I'd recommend Mr. Tines' method and advice. Dreamweaver is all well and good, but being able to understand and manipulate the code yourself (and remove all the junk code Dreamweaver or Publisher etc. puts in of its own accord) isn't difficult at the basic level, which is all you ...

I can't really explain in mere words just why I found the series so captivating. I suppose the best I can do is say that it taught me a few things about myself that I wasn't willing to believe until I saw it in this (Anno's) creation... heard it from someone else's mouth, so ...

Although he's putting himself into the character of Shinji... I think just about everyone can relate to some facet of Evangelion . To me, he basically lays out the dilemmas of the human condition: the nature of insecurity, the nature of bonds, the struggle to find a reason to be. With it I think...

MidtownComics have it. Type "Evangelion" into the search and check the bottom of the page it offers, it should be the last entry.

'Course, anyone willing to jump into a giant robot and battle giant assailiants at the risk of their own person without a moment's thought to "why am I doing this?" I'm more likely to think an idiot than a hero, but that's just me. Without a moment's thought? Shinji &q...

Personally, I'm inclined to think of Shinji more as a hero, but that's because I also tend to think of traditional 'heroic' qualities in storytelling as being somewhat unrealistic, and most people I know acquainted with Eva agree Shinji is one of the more realistic and 'human'...

I can happily watch both; which one I do depends on my mood. Although the English dub of Eva is IMO pretty good, I prefer the Japanese. Many of the literal meanings of lines in the show are subtly different between the two, and I prefer to get as close to the original meaning as possible by watching...

I was thinking of a picture of the MP Evas having a gigantic tea-party in the vein of Coolidge's dog paintings. It's probably the lack of sleep. :shock:

However, all I really came up with was this.

They actually have a complete digestive tract (demonstrated rather gruesomely in EoE), though we never get to see its tail-end... You're referring to the harpies disembowelling Eva 02...? They do have mouths, teeth, and tongues... but do we actually see them ingesting anything? These mo...

I wouldn't really call them "simplistic", being as they have all of the same muscles and various other anatomical components (head nonwithstanding) as we do. Just being Evas (and gods, and all ;) ), they are constrained somewhat to an idealized (if somewhat elo...

Certainly there is some greater meaning to this. There's a comparison being made. It may have little to do with her relationship with Gendo, but it must mean something. I always thought it was a reference to Ritsuko's treatment of Shinji (on their first meeting) as little more than ...

It still came as a disconcerting shock compared to what it was SUPPOSED to come out looking like. >_< Interestingly, a friend of mine saw the sculpture in person and made a comment similar to what Hexon.Arq said earlier, that the sculpture had a somewhat "primitive" or "tribal" ...
