      Netflix's Neon Genesis Evangelion

      As you may have heard, Netflix managed to secure the worldwide rights to the original Neon Genesis Evangelion - but not Funimation's English Translation of it.

      In it, Rei is referred to as "the First Children" instead of "First Child."

      Which viewers who've watched the series know is probably completely accurate description.

      Shinji and Asuka are the "Second Children" and "Third Children"

      Text remains largely untranslated.

      And the end song is not "Fly me to the Moon" - issues over licencing rights. It's one of the interim music.

      I've just watched the first episode, still the same animation, just new voices reading a slightly different script.

      I think the translation is Netflix' least problem as far as anime is concerned. But it still is a problem.

      If you want to know more about me:

      I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it. (Evelyn Beatrice Hall)
      Information wants to be free. (Stewart Brand)
      The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum—even encourage the more critical and dissident views. That gives people the sense that there's free thinking going on, while all the time the presuppositions of the system are being reinforced by the limits put on the range of the debate. (Noam Chomsky)
      (about neoliberalism) Instead of citizens, it produces consumers. Instead of communities, it produces shopping malls. The net result is an atomized society of disengaged individuals who feel demoralized and socially powerless. (Robert W. McChesney)
      Liberty without socialism is privilege and injustice, socialism without liberty is slavery and brutality. (Mikhail Bakunin)
      Man, your head is haunted; you have wheels in your head! You imagine great things, and depict to yourself a whole world of gods that has an existence for you, a spirit-realm to which you suppose yourself to be called, an ideal that beckons to you. You have a fixed idea! Do not think that I am jesting or speaking figuratively when I regard those persons who cling to the Higher, and (because the vast majority belongs under this head) almost the whole world of men, as veritable fools, fools in a madhouse. (Max Stirner)
      No one else can help you discover what you really want and what you really need. You can only discover it yourself. No one else can convince you. You can only convince yourself. No one else can liberate you. You can only liberate yourself. (Who Cares)
      6.373 The world is independent of my will. (Ludwig Wittgenstein)
      Principle of tolerance: we are not in the business of setting up prohibitions but of arriving at conventions (…) In logic there are no morals. Everyone is welcome to set up their logic, i.e., their form of language, as they please. If they want to discuss it with us, though, they need to (…) give syntactical specifications rather than philosophical debates. (Rudolf Carnap, slightly modified)

      from what i've heard they cut out kaworu's flirting with shinji

      that kinda kills a whole slew of motivating factors and interests for shinji since he'd never had someone interested in him and always felt cast out
