Well, personally, I don't think the possession of a "vertical main axis" should be the sole determinant for whether or not Anno is messing with our minds. Turn EVA-02's eye sockets 90 degrees, and, well, there you go. Of all the eye sockets I've seen, the Evas' are the onl...

200: Nah, a regular ol' banana peel can disorient absolutely ANYthing in an animated world. In fact, seeing as NGE takes place within just such a world, I wonder why Nerv didn't pick up on this...forget all the useless gun emplacements and mines, if you really want to stop the Angels, put o...

Can't write anything intelligent today, either, since I'm feeling the antithesis of "better" presently. Hopefully this cold won't turn into a sinus infection like last time, though. Awww... If it's any consolation, it's better to get the required dose of what we Englis...

But about the exclamation points: Ohhhhh, trust me, are they EVER in the script... I ended up eliminating most of them (a few seem to have evaded me, the little buggers) because, in English anyway, it made the script "narrator" sound like someone of Excel-level hyperactivity. (...

..."OTT"? Over The Top. If she really were wearing just the shoulder towel, and not the larger body towel. hehehe! It almost looks that way in the bad light. Shin-seiki theorizes about what the hand levers may really be for in the OP commentary. A similar idea is presented in one of the m...

340 - Coming to a boy's room late at night wearing nothing but a towel? What a tease. The first time I read your post, I looked at the screenie and thought you were referring to the towel around her shoulders. I did briefly entertain the notion that she was wearing just that towel, until I look...

I think if Rei 2 had the level of self-awareness/independence that Rei 3 does, they could have just sent HER out to battle Angels, without the Eva! At any rate, the relationship between Rei and her Eva is a hotly-debated one and certainly not something we want to start getting into as early as epis...

I don't think she knows she can do the AT field untill Kaworu shows up. He tells her that they are the same and she wonders how and then he goes and does his little thing and she realizes what he means. Thats what I think. Hmph. One of the fan-pages that I had read seemed to suggest the followi...

213: I wonder: just how, exactly, does one go about getting an EVA to "deploy" an AT Field? It's doesn't correspond to anything a human normally consciously does, like moving one's arms and legs... Well, it is clear to see in many shots that the pilot of an EVA has his hands o...

It's interesting that Anno would give these issues to both of his self-appointed "main characters", as well. As we well know, Misato's attraction to Kaji is due to him reminding her of her father, to the point where he feels like her father "reborn". This is slightly les...

http://evageeks.org/forum/images/archive_fgc/lol.gif Special indeed it is, though, fortunately, not in the "Japanese fanboy and his life-size Rei replica" or "Shinji locked in room with comatose Asuka" or "Starmorpher and his Asuka pics" way. I'm just imagining you...

“Maintaining the restraints” would presumably also involve replacing the armor when it gets busted, as with EVA-01's helmet in #02 and her pectoral plates in #06. In other words, they would get free peeks of the Evas from time to time. Free peeks? You really do have a special relationship with ...

172 : You can here and in subsequent shots that Shinji has clipped his ID card to his shirt pocket. [I dunno, I only just noticed this and it amused me.] I don't get it. Isn't this just what people normally do with an ID card? Is there something about this I'm not seeing? Originally pos...

NGE's references are hardly restricted to mecha anime... Anno borrowed from EVERYwhere. Yes, I was just commenting because you seemed to feel that mecha anime was one area you especially don't know much about, that there are plenty of others who can help you. Of course, anyone who would be ...

Blah, speaking of all these anime that Eva references -- and those that reference Eva in turn -- sure, some appendix features would be nice. Having not seen a terribly large number of anime myself, I would leave it mostly to other folks... It would probably be to my benefit to finally watch some Ma...

7 - Considering that most anime gets mildly criticised for being too heavy on the 'fan-service' isn't it odd that NGE boasts about it? It's definitely not as if the promise of seeing Misato's scantily-clad form could ever be what was drawing in the viewers, is it? Originally post...
