Yeah, let's hope something good comes out of Final and doesn't end in anything like EoE.

It needs to give us actual orgasms when we're watching it from the awesomeness and fuckery; that's how fucked up it needs to be. I will not stand for anything less than people creaming their pants when they see FINAL.

And nothing could have been darker and put Shinji through more despair than EoE.

then 3.0 came...


I expect anything from Anno, ANYTHING!
SPOILER: Show
I too want some epic-level fuckery, something that will tickle our sadistic streak, Shinji irremediably losing his shit and trying to actually finish the job and kill what remain of mankind, strangling Asuka for good this time just to see the perverted look on pleasure on his face while he really acts like the monster they depict him to be! :devil:

EoE was a good film. It just had a lot of confusing imagery and put the characters through a lot of torture.

Remind me: Where was FINAL's color shown to be blue? I thought it was still white....

Nowhere. This is why I made a ? behind Final. Pure speculation.

White could make sense though as the FINAL color. Like you guys said, it represents death in Japan, and also, in a somewhat scientific sense, white is a combination of all colors, so maybe this is where all colors come to place or lead up to.

And if you remember, Anno apparently wanted that "in the snow" ending, but none of the colors never really represented anything in the actual films they were for, and we don't know if that kind of ending would happen anyway, so of course this all just speculation and blah blah blah.

It probably might be purple or something past blue in the color spectrum, but I wouldn't be surprised if it will be white.

For the record, Red is the color of Birth, brings luck, and is used to balance the death represented by White. Birth and Death are opposites, so, to pose red at the beginning and white at the end certainly has at least a little meaning.

Also, never give someone in China a gift of four white somethings. It's like the kiss of death, because the words for white, four, death, and [something else I don't know] are all the same word, just with a different pronunciation.
When I can finally watch Evangelion 2.0 in its entirety, I think I will need a change of pants. <-I did, too. Twice.

I knew the words/characters for four(四) and death(死) have the same/similar pronunciation in multiple Asian countries, but don't know about white(白) -- the color itself may represent death but its reading is quite different. Is there a different Chinese word for white?

White does indeed represent death, but it's pronounced "Bai". The pronunciation has nothing to do with its death connotation.

Actually I think that going a little further in the spectral color to purple would be even better :
Image

It's both the end and the beginning of the spectrum, which would goes perfectly with Kaworu's phrase that "the beginning and the end are the same", FINAL's symbol that can be interpreted as both a end or a repeat musical sign, and in the movie it would represent both the end of the story and the beginning of a new life if the good guys manage to win and finally destroy Gendo and the risk of Impacts and HIP.

Bonus point if, according to that image, FINAL happens after a smaller time skip of a few years after Q to give some time to Shinji to regain his sanity and Gendo to build his army of MP-Evas, like some people theorized!
