Having long ago since read those two translation M did for Evaotaku, cursorily got the better of me and I decided to find out some more information about the Evangelion Cardass Masters Card Game.
The only thing I found when searching on EML are those translations M did, as well as information about a few interesting tidbits, such as one card that confirms Rei IS Lilith and states (paraphrased) Rei has Lilith's soul and Yui's body.
The one piece of info that really made me go WTF was this:
Fan on EML who posted the below pic wrote:The card seems to be named "H-11lv", and the title is the english translation for "Saseida orette". To those familiar with the Japanese version of the show, this line will bring to memory the famous hospital scene in Air, and the "I'm the lowest" or "I'm f*cked up" translation. However, while the context is that one, the image is quite different.
What we see is the aftermath of Third Impact, like in the ending sequence, there is Shinji standing (dressed in his school uniform), his hand, palm up, in front of him, and he's looking at (and casting his shadow upon) an unconscious Asuka, laying of the ground in an unconscious-but-also-inviting-and-somewhat-surrendering pose, her home attire messed up so that all what was visible of her in the original scene is there for Shinji and the viewer to see.
The scan clearly connects the first and final scene of EoE together; so I guess it implies there IS obviously a connection in I NEED YOU in terms of Shinji's getting off (*sob sob* His head falls between her boobies zomg), but more in terms of Shinji's guilt since Asuka doesn't care about that? And what is he holding? Is it Misato's cross or his *ahem* come from Air's opening?
Doing a quick glance, it appears the Moonspeak on here is the one that has this translated text:
"In the sea of LCL, Shinji wished for a world with other people. He desired to meet them again, even if it meant he would be hurt and betrayed. And just as he had hoped/wanted, Asuka was present in the new world. Only Asuka was there beside him. The girl whom he had hurt, and who had been hurt by him. But even so, she was the one he had hoped/wished for...."
The card, like all other info minus EYED's lyrics fails to mention it took her awhile to get there. ^^;
Anyway, the only reason I'm bringing all of this up is because I'm wondering if there any sites out there that have more information on these cards (*cough* FGC! *cough*), since they do seem to be canonical and given the ok by GAINAX? Or are such things (RCB, this, Renewal booklets) simply not reliable because we now have the Classified Information to go by?
