Why was Asuka playing on a Sega Saturn in 2015?
a term to describe a moment when somethin that was once great has reached a point where it will now decline in quality
The precise moment when you know a program, band, actor, politician, or other public figure has taken a turn for the worse, gone downhill, become irreversibly bad, is unredeemable, etc.; the moment you realize decay has set in.
The beginning of the end. Something is said to have "jumped the shark" when it has reached its peak and begun a downhill slide to mediocrity or oblivion. It's said to have been coined by Jon Hein, who has a web site, jumptheshark.com, and now a book detailing examples, especially as applied to TV shows. It supposedly refers to an episode of the TV show "Happy Days" in which Fonzie jumps over a shark on water skis, which Hein believes was the point at which the series had lost its touch and was beginning to grasp at straws.
I thought that jumping the shark meant when something or someone does something they should not have done or did something too soon. I was wondering how that pertained to the sphere angel.
are you kidding me. the final eps they ran out of budget so half the time they resorted to voiceovers over still images or awkward angles to reduce to cut back on the need to animate
I still play the Sega Saturn in 2017...
>When did Evangelion jump the shark?
A first run series can't jump the shark, especially one that's under 50 episodes. What you're asking is "what episode did Evangelion peak at?"
But shinji uses a pretty fucking expensive Digital tape walkman, its implied that Gendo left it to him since disk based portable players and better and cheaper walkmans already existed when the show was being made
If live gives you lemons, you make lemonade
And its pretty much what Anno did, 24-25 are great and really show how mindfucked shinji was by the end of the series and its even more impressive when you learn that they had no fucking budget for those episodes, having Anno animate and edit most of it and Yoshinari doing a really well made and animated scene for free just to drive a point
To attempt a serious answer. Probably because most resources were being pooled to deal with the damage from Second Impact. Infrastructure, food, medical supplies, etc. Technological development had a higher priority than video games. Hell, maybe there aren't video games being made anymore and that's an old Saturn from before Second Impact.
>evangelion characters are half my age
Just 3d impact my shit up, senpai.
I think he meant "Drop the shark", a term that was coined during the airing of Samurai Jack S5 ep8 that marks the moment a show going downhill passed the point of no return and can never go back.
Evangelion was made in 95/96
Also, Sega helped fund Evangelion, so the Saturn was put in because that was the current Sega console at the time.
If they went back and digitally replaced the Saturn with a Dreamcast, that's be like George Lucas levels of putting neon rims on a Mona Lisa.
>shinji has a sentimental attraction to his dad's old walkman that was passed down to him because gendo is too cheap to buy an MP3 player
>Asuka is just way into /vr/ because current games are so easy to the point where she plays a Saturn for a challenge.
You got it wrong, the shark jumped the Evangelion
