EVA Pilots and Fan Perceptions of their Characters

So, let’s get one thing straight: the characters of Evangelion aren’t designed  to be your perfect, lovable fan-fodder. They weren’t conceptualized to rake in the dough, even if, as circumstance has it, they did eventually become that.

No, the Eva characters all are very human I think. They all have their issues (and all share a root issue) alongside their positives.

Analyses of some problematic and positive traits of characters, as well as how certain spheres of the fandom view and filter said pros and cons under the cut.

Pearlmethyst and Connverse: Movie Date

“Come on guys! I know you’ll like the movie!”

“Steven, do we really have to? I don’t like attending these human screenings. They either have the sound up too loud or too soft, and I can never find the right seat. I don’t understand where you’re actually supposed to sit during one of these things.”

“We do get snacks, right?”

If you watch the film The Martian, you’ll see Hollywood explosions and special effects galore, but you’ll also see some serious science.

“The Martian has almost all of its technical details correct,” says Robert Zubrin, the head of The Mars Society, which advocates sending people to explore the planet. Zubrin, who has written nonfiction and fiction books about going to Mars, points out there have been many other accurate books written about missions to Mars. What makes The Martian special he says, is its simple man-versus-nature plot. “It’s about one person, one human mind, one human heart,” he says.

Valhalla Movie Promises

If I cannot absolutely ensure every one of these things, I will not allow a Valhalla movie to be made.

  • It will have a death metal soundtrack, or no soundtrack at all.
  • None of the leads will be played by famous actors. Barring a couple minor roles written with actors in mind, no name actors will be allowed in the film at all.
  • Projectile guns will not click for no reason when handled. Blades will not go shhhhhink for no reason.
  • It will be filmed in immersive 3D (not shallow 3D like modern movies) at no less than 8K resolution and 72fps per eye.
  • There will be no conventional makeup nor digital polishing of actors. Skin will look like skin for the first time in movie history, translucent and imperfect. Perhaps even grotesque.
  • It will not be rated or endorsed in any way by the MPAA. As the incredibly gruesome violence and undiluted sexuality would demand an NC-17 rating, I see no reason to let those scumbags rate it at all. Hollywood unions and organizations, locations and the like are similarly not invited.
  • I will not whitewash a single character. The books have more than enough white people in them already. I will not rob the supporting cast of what diversity I could fit in. Every character will be played by an accurate actor, be they Scottish or Tibetan or German or African American or Japanese.
  • Fights will look like fights, not choreographed dances with unnecessary fencing moves. 
  • Every volumetric visual effect will incorporate live elements. No CGI smoke or dust will be allowed unless there are drastic changes in available technology that can finally render photoreal imagery for such subjects.
  • Zero-G sequences will be filmed in Zero-G, not on wires. If the Vomit Comet is unavailable, we’ll shoot the damn thing in space.
  • There will be no sound in space. There will be no visible lasers. Spacecraft will not bank in space, nor will vessels designed for interplanetary travel only be streamlined. And space is 3D, not a plane.
  • There will be no Austin-Powers-ing of nudity, nor avoidance of male nudity. You will see Varg’s penis exactly where the book suggests you will.
  • Nothing will explode unnaturally. Though there will be explosions galore, pogos won’t just blow up when they crash or bump into each other.
  • Wounds will not heal instantly into visually appealing Tom-Cruise-style battle scabs. Wounds will be ugly, and people will bleed naturally. Their blood will be opaque unlike common movie blood. It will turn brown when dry, and wounds will swell.
  • There will be no Wilhelm screams.

Do you have any tropes you’re sick of? Any hopes about the movies? Any things above you don’t want to see? Let me know and they will be addressed.
