How many other people ponder the true potential of the depths of her personality? I'm thinking of what she said somewhere during episode 25/26, something along the lines of "I used to pray for the day of my end to come, now I fear it" or something like that. Switching over to Shinji a...

Wild ass fanwank alert, but what if what Fuyu said about Gendo losing his soul was factually accurate? ReiQ's little bit of soul had to come from somewhere, and Gendo is even more impersonal than ever. Just saying. This would indeed be pretty cool - But, I don't think the Eva-verse has esta...

The point I'm trying to make is, that it's very likely that the JSSDF was told, that EVERYBODY was involved in planning and executing the apocalypse and therefore guilty. Doesn't it sound weird to assume, that there were civilians present in the main quarter of the "evil-new-world-...

^Before I respond to you again, I want to make something absolutely clear. EVA-01 is SPECIAL. I never stated that it wasn't. SEELE doesn't see it that way because they don't know that it's Lilithian. Please stop saying things that imply that I'm suggesting otherwise. Going forwar...

I personally would do so too, it's also one of the reasons I don't agree with the death penalty. If I'd have the opportunity to choose the penalty for an (in my view) completely evil person and choose between (more or less) painless death and being in jail until the end ...

I agree with the submission, that we don't know what they were told. There are cenarios in which killing unarmed individuals would be "neccesairy". (I hate to use stereotypes but: I'd kill a nazi scientist who's working in an euthanasia camp, even if he's unarmed) ...

Personally, i always interpreted the indiscrimante murder of Nerv personnel as a "revenge" or "punishment" towards Nervs (not necessarily from the JSSDF's part), since they're then seen as an Aum-like cult trying to bring forth the apocalypse. It's not like m...

Gendo seemed clearly surprised that SEELE planed to use Mark.06 for HIP, and that it means that they'll have to accelerate their plan to awake EVA-01, before Mark.06 is finished and sent to Earth. Fuyutsuki also states when they're in space that there was supposed to be only five units buil...

Because EVA-01 was the original mean for SEELE to trigger HIP and by being absorbed inside it Yui was guaranteed to be at the center of everything to screw their plans. That was until SEELE discovered the ADAM in the Moon. I don't know that to be true. As far as I'm concerned, their origina...

Re: The JSSDF

The problem is that non-lethal means take time to deploy : after incapacitating the NERV staff, they would had to restrain them, put them in a room and leave soldiers to keep an eye on them... all of this take time, and the Japanese government was told by SEELE that Gendo was trying to trigger Thir...

The girls all have -nami surnames because they're all clones. The only pilot who isn't a clone is Shinji. Toji isn't a pilot in this continuity because he's not a clone. Yes, I have surmised that before, but I wasn't aware that this is official or just fanwankery... inb4 Shinji&...

I actually brought up Clarke's third law because anything that seems inexplicably mystical or "magical" in NGE is just sufficiently advanced technology. This built-in demystification results in NGE following sci-fi genre conventions only, not those of fantasy . What I mean is that I c...

Re: The JSSDF

And another point I would like to touch on, were the JSSDF really that that harsh in their conduct in EoE? They killed unarmed and injured people with an array of weapons (including and not limited to flamethrowers) But I think that they were doing all this with good intentions, NERV posses...

From a epistemological point of view, you presented us with a false dichotomy. You need direct logical negations. The true dichotomies are:

1. Sci-Fi vs Not Sci-Fi
2. Fantasy vs Not Fantasy

I'd argue that it's both Sci-Fi and Fantasy, for the same reasons as Reichu have pointed out.

The curse is the only thing that makes me doubt the purity of Q as Art. The pilots (except Rei) probably should be adults, to hammer the point home even further. The curse of eva = curse of being an eva fan thing is just belaboring a point that has already been made. Frequently. I'd rat...
