Re: Khara's new guidelines for Eva fanwork

There's absolutely no reason to do this instead of the usual anime industry grey zone tolerance policy they have followed so far if they don't mean to act on it. I think Khara wants to legitimize fan works officially within acceptable limits. Hence they need to clarify the limits - and at least some...

Re: Evangelion's 25th annivesary

I have made a topic for Anno's greetings on this anniversary on the Rebuild subforum. Here's the text: With passing of 25 years since the airing started, and with 5 years spent in creation process even prior to that, I feel the passage of time is fast indeed. That from writing the first Proposal do...

Re: Original Episode outlines from Evangelion Proposal

These have been discussed previously - but keeping in mind the most recent thread is literally 10 years old I think it's fine to continue the discussion in this thread. The table is clean! Rest of the material in Proposal makes it clear that while Eva was in many ways written as it went along there...

Re: Yuko Miyamura wants to rape Rei (Animage 1996 Anno x Miyamura discussion)

There's 8-10 years worth forum history behind here, Berserker. Of course you wouldn't be aware of that background and that's ok.

I did make this thread as clickbaity haw haw that's gross but kinda funny Chit-Chat topic, however. Too bad people with baggage had to ruin it.

Re: Yuko Miyamura wants to rape Rei (Animage 1996 Anno x Miyamura discussion)

Frankly, the substantial, serious material in that conversation sounds like it could be a goldmine of information not otherwise available in the West and I'm really curious to know what else is in there. Yeah, they'd certainly be profitable to TL. I guess I'll get around to it eventually, like Feli...

Re: Yuko Miyamura wants to rape Rei (Animage 1996 Anno x Miyamura discussion)

Not everything out there is even that relevant, even if it is well known. This and other interviews are already mentioned and/or referenced in the wiki and/or gwern's. This is mildly related to Eva but hardly essential. Many interviews like these are mostly Anno et al having fun, often drunk, and n...

Re:

This isn't even "mod mode", but an honest question: Is this kind of comment necessary ? :uhh: Miyamura shouldn't be "shamed" for having done adult work before her seiyuu career took off. "Sasuga amateur JAV actress" just means how you'd translate it stereotypically: As...

Yuko Miyamura wants to rape Rei (Animage 1996 Anno x Miyamura discussion)

In one of those (drunken) post-series conversations between Anno and Miyamura she made it clear just how stereotypically 'Japanese' and un-PC their sex drives are. Pretty based. Sasuga amateur JAV actress. This exchange is an excerpt from much longer discussion. It took place after TV series had bee...

Re: Against "Rebuild is Anti-Rei Pro-Asuka" conspiracy theory

I can translate that if wanted, but I'm pretty sure that whole interview has been translated before. It's the one where Anno talks about miscalculating regarding Rei by having her character arc reach pinnacle too early in ep 6 and them him literally forgetting about her (for a while), as what had in...

Apparently some extremely uncharitable (towards Anno and other creators of Evangelion) and ludicruous theories about post-EoE development of Eva franchise being a massive conspiracy against Rei and her fans and in favor of Asuka and her fans have been spawned in the seething post-Q Rei fan haunts on...

Anno realized how easy it is to become a cult leader. However, the problem is that human beings also cannot ...
