Angels, Rei clones, and Evangelions are made of a substance nicknamed Particle-Wave Matter, or PWM, which apparently is something like solidified light. It works on very different principles, such as some sort of immortality-regeneration factor, and the fact that the AT Field isn't responsible ...

I'm not a big fan of CGI in the anime I watch (I don't watch much though). I wish that they would only use it for the Angels though. Gives them a feeling of otherworldliness and that they shouldn't exist in our state of reality. Come on Anno, make Lovecraft proud!

They're alive in manner of amoebas. Their movements could be interpreted as non conscious reflexes. I doubt they have a mental life or anything analogous with it. This is somewhat off topic, but you could argue that the Angels are the same. Perhaps only the EVA's human souls are the only th...

Their armor acts as physical restraints, and they've also done something to suppress their mental functions, which is why they need a pilot to "synch" with in order to be active at all. That makes sense. I knew that the armor was restraints. Does it ever say what that they did to the ...

I agree that she's grown as an actress. I don't mind if they chose a different person, but Grant would be nice. I wonder if she'd throw in random German into her speech (if she does cool; if not, well then the dub would be accurate). The only thing Grant really has more than anyo...

I think Kaji's voice actor can't speak a lick of English, so Kaji's lines were written with that in mind. I also think this because Mari has such good English in comparison. That said, while Mari has an accent, it may be (a little, but maybe unlikely) intentional. While her accen...

Shinji is probably suicidal. He's made in such a way, and his portrayals are congruous with that of a suicidal person. He doesn't let anyone (and Anno doesn't let us know either unless through Word Of God) about his tendencies and often can't go through with it. The cliff sce...

How I always saw it, was that Kaworu is Rei's opposite. Rei has emotions, but doesn't know how to express them. Kaworu has no emotions, but knows how to express them to manipulate people. This is what I saw kind of in his relationship with Shinji. He's curious about humans, but doesn'...

Getting back to the original question, I think that the pilots black out most of the time, but it isn't completely necessary. AuraTwilight, thanks, I forgot that she said that. Makes sense though ;P. To be completely honest, we probably are thinking into this more than the creators did. The ques...

Discussions of meanings of symbolism.

I know that this is probably asking for bad news, but lets discuss the symbolism of various things in Evangelion. When I say symbols, I mean the esoteric religious references. Let me say before we start, I know that half of them don't really mean anything (glares at giant cross explosions...

I was under the impression that the EVAs are always aware and conscious of their actions, it's just that they can't move due to the restraints (unless under extreme duress). The Japanese word used for "berserk" translates better to "out of our control". This means...
