Re: Do You Think Rei Was Un-Tanged Shortly After "Kimochi Warui"?

I have my doubts if she did really ended up as a spiritual godly being, I mean, being a God often seems pleasant, but EVA doesn't play it as a good thing... Issue of whether or not that's true aside, something being good or bad has no bearing on its veracity. The union of Adam and Lilith created a ...

Re: Nerv Nevada, S2 Engine Installation, Unit-04 Sabotaged?

At the risk of adding fuel to a wildfire, my twisted brain recently noted that Unit-04 has a very similar colour scheme (based on official merchandise) to the Mass Production Evas, whose numbers begin at 05 (ie the one immediately after 04). Now that may just have to do with the fact white is a colo...

Re: Lilith and the MP Evas' "Fusion"

Ah, so Unit-01 is self-actualised enough to retain its own form, but the ME Evas are not, and so they're easily swallowed by Lilith's Ego Boundary. That does make sense, though now I'm just confused as to how that was intended to play into their interaction with Unit-01. It's a bit frustrating becau...

Re: Lilith and the MP Evas' "Fusion"

...how can they not have souls though? Ritsuko made pretty clear they need souls to actually function. Also given the whole "soul helps shape the body" deal not having souls should prevent them from changing shape like that. Of projecting AT Fields at all.

Lilith and the MP Evas' "Fusion"

One of the reasons End of Eva has a reputation for being a mind screw is the sheer amount of stuff that takes place without the mechanics behind it being made clear for the audience, and a lot of that centres around Lilith. Perhaps the most bizarre of these is the way the MP Evas begin to morph into...

Re: NGE2: First Ancestral Race and Seeds of Life

Thing is, none of the Angels are referred to as clones of Adam, while the Evas are. A clone has a specific definition, and that is a perfect genetic copy of an existing organism. There are, as best I can tell, 3 ways to reconcile this other than "Adam and Lilith had tons of unused genetic mater...

Re: NGE2: First Ancestral Race and Seeds of Life

I've wondered about the exact logic of putting Adam into stasis instead of something that would have actually made sense, like, well, giving one of the Seeds a chance to get off the planet. What's the point of wasting one of a mere seven Seeds for billions upon billions of years? What's the end gam...

Re: NGE2: First Ancestral Race and Seeds of Life

I think Reichu has the right answer by pointing out we only see Lilin reduced to LCL when an Anti-AT Field is involved. My guess is that it's the AATF causing the AT-Field to suddenly and violently collapse that's responsible for the phenomenon. Kind of like how glass can bear a lot of pressure if i...

Re: NGE2: First Ancestral Race and Seeds of Life

To be fair I don't think there was much of a window for that to happen. Adam got put into stasis when Lilith showed up, then it and the White Moon exploded right after waking up. The Spear spent 15 years lost in the sea, a couple months in Nerv's basement, then got chucked to the moon before Kaworu...

Re: Who else...

Isn't "Rebuild" the name of the project as a whole? I remember seeing pictures of the staff with a "Rebuild" t-shirt. My understanding is that Rebuild does refer to the project, but only became the name for it because of fandom adoption. Prior to that it was just a descriptor. @...

Re: Evangelion Soundtrack Is So Good?!?!?!

Sagisu just makes the music. For both Eva and Shin Godzilla, Anno's the one who decides what will show up. In NGE, there were plenty of original cues that went unused, whereas both of the times Anno requested additional music, we ended up with a lot of extra variants, some of which we know he speci...

Re: Who else...

Kinda hilarious you'd post this now given I just made this thread. #shamelessselfpromotion

All in all I like the Magitech approach Evangelion took with the stuff, even preferring it over the character psychology in some ways. Rebuild seems to lean more heavily on mysticism though.

Re: Favorite crazy Evangelion theories

The only way I could see someone writing that is if they say Shinji is having mental episodes and drawing it out on paper in the presence of his friends Rei (Could be his sister depending on your view point) Asuka, Kaworu, Toji, Hikari and Kensuke and there all playing out the roles to help him get...

Re: NGE2: First Ancestral Race and Seeds of Life

So, if I've understood correctly, the solution the Third Seed proposes to Adam and Lilith being unable to coexist is "why don't you just go set up shop on another planet". That's... actually a pretty reasonable idea that I'm surprised was never presented as an option before. Also, the whol...

Re: Favorite crazy Evangelion theories

Somebody suggested to me the bizarre theory that all the scenes with the Evas and Angels are metaphors in-universe and don't actually happen; they're just a dramatized version of Shinji's own mental struggles. This apparently also extends to both versions of Instrumentality. Said theory came from th...

Hmm; so Reichu reckons Eva-01 and Eva-13 are now "complementary"... And Kaworu went from being the first to the thirteenth angel... Is there a pattern forming here, I wonder? Consider for a moment the Japanese word used for the Angels translates as "Apostles", and in Rebuild the...

Re: What do you think Shinji would enjoy learning to cook?

All I can picture when I see Shinji in the kitchen is him saying "I mustn't burn the soup" over and over again ad nausiem. Thing is, I don't think Shinji WOULD enjoy cooking, or at least he'd never admit to it. We're talking about a kid who can't even take a compliment about his cello skil...
