Re: Everything is Rockin'! [RML Thread 4]

Glad you're okay! Surgery is serious business. I hope the original ailment is eased by the correction.

Re: Favorite crazy Evangelion theories

The crosses don't represent souls. The little red dots do, and those expressly fell back to Earth. What the crosses represent is the Way to God, the desire for human transcendence, as voiced by Gendo in episode 21 while a shadow cross appeared ominously behind him. In EoE, the formation of these cro...

Re: You Wake Up In The Eva Verse

If you made a habit of drinking that LCL, I feel like getting sick would be the least of your problems... We see in the final scene that there's a dilapidated town close by. Looting for packaged and canned foods seems the simplest and most intuitive option. This is quickly venturing from the origina...

Re: Does Rei Ayanami have schizophrenia?

"Not human" isn't accurate and tells us nothing; the series itself is clear on her humanity. I think her problems can be mostly attributed to a combination of (A) being an ancient alien in the wrong body whose soul has been artificially fragmented, and (B) being intentionally raised in a m...

Re: Favorite crazy Evangelion theories

@ Mr. Tines : The movie not-so-subtly shows the souls of humanity escaping the Black Moon and spreading back across the Earth. There's no "ascending as stardust", not at "face value" or as anything else. (Has it still been over 10 years since you saw the movie?) @DarkBluePhoenix ...

Re: You Wake Up In The Eva Verse

Physical structures being intact doesn't offset the fact that the human machine that had kept everything moving was completely destroyed with 3I. What happens now? Things won't be back to the way they were for a long time, if ever. How do you live the way you did before unless all the utility worker...

Re: Lilith and Yui's Contact Experiment, and Related Subjects

Between Kyoko knowingly repeating an experiment that the previous subject lost her body undertaking, and Kyoko not getting fully absorbed, I would guess that Kyoko's motivation was to prove the procedure (as imagined by Gehirn, not Yui) could be done. I feel that her getting the "maternal part&...

Re: EOE as a comedy

I watched with someone once who somehow managed to find things to laugh at all the way through the Soryus' demise. He was completely silent once Third Impact began. I don't think the experience sat well with him and I imagine he forgot NGE as promptly as possible.

Re: End of Evangelion cover art interpretation

It's lolsymbolic (not "canon") for the obvious reason that the left side of Lilith's split head is probably not going to be changing positions from what we saw at the end of the film

Re: Current view of the Rebuild series and last movie expectations

Shinji already is reliving his life until he solves his problems. The movies embrace the concept of recurrence within individual lives, and also how repetition is passed from one generation to the next. Kaworu's lines are unexplained, but so is most of the movies' world. Even the main character has ...

Re: Current view of the Rebuild series and last movie expectations

@Guy Nacks : IMO, doing something like that would not only not advance the story or character developments in any way, it would actively defy the groundwork that's been set so far. The story has been built up with a view toward anti-escapism, and how the choice is really between choosing reality or...

I'm not really satisfied with my previous post, so here's some additional info. The actual quote from episode 13: Misato: Hey, tell me a little about the Magi. RITSUKO (OFF): It's a long story. And not a very interesting one, at that. Do you know about personality transplant OS? Misato: Yes, it's a ...

Re: The Tree of Life Significance

the Tree of Life is really only used explicitly as a symbolic reference to Christianity and God without anything much more specific than that I wouldn't consider the ToL to be a reference to "Christianity" per se, aside from the way in which the show incorporates the Way to God into the m...
