Questions to ask Hideaki Anno once Rebuild 4.0 comes out

Everyone who watches NGE inevitably has questions about the Evangeli-verse. The show is famous for leaving many things unsaid and up to the viewer's interpretation. Director Hideaki Anno is perhaps equally famous for staying relatively quiet about his controversial brain-child. Anno has made man...

This is a long one, but it's one of my favorites from the series. It happens near the end of Shinji's Instrumentality sequence in Episode 26. Kaji: “There are as many truths as there are people.” Kensuke: “But there’s only one truth that’s your truth. That’s the one that’s formed by whatever...

I always thought that it was Adam's arrival that created the moon, and that the Black Moon that we see in EoE was Lilith's entire vessel. So then this raises the question: What happened to Adam's supposedly Moon-sized vessel?

As to the impacts: one cut Earth in half and created the moon, while the other "just" blew up Antarctica. The one is much more powerful than the other. If 2I had had the same magnitude as 1I the Earth would have broken apart. I wouldn't say Giant Impact "cut the Earth in half.&qu...

Yes! The second method looks great! Once you get the video running, I'm sure the interpolated pixels will be barely noticeable. Keep it up!

New idea: Lilith is a "rogue" Seed of Life that has no Spear. SEELE and NERV just assume that every Seed has a corresponding Spear, so they would obviously conclude that Lilith's Spear was knocked away or destroyed during Giant Impact. They have no way of knowing what actually happened.

I think the very first time I saw anything NGE related was when I was watching an Italian dub of "One Hour Photo," specifically the part where Jake runs into Sy while carrying the Mass Production Eva figurine. (Apparently Robin Williams is a fan of the series.) After that, Evangeli...

Durability of the Spear of Longinus

I posed this question in the last topic I created, "Spear of Longinus behavior in EoE." Since no one commented on it and the thread has gone dormant, I thought I'd bring it up in a new thread. As a weapon meant to subdue beings of immense power, I think it's safe to assume that the...

Wait the four we see in the second impact flashback are all Adams? I always assumed (this going along with the sequel theory) that those were MP EVAs from EoE, holding the black copy lances. Although I do subscribe to the sequel theory at this point, the MP Evangelions were never connected ...

I wonder if one of those is currently nailing Lilith to her cross? Even then, you've still got 2 Lances unaccounted for. Assuming that Lilith's Spear was also destroyed in Rebuild, then yes. Since it hasn't explicitly been stated, there could be up to three other Spears floating about. ...

Since we've seen the Spear of Longinus take at least three different forms in the series and End of Evangelion, I think it's safe to assume that this is just a new form taken by the Spear. The clip of Second Impact that we see in Rebuild 2.0 only shows the tips of two of the spears. For all ...

The Lance can only lock down a single Seed of Life to prevent a God scenario from coming into fruition (as it did with Adam originally), but it can't touch something that's already obtained Godhood (which... logically, makes sense.) From the fact that Adam's Lance was us...

Spear of Longinus behavior in End of Evangelion

I feel like I have a more than decent understanding of EOE after my four times watching it and all the material I've read on it. Even so, there's one event in the movie that doesn't sit right with me: As Eva-01 was breaking off its limiters at the beginning of Episode 26', the Spear ...

Honestly, it's hard for me to stop gawking at the animation whenever I watch Rebuild. Ramiel's redesign was just too good. :kensuke_drool: I'm really trying to withhold judgment on Rebuild until I've seen all of it, although I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed the first two installments. We still h...
