in Shinji's best interests if Gendo just opened up to him and the fact that this Gendo seems more pro-humanity and more of a co-conspirator and less a victim in Yui's conspiracies leads me ...

Re: Current view of the Rebuild series and last movie expectations

Full metal alchemist is different again- It was a show made before the source material was finished, so, just like many other anime- ended up having a different ending, made up buy the anime writers, a fan fiction. Fma brotherhood is the real, canon story. How it was made wasn't my point. The 2003 ...

Here's the chain of events: The kid is wearing the Predator's mask and gauntlet as a Halloween costume. He goes up to a house to trick or treat, but nobody answers. As he's walking away, this guy steps out onto the balcony. I thought this was one of the bullies but now that I get a better lo...

Re: Godzilla & Kaiju General!

Apparently Urobuchi and co wanted to do more crazy monster action but TOHO mandated that they couldn't have any monster vs monster fights. Like having the city transform into a 1km Mechagodzilla with all the Showa version's bizarre gimmicks or even have the city's cannons transform into Mechagodzill...

Wait the kid blows up some bully's house? This reminds me of something in South Park when Eric Cartman ruins the bullies life like has his parents fed to him but this works because we know Cartman is an asshole that's the role he plays...but to have a kid with autism do the same as you say not only...

Ack! I didn't get the notice that there were new posts. :facepalm: However, isn't it understandable that people have a hard time to disconnect these new movies from the original show? After all the first movie was basically just an animation update. Yeah, I didn't say it wasn't understandable. That ...

There's plenty of self-sacrifice in his other works, especially Gunbuster. If anything it's the 'death equals redemption' trope or the idea that killing yourself is a workable solution to your problems that he's against. Kaworu tried to fix a problem he himself caused by dying, but he didn't fix any...

Also what the hell was with the kid just blowing up the bully and his house and getting away with it? The token ev...
