The New Kids Are Weird

What I find so striking in a hilarious "and history repeats itself" sort of way are how all the newbies have come out of the woodwork asking the same questions from like 15 - 20 years ago about the basics upon watching the show + EoE...Putting the dub debates aside, we never had it so easy...

Re: Netflix Release General Discussion

That's a bit of an extreme take on part of the accusers lol But Evangelion becoming available every decade or so does subject it to the zeitgeist, thereby inviting new interpretations (separate from what is being leveled at Khara's translator). Keeps things interesting. I saw one really dumb articl...

Re: Netflix English Dub Discussion

I have addressed this in my new article about the lines. Reichu helped out, too! Dan is directly credited as the translator for this new release. https://wiki.evageeks.org/Theory_and_Analysis:Kaworu%27s_lines_in_Episode_24#Background_for_the_translation Great, so now we know who to crucify...I'm st...

Re: The Endless Question: The Souls of the Mass Production Evangelion Series

There is one profoundly disturbing option here. Lets say that NERV had backup cores like in the case of unit 3. They had full class of pilors compatible with those cores. The said class was evacuated. I ask where... Imagine if it was revealed that the pilots of those MPs are Asukas and Shinjis clas...

Re: Netflix Release General Discussion

Why ADV Perfect or Platinum? I've tended to see Platinum raised up as the better of the home releases. Oh of course. That wasn't meant tone greater than or less than I was just listing them with "arrows" in the progression of when they came out. Sorry that wasn't clear. I feel like the Pl...

Re: Netflix Release General Discussion

but it's also worth remarking that you could call ADV's VHS version "the original" in terms of translation, in which case you'd probably be interested to know that it used "like" (at least in the subs - don't know about the dub). They did change it for the first DVDs, admittedly...

Re: Netflix Release General Discussion

I thought that this was interesting:

It's an opinion piece, but it does make some level of sense about context, even with the difference being split on "Love" or "Like"

Re: Netflix Release General Discussion

. Looking back on former forum antics, the "not actually a literal mother, you sillies!" thing was presaged by this thread . Maybe this was the right translation choice, but for me the ambiguity of what these beings actually were enriched the experience greatly, and having the khara-sanct...

Re: Netflix English Dub Discussion

There's places where the ADV/Manga dub does have its cartoonish moments, but there's life to them at least. This. All of the passion seems so sucked out of their performances. Yes, The ADV/Manga dubs are FAR from perfect. But, in being so rough and tumble and rough around the edges, there's such a ...

Re: Netflix English Dub Discussion

Some people value authenticity over quality and they tend to be on the 'no dub' policy not because they think all dubs are low quality trash or anything. Of course there are people that are the latter but it does not really seem to be the case in this thread. It still comes across as snobbish behav...

"Grace" is a perfectly valid translation of koui . (Scroll down to the Wordnet entries here .) Considering who and what Kaworu is, evoking God is not exactly inappropriate. :p The uproar over suki and cries over -- lmfao -- "censorship" makes me just shake my head. You're correc...

Netflix Genesis Evangelion

Well, judging by that, I kind of miss Amanda Wynn Lee and Mangle Entertainment. And you guys thought ADV was bad? Netflix: "He's the third children" SMH And Fly Me to The Moon is gone.. Basically, and the Evangelion subreddit will vindicate this line of thinking, we're Naoko and the new du...

Re: The Rebuild of Evangelion and Evangelion Final Lie Somewhere In Between The Ending of the TV Series and The Movie(Eo

I like this theory as a kind of synthesis. Its strange too. The image, as simple as it is, gives me EoE vibe with the "kid drawings" shown during the Komm Susser Tod sequence... At the same time, the image here is both desolate, they hopeful..It gives a very strange mixed feeling that's ha...

Re: The Sandbox - Formulating an Analysis

I Another thing that clearly does not belong in the past/ is an insertion is the NERV pyramid, which is where we have the connection to the present, or what the present felt like to the part of Shinji that is still stuck as this lonely four-year old in a playground, and this is where it ties into b...

Not sure about the other points other than that the two girls are Asuka and Rei and the "mama" is Misato...However, I also took the swing to be a kind of pendulum..And it goes still and "dies" much like Shinji's cassette player...This is EoE after all, and like the setting sum, w...

Re: Last Movie You Watched

I went to go see Us. Given that I wasn't particular scared or frightened by Get Out, I wasn't disappointed with this one. Granted, they are both smart films and have good ideas, but Get Out was badly mis-marketed as horror when really it's more a psychological drama with a sci-fi twist. Us, on the o...
