Re: Rebuild Instrumentality Theory

All of the Impacts in the new films seem to involve an Adam and a portal opening up to another space. I'm following you on everything else except for this. I can understand how the first two involve Adam, but how does Near-3I? And how exactly does 4I? (unless you're talking about Kaworu, in this ca...

Re: Rebuild Instrumentality Theory

So serious question: is this just for fun, or are you serious enough about these ideas to be able to think of anything that would convince you to drop them? The falsfiability that I mentioned. I realize that "fan theories" usually amount to "wild speculation" and never aspire fo...

Re: Rebuild Instrumentality Theory

Why would Shinji create the kind of reality shown in the movies? Tons of stuff has absolutely nothing to do with Shinji's happiness levels. You don't need to make Angels explode into LCL, add three Adams, invent the Spear of Cassius, change Lilith's mask, etc etc etc in order to find happiness -- w...

Re: Rebuild Instrumentality Theory

As for the previous Evangelion, many people took what I made as 'entertainment' and turned it into a 'target of dependence.' I wanted to take responsibility for those people becoming impudent. I wanted to bring the work back to the level of entertainment. However, I’ve started to pull back from tha...

Re: Rebuild Instrumentality Theory

In a sense, Anno might be using Shinji's neverending Instumentality purgatory as a metaphor for his fanbase, whom he must know has been similarly "stuck" in an endless cycle of theories, alternate fanfic endings, etc. ever since the original series ended 20 years ago. Yeah, this is basica...

Rebuild Instrumentality Theory

Alright, I've been sitting on this theory for quite a while now, so I may as well share it. What if the Rebuild films actually take place within a reality constructed by Shinji during Instrumentality? Certainly this idea has been brought up in some fashion during the many years of discussion these f...

It's really amazing how much they packed into just six episodes. I already want to re-watch it!

Had a feeling you would say something like this.

Either way, I've changed my mind. A fantastic show is a fantastic show at any age. And FLCL definitely is fantastic.

FLCL

Quite the wild ride, I suppose.

I think I liked it. But I can't help but worry that I watched it at the wrong age... :shrug:

I genuinely thought the phallus was supposed to be her leg and I was very confused.

Re: Why NECESSARILY do the last 3 angels have those appearances?

I'm pretty sure that OP is commenting more about the actual design of the angels rather than their significance to the story, if I understand correctly. But even then I don't really agree. Arael looks pretty cool, imo. And Armisael is great because it sort of represents NGE's mix of science (wi...
