  1. I just realised something about Evangelion, that Kaworu's one line ("In other words, I love you") actually links back to the end credits theme (Fly Me To The Moon). This is slightly changed in the Netflix version, that it no longer links back to the song. While the Netflix translation and re-dubbing may be more "accurate," it loses that thematic importance. I think it's a lesson in translating too literally.

    and yes i know, netflix doesn't have that credits theme. but the song is still intact in japan's netflix, so it's still a valid take.

      also because Kaworu is fucking gay

      we know that, and his whole character and that one scene is important to shinji's character arc

      i don't like that the new translation, although more literal to the original script, lowers the impact of the line to the story by losing the meaning, among other issues

      it's the difference between carrying the meaning of the original and using google translate

      The people who are against the original line also sometimes argue against Kaworu being gay and I don't get that. Like... whether the writers intended him to be that or not, the fact of the matter is that fans have interpreted him as gay for years and it's only now that that's being contested. It's similar to the backlash Sakamoto got for writing Samus as a passive weak waifu which iirc was an attempt to "correct" people's perception of Samus as a hardened badass who don't need no man. Artist intent isn't everything.
