If the Rei we see in Q is number 6, the ones we see behind her in the NTP could be 3-5.

Imma just post my Eva Q info dump anyways in case anyone else also wants to look into it. I'll start with my favorite find from the movie: Professor Fuyutsuki foreshadowing Kaworu's death!

*Scene where Shinji and Fuyutsuki playing Shogi*
[1:05:19]Fuyutsuki: "You're overthinking, let your mind be still."
[1:05:20]Fuyutsuki: "You'll lose again in another 31 turns."
*31 minutes into the movie run-time later*
[1:36:00]Kaworu's head: *Splat*

Keep in mind the two were playing Shog: capturing the king of the opposite side (that's Kaworu & Gendo). Interesting is that Shogi doesn't necessarily mean "To execute" the captured pieces, but "Recruit" them. If Kaworu is indeed in Eva 13 and will be used by Gendo, Shinji lost his most valuable piece to his father.

On that note, I was wanting to watch the final cutscene before the final boss on Youtube but all the videos I found either had quiet as shit audio or their character was some degenerate glamour-slut so I decided to record and upload my own character in the cutscene with audio that isn't horrific as shit.

She deserves all the praise she gets. One of my closest friends IRL who has played WoW exclusively for over 15 years played Shadowbringers at my behest and he says the story was the best experience he's ever had with an MMO/RPG. The lore/woirld-building for XIV has a lot of potential but I was beginning to think the the writers were just shitting the bed and squandering it, then Shadowbringers comes out and blows all my expectations out of the fucking water.

Fucking KINObringers is a more appropriate name for the expansion.

because of my autism preventing me from playing games out of sequential order regardless of story + the fact that i have a hardline policy against MMOs means that i will literally never play FF14, but the reception of this expansion has me feeling some big-time FOMO right about now

someone tell me that it actually sucks or that i'd hate it or something so i feel less bad

It's mostly hitting the coast; Central FL (such as Orlando and Kissimmee) is just gonna get a shit ton of rain, but we get that during the summer anyways, it's nothing new.

But it looks like it's hitting Florida right now. Just not the eye.

Where is the eye supposed to make landfall?

God no. I was a NEET for six months after I graduated HS back in 2012, resolved never to live like that again. When I'm not working I'm always still out and about doing things. I can't remember the last time I had a day where I stayed at home (and wasn't forced to due to some illness).

Were you not a shut in before Dorian?

There's weather problems no matter where you go, but at least they don't blue ball you over there.

I'm honestly very sorry to hear that. I'm grateful that shit never happens here in California because the only natural disasters we have to worry about are occasional wildfires and earthquakes.

It's literally going to hit NOWHERE near central FL yet every store and restaurant in the area has closed shop and abandoned ship. I can't have my usual All-you-can-eat wings Monday at Hooters with my friends because they've closed up for today and tomorrow. Grocery shopping? Lol fuck you we're closed. Out with friends? Get board games and flashlights and hold up in your room preparing for losing power (even though the last two storms hit us straight on and we didn't lose power). Want to do literally anything? Fucking ghost town.

Oh and fuck the obsessed media blowing this shit out of proportion here in FL. We have the toughest building codes in the nation and the damn thing does a hard right and wants to fuck over the Carolinas so stop fear mongering here in FL.

"B-But you're going to get one of the heavy rain bands!"

Fuck you, you know what we call that? Tuesday is what we call that.

I seriously hope you’re not insinuating that Corbyn has not gone on the record praising a country that lacks basic qualities of life, because he most certainly has.

Have you got any other opinions other than a complete regurgitation of a boomer Facebook page?

I mean, the man does use Venezuela as a country of how "socialism works" yet still lacks the necessities of toilet paper, diapers, and juice boxes. Out of all the countries in the world he wants to model Venezuela....

At least these Tories are being honest about being a group of elite autocrats, but they don't really have a leg to stand on anymore when they call Corbyn a radical who wants to undermine our democracy.

Didn't May have three different plans that weren't "No-Deal" denied? You could say they were shitty plans, but if No-Deal is the shittiest of the shit surely hers weren't as bad? Are you saying there isn't anybody in the Remain camp in Parliament not just denying anything that doesn't involve staying?

