One of the more powerful aspects of the franchise is in the way it which it offers hope in the wake of destruction. Even after the apocalypse of EoE, there's still hope. Even when everything seems FUBAR, the franchise encourages you to endure and pick up the pieces, offering the possibility of a brighter future if you try.

Would be a shame, IMO, if we skipped Shinji at his lowest point and we miss what turns him around toward the proper direction again. If you skip to the final steps of his closure, then you rob his recovery of its weight, cheapening it and making it less relatable to the audience.

Can't say I agree. But hey, too each their own. That's what I was hoping for, for some time to pass to give Shinji time to get the help he needs, as opposed to having his psychosis, despair, and the raging emotions from Misato, Asuka, and the entire Crew Of The Wunder piled on top of ANOTHER Eva attack. Some time to recover, to give him SOME hope. If he's shoved right back into the Eva again after Kaworu died and Gendo got his awakened Eva . . . well it's gonna be a mess all over again.

Would be a shame, IMO, if we skipped Shinji at his lowest point and we miss what turns him around toward the proper direction again.


Seeing a therapist, and spending a few weeks, months or years away to process his situation and get out of his catatonia wouldn't put him in the 'proper direction'. All I'm saying is that it would put him in a position where he has a little more autonomy and control in a situation, or at least give him some time to live a life away from Eva and Wille and Nerv. and give tensions and heated emotions caused by his sudden return and subsequent screw-up some time to cool down.
Then when Misato and Asuka inevitably have to ask him to pilot the Eva again, he wont have to be forced into it at gun/DSS choker point.

I don't see it as the 'final steps' of his closure at all.

The movie should span at least a few days


I hope it's longer, that's all I can say.

Then it'll more be a span of weeks at the very least, seeing how little of EVA-02 was left at the end of Q, unless they do some crazy shit like cutting off EVA-08's head to graft 02's on its body or something like that.

WILLE seems to have a lot of man power, facilities and funding, so I can see them repairing Eva 02 in a few days.
They launched two Evas equipped with 2 heatshields and boosters in orbit, considering that to bring 1 kg in orbit costs around $15.000, and that this kind of technology didn't exist in 2.0, they are filthy rich and absurdly advanced.
Humanity progressed a lot in the 14 years between SI and N3I, so it could have progressed a lot in the timeskip too.

^Neat. The red strip at the bottom can conventiently shadow the home/favorited apps. At one point I had it's counterpart from Q as my wallpaper, so I may keep this for future use. Currently still fond of my 2.22 blood streaked moon close up. ^_^

While i don't disagree with Willies access to resources. Technology wise, humanity did have a moon base by 2.0, complete with enough manufacturing facilities to build an Eva and enough access to space to have orbiting vehicles.

As a note, that image is a tad smaller and less detailed than it should be (1800x2500 vs 2200x3100) because no site allowed the original version to be uploaded without first converting to jpg and compressing it horrendously; the smaller version was the only one that worked at the time. All the same anyways, gotta repeat the edit due to... some very silly mistakes in the cleaning process.
I'm a lurker at heart.
