Of all the people to worry about . . .
Seriously, there's plenty more where she came from. Why get bent out of shape about it when she can easily be replaced?

As a result, I thought I would get other people, outsiders, to help me destroy it - Tsurumaki in particular. In addition, there's parts of myself that are different compared to that time. So, I tried to change [Eva]. It was a battle with my so-called past self, my self eleven years ago. It took a great deal of inner strength.

Because "Rebuild of Evangelion" is basically a reconstruction of the TV series, we presume that sooner or later Rei II will die. If Shinji-kun were to save Rei II it would mean a significant departure from the TV series.
Rei gets completely absorbed by the Angel. It's just as though she has died and entered the netherworld. The audience is thinking that Rei is dead. Despite this, Shinji pilots Unit-01 again in order to save Rei. He cries out "Ayanami!" and reaches forward, with an awful noise, through the front of the entry plug.
I felt the development of the second half of the TV series was incredible. Only, I was a little saddened by death of Rei II and her replacement by Rei III. For myself, I wanted that Rei who had repeatedly shared battles and encounters with Shinji to go on to the end.
Rebuild is to be a testimony of his triumph, just as NGE was of his failures.

If Rei III doesn't change so much, then I wouldn't mind. But in NGE, I felt aggravated that she "survived", and didn't remember much. In other words, I would prefer that she didn't die, because I wanted to see how much Rei II would progress as a character, rather then see her get so far, just to die, and start all over again.

Though, please point it out if I missed it.

But the thing is, she didn't disappear and die in the same circumstances as in the original; the events were done in a more upbeat tone (with the whole Shinji + Rei sequence) but even with it's optimistic ending(Rei getting supposedly saved) I still believe that the whole sequence was in vain and that Rei II really was lost.
My bad, I didn't mean the sequence as a whole, just the Shinji saving Rei part.Bagheera wrote:Optimistic . . . ? Did you miss the part about near-Third Impact?
Seriously, if your reaction didn't mirror Misato's during that sequence you weren't paying attention. That wasn't optimistic at all. That was "Yeah, go Shinji!" followed by "Wait a minute, that ain't right . . . " followed by "Oh shit, what are we gonna do now?"
Near-Third Impact is bad! Pay attention!
