Re: You Can Start Again

Great chapter, that twist that cliffhanger :devil: Anyway Looks like things are going to pick up soon as NErv looks to be gearing up to something. Shinji continues to be a rather good mentor when it comes to piloting and i feel some foreshadowing from Asukas "just live your life" line as S...

Re: Rewatching the Rebuilds, and my thoughts

-There's some genuinely great shots that help to convey particular moods (the far-off shot of Rei and Gendo eating dinner is appropriately distant, I like the closeness used in the various shots when Shinji and Asuka share the same bed). This sounds silly, but think of it this way: if one minor asp...

Re: Ritsuko and Asuka as Mirror Images

At the peril of coming off as an a-hole, i thought this was pretty obvious, a lot of the major characters in NGE share the same building blocks. Shinji has dad and mom issues Asuka has mom issues Misato has dad issues Ritsuko has mom issues Gendo has dead wife issues Said issues manifested in differ...

It's what literally happened at the end of 3.0, after she opened up his entry plug one of the first things she does is mention how he didn't come to her aid.

Re: So was Asuka just mad at Shinji in Q?

^ A lot of Shinjis action boil down to bad choices with good intentions. Sounds interesting, do tell :) It's fairly simple, It was stated at the beginning of the movie that Kaji had been away for 2 years without making contact, so it'd be hard for him to have someone grow the watermelons in secret f...

Re: So was Asuka just mad at Shinji in Q?

Asuka being angry with Shinji for the state of the world doesn't make a lot of sense since there's plenty of evidence that a lot more happened after he got absorbed into unit-1 (11th and 12th angels, 12th angel-possessed mark-6 making contact with Lillith and proper 3rd impact), and while the Bardie...

Re: Sakura Nagashi Theory - Rebuild & A Missing Character

I'm not a believer of the sequel theory so i'm not sure about a multi-verse/reality separated Shinji and Asuka, but i could see a uniquely NTE time loop being a thing, given some of Kaworus more cryptic lines. As far as the songs are concerned, i think Sakura Nagashi could be perspective from 3 pote...

Re: If Mari and Asuka are/were Gay. . .

Personally i don't see it, far too little interaction to make assumptions. That being said though, this reminds me of one of my biggest pet peeves i have when it comes to shipping. That character X spends time with character Y (whether by choice or not) then that means they're into each other, and i...

Re: Introduction, Toxicity of AsuShin and other things

The way i see it is that it's not Asushin that's toxic, but Shinji and Asuka as individuals are. The same reasons that they couldn't work together would apply to anyone else, Shinji would be passive and pull away if things got rough, Asuka would push them away. Their personalities were both defined ...

Re: Key of Nebuchadnezzer Speculation

My personal fanwank regarding nebbz key is that it was what Seele used to shed their mortal bodies and is also the key ( :w00t: punny) to HIP in the NTE. It's what would allow humans to transcend and evolve beyond their humany selves. It's also why the FoI's were FoI in the first place, without the ...

Re: Rebuild is shallow tangent

One thing to keep in mind is that 3.0 is heavily heavily biased towards Shinji's POV. So the sudden distinct apparent differences in characters (mainly Asuka and Misato) are due to that restrictive perspective. We don't know much of what happened between 2.0 and 3.0 nor do we know what happened afte...

Re: Mari Breaking the Loop?

I already talked plenty about the SDAT in previous posts. As for the idea that rebuild is a sequel, it's an old theory with plenty of evidence. Here's an image, not mine, on the subject: https://i.imgur.com/uON8u9Y.jpg The issue with using similar scenes and shots is that there really is no way to ...

Re: Sequel theory once again.

Well the most compelling idea you've brought forth for sequel theory are Kaworus cryptic lines, the outline itself just isn't enough. Cause for one thing, if memory serves the MP evas landed back headless plus that doesn't explain the conspicuous damage and red tint to the area around the outline wi...

Re: Mari Breaking the Loop?

^ Asuka assumes that's the case, but it's likely she said it out of possessiveness rather than something unique. Given how easily Mari could use it, i imagine it to establishing a "user" in windows 10 and simply switching between them for different pilots. As for the whole plugsuit cores =...

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...

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...
