What was the purpose of making Asuka and the others remain kids in 3.0?
It would have been so much better to see how different the characters were as adults. If you wanted to go the full /ss/ route they could have made Shinji remain a kid while the others grew up.
Ultimately I think making the eva children adults would be a good way to force some legitimacy on them. In 3.0, it's strange how Asuka and Mari have been at it for 14 years yet act pretty much exactly the same. Making them adults would force the producers to change their personalities in a meaningful way.
Eva 3.0 was an overall steaming pile of shit full of retarded trash.
the only redeeming quality of the entire movie were the last few shots combined with the fact that it was finally ending
It's in the same post...
17 years old Asuka, like god dictate!
3.0 was the only movie I have ever walked out on.
The reason was to sell more bodypillows
otaku dont buy bodypillows of 28 year old women
Which sucks, because I would have LOVED to see a 28 year old battle weary veteran Asuka. With like big camo/tactical pants and a tube-top.
Anno can even make Miyazaki to embrace his inner otaku
So they can merchandise/pander with them. Misato age characters can't sell shit, unfortunately. The whole "grow up, Shinji" message makes zero sense when Asuka and Mari are just as retarded as they were as teenagers. The film is trying to be adventurous while also staying too safe and fucked itself over.
I was expecting an abridged Eva with a new ending and better animation. I got TTGL with Eva characters.
I always figured it was meant as a commentary the fandom and their obsessions with and expectations of Evangelion. The rest of the world growing and changing, but these characters not able to, sort of thing.
Isn't it because they were corrupted into not being human in 2.0, and therefore they couldn't age anyway?
I know that Kaworu and Rei wouldn't be able to age up no matter what. They are forever shota and loli.
Which is odd, because 3.0 is arguably the least cash-grabby of the Rebuild movies. 1.0 and 2.0 are for the most part the same old Evangelion, just with a few details tweaked here and there and looking shinier. In other words, just the sort of thing lots of existing fans of the series will snap up because it's the familiar thing they like improved, but not changed enough to become unfamiliar.
3.0 takes things in a whole other direction, turning everything we knew about Evangelion on its head. And Anno has to be aware that a very common fan reaction to anything being different is "they changed it, so now it sucks". And he did it anyway, which suggests to me that he's making it because it's genuinely a film he wants to make, and not just pandering to get more money from the franchise.
Yeah, in Canada. I watched the first 2 online and was super hyped. I pre-ordered tickets.
This post was my reaction >>138811594
There were a lot of normies in the theater and there was this one girl talking shit about Bebop say Fire Fly was better.
I was annoyed by the new girl in the pink suit but not enough to be nearly as mad as I was when I saw the future world with the TTGL like characters. I just threw my pop corn a the screen and screamed fuck and left the movie theater. I waited months hyped as hell to get this shit.
It feels like they took out the d33p4u out of it and made it just made it generic mecha with girls so idiots could get into it.
>LCL stops the body from ageing
I'd like a source on that.
If it's such a fucking wonderdrug why don't the rest of the hang use it?
>It feels like they took out the d33p4u out of it and made it just made it generic mecha with girls so idiots could get into it.
It only feels like that because you didn't finish the movie. It seemed way more 3deep5u than ever to me.
It's not the LCL, that's just theorising. All we have to go on is characters talking about "the curse of the Eva" halting the pilots' ages. That suggests something to do with piloting them, but not the LCL, since you can do things with that that don't involve piloting the Evas.
Naw I watched it online awhile after thinking that I over reacted (which I did). I didn't like it but it isnt horrible either. If people like it I cant blame them but thats how I feel about most things.
Well, fair enough if you didn't like it. And don't get me wrong, I think the movie has flaws, I just don't think it's the Phantom Menace-level shitshow people make it out to be. I also don't really see how it can seem like a generic mecha; if I saw any other mecha show do what 3.0 did, I'd accuse it of blatantly ripping off Eva.
Same exact reaction from me from the op
It's following the same "Shinji is isolated from people for reasons and meets Kaworu, who dies due to shenanigans which will lead to the finale, he's also traumatized by Rei clones along the way." Except Asuka's development and role is drastically diminished to fodder fighter. It's like exactly the same formula but in a tweaked setting with worse characters.
And let's not pretend the movie wasn't chock full of fujoshi pandering and marketed with it. Even the waifus are still super appealing to otaku, look at all the art and doujin Asuka generated. The females basically revolve around Shinji since the start of Rebuild till now and 3.33 doesn't change that. When we see Asuka and Mari briefly, it's only Shinji they speak of to bait shippers. Same for other females. We don't get anything else but muh Shinji feelings.
Khara knows what appeals to younger generations and are doing it. Nothing inherently wrong with it, but let's not pretend any of the rebuilds are high art 2deep.
wait so there's actually a place as bad as the setting of Shimoneta when it comes to making lewds?
