By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion.
We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof.
For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song; and they that wasted us required of us mirth, saying, Sing us one of the songs of Zion.
How shall we sing the Lord's song in a strange land?
If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning.
>>4141658הבה נגילההבה נגילההבה נגילה ונשמחה
If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth, if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy.
I love my cute wife Rei
>>4141674Remember, o Lord, the children of Edom in the day of Jerusalem; who said, Rase it, rase it, even to the foundation thereof.
>>4141858I was going to omit the last three verses since I usually post based on my own mood, and the last verses of that psalm seem to me vengeful, and I was not in such a mood, but perhaps they would fit for Lilith.>>4141664I really need to learn Hebrew.
>>4141438Nice to hear from you and that you have at least some time to dedicate to your pursuits.Regarding the archive you mentioned, I have no idea how old that anon's is, but I'm glad it exists. It doesn't have every single frame of her in the series, but enough snapshots to suffice as an archive, though if I recall there isn't even one there for every scene she is in. One that comes to mind that I believe is missing is the scene in the hospital with Rei III, where she says she believes she's the third. Maybe one day I will do the more arduous task of putting every frame of her into an archive.Regarding the name for the transcript project, which internally I've just been calling the Ayanami Transcription Project, an alternative I like is Apophthegmata Reiae, modeled after the Apophthegmata Patrum, the Sayings of the Desert Fathers. Since the root ἀπόφθεγμα means "a terse, pointed saying" (Liddell & Scott), or maxim, I think it would fit Rei quite well.Regarding my side of the project, I am still committed to it, but I have made little progress because of obstructions from my life. Until at least January, most of my time will be spent on taxing labour, but I am scraping away at the work as I can. So far I can think of three different English translations for the series and films: ADV, Netflix, and the new box set edition, but I don't know how different the latter two are from each other. There may also be fan translations out there from the days of yore, but I don't know where to find them, if they exist.I'll keep working as I can. Take care and keep yourself well.

i love rei
>>4141653It might be on purpose, with this being an ode to the lady (?) in the picture, but God is a male in Greek.You want "Ο Θεός μου", not ''Η Θεός μου". The female would be "Η Θεά μου", I guess.
...How many unique images even are there of Rei? A hundred thousand? A million? It seems impossible to even come across a majority of them, let alone preserve them. What a lifetime of work in itself... Would that we would live a thousand years. I suppose the finality of this life gives what we can accomplish in such a short amount of time meaning and significance. There is a peace in recognizing this, as well as a profound sadness.
>>4142289Good that you like the name. I've been looking further into the translations, and it so far looks like the Netflix and NA Blu-Ray (i.e. box set) editions have identical sub and dub translations, but just to be sure, I am going through each episode with each version. Nice and steady work so far. Also, with the recent news, I hope you can stay out of the intensifying conflicts; the world seemingly grows ever unsafer.>>4142998It was on purpose, and as you assumed was done towards her. At least with Attic, θεός can be supplied with the feminine definite article to provide for "goddess" in place of θεᾱ́, so I simply, though perhaps spuriously (not having yet studied Koine's intricacies), applied it to Θεός to produce "God [female]". Also, I'm curious: You sound like you are not familiar with Rei. Did the Greek summon you? How did you happen upon here?
>>4144196I know the Burger King crown image is powerful, but Rei doesn't eat goyslop.
>>4144251Just a Greek browsing... A moment of boredom/weakness brought me on this board.You can use it like that, too, I guess, for the reasons you said, just a bit weird, for modern Greek, at least, which you clearly did not write... That's about all the input I can provide, you have studied this language a bit more than me, although I'm native...
>>4142903hey me too
>>4144251>I hope you can stay out of the intensifying conflictsDulce et decorum est pro patria mori. I would gladly volunteer if I could, but I won't be able to until at least summer 2023, so don't worry.
Does this belong here?
Resized this one a little bit because file size limitations
I have a question and I don't know if it will be answered here, but why was Rei always appearing at the beginning of NGE and Rebuilds?She would appear for a few seconds and she would not be seen again until we were introduced to her in both the original series and the movies, which is almost at the end of the first chapter, I never understood exactly why.
>>4147508I have that question in my mind too. I believe it was added just for the sake of mystery. You know, like G-Man in Half Life. However, if we are to justify it by lore, could it be a hint at the somewhat spiritual connection of Rei and Shinji?
Been playing a ton of EDF recently. Came across this
>>4147905In fact, I think it makes a lot of sense. After she disappears, almost immediately Shinji sees the First Angel. I can argue then that yes, from the beginning Shinji and Rei were connected, both with themselves and with the Angels.
I often feel psychically attacked looking at enough images of Rei. Nothing else does this to me. What is going on?
>>4147905>>4148536I see it as a guardian angel motif, it's the show's way of telling us that Lilith watches over her children.Being guarded over by a Rei ghost during Human Instrumentality is what tells us who can come back if they choose to do so (i.e. not Kaji). This is of course nothing but my headcanon.
>>4144318Well, χαῖρε ὦ φίλε. I hope you would stay.>>4144663"If you could hear, at every jolt, the bloodCome gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs,Obscene as cancer,Bitter as the cudOf vile, incurable sores on innocent tongues-My friend, you would not tell with such high zestTo children ardent for some desperate glory,The old lie: Dulce et decorum estPro patria mori."No country here today is worth dying for, my friend. The only country we ought to love is the one beyond this place.>>4147508In my view, it is a foreshadowing of Instrumentality to come later and of Rei's connection to people, including or especially Shinji --- at least in the actual Evangelion, i.e, in the series of the 1990s. I can agree with both >>4147905 and >>4148536. I agree completely with >>4150105's first point. Regarding Kaji, however, it's not known to us whether she appeared to Kaji at his death. It may be that such a thing could only happen after her soul was reunited after the events of Episode 23, but this doesn't align with the first episode's appearance, unless her connection to Shinji was an exception to this possible rule. We should discuss this further.
Any chance you lot can help me track a certain Rei drawing? It had her looking at an aquarium of Jellyfish, with the description saying that the artist liked to think Rei had an affinity for them due to both having difficulty expressing themselves and being raised in tanks. I know it's not a lot to go off of, so any art with Rei looking at aquariums is appreciated.
>>4141653Old Church Slavic in OP when?Bъ нaчáлѣ бѣ̀ cлóвo, и҆ cлóвo бѣ̀ къ бг҃ѹ, и҆ бг҃ъ бѣ̀ cлóвo.
If you pay close attention, then you may find similarities.
>>4150453Shinji and Rei are connected for the first time since he got on the EVA, right? I mean the First, since all this ends up being a kind of endless loop where Shinji feels alone and hurt in life as in the fusion of all minds, finally he wants everything to return to normal and says goodbye to Rei or something .I don't understand much about the omen thing you're talking about, if it was true then everyone in the series must have felt it the same as Shinji or they must have mentioned it once.With Kaji, I don't think his mind has joined the Human Instrumentalization, after all he had died long before it was done. He is still alive because of the restart of existence that happens at the end of EoE.
>>4144255Can I ask? What's goyslop? Is that like a joke on kike restourants?
Imagine if the show was about Rei piloting EVA unit 01...
>>4151663No Shinji, no Asuka, no pain...
>>4151663Bring me Mobile Suit Rei where Rei makes heart wrenching/irresistible sounds/expressions while soloing the enemy and making cute inner monologues to her only spiritual support, the viewer.
>>4151685Stole the words out of my mouth...
>>4151663>>4151664>>4151685>>4151686Guys, guys, nobody said it'll be paradise here on Earth, but maybe in the afterlife...
>>4152073So, what does Rei smell like?
>>4152123Like primordial soup
Do the shoulders have any symbolic meaning, aside from being Rei Ayanamis shoulders?
>>4141654>By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion.We can't expect God to do all the work.
>>4150453>The only country we ought to love is the one beyond this place."For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come." (Hebrews 14:13)However"But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel." (Timothy 5:8)And may all saint Russian warriors from Alexander Nevsky to Fyodor Ushakov a proof of it.One question I wanted to ask is, should we add lines of other characters for the sake of contextual clarity, or should we only leave her own lines? I've been making a transcript featuring others' dialogue lines of my choice for as far as episode 14, but I'm not sure it's needed.
a҆́щe бo живéмъ, гд҇eви живéмъ, a҆́щe жe ѹ҆миpáeмъ, гд҇eви ѹ҆миpáeмъ: a҆́щe ѹ҆̀бo живéмъ, a҆́щe ѹ҆миpáeмъ, гд҇ни є҆cмы̀.

