I've brought this up before and think its worth bringing up again. I'm wondering if different cultural conceptions may play into Shinji's treatment in Q. If anyone more familiar with the Japanese value system and thier attitudes regarding responsibility could chime in it would be quite i...

So what are the chances we get a little morsel of Final news at the opening? Is this pretty much gap-padding or is there a chance?

So not having your head (but continuing to function) is a trait of Adams. It's... not essential although Mark.09 grows one - for what, convenience? Does this mean Adams are mindless driven bodies? None of the FoI - which seem to be modeled on Eva-01 - have heads either, so what are they...

As brains in jars, do SEELE still count as decapitated? The body is gone, but the remainder is not even a full head. Yeah I think Seele definitely counts since a lot of the decapitation imagery is actually more to do with the brain. A lot of the decapitation imagery is about not having a body too, ...

Mostly a combination of 'drils and 'quils, the Nyquil especially always gives me intense dreams. Often times I never feel rested because though it helps me get to sleep I feel exhausted by how much I dreamed once I wake up.

There are lots of possible interpretations for the various instances of decapitation in 3.0, most of which apply to central characters. The beheading works as a symbol in two ways: It implies disconnect from one’s rationality/autonomy/self (no head), but also serves as the removal of connect...

I’d like to talk about how the theme of patriarchy plays into Q, specifically in the generational divisions and the pregnancy/birth imagery. I feel like the feminist interpretation of Q is particularly apt, especially when extended to include ecofeminism. Generations: Seele was the governing patriar...

If they really are careful with him, because they are afraid he'll have a breakdown / cause trouble with eva01 whatever, they shouldn't stick machine guns in his face as soon as he wakes. Avoid answering any question he asks. When he suggests to help, he's told to fuck off. And last but...

I tend to excuse the Idiot Ball as long as the characters making the dumb/unreasonable decisions are still acting within character. Shinji: blinded by guilt, incomplete information, 3 days without sleep (great find btw), thrown into an intense situation, plus his character has always struggl...

I never said she doesn't have emotions. What i meant with the word ''thing'' was that her role in the movie is pretty much useless. The only important thing she did was to take Shinji from Wunder. So you're saying she's functionally useless to what happens in Q? While I ...

I had a theory that the Mark 9 went around beheading the FoI's with that scythe it used to decapitate the Mark 6, down in dogma. Maybe as to prevent them from "re-activating" in the future. Even if this doesn't end up being the case, I quite like the imagery of Rei going around an...

She has an additional reason to resent him. "He started the apocalypse for the other girl, but he was too worried about getting his hands dirty to do jack shit for you". Yeah, then he ran off with her as soon as she showed up. Pups is gonna be in the dog house for a while, maybe permanently

Alright I'm going to try and explain how Shinji may not have directly caused the stuff in 14 years, and why if that's the case, Wille's treatment of him still makes sense. Since first seeing the film, I noted that Kaworu's explanation left Shinji's exact role in the events vague,...
