Can we just hope that this time around, the show doesn't reduce the characters to anime archetypes :facepalm: It's quite likely that it'll happen again. It has to be remember that Awakening, for better or for worse, kept the franchise going. So it seems like they are aiming to repeat a ...

THAT TRAILER BURNS WITH THE FURY OF A THOUSAND SUNS!!! Except for the fact that it might turn everybody into Vincent. Playing through FF7 again, he seriously does go on a lot about the darkness and how much his life sucks, in a way kind of separating him from the rest of the cast. Advent Children ma...

As long as the Fic's good (which may be asking a lot for fanfiction, I don't really care. Then again, I don't really have a preferred ship (except for Shinji/Karl in the manga). I'd be fine with a well written Rei x Pen-Pen fic. That being said, when a Shinji x Rei fanfic...

A Japanese only game that I got based on other recommendations is Chaindive. It's an awesome platforming/beat em up game where you use your ELECTRIC GRAPPLE HOOK to grab aloft enemies and platforms. You also can rewards for "chaining" defeating enemies as well. It's quite addicting...

I think that the question of whether he was capable or not is rather moot in the context of what happened in the series. At any rate, if you believe the two endings are separate continuities (like I do) then Shinji DID come to a realization in one instance. Even so, self-realization is a pro...

I'm still hoping for KH3, although I know it's a longshot. A Dark Souls 3 is definitely something to look forward to, though! :D

Shinji: Any 70s muscle car. He has to compensate, somehow. You know Shinji's not the type to try and stand out. And he's not freaking Cloud when it comes to overcompensating. Just as his future career's probably going to be something like a customs broker or accountant, the question of ...

Hell, they should just do a Smash Emblem spin-off. No shortage of characters for the roster there. You mean I can finally main Serra!? You all know that she was the best character of Fire Emblem 7. Forget all this Awakening stuff. Serra and Lyn are the REAL best girls of Fire Emblem. http://www.fe-...

A couple of games for the SNES that I could mention are Super Punch Out and the SNES Fire Emblem games. Both of these tend to be overlooked, with the Super Nintendo Punch Out being my favorite in the series honestly. Thracia 776 is ridiculously hard, but with great music and one of the only passable...

The New Super Luigi U expansion pack is also a necessary add-on for New Super Mario Bros U. While the addons for Wind Waker are nice, I'd only pay that much for it if you didn't have the original. Otherwise, most of the best suggestions have already been made. If you don't have to pay mu...

I'm not sure about the new weapon triangle. Before I read the article, I was thinking it might just be a magic triangle for the three elements. Also, limited weapon usage was one of my favorite features of the series, so the fact that it's being taken out makes me sad. Maids and butlers usin...

Then there's the fact that the average writer/doujin artist seem to go out of his way to portray futa as repulsively as possible. There is a strange fascination with making futanari have a ridiculous sized instrument, as well as just making them gross in general. It's almost always done thi...

As a believer in economic coercion and a strong anti-libertarian, I often don't think that a forced choice is the same thing as a choice at all. I mean, technically it's a choice to go along with a draft, but it's obvious what choice is expected to be followed. This is probably what Ursu...

Let me explain about the concept of "false consciousness". To be fair, that is sometimes true, but it's typically relatively easy to tell when a work of fiction shoehorned a character in a role for no good reason. In real life, some women will choose to be housewives, and some men wil...

I think it's generally accepted that birds are the descendants of dinosaurs now. Sir David Attenborough described how this is true several times. If you are interested, Archaeopteryx serves as a sort of "missing link" between dinosaurs and modern birds as well.

It depends what you mean by "any other anime", and by "uber masculine", come to that. He probably means someone like post-timeskip Simon. Also, people assign masculinity to results, and Amuro may have whined, but he still got the job done successfully. Depending upon how you thi...

As far as punishing people for acting in traditional gender roles, you could argue that it really only seems to apply to Shinji. Kaji never is punished for traditionally masculine actions whatsoever. Many of the traits which he is most seen as punished for, namely his dependence upon others is typic...

Shinji (or at least the person he was replaced with in EoE) was shown to have several tendencies that can be construed as misogynist, such as his desire to go after unconscious women and asking for people to be nice to him. In fact, while I think the issue is overblown, whenever I hear about...

I agree with SEELE always winning even though their plans didn't seem that great. I honestly think that Eva was meant to mostly be about the characters, and that they almost didn't think many of the overall events were that important. That's why we're still piecing everything togethe...
