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

You could even argue that this is for the fans too, since it gives them a possibility to actually see this in theatres, in full glory and greatness, instead of in home (watching films in home can never be as good an experience) I've voiced this opinion often, but I disagree about that. I usually ha...

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

Not talking about the spinoffs, since they are just that, spinoffs, but - unrealistic how? Edit: Also, the Pilots are hardly average teens in any case. This kind of depends on the episode/movie, but lots of the time the characters just look like models in their 20s (so do many of the figures). And ...

Re: Khara's lack of marketing of 3.0+1.0: a lack of respect?

Back to social media, looks like a figure skater is going to use the music from Thrice Upon A Time ’s opening for their next performance. That’s pretty cool! I look forward to seeing what moves are done to that awesome music. I read the interview with him and Megumi Ogata (it was sort of understand...

Re: Khara's lack of marketing of 3.0+1.0: a lack of respect?

By the WHO's current figures (using crude mortality), it's 30-40 times higher than seasonal flu. You may consider that mild, but I think it's worth being concerned about. Of course, I may be biased by the fact that I am in the demographic for which the disease is hugely more dangerous - I may be ol...

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

I just don't get how people see the Eva characters, especially in some of the weird spinoffs, as realistic depictions of teens. I taught a class of 14/15 year olds last year, and yeah, they're kids. The story of Eva, at the end of the day, is made for adults. I related to some of the characters when...

Re: Will 3.0+1.0 still be a 2020 film or will it now be 2021?

I have a feeling they might do that. I'd say this whole situation has shown that the future is unpredictable and I would try to release it ASAP. But maybe it's important for them to release it in that time frame. Hope they are happy with it since the first supposed released was "ruined" by...

Already shared my thoughts on that:

I'm more invested right now in denouncing the borderline child porn that is the new Cuties movie on Netflix.

Re: The elephant in the room in the shape of Eva Unit 01

It's funny how you mention that. The 3.0 storyboard book shows a cut of Unit 01's head right after Shinji wakes up in the very beginning of the film but it was removed in the final product. The only time we see actual Unit 01 in 3.0 is the split second after it saves Asuka in space. It's still ther...

Re: The elephant in the room in the shape of Eva Unit 01

∆ Eva-01 is in fact one of the greatest designs I've seen, but it's not what Eva is about. "Removing" 01 from 3.0 showed how the franchise can exist without that symbok (even though 13 looked similar), and how Eva can still be done, but you know, with variety in designs and actually new st...

More Eva would be different stories, just like Rebuild is its own thing. You gotta use concepts with potential like Eva.

Re: Kawoshin Symbolism

Quick comment to address doubts: The spear Kaworu uses is the spear of Cassius. This spear cannot be in the containment unit at the beginning of Q, since it is supposed to be piercing Lilith together with the spear of Longinus. The barrier protecting Lilith's chamber hadn't been opened in 14 years. ...

Re: Kawoshin Symbolism

Maybe Kaworu is really aware that his in a movie lol, and knows giving Shinji exposition on all things Seele might have been boring. Because IMO one of the more boring and unnatural scenes in the entire NGE manga is the one in which Kaji explains all these things to Shinji. It is really obvious that...

I'm with OP on this one.
I don't see "evil Kaworu". It would also be less interesting to me than the story being told "at face value".

Re: Khara's lack of marketing of 3.0+1.0: a lack of respect?

∆ Yeah, hiding the time skip was a genius idea. And I also follow thatrule, post film-release stuff I only look at once I have been able to see the film for myself. But there is definitely more to come, it's just that since the release date is unknown, it's as if time had stopped for the marketing. ...
