Re: Mari Breaking the Loop?

I'm also not open to the idea of Shinji waking up at the end of 3.0+1.0 and exclaiming "it was all a dream" whilst End of Eva continues happening... Which is another asinine theory which gets tossed around. I'm not open minded, at all, to any of these amateur-hour ideas. They sound like so...

Re: Mari Breaking the Loop?

Close minded? Trying to piece together "six degrees of separation" between two seperate entities does not make you open minded. It makes you obsessed! If you cannot watch Rebuild without "fan-fiction-ing" it to have an in-universe connection to NGE when the story itself makes it ...

Re: Mari Breaking the Loop?

"Conclusion: Rebuild IS NGE if NGE had been done with today's technology." Hear hear! As a wise old Dane once said... "let it go". And by that I mean the series. Let NGE go... at least when discussing Rebuild. Seriously; there's liking something and then there's this... being suc...

Re: Sequel theory once again.

I was just (re)watching Hellsing Ultimate and I had a random thought. Are there people out there that watch Hellsing Ultimate or Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood and believe they're sequels to Hellsing and FMA respectively? I doubt it. So what makes Rebuild of Evangelion so special that this keeps co...

Re: Sequel theory once again.

I know my opinion about End of Eva is unpopular but it's how I feel. I care so little about EoE that I don't even have the desire to discuss it. This thread is about Rebuild anyway :) The thing with mental health issues like depression and anxiety, is you can never be cured of it; you can only manag...

Re: What are the "Adams"?

I thought "the Adam on the moon" was Eva Mk06; which then turned out to be the 12th Angel in 3.0. Both the "Mk Evas" appear to be other entities repurposed into Evas; Mk06 was made from the 12th angel and Mk09 was made from the Wunder's core... and is also an Adams Vessel. What e...

Re: Sequel theory once again.

If Rebuild turns out to have any direct relation to End of Evangelion I'll walk away from Eva forever. Eva was pretty much dead for me back in 2004; it was 7 years old, I had watched it to death in my late teens and the anime bubble was in full swing back then. I had a full time job and was cashed u...

Re: Eva's besides Unit-01: Souls or no souls?

Something like that; controlling the Eva from within the core, as opposed to the variable depth of the entry plug. On the subject of Entry Plugs; theres a cool freeze frame moment in 2.0 when Unit 01 awakens and we see the computer graphic showing the different plug depths. Past the Terminal Depth i...

Re: Sequel theory once again.

Tah! I'm pretty sure there hasn't been anything to suggest that it could be true, it was just a random idea. Anno will have something better in mind no doubt. Further to Rebuild not being a direct sequel in NGE is the meta references to other anime. During 1.0 you see a red Volkswagen get flattened ...

Re: Eva's besides Unit-01: Souls or no souls?

Unit 01 is the only Eva that has a human soul in Rebuild. In NGE; a human soul was required in the Eva for it to work. Further to that, the soul had to be related to the pilot somehow; Shinji and Rei can pilot each others Evas because Rei is related to Yui (she's a clone of her) and Shinji is relate...

Re: Sequel theory once again.

Hey hey; long time Eva fan, short time lurker. I've never liked the sequel idea; setting aside there being too many inconsistencies (Unit 02's blood changes colour between versions for example) the idea of Rebuild being a sequel is SO boring. Rebuild is a remake and should be viewed as such. As for ...

^ And it shows; ep26 even feels as though Anno is speaking from the heart through Shinji's mouth. It's been a long time since I watched NGE but I distinctly remember ep26 revolved solely around Shinji and his version of instrumentality; as his soul and personality merged with everyone he kne...

The 10th angel didn't just eat Unit 00; it absorbed it/merged with it. Pilot and all. When Unit 01 beats the proverbial snot out of the angel, Shinji pretty much kills it without shattering it's core. It could eventually regenerate I suppose, but that's before Shinji rips Rei's soul ...

Aniplex US made my day today when the announced the bi-lingual release date for the first two PMMM movies. Even though I own the series, I've been hanging out for any news on the movies getting a dubbed release since I saw Rebellion earlier this year. 15th of July. Will be importing both of these.

Funnily enough, that's almost how I imagine Asuka and Mari meeting each other would go; Mari would be friendly, Asuka would be "stand off-ish ", Mari would be cheeky (though not like that -o-;) and violence would ensue.