Now, we have a Prime Minister elected by a vastly unrepresentative (majority old, white and middle class) 0.1% of the population getting permission from an unelected monarch to suspend democracy for an unreasonably long time so he can push no deal through despite the majority of people and parliament having already shown their rejection of the idea.

It seems that no one can decide on a deal and that your government is just continuously trying to delay Brexit until they can get a government in that will just decide to take Brexit away. At least from an outsiders perspective, it feels like Johnson is telling Parliament to quit fucking around. After reading several articles they still have a window (a very very small one I see) to get a deal passed but that remainers just want to stall cause they don't want either a deal or no-deal.

Quote
Also, the referendum isn't the fucking "will of the voters", it was never legally binding and it's already been found that the Leave campaigns broke electoral law and manipulated voters leading up to the referendum.

If they didn't have to listen to the referendum why did Cameron leave? It's dishonest to say you'll have a vote on what the country wants and after it goes through say "Well I don't technically have to follow it so up yours." It just makes the vote look like an over-glorified polling.

That was it, but if you have Netflix they have it released on there. granted I'm not a fan of Netflix's release it's the only current official release where you don't have to go to shady websites to watch.

I have both movie trilogies on DVD boxed somewhere but I don't really recommend either of them. Zeta is much worse but both cut a lot of content and will leave you confused if you don't already know the basic outline.

Yeah, that's why the second idea I dad was the two Movie Trilogies of MSG and Zeta as well as CCA and Unicorn

In the past I would tell people to watch the director's cuts of 21-24 and then watch End of Eva before 25 & 26 but I found that people were too confused by this. The DC of 21-24 are longer so I should expect people with common sense to seek those episodes if they were on a side by side choice with their On Air versions, although I don't know what versions of NGE people are watching, the show has had an extraordinarily tedious overseas release and it doesn't help the issue that both Gainax and Khara liked making their home media releases in Japan alone confusing (ie Death in Death & Rebirth has like three different versions called Death, Death (True), and Death (True)^2).

As with End Of Eva, it's ultimately the same ending as 25 & 26 told from a different lens. Originally I told people to watch End Of Eva first because the next time preview at the end of the director's cut for 24 shows storyboard scenes from the first half of End Of Eva. However as I said before about 25 & 26 and End Of Eva being the same, there's really no point in not watching it in release order and being able to put the pieces together yourself.

genuinely kind of interested in your thoughts on this

08th MS Team is pretty good considering it takes place around the same time as the original MSG but if you're going to watch the other stuff like Zeta, 0083, or Unicorn it's better to watch the original since that's where most of the integral cast are introduced. The UC is episodic with it's shows so a lot of the shows rely heavily on what was established in the previous series (ie people aren't going to get the Titans in Zeta if they didn't watch 0083).

Hey Ian, How's 'War in the Pocket' or '8th MS Team' as a starting point?

1. Epsiodes 1-26
2. End of Eva
3. 1.0, 2.0, 3.0

There's like a million Evangelions though. Where do I start?

I'm sure he has more important things to do than post reviews of anime he rates poorly but I really would like to see Verb's full opinion on 3.0/Q seeing how it's not only one of my favorite anime movies but also one of my favorite movies in general.

Plus I gotta plenty of info-bombs I can dump in regards to 3.0.

Some things to note:

- As I said earlier, the Next Time Previews are important. here's 2.0's NTP again just for good measure.

YouTube


- Anno has stated that this is an Evangelion series for another generation/more watered down but telling the same story.
- I agree with the pacing issues of 2.0, it was pretty insanely fast, luckily though 3.0 is sloooooooooooowwwwwwwwww.
- The SoL bits in 2.0 are supposed to be reminiscent of episodes like Magma Diver & Dance Like You Want To Win.

Eh, I don't think that's a fair comparison. The NTP at the end of 2.0 has some pretty clear clues for what we see in actual 3.0. Furthermore, Anno states in the booklet for 3.33 that what we see was the plan all along. A lot of care was put into these movies, they don't leave room for oversight like that. At the very least we should wait for the 3.0 CRC before making any definite conclusions.

Remember to pay attention to the next time previews after the credits, they're actually very important.
