I'm now hoping with all my heart that Sadamoto will actually treat us to that ceremony. Hey, if the secret wish in the deep corner of that same heart ever since starting to read this manga in 2001 (or something) was delivered, that must count for something, right? :tongue:

Shinji could have crushed the dummy plug when he attacked them. Under normal circumstances, without any sort of plug, an EVA can't operate.
Of course I could be wrong, but I guess we have to wait and see what Sadamoto is going to do.

Not sure what to say other than "meh". If Sadamoto leaves this at "BTDT fan wish fulfillment, canonicized", without any subversion or "twists", then color me disappointed. (Not that I had any expectations to begin with. [/episode 24]) I hope he ultimately uses it as a launchpad for something a little more meaty.

NGE is a boys' adventure story about giant robots punching each other. It's wish fulfillment to begin with.

Also, I'm back, beyatches!

Please tell me that there is irony in here somewhere. You emit an idiosyncratic interference signal that foils my irony detectors, so I honestly can't tell.

At least the manga.

As this is playing out like a SRW title with EoE in it, the MPs are gonna regen, Sepheric EVA 01 shows up only to be bitchslapped from godhood (MX had a Retuning-Mode RahXephon iirc, same concept though) by something (my bet's Jet Alone) and there's going to be a GNR fight. >>

I would not be in the least surprised if Sadamoto did this

Probably not... Sadamoto cast JA into the same pit of "you are not worthy of my condensed plot arc" shame as Leliel and friends.

and there's going to be a GNR fight. >>

:imagines a stationary, multi-tiered Yoshitaka Amano rendition of GNR on left side of screen, and squashed sprites of Eva-01 and -02 on the right taking turns attacking:

Eva-02 > Progressive Knife > Giant Rei's Right Nipple
HP -320

Eva-01 > Song of the Sephiroth (MP Needed - 99) > Giant Rei's Left Breast
HP -999

Giant Rei > Bug-Eyed Stare > Both Evas
HP -678, -781

Speaking of which, Giant Rei shouldn't have been giving them the Bug Eyed Stare during the chest tier battle. Apparently, I could not grasp the true form of her breast-based attacks. :bigeyes:

...Don't give Banpresto ideas. Though it's end with a GNR being smashed into light by the GOLDION CRUSSSSSSSSHHHHHHHAAAAAAA!!! or by pissing off the Zeorymer. >>

Considering GNR could phase through normal matter, and her super-massive form grows out of a frickin' AATF, I wonder how the hell the Goldion Crusher would be able to work on her. But, errrr, this isn't the crossover thread, so never mind...

SWEET BABY JESUS, Sadamoto... working... manga... progress?! This is such a miraculous occurence I don't even have the words to describe it.

Yeah the manga is of inferior quality to the series. But how many times do you need to see the exact same thing happening in the exact same way? In any event, I'm just happy to see progress being made on the eva manga.
"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

I just read it to this song (at 2:06 seconds to be exact). It was thrilling. I don't know how, but it was.

No spoilers, but suffice to say those scans posted on here are not from chapter 85.

Yes, they are. Many of the manga sites and other hostings are listing what is actually 'Stage 84b' under the name 'Stage 85'.

84b is just the shot of Eva-01 rising out of the pyramid with a bunch of Asuka getting completely beaten by the power running out and the MP Evas. The pages that have been floating around recently of Eva-01 fighting the MP Evas would be from the actual Stage 85.

So much for 'no spoilers' :P

Right, so this is some sort of prologue to the stage 85.

84b is just the shot of Eva-01 rising out of the pyramid with a bunch of Asuka getting completely beaten by the power running out and the MP Evas.


Thats basically the entirety of what ive found so far. Is the rest of this not out yet, if not when?

Well I mean, the last 4-5 pages of this thread are full of that same info; it's really not spoilers for anyone reading the thread. If by 'no spoilers' you were indicating you didn't want any and had been avoiding those details somehow, I'm sorry. I hadn't considered that possibility with the way you had worded it.

Thats basically the entirety of what ive found so far. Is the rest of this not out yet, if not when?

The only other thing we have are two pages that were leaked or given away online that have been shown here in the last 4-5 pages of the thread. Not sure when the whole stage will be released/translated.
