The auto-cynical reaction might be to think that Khara are stepping in to supervise Funimation. But looking at things from another perspective, the implication here is that up to now Funimation have been left to dub the show more or less entirely on their own. Harshly: The creators have effectively ...

But that's how Evangelion has always been. I for one am not expecting any useful infodumps in Final. I wonder if Seele wasn’t defeated, but merely transferred/copied into Mark.09’s core. It seems as though they have already achieved some form of transhumanism in NTE anyway, seeing as how Q shows...

Both Reis are likely from the same event, (presumably, but not necessarily final impact), but whatever caused it, if Rei can be back in 2015, the Wunder's proximity is obviously not a factor. I've argued against the time-travelling bookend Rei's before, so I won't labour the...

Who gives Rei-Q her orders

This is at first glance an almost absurd question, but 3.0 doesn't actually make this all that easy to answer definitely. Just who is the one giving Rei-Q her orders? Does she accept them a particular person or entity, or from anyone at all? In particular, who ordered her to cut off Mark.06'...

Mark.09 and the SEELE program

Another specific topic thread: What is the nature, purpose and operation of the SEELE program which takes over Mark.09. Mark.09 is taken over by this SEELE program, visualised by the logo appearing all over the entry plug. This occurs after the 12th Angel surrounds Eva-13, as Rei-Q is staring at the...

Rei-II and the Wunder

I'd like to start a series of threads examining smaller scale topics and details in Eva 3.0, in the hope that considering specific issue might help us zone in on other questions or stumble across new interpretations. To start, I want to discuss a possible connection between the appearance of Rei...

I agree that Misato really didn't want to see him again, but the principal reason he is brought to the bridge is likely so that Ritsuko can activate the DSS choker, verify its installation, and above all assign the detonator to Misato and Misato alone. The only reason Shinji stays on the bridge ...

To me, it seems that the principal piece in the 3.0 soundtrack is the piece which plays as Shinji and Kaworu descend to Central-Dogma (It's the same piece throughout) Time stands still as battle worn Beneath your feet the blood runs cold No one moves Death,wasteland, razed to the ground,...

To me it seems that 3.0 was putting you in Shinji's shoes and it really did a good job making you feel as confused(if not more) as Shinji, and I don't necessarily believe that it was completely 100% a Shinji's story film. I'd would agree completely here. Shinji's is the ...

Welcome to Evageeks, where "Loop Theory" is like the young-earth creationism of EVA theories. Even the most ardent Quantum Rei supporters won't try to put to fill all the EVA franchise stories into one meta-continuity. Actually, an internal Rebuild-continuity only loop theory might ac...

What I want to know is, Why? Why would Asuka help Shinji after everything he's done? One thing that 3.33 makes very clear is that Asuka has become a far more professional soldier in the 14 year interval ("mature" is probably too risky a word in Eva). She carries out and even g...

They,like most penises, can sense a female 100 miles away. However, sometimes a giant cetacean-like monster head is just a giant cetacean-like monster head. That said it's worth pointing out that the original drafts of Air did refer to the MP-Eva's attacking Eva-02 as "an image of rape...

As you can see, "person B" appears to be bereft of understanding; commonly referred to as "stupidity". Person A has very clearly expressed an issue in the plan and it needs to be aborted. Kaworu does appeal to Shinji's reason, but the point I'd emphasise is that the plot...

I'd like to start by saying that I completely disagree with the notion that Shinji's insistence on pulling out the spears is unexplained or a plot hole. It's one of the most hammered home points in the film. To begin, after Kaworu pulls Shinji back from his despair -- caused by seeing th...

To come back to the main discussion, this additional security -- Shinji is whisked off to Gendo -- might be an indication that Rei is not allowed to visit Shinji. Perhaps Asuka has only looked in the door, or at a chart, or was informed by someone else.
