    Evangelion

    I think it was just a poor quality transfer. Plus no HD and shitty aspect ratio w/ annoying black bars around the edges (here's a good example - to Ody's point about the bootleg looking nicer). I watched it around the time I bought a Wii and remember thinking it looked rough so... in 720p...

    Evangelion

    Good news! The Blu-ray also comes with all 26 episodes so it's consistently dubbed... with Netflix! :desu: I might be wrong, but I think that Manga edition was the only EoE DVD ever released in North America. And the video quality could suck a peach pit through a coffee straw. I did find it new...

    Evangelion

    It's a shame if the dub is a sticking point because Blu-ray preorders are $37.99 at Amazon right now. Search your feelings, you know you'll watch the subs anyway. And if we're talking EoE screams then Ogata >>>> Mongillo > Spencer imvho.

    Evangelion

    I guess whether she was offering sex to Shinji in episode 23 is sort of the "did Cloud and Tifa have sex under the Highwind" of Evangelion. The fandom is still pretty divided over it. To me it's obvious, especially given the way he responds, and also the way she screams about hating herself...

    I think you just like the word jobber. Ok, she's gonna job so hard Genos will blush!

    Evangelion

    With all of the romantic subtext between them, both in that scene and in general, there's more to it than just talk. Even the kiss itself is a visual callback. And again, why dismiss Asuka and insert herself? The only two things that ever motivated Shinji to get in the Eva are 1) Gendo's praise...

    Fair enough, "prime" is getting carried away. I don't think she's on par with All Might prior to his first AFO fight. Having said that, she studied under All Might, AFO thinks she's the "greatest obstacle" to his plans, and stealing her quirk basically means he's won the war (or so he thinks)...

    My Hero Academia [WSJ]

    I mean, it's a pretty thinly veiled allusion to how prime All Might vs AFO would play out now. AFO would absolutely beat the Plus Ultra out of him and take his lunch money. It's just another reason the Symbol of Peace / go-it-alone approach isn't viable going forward (probably another real world...

    Sometimes while enjoying Japanese media, I get the faint impression they're slipping a bit of subtext into their cultural relationship with the US

    Gainax lost the original negatives for episode 16. It looks like ass on the Platinum and Netflix versions too. The Archives of Evangelion have the original broadcast version (comparison), biggest difference seems to be the shadow details (like Asuka's infamous glowing eyes/mouth scene).

    SPOILERS LTD Remake — It's like New Coke except ... no, it's exactly like New Coke

    This. Characters who are boyfriend/girlfriend but haven't had sex still say koibito to describe each other. Golden Time is a good example. (And they say koibito a LOT. Accursed subs, I can't unhear that word anymore!)

    SPOILERS LTD Remake — It's like New Coke except ... no, it's exactly like New Coke

    I mean, if I were asked to summarize Cloud and Aerith's relationship in a single line, I'd probably come up with something like the commercial did. It's not rocket science. Fans willfully misinterpreting the statement and/or the story itself doesn't mean more clarity is needed. Likewise when...
