Not sure how secret the base itself was suppoesd to be, I'm sure there's parts of the base that are more "secret" than others. But what did they do to all the people in the original NGE that built the room Lilith was in?


Perhaps they "relocated" them to not-gulags in Siberia or Alaska?
"Let me make sure I'm understanding you correctly. You've read through this entire story so far. To recap, the story has featured Rei wondering if she has become a giant insect and considering wearing a Carmen Miranda hat, Kaji completely blowing off important duties, Shinji and Asuka blowing up a building downtown, Misato driving drunk and nearly killing Rei in a hit-and-run, Fuyutski fearing imminent death from a man dressed as a giant slice of pepperoni, Rei talking to a bagel, and Shinji and Asuka digging up an entire cemetery. And now it's character derailment. Okay."-Esselfortium

You just unlocked the secret to how it will end Kaworu Vs Tauburn :lol:

The fact that an Akira Ishida character is piloting a mecha which is like the "dark twin" of the main character's mecha makes me suspicious if Enokido wasn't planning ahead...

hot damn

mention of Tauburn had me fantasizing that Takuto is going to replace Shinji


then we'd again get delicious, delicious Takuto & character voiced by Akira Ishida hijinks


ITSA PUUUUUNCH

More fabulous I think would be the development of a Ryousuke/Reiji-esque relationship between Shinji and Kaworu - Adam fucks Lilith and Shinji gets to join the Official Complete Losers with Eyepatches Club...

So, there are shmucks working the space station, but Gendo and Fuyu can't land?....

I guess the moon base is reserved for SEELE club members only, and no icky NERV losers are allowed in.

Off-topic: I LOL'd pretty hard at this. But on a more serious note, how long did the whole Zeruel event take? It's hard to say that from the time we see Kaworu on the moon to the time after Zeruel gets LOLPWND by 01, about 20 minutes had passed :???:

On-Topic: As for the whole moon base issue, I'm a little more fascinated by Kaworu. Specifically, how the hell is he just chilling on the moon half-naked? If I was working up there I'd feel pretty cheated that some albino teenager can chill on the surface of the moon without lugging a 2-ton space suit around :tantrum:

Slightly off-topic (again): At the end of 1.11 I recall that during the last scene when Kaworu wakes up, he comes out of something similar to a coffin. There's two to the left of him already open and many more to the right that are still closed. Any speculation on this? MAYBE THE COFFINS CONTAIN THE WORKERS!!!

I would have loved to have sat in on the planning meeting for central dogma.

"Yeah, so, just a galaxy pattern on the roof spanning approximately a kilometer. Make it incredibly detailed. And if you can, get some icebergs. Oooh, ice might actually melt... Get some synthetic icebergs, anywhere between 80 to several hundred meters high, depending on what size eva we're using."


Wasn't the Geo-Front already there and Gehirn simply found it? I always assumed that all the wacky crap concerning Lillith's crucifix as well as the Geo-Front's existence came with Lillith when the Black Moon she came in slammed into Earth and that Gehirn simply built over all of it.

Forgive me if im mistaken, but i get the idea that this time round they really arent trying to cover up as much as they tried to cover up in the series. Which is something i like so much about the remake. It makes it a little bit more realistic. The world knows some serious shit is going down (and has gone down [2nd impact]) and all they (the public) care about is that something is being done about it. Everyone knows, public eyes included, that there is a huge base on the moon doing some pretty heavy stuff, and see it as a blessing. I wouldnt imagine anyone would be trying to hide its existence.

BUT! If you want to think of a reason to justify its existence without spilling the beans, I think the possibility of the earth being destroyed ( or at the least, for a time totally unhabitable) a bloody good reason for one. Id almost say it would be a top priority

Its 'get to higher ground!!!' on a rather large scale. Or at the least, an excellent excuse :p

If they can 'build' an EVA, they can build a moon base...

Yeah, that's exactly what I was thinking when I clicked on this topic.

Sure, building an Eva is more realistic than building a moon base, but neither are realistic at all. Just like they have the technology for MAGI and N^2 bombs and stuff, they have the technology to build stuff on the moon too.

They built it using a monkey's paw.
