Re: Fascinating Interview on GAINAX

So Gunbuster 3 is supposed to tie 1 and 2 together? I thought that was the whole point of Diebuster's ending? :???:

I am glad Sadamoto clarified that the Mari bonus chapter was just an extra fanservice thing for the manga, at least!

Re: Was Seele Trying to Redo Genesis in 3.0?

Nice post! I know some traditions do link Lilith with the serpent. It's therefore somewhat fitting that the 12th Angel emerges from inside her corpse. I did a bit more thinking about this today and some interesting ideas came to me. Part of my puzzlement with Seele's attitude toward the Fruit of Kno...

Re: Asuka's plugsuit

The ribbed plugsuits Mari, Kaworu and Shinji wear were the next gen models introduced in 2.0 before Wille and Nerv split. Why is the 05 still there, though? I suppose a number of these suits could have been synthesized while Mari was still at Bethany Base, and, assuming plugsuits don't have a highly...

Re: Asuka's plugsuit

It's also curious that Mari is still using the old Unit 05 plugsuit during Operation US. Did they not issue her a new one when she was assigned to Unit 08? Surely it's not the same one she was using at the end of 2.0. I got the impression that Gendo wanted Wille to take Eva-01 back from orbit, he ne...

Re: Was Seele Trying to Redo Genesis in 3.0?

Thanks! I'm not at all well-read when it comes to theology or biblical matters and I debated for a couple hours whether to bring it up. I was looking into that particular chapter to see how much Kaworu could be compared to the snake and thought that the material seemed awfully familiar. :lol:

Was Seele Trying to Redo Genesis in 3.0?

Had this idea while drafting a post for the Eva subreddit today and need to get it out of my head. I noticed there are a lot of similarities between Genesis chapter 3 with the story of the fall and 3.0's plot structure. You have the obvious with Seele proudly displaying the serpent and the apple in ...

The DSS choker monitors and transmits biometric data. Mari almost certainly knew when it notified her of a possible 13th Angel manifesting.

Re: Impact trigger disrepancy

Have people speak to him, I can see Sakura/Mari doing that if no one else. Have him apologize for what he has done and also express a desire to make amends for it. Have him maybe contribute in small ways to make himself useful, have him slowly regain trust and regularly communicate with him. He mig...

Well they could level the place and kill the mastermind and his man servant, I mean, they are literally right above the hole where NERV HQ is... seems like a missed opportunity, or a colossal fuck up on Misato's part.

Re: Impact trigger disrepancy

Plus Nerv was on the business end of some military action in the past. Wille knows Seele and Gendo are the true culprits and Misato is hellbent to destroy them. Kaworu probably was being fed a line of bullshit and didn't realize it until it was too late. Again, what benefit does he get from lying to...

Re: Impact trigger disrepancy

You're quite right. Some of the things he says do seem to be true. His description of what the Human Instrumentality Project is supposed to do jives with everything Seele and Gendo have said about it, although he then leads Shinji to the conclusion that it's Gendo's doing instead of Seele's own pet ...

Re: Impact trigger disrepancy

He didn't want Gendo's particular version of Fourth Impact to happen, which is what we got since he sabotaged the spears. They way things were going, given the knowledge that Kaworu is Seele's Child, is guilt-tripping Shinji, and is also promising him a vague "happiness", it appears that ...

Re: Impact trigger disrepancy

Even the idea that Third Impact killed billions is something people just ran with on their own. When Shinji asks Kaworu what happened to the people in the city, Kaworu doesn't respond. He just goes on about the nature of Instrumentality (or so he claims). The actual scope and death toll of 3I is tot...

Re: Who'se really in charge of Wille

And all of their ships and equipment appear to be well-maintained and up to date, though more spartan and less flashy than old Nerv was. The one exception is Asuka's first taped up plugsuit and we don't know the story behind that yet. I wonder how long Wille's fleet has existed in its current state?...

I got promoted to a new, higher paying position after a couple years of trying. It's still frustrating in its own ways but I'm looking at it as a stepping stone to new job skills and better things. ^_^
