The open mind part is a must. There's a lot to unpack here...much more than all of Shinji's boxes for sure. (You'll probably get that reference once you watch the show.) :lol:

Anyone know what this says in Japanese?

It's from episode 20.
The Spanish subs say it was an attack by a cult.
Shinji: "Sooner or later I'll be betrayed... And they'll leave me. Still... I want to meet them again, because I believe my feelings at that time were real."
Ryuko: "I'm gonna knock ya on your asses!"
-Asuka: THINK IN GERMAN!!! -Shinji: Öh... Baumkuchen...
Hayashida: "As game developers, our work is special. All of us here can put smiles on very many people's faces with our work."

What if... Kaworu bonded with Misato instead of Shinji, and the two of them were siblings?

It did previously; it showed the frame where the Netflix subs say the terrorist attack was by leftwingers. The question is whether the use of that term has any basis. I've seen it discussed, but can't find it in the forum - so maybe in Discord?

I do vaguely recall a conversation about this on Discord - I'm not sure tho if it was our Discord

It came up in the Evangelion part of the Discord on 27th June 2019. There was a quote (from a now-deleted tweet) which said: " I think the word as used in the script refers to a religious sect and is intended to evoke Aum Shinrikyo." Then there was a discussion which seemed to hover round someone saying that in 1995 in Japan the terms "leftist" and "terrorist" were seen as similar, so this translation is culturally appropriate. Then I got bored and stopped reading it, as the consensus appeared to be that it really didn't matter anyway...
