Re: Is no one bothered by the sexualization of the characters in EVA?

^ Well, the entire business of big-hype/big-budget releases was kinda built entirely around theatrical releases and ticket sales. Literally anything else would be considered experimental. That's not to say other studios haven't been experimenting with other films, but the film with the biggest budge...

Re: Is no one bothered by the sexualization of the characters in EVA?

I saw a body pillow of a body pillow. I regret not getting it every time I think of it. I’ve always thought the “fan base sucks” interpretation of the EoE hospital scene to be somewhat faulty. Kensuke is a better expy for otaku than Shinji was ever meant to be anyway. (Kensuke is literally is the bi...

Re: Is no one bothered by the sexualization of the characters in EVA?

I don’t even know if Evangelion body pillows are official merchandise, now that I think of it. I’ve never seen one advertised at Eva stores or anything like that. I’ve always assumed body pillows to be unofficial fan-made products.

Re: Is no one bothered by the sexualization of the characters in EVA?

There are over 7 Billion people in the world; the chances of there existing a 13/14-year-old who snorts coke and talks about anal (sadly) isn't that unreasonable. The last part of my teen years were in a hick part of the American South, and I kept hearing about one young adolescence in her early tee...

Re: Is no one bothered by the sexualization of the characters in EVA?

Eva is actually pretty true to middle schoolers compared to other anime. If you want a crazy example of “aged up” anime middle schoolers, consider Revolutionary Girl Utena , where the characters are stated to be middle schoolers while looking and acting like what middle schoolers imagine 18-year-old...

Re: Official "Hello/Goodbye" Thread!

Was Eva your first anime? That'd be one hell of an initiation. (Mine was Akira, so I kinda know what that can feel like.)

Re: Khara's lack of marketing of 3.0+1.0: a lack of respect?

Honestly, when things do get better and cinemas become safe, studios need to really hype the hell outta their movies. I know I'm in the demographic that will gladly sit in my favorite theater once this all blows over, but I do wonder how many people will happily fall out of habit of going to the cin...

Re: Is no one bothered by the sexualization of the characters in EVA?

"Is no one bothered by the sexualization of the characters in EVA?" I guess it depends on what said sexualization is trying to say. Like, teens are horny, dude. To create media that expects teens to be innocent, sexually sterile creatures with no hormonal urges seems insidious and straight...

Re: QMisato (knowingly???) spreads a myth about Gendo raping Rei

^ Right, yeah. Most people think of that only in the sexual sense, which makes sense since that's the more dangerous/prevalent form of that behavior. And, again, that's not to deny that Gendo performed a sexually abusive act towards Rei, but that was more of a means to an end, and not the end goal i...

Re: QMisato (knowingly???) spreads a myth about Gendo raping Rei

Lavinius , you asked what separated grooming from parenting. In that context, I kinda meant "for Rei's wellbeing" as in how parents typically raise their children with the expectation that their children will outlive them. Gendo isn't making decisions for Rei that will benefit her in the ...

Re: QMisato (knowingly???) spreads a myth about Gendo raping Rei

^ Well, I feel like if Gendo was a pedophile that Anno would have had some things to say about pedophelia through that story element, ya know? He would have made that a larger story element and then not have given Gendo a sympathetic scene before his “death” in EoE. We’ve seen how Anno deals with IR...

Re: QMisato (knowingly???) spreads a myth about Gendo raping Rei

Well, he didn’t tell her the truth about her identity. I agree. I think that’s the reason why Rei spends as much time as she does questioning her identity and her existence. I would say Gendo is a child groomer because he spent much of his time with Rei preparing her for an action that was entirely ...

Re: QMisato (knowingly???) spreads a myth about Gendo raping Rei

I don’t know if I’d say we never see Gendo sexually molest Rei. The scene in EoE where Gendo grabs Rei’s boob, sticks his hand inside Rei’s boob, then wandering his hand all the way down to her womb .... :cringe: Yeah, that’s obviously sexually abusive. As for Gendo being controlling, I feel like th...

Re: 3.0+1.0 production status on soundtrack before delay

I thought it was already known/public knowledge that the music for Shin Eva wasn't completely finished, and that Sagisu's instrumentalists couldn't play together during quarantine.

Re: Trans* Allegories Within Evangelion

Shinji definitely challenges gender roles, so anyone who also challenges gender roles (including trans people) would certainly find him a tad more relatable than the many characters in media who don't. Honestly, there are a lot of things cis-guys need to be doing anyway that they don't because it's ...

Re: Kawoshin Symbolism

^ Thanks for clarifying! I wonder what happened with the spear that was stuck in Eva Unit 01, then. If Wille doesn't have it, then I wonder if it was pulled before Unit 01 was somehow launched into space. (Maybe Shinji and Unit 01 were still used for N3I business after Eva Ha had ended???)
