Re: The Subject of Hair

Hair -- there are three ways in which a tough protective layer can form, depending whether it twists inwards, outwards or just lies flat. You get a choice of scales, feathers or hair (not in that order) as a result. Distaste for it, and consequent cultural customs of thorough depilation, has formed ...

In Rei's case, I would assume that her preferences would be like Nadia's, i.e. based off Anno's.

Re: Controversial Anime Opinions

Quite. Ray should name some names here.

The original complaint seemed to be calling out phenomena like Tougou's megalopolis, where there's oppai monster who stands out from the rest of the cast. There may not even be that token boob demon if the characters are all high-school students.

I recall a previous iteration of this complaint where the general response was along the lines of "Did you never have that girl in your class at school?".

Re: Controversial Anime Opinions

I can't off-hand locate the "K-On! through the decades" picture which would be the appropriate riposte, so I'll just point at this epitome of '90s style which is used in that picture. Or we can just point at something slightly more objective.

YuYuYu S2 -- we End of Evangelion now, in oh so many ways, with a little bit of the Utena / Ultraman scene that also got recycled in Ha as well. https://i.imgur.com/PTEmwlWl.jpg Just a pity that, as in the first season, it could have done with another episode to let it breathe, rather than being a ...

Re: News [NO POLITICS]

The embargo on this wasn't supposed to lift until the 9th, but clearly somebody wanted the notoriety. There were some all-nighters being pulled this week, by people I know, as a consequence. The nature of the attack is one of these obvious-in-hindsight things; and in one of the three variants, hits ...

It was a throw-away line in a fic I read many years ago, justifying why things were pretty much normal while dealing with the fact that the black-haired person who ended up on a beach was Yui Ikari in Shinji's body (in and amongst a heavy ration of soap-opera).

Re: From Your Lips to the Author's Ears: Story Ideas

Is that what you meant? I'm not sure he'd say that -- just think it. My story is different ... It picks up right off where EOE ended, and goes from there(albeit with some non linear chronology). This isn't he first fic I've seen that takes this approach -- EVA-R did much the same thing, much earlie...

Re: About ' EOE : I Need You '

it's perfectly plausible to believe that Asuka is addressing Shinji when she says 'Kimochi warui'. I can't find the page which had a French script for EoE -- it seems to have evaporated in the decade-plus since I first found it -- in which that was indeed the reading. Another French site that does ...

Both you and Mr Tines seem to be ignoring the fact that it actually has a story Speaking from only having reached the end of episode 4, any story has yet to make itself distinct from merely establishing the setting. Things like the apprenticeship and managing your Sleigh Beggy are the sort of backg...

Mahoutsukai no Yome : A girl with red hair falls in love with a man with a skull for a face. There's also magic or something. A lot of people seem to enjoy this one, but I don't see anything special.

Next up: Probably Utena. Though I may watch something else concurrently, as I could use something more comedic. Still undecided. ^_^ If a series with surf-boarding elephants and body-swap curry isn't already comedic enough for you (and that's just in the first cour, mind you), then I'm not sure wha...

Tabris-XX aka Tabby-chan is stacked.

Fem-Kaworu, OTOH, is the interpretation that the new character we see in episode 24 is actually a reverse trap. You'll have to go digging in the archives for the full story.
