I wouldn't put much faith in images from the next episode preview. At least for the first movie (preview of 2.0) they showed stuff that didn't actually happen in the movie.

Yeah. And all Anno specified in his little memo about that cut was to have Asuka with eyepatch and :3 - so I'd say it's probably a function of the artist in question.

The moment Shikinami actually becomes kawaii rather than just creepy enough a Soryu-doppelganger that I can like her is the moment i say "fuck this" and run to the hills

but then again i didn't think i could find Utena cute until the sketch scene in Adolescence so i'll give Anno a chance

Clearly they are harkening back to the 300 yen budget days of the series through needlessly sloppy animation.

Yes, but how is that related to Shikinami's eyes?

I was wondering about the same thing.


And I don't see what the spikes in the eye have to do with cheap animation, either.
"Asuka groaned, palming her face. "First? That's a bagel."
"You're supposed to eat it," Shinji assisted.
Rei looked at them, then back to Ikari-kun, taking in the surprising revelation. Cautiously, she placed her lips around the item in her hand and took a small bite. Wide-eyed, she beheld the bagel with a new reverence.
"You are delicious, Ikari-kun.""

What I think he was getting at was the fact that sloppy animators just wouldnt give enough of a damn to make a pupil the right shape and as a result, preview trolling occurs. But we're in Rebuild so as much as yes it IS anime and peoples eyes can be messed up in whatever way, In rebuild there would seem to be a purpose for every small detail, so if her eye is different than it was before, it's perfectly safe to assume that it has to do with 2.0 events. Or Anno is trolling.
