Re: Thoughts on Asuka

I see Asuka as somewhat of a mixed bag of several contradicting notions that constantly compete against eachother, leading to her over-the-top behavior. Firstly, she's been at the "head of the class" for so long, including recieving the recognition that goes with, that she now expects to s...

Re: What parts of yourself do you see in Evangelion's characters?

I'd have to say that I'm also closest to Misato than any other character. I'm active duty military, doing what I can to take my career where I want it to go (ultimately to retirement before I turn 40 ^_^ ) but sometimes things happen that are just totally beyond your control. Luckily, the 2-star tha...

Re: Mari Breaking the Loop?

I don't want to try and "extend" the argument for nor against the sequel/loop theory but I'll just toss my $0.02 in here. Having watched the entire TV series and Rebuild and read a lot of the mangas, there is nothing that I see in Rebuild that leads me to think of it as a sequel. IMHO, it ...

Re: Custom Bandai Eva Unit 00 Model (Rebuild Version)

And now for a customized Unit 1. The color scheme is Navy Blue, Yellow and Black. It has the narrower shoulders and production-type shoulder pylons of Unit 2 (and because of that it loses the added chest panels) and extended torso proportions and larger back panel (vents above the neck) of the Mark....

Re: [Manga] Shinji Ikari Raising Project

I just completed Omnibus Volume 1 and I'm rather liking the story. I agree with the others who enjoy it for being different from the usual depressing Eva stories. Sure, it's more like Love Hina or FMP? Fumoffu but there's nothing wrong with a little comedy in the Eva universe. :) Already ordered Omn...

Re: From Your Lips to the Author's Ears: Story Ideas

Here's a bit of a simple one that I have yet to read here (mind you I may have missed something)... Replace all the characters in NGE (TV or Rebuild, either/or) with the characters from Martian Successor Nadesico. Shinji Ikari -> Akito "I'm just a cook!" Tenkawa (I mean they even have the ...

Re: Custom Bandai Eva Unit 00 Model (Rebuild Version)

So I entered my finished model of the "Vessel of Adams" custom I built into my local hobby shop's bi-monthly model building contest (submissions have to be officially licensed kits) and believe it or not, I won. I'm pretty sure the judges were on crack because they said my model beat out a...

Re: From Your Lips to the Author's Ears: Story Ideas

Better. Not sure what you mean by Shinji not taking Asuka's shit lying down, as well as him being ripped. I'm not saying you must keep him wimpy, I'm just concerned of you going overboard with the upgrades and turning him into someone he isn't. Also, I have some stuff involving Evas that you might ...

And that's why I collect Revoltechs :tongue: That and because I can't assemble a decent model :facepalm: Oh I like the [Yamaguchi] Revoltechs too. I mean how else am I going to make my perfect Eva?

Re: Changes in Eva Designs between Series and Movies (and your opinions on them!)

So it seems the most preferred armor and proportions (based on the responses) are those seen in Rebuild 2.0. Honestly, I figured that people might end up preferring the 2.0 looks only because none of the proportions aren't overly exaggerated and their bodies look a bit more "realistic" in ...

I'm... not sure where I stand on this, honestly. It's adhering too close to canon for my liking, but that's just me (and I have received negative reactions for what I did to SCE). So then: ⋅ How about varying the early Angel battles to throw off reader expectations? Like, Rei gets the kil...

I've had this junk knocking around in my skull for a while and while I do write fic, I've never come close to touching Eva so I'm just going to dump this down here for $hits and giggles. I'm also a bit of a technical writing junkie (though I can do dialogue and narrative just as well) so I apologize...

Re: [Merch] Evangelion Figures Superthread [3]

Is there anywhere I can see a size comparison between the new Kotobukiya Eva TV kits and the Bandai Rebuild kits? I'm curious how they measure up to each other for possible kit-bashing opportunities. :wink:

Re: [Merch] Evangelion Figures Superthread [3]

Definitely happy that Kaiyodo is re-releasing units from their Revoltech Evangelion line (some with new accessories it seems) but I am a bit disappointed that there's no re-release of Unit 00. Will have to get the Mark 09 though. :)

Re: Changes in Eva Designs between Series and Movies (and your opinions on them!)

@ArvisTaljik , Oh, I'm not referring to Eva 08 in any fashion. I'm referring to Mari herself somehow being an actual Evangelion unit. If that is the case, then I prefer her over pretty much any version of any Eva unit. Considering the nature of the thread which you reference, I'm pretty sure that's...

Re: Changes in Eva Designs between Series and Movies (and your opinions on them!)

I prefer the original designs for 00 blue version (Never been fond of the orange design) and 01 but I do prefer 02's design in rebuild as I like the more demon like crest and face as I think it fits better but body wise for 02 I prefer the End Of Evangelion design and I do like Mari's pink 08 unit ...

Re: Changes in Eva Designs between Series and Movies (and your opinions on them!)

That same image is just displaying the word "image" Anyway, I liked your post, and I'd have to say I like the original designs better. They look far more interesting, and it looks more organic than the heavy blockier armor of the rebuilds. Definitely have to agree with you there. I was a ...
