Re: One recurring complaint about EVA I've heard a lot.

To an extent, the exaggerated bleakness of the post-2I world is to highlight the lens in which Shinji views the world. The Angels are often analogies for the personal struggles of our main characters, characterized as monsters in which they must overcome. Ep 3 has the most on-the-nose example of thi...

Re: Do people still hate Evangelion 3.33?

Mari seems to be the very definition of carefree. She takes things in stride, and rolls with the punches.

Re: "We'll treat you very well"

Now it seems like you're looking for reasons to vilify her, and the other cast members as well. Again, the world doesn't revolve around Shinji, and they have their own issues as well. He has a lot of growing up to do, and nobody is going to coddle him. And please ease up on the omnislashing. There's...

Re: "We'll treat you very well"

So the thing you're saying, Sachi, is that the scene shows how Shinji lies to himself and projects his own cynical behavior into the three ladies? Well, I could agree with that, but I don't think Shinji is cynical either. He does what he is told because he's afraid. He's a coward. He doesn't want t...

Re: "We'll treat you very well"

And that's why my feelings about Asuka isn't so positive. It's her attitude towards Shinji that makes me skeptical of her having any goodness in heart or even a shred of care for someone under the same roof as her. So I doubt that she'll ever be nice to Shinji, if she does, then that will be the da...

Re: "We'll treat you very well"

It really is his cynical behavior that is the root of it all. I should have included this in my last post, but his abandonment issues regarding his father are a major factor in all this. In Shinji's eyes, after his mother died, his father wanted nothing to do with him and sent him away, only calling...

Re: Star Wars

Ron Howard has been confirmed to finish directing the film, which I think is a solid choice. He has the chops and the versatility for me to trust that he'll deliver the film the Star Wars story group wants to have made. Again, I don't see a huge reason to freak out about this development. People fre...

Re: "We'll treat you very well"

Here's the actual dialogue: (Rei, Asuka and Shinji inside an empty train - Asuka standing over Shinji) Asuka: If you can't be all mine, then I don't need you! Shinji: Then, be nice to me... Asuka/Misato/Rei: We are nice to you. Shinji: LIARS!! You're all just hiding behind a smil...

Re: Ramiel versus Zeruel

Without knowing the power of their AT Fields relative to each other, the most I suppose we can go on for this fight is strategy. In that case, I believe Ramiel would easily win. While Zeruel relies on brute strength, I don't believe it would get close enough to Ramiel to do any effective damage, who...

Re: Star Wars

The prequels may be poorly executed, but there's plenty good with them, and I enjoy Anakin as a character, especially in the Clone Wars animated series. They add plenty to the lore of the franchise. Besides, I don't see what the big deal here is. The story is pretty much set in stone. The difference...

Re: Star Wars

Meh, I had no expectations for this film to begin with, so this doesn't phase me. So long as the story adds to the lore, I'll probably end up eating it up regardless. A mediocre or even bad Star Wars film is still a Star Wars film, and even Attack of the Clones has it's charms for me (being my least...

Re: The game of Shogi: a view on characters and plot in Rebuild

As for OP, that's a very interesting theory that sheds new light on some of the aspects of rebuild. Although it may be my memory failing me but i thought the 4 spears from 2nd impact were of the longinus type, so where does cassius fit in? It's obscured, but one of the four spears shown in 2nd Impa...

The characters I create are usually made with their tragic end already in mind. :devil: But it is a sad process nonetheless.

Re: The game of Shogi: a view on characters and plot in Rebuild

Gendo's talent is that he knows how people will react and behave. A skilled chess master can predict the flow of the game several turns ahead of time, and will attempt to use their knowledge of the opponent against them in order to lure them into certain moves, allowing themselves to get into an opt...

Re: .hack//G.U. Last Recode (HD remaster coming to PS4)

I never actually finished the G.U. games. I think I just never got my hands on a copy of the third one. I really enjoyed the first two, so I'll definitely be getting this once it hits the states. Thinking about it more and more is getting my hype up. Much cooler concept execution than Sword Art Onli...

Re: The game of Shogi: a view on characters and plot in Rebuild

I don't buy sequel theory, but don't mind the idea of the loop theory. The best result is breaking the cycle, and for Shinji to choose to live in this new world, rather than starting over, which he may be given the option to do. In relation to Shogi, he needs to not make the fourth repetition, but i...

Re: What was Seele's original goal for Fourth Impact? Eva Q

Was it? Wasn't Gendo just going to use Unit 01 to kill Zeruel with the dummy plug before it refused, much to his own surprise? Gendo's goal between 1.0 and 2.0 was to draw Rei and Shinji together so that the bond they would form would eventually awaken Unit-01. This much is made clear. The when and...
