The name changes are probably due to the fact that this movie will be made up of a bunch of America white guys and guyettes. You'd think that they'd at least try to keep the first letters of each name though. I'm glad that all they did with Ray's name was change the spelling though. ...

I don't understand why Susan has a cyber cop type look to her. And the city looks too sci-fi and futuristic. Everything else looks surprisingly good though. Let's hope they get someone cute to play Ray, love that hair style.

the ending made me pretty depressed.


It wasn't too sad. Think of it this way - Shinji, unlike most people, can say that he is the sexiest male alive. And he also has a fairly good chance of getting it on with the sexiest female alive.

Anyone who does try to kill themselves after watching Evangelion has learned absolutely nothing from it.

Angel sense, tingling! I think that we're supposed to assume that both Adam and Lilith gave off similar vibes that the angels' angel sense could detect. As for Kaworu, I think that was a blunder in episode 24', probably best explained with Kaworu being confused. Maybe he thought it entir...

Well, I'd say that they're female because of the nature of the Evas. All of them were built from Adam, and the dominant souls of the first three are female. This may be coincidental, but I believe it would have some meaning in that all the Angels (except Tabris, who has Adam's soul&...

What about in episode 19 when melty Shinji is imagining Asuka, Rei and Misato giving themselves to him? The theme is also reflected in 26' of End of Evangelion.

By your reasoning that's like suggesting she wanted to get it on with Pen-Pen (if you recall, as soon as Shinji rejects her, she goes to Pen^2 looking for physical contact). And Pen-Pen shows no interest in her, but notice that he's almost always around when Shinji is naked. It'...

Shinji is repeatedly represented through the course of the series as an effeminate type of boy, and while there is nothing wrong with that, it does go towards suggesting that Anno had something of this nature in mind. Anno based Shinji on himself, and I'm pretty sure Anno is heterosexual. Origi...

But the problem is, if they just shoot Kaworu while he's sleeping and the last obstacle is gone, Gendo has an equal chance of starting instrumentality his way. It's a classic duel situation, there's no guarantee who will win. Actually Seele has a worse footing in this scenario, because ...
