View Original PostAve Omnissiah wrote:My background is one of historic education and military industrial analysis, which has shaped how I view media such as Eva. Just as there is a shift away from the Great Man Theory in historiography, I find the concept of "history from below" can be fascinating in fictional mediums as well- how does the average person experience and influence the events around them?

I first stumbled on the Wiki while working on a project involving running modeling and analysis of fictional employment of real-world systems, which I decided to apply to Evangelion in part due to the detailed portrayal of recognizable defense assets. Once I got started, I decided to share the fruits of my labor with the community that had made it so much easier, so look forward to that in the coming weeks!

This sounds like an intriguing lens to view Eva under, I'm very interested in seeing what you have to share!

Hello! I am back.

I was quite active here many years ago, but I left upon the release of Evangelion 3.0: You Can (Not) Redo, due to not being able to view the movie for months, and not wanting to be spoiled by any discussion of it.

Now I have finished watching 3.0+1.0, and I am ready to engage in discussion again. I might not be as active as I used to be, though.

Wow, this sounds incredibly interesting.

Also, I guess I never posted in this thread when I joined on July 28, 2007, but it looks like I've been here a full 15 years now!

Hello, I am Thorion, a recent Evangelion fan, long time fan-fiction writer, writer in general, currently working on a fic in the form of a play. I am a fan of many things, my favourite actor and director is Kenneth Branagh, though my favourite film is the 1994 film adaptation of "Black Beauty", I am well read, one of my favourite books being "Tarzan of the Apes", I enjoy theater, being a frequent patron at Ontario's Straftford Festival, I am gamer, I enjoy graphic novels and audio books, am always interested in some great mystery, I have heterochromia, something I frequently write into my protagonists in relation to my non-fan fic stories, and aspergers, something which I have never incorporated though I probably should.

Hi, welcome to both!

I have a sort of sectoral heterochromia. My eyes are light brown (predominant) and a bit of green (this color was inherited from my mother), which makes my eyes have a similar color to amber. My friends constant says to me I have "yellow eyes" or "cat eyes" -o-;

Hi, my name is Sarah (she/her) and I'm new, both here and to Evangelion in general.

I am still watching through the TV series -- in fact I'm not particularly far in yet -- but I love it so far.

I think one of the main reasons I got into it was this budding obsession with hand-drawn animation and illustration. I recently watched a documentary on Youtube about Studio Khara and the Japan Animator Expo, and while I couldn't understand a word of it (I know zero Japanese), watching the animators at work was really awe-inspiring.

Right now I find myself very confused in reading about the seemingly endless subtle differences in English dubs over the years, etc. I am very obsessive about this kind of thing, as evidenced by the fact that I've already spent way more time 'researching' stuff like this than actually watching the show even once all the way through...

But something about the obsessing is fun for me, too. So I'm excited to be here, amongst other members who would care about something like a single word of dialogue being dubbed differently in one version compared to another, and who would need to know why, etc. etc. (just for example).

I intended to make a proper return a year ago. Got distracted. Hopefully I'll stay longer this time lol. I've got a good job now, have a gf, and I'm out as being nonbinary, so I'm a lot happier and more mentally stable now. Been working on my creative pursuits on the side as well, and I'm making decentish progress I think.

I said and did some dumb and hurtful things in my time here when i was younger. If i ever hurt you, i'm sorry. If you see any of this while reading old threads, i'm learning and trying to improve. Donut redemption arc in progress.

Hey!
Quite literally just joined for the hell of it, decided "I love Eva, tempted to begin collecting merch". This lead me to here.
I watched Eva last year and it very quickly became my favorite piece of media, period. I do currently collect games, you can find me on vgforum with the name of just "bloopy".
Hopefully I don't annoy anyone, although thats likely unavoidable.


Asuka is my favorite character because I can relate to a lot of her struggles.. Wish I couldn't, though.

Hey there, Asuka is my favorite character too! If you are looking for good places to find merchandise I recommend actually importing from Japan right now because of how weak the yen is! I've recently made some orders from both Mandarake and AmiAmi because of this.

I recently bought these two and they're probably the best Eva Unit posable toys I've ever had!

If you've never used Mandarake either it's a fun store from Japan that can have lots of neat odds and ends. I got an Evangelion Ice Cube tray and Asuka chop sticks there! Be careful to check the descriptions for info though since they sell new and used stuff, including some damaged stuff at a big discount.
