But the blood of LCL could come from Adam as well. In "NGE", the sea in Antartica was red. While the sea was blue everywhere else. I think Anno wanted to correct that, and make the sea red in "Rebuild." Kinda like how Ridley Scott changed the blue sky into a darker sky color for the final cut of "Blade Runner." Something that Ridley wanted to correct, but didn't have the time, nor the money to do it at that time. Anno could be doing something simular.


Adam's blood isn't LCL, no matter which way you slice it. What makes LCL what it is is that it flows from Lilith's vergina.

That's the thing though--it's possible that that stuff just looks like LCL but is actually Adam's blood as well as the combined LCL of the people that died in 2I.

That's how I sorta see it at least.

(crap did that make sense? )

That makes sense, indeed in the original series the ocean in Antarctica also turned red. Also, the blood streak on the moon could plausibly be from the 2nd Lilith's menstruating, not from Rei/Lilith in EoE.

Frankly, I'm afraid of that, because the "sequel theory" is really cool. But also there's just more hints leaning towards the sequel theory, i.e. why is there a 2nd Lilith? We shall see...

Unfortunately not. People weren't bursting into tang at 2I, they were being killed by global flooding and climate change, plus conflicts the world over. If Adam turned into a monster and then turned to blood, it would make sense...just don't include the poor Lilin denizens of planet Earth in the creation of that awful red stuff.

Hints? What hints? :um-no:

And besides, the series does not depend on one fan's interpretation of it. For the sequel theory we have one pinch conjecture and a gazillion tons of balderdash.

Ursus: But note how in episode 12 (IIRC) in the South Pole, Gendou and Fuyutsuki are in an LCL Sea (at least that's what it looks like, a screencap would be nice ;_; ) from the people that died in 2I.

Yeahp, you're right, in the top-secret video you can hear that adam is making an anti-atfield, and then you see some clothing weaving arround in the wind.

You know what would be really funny? If rebuild ended in a way that made it unclear whether or not this is a sequal and we were left debating it forever!. :kaos_akuma:

Hahaha, I can't believe I didn't think of that possibility. XD

At least, if that were the case, nobody would be forced to accept the fact that it's a sequel...

...at least, until the Wevangeliwons game comes out and Anno reveals that it actually is...

This will probably happen if Rebuild in factuality isn't a sequel.

Everyone will keep believing this is a sequel to the series....

until the final film comes out and suddenly Anno makes it clear that REBUILD OF EVANGELION is against all logic...

I noticed, I noticed. The ocean is all red, just like what happened to all of Earth post-3I. I'm questioning the idea that the Katsuragi expedition and various other unfortunate lifeforms were responsible for the change in color. It could have been voodoo by Adam that didn't spread beyond Antarctica- the whole area is void of microbial life, after all.

I'm not sure how any of the people at ground zero would get turned into LCL, since they'd all be vaporized by Adam's explosion. Other organic life outside of the direct blast perimeter might go splat, though. But I wonder if LCL as we think of it would actually exist there at all, since Adam was reconfiguring some of the local elements on the submicroscopic level.

Just a thin suspension of souls in some indeterminate fluid, I figured.

Offtopic for Webuild, so end it there I suppose.

The first movie is rather blatant with its hint that 2I involved Adam popping like a balloon of blood, so I don't think very much about similarities to NGE's 3I beyond Anno messing with us.

As for that chalk outline: Entry File 1 suggests that it has something to do with Second Impact. (Most I can get out of a quick glance.)

Well, as i said before...

In the top-secret video you can hear someone saying that adam is making an anti-ATfield, and then you see some clothing weaving arround in the wind.
