Re: Asuka isn't Justified B/

Dropping one line from the script is all that it would take, the one that made me say to myself "Where the hell did that come from? Do they think that being on the silver screen necessitates injecting a romance angle?" In a story that had been about coming to terms with being oneself, inj...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

Would you argue that Rent-a-Girlfriend is in a way an homage to Love Hina? I'm not well-watched on this genre, so this could be true and I'm just in dark. I also watched Love Hina 15-16 years ago. Most of my thoughts: Keitaro in Love Hina is a ronin (and spends most of the series like that if I...

Re: Piano-Facilitated Homoeroticism at an Altitude of 10km: A Field Study

I apologize, it was used as a box set extra, a movie calendar in 2001. And yes, it's in Die Sterne.

Evacommentary used to have a link confirming this, but it's dead.

Looking at the broader context of the series, she demands that he isn't so self-deprecatory and "grows a spine", basically. Not responsibility in the sense of preparing dinner, but responsibility in the sense that he acts of his own volition. "Hold me, kiss me, save me, but do someth...

Re: Stuff that you would like to see in Evangelion 3.0+1.0

Late reply, but here goes. Shinji choose to save Rei at the end of 2.0 regardless of what "might" happen has been described as a metaphor for escapism, but I feel that does a grave disservice to both characters, You can interpret it that way. Or you can go with "even the right decisi...

@Alaska Slim: Everything I wrote was in relationship to NGE!Asuka&Shinji - I just don't have good enough of a handle on NTE to say something substantial about it. Ah, well in that case, I dunno if "responsibility" represents a part of her demands. Shinji is the most responsible of the...

Re: Question about Rei in 3.33 B/

Not much point to create a subforum for it yet can't openly talk about it. That's why I avoided it for... 6 years? Before I finally sat down and watched 3.33. 3.0+1.0 spoilers are still a thing though. As to Rei Q, the Rei Ayanami that Shinji saved still exists somewhere within EVA-01 according to F...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 Bl

Rent-a-Girlfriend Ep. 3 This show is trash to some degree, but I'm enjoying it because every few moments I want to smother the MC and grind his face into the pavement. That whiny, horny, entitled 20-something mindset I never occupied, because I was a Hachiman. And since Oregiaru S3 is also going on...

Re: Why didn't Misato (or anyone) tell Shinji anything in 3.0?

Is Misato mad at Shinji or just conflicted about knowing he’s lost 14 years of time, his childhood and any sense of innocence because he did something ( piloting Eva ) that she knowingly coerced him into doing? As BlueBasilisk suggests here , there may also be continuing projection going on. In 2.2...

Re: Piano-Facilitated Homoeroticism B/

The NTE version of Kaworu is hard to work with because we still have an entire movie (and all the post- Shin analysis) missing. I'm glad I finally found a way to explain him that doesn't require resorting to stuff like "Kaworu is stalking Shinji through four dimensions and will continue to do ...

Was he? These sorts of claims need a source to avoid the kinds of fan conspiracy theories that threads like this emerge to debunk. You are absolutely right, a 1,000 apologies Reichu-san. My language was also vague, I did not mean to imply that Anno had taken a poll but had rather been asking someon...

Re: "Cut December 2014" Interview with Sadamoto Bl

I might have liked, or at least respected the change of Manga!Shinji vs NGE!Shinji, if Sadamoto had gone full Natsuki Subaru with him, and made his flaws a clear result of his anti-social habits/upbringing. Something he needed to overcome, just in a different vein from NGE. As presented, he just fee...

Re: Against "Rebuild is Anti-Rei Pro-Asuka" B/

Wasn't Anno openly asking someone "Which girl should Shinji end up with" for 3.0+1.0?

That kind of dampens the idea that he had a pro-Asuka ending from the start. Or Pro anyone really.

Kaguya-Sama: Love is War second season.

I hate it when a comedy tries to go dramatic; I don’t ca...
