    PewDiePie takes a semi-serious look at Starship Troopers, and how it was misunderstood as a parody of America.

    Finally got around to watching Neon Genesis Evangelion... an anime from the late 90's by Gainax. Very highly rated... huge impact on Japanese culture and anime as a whole. Big influence on the industry, as well as many anime that followed it.

    ...

    It's a weird one. They ran out of money on the last two episodes, so it was mostly re-hashed content and still frames... then they remade them a year later how they wanted... then they made a couple movies that re-did the endings... All super complex. It's full of philosophical topics... including odd things like the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Lance of Longinus... and also full of birthing allegories... and vaginas. So many vaginas. Also psychosexual development, religious iconography, eschatology, mysticism...

    Even the name translates to "A new telling of the Gospel: Genesis"... a re-imagining with lots of technology.

    ‎Schopenhauer's "Hedgehog's Dilemma" is the guiding theme. A depressing show filled with depressed, lonely people.

    Got a lot of Eros and Thanatos in there... lot of Freud.

    There seem to be two groups of people. Those that hated it, and those that love it. I... enjoyed the ride. The creator was massively depressed, and said he put a lot of himself into it... It felt more like they were trying really hard to make it complex and hard to follow.

    "What the **** did I just watch" is a common feeling, apparently.


    For a purely philosophical and religious analysis of the show, this video covers it very well... though it spoils everything.

    Personally, I couldn't recommend it to someone unless they... A: Were aware of it already but never watched it (like me)... or B: Get a hard-on for philosophical and deep religious allegories.

    It wasnít that they just ran out of money, the writer/lead guy went into an asylum due to a nervous breakdown. He talked about it in an interview on one of the DVDs.

    I still havenít seen the two Eva movies. I originally saw Eva on VHS back in the 90s. I have it on DVD.

    Have you checked out Serial Experiments Lain? It is also a bit weird, but good.

    Yeah he's an interesting guy... and it definitely shows in NGE.

    The only movie you need to watch is "End of Evangelion"... it's a new episode 25 and 26, very full of content. If the other one you're talking about is "Death and Rebirth", I read that one can be skipped. Then there's the rebuild movies... (2007 modernization of entire series...)

    I have heard of Lain... have not seen it though, might have to add it to the list.

    Gotta admit, it was really weird seeing 8chan being discussed on CNN.

    Yeah. The reaction - both among the mainstream and within the Xchan world - will be interesting, too.