>>4155806>I am you and you are meso, are there any stories or doujins where Shinji and Rei are body swapped?
Some Tumblr vibe for you.>>4155929Same.
>>4153744I don't believe in nations, but I will continue to reflect on what you have referenced.Regarding context: so far I have been including only her lines, but now that you mention it I wonder if it would be better to provide at least immediate context, such as the responses to her words by another character or vice versa. It would still be her sayings, but provided with additional, probably useful information. I am through Episode 10 now for all of the English versions, but going forward can start recording context lines. We could ultimately have a conservative version that has only Rei's lines and an expanded version that includes context.As I've been working on this, I think that down the line, once the transcription is done, we should also aim to note all her appearances from start to end, including, ideally, all frames where she appears, as I mentioned before. Doing this work, I've realized that moments where she appears but silently can actually prove very important (an obvious example being the first time we see her as an apparition at the start of the series). Obviously, this would probably take some time, since I assume we both have other responsibilities, but I think it would be worth the effort. Ultimately, I'd like to make this into either a collected, single document one could download for reference or an accessible website (which may work better for supporting all the frames and different languages and editions).This in all will likely take several years, not of continuous effort but across that time. I suppose I hope we all make it that long at least.
>>4157369>We could ultimately have a conservative version that has only Rei's lines and an expanded version that includes context.I will keep doing it this way then. One thing worth mentioning is that which contextual lines should be included could differ in mine and your (and potentially other) translations.>once the transcription is done, we should also aim to note all her appearances from start to endI agree, it would be a pleasant work to do. Once this one is eventually done of course. Don't know when it will happen, but if Lord allows, it will. I have already regretted making some kind of deadline for myself previously because life is so full of unplanned events, take this war for example.>Ultimately, I'd like to make this into either a collected, single document one could download for reference or an accessible websiteI think hosting an entire website for it would be a little too much (although if anyone possesses such resources, sure). A solution I'd rely on would be a Mega folder. However, once we complete the compendium of her quotes, I suggest putting it in the general's pastebin right off, at least for the time being.

Second Rei figure. She melts my heart.
It is only by the intervention of the Good Lord that such perfection is possible in this world.
How do you feel that Rei is often drawn with the proportions of an adult woman in fanart?
>>4159654>Buying soulless plastic instead of crafting your own papercraft model>>4159660Rei is a concept, not something material. She's a hint at becoming something bigger, something better. She is like an icon of a saint person.>>4159705Weird, because she was never meant to grow old.
