I don't think the good guys ever stood a chance. The only reason Asuka was able to do such a number on the MP Evas was because they let her, I mean they could've just stayed in the air waiting for her batteries to run out but they decided to toy with her instead. Eva-01 has special powers so...

That's perfectly healthy. Rewatching movies is actually kind of a bad habit, looking at something for too long will only reveal the illusion.

The '95 movie and SAC are about as close to the original. As for the alleged whitewashing, I don't care. What do you expect? It's an American adaptation. I think a story like Ghost in the Shell's could be remade to take place in just about any country, it's not even that clear wh...

I recently finished the four part OVA Final Fantasy Legend of the Crystals aka just Final Fantasy. Pretty solid adventure series for the most part. The story cookie cutter (about what you'd expect since it's based on a video game) but that's largely made up for by the beautiful a...

Rebuild doesn’t have the major studio backing that Metropolis or Innocence had. Also, the only real difference between the CGI renderings is that NTE’s is cel-shaded, while the others aren’t, making their use more prominent in the series as opposed trying to mingle in with the rest of the visual st...

So and so. In scenes where the camera moving through an environment, like the conveyor belts in 1.11, it looks pretty decent, sahaquiel looked pretty sweet too. Not a fan of most of the other stuff though, I hate when they use it for things like cars and background extras, worse yet, the Evas themse...

Jet Alone didn't need an AT field to walk around with it's flimsy ass legs.
The Evas are operating under the same kind of laws as any other giant monster or robot that has ever appeared on the screen, anything else just overcomplicates things. And yes, the MP Evas were legit flying.

^The Swedish guy was acquitted of all his charges by the supreme court two years later. While that was going on I distinctly remember the media being mostly supportive of the guy, interestingly enough.

Mind control. Everything else, the levers, the targeting headset, is there just to make the act of piloting more dramatic and visually interesting. I can't read Japanese so I don't know this for sure, but some of the early designs in the Concept Design Works art book show what appears to be ...

With that kind of ending Evangelion would've been another forgotten anime by now. Also don't forget the part where the opening theme starts playing as Shinji is kicking the MP Eva's asses. Of course he has to deliver an awkward speech while he's at it which would end with him proclai...

I think that would have been a little heavy handed for Gantz, I don't think Oku ever aspired to make a statement on the human race. Since the story didn't seem to be building up towards anything in particular, the eighties video game -style ending was probably the most appropriate way to get...

Worst case scenario would be something along the lines of the manga ending. I'm not talking about the timeloop aspect either, I just don't want to see the world returning back to normal (read: present day Japan) with Shinji going back to school, Asuka marrying and having children. Th...

I read part of Bokurano a few years back and it didn't really work for me. I mean the world was so shitty that it got ridiculous, it wasn't even depressing, it was pure nihilism. After a while I just couldn't give a damn anymore.
That's how I remember it anyway.

It does seem quite pricey, but I'm not gonna complain. Rumors have it that The Phantom Pain won't be out until late 2015, possibly even 2016. That's just a little too long to wait, so I'll gladly drop twenty bucks for an appetizer.
Yeah, I'm very excited for this game.

Lilith was never really left-field, especially since the missing Second Angel was always there in the numbering. It's just that the question "Who or what is that second Angel?" never got answered until 24. And in a way, Rei is the Second Angel, being the vessel of Lilith's soul. I...

It's heavily suggestive, but not ironclad -- what if the Kaworu in that draft of the story simply didn't have the same capacity he did in the final draft to recognize Lilith correctly? Maybe at that time the thinking was that they should save the revelation for the episode after that. After...
