Is this worthy of a submission?

Your Eva fan art and letters are wanted...

I posted this earlier to the thread on the Shinji Ikari Raising Project manga, but I thought I might put a reminder here, too—an invitation for everyone at EvaGeeks to contribute to "Misato's Fan Service Center," the letters column for both of Dark Horse's Evangelion manga, Shinji ...

I'm sorry for the delay on The Shinji Ikari Raising Project Vol. 6. It should be available from stores that use Diamond distribution on October 27, and in other stores the week after that. On that note, I would like to forward the invitation for everyone at EvaGeeks to contribute to "Misato...

I guess part of the reason I'm chiming in is because I was the person who wrote the article you linked to. Of current or former members of Gainax, Toshio Okada was the first to visit America during the making of the original Eva TV shows and movies; appearing at Otakon '95 about one month be...

If you've read The Notenki Memoirs , (or Yamaga's interview, conducted in 1997 and appearing in the May 1998 issue of Animerica ), it would be fair to say that Gainax would have a difference of opinion regarding Okada. The nature of Gainax, and of Anno, makes it difficult to say if E...

Nice to see you around here, Carl. I quite agree with your summation here, but would add that, beyond the characters and the story, the religious symbolism also serves as a potent aesthetic context and an economic fictional, structural, and thematic device. Throughout the series, Anno seems to take...

One of the encouraging things about this thread is that many of the posters are aware that the history of Judeo-Christian thought is complex and diverse in the extreme--not only a continuum from "orthodoxy" to "heresy," but thousands of different continua, depending on where any ...

Practically every big animator of Anno's generation worked under at least Miyazaki and Tomino. Anno worked on Nausicaa for sure and possibly some other things too; I believe there's an anecdote about Miyazaki taking him to task for overindulging his naval-warfare fetish during Nausicaa some...

Seeing as he directed Gainax's only work without moe or fan service, it's not quite so shocking. We still fight, fighting in the eighties (eighties, eighties).

The idea that Anno would be offended by Gunbuster being turned into a pachinko game per se seems somewhat questionable, since the success of the Evangelion pachinko game is often credited with making possible the new film series. Anyone who's been around a Kinokuniya the last few years has proba...

Anno and Yamaga go way back; they were in the same dorm at college, and have been making films together just as long. I asked Yamaga-san directly about the Gainax/Khara split. He said that it wasn't that he and Anno had a fight or anything, it was more that in 2006 Yamaga wanted Gainax to make G...

Jung and Evangelion

Evageeks should make the Live Action Movie and we can all work together. ADV can no longer do it so we actually have a chance of making this open-source movie. I think our movie would end up something like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_ekugPKqFw "Prog Knife! Prog Knife! Prog Knife!&qu...
