Re: What does the "friend" functionality do?

I believe you can use it when filtering PMs.

Also, it can be used to highlight posts by friends (opposite of mute), but I think this depends on the theme - which I didn't know when I implemented our theme, so it may do nothing in our case!

Re: Debate the quality of Rebuild here. [2]

I'm using it as an example for why a lot of people don't take defenses of 3.0 seriously, because it all starts sounding the same after a while. Defences against the same repeated criticisms do tend to sound repetitive, true! IF "their goal was to make a movie that would captivate general audie...

I can't disagree; the annoyance factor does reduce a bit with time, though (and somewhat more so in the film).

Re: Jimmy's fics/doujins/videos/etc

The last chapter of my post-Q fic ends with the sentence: "Shinji closed his eyes for a few moments, while he fondled Bardiel's ears". You can see the context in the final chapter here . I thought it would be amusing to see whether other people could find a way to use this sentence, so I s...

Re: 3.0+1.0 Cinema or straight to DVD?

Writing to an independent cinema would not do a lot. These films still have to be licensed and translated. Just keep an eye out for the LovesAnime festival circuit when lockdown ends, they will almost certainly show it at some point. I imagine that independents band together to be able to show thin...

Re: Sadamoto fighting on Twitter, denying war crimes and discriminating Koreans, possibly falling out with Khara

To be blunt, I'd be interested (and no, I don't wish for it to happen!) to see how well some of the high-minded criticism in this thread would stand up if the people making it were in the actual position of living in a country run by a tyrant being attacked by another country run by a tyrant. It's e...

Re: Shin Evangelion beats franchise record for the first day at the box office

I have no knowledge about Demon Slayer. Briefly, and without deriding this thread... is it worth watching? I enjoyed the series, but I wouldn't say it's perfect; well worth watching, though. I took a couple of episodes to get really comfortable with the visual style, but then the animation really i...

I watched it and it was vastly different.

Yes, indeed it is. The once fashionable characterisation of it as a sub-Eva ripoff is both inaccurate and lazy.

Re: Why didn't Misato (or anyone) tell Shinji anything in 3.0?

If Shinji had come out before, there would probably have been no need to send Unit 01 into space (as he's the trigger to awaken it and hence cause an impact). And we are told that Shinji was in space, because Kaworu says "welcome back" as he is being returned to Earth.

Re: Why didn't Misato (or anyone) tell Shinji anything in 3.0?

Honestly, my biggest question about 3.0 (and by extension 3.0+1.0) is how different would they have been if Shinji had came out of Unit 01 early. Like, much earlier. Not like a month or few like in NGE but like, let's say 1-2 years later, maybe 3 or 4. If Shinji had come out earlier, he would have ...

Re: Amazon Prime Video release

I kinda recall that Khara approved the Netflix English choices, but I'm not necessarily a reliable source on this. They certainly provided dub and sub scripts (and Netflix then didn't bother to incorporate some last-minute corrections...).

And yet the whole of NGE and EoE was redubbed for the release on Netflix (and many people prefer that version).

Re: GKids releasing NGE Blu-Ray in North America 2021

The PAL/NTSC difference basically applies to DVDs only - Blu-rays do not use either system for their main contents. Those systems are linked to the old analogue broadcasting standards, which is why they differ for different countries. The vertical resolution is 480 for NTSC DVDs, and 576 for PAL DVD...