>being in the mecha is a metaphor for being in the womb
>wonder why pilots don't age
Even a high school English student can figure this shit out, you fucking retards.
but Anon, this is what happened after EOE. Didnt one of the artists that worked on NGE and EOE made that picture?
I belive they ended up on a very positive and promising note.
Metal owl and Erodoll are different people. Erodoll pointed to Metal owl as his influence back before the SK crackdown.
Occasionally Erodoll will chat with Metal on the rare streams he hosts on picarto.
Porn was already bad in SK, what happened was one of the known artists in his community got arrested for it. Erodoll balled his name and account, but he cannot hide his style under a new name, so he is easy to find.
I was in a picarto chat with erodoll a few weeks back before he dropped the name. Honestly all we lose is hairy and messy lewds from him. The situation is still sad thought, some SK artists are finding new ways to express Unity Threw Dick, and some of them stream on picarto live, which being a western site and live seems ok.
I feel you OP, 28 year old Asuka is just begging for some /ss/
Miyazaki kinda looks like Lorne Malvo at the bottom there.
There's no proof at all for that besides that unanncy photo. It's implied that piloting the evas makes you stay young, which she wouldn't have been doing until Shiji's time.
Ritsuko says the pilots will lose their humanity if they go too deep into an Eva's core. Asuka, Mari and Shinji all get sucked into their Eva's cores in the final acts of 2.0. Mari and Asuka don't age anymore and Asuka doesn't consider herself human.
>We will never see Asuka, Rei and Mari hanging out on a military base after the fall of NERV.
I love Rei, but Misato is the best woman, a perfect cake.
I think all Eva girls are wonderful in their own ways.
Rei is a quiet but good person and not creepy at all.
Misato is caring with some tough problems but she really cares about her family and everyone.
Shikinami is a good girl behind that tough exterior.
I didn't like Sohryu too much after finishing the series. I even think I hated how mean she was to everyone. But after awhile I changed my opinion. She's just a scared girl who doesn't want to be alone in the world and latches on while at the same time pushing them away because she's not good with her feelings.
>In the 14 years Asuka has let herself go and bulges out of the suit
>It's not like I got big for you..or anything.
>I didn't even know you liked me like this.
>you really do? I can't believe you like my disgusting body like this.
>Lay down, I'm gonna have to smother you for embarrassing me. You idiot!
Because they remained kids in heart and brain.
Asuka and Mari did nothing but fight in the EVA and stayed shut in.
Humanity is almost completely extinct. They had little to no interaction with anyone else.
Growing older does not make you mature automatically.
There are 15 year old's that are far better adults than other losers at 25.
End my life for me family.
I too like high test women. Slender chicks are absolutely disgusting. I bet they aren't even obese.
>Shikinami and Mari get into a wrestling match
>Shikinami and Mari teasing each other and getting lewd with lots of sweating and heavy breathing.
>Rei being a sweetie and going along with it, making love with both of them.
>Triple simultaneous climax.
>relaxing afterward in bed and snuggling.
Those EVA transport craft looks gorgeous, too bad there's no concept art on them.
Some sources say that flying was called Eva Long-Distance Transportation Craft, other sources says it's L'XB-49 but they're shady. All I want is concept art of this Eva dropship.
>Mari gets Rei to open up more by interacting with her.
>Mari and Asuka have friendly matches while Rei cheers for them.
>Rei wants them to get together and be happy.
>She thinks that they would be better off without her and she would get in the way.
>Mari tells her that she loves her and Asuka both.
>Asuka says the same, but not easily.
>Three way marriage, with Misato as the best girl.
>Mari walking with Asuka and Rei to the honeymoon suite.
>Mari gets tipsy and starts fondling Asuka, her new wife.
>Rei joins in, the three lovers getting into it and having a wonderful time.
>They make love again and again. Telling the other that they love them deeply.
>They make love until the sun rises until finally collapsing in exhaustion.
>They all snuggle together and sleep for awhile.
>The three new brides are happy as can be.
That's the cutest shit I've ever read.
Keep it up. There's not a whole lot of new written Eva lewd out there these days.
i knew they were all pilots, but my brain just didn't piece together that it was only supposed to be pilots in that picture
damn this series really is 2deep...
The Rebuilds are shit, that's why. Despite people claiming that 3.0 was the best because it was the one that departed and did something new, it was basically the same shit with a new coat of paint. All the characters pretty much look the same with new outfits, the movie is pretty much an extended episode 24, and felt like a ploy to push more merch for these same exact characters. It was basically just a way to make a quick buck off of retards who eat up anything Anno shit out.
I actually have a backup of Lemontastica's archive from back in the day, plus the last chapter of Home/Bodies that never got 'officially' posted.
I actually can't find the Lemontastica archive on my hd at the moment but if you want I can upload the H/B chapter and the Shinji/Hikari/Asuka + Asuka/Touji eventual foursome story by the same author that never ended up on Lemontastica either.
