Re: Does Asuka see Shinji as her Senpai?

Asuka sees herself as the best Eva pilot, and, while her interactions with Shinji and Rei convince her that teamwork and friendship is the better path than being a lone wolf, Asuka never admits that she isn’t the best Eva pilot. If anything, the movies still leaves us assuming that Asuka thinks tha...

Does Asuka see Shinji as her Senpai?

Yes i know the title is a bit clickbaity but as weird as it sounds it's something I think best describes the way rebuild handles Asukas relationship with Shinji. Without making a big post I'll try and make the case. Asuka starts out as a rather self centered loner that believes she needs only hersel...

Re: What are aspects you actually like about Shikinami compared to Soryu as a character?

I'd say it's the fact that Shikinami isn't a social butterfly. It's the one thing that never made much sense to me regarding Soryu, given her background it's so weird how easily she is able to fake being social and open. Soryu didn't want to open herself and desired "adultness" above anyth...

Re: Cowboy Bebop

I'm in the cautiously optimistic camp on this one, Bebop is one of those properties that can transition to live action quite easily.

Re: [NEWS] Neon Genesis Evangelion coming to Netflix Spring 2019

I hope it does have an english dub available cause as much as i like eva, i'm not dealing with subtitles on my TV. It's already annoying reading them on a much smaller computer monitor, on a larger TV it'd be awful. ^ I probably mentioned this in the other thread but it bares repeating. For One Punc...

Re: If Mari and Asuka are/were Gay. . .

So, then what's the point of including her at all? And don't you say "commercial intent" just because there is one guy at Khara who may or may not have said that at one point - do you really believe that Anno would allow something into his masterpiece that doesn't have significance? If so...

Re: You Can Start Again

Lots of action and things happening without getting confusing, nothing to be paranoid about. So looks like things are finally hitting the fan, that does makes me wonder if uber Rei was actually after the Evas or simply using that tactic to lure the actual target to a more easily accessible area.

Re: Mark .09, Adams Vessel, Unit 13, and the stolen AAA WUNDER

Core talk My thought process on this is figuring out if core corrosion is something intrinsic of cores or even just based on energy "levels". So the examples cited by Reichu, is the corrosion caused by the type of core or is it the high energy event involved (activation of Wunder and an a...

Re: Mark .09, Adams Vessel, Unit 13, and the stolen AAA WUNDER

I don't have a real explanation for why Eva-01 creates a core cocoon in the orbital prison, but the fact that she creates one in the Wunder as well is similarlyn unresolved matter, so I'll throw a wild guess out there. Tying into the idea that the Wunder was the Adams' ship, maybe the Adams (in the...

Re: If Shinji commits suicide...

Touching back on the topic of suicide, I don't think Shinji has it in him to attempt it, whether because he's more resilient than he seems or because he just doesn't think he's worth it. He didn't try after Kaworu told him the big lie or after Fuyutsuki shot down his last hope that he had at least ...

Re: Debate the quality of Rebuild here. [2]

I think one of the things that has hurt NTE compared to NGE is the huge time gap between "episodes". In NGE you'd only have to wait a week to see the next step of the story, and even its movie was only 2 years after the main series conclusion. It's been 6 years (and counting) since 3.0 so ...

Re: What are the "Adams"?

Right now i'm into the idea that the Wunder is itself an Adams. Now i know it sounds silly given that it's a giant ship but angelic entities have shown a certain...elasticity with their body shape. Zeruel grew a Rei body, Unit-1 was evolving into something different at the end of 2.0, Unit-13 grew t...

Re: Evangelion Pic Thread 10: The Society for the Appreciation Of The Premium Girl (and her friends)

Re: Rebuild outside of Evageeks: Many reactions

I think something to remember is that sites such as EVGks are as insular as any other fan sites of different fictional works, it's a place where things are discussed and analyzed, meaning that you arrive at a certain understanding of it that you wouldn't get from more casual places or discussions.

Great chapter, that twist that cliffhanger :devil: Anyway Looks like things are going to pick up soon as NErv looks to be gearing up to something. Shinji continues to be a rather good mentor when it comes to piloting and i feel some foreshadowing from Asukas "just live your life" line as S...

Re: Rewatching the Rebuilds, and my thoughts

-There's some genuinely great shots that help to convey particular moods (the far-off shot of Rei and Gendo eating dinner is appropriately distant, I like the closeness used in the various shots when Shinji and Asuka share the same bed). This sounds silly, but think of it this way: if one minor asp...

It's what literally happened at the end of 3.0, after she opened up his entry plug one of the first things she does is mention how he didn't come to her aid.

Re: So was Asuka just mad at Shinji in Q?

^ A lot of Shinjis action boil down to bad choices with good intentions. Sounds interesting, do tell :) It's fairly simple, It was stated at the beginning of the movie that Kaji had been away for 2 years without making contact, so it'd be hard for him to have someone grow the watermelons in secret f...
