Re: Khara's 10th Anniversary - Exhibition 11/23-11/30

Q ended in a way that suggests Shin Eva being about Shinji reconnecting with Wille and a final confrontation against his father. That is inherently boring. There is no reason to suppose that such a bald outline need be boring; it's all in the motivations and the telling. (Of course, I would say tha...

To be clear, my ‘sounds bad’ meant the idea, not the music (which I don’t recall noticing).

The heels give a jarringly effete air to the Eva, in my mind.

Re: Khara's 10th Anniversary - Exhibition 11/23-11/30

It is precisely because he has not limited himself that he could have had trouble deciding which of so many possible ways to go. Recalling the suggestion that the short until You come to me was based on a discarded final section of 3.33 indicates that he already had that problem even then.

Re: Behind Asuka's Eyepatch (Purely Speculation)

One thing we know is that the eyepatch has angel-sealing glyphs on it, so it is reasonable to assume some level of known or suspected remaining angelic contamination.

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

Also, the way that Hiro pretty much becomes a Klaxosaur from having licked Zerotsū's blood that one time feeds right into the former US racist "one drop of blood" doctrine.

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

If DarliFra is the new NGE it's in the way that it handles the symbolism it uses. I fail to detect anything about Darling in the FranXX which invites comparison with NGE . Naomi didn't even have a prosthesis for her missing right arm in the last, hand-holding, scene with Ikuno. Not did she or they ...

Re: [Music] The Grand Music Discussion Thread [3]

I am not upper class - to think I am is to fundamentally misunderstand the British class system. You don't graduate into the upper class. I suppose I scrape into the upper middle class. I fit Wikipedia's definition of it to a T, though - born in South-East England, arts professor for a father, board...

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

(3) Hiro releases her and also himself; their naked disembodied spirits float off into the void hand in hand to start a new world ( Ideon ending). Check. Though after floating around for a bit they actually return to the old world, as in: Hiro and Zerotsū's spirits, their bodies having been destroy...

Re: [Music] The Grand Music Discussion Thread [3]

Not upper (my mum came from a country vicarage; my dad from the slums of Sheffield). But yes, I’m afraid to say I was somewhat privileged in my upbringing. Sorry about that, but there’s nothing I can do about it now.

Hiro and Zerotsū's spirits, their bodies having been destroyed or combined into whatever Strelizia is called next week, return and inhabit the baby, giving it a serious case of split personality
