Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media

The tweets reference 打ち入り (uchi-iri), which is an anime industry term for an informal social gathering held to mark the beginning of voice recording work. (Props to this page for explaining it.) The latter is called "afureco" ("after-recording"), and is the same word used in Japa...

Re: Post-3I Yui: Monument or Mother? Mk. II [Split]

A Seed of Life is going to be proof of her creators' existence, so the thread title has " Merely a monument" implied. The traditional argument is that Yui is just going to float in space forever and not do anything with her inherited powers. The previous iteration of the thread, which I li...

Re: Why must Asuka be "the best" pilot?

Asuka's mother Kyoko used herself as a guinea pig in an experiment with Eva-02. She survived, but at the cost of part of her soul -- the part associated with motherhood. Kyoko became severely mentally ill as a result, and one way in which her loss manifested was that she could no longer recognize wh...

Re: Post-3I Yui: Monument or Mother? Mk. II [Split]

Alright, done. Have at it!

Here's a previous iteration of the topic (also a split, funny enough) that's worth skimming through, at least at the beginning. Like many threads, it veers into something totally different as it goes on.

Re: If Lilith was born from the Black Moon, why is Rei always shown with the White Moon?

Lilith wasn't "born" from the Black Moon; it's the vessel she used to get to Earth. Rei is associated with Earth's Moon, as in the satellite, because of First Impact. The Black Moon collided with Earth, and debris from the Black Moon's rocky outer shell and the Earth was ejected into orbit...

Re: Favorite crazy Evangelion theories

Other people's objections feel wrong, or you agree with them about the souls thing? If one wants to avoid the idea that Lilin souls were "sorted" in any way (with those who desired evolution, like Gendo and Fuyutsuki, going with Yui), Adam solves the issue rather neatly. The Angels would h...

Re: Post Ep. 21, Misato deliberately avoided facing Shinji and Asuka

I think she was just being honest before she died; like trying to tell Shinji I care about you in her honest/unhealthy way. I guess the difference is the connotation. You make it sound it a fetish or something. I think it's definitely part of the Freudian psychosexual complex that Misato started to...

Re: Post Ep. 21, Misato deliberately avoided facing Shinji and Asuka

Kissing a kid and promising him sex when you're on the verge of death and bleeding from the mouth is not really something you do out of a pure desire to "motivate" somebody. Shinji had already made it quite clear that he was not interested in sex with her. This was all about her, and getti...

Re: Eva Anatomy & Physiology: 2018 Edition

So at least when it comes to rebuild, the entry plugs are indeed so large that they could never fit without being converted to LCL or something. And those aren't even the only things Eva-13 can fit in there. Insert quadruple penetration joke here. I doubt we're meant to think the plugs convert into...

Re: Favorite crazy Evangelion theories

I love how well that plays with the interpretation of Yui becoming a new Seed of Life in total contrast to basically everything else about that scene. Unless we've been understanding her "proof of humanity's existence" speech wrong the whole time. A surface level reading lends itself well...

Re: Favorite crazy Evangelion theories

The crosses don't represent souls. The little red dots do, and those expressly fell back to Earth. What the crosses represent is the Way to God, the desire for human transcendence, as voiced by Gendo in episode 21 while a shadow cross appeared ominously behind him. In EoE, the formation of these cro...

Re: You Wake Up In The Eva Verse

If you made a habit of drinking that LCL, I feel like getting sick would be the least of your problems... We see in the final scene that there's a dilapidated town close by. Looting for packaged and canned foods seems the simplest and most intuitive option. This is quickly venturing from the origina...

Re: Does Rei Ayanami have schizophrenia?

"Not human" isn't accurate and tells us nothing; the series itself is clear on her humanity. I think her problems can be mostly attributed to a combination of (A) being an ancient alien in the wrong body whose soul has been artificially fragmented, and (B) being intentionally raised in a m...

@ Mr. Tines : The movie not-so-subtly shows the souls of humanity escaping the Black Moon and spreading back across the Earth. There's no "ascending as stardust", not at "face value" or as anything else. (Has it still been over 10 years since you saw the movie?) @DarkBluePhoenix ...

Physical structures being intact doesn't offset the fact that the human machine that had kept everything moving was completely destroyed with 3I. What happens now?

Re: Lilith and Yui's Contact Experiment, and Related Subjects

Between Kyoko knowingly repeating an experiment that the previous subject lost her body undertaking, and Kyoko not getting fully absorbed, I would guess that Kyoko's motivation was to prove the procedure (as imagined by Gehirn, not Yui) could be done. I feel that her getting the "maternal part&...
