Yes, that makes sense, since everyone here speaks Japanese.

Well, I gladly accept this as a backstory for Mari's character in Rebuild if no better explanation turns up in Shin. The only thing I dislike is, that in the Manga's continuity she has no place, and we might never learn what happened to her in Sadamoto's Evangelion. It would have been a...

We dont disagree, maybe I'm too harsh. The thing it's that keep using arguments which have been debunked one by one it's just stupid. At least you should give me that credit. I'm afraid I don't know what you're talking about. We seem to agree on the following: - The manga in...

It's not about a theory, it's that if you want to the teory taken seriously you have to use arguments which don't lack common sense. Who is arguing with you about that? I think some version of the loop theory makes sense, given what we know so far. You seem hung up on the sequel theory....

Actually, what interests me is why people are so keen for there to be a loop at all. What are they trying to prove? It would just take the story another step further from the reality that it would seem (as a story with a moral) to be an analogue of. It's not about proving anything. I am...

If we're talking about reset, yes, because reset is going back to the exact starting point, the same minute, hour, day and year : the groundhog day. What we see in sadamanga's ending is not time loop, not even a repetition of events : just reincarnations. Still, the most opposite ending to ...

There is a thing you don't seem to understand : in the manga there is no time loop, there is no reset, there is no travelling back in time. The remains of 3I impact are there, it's the same world and the same time line. What we see are not the original Shinji and Asuka, they are just reinca...

Re: My "The Universe Reborn Dogma" (Loop Theory)

Oh, come on, stop being childish. This is the argument of someone who knows he has no leg to stand on, but is covering his bases as best he can. Seriously? My stated desire to avoid this debate is a reflection of the fact that I have watched this exact same argument play out between you and other m...

Re: My "The Universe Reborn Dogma" (Loop Theory)

I think the fact we have no meaningful evidence to work with is reason enough to dismiss them. OK Bagheera, you are on the record as being one of this forum's most vocal opponents of the loop theories. I get it. I have read your arguments and digested them, and I regret to inform you that I am ...

Re: My "The Universe Reborn Dogma" (Loop Theory)

By way of disclosure, I am a fan of the loop theories. I am also partial to sequel theories, although the biggest unanswered question is how we get from the conclusion of EoE to the beginning of 1.11. That said, I don't think we have enough information yet to conclusively prove, or disprove, any...

I'm one who believes that's it possible a new Rei clone and her respective Eva, with her soul in place, was "eaten" by the 12th Angel (a la 10th Angel/Zeruel style) in attempting to stop it and then merged with Lilith with disastrous results and that's where Mark.06 co...

Ah, interesting. So it is the same tune. I assume the Japanese got it from Rousseau, possibly via Western missionaries who used it for hymns.

EoE Sandbox Sequence -- Music

I recently re-watched End of Evangelion, and the music that plays during the infamous sandbox sequence caught my attention. I noticed that the Theory and Analysis: Sandbox Sequence page in the Wiki identifies the music as a Japanese children's song, "Te o hiraite." I must confess that ...

Well, another interpretation is that Quantum!Rei came to existence in NGE when Rei became a god via her fusion with ADAM and just after merging with Lilith. But in Rebuild by the time of Q, Rei is inside EVA-01, which is stated to have become a god in 2.0 when it awoke and started N3I, so it's ...

Wow, thanks everyone! Super helpful. Consistent with Tae Kim's Guide, I've started with learning hiragana. It's interesting how the hiragana relate to the kanji from which they are derived. For example, い is derived from 以, which in Chinese is pronounced yi ; せ is derived from 世, which i...

Resources for studying Japanese?

I know we have at least a few students of Japanese here, so here is a plea for advice. By way of background, I am for all intents and purposes fluent in Chinese. (Not native-level fluency, but functional fluency.) I've studied Chinese for about 12 years, lived in Asia for 2+ years, earne...

I'm stuck at home after undergoing a minor surgery, so I rewatched 1.11 today. Twice. (Hey, I'm stuck in bed and have lots of time on my hands.) The time traveling theory has always struck me as too far-fetched, but after watching the Kaworu scene at the end of 1.11 a couple times in...

It's not like montages are some bizarre, avant garde thing that Anno concocted. They are typically used to suggest the passage of time. The simplest explanation is that Shinji gradually improved over a period of weeks, through practice, rather than virtually overnight with the help of Kaworu mag...
