as you know, the Heisei Gamera trilogy is heavily influencend by NGE because of Shinji Higuchi's involvement.

Has anyone noticed the similarities between the endings of Evangelion 2.22 and Gamera 3 too?

- Both Rei Ayanami and Ayana Hirasaka are absorbed by an angel/angel-like kaiju (Iris) that has tentacles.

- Both Eva-01 and Gamera lose one of their arms and replace it by a "fire" before rescuing the absorbed girl which results in the destruction of the angel/kaiju.

Do you think that the ending of Evangelion 2.22 is a direct reference to Gamera 3?
