The animation was decent but not great for a feature film , the characters were not well established (see the recurring gripes about Shikinami and Mari), and the plot was not particularly intriguing as of Ha. So no, they weren't established clearly enough for me, or for many others. Als...

He may love Shinji, as a god loves his creations, but he is very clearly working to his own goals. I... I'm pretty sure there's more to it than that. You see, when a man really really likes another man sometimes they take that relationship a step further and start loving each other in a way...

No previously-unreported differences between 3.0 and 3.33 popped out at me. I suspect that the majority are so subtle that you'd need to do a "3.0 in one window, 3.33 in the other" compare and contrast to find them. (Hmm, any chance of an illicit 3.0 BD rip hitting the Interwebs?&...

Assuming tickets are still available, I should be seeing this tomorrow, just to see how my experience compares. I've spent $10 on more frivolous things... Despite my complaints, it was definitely worth it. The space scene looks amazing through a projector, especially with its introduction. I wa...

I personally felt the Portland showing was fun, almost like everyone in the whole room was in on the joke and no one was left out. That would have been ok, but personally I feel that it hit an extreme. I think the occasional moment was funny, but there were definitely moments laughed at that weren&...

I went to the theater in Portland Oregon last Friday and it was enjoyable minus a few set backs. The image from the Evangelion subreddit sums it up nicely: [url]http://www.reddit.com/r/evangelion/comments/1uzf5s/evangelion_333_the_theatrical_experience_in_one/ It's unfortunate, but it seems like...

I'll be honest with you guys, I think it's far more likely they wanted to use the same 3d model of Eva Unit 01 instead of modeling the hole in it's chest for a simple and short cut that really doesn't show off that much of the hole. I'd chalk it down to saving time and money, bas...

Just because you can't comprehend it doesn't make it "lazy" writing. To be fair, I there's some legitimacy to questioning the realism of the complacent nature that the characters seem to have in 3.0. There's definitely a bit of a stretch to believe that Gendo really planne...

Arguably Shinji didn't really do very much. Sure he got pissy at Misato, but it was Rei who saved him. Sure he piloted eva 13, but he only did it because Kaworu convinced him to and ultimately it's questionable whether or not he was actually at all in control of what Unit-13 did. I'm not...

I think people may be reading way too into the S-DAT. Unless it has a core, I don't think it can carry a soul. I think what's much more plausible is that it represents a strong emotional connection with Rei 2.22 and essentially every other human being he has interacted with except Misato. It...

I've been wondering about that as well. I still have no earthly idea how it got into Nerv's possession. I'm pretty sure they were collecting what they could of school uniforms, and perhaps purposely choose to give him Touji's shirt so he would confront Kaworu about "his friends...

I honestly wouldn't be surprised if all of the glyph sequences we see in the movies were made by encoding different pieces of music using that chart. I just can't see Anno doing something like this randomly.... EDIT: So I decided to go through the part with the DSS Choker glyphs and record ...

It's pretty interesting how Fuyutsuki plays a pretty normal father role in this movie, in some ways. The thing he told Shinji is something you'd expect a father to talk to his son about, and even makes a point to tell gendo that before doing so. In other words, I think his motive was merely ...

All that being said, maybe everything about the Magical SDAT Player, including the track listings, can be traced back to his father in some way. After all, using the SDAT Player's track listings to reference episode numbers seems irrelevant since there aren't any episodes in NME. (If th...
