It doesn’t bother Shinji that his father (who might be a pimp) thinks giant robots are babe magnets. It doesn’t bother him that he shares an apartment with a strangely masculine German girl. It doesn’t even bother him that the world may be coming to an end thanks to a long forgotten Prince song. The only thing on Shinji’s mind is the nookie, whatever that is.
No one said adolescence was easy.

I’m currently working towards getting The Song Remains The Same mastered to DVD before Christmas. Thankfully, converting the burned-on subtitles of the Fanime/YouTube version to a removable DVD subtitle stream is easier than I would’ve guessed. I’ll take one last stab at converting Song for 16:9 display, but I’m not expecting much. Right now, I’m testing the sub timings for the main feature, after which I’ll convert the subs for the trailer and the deleted scenes and then start the DVD authoring.
However, I did make one last edit to the movie, and it’s significant enough that I decided to replace the YouTube upload that contains the scene affected (Part 8). My biggest disappointment with the game’s story is that the villain is not defined very well. In an effort to fix this, I rearranged some dialogue so that the details of the villain’s ultimate plan are now revealed earlier. It’s a small change, but one that makes the story a little more coherent (In the original staging of the scene, Faye and Kent seem to be responding to revelations they haven’t heard yet) and adds more tension to the ensuing big three-way brawl that originally occurred before this information came out.

Shortly after The Song Remains The Same was posted to YouTube, I found this blog post in which the writer tries to tie the game story’s thematic elements with that of the series proper. I responded with some thoughts of my own in the post’s comments.

At Sakura Con in Seattle, WA earlier this year, someone asked Escaflowne‘s character designer Nobuteru Yuuki if he’d ever seen a little fan parody called Nescaflowné:
Press: Have you seen the fan edit of the Escaflowne movie titled Nescaflowne, and how do you feel about people playing with your designs and spoofing them and whatnot?
NY: I have not actually seen that movie, but would be very interested in doing so. but generally I am not a character designer who feels the need to have complete control over everything I draw. If fans create something like a doujinshi or cosplay, or even fan dubs I feel that in a way it shows how well liked my characters are. So I generally like to see people enjoying my designs.
