Re: Do the Evas go into Awakening in the original series?

I think there's a difference between being awake (the opposite of sleeping) like you are implying here and an eva awakening (opening up to its full potential) like in eoe or more distinctive in nte.

Re: Do people still hate Evangelion 3.33?

Hmm, thanks Settie, that was really insightful. 3.33 always bugged me about how Shinji is being treated, it doesn't seem fair despite everything we know / see. But the way you explained it, it makes perfect sense. Wille (and thus Misato) might even have used Shinji as a scapegoat, wether it was all ...

Re: Why was Shinji strangling Asuka at the end of EoE?

I'll have to agree with pwhodges here. CT, you seem to have a very negative opinion about Asuka's character, as is your right to have an opinion, but I really don't believe that "most people" would agree with your statements. I saw Asuka as someone would puts up a mask to hide her emotions...

Re: The game of Shogi: a view on characters and plot in Rebuild

Unless they would have just explained it beforehand, like Rei is really gone, but there are others, they are in control of Nerv which is now the badguy. And presto, Shinji would think twice letting Mark9 take him. I really don't buy that Gendo would assume (the whole plan hinges on this) that Wille ...

Re: The game of Shogi: a view on characters and plot in Rebuild

Exactly, but how (would he really scheme this big apocalyptic masterplan purely on an assumption?)? If there was just a hint of Gendo's influence at Wille (maybe there is, but we havent spotted it yet) then I could believe that. But just to say "they acted like i thought they would" to jus...

Re: The game of Shogi: a view on characters and plot in Rebuild

@Reichu I agree partly, ofcourse its all Gendo's masterplan. But with Wille I mean how he was treated. He doesn't know what has happened (neither do we, the viewers), but apparantly everyone on the base tries really hard to make Shinji feel he is unwanted. Misato, the mother figure, is cold and tell...

Re: Do people still hate Evangelion 3.33?

Eva isn't by far perfect, it has enough faults. But if all you comment is "its pathetic/dumb/a joke" then chances are, you simply didn't get it at all. If you did, you would be able to tell us why exactly you think that and you wouldn't use such ambigious words either. I'm by no means a mi...

Re: The game of Shogi: a view on characters and plot in Rebuild

It would help if people would explain things to Shinji. The guy is obviously very troubled, lets stick him in a multi-billion apocalypse-machine, what could go wrong, right? Most of the time Shinji simply doens't know what the hell is going on, no wonder he keeps making the wrong decisions. It's not...

@ TheCarkolum Ofcourse you are entitled to your own opinion, but most of the stuff you list is plainly wrong. You bash a lot without actually explaining why. Just bashing it "this dumb, that is a joke, this is pathetic, etc" doesn't really help anyone so I'm wondering why you wrote it in t...

Re: Stuff that you would like to see in 3+1

I would certainly like to see Rei still playing an important role in the final impact, like in EoE (quantum Rei), these mysterious sightings seem to hint towards that. Or not, Anno could just leave it alone and just keep it as a mysterious but unexplained thing about Rei, so that we can keep on fanw...

Re: What was Seele's original goal for Fourth Impact? Eva Q

Mind tho, the infinities seem to be made completely out of Core. It seems to me that Core needs a soul to function, without it, its pretty much a useless crystal. So i think the infinities aren't something close to an eva. Just a temporary vessel to transport the soul that would no longer exist afte...

Re: Talking about guns in Evangelion

Re: Stuff that you would like to see in 3+1

^ If i'm thinking of the right scene, isn't that because the mark 04s were being pulled from their protective "cocoon" and that's why it looked like dozens of individual hexagonal tiles?? So my guess it was intentional to show them being pulled out. If im getting what Bagheera is trying t...

Eva01 was really important in NGE, I can't imagine it not being so in NTE. So if Eva01 is going to be back in action, then I can only imagine that it has to rip out of the Wunder, unless it was previously damaged. I think, in some final showdown, the Wunder will get shot down and out of commissi...

@Zoop Resident souls are mentioned in NTE here (Fuyutsuki: Yui is 01's control system) http://i.imgur.com/3F9aoUX.png ] There are no souls mentioned. They decided to explicitly call it something else: a Control System. So it's not the same as a soul, or they would have called it tha...

Additionally, the resident souls are never mentioned in NTE. Just because it was true in NGE does not mean it's true in NTE (as with a lot of things that have changed). There is one part of Q that could have confirmed resident soul theory, and it was Fuyutski's infodump. He told Shin...

I have to agree with most of what Bagheera says ... The resident soul thing is never mentioned in the movies and takes a lot of stretching/fanwanking to make it work. The only unit that was only ever to be fully confirmed to have a resident soul, was unit-01 with Yui. All other units had some strang...
