"Shinseki" is not "Shin seiki". There's an I and its pronounced differently. General Shinseki is the US Army chief of staff who in 2001-2003, insisted to Rumsfeld that Iraq could not possibly be controlled with only a few thousand US troops, and that "going in with the a...

Plus, it's Japan, who are a decade ahead of everyone else anyway. that is specifically my point: Japan is technologically ahead of North America by a few years (why is that, btw?) so how "advanced" was the Evangelion-Tokyo-3 level of tech, compared to contemporary Japan in 2015?

I'm very interested in how Eva isn't really set "in the far future" like a Gundam series, nor is it simply a present-day series. instead, they tried to seriously show a "near future" of about 20 years from the "present" of course, their "present" was i...

there is running debate over whether "Rei 1" was cloned from Yui's surviving genetic material, or if she sort of "congealed out of the Entry Plug" a la Shinji in episode 20. Personally I believe she was cloned from recovered genetic material, but it is kind of vague. Rei 2, R...

dude....they used fansubbed VHS tapes.

Granted I guess some must have used the internet, but it really wasn't up to specifications back then; it was more for coordinating where to pick up your VHS tape.

they're the most powerful human weapon ever made (not an Eva) but they can only moderately hurt some of the WEAKER Angels.

how many still get updated? the fact that several Gen1 geocities pages still exist from 2001 (the Stone Age) simply because no one has taken the content down, but they haven't been updated in all that time, doesn't mean its "there" anymore

yes, I am shocked and amazed that Carl Horn actually was one of the "1st Gen" fans who watched the series as it came over one gloriously bad fansub at a time bootlegged from Japan week by week; the "Good Ol' Days" of yore when anime was so hard to obtain that anything was a t...

ironically, I've found that the North-eastern United States is actually one of the worst places for conventions (as I call it, "The Greater New York City Empire" of the Boston-to-WashingtonDC megalopolis) California naturally always got bootlegs from Japan so their conventions ...

The exact nature of the creation of Kaworu remains one of the major mysteries of the series but based on the statement that "he's basically Seele's version of what Rei is to Nerv", I've settled on that: 1- he PROBABLY is not a new "Angel" soul per se, there was no &qu...

I'm reminded of when, in after-school specials about how drug abuse and divorce breaks up families, after this leads to the family member totally falling apart, someone suggests a joke, hoping for a return to normalcy.

NGE Collection (2003)- no extra scenes here. Bad quality and even worse subs, including the infamous 'lyrics to Cruel Angel's Thesis changed so people can sing along in English' debacle;
