Re: C.T.1290 versus Asuka. Examining the good and bad.

Well the outward facade is just that, a facade. There's quite a few examples of Asuka being kind and considerate, like one of the things that come to mind at the moment is Misatos offer to take the pilots out to eat, Asuka could've stubbornly asked for something extravagant but asked for a simple di...

Re: If Mari is british...

You know, since british often refers to the UK and not just England, plus isn't some of her background about attending a catholic school? With Ireland being more catholic than England and i think you know where i'm going with this. Mari with an Irish accent... i like it. All hail Irish Mari! :marihe...

Re: How Evangelion Gets Away With Being Terrible

Again, the core of Asukas' character is the hedgehog dilemma, the why can be damn near anything and it still wouldn't change the core, as that is what ultimately defines her character, the background information is a bonus but with the limitations of a movie series i don't mind the loss of backgroun...

Re: How Evangelion Gets Away With Being Terrible

Well when you think about it, at the surface Shikinamis arc seems "less" than Soryus but i think it got simplified and a lot of superfluous things were removed. Instead of going for the mother complex and all the issues that came from that, it focused on the core issue of eva, the hedgehog...

Re: If Shinji were to die in the final film.

No reason to be with the people who viewed him as a monster who ended the world. I'm sure that Wille wouldn't have any problems if he died at some point. Technically they never said that, the one that told him the rest of humanity felt that way and blamed him for the state of the world was Kaworu, ...

Re: Who cooks better: Asuka or Rei

Gonna go with Asuka on this one, in 2.0 she at least had knowledge of seasonings so that's a big help when trying to make something. Rei never really had experience with it so even if she were to follow a recipe they tend to leave the seasonings up to personal taste. I could see Rei making the novic...

Re: If Shinji were to die in the final film.

Shinji's journey is about finding his place and purpose in the world, is it piloting eva? gaining his fathers approval? seeking redemption for his mistakes? I just don't see it culminating in his death, it'd be counterproductive to his journey as that require he actually lives.

Re: Will Shinji Blame Misato If She Killed Kaworu With The Choker?

Doesn't the choker activate after it detects the possible 13th angel? It could be activated manually but it could also automatically activate if it detected certain type of activity, then there's also Kaworus line about the choker being made initially for him. I think it just activated automatically...

Re: What was Seele's original goal for Fourth Impact? Eva Q

This'll delve into some fanwanking so getting that caveat out of the way. I think 3i was part of SELEEs plan, the only two times we've seen an eva awaken it required an angel core to do so (Unit-1 with Zeruels and Unit-13 with the 12th angel), given that info along with the rituals Seele needed to c...

Re: What was Seele's original goal for Fourth Impact? Eva Q

It's not 100% clear but SELEEs plan involves the resurrection of lillith and the awakening of the "true" eva, with the Mark-6 being made towards that purpose. Now given that Unit-13 was made to be capable of awakening and cause 4i and all of that, as Fuyutsuki says, went almost as Seele wa...

There's the hint of some bad blood between them I never really thought about it that way,though i can see why there might be friction.

Re: From Your Lips to the Author's Ears: Story Ideas

Lately I've been reading some post-Q fics and something i have noticed is there's very little exploration of the Misato & Asuka relationship. All the raw materials are there to expand on. Misato being one of the few people Asuka opened up to, it stands to reason that after things went to hell po...

Re: The Red Soil and Rei's Monologue

One thing I've wondered is, given the importance of turning the lifeless red oceans to blue and full of life in 2.0. That it could be a reference or perhaps taken inspiration from red tide events in reality? Since those are most often associated with mass die offs in the areas that it happens.

Re: First official image of "New Unit 2"

^ Plus i'd say experience =/= maturity, as those do not always correlate. Sure in some aspects Asuka does act more mature than she did during most of 2.0 but in others she is the same if not a bit worse. If Asuka has spent those 14 years being the soldier and eva pilot she is in 3.0, is she an emoti...
