Or you could say that as they don't say how long 3I lasted, it could very well have been 2016 by the time Shinji reembodied.

I should also have pointed out that the movie is called HE END of Evangelion for a reason: the story is over when the movie ends. Episode 26 therefore can't come after the movie is over.

Hi, Yes. The EoE story is Shinji shaken up & feeling betrayed by everyone, wanting to wipe out everyone so he is safe. But it is just one reality that he can create, even as the alternate utopian one shown in TV26 is another. You are mis-interpreting the "This is one of many possible world...

Hi, I fit EoE between TV 25 & 26. Misato tells Shinji (paraphrased) "this is the reality you made" referring to an everyone-dies reality metaphored bt the smashing spotlights. That could refer to all EoE from after 24 ended. EoE certainly seems like armageddon and the Asuka sc...

Uh.... that's not correct; Shinji rejects instrumentallity in both endings. when dose he reject in the tv ending? It's made clear from the beginning that he hates it: "If there's no difference between me and everyone else, I don't exist!" The alternate reality represents S...

I find the series ending much more depressing than the movie's version of the end. You see in the series ending Shinji just conforms on just about every level possible socially, spiritually even physically. In fact there is no difference between you and the other, no differences at all just one...

( The TREES! Remember the TREES! ) I think the idea of showing the trees as Rei's head tumbles towards the Earth is that they came back first. To a non-thinking life form, the will to survive would be its genetic programming to grow and propagate. In other words, plants and trees wouldn...

Isn't this sort of denying the element of free will on Asuka's part? Goes against everything Rei and Yui told us, I would say. Not necessarily, Asuka could have brought herself back unaided, but once she did so Rei could have controlled the where. In fact, I believe that this is Scott's...

My own opinion is that the toppled grave-marker is just a reference to the rejected ending, sort of an inside joke. Given that, I think that what happens is exactly what appears to happen: Asuka materializes directly next to Shinji.

The earth turned red, but the souls went into Rei. There were no souls in the LCL, so it would still be orange/yellow when the earth turned red. All of the human souls went into the Black Moon through Rei. Show me evidence that the Reis also collected all the plant and animal souls rather than lett...

Question #1 (which I love to ask): Why is LCL suddenly red? Question #2: If lower lifeforms come back automatically, more or less, why is the Earth still red before we see Yui in space? 1. Because it's now full of souls. 2. Because the LCL is still full of billions of human souls spille...

How is it possible for animals, especially plants, to determine if they come back or not? Trees don't have a conciousness, so how can they make the choice to come back or remain as a soul? See post #42 in Reichu's second link. You must have missed the part when the entire planet turned red....

And why would Rei control the where? I'm not sure I'm willing to buy any explanation for her appearance that doesn't take episode #01 into consideration, since they're clearly visually connected... Rei controled the where because Shinji said "I want to see them again". She...

7) And obviously, episodes 25 & 26. Worst ending in anime history? Yeah, its probably still up there in my mind. Actually it's one of the best. You just don't know it until you're seen EOE. I take it you haven't seen Sorcerer Hunters. Or the final episode of Mahoromatic . Or...

But wouldn't Rei's cereal be the better candidate for the (Lilith-shaped?) marshmallows? But that wouldn't be near as funny as "Toasted Rei Crisp", a reference to Rei II's demise. Giving Shinji the marshmallow cereal was supposed to be a lame joke about his spine. ...
