EDIT: OMG, Lili! Welcome back! So, that collar thing was a hoax?@spiderman is cool:
do you mind it if we start asking some questions? Is it clear how
that collar was activated? What did you think of this Rei, some impression or more details about her? Lastly, the silly question: did they use An Die Freude/Ode to Joy?
Just had to look through the book I got at the theater to see if anything in it would help me on the collar activation because, frankly, I couldn't exactly tell how it got activated. Shinji tries to come over into Kawaru's side of the plug but is blocked off, is quite distraught when Kawaru goes boom too. Seems like they had some time to say their goodbyes at least.
As far as Rei goes, I'm definitely confused on this one. Once I get to see a translation I'm sure I'll have a better idea on what was going on with Rei. She was wearing a black plug suit in most of the movie. What's wierd is in the book that I have (everyone keeps posting pictures of it on here) Rei Ayanami is listed as "tentative name: Rei Ayanami" not sure what that's about. Also, there is a scene with Shinji playing Shogi with Fuyutsuki and you can see Yui, as well as about a million Rei body parts similair to the scene in the TV show. So I'm not exactly sure who the Rei is in this movie, but I'm going to assume it's the one that Shinji rescued at the end of 2.0.
And yes it does play Ode to Joy (or at least something very close to it, lots going on during that part) so it was pretty reminiscent of the scene in the TV show in that respect.
Sorry if that's not really clear, I am learning Japanese right now and much of this movie went over my head. But I did thoroughly enjoy it. It's something fresh and different.
