Re:

This isn't even "mod mode", but an honest question: Is this kind of comment necessary ? :uhh: Miyamura shouldn't be "shamed" for having done adult work before her seiyuu career took off. "Sasuga amateur JAV actress" just means how you'd translate it stereotypically: As...

Re: Yuko Miyamura wants to rape Rei (Animage 1996 Anno x Miyamura discussion)

Yuko Miyamura wants to rape Rei (Animage 1996 Anno x Miyamura discussion)

In one of those (drunken) post-series conversations between Anno and Miyamura she made it clear just how stereotypically 'Japanese' and un-PC their sex drives are. Pretty based. Sasuga amateur JAV actress. This exchange is an excerpt from much longer discussion. It took place after TV series had bee...

Re: Against "Rebuild is Anti-Rei Pro-Asuka" conspiracy theory

I can translate that if wanted, but I'm pretty sure that whole interview has been translated before. It's the one where Anno talks about miscalculating regarding Rei by having her character arc reach pinnacle too early in ep 6 and them him literally forgetting about her (for a while), as what had in...

Re: Against "Rebuild is Anti-Rei Pro-Asuka" conspiracy theory

OP, I read your post, I agree with it, but I also think nutcases should just be ignored. Agreed, but alas I had promised a response before realizing the full extent of the quagmire - and promises are to be honored. Was it worth writing 8k words over? Of course not. That's one hell of a return from ...

Re: Against "Rebuild is Anti-Rei Pro-Asuka" conspiracy theory

Excellent post, Xard. I congratulate you, good sir! But to be to be fair I see this as nothing more as a extension of tired, played out Waifu wars that have been going on since these characters conception and the never ending myth, perpetuated by certain (Asuka) fans (and continuously butthurt Rei ...

Against "Rebuild is Anti-Rei Pro-Asuka" conspiracy theory

Apparently some extremely uncharitable (towards Anno and other creators of Evangelion) and ludicruous theories about post-EoE development of Eva franchise being a massive conspiracy against Rei and her fans and in favor of Asuka and her fans have been spawned in the seething post-Q Rei fan haunts on...

10. Group Mentality Nobi was irritated by male Rei otaku at Comiket. Anno emphasizes with her irritation. Anno says that Aum demonstrated that some people are driven to be a part of a group. Anno realized how easy it is to become a cult leader. However, the problem is that human beings also cannot ...

I guess that, following your point that an anime movie isn't a special medium but simply a movie done in a different way (good point, for sure), it'd be more of a matter of other anime movies being underrated as just "movies" rather than Ghibli's work being overrated a...

You don't need to watch most animes that come out in order have a better understanding of anime than somebody who's only watched Ghibli stuff. Also, watching a lot of anime, and sub-standard stuff with that, doesn't mean your taste is degrading because it doesn't automatically mean ...

I know plenty of people who can do the same and tell me what they like about Ghibli movies. My argument is that many of the people who know and appreciate Ghibli's works do not have anime knowledge outside of Ghibli's work. I know that for a fact when it comes the people I am talking about ...
