Will Webuild remove the 'It Just So Happens' part of NGE?

I was thinking about that scene where the transport aircraft for Sangoki (The unfortunate EVA-03, that is) tries to hurry to Japan and flies through a cumulonimbus cloud formation where that scum Bardiel happens to be hiding. Flash! Crackle! Bardiel's made himself home aboard the Eva, and takes control of it without anyone having any idea how he got on board, except for the viewer.

All this would never have happened if the pilot had simply altered his flight path a little, and Bardiel would have probably come in after Zeruel struck, making him the 14th instead of the 13th.

Similarly, how exactly does Ireul enter? Fuyutsuki and the bridge crew mention substandard construction and air bubbles, but why does Ireul come up when he does and then spread so fast? Is that junction between plates where he enters a crack? Same goes for Leliel, who is just...bizarre.

Will Webuild decide to remove these 'it just so happens' sort of events and make it look like someone did something on purpose? Like Bardiel sneaking in inside a thunderstorm and arranging for a lightning strike to stick him to one of the Evas? Or Ireul sneaking in through a confirmed defect in construction? Zeruel having an anti-radar coating? That sort of stuff would add a lot of credibility, methinks.

Similarly, how exactly does Ireul enter?


My guess was it was similar to Bardiel's entrance. Someone (if I recall correctly) mentions that there is corrosion on some plates. Perhaps if the plane (or train, whatever is carrying the plates to the Geofront) was enveloped in the same type of cloud, then got struck or whatever. Then it would wait there until they just happened to run the power or hot water through the pipes, then used the energy to grow out of an embryonic form into the adult form [/fanwank]

Same goes for Leliel, who is just...bizarre.

Leliel was just waiting there in embryonic form, then turned into the adult form. What suprises me is that no-one discovered it while they were building Tokyo-3.

Yeah, I would like some more information than the poorly constructed theory I had.

Well, it DID have the ability to disappear and reappear out of nowhere. I always assumed it just appeared out of nowhere like they had said.

It's always that. :evil: That's EXACTLY what I hope won't come in Rebuild.

If it comes, well, never mind, I guess. Anno is Anno. :roll:

Yeah, they should also explain his stretchy arms.

Maybe he's a symbiote, like Venom in Spider-Man 3? He starts off as a fungus, and then merges with the Eva, and by joining with it, he dies when the Eva dies (When Sho rips it apart). He mutates the arms as a convenience...but I guess they worked out the other way in the end.
