Shingeki no Kyojin = (Shadow of the Colossus + Evangelion) / 2

Saturday, December 17th, 2011

Well played, Shinobu Kaitani, well played. Bringing Liar Game back from hiatus as soon as it got the Baka-Raptor Bump. A brilliant strategy befitting the creator of Liar Game. Or so I thought. Liar Game’s scanlating group announced it would delay the latest chapter of Liar Game in favor of some other manga I’d never […]

Evangelion 05-06: Rei vs. The Giant Cube

Saturday, July 19th, 2008

This double-episode starts off with a flashback. Booooooooooring. But this is the good kind of flashback: the kind that explains why people are dead/injured/otherwise brutalized. Awesome! Rei’s robot goes berserk. It punches the wall and ejects her. The Evangelion unit punches the observation booth where Shinji’s father is standing. Does this imply emotional tension— Let’s […]

Couldn’t they give one of those to the UN? I’m guessing it’ll never subdue an Angel. Why does— Stop! In the name of the CLAW! What? Unoriginal […]

Evangelion 02: Penguins?!

Thursday, June 5th, 2008

Pen Pen: Best Character Ever The episode begins with Shinji trying to make the robot walk. It trips after two steps. Then the Angel picks it up, crushes its left arm, and stabs it through the face. Has Shinji been defeated? The next thing we know, Shinji is lying in hospital bed. The Evangelion is […]

Evangelion 01: Shinji Sucks

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2008

This episode begins with Shinji ogling erotic photography. Then he sees a ghost! I’m liking this show already! An “Angel” appears! The UN takes it on and gets crushed. Wreckage falls dangerously close to Shinji but just far enough away to leave him unharmed. How convenient… As the Angel nears Shinji, Misato comes to the […]
