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

As of my own past - I can't believe I'm saying this in public - I, completely accidentally, in a symbolic way killed myself to achieve rebirth. EoE is, in general, a strong, affirmative statement that such maneuver is possible; that killing the past and coming back to life (Pink Floyd) can be succe...

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

There is still a lot of artwork, more or less official, clearly suggesting that Shinji & co are just actors who enact on stage; and when the show is over, they altogether jam the bar and then go back to their normal life. Little to no fanwork pictures convey such message; instead, they try to w...

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

That's an illusion. You're underprivilleged and the kind of privillege you're requesting comes with theft, hunger, hunting people and keeping mouth shut about all of that. And since many can't stand this kind of pressure for too long, they use art to boast about their trophies, because art is ambig...

Eh ... but you did use copyrighted material? You can be upset that you got caught, but it's not like it's Khara's fault for protecting their intellectual property. The fact that you (most likely illegally) downloaded it from an Italian dub has no relevance whatsoever. The italian dub itself was on ...

Do you mean Khara? But I keep seeing everywhere these notes of "I don't own any copyrights" or "The copyrights belong to The Extraordinally Evil Yet Powerful Zaibatsu", or anything. If you tried to add such clause to your video and still got bounced off the wall, then I think yo...

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

May I then take a risk and advise you to follow the message of this (iconic?) picture: and to actually rewrite the Evaverse as you wish it to be? And then to take effort and believe in your universe more than in Anno's? Ontologically, you're a being powerful enough to do so as much as he is. So dri...

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

Nevertheless, you really do have two options, like the others pointed out. Take a few years off Evangelion like Melkor did, or fill in the blanks by watching the rest of the show . The way I understand you, the only way for you to get closure for Evangelion is to watch the show in its entirety, and...

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

Maybe I will give Kare Kano a try. I am familiar with many films by Studio Ghibli, and seen films such as Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, Princess Mononoke, and the Tale of the Princess Kaguya. I’ve decided to make a list for my own mental well being and for others too, The End of Evangelion Rel...

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

If you wanna watch Eva without Asuka being quite so brutal[/b], the new movies are really good for that. I met someone at a convention who hated TV Asuka, but really liked the Asuka in the new movies. (I think Asuka even became her favorite character.) Asuka still comes off as a little brash at fir...

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

So you finished watching all the remaining episodes? Yes, that was utterly, unconditionally brutal and it doesn't help that the scene is designed to utterly break us as an audience. It further doesn’t help that I suffered a parallel fate. And no, I didn’t watch the remaining episodes because I alre...

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

The last third of the series (episode 16 and on) beats her down hard, which is where she won my sympathy. Asuka won my sympathy as well. I truly sympathize with the fact that she wanted to grow up so fast she barely even had a childhood to begin with. Personally I can’t imagine a life devoid of a c...

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

Well, to be perfectly honest, I haven't seen all of the show. I decided to skip ahead to 25 and 26. As I said before, I'm staying away from the rest because of Asuka, because she reminds me of my tormentors. Seeing her cause Shinji pain, however justified one says she is, reminds me of how others ca...

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

It’s really haunting to think, “That could’ve been me.” Which is what I felt watching EoE. True. I did associate myself with him so much that I was having nightmares. Admittedly a habit of mine is sometimes treating fictional characters as an extension of my own personality, including OC’s. On most ...

I completely agree. I believe it is wrong to blame someone for another person’s problems, especially when they are not the root of the issue.

Re: Rei Is Best Waifu

Now that I look back on it, this post I made was in response to how easier it was to tolerate Rei’s behavior over Asuka’s. Sure she may be more tolerant but does that make her a better character? It depends.

The fact I stated “Rei is best waifu” is very hypocritical of me, I understand now.

Re: Asuka isn't Justified

In all seriousness, none of the characters in Evangelion are fully justified either. The motives behind their actions are understandable and relatable. But are they acceptable? Not exactly, especially when their decisions affect others directly, when they make others suffer for their own personal ha...

Re: End of Evangelion Traumatized Me

Worse still, there’s no epilepsy warning for the movie, and it continued to be, “Not Rated” in the U.S. There’s a quote I like to turn to. “Everything will be alright in the end. If it’s not alright, it’s not the end.” Reflecting upon that, I can find comfort that Shinji and the rest of humanity hav...

No, I cannot. I know I am wrong, but that doesn’t exlude the fact that the movie triggered my PTSD.
