Re: Rei is Shinji's sister (...not!)

Being that Rei is a clone of Yui and shares most of her DNA, wouldn't that make her Yui's sort-of twin sister instead? So in a sense, Rei is actually Shinji's aunt.

Re: What are your thoughts of a Steven Universe/Evangelion crossover?

Sorry for necro-posting in a thread that's over a year old, but I have the most amazing crossover idea that I just have to share. The other day my friend and I were coming up with potential RP scenarios, and one of the scenarios we came up with was for a crossover between Steven Universe and Evangel...

Re: Stuff that you would like to see in Evangelion 3.0+1.0

I would like a bittersweet ending that isn't like EOE and more "upbeat" even if it''s not a "happy one and a Rei Q that fulfills her (or a) character arc and doesn't become a meat puppet. A incantation of Rei that is new and fresh and will not face/suffer the same fate Rei II did as ...

Re: Those Aren't Our Spears! A Theory On Impact Classifications, The Origins Of The Spears, Time Loops, And The Coffins

They could have replaced each of the Angel's souls by inserting an artificial Rei or Kaworu soul into their cores to make them easier to control. This would tie into the theory of the Rei clones possibly being part of the Seele Program that took over control of Mark.09 and Unit-13. Releasing the 12t...

Re: Those Aren't Our Spears! A Theory On Impact Classifications, The Origins Of The Spears, Time Loops, And The Coffins

so how such beings would fit inside Lilin-sized coffins raises some super weird questions about what these supposed baby Angels actually look like... A whole Angel wouldn't actually be crammed into each coffin, but rather just their embryos. Seele could have collected the embryos early on before th...

Re: Adams, Children, and the Nature of the Cycle

This bit of dialogue has, understandably, tripped up speculation about what exactly happened to Asuka. She still possesses corruption from the 9th Angel, but there’s no corruption from the Angel? HUH??? Mark.09 being created from the core that once held Asuka’s soul — as strange as the concept migh...

Re: Mari's vow to Shinji

Bit off topic but i didn't think Mari is responsible for what Shinji did. I think it shows two ways Shinji reacts to things happening in his life. N3I is related back to the 9th angel incident, In that one Shinji refused to do anything and so he lost any and all agency in the outcome. In N3I he did...

Re: Mari's vow to Shinji

I think it just means that Mari is able to look at Shinji in an objective fashion. The way i see it Misato sees him as a reminder of the mistakes of the past, Asuka is a bundle of conflicting emotions regarding Shinji, the rest of Willie at large distrust him. Mari on the other hand is able to see ...

Re: First look at Unit 08 and Mari from the theatrical teaser for 3.0+1.0

They could have just used some of the spare Unit-02 parts they find in Paris to fix Unit-08, but didn't have time to repaint it, thus giving it a mismatched color scheme.

Re: Rebuilds being a continuation of EoE?

I always assumed that the reason it was called 3.0 + 1.0 instead of 4.0 was because of how the number four is considered to be very unlucky in Japan and a lot of other East Asian cultures, due to how similar it sounds to the word for death. Tetraphobia is so extreme in Japan that people will even go...

Re: Does Shinji view Asuka as someone who can help him?

I don't think so. Shinji was in a comma so his mental age is still 14 years old, but Asuka is much mentally older (27/28 years old) so they are very different, while biology also plays an important role in the development of an adult person. Asuka is also mad at Shinji, but this time she is not cov...

Re: Dreams about Evangelion...

Damn, that's a good dream. Why is Shinji Lilith and not Adam? My guess is because of their Evas. Shinji piloted Unit-01, which was a clone of Lilith, and Asuka piloted Unit-02, which was a clone of Adam. Also, it's kind of like a subversion of expectations. Normally people would be quick to assume ...

Re: Mari's vow to Shinji

It's not just that. Mari standing there and saying that she is going find Shinji also kind of mirrors the scene at the beginning of 3.0 where Kaworu is watching Unit-01 falling back to Earth and says that has been waiting for Shinji. Could this parallel be intentional? The fact that she would mentio...

If you mean that pieces of the puzzle are still missing, okay. For example why Kaworu says "This time, I'll be sure to bring you happiness"? Did he fail last time? Has he already met Shinji in the past? When? But these mysteries are not necessarily explained by timeloop between Rebuild-NG...

A meta comment here: Where in the world, where in popular culture, did this time-loop meme arise from?

Re: Adams, Children, and the Nature of the Cycle

Some very interesting theories here. I'm starting to like them more and more. …we have our answer. “Adams’ Vessel” means “Vessel for an Adams’ Soul”, or just “Adams’ Core”. Mark.09 is the core of an Adams. Or was , once upon a time. Lilith knows what Seele did to it. So which Adam would they have go...

Re: Adams, Children, and the Nature of the Cycle

Why are you trying to squeeze Mk.9 and Wunder into the Adams ranks, out of curiosity? When it comes to theories about fiction, I usually follow the principle of Occam's Razor, which states that the simplest explanation that involves the least amount of assumptions is usually the one that's correct....
