Re: Shinji a Misogynist?

Well a lot of what I might say has already been covered by Kendrix but: One of the things is that people refer to sexism, misogyny, male chauvinism, patriarchy and so on like they’re all interchangeable. Time to critique this discussion up! These all come in many different subtly distinct forms. It’...

Re: Theoretically, would a Western re-release of Eva be better before or after 4.0?

I think that there is no need to delay licensing the series (as a unit with the related films of course) until the last film of Rebuild appears, Not waiting both emphasises that the series and Rebuild are separate entities and simultaneously keeps interest raised while we are waiting for the comple...

Re: Theoretically, would a Western re-release of Eva be better before or after 4.0?

I'm fine with the original English dub. I think some are really harsh. Some of it is very improvable as well. Tiffany Grant dropping the cod German in the early episodes and no re-dubbing Aoba (or Gendo, less controversially). Kaworu's VA I think is particularly variable. A lot of the rest is perso...

Re: The Madonna-Whore complex in Rei and Asuka?

A Madonna character is loyal and maternal, which reminds me of Rei, through her relationship to Gendo in the beginning of the series and being that she is a clone of a mother. On the other hand a Whore character is your typical femme fatale who uses her sexuality to take advantage of men often with...

Re: Ghostbusters Reboot

The firstly, that the Hollywood system kept dicking around Dan Aykroyd's and Harold Ramis's script for Ghostbusters 3 until Harold Ramis died. I think Bill Murray saying he'd only be in it if his character was "killed off in the first reel" was a bigger problem. 2016 Ghostbusters can't co...

Re: Ghostbusters Reboot

Doesn't help that Star Trek came out the following week and blew its chances of making a comeback in the second week out of the water. This is probably a much bigger effect in general than people think. But I think Revolutionary Lady Devilman Ghostbusters 2016 made a serious error. It was a gross-o...

Re: Does Shinji ever get the truth about Rei?

Tantalizingly, Ritsy does use the world 'salvage' but still doesn't mention Yui in episode 23. It just goes to show how much the series it's a conspiracy against its own characters. The whole Freudian horror part of the show is such a big part of the mood to the viewers but even Asuka doesn't really...

Does Shinji ever get the truth about Rei?

I was just going over episode 24 recently and there's this one scene where Shinji just begins to suss it...but does he ever actually, like, get it? I control-r'd some keywords in the scripts for EoE as well and I didn't find it.

I also looked over the manga again...does he ever learn it?

Re: Star Wars

The droid was the best character in the movie. Why do all droids have British accents, though? Because they are expensive servants. To change the subject, it just occurred to me that Kylo Ren is something of a cerebral deconstruction of Darth Vader fanboys and Vader's status as a beloved cultural i...

Hayao Miyazaki updates enemies list

You loved "Anime was a mistake".

But when shown an animation generated by artificial intelligence, famed animator Hayao Miyazaki was not impressed. “I strongly feel that this is an insult to life itself,”
