Is this because of (from what I've heard) Kaworu seems to recall events that have yet to transpire in Rebuild but did in the original series, or is there some new information that has come to light? I don't know a large part of the details of Rebuild as I'm trying to keep some aspects of it unknown until my first viewing of it.

Yea and isn't the ocean red and there some red gash on the moon? And how do we know that Kaworu can recall past events (what are they?) when we only see a glimpse of him at the end?

He's generally as saying that he's met Shinji before and looks forward to meeting him again.

I'm up for universe cycles.

As long as we find Kaworu isn't talking about meeting Shinji when they were babies I'm fine.

I tolerate Kaworu for what thematic elements he adds and try to ignore his blatant obnoxiousness. But I don't think I could tolerate a flashback scene of a Chibi Shinji and Chibi Kaworu playing San Francisco Doctor.

I had the exact same thought. I think I might have mentioned it, even. Or maybe I didn't. I don't remember. I don't remember it. I don't.

All the throwbacks to the original series and EoE (like Kaworu supposedly recalling events from the series, and the blood stain on the Moon) would seem to show that this is an alternate universe, yes.

If this ends up being that Shinji accepted Third Impact and made a multiverse, the ending of EoE only being one, I'm just gonna get annoyed. While I like the idea of repeating stories as a thematic thing, there's already a wealth of alternate universes established for Evangelion. Unless it is uncannily well-done, this will probably tax on my nerves. Still, I'll most likely enjoy it being the whore I am.

Yes, I would be quite annoyed if something like that happenend, too.

I do think it would really great if it was revealed that EoE and RoE are connected in some way in the final RoE movie. But, this would have to be extremely inventive and clever for it to not annoy me. However, I certainly don't doubt Anno's ability to deliver on that for me ^_^
