I'm still not quite getting what the site's all about... it's just another blog? The mandate of the site, based on its actual stated purpose and what actually happens, is that people post links to the "best of the web" or "the most important things going on right now"...

It's one of the most popular blogs around. Alexa ranks it in the top 2000 (global) and top 1000 (English-language sites). This is a site where a thread can get hundreds of posts within a 24 hour period. It's pretty active. But they post about virtually anything. Why I find th...

I CONCUR, ZAPPY-KUN. Sounds like grown-ass woman trying to talk like little girls. This is the way you talk to your lover when you're dressed in that pervy schoolgirl outfit he bought you for "roleplaying". Actually, I've pretty much just been watching Zappy-kun's image on loop...

Epic post about Eva at Metafilter (Evageeks gets linked)

Don't know if this is the right forum, but the Metafilter blog has a huge megapost about Evangelion here: http://www.metafilter.com/100327/Neon-Genesis-Evangelion-Hideaki-Anno-Reborn-Again-and-Again Our own precious Evageeks gets some links! Anyway, I'm always interested in what the people i...

When it comes to a conversation in the fleshworld, the actual words people use aren't that important. It's the tone of voice, the inflection, the body language, the facial expressions. Even with really shitty subtitles you're still getting a good sense of the intent of the creator throug...

I will support a naked Asuka tattoo if it is done in a 1950s pin-up style. A big super bright tattoo of Asuka in her plugsuit doesn't have that same crossover appeal. I feel the standard franchise version of Asuka will not translate well to flesh and ink. Maybe a more stylized Asuka. I guess som...

The topic changed to "sexist fan interpretations of Evangelion" a few pages back. I'll explain further. Some time ago I believe this thread reached a consensus that Evangelion had no sexist message, and I agree. I even called this thread "shitty". The thread died in August 20...

I think it'd be more accurate to say "sexually harassing" than just "flaming". But I get fighty all the time so it's probably karma. Apologies for leading things into dangerous waters. ^^; Addressing issues within fandom can get fighty, yeah. But hopefully we've all l...

Is it accurate to say that people who defend dubs tend to have started with the dub? I actually saw the Evangelion dub first, and I wasn't a big anime fan at the time. (I'm now thoroughly addicted.) The second time I watched the sub version just to see what the Japanese was like and...

This video compares the male and female voicework in Mass Effect 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ka57odVXldw The male actor has the same problem as Eva's English cast. So far Mari's actor sounds like she's continuing the tradition of flat, lifeless delivery. Good grief, casting judgeme...

The "GET THE FUCK OUT" reaction could also be due to art school snobbishness. Compare the Disney dub of any Ghibli movie with the Eva dub. Whereas Disney uses professional actors, the Eva dub uses amateurs. The quality in acting is quite apparent. Very few anime properties get a Disney-qua...

When I was in high school being "goth" was way more scary. Like Nine Inch Nails and Marilyn Manson. Now "goth" is a codeword for "frilly things and cake".

People! Pedophilia is attraction to children who have not reached puberty . If you wake up covered in your goopy excretions surrounded by print-outs of Asuka from 4chan that doesn't make you a pedophile. Rest easy. Girls develop differently than boys. Go to a high school classroom full of 13/14-...
