Can you recall the specific source that you base that on? I'm not questioning its existence, I just want to review the context. From the Enokido interview, with the most relevant parts emphasized: --- This memo you put out, with what kind of feeling was it made use of? [It seems that this memo ...

Ten bucks says that the song Double H gave to Ringo will turn out to be a replacement fate spell. Somehow.

And the circles and panels look like the interlocking "comm" circles from the GiTS anime series. A similar visual element, sure, but the rings in this pic are based on the giant... CT? PET? MRI? whatever rings used to examine Eva-01 in 2.xx: http://img812.imageshack.us/img812/9341/ring1c....

Re: Fem-Shoma: Yeah, no, try again. Now we have confirmation as to who Kanba's sister is (though that line is still weird, given who said it initially, but whatever). Just to nitpick, knowing of one sister doesn't exclude the possibility of Kanba having more. But really, i think i w...

I sincerely hope that this is just our regular cast in some alternative versions, meaning new outfits or versions of different ages. Maybe the girl with the hat left of Kaworu is a young Misato? Maybe there are a few Rei clones amongst the silouettes (tres, quatro and cinquecento)? Perhaps a...

Shoma being reverse trap...oh wow. That's going a bit too far, even for Ikutwists. Still, why couldn't he have referred to Kanba and Himari with "sister" in somewhat snarky sense here? Would clear the whole thing up and the alternative really doesn't convince me... I thought o...

How would that work with the reveal at the end of 19? Himari refers to Shouma as her soulmate (it least that's how it got translated). That's a pretty broad term, and doesn't necessarily mean that they compliment each other in a way a male/female couple would. Hell, it might mea...

I'm sure it will all make sense eventually, but for right now I can't even speculate about what's going on. Much the same here. I actually tried to give up speculating on this series some time ago, but it's just too compelling to do. Related to that, something caught my eye the other day. Maybe it'...

I'm looking for an explanation of intent here, or to see if perhaps we've overlooked something. I would like to further peddle my theory about Asuka being a depiction of an, let's say, "autistic academic overachiever" (a "test otaku", if you will) with this q...

In short, why the disconnect? Well, my guess is that the idea behind the elements of Asuka's backstory you brought up is to portray someone who has done basically nothing in her life besides putting her back into getting good grades in tests, and, what's more, doesn't really care about ...

In defence of the scene in question: saying that Shinji needs experiences like these is not the same as saying that he bursts from joy at them, or immediately takes something away from them. In fact, he outright renounces the idea of becoming an adult while walking out from Gendo's office after ...

Rei blew up her missile inside the geofront. There are lights in the geofront. If the Geofront is artificially illuminated, then it is synchronized with the outside lighting conditions. Observe, when Shinji is raging atop the Nerv pyramid, which is obviously inside the Geofront, the lighting is all...

Since this is an infection type goo angel, how in the world does crushing it with a hand or mouth kill it INSTEAD of making you infected too? I don't remember whether this was addressed in the original or not, but in 2.22, when Bardiel starts infecting Unit-01, we can see the latter Eva's A...

Well the manga version shows Unit 01 being recaptured using a grappling hook system type thing. Well... yeah... but i feel it's up there with my Scooby Snack jibe in terms of being pretty damn stupid. One thing i can honestly laud as an improvement over the original in 2.22 is providing the Eva...

Well, what's even stranger for me is that it took such an ungodly long time for Nerv to figure out that Eva-03 was infected by the Angel and it now poses a threat. They only confirmed Eva-03 as a hostile when it was already near the command center, which must have took some time, since the test ...
