    Tenbits, I would definitally call them Angels. Anno did a good deal of research, and originally Angels were in fact messangers from god. So calling them messangers isn't to far of a stretch. Gainax insisted on Angels for the American release, I'm thinking that was Anno. Then again, they also insisted that "The First Child" be called "The First Children" and so forth...

    I always added a few words to the titles translation, making it The Gospel of the New Century. Sounds really snazy that way I think. Also, shouldn't there be some changing of word ordering from one language to another?

    Technically speaking, there WAS one robot in the show.

    -P!-

    I would have loved to see how that robot actually fared against the Angels.
    The only reason it didnt work was because of sabotage.

    But... it seems there was no room for actual robots in SEELE's plan. :p

    Well, yeah...but JA was stupid. Even its name was stupid.

    Yeah, I always made the title like this:

    Japanese: (Like Trell) Gospel of the New Century.
    Western Title: New Beginning to the Gospel or Gospel of the New Beginning.

    Western Title: New Beginning to the Gospel or Gospel of the New Beginning.

    My god, I just got a migraine in three seconds flat.

    Edit: After the pain left a bit, I realized that was two names... Oops.

    I would always say "The Gospel of the Bright New Beginning" or such.

    Really though, Jet Alone simply would have sucked, and been destroyed in its first engagement. No AT Field. That sabotage probably saved lives and money in the end.

    -P!-

    Neon = new

    Genesis = beginning/origin

    Evangelion = gospel

    There's no bright inolved unless you're confusing the greek word neon with the gas of the same name or suggesting a Mobile Suit Gundam crossover. :p

    edit- damn mark-ups again

    Mobile Suit Gundam/ Eva Crossover title translations...



    Gospel of the Bright Pink Explosion Beginning [insert random capital letter we'll give meaning to later]

    An Eva/Gundam 0079 crossover would be worth it just for the instantanious pleasure of seeing Bright Noa pimp-slap Asuka.

    offtopic:

    For those gathering Platinums...Platinum 4 is out 12-28, and Platinum 5 will be out 2-8-2005. So, I'd imagine Platinum 6 will be out mid March.

    Anybody know if ADV plans to release a super cool box set I will be kicking myself in the ass over? :p

    They already released the Box for the box set with copies of 0:1 inside. You can also buy 0:1 without the box, but I think it's the same price

    With ADV you never know. They say one thing one day then come out with something anyway. They just want your money. The platinum editions themselves came out pretty much on the fly right after they released the director's cut DVDs.

    I wish we could have gotten the obelisk collector's box set with plastic LCL casing like they did in Japan. :_|

    That is the most hella fine box set on the face of the planet [face_love]

    What about Rei *****-slapping Amuro?

    I would rank that an easy close second. Asuka getting slapped always gets priority. :p

    Now if only I had money, a DVD player capable of playing Japanese DVDs, and the ability to understand Japanese...


    There, fixed it for you. ;)

    Since when is a DVD player not able to understand Japanese DVD's?

    Different format or something?

    Ok, so I was kinda right.

    Now that I think about it, I have heard about that being done before.
