Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media: 2.22 You Can (Not) Release

^ I doubt any company would be willing to shell out money for licensing and theater rentals for content that's at least 8 years old, even if it's some sort of bundled deal with the last movie. Eva is still a niche property outside Japan. I'd say it's more comparable to One Piece in that it's hugely ...

Re: Asuka and Mari's new plugsuit may actually be hinting at "3.33 Director's Cut"

I wonder where Toho and Toei figure into this? I'm sure they made a deal with Khara to bring final to as many screen as possible and how would that affect theatrical releases in territories outside Japan. Personally whoever gets the eventual right for it in the US i hope they keep the same dub for c...

Re: Evangelion:3.0+1.0 Trailer 3 Discussion

Been a while since i saw 3.0 but doesn't Fuyu tell Shinji that his father is willing to give up his soul for his goals?? That's a pretty concrete statement in regards to how Gendo functions. About the merch thing, there's a difference between something created and afterwards marketing the bejebus ou...

Re: Evangelion:3.0+1.0 Trailer 3 Discussion

Don't like Reis white plugsuit either. There's franken-evas and a giant flying spaceship and giant teeth on the crust of the earth. I don't think the rebuild is lacking in difference. All these new plugsuits do is trigger the cynical part of me that says they're were made solely for the eventual fig...

Covid wise europe is going the wrong direction and the US remains the shitshow we've been since it all started. With the colder months still ahead and vaccines taking time to distribu...

This didn't hype me as much as i had hoped it would. I'm sure it will be a spectacle but i'm not that emotionally invested in these character if at all, (looking at you Mari) so seeing these teasers focusing on them is underwhelming for me. Also for the love of all that is holy why white plugsuits??...

Re: Against "Rebuild is Anti-Rei Pro-Asuka" conspiracy theory

I could see how this theory might work for NGE, but NTE is far too different for it to hold any water. NTE is Shinjis story and there really isn't a "best" girl or any of that stuff in the movies. The sexual tensions and romantic undertones aren't nearly as prominent here and there isn't a...

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...

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: 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.
