Re: [Film] The Trailers & Upcoming Films Thread

elaboration on the Akira LA-movie Thanks for elaborating. I've read the news on ANN and while they alluded to this being the issue it was nowhere near as clearly stated. (then again, it was 3 a.m after a long day of work). I have never heard of Deadline before, so even after googling I didn't click...

Re: [Film] The Trailers & Upcoming Films Thread

Unsurprisingly, the unnecessary live-action Akira movie has been shelved because they "couldn't find" ethnically appropriate actors who could carry a film of that scale. Take that nonsense excuse as you will. Either way, with a new anime series covering the manga in production this remake...

Re: Disney's Live Action Little Mermaid.

it'll probably be the 1994 Disney live-action remake of the Jungle Book, starring adult sexy Mowgli with abs. Wouldn't that just be Tarzan , though? The Little Mermaid was (alongside The Lion King ) my favorite movie as a little child - I don't mind the casting choice. I'm wondering, if they're gon...

@kuribo-04 thank you very much!

@ErgoProxy
I mean, yeah, but in Eva they need fantastic sci-fi technology, because havoc was brought upon the earth by fantastic sci-fi-technology in the first place.
So, the analogy still works, imo.

Uh, I need to look up this interview, sounds interesting!

After Q I thought it might be actively working against blindly following authoritarianism.
After AVANT, I'm pretty sure it's about combating climate change... I mean, it shows us the remediation of a world ravaged by human action.

Re: L-Barrier & Coreification

kuribo-04 : You've got it in reverse. As I pointed out earlier, "Anti-L" refers to the effects of the pillar that Maya et al. activate. Anti-L ELIMINATES the core effect. The L-Barrier, hostile to Lilin, is the RESULT of core-ification. It does make sense, if you look at it like this: L-B...

Re: Adams, Children, and the Nature of the Cycle

Wow, that's quite the analysis! Great Job, Reichu! Now I'm asking myself, did they really plan it that way and purposefully obfuscated it (or; if one observes how cryptically Anno communicates in general), or did all of this emerge from the sheer density of information provided. (like some scientist...

Re: L barrier va Core

Asuka kinda adresses this at the end of 3.33. We think, the "curse of Eva" might be related to this.
My theory is, since Paris' time seemed to stand still, maybe being corefied freezes your time so maybe the curse of Eva makes the children are codified, which is why they don't age.

Re: L barrier va Core

I was thinking, maybe the L is the same L from LCL?
Also, at the beginning of Evangelion 1.11, we see a huge outline on what looks like core-ified land... Which makes me think. Did they plan this all back then already?

Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media

Not really social media, but it's a smartphone app, and I don't think this warrants its own thread, so I'm gonna put this here. On the official Eva Extra App you can now watch a video recording of all the places AVANT01 was screened. It sadly doesn't support vertical view, and the recording of the L...

Don't get me wrong, I'm well aware about the importance of the Macross universe. I was just trying to say, that I'm (thankfully) not that emotionally invested in it.

Well, at least they've established more about Wille's goals, but why exactly does NERV want the earth to stay core-ified?

Re: Visually matching shots

This is such a cool idea! The thing I love most about Evangelion is its cinematography, something just resonates with me, in how Anno puts images together to tell a story. You've already got a pretty good list going! Finally a comprehensive list with all the parallelisms. - Of course Shinji hitting ...

First of all, Anno confirming Lilith for Smash was kinda unexpected, tbh. Second of all, neither Megumi Ogata nor Yoko Takahashi were in the AVANT01 teaser, kinda funny they presented it. I mean, Sagisu lives in Paris from what I've gathered? And his score is in the movie, so it would make sense for...
