I keep forgetting about that show, I haven;t seen enough of the older Gainax stuff.

Yeah, don't judge Gainax by their recent stuff. They suck now.

I really think they need to be more subtle with their symbolism, I don't think they know how obvious their symbolism is, like the crosses that appear from defeated Angels, I think that maybe, JUST maybe that might be a Christian reference. I'm not sure, though, it's a little too subtle.

The Christianity stuff in Eva didn't mean a thing, Anno said he put it in because it would feel mysterious to the Japanese audience.

Since the 90s, Christian references are EVERYWHERE in anime, but I guess during Eva's time it would have been mysterious, it's probably what made it "the it thing".

I feel bad for all the people who had theories about what the crosses meant, and then had to realize that it's absolutely meaningless.

You bet your face it looked cool. I wonder why everyone who hates Evangelion because it's "pretentious" or whatever and never seems to mention the fact that 40% of the show is giant robots vs. alien monsters from outer space. I mean, it is pretentious, but still. Giant robots.

NGE was fan abuse at it's finest, and ironically, to me, it has made me view religion as a complete and utter load of BS that was made to frighten the minority as people in high positions pull the strings

remember, the victors write history

also, I think ShinjixRei was a better couple then ShinjixAuska

I actually skipped Eva as a show. I started watching the show, then stopped early. I read the manga and then stopped at volume 3. But I did watch You Are (Not) Alone and am planning to watch You Can (Not) Advance because Beautiful World by Utada Hikaru is AMAZING. Also, it's what Dragon Ball Kai should have been (though ideally they would have actually made a remake of the DBZ, but I guess they thought that was too much trouble).

I like the show that's dubbed "the Eva of the shoujo demographic" a lot more than Eva. Any thoughts on Utena, guys?

Don't think I heard of Utena before but then again the closest thing to anime I've been involving myself with would have to be Catherine if anything right now lol.

Evangelion: The show with many, many plotholes at the end

it ended rather abruptly in my opinion

then I watched a little bit of Eureka Seven, good show

51 (most likely ninja'd though)

What was the latest Gainax work I saw...
Oh yeah, that'd be Medaka Box. Can't really blame them for not doing a perfect job there, after all they're trying to make some sense and consistency out of flipping Medaka Box. I would've liked it if they either tried to be more SHAFT or stayed out of it completely, though. It felt sort of half-assed.
Then again, all anime is basically SHAFT-ized nowadays. Not that I'm complaining (yet).
Ahhh Eva. I will finish it, but it's one of those shows that are hard to get into after having taken a break.

Oh well. Have my first actual drawing for an entire week.

I've had E7 on hold for years now.

Medaka Box was some horrible source selection. Worst thing I've seen from them, even if I did only watch 1 ep and some of the final fight. Animation was worse than Shana.

I watched Utena when it was on the Funi channel (back in it's "crappy quality, good shows" period, aka its early days). It's a good show, but it had such strange style, and I liked it for that uniqueness. It wasn't my favorite show, but it was pretty good, and wasn't anything close to "a generic tomboy protagonist" anime.

All I remember from watching Utena, was a gagillion swords piercing the MC.

Bah, I don't know whether to buy Galactic Civilizations II or not >.<. I'm scared a deal will come up that I won't have money for if I buy it.

I'm probably going to sleep. Feeling pretty rough so it's probably best to sleep it off.

Or you could get hammered.
...
Or better yet, maybe it is a good idea to go to sleep.

That would be the regular course of action but I only have a bottle of Apple Sourz in my house right now.
