Re: FanFiction Requests/Recommendations/Discussion etc.

We all have different ideas who is well-known. I have known about David Lynch for decades, but only heard of Michael Bay last year (and have never seen anything by him). The Guardian once called Lynch “Possibly the most important director of this era”. If I don’t get someone’s reference, I look it u...

Re: Evangelion Re-Release

To fund the creation of what you steal.

To be clear, I have bought several anime in languuages I don’t speak, because they are not available in English; I then feel justified in acquiring illegal copies I can actually understand.

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

Don’t forget that Hiro was the clear leader of the group originally, and their feelings for him are grounded in that. His naming them was a significant part of that too. His apparent betrayal of Mitsuru was actually because some of his memories, including his promise, were removed after he met (and ...

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

so far, it's yet another story about a clueless, uncharismatic boy falling in love with a magical/demon girl (who is actually his FORGOTTEN CHILDHOOD FRIEND™ and with whom he shares a DARK AND TRAGIC PAST™ ) and being orbited by a harem of women who fight for his attention for no discernible reason...

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

Speaking of the show's Evangelion references, here's one I don't think you guys picked up on. So you know how, before Hiro pilots it, Strelitiza has more animalistic, feline shape? Now take a look at Asuka's "Nyangouki" Beast Mode from the third movie and tell me you don't see it . Asuka'...

Even making a list of topics which a FAQ could link to threads on would be a significant undertaking. It's generally easier to use the search facilities.

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

I've finally been persuaded that I should watch Darling in the FranXX - but it'll be a while before I catch up enough to say anything about that. I've started the new season with Piano no Mori - The Piano Forest . Though curiously the manga is translated as The Perfect World of Kai (by whom, I don't...

Re: The End of Evangelion: Fansub Amalgamation

Are you seriously asking why it is obvious that a German name is likely to be German? And this isn't even a translation issue at all - it's no more than your latching on to an inappropriate romanisation for some reason. They took the German name "Kiel", this was then represented in kana as...

Re: The End of Evangelion: Fansub Amalgamation

"Kiel" and "Lorenz" are both German names. But then, there's this from The Essential Evangelion Chronicles, Side A, p36:
The only personal information that is readily known about Kiel [sic] includes the fact that he is originally from Germany [...]

Even in England, Keel is a far less likely name than Kiel.

Re: If Shinji commits suicide...

On the flip side, Wille probably doesn't know that Shinji thinks he destroyed the world. He never mentioned that at any point during the fight in Central Dogma so there's this huge clusterfuck of a misunderstanding where Shinji is acting on faulty information and thinks Asuka and Mari are trying to...

Re: Debate the quality of Rebuild here. [2]

@DarkBluePhoenix: Remember that 3.33 is not a dispassionate observation of what happens, by an unbiased observer; it is shown effectively from Shinji's perspective almost entirely. So we must consider the extent to which your complaints are actually complaints against Shinji's perception of the time...
