Re: Official "Hello/Goodbye" Thread!

Yo. How's everyone doing? I got married and moved to New York this summer. Considering forcing my wife to watch the original series with me (she's not an anime fan :facepalm: ). Ended up checking in to see if there's any news on Final. Also there's a commentary project? I recall trying to do that wi...

Uh...nothing says it was the exact same process. The Adam embryo is in storage, samples can be taken and grown up. Minus this being way lame compared to unit-01. Plus if you can grow Evas in tubes from a sample of DNA/PWM, that kind of undercuts the coolness of Unit-01's origin. But I accept th...

So about that whole 'Evas come from Adam' thing....

So there's that image of unit-01 being created from Lilith, and this explains a lot of things. For example, it ties up a lot of loose ends about Rei and Yui, such as how Rei would come from the failed Yui-salvage operation ending up with Lilith's soul. However, it also implies that the other...

Its more tragic that way. We don't necessarily know how Kensuke would react to being a pilot. We don't really know how Touji would have handled it either considering how short his tenure was. Kensuke, for one, seems to have a clearer grasp of the purpose and necessity of evangelions (pro...

that would imply there's some tiny little "angels" sitting inside the core piloting the big angels. But as long as you're talking about waffy ideas with no point, then sure, its interesting. I mean, if angels were just human sized other versions of humans, then whence came the gian...

For a while it seemed like it was trying to overshadow Gundam, then I learned the Evas are human, so it began to look like some " Sie sind das essen, und wir sind die jager! ". Now, it looks like Paranoia Agent, the Matrix and some other crazy psychological work with some nightmare fuel a...

While many angels wear their cores on their sleeves, not all of them do. Gaghiel's core isn't seen until it opens its mouth. IIRC we don't see Sandalphon's. Ramiel's isn't seen until rebuild. Iruel doesn't seem to have a core at all, unless it later manifests one after ta...

Excellent post ssguy! ^_^ Yea, it's true what you say in your post, unfortunately some mainstream fans (98% of them) thinks different, they want crazy action with easy-to-follow plot that can be understood easily for the 1st time you see it and characters that must be typical shounen he...

LOVE IT.

Also, I wouldn't mind seeing Anno doing something original.

Slothen: I think your analysis of Soryu is spot on (not just saying that, as I think very few people actually get her), but I think it's a mistake to say she and Shikinami share the same spirit. As far as I can tell Shikinami was never as broken as Soryu was, and I'm not convinced h...

Read up the last 10 20 pages or so. I'll keep it brief. I disagree with Kendrix's notion that Asuka absolutely hates/loathes Shinji. Kicking someone when they're down (literally and metaphorically) was the example, and to me that's something people do all the time to those th...
