No no, Kaworu is Tom Bombadil. Both represent digressions from the "main" story that some fans deride as pointless sidetracking, while others hail the characters as worthy microcosms encapsulating the tale's broader themes.

Anno certainly knew Rebuild was going to be "distributed in the US and Europe". Not only did he NOT dial back the religious stuff, he doubled down on it in some respects. Tsurumaki may take a blase approach, but I don't think that attitude represents the head honcho. The religious refe...

If Anno wants Rebuild to connect with "old school" Eva, he should make it feel like we're one piece of scotch tape away from the animation falling off our screen.

When the Death Note live action movies came out, I went to one of the screenings presented by the U.S. distributor just before the home video release. It was a Blu-Ray, and the picture was awful. I hope Funi isn't pulling the same thing. It's just not worth seeing that way.

I feel like fans have in some ways over -corrected when it comes to Eva's relationship with religion. Nobody thinks it's a commentary on Christianity any more, which is a good thing. However, it's not quite the superficial window dressing some consider it to be, either. The show does som...

Here's a question: can you make a series ABOUT teenage sexuality, which Evangelion partly is, without sexualizing the characters? The OP names the masturbation scene as "no better example" of this, but I see it more as representing some of the core themes of Eva in general. It doesn...

Dammit! Meant MacAvery, yes. Haven't seen that video, but I believe you of course. If they didn't ask him, that's pretty baffling. Still don't understand him walking away from the industry in '99, though. Maybe his conflicts with ADV soured him on everything. Too bad.

I think almost everyone would want Swasey to return. The implication seems to be that the decision was more his than Funi's. I don't get that. So he wants to do other things, sure. But why should it be one or the other? It's not as if Gendo's dialogue is gonna occupy much of his time...

Plus, Weaver only voiced Toji's few lines in Death and Rebirth, so it's not like he had a firm claim to the character.
