Re: How did you first get into Evangelion?

Yes, my mind is all warped and mangled! In my case I actually read Orchestrating the Silence first, at the time. Overall I think Evangelion Genocide is the crowning achievement of Eva fics. But it is a pretty long and somewhat heavy read, but so is Ghosts of Evangelion. I think OtS might be better f...

Re: Gainax President Arrested on “Semi-Compulsory Obscenity” Charges, Taking Nude Pictures of Teen Voice Actress

Also, what are we supposed to think of this? In fact, Anno revealed, he had been considering producing Evangelion at a different studio at the time, and chose Gainax as the lead studio primarily for old times' sake. (There were in fact only three employees at GAINAX continuously working on the show,...

Re: Gainax President Arrested on “Semi-Compulsory Obscenity” Charges, Taking Nude Pictures of Teen Voice Actress

Someone on reddit pointed out to me that this is also compounded with Sadamoto's racist rants on Twitter last August. https://forum.evageeks.org/post/889609/Sadamoto-fighting-on-Twitter-denying-war-crimes-and-discriminating-Koreans-possibly-falling-out-with-Khara/#889609 Problem is, he is ALSO still...

Re: How did you first get into Evangelion?

I finished 2 days ago and have been in a deep depression since I wish things would just work for Shinji and Asuka. They need each other, even if they won't admit it. :irked: Are you me?!? In your case, many people find reading some of the more well-known fan stuff like Re-Take helps a lot, emotiona...

Re: Gainax President Arrested on “Semi-Compulsory Obscenity” Charges, Taking Nude Pictures of Teen Voice Actress

This must be pretty depressing for Anno. What seems to have really motivated Anno to come forward about this is that the Japanese media is mostly using associating this case with Evangelion, like calling Gainax "the company that makes Evangelion". I have of course seen it all over Western ...

Re: Value of the various subtitle translations

That is not censorship. If a network wants to remove or modify something in your work, that's one thing, if they impose some sort of condition on the production of the show, unreasonable as it may be, that's another. You are right about the violence though, I seem to have misremembered that. Nonethe...

Re: Release Date: June 27, 2020

And in the end, it wasn't a deep coded message inside a Japanese game show in a small town channel. It was just a tweet. Let the theories about the amazing meaning behind 27-06-2020 begin. 184 days from now. 1st Child = Shinji. Unit 08 = Mari. 4th Child = Toji. Mari is a clone created from fusing th...

Re: Value of the various subtitle translations

I mean, that source does not say that running out of money was the cause of that. Nor does it say they were censored, just that TV Tokyo demanded the episodes sooner. This is a form of meddling, sure, but it is not censorship. It does mention, also, that the violence previously showed on Eva made TV...

Disney is not exactly well-known for being a particularly honest, fair, pro-competition or consumer-friendly company... very few are, really.

Rey Skywalker, a Force-sensitive human female, was a Jedi who fought for the Resistance against the First Order during the New Republic Era. Though born as Rey Palpatine, she was unaware of her lineage as the granddaughter of Emperor Sheev Palpatine. Ugh. I love Palpatine and would love to see Ms. ...

And a great deal of misinformation, if I'm correct in thinking that he was one of the people peddling the "Evangelion was censored" bullshit - lies still repeated in Evageeks articles made this year! I don't know, he translated some of the initial stuff actually contradicting this. I'm no...

I still associate it with their D&R string quartet pieces. Violin Partita no 3 for Asuka, Cello Suite no 1 for Shinji. Rei... hmm, I once saw her playing Chopin's Étude no 3 in a fanfic, so why not. Touji and Kaworu have an association with Pachelbel's Canon and Beethoven's Symphony no 9, but th...

Gainax President Arrested on “Semi-Compulsory Obscenity” Charges, Taking Nude Pictures of Teen Voice Actress

Gainax president Tomohiro Maki has been arrested on “semi-compulsory obscenity” for allegedly taking pictures of a nude teen girl who was working as a voice actress. Yomiuri and Asahai News Network reports that the alleged incidents took place in February 2019. A voice actress “in her late 10s” (be...

Re: Is it normal to be traumatized by Evangelion?

While I understand what that is like, I do not think we should outright say Evangelion is the definitive anime or anything. Of course it is great, of course it is fantastic and influential, but there are many other great things (not only anime of course) out there. On a purely objective manner (How ...

After the 13th, kuribo-kun. When Shin releases we will be 4 months from completing our 14th year. This is not counting the AnimeNation days, of course.
