But re-starting N3I would tend to put the brakes on any re-armouring. Or a satellite launch come to think of it. So, could Nerv have launched Eva-01 into orbit before removing the spear?

Well, we don't know who rearmored EVA-01, could have been NERV while it was still speared(with an hole in the armor were the spear was still embedded of course) Good point. But while we're at it, why assume that the spear was still embedded at all. It is more likely that Nerv eventu...

Who Re-armoured Eva-01, and when? [Split]

[Split from "[3.33] Things you noticed" . --OMF ] I think that EVA-01 is continuously radiating that weird energy that turns everything to core, but when its dormant the radiation is on a low enough level that EVA-02 could work around it with the protection of its AT Field(meaning tha...

Perhaps Eva-01 is actually continually radiating something hazardous? That said, Eva-02 only really seems to be in danger after the engine is ignited.

Note that I'm not suggesting here that silhouettes and turned backs in Evangelion should all be associated with Yui or motherhood. Indeed, there are several instances of silhouettes which have nothing to do with any such concept*. 06_C168.jpg 06_C170.jpg 06_C178.jpg 06_C179.jpg 08_C018b.jpg 16_C...

A related visual connection can also be seen between Yui and Rei. However with Rei, in addition to the use of silhouette, Shinji is often simply not able to make out Rei's face. The imagery of Rei facing away is a powerful mental connection to Yui. For Shinji, who cannnot remember what his mothe...

This highly backlit, faceless silhouette being Shinji's only mental image of Yui comes into play powerfully in his relationships with both Rei and in particular Misato. This silhouette imagery is in fact linked to Misato again and again throughout the series. Most obviously we have the mirror to...

Mother, Silhouette, and the Episode #20 Dreamscape

For a while now I've wanted to start a thread on the "Dreamscape" Shinji experiences while inside Eva-01 in Episode #20. I'm using the word "dreamscape" to refer to the dream-like, often jumbled up flashback scenes such as Rei's monologue(#14), Shinji in Lelie...

Welcome to the forum. I'm note sure about Tarot cards, but Kabbalistic imagery is an acknowledged source of a lot of Evangelion "lore". I'm curious though, why do you think the inverted tree of live was intentional? Is there specific symbolism associated to drawing the tree in this...

Re: "A woman who never bleeds"; Dummy Plug as Tamp

I find Sirona's proposal of a reproductive "arc" in Rei's interactions and personality to be absolutely fascinating. This has big implications for Rei's relationship with, and later betrayal of Gendo, not to mention Gendo's appearance as Rei-II dies inside a now "pregn...

Well, my first objection would be that Shinji couldn't get into Eva-01 to save Asuka because it was covered in Bakelite. Unless you can give Yui a legitimate reason to break out in time to save Asuka then Shinji can't do squat. You have just brought up one of the simplest, but completely un...

Re: Death of the Author and Anno

Does this same concept of Death to the Author apply when the artists are answering specific questions to details, or does it only apply when it comes to the intended or unintended message(s) behind the show? Does it apply at all, even when it does come to the intended message? The problem w...

When Shinji talks to Asuka he always refers to we and us (well, at least if my subs are translated correctly), thus letting her know he's not alone (and she doesn't question it, although she has other things on her mind). We'd need a more specific examination of the orig...

The DSS Choker was created specifically for Kaworu though, and WILLE are in possession of it. There's also the outstanding issue of who was piloting Mark.06 at the end of 2.0, something ex-Nerv personnel would make it their business to know. Everyone at Wille seems unsurprised by Eva-13's du...

Since it hasn't been mentioned already, I'll just note that Angels are also composed of PWM. Whenever we see any fantastic abilities and glowing orange octagons, it's always tied to a being made out of whatever PWM is. Humans have AT Fields, but they don't have S^2 Organs or whatever...
