It's a DVD/BD bonus feature, not the product itself. :nyao:

Excuse me while what little is left of my suspension of disbelief slowly drinks itself to death in the corner.


(Otherwise I am absurdly fucking hyped up for this movie and I cannot wait for it to come out.)

Yeah, I wasn't sure what to make of BOTH either. I thought Shikinami could regain some dignity in 3.0, not lose it. :tongue:

Female characters in anime don't have dignity. They have E cups instead.

But again, other than that, HOLY SHIT YES IT'S FINALLY COMING THREE POINT OOOOOH MYYYYY GAAAWWWDDD

I guess you mean boobs - E cup is kind of rarity in anime female characters...

And nowadays even male characters in anime do not have much of dignity either...
I never thought I would come back to Evangelion after EoE,
But I discovered Re-Take (or it found me?) and
now here I am.

Can't be that much worse than the fat suit from Episode 10. :tongue:

Though, the cat suit does look a little ridiculous. Guess we'll have to see what happens and how its handled. I've seen poorer shows decently pull off worse costumes.

You Can (Not) Redo? Is someone gonna try a Peggy Sue?

As for Asuka's new suit: it makes no sense whatsoever. If she's supposed to be in an Eva than why is her face covered up, is it because she's supposed to be able to survive in a vacuum? In either case, shouldn't her helmet be large enough to contain an oxygen delivery apparatus, and shouldn't the rest of her suit be thick enough to contain the climate control systems necessary to keep her from freezing and/or boiling to death? It takes more than a mask to survive in space, after all.

Oxygen and life support might be contained in a backpack we don't see.

The suit's thickness isn't that much of a problem. NASA and other space agencies are working on "skinsuits," and they come out looking fairly similar to their sci-fi counterparts. What with composites and aerogels, a suit doesn't need to be thick to be warm/protective.

The plugsuits could already function as stopgap EVA suits (:tongue:), so the biggest challenge (if there even is one) is to connect them to helmet units.

Or for the real reason: FANSERVICE, THE HELL WITH PRACTICALITY.

And Rei is officially "the first childrens" but that's silly so we ignore it. "NME" is :zzz: "Rebuild" is :headbang:

Regarding the helmet: she's already a catgirl because of the clips. The helmet just makes her catgirl squared. It's a little early to complain that it makes no sense. It makes no sense that she's in space with a duct taped suit. I bet seeing more than ten seconds of film will shed some light.

"Rebuild" not being the official title was a germane response to essel. It was not used, like all those other "Re-"s; it was abandoned before the first film came out. (Your personal tastes are irrelevant to Khara. ;p )

And Rei isn't the "First Children" in NME. She's the First Girl. :p

Even as a bonus feature, it's still the official name of that bonus feature :P

I think they created another problem in correcting the oddity of singular "Children", though: How can Shinji be the "Third Boy" if there's no first or second boy?

(Or... is there? :bigeyes: )

I'll have to get one of those "Rebuild" T-shirts that Anno's staff wears so I can support the best title. Man, they sure are proud of that DVD feature. Enough to make T-shirts of it! Ahem.

You were talking about "products". A bonus feature is part of a product, but unless sold alone it isn't the product itself.

Yeah, I noticed that as soon as the "Children" replacement scheme was publicized. :hahaha:

View Original PostWarren Peace wrote:I'll have to get one of those "Rebuild" T-shirts that Anno's staff wears so I can support the best title.

Oh, you.

But seriously, the T-shirts don't mean what you think they mean. The official title hasn't changed from when it was first announced years ago, and if you don't know (or refuse to believe) that the films are called ヱヴァンゲリヲン新劇場版 you will lose your footing in the Japanosphere VERY fast. The word "rebuild" gets bandied about in reference to the films, but it's not a project title in the slightest. It's more of a buzz word (bonus points for being in English) to indicate what they're doing, "rebuilding" Eva for the current generation. I'm guessing you can't read Japanese at all, so of course seeing "REBUILD" pops out at you, but the facts are what they are. You have to deal with it, same as I have to deal with the Anglosphere calling the movies by their production title. :p

Chee, I'll admit you're a handsome quack, but why is there a police officer in the background? Have you taken the issue into your own hands already?

Warren Peace wrote:It makes no sense that she's in space with a duct taped suit.

Well in their universe I'll bet the Space Shuttle is also gone, so the only ones left to launch her into space would be...

But in all honesty, I think I know how this could get worse (give or take a fetish), they may ask her to do this to the right-rear side of her loading tram right before launch. Or maybe that spiffy car Misato was driving them in earlier or the plug truck. Thankfully, a cup is involved, so the shame would be minimal.

I love it. Apart from nekomimi it reminds me of Nausicaä's flightsuit of all things for some reason (srsly wtf what is wrong with my mental schemas).

Nekomimi is a big plus.

View Original PostSaltyJoe wrote:The way 2.0 was concluded, i just don't see enough momentum in the story built up so far for two full length movies, yet it's also too late in the game to start building up a new story, which seems to be Khara's intention what with the plethora of new characters and such.

And i honestly wouldn't care if Anno and crew would have broken their promise regarding the overall number of movies.


There's much character development and info dump needed for Mari, Asuka and Kaworu alone: add on this the entire plot thread of Shinji doing his ep 20 trip (with Rei this time around) which means a lot of focus will be on him too... oh boy, I have no idea how one film would've been enough for satisfactory end result. Because on top of that you need to tell the story and shift the other building blocks around too I don't see how at most 2h film (animation films are very rarely even that long) could've done the job

So Final coming in 2013 separately is very good news to me
