Re: how old was the Sub-Commander of Nerv?

It's 9-Apr-57 - my recollection was off by one in the month Out of curiosity, what was your reference for that? I don't recall which original site I got the date from (it may have been from some FAQ such as the one at http://kaworu.bishounen.nu/isite-cache/filer/69/eva_faq.txt ), bu...

Somehow I didn't find this too hard to imagine... :lol: Granted, this must be a very frustrating method of birth control. Ovulation tends to be one of those times when women transform into slobbering, randy beasts. By observation, also providing subtle cues to males in their proximity that affe...

On the other hand, everything about NERV suggests the use of technology to speed up something that mainstream Kabbalists (or the psychologists influenced by them) thought of as an essentially spiritual process--one to be achieved through meditation, prayer, correct living, etc. I agree - th...

Re: how old was the Sub-Commander of Nerv?

I'm making another attempt to write a fanfic but i need to know Fuyutski's age first. Its a crossover between EVA and Stargate SG-1 if you wanted to know. His birthdate is something like 9-May-57 (maybe the 19th; certainly spring '57). That makes him just a few months older than...

The theme is suffering isn't something us humans must put up with but rather its part of what defines us and defines our world. I'm not one for looking for allegorical significance, but I think it is something more than just another expression of the all too common "gritty pragmatist&q...

Or one of those deep-sea fish who end up as genitalia grafted onto their mate. Ahh. The Angler fish, if memory serves. And other species, as well, I believe. Plus, Mr Tines, may I ask what inspires you to refer to the music "Komm, Süßer Tod" as cheery? Because the music sounds jaunty an...

More chances to over-analyse (ho ho)

In another thread So... if you were pregnant when you go splat, do you reembody with or without your unborn child(ren)? which led me to thinking: If as is tacitly assumed, lower life forms re-embodied instinctively, but the more self-conscious an organism the greater the effort of volition -...

Japanese tends not to specify plurals. Todays fun fact. I guess I am going to have to take the sad otaku's step of actually trying to learn a bit more of the language than just learning fragments by context. *sigh* So... if you were pregnant when you go splat, do you reembody with or without yo...

Re: Post-Modernism in Eva

I've invoked the spirit of post-modernism when trying to contrast the text, which is what we all have and share, and all the various trickles of "might have been" information from abandoned alternatives.

Furthermore, morning sickness is a symptom of pregnancy that only starts to show up by 7-8 weeks. Do the math :roll: The final scene appears to be several weeks, if not months after the main events (rust on the cross). For Asuka and Shinji to have "done the dirty deed" makes utter...

The music in Eva seems to be judged to cause maximum effect like that; just as the cheery melody of Komm, Süßer Tod plays during the warped kitchen flashback. KST actually only starts once Shinji begins strangling Asuka. <pedant>The strangulation is part of the kitchen scene, thus the music is pl...

Also in 22' when Asuka tries to call Kaji. I bet there are more. Ep 15 when she phones Kaji and leaves a voicemail intended to bring him running. Ep 22 Misato phoning in while driving back to NERV (not that doing so would make her driving any worse). As far as putting stuff on phones - ...

Something with that much surface area is bound to lose quite a bit of energy while passing through the atmosphere, wouldn't it? Actually it would be quite a small fraction (the significant part of the atmosphere is not very tall; and terminal velocity increases linearly with size); but ...
