I'm somewhat disappointed that it's all being the same... Shinji freaking out somehow lacks it's thunder without the events before; Witnessing the GNR was just the last straw in the Anime - Of course, it's still creepy, especially the MP EVAs, but it doesn't feel right that the reaction is almost the same...
It feels like it's cheapening what happened in the movie/what originally brought forth that reaction.
Also, Asuka seems to have been completely forgotten about.
What was the point in having her live, again? Not like I want her to get ripped to pieces, but I expected the fact that she lived to have, you know, some Impact on the story.
Wouldn't she, like, question all the weirdness or try to do stuff about it?
...if Sadamoto's gonna follow classic TI, he better explain why Shinji, especially Manga!Shinji, would blow up the world while Asuka's still in it?
Then again, if he just cancels it all on the spot... that would be rather anticlimatic.
Oh, and did you notice how Shinji stole Rei's pose?
Shinji: Nope! It was always me in the ending! Can't you tell? I'm the protagonist!
Asuka: *has gotten herseld some tea and cookies to wait untill sadamoto remembers that she's still there* *sips her tea* Yeah, right.
Mari: *also sipping tea**probably the one who brought it*
Hey, Puppy-kun, how about you tell Rei that you desire that she tells the mangaka to include Asuka in the story? Or at least send her home?"
Asuka: Yeah, you know, I still have to shoot some action scenes for You can not redo tomorrow and it takes, like, forever, to put all the tape on the plugsuit so I have to get up early.
(Well, at least, we might find out whom Asuka would have seen had she been tanged regularly... then again, the question is wether that can be applied to Classic!Asuka or Shikinami... let's wait and see. My money is on Kaji. )
