And well PGV2, I did comment on what you previously said with "Well, to each his own" when you displayed your view point on the story. The comments before the one you did today. So I don't know where to go from there. You voiced yourself loud and clear, and um, have a good day?
Well, that doesn;t mean I can;t continue voicing my opinion.
Yeah, here's the difference between Evangelion and this thing here, the bio suit only takes a mind of its own when its host is no longer capable of consciously fighting and no longer receives orders from the Ultra genes within his hosts body that are given out through brain waves. It does this to preserve itself and protectively guard its host. Beyond that, this Ultraman doesn't eat or devour any parts of its opponents whenever its damaged. So, yeah.
So, slight, inconsequential differences?
In any case, the Eva unit lives and breathes all the time, but only actively appears alive in berserk mode, so its essentially the same thing. And not eating his foes doesn;t change the fact ti sounds an awful lot like an Evangelion-wannabe. It doesn't need to be a 100% carbon copy to give that impression.
At least give this thing a chance before completely writing it off as an abomination within your book. Ultraman still exists within this new series, the same alien and man in suit appearance and all of its glory. But this new Ultraman is simply for Shin's involvement within the universe, he's not replacing what's already been established but he's carrying it onward through his own story. GINO in the least did not do this since it was trying to rewrite the entire history of Gojira itself. (which of course is obvious since it was somewhat of a remark).
I don't see any problem with what GINO did. Obviously, it wasn;t going to take place in the universe of Gojira (which is refreshing for a change), but still follows the basic concept once you get past the design, which isn't that much of a travesty as far as Hollywood adaptations are concerned.
And from most of the reactions on Japanese forums/manga forums that are following this, the reaction as stated before has been heavily positive. Sure, some fans will be displeased or butt hurt, acting like this is the New DmC Dante (Except that the reactions are the opposite of each other when comparing these two: Ultraman mostly positive, Dmc somewhat mostly negative), but hey, can't please everyone. But at least look into things before calling it generic and all of that white noise, you might become interested later on.
Sorry if I'm not the type to be swayed by general opinion. Especially since the Japanese love their giant mecha animes. And how is my opinion any more 'white noise' than yours?
