Interesting Eva-related animated short

I came across this vid on tokyotosho, it's about three girls who go to the same school in Tokyo 3 as Shinji, Rei, Asuka, etc. They're in a band, but they have to break up because one girl's family is moving away from Tokyo 3 for the sort of reason you'd expect, namely Angels stomping...

Can't cite the source right off hand, but I seem to recall that these were supposed to be "therapeutic" drawings by children who had survived violent or otherwise traumatic situations.

There are references to "all souls" becoming one, so I don't take the idea that it's just the main cast very seriously. Also, Gendo mentions that everyone is returning to "the Mother that was lost" i.e. Lilith; so I don't see how one could argue that Rei isn't spe...

It is quite common in NGE for characters to start spouting off about matters regarding which it hasn't been adequately established that they should reasonably expected to have knowledge of, even if brings about apparent plot holes; this is just the writers being a little bit lazy in how they go ...

In addition, I have to ask, where does the commentary thing about the sexual advances come from in the first place? The NewType Filmbook of ep23 'Checkpoint' for this scene says (sorry, don't have the exact quote handy) something like "it seems that Misato was offering her ...

Keep in mind that we're only seeing a few minutes of time, at just one spot in the whole world, there at the end. Over time, and/or in other places, people could be coming back in droves. It's an 'open ended' ending; maybe some people come back, maybe everyone comes back (eventua...

In the OP of Noir, Mireille, who is played by Misato's seiyuu, Kotono Mitsuishi,

Was this intended as an in-joke reference to the popular, but erroneous, fan theory that Misato shot Kaji?

With his last words “Forgive me… Shinji,” Gendou is crushed by the jaws of Eva–01. Was this the retribution toward a man who kept running from the world, or was it also his salvation…?

Doubtful. Rei appeared as herself (to the audience at least) when she showed up for Ritsuko and Misato's deaths. Taking on the form of a desired person (or whatever -- c.f. Kiel) only happens when she's breaking down the defenses of a living person to turn them into Tang. Ag...

Re: Was Kaji misinformed, or...?

Kaji brought Adam to Gendo. Kaji told Misato that Lilith was Adam. Was he seriously confused, deliberately misinforming Misato, or what? He most likely was passing on disinformation he either got from Gendo or dug up on his own. I think that only SEELE and Gendo, Fuyutsuki, and Ritsuko actually wou...

That sounds like a justification to me, not an argument. Not even sure what that means, but I consider it a case somewhat analogous to the bit in the CI where they point out that Lilith crashed close to Antartica (even tho Antartica didn't even exist 4+ billion years ago), with the impl...
