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

With how much ground the film has to cover to wrap all the character's story up, it's likely we probably won't get any explanation for what happened during Third Impact. In the best case scenario, the movie gives us a brief two or three line explanation of Third Impact while focusing mostly on wrapp...

Re: The idea of a timeloop

I want to add another possible explanation for why the title is Evangelion 3.0+1.0 rather than Evangelion 4.0 that doesn't relate to a time-loop. In both Chinese and Japanese, the word 'four' sounds similar to 'death' (shi in Japanese), so it is generally considered bad luck. Rather than just being...

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

That brings up some questions though. If Unit-13 was turning into core, then how is it back to normal again in 3.0+1.0 (based its appearance in the trailer)? Do Gendo and Fuyutsuki have some way of reversing the coreification to bring it back to usable condition? For that matter, if the L-density is...

Re: Which would Seele consider a worse kind of defeat?

That reminds me of something that happens in the movie Steamboy, where towards the end the heroes tell the villain that they've beaten him when they stop his flying fortress thing he created, but the villain simply says that it doesn't matter if they beat him because now everyone has witnessed his c...

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

Mari certainly is nothing like Rei or Asuka so I don't know about your last point there. That is the point. Mari is a representation of a normal person that's in the middle, while Rei and Asuka represent two unhealthy extremes. Someone like Mari being present in the story helps to highlight how dif...

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

And ever since the Great Waifu Wars started, if something is “anti-Rei,” then it must be “Pro-Asuka.” (Mari’s existence be damned.) I see this same logic show up all the time in the shipping wars where Asushin shippers try to claim that it means their ship is the one endorsed by Anno. "If Rei ...

Re: The idea of a timeloop

With all of this background lore in mind, 3.0+1.0 is going to have A LOT of ground to cover. If all of what Reichi has proposed turns out to be true, then 3.0+1.0 is somehow going to have to find time to provide an explanation for what happened during the real Third Impact, explain the connection be...

Re: How much of Yui in Rei

I guess the answer to that question also depends on how much of Lilith is in Rei. Aside from having Lilith's soul, Rei also has some of Lilith's DNA in her too, but how much is the question. Is it mostly Yui DNA and some Lilith DNA, mostly Lilith DNA and some Yui DNA, or an equal mix of both? Rei an...

Re: The idea of a timeloop

Or it could just be a self-contained time loop that exists within the confines of the Rebuild continuity. That would be much easier to explain then trying to connect it to a completely separate continuity. It doesn't have to be connected to the original series to make sense. Do people really want th...

Re: What happens with adam's soul during third impact

I think there could be something to that theory. Seele seems to have a lot of connections to Germany. Seele, Gehirn, and Nerv are all German words. There are two Nerv bases in Germany, which is a lot for a country that small, which hints at it's importance. Kiel is a German name, and I'm willing to ...

Re: What happens with adam's soul during third impact

On the plus side, this feeds nicely into my head canon conspiracy that Kiel has a personal beef against Eva-02 and would have probably been pleased to see her get eaten by Gaghiel. In fact, WHAT IF he made his Eva Series a bunch of similarly eyeless things with big mouths specifically so that he co...

Re: What happens with adam's soul during third impact

I guess that makes sense. In the Rebuilds there's multiple places they could have gotten the Adam DNA from to make the Evas, like from the Third Angel that was in captivity or from any of the four Adam's bodies they discovered, while in the original series the only window of time in which they could...

Re: What happens with adam's soul during third impact

I'm more confused about what happened to his body. He's an embryo, yet they've managed to make Evas out of him. That's a good question. Come to think of it, where did Nerv even get the Adam DNA to make EVAs like Unit-00 and Unit-02 that are clones of Adam if Adam was completely destroyed during Sec...

For a second I thought that was Lum from Urusei Yatsura (an old anime from the 80's) next to Shinj. She's wearing the same leopard skin clothes and those things on her head look like Lum's little horns.

If you're so set on building your own narrative around Anno's work, perhaps it would be better for you to write your own wholly original work. I'd appreciate it if you didn't make assumptions about my intentions. I was just making an observation. If it's a wrong observation, then simply point out t...

If the purpose if the chokers is to prevent impacts, then that's all kind of made useless by the fact that the requirement for a pilot to be present in the Eva to initiate an impact could easily be circumvented by Seele or Gendo just equipping an Eva with a Dummy System and having it cause one that ...
