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

I like the original Higurashi anime and have the disks on my shelf (they were one the harder sets for me to find when I was looking). But so far (and I'm behind in the watching) I have found the new version disappointing in comparison.

Re: Shin Eva's Indefinite Delay Support Group

Some people have speculated on a close re-release date, based on a new date given somewhere for the One Last Kiss CD. However, I have just had notification from CDJapan that no new date has been set for the release of that CD.

It's called copyright...

I'll continue to experiment with it.

You know to embed the font in the video, right?

I do a fair bit of this, if you need help.

There are times when a quiet mention (without a link) may seem appropriate. But making a conversation about it turns into condoning piracy by another route. Best to remain quiet and be discreet.

I can't see what you would gain over using ASS subs to position things around the screen so they can overlap in time without interference.

Re: Shin Eva - New Trailer (12-24-20)

It seems to me clear from the trailers that Shinji will pilot again. However, the idea that he might not is not absurd in itself - indeed, I used it in my own fic (quick, read it now before it's superseded!)

Given the fact that they've had extra time (or even without considering that) to prepare this stuff, this is sheer incompetence.

The fact that it's Japan-only, and obscure in the West is neither here nor there. The West has never been the audience that Evangelion is aimed at.

No vaccine is perfect. The coronavirus vaccines are all (so far) either as good as could be expected or better.

Re: Trans* Allegories Within Evangelion

I'd go further, and say that Shinji not conforming with masculine stereotypes, whether in his own mind or simply in the eyes of some others, is just that - and is not in any way related to a possibility of his being trans. There is not the slightest indication that he has gender dysphoria.
