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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

If it's in the hands of some one who would bring back the old cast, I have to doubt this is in very good hands. But hey, maybe we'll get a West coast dub, from Bang Zoom or Studiopolis. Though NYAV is using West and East coast people now, and they've been handling new Gundam dubs well. I wouldn't mi...

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

That old English dub doesn't hold up at all, and I'm shocked that so many people have been defending it on Twitter, as if it were the Cowboy Bebop or Hellsing dubs. The sooner we can purge Evangelion of Spike Spencer and Tiffany Grant, the better. Though, if it ever gets re-released on discs again, ...

Re: Netflix Rights and Redub

I am 100% behind a redub with a completely new cast. I agree with penguintruth's thoughts on Spencer and Grant's performances. I think their performances in particular (and the way they may have been directed) have done more to pigeonhole their characters as "whiny coward" and "bitch...

Re: Netflix Rights and Redub

The old dub was horrid! Spike Spencer’s Shinji is a gross exaggeration of the character, a whiny, stereotypical “coward” voice, and Tiffany Grant’s Asuka wasn’t much better. Why make a new dub with the old cast? That defeats the whole point. It’s not like the old dub was wildly inaccurate, just poor...

But THEY ARE Shinji and Asuka. They've been with the characters longer than any other VA and understand them better. I don't think Spike Spencer understands Shinji Ikari whatsoever. He plays him like this garish, over-the-top stereotype coward character without any subtlety. I guarantee he&...

One year later, I'm still just as disappointed with a movie wherein nothing at all happens and only two characters even matter.

And a year of mourning for my dear, disappeared penguin.

I spent most of the movie tilting my head, trying to figure out just what I was looking at. The visuals have become so stylized that it's often difficult to discern one object from the next. They waste time on stupid things like Shinji and Kaworu staring longingly into each others eyes for an ha...

Mari is Pen Pen.

Think about it. They've never been in the same place at the same time.

The reason she was able to activate ZA BEASTO is because "she" is a BEASTO.

Perhaps Shinji being literally a man-child is Anno's not-so-subtle jab at the fans of the TV series still being in the same place they were back when it came out?

How far was Kaji to the epicenter compared to Gendo and Fuyutski?

Why did Touji's sister survive? Is there any reason to believe she was inside some zone of safety that Touji or Kensuke weren't in? Or, more importantly, Pen Pen?
