Re: C.T.1290 versus Asuka. Examining the good and bad.

So because of so many viewpoints, it's hard to tell what Asuka might actually do, and what part of her characteristics are actually true. That's rather the point though, isn't it? It demonstrates that your rather fixed pessimistic view of her really is not the only view possible, which should give ...

You can try reading the usual hilariously emaciated print on the back of the DVD/BD box (assuming you have a Western version).

Re: C.T.1290 versus Asuka. Examining the good and bad.

And due to Asuka's last line "How disgusting", she could be stuck with that same personality for all I know. In my view, it might be hard for Asuka to break out of that old habit of hers, and I'm not sure what kind of changes she would made with the opportunity given to her. As for being ...

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

The fan can whip up a wind powerful enough to destroy things (Daikoku, Kofuku's shinki in Noragami is similar, but more specific in effect); in Araragi's fight, he uses his vampire powers (it's the moment at which he fully accepts his powers as a vampire) to transform his arms into ribbons which tr...

Re: C.T.1290 versus Asuka. Examining the good and bad.

Unethical how? You are judging her by denying the normal human process of growth and change. When was the part where she showed concern for him? You've been given two examples in the past few posts. What did she do in post Instrumentality, again? That was where she stroke his cheek, right? Because ...

Re: How To Characterize Shinji As An Adult?

Use his hands to hurt others, as Gendo did with the Dummy Plug. I feel that scene is often mis-construed (by Shinji as well as us). Gendou doesn't use Shinji's hands - he disables and bypasses them. If Shinji had been prepared to use his hands at that moment, he could have avoided the conflict with...

I hope it's not a difficult one, Sachi.

My old dog has gone up in weight from 19.5 to 20.4 kg; this will cause her insurance to change from "medium dog" to "large dog" (more expensive, of course) unless we can get her weight down again in a few weeks.

Re: If Mari is british...

Elvish, at least, is on topic: In the Japanese version, Mari speaks English to keep Shinji from understanding her phone call, so the idea is that, in an English language dub, she could use rhyming slang to achieve the same thing. Elvish is a suitably British secret language, being the invention of T...

Re: C.T.1290 versus Asuka. Examining the good and bad.

You know, looking back on some of these posts and upon reflecting on them, I began to wonder, how can some people on here be so positive and certain that Asuka really isn't this bad or mean person I've been making her out to be? Simple: some people express their optimism, and the human condition is...

Re: C.T.1290 versus Asuka. Examining the good and bad.

And remember that the choices we make determine our outcome, whether good or bad, depending on our choices. And they are all mixed up; the world is grey, as are the people in it. Such a simplistic view (that people can be simplified to either "good" or "bad") is bound to lead to...
