Re: EvaGeeks Forum Rules & Regulations

Sometimes I wonder why we have all those fancy regular expression capabilities in programming languages, but they don't get used in the kind of situations where they would be a definitive plus... Some people, when confronted with a problem, think "I know, I'll use regular expressions." No...

I'm more inclined to pre-emptively deprecate the use of the affix "-cel" which is showing signs of losing connection with its original coinage and becoming this decade's generic indicator of demographic.

Re: EvaGeeks Forum Rules & Regulations

The word-filter functionality in the forum software is geared towards removing the seven words you couldn't say on TV or the modern-day equivalent thereof, and doesn't handle the case where the deprecated slang is applied as an affix. At best it would locate just the affixed words and replace them i...

Re: Where did Yui merge?

I'm confused that Ritsuko was part of the failed rescue mission of Yui, which resulted in the creation of Rei, yet Ritsuko's mother didn't know where Rei came from :???: While explaining the salvage operation, Ricchan says There was an accident before I joined Nerv. I heard that my mother was there...

Re: SSSS Gridman - Studio Trigger (2018)

I don't really want to invest in streaming services. Crunchyroll, at least, offers an ads-supported mode with no subscription required -- there are some limitations, like a very few shows are subscriber only, and there's a one week delay on airing shows -- but it's enough for the disposable enterta...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

Having spun it out until the Spring season resumed, I finally finished Fist of the Blue Sky : Regenesis , which was a decent enough hokey martial arts fest, with new ultimate techniques being handed out almost every episode. On the down side, you do have to simply ignore the sudden retcon of the mag...

Just to remark that the sentiment that Yui was the villain of the piece is fairly common.

On a side note, GNR must have had an absurdly low density.

I kinda want to get a sense of the community that believes in this kinda thing first.

I'll just point at all the "What the hell have they done to Asuka???" posting here from the '09-'10 period as an "at what cost?" refutation of the theory.

Go back to 09, and you'll see a fair bit of negative reaction to Ha as well -- like thread/11561/Debate-the-quality-of-Rebuild-here-1/ and its sequel.
