Re: These Moons Were Made For Walking (Weird Image Thread 8)

Hmm. That's a pretty good representation of quite a lot of my view of life.

Re: If Shinji were to die in the final film.

It's just hard to tell exactly how it would impact them, in a good or bad way, considering how negative they were towards him. It's apparent that they blamed him for the impacts he caused. And it's true they did spare his life given the opportunity to end it, but I don't think it outweighs the nega...

Re: If Shinji were to die in the final film.

It must be tiring trying to find ways to justify all these unsupported claims about what happens in this series.

Because the characters in this story, Asuka included, have generally not lost their human decency. (Not sure about Gendō, though!)

Re: If Shinji were to die in the final film.

How is it that she would hate him more for choosing "the easy way out"? Wouldn't that relieved her problem towards him at least? No decent human prefers the suicide of an acquaintance to some other means of resolving their problems. I would like to think that Asuka is depicted as a decent...

Re: Let's Watch NGE Together! Unofficial Commentary Thread

Thanks. Sadly that article has neither dates nor useful references. The earlier references I have been able to find to "Geo-Front" are in 1989, and both used quotes which I took to indicate that it was a somewhat new and unfamiliar term.

Re: Let's Watch NGE Together! Unofficial Commentary Thread

The term "Geofront" (usually as "Geo-Front" in the subtitles) gets used without explanation, and Shinji is clearly familiar with it. I had never heard it before, so it was meaningless to me on first watching. I gather it was used earlier in Patlabor , and in the Gits manga, but e...

Re: Evangelion Pic Thread 10: The Society for the Appreciation Of The Premium Girl (and her friends)

Just wondering: Are most of the (uncredited) posts here drawn by the poster, or is it understood that people don't always draw what they post? I ask, because I'm not sure exactly how much I should compliment them :). The images in this thread are not originals. Sometimes people provide a link to th...

Re: From Your Lips to the Author's Ears: Story Ideas

I thought that Shinji and Asuka/Rei (didn't know which) would have to team up together in order to stop 3I. And that 3I would be caused by some sort of, cosmic intercourse. But, in doing so, they would be so in sync with each other, that they would accidentally engage in their own cosmic intercours...

Re: Official "What should I watch next?" thread

Pretty good (and very pretty), but doesn't reach greatness IMO. Lots of WAFF. Just go and enjoy it for what it is without worrying about people's opinions - it's certainly worth that much.

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

Not quite so! While the original story is indeed more or less wrapped up now, the current season of novels takes place after a five-year timeskip and follows Koyomi into adulthood. Thanks for the update! I was speaking of the "Off Season" novels, whose chronology within the story of the F...

You seem to have the right of it though, however, crazy that may seem. But I won't go further, as I suspect this is on the edge of ye olde Serious Discussion territory.

Re: From Your Lips to the Author's Ears: Story Ideas

So i guess my question is, how come it isn't explored? From what I've read Asuka often features prominently in most post-Q fics but her relationships consist of Shinji Mari or Rei, yet not a whole lot with Misato beyond her being the boss. Well, in my case their relationship simply wasn't a focus, ...

As I recall, it was quite well done; but for me the basic premiss was unconvincing, and became more so as the series proceeded.

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

The story will end with Zoku-owarimonogatari , though we've already had the postscript in the form of Hanamonogatari . All the subsequent novels (and the various short stories in various places) are further episodes within the story already told to its end, so while they would be good to have, they ...

Fuller details than the link I gave before.

As for why, you'd have to ask the hacker - because they could is as likely a reason as any.

ANN - animenewsnetwork hacked

In case anyone's not aware, ANN had its paid-up and active domain name stolen from under its nose and moved to another registrar, pointing at a different (useless) server. Also their Twitter account was taken over and deleted (it's been replaced, but the old content is lost). The ANN servers are unt...
