Re: Should Asuka die in the final film?

Huh. Now why would Asuka go through so much trouble just to save him when she would get nothing out of it? I'm pretty sure she thought it would be easier to leave him behind, and maybe a bit more preferable for her liking. Perhaps the fact that she did go to all that trouble suggests your conclusio...

Re: Misato as Nerv Tactical Operations Officer

I think there is only a misunderstanding on her part, I just said that Misato did not have the technical knowledge to deal with an Angel as Iruel, even though she has the authority, she corresponds only to the tactical area. In the end this is just a script error, because things do not make sense. ...

I say she's unrelated to both of them, and is just some schlub who worked with Yui and was squeeing over her kid.

Re: Should Asuka die in the final film?

And even when 4I was in process Misato still didn't try to trigger the choker. The folks in Wille just don't want to kill the kid, no matter how expedient it might be.

Re: Shin Gojira (a.k.a. Godzilla Resurgence)

Having the DVD is nice because BD drives were (maybe still are?) fussy, which means a lot of people can't play the BD everywhere even if they supposedly have the right equipment. The DVD is a handy backup that can be played most anywhere.

Re: From Your Lips to the Author's Ears: Story Ideas

Don't forget the massive fleet we saw working with Wille, nor the helicopters supplying them. All of those people had to come from somewhere, and there are too many of them for them all to be from Nerv. And of course, Misato and Ritsuko and the rest survived, so other folks in town have a really goo...

Re: Transition guides

Kaworu and Yui can both appear to Gendo. Both Adam and Eva-01 are merged with Lilith at this time, and Lilith exhibits an ability to appear anywhere (despite being physically located in Kanto) -- so we can probably assume that Adam and Eva are taking advantage of the same mechanisms that Lilith is....

Re: Transition guides

My take is that, in the final version, Gendo wasn't turned into LCL (during our watch, anyway) because his soul was procured in another way -- by being eaten, and, thus, taken into Eva-01 directly. (The creepy Eva-01 is channeling Yui's look from episode #19, when she infamously absorbed something ...

Izumi from the "Impacts" short survived and is now a low-ranked WILLE member lowkey motivated by avenging the deaths of her friends. Didn't Izumi leave before the attack? Haruka was the one in the shelter, so I think the other two had better chances of survival. That said, the ending of t...

Well, we plainly see that she does in episodes 16 and 22' at least, and there's no way EoE went down as it did without some amount of feeling there.

Re: Misato as Nerv Tactical Operations Officer

Destroying the Magi System would end Nerv and could no longer fight the angels, I mean that Misato was mistaken for lack of knowledge in this decision, how could she keep the command acting wrong? So a commander has to be right 100% of the time to keep their command? Again, your expectations here d...

Re: Misato as Nerv Tactical Operations Officer

I did not put this in question, what really bother me is Misato intrude into an area that is clearly that of Ritsuko, meaning Iruel is a kind of 'hacker angel', what could Misato do? Respond to the crisis as director of operations and defer to those with more specialized knowledge when appropriate,...

Re: Misato as Nerv Tactical Operations Officer

Isn't this simply an example of Ritsuko being an expert on the computers and them having to deal wih a computer problem that particular day? Yeah, I don't really see how that can be spun as commentary of any sort on Misato's capabilities as a commander. It would be really weird if Ritsuko didn't kn...

Again though, her vegetarianism seems like an odd decision on the part of the creators if it's simply the taste and not to indicate Rei's maternal connection with all life. It's such an important part of her characterization that it carried over into the Rebuilds. To me, discovering that Rei doesn'...
