For the record, Shinto myth tells that Japan was created by the gods thrusting a sword into the ocean, and when it was pulled out, the drops that fell back into the ocean became the islands of Japan. This might not be intended to convey creation, but it may just be a visual aesthetic that is cultura...

I must say those were good reads,and the third theory of the first one I would say is the one I have the best grasp on. Indeed. It is the theory that I endorse the most, as it leaves a sense of hope at the end of the series. As for Rei's death, it is one of my favorite scenes in the anime. Rei ...

I am mostly curious as the reason for the view, since I really cannot comprehend it. If Evangelion is a puzzle as Anno suggests, then that would mean it has a solution. So, if it has a solution, why hasn't anyone solved it yet? Because the information that is the key to solving it is withheld f...

...is there some reason why NGE shouldn't eventually make sense? Certainly not 100%. You know my opinion, I feel that Evangelion is a fundamentally incomprehensible thing. That is my opinion, I'm sticking to it, and it's not something that arguing over will ever change, and the argument...

We all like to think we're at some kind of transition between stage three and four, but the reality is we're all just osscilating back and forth between two and three. True true. But what about those people convinced they are firmly in stage four? Originally posted on: 22-Feb-2006, 05:55 GMT

If people lack priority enough to actually find this kind of "discussion" important -- by all means, let the flame wars continue. So, you're saying that people are arguing because they aren't paying your theories enough attention? I think my brain just did a 360. http://www.evagee...

** Gee, why is Asari-san's statement popping into my head again? How interesting that Eva Monkey is the one hosting this, too. That's not ironic Rachel. Irony is the opposite of what is expected. Asari speaks of not getting consumed in every minor detail to the point where you don't enj...

So ANYWAY - Eva Monkey: Any response to my earlier questions? In the previous discussion, it seemed to me that Rachel was advocating that the things that we consider "flaws" are in fact very deliberate. I personally feel that Rachel gives Anno TOO much credit. Yes, Anno is very creative, ...

When the Eva Monkey agrees with me, it's cause for actually praying to whatever gods you believe in. Well, if anyone cracks a joke about the action arc or says that the action arc is sub par, I tend to agree. The episodes did little to advance the plot and there was no great degree of character...

Just because it has flaws doesn't mean that people who want to shouldn't create theories about the show as though it were entirely consistent. Dude, this entire thread and poll is basically you trolling because you don't like the way other people think. For shame. Dude, go away. It'...

Evangelion has flaws, some intentional others not so. Curious. When I think of flaws, I think of them as unintentional, unless someone was maliciously attempting to flaw something. Can you provide an example of an intentional flaw in Evangelion? And also, a possible reason why that intentional flaw...

This is a simple little poll to gauge the opinion of members of this forum. Is Evangelion flawed? In essence, the notion exists that Evangelion is an extremely well thought out creation, without flaws or errors, and that what appears to be error is in actuality very intentional on the part of the pr...

December 31st would be the deadline for proposals. Not complete articles. Although I imagine that the further developed the article the better.
