Also, if you go the the official Evangelion website , you can see the numerical titles listed along the bottom of the page as ":1.0", ":2.0", ":3.0", and ":FINAL". If we superimpose this onto the Japanese title, the reading becomes "Shin Evangelion Gekij...

Re: How Will Rei be Treated in the Next Film?

I'm gonna disagree on one count. Shinji wasn't trying to bring Rei back in Q. He was trying to restore the world. This is misguided, yes, because it involves trying to bring back "the way things were," but although there's some selfishness in this, I don't think Shinji is going to end up ...

Re: How Will Rei be Treated in the Next Film?

Heck, maybe the only way she can return is for Shinji to accept his loss. Like, it would make for a good counter to Gendo. While Gendo tried everything, including committing extremely questionable actions to get Yui back, he failed. Shinji on the other hand, accepted the loss of Rei, and that is wh...

Re: Shinji likes space: 3.0/FINAL foreshadowing?

It just might so happen that those are ideas that interest Anno as a person & thus it's only natural that they'd be recurring motifs or images in his work. The use of tracks from Nadia - greatly updated - is probably a case of a filmmaker calling back to his previous works. [...] Anno didn't re...

I think it makes more sense to assume they are distinct, but reference one another thematically and play and build off of one another, the same as e.g. NGE and Nadia, or NGE and RahXephon. I agree with you on this, and maybe that's what fed the controversy in the first place: the fact that NTE ...

Tokyo-3 was being evacuated when Zeruel leveled it and the brief shots we see in 3.0 don't show any reconstruction, so I'm thinking the 3.0 preview was on spot and the city was abandoned after Near-Third Impact except for Kaworu, some of the Nerv staff and the JSSDF or whatever occupying fo...

Shinji could go explore the moon!


Given that not only is Rei strongly associated with the Moon, but Kaworu spends two entire NTE movies there, I have to say I love where that is going.

This has probably been brought up before and I'm sorry for not having the patience to sift through 43 pages of heated internet arguments (like I've done it before but I can't really remember where I left off last time I had a look at this thread), but the manga's ending+epilo...

If the book Rei was reading was in fact The Happy Prince (I can't be arsed to check), I wonder if the roles might be the opposite: the Prince as Shinji and the Swallow as Kaworu would fit the theme of abnegation and sacrifice. In The Happy Prince, briefly, the Happy Prince isn't an a...

I since heard someone point out, I think it was in a review on Youtube, that that kind of explosion is just the old-school style explosions were drawn in - the reviewers seemed disappointed that they didn't stick with that style in 2.22. But the entire scene was just drawn out in a really simila...

NGE already had a couple scenes that reminded me of similar scenes in 2001, namely the otherwise innocuous shot of Gendo alone in a plane (on his way to Antarctica IIRC) with someone coming up and striking a chat. And far more clearly, the Seele monoliths. Anyways there's already a page ...

Sorry for the necro, but this discussion reminded me of something that may be relevant here. So, it's fairly well-known that the soundtrack for Q was chock-full of rearranged tracks from Nadia. One in particular is the Nautilus battle theme (called "Rebirth of Nautilus" iirc), ...
