Re: Post Third Impact Topography

If you look at the size of the splash GNR's body makes, relative to the size of the planet given it's curvature in the shot, there isn't enough water in all the oceans of the Earth to produce waves that big. Her torso is well over a hundred kilometres thick in that shot, and the Pacific Ocean is onl...

Re: Post Third Impact Topography

60 m is what you're supposed to get if you melt the entire Antarctic ice sheet, but a 40 m increase gives you pretty much the same basic effect. I was working on a writing project, and was trying to figure out what route A&S would have to take to get to somewhere that has food & shelter.

Re: Post Third Impact Topography

Looking at floodmap.net with the depth set to 60 m, having the beach somewhere out on the coastline in the Mishima area would give you a set of islands visible across a bay. The ruins would be the drowned remains of Mishima and its suburbs. The beach could literally be that - sand and gravel washed ...

Re: The Endless Question: The Souls of the Mass Production Evangelion Series

Those were objections I would have raised as well. Being inside a core protects one from being tanged, apparently, since the MP-Evas were still active after Instrumentality started (they pierced their own cores), which would be impossible if their souls were gone, and Yui remained inside Unit 01 th...

Re: The Endless Question: The Souls of the Mass Production Evangelion Series

My own suspicion is that, if Seele had been able to complete all twelve units, they would have somehow utilized themselves as triggers for Third Impact. This explains why the JSSDF was under orders to simply kill the pilots: Seele didn't actually need them. Yui forced their hand, however, by activa...

Re: The Endless Question: The Souls of the Mass Production Evangelion Series

Regarding the bolded part: Why? Edit: I've got other objections, but I want to understand what you think their goal is first as they depend on that goal. In the scene in Episode 21 where SEELE is discussing EVA-01 gaining an S2 Engine, they describe it having become an actualized god, possessing an...

Re: Gendo's silent line: new theory

"I needed" you has the interesting contrast between the emotional attachment that Ritsuko wanted, versus Gendo's purely utilitarian requirements. The same phrase could be interpreted different ways by Gendo and Ritsuko, with Gendo's interpretation being clarified by him disposing of a now-...

Re: The Endless Question: The Souls of the Mass Production Evangelion Series

I've got an alternative hypothesis that I think makes some sense, on the assumption that the Confidential Information's description of SEELE's true objective for Instrumentality is correct: The souls in the MP EVAs are fragments of the souls of the 12 SEELE council members. Here's my thoughts: &sdot...
