It honestly wouldn't surprise me if Shinji was meant to be seen as evil, in a sort of cautionary tale setup (although as one of the people who thinks he was much worse in EoE, this leaves kind of a bad taste in my mouth). To me though, even with the random magic powers, there seemed to b...

Re: Not sure about that... B/

Comic removed - Staff The funny thing is that the position expressed in this comic actually appears to be a common political talking point. Japan was nuked into cuteness culture. I do think it's insane to worship imperial Japan, and if that's what Anno was doing, it's shameful. However,...

And what about people who willingly give their lives? What benefit do they get when they sacrifice themselves to help others? Think about everyone who ran into the towers on 9/11: none of them wanted to die, but they all knew it was a possibility, and they went into the towers anyway. And a lot of ...

I'm not the biggest fan of the new movies, but I agree with people that the 14 years were skipped for a reason. It would largely just be the daily routine of WILLE fighting against NERV and maintaining its presence as a fragment of remaining humanity. This sounds really interesting at first, but...

Re: Not sure about that... B/

He's actually espousing a fascist principle there, especially the traditionalist aspect described by Eco. On top of that given his own age he's basically saying that pre WWII Imperial Japan had its shit together. It would be the equivalent of an Italian saying that the generation that grew ...

Because it's weird if Asuka'd be unpleasant to me and not Hikari. And the people Asuka's mean to have not been punching people out. How do you know Asuka would be unpleasant to you? Also, while I tend to disagree with the idea that everyone Asuka was abrasive to deserved it (except ...

Anno loves Tokatsu so there's no reason that he wouldn't make one. Besides, that would be like the type of "April Fools" prank that Squidward played on Spongebob, for no real reason. The movie will come out, and will likely be one of the better ones, although also likely not the be...

What always amazes me is that people find the need to compare Sonic Adventure 1 and 2 with Sonic 06 and find them to be of similar quality. The games had some problems, but it actually felt like Sonic transitioned pretty well to the 3D world. And the Chao garden was amazing. Sonic 06 had the music g...

Honestly, even if a review is negative, that doesn't necessarily mean it's unfair. The only issue I have is that some people look at the wrong set of criteria when reviewing something. As much as people like to go on about elements such as the Lance of Longinus, the FAR, etc., what they don&...

In a massive twist, he is not remaking The Birds at all, rather he is referring to the fragile, bird-like nature of the human spirit. Billed by another name for the shock-factor, this is actually Michael Bay's revision of Evangelion. In all seriousness, I'm imagining something like Birdemic ...

I know you've been talking about this seriously, but as much as I've complained about Rebuild, I don't think Anno would put in a scene like that. Not only did he say earlier that he's excising many of the sexual elements, but I don't think a scene of Shinji masturbating to Asuka ...
