ok so this is probably going to be a longer post than usual but i’ll be adding some pictures to add some colour and spice to keep things interesting. also i’ll be talking about
shin seiki evangerion aka
neon genesis evangelion as well as a lesser known gem so i hope you don’t get bored halfway through. i may even make it a 2-part blog post. that could be fun.
where to begin…?
i started writing a post on 7月7日 which was much closer to when i finished
eva but i’m actually rather glad i didn’t get too far with that. i’ve had time to think about it and let the show sink in now (as well as do some basic research i had been avoiding so as to keep safe from spoilers). speaking of spoilers, i need to write my feelings about them in the future. also, for reference, i did not watch using netflix’s subs for various reasons. i did watch the last official sub release, though, because fansubs that live up to my standards either don’t exist or are too much of a hassle to find (similar to
jojo come to think of it; at least s01).
i mean, sure, asuka’s expression is golden, but… why post it here and now?
an excellent question! and one answer is we are talking about subtitles and i can’t help but wonder what was going on with the episode names at the end. (ok also if you want to know i have a lot of pictures i want to use in my post and most of my pictures i have at my disposal right now are screencaps of some of the later
eva episodes and some delightfully 萌え
sora no method animations) i mean, i bet she made that expression after seeing this:
ok i’m going to be honest here. i spent way too smegging long messing with [expletives removed] html and css and markdown because they are [even more and exponentially more offensive language removed] so in short this is very likely to be more pictures than actual insights. i was blogging to relax myself but as soon as i realised there was something i could do i didn’t know about i inevitably started messing with things and breaking them and researching web shit that i didn’t need to know and now? well, now i’m just smegging hungry. so i’ll be back to writing more (hopefully) when i’ve gotten something to eat.
in the meantime,
also, ever wonder why asuka, who’s german, has kanji in her name? i mean, the things separating her from the japanese are her bombastic personality, the fact she has three names, and maybe her height and colour of her hair and skin if you are selective enough in the people you compare her with and your methods of doing so. her having trouble with kanji and japanese which are more things that the viewer is told than actually witnesses (most of the time) i guess could also count.
dude get something to eat you have no direction with anything you’re saying and you aren’t even fact checking yourself. eat!
yah, ok fine. before i do, i thought i should link more info about the japanese title i showed earlier for anyone interested.
now that my food is heating up, let me lay out the questions i hope to answer in part two of this blog post. first: i will address what the ultimate question is and why i think
sora no method and
evangelion are worth being talked about in the same blog post. oh and before i go any further, i realise i forgot to state this disclaimer sooner: i have only seen the
eva series so far. i have not seen
end of eva or any of the other films. just throwing that out there.
one final note: i know the date on this is wrong now. but i’m not changing it.
ok stay tasty, everyone, and i’ll see you in either part two or a filler blog post if i don’t feel like writing part two for a while.
