Note - the guy in the fur coat with a sax who leads the other performers on to the stage is Shiro Sagisu himself.

Re: Pictures Thread 2.22: You Can (Not) Advance

https://cassland.org/images/2017FirstSnow.JPG Very pretty snow this morning - but the main roads around Oxford have completely closed sections, so my intended trip to London (for a 90th birthday lunch party) is sadly off. My daughter was stuck on a blocked main road for several hours, but has just ...

Which order are you watching Haruhi? TV, DVD, or chronological?

Re: Introduction, Toxicity of AsuShin and other things

Any parent can tell you that in real life it was almost impossible to predict how their children would turn out and what relationships they would form; the mind and the world are both too complex to know the answers to everything. In the case of the characters from Eva we have far less information t...

That can equally apply to carers, nurses, and the like - it is not the same as romantic love; the difference is not merely semantic.

Re: If Mari and Asuka are/were Gay. . .

Your NGE images barely relate to what you say; the EoE ones are from a single scene which is not even real life; the manga scene is before they even knew each other. The Rebuild scenes are more indicative - but really only when taken in isolation. (And note that I'm saying that even though I don't s...

Re: Introduction, Toxicity of AsuShin and other things

Some people seem to have a low threshold for what they class as romance - I hope they don't get disappointed in real life.

Re: Introduction, Toxicity of AsuShin and other things

Most of the time it's irritation, somewhat tempered with concern. But her saying his name at the start of Q indicates that she still thinks he could have a role to play, even after 14 years. None of these things indicate that he is "nothing" to her - but none of them are romantic either.

There are plenty of places where this is strongly disputed - here for one.

I always question everything.

You make it sound as if you think there's no one else who does.

Re: What could Silver Bell mean? What do you think?

Google finds plenty of Silver Bell restaurants, a bakery, and the like. But looking to Japan in particular, the Silver Bell was/is a favoured meeting spot in Tokyo station , especially before the time of cell phones. So one could conjecture that it is a meeting place for those who get lost (yeah - n...

Re: How do you like your Gendo?

he doesn't really apply himself to anything, except EVA, which he does for praise. Actually, Shinji applies himself to domestic matters, especially cooking - and not, as far as I can see, for praise. He does it for his own health and comfort because he can't bear to live in as slovenly a way as Mis...

Re: Net Neutrality Vote on Dec 13th! (#SaveNetNeutrality)

I had the same, but enabling a US-linked VPN got the page to come up for me. If you don't have a VPN, use the Opera browser which has one built in (you have to enable it in the Settings before the on/off button for it appears).

Isn't that rather the point of fiction? Especially that which addresses real problems as this one does.

Re: Net Neutrality Vote on Dec 13th! (#SaveNetNeutrality)

The 2015 decision didn't establish net neutrality - it was the default state of the Internet (and the FCC had fined a company that broke it as early as 2004, one year after the term was coined); in 2015 the FCC made clear that ISPs in the USA were to be regarded as common carriers. Put simply, the I...
