When I use the word favorite, it implies that I enjoyed it the most, which I would not agree to. I would rank it as one of the best animes I have seen, but Evangelion is one of those works that I have to say is incredibly subjective. JesuOtaku put it best by saying, "It's a must see but not...

I agree the Dec 30 is just a placeholder so Amazon doesn't cancel their orders. I know I'm in the minority but I prefer to listen to shows in my own language. I'm fairly used to subtitles but I just prefer to get to understand the entire experience and not have to dedicate my full attent...

Western Individualism vs Eastern Collectivism

When we think about a lot of the main western complaints about evangelion, a lot of it ties to what traits we value in the west, mainly that of individualism. This causes a lot of the potency of the message of Evangelion to be lost in cultural translation. I think this can seen most strongly in two ...

In some ways, you can see how this incident proves Anno has deep respect for the English speaking fanbase of Evangelion and wants to ensure we get to experience the most accurate translation of the movie. That being said, it's still terrible for Funi on a financial and reputation standpoint. May...

Amazon Auto Canceling Eva 3.33 preorders.

So I got an e-mail from good ole amazon recently which said I had to go make my order active for Eva 3.33 otherwise they were going to automatically cancel the order. I find this hilarious and a potential PR/financial problem for Funi. Imagine how many people simply ignore an e-mail like that and en...

I don't think it's liking it or not. But they were cracking up in the theatre, and this apparantly is a problem because like many fans Khara wants their audiences to silently take in the film while being all super srs or something. But that's unlikely to happen. Even if its dubbed by A ...

Probably being the root of this change: for me, the fact that absolutely everyone of a minimal importance in the show was revealed as completely fucked up in the head was, frankly, completely surrealist,even Kaji was revealed to be a self-loathing, borderline death seeking emotional wre...

For me when Giant Naked Reis hand passes through Maya's body and she freaks out that makes me chuckle for some reason. Just the way she reacts is so funny.

This. With the change of setting, 3.0 also operated a shifting by casting away most of the introspection and "navel gazing" (you don't have a single scene of Shinji introspecting on how he run away from pain or don't try to understand his father...) to focus on what's ...

^^^^ Sooo, you both agree and disagree with me? I'm still not quite sure that I follow. Also, just because storyboards say one thing doesn't necessarily mean that that should have been the end all, be all result. After all, filmmaking is a collaborative process. As for the whole Rei and Asu...

If Anno would made a 2-hour-walking through the red desert movie where in the end Asuka punches him, i would fly to Japan and kiss his god damn feets. This is something only Evangelion could do. I'd personally love the movie if we get to see Rei II again in the movie, perhaps during Instrumenta...

Which is what most soldiers react to constant life threatening situations IRL, and we're talking about grown up men here (well more or less, since many enlist at 18), so imagine how a teenager must feel. The cliché of the teen going to life threatening situations and taking all the stre...

I think it would be interesting if FINAL focuses more on the action than Shinji's psychological issues. I think in general although this Rebuild Shinji has many of the same problems, he is far more assertive and willing to take action than his previous incarnation. Too much introspection on Shin...

Does FINAL even have a chance?

FINAL has a lot to live up to. It has the entirety of the TV series, the previous Rebuild films, and especially the opus magnum End of Evangelion. Can FINAL live up to EoE? Do you think fans will even be willing to give FINAL a chance? The other movies might have been forgiven for having to build up...
