Re: Why was Shinji strangling Asuka at the end of EoE?

Much of narrative surrounding identity of the individuals points to the self that is in the ego, and seen externally or superficially by others, versus the self that it is hidden behind the ego, and experienced subjectively only by the individual (becoming more accessible as everyone turns into oran...

Re: The Satire of Evangelion

It's rather pointless to try and pin down whether the show "is" or "is not" a deconstruction of Mecha. If very obviously is viewed as such, has tons of commentary around the world critiquing it as such, and is therefore functionally a deconstruction of Mecha. It's a much more int...

Asuka has been begging Shinji to "stand up to her", "man up", treat her as poorly as she treats him for 20-some-odd episodes. After her roaller coaster trip with Singularity, she comes out and gets exactly what she's been asking for. She realizes the explicit masochism of her...

How the hell am I going to develop rich and engaging characters if all they're going to do is sit around and talk about how much all of them want to be girls? And this would be different from 90% of what passes for entertainment today how? Seriously, hits are made from this stuff. I'd look ...

Re: An anti-Christianity interpretation of Eva

the purpose of them is to skew the Christian understanding of symbols and images that are almost exclusively tied to it nowadays, leading to a less biased/partial perception of them No. There's no cultural nor in-world context to base this on. Pure wanking. The show is not about religion. It us...

My only contribution: Rits destroys the dummy system as a tit-for-tat for Gendo taking something from her. It is particular justice to her because he has used her sexually (as she was used by Seele) and because she was a Rei-replacement. Oh, and the loss of her cat is symbolic of her other l...

^ The difficulty with introducing gnosticism to NGE is that there's little indication that gnostic thought (as theme or message) is in NGE. There is traditional Christian symbology and motifs (as well as distinctly Judaic ones), and I'm sure you're aware that gnostic scri...

What Reichu and Aura said, and: I just don't see reading "sin" into the story (if I understand what you mean by "sin"). Sorry to be pedantic, but notice the only people reading "sin" into the situation are the messed up Seele goons. And that makes for an int...

@Grimmjow: It's a bit of a jump to conclude the red substance is SoL LCL - rather, it is more likely human LCL. The red is emblemmatic perhaps with a connection to the Red Earth Purification Ceremony, and the etymology may be related to Adam, but I can't quite see the conclusion that it'...

^ I was referring to the OP, though to be equally critical NGE does not delve into the origins of universe nor life (just Lilith and Adam life). A bit rushed, but I must disagree. The only battle between the SoLs I see can be a war of ideas or a war by proxy - and only as an effect, not as a...
