I couldn't figure out how to display the pics, but I thought the shuttle Gendo and Fuyutsuki used when they visited the Tabgha Lunar Base (while checking out Unit-06 in 2.22) looked similar to the Eagle Transporter vessel from Space 1999. Maybe someone a little more tech savvy than me could post some images for a comparison.

Enough people have made that connection now that I think we can say it's a very likely homage (given all the other Gerry Anderson shout-outs in both films and series).

I saw it somewhere but I don't think it was here.

EDIT: Discussion between Xard and I merged from here into this current thread.

So apparently (supposedly, seeing as I haven't seen either, just going on hearsay) 2.0 references both Utena and Ultraman Nexus with the
Major  SPOILER: Show
main character pulling somebody out of a void. Pics of the Ultraman sequence reveal they look frame-for-frame. I have no idea regarding Utena.


Just wondering if either of these were going to be added or if the new films have their own references section on the wiki.

Entirety of 2.0 confirmed as Ultraman reference. Including all the references to other shows.

the part where

SPOILER: Show
Shinji breaks into the black space where Rei is trapped and holds out his hand etc. is frame to frame and nearly line to line homage to fantastic scene is Utena.

Resolution of the scene is different, but apart from that it's obvious homage to his good old pal Ikuhara by Anno

Mugwump: Goddamn it, Xard! Take me in your arms, you magnificent sex god bastard!
And don't forget to wear the Ran mask.

Gob Hobblin: Sanctimonious, subtly racist, vaguely misogynist, somehow says something while at the same time saying...nothing, really, at all....

Nice, Xard. That's nice.

Here's the Ultraman/2.22 comparisons since I forgot it earlier: http://www.tesuji.org/images/eva2.0_finale.jpg (Again, spoilers.)

A pic by pic comparison with Utena would be nice too. I think it would do good to have a 1.0/2.0 films references section.

Time to dust off those remastered Utena DVDs!

Here's a first draft. Obviously, the comparison with Ultraman is much more fitting, but still, there is definitely some Ikuhara inspiration here.

It'd be pretty funny if Anno was trying to reference Ultraman but ended up accidentally making the scene more similar to Utena.

I think 2.0 is meant to be referencing to both, no reason why it can't be*. :shrug:

Interesting stuff, thanks ath!

*Anno loves his Ultraman, while Ikuhara was the staff member (at least Anno "nabbed" Ogata and Mitsuishi :lol: ) he wanted to bring over from Sailor Moon after all:

[url]http://wiki.evageeks.org/Resources:Character_Name_Origins[/url] wrote:Ayanami is from a warship of the former Japanese navy. Rei is just a pun of 零 [Rei, "zero"], but actually named after Rei Hino of Sailor Moon. At the time, this was a bait to invite Iku-chan to the staff, but he ran away. Too bad.

* "Iku-chan" refers to Kunihiko Ikuhara, who directed the anime adaptation of Naoko Takeuchi's manga Sailor Moon.


Apparently, Ikuhara had a lot of interesting ideas for the Sailor Moon SuperS movie which made their way into Utena instead.

Didn't see it mentioned here, but I apologize if anyone already listed it in another thread. There is a scene from 1.11 right at the beginning of Operation Yashima when Misato gives the order to commence charging the positron rifle. At just around thirty seconds into the following clip, we see a series of electrical transformers going online (basically, it looks like a bunch of metal rods rotating ninety degrees). Here's a link I found: [url]http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoid=35243845[/url]

I noticed a very similar apparatus in use during a scene from Episode 4 of Gunbuster when the Exelion's captain gives the command to engage the warp engine. I found the following link (the scene occurs about 10 minutes and 27 seconds into the episode):

- Asuka's slutsuit might be a reference to the even more revealing suits of Muvluv. Linked pic is borderline NSFW, by the way, and the related images even more so.

- When Zeruel first appears, its core is exposed in a way that makes it look like a classic zeonic monoeye from Gundam.

Not sure this is necessarily Rebuild-specific - but it is Enokido, after all.

Resuming my long overdue need to watch Utena, for obvious reasons. I know there have been a few mentions of NTE making homages to Utena here and there, but didn't see this one (I assume there's a ton more in store for me to be on the look out for now):

Episode 9 Utena:
