Re: Rei or Asuka?

It would be nice if Shinji was just okay with being with himself.

That said, at least Asuka isn't a clone of his mom.

Wait, Shinji is now technically old enough to date Misato, right? Misato.

Re: Stuff that you would like to see in Evangelion 3.0+1.0

Things actually happening, the plot and characters developing, anything that actually ADDS something to the overall picture, an apology for 3.33, with it just having been a bad dream or something. Pen Pen.

Re: "EVANGELION:3.0+1.0 AVANT 1 (from beginning to 10:40) Version 0706" discussion and prediction thread

As others have said in previous threads, i wouldn't consider Mari a main character like Shinji and co. More a secondary Character, like the Bridge Bunnies and Sakura She's not a character at all. Which is why opening yet another movie with her maneuvering in an Eva against some random mishmash of i...

Thnking of this, maybe Anno set things this way and not another, because he thinks it is your job to make Mari meaningful in your fanfiction - instead of behaving like a spoiled consumer who's to lazy to do shit by himself, but he feels he's right to grumble and make demands. Don't you think? You h...

At least Noriko was a character. Mari is just glorified wank material.

They had two movies to make Mari into something. They didn't. So it's already too late to make us care about her in a big action opening sequence. All she does is action, she has no development. This is just a lot of random shiny visuals, like waving keys in front of our faces. I've never been so un...

Just great, like in the previous movie, they're trying to dazzle us with shiny visuals and befuddle us with technobabble right out of the gate to distract from the fact that it is IMPOSSIBLE to care about what's going on or who it's going on with, especially with Mari, who we still know nothing abou...

Re: Netflix English Dub Discussion

I ended up doing a whole blog post about why I feel the new dub captures more of the characters’ subtleties. I managed to get in a good amount of explanation. However, to summarize, the old dub is broader and exaggerated while the new one feels more natural and has more shades.

And, of course, the best performance of all is Cherami Leigh as Pen Pen. It's a vital role that not just anyone can play. He's a principle player in the series!

Or just hates the original's VAs guts on an almost personal level according to post history. Way to use your first post to attack me personally. But I guess I set myself up for it, as opinionated as I am. I dislike the original English dub VAs because I didn't like their performances. I like the ne...

Re: Netflix English Dub Discussion

Spencer's Shinji was a garish parody of the character, though. An over-emphasis on whininess and whimpiness without the sensitive fragility.

Re: Netflix English Dub Discussion

Fine, I merely saw a series of clips, but some of them were important scenes (like the ending of Episode 26). I know the series well enough to know whether I like how they handled those scenes, and felt like they did. It'll be some time before I can go and watch the whole thing with the new dub. My ...

Re: Netflix English Dub Discussion

I'm frankly flabbergasted that the response is so negative. This dub absolutely obliterates the old ADV dub, especially in the VAs for Shinji and Asuka, who actually sound like real characters, and not just cardboard exaggerations. There's so much more nuance in the new dub, characters have room to ...

Re: [NEWS] Neon Genesis Evangelion coming to Netflix Spring 2019

It puts a real smile on my face that neither Spencer or Grant will be allowed to drag down this new dub. Though it could have its own host of problems, depending on the ADR studio and new cast. Which, by the way, I’m impatiently awaiting the reveal of.

Re: [NEWS] Neon Genesis Evangelion coming to Netflix Spring 2019

I love how they spent years working on the dub for 3.33, and it wasn't any better than the dubs for the first two movies: fine, but not great. Still had Spencer and Grant (though, to be fair, Asuka had maybe eight lines in the whole movie). Maybe it's just because I loathe 3.33 in general, but it di...

Re: [NEWS] Neon Genesis Evangelion coming to Netflix Spring 2019

The desperation makes me want them to recast out of principle now. I already didn’t like these VAs in their roles, now I’m actually starting to dislike them as people. Spencer especially has been annoying on Twitter.

Eh, I thought MacAvery and Swasey were both decent enough. Neither of their Gendos were performances I had a problem with. But I wouldn't be signing any petitions to rehire either of them.

Nerd journalists are starting to use the tweets of the English dub cast members as a source for their new click-bait articles. (I've never heard of "Twinfinite" before in my life.) When it hit its high points though, Evangelion had a dub on par with Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, or any of the oth...

Any woman who can do a soft, distant voice can be a great Rei. She may be a vital character, but vocally, not exactly a meaty role.
