I've applied my limited Japanese translation ability to a few of the easier lines in the script: 00:01:11 {Man} / Transition shift to 7. {シフトをセブンに移行} 00:01:11 {Man} Transition to shift 7. (Should the Japanese be シ&#...

And since they'll have to remove the names at some point Huh? The subtitle files that I have for 1.11 and 2.22 (.ass) include names for every line that is spoken. It's a standard field for each line of dialogue. To everyone who has put work into the script, many thanks. It's gre...

I don't think that's a repeat, I think it's just a colon followed by a bold(final) double bar. Seele08 said (waaay back) that there was no colon, just a double bar. Edit: What I mean to say is: it is just "fine". Song's over. No repeat. Edit: Aha... I see h...

it would be interesting to see who most people would want back During the heal/hurt game I couldn't help but think that it would be fun to play "heal/hurt the banned members". Start them at -100 and un-ban at 0. Note: I'm not suggesting this seriously. The whole thing would be cre...

There's probably something useful in this old thread right here. Also dug up this ancient ANF thread that I've never read before. - A controllable Lilith-surrogate was very desireable - Much easier to yank flesh off Lilith than grow Adam flesh from scratch (consider all the failures befo...

As for the former, I don't know what there is to "wear down". If people don't want to keep up the debate then stop. No harm, no foul. What's the problem? I know this is no problem for you (since you enjoy your debating methods), but it makes this place less enjoyable f...

It was just a suggestive way of saying "how can we know there's truth to begin with?" as an answer to my "if something can't be proved, it's less likely to be true" comment. In my view, it was well-played on his part, poorly on yours. I told Xard quite explicitly tha...

Because it wastes everyone's time and distracts from the argument at hand. Why not just stick to the point being argued? Why bring up a bunch of irrelevant crap?

If something can't be proved, there's a good (or at least better) chance it's not true. Pretty basic stuff. Prove me there's an external world outside and that you're not a brain in a vat. I never said that we don't start from assumed, unproved axioms. But, acknowled...

I'll get to you tomorrow, C.A.P., Xard is just easier to dispense with: ... And you're still as wrong as when you first said it. Isn't it obvious that Xard is adding a bit of a troll-edge to his arguments here? So maybe you could peel the troll bits off his arguments and just reply to t...

Re: view unanswered posts -> view recent posts

But how would the forum know who you are and what you have read? I was desiring something that listed all recent posts, regardless of when my last visit was, and without any read/unread highlighting. Just something that lists all posts in all forums starting with the most recent and going back in t...

view unanswered posts -> view recent posts

Often I want to scan recent posts, even ones I might have already read. Is there a way to do this? If not, could the View unanswered posts link be changed to a View recent posts link? Something I can use to skim recent messages without having to log in first would be ideal. On a related note, what a...

Why? Suspension of disbelief has nothing to do with whether something is metafiction. For example, there is plenty of non-meta-fiction out there that doesn't ask for any suspension of disbelief. Either because the stories are just meant to be silly and unbelievable, or because they are meant to...

Vol 1 has some of the better art in the series. If you are unable to get used to it, might as well stop now. (Or who knows, maybe you'll like some of the later artists better... the art style varies a lot).

Not that I have anything against either Misato or Shinji,
but there is a button in front of me, and I have to push it.

I choose you, Misato.

Shinji - 70
