Seriously? Not to quote bad dubs, but "at a time like this"? Thought it was some holographic analyzing device.

I kid you not, it's tea. She is holographically analyzing it, though. Leaf grade and all that.

She's British after all, thus she's genetically complied to regularly drink the precious British nectar even in the most inappropriate moment, especially in the most inappropriate moments. I'm sure that the first thing she did after Shinji escaped with Mark.09 was to ask for a cup of tea! :lol:

Here's something I'm frankly amazed isn't in the 3.0 FAQ: WILLE or NERV? Which of these guys are we supposed to be rooting for?
Life can seem a challenge. Life can seem impossible. It's never easy when so much is on the line.

Obviously Wille.

They have the plucky new generation and stuff. Colors. Neo-Nerv is a graveyard.

Fuyutsuki is the only real human being there, and he's old and bitter, probably not that far from dying. And the most terrible thing is, Shinji's enough of a ghost of the past to belong there, without a doubt.

WILLE sure compromized their ethics big time, but they're still the ragtag bunch who still believes insaving that barren rock; it is to be admired.
And I know an eighteenth charm, and that charm is the greatest of all, and that charm I can tell to no man, for a secret that no one knows but you is the most powerful secret there can ever be.

It's not in the FAQ because it's obvious : for WILLE of course.
NERV want the end of the world, or whatever Singularity thing Gendo has planned, and want to impose it to the rest of mankind whether they want it or not, and completely destroyed the main character's sanity to further their plans, and even overthrown SEELE, the traditional bad guys of the franchise, while WILLE are the guys who wants to prevent the destruction of the world and still have faith in mankind's potential.

There's still one movie left you know, don't bury Shinji in the ashes of the past yet, and also we don't know the real state of the world beside Tokyo-3 and its surroundings. The technologies and supplies WILLE disposes of heavily imply that the Lilin are still numerous and strong.

At this point, I'm inclined to say Wille. Neo-Nerv is the clear antagonist in these films.

Yeah, unless Shinji goes in full übermensch mode and take matters on his own hands and fuck everyone else's opinion, WILLE are the official good guys.

Hey, Madoka did it recently with Rebellion, I'm open to any possibilities! :D

God, Apparently you all have been discussing Q since November. Catching up on the discussion is harrowing.

Oh no, the last thing we need is for Shinji to take control of Instrumentality and trap everyone in his private waifu world, Homura-style.

There's a rumor spreading on 4chan that a FINAL trailer is due in September. Is there any truth to this?

There's a good chance, but it'll probably be short, probably no longer than a typical next episode preview from the TV series, like 15-30 seconds. The Q trailer with Asuka in space was released after the NTV broadcast of 2.0, so if tradition holds, we'll get something as it's been almost 2 years since Q came out.
Among the people who use the Internet, many are obtuse. Because they are locked in their rooms, they hang on to that vision which is spreading across the world. But this does not go beyond mere ‘data’. Data without analysis [thinking], which makes you think that you know everything. This complacency is nothing but a trap. Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.

And so we arrive at demagogy. - Hideaki Anno, 1996

The real question is whether Shinji will be able to reverse time to avoid his incomplete 3rd Impact, whether it IS a continuation or NOT lol, and above all whether the narrative will continue to favor Shinji and Asuka's love story, since it arguably is favoring my favorite version, Shinji with his kinda mother, kinda sister, kinda Lilith, Rei. Also, poor Ritsuko's hair. Such an underrated and awesome woman, despite the horrible voice direction Colleen Clinkenbeard is forced to go. As a whole, it is also too soon to say if the Rebuild surpasses EoE. So far, it is great, and has incredible visuals, but does not surpass in complexity or enjoyment. Thoughts?
Yui Ikari: Anywhere can be paradise as long as you have the will to live. After all, you are alive, so you will always have the chance to be happy. As long as the Sun, the Moon, and the Earth exist, everything will be all right.
Kouzou Fuyutsuki: When Man created Evangelion, were we trying to create a clone of God?Yui Ikari: Of course. Humans can only exist on this Earth. But the Evangelion will be able to exist forever, along with the human soul that dwells within it. When the Earth, the Moon and the Sun are all gone, EVA will exist, so long as one person remains. It'll be lonely, but as long as one person still lives...Kouzou Fuyutsuki: ...it will be eternal proof that Mankind ever existed.

I don't think there's anything arguable about the new movies favoring any sort of ship (it pretty clearly favors none), and I'd bet money that reversing time in any capacity simply isn't on the table (you can not redo).

People's deaths are to be mourned. The ability to save people should be celebrated. Life itself should be exalted. -- Volken Macmani, Tatakau Shisho: The Book of Bantorra
I hate myself. But maybe I can learn to love myself. Maybe it's okay for me to be here! That's right! I'm me, nothing more, nothing less! I'm me. I want to be me! I want to be here! And it's okay for me to be here! -- Shinji Ikari, Neon Genesis Evangelion
Yes, I know. You thought it would be something about Asuka. You're such idiots.

We have Asuka cooking for Shinji and sacrificing for him, being the relatable unrequited lover girl. We have Rei being both motherly with the dinner, and opening up to Shinji(first Rei at least lol). He has shown sexual desire for both, but it's Rei he is showing the most concern over(such as accidentaly starting 3rd Impact to try and save her....which he might have kinda sorta down...ohhhh Anno, u crazy lol).
Well, if the time skip stays, Asuka is roughly 28 and Shinji nearing 15, so it puts him in too submissive of a role with her. Rei is about the same age, yet timeless and infinitely older...and a bit schizophrenic arguably. Perhaps Shinji will help her to achieve her humanity and Womanhood and be the only one who can get her pregnant. Asuka seems to be part of the love triangle, but is taking a back seat. All will be decided in the 4th... if Anno doesn't run away ;) He firmly stated that part of the theme is making a decision to run away or not is better than doing nothing in his JUNE interview among others. Hopefully, his wife will keep him inline so we have a great finish.... or maybe he will start a new series and say F it lol
