An Older Version of Eva's Lore

Eva has many strengths, but strict consistency isn't one of them. The Human Instrumentality Project glimpsed as late as episode 17- a race against time, completed before the Angels win, with little relation to the Evas- seems quite different from the Instrumentality finally seen in either version of...

I hate this; the purple legs on the plugsuits are gorgeously stylish. Can r*build get any worse??

Re: QMisato (knowingly???) spreads a myth about Gendo raping Rei

Nah. She'd probably be the sort of wicked stepmother that resents the kids as remnants of the previous wife. We don't know how Ritsuko happened but given that the father was never in the picture & that Naoko ended up neglecting her in favor of her career she was probably an accident. Granted we...

Re: That picture again...

I've always rorschached that as being a picture of Adam being excavated & experimented on- the white sphere in the center, beneath the crane, is his head, and you can see his shoulders to either side. That also would explain the snow, and the weird structures all over. I don't have much if any c...

Re: QMisato (knowingly???) spreads a myth about Gendo raping Rei

Regarding Naoko, she absolutely did not raise Rei. Gendou only introduces Rei to her after Rei is considerably grown, walking & talking. Naoko certainly didn't raise her before that point. She also has no understanding of who Rei is or where she came from. And when she and Rei talk later, it's p...

Re: Restructuring the subforums here

It's reasonable. I would rename "Evangelion TV Series Discussion" to "Neon Genesis Evangelion Discussion", which reads a lot better.

Re: Dante's Divine Comedy and Evangelion

I guess you could argue that's not true obedience, but the point is that Kaworu is unhealthily obsessed with Shinji and would do whatever Shinji wanted, while neglecting pretty much everything and everybody else. Exactly how he came upon the impression Shinji would like the Human Instrumentality Pr...

Re: DUNE

I do wish they had cast Middle Eastern actors to play the Fremen though... that doesn't sit right with me. There isn't any particular reason to imagine that the Fremen must be ethnically Middle Eastern any more than they should be ethnically Circassian or ethnically Japanese (in truth, there's no r...

Re: Is no one bothered by the sexualization of the characters in EVA?

@Lavinius: I don't think this discussion reduces down to the question whether or not it is okay to jack off to either character; that's part of the topic, for sure, but the dispute over what art is allowed to do seems to take precedence. My point is that the only reason I can suppose that art would...

My point is that it's the underlying, implicit dispute here, which no one is actually addressing because they either consider the answer so obvious or consider it too awkward to address.

Re: Is no one bothered by the sexualization of the characters in EVA?

Link? Yes, that is a closely related question, though it has even more interesting subquestions- for instance, is it morally acceptable to jack off to 17-year-old Link considering that he apparently still has the same mental experience as 10-year-old Link in spite of his advanced physical age, and ...

Re: Dante's Divine Comedy and Evangelion

You may be right; I don't exactly know. It did seem to me like Rei in EoE deeply disagreed with Shinji wanting to end the world, but even though she asked him questions and did "prod" him, she still was ready to accept 3I. Of course, it's possible she may have known the necessity of such ...

Re: Dante's Divine Comedy and Evangelion

I knew that pagans were not allowed to go further than Limbo simply due to having been non-Christians, but I wasn't entirely sure if Kaworu, an Angelic character even in NGE, could really be qualified as such. But in NTE, I do imagine him being something like Virgil. I think his whole manipulation ...

Cool finds, Lavinius! I take that you've actually read The Divine Comedy , so whatever you have to offer is obviously more substantial info than I could provide. I'm still glad I managed to be of some help. It is my favorite book of all time. I thought about Kaworu being Virgil's NTE counterpart, b...

In the first place, I should remind of the use of the term Malebolge to refer to layers within the Black Moon in NGE (these are the regions of the Eighth Circle of Hell, of liars, fraudsters, thieves &c.). Within Rebuild we also have Cocytus, Acheron, and Limbo as regions of the Third Angel's co...

Re: Is no one bothered by the sexualization of the characters in EVA?

The prime example of that would be the Shinji Ikari Raising Project manga. Yes, it’s teen oriented, so it would make some sense. But the series and franchise have been around for over 20 years, and most of viewers from back then are all adults now. I think that the expected & proper way for an ...
