Re: Antisemitism tangent (split from Kaworu return thread)

Miyazaki was also a socialist in his youth, though, and now is downright reactionary. There are of course many variables that apply to the Japanese political context that we should take into account before making conclusions - Miyazaki is also anti-imperialist, for instance. Again, I'm surprised yo...

Re: Antisemitism tangent (split from Kaworu return thread)

Well, I always thought the Japanese nationalists were a pretty scummy group of people (except Anno, he’s ok), but I doubt they really care much about the Jews. They seem more concerned with fighting against the “white devil,” which the SEELE guys with their stereotypical European features (by Asian...

Re: "Mangazine" Evangelion Review, Circa May 1996

The review calls back to reports they did for issue 39, so now I have to track that one down. I appreciate how even though reviewer realized that ridiculing Shinji for not "getting in the f*cking robot" was dumb. Also, I'm gonna be honest, I was just as zoned out during the teacher's less...

Re: Antisemitism tangent (split from Kaworu return thread)

I see how it can be antisemitic if executed or handled in a certain way, but I must protest the notion that any global cabal, behind the scenes conspiracy etc. is immediately antisemitic. I don't mean to imply that at all. It's just that in this case the global conspiracy is composed of men who are...

Re: Eva Screening From July 1995 (pre-release!) at a US Convention!

o_O

The date misalignment makes this feel like some kind of creepypasta.

Do you have any idea how they might have gotten their hands on this? Was a sample episode distributed to American distributors even before airing in Japan, and one of them leaked it or something?

Re: Do you think Kaworu will come back in 3.0+1.0?

But Eva isn’t really a work like that. You have to look really deep to find anything that could be considered even mildly offensive to any marginalized minority groups, which is why I consider it pointless to try and dig up stuff like that. I'm afraid you're not very versed in offensive stereotypes...

Re: Do you think Kaworu will come back in 3.0+1.0?

It's implicit straight from Jo that there are multiple Kaworu-bodies (just as there were in original Eva!). And now that there can be a second, apparently soulless Rei-body going around talking and having emotional development , the barriers for getting one of those up & running seem even lower....

Re: The Wiki Thread (General)

There should probably be a separate page for Lilith (NTE) as well. Honestly, all major characters in Rebuild (maybe not Aoba or such) should have Shinji Ikari (NTE) pages...

Also "Third Angel" should probably be a disambiguation between Sachiel / Third Angel (NTE) and so on.

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

Seele's dialogue and the like must be a translation convention, presumably for German or English. I can't imagine automated translation software being using for matters of that importance and of that level of secrecy, especially considering that their speech presumably will contain lots of Seele-rel...

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

Use "avatar" if you want, but the whole Rei-Lilith relationship never felt very avatar-like to me. There are enough variations on avatars in Hinduism, but the Rei-Lilith relationship isn't in them. Very well, I'm not going to insist on its usage, I just mean that it provides a ready examp...

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

Yes, it absolutely was. Regardless of the details of the college degree (I think it's probably honorary), it's clear that Asuka is considerably advanced, so that he only thing for Asuka to learn is the kanji (and Japanese literature &c.), but she's not going to learn those by just being thrust i...

That's pretty much spot-on. Krishna even meets Vishnu in one tale and bows before him, but he's capable of turning into Vishnu's full, eldritch "universal form" and at the end of his mortal existence, merges back into Vishnu (that is, when Vishnu doesn't turn up before faithful devotees i...

Rei is a cut-off part of Lilith who acquired her own emotions and thoughts and feelings and ideas through her life experiences.
