(Rei doesn’t need to have the Curse of Eva in order to maintain age appearance because she’s a clone, and even if Rei Q matured naturally by growing up during the 14-year gap, she’d still be about 14 years old.) I think Rei being swallowed by the 10th Angel and encapsulated into its core, a...

There are several comments to make about the relevance of the music player. The obvious starting point would be its significance in the original NGE series. 1. In NGE, the music player represents Shinji's withdrawing within himself. The tracks loop, and he keeps listening to the entire thing ove...

What is interesting in this comparison, is that the number 1 / Unit-01 is a special case both in the Fibonacci sequence and in Evangelion. In the Fibonacci sequence, the number 1 occurs twice. In Rebuild of Evangelion, Unit-01 is piloted not just by the human pilot Shinji: - In Rebuild 1.0, during t...

Chuckman raises a good point though : the people in the WILLE fleet can't be the only human left, there must be settlements left around the world, big ones even to supply the Wunder fleet with all their part for the AAA Wunder, anti-AT field rail-gun ammo, equipment for the Evas... and I'm ...

Even if she couldn't kill Shinji, she still put a bomb collar on him an explicitly prohibited him to pilot an Eva ever again because he might still be an Impact Trigger (Mark.09 coming for Shinji was the confirmation), so do you think that she would take the risk of having Asuka pilotin...

^ Wait, you mean that Asuka has an interdimensional portal in place of her eye!? :cringe: No offense, but that look completely far fetched : it was shown thorough the Rebuils that opening a Door of Guf requires an immense power, one that only a Seed of Life or an awakened Evangelion can generate, h...

So, did Pen Pen really die then inbetween the two films? Maybe he just went into hiding? Or did he, like maybe fuse with he Wunder? I don't know.... god, I hope Final explains this stuff. If you squeeze your eyes just right, doesn't Wunder appear just a little bit similar to a penguin in ho...

Interesting, this could have several implications. I'll list a few speculative options off the top of my head. 1. Asuka has been beyond the Doors of Guf during the 9th Angel incident, and it has left its mark on her. Perhaps a part of her was even left behind (thus incorporating an element o...

While we're comparing Rei hairstyles, I would like to point out that it is interesting to see that Rei's hairstyle in Rebuild 1.0 holds a kind of middle ground between 2.0 and 3.0: http://wiki.evageeks.org/images/5/5e/Rei_Smile_1.11.png Perhaps the degree to which Rei's hair covers her f...

I was thinking, maybe the eventual implants was to give to Gendo a direct interface with all of neo-NERV installations, he seems to still spend most of his days in his old office, which is completely destroyed and doesn't seem to have a terminal in the desk, so he must receive information and t...

If Ritsuko is going to (try to) shoot anyone in FINAL, it will be Misato. Let's no go that far : sure she urged Misato to activate the Choker, but when she couldn't do it, Ritsuko didn't showed anger, but a sympathetic look, she perfectly understands what Misato was going throug...

Meh, just thought she deserved a wee bit revenge. Throughout Rebuild, Ritsuko only has meaningful interactions with Misato. Other characters just speak at her, rather than with her. As such, she appears to represent little more than the cold, rational, impersonal and ruthless mirror image of Misato...

You give Gendo too little credit. In NGE/EoE, he was shown to have an overriding agenda at the root of his master plan: unconditional love for Yui. And he sacrificed far too much for it (including arguably her love for him). In Rebuild 2.0, he showed a few glimpses of a softer side behind hi...

@tzigi: Then I think we are in agreement. Rebuild 2.0 and Rebuild 3.0 walk on opposite sides of a very fine line. Rebuild 2.0 balances between parallelling/compressing the events in NGE episodes 7-18, 20 and 23 on the one hand, and deviating from the outcome of the main plotlines. The result is a st...

My guess is a very complicated and specific one. The long version something like this: - Gendo's master plan is finally realized. He has used the Key of Nebuchadnezzar and can now control the fate of humanity. - He chooses to be reunited with Yui. Yui appears and rejects him for what he has done...

Being introduced to Lilith and Kaworu in the first third of the series is "minor"? Re: Lilith Shinji being shown Lilith by Misato was a more forceful (and earlier) variant of Shinji learning that all of the Geofront will self-destruct if an Angel ever reaches Terminal Dogma. It se...

IF Shinji had been retrieved after a mere month, instead of 14 years, THEN all we would have seen in Rebuild 3.0 would just be another variation of NGE episodes 21-24 (and possibly the first part of EoE). In other words, exactly what Rebuild 2.0 was for NGE episodes 7-20. --- In case you ha...
