Re: Which anime of today will be considered future classics?

This may or may not be recent enough, but I nominate Durarara!!. It's a beautiful mix of urban fantasy and existentialism. It also does a pretty good job of maintaining a huge number of plot threads that all manage to intersect in a really tidy way. Quite nice...

Code Geass

I noticed that a thread has not yet been posted for this decently popular (and, IMHO, quite good) anime. For various reasons, I think it might appeal to a good-sized portion of the NGE fanbase. For those Eva-fans who haven't seen it, it's a really good story of an underground resistance movement, he...

Re: Was Lilin Evolution Artificially Guided?

Because what with rebuilding civilization after the damage caused by second impact they didn't have the horrendous resources required to locate a dozen or so eggs of unknown size and appearance anywhere in the world or even in near space? How about a little practicality here? This is basically how ...

Re: Full Metal Panic.

That's because sosuke is meant to be an expy of the character in his Avatar. I'm not joking the author pretty much confirmed it. Ah. Well, that explains that, thanks! By the way, I just finished Second Raid. Now, in the interest of not spoiling anything for those who (like myself, until very recent...

@DarkBluePhoenix

I just have to say, I assumed your avatar was Sousuke. Now that I see in your signature that it's not, I still don't believe how much it looks like him. Uncanny :).

Re: Hebrew Spelling of Angels' Names? (Hebrew-Romaji inconsistencies)

no longer with us Interesting choice of words, there. Well, ok. I guess I'll see if anyone can give a source here or on reddit, and if not, out they go. Thanks! EDIT: Apparently, in the Commentary of Evil on DR, they call Zeruel "Zuriel". I assume that was an error, though, because it is ...

Hebrew Spelling of Angels' Names? (Hebrew-Romaji inconsistencies)

Hi. I was wondering: The Angels Sachiel, Zeruel, and Ireul: Their Hebrew names given in their wiki articles don't match their Romaji names. Sachiel's Hebrew name is זכיאל. So, it should be pronounced Zachiel. Zeruel's is זוריאל. So, it should be pronounced Zuriel. Ireul's is ירואל. So, it should be ...

Re: Netflix's Death Note Live Action Adaptation

The show never tells you to root for him. On the contrary: it shows you how sadistic, evil, manipulative, and uncaring of a guy he is throughout the entire show. And when he thrusts out his whole "new-world" thesis at the end of the show, he is not in any way validated for it. He gets cal...

Re: Who is the EVA character you feel most sorry for?

My assumption that Gendo was using Rei sexually came from Ritsuko's dialogue in episode 22 about Gendo choosing Rei over her, but looking back at those scenes, now with the theory about Seele having Ritsuko raped in my mind, the meaning has certainly changed in my mind. Still, it wouldn't surprise ...

Re: Was Lilin Evolution Artificially Guided?

I think the proper word here is "sapience"; and even then that may not be exactly right. Ah, it probably would be a better word. Correct me if I'm wrong though, is there any evidence of any pre-homo sapient creatures? (I suppose neanderthals might count, but...) When you say the "FAR...

Ah, but what if she gives birth to a race of beings that are gods like her and not pesky little ape-demons? What then ? :devil: You're thinking about 'Attack on Apostolo', aren't you, Reichu? https://www.reddit.com/r/evangelion/comments/6n79bk/attack_on_apostolo_a_reichu_treatment/

Hardly "doomed". I can't think of a single thing that would prevent her from making more life. It's kind of what her body was designed for. Well, yes, but she would still have to wait until she lands on a life-friendly planet, right? And who knows how long that could take... though I do s...

Was Lilin Evolution Artificially Guided?

Hi! Just to introduce myself, I watched the series and EoE in April, and, since then, have been turning the show in my head over and over again. So, I was hoping I could share some of my thoughts with you folks, and see how my senpai-tachi feel about them. I post most of these on reddit, but I thoug...

Re: Who is the EVA character you feel most sorry for?

I know that Yui is logically worse off, but, as she (in Lilin form) is only present in flashbacks, I never really connected to her as a person. That's slowly changing, but I always feel most sorry for Rei. She's definitely not my favorite character (Kaworu), but I always feel really sad when I think...
