Re: The Sandbox - Formulating an Analysis

It's gratifying to see someone else bring this scene up. It is one of my favorite parts of EoE (and I have a lot of favorite parts). I would largely agree with your synopsis of the wiki's take, and concur that 1) the woman is a symbolic representation of motherhood (and thus linked to, but not of o...

The Sandbox - Formulating an Analysis

Guys - this is one that's been nagging me for a long time. The sandbox scene in Episode 26' is, well, hard to describe. It sits right in a series of confusing sequences that really define Eva as a show. While most of the utter nonsense in Eva has been pretty well analyzed / talked through, I feel as...

Re: Does Asuka see Shinji as her Senpai?

N. O. But it's important to recognize how different auskas relationship with Shinji is throughout the rebuilds. Not only is she an entirely different character (shikinami) but her mannerisms and speech are extremely different than her hardcore tsundere roots. Romantic rivals are something super new ...

Re: Episode Previews

That music is an absolute banger, and the running gag of Misato saying "They'll be more fanservice nextime" is something uniquely evangelion. That being said, the spoil quite a bit. However, as is the case with rebuild 2, they give insight into creative processes and storyboards. The previ...

Re: The most disturbing moment in Evangelion

Aside from the obvious hospital scene that I still have nightmares about Here's a real interesting one. The scene in episode 26('?) where Shinji, Asuka, and Rei are living in a non-eva world super freaked me out. It wasn't necessarily disturbing, but it sure was the biggest WTF moment for me. That ...

Re: Evangelion Endings - Which is Best, Which is your favorite?

The manga take on a ending to an Eva property was interesting , and only in a way Evangelion could be. I should re-read through that just to not be interrupted by long breaks throughout and really study it. (To say that Sadamoto was never very punctual about these releases is laughable. He's been d...

whynotboth.gif You know what, I've actually never watched Evangelion and just stopped with the EoTV ending. I love both for entirely different reasons, but something tells me that I would walk away feeling WAY more uplifted if I just stopped with EoTV. I should try that next time. You have a point....

Re: Does Rei Ayanami have schizophrenia?

I'm with the masses on this one. Rei is another persons soul, combined with a god, inside a lillin vessel. I think it's very unfair to judge her state of mind based on human science. Whatever issues she may have probably relate to state of being rather than anything medical. Furthermore, if she did ...

Re: Evangelion Endings - Which is Best, Which is your favorite?

EOE. The TV ending just takes place within the EOE ending, and in the manga ending the characters have seemingly forgotten the events of the story. What do you mean about the manga? Are you basically saying that the same sort of instrumentality happened and then they forgot? It always seemed like S...

Re: How do I download the wiki?

You don't download the EvaGeeks wiki, just as you don't download Wikipedia or any other wiki. You browse it on line by searching and following links. You can download wikipedia! It's a pretty common thing to do in no-inernet debate rounds. It's actually, super useful. I'm with OP here, is there a w...

Re: Why was Shinji strangling Asuka at the end of EoE?

When people ask me this question, my gut response is always

"It's not about why he started strangling her, it's the fact that he stopped"

Reading this thread is actually super cool, but that's the interpretation I always stand by, as vague as it may be :D

Re:

D&R is pretty much forced, unless the change includes the heroic effort needed to get EoE out on the original schedule. Personally, I think we could stand to lose the DC material, with associated reductions in shipping material in EoE. And in similar vein, use a tightened up version of the alte...

Evangelion Endings - Which is Best, Which is your favorite?

Evangelion has, a lot of endings. At least more than most shows out there. From the manga, to TV, to EoE, or speculation about 3.0+1.0, NGE leaves no shortage of satisfaction (or I guess, un-satisfaction) for its fan base to chew on. But which is the best? Which is your favorite? Do you have any the...
