Because Unit 01 is explicitly mentioned to not be composed of the same material as humans.

Re: Would Eating An Angel Be Considered Cannibalism?

I'm fairly certain if you ate angelic matter. You'd die. Horribly. Yeah. Didnt Ritsuko say in one of the first few episodes that Evas and humans are almost the same in their genetical structure, but are composed of very different material? (which naturally goes for angels as well, clones of Adam an...

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

But I think in Asuka's case, it could be possible she rejected it because she doesn't want to be around other people and have them see into her mind; remember she doesn't want to share with people, be in the same place as them, use the same stuff they used (her rant in ep. 22), and more importantly...

Re: Would Eating An Angel Be Considered Cannibalism?

Question 1: Probably

Quation 2: Probably not, since Evas and angels are not LCL-based, unlike humans

Re: [Theory] Why did Anno and NGE's other creators choose to define Angels as Human?

I don't want to get too crazy with color theory, but I think they chose those specific colors for a clear reason. Blue typically denotes coldness, pure logic, machine-like, while red is usually associated with emotion, passion, and humanity in general given our red blood. EVA-01 going pattern red a...

Re: Theory: AAA WUNDER is the weaponised eleventh angel

That true I am hoping that we might get some flash backs in the last movie, because I think Mari, Asuka and possibly Rei (Before she was exsposed as a clone) were fighting angels while Shinji was gone as I've heard some fan art that points to Asuka eye being a result of the mass eva series while ot...

Re: Introduction, Toxicity of AsuShin and other things

If the whole relationship between Shinji and Asuka is toxic and hopeless, then why is it that Anno put them together in the first place? Especially towards the end? It's not like the shipping thing was his idea to begin with, nor was it his intention to go with it. I think it's certain that Shinji ...

Re: Theory: AAA WUNDER is the weaponised eleventh angel

I agree that its a weaponized angel but I don't think its the eleventh angel, I think it's Gaghiel because the size is about the same and the white areas look like ribs and bones and they said with the third angel in 2.0 that you can strip an angel down to its bones and it can still be alive so may...

Re: Theory: AAA WUNDER is the weaponised eleventh angel

It's not a core, but this fleshy womb-like thing -- effectively identical to what Eva-13 was pulled out of at Nerv HQ. The new films aren't very subtle when it comes to cores. Anything that is one or is meant to be identified with one has that animated glowy-flowy red texture used on it. Im not sur...

Re: [Theory] Why did Anno and NGE's other creators choose to define Angels as Human?

A major theme of Evangelion is the difficulty we have in understanding others. And the Angels are the ultimate manifestation of that. We don’t understand them at all, not even their biology. We don’t even know that they’re Human until EoE. Really? Was it all the way until EoE until someone pointed ...

Re: Was it ever explained why the Angels waited 15 years to start attacking?

Tying in another interesting theory I heard a while ago: Maybe the angels (except for Tabris, but Tabris is an exception to everything) only attack Evas because they sense their AT field and, by the nature of it can tell that they are different and a threat. Best examples are Sandalphon, who "a...

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: Theory: AAA WUNDER is the weaponised eleventh angel

I could argue that the bridge of the Wunder is the core, as its core-like shape was revealed int he circular camera motion establishing it in 3.0. I still think it might be an old core of some kind, but it being the core of an angel isn't really as likely as I thought it would be. Well, the round t...

Re: Theory: AAA WUNDER is the weaponised eleventh angel

When Kaworu "falls" to become the 13th Angel, Mari says, "A thirteenth? Even though the twelfth should have been the last?" The 12th being the last Angel (prior to Gendo's meddlings) rather strongly implies that the 11th met a familiar fate: it was killed, it exploded into blood...

Re: Theory: AAA WUNDER is the weaponised eleventh angel

That still doesn't address the "vessel of Adam" bit. We're explicitly told Mark 06 and Unit 13 are Adams that were refitted into Evangelions, making up two of the four possible Adams. Unit-01 is heavily implied to be the third. However, Mark 09 is uniquely referred to as a "vessel of...

How do you address Mark.09 being referred to as a "vessel of Adam", and does this affect your interpretation of the Wunder? My original post consists of a lot of notes I wrote while on the bus copypasted together... I guess there was a part that slipped through my radar. There was suppose...
