As promised here is some new artwork that will be added to the gallery soon. This time it is Asuka from the new Evangelion movies.
What I like the most about Evangelion is probably Asuka both in the original series and the new remakes. Though most people will not like my opinion, I feel I like the new Asuka more. The reason being that the original Asuka didn’t really seem to have much of a future anymore. And that seemed rather sad to me. Sure it probably makes the story more interesting but I seriously prefer characters that see a light after all the struggles, which is what I think this new remake has and the other one didn’t. Regardless, both were great. The thing I hated the most about the original Asuka is that she was too much in “love” with Kaji, which I never really understood. Why so much fixation. Though the same can be said about Shinji. Although I’m usually ok with weak characters, Shinji just rubbed me the wrong way, I really don’t like him. In either the original or the remakes. This is probably one of the reasons why I wouldn’t put Evangelion among my favorite animes, The protagonist was just not very likeable to me. And that is a big point against a series. But Asuka despite her many flaws made the story very interesting, and in the new movies very likeable.
What do you guys think?
By now most Mexican people know that a very important person has died. Someone who touched the lives of so many people not just in Latin America but around the world. Chespirito. He was a man that Mexicans grew up watching as kids, even to this day despite his shows ending years ago. He brought us the great characters El Chavo del Ocho (who I believe to be his greatest creation), El Chapulin Colorado (one of the the few if not the only superhero that Mexico has made) among many others. His comedy was clean and for everyone. I remember scenes in El Chavo where things would have been tarnished by some stupid perverted joke nowadays but it never went there with him. And that I believe is what created such a powerful bond between his characters and the audience.
It’s sad how one loses things and people over the course of one’s life. It’s a hard process to stomach. It really is. What’s even more sad is that I don’t really know if this will be easier to withstand as the years go by. Though it will be easier to feel numb under such feelings, I also don’t want to become robotic to life around me. Only time will tell I guess.
