So glad to read another Chapter! I don't have any issues with this one. I do have a question though, and forgive me if this already covered before, but when people come back, are they aged physically? Or are they the same age they were from Third Impact? Also, about the title stuff, when I first...

My next favorite to Evangelion would be Mawaru Penguindrum. It's by the same person that did Utena (although I still have yet to watch Utena...) and I simply love the downward spiral of characters, plot twists that keep me on the edge of my seat, the beautiful emotional soundtrack, and s...

What a coincidence! Had a dream about a week ago where a gang of police officers approached me and my group of friends (?), and then the sheriff was mouthing something I couldn't hear due to the distance between his and my group. I had my head turned around (not my whole body), a...

Why? The entire creative team behind the original has moved to khara. If anything it makes no sense for Gainax to keep it. Especially when they're just a skeleton company now. I agree fully. Creative liberty must be pretty limited under modern Gainax, as not only has Khara branched from it, so ...

Maybe I'll change Asuka's first PhD to something more practical to Eva, like quantum mechanics or bio-engineering. She's going to be involved in the science side of Eva, working with Dr. Akagi and Dr. Ibuki, as well as being the Pilots field leader (Although for a while the only pil...

I thought Ritsuko was shot in the torso area. Interesting but odd fanart heh.

The second one is quite good though, for sure!

@Sorrow While I agree firmly the way EoTV is done is exceptionally daring and genius, I think you're discrediting EoE far too much. Your main point of Instrumentality being too obvious in EoE is rather inconsistent to how you praise the series. Is it ever realistic that you or I will pilot super...

If anything I think having things to argue about has actually increased my appreciation for the original show. Not so much with Rebuild though, as until it's actually over I think people are just wasting a lot of time for no gain bickering about things that might not even happen. I totally agre...

I thought it was stunningly intelligent that a fictional character should imagine what he is within other people's minds, by imagining their minds and how he views himself - I thought I was the only one. Of course, I was to be disappointed. The truth is far more straightforward, and Anno, geniu...

I believe the only surface level of TTGL vibes was how Ha's finale, and by some extension, Jo's finale, felt like a "ROW ROW, FIGHT DA POWER" fist pumping action with tons of explosions, badassery, and a sense of just how bigger than life the action was conveyed. Granted, never was...

I wonder.... how many folks were satisfied with the just original 26 episode package and felt EoE wasn't necessary. :| With my first time experience, given my depressive outlook with life at the time, I really felt satisfied with EoTV. I really had no idea what had happened story wise (some...

It's not about balance so much as maintenance. I mean, quadrupeds have their advantages (we use 4-legged spider mechs in construction even now), but for combat you want tracks or wheels, not legs. Legs are just a nightmare to maintain. No wonder the Empire crumbled so easily in Star War...

He saves her life and exhibits an undeniable streak of heroism. That isn't seen anywhere else in the show, not even in eps. 6 or 19 (which are moments of incredible badassery, mind, but not on her behalf ). The initial point you were defending is that this episode was somehow lynchpin o...

No, it very much is not. That single episode is the reason Asuka's so damn conflicted about Shinji throughout the rest of the show. It's also what shows us that the Angels are indeed human, and it's where we learn that Asuka has a college degree. Most of the action is skippable, but the...

I believe Magma Diver is the first time we see Misato's scar. Other than that, it's... Skipable, yeah.

To be fair, Q ended on a pretty happy note (Evangelion happy). Asuka was all "I'm gonna kill you Shinji!" for much of the movie, but by the end, she is determined to snap Shinji out of his self-defeated expression. Cue all three, Asuka, Shinji, and Rei, walking together.

I don't read it like that, since parental affection isn't exclusive the way a romantic pairing is. Shinji doesn't "lose" because Gendo is nice to Rei, he just wants the same thing for himself. It's a different situation. Just seems less likely to be a coincidence to me giv...

It's most simply described as a reset; but it's not as simple as that, because, for instance, the remains of an MPE are seen as a "ancient artefact". To add on: Shinji is also carrying Misato's necklace still. He also runs into Asuka at a subway, and their interaction is simpl...
