I believe it was Shinji who first concluded the kitten was orphaned and all alone.

I agree. It's also largely representative of Shinji's greatest flaw which is cowardly inaction masquerading as "kindness." It was "kind" not to attack Toji in Unit 03 but in the process he did more harm than good. he could have at least tried something to immobilize the i...

Thank you. Before the manga I graciously accepted I was out of my depth in a lot of areas but the manga was a lot more...concise than the anime so I feel more comfortable expressing myself. The manga just gets to the point while the anime beats around it with needlessly convoluted and cryptic conver...

Manga Kaworu's Death - A Supreme Act of Selfishness?

I am on Volume 13 of the NGE manga now. i bought all 13 volumes off Viz's website this month and just have to wait for Volume 14 to come out in November I guess. In the meantime though, I must express a dislike for Manga Kaworu. Oh no, it has nothing to do with his and Shinji's interactions ...

So wait is it SEELE or Seele? I thought it was supposed to all be in caps?

Kinda not really important but figured I'd might as well ask here.

How much did (Anime) Shinji know?

So obviously we the audience know all about the giant conspiracy with SEELE and Second and Third Impact and all that. But I only watched the anime through once (and didn't much care for it...) and to see how it compares and contrasts with the anime I am currently reading the manga. I'...

Well if it's false, so much the better. Either way though, I definitely prefer the anime's finale. It was a bit disappointing at the time but once you get that NGE is about the characters, and more specifically about Shinji's character, the anime's ending is perfectly satisfactory. E...

Well I've been told elsewhere that all of those "retcons" were the "real story". I absolutely did not enjoy End of Evangelion but apparently it was the intended ending and the anime's ending was just something they had to slap together because of budget or whatever. Still...

Out of curiosity could you explain your reasoning for this post? Then you should point your ire at Fuyutsuki, who knew she was there by choice this whole time and let Gendo spin his wheels within wheels to accomplish a goal that was always impossible out of sheer vindictive pettiness. I'm just n...

Gendo's and Fuyutsuki's Relationship

So the episode "The Birth of NERV" gives us probably the best insight we ever got into the character of Kozo Fuyutsuki. Up to this point he was just that guy who stood next to Gendo and maybe disagreed with him or questioned him sometimes but then yielded to whatever Gendo wanted. We learn...

I kinda wonder if Fuyutsuki's and Gendo's relationship deserves its own topic? It seems likely it's been done before but I couldn't find much of anything from a quick search.

But surely there must have been more to it than that? If Gendo didn't somehow convince Fuyutsuki over to their side with whatever it was he showed him, then the dear professor could have just said "yep, I'm with you guys" then carried out his original plan of exposing them to the w...

That's your interpretation of Fuyutsuki? I remember the episode with his flashbacks pretty well since it was one of the better episodes in my opinion and Fuyutsuki never disguised anything he felt about Gendo. In fact I was always perplexed by his change of heart since he burst in on Gendo and s...

Everyone wants the apocalypse. Yui, Gendo, SEELE. They all want the world to end and yet they each have their own weird spin on it. I don't know how you can have different "spins" on everyone's soul being merged together but the Eva Wiki seems to think it's different and like I...

Now Yui....there is a character I don't get. ^ This post is certainly representative of a lot of opinions on Eva but then there are people who say no, Yui was the hero. It's all very confusing to a newbie like me since when I went into Eva I had always heard Yui loved Shinji and she was the ...

You don't have to hate Gendo's character to consider him a villain. There are plenty of well-written and interesting bad guys in fiction. Gendo's motives are something most people can relate to and his...impassiveness made him very interesting. It was always hard to tell what he was thin...

I didn't take much note of original dub Rei's voice because I thought "how hard is it to whisper a lot and try not to emote?" Then I saw Rebuild and I realized it wasn't quite so simple and I wasn't being fair to Ms. Winn-Lee. I got nothing against Rebuild Rei's VA as R...

Jurassic Park: Book vs. Movie

So I'm not sure whee to put this since it's about a novel and a film but....well, if it goes somewhere else, my bad. Which did you like more and why? For me, it has to be the original novel version by Michael Crichton. The problem with the movie is it simplifies too many things and so the ce...
