Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media

You sure about that? Cause I thought that it was agreed that Anno views Rei as a symbol for escapism, and Anno despises escapism than anything else in the world. So I wouldn't be surprised if he just drops a bridge on her and forces Shinji to be with someone else purely because Rei means choosing an...

Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media

Rei not being higher is kind of depressing to me, all things considered. Guess Anno's ploy to tear down Rei in 3.33 to get people to view her like he does (creepy and unsympathetic) while getting people to instead like the two he prefers way more and considers far more worthy of being with Shinji wo...

Re: Release Date: June 27, 2020 (Delayed)

Honestly, I wouldn't mind seeing a late Fall release such as in November or December. Though I wouldn't be surprised if, to my chagrin, it's pushed all the way back to Summer 2021 all because of the Olympics.

Re: AVANT 1 italian analysis & Rebuild's message

Furthermore, it's necessary to see if Anno will use Shinji's guilt in a literal sense (responsibility for the death of human beings) or in a metaphorical sense for fandom, in the sense that killing humanity is Anno's way to show concretely a mistake at the public beyond the fourth wall. The catastr...

Re: AVANT 1 italian analysis & Rebuild's message

Wonder how exactly that message is gonna work though, considering just how far gone Shinji is, what with him screwing things over for billions of people. Like, what he's done and the lives lost as a result of him aren't exactly something one can just brush aside. I know you guys have speculated that...

What's so wrong with Homura from Madoka Magica exactly? For that matter if the audience is supposed to be placed in Shinji's shoes and he is the main character of the story and the one whose development is the most important, why wouldn't the viewer buy into the character of Kaworu, given his strong...

Re: Rei or Asuka?

Yeah, I still don't know. Again, the next film has a lot of ground to cover, and Asuka's relationship with Shinji just hasn't been focused on as much over these past films, and especially not when compared to how it was built up in the original. Why waste screen time on trying to establish a romanti...

Re: "EVANGELION:3.0+1.0 AVANT 1 (from beginning to 10:40) Version 0706" discussion and prediction thread

Well hey, you gotta leave things vague given that it's only a teaser for the full movie. And I'd much rather have a straightforward narrative that is well executed as oppose to something that subverts expectations at the cost of narrative cohesion. Though, I'd be lying if these first ten minutes did...

Honestly, and at the risk of being ridiculed around these here parts, I still feel that there needs to be some sort of followup and closure regarding his relationship with Rei, as that one has been one of the main cores of the Rebuild storyline, as opposed to his relationship with Asuka in the origi...

Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media

Seriously, so many other franchises have continued onwards, and the world has seen so many changes and the like, yet Anno and co still have yet to wrap up the extremely bitter finale of 3.0. That's what really gets me, and has made the whole thing out to be a gigantic and bitter joke to me. I seriou...

Check Kaworu and you'll see you are wrong Kaworu by the way is not weak, is actually one of the strongest characters in the film (but yeah he is not a regular guy ) His will is what made Shinji still live despite the punishment collar put on the hero by WILLE for his crime against humanity.

Re: Personal Status After Rebuild

I think the ending of 3.0 is very positive to be honest, it makes me feel good. I have absolutely no idea how you could feel that way, given how Shinji is pretty much screwed. He unknowingly killed billions because he tried to save someone he cared about, which failed as well, got one of his other ...

Re: I feel like Shinji will withdraw from everyone in 1.0+3.0

Man, being someone who was really invested in seeing Shinji and Rei's relationship develop in this series, be it romantic or sibling, I hate the fact that Anno decided to frame it in such a negative light in 3.0 simply because he sees it as a metaphor for escapism, and we all know how much he despis...

Honestly, I just want this whole saga to be wrapped up with soon. Anno has dragged us along for almost an entire decade, leaving us with an incredibly dour and depressing note with 3.0's ending, with nothing to show for it while he goes off and works on other projects that he obviously is more passi...

Re: I feel like Shinji will withdraw from everyone in 1.0+3.0

Are we sure that the SDAT represents him withdrawing from everything like in the original series? Cause when he threw it away in 2.0, he was very much shown to be at his lowest point, and ironically withdrew himself from everything soon afterwards. If anything, the player seems to more represent som...

I gotta say, these are the kind of progress updates I was looking for. :D Also, the whole thing with the motion capture tech makes me suspect that the fight against the MP-EVAs in Final is gonna look something like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P8GGwgI2vGU Replace pole with spear. :tongue:

Re: Should Asuka die in the final film?

It really depends of what Anno has in store. From what I've seen, she seems to be taking over the role that Misato had in EoE; the "rescuer that attempts to get him to man up and take action" person. Now that doesn't mean she's gonna die, but that's just what I've gathered. And for the rec...
