What's the current best torrent to use? When I tried a bunch of months back, I was stuck on 0 peers and no one showed up even after I waited for weeks.

Well, there were some rumors about him having Asuka pull an Ophelia, but I don't trust them - Asuka feels like the sort of character that you might wildly bang on with a hammer, but don't kill permanently. That would just ruin something. Rumors? Just the Kaibunsho said that, I thought? (...

for example in 2.0 initially there was supposed to be a scene of a reunion between the SEELE monoliths that confirm that they are the ones who sabotaged EVA-04(although it was already heavily implied) and that they knew that by sending EVA-03 to Japan it would be infected by Bardiel during ...

One line of hearsay. One line of uncontradicted hearsay by someone placed to know that aligns perfectly with what we see with our own eyes, the lack of any indication of stuff like 3.0 in the wideranging discussions in the 2.0 CRC. and Anno's own comments about how meaningful the earthquake was...

We have nothing to indicate things didn't actually go according to the original evil keikaku (keikaku means plan) If by 'nothing' you mean 'rumors by industry figures consistent with all. observations' http://sankei.jp.msn.com/entertainments/news/121214/ent12121416120017...

Re: [SPOILERS] Ogata 3.0 interview?

I don't doubt that at some point he said "you know what, i'm sick of redoing the series with minor changes, lets really shake things up" and decided that the impact of 2.22 was as good a justification as necessary to toss a massive game changing curveball at the audience. Or, as I...

Such a moving interview, in some ways... Anno is getting old and pondering his legacy. (And another datapoint on how close Anno and Miyazaki are.)

- Sadamoto really wanted to put snow at the end of Eva, even asking Anno to put it in EoE, since he thought that it would be a good change for a series that always took place in deep summer. And finally he put this idea which he had kept for >15 years into the manga at Stage 94, and lest just the s...

See? That´s what I´ve always heard. But sometimes people state that Anno participated in them. Maybe you could help me with this. I really want to know if Anno collaborated. It seems that in Evangelion scripts, often "objet d´art" is used to describe something. I always assumed that Anno ...

@ gwern : What I see is that at the very beginning of the project, Otsuki indeed requested a new character for commercial purposes, and Anno took the opportunity to bring "fresh blood" in Evangelion, because he felt that without it he won't be able to significantly change the story. T...

Production questions, eh...

Was House correct that the original budget was gone by episode 9?

Did TV Tokyo insist on pre-approving any of the final episodes, via a screening panel including PTA members?

Did Tatsunoko lose any film or cels during production?

If I remember correctly Anno said somewhere he would've been happy with NGE's final episode being him sitting on a chair in empty room and talking to camera. Other GAINAX guys veto'd the idea :lol: I don't think chairs were necessarily involved http://www.gwern.net/docs/eva/1996-new...
