I had this one idea spun off from a daydream I had (so maybe you kind of know what my state of mind was) of Misato leaving Shinji and Asuka alone in the apartment for the day and Asuka sneaks off to get a little stoned. They spend a little time in the apartment alone and maybe Shinji smells ...

That is a guy in serious need of help: what is he on disability for? Migraines. He used to paint houses but he'd often be out in the hot sun painting so it didn't exactly help his condition. He doesn't get them as often so either the prescriptions he's taking help or they happen mor...

Well, my Dad is turning in a alcoholic (in addition to all the other drugs he takes :uhh: ) but it feels like he's too far gone to know the impact it has on the rest of my family. My Mom is the only one in the house with a job (I'm going to school, fyi) and he's on disabi...

Well, the thing with Outlaw Star was I DID remember seeing it on Toonami vaguely. It was actually my brother who recommended it to me because I honestly had a hard time recalling it except for the Outlaw Star being piloted by Melfina naked in a watery tube so I probably thought at the time it was fr...

Um, I'm not sure if I have any except Outlaw Star is boring the hell out of me. Granted, I started watching it after finishing Trigun * and its like apples and oranges despite the fact they're both *technically* space westerns and/or involve space pirates but its extremely hard to get throug...

The classroom is essential to show the social aspect of the characters and background characters as this is the place where they converge and socialize, but no more than that. The classroom don't play a role either in the end of the series or The End of Evangelion. At least not a relevant one. ...

The Classroom: What is its Function?

I blame the forum heading being the of the classroom because it reminded of something that bugged me a little in my second watch of Evangelion: Knowing that Shinji's classmates sans Asuka and Rei are potential EVA pilots , why does it seem like every time it cuts to the class in session, the tea...

Yeah, I think that would work. It would be less daunting to start one big top-down overview of the series and instead focus on one or two individual tropes. Also I'm a bit stuck because I haven't read any of the meta-commentary (what Hideaki Anno or Sadamoto has said about their intent o...

I think I was intending it to be more academic than "personal", as you said. Now it is occurring to me how daunting it would be track through other older mecha anime to draw attention to how Evangelion takes those tropes and expectations to draw you (the hypothetical viewer) into t...

Well, like I said, I'm pretty new to the genre itself so that's why I thought examining specifically the media tropes Evangelion expands on, subverts or even downright deconstructs was too obvious to bring up. The only thing is my basis of reference is limited in that regard so I couldn'...

Ugh, so many. I need to actually finish a series before I start one up but I'm a terrible procrastinator and I have been in a certain mood to watch a certain show so I put it off. The most recent shows: -I have a VHS tape I got from Goodwill of the American localization of Space Battleship Yamat...

Wes Anderson's first movie Bottle Rocket. Its weird given how almost devoid it is of the so-called Wes Anderson movie tropes (close-ups of objects grouped together, twee affectations, bright or pastel colors) except for the vintage soundtrack and composition of shots.

It occurred to me that this article idea is kind of obvious but I couldn't find an similar article on the site (if anybody can find if one already exists, I'd be more than happy to add to it) but it would be an article on how specifically Evangelion subverts and deconstructs mecha an...
