If I'm remembering correctly, Eva "handguns" only featured in the original series during the battle with Leliel. I'd be surprised to see that one pop up in Rebuild, though. I take the point about it making them look less imposing. This new Eva seems somewhat sleeker than the other models, which may explain why it uses a less flashy weapon. If it belongs to Mari, an offensive strategy based on speed and stealth would make sense.

Because she's like... stealthy like Nardo right?
SO THERE I WAS BEING KUBO, WHEN THE EDITORS CAME IN AND WERE LIKE "YOU NEED TO DO MORE THAN PANELS OF WHITE PILLARS AND BLACKGROUNDS!" AND I WAS LIKE "FUCK YOU, I'M KUBO!" SO THEY WERE LIKE "WELL HOW ABOUT SOMEBODY DYING?" AND I WAS LIKE "FUCK YOU, I'M KUBO!" AND I MADE LOTS AND LOTS OF MONEY. I LOVE MY LIFE.

I know not this "Nardo". Wikipedia informs me that it "is a town and comune of 31,185 inhabitants and comune in the southern Italian region of Apulia, in the province of Lecce." If this is the Nardo you were referring to, then no, I don't find it stealthy at all. It is easily locatable in southern Italy.

Maybe Strato is referring to Leonardo from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles but I'm not sure about it. Nardo is the Italian name of a Pokemon character too, Alder, but it doesn't seem to be really fitting, also it would make little sense unless Strato is Italian (I understand that they kept the original name for the English version while other European countries changed it differently).

It's still about ninjas, I was close enough!
Talking about the handgun again, I wonder what's the advantage of using a similar weapon with a giant robot, Lilin-sized ones offer obvious concealment advantages but a giant one just seems to be there because they can make it (It reminds me of SRW too, G-handgun anyone?).
EDIT: could it be a backup weapon mounted on the Eva itself pretty much like the progressive knife?

That's as good a guess as any. Maybe Mari already exhausted all of the ammo in her BFG.

Looks like only Reichu's heard about that joke. But yeah, how the fuck is Mari stealthy? Her strategy is "LOLSPARTA" or more like "LOLBEASTO".

The trailer made me hope it could be something similar to the Xth Form of Haseo from .hack//G.U. - moving around at high speeds and going shoot-crazy. To me, that'd fit her skill level and her more berserk style. (Though dual-wielding pistols would be more like the Xth form, and from the trailer it doesn't look like it'll be close to Xth Form's movements at all...)

There's too much levity and not enough seriousness around here, guys. That's this forum's problem and we should really cut it out.

Well, she did manage to enter Japan and launch an Eva behind Nerv's back. Granted, that was in spite of the Shinji thing, but she can hardly be blamed for that. Shinji's wussiness magnetizes hot girls. Not her fault.

On the handgun thing, maybe it's utilized to combat a flying Angel, as was (thought to be) the case in NGE.

Saw the trailer today during lunchtime and loved it! Can't wait its' release down here!
But... I got my own questions (yes, I know - Evangelion was made to actually CREATE questions, not ANSWER THEM! :blahblah:) -

1.) The pink, many-eyed EVA shown, would that be EVA-08 (mentioned earlier during RoE 2.0 = the "definitive EVA")?

2) Where the heck is EVA-07 (if there'll ever be one)?

3) Just a comment - pirate-eyed Asuka looks cool!

Cheers! TFB.

p.s. -

WTF?! Hahahaha that darn kid is just TOO LUCKY... really. And he just seems just not know what to do when it comes to girls... OK, OK. He doesn't have a manly reference, since Gendou has abandoned him and/or Ryoji (who seems to be a friend) came into too late.

Yes it is, though it was redesigned slightly.

As for unit 07 we haven't seen it.

I don't know about the "definitive Eva" thing, but most people around here are assuming that the pink Eva is Unit-08 and that Mari is its pilot. The EvaWiki article on Unit-08 seems to think so, too.

Ugh, that's the site that plagiarized from EGF's wiki before... Either way I wouldn't trust that, we won't have a proper answer until a week from now anyway.

Why do you say that? We've never seen her and as I recall she's quite a bit younger than he is.
