Okay, i see this debate is still in good health. A few points: 1., On Shinji actively wanting to end the world: I think there's a bit of jumping the gun going on around here, as far as the "defence" interpreting what the "prosecution" is concerend with goes. The correlation b...

The responses below are for at symbv, too, since his nad Hyper's arguments overlap. I wonder from where you got the impression that it's a delusion, Shinji and Rei were quite close, What does Shinji really know about Rei besides that she wanted to throw a party and that she is kinda cute? No...

So much for the topic. If you have to destroy the plug to kill the Angel, it would make a whole lot more sense to destroy it in a way that would actually affect an amorphous blob, like melting it or something. By crushing the plug to kill a fungal growth in it, you might as well be trying to punch a...

@symbv and HyperShinchan: 1., My argument is that Shinji sought to save Rei for himself, not because Rei wanted to be saved. He wanted to get her out of there no matter what because he felt like it's the right thing to do. Rei's stance on things, or indeed, her very person didn't matter...

Actually I think it is clear in 2.0 that Shinji does not pilot Eva for personal pleasure. He went back only to save Rei, so he pilots Eva for someone else, not for himself. The only one who gets immediate gratification from rescuing Rei is Shinji. Rei even pleads Shinji to abandon her, but Shinji k...

Thanks to all who wished me a happy one. It was, even though i kicked off the day by finding some gray strands of hair on my head. Well, two dozen years is already a lot, i guess.

Also, happy b-day to Xard.

By schoolkids, i was obviously referring to the Eva pilots in epiosde 11. First they got out of the base via a blastdoor, then went back in, and comically ended up in the command room. Meaning that during a power outage, all a possible intruder needs is knowledge on where to find a suitable opening,...

And I'm saying for the third time now that Gendo has taken precautions against assassinations and kidnappings by no longer leaving the Geofront. He also ignored a direct summons by SEELE and sent Ritsuko instead. "Taking him out" was no longer an option for SEELE by the time they were...

If anything there being two whole movies left excites me more than anything. Most of the fluff in the narrative has already happened & I'm looking forward to see what a film in this franchise will look like without an Angel battle interrupting the flow of the story every 15 minutes. While i...

Again, some replies, again, a tad belatedly: Besides, taking out Misato would just result in Gendo commanding battles himself. The Bardiel fight proved to us that Gendo was also perfectly capable of winning Angel battles without Misato's help. (Maintaining staff and pilot morale is not reall...

I'd think it's not as much the state of the county as it is the privilege of it ending up on top of the Geofront/Black Moon and Lilith. Well, i did mention international aid, but i still think that the infrastructure of Japan itself is fairly healthy. Another thing that might be considered ...

Kohoku is quite a distance from Tokyo, but as depicted by the scenes, people are having a "normal" life. So I don't think stress would cause fertility rates to drop, and the environment is pleasant. Keep in mind that Tokyo-III is not the real life Tokyo city. Nerv's fortress city ...

^ That would imply that Seele hasn't the faintest clue about the psychological profile of the guy they entrusted with their most precious project. No matter how i look at it, Seele just shakes my faith in competent bad guy-dom.

There's much character development and info dump needed for Mari, Asuka and Kaworu alone: add on this the entire plot thread of Shinji doing his ep 20 trip (with Rei this time around) which means a lot of focus will be on him too... oh boy, I have no idea how one film would've been ...

Thus I'd like to reverse TMBounty_Hunter's question: why don't you want Sequel Theory to be true? There's still no hard evidence but it's also too early to completely put aside this chance. I could give some deeper arguments, but on a basic level, i just think it's a lousy i...

Necro! Necro? Eh, not really, more like CPR. Replacing Gendo would not have been easily done. It's not as if Gendo would show up when summoned; "When summoned"? Did i gave the impression that i'm suggesting some formal ways for getting rid of Gendo? Last time i checked, assassinati...
