Provided the video isn't getting raped by a DVD player's filters or something, Platinum looks almost exactly the same as Renewal (with the unfortunate addition of interlacing). There are some progressive PAL releases of Platinum with slightly higher resolution and less compression a...

Re: Evangelion Bluray Re-release

A. The original NGE released to bluray. Gainax will do it, sooner or later. Another way to get money from the fans... and one day old DVD players will be obsolete, right? But at least we will get a progressive release, unlike the horrendous interlaced NTSC Platinum. And a decent release of D&R ...

I would probably turn off the TV, exclaim "All's right with the world!" and wait for my turn to get tanged. Done best in a pose similar to Keel's last shot in EoE.

It's quite plausible. Since Lilim/humans need a certain blend of organic elements to survive it seems likely that Lilith would have something to do with making sure those things come into being. However, the other possibility is that this happens more naturally via evolution. IOW, organisms eme...

Maybe it's more blissful not to know. I can't remember context of that. Where does it come from? I quoted him completely out of context, but I've always found that line intriguing given the context of the entire show... Anyway, it's from his first discussion with Yui about Gendo .

If that were true, then who were Gainax planning the Second Angel to be all this time? Sachiel was designated the Third Angel, so the idea of a mysterious Second Angel has been there since day one. Information on even the simple existence of a Second Angel was closely guarded - as we see in episode...
