Re: Kawoshin Symbolism

Ditto. "Evil Kaworu" has never held any ground in my opinion for a lot of reasons but a key one, and this is just me speaking, but from a purely emotional and storytelling standpoint, Kaworu sneakily manipulating Shinji in some grand chess game for larger plot purposes is so boring . It's...

Re: DSS Choker Reveal [split]

If the purpose if the chokers is to prevent impacts, then that's all kind of made useless by the fact that the requirement for a pilot to be present in the Eva to initiate an impact could easily be circumvented by Seele or Gendo just equipping an Eva with a Dummy System and having it cause one that...

Re: A New Challenger Has Appeared! (3+1's New Eva(s))

I don't think Eva Mark.10 is a mass production unit due to its unique armor configuration. Its chest and abdominal armor have m-shaped contours on the underside of each segment, at trait it shares with its predecessor Mark.09 and with Eva 13 but not with any of the mass produced Evas we've seen so f...

Re: DSS Choker Reveal [split]

The reason Shinji is barred piloting Unit 01 isn't because of Impact issues; Shinji can't pilot Unit 01 because it's being used as the Wunder AAA's engine. Shinji can't pilot a vehicle that's entirely being used as an engine for a completely different vehicle. I don't know why Unit 01 specifically ...

Re: Loop Theory (I Really was born to meet you)

^Mhmm, and this Kaworu is significantly different from his 'predecessor' in NGE in many respects. In some ways his personality is almost inverted. Personally I feel that if he'd really lived through the events of the anime he'd know better than to trust any version of Seele again. And I share your f...

^ Man, that's a pretty big misunderstanding by Shinji in 3.0, he thinks she hates him for destroying the world that he may have not even destroyed in the first place Well, that's not so much as misunderstanding as Kaworu mislead him and told him that's what happened. That parallel you pointed out h...

Re: You Never See Anything Just Once - NTE Edition

First up is a brief sequence toward the end of Ha where Misato and Eva-01 are weirdly... coordinated, in terms of how these shots are framed, down to the way they move left to right within the frame on each iteration. The fact that Misato's shots are desaturated also disguises this a bit, but the t...

Re: How come there hasn't been any sort of introspection in the Rebuilds?

According to the notes for the doll, it's a treasured childhood keepsake and the only friend she had as a little kid, which is why she talks to it. tbh the only thing I can think of for rebuild is that they changed the traumatic defining moment for Asuka.... Essentially instead of a mama complex she...

Re: "EVANGELION:3.0+1.0 AVANT 1 (from beginning to 10:40) Version 0706" discussion and prediction thread

I don't think core erosion works on water, no. Antarctica is turned to core but the ocean around it does not appear to be, and when Asuka is plugging in the main engine's igniter some kind of core gunk encases Eva 02's robotic arm but it doesn't spread into the surrounding water.

Fuyutsuki shoots down the idea of resetting time like that in 3.0: https://i.imgur.com/yTQNuaD.png And even in the manga, it was a reincarnation rather than a loop at the end. The only time Eva's used a time loop in official media is in Anima where Armaros continually resets the Earth as part of an ...

Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media

Train aficionados have identified that as the Ube-Shinkawa Station. I wonder if that might mean Wille is based in or around Ube? That station's on the other end of Honshu, ~550 miles from where Shinji, Asuka and Rei are now. Surely they aren't gonna walk that far. :tongue:

Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media

Just taking a quick look at Wunder's layout, I'd guess that the ship isn't set up to manufacture or fabricate all new parts. Wunder is very huge but a lot of that is open air space or the giant wings. Most of the ship's inhabitable space is in the pylons and and along the back, and once you factor i...
