I have to admit that I find Angelic Days weirdly endearing: it's no replacement for the core of the mythos, but it's a sweet cheerful place to visit once in a while. On the other hand, I wind up yawning when people seem to get tunnel vision about the level of despair in the series; I've ...

Recently finished watching Death Note and Blood + . The latter got a bit draggy toward the end of the second season and the beginning of the third, but the fourth season wrapped everything up very well, with the promise of possible things to come, maybe a "thirty years later" sequel, but w...

That and comparing Twilight with NGE is like comparing a laundry list to a Shakespeare sonnet. I'm reading Twilight as of now (to put some verbs in my sentences when I talk about how bad the books are), and I can't help but think that Stephanie Meyers took an otherwise good idea for ...

you just get Angelic Days, and no one wants that. The problem with 2.0 in a nutshell. Hehe. The Rei/Asuka elevator scene is eerily similar to an exchange that they have in Angelic Days, come to think of it. Rebuild out-shojos the shojo spinoffs. And this is a bad thing because...?

I find it an irritant, since it seems to cause some people who aren't familiar with anime as a medium to think that all anime is pr0ny by nature, particularly if somehow, their initial exposure to anime was by way of brushes with H-anime. I can say this without impunity because, well, I was that...

It's never stated in 24' that Rei is an angel. She just generates an AT field. The Evas do that. I don't think this alone can push Rei up to Angel status. Doesn't Kaworu say something to Shinji about the AT Field being "the light of the soul" and that all living things hav...

Robin Williams could actually do a good job voicing Gendo (I'd like to hear the outtakes from *that*; he'd make dubbing EoE bearable): he's done some dramatic stuff and was surprisingly very good. Case in point, he played a silken-voiced serial killer opposite Al Pacino in "...
