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

I gotta say, these are the kind of progress updates I was looking for. :D Also, the whole thing with the motion capture tech makes me suspect that the fight against the MP-EVAs in Final is gonna look something like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P8GGwgI2vGU Replace pole with spear. :tongue:

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

Soooo does this mean that this film's gonna pick up immediately after the end of the previous film, ala Return Of The King / The Matrix Revolutions?

Re: Should Asuka die in the final film?

It really depends of what Anno has in store. From what I've seen, she seems to be taking over the role that Misato had in EoE; the "rescuer that attempts to get him to man up and take action" person. Now that doesn't mean she's gonna die, but that's just what I've gathered. And for the rec...

Re: Do you think anno regrets making rebuild?

You know, I'm just gonna through this out there, the explanation that 3.0 was made the way it was in order for the audience to be in the same mindset as Shinji I find to be a terrible excuse. That basically means that the narrative was compromised in order to try to force the viewer to feel a certai...

Re: Rei or Asuka?

The Rei / Shinji thing is, as far as I'm concerned, one of the core parts of the Rebuild saga, whereas his relationship with Asuka was one of the cores of the original series. Much of what happens in Rebuild, even in 3.33, revolves around the connection that Rei and Shinji share together. Conversely...

Re: Honda: 3.0+1.0 is being made right now

Just great. Apparently, this film may not even be finished before 2020, if the interview is anything to go by. Seriously, talk about wasting almost a decade of the fanbase's lives.

Re: Did Anno Seek to Undermine Rei with Rebuild?

Again, I don't know. I really enjoyed watching the relationship between Shinji and Rei in the second film, as I saw it as less of a "waifu-fantasy" and more of a simple budding connection between two similar individuals in a dark time, and I also saw the latter as becoming more than just a...

Re: Did Anno Seek to Undermine Rei with Rebuild?

I don't know. For me, I liked Rei because she was a very tragic and sympathetic character, and her supposed creepy traits only made her all the more tragic to me. As a result, I really enjoyed seeing her character develop in the first two Rebuild films. Then Anno drops a bridge on all that and repla...

Did Anno Seek to Undermine Rei with Rebuild?

I posted this in Reddit, but I'd like to know what you guys think. This is just something that I've seen swirling around several message boards and the like. Basically, they theorize that the reason Rei was portrayed as she is in Rebuild 3.0 is because Anno, because he apparently hates both Rei and ...

Re: Anno apologizes for 4th film delay

I take offense to that jab at the Marvel movies. Especially since I find several of them quite memorable. On your note of Eva being great because of where it comes from, while I do agree that it is one of the rare shows that managed to tap even the dimmest basement dwelling otaku (no offense to otak...

Re: Khara specifically hiring animators for next Evangelion work

Yeah, the whole situation really makes me resent Godzilla, if only because it caused it already delayed film to be delayed even more. Heck, I've seen so many other series and franchises grow and change over this half-decade, but RoE has remained static and in the same depressing spot it's been in fo...

Re: How Will Rei be Treated in the Next Film?

Heck, maybe the only way she can return is for Shinji to accept his loss. Like, it would make for a good counter to Gendo. While Gendo tried everything, including committing extremely questionable actions to get Yui back, he failed. Shinji on the other hand, accepted the loss of Rei, and that is wha...

Thanks for your reply jcmoorehead. And I'll just ignore how Reichu described me as. It's interesting that you bring up the game industry in terms of the film's continuous delays so as to justify them. I am an avid gamer and a follower of the game industry as well, which actually contributes to my fe...

Re: How Will Rei be Treated in the Next Film?

Wow, this is an old topic, but I might as well reply. Rei's character now completly represents "Running away from reality" The doll/ the waifu. Giving any substance to her would be the same as giving substance to otaku's fantasies. It just won't happen. There may be a goodbye scene, but it...

Re: Do people still hate Evangelion 3.33?

Something can't be both incest and rishathra? The incest subtext was always Anno's intent, as he is hardly subtle about it in interviews. Odd how many of the same people who seem to be into Rei/Shinji the most are also the most ardent about rationalizing away the incest aspect. Freud would be havin...
