Re: Line and her problems (split)

If I am such a nuisance... ...then you should feel good about it, because the more you differ from the community, the more you can add to it, if you're creative. Sure, this particular community is close to a cargo cult of one brainchild and her apocrypha - as if Anno himself never said that Eva is ...

Re: The Music of 3.0+1.0

Time to drop the bomb. I've skimmed the 3.0 + 1.0 OST and now I have this song on repeat . Since four days, on and on. I decyphered the lyrics. While I don't insist on a 100% accuracy, I consider them faithful enough to convey the message. The song features - I think it's Yuko Miyamura. I also wonde...

Re: Loop Theory (I Really was born to meet you)

Kaworu, one of the lynchpins of your entire argument, outright tells Shinji that he can't change the past. That alone completely rules out loop "theory" Not so fast. If - if! - Kaworu meant time travel, he merely stated that traveller cannot change what already hapened to the world and wi...

Re: Message In A Bottle (How the End of Evangelion Traumatized Me & How I Overcame It)

Hey, I've skimmed the story, but I got weary pretty fast - not because it's poorly written, but because I'm a poor English reader. Seems that English writing and reading skills are wired in different parts of my brain and the latter part is less developed. Also, I felt a bit uneasy when reading soem...

Re: Not Your Average Day - Weird Stuff Thread

Okay, you got point; sense of humor indeed can keep one's sanity in one piece. :D But I wasn't thinking of group home or any shelter like that.

Re: Shin Eva: A new art style towards the ending?

Re: Evangelion Pic Thread 10: The Society for the Appreciation Of The Premium Girl (and her friends)

Okay, I'm bidding high now, but the duo standing near to Unit 01, in the centre of the zoomed photo, seems to be adult Toji (half-hidden behind the hill) and adult Kensuke (waving his left hand in the air).

Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media: 2.22 You Can (Not) Release

GhostlyOcam, I read her (via Google Translate) as encouraging us to see the movie early, not the enigmatic "report", as if she was expecting some spoiler madness in the 'Net soon after the release. Also:

Ogata Megumi on Twitter wrote:I'm just talking about myself being baptized.

Re: Je 18:15

Seems that I should precise my standpoint, as it's more nuanced than all prophets are reptillians . :uhh: As far as now I accept the possibility that some Creator(s) of reality may exist somehow, somewhere, despite all claims of the wisemen of our epoch. I've just never met one. Even if some of the ...

Okay: I can't see such solution, but maybe I'm biased. Can you resolve that your way? If so, what is the reading? I reluctantly raise this argument, but Anno was criticised by one of his colleagues directors for building NTE as mere compilation of concepts borrowed from elsewhere (or something like ...

Re: Not Your Average Day - Weird Stuff Thread

Princess Asuka, this is indeed an awful deal to play the game of life. I think you have one advantage though: you know what's really going on around and nobody hides the truth away from you. This allows you to make the right decisions; if you were lied to, you'd be doomed to pure fortune and misfor...

Some say Evangelion is like a puzzle everyone should solve alone. If this holds true, than in my opinion sharing and discussing personal solutions is what Eva community should do, instead of pursuing perfection in some self-proclaimed orthodoxy. However strict allignment to cannon appears to be high...

Well, it's not a character in a strict meaning of word, but the Nebukhadnezzar Key gives me strong Tool vibes. And it's really hard to choose which song would be the best match with for the whole Eva mood and story as it 's been told so far. Aenema maybe? Some say the end is near Some say we'll ...
