    Rei and Asuka are in the film in as much that there are two major female characters, and one is a quiet, intelligent and emotionless to the point of near autism young Japanese woman, and the other is young, half-Japanese westerner who is brash, disarmingly informal, and a little sexually forward. It’s Rei and Asuka.

    I watched Shin Godzilla over the weekend and it is hilarious how much that movie is just a long episode of Evangelion. It’s even got Rei and Asuka in it!

    25/26 are good, in the context of everything we got. But if you were a fan of the programme when it was first shown in 1996, with no indication of a movie coming or anything, they are absolute bullshit. A show finale has to do more than just explore and complete the character arc of the main character. There are a host of other characters and an entire plot that are just given extremely oblique hints as to their fate. When watching the series through, you like 25 and 26 because you know that End of Eva is coming up after to wrap everything up. In 1996 they did not know that.

    It's not an urban myth, Anno has just denied it, and people have believed that denial. I guess the fact that the final two episodes of Eva being a surreal jazz odyssey would also make them much cheaper to produce is just a coincidence. I wonder what reasons led to the same thing happening on every single other TV anime series he made? In Nadia: Secret of Blue Water the characters all hang out on the island of no plot development and even less animation value for dozens of episodes, and eventually spurt out an underwhelming ending. The final episodes of both Gunbuster and Kare Kano are literally just the camera panning over storyboards. Seems Hideaki Anno has an odd penchant for the visual flair of extremely cheap to produce endings. What a strange quirk for a creator.

    Don’t watch dubs in general, unless you’re a child.
  6. Bo Peep 100% had a “life begins at 40!!” divorcee vibe going on. She’s bitter after her past relationship didn’t work out and now thinks that she doesn’t need a man/kid in her life.
  7. It was kind of weird that they made an allegory about finding love after divorce into a film for children, but I think that Toy Story 4 largely made it work.
  8. Game Boy games were always around £20, so DX was always a “full price” title.
  9. It’s worth pointing out that back when BotW was first shown (before it had that name), there was speculation that Link was actually Zelda, or just a girl now, since he looked a bit feminine. But Nintendo came out pretty quickly and stated, no, that’s Link, he’s a boy, and you only play as him. So at the very minimum, this would represent a change in messaging.
  10. Impressions from Michael Huber here, who if you’re not aware, is the guy who famously openly wept live on stream when Shenmue 3 was announced. Skip to 58 mins:
  11. There’s plenty of scope for huge open spaces underground. Massive, Mines of Moria-style caverns with glittering crystals all over the place. Like that bit in Skyrim when you go down some caves and then come out in a giant area with a town and castles and all sorts that’s like a smaller open world all by itself.
  12. Can someone explain to me what the big deal is about downloading a different launcher on PC?
  13. It’s a cutscene and all the cutscenes in BotW were prerendered. I wouldn’t infer too much from technical aspects. Anyway, I’ll repost what I thought in the E3 thread: Also, the fact that Zelda has had a haircut suggests that she maybe playable or at least more active than previously. Seems like the most likely reason they would change her hairstyle is to make it easier to animate her without hair flapping about and clipping through stuff.
  14. That game won’t be out for over a year and it is heavily rumoured that new, improved Switch models will be out soon. I’d save your money.
