Re: New info re: Episode 20 continuity error?

There's an aspect to this that I don't ever recall discussing: what happened to the street clothes that he was wearing?

Re: How do we know that Lilith had her own spear?

The moons weren't supposed to crash. Adam's White Moon landed normally on Antarctica (which later ended up at the South Pole due to continental drift), sometime later something went wrong that caused Lilith's Black Moon to crash here, causing First Impact, and destroying Lilith's spear. The spears w...

Maybe it's as simple as 3.0 + 1.0 = 4.0.

Re: New info re: Episode 20 continuity error?

That translation does make more sense, but it still doesn't help us know whether they animated it that way deliberately, or if that line was written to cover up a continuity error.

Re: Why was Shinji separated from Unit 01? (Episode 20)

I think the idea is that Yui threw him out. The actual significant thing here is that he is spit out of the core, not the Entry Plug. Apparently his soul moved there to visit Yui. Also, he formed a new body using LCL from the core, not from the Entry Plug where he dissolved. Here we first learn that...

Re: Visually matching shots

The old Eva Commentary site had a page for this called the Recyclodedia, but it never got moved to the new site. (My fault entirely; I never got up the energy to do the re-organizing it needed. (The parallelism examples and the reused footage stuff were all mixed together and needed to be split into...

Re: Theory on Evas and Rei Creation

Actually, what apparently happened is that Rei was created during the salvage operation, not sometime afterward. Thus the operation wasn't a total failure. They salvaged Yui's body, albeit in child form, but they somehow got Lilith's soul instead of Yui's. For this to happen, Unit-01 must have still...

Re: Celebrity RIP Thread

Peter Tork , guitarist for the Monkees The Monkees got a raw deal. It wasn't true that they couldn't play; they played in concerts in front of thousands of people. The true story was that they didn't play on the recordings because they were busy filming a TV series, and that was only true of the fi...

Here's how they taught U.S. history in Japan in the 1860s:

Re: Tokyo-3: Population and Casualties during the War Against Angels

Here's an old thread that includes an image featuring civilian casualties:

Unfortunately, the first of the two images, the "before" image, seems to be dead.

"Ka" means it's a question, right? So would "Is that so?" have been a little better than "I see"?

Re: Non-dialogue differences between English Dub and Original JP audio?

I don't know if you are going to bother with Death and Rebirth , but the most infamous instance of substitution occurs there. It cuts directly from the scene where Kaji is shot to the scene where Asuka slaps Shinji for telling her that Kaji is dead. In the Japanese version they use the sound of Shin...

Re: Theory: EVA 03's soul + Are Mothers' souls really the only ones who are able to bond with pilots?

The trouble here is that they imply that Touji has no mother for a reason. This information is consistent with his fitting into the "Pilots Mother" scenario. If Unit-03 has his sister's soul, why bother telling us he has no mother? Also, if "Sakura" had taken a sudden turn for th...

That would be a great candidate for a supplemental page.
