Re: "We'll treat you very well"

^ Asuka may be abrasive and a bully sometimes, but that doesn't really make her a villain, much in the same way Shinji's passiveness towards others in their time of need doesn't make him the bad guy either, like when Misato needed comfort when Kaji was killed. The tragedy of Evangelion is not the fa...

Re: NemZ Has Passed Away

When I saw the notice on Evageeks talking about what happened to NemZ, I was literally stunned for words and couldn't really comprehended what I was reading. We often try to prepare ourselves for moments like these, because we explore and discuss many of the deeper issues on the forums, but when thi...

Criticism of Evangelion: Accept, Reject, or Both?

It's no secret that Evangelion is not only the most influential anime of all time, but probably the most polarizing anime to date, in either you love the series, or hate it to apathy. Perhaps the most polarizing aspect of the series, is in it's characters, especially towards Shinji as the main chara...

Re: God's personality

In my personal opinion, "God" is whatever we make of ourselves, within ourselves, basically giving us the drive to move forward in life, be it Hope, faith, or whatever can help you enjoy life and push on. I don't really subscribe to any religious doctrine, as humanity is flawed and has a h...

Re: Is Asuka really deserving of sympathy?

I dunno, man. They actually need the pilots to get through phase 1 of their plan (kill the Angels); they don't need them for phase 2 (HIP). Intentionally making the pilots worse at performing their only job will do the exact opposite of ensuring that Instrumentality is on track: it will guarantee t...

Big problem: the Children were never "supposed" to be the instigators of Instrumentality. Seele had their own plan for setting it off (which we know didn't require the kids in any way, since they ordered the JSSDF to terminate them on sight ), and Gendo had his (wherein he intended to pla...

It's kinda become a running joke by now, the idea that NERV's mental health department must be staffed entirely by the most incompetent people this side of the pacific.

Not sure if this is a joke, but do I have to point out that you could look at nearly every aspect of Eva this way? You can't shake a 3 inch stick in Eva without bumping into one horrible amalgamation of untreated psychosis or another. Sometimes you have to ask some tough questions to get to the roo...

Re: Just finished watching The End of Evangelion...

Ghosts of Evangelion is a great Post-EOE fic. It has joined the pantheon of so many fics that try to give the characters a happy and believable ending.....AND it Succeeds in spades!

Re: Frustration with other Eva communities?

Always remember that the root of the words fandom and fan is fanatic . What about FANtastic ? It's kind of a "half-glass-full or half-glass-empty" kind of deal when it comes to fandoms. Are you going to let yourself define them from the fanatics who both troll and cause trouble, or from t...

Re: FanFiction Requests/Recommendations/Discussion etc.

The problem with Kadmon's fics is that they're so relentlessly dark they cross the line into self-parody on a regular basis. A Throne of Bayonets and Genocide are much better options IMO (though IIRC the former goes full WAFF in its sequel). To be fair, Throne of Bayonets did have a pretty BLEAK pr...

This is the ultimate feel bad Evangelion fanfic. :cringe: Ugh!
