I think it's more of a author's personality traits are spread through multiple characters kind of thing. It's pretty clear in the proposal that Shinji would be the focal character of the series. Who would force characters on Anno? It was his studio and his show.

He said that in the on-air version of 24 too.

In the proposal it describes the show as being the story of Tokyo-3. We cover people moving in to the city; the fortress fighting; and the destruction of the city. This is all brought down to a personal level with the story of Shinji. I wouldn't read too much beyond Anno likes cities a lot.

I had some old notes about this scene and I think it's like this (using your chart above): 23 OA --> on-air 23 DCa --> is the original "video format" episode released on laserdisc and the one [hopefully] in the blu-ray boxset 23 DC renewal --> is in the movie "Death" ...

I am guessing it just wasn't subtitled for whatever reason.

Just watched the subtitled version in Los Angeles (Pasadena). Didn't see any merch available. People were very quiet and attentive in that theater. Pretty full house. Applause at the end. Enjoyed it quite a bit and I like the feeling evoked by seeing it on the big screen, especially the ...

When the Jo-Ha-Kyu structure was announced back in 2006 the movies were all supposed to be done by 2008 with 3.0 and Final being a single release. The original trailer had 4 labels: "序-破-急-?" That's probably why it's not 急Kyu but Q Kyu. 急 and Q a...

Someone who refers to Gendo as "Gendo-kun" has definitely got my attention! I don't know if that theory has been raised before, but could it be that Mari is actually the woman with glasses we saw on the photography of Yui holding Shinji? I think using "Gendo-kun" points to a...

Did you read the complete records collection interviews? Anno is totally making up Rebuild as he goes along. Not the impression I got from his interview. He was making up Nadia as he went along, then Evangelion, and he even went into shooting the ending of Shiki-Jitsu before finishing the script. I...

There is no import duty for blu-rays from Japan to the US.

I once ordered over $500 of stuff from Japan and had to fill out a form describing everything in the box before I got it...but there wasn't any fee for that.

Was Mark 06 ever seen to be the same size as other Evas? I don't think we see it side-by-side with another Eva, even after it comes out of its petrified state.

Couldn't the moon seen be the Geofront moon? I recall the 2nd impact flashback in 2.0 showed a moon-like object rising. It would make sense that the same thing could happen here.

Why are all these ships sitting in frozen water before they launch? It looks like they've been sitting around there for quite awhile, with cables going from ship to ship.
