Replies: 6

Perhaps the screenplay never answered this precise question, but I can turn it around for an amusing cliché. Gendo got a whole lot more Rei than he was counting on. Essentially, he ran afoul because Rei was too complete by this point, even if just by a little bit. If he had the choice to not have he...

Extreme zoom isn't your fault, so I'm happy to say that finding the photo has to be a 'Master's Level' souvenir worthy of your skill and interest. Great job. Enjoy the rest, and please travel safely.

[Con] AnimeNEXT

The convention is June 8 through 10. I begin this thread with the goal of establishing a meet-up among all interested members. There will soon be an event schedule, but right now a specific time would be random guesswork. Are there some of us already set to attend? :: edit :: Here is the link to a p...

@ Seoul Gamer - Please continue, and develop your views into a realized story. In my mind, the effort you exert is the factor that asserts 'your license' to communicate fan-fiction. By fully and wholly considering the logic of the changes you want to see, you essentially enter into a "c...

Of course, the best practical answer was already contributed. If @ svenge would indulge me extending one other line of reasoning, I would like to submit what I believe to be the most logically consistent answer. N^2. If 'you' are the JSSDF / UN Generals, every Angel needs some thermo(non...

^ @ InstrumentalityOne Wasn't that trailer 'refreshing?' Not bad for a console video game, though. Would these guys agree instead to produce a new Eva title focused on Impact Wars / Section Two? On the other hand, the bad taste of the director / effects designer in removing the lid of th...

The only reservation I would proffer in regards to "Summer Wars" concerns the secondary cultural awareness implied in the plot. The basic nature of Hanafuda is communicated well enough in the script, but the motivation for the acceptance of how the family fits into the nation really makes ...

@ ONIAgent150 - If you want shock, awe and brains splashed on the ceiling, this is the right plan. If you have friends that are human, without super-film-critic powers and / or some serious fandom, what type of experience do you desire for them? My opinion is that a good introduction to NGE, leading...

@ Sachi - Would it be better to think that the strongest grudge that Shinji might bear towards Gendo is 'undefined' only in that he's being blamed for not filling a place in Shinji's life? From there, perceiving all sorts of other bad deeds, such as replacing him with Rei or separati...

Pen-Pen is an unfortunate victim of the editor's knife, I guess. The story never really needed to explain him, and rightly used the time for other characters. If one cares to extrapolate only a little, it is quite clear that Pen-Pen hails from the 'hard ScifFi' roots of the story. I woul...

I just had an inspired moment. Since NME is all about doing it a little different, why should Asuka face the EVA Series? She already seems to be fighting her 'demons' differently. In fact, how come they can't perform some other role, as we might not see them as celebrants during SEELE...

@ Xard - - Late reply - Thank you for the advance warning concerning "Gyo OVA ." Is it perhaps more concise to liken this to the anime exploitation version of the horror film "The Host?" The general description seemed similar to me.

Thank you for getting me to think about this. Here's a way to see it, though we are extending the source material using logic in this case. Does "hilarity ensue?" The premise that Adam - offspring have a core, and it is the resting place of their soul, if fairly strong. In the only ins...

@ TMBounty_Hunter Thanks for an interesting idea, and there is similarity between these recordings. I suspect that the largest part of the similarity is due to the human choices in processing. And my correlary to that, is the assertion that the 2I sounds are studio-manufactured imitations of this: [...
