I didn't say that the storylines are nowhere near the same. They are identical, actually, and I pointed this out many times in the comparison gallery. Only the meaning is different.
And the point was that I always wanted to make a gallery of similarities of these two series. That's all.

And many of those surface-level, cosmetic similarities lay on top of the plot being the same, scenes occuring in the same order in the same episode, dialouge being the same at the same points in the series, and characters resembling each other for a reason.

Pointing out differences doesn't erase similarities.

No - because those scenes happened in the same order in the same episode with the same camera angle and everything happening generally the same way.

Right there you just similarized two different dialects to make them similar. Since both shows originated in Japan, you can't say that 1 show is similar to the other when the words are changed between languages.
I also explicitly stated that I was only pointing it out for fun.
YOU have failed.

Never heard of the site or the person.
I'm very interested in how everyone is calling my stupid. Because, of couse, someone's intelligence is based on ONE of their opinions.

Nah, Shinji_Ikari had more resolve. EvaXephon left around post #10 when his ideas were deemed laughable, and he hasn't been back.
I went to bed. As you can see, I'm back, and defusing everyone's posts.Originally posted on: 07.21.2006, 05:39 PM
