Re: That picture again...

I ran the image through an AI enhancer and colorizer, and increased its contrast and color curvature afterwards. Follows the result: https://i.imgur.com/KiDQmN8.jpg I found some interesting details in it, follows: https://i.imgur.com/jYxasLt.jpg Any thoughts? EDIT: Fixed image links.

Re: Kaworu and SEELE / Gendo's Plans / Angel Rebirth

If they can not generate one, we must still explain their automotive capacity when fighting Asuka. @Derantor Perhaps it serves as an extension of the wielder's AF-Field, thus reacting/eroding the one from its target. :chinscratch: That would fits my proposition for the analogy with the freudian pha...

Re: Kaworu and SEELE / Gendo's Plans / Angel Rebirth

"Mankind" vs "Human": It's indeed from the translation, but I used it to exemplify the concept. As @Reichu puts it, in Japanese the terms are different. I got this specific terms from the Netflix translation, since it was done by Daniel Kanemitsu from Studio Khara. Not trying to ...

Re: Kaworu and SEELE / Gendo's Plans / Angel Rebirth

Armisael: @Reichu: Yeah, it makes sense. Even if the Angel's Souls are not within Armisael, but hanging around or even in another place entirely, I think that it's plausible without too many assumptions that they would converge to Eva-00. I still think that would make sense to treat physical "i...

Re: Kaworu and SEELE / Gendo's Plans / Angel Rebirth

How I missed these in-depth lore discussions! :D I think that's, at least, plausible that Yui took off with a Guf full of souls. I don't know if we'll have a straight confirmation regarding it, but the hints that point to it: - The missing people in the photograph; - The crosses rising after 3I ends...

Re: What is the composition of LCL?

Well, it's fictional, so we'll probably never find a satisfactory realistic answer. I think that the closest substances we have IRL are the synthetic oxygen carrier liquids. They're typically used in liquid-breathing therapies and have been studied as artificial blood substitutes. Using the LCL char...

Hey folks! Hope you people are safe in this whole pandemic mess we're in... Let's get down the rabbit hole: I think we can make sense of Gendo's actions if we analyze his plans for 3I. - If we recall Fuyutsuki's flashback, Gendo was the one that proposed the HIP to Seele, and I think that means a lo...

Re: Asuka isn't Justified

It's really hard to attribute to Shinji responsibility on this topic for a variety of reasons: - He lost his mother on a freaky accident, and immediately after his father distances himself from him; - His father effectively abandons him, and seems to attribute to him the sole responsibility to reach...

@Reichu sorry for the delayed response... (This reminds me, incidentally, that I really need to go Bible-shopping, but there are so many versions and my needs are so specific that it's easy to put off...) If it's for scholar purposes, I recommend NA28, the latest edition of Nestle & Aland Novum...

I just want to know what # Rei clone was the rather serious/Rei-looking "AU schoolgirl Ayanami" that we see in 2.0's Next Time Preview. If the Ayanami Series is too subject to the "Curse of Eva", then it may be Rei#6 (ReiQ). However, one can contemplate what would be if they're ...

@Reichu and @Blockio , I was riding back home today and something regarding this post suddenly crossed my mind: - Just like Rei can't see the outside of Mark.09 after Seele's program override, the other pilots can't see her inside it too. We can observe this detail when Asuka only recognizes her as...

The line is absent in the manga too (and the plug suit is replaced by his normal clothing). It might have been a late addition to Netflix version.

Re: Cruel Angel's Thesis - lyrics in instrumental section solved?

Language-wise, it's totally correct. I don't know, however, if we can trace parallels between the lyrics and the pĺot, specially in Yui's case: The composing team was not aware of the show's context, and the HIP plot was only developed by Anno and team latter in the show, so despite Yui, Seele and K...

It means something on the line of "could it be?" or "is that so?". I guess that "is it really?" is a valid one too :)

@UrsusArctos , what a coincidence! I also went searching for versions of CAT from other NGE albums, and found two that may give us some answers: - One sung by Megumi Ogata (Shinji's original voice-actress) with a male back-vocal which clearly sings " setameso " in a Gregorian style right ...

Gui - I found a version with far clearer singing in that section. The lyrics I posted earlier turned out to be off-base because of all the background singing overlays. The real lyrics seem to be more or less "Faria. Se ta mesmo. Faria. Oo-sei." So I tried to get this translated again onli...

First, I concur with what Reichu said about the FAR ultimately being all too human. In fact, right alongside the notion that NGE's story is the story of man itself, thus the SDSCs being the literature that would inspire world religions (evidenced by Shinji questioing the notion of fighting Angels a...
