"Iroha" Buddhist poem connections to Sakura Nagashi and the themes of NGE

Mouthful of a title I know. But, I recently learned about a Buddhist poem originating in Japan, which is very commonly used as a placeholder during a project's development [I heard about it first as a placeholder graphic in Sonic 3's slot machine bonus stages]. Now this could easily be a coincidence...

Re: [Merch] Evangelion Figures Superthread [3]

BRUHHH UNIT 06 RG LOOKS SICK AS FUCK I really don't mind that it looks a bit more chunky than the anime design, I know part of the reason the old HG EVAs are so damn hard to pose is because of their nonexistent waistline in contrast to their broad shoulders. Unit 06 did always look a bit too scrawny...

Re: [Merch] Evangelion Figures Superthread [3]

What do you guys think of Bandai's ungraded Unit 06 model? I've been eyeing it for a couple weeks at my hobby store's Gunpla section and I'm seriously considering getting it. Like having it in it's descending pose with Cassius like it's going down into Terminal Dogma would be so fucking rad.

Re: What possibly happened between 2.0 and 3.0

Ah shit. I tried to see if there was one but this forum's search feature is more fucked than some EVA comparison that would make me sound like even more of a turbo-virgin than I already am.

Re: Why didn't Hyuga self-destruct NERV HQ in EoE?

While Unit 01 [and potentially Unit 02 if needed if Anima's backstory is as close to NGE as I've been led to believe] was the primary target, I don't see why self destructing NERV wouldn't destroy it. In the cases an EVA was damaged, it always [unless I'm remembering wrong] had a pilot in it, and th...

Avoiding Khara's YouTube copyright claims?

I really love making edits and music videos and shitty unfunny memes using NGE and NTE footage to post on my channel, but 9/10 times it'll get claimed and hidden by Khara. Like god damn I just want to use like 2 minutes of footage max bruh, I'm not uploading the whole goddamn franchise. Any tips on ...

What possibly happened between 2.0 and 3.0

Taken from my comments on a YouTube cam upload of Evangelion 0706: At the end of 2.0 Shinji tried to save Rei from the Tenth Angel's core after she was absorbed into it, but had to Awaken Unit 01 to do so. The fusion of the Awakened Unit 01 with the remains of the Angel started up Third Impact, but ...

Re: Possible Spinoffs After 3.0+1.0

I'd really love to see Anim a get an anim e adaptation. It's a common thing for novels to get anime made of them in Japan, especially those based on a pre-established IP like EVA. Besides, all that action is too awesome to keep restrained to text and a few illustrations. I just hope the first half o...

Re: Do the other Angels know they're going towards Lilith, or do they think it's Adam like Kaworu did?

I never even noticed Kaworu's weird inconsistency with the conversation at Lake Ashi, that makes things so much more confusing. Taking into account Gaghiel's ability to detect Adam and go after it during episode 8, maybe Gendo's fusion with Adam caused it to stop putting off it's "signal"....

Do the other Angels know they're going towards Lilith, or do they think it's Adam like Kaworu did?

Angels will relentlessly head for Terminal Dogma, it seems instinctive. But if that were the case, wouldn't they be heading for the actual body of Adam? The idea is that Angels would head for Lilith no matter what in order to cause Third Impact, but there's a hole in that idea- Tabris doesn't have t...

Re: [Game] Neon Genesis Evangelion: Chapter 1 (PS4/PS5/PC) - RUMOR

My wish for years now is for an Evangelion character action game similar to Evangelion Jo, where the EVA/Angel fights are all fast, flashy, dodge-heavy, Bayonetta style action, and the character segments where you control the pilot who's story you pick at the start, act as a hub world. Platinum Game...

Re: Platinum Complete Manufacturing Error or Bootleg?

Looks identical to mine, I didn't even know bootlegs could come as nice as this, so close to the real thing. Did some digging and found likely the same thread on here you did, EvaMonkey talking about the clear cases and the G. Seems we both have legit copies :tongue:

Re: Did we ever learn WHY Netflix' version has screwy music?

Well, I'd say that the Netflix redub is satisfactory in that department. Not only does it actually take the movie seriously, there were no copyright issues that led to music being removed. I'd be completely fine if GKids just kept the Netflix dubs in general, possibly with ADV and Manga for preserv...

Re: Two questions about the release of Evangelion 4.0

3.0+1.0 is very much unlikely to come to a US theater as just a sub, and even more unlikely to do so right after releasing in Japan. If we get lucky we might get specifically the dub as a 2 or 3 day release in one US cinema chain like how GKids did Promare. EVA's just not popular enough in the US to...

Re: Did we ever learn WHY Netflix' version has screwy music?

The most obvious example is in ep1, when Shinji says he'll pilot and we get a montage of Unit 01's startup sequence. What's supposed to happen is EVA-01 plays during this, but it's completely absent, replaced with silence. The 2.0 Stereo mix of Episode 1 actually has different music queuing than th...

Re: What do you appreciate most about NTE?

I like how it's not JUST a remake, but instead a full-on separate story which starts a tiny bit in 1.0 and then evolves into it's own thing in 2.0. Obviously it started as just a remake of Anno's NGE using groundbreaking 2D and 3D animation tech, and likely would have been what was initially planned...

Obviously Fly Me to the Moon is just copyright shenanigans and Netflix being too cheap to properly license the best animated series of all time, what I'm referring to is the incorrect score placement.
