Look under essays. Second one. Haven't read it yet, but it may be interesting.
Done. Guarding.

Moderately interesting. It gives a lot of historical background information which is interesting, but I felt like it could have gone deeper into Evangelion lore.

Also is this true :?:
Nadia is the model for Misato Katsuragi
EVANGERIONANIME is stupid

It was my understanding that she was the model for Shinji. I'm not joking. There eye's are drawn the same way (Sadamoto say's so).

Ah yes, Dennis Redmond. I'm currently reading the sections on Evangelion in his book "The World is Watching".

He's a smart fellow, much of his own ideas of Eva are unique to himself. Within what I've read of his book, the only thing which I found to be blatantly misinterpreting Eva is when he describes the Angels as a "mysterious alien species from another dimension".

Aside from that, what he's written on Eva hasn't really seemed very earth shattering or interesting. I've been more intrigued by fan essays by the likes of Brian Shea, Amanda Wells, and MDWigs.

Mr. Redmond's comments concerning Misato's character design are indeed false. As Sadamoto stated in "My Thoughts at the Moment", Nadia is the model for Shinji, not Misato.

Spreaking in concreate terms, his eyes are a girl's eyes. I drew them exactly as I drew Nadia's eyes. He's a male Nadia, just as if I had given Nadia a masculine makeover. Lengthen the eyelashes and change the hair style, and you have Nadia.


I'll have to give this essay a read through when I'm in the proper mental state. And by "proper mental state", I mean I'll read this the next time boredom strikes.

Yeah I read it a while ago and it's pretty good. I also mentioned it a bit ago (probably should of gave it it's own topics).

Yeah it was really interesting and considering it's free, y'all should read it.

i think it looks more like Misato..if you compare a screenshot where Misato is with Kaji and Ritsuko in an old photo is exactly the same..

That author's pretty interesting (I found the book for EM in our college's library), he pretty much proves that you can make a living/hobby by just watching a crapload of films and television....if anything, his obscure references to other films and shows in his analysis of evangelion made me think...and laugh.

Well, I guess EoE sort of supports that idea.

Does anyone have any idea what that image from EoE is meant to represent?

After Shinji sees the spermy legion of Rei swim past him, there is a quick back-and-forth pan across a cluster of entities; to the right it is orange, to the left it is inverted.
