Griffith said:Some parts I did better than others, though they may be opposite depending on your criteria (accuracy vs making things fit), but you can't have a real valid overlay without a 3D global map at the same angle as Miura's image.
Aazealh said:Yeah, I think an important point is lost in those comparisons: the degree to which the landmasses actually differ. When the episode came out I tried to compare Miura's shots with various 3D global maps positioned as close to the angle he uses as I could, and I found that there was just no way to get a good match. They're deformed, but beyond that I believe the scale itself is wrong.
Aazealh said:Even just comparing the two shots of the planet we see in the episode brings up divergences, like the fact the epicenter of the astral "explosion" as seen from the moon is not where it would be in our world.
Maybe he wanted to do a manga so Western that nothing east of Turkey even exists.
