I think calling EoTV or EoE optimistic is a stretch. Eotv's optimistic message is pretty much just two lines at the end, lines which state the obvious. EoE's message was "YOU ARE A DIGUSTING WRETCH! THE LOWEST OF THE LOW!" With a dash of "it's upto you to change that.&quo...

Hated 3.33. Now I love it since it's a complete clusterfuck and proved Anno is a complete troll. "Ha, you all crazy fans with all your theories through the years thought you would know everything about EVA universe? I going to show you what PAIN is like" and all EVA "specialists&q...

I don't have the canonical script, only an old fansub of EoE that in my humble opinion is a bit intriguing about this crazy "sequel" theory since you can think about some "sequel hints" if you analyze the script below (specially out of EoE context, think about what is sai...

I tend to think the donor was always Gendo. Kaworu referred to Gendo as father in Rebuild. This could actually happen in Rebuild. Then there will be a whole lot of new psychological discussions and theories about Shinji’s attraction to Kaworu and a whole new concurrency debate regarding Gendo being...

Second, the shifting backgrounds during the 'people can come back' talk can be seen as showing the entire process starting over, eventually leading to another crop of humans in cities but not necessarilly the same ones who just got tanged. A.T.Fields are "the barrier of the heart that ...

Instead literally everyone gets a do over. (...) We watch the whole damn cast die and then learn "it's fine, they'll get better." If that's not optimistic I really don't know what is. In EoE yes every one went into instrumentality but the movie makes it very clear ...

nostalgic, you have a bunch of feminists telling you what feminism is. And you are telling us that it is not the thing that we are telling you. The absurdity of this is astounding. And what is this? You've contradicted yourself in the same paragraph. No, I haven't. Situations where men are ...

But that's what feminism is. Once you start treating women as people and not as women specifically you're practicing feminism 101. Feminism is empowering women against patriarchy. It's the core of feminism, in all waves. And there's no such a thing in Evangelion. Treating women as p...

We have more schools of feminism than Rei clones.

Using children as tools like they are used in Evangelion could mean child slavery, never feminism. I agree with Reichu: we're talking about civil rights.

Perhaps it is Lilith being witnessed by the only other Seed of Life on Earth, just as she witnesses the deaths of all of the her Lilin. But who knows? Rei I is a small child, but this picture shows a 14yr Kaworu. But what really intrigued me was Kaworu's mirrored in Rei's eyes since it was ...

Today I learned that if I put a strong woman in a script, it's a "feminist thing". This doesn't make any sense. It's just a character in a plot. People keep putting words in the mouth of others. Feminism is empowering women against the patriarchy - in Mad Max, we have a woman j...

Don't show Evangelion to your friend if s/he's likes anime series that have a climax that are understandable at first. The problem with evangelion is that a lot of stuff isn't easily explained in the series. For example, to know who are the source of the dummy plugs in EoE Seele Evas , y...

What exactly is the meaning of these images in Rei's eyes?

This is from Death & Rebirth, beware of some spoilers if you haven't watched it. When Naoko Akagi is killing Rei I, you can see these images (Kaworu) in Rei's eyes and I still can't find a meaning for them, at least in that moment of the series. Is it the same idea of Rei sho...

You wouldn't think that the new Mad Max movie was feminist (Max Max? Feminist? Seriously?) but it has so many powerful feminist elements that it may as well be so even if it's meant to be a post-apocalyptic action movie at heart The new Mad Max has nothing of feminism in the plot. Y...
