Also, I think Shinji was confused, so to speak, about how to react to Kaworu's apparent affection. He even says that Kaworu was the first person to ever say "I love you" to him, and that's the sort of thing that would really mess Shiji up. Also, I'm reminded of this scene (...

I don't think they have sex, no. I always interpreted Kaworu's extreme openness and over-friendliness more as a way to contrast him from the extreme closedness and unfriendliness of the other three Children.

(The following is a pretty baseless theory, so don't think too hard about it) Adam and Lilith both have the purpose of furthering humanity. During 3I, they merged to form the Giant Naked Rei, and during 3I Yui left Earth to continue what they started. This sort of "passing of the to...

Actually, with regards to the "Ark" theory... Perhaps Gendo's plan (but not Yui's, apparently, as it didn't happen) was to take all the souls (or all the "good" ones, anyway) with them on the Eva, to the new world. On the other hand, Kozo's line as...

Know what was interesting to notice? Aoba's the only person we see who gets more than one Rei to tangify him. All the other quantum Rei-tachi in that sequence are dressed in her schoolgirl outfit... but the ones that Aoba freaks out about are apparently naked. Perhaps that is his fantasy after a...

I'm not sure that the fact that we, the audience, see that deep down, Gendo is a good guy, changes the fact that he's a total jerk to pretty much every other character in the show. He was a jerk before he met Yui, and after Yui's "death" he's been an even bigger jerk. To th...

I didn't mean to say that he imagined it, just that it mirrors other scenes. I used "imagined" to refer to the people speaking to him (perhaps incorrectly) to suggest that they aren't physically there, and I didn't mean to imply that they weren't as "real"...

I always thought of that scene as Gendo's version of the stuff that happens to Shinji, Asuka, Rei and Misato in the show's finale -- surrounded by imagined versions (this is the me that exists in your mind) of those who are important to him (I'm not sure quite what the criter...

Unlike the space shuttle, Eva would probably be able to decend slowly (using the same abilities that let her float around in EoE), therefore avoiding the friction and heat usually associated with reentry. For a while I thought she was just going to be floating around as a monument to humanit...

However, the function of that picture appears to be to show those whom Shinji is anticipating seeing again some day. That would explain the absense of Gendo and Kaworu (who each betrayed Shinji) and Kozo likely got grouped in with Gendo, is my best guess. Is that something Kensuke is holdin...

I think the blocking differes, but Gendo does that "Fuyutsuki, take care of things here" in Episode 1 and Episode 11, as well. I think in both of those cases he says it from his little one-person elevator though. I'm also surprised that you didn't throw the Eva01-holding-Kaworu sho...

I don't see what you want me to see, I don't think. The fusion of Chibi-Asuka and Creepy-Doll-Asuka looks kind of like Creepy-Chibi-Rei, but only because of the creepy smile. Rei's tormented fantasies toward the end have clones in them, but they're presented in a different sort of co...

I was oversimplifying it to make them sound more similar. In Rei's case, I wasn't talking about the internal discussion she has with the angels, just the physical reaction she has. I'm not saying it was actually any kind of rape, quite the opposite actually. But the imagery was sexual, e...

(self-quote from another thread) When Arael tries to communicate with Asuka, its intentions may have been benign but Asuka reacts as if being raped. When Armisael tries to communicate with Rei, its intentions may have been benign but Rei reacts as if being raped. The next angel is Tabris, wh...

Is there? I was thinking of Kaworu. He's right in front of Lilith when Shinji grabs him, and although most of that set of shots focuses on Kaworu in front of Lilith's Mask, Lilith is of course on a giant cross. edit: Surprised no one wants to take a gander at the Akira-Kyoko connection, tho...
