After Bardiel, Asuka is fine and still has her eye. After Mass Produced Eva appear in 3.0, Asuka loses her left eye, gets her right arm messed up, gets her breast/stomach eaten at, her classic suit gets messed up, etc. http://img816.imageshack.us/img816/7936/higuchi3.jpg Here's a version of the...

She already sought the comfort of a masculine presence in Shinji's bed. If she becomes any less snobbish, she'll start making out with hobos. Seriously, eww.

That's dodging the question... so let me ask this: Why did Anno decide not to have the lights fall? It was not worth the animation, for such a "small plot point"? Or because it was a badly scripted scene originally to begin with that only conflicted with later scenes/plot points, and ...

But it's not small talk in the grander scheme of things. The idea of sexual exclusivity strengthens the concept of Misato being in love with Kaji (something that can't be verified through logical analysis but is glaringly obvious otherwise if you consider the way their relationship was d...

In the realm of needles nitpicking, the only meaning we could gleam from the sentence is that Misato used to smoke regularly at some point in time, but now only does so after sex, and Kaji is her only sexual partner who witnessed this. This does not preclude that she had sex on other occasions when ...

Okay, fine. Lets go through a quote from Episode 25 of NGE, a quote which deals with the idea of the untouchable inner self (the core of the soul, if you prefer) versus the identity gained through interaction with others. The third character Ayanami Rei, in her case, Rei: Who am I? Rei: Ayan...

I think we veered into a tangent that's too far from the intentions of the thread. Maybe someday i'll get back on Jornophelanthas regarding what i think Eva's model is for a person and the development of a person, but for now... If you're telling me that you can't get to know a p...

The Jung-ian moral of Evangelion is that people create their own identities through their dealings with others . (....) The main point where I disagree with you is that I believe that (at least in Evangelion) IDENTITY is created for 100% through social means, while you appear to bel...

So I disagree that Shinji "refuses to deal with the reality of Rei". In fact, I even argue that Shinji is the only one who actually sees the reality of Rei . While it's certainly true that Shinji can't refuse something he doesn't really grasp, it's also important to note t...

That would give the "Father" line from 2.0 some substance. I picked Yui because i wanted to come up with a way of bringing her into the story in a manner that would be suprising to those who have already seen NGE. Also, to me she's just more suited for this whole "touched by the d...

On a subject related to all caps, Wrath of Khan is overrated. The only reason that film is in any way great is because Ricardo Montalban can out-overact Shatner. And how! Which reminds me, how the hell did the crew of the Reliant manage to not notice that one of the planets of the system is missing...

Also this "He only saved Rei for his own self-gratification" makes by blood boil. By that logic, anything anyone ever does would be for self-gratification. After all, even doing the right thing even if it causes you pain gives you the positive feeling of having done something right becaus...

Going back to an earlier point of this thread, it seems to me that there are two main schools of thought with regards to making sense of Kaworu's lines: the "they met before" camp and the "sequel" faction. Either these or bust. Well, allow me to fanwank not one, but two excit...

Don't you think that there's some contradiction between this mental state and his decision? I just can't help thinking that at least partially he overcame his "hate" towards the world and his phrase expressed mainly a lack of interest in anything else at the moment. No, since ...

Well, he was seething for various reasons so you should not mix it all up into just "inarticulate emotions". He went over there single-mindedly with the sole purpose of saving Rei. You should consider his emotion just before he decided to fight -- he was slumping and held no hope or expec...

I think this is going beyond what is depicted in the movie. There is unfiltered passion and pure emtion, but only in his wish to rescue Rei. As for the world I believe he just ignored it, meaning he was committed to get Rei out of the trap and he wanted to be focus on that and only that. Shinji spe...

Personally, i don't find any of the Trek movies to be all that good. If i take II. and III. together, as one narrative unit (they kinda are) than this package is probably the best thing to have come out of the franchise's ventures on the big screen. Past that, besides V., all the old...
