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: You Can Start Again

Wow i thought this was on hiatus but i guess i just missed a couple of chapters. So after having caught up again, yup this is still among my favorite eva fics i've read. I find the slow methodical pace to be actually quite enjoyable, leaves me wanting more. It also makes the changes Shinji is underg...

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...

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.

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...
