Re: Netflix Release General Discussion

Seems like Netflix and/or VSI have been somewhat lax on their end. I doubt Dan or Khara made the decision not to translate most of the on-screen text, for instance. It is probably also their fault that Fly Me To The Moon has not been licenced, supposedly it only cost 1000 dollars... per yer. I shoul...

Re: Sadamoto fighting on Twitter, denying war crimes and discriminating Koreans, possibly falling out with Khara

Alright, I admit this thread is super messy, I knew what you mentioned (edited it just before seeing your reply). As for Touji et al... maybe?

What if they got Yamashita to do it? Maybe Sadamoto just did it years in advance?

Sadamoto fighting on Twitter, denying war crimes and discriminating Koreans, possibly falling out with Khara

So we spent most of the day discussing this on the EGF Discord. Perhaps it warrants some discussion here as well. Sadamoto calls the statue of peace, a remembrance of Japanese war crimes a "vulgar/dirty girl" (https://mainichi.jp/english/articles/20190803/p2a/00m/0na/005000c)) and says Kor...

Re: Netflix English Dub Discussion

Wouldn't surprise me. The VAs probably watched Eva with the ADV dub so it's natural they'd be influenced by it. Some people pointed out McKeon seems to be reproducing some of Grant's mannerisms in her Asuka rendition.

Re: [Merch] Evangelion book review blog

Quite a cute book and quite cute clothes. I wonder if maybe one day Khara might release some Eva merch officially on the West. Considering they are apparently releasing an English version of that new mobile game, maybe they are making their merch business more internationalized. If anything, while E...

Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media

Quick takeaway: Asuka is no longer holding Shinji's wrists. He's following her and Rei himself. He's getting better, though he's still slouching. Some scenes are still going to be with the kids walking the red ruins. UYCTM/Peaceful Times storyboards might come into play. Shinji looks at his SDAT. He...

I have to wonder if Kaji ever straight up told her "I love you." The L Bomb is kind of a big thing in Eva.

Re: Netflix English Dub Discussion

So Ogata agrees with the "like" change as she feels it's closer to the original and how she interprets it. She even contrasts this with Sailor Moon which she thinks should be "love", because "nuance is difficult". https://comicbook.com/anime/amp/2019/07/17/neon-genesis-...

Re: Netflix Release General Discussion

Were we really expecting that to happen? Even if a "dedicated" anime company like Crunchyroll or Funi released it with heavy marketing (which Evangelion didn't have) and tons of hype, it would still not just bring in tons and tons of new fans. Eva, in the West, is a cult classic anime, and...

Re: Avant1 Ver0706 Kaworu Tangent

Ishida is even asked if piloting Eva 13 is like a love scene (amazing how interviewers for Kaworu-related interviews can't help themselves) and just outright says "I don't think I can make that interpretation. You'll have to ask the director." Very professional of him, which is more than I...

Re: Avant1 Ver0706 Kaworu Tangent

I remember something about how Ishida said something more like "iterations" in the Japanese and he was talking about it in a meta sense instead of confirming any theory. I will say though, I find the "only person who treats Shinji well" argument to be almost insulting when we hav...

Re: Analysis: Um, Kaworu Is Good Actually

I'm unable to write more right now but you might be interested in the following two threads. I believe Kaworu is being revised into a much darker and less neutral version of his character as a thematic response to the worship he received from part of the fanbase, much like Rei and part of Eva in gen...

Re: Avant1 Ver0706 Kaworu Tangent

We aren't too sure yet, but many details indicate that pulling the Spears as he expected them to be would start Instrumentality in his/Seele's version of it, which of course was not Gendo's. He changed then to thwart Seele's plans and to get rid of "Seele's Boy", laying a trap for him as h...

Re: Avant1 Ver0706 Kaworu Tangent

He never said they would fix the world, just that it could be changed again. Kaworu's ultimate goal seems to be Instrumentality, not fixing the world. I could be wrong but I'm also pretty sure Kaworu never said they are his last hope, but rather it's Shinji that says that to Asuka. She asks him if h...

Re: Avant1 Ver0706 Kaworu Tangent

The fact that he's *presented* as flawless to the audience and by extension Shinji is just another example of Eva contrasting Shinji's limited perspective with the larger reality, and trying to naif a point that he's often simply wrong. Shinji latches on to Kaworu to very unreality degrees and depos...

Re: Avant1 Ver0706 Kaworu Tangent

NGE Kaworu was more neutral, though we should remember that he was still okay with meeting Shinji to satiate his own curiosity even though he knew he would have to kill him or be killed by him within a day, which eventually happened. He hurts Shinji not out of malice, but, yeah, innocence. This does...
