Re: Impact Events and the People Who Drive Them

This is undoubtedly the most concise interpretation of Evangelion's Impact mechanics that I've ever had the pleasure of reading, but a single unanswered question comes to mind. Why did Seele task NERV to puncture Lilith with the Lance of Longinus? How could this in any way contribute to the Third I...

Re: Emoticons

Christmas may have passed, but the gifts haven't finished yet -- I finally got annoyed enough at the phpBB "no astral characters" limitation, and made a work-around that lets us post the musical symbols relevant to Final -- 1d102 1d107 -- and as a side effect it also allows posting any &q...

Re: YouTube Videos

^ I am surprised about Himiko Toga from My Hero Academia is third in this ranking. I thought she was not so popular, I was wrong. That is absolutely bizarre to me. The character holds no appeal for me whatsoever, and there are numerous other appealing choices in the show (Ochako's at least on the l...

With Asuka in particular. I could never understand why people thought she was obnoxious until I saw the ADV dub. Once I saw it everything clicked.

Re: [DOUJINSHI] Re-Take

But EoE conveyed that message much better, without all the Asushin shipping bullshit and constant character bashing. That's why I get so frustrated whenever someone says that "ReTake fixes EoE" or "ReTake is better than canon," because the actual canon was able to convey the mes...

Re: Godzilla & Kaiju General!

Not films, film. We assume Godzilla vs. Kong will be released because it’s already done — they finished filming it before KotM was even released, so there’s no sense in dropping it now. I don’t think anyone has any illusions about seeing more Legendary Godzilla flicks after this one, though.

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

Akudama Drive: It started out as a decent cyberpunk pastiche. Now, seven episodes in, it’s gotten kind of screwy. Dunno if it can unfuck itself at this point, and I’m not even sure I wanna stick around to watch it try. But I’ll give it another episode at least.

Nah. The fic will still be posted on Paul’s website until he decides otherwise, so the advisal is still good. Only difference is that any potential updates will go both here and there.

Re: Was it a mistake to put Asuka in the same class as Shinji?

@Lavinius: You are right, Asuka needed to be actually engaged at her level, but still, having contact with adolescents her age is valuable for her. If she hadn't gone to school, she also wouldn't have met Hikari, the only true friend she has in Japan (who isn't also a pilot or otherwise related to ...

Re: Death String Quartet, Quantum Rei, and Misconceptions (split from General)

Hmm, mayhaps. I don't know much about avatars, but aren't they traditionally more like the incarnations of deities than well, whatever Rei's and Lilith's relationship is? Well, if we're gonna get technical: Avatar literally means "descent, alight, to make one's appearance",[3] and refers ...

Re: Your favorite scene in Evangelion?

Easy choice for me: Asuka’s final fight. It remains a triumph of animation in a technical sense, and it has so much going on thematically that I can’t help but love it. That final scene, of a fourteen-year-old kid grasping the sun and vowing to kill her immortal enemy right before he cuts her down ....

Re: Was it a mistake to put Asuka in the same class as Shinji?

I don’t think so? I mean, school is about socialization as much as it is about learning, and Asuka arguably needs even more of that than a typical girl her age. Also, school gives her something to do during the day, as well as a venue for interacting with/relating to her fellow pilots. Take her away...
