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

I spoke to my Japanese friend about the translation of the post Khara gave for its poster and "anti" and she said it was very bizarre and deliberately badly translated. She thinks that Anti is actually standing in for a kind of opposition. "You can (Not) Oppose" or "You can ...

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

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8yHcPUOolf2SWxaaDV1b1VNYUk/view?usp=sharing I took a photograph someone took of the finished poster and fixed it up a bit in Photoshop. This is theoretically what the finished version looks like in Hi-Rez. I wasn't able to to use the IMG coding--so a link will have...

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

"反" being translated as "Anti" is kinda' strange. I think this is a puzzle. In the English version from Khara there are two particular phrases capitalized. "THE END" and "NOT ANTI." "NOT ANTI" of course evokes "You can (NOT)". If that's the...

Glad to hear it; I really enjoy you videos, man.


And thank you! <3 I hope this podcast can get around, because I do think it's important to the discourse of NGE's dub.

His normal voice sounds like a young Mark Hammil. That Kermit the Frog impression was spot on. What's his impression John Swazey, the VA who replaced him in EOE and the Rebuild Films? Also, glad youre here with some quality content. Do you need his permish to put this on youtube? Yeah... Since we f...

GoatJesus Interviews Tristan MacAvery (Gendo's Dub Actor NGE)

Hey guys, So a while back (I think in late 2015) I recorded an interview with Tristan MacAvery. And while there was no clear answer on whether or not we should publish it, it's been enough time and I feel as though I owe it to this community to upload this interview. In it, he goes over the dub proc...

So yeah. Can you articulate why you think that exactly? I think she screams in arch with just enough texture and energy to sound appealing/convincing. How did you come to that conclusion?

Re: Spike Spencer's Acting in Evangelion 3.33

Goat, why do you hate Spike so much? How can I hate someone I don't know personally? I just said i wasn't thrilled by his performance in 3.33. xD Or for that matter, any of NTE. I've always disliked Megumi Ogata as Shinji's VA. Do adolescent Japanese boys normally sound like 10 year old girls? This...

Spike Spencer's Acting in Evangelion 3.33

OK. So I got my hands on an American release of 3.33 not too long ago. I heard they were redoing the performances from the theatrical dub (I actually know this to be a fact due to some comparisons with camrips.) However, I was slightly disappointed with Spike as Shinji in this film--especially since...

Re: Mistranslations in Evangelion

Wait a minute... In reference to "this 'real world'," Shinji is discussing a reality in which he doesn't pilot the Eva. So when Shinji mentions his acceptance of reality towards the end, is he referring to the reality in which he isn't an Eva pilot? Because that's not the real world that'...

Re: Mistranslations in Evangelion

The LTP covers all the on-air scripts as published in EVANGELION ORIGINAL. Unsurprisingly, that means it does not have the DC material, for which I've only seen the ADV Platinum transcriptions. As a translation, the LTP has generally been considered un-nuanced -- but that is because it is a literal...

Re: Mistranslations in Evangelion

"嫌い" (kirai) is flat out hate. In fact, it's such a strong word, people would never use it in normal conversation. The Kanji is pure negativity, it shows up in words as 嫌 (iya) detestable, 嫌らしい (iyarashii) disgusting; filthy; repulsive; detestable; unpleasant; disagreeable, lewd; lascivio...

Re: Mistranslations in Evangelion

For the second one, bochan_bird's translation retains the impersonal stance of the actual words spoken and from which point we can argue the nuance between implicit "for thee" vs "for you in the role of everyman". I do remember, when I was transferring that translation to pre-ex...

Well, tbh--I didn't even know this existed. Plus we had a *slightly* more accurate approach. It's better to get this sort of out to the public anyway.

Re: YouTube Videos

With the second one I think it's less critical since there's enough surrounding context that, no matter the translation of that line, any reasonable reading of the show will tell us that a hopeful message was intended (see all the business with Rei and Kaworu, Shinji's discussion with Yui, etc).

Re: YouTube Videos

This guy gets it. The first one is a pretty serious blow to the concurrency debate, as there's no reason to think Shinji would embrace Instrumentality given a proper translation of that line. The second is a more elegant translation than what we have, but I don't think it's a game-changer in terms ...
