Just throwing my two cents out here...Sorry I'm not directly answering your question, but I was thinking of the pre and post time skip picture issue over the weekend. Since Q takes up 33% of the Rebuild series so far, I think there really has to be a post skip picture somewhere in the bio box. I like your idea of the collapsible image, but I was also thinking of adding the post time skip image to the bottom of the box, kinda like how Wikipedia will have an alternative album cover under the info box for an album... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/What_Difference_Does_It_Make%3F

Also, there's the option of jamming the pre and post time skip images right next to each other in the bio box, but I don't think that would be too aesthetically pleasing....

Well, I managed to make work a collapsing image thanks to the "mw-collapsible" div class, as you can see in the bio box here : http://wiki.evageeks.org/Misato_Katsuragi#In_Rebuild

Gentlemen, I think I have spotted an issue with the Reichu subs of the platinum DVDs, v3

At the end of the textfile for ep 16 reads the following. I believe the text I have highlighted in bold belongs to somewhere else, possibly episode 16 itself, episode 20 or even EoE?

Shinji:
The smell of blood won't come off.

TEXT:
To Be Continued

*****

(ED)

Rei (OFF):
Do you love me?

Asuka (OFF):
Hey, you wanna kiss?

Misato (OFF):
Why don't you become one with me?

Rei (OFF):
Who are you?

Asuka (OFF):
Loneliness?

VOICES:
If you become one both in mind and body,
it's a very, very comforting feeling.
Pleasure... Sky of reality... Cruel strangers...
Do you want me?
Do you love me?
Do you love me?


*****

TEXT:
Preview

Misato (OFF):
Eva Unit 04, which was being built in America,
vanished along with Nerv's 2nd Branch.
This incident forces them to select a new Eva pilot.
Next episode: "The Fourth Qualified Individual"

Episode's 16 ED has a couple of women saying those lines in an intimate/soft manner while Fly Me To The Moon plays. When it comes the time for the lyrics, the three women start singing.

IIRC the women are Rei, Misato and Asuka's seiyuus.

This article on name origins needs to be updated for new information and for tone. It's a bit . . . cheeky.

The tone is Anno's own rather jocular posting style. The parts that are (translations of) Anno's words should perhaps be called out more obviously.

Not touching that article's wording at all - it was lifted entirely from the Geektionary and Anno's interview and has 'legacy' value to it. However, I colored Anno's text purple and Reichu's commentary green.

We link to the Warships in Evangelion page in lieu of a separate name origins page, since we don't have information on the names of several Rebuild characters just yet (Sakura, for instance).

I added Anno's essay on Gundam in the "Statements by Evangelion Staff" page. Please tell me if there are any changes that need to be made to this. Thank you.

Does anybody have the Animerica articles about The End of Evangelion or is it at least good as a resource? Magazine link here: http://www.amazon.com/dp/1569318999/

I believe I have the very issue that the article appeared in a box somewhere (I think it was the September 2002 issue). May I ask what do you need them for?

I was curious if it'd be a good addition to our old Resources: Main page.

Speaking of, does that need some kind of overhaul? The content is definitely important as is to be archived, but maybe we should reorganize the page so it's not as messy?

I'm a bit fuzzy on the exact details, but I believe there is an interview with Amanda Winn Lee as part of the coverage. Maybe this weekend I'll dig it up and see what's there. And perhaps I'll post a summary here or send you a PM if that's all right with you.

Speaking of old magazine articles, a few months ago, I found that a man by the name of Lance Heiskell(who works for Funimation) maintains a blog called Practice Makes Awesome, where he has put up ads and some features from old anime magazines of the late 1980s and 1990s. I was searching through them and came across the June 1995 issue of Animerica. Is this issue, they have a little blurb on Eva (I think this is different than the article mentioned by Carl Horn in volume 10 of the manga). Beside the article, they had a few images of Shinji, Unit 01, & Asuka (though she is misidentified as Rei). The article also has a few words from Anno. This is the article I'm talking about.

I think features like these could be good for the resources page. When I mentioned these to OMF, he stated (I think) that these blurbs were often translated from Japanese anime mags such as Animage & Newtype. So the question would be if it's better to get the original Japanese articles or not.

After an update of the page about the equipments(B-type, F-Type...), I was wondering, can we add the "WILLE armor type"?
It could be presented as an upgrade of the classical B-Type, and maybe add the one neo-NERV uses for its Evas too?(Mark.09 and EVA-13)

But Wille upgraded Eva-02 and Eva-08, hence the Beta and Gamma designations - so that might very well be the B-type equipment for the upgraded Evas. There's no clear information on that.

As for Mark.09 and Eva-13, both are weird as hell - a regenerating full-body core Eva plus a surviving Adam with four arms. Does their armor really classify as equipment? Mark.09 grew back more than a head - it grew back a sort of helmet to go with the head!

If the Beta and Gamma designation means that the Eva itself(as if the organic part) got modification, and their armors are the B-type equivalent, that still make them Eva equipments.
But since we don't have any info yet until the CRC is released, we could add them as "WILLE Armor type" used as standard for the upgraded WILLE Evas, until we get more precises informations.

As for Mark.09, I admit that it's a too weird Eva to make assumptions(after all the whole body flashes "core-ish" when regenerating after Kitty EVA-02 chomp off its neck)

But for EVA-13, even with fact that it had extra arms and its an ADAM, there is no indication that it's not wearing a regular armor, after all Mark.06 too had to be armored, and it was an ADAM as well.
We could cut the apple in half and call EVA-13's armor "neo-NERV Armor type", and say that Mark.09's body follow the same pattern of armor, even thought due to its nature as a full-body core, we are not sure if its really wearing an armor or an "imitation" that it wear so WILLE won't realize its an ADAM's Vessel.

It'd probably be good to have the actual Japanese articles as a resource/backup but that English article looks good, I think.

Well, I dug up that old issue of Animerica (September 2012) that had coverage of EoE. I'll give a brief summary of the contents. The primary focus of the article was three essays on EoE of varying lengths. One by Patrick Macias, one by Andrew Osmond, and one by Mark Simmons. There are also two insert pieces both by Mark Simmons. One discusses the connection between Eva and the works of Harlan Ellison while the second is a brief analysis of episodes 25 & 26 of the TV series. The final part is an interview of Amanda Winn-Lee by Kelli Blackwell. AWL discusses various topics such as the process of translating EoE and her own interpretations of the film (for example, she states the now-defunct "Asuka at the end of the movie is her, Rei & Misato rolled into one" theory, which means if she didn't originate the theory, she might have popularized it). If anyone thinks these essays or the AWL interview might contatin anything of use, I might be able to get around to transcribing them sometime this winter. There are other things, both on the wiki as well as real life, that are ahead of the line.

cyharding: I think it'd be a useful resource to have, but please take your time if you have other commitments. No rush at all. :)

I'm forgetting, do we have a wiki page of different Eva books/manga? This page is a good resource if we don't.

Yes, there is a page about the other publications of Evangelion, here.
It's also accessible on the main page.
