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...

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

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: [Game] Neon Genesis Evangelion 2: Another Cases

Welcome back, Kira! Hope to see more of you. ^_^ I've gotten pretty lazy over the months; I could use the friendly rivalry ("""rivalry""" :wink: ) to help spur me on. Latest update looks good, but quick question about シール. I've been wondering what exactly this refers to...

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...

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

Sammael: The CI provides additional context for the stuff about artificial souls that's consistent with what's in the show. Look over the entries again (the early, Eva-related ones especially) if it's been a while. BlueBasilisk: I got the idea for the NTE Evas from a combination of that entry, the ...

Re: Eva 2.XX Storyboards vs. Final

Miyamura provided the sounds for Eva-03, and the coloration if the arms that grow from the Eva recall Asuka. I assume these choices were made because Asuka's psyche is active and imvolved on some level. Her being able to feel what was happening seems likely to me.

Re: Bakelite in the EVA pens

What ABOUT the "overall layout" makes "making sense of the layout" impossible? From the ridiculously useless map of a single floor(?!) in episode 1, the place has a hexagonal cross-section with the Central Shaft in the middle. After that, it's mostly figuring out what the various...

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

Eva2 addresses the ostensible function of the CEs: A copy of a personality is made in the dummy plug, but a soul cannot be copied. Why can't it be done, or how would it be done? As far as the technology branches of Seele and Nerv are concerned, it is a theme of research integral to seeking out the P...

In bringing up the Chamber of Guf stuff, I was merely trying to puzzle out why Ritsuko mentioned its empty state as part of her explanation. シンジ(OFF)「人、人間なんですか?」 リツコ(OFF)「そう、人間なのよ。本来魂のないエヴァには、人の魂が宿らせてあるもの」 リツコ(OFF)「みんなサルベージされたものなの」 リツコ(OFF)「魂の入った容れ物はレイ、一人だけなの」 リツコ(OFF)「あの娘にしか魂は生まれなかったのよ」 リツコ(OFF)「ガフ...

Re: The Tree of Life Significance

The Tree of Life as used in NGE is a link between the spiritual and physical realms (rooted in Heaven, branching toward Earth), and consequently provides a path by which humanity can return to a divine state of being. This Kabbalistic idea is cross-referenced with (a liberal interpretation of) the C...

Re: Lilith and her long sleep

Corrected my typo. -o-; Regarding Rei not being salvaged: the idea makes sense in the context of that mission of we assume that Lilith's soul being siphoned out instead of Yui was NOT an unintended consequence, but instead a deliberate move on Lilith's end as part of some Long Con. Yui's soul being ...

Re: Lilith and her long sleep

My own best (lame) guess is that Lilith basically considers her job done, and if she can help her children's intellectual development by letting them play with her, then that's just fine. Alternatively, Eva-01 and Rei's creation were things that Lilith wanted to happen, for whatever reason. Eva2 sti...
