The design of the entry plug gives Kaworu abstract "wings". Still an Angel this time? I don't doubt it.

Image
"Sound Only" isn't just for SEELE. Also, Asuka's cosmetics(?) are German. Facemask? Is she putting makeup on to wear inside the Eva?

Image
Gendo's godspace has multiple restaurantish tables, each with multiple seats. Hm.

I would also like to point out that he doesn't wear any Interface Headsets. And what else he would be?

I think the animators just put whatever girly stuff they could think about in there. Her mobile phone has a Nerve Euro logo on it's back. What level of detail!

I'm not sure what are you getting at with that one.

Maybe it's got more to do with Unit 06? :shrug: We may find out in 3.0.

Maybe it's where Gendo interviews new employees for Nerv? And that's all I've got.

A crumpled up tissue is girly?

UPDATE WITH NEW INTERESTING ITEM: Remember that thread discussing whether Eva design changes between the two films were retcons? I'm now leaning towards retcon. Tokyo-III seems to have the same geographical anomalies as Springfield.

Imo that's just the design of the Eva. He's still totally an angel.

IMO the more important detail is that she has a doll. In the original anime, she hated dolls, for obvious reasons. This could mean Asuka has a very different past than the one suggested in the animu(not to mention her last name LULZ).

So? Maybe he has a tea party with Seele every once and a while.

Really? I hadn't noticed that when it was her only character trait depicted in the movie.

Kaji's English is pretty terrible to begin with, but he calls Boneiel the "Third Angels". I'm currently wondering how intentional that was considering NGE's "Children".

Well that makes a little more sense now that we can actually see the damn thing. Probably still Adam.

Yes.

BTW, confirmation that Asuka is indeed an anime character:

Lol, her hands are pulled as far back as that 2nd set of hands Bardiel grows on his back.

Don't have the screencap, but Asuka's cellphone uses one of Evastore's stickers for the iphone with the LCL sea on it.

in my first look through the 2.22 i noticed so many little differences that could bo so important, that i might dig them up tommorow, but one thing stroke me like a thunder:

After Unit-02 Backflip thing, does the original scene after that really looking crappy, or is it just my and my rip?

Nevertheless im pretty happy, most changes buffed up the clarity and gave us more Details to enjoy ( like different face of Shinji while pulling zeruels arm right before power goes off, or completely different sound after kaoru interrupts the 3I sequence..).

But i dig that up later, there really many things to be found. :w00:

EDIT:

Okay i list somethings up before i forget them , a rewatch with notebook will cost time so here it comes. (NOt in Order)

-Sahaquiel in his first form is darker , more shadows, more Blurr-effect on the edge

- Sahaqiels small err arms? are black now

- I think the addet that blurr effekt in the ZABEASTO mode in the Entry plug

While activating Za beasto, you can notice how those regulators of the plugsuit are moving on the (left) shoulder (like its making the plug suit tighter?) and no i dont talk about the green glowing things. dont know if it was too in 2.0, but i noticed that in 2.22 first.

- That Zoom on maris Eye while eating the layers of zeruels AT field , and that thing many people thought was her eye blinking sideways or some sort of that, is actually her Glassbreaking ( so no super Allien theorys to advance her , see what i did there?!11)

-While Shinji is sitting in the Death train after Bardiel- Fight you can notice how he has his earplugs first in his ears, only too see that a few seconds after that his player is above him and now anymore attached to him + im sure they added generally somthing in that scene that i cant pull of right now( of course that thing is a stylistic device by anno, Shin seiki should please analyze this in his surely coming PHD work about Rebuild of EVA)

-While bardiel is infeting unit 1, you can see that in that places which change to blue colour, there are growing some kind of Metal Ladder, and not in Order, just randomizes growing ( any meaning behind that?)

- Did those second pair of Bardiel arms look like Asuka`s arms WITH plugsuit at the shoulder part? ( i know they looked human and probably like asukas in 2.0 before)

- They added lots of Sparks and stuff like that ( e.g. unit one running to sahaquiel on the route chaning system, Zeruel blowing the upper geofront with his shot , many electricity sparcs)

- Adding of more glowing edges at the space shot of unit 4(?) exploding
+ Same kind of Edge glowing at the Impact start sequence at the end on the halo of Unit 01

- While seeing Unit -03 beeing lifted up to hiss (her ;P) transoport to Japan you can see that it is going too fly through Clouds which are stormy an many thunders are happening (like in the series , the Omen of something bad too happen or actually the place where the contamination happens?)

- Zeruel after merging with Unit 00 is glowing like a rainbow in the transistion phase of the Body

Well that should be it, after looking through it once more i may find even more stuff ( or maybe BD will have some little differences to DVD too?)

Over and out

( sorry for grammar, writing this post very late and very nervous due too beeing hyperhigh after watching RoE 2.22 )

^That post is comprehensive, but should be in the "new scenes" thread instead of this one...

As I was just discussing in the IRC, text that is now visible in the DVD rip shows that "Acheron" is actually Akron. "Acheron" makes a lot more sense in the context of Cocytus and Styx, but... but it's spelled Akron. This could either be a mistake, as Akron is also an existing proper noun, or it could possibly be a double reference to the 1979 giant robot anime Future Robo Daltanius, in which the enemy alien army comes from the star cluster Akron. Consensus in the IRC was that it was a mistake, but I wouldn't be surprised either way.

I know there's a connection here somewhere... but I'm too tired to speculate. :(

The 4 Crosses during Second impact
Image

The 4 crosses are still there in 2015
Image

The 4 "Adams" each has a different symbol. A 6 point star? A circle. A circled dot(the sun symbol?) and the last has a third eye.
Image

Eva 01 has a third eye.
Image

And this.
Image

My hack job.
Image

Finally unrelated but interesting to note, Rei's collar reads "Rei 02"

Skikes, you've done us a great service. Thank you.

EDIT: Keep in mind we have no evidence that the new movies take place in 2015.

And don't miss that the moon-- which appears black-- is thrust into space.
