Re: Tim Miller's Terminator: Dark Fate (2019)

What I Miss about Terminator, is how the machines are kinda "dumb" but driven, focussed to a singular task. Real killer machines that you set loose on a target, and you just wait while it searches and destroys. T2 already diverted a bit from this by giving arnie a bit more personality, but...

Re: Ego Dissolution and LSD

I vaguely recall there being a movie that has been compared to EoE a few times, about a guy who experiments with psychedelic drugs to perform a sort of one-man human instrumentality project and in the end he succeeds. So you're not the first to link the barrier-thing (at fields) and breaking it down...

Re: Would you pilot an eva?

That really depends. Just pilot one for a time for kicks? Sure. Or do you want me to put myself in Shinji's shoes? Most probably not. Mari usually seems to have a lot of fun piloting her eva, even if/when it hurts like hell. Also the "curse of eva" from rebuild essentially makes you immort...

Re: The Vatican Treaty is still in effect.

For HIP to work, they would need a sufficient amount of alive people, right?

It's probably what those huge amounts of mp eva's are for (assuming they already got people in them), but still.

Re: "You know you're obsessed with NGE when" thread

Sort of same here, I'm interested in NGE and NTE, but thats about it. Even didn't care much for the additional story provided by the Evangelion games (the shit about FAR and all that, never liked it). I own the manga, NGE on DVD and the NTE movies on Bluray. And these stories already differ enough f...

And not wanting to fight the possessed Eva Touji was piloting (mirrored by Asuka in rebuild, sure, different continuity, but Shinji's character is largely the same). And before that, with Shamshel. He was genuinely concerned about their wellbeing. He would rather get hurt himself than to hurt someon...

Re: How do we know that Lilith had her own spear?

Most of these questions were answered by hints in the series and a lot of guess work. But were mostly confirmed by Evangelion games. The black moon crashed into earth, debris collected from the collision became Earth's Moon, this is 1st impact. Embedded deep underneath Japan, this becomes the Geo Fr...

Re: Failures of Infinity: Don't lose your head!

I was typing up a whole rebuttal, but I suppose I can't get around why the people who turned into fols would have the fruit of life, and would need to (re)claim a fruit of wisdom. Guess I didn't think that through. It's just that fruit of wisdom for the head would make more sense, or maybe we're loo...

Re: Failures of Infinity: Don't lose your head!

Been a while since I read this whole thread (so excuse me if I bring up stuff already mentioned), but I had a train of thought about this yesterday, so I thought I'd share. Losing a head / being headless seems to be a common theme in NTE, I'm starting to think that it head holds the fruit of wisdom,...

Re: My Anxiety for Evangelion

I saw NGE around the same age, and had the same feeling. But I thought it was awesome. Never before was a movie/series able to hit me that hard. Especially EoE, I felt it in my soul, it changed me, and at first I hated it. After a while, I noticed I couldn't help but to keep thinking about it, littl...

Re: Those Aren't Our Spears! A Theory On Impact Classifications, The Origins Of The Spears, Time Loops, And The Coffins

I really like this theory, ties in with the themes of loops/cycles without trying to force its way into as NGE as some kind of sequel. Altho technically we could apply the Marvel multiverse logic to this, that NGE was one of the many loops within NTE, anyway, it's irrelevant, NTE stands on its own w...

Re: Adams, Children, and the Nature of the Cycle

What do you suppose might happen if the seal were to be removed? Would the blue goo begin to spread all over Asuka's body and consume or kill her? If Asuka is indeed related to Eva13/Mk9, she might be required for HIP. I'm imagining a bit of EoE grotesque fate for Asuka, where her "true self&q...

Great job Reichu! The way you worded this it all makes perfect sense and seems actually kind of obvious. The links between the 9nth angel, Asuka, mark 9, and the blue goo, can't believe I didn't notice that sooner. The effect of mk9 blue goo infiltrating Wunder seemed a bit out of place, but we've a...

Re: How to pitch Eva to the Netflix generation?

I've tried pitching it to friends and came to the conclusion it's simply not for everyone.

Re: Mari's vow to Shinji

The way you worded this, combined with your Cycle theories, maybe he's serving the interest of his former self. Like the way Shinji is acting is nothing new to Mari, he was like that before. "The more you act like yourself, the more you play in to seele's/gendo's hands" is what I kind of g...

Re: The idea of a timeloop

There are hints at a cycle (see Reichu's topics about her theories about it), Kaworu's lines, for example. I too thought about a loop when the cycle-hints started stacking up. But if you think about it, it wouldn't make sense. Too many things are actually different for it to be the same continuity. ...
