Re: Last Movie You Watched

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: As a long-time Hunter S. Thompson fan, I was both excited and nervous to watch this film. Thankfully, this was fucking wonderful, a brilliant visual counterpoint to the book that is overflowing with both humor, unsanity and the beginning of actual intriguing points a...

Re: Kawoshin Symbolism

Whether Kaworu manipulated Shinji or not in NGE is a lot more ambiguous/up for debate. There's merit for and proof against both ''Kaworu really is Space Jesus'' and ''Kaworu is evil and manipulative'' in there. But come 3.33, then yeah, the Space Jesus theory does die as far as NTE is concerned. (Th...

Re: Is no one bothered by the sexualization of the characters in EVA?

When it comes to the Rebuilds's sexualization, I'd say 1.11 is more...complicated, but 2.22 is basically what Gendo's Papa said and even more-it's my belief that the entirety of NTE is a meta discussion/reflection/etc. of NGE/EoE and the impact they had, and with that logic, 2.22 becomes the part of...

Re: Is no one bothered by the sexualization of the characters in EVA?

The financial aspect is important, but films being delayed because of money issues isn't exactly an indicator whether the creators of the films made them because of money or not. And Anno has taken a long time with NTE precisely because he wants them to be good. Also, what aspects exactly are you re...

Re: Best Pair: What Eva Characters Do You Ship?

orcot: Ritsuko wants/needs emotional connections, but no-one gives them to her. Judging from Naoko's comments in 21, she probably wasn't a very good mother and neglected her in favor of work. Gendo is someone who gives her that connection and actual romance on top, but it's obvious he doesn't care ...

Happy 14th birthday to Khara, Inc.!

Today, 14 years back, the animation studio of Khara, Inc. was founded and official production of NTE started. It's been a long time and I bet it feels even longer for those here who've been with this site from its humble beginnings. Crazy to imagine that production on NTE was started in 2006, but th...

You mean as in ''More people need to contribute to the commentary'' or ''People need to work on getting the project forward''? Because if it's the latter, then I'm open to helping in whatever way I can.

Re: You Never See Anything Just Once - NTE Edition

Good catch, dzzthink! That is some nice story parallelism right there. (And more proof of the SDAT's importance in NTE.) On another manner, I'll give off these shots. Not exactly parallel, either, but seeing how people are actively posting story parallelism here as well and the nature of the shots/s...

Derantor: I believe Rei was anxious and/or nervous about the upcoming activation test-it didn't go well last time and she doesn't want to disappoint Gendo. I'm also not entirely sure about her being completely unfazed by the happenings in the apartment apart from Shinji holding the glasses. She kin...

orcot: Apologies for taking so long to reply. I also wouldn't consider Shinji's actions here dumb. He isn't actively thinking here ''I'm going to attack Rei's pillars of faith''. He doesn't even know the full extent of Rei's and Gendo's relationship-he's aware that they have one, one that is deeper...
