While I'm not saying anything happened sexually between Shinji and Kaworu during their time together, I certainly believe it could have, and I also don't for a minute believe it wouldn't have had Shinji wanted it to... Just on this point, what is your interpretation of Shinji's reac...

Shinji's words at the end of episode #24 cannot be easily dismissed. He clarly states that he loved Kaworu. Once could go on about the differences between romantic and platonic love, but before we do, a further look at the actual Japanese dialouge would be in order. Originally posted on: 21-Mar-...

With all this theorising on Shinji's sexual orientation, perhaps now might be a good time to resurrect Mr. Tines' old "necrophilia" theory! On a more serious note, I'd like to mention something that was mentioned on the TrivialBeing forums some time back. Namely; How can Shinji...

I don't get it. But looking at the image reminded me that the "seatbelt" structure extends forward from the regular structure. Perhaps there are additional controls on it. Time to look at more shots.

I'm about 90% confident on he part about the parachute, but basically it has nothing to do with Shinji's 'seatbelt', which my compleeeeeeetly uneducated pet theory is that it's only there to keep him from running away again. He has to be strapped down to get him in the thing. Sy...

Isn't it possible to swap the seat-thingamabob from one plug to another? It doesn't seem to be a fixed part of the plug. It isn't. The revelant shots are from episode #06. http://www.evageeks.org/ANF-Archive/images/../images/6LDM3KET9N3QAFEFG1F0RR64R-plugdetachableseat1xk.th.jpg I belie...

If this seatbelt theory is going to be pursued, using the examples of Shinji's use and Misato's non-use, I wouldn't take it any further until you do some research into the seatbelt laws of Japan as they existed during the time of the show's production. Seek and ye shall find. Seatbe...

Like all trolls, his eventual mistake seems to have been that of Icarus. Enjoying his flight too much, believing himself to be immortal, he flew too close to the sun, and the wax melted from his feathered wings. Falling abruptly to the ground below, he serves as both a warning, and a comfort. We ca...

I take it they were deleted other than the Mario/Princess Peach animated GIF. Was it good Yaoi? or Crappy Yaoi? Let's just say that Chairman Keel would have approved. Edit: Afraid not. They are both positron cannons, but they are not the same positron cannon. Go through and compare, you'll ...

As for the visor that Shinji uses in episode 6, and both Asuka and Rei use in episode 22, judging from the diagrams found in the NewType 100% book, it is a standard component of the plug. Which makes me curious. Though Asuka and Rei both uses positron rifles to snipe Arael, only Rei uses the "...

It's called an animation error. Stop looking for some deeper significance to it. I would have said that originally, but Misato's wild driving gives cause for thought. Who is the one that puts on the seatbelt first? She only ever seems to wear a seatbelt when Shinji is in the car. Originally...

In support of the above explanation that Shinji might have a compulsion about seatbelts, consider the following. There's ample evidence to suggest that Misato, the motor fan with a modified hotrod, drives like a lunatic . But what about when it comes to road safety? I would say that Misato is ra...

They don't use the same plugs. In episode #14, both Shinji and Rei comment that the other's plug "smells" like its primary occupant.

There is in fact more evidence to support this "seatbelt worry" interpretation. More shortly. But will it be enough for SEELE08?

Interesting. Several thought come to mind. Going by the most obvious difference, it could be that Shinji's sex somehow requires certain ajustments to the cockpit in some way. By the Reichu interpretation of the Evas being female, perhaps extra neurological engineering is required to "accomm...

There has always been a dichotomy in Yui's nature and actions. In her form as a woman, we see her as the beatific "Saint Yui", always kind and loving and full of wisdom. The perfect kind and caring individual, who even manages to melt Gendou's heart. Yet in her form as an Eva, we s...

This is why hard disk, and more importantly, CD backups of ripped DVDs are important!
