It's his line in the series when he sees Lilith for the first time, thinking it's Adam.
I think it's something like "you who exist are a mother to us". I guess it sounds more poetic in Japanese, in english it'd be more like "You're like a mother to us"

Because you don't know that usage of たる and thus are incorrectly translating it as "sufficient". Correctly, in this case it's the following.
https://kotobank.jp/word/たる-563315

>>5683585
>>5683603
And you both didn't parse line correctly in relation to what's the main noun and what's its modifier.

As you can see from the ・・・, the sentence is incomplete. 存在 is a noun there and everything before it modifies it. So "an existence" that "我等の母たる". "Existence that is our mother".

Of course in English, you'd phrase if differently, not make it sound more natural, but the point is that 存在 isn't a verb, so nothing like "you who exist". And as you can confirm in the たるdictionary entry about, neither there's anything to translate as "like a mother", it's simply an existence that is their mother. That's what he says. Oh course if he's wrong in the show universe, he's wrong, but you have to translate what the characters say, not what you know to be true after seeing the entire series.

In closing, Japanese isn't trash. You're still trash at it. Back to the books.

I'm rewatching it after years, but a lot of new people are gonna get into it. Like FF7 it got a huge legacy and a cult follow, but at the same time it wasn't too easy to find it nowdays (for normies). Now that Netflix gave it to masses it will gain new audience for sure.

Most of the PlayStation 2 and Saturn games. Other than the weird promo screensaver disc for the PS1 version of Girlfriend of Steel, I wouldn't recommend that version. A thing to keep in mind is that Girlfriend of Steel 2 is a lot different to 1 though.
Also 1st and 2nd Impressions.
There's some raising project games but I don't know what those play like so I don't know whether they are worth it or not.

I'm not Japanese. You don't have to be Japanese to know Japanese. This usage of たる is not common in modern Japanese, fair enough, but being able to recognize modifiers is a basic skill. I believe Genki first teaches modifiers at like lesson 9 or something relatively early like that.

Soul orchestra it's the best one and it's still painfully mediocre and 3nd impact is good but it's a rythm game, and neither of those are retro, eva crop of games is really bad, 64 having a slightly different ending was nice tho

>> No.5687898

>>5686302
>Battle orchestra is the best one
Eh, it's a nice goofy smash clone. Maybe you're right that it's the "best" one in terms of gameplay alone, but in terms of presentation, Evangelion 64 is fucking phenomenal. I actually like the battle missions (they aren't bad once you get how it works), and some of the mini game missions are alright, while others suck, but they're very short anyway.
All in all, it's the game that feels the most like "Evangelion: The video game" due to how faithful the game is to the series. The first mission alone is amazing, it recreates the first battle against the angel with great atmosphere.
It's something I couldn't find in the other Eva games. Not to mention you can actually control the Eva in a semi-realistic way in real time, instead of it being turn-based like the PS2 game.

Dragon Ball has some good games, either RPGs or fighting games. Super Saiya Densetsu and Super Butoden 2 are classics.
Yuu Yuu Hakusho has some good games too, most famously the Mega Drive game made by Treasure that supports 4-player brawl like Smash Bros.
Sailor Moon also got good fighting games, beat 'em ups, as well as Another Story, an RPG, and some nice puzzle games. SM really got a lot of variety in the games and they're all pretty good save for the PS1 fighting game.
Magic Knight Rayearth also got good games.
Gundam has a bunch of games, Endless Duel on SNES being one of the best, and generally considered one of the best original console (not on arcade) fighting games.
Macross has some good ones too, especially Scrambled Valkyrie.
Mitsume ga tooru got a great game on the Famicom.
Mazinger Z on SNES was neat, rather simple but serviceable, and has a kickass soundtrack.
Zillion on Master System was originally based on a series of the same name, it's a fairly elaborated game that warranted being brought over to the west despite the anime not being a selling point.
Hi no tori (Phoenix/Firebird) got 2 games by Konami based on the Karma chapter of the manga series, which also got a OVA. The Famicom game is a fairly standard side-scroller, nothing to write home about but worth a play, nice music. The MSX2 game was actually pretty cool and original, a sort of shmup/overhead platforming-action hybrid.
Ghost in the Shell for PS1 is a must-play, really original gameplay and a 10/10 techno OST.
Those are just some, there's many more. Gundam alone has a bunch of really good games of varying genres.

How?
Mana isn't an Eva pilot, and we know who she is. We're 3 movies into Rebuild, it's been 12 years, and we still don't know who the fuck Mari is.
Have you played Girlfriend of Steel? Mana's really not similar to Mari at all. If anything, Mayumi from Evangelion 2nd Impression would be more of a parallel since at least she also had glasses.

I think Dragon Ball games are more often discussed than Eva ones.
Sailor Moon got a few threads, sometimes.
Some of the other games are mentioned semi-regularly like MKR, GITS, Endless Duel.
I especially recommend playing Mitsume ga tooru and Hi no tori on MSX though. They are almost never mentioned and they're amazing.

It's weird to me that there was never a good Evangelion game (aside from the visual novel, but I don't really count that). There's been so fucking much merchandise for that series, I would think there would at least be a decent beat'em up or a fighting game or something. Usually retro anime that have a ton of merch wind up having a few good titles just by sheer dumb luck.

>>5682259
Honestly I think Evangelion is the sort of series that can have an effect on anyone who watches it with an open mind. Even if you can't wrap your head around what it's trying to say, the show just has this sense of foreboding and eeriness that pervades it. Plus, given how depressed zoomers and younger millennials seem to be, I can actually see it resonating with them quite a bit.

All things considered, Evangelion 64 is decent and has top tier presentation.
