Re: What are your guys' thoughts on Shinji & Kaworu's Relationship (Episode 24 of the OG Series)

I think there's outright confirmation from the cast and crew that there was very much intended to be a romantic component there, regardless of what contemporary label one wishes to use. The central themes of the episode were basically Shinji's desire for love and acceptance (of any form) and how it ...

Re: Minor news about Shin Evangelion: 3.0+1.0

Thank you very much for posting it here :shinjismile: Well, they should sell the "uncut" version in the BD then. :wink: I REALLY hope they do this and am overjoyed that the movie will be long (but also that they're putting a bow on EVa and calling it done while it's stiff fun/good draggin...

Re: Do you think Gendo dyes his hair?

He barely bothers to zip his uniform, so I doubt it.

Lucky genetics, I'd wager. Perhaps Shinji shall also be so fortunate.

Re: Theory on Evas and Rei Creation

The timeline is fuzzy there though - ie, we don't know if Gendo was even there for the salvage operation. He went MIA for a week right after she dissapeared so it could well have happened in his absence, leaving Fuyutsuki in charge. Perhaps he made the decision to attempt it. In Shinji's case it too...

Re: Theory on Evas and Rei Creation

That Rei was created from the results of the salvage operation is pretty much canon, it might've been in the CI or some other official released material and the manga also heavily implies it. I don't think that Rei was the direct result though, in that she popped out fully formed with Lillith's soul...

Re: From Your Lips to the Author's Ears: Story Ideas

how about an AU where Shinji was raised by his SEELE-aligned maternal grandparents, and indoctrinated into the conspiracy? Perhaps they’d influence him to be more sciency and strategic like his parents (while ironically turning him against them), he tends to want to please people who are nice to him...

Re: Apostles?

It might be an equivalent to a trick that is normally baked right into chinese-influenced writing systems I've seen this a lot in anime & manga that they use the choice of glyph to indicate some extra meaning while having the way it sounds allude to something else, or they will give something a ...

Re: "New Unit 02"

^This. WILLE is basically having to squeeze all the juice out of those old EVAs since they can't exactly get new ones But I also like the idea of EVA 02 having a "grizzles veteran" look to match its pilot. But though it's heavily patched together, it's still technically the same one that A...

Re: Do you think Yui enjoys being in Unit 1?

I really don't like this idea that that's a "western" standpoint Not only does it turn a very basic idea ("how about everybody gets to impact the decisions?") into something parochial and opinionated attached to a big unrelated host of cultural material (ie. that to a...

Re: Trailer 2 discussion thread

IS that Rei? I thought it was Kaworu there with Fuyutsuki, then again the room look like the one with the discarded clone heads. If Kaworu returns he could have been removed FROM Eva 13 somehow in that shot. But whats this location? It could also be a flashback or metaphysical/ an inner vision. Stil...

Re: The Point of Asuka

After having a few more days to think about it, from a thematic and narrative standpoint, Asuka dying seems to mainly serve as motivation for Shinji to trigger Instrumentality in my opinion. I still don't quite understand what purpose just how much torture and pain she experiences serves, after hav...

I still can't get that the big seminal tragedy that two seeds just happened to crash on the same planet was ultimately caused deliberately - and it's the person or entity who was technically on Team Human who fired the first shot, putting the angels sort of in the right, which might be a statement a...

Re: Analysis: Um, Kaworu Is Good Actually

Only if you define "likeability" as "superficial charm" that isn't founded in anything/ being the same as 'charismatic' or 'socially skilled', not 'admiration and liking based on someone's good or sympathetic qualities' which is what I believe the intention here to be. If someone...

Also wasn't that kinda symbolic with how he got caught up in the enjoyments of life and did not think back of his previous existence? It's all very vague anyways. I'd wager that if she maintained herself for the last years shes not flickering out anytime soon. Again one wonders how much merging with...
