Re: Why do some people not want to talk about 3.0/Q before the last movie comes out?

Some people find that Q makes them so miserable, and so uncertain of how Shinji's situation can be resolved, that they don't want anything more to do with it until they know that there is a resolution. These people have found the delayed appearance of the last film especially difficult to cope with.

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

Redline really is a visual treat, for sure, though I found the story didn't much interest me (not saying anything against it, though).

I'm please to note that in rewatching Eureka SeveN I'm picking up details I missed first time through. Also a general reminder to myself that it really is good.

Re: Is it normal to be traumatized by Evangelion?

Anno is very clear that it is not for him to give you an answer, though. In the end, the best lessons are those you are able to learn for yourself; Evengelion may offer a pointer and a hint as to a direction you might benefit from looking in.

Re: Is it normal to be traumatized by Evangelion?

You are not alone, though the strength of people's reactions depends a lot on their life circumstances. The important thing is to realise that the endings (both the series and the End of Evangelion film) are , even if it's not fully spelt out, optimistic . Shinji has discovered in the end that he ca...

Re: FML general thread [8]

Lead off roofs is a common one. In this country, typically off churches, but I have a friend who had lead flashing stolen from his new conservatory.

There's certainly been a case where signalling cables alongside a railway track was stolen for the copper - that created havoc, as you might expect!

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

Re My Hero Academia . What's happening here is that in order to get to the end of this cour without starting on the next big (and long) villain arc, they are having to pad out the licence tests. This week's episode was almost entirely not from the manga but anime-original filling. In the manga the p...

Re: An Observation on the Evas

Frankly, I never bought that berserk mode was the Evas' true natures coming out, or that dummy plugs actually exterted any control other than initiating it. There's a far simpler explanation that also ties in much better with the themes of the series. Do you mean that the Eva is simply reflecting t...

Re: Official Happy Birthday Thread

Thanks for the greetings, folks - it was a good day. By the end of it I'd had a good meal, and acquired a new tablet (Huawei M5, replacing my old Google Nexus 7 which can't play H265) and a couple of books by Murakami.

Back to a "real" Shinji. This is from Shinji's nightmare while trapped within Leliel in episode 16; the infant Shinji speaks to the dreaming Shinji in an adult voice, saying "It was yourself you ran away from". https://cassland.org/images/EG/Avis/Shinji-Leliel_125.jpg https://cas...

Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media

Shin can mean new, I understand. So either it's a new movie to complete the series, or it will finally take the story to a new resolution. Take your pick.

Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media

Given how 2.22 ended, and indeed what happened in 3.33, it seems very strange to say that things are the same as in the series. I mean, by the end of 3.33, we have had an interrupted third impact, some other kind of third impact, and an interrupted fourth impact. None of these have happened before t...

Re: Everything is Rockin'! [RML Thread 4]

Family members present were two great grandchildren, four grandchildren (and one boyfriend), two children (and spouses), ex-wife (and spouse), my wife and me. But enough...

Re: First look at Unit 08 and Mari from the theatrical teaser for 3.0+1.0

And for something that's explicitly publicity it seems a pretty stupid choice.

Maybe they feel they'll get a greater amount of bad publicity this way, which will be good for them...

Re: DummyPlug real voice

Well, the video is perfectly correct. I have done this for myself from my BD, and reversing the audio at the point the dummy plug is engaged in 2.22 you can quite clearly hear it say: To be dominated by me is not as bad for human pride as to be dominated by others of your species which is a quote fr...

Re: Evangelion Final: 2020

Given that the trailer is a form of advertising, it seems odd to (a) restrict access to it, and (b) get uptight about the matter. But that's modern copyright law in action for you I suppose...
