Re: Why were there only 3 impacts ?

Notice that Lilith's arrival is described as the First Impact, and not Adam's. Adam's White Moon didn't crash land the way that Lilith's Black Moon did because Adam and the Angels were originally intended to inherit the Earth, whereas Lilith usurped it from them when she crash landed. I assume it w...

Re: Pen-Pen's Nature

Upon my most recent NGE re-watch, I'm forced to conclude a fundamental truth about Pen-Pen's nature: Namely, that those who have seen human death are unable to see or interact with Pen-Pen. ⋅ Asuka never seems to acknowledge Pen-Pen at all - or even to notice him. ⋅ After Shinji...

Re: Wait so how did Asuka die in EoE?

If one of the Spears would have hit the plug they would at least imply that briefly by a jet of LCL or Eva-blood or so. Plus, when did ever any mechanic or failsafe work with the Evas. A lot of the show might have been thought through, but it's still anime and logic is the least aspect in something...

Re: Some questions regarding the nature of Rei's soul

The only reason the cloning thing makes more sense to me is that you'd expect a clone to be made in a petri dish, essentially, which would explain its nascent state at the time of the salvage. I have a harder time understanding why that would be the product of the salvage itself, because it's so fa...

What happens to the Nerv HQ during the Third Impact?

In the End of Evangelion, the Black Moon ascended into the upper atmosphere. We can see from the Nerv HQ main screen that there is a video feed from a very high altitude. Since the GeoFront is built on the surface of the Black Moon, does it mean that the HQ rode along with the Black Moon and the fee...

Re: What if the lance didn't work out as intended in ep 22?

Did the Spear travel purely under the force of Eva-00's throw or did it accelerate itself? Gravitational force is conservative. Regardless of source, the energy needed to reach a given distance is the same. Although gravitional potential energy will be a better estimate than kinetic energy. It's po...

Re: What if the lance didn't work out as intended in ep 22?

They could try Operation Yashima II. Since the lance hits the Moon in one shot, for a back of the envelope calculation, we can assume that the lance reached escape velocity, 11.18 km/s. Assuming the lance has a mass of 1000 t, the kinetic energy Unit 00 needs to transfer is about 62.5 TJ. The electr...

Re: Speculation on Jet Alone

Effectively unlimited endurance is a valuable thing, if combined with a way to neutralize AT fields. (Replica Lances, perhaps?) It also seems likely, at least to me, that JA was considerably cheaper than an Eva to build and operate, didn't depend on the ugliness of child pilots, and quite possibly ...

Re: Yui-Lilith Soul Gestalt, 'Rei'; and Eva-01's Souls

One issue with the theory is that during the battle against Bardiel, Unit 01 is controlled by the dummy system . Even though a clone of Rei is needed for the dummy plug, we learned from Ritsuko that all non-prime clones are soulless. Although there is the possibility that there is yet another piece ...

Re: Speculation on Jet Alone

Nerv has funding problems as the later episodes and EoE have shown: the base security can barely response to a terrorist attack; the second command center was rushed to finish; Evas have to wait in line to be repaired. Therefore, Gendo probably would not even tolerate the idea of a competitor no mat...

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

It's probably Shinji's sensible side that pushes her to seek comfort by sleeping by his side after her perceived failure in the falling angel mission instead of playing videogames or her doll, and that is the moment when she truly accepts him as someone on her level, someone that matters in her lif...

There is a parachute at the end of Q, it's the olive drab colored cloth on the right side of the screen So there it is! I though that was some soil raised up by the plug.

you can see something similar to this happen when one of the evas eject there umbicle , and it falls to the ground , but not before activating its thrusters for a brief amount of time close to the ground, so it can make a "soft" landing as to not cause further damage Yes, Soyuz style retr...

How does the entry plug land after ejection?

In Eva, whether the entry plug ejection system functions or not is largely determined by the plot. In NGE, the entry plug has been ejected three times, two of which are "on camera". ⋅  Rei ejected from Unit-00 during the activation test. (Ep. 05) ⋅  Toji partially eject...

Re: Changes in Eva Designs between Series and Movies (and your opinions on them!)

Unit 02 and Unit 08 were refitted with new, wider, triangular knee pads like ones on Unit 13. Mark 09 is the only Eva with old style knee pads in 3.0. I wonder if there is an in-universe explanation to that.

Re: Wait so how did Asuka die in EoE?

There was a part that a Mass Produced Eva casually dropped Unit 02's torso before joining the rests during flight. We can only see Unit 02's sternum, ribs, and some lumbar vertebrae. It is unclear if the core and the entry plug were still present. Suppose Unit 02's core is in front of the solar plex...
