If Kaworu has the same haxxor powers he had in NGE, he could simply disable the self-destruct mechanism upon his arrival at Nerv HQ. But if he does still work that way, why does he even need an Eva?

Not joking. The Children leave Earth a la Childhood's End and start a more deliberate existence on La Luna, which is where Shinji, Asuka, Mari and Rei all began before descending to the Antarctic and making contact with Misato as the giants of light. Only they are incompatible with our world; their presence causes the Impact-effects (blood ocean, rainbow gravity well at South Pole, etc) so they have to leave it, which results in a cessation of the Impact-effects worldwide.

3.0 ends with Misato staring into the sky and promising she'll build a bridge to the stars, or at least to the moon, anyway.

Sho' nuff.

Kaworu exchanged haxxor for superior firepower.
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 can already envision a traditional rom-com anime set on the Moon. This could work out well if Gainax/Khara plays its cards right.

Don't forget about Shinji's cousin.

Also, Kaworu doesn't swing that way, so he's out in the cold and Shinji's happy like a pig in shit.

Come to think of it, those ladies do amount to a typical anime harem. Huh. And hey, Kaworu can be the jealous yandere!

Kaworu: I will make you happy, Shinji-kun! I swear it!
Shinji: Mmmm, boobies.

Even better if someone -- Rei maybe, or possibly Asuka depending on how things play out -- is stuck on Kaworu, who of course couldn't care less. :lol:

Shinji lunges from the lunar habitat to catch his breath and a quick smoke, and restore some of his body mass with fruit that hadn't been 'pre-dipped' into some girl...
...only to have Kaworu tackles him and commences with butt fun.

Shinji: (cries) I'm not even a person anymore!

5 years later:

Misato arrives and embraces Shinji.
Shinji: Oh thank christ, its been so long, they just keep fucking and fucking and this rapid regeneration thing means we don't ever have to stop! My world is nothing but pressure and dripping orifices and empathetic AT Field malformations...
He notices Misato is rubbing his back suggestively.
Shinji: ...oh. Great.

People that were earlier talking about seeing the words "Eva-13" in one that still frame, apparently Minna No Eva Fan sees the words "Eva-0" and "Eva-2" in it:

http://neweva.blog103.fc2.com/blog-entry-1905.html

He(?) also thinks it could be the number "13" or "18" though.

:shrug:

And the "moon harem" scenario would be especially hilarious if Rei fell for Kaworu, but he was oblivious towards her due to Shinji. :lol:

Rei can use her mad cooking skillz to make a lunch box for Kaworu.
(That strategy worked pretty well for Shinji didn't it?)

*edit*
SSD: They appear to say it's "in the same style" as eva-00 or eva-02, and it's probably eva-13 or eva-18.

Just three more days and this madness will finally end, I'm sure I still have to see its apex though.

I'm not seeing it. I can see how that might be a 13, but the comparisons to 02 or 00 don't match up at all.

And the "moon harem" scenario would be especially hilarious if Rei fell for Kaworu, but he was oblivious towards her due to Shinji. :lol:


I know, right? So we have Shinji after Asuka, Kaworu after Shinji, and Rei after Kaworu. At that point Mari and Pinkie probably hook up for the lulz and Shinji's cousin is left wondering what the hell is doing on.

Oh, even better! Shinji thinks he's in a love triangle with Rei and Asuka, but unbeknownst to him they're both fighting over Kaworu -- Shinji thinks it's about him, since Kaworu's always chasing after him and CIRCUMSTANCES, and the girls don't have the heart to shoot him down since it would piss off Kaworu. Meanwhile Mari and Pinkie are making out as described above, providing color commentary on the whole situation, while Shinji's cousin is the one girl who really loves Shinji . . . but of course he doesn't even notice, leaving her alone and forlorn. :raincloud:

Will Shinji get a clue and hook up with his cousin? Will Rei and Asuka realize their chase is futile and hook up with one another? Will Kaworu break and go bi? And if so, which girl will he pick? DRAMA!!! :lol:

Minnano posted the Eva-00 and -02 logos as visual comparison, to show how the image in the trailer could reasonably be "EVA-13" in a similar style. (See also what Fluffy pointed out.)

In the final cut of that trailer, where Eva-02 is becoming crater-pocked, there are things that look kind of like 10th Angel tentacles in the background. Part of the Angel?
What if... Kaworu bonded with Misato instead of Shinji, and the two of them were siblings?

Alone in a hole with no technology, blue skies, water, fields and other people/buildings?

I'd rather have them sent through a Transgate to Mid-Childa! :jiggy:

As with Eva 13, we can officially confirm 1. Code Geass style ending :peace: or 2. The harpies are BACK! :argh:

Well, this provides evidence of at most five additional Evas following Eva-08 (09, 10, 11, 12, 13). Not quite a flock of harpies (nine completed; twelve intended). With all the production time going into the movies, khara can reasonably give this bunch all unique -- or, at least, variable -- designs this time around, too. I bet Yamashita would enjoy that. (He actually had his own take on dummy plug Evas that never got used; wonder if any of the design elements from that will end up getting recyced.)

Absolutely nothing. You can't confirm anything until the movie's actually out, so ease off on the wild speculation masquerading as fact.
