For what it's worth, this site states a February 18th release date as well, and has since sometime in the past two weeks (I dismissed it the first time I saw it as "What the hell do they know?" until I saw the post here). http://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/movies/Evangelion-3-...

How do you feel about Asuka's treatment in Q?

I remember reading that a big point of disappointment in 2.0 was that Asuka's screen time was very limited, and some even felt that her character development was rather shallow. In retrospect, do Asuka fans (or for that matter, Asuka's detractors) feel that Anno's favorite charac...

I think what Ritsuko types when she takes Maya is a pretty obvious hint. Yes, it makes "I need you" seem obvious in hindsight, but without it it's not obvious at all; he could have said virtually anything. But if you disagree where's the hidden hint that suggests Gendo said what y...

It's not "fuss" per se, I was just bringing the point up for discussion based on Shin-seiki's comments that it might be Anno trying to tell us something by showing Rei in each instance other than Asuka. What is actually determined from that is up to the brilliant minds here. :)

My main issue with the "I Need You" verdict is it just seems too obvious an answer for Ritsuko's VA, Yuriko Yamaguchi, to miss. As has already been noted in this thread, the Red Cross Book says: Ritsuko fades away with her final word, "Liar." But what was this "Liar"...

Chuckman I think your views on how Rei transcends time and such are actually quite legit, and line up with the generally accepted notion (which OMF linked via wiki entry). The point I was originally trying to make is WHY we are privy to Misato and Ritsuko's vision of Rei before they die...

When Rei collects souls, she's not actually killing anyone; she's liberating them. Thus, we see Rei gathering some souls twice- when she actually collects them (on death) and at the point where the collection begins in the dimension of linear time the cast occupies. I think it's...

Sorry to bump an old thread, but in my perpetual lurking, I didn't realize there were responses to something I had wrote! Neither Misato nor Ritsuko were tanged when they were visited by Rei's. Misato stuck around long enough to be blown into 2 bits and Ritsuko's corpse was floating arou...

I have not read this entire thread, so I don't know if she's been brought up before, but Deborah Ann Woll, from True Blood fame would be INSPIRED casting for Asuka.

You're implying that a group comprised entirely of female Evas will ... breed? [/Henry Wu] (Sorry, I had to do that.) Sorry, I must have been unclear. No, I was implying exactly the opposite. What I should have said is that with BOTH sets of reproductive organs, they could presumably re...

Despite what reproductive organs EVAs were naturally "born" with after the the initial cloning process of Adam, or in 01's case, Lilith, I highly doubt the the the techies at NERV are going to leave them intact. With reproductive organs, they could presumably and easily reproduce. Whic...

Any significance that Asuka doesn't see Rei before she dies?

I was searching for an existing thread that explained this to me, and happened upon the "Does Asuka die?" thread from the ANF forums. We know that Rei appeared to character's who die shortly before 3I begins (i.e. Misato and Ritsuko) as a means of connecting them to the process...

This question keeps coming back to me about the final scene. Maybe I can get some insight. If Asuka is killed before Instrumentality begins, how is she able to come back? Does that mean other presumably dead characters in the Eva universe might find themselves on that beach (such as Kaji?) I...

I don't want to veer off-topic too much, but earlier in this thread (pages 3-5) there was a mini-discussion on how Pre-Instrumentality was an active discussion between the minds of Shinji, Asuka, Rei, and Misato; i.e. its really them. Could someone very quickly refer me to the related th...

Can't Shinji throw a tantrum for killing anyone? We already know of his unwillingness to kill, but he ends up killing a fellow pilot, some necessary in the killing of Angels and salvation of mankind (at least from what he knows about his "mission," that is). Asuka is "some...

Nice reading, OMF! :) However, question: for your theory that Yui is presenting images to of people in Shinji's life. Don't you think the particular order in which these images is displayed sparks a hint of importance? And if in fact, they were images Yui had seen through Shinji's su...
