I've been thinking about the original 'rejecting instrumentality' sequence and ending. Rei: "Only Angels can break the walls of an Angel heart." Kaoru" And only humans can break the walls of a human heart." Rei: "This is a possibility." Kaoru: "The poss...

Looking at the ED again (the ED theme, Fallen Angels, is amazing by the way), is it actually telling the story of how Panty and Stocking died (car fell off of cliff), paid for their sins (demon-like figure, saw above them), were sent to heaven (eaten by vultures, then fl...

As of 2.0, Eva is no longer a deconstruction of Super Robot shows; it's a deconstruction of Love Hina. , where the girl the protagonist doesn't choose is punished with death. The climax of the movie turns Shinji into a sort of murderous version of Keitaro, who saves the team member he think...

Hopefully. Hmmm still shows that at least Khara is willing to prolong its release dates to ensure perfection. Hahaha I wish it meant Australian summer, then it'd be like Dec, Jan, Feb. Sadly, I doubt it lol. I hope Madman do a Reelanime 2011 and get Eva 3.0. They were going to show 2.0 in 2009,...

No, just three or four months.
Q could still be a summer 2011 release.

I found Shinji much more likable in the original series because his character was so much more fleshed out. I really empathized with him. Not so much in Rebuild.

Last B's more depressing than the actual ending, I suppose, but it's not really nihilistic. From the dialogue, it sounds like unused script!Shinji is still grateful to be alive. As gwern pointed out, Shinji's dialogue in the final scene seems to be an extreme version of the "good t...

Panty & Stocking is a perfect by-the-book example of a divisive work. There's going to be no middle ground in regards to this show. You either love it with a passion (I'm in that camp) or you hate with a passion. I must be the exception to this rule. It was basically what I expe...

Re: Crazy!Shinji is depressing damnit. ._.

It would have reinforced the need for the audience to accept responsibility for their lives before things have gotten irreconcilably bad, driven home the lesson that being sorry for your actions doesn't always make their repercussions magically go away. It's a very honest and true message a...

I mean, I can see why people can hate those two episodes, but I never could relate. I know what they hate, it just never affected me in a negative way. You the same like that? Yeah. I think a lot of people think they were too goofy, but a little goofy anime humour every now and again isn't so b...

The whole Sahaquiel episode - an episode around a modified form of which 2.22 is centered - contains a disturbing undercurrent about Misato (which is never truly followed up on, irritatingly; I would have loved to see it resurface with Kaworu or something) as Misato risks her life, the live...

Except the infamous Shinji rapeface was still there in 2.0 and cut from 2.22 because they finally realized it looks retarded. And if he is not returning to the womb, why is he IN a symbolic womb, surrounded by icons of motherhood and isolation from the world? Seriously. Right back into the womb wit...

Episode 11 is very fun. My only complaint is that Rei looks like she just walked out of a UFO in some scenes, but beyond art style complaints, the episode is splendid. Not my favorite in the action arch, but certainly fine...but then again I also have no problem with episodes 7 or 10, so I'm on...

I still say there will be no consequences whatsoever in the next movie--we're meant to cheer over Shinji's heroic resolve and ignore abstract concerns like um...saving humanity. The original series is pretty solipsistic too, really; the epiphanies of a handful of adolescents and manchildren...

So basically their saying "here, have some fun before your brain explodes..." They're saying that, while at the same time fleshing out the characters so the eventual brain explosion is even more traumatic. Even despite its contextual necessity, as a standalone episode, 11 is just so m...

I just had a horrible thought. Asuka will be combined with an Angel and will in effect be the last Angel and Shinji will have to kill her with his own hands by choice. Like what he did with Kaworu in NGE, except here it is a nice duality because he almost killed Asuka with his own hands before AGAI...

Wow, the Fanime crowd sound like dicks. I saw subbed 1.0 at a Japanese Film Festival in Sydney in 2008. It was projected in 35mm. Was cool seeing Eva on a cinema screen, but what really struck me was that while a lot of the new animation looks really cool on a home sized monitor, when viewed on a sc...
