Re: Anno Khara Expo Interview: Eva Going Gundam; Films/TV/etc. From Different Directors Possible

^ Well, I would argue that Anno as an industry professional who is leagues above Tomino giving honest advice to the scriptwriting catastrophe that is Gundam is a nice gesture. I just think Anno should do whatever he wants and discussing it here is unhealthy navel-gazing of our own demands that will ...

Re: What would you change about Evangelion?

Do we really need to play the gender card here? I assure you, I'm very much a feminist. I love strong women, but I don't like bullies. And Asuka just seems like a bully to me. That's pretty much the entire point anyways: Asuka is just as messed up as Shinji, just in the opposite way. If someone saw...

Re: Anno Khara Expo Interview: Eva Going Gundam; Films/TV/etc. From Different Directors Possible

Yes, 100%. If I became a famous director, and people wanted to criticize my work in a respectful manner, I would be happy. Trust me, having to listen to people who know it better despite never having even worked in the field gets super old very fast. I'm a firm believer in Death of the Author: the ...

Re: Anno Khara Expo Interview: Eva Going Gundam; Films/TV/etc. From Different Directors Possible

The concept of a consumer review of an artistic piece is kind of demented, I agree, but I guess if that's how some people react to art so be it. It definitely explains all the discourse around Star Wars I've seen on Twitter. Either way, I will repeat myself now for the fifth time, I hope you underst...

Re: What would you change about Evangelion?

^ Don't forget that we've been conditioned to see assertive, boisterous women as nags. I'm positive, if Asuka was a dude, none of that would be a problem. Male Asuka would be perceived as a cool dudebro at worst/best and a funny doofus at worst/best. The thing with the fan service... The German dub ...

Re: Evangelion Pic Thread 10: The Society for the Appreciation Of The Premium Girl (and her friends)

What can I say other than I love postmodernism! And I see another amazing statement from Yoneyama. The leering angle at which we look at her, the sultry look in her eyes, the way the tits are positioned just over the surface in a way that would be an uncomfortable pose for her, but makes her body se...

Re: Anno Khara Expo Interview: Eva Going Gundam; Films/TV/etc. From Different Directors Possible

Well, like it or not, Eva is a product to be consumed. Like all forms of mass media, it exists to make money. Of course, artistic taste can factor in at some point, but acting like a movie about giant robots is an undiluted artistic creation straight from Anno's soul is just pretentious in my opini...

Re: Anno Khara Expo Interview: Eva Going Gundam; Films/TV/etc. From Different Directors Possible

^ While I agree with the sentiment, when it's about a consumer product, like if a certain burger should return to the MacDonald's menu, I just think it's preposterous to argue about an artists decision of what to create next, when it's such a personal decision to make. I put fans in quotation marks,...

Re: Evangelion Pic Thread 10: The Society for the Appreciation Of The Premium Girl (and her friends)

Quite the different vibe from Asuka's little stint in the bathtub in the show, lol. Her technical skills are amazing, and it evokes an uncomfortable feeling inside of me, which is an amazing feat and speaks to the power of her art. To elaborate I'm used to seeing sexualized drawings of 14 year olds ...

I get you guys, but nobody asked for our opinion. Especially when you've reached a certain size *everybody* thinks they know better what to do than you, it's rather tiresome, honestly. Especially since the people talking with most conviction are rarely even in the same field as you are. We don't eve...

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

It's funny to see everyone here looking for subtle "plot clues" and the artwork is Shinji and the Eva cast getting together to have a picnic to stare at Unit 01 ( the movie ) and Shinji is invited the viewer ( the artists who made the film ) to come join their picnic ( seeing the complete...

Considering his remarks about over obsessive fans, I'd like to think "concern" would be the only thing he felt if he knew.

Re: Evangelion:3.0+1.0 Trailer 3 Discussion

Anno expressed some pretty lofty ambitions back when this whole "I'm going to retell Eva" thing started over a decade ago. He said he wanted to fight stagnation in the industry and move an exhausted industry forward. Have the trailers for 3.0 + 1.0 given anyone hope he'll actually pull th...

Re: How did you first get into Evangelion?
