Hey pals, long time reader, small time poster.

I love the images in evangelion that when you link them together you can't believe someone made that connection. If you are wondering what I mean I am talking about images like those in http://evacommentary.org/appendix/recyclopedia.html

Specifically the one where Misato grabs Shinji by the head just like sachiel does to unit-01, or the one where Rei and Shinji make the same pose in the hospital.

I know that there are other images that have "shock value" like this, I remember specifically the one where the cross on the post in EoE looks like the elevator doors or the bridge bunnies look like the kids in the school when they plair air guitar and read manga. Is there another gallery of these repeat images or "shock value" images where when put next to each other make you go "WHOA!!!!!"

Thanks in advance and sorry if there is already a post like this!

PPS I made a connection of repeat imagery that I never saw anyone else make, so this is my contribution to these boards (I'm sure it's been noticed):

In ep 11 with Matriel, Asuka kicks a door open to find Matriel staring her down. Later in that episode Asuka kicks a door open fairly similarly with Unit-02.

Those sorts of things used to get posted about regularly back in ANF's heyday. It was lots of fun trying to hunt down them all; the show oozes with parallelism and 'you never see anything just once'. Do keep in mind that NGE doesn't just do it using visuals alone, but with situations and dialogue as well.

Here's a couple of archived threads to check out:

- Devoted to the topic
- First three pages here have some
- Can always ignore the weird theorizing here

A lot of Shin-seiki's old stuff points out examples left and right, too.
What if... Kaworu bonded with Misato instead of Shinji, and the two of them were siblings?

The way Shinji's looking at the blood on his hand in the recylopedia (episode one and episode whatever) is the same way he looks at the sperm on his hand in End of Evangelion.

What do u mean by "shock value"?

I think that the similar but edited pictures are cool, but I don't realy see what the Evangelion crew were trying to get at.

Someone mind explaining to my dense mind?

Anno stated in an interview that he thought Japan was "a nation of children".

What the "shock" imagery is is stuff like the bridge bunnies doing various things, then having another scene where it shows schoolchildren doing the same things as the bridge bunnies. The "shock" isn't what Americans would typically think of it is, its more of those, "you make the connection, and you sit bolt upright when you realize what he did there."

They're not EXACT counterparts, though. The true counterpart to Shinji's semen-stained hand is when he's staring at Misato's bloody cross in the entry plug later.

Two posts in and I've already been Reichu'd! :kawaii:

I thought that the bodily fluids would have given enough leeway, but I'm a newbie.

That's hilarious considering the true definition of "being Reichu'd" which was borne out of the IRC.

I don't have screencappage, but hopefully, the descriptions will suffice...

* The shot of Rei looking down on Kaworu when she shows up in Terminal Dogma

+

* The shot of Asuka looking down on Shinji after he spills coffe on his shirt in EoE
If I'm pissing you off, just remember: it was Magami No ER who told me about this place, so blame him/her.

Also, I haven't been here in a while; where was the image request thread again? I'm pretty sure I can provide/host pretty high res images if anyone wants them.

Rei's expression isn't quite as harsh, although it's very subtle. Look at the tilt of her eyebrows, for one.

Quick way to find the thread: Click on "Threads" above, then "Chit-Chat", then do a word search for "image request".

Actually, Rei almost looks sad (to me, anyway).

Ah, gotcha. For some reason I thought it was stickied.

Jeez, was it necessary to make the images so big? A 512x384 and a 512x288 would have sufficed...

Arigato.



Here's something that could be seen as an example of overanalysis:

Yeah, I think the concepts/implications are different. Note how Shinji's expression is changing, while it looks like Rei's duplication is intended to draw attention to her clone status.

I miss the detail of the bigger pictures. Is there any way we can still access them?

Oh, how I love people who sacrifice their time to do nifty little things like take a kabillion screenshots.
I really enjoyed all those screenshots of Misato yelling the same thing at the same angle.
You can't really blame them for recycling shots (refering to "because we're cheap"), I dont exactly think it's "easy" to animate a 26 episode series frame by frame in the early 90's.
Ever find it a little ironic that the theme for Rebuild of Evangelion is "Beautiful World"?

Disney's been animating full-length films (very well too, I might add) for over 70 years. It may not be "easy," but it's definitely possible.
