Re: Sadamoto fighting on Twitter, denying war crimes and discriminating Koreans, possibly falling out with Khara

Even before hearing about the recent Japan/Korea tensions, I was unexcited by this news. To save myself more effort I'll just quote myself from another forum: Hmm. Man in late 50s says something which younger people (most obviously) find offensive (maybe justifiably). Doesn't sound like the most sta...

I see that as being what motivates him not to, myself.

There is no way that Unit-01 doesn't have a crucial role in the ending.

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

Strongly agreed!

Meanwhile, the twist at the end of this week's episode of Black Clover was quite stunning, while still turning out to be completely logical.

Re: The idea of a timeloop

It can go all the way - it's just your choice to see it differently. Do you want us to start on the connections between Evangelion and Nadia next? Because they're there to be found without looking very hard. Many artists just love carrying common themes and ideas through their work, sometimes treati...

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

Seeing the kind of detail you're finding to analyse in these films, I'm amused to recall how often they have been criticised as lacking depth compared with the series.

Re: Digital Enhancement of Episode 16

That quality is essentially the same as on the Khara "Archive" DVD set, but at a slightly higher resolution (and showing the slight degradation of the modest up-scaling). That is much the same for any DVDs issued before the Japanese "Renewal" remastering. Here's one the your imag...

It make no reference at all to the series, which is what you have been trying to link a time loop to. And in any case, there are other explanations which have been proposed and discussed.

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

I wanted to back off from becoming a slave to running series as I had somewhat last season. I started by only continuing with series I was already watching ( Fruits Basket , Carole & Tuesday , Black Clover ). I've now added just one to that list, which is Given . Given is to some extent a story ...

Re: The idea of a timeloop

I have to keep repeating this same basic point - Watsonian explanations are not Doylist explanations. You have to explain why so many hints that seem to be pointing to a time loop more than anything else were put in if the actual reason was something completely different. To be blunt: no we don't ....

In which case you should be happy to assume that Anno would not deliberately taint the heritage of his earlier work.

Re: The idea of a timeloop

No, the allusions are more than mere coincidence. Do you have any evidence for this other than your own view? Why else would the Rebuilds start with a shot of waves when there's no such shot in the original episode 1? How about because they're different stories ? A fact which is more and more appar...
