Re: What is Rei doing in that weird Sephirothic LCL pool in EoE?

Considering that Rei is inside the Sephirah Malkuth, the one closest to the earthly world, I imagine that symbolically it means that she is preparing for the ascension along the Tree of Life, to reach at the end of the ritual the spiritual world represented by the Sephirah Keter (the crown). Remembe...

Re: Seele's Instrumentality Report and Aum Shinrikyo

Hi, I'm the author of the article. The point is not that Seele is a copy of Aum Shinrikyo, the point, as Zusuchan well understood, is that Evangelion was created in a specific historical period and was influenced by the zeitgeist, the Japanese cultural fabric of that era. The radio in episode 20 men...

Re: Evangelion 3.33 FAQ

Thanks Sailor Star Dust, so the source is the 3.0's bluray booklet. Can I ask you the exact phrase written in the booklet? Thanks! The time-skip doesn't logically depend on Rei, we know she can be replaced, and even without the Eva-01 awakening I think if they really had time-skip in mind then they ...

Re: Evangelion 3.33 FAQ

Guys, some time ago I read on this forum someone saying that in the booklet or pamphlet of 3.0 Anno said that the third film was meant from the beginning to be the way we know it, so from the very beginning Khara had been thinking about time skip. Other people say that Anno rewrote the film's script...

Dear Hope, your post is so honest and sincere that it impressed me a lot. I am very glad with the path you are taking, and I very much share your conclusion: One friend once said to me, "Essentially, the healing the show can give isn't in the show itself, it's in what you take from it, what you...

Re: Theories Disproven By Outside Evidence

@Blockio This interview doesn't contradict Otsuki's statements, but reinforces them. In both interviews, NTE is not referred to as a remake or direct sequel to NGE, but rather as a new work. Interviewer : I think what many fans expect from you and Director Anno is a "second Eva" and not an...

Re: Theories Disproven By Outside Evidence

Can you link a source that discredits this interview? If you mean that from 2006 to today Khara has changed/expanded the path, then I agree, but if you mean that in 2006 these statements were nonsense then you should explain yourself better. Burden of proof. However I linked it for these considerati...

NGE BD Standard Edition - Fly me to the moon

Does anyone know if in 2019 Blu Ray Standard Edition of NGE* there is "Fly me to the moon" (ending songs and bgm)? In 2015 BD box there is it, but it's absent on Netflix. What about 2019 box? * https://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Neon-Genesis-Evangelion-Blu-ray-BOX-STANDARD-EDITION-Blu-ray/2494...

It feels like it's mostly used in Internet arguments as an excuse for people to impose whatever they want onto somebody else's work, while screaming all ideas are equally valid. It's postmodernist nonsense. Dead authors can't make anything. Art that comes from the heart and soul deserves to be cons...

Re: The idea of a timeloop

The manga ending is a karma-loop from past to the future, not a time-loop past-future-past. A necessary and sufficient condition for a time-loop is the rewinding of time backwards. In the manga this thing doesn't happen, but, as Yui says "all life has in itself the strength to restore itself&qu...

What do you think about time-loop, karma-loop and multiverse?

Reading some threads about timeloop, 5 questions arose spontaneously in my mind and I thought I'd write them here. Warning: the timeloop I am talking about is internal to NTE, and it not concern EoE (see question n ° 3). I ask you to stick to the main questions, without discussing the actual possibi...

I can translate that if wanted, but I'm pretty sure that whole interview has been translated before. It's the one where Anno talks about miscalculating regarding Rei by having her character arc reach pinnacle too early in ep 6 and them him literally forgetting about her (for a while), as what had i...

Re: Against "Rebuild is Anti-Rei Pro-Asuka" conspiracy theory

how he'd forgotten about Rei through the course of the original NGE? Bah, I'm too lazy to look it up. Probably the interview you say is this: 庵野 「実は僕,レイって全然思い入れないんですよ」 竹熊 「??えそうなんですか」 庵野 . 「僕の中になんの思い入れもないまあ分裂症の象徴というふうに野火さんは書いてますけどね.実際そうしたかった部分もありますレイが一番よくわかんないですね.あと,興味がそんなにないというか.意識的にそうしてたところもあるんです...

Re: Asuka isn't Justified

Although on the one hand I agree that Shinji is simply a young boy, I think it is wrong to consider the characters only for their true ages. It can only be done up to a certain point, without seeking too much reasonableness and verisimilitude. It's true, Shinji and Asuka are teenagers, but it's also...
