Yeah, that's the impression I got as well. The circular bubble closes around Eva-13 instead of pushing the Wunder away, which suggests it was meant to entrap it instead of protect it.

Yeah, you guys are right. The script even mentions an "A.T. Field cage". My bad!

Wow, so they were planing trap Evangelion 13? Shit, the AAA Wunder is one impressive piece of arsenal and Misato is one hell of a Captain! The new things you learn everyday and the visuals you miss out on if you don't pay attention to what's going on in Evangelion. This especially true for Evangelion 3.33!

EVA13 with "wings" looks like the angel statue without head of NGE.

I just could not identify what those wings are made: crystallized LCL?

Just a random thought, but 13 reminded me of MP Eva with its white body, LoL and wings.

For some reason, I thought that the globe was the Wunder pushing it's ATF out to one concentrated point to slice Unit-13 down the middle. I was wrong, but it's still a cool idea.

Does Eva 13 have an AT field? I ask because once the pods were destroyed, it didn't even put up at AT field at any point, even when the at field piercing ammo was fired at it, sure it would've pierced, but you would've at least seen it get pierced, instead eva 13 seems to just absorb all punishment (literally)

From a different thread that I didn't want to go OT:

View Original PostJornophelanthas wrote:He piloted Unit-13 (and was not just in the passenger seat), and it has not been destroyed.

(I don't know whether Shinji's synchronization was made at all possible by Kaworu's presence, but I think it's unlikely because the Evangelion did not deactivate after Kaworu died. That only happened when Mari forcefully removed Shinji's entry plug.)

An odd thing about Kaworu's death is that no rainbow is present, suggesting that he might not be "completely dead". When Shinji ejects, we see an odd shot of Kaworu, in school uniform, vanishing into the distance. The implication might be that Kaworu's soul now inhabits the Eva, and Shinji is leaving it behind by leaving the Eva.

It seems fitting for the 13th Angel (Dai 13 Shito) and Evangelion 13 (Evangelion Dai 13gouki) to end up being one and the same... And Kaworu did say that they would meet again.

According to Mari, no. What this means is unclear.

Is there any explanation for why they added the 第 to Eva-13 somewhere?
I don't remember them ever using that for Evas.

The best we came up with is that it's meant to connect Eva-13 to the 13th Angel somehow.

Well, those coffins on the Moon were never explained, were they...?

I felt a bit sad when EVA-13 fell that way into the ruins after 4th Impact, like unprofitable trash. :sniffle:

Well, how many continuums has Kaworu died in? Two of the coffins are open. Is there a second continuum where he dies prior to the creation of NME?

Guess I'm the first to notice this: Eva 13's drones are called RS Hoppers!
SPOILER: Show

Any guesses on what the name means?
LOL

Actually, they would just be called the RS; the hopper would be where they come from. As to RS, I have no idea. Rotational Shield, perhaps?

The inverted Pyramid remains floating in the air, despite the fact Eva-13 destroys the shaft.


it displays at field without the drones on the shaft. the drones only deployed during Asuka strike.
they are called rs hopper as shown on Shinji and kaworu display after Asuka destroys them.
worthy noting this is the first time we se atf used offensively, god eva 01 shenanigans not withstanding.

The Hopper Units might have done that whilst stored in the shoulder pylons, or it might have been the Mark.09 covering up for Eva-13's inadequacies by lending a hand. Note that Eva-13 fails to demonstrate such amazing ATF use after the destruction of the hoppers, as it has to grab Eva-02's halberd with its bare hands, and doesn't use the ATF to attack the Wunder or block the Wunder's lasers.

S2 Engines are not mentioned in NME so far, but yeah it obviously has something similar to it as 01 has at the moment i assume.

..damn this kinda flew totally over my head that i didnt actually had a umbilical cable..
