Re: Message In A Bottle (How the End of Evangelion Traumatized Me & How I Overcame It)

DAAAAAAAAMN that's a good ass wall of text. Hopelessromantic , I do recommend you watch the episodes you skipped, but Episodes 25 and 26 are really good for the show's final thoughts on the characters in the show, so I'm glad you watched that. Episode 8 introduces Asuka, and Shinji does kinda stand ...

Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media: 2.22 You Can (Not) Release

Re: GKids releasing NGE Blu-Ray in North America 2021

The only Iseikai I have found worth watching were My Life as a Villainess and SSSS Gridman. The first one upends all expectations (to the point where calling it a "subversion" almost misses the point entirely) just to have some honest-to-God wholesome fun with the idea (the show is about a...

Re: GKids releasing NGE Blu-Ray in North America 2021

I'm sure they rather wanna be found side by side with a roster of Ghibli movies than associating themselves with stuff like "My sister told me I'm a pedophile, so I isekai'd into a world in which I can fuck 8 year olds *and* am the strongest and best around without putting any work or effort i...

Re: Are there two AAA ships in trailer 3?

^ They're not in the same shot, but the scene as it appears in the teaser feels like a “Shot-Reverse-Shot” edit of two different vessels. I rarely question the use of that technique, especially in trailers or teasers. There’s just not enough information in the teaser in order to make a judgement cal...

Re: Who will being seeing 3.0+1.0 in Japan?

Lupin III: The First got some State side screen time this year, even in the middle of a pandemic. Hopefully the same happens with Shin Eva, so I can fret and worry over whether or not I can risk watching it in theaters.

But a trip to Japan is not happening for me.

Re: Eva Screening From July 1995 (pre-release!) at a US Convention!

The audio quality was pretty good, actually. The videographer seemed to have been plugging his video camera directly into the video feed for the video rooms where anime was watched. Many VHS camcorders had a “VCR” setting, where the camera could be plugged into a VCR and record video and sound from ...

Fascinating. I guess that kinda makes sense, but it's impossible to decipher all that from the grammatically weird "n-th Children" phrase. Central Anime is still up? O_o Yeah, man! Their forum still seems somewhat active and their website is still up like it's some anime version of the Spa...

I've no idea how they got their hands on an early copy of Eva Ep 01, but sometime tomorrow I plan on creating an account on their forum to ask questions and stuff. This intrigues me to no end.

Re: Eva Screening From July 1995 (pre-release!) at a US Convention!

Actually translating it as "First of the Children" would also make sense to me, and I wonder why that compromise wasn't made. Maybe using the word "Children" is meant to distinguish NGE from NTE, which does actually use "First Child," IIRC.

Oh, and by the way-Netflix's subs still have the plural "Children" form as the designation of an individual pilot. 25 years of English-speaking fans and translators keeping up the good fight and making sure other English-speaking fans don’t go insane trying to read any dumb transliteratio...

What's this "Not for sell or rent" thing about? It got me curious because i guess they tried to mix it with the ending credit. And obviously the destiny of any tape like this is getting sold or rented. Sorry for such a dumb question. My guess is that, at least within terms of the fansubbe...

Re: Eva Screening From July 1995 (pre-release!) at a US Convention!

That is really cool, and a strange bit of Eva history on top of that. Someone ought to put this up on the wiki somewhere, but I have no idea where it would even go Much of the Wiki is (rightfully) dedicated to canon and lore materials. If there are any Wiki entires detailing the fans' relationship ...

Eva Screening From July 1995 (pre-release!) at a US Convention!

A couple years ago at a convention on the US east coast a friend of mine handed me a VHS tape. He said there was something about Evangelion stuff being on it or something. I was intrigued, but didn't get around to actually looking at it until just last week. Little did I know that it was a screening...

Re: How do you feel about grown ups watching anime?

^ I see what you’re saying, but I probably wouldn’t use that verse to describe certain depictions of sex, violence, or fan service. No where in that passage does to mention art, which brings its own contexts to the subjects it depicts. Also, even outside of art, I wouldn’t call the actions depicted ...

Re: Do you think Kaworu will come back in 3.0+1.0?

Eh. I see where their frustrations come from, though. Like, imagine if every depiction of a white dude in film was along the same lines as Val Kilmer in a nipple suit for Batman Forever. After so many decades of that, we’d at least start making some fun drinking games focused on that trope.

Re: Do you think Kaworu will come back in 3.0+1.0?

It’s kinda “Bury Your Gays,” but Shinji still probably subverts that in both canons as being the surviving bi between the two. I do agree that Eva’s usage of the trope seems to have not aged in step with other media, though. Back in the 90’s the main character being presented with a homosexual attra...

I think debating if lolicon stuff is morally wrong is the only thing worth a debate. And even there it's hard to come to an objective answer, regardless of how icky it might make you feel. That's part of the issue I find with the "they're only drawings" argument. It's an accurate descript...
