Welcome to part two of my little exploration of Neon Genesis Evangelion. Last time I didn’t mention or even cover any of the assorted religious symbolism and there is a massive reason for that. They don’t feel like much besides window dressings. All those crosses that appear when angels die and the talk of dead … More (Anno August) Neon Genesis Evangelion: Part 2 – Breaking Under Pressure
If you have ever watched something from Hideaki Anno’s or Studio Gainax’s discography, then you know how much of a passion they have for science fiction, art, anime, animation, or whatever they can get their nerdy eyes to watch. That’s the reason why that studio existed, as you can tell from the Daicon opening animation. … More (Anno August) Studio Gainax: Of Love and References
Once again, I’m superficially adding something into this Anno August blog event just to have an excuse to talk about it. I haven’t talked about anything Macross on here yet. What kind of sin is that? Seriously. I’m technically not breaking any of my own rules that I’ve set for myself with this post because … More (Anno August) Macross Plus: Movie Edition – Top Gun With Rogue A.I.
So before I start digging even further into this post, I would like to give a massive thank you to Ospreyshire for bringing this weird little thing to my attention. I’ve been wanting to watch this for a while, but I wasn’t sure there was any legal avenues for me to do that until he … More (Anno August) Otaku no Video: Gainax The Mocumentary
Jumping from Nausicaa, we skip three years into the vast future of 1987.

That’s what this … More (Anno August) Royal Space Force: The Wings of Honneamise – Hard Space Facts
Holy crap, nothing I posted this week was supposed to be connected in anyway at first. Here I have two posts for two events in one week. Not only that, but they are thematically resonant as well. What is that theme you may ask? Passion. To be honest, I think this is the best way … More (Anno August) Daicon III and IV Opening Animations – Pure Fandom Spirit
Hi Everyone, just wanted to make a little announcement. Yes, it’s an early announcement, but I am writing this for myself as much as I am writing to let you know about it. I’m going for that “hold myself too doing this” sort of announcement so I know that I am going to do this … More Hideaki Anno August Announcement
I don’t know if I ever said it on this blog, but I love giant monster movies. I’m still a beginning giant monster film fan compared to so many other giant monster enthusiasts, but I have seen every Godzilla and Gamera film along with some other various monster films. As of right now, the original … More Shin Godzilla or as I like to call it, Neon Genesis Godzilla
