Re: Why didn't Mari and Sakura blame Shinji for NTI?

Well Sakura is relatively young, so her knowledge may not be as expansive as Maris'. She knows about N3i and Shunjis role in it so while she treats him well there's some apprehension there as well. Though not enough to outright condemn him. Mari has always struck me as a glass half full type person,...

Re: Is Shikinami inspired by Moyoco?

I suppose it's possible, he has used aspects of himself for his characters before, with marriage and a new perspective from and of his partner i could see it happening.

Re: The most disturbing moment in Evangelion

For me from NGE its GNR, from its initial black sclera and tiny red eyes to the final shot of its giant decapitated head on the horizon, the whole thing is unnerving and creepy. From NTE it's Gendos' Rei head collection, i mean just why did he keep em?

Re: Do people still hate Evangelion 3.33?

It's kinda all in this exchange: Shinji: "But I knew nothing about this, I was just trying to save Ayanami! I had nothing to do with this!" Kaworu: "That may well be but that's not how the Lillim see it" This reminds me of something that's been bugging me for a while. How inform...

Re: Do people still hate Evangelion 3.33?

^ Why though? their actions were cold and a little cruel but not enough to justify a physical consequence to themselves. Asuka lost her eva and Misato temporarily lost the use of unit-2/8, isn't that enough physical consequence?

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

This discussion brings up something interesting, if a fictional work made by and for a Japanese society can't be completely 'got' by a western perspective, does the opposite apply as well. For example a western perspective on prejudice like Zootopia , would the core message of that film not resonate...

Re: Do people still hate Evangelion 3.33?

In a way I'd say Misato and Asuka already received the consequences of their actions in 3,0, by alienating Shinji it allowed Gendo to easily sway him and further his goals, the complete opposite of what Willie would want. That's "punishment' enough, the knowledge that in an indirect way they he...

Re: How Evangelion Gets Away With Being Terrible

While there are criticisms to be made of the rebuilds, the video uses some rather shallow and easily debunked arguments, I mean as Gendo'sPapa said the video completely ignored 3.0 and how that movie destroys one of the main premises of the video in NGE escapism=bad NTE escapism=good.

^ Well he received conflicting information for the short time he was with em, he's told 14 years have passed then Asuka shows up looking the same. He's told Rei is gone but then is given his SDAT that Rei had in her possession. When the mark-9 shows up looking like unit-00 and hearing Reis' voice te...

Re: How misunderstood is Asuka?

Additionally, I'm pretty sure it's called the curse of Eva, because it is meant to be some sort of meta commentary about how people never grow out of Eva. I'm really looking forward to a 3.0 Complete Collection Book, where we will hopefully find answers what the exact thought process was behind thi...

Re: You Can Start Again

Don't really read much eva ff, just a few post EoE or post 3.0 stuff. Yours though, has been a good enjoyable read. I thought the suicide attempt was well done, Shinji has always been a fish out of water type character, especially in 3.0 and i liked that you kept that up in your fic. In the previous...

Re: So who here is into Samurai Jack?

I must admit the finale gave me feels. I kinda knew it was coming but still, seeing Ashi disappear and Jack crying was tough to watch. Worse when you consider all the people he met in the future will likely also not exist anymore. Damn, 13 years and it's finally over, bittersweet ending and all it w...

Re: Should Asuka die in the final film?

^ Probably confine him again and Asuka might chew him out for doing dumb stuff, but they'll likely explain everything to him as they were starting to before NERV came a knocking. Asuka i think is acting similarly to Misato, outwards she acts harsh but still having a soft spot for Shinji. That entry ...

Re: Should Asuka die in the final film?

Like, from the beginning EVA was this show about a cvilization so pushed to the brink that they have to resort to child soldiers, a "harsh & pragmatic world where feeling seems to have no place" - in a way Q is simply a more extreme version of that. That's not entirely accurate though...

Re: Stuff that you would like to see in 3+1

^ If i'm thinking of the right scene, isn't that because the mark 04s were being pulled from their protective "cocoon" and that's why it looked like dozens of individual hexagonal tiles?? So my guess it was intentional to show them being pulled out.

Re: Stuff that you would like to see in 3+1

One thing i don't want to see about Shinji finding hope is that it isn't an impersonal altruistic reason, like finding that humanity isn't as screwed as he originally thought. It would seem too messianic for the kind of character Shinji is. His reasons for piloting were always a little selfish, want...

Re: Stuff that you would like to see in 3+1

They did treat him poorly though, granted Misato had excuses being the captain of the Wunder and leader of WILLIE so she had responsibilities towards that. In the end though her treatment of him had pros and cons but with her intentions being good. Asuka though, during the briefing what the hell was...
