Re: Is there a theory for why Kaworu didn't get a -nami suffix?

Now I may be attributing to the Japanese what little of nautical culture I know of in the West, but aren't ships and vessels generally considered female? Perhaps Shinji and Kaworu not having the -nami suffix or being named after ships is - in part - due to them being boys? For what it's worth, I thi...

Re: What do you appreciate most about NTE?

On a base level, these are beautiful looking films with stunning soundtracks. Really, I think that the OSTs may objectively be the best parts of NTE. Sagisu has always been brilliant, but something about the new OSTs are incredible. I wish I had the music vocabulary to describe it. On a bit more of ...

Re: Evangelion:3.0+1.0 Trailer 3 Discussion

Definitely hyped, it feels so strange that this is The End. The new plugsuits are great, and the synch implications are real cool. If I'm worried about anything, it's just that, with the exception of the Paris trailer, almost everything we've seen of the film appears to take place at/around the clim...

Re: Rei #6 and the Programmable Human

Very interesting stuff - despite how many times I've watched Q at this point, I never made the observation that ReiQ is likely, if not definitely, actually looking at something else. That she can't see outside, and that what is causing her worries is something within the EVA itself. There's a lot to...

Re: Trailer 2 discussion thread

My suspicions point me to believe it won't be used until the end of the film when [I assume] the Wunder goes down. I suspect the same. You could even throw in some of the good ol' birth imagery Anno loves in there: 01 tearing itself out of Wunder, breaking through those rib-cage-like areas in a cal...

Re: Evangelion Anatomy - Rebuild Edition (Updated 4/3/16)

Great posts, man. The information is laid out really nice.

I do have a question about Null though - when did it get 'revealed'? I hadn't heard about it til now. Do we have any other info on it aside from that sketch?

Re: Why is the fandom more lenient with Rei?

This is despite the fact that she is deeply involved with the conspiracy to end the world, endangers others during most of the fights she's in and is loyal to Gendo to the end of the series. As everyone else has said, her circumstances and situations in life aren't really her choice at all; not unt...

Re: Do people still hate that last movie

A lot of the hate for the film that I see comes from the (related and incorrect) assumptions that: - If a character doesn't act in a way that (the viewer) would act, then the character is badly written/doesn't have character development - If a character makes a decision or action that is not entirel...

Re: Do people still hate that last movie

3.0 is flawed, but still the only one of the three films so far that really seems to justify its existence separate from the original series. Absolutely agreed - and I agree with everything you put in the OP as well. From my first viewing of the movie, it felt so much more in the vein of what I exp...

NGE already had a couple scenes that reminded me of similar scenes in 2001, namely the otherwise innocuous shot of Gendo alone in a plane (on his way to Antarctica IIRC) with someone coming up and striking a chat. And far more clearly, the Seele monoliths. Anyways there's already a page...

A lot of the Anima stuff was really cool - it's off the wall, but in a fun, almost shounen/super robo way. If it's Yamashita's playground and some of the better ideas are fixed and used in Rebuild, I don't mind at all - especially since that's what this thread is more or less abo...

Despite their word, I don't think I'll believe it til I see it. It's been what - nearly 3 years now?

Maybe we'll get some cool extras or something, but I doubt it.

Rei-centric, and set to "Still Alive".

The editing is actually pretty good.

Is that so? Crazy. I once thought the "glyphs-to-keys" thing was coincidence/fan conjecture, but this is way too real.

$330 dollars? Damn.

I mean, we expected it to be expensive, but that's insane. Plus if/when it comes over, we might end up paying more.

This is distressing.
