Re: Q sucks and Anno hates you [split]

Yeah i don't see Kaworu as evil but rather as a classic road to hell is paved with good intentions type thing. He may have wanted Shinjis happiness (w/e that was in his mind) and did everything to get there. If that included misleading and omitting information from Shinji then so be it. There's too ...

Re: The idea of a timeloop

They'd had to have had some sort interaction, a choker was made for him, and he was the pilot of the Mark6. There is the missing 11th angel so maybe in this instance, Kaworu was Shinjis replacement pilot instead of Asuka like in NGE.

Re: Q sucks and Anno hates you [split]

I dunno if it's so much as dense as there's just so little information. Yui was maaaybe responsible for unit 1 rejecting the dummy plug and she, as far as can be inferred, willingly became unit 1s control system. Beyond that, Yui is very much an enigma for now. So just how much in cahoots she is wit...

How much of Yui in Rei

While taking a shower last night and thinking of eva, an idea came to me. It was interesting how Fuyutsuki told Shinji that Rei had been made from Yuis' data . What exactly did that mean? Now this will be some rabbit hole speculation so here goes. 1) Rei was made from Yuis' data. 2) Gendos plan invo...

Re: DSS Choker Reveal [split]

@Freaky It all goes back to what started this thread to begin with, if the other pilots also wear chokers and what that implies. My point was why the singling out of Shinji specifically? Chokers have one purpose only, to stop awakenings and prevent impacts, if Asuka and Mari wear one then Misato is ...

Re: DSS Choker Reveal [split]

The reason Shinji is barred piloting Unit 01 isn't because of Impact issues; Shinji can't pilot Unit 01 because it's being used as the Wunder AAA's engine. Shinji can't pilot a vehicle that's entirely being used as an engine for a completely different vehicle. I don't know why Unit 01 specifically ...

Re: DSS Choker Reveal [split]

@Freaky Umm the whole reason Shinji was told not to pilot and the choker placed on him as a contigency in case he did, was because of the risk of an awakening and an impact. That kinda goes out the window and does make Misato a hypocrite if she was constantly sorting 2 pilots that could cause the sa...

Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media

Well the choker was made for Kaworu, not Shinji. If the whole point of a choker is to prevent impacts, that's another +1 in Misatos hypocrisy pile and while i'm not against such revelation, it does seem odd.

Re: Loop Theory (I Really was born to meet you)

Some issues i see with that is that Kaworu is an angel, and in NTE angel =/= adams and another is that that comes perilously close to the whole destiny trope that, as a filthy shonen weeb, i'd hate for eva to go down that road. Kaworu is too single mindedly obssessed with Shinji for it to not be som...

Do you want Evangelion, or do you want some ADR director's unnecessary reinterpretation of Evangelion? Completely changing the meaning of that line and committing character assassination is not a valid dubbing choice and saying you "prefer" it is basically saying "I don't care about ...

Re: Piano-Facilitated Homoeroticism at an Altitude of 10km: A Field Study

One of the ideas i've had in regards to Kaworus obsession with Shinji was that he lived with the Ikaris when Shinji was a toddler. Gendo had his 14 year plan and Seele had plans upon plans, one which included Shinji as a backup. So what if Seele sort of "imprinted" Kaworu unto Shinji, then...

Re: Q sucks and Anno hates you [split]

^ I prefer the dubs take on this one, to me Misato vocalizing her frustration at Shinji at that time when the shit was hitting the fan makes more sense that concern would.

Re: Why didn't Misato (or anyone) tell Shinji anything in 3.0?

^ Been a while since i last saw 3.0 but i'm fairly sure there's a shot of unit-1 in its radiant giant stage when they're explaining the choker to Shinji. Also pretty odd to put an anti-piloting device on someone they had 0 intention of letting pilot again.

Re: Why didn't Misato (or anyone) tell Shinji anything in 3.0?

And the argument about time is not solid either, because it ignores the sheer amount of things going on and needing to be attended to in the running of a large ship being brought into service. The film doesn't spend time on those because they are not relevant in detail. I would say that that reinfo...

Re: The Mystery of the Second Cross in 3.0

Settie: The spears get longer when they're impaling Lilith and 06, but they retain the same girth. So the Spear does indeed provide a proper scale for Lilith in Jo and Ha: Lilith's own hands would comfortably wrap around the shaft, therefore she is about Eva-sized. That's actually incorrect, just d...

Re: The Mystery of the Second Cross in 3.0

I'm not sure how this is a mystery. If memory serves we don't actually know the "size" of lillith and its cross. As the few shots of lillith don't have good reference to asses size. Plus even if lillith was eva size, there's still the fact that the spears don't actually have set size, sinc...

That was a good chapter, it didn't get confusing considering written battle scenes can turn to a culestercuss quickly but you managed to avoid that and keep things easy to follow. Still these endings remind of of the early Jojo episodes (a good thing), that "to be continued" leaving you wa...

In 2.0 they already had fairly developed space faring tech, now with all that went down, i think it'd be likely that humanity would look to space as a backup plan in case WILLIE f...
