Maybe it's gonna be the 20th or 2nd of February?

Japan writes dates in YYYY/MM/DD format, so maybe 2020/02/02, which would make it the same both backwards and forwards. (20200202)

Re: Why was Shinji strangling Asuka at the end of EoE?

Technically, Sachiel's ATF was neutralized earlier, when Eva-01 did her Goatse impression. I know you say "destroyed", but what the caress accomplishes is more akin to ATF neutralization than destruction, so comparisons must be made accordingly. When Eva-01 is straddling somebody, she's do...

I would definitely watch it at least once, for the unique footage (some of it providing information and context available nowhere else) and for the thematic juxtapositions that Masayuki chooses to make.

Re: Proper psychology term for A.T Field?

You're probably looking for something like "ego boundary" or "boundary of self". NGE itself uses this term to refer to the psychological dynamics of the pilots before it's revealed that Lilin also possess A.T. Fields. Real life psychology seems to have a preexisting conversation ...

Re: AAA WUNDER was built by the FAR?!

The FAR and the Seeds cannot be assumed to exist in the new movies. It's rubbish speculation that doesn't belong in the wiki. Or really anywhere, for that matter. Killing it. ( There IS a joke in the Eva2 game where something implied to be the Nautilus has been found and gets attributed to the FAR, ...

Re: Dreams about Evangelion...

Just woke up from one of these. So in the dream, I was on a train or something, and I had access to these books full of insane concept art for the movies. Most of it seemed like Mahiro Maeda's, but there could have been some Okama in there too. They had notes written all over them, and for some reas...

Re: [Game] Neon Genesis Evangelion 2: Another Cases

(Cross-post, for whoever is liable to look here and not in Discussion.) To make some of the valuable lore from the game more widely available until such point as the patch is finished, I've subtitled the key content from Rei and Kaworu's PSP scenarios. (The videos themselves are rather poor quality,...

Re: NGE2: First Ancestral Race and Seeds of Life

Subtitled videos that include the key content from Rei and Kaworu's PSP scenarios are now available. Much of Kaworu's scenario has been previously translated, but this is more complete and freshly polished. I've mentioned some of the content from Rei's before, but as far as I know this is the first ...

Re: NGE as a metaphor for Revelation

hence the series "New Era/Beginning" wink wink. For whatever it's worth: the shinseiki (新世紀) in the title is a play on the Japanese title for Genesis, Souseiki (創世記) which is literally "original century" or "first era". (This explains the "Neon Genesis" in th...

Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media

The tweets reference 打ち入り (uchi-iri), which is an anime industry term for an informal social gathering held to mark the beginning of voice recording work. (Props to this page for explaining it.) The latter is called "afureco" ("after-recording"), and is the same word used in Japa...

Re: Post-3I Yui: Monument or Mother? Mk. II [Split]

A Seed of Life is going to be proof of her creators' existence, so the thread title has " Merely a monument" implied. The traditional argument is that Yui is just going to float in space forever and not do anything with her inherited powers. The previous iteration of the thread, which I li...

Re: Why must Asuka be "the best" pilot?

Asuka's mother Kyoko used herself as a guinea pig in an experiment with Eva-02. She survived, but at the cost of part of her soul -- the part associated with motherhood. Kyoko became severely mentally ill as a result, and one way in which her loss manifested was that she could no longer recognize wh...

Alright, done. Have at it!

Here's a previous iteration of the topic (also a split, funny enough) that's worth skimming through, at least at the beginning. Like many threads, it veers into something totally different as it goes on.

Re: If Lilith was born from the Black Moon, why is Rei always shown with the White Moon?

Lilith wasn't "born" from the Black Moon; it's the vessel she used to get to Earth. Rei is associated with Earth's Moon, as in the satellite, because of First Impact. The Black Moon collided with Earth, and debris from the Black Moon's rocky outer shell and the Earth was ejected into orbit...

Re: Favorite crazy Evangelion theories

Other people's objections feel wrong, or you agree with them about the souls thing? If one wants to avoid the idea that Lilin souls were "sorted" in any way (with those who desired evolution, like Gendo and Fuyutsuki, going with Yui), Adam solves the issue rather neatly. The Angels would h...

Re: Post Ep. 21, Misato deliberately avoided facing Shinji and Asuka

I think she was just being honest before she died; like trying to tell Shinji I care about you in her honest/unhealthy way. I guess the difference is the connotation. You make it sound it a fetish or something. I think it's definitely part of the Freudian psychosexual complex that Misato started to...
