Re: The most disturbing moment in Evangelion

I would say on a purely psychological level, Yui's decision to mould Shinji into being the lynchpin for her plan from the beginning and how coolly she acted around carrying the whole thing out is pretty damn disturbing. It sure is something for a parent to decide to traumatize their child by faking ...

Re: Toji's Squandered Potential

It really is rather strange. Anno said that he originally had plans about killing Toji, but could not go through with it, due to him promising as a part of the sponsorship deal with King Records that he would not kill any child characters. But in the manga, the moment where Toji is killed off feels ...

Re: Why must Asuka be "the best" pilot?

I think what is another important part of what is at the root of Asuka's whole paradox, can be read from the two different pleas she delivers to her mother, namely: Okay, I'll die with you, Mom. So, please don't quit being my mom! Okay, Mom?! And: Mom! Mom! Please don't kill me! No! I'm not your dol...

Re: Does Rei Ayanami have schizophrenia?

The premise of slapping a human diagnosis on someone who is at least somewhat beyond human is questionable.

Re: Personal Status After Rebuild

I know what you mean. I can relate to the feeling that the Rebuild series has just been keeping its wheels spinning and that the characters haven't really gone anywhere nor changed significantly, despite Rebuild overtly changing things when it comes to visuals and setting. I think there should be a ...

Re: Netflix Rights and Redub

Personally, I'm kind of looking forward to what Netflix's spin on a re-dub might be. While I prefer subs, I don't actively dislike the old dub (nowadays, at least), but it does have a lot of problems and a re-dubbing of the series is something I have been hoping for ever since the release of the big...

Re: Was Yui nearly as bad as Gendo?

I think a consideration that is also worth brining up in this thread, is that Gendo and Yui by all appearances both had the same core motivation of ultimately wanting what is best for Shinji, and were willing to hurt him in the process, but rationalizing this with the idea that it would eventually b...

Re: Was Yui nearly as bad as Gendo?

I'd say that regardless of everything else, her apparent decision to throw Asuka under the bus in EoE, by all appearances for the purpose of breaking Shinji further mentally, does undeniably paint her in a bit of a ruthless light.

Re: What do you think Gendo was like at Shinji's age?

I would say that Gendo's immense sense of self-loathing also counts against him being a sociopath. Sociopaths believe that they are entitled to others' affection. It is pretty much the entirely opposite with Gendo; he strongly believes that he is inherently too worthless and terrible of a person to ...

Well, to cite a classic (and a great moment from Mr. Plinkett's "The Force Awakens" review): Asuka might be a "bad egg" but "blaming the kids is a lie and a shame. You know exactly who's to blame..."

Re: Lilith in human history

I would like to think that Lilith walked around at first and in doing so s/he influenced ancient mythology as in it there are many references to Star people in some mythologies that would be very fitting to Lilith in that she'd be part of the mythology but humanity not really realizing it. http://w...

Re: Introduction, Toxicity of AsuShin and other things

The manga implies Yui can move he just has to call up on her so Shinji could have done the same in EOE. I know, but the manga is not really the same as the anime though, as the character and circumstances are quite different. I could go on a long diatribe about it, but I think that is way outside t...

as well as his inability to help her during her last stand against the MPEs.? I have got to ask, because I see this one pop up quite a bit. What exactly could Shinji have done in this situation? Yui held all the cards at this point and she deliberately waited to until Asuka was really most sincerel...

Getting quite a bit further into the game and my problems with the dialogue system remains. You rarely ever get the option to just say "No" to quests, and the SARCASTIC option is so vague that it might as well be a straight up coin toss every time it pops up. Also reintroducing percentage ...

Okay, so far I'm digging most of the game, but I really loathe the dialogue system, even more than I feared I would. It comes across like a blend between an artifactual attempt at aping Mass Effect and a general dumbing down. Worst of all, it just feels so very un-Fallout like. The choices are e...

I know, but I shouldn't have to cheat/glitch my way through part of the game to skip it and when I did that I ended up messing up a quest because I met the giver too early. I'd say that using the two Stealth Boys you can find in the starting area to bypass the Deathclaws doesn't really ...
