Re: Theory: AAA WUNDER is the weaponised eleventh angel

That still doesn't address the "vessel of Adam" bit. We're explicitly told Mark 06 and Unit 13 are Adams that were refitted into Evangelions, making up two of the four possible Adams. Unit-01 is heavily implied to be the third. However, Mark 09 is uniquely referred to as a "vessel of...

Re: Theory: AAA WUNDER is the weaponised eleventh angel

How do you address Mark.09 being referred to as a "vessel of Adam", and does this affect your interpretation of the Wunder? My original post consists of a lot of notes I wrote while on the bus copypasted together... I guess there was a part that slipped through my radar. There was suppose...

Re: Ayanami and Autism

I'm gonna say no, although it sometimes seems that way. At risk of oversimplifying a spectrum of disorders — autistic people have lots of trouble with social cues. Things like intonation, subtle changes in phrasing and body language — things that might provide hints about another person's mood or i...

Theory: AAA WUNDER is the weaponised eleventh angel

The first piece of evidence is the shape of the ship, especially the front section: if you take away the Eva cages and the guns, you get something that basically looks like a winged cross between Shamshel and Gaghiel. Second is the fact that the entire HIRNSTAMM bridge is basically one huge entry pl...

Re: Was it ever explained why the Angels waited 15 years to start attacking?

Another argument for the point of NERV simply being unable to detect all angels immediately (shortened, but you get the point) is that all angels (except for Sandalphon, who I think is just an excuse for the volcano scene) were detected either when, or just before they attacked, which probably means...

Re: What would Rei be like with a little more personality?

You may want to look in to reading the Shinji Ikari Raising Project manga or playing the Girlfriend/Boyfriend of steel games as both take a slightly more light hearted fan service view of the universe which mirror that episode. ^_^ Ooh, nice... I actually planned on skipping those (or pushing them ...

Re: Meaning behind Asuka's Mom's Mixed Messages

Another explanation would be that its something along the lines of "If we die, we go down as one". Not really related to all the pictures in the vision, but it would definitely fit the scene and "final fight" athmosphere.

Re: From Your Lips to the Author's Ears: Story Ideas

Well, I did take more than a few liberties with the Evas. For example, when I wrote the Ramiel battle, I had Unit-00 unintentionally get hit by a nuclear detonation's EMP. While the Eva's organic bits were unaffected, the cybernetics weren't: the overvoltage knocked the Eva out of commission via ci...

Re: From Your Lips to the Author's Ears: Story Ideas

Nope. Unit-00 stands guard during Unit-03's activation experiment and snaps its neck as soon as Bardiel emerges to make it stay put while NERV figures out what to do with it - except Bardiel was theatrically trashing on purpose to lure Unit-00 in so that it can jump to Unit-00 as soon as it tou...

Re: From Your Lips to the Author's Ears: Story Ideas

As trivial as this is in comparison to the things discussed before, Id like to see Unit 03 and 04 surviving the explosion (or not exploding at all) and Bardiel (if executed correctly that could make for an awesome shot) to actually play a role as Eva Units instead of plot devices

I am just going to leave you this you tube link here to that whole AU scene because that gif does this no justice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aPyQ6dHsG3I&ab_channel=giblet0 That scene gets me every time... I actually wouldnt mind if that was made into a full 12-episode series

Re: a possible inspiration for the design of Leliel

I got an answer: Part of it was that paint costs resources that are often needed elsewhere, such as lead that could be used in bullets- another reason was manpower, painting takes time and lots of people Also, dazzle camo only works with the right conditions, such as formation spread, distance to ta...

Re: a possible inspiration for the design of Leliel

I’ve known about dazzle camo for a while, but I never made the connection with Leliel. Good catch. I wonder why dazzle cam wasn’t more common? It seems pretty effective to me. Determining distance and angle on bow was essential to aiming with torpedoes, and dazzle cam definitely makes that harder, ...

Knowing Anno and his steadfast inclination toward Anno-like things, ships feel like the more obvious source of inspiration to me. Nice find, Blockio!

Re: Shikinami or Soryu relationship with Shinji ?

Not really sure how you've come to the conclusion that they're in a better place after 3.0, where Shinji is still nihlistic, has regressed rather than progressed, lacks the will to live, isn't expressing himself in any way, and where Asuka is physically abusing him, than after EOE where both had fo...

a possible inspiration for the design of Leliel

During WWI, the US and british navy was experimenting with something called "dazzling camoflague". It consisted of irregular patterns of mostly stripes, usually dominated by black and white with a few other colors thrown in the mix. https://www.warhistoryonline.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/...

Since the lance literally was the weapon of last resort, this would have basically meant that Arael would have won, whatever that means.

Ritsuko discusses the repair budget after Operation Yashima, and Gendo has a conversation with a man about budgets being voted on and approved for various Evas around the wor...
