Ten things you might have missed in The End of Evangelion

Thursday, November 24th, 2016

I don’t need to tell you that The End of Evangelion is a film brimming with detail. You can watch it numerous times and still find things you didn’t notice before. There are literally parts of the movie where you have to go frame by frame to catch certain details. On top of that, the […]

Evangelion & One Hour Photo

Thursday, November 10th, 2016

As an Evangelion fan, one of the things that I really enjoy is finding connections and threads between Evangelion and other works.  Not just in terms of works that influenced Evangelion, or that Evangelion specifically referenced, but also works that have subsequently been influenced by Evangelion and have made specific references to Evangelion.  It’s fun to […]

Thursday, July 31st, 2014

Linkara of Atop the Fourth Wall recently performed a live show at Anime Midwest 2014 where he covered the Shinji Ikari Detective Diary.  If you’re unfamiliar with Atop the Fourth Wall, it’s a web show that covers and riffs on comics that are awful in various ways. Now, I haven’t been terribly supportive of Detective […]

Evangelion University, Live Action Webseries Pilot

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

Brendan Steere, a filmmaker in New York, recently released a short pilot for a live action Evangelion webseries called Evangelion University.  The show strips the Evas, Angels, and general sci-fi elements out, and re-imagines it as a 90s-era college dramedy.  If someone were to pitch you that concept, you would probably be pessimistic like I […]
