Does anyone know if there are any differences in the Adult Swim broadcasts of the New Theatrical Evangelion films? I know CN altered the first two episodes of Neon Genesis when they aired them during Giant Robot Week (although for the life of me I can't find any images or videos of said edits), but I'd be surprised if [AS] was able to air either series without any edits. I mean, I'm pretty sure you can't show a 14 year old's tiddies on American television...
I've reached a point where I just generally don't give a fuck anymore. In a good way.

I doubt there would be any differences, it's 2018 2019 and its Adult Swim, they have no need to edit anything down due to the time slot they broadcast in not having to be child friendly.

I don't know. They've re-edited NTE before on Adult Swim. (At least, I think it was Adult Swim, and not Toonami.) Even if they're night-time programing, and even though the FCC has no jurisdiction over subscription-based media (such as cable network channels), a lot of networks still see it as good business to cater to the expectations of those who are used to broadcast television.

I don't have cable, so I can't say either way if NTE was re-edited or not. But it wouldn't surprise me if it was, despite the legal freedoms Adult Swim has.

The FCC has no control over anything outside of broadcast TV. Any edits that Rebuild was subject to was to appease the advertisers and Turner's own standards and practices. I guess the only possible scene that they edited was a brief moment of Rei's breast nipples being visible during the iconic moment of her getting out of the shower and Shinji stumbling in. Other than that, it's gone unscathed.
