It may have simply been an issue of length, matching the sequence to the song.
I'm not sure that really works -- the version of the song that was used in the film was cut down from a longer version as is. Plus, one can really manipulate the timing of individual shots. I think there was a different reason.
A lot of them are really good and disturbing such as the Eva-03 trying to crawl away and Asuka screaming.
Asuka screaming? As I mentioned to Xous, the sound (which, transcribed, is "KISHAAAAAAAA"... however that would be enunciated...) is made by Eva-03. But they have "(Asuka)" written next to "Eva-03", as if to suggest that Asuka is behind
And, yeah, I bet the set for 3.0 is going to be very large, very expensive, and even more overloaded with rejected material that we'll get to weep over.

I'm assuming the post-Bardiel Shinji reactions/Asuka getting pulled out of the Plug was cut/unused because it wouldn't make much sense without the context of Asuka face melt... (snip)
If they wanted to keep it, they would have just modified it to be consistent with other changes, like anything else.
BTW, was anything cut/unused with 1.xx?
There's at least some stuff, yes. I never took a really good look, though, since 1.xx was pretty boring for me. But I'll grab the books from home over Easter weekend and see if I can scan some things from that, too.
With regard to Shinji standing around and watching Zeruel's 'splosions, it seems to be conforming to the screenplay scenario here. Mari is waiting in the Geofront to fight Zeruel -- that part isn't different.
, you keep calling Seele00TextOnly
Heh! I don't think it would happen if I wrote out her whole name. It's only when I omit the "TextOnly" that my brain mysteriously gravitates toward an "08"... I shall be more alart.
Random Goody: In the screenplay version, it looks like Zeruel tries to eat Eva-01 right before Shinji goes bonkers. "My tenant is feeling lonely -- GET IN MY BELL-AY!"
Post getting long... I'll reply to Xous later.
