That's like asking if this thread's title is a Beatles reference, except going way more generic.

Re: From Your Lips to the Author's Ears: Story Ideas

You see, I thought that Shinji and Asuka/Rei (didn't know which) would have to team up together in order to stop 3I. And that 3I would be caused by some sort of, cosmic intercourse. But, in doing so, they would be so in sync with each other, that they would accidentally engage in their own cosmic i...

Re: Pen Pen's Sexuality

Hmm... "Spheniscan" doesn't sound quite right to me. Would probably be "spheniscid" (if referring to the Spheniscidae) or "sphenisciform" (if referring to Sphenisciformes). Though always delighted to see ornithology getting any attention. :tongue: (I'm still trying to t...

Re: From Your Lips to the Author's Ears: Story Ideas

There's the hint of some bad blood between them -- look at the way Asuka squints at Misato when she says, "Isn't that right, Captain Katsuragi?" Not enough to get in the way of what needs to be done in the present, but something emotionally unresolved regardless.

Shinko and Kaworu-chan have rather boyish figures. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Re: Analyses and Comments on Death + Rebirth

i13 : I have no idea what the wiki says about the sun motif -- not something I ever got around to exploring, maybe because it felt too tenuous to be worth the effort. Maybe I just haven't come upon the proper approach yet. Shinji is Anno's main viewpoint character, making his dubious reaction to Ka...

Re: Evangelion Pic Thread 10: The Society for the Appreciation Of The Premium Girl (and her friends)

It was a One-Hit KO, despite Unit-01 being in god-mode. How OP is Mark.06, eh? It's the Spear that's overpowered. We never get any true indication of Mark.06's power, though getting completely digested by an Angel from the inside isn't terribly inspiring. Pity such a cool-looking getup was wasted o...

Re: Analyses and Comments on Death + Rebirth

Sachi : I've been reticent about a lot because many of my ideas were blurted out in semi-deranged form when I had my first hypomanic episode way back. That caused backlash and planted certain expectations in everyone's minds, so the natural way for me to act afterward is with trepidation and se...

Re: The Red Soil and Rei's Monologue

Both of the uses brought up are entirely relevant and help bring context to the color symbolism. More than topical enough. Since OP references NGE: EoE uses red to represent death and the spirit world, while blue is used to represent life and the physical world. Could also be seen as fantasy vs. rea...

Re: First official image of "New Unit 2"

I would find this likely if not for them purposefully showing 02's remains at the end of Q. It would have been perfectly logical for 02 to have vaporized more or less completely. Only reason to defy this is if they're going to salvage the scraps.

Re: First official image of "New Unit 2"

Eva-01 never forcibly ejects the dummy plug in the original, so that act makes up for lack of moving hand in its way. Shielding Shinji is also, recall, a hint about the Eva's true nature. With episode 16's train and episode 20's flashbacks condensed into the post-berserk "Ayanami" scene, c...

Re: First official image of "New Unit 2"

I really hope Eva-08 doesn't get cannibalized for parts. It was barely damaged at the end of 3.0, and it would be WAY easier to get 08 up and running again than to rip 08 apart to get 02 up and running again. 08 is a really cute unit (reminds me of a cockatoo) and a nice addition to the line-up. I w...

Re: Theory: How Rei/Lilith escapes Crucifixion. Plus, Kaworu's Plan.

I feel like you're creating a problem where none needs to exist. The Seeds and Spears were paired with each other from the start. The latter were designed to work on the former as they were created, no modifications required. This can be seen with Adam, who was backstabbed by her own Spear long befo...
