They were almost certainly built for pilot functionality, then Seele just had them outfitted with Kaworu Dummy Plugs.

Another early sci-fi "influence" in Eva would be the connected short stories of Cordwainer Smith. They take place in the same future history and are collectively known by the name of humanity and para-humanity's shadow government: " The Instrumentality of Mankind ". Not so mu...

I'd say you can take this one all the way back to the "I am I" poem/speech/mantra. Rei was who she was because of the links she formed with others, and back to Ramiel, because she was bonded to the eva. If we're to believe Kaworu that the ATF is really the "light of the soul&q...

I like this chic. VHS rocks for some reason. The colors are truer to life/more vibrant on VHS tape than on DVD. That, and they just make me feel like a kid again. :boingy: Are you just saying that because you didn't like seeing Eva switched to the digital color palate in Platinum? For that reas...

My First copies of D&R and EoE were Chinese. The upside is that I actually got to see Rebirth because of it, instead of just a copypasta of the First 45 min of EOE. No thanks to Manga™.

I am of the opinion that Evangelion will be seriously studied one day in the future... to an annoying and obnoxious end.

I don't like that he says Anno made an error with the second half of the movie. This is pure semantics, but error should mean that he tried to do something and failed, not that he succeeded in doing something that you didn't personally like. I have always felt Eva was made with a specific au...

Wonder how many people who saw it before 2000 got excited/dreaded that year? I remember the day of Second Impact. Not that I expected anything... Is there a reason we are misspelling anniversary? Any way... Woo Hoo! Fifteen years! I can't wait for 20, which incidentally will be in the year 2015

Komm Susser Tod is ridiculously easy to "recognize" as far as its structure etc. goes; it's some Pachelbel's Kanon mixed with Hey Jude From Kanon (to my ear) carries over certain chord progressions and passages, e.g that organ in beginning. Arrangement itself is pretty muc...

I wish the the Akira DVD release had had the previous dub. I miss pointing out Donatello's VA to people.
