Re: Criticism of Evangelion: Accept, Reject, or Both?

What's important to consider when determining if a piece of criticism is valid or not, particularly when it comes to Eva, is whether it conflates critiquing the characters with critiquing the shows overall quality. For instance, this is the thought process of many Eva detractors; - Shinji/Asuka/etc ...

Re: God's personality

With the way you're framing this question, you'll never reach a satisfying answer. It simply doesn't exist. You're trying to apply an incredibly human concept like personality upon a being that, in spite of allegedly creating us in their image, couldn't be anymore disparate from our nature. Think ab...

Re: [Literature] Currently Reading (discussion)

Had a friend lend me his copy of Mark Z. Danielewski's House of Leaves , heard a lot of good things from him. To hear him tell it, you'd be hardpressed to see a piece of fiction that ""challenges"" the medium in a more interesting manner, and coupled with the horror aspect, it's ...

Re: Does Christianity even EXIST in the Eva canon?

It's not framed as the Christian Heaven at all. What's giving you this impression? Elements that Christianity and Kabbalah happen to share? As I prefaced before making this argument, I don't actually believe it myself. I was simply working within the framework of @Ray's interpretation of Eva "...

Re: Best Pair

Arael was a lonely child trying to reach out and understand the world. Gotta realize that the Angels haven't been socialized, so how could they possibly know or care about things like privacy? Don't misunderstand me, I fully acknowledge the Angels plight. Tragic doesn't even begin to describe it, b...

Re: Old timers: Why do you keep coming back to Eva?

It's a bit of a nostalgia thing for me. Strangely enough, aside from a few scattered DBZ episodes, End of Eva is actually one of the earliest anime related memories I have. My dad used to be really into anime, mostly Ghibli films, but on this occasion he happened to be watching EoE in his office whi...

Re: Does Christianity even EXIST in the Eva canon?

1. Seele probably thinks through things with a scientific ideology more than they do a religious ideology. Considering how little solid evidence there is compared to educated speculation regarding SEELE, it’s quite the leap to make an assumption regarding HOW they think things through, particularly...

Re: FML general thread [8]

I like coffee, but I had espresso for the first time in my life today and I couldn't even finish drinking it, it's sooooooo bitter! You probably just had a really shitty espresso. Thing is, a whole lotta coffee franchises have a tendency to go a little overboard with the caffeine, specifically in t...

Re: Best Pair

Either you encountered a very dedicated troll with quite a sense of sarcasm, or a person with some quite differing opinions from the ''standard''. I've never known of a troll that wrote 100k+ words of psuedo-smut and only distributed it to a few people. I'll go with the latter. I strongly believe t...

Re: Best Pair

Semi-related; I used to chat with a guy that swore by his Asuka x friggin Arael pairing, and he was dead serious. It struck me as incredibly absurd and a just a lil' bit disturbing, but he was hellbent on convincing me otherwise. From what I recall, he basically pitched it as "the only characte...

Re: Is Asuka really deserving of sympathy?

I am completely serious when I say that I knew someone like Asuka and cared a great deal about that person, and I mean triggered as in angered to the point of physical violence. I guess what really reminded me of personal memories was not just Asuka as a standalone character, but also how she inter...

Re: From Your Lips to the Author's Ears: Story Ideas

Has anyone ever written a sizable fanfiction exploring the Angels POV? And by "sizable", I mean more than a quick perspective cut in the middle of a "regular" fic (which I think I saw once years ago). I toyed with the idea a while back, starting with Sachiel, since it seemed like...

Re: Is Asuka really deserving of sympathy?

In response to your question, I said that they don't have the right because just because they had bad traumas when they were little does not mean that they let it bother them so much that they act like the insufferably broken people that they are. They are like 14 years old, 14 year olds should be ...

Re: Is Asuka really deserving of sympathy?

Going off "topic" a bit, there's actually a theory that everything about NERV was INTENTIONALLY designed that way towards the Children, in order to make them more susceptible to the idea of Instrumentality. Yeah, I've heard of this theory before, and while it's certainly intriguing, I don...

Re: Is Asuka really deserving of sympathy?

My sig says I dealt with trauma. But the trauma occurred in school because people didn't give me the socialization I needed because I'm autistic and it was pretty bad. That happened when I was 7 years old and for five years, I acted like a really angry brat who had even more trouble crying and woul...

I am a teenager, I'm 18 years old. And here, it's legally an adult. Yes, I have met teenagers, but I'm sheltered, I've been home-schooled since third grade so I haven't been socializing with people that much. The teenagers I know are pure sweeties who are nice to people. They're very responsible an...

Re: Is Asuka really deserving of sympathy?

I think Asuka is unrealistic and cliched because she is a tsundere and a spoiled brat, which are considered stock characters. Asuka is unrealistic because she wants to be seen as an adult, no teenager has thought of that. So with that, she is so interested in older men, she can't get along with boy...
