Re: Announcement regarding recent forum changes

I detached myself from the commentary project many years ago. I've done absolutely nothing -- not even provided comments -- ever since the planning stages for episode 5. I have no idea what's going on with it anymore. To preempt the possibility of similar such posts, the community should probably kn...

Re: Full title revealed (Evangelion:3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon A Time)

Keep in mind, the film already avoided calling itself 4.0; the working title was "Final". With the change, it's "4.0" phrased as an addition problem. Far from avoiding the superstition, it's implying that three of something are going to combine with one.of something to make... fo...

Re: You Never See Anything Just Once - NTE Edition

You don't know unless you actually look. The visual density and content-richness if NTE means that audience effort will typically be paid off in some way. Meaning, connections, patterns -- it's not as if, for an artist so predisposed, including such things requires such a monumental and begrudging e...

Re: Asuka's phone

"Just the same OS" doesn't even make sense, since these are only cell phones (I hope), not core-based technology like what the monoliths use. There's a cut scene where Seele say outright that what happened to Asuka was planned. This is hinted in the final film in more subtle ways -- and th...

Re: Kaworu and SEELE / Gendo's Plans / Angel Rebirth

Zusuchan : Working with the incomplete NTE series has really made me up my game and learn a lot of new things about media analysis, so, funny enough, I'll be able to revisit the original with a very different perspective now. I've made it one of my long-term goals to deep-dive into NGE anew and see...

Re: Kaworu and SEELE / Gendo's Plans / Angel Rebirth

Kaworu's original body is Adam. All of Adam's body mass turned into energy except for a single egg cell. This egg cell was developed to an embryonic state, smuggled by Kaji to Gendo, and merged into Gendo's hand. We see Adam's body sitting there in Gendo's hand in the exact same episode that a weird...

Re: Kaworu and SEELE / Gendo's Plans / Angel Rebirth

The objective reality of Evangelion increasingly breaks down toward the end of the series. I personally don't think the angel statue has a real Watsonian (in-universe) explanation, and it doesn't need one. There is no way to explain why a statue that resembles one of the highly classified mass produ...

Link is working fine for me. But if something funky is going on with your browser, Googling "Evageeks rules" would have worked.

Re: Kaworu and SEELE / Gendo's Plans / Angel Rebirth

The script just calls it the "angel statue". From a recent post of mine: When they meet, Kaworu is sitting on the neck stub of a mysterious statue, which is later revealed to be a representation of both Adam and of the MP Evas. In both cases, Kaworu is the part that "completes" t...

Re: The Train (Episode 19)

Do you think Toji's train scene could have been a sneaky and discreet way of killing him off without the network needing to know? You see him in the hospital talking to Hikari after the Bardiel incident. He's down a limb but he's not clearly not dead. If that's still not enough, however... HIKARI: ...

Re: Why is S² Works missing songs?

Re: So WTF does Migawari no Shinyu ( 身代わりの侵入) mean?

When you put it in terms of Misato using Shinji as something to project onto -- my brain jumped immediately to her assaulting him with the kiss. Misato effectively becomes her father in that scene, getting mortally wounded while bringing her own "child" to safety, and then passing along th...

Re: So WTF does Migawari no Shinyu ( 身代わりの侵入) mean?

The OP didn't just want the translation; they say "I haven't read a single translation of this phrase that makes any sense in the context of its use in EoE", so they want to know what the title actually MEANS.

Re: Trans* Allegories Within Evangelion

"Shinji is Nadia" gets overplayed a bit. Asuka uses Nadia's character design the same way and one basically never hears about it. Nadia herself is "genben" in the first place, also, since Anno based her off himself. The "genben" elements of Eva, which are part of the br...
