Kendrix, I wish you'd go troll somewhere else. Thank you.

A.T. Fish, please bear in mind the fact that all things Evangelion are works of fiction. Thus, anything is possible.

Indeed!

I 'm hoping so as well, bobbyfischer's ghost . I'd love to see a more intellectual facet of Asuka Shikinami Langley 's persona, as opposed to the mood-oriented way she's been presented so far. StratoSakuya...AF , thank you for those insights! Things do get complicated, don't...

Well....

I f "captain" is merely an honorary title and not a military rank, as riffraff11235 suggests (and I wondered), why do others seem impressed by Asuka Shikinami Langley being a captain? Nobody pipes up and says "Oh, that doesn't really mean anything" or "We're...

Ah, yes....

M r. Tines , your suggestions are greatly appreciated. But, what happens if one is too lazy to fuss with all that editing? *hides* Seriously, though, I wish I was literate in Japanese. But I'm not, so I'll have to look into the whys and wherefores of subtitle editing--or else be satisfied w...

Captain Langley

F orgive me if this seems superficial, tangential, unimportant, etc., but it's something that's confused me ever since Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance hit the street. Asuka Shikinami Langley is referred to as "captain" by her superior, Misato Katsuragi . Langley , a ...

Nekomimi cap

I like those images of Asuka and her nekomimi cap! I've already begun searching the Web for a real-life version of that cap, but to no avail. Alas! Q: How long will it be before some corporation begins manufacturing that very cap? Q: Who might the manufacturer be? Q: What do the badges/pins/wha...

I wouldn't mind if Funimation re-dubbed the series and all subsequent audio-visual releases, provided they got Asuka 's name right. Apparently, regarding Evangelion: 2.22 You Can (Not) Advance , a decision was made by Funimation to pronounce characters' names as they would be pr...

Dubya

U ntil recently, I preferred subtitles over dubs. But my eyes ain't what they used to be and reading the constantly-shrinking subtitles has become problematic. Hence, of necessity I've fallen back on dubbed stuff. I really wish there was some way for end users to make subtitles larger! :asu...

Greetings from Pemular VII!

H ello there, folks! I was here briefly a couple of years ago. It's about time I tried this skin-thickening therapy once more. Neon Genesis Evangelion and its subsequent manifestations are sufficiently interesting to warrant a second go-round at dodging this board's infamous blivets, but I&...

I agree with you, Allemann - although U.S. visual-media corporations have certainly gone to the "prequel"/sequel well much too often in recent years, due to corporate timidity and lack of talent. Perhaps the same is true in Japan, but I really don't know. Anyway, I was thinking more of...

Yay!

Sachi and Oz, this is good news indeed! (I wouldn't mind mecha so much if the machines looked futuristic and didn't employ so much human anatomy. Machines with faces, especially, don't impress me.)
