That's a valid point. The Black Moon would have to be made of some serious shit to smack into the Earth and come out unscathed, but it chips when you bang on it? I think I just figured it out - the shields were up during the impact and that's how it survived, but they're down now which ...

Huh. I must have misremembered one of the early hits wiping out a group partly composed of scientists, or else badly assumed that any scientists SEELE had on their payroll were necessarily working on the Eva series (they could also be working on curing hepatic cancer in a hurry if Kihl's gen...

I think I have a different assumption about the total number of scientists worldwide who are skilled enough in metaphysical and normal biology to be able to develop an Eva, and the ratio of this number to the number needed to run an Eva lab, than you do. My mental model is that the pipeline there is...

Material-wise, what do we think the shell is made of? The empty part forms basically a dome, and while IANA M E I think that for a true dome you've basically got a compressive load on the top half and a tensive load on the bottom half (with the magnitude forming a gradient and an infinitessi...

I don't think either Ritsuko's dialogue in Episode 23 is conclusive, and I don't think anybody thinks anything Sadamoto says in the manga is conclusive proof about anything in NGE. If Anno had said it you'd have an argument that I think anybody besides "death of the author"...

Hence "changed the setting's metaphysics." I was under the impression this was based on NGE, where the parent/child bond was crucial for successfully synchronizing with an Eva (for a normal human, anyway) . NTE's a whole different animal. You are of course free to change s...

One thing that hit me and struck me as odd is that the film establishes a parallel between Zach, the older kid, and the father. Presumably the father cheated on the mother; Zach has a blonde girlfriend like his dad has a blonde wife and spends the whole movie (lamely) trying to cheat on her...

the Eva's either active or it isn't, and nothing the Eva does drains the batteries any quicker. Actually, in some early episodes the Eva has 1 minute on batteries under maximum load (moving around a lot) and 5 minutes under a regular load and later on it has 5 minutes regardless of ...

I see your point, though I don't think the Harpies and the various Angels engaged over the course of the series are similar enough in their capabilities for the number of targets simultaneously engaged successfully to be a reasonable performance metric. There is also the weird caveat that the Ha...
