Re: Personal Status After Rebuild

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. Yet sai...

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: Personal Status After Rebuild

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: 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...

Re: Do you think anno regrets making rebuild?

You know, I'm just gonna through this out there, the explanation that 3.0 was made the way it was in order for the audience to be in the same mindset as Shinji I find to be a terrible excuse. That basically means that the narrative was compromised in order to try to force the viewer to feel a certai...

Re: Did Anno Seek to Undermine Rei with Rebuild?

Again, I don't know. I really enjoyed watching the relationship between Shinji and Rei in the second film, as I saw it as less of a "waifu-fantasy" and more of a simple budding connection between two similar individuals in a dark time, and I also saw the latter as becoming more than just a...

Re: Did Anno Seek to Undermine Rei with Rebuild?

I don't know. For me, I liked Rei because she was a very tragic and sympathetic character, and her supposed creepy traits only made her all the more tragic to me. As a result, I really enjoyed seeing her character develop in the first two Rebuild films. Then Anno drops a bridge on all that and repla...

Did Anno Seek to Undermine Rei with Rebuild?

I posted this in Reddit, but I'd like to know what you guys think. This is just something that I've seen swirling around several message boards and the like. Basically, they theorize that the reason Rei was portrayed as she is in Rebuild 3.0 is because Anno, because he apparently hates both Rei and ...

Re: Do people still hate Evangelion 3.33?

Well it does feel at times that anything that people criticize the film for gets immediately hand waved as being "Anno's intention", like that makes it utterly void because he's Anno. Anyways, I actually don't have a problem with meta-narratives and themes. Heck, some of my favorite works ...

Re: Do people still hate Evangelion 3.33?

Something can't be both incest and rishathra? The incest subtext was always Anno's intent, as he is hardly subtle about it in interviews. Odd how many of the same people who seem to be into Rei/Shinji the most are also the most ardent about rationalizing away the incest aspect. Freud would be havin...

You guys are ignoring my post aren't you? And okay, I admit it. I do still want to see those two get together (don't consider clones incest). Plus she deserves more than being alone in a tube masturbating alongside Gendo. Talk about squicky, even more so than the apparent incest. Still though, my co...

Why Is Liking 2.22 Bad?

This is something I've been wracking my brain around. 2.22 is one of my favorite films. However, it seems that the general consensus around these here parts is that people loved 2.22 because it was "pandering" to them, and that one reason why 3.33 is such a "masterpiece" is becau...

Re: Do people still hate Evangelion 3.33?

No idea where you're going with this... The "why" is almost exclusively because people deluded themselves into expecting a brighter, happier Eva -- and instead of Shinji & Rei's Merry Wincest Adventures (or whatever), they got Annoed. Well that's quite a condescending excuse for why s...

Bit off topic, but I wonder if the new Godzilla film will end up having a trailer (maybe the first full length one) for the next Eva film attached to it. It would certainly help boost the viewer count. Just something to show that Anno's still working on the next film. It just sticks in m...

I'm pretty sure that he said that he's trying to work on both.

If not though, then that is extremely frustrating for him to put aside an already delayed production just for a fricken Godzilla film. :irked:

Being the Rei fanboy that I am, I am overall pleased with her character in Rebuild, including her Q version. Heck, it's arguably her relationship with Shinji that acts as one of the main center pieces of the entire saga so far. Even in Q, it's Poka's absence that leads to many of the plo...

Rei's origins only increase her pathos. She's a thing, someone grew her in a lab. She was raised by the aloof and childish Gendo and the cruel Ritsuko who taught her to believe that she has absolutely no value. She lives in a partially demolished, filthy apartment because no one ever taught...
