"So, you wish everyone would just die.."

"Then why are you still here?"
"..is it OK if I am here?"

I appreciate that Manga Entertainment placed the movie trailer at the very beginning of End of Eva on the DVD (though why they didn't bother subtitling it, I have no clue why); it feels like the ultimate front-bookend for the show.

I always wondered about the context for this trailer, and also the well-known EoE poster:

Image

But Shinji also mentions something to the effect of "Is it alright that I'm here?" right before the scream followed by the anti-AT-field . so what's the context for that line, and does it have anything to do with this poster? I forget if exactly what he said was "koko ni ite mo, ii no?", but was the implication similar, and is the poster referencing this?[/img]

The trailer was placed in front of the movie to start with; Manga Entertainment didn't make that decision.

The poster is referencing three lines from the movie, during Shinji and Rei's conversation before the HIP proceeds as scheduled. (Only 2 and 3 are in sequential order.)

(1) Shinji: "Dakara minna shinjae." (So everyone should just die.)
(2) Rei: De wa, naze koko ni iru no?" (Then, why are you here?)
(3) Shinji: "Koko ni ite mo, ii no?" (Is it okay for me to be here?)

Thanks for those images, Ill have to save them once I get to my dorm.

I myself agree...I hate Humanity..For some time I have wished something along the lines of TI to take place and leave only me and my girl friend left. She agrees with this.

Again, thanks for the images.

@O08Ikari: You and your girlfriend must really hate humanity. The viability of the species with just the two of you left is next to zero.

Lovely images! Thanks for sharing.

And believe me, I have similar feelings about humanity: usually after an especially bad day at work (grocery retail, and for some reason, grocery stores bring out the worst in people).

It should be said that, in EoE, it isn't just humanity that dies. Every last LCL-based organism dies. Remember this before telling Rei to kill everyone.

Yeah, whether or not every species dies off is something I wondered ever since therossman's Gendo Ikari Eva FAQs said otherwise (lolololol).

moreso I'm curious why Shinji says "is it OK if I remain here?" at that point in the movie. it's obvious he isn't hearing Rei in his self-destructive monologue, so that last line before the scream seems out of place.

Why is it when I read poster that I imagine the comedy movie voice-over man saying it?

"Don't you sometimes wish that everyone would die?"
"Well this year Shinji Ikari is going to find out:

Be careful what you wish for you might just kill humanity!"

"End of Evangelion - a feel good film for the whole family!"
Neon Genesis Evangelion (from the Greek Ευανγελιον, meaning "Gigantic robots piloted by mentally ill children")
Eva Facts:
-Gendo's final silenced line to Ritsuko was "I'm going to shoot you now."
-Nagisa Kaworu kills a kitten every time you masturbate.
-Kaji's first and last name was Kaji

I mean don't get me wrong, I'm sure there is some good in there. Sorry if some of my words come out wrong...I'm typing this with my gf on top of me...Not to boast..Its rather annoying. She told me to tell you she hit me for that.

When I went to this Light up Night, it was all nice and stuff but so many people..argh,I wished them all to go away. I mean come on..This lady yelled at me for bumping into her.

I enjoy peace and knowing that nothing can come between me and her. I just want to walk around with out every one else here. I'm sure theres a few people I would not mind staying but other then that...No.

I do love animals though, I know Humans are animals but animals other then Humans I love.

Hi, Jess!!

Me, I can't stand people half of the time, they're ignorant and obnoxious. But I think I just expect more people to be like me, and I guess it's not their fault they are the way they are.

Without other people there would be no wars, no heartache, no social pressure, no greed, no embarassment, one would be free to do whatever he or she wants.

But on the other hand, we require others for food, clothing, medicine, entertainment, and protection. Imagine not being able to watch television, play video games, listen to music, or not having sex (masturbation can only go so far) all of those things require someone to operate or maintain.

We also need to have contact with other humans. Otherwise we would go insane (just look at Shinji at the end of End of Evangelion), or we would write poetry (like classic hermit Emily Dickinson).

Why do I suddenly feel the urge to spontaneously break into Monty Python's "The Galaxy Song"?

Whenever life gets you down, Mrs. Brown
And things seem hard or tough
And people are stupid, obnoxious or daft
And you feel that you've had quite eno-o-o-ough...

Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving
And revolving at 900 miles an hour
That's orbiting at 19 miles a second, so it's reckoned
A sun that is the source of all our power
The sun and you and me, and all the stars that we can see
Are moving at a million miles a day
In an outer spiral arm, at 40,000 miles an hour
Of the galaxy we call the Milky Way

Our galaxy itself contains 100 billion stars
It's 100,000 light-years side-to-side
It bulges in the middle, 16,000 light-years thick
But out by us it's just 3000 light-years wide
We're 30,000 light-years from galactic central point
We go round every 200 million years
And our galaxy is only one of millions of billions
In this amazing and expanding universe

The universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding
In all of the directions it can whiz
As fast as it can go, at the speed of light you know
Twelve million miles a minute and that's the fastest speed there is
So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure
How amazingly unlikely is your birth
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space
Because there's bugger all down here on Earth"
"To the rational mind, nothing is inexplicable...only unexplained."--The Doctor, "Doctor Who".

"Hell is other people" -Sartre
I don't know...I used to feel like that until I watched EoE. And I suppose it is true that anywhere can be heaven as long as you have the will to live.

Of course there's good. It's a matter of finding it that posses a problem.

Something that Instrumentality goes out of its way to demonstrate.

There are times, quite often, when I wish I could resign from the human race and join a more intelligent species.

I would love to just wake up in the morning, look over at her then go to the store in a city with no people in it. Only me and her..Life would be hard but so much more peaceful.
