It has been noted that each Angel comes in with a new tactic, and that this new tactic often revolves around covering for the weakness of the last Angel.
I don't see how instability would try to explictly kill Ritsuko at both times.
It didn't. First time, Ritsuko. Second time, Rei.
I don't get you
Then I'll make this simpler. Look at us human beings. Do we all live in the Hakone region? No. We live all over the damn planet. When it was still on the table for the FAR to be terrestrial (that is, living on Earth), they would have done the same thing.
In the original proposal Rei also has black hair
Cosmetic (and blue is visible in this hair, it's not straight up black)
and many characters where missing (Maya ect)
Only the bridge bunnies aren't present. Missing, or just unmentioned because they're completely irrelevant to just about everything?
or have major differences.
Fuyutsuki's age change and the mention of Gendo's overall plans are the only major differences I see.
Does that mean that they just thought of these differences on the fly during the development of ep 1? Proposal was created in 1993. 2 years of development had passed by the time of the airing of the actual series. Proposal has nothing to do with the final version and they shouldn't be compared by no means-
Yes, because a TV show that follows the first twelve episodes very closely and has interviews confirming that the biggest change (episode 4) was made up ON THE FLY clearly has nothing to do with its successor. As nearly every episode up to 22 can be traced to one of Proposal's episodes, it is obvious that it had a major effect on development.
You don't know that and you can't back it up. Rei's hair, skin and eye color are there to signify her difference from the other characters (as the staff says).
Like the way she has no parents, an element of Proposal?
Kaworu posesses the exact same traits and some of them (like red eyes) are evident from the opening.
Uh.... You do realize that everything is red in that opening, right? Looking at that picture, his eyes COULD be blue, there's no way to tell.
People are only basing themselves on the storyboard's mentioning of "Adam" whereas screens earlier, Kaworu tells Rei "you and I are the same."
And the drafts of 24 where Adam is in Terminal Dogma, and the bit in Episode 13 where Adam, not Lilith is mentioned, you know, stuff like that.
Rei's poem also suggests the existance of two moons.
Care to point out the lines that do so? For ease of use, here's Rei's poem.
Mountain, heavy are the mountains
But that changes, with the passage of time
Sky, blue sky, what your eyes can't see, what your eyes can see
The sun, one, only one
Water, it is agreeable, Commander Ikari
Flowers, so many the same, so many without purpose
Sky, sky of red, red the color, the color I hate
Liquid flows, it drips, ripples, and pours
Blood, scent of blood, woman who does not bleed
From the red soil the humans come
Humans made by man and woman
City, a human creation
Eva, a human creation as well
What are humans?
Are they creations of God?
Humans, that which is created by humans
This is that which is mine
My life, my heart
I am a vessel for my thoughts
The entry plug, the throne of the soul
Who is this? This is me
Who am I? What am I? What am I? What am I?
I am I.
This object that is, is myself
That which forms me
This is the self that can be seen, and yet this is not like that which is myself
A strange feeling
My body feels as if it is melting
I can no longer see myself
My form, my shape fades from view
Awareness dawns of someone who is not me
Who is here? There? Beyond me, here
This person I know, Major Katsuragi
People, my classmates
The pilot of Unit Two
Who are you? Who are you? Who are you?
As you say, "until Gainax knew Lilith was part of the story". Gainax most of the time don't know siet about Anno's intentions for the background story (not that he knows much himself, but well, he knows something more).
I meant Gainax in the context of the whole studio, including Anno. It's obvious Anno knew Lilith existed in Episode 24, maybe even Episode 23. Did he know about her before then?
He holds stuff into himself even in Rebuild, where they were trying to make him tell them what Gendo's plan with Rei and Shinji actually was and he would only hint them.
Wow. Way to go Anno, make it hard for your group effort to accomplish anything, since proper foreshadowing and characterization are impossible without knowing a plan.
That explains the mentioning of the giant as Adam during the storyboard, and it really is no biggie to me.
Explain the scripts, explain Episode 13.
And I don't believe that Anno is such a genious to pull everything out of his arse in the last minute.
Considering how plot holes in 24' have been bugging people for years, the real thing you shouldn't be believing is that Anno is such a genius to pull everything out of his ass coherently
