I honestly think it's meant to be somewhere in between. Anno reenforces the bleakness at the end, just as he relapsed into depression despite his resolve to move forward, but the message of hope is still present. To steer this back, I would say that's where Anno will leave the Rebuild verse....

Now, that last thing in quotes.. I'm still not convinced Anno is going for that particular message. I think Anno like any good writer spills His Contents onto the page in really interesting, dramatic ways. Super compelling characters. Very emotionally centered material. The TV show was basicall...

Oh dear, I hope not. Nothing ruins a good ending faster than an epilogue. I'm not saying it would be good but I can see it happening. The epilogue certainly ruined Nadia's ending! So am I correct in reading that the preview for FINAL attached after the credits is simply the FrankenEva fight...

Given that Asuka showed him more hostility than anyone, and yet didn't seem to be inclined to do this at the end, that seems awfully dubious. If anyone was inclined to go that route at all at this point he'd be dead already. It's hard to read Asuka in Q, and what she's thinking or f...

Shinji will show himself to be a person who's not willing to sacrifice everything for the sake of one woman, thus stepping out of the shadow of his father. My other prediction: another 14 year timeskip, and the pilots are now seen in 28 year old bodies, fitting with the whole theme of taking res...

Why is it so hard to believe she was in coma for 13 years and still has a crush on him ? ...because that's ridiculous, especially in light of everything that's happened in the past 14 years. That's what makes Q what it is and separates it from the original. In NGE, Shinji bonded with al...

Here's a short manga by Yagisaka @ pixiv, showing post-Final events. Shinji has reconciled with Misato and reunites with an aged Kaji. From what little I can tell, Kaji and Misato have had a kid or kids together, but they're not actually shown. (I hope this is what's going on... I&#...

Î don't think Asuka is the sort of character that dies. Her "life" association from the original is not really present in Rebuild (other than maybe the "animals eat other animals!" speech) but you know, Anno needs her there to write the dialogues in between all those...

A live action film set long after EoE. Think the cut live-action sequence of EoE (except Shinji exists in this one) or Anno's live-action work.

No Evas or angels, no big sci-fi concepts. Just characters and their relationships and their problems.

Fourth there's of course the 18+ hag deal that probably is important part. I don't think it's simply a matter to pandering for fans - I think the creators themselves are pretty uncomfortable and weirded by the idea. It's simply a matter of habituation and the general youth glorifyin...

But anyway, they wanted to use a music symbol, I'm not arguing that, but what I'm saying is they couldn't have left out the colon symbol they have been using for all the films, it would've been inconsistent and it would not have provided a separation of the subtitle from the title. ...

But you'd think Anno would be aware that the position of the colon would mean that any musically minded person would immediately read the title as 'end repeat'.

Why can't it be both?
