Took me a while to write this post.

Anno laughs. Sometimes with me, sometimes at me; and sometimes he's deadly serious. All these cases are therapeutic.
No, seriously. Take for example those blue bandanas - it's probably the strongest Polish cultural code there is. When you wage an uprising and you want conventions to protect you, you need, among other things, to mark your combatant troops as soldiers; and if you lack proper uniforms, the easiest and effective way is to use ribbons with your national colors. So we did in Warsaw, when we captured some Wehrmacht's warehouses with Stahlhelmets and stuff.
On the other hand, sending civilians into battlefield is so Japanese it hurts. We trumped this shit using our boy scouts as liasons; we even erected monument to commemorate them. Eew.
Anyway and dropping what's less important.

Yeah, how about no. To repeat myself: 3.33 is the Kuronami's show, who interacts with both Shinji and Ayanami, and thanks to this she somehow manages to develop herself as a person, because she's the one who needs it the most in this installment
. So what Anno tries to tell the fandom is: there are characters in the Evaverse more screwed than both Shinji and Ayanami could ever be; thus their responsibility now is to lend such characters a helpful hand.
Digest that and apply in real life.

Did you just walk out of theatre when the 2.0 credits appeared?

And what does all that Christian poor men's theatre solve for Shinji? Nothing.
LightDragonman wrote:So what motive would he [Tabris] gain from lying about all that?
If you missed that detail, he declared his personal all-out war against the whole world, when he said that there is no unforgivable sin
. Yes, there is: it's a sin against the Holy Spirit, Jesus said that. Tabris rebels against that. So suddenly Christianity is no longer a bag of cool visual stuff, but becomes object of serious criticism coming from a member of the last pagan empire on this planet. What's your reply?
Do you even know the basic foundations of the culture you live in? Study harder

(sigh) To decode his message compare what Kuronami did and what Tabris did, and who of them did more harm to Shinji, and who of them shown more courage and flair when facing the unknown. Suicide is the endless stupidity
; so while you're at this world, learn how it works
Which all should be dropped in favor of yet another shallow harem story, because this is what some fans consider as "muh themes".
