Re: Evangelion 3.0+1.0: 2020

OTOH there's been no physical release of the Japan Animator Expo series, which I would have expected. Was I unreasonable?

Re: If Mari and Asuka are/were Gay. . .

For me the strongest indication in Q that Asuka thinks about Shinji at all is the fact that in the opening sequence she spontaneously calls for his help, even though we see shortly after that the others don't really even expect him to emerge from Unit-01 are are surprised that he did. After fourteen...

Yeah - to catch the old bookmarks, I guess, though you'd expect the old domain to be set up to forward.

Re: Blue Uru: It Is Happening

Fukushima Gainax (weren't they calling themselves just Gaina now?) The heavily stylised logo on their website (your link) doesn't have an x on the end. As has been mentioned elsewhere, this seems to be a way of hiving off a working company while leaving the rump to go bankrupt from the debt to Anno...

Re: Evageeks Discord Server

I'd like to note here that if you join the Eva Discord linked by Sachi above, you get access to "Eva-Radio", a channel in which a bot (called Shinji) plays music from Eva for you continuously. Over 450 tracks are in the playlist, which is continually shuffled. As well as all the NGE and Re...

Re: Reboot or Ripoff?

You can argue that; or you can argue that the suits are limiting the means of expression to suit their constrained view of the world of entertainment as a branch of finance. After all, stories of human relationships and conflict are always going to have common aspects; what is new in each good work ...

Re: Was Yui nearly as bad as Gendo?

By not breaking out of the Bakelite sooner, thus preventing Shinji going to help her in time to possibly make a difference.

You could argue that Shinji's own reluctance had caused enough delay for it to make no further difference, but I'd say it can be seen either way.

Re: Did Anno Seek to Undermine Rei with Rebuild?

I'm not sure that was clear from the beginning (I remember being puzzled that the Jo-Ha-Kyū terminology was being used for four films). Certainly while Q was being made we were told that the fourth film would follow within a year, and I seem to recall that being viewed as a surprise. But memory is f...

Re: Did Anno Seek to Undermine Rei with Rebuild?

It can be noted that the movie was supposed to be the finale, which was changed into the first part of two over time. There were intended to be four films from the start. Before Q was finished, there was some talk of the final film coming out almost simultaneously with it - but as we know, that did...
