Please name the "stupid shit" that Sadamoto made happen in Eva then...
Besides you talked as if Sadamoto needs to be "let" to touch Eva. Sadamoto has as much right to touch Eva as Anno, man....

I am happy with what I have with the manga...Anyway, many confused the psychedelic trip Shinji went through in EoE as character development when it was more a huge philosophical dissertation doing the rounds...so I won't miss them in the manga Besides many haters didn't like the manga before this point to begin with, right?

And they can all be official. AT LEAST ANNO IS NOT TRYING TO TAKE CONTROL OF EVERYTHING EVA -- One credit to him !!
[size=8]And calling that Shinji Shinji-sama seems off -- as off as Asuka misunderstanding Shinji...
Hmmm... This change in plot confirms to me that the manga is a different continuity, inasmuch as with Rebuild and the original TV series.
Q) Are the TV ending and Film ending the same conclusion to the saga?
A) In my view - No.
In the TV ending Shinji chose to stay with Complementation - it isn't even clear that Shinji had a choice at all. He is treated as little more than an example of the process of Complementation - which consisted if breaking down Shinji's link to reality. In the end, Shinji looks at the world of Complementation and smiling happily says "I understand! I can exist here!" He is then congratulated for his decision, by friends living and dead (Kaji), a healthy Touji with his leg still on, and even PenPen. A surreal ending scene to say the least. This ending is similar in context and theme to the ending of George Orwell's book, 1984.
Conversely, the film ends in the opposite manner. Shinji does have a choice and in the last moments of the film utterly rejects Complementation precisely because it eliminates the link to reality, it establishes a false paradise. Complementation is basically a cop-out, and Shinji has matured enough to realize this. The tone at the end of the film isn't a surreal, almost drug-induced, joyful "Congratulations!" for Shinji, but the cold and harsh reality of life.
Further, the Newtype Filmbook description for the scene states (literally):
"Amidst the many words of congratulations, a faint smile starts at the corners of Shinji's mouth (and spreads across his face).
A happy face -- that is the figure of the Complemented Shinji. This conclusion is also one form, one possibility among many."
(Translated by Bochan Bird)
Note, "the figure of the Complemented Shinji". Pretty cut and dry.
That's what I'd like to see, given where we are now, but somehow I don't see Sadamoto putting Asuka at the centre of 3I, alas.
