Re: Evangelion Pic Thread 10: The Society for the Appreciation Of The Premium Girl (and her friends)

^ Seeing that Mk.4 like that and given all the weird eva products out there, I'm surprised there isn't an Eva Roomba based on the Mk.4s yet.

Re: Will Anno Try To Top The "Hospital Room Scene"? Can Anything Be As Messed Up?

Well Shinji has shown a certain apathy towards his well being in the past, some examples that come to mind is at the end of 2.0. When he's in the angel shelter during zeruels attack, there's a shot where he still in it alone with the PA system alerting that that shelter isn't safe and should be evac...

Re: Rei or Asuka?

Several scenes originally from episodes 3 and 4 that imply he does it to feel needed are in 1.0 as well (like when Misato scolds him after coming back). To be honest i've only seen 1.0 a couple of times, so i'll take your word for it and stand corrected. This is a matter of perspective I guess, I d...

Re: Rebuild outside of Evageeks: Many reactions

I think something to remember is that sites such as EVGks are as insular as any other fan sites of different fictional works, it's a place where things are discussed and analyzed, meaning that you arrive at a certain understanding of it that you wouldn't get from more casual places or discussions.

Re: Will Anno Try To Top The "Hospital Room Scene"? Can Anything Be As Messed Up?

Well i can think of one way to one up it, an attempted suicide scene. Something like a minute long (or longer) scene with no music and just muffled sound effects as Shinji goes through the motions of his attempt. That would convey a certain state of mind and be shocking enough for an audience that i...

Re: Rei or Asuka?

He is still piloting just to feel needed, he has clearly still a hard time truly connecting with people, and 3.0 points out how he has a huge problem with change (you'd rather live in a merciless void of a world). He'll also have to get over the fact that he is partly responsible for the end of the...

Re: Rei or Asuka?

On topic I'd day it's probably Asuka by default no? The whole "if it's a boy Shinji if a girl Rei" plus the whole mother clone thing makes Rei way WAY too incesty. Fuyutsuki tells Shinji in Q that Rei is a replica of Yui from the "data" that was all remaining of her; so actually ...

Re: You Can Start Again

Great chapter, that twist that cliffhanger :devil: Anyway Looks like things are going to pick up soon as NErv looks to be gearing up to something. Shinji continues to be a rather good mentor when it comes to piloting and i feel some foreshadowing from Asukas "just live your life" line as S...

Re: Rewatching the Rebuilds, and my thoughts

-There's some genuinely great shots that help to convey particular moods (the far-off shot of Rei and Gendo eating dinner is appropriately distant, I like the closeness used in the various shots when Shinji and Asuka share the same bed). This sounds silly, but think of it this way: if one minor asp...

Re: Ritsuko and Asuka as Mirror Images

At the peril of coming off as an a-hole, i thought this was pretty obvious, a lot of the major characters in NGE share the same building blocks. Shinji has dad and mom issues Asuka has mom issues Misato has dad issues Ritsuko has mom issues Gendo has dead wife issues Said issues manifested in differ...

It's what literally happened at the end of 3.0, after she opened up his entry plug one of the first things she does is mention how he didn't come to her aid.

Re: So was Asuka just mad at Shinji in Q?

^ A lot of Shinjis action boil down to bad choices with good intentions. Sounds interesting, do tell :) It's fairly simple, It was stated at the beginning of the movie that Kaji had been away for 2 years without making contact, so it'd be hard for him to have someone grow the watermelons in secret f...

Re: So was Asuka just mad at Shinji in Q?

Asuka being angry with Shinji for the state of the world doesn't make a lot of sense since there's plenty of evidence that a lot more happened after he got absorbed into unit-1 (11th and 12th angels, 12th angel-possessed mark-6 making contact with Lillith and proper 3rd impact), and while the Bardie...

Re: Sakura Nagashi Theory - Rebuild & A Missing Character

I'm not a believer of the sequel theory so i'm not sure about a multi-verse/reality separated Shinji and Asuka, but i could see a uniquely NTE time loop being a thing, given some of Kaworus more cryptic lines. As far as the songs are concerned, i think Sakura Nagashi could be perspective from 3 pote...

Re: If Mari and Asuka are/were Gay. . .

Personally i don't see it, far too little interaction to make assumptions. That being said though, this reminds me of one of my biggest pet peeves i have when it comes to shipping. That character X spends time with character Y (whether by choice or not) then that means they're into each other, and i...

Re: Introduction, Toxicity of AsuShin and other things

The way i see it is that it's not Asushin that's toxic, but Shinji and Asuka as individuals are. The same reasons that they couldn't work together would apply to anyone else, Shinji would be passive and pull away if things got rough, Asuka would push them away. Their personalities were both defined ...

Re: Key of Nebuchadnezzer Speculation

My personal fanwank regarding nebbz key is that it was what Seele used to shed their mortal bodies and is also the key ( :w00t: punny) to HIP in the NTE. It's what would allow humans to transcend and evolve beyond their humany selves. It's also why the FoI's were FoI in the first place, without the ...

Re: Rebuild is shallow tangent

One thing to keep in mind is that 3.0 is heavily heavily biased towards Shinji's POV. So the sudden distinct apparent differences in characters (mainly Asuka and Misato) are due to that restrictive perspective. We don't know much of what happened between 2.0 and 3.0 nor do we know what happened afte...

Here's an image, not mine, on the subject: https://i.imgur.com/uON8u9Y.jpg The issue with using similar scenes and shots is that there really is no way to ...
