Re: How do you feel about grown ups watching anime?

Not all anime is teenage ecchi... I avoid that stuff like the plague, and there's a lot of it. I am also suitably offended by sexualised fanart. But I am also aware that my sensibilities are less easily offended by natural depictions of sexuality within a story than some people's are. I'm also inter...

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

Higurashi: When They Cry – Gou 4 episodes in. Kind of disappointing how the show is using the same characters but changing the art style; starting everything from scratch and ignoring all the prior character development; focusing on comedy over action and giving the long-term fans no answers over w...

Re: Restructuring the subforums here

There is no dark theme implemented (sorry - it didn't occur to me when I implemented the present theme). It has been suggested that you could try Dark Reader as a workaround - I've not tried it myself, so I don't know how well it works in practice. It is time for the forum software to be updated aga...

Re: That picture again...

I don’t see the point of analyzing these images. They deleted them on the Renewal release for a reason. But before that they published them, presumably also for a reason... Actually, what interests me in regard to that is that they are pretty much the only thing missing from the combined bluray and...

Re: Announcement regarding recent forum changes

Remember that Eva Monkey is the moderator of r/evangelion...

In other news, Sachi has been raised to the administrator role to help with the rejuvenation of the site; he will continue with this work in the background rather than prominently, and his work in the Discord will continue unaffected.

Re: A request to administration.

None. In any case, discussing delays is only to be expected, pointless though it is; and it's not led to any contentious talk about the handling of the pandemic in certain countries.

Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media

The only reason people here understand the plot is because they've spent the better part of 7 years obsessively looking at every frame of the movie in a search for clues. Some people are still doing that with the series. But it's not relevant; most people who get it ( Q , that is), got it on first ...

It's one of the films in the collection of 34-odd shorts directed by people in Khara to show the variety of their skills and styles. It was curated by Anno under the title of Japan Animator Expo.

Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media

It's been suggested (but I don't know the source without searching) that some of the imagery in the short until You come to me comes from a discarded ending of Q. Also some of the story board images in the background of Shiro Sagisu's Peaceful Times petit film.

The other problem is that he calls them "screws", but really almost all of them are "bolts". A bolt is also called a machine screw. Some engineers split the terms by usage such that if it's used with a nut (and the nut is turned for tightening) it's called a bolt, whereas if it'...

You may be surprised to know that not everyone agrees with this... (also that much of the supposed evidence relies on the ADV translation rather than the Japanese original).

碇真嗣 is Ikari Shinji

I find it interesting that the drawing puts Ikari (surname) alongside Asuka (personal name).

I see your point (actually I once worked in a fusion research lab for a short time). However, I find it hard to see this usage as an intended reference to a tokamak inside Ramiel!

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

Although mostly inconsequential in terms of the whole story to come, the first episode of Yashahime was a decent link to the previous Inuyasha series, and I am hopeful for good things to come.

Another consideration in setting a firm date is simply not knowing the future. At the start of the pandemic, the 25th Bond film was delayed, and they announced a new date in November. Well, guess what, they needn't have bothered, because they've now realised they have to put it off again, so it has ...
