People compare Nolan to directors such as Kubrick largely because of the success of The Dark Knight. While I like the film, I can't help but find it to be one of the most overrated movies of the twenty-first century. While it had some decent insights into how people act and Ledger was great, a l...

RahXephon has plenty of substance in it that's not derived from NGE, though. People throw similar accusations at Eureka 7 all of the time. While NGE was incredibly influential, and a lot of later anime took elements from it, I don't think it's fair to say that RahXephon is simply a dumbe...

Oddly specific, but really long game over screens whenever you die. You're just sitting there forever waiting for the screen to end, get out of the game, load your save file... etc.

Also, I agree with Monk Ed about shortcuts.

There's no real average. Some come out weekly or biweekly; others are updated on a monthly basis. Or it could be something like Hiatus x Hiatus, where it is updated very infrequently at the whim of the mangaka. I'm currently somewhat frustrated over the slow and erratic rate that Berserk'...

Gintama 1-25:

So far not meeting the massive amounts of hype, but it's still pretty good. Also, according to some there's supposed to be a slow start. Gintoki's pretty legit.

This part still seems so disconnected with the last scene of the movie. I mean, I know this was deliberate, but still...

I'd agree on this meaning for Rei and Kaworu's shadow here. The heart shaped shadows are both emblematic of unconditional love shown to Shinji.

As someone who'll probably become known as an infamous Shinji defender in my time here, all of the same excuses for him apply to her as well. And while above some examples of rude behavior were pointed out, I think those are about the only ones that are applicable, which aren't very many wit...

Why can't a person have creepy origins and still be popular? For that matter, why do they have to have sexual appeal to be popular? HAL was my favorite character in 2001, and I didn't want to bone the computer. By writing Rei to be JUST a doll in 3.0, they're removing a lot more from the...

I agree that winter soldier was an improvement over the first one, but I liked both Captain America movies. I also finally saw Guardians of the Galaxy recently. I know it was striving for a cheesy goofy feeling, and yet a lot of moments in it simply made me groan. Probably my most disliked Marvel mo...

First off all, Kensuke always came off as incredibly obsessed and annoying to me anyway. Selling demeaning photos of Asuka to support your hobby isn't the healthiest thing to do, anyway. Secondly, even if this is what Anno wants (and I'm starting to think it is), I'm getting tire...

It's just the original idea for Evangelion that Anno wrote. The one that existed before the actual series aired. The ending planned was very different from what actually happened, I believe.

When I personally see Shinji suffering the way he did, being rejected by the only people he could ever call friends, possibly killing Touji and Kensuke? Being made responsible for the worst thing any human being could ever be responsible for? Twice over? This is the issue I see-in reality no one ha...

This could be Great. Or Terrible. Or great and terrible. Still, one issue I have is that they seem to focus much more on the SMT characters. I've only played Nocturne and 4, and they have some interesting characters, but there honestly aren't nearly as many as in Fire Emblem, so putting the ...

Escaflowne is incredibly weird, but I always enjoyed it. I heard that it was originally meant for a longer run, and that may have resulted in some issues with the series.

First off on a tangent, nihilism is just a position rejecting the idea of meaning in life. Although they're typically portrayed that way, not all nihilists have to necessarily have a negative outlook on life. Sadly, many nihilists do take lack of an objective meaning in life as a reason for desp...

Actually, yeah, someone killing themselves over a movie series would be really stupid. I do think people have done it over fiction before, though. Although much larger issues in life tend to make people depressed, the triggers are often ridiculously insignificant. But in this vein, I imagine someone...

Soo... from what I've seen from previous posts, is it not worth it to watch Crystal? I tried watching the first two episodes, but dropped it because it felt bland. Was that the right decision?

I think that sometimes the problem I have is what I think Anno's trying to say to the fans. NGE had a message that it was always better to at least try to reach out to people than to keep yourself inside a closed world of fantasy. At the same time, NTE seems to be trying to say that it's a g...
