I always found that part of the original series very interesting and I'd hate to have it left unexplained this time around.

I'd be surprised if they won't show us any flashback about the 2nd Impact, but other than that I'm a little doubtful, even though I'd really like to see something about Yui's past and disappearance.

Personally I thought that they are escaping like fugitives after Nerv HQ has been seized by Seele.

Sure they are; didn't you notice that NERV standard-issue post-impact escape donkey?

Call me crazy, but I saw what looked like a slight smile on Gendo's face. So obviously, if they are escaping, things are still going according to plan. Again, that's assuming the simile is accurate and not a trick of my mind.

Doesn't look like they even tried to ride it off to wherever their adventure took them.
Please just call me Ian, "TheFrisky" is more of a title.

Even if Gendo/Fuyutsuki do escape, I'd love to see Nerv effectively defend itself against the army's ground assault this time. It would be a trip if the beginning of EOE played out again with the twist that the invaders get their asses handed to them.

Re: Gendo, Fuyutsuki and the donkey: maybe Gendo has been deposed, and he's looking for a way of getting his revenge?

Gendo: "I thought I'd wander the Earth. You know, like Caine in Kung Fu."

Fuyutsuki: "What will you do?"

I thought it was a flashback too, but now that I look at it, it seems to me that they are standing on a pile of rubble. Or I guess those are some really square rocks.

This is right on target. But seriously, I hope we get more info on Mari. Even after several rewatches, her role utterly confuses me.

I have a guess about Mari's (future) role, which I explained in a different thread:
[url]http://forum.evageeks.org/post/515284/Shinji-Asuka-and-Rei-Step-Down-for-the-New-Characters/?highlight=#515284[/url]
(The spoilered part is the prediction about Mari, but the rest of the post explains where my prediction is coming from.)

Later in the same thread, I expand some more on this prediction:
[url]http://forum.evageeks.org/post/515699/Shinji-Asuka-and-Rei-Step-Down-for-the-New-Characters/?highlight=#515699[/url]
(Currently the last post in the thread.)

The discussion in that thread has been mostly about the artistic methods and philosophy in making Rebuild, but I've used Mari as a very explicit example, that perhaps warrants its own discussion.

Some of that discussion also continues in this very thread (a few pages back):
[url]http://forum.evageeks.org/post/515375/Evangelion-30-Speculation/?highlight=#515375[/url]

I hope this helps.

Mari will get a heck of a lot more screentime & real stuff to do in the later films. If I recollect from interviews with Anno, Mari was originally an even smaller part of 2.0 in his original plans but he decided to include her in the final act when he decided to "break away" from NGE more.

Honestly I can't wait for 3.0. There's so much about it that promises it to be the best thing Evangelion since End of Evangelion. The story has distanced itself so much from NGE that there (hopefully) should be very little overlap with the original series this time around.

If 1.0 was about 90% a recreation of NGE & 2.0 was around 50%, then I can only hope 3.0 is 10% or less. The only real overlap with NGE they should have/need is the reveal of Rei being a clone & some Kaworu stuff.

Yeah, I want episode 24, but as for the rest: Anno, please surprise me!

The Interviews seem to have mentioned a few things about Mari having a large role in the third part, so yeah.

I'm incredibly stoked for Pirate Asukas space battle, I hope she just blasts the shit out of an Arismael look alike, and it'll be an incredible fight in which she gets her confidence way up as opposed to feeling like she's a burden to others

So does a cyborg Unit 02, I wonder if it'll have any new abilities in regards to Asukas new doo, firstly there's the eyepatch, anything could be under there in regards to angel specific power, and then there's the plug suit, I was going to say it was to do with the damage tha Unit 02 sustained in 2.22, since her left arm looked like it was bandaged (EoE ANYBODY) and her right flank had design features that from what I could (or couldnt for all that matter) see, were not on her left side, but then there's the matter of the eyepatch being on the opposite side.

Slightly off topic, but if she has an eyepatch, and she's synced with an Eva, can she not rely on the Eva's eyes to see as well?

Wasn't Eva-02 always a cyborg? (At least, for as long as she's been in meaningful deployment...)

Eva-02's eyes are completely covered, so Asuka would have a hard time seeing anything with them.
