It's not clear that Gendou even "betrayed" Kaworu so much as simply foiled whatever Kaworu's plans actually were. Kaworu's stated intention was to withdraw both Cassisu and Longinus spears from Lilith's corpse, and uses these with Shinji to repair the world. The mechanics o...

[Since we've very firmly moved onto discussing the nature of Rei's mysterious appearances, I've split this thread from "Toji's dream" . - OMF] Also, rusty as my mod skills are, I'm detecting a rather passive-aggressive chit-chat style antagonism/fatuousness creeping in...

While it is possible that an entirely different piece of Lilith powers Eva-00, shouldn't we, by Occam's razor, try to explain this using an existing piece we already know about? It occurs to me that our different conceptions of soul divisibility may be leading to our talking across one anoth...

As to why Lilith(as the bookend Rei's) would be observing Shinji, remember that Lilith was connected to Eva-01 and Yui during the contact experiment. Moreover, the salavage attempt resulted in the greater part of Lilith being placed in a Yui shaped body. As Yui's only child, Shinji i...

The major problem with the time-travel interpretation of the "bookend Rei's" is that it requires a very awkward extension of the quantum strangeness concepts within the show to include time-travel. While some theories of QM do permit time-travel, there's no direct evidence for this...

I would disagree in the case of Matarael, but Iruel is a different story. I think it's actually quite likely that SEELE were involved in the Iruel incident. Note that during the episode Gendo makes a very important point of covering up the Angel's presence. Later in #14, he is actually calle...

Kaworu's purpose to the story is very clear: He is introduced as a device to make Shinji break the last of his deeply held principles -- respecting the sanctity of life -- and finally shatter the last of Shinji's sense of self worth. While the character has other aspects, and is built upon m...

Re: NGE & EoE: Different Endings or Different Canons?

What if EVANGELION:DEATH isn’t a clip show of NGE, but rather it’s using select clips from NGE and new footage in an auditorium to construct slightly different canon from that which we see in NGE. EoE, therefore, is an continuation of this alternative canon introduced in DEATH. A canon in which Asu...

My impression of the 24 fight was that Eva-01 won because Kaworu had stopped caring enough to keep controlling Eva-02. After Kaworu's big reveal, Eva-02 probably just goes limp as a rag doll. I dobt the Prog knife had much to do with things. Also, in relation to the damage, recall ep 06, where E...

My interpretation of the above sequences is that Toji has inexperienced a kind of Psychic overbroadcast from Rei as she converses with a sleeping Shinji, inside Shinji's own mind. The key piece of evidence is Toji's being inside the Hell Train, something he needs access to Shinji's mind ...

The logical thing is that Rei is in one, and Yui in the other, and that's what give it it's godly power, if Gendo swapped just one of them, then logically it would lost its infinite godly power, but then how would it be possible that EVA-01 could power the Wunder without any problem? It'...

I suspect something fairly odd is happening to Kaworu as he becomes the 13th Angel/ Trigger for 4th Impact. The hair and bubbles may be apart of this, though the DSS Choker is a factor as well. I suspect the hair to be more innate though.

Aren't these a visual motif that connect Gendo to Shinji and the shifting of loyalties in Rei 2 from Gendo to Shinji in Rei 3, ending ultimately in Rei 3's rejection of Gendo in EoE? That's probably a topic for another day! But for now I just want to focus on Yui imagery. A direct conne...
