Re: EVA-EXTRA: extracted files & interviews

She also has a very vivid memory about the cut Asuka scene where her face gets ripped off, saying It was crazy how Miyamura was screaming, that it was very shocking I really hope some version of that still exists somewhere and will eventually see the light of day along with similar buried treasures

Re: The Improbability of Asuka's last name

It's not beyond some unlikely results of differenmt countries' naming conventions intersecting that I've seen. I know a case where both the wife, the kids and the husband each ended up with a different last name. I'm not familiar with the nitty-gritty legal details but the only thing that seems part...

Re: Depth of Shinji and Rei's relationship

For me the fundamental point of Rei's character is that she is her own person, NOT Yui or even Lillith. Not to mention that her arc and introspection scenes go into dissecting the whole environment vs. nature vs. choices thing, and that's hardly going to be ended with "Actually this has a simpl...

Re: [Game] "Evangelion Battlefields" to release in 2020.

I have seen some cutscenes with minor little character interactions on youtube (I've seen some on youtube - like the one where Touji tries to get a moody Shinji to cheer up or the one where Maya tells Rei to take a break once in a while) also there's a new Original character in the vein of Mayumi/Ma...

Re: EVA-EXTRA: extracted files & interviews

During the fight with Zeruel, almost for 5 full minutes, Megumi Ogata gets replaced with Soul's Refrain because she's talking about Shin Eva and it's final scene and what she thinks Eva is really about. Once the song finally stops, she comes back and asks the viewers to please come back and watch t...

Re: Rei is Shinji's sister (...not!)

^This. Lillith would register as more human like. To me the whole point of Rei's character has always been inextricably tied to her ultimately being her own person regardless of the 'source material' (which seems to be backed by the recently translated EVA 2 material)and to equate her with either is...

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 ...

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?
