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

I haven't watched the series beginning to end in about 6 years. And I've only watched it that way about 4 or 5 times. Though on my most recent viewings, I noticed a couple things: Anno uses the most anime-esque sweatdrop ever as the final bit of humor that the series has when Asuka reacts to Hikari'...

Re: Rebuild Instrumentality Theory

I've mentioned at least once on this forum before that I have a general theory that every single "canon" iteration of Evangelion (NGE/Manga/Rebuild) is a world brought on by Instrumentality and that's been Anno's lynchpin to the plot of 3.0+1.0 and his ultimate finale to the Evangelion fra...

Him dying on the toilet had more dignity than that movie.


At the very least, when Elvis passed on, he was able to also pass on the contents of his bowels directly into the shitter.

Re: The James Bond Thread

After seeming to walk back the NYT report in a radio interview on whether or not he'd be returning to the role, Daniel Craig confirms that he'll be back as James Bond. He also said that the next film, which is due out in November of 2019, will be his final one. I think I know what they're going to d...

Re: First official image of "New Unit 2"

You guys all need to consider the possibility that Anno might pull an Anno again and have none of the plot ideas suggested in the preview trailer from the previous movie end up in the final film and is just baiting us. Also, if the rejected storyboards from 2.0 are anything to go on, we already have...

The fuck do you people think this franchise is? Clannad?

Anno will not provide us with maximum feels, no matter how much we'd want it.

Re: First official image of "New Unit 2"

This is the second time Anno has drawn a revamped version of Unit 02 for the lantern festival. The first was back in 2011, a little over a year before 3.0 would be released.

I think we're on track for a Fall 2018 release.

Re: What was/is the purpose of The End of Evangelion?

I think this has always been pretty easy to figure out. I always got the general impression from his interviews and statements that Anno was "satisfied" with EOTV, not that it was necessarily the one he wanted. There's a big difference in connotation there. By this point, almost everyone k...

Re: Evangelion's site and Facebook/Twitter covers updated with new images - First teases of Shin Eva

Something I just noticed: The official site's English poster for 3.0+1.0 is using the traditional Neon Genesis Evangelion title font instead of Anno's handwritten Evangelion title font that the Rebuilds have been using in every single poster up until this point. Even more sequel theory trolling/hint...

Re: Evangelion's site and Facebook/Twitter covers updated with new images - First teases of Shin Eva

Anno has officially reached Twin Peaks-level crypticness. "After that," could refer to events after the image in the picture, obviously after 3.0. "THE END" could refer to the end of the Rebuilds...or THE END OF EVANGELION, whose ending landscape this shot evokes. NOT could refer...

Re: EVA 2.0 OST= Kare Kano OST? WTF???

Here's a hot take: Sagisu's soundtracks have gotten notably worse over time. And by worse, I mean more overblown, overdramatic and cringingly cheesy. His choral work is particularly egregious in this regard. His 80s-90s work is far more beautiful-sounding than the stuff he's been producing lately. B...

Madoka Magica: Rebellion Well...that took the whole story to its logical conclusion. I've heard comparisons between this film and Q because of how polarizing they are within their respective fandoms, but, whereas I still think Q is seriously flawed, I can totally embrace and get behind Rebellion .

Wow. From the reactions I've seen, people either like Castlevania or outright hate it.
