How could things possibly turn out well for Luke at the end of Empire? After Two Towers, how could things possibly turn out well for Frodo? He's not getting that Ring even close to Mount Doom, obviously...

Rather than look to the past, I'd love to hear Sagisu expand upon the sound of "God's Gift". Electronic elements grounded with strings could create a really compelling score.

Everyone is assuming that the FrankenEva will be constructed the old fashioned way, by human hands, but this may not necessarily be the case. Perhaps Frankie represents yet another example of Evas transforming "on the fly", a la Beast Mode, or the various forms of Mark.09. It's hard to...

Yeah, and very sneaky! I don't think I'd ever realized it without someone telling me. The theory is that they're implying another Asuka mind rape inside Unit-03, though we may never know.

This is sort of dishonest because it's ignoring the context that Kaworu at the time was an entity that had a biological imperative he couldn't ignore or defy except through being killed. And that, y'know, he was raised by the Evil Monolith Suicide Cult. I'm not sure what that partic...

In NGE, Kaworu also says that death is the only absolute freedom(/liberty). He may have a similarly... creative definition of "happy".

Nausicaa 2 would be awesome. I suspect that any further Eva stuff would be a big disappointment, each outing being more mainstream and pedestrian than the last. Some people probably even think that of Rebuild already, though that's a bit harsh, at least until we have the whole package. It's...

I wonder if the reality of Rebuild's Gendo is not unlike Watchmen 's Dr. Manhattan. That is, his sense of quasi-omniscience has detached from normal human experience. If he's completely convinced of his "scenario", there's no reason to get wrapped up in the present since he...

Anno should take it as a supreme compliment that some people think he's stacked the deck against Shinji SO much, they can't imagine how it could possibly end well for him.

Well, he told Sagisu it's going to be the end. Or that they won't be using the preview music again, anyway. I just finished True Detective season 1 last night. If you're someone who gets wrapped up in the minutia of every single detail involving the crime & perpetrator they were purs...

Before Q came out, there was a lot of chatter about Anno's unambiguous endorsement of Shinji at the end of 2.0. The triumphant song and heroic framing meant Anno was 100% behind his character's actions, of course. Anno should be more damning of Shinji's selfish, destructive behavior, was...

I see a trend here. Q was so dark that all of you are ready to jump at anything that may be seen as hope if you squint really really hard. The same thing that Anno does to Shinji happened to a lot of people here. Lowered his/your expectation to the point that you/him got ready to accept scraps and ...

Anno doesn't believe in happy endings so much as the possibility of them. This extends even to things like Shiki-Jitsu and Love & Pop. He doesn't serve his characters happiness on a silver platter, rather, he allows them the potential to seize it. His protagonists don't end up exactl...

Kaworu can't be Tom because Kaworu is still an angel that Shinji has to defeat, and the whole plot is about Shinji defeating these things. By Q, I wouldn't say that's true anymore. Their role has largely been supplanted by Gendo's Nerv. When Shinji reawakens, the fight against them ...
