Re: Explain Each Characters' Instrumentality/3rd Imapct Plan

Thanks for the reply! I have a few followup questions: Thus, Unit 01 can be used as a substitute for Lilith if need be. The Instrumentality in EoE seem to involve 2 beings: Eva01 and Giant Rei (which comprises Lilith's body & soul, as well as Adam's body & soul?). If Eva01 was meant as a bac...

Explain Each Characters' Instrumentality/3rd Impact Plan

I haven't seen Evangelion in several years, so I decided to binge the Netflix release. Having been out of the Evangelion loop for awhile, I found myself getting lost following the plot. I was especially lost with the differences between several of the characters' Human instrumentality/3rd impact pla...

EVERYONE: We're saved! CONTROL STAFF: We did it! We did it! We did it! RITSUKO: That idiot. I honestly thought the "idiot" she was referring to was the person presenting Jet Alone... But that's beside the point. So now I think I get that Science in NGE isn't really portrayed a...

What exactly do you make of the conversations between Gendo and Fuyusuki? Gendo believes that science makes man strong and defends them from threats and Fuyusuki believes that science and human arrogance is a detriment to humanity? That appears to be the theme in these episodes. And what about Misat...

7 - This is probably an example of how the arrogance of man screws everything up 11 - Neo-Tokyo is reliant on science. What happens when the science fails (power outage)? The Evas are launched manually, in other words, without technology and using nothing but humans. 12 - The Magi couldn...

Science, Human Will, and Playing God in NGE

Throughout NGE (especially the Action Arc), the power of science is constantly portrayed in a negative light. It often fails the characters where human willpower succeeds (EP 7, 11-13, and the attempts to leave Eva piloting to the Dummy System rather than a human). Furthermore, many ...

So the TV series itself only made 4.5 billion yen out of the 150 billion yen total? And the movies made another 4.34 billion combined? (or did Goggle Translate get it wrong?) That is a surprisingly small percentage!

OK, does it also say how much money the series made in the US?

How much money did the TV series and movies make?

According to Wikipedia, the Evangelion franchise grossed over 150 billion yen (about 1.44 billion dollars). However, this number appears to include everything : series, movies, manga, rebuilds, games, and (possibly) other merchandise. I would like to know: how much money did the TV s...
