Neon Genesis Evangelion

  1. The Star Wars Expanded Universe is Dead, Long Live the Star Wars Expanded Universe

    I will make it legal!

    So Disney has decided that they're going to nuke most of the previously established Star Wars canon. I think this is as good a reason as any to finally bury the destructive concept of canon in fictional works. Note that this does not mean that I am against stories in continuity with each other, that's not my position at all. I love continuity, and the story options that it enables. But even as I enjoy continuity, I don't see why we should be judging stories as more or less significant than another on any basis but their merits. And that's all canon does, it arbitrarily privileges some continuities over others. Why should we recognize that kind of a distinction? Why should we give a soulless corporate entity that kind of power over our culture? Because that's what we're really talking about here.

  2. Licensed NES Games From the ’90s That We’re Surprised Don’t Really Exist

    My childhood weeps for a Daria game now.

    Back in the glory days of the NES and SNES, there were about a spillion officially licensed video games that did not need to exist. Seriously, does anyone remember the tie-in game for Home Improvement where you fought dinosaurs as Tim Allen? Thank god VGJunk put together some imagined title screens for franchises that would have made much better games.

    Suddenly

    Okay, so, don't freak out, but it seems that Hayao Miyazaki just gave Hideaki Anno permission to go ahead and make that Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind sequel he's been bugging him about for years.

  4. Things We Saw Today: Tiny Chocolate Benedict Cumberbatch’s Backside

    Things We Saw Today

    Rebecca told me it was okay to make that the title of this post, so blame her. This was apparently left in the hotel room of Simon Pegg by the hotel's services, and yes, it is entirely chocolate. (That's Nerdalicious!)

  5. Is Victoria’s Secret That She’s Into Anime?

    Come on, Vicky, you can tell us! Neon Genesis Evangelion is really a great show, and probably about as mainstream as anime gets, outside of 4Kids Animation. I mean, it's not like you're watching Mononoke (that's, Mononoke, not Princess Mononoke) or making elaborate Axis Powers Hetalia costumes. Because seriously, I guess there's a bra on Jourdan Dunn here, but mostly you've dressed her up in a Rei Ayanami cosplay. I mean, just look:

  6. The 10 Worst Schools in Geekdom

    Power Grid

    Many people out there have headed back to school this week, whether they are students, teachers, or loving parents. And if not this week, then they've probably been at it long enough to already long for the blissful freedom of summer vacation. And so, as the fortunate or unfortunate majority who no longer return to those hallowed halls yearly, and instead must assign our own homework, we'd like to highlight some schools where it doesn't seem like any learning goes on at all, or where half the student body is dead by the end of the first semester.

  7. Japan May Soon Get a Totally Sweet Neon Genesis Evangelion Android Phone

Now, in conjunction with Sharp, NTT, and DoCoMo comes a modified Android phone called the SH-06D NERV in conjunction with the upcoming Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo. And surprisingly, it looks pretty awesome.

  10. The 10 Most Spectacular Ways the World as We Know It Could End

    Power Grid

    Did you know that last week there was an earthquake? Yeah, it was no big deal. Did you know there was a hurricane this weekend? That was a bit more annoying, to say the least. But let us not forget: hurricanes? Earthquakes? Floods and fires? Mundane. Zombies? Alien invasions? Played-out. Draconid Aspects of death? YAWN. If we're going to go out, let's go out with a bang.
