Will the earlier linked scripts work for a base script around which I can throw some banter?

^ nah, that would just end up sounding like ADV's cast/director commentary for Puni Puni Poemy - a bunch of incoherent giggly highschoolers talking over each other and interrupting with irrelevant crap. If someone ever seriously wants to do an MST3K of Evangelion, however: I'm in. Shouldn...

I'll help with the writing and do voice work if anyone can figure out how to make it happen.

I would enjoy seeing an MST3K version of Evangelion. I enjoy MST3King Evangelion when I watch it. It's a series that lends itself quite well to that sort of treatment. Pregnant pauses, awkward situations, it takes itself seriously - perfect fodder, really. Originally posted on: 06.01.2006, 01:08...

Evangelion's dub did not "suck," That'd be your opinion. That wouldn't be mine. There are lots of dubs I like, and some that I outright prefer to the original voice track - Evangelion's not one of them. And I'm normally a huge Megumi Hayashibara fan, too. Originally po...

After watching the ADV Director/VA commentary track, I have to say that I'll probably never watch another ADV dub-related extra again. Ever. In the case of Evangelion, I thought the dub sucked. I can't imagine why I'd want to watch an extra commentary feature to find out why it sucked. T...

Derek Jarman doesn't have "The content of this post is fact. If you disagree, you are wrong." in his sig, therefore I have to agree with Magician Camille. Besides... 'Jarman'? What kind of superhero name is that? He has the superhuman ability to... what? Open really difficult j...

So the only original mecha show is the first mecha show? With that logic Star Wars is a ripoff of Forbidden Planet. Nah, that would mean that Star Wars was a ripoff of Shakespeare's The Tempest , which doesn't work. Star Wars is more a ripoff of Joseph Campbell's research. Originally po...

A bit off-topic, but do you consider NGE as a whole to be a symbolic/allegorical story? I don't think it's any one thing. It strikes me as a work that was written with one focus, revised with another focus, produced with another focus, etc. I think you can see the different layers of focus ...

^ Have you read the thread? Doesn't Ideon have a very strong "end of the world giant mech" theme? Haven't about a dozen people mentioned that, as well as Anno's direct influence from Ideon? What I think Evangelion does that's original is present ... an allegorical argument,...

I refuse to do that. That would take far too much time and effort. Pointing out ONE valid contradiction would take as long as scrolling back to the post and hitting the QUOTE button.

I know. I'm just goin' with the craziness. Once you start seeing how every series ripped off every other series, the sky's the limit!

What do you think the OP thinks of parodies and homages?

Tenshi na Konamaiki and Ranma 1/2 - Gender bending Oh, we can take it a lot farther than that. There's an episode of Urusei Yatsura where Ataru gets turned into a girl (simultaneously a curse and a blessing to him), which means that Rumiko Takahashi was copying herself! Totally shameles...

Nah, Shinji_Ikari had more resolve. EvaXephon left around post #10 when his ideas were deemed laughable, and he hasn't been back. Image

It doesn't matter if Eva copied another anime. That's irrelevant. The issue here is that RahXephon copied Eva. That is not changed if Eva copied something else. No, that doesn't follow logically. What if they both copied the same things ? Then you'd see all the same similarities, bu...

Whatever else I might guess about the post-3I world, somehow, I just know there'll be a Starbucks somewhere in the middle of it.
