I find it highly inappropriate to associate Gendo with that song, because Shinji and Rei were not deliberately involved in Near-Third Impact, but merely started it in their innocence. The use of this song in that scene perfectly reflects this innocence. Gendo embodies the very opposite of innocence,...

Are you deliberately alluding to "Tsubasa Wo Kudasai" with that choice of words?

As for anti-AT fields, I count them as a type of AT field anyway. You shouldn't. They're exact opposites. The way AT fields appear to work in NGE and Rebuild of Evangelion is that they are near-impenetrable shells. If two of them collide (like in any regular Evangelion vs. Angel battle&...

What if Unit-13 never had an AT field, but instead generates an Anti-AT field? Unit-13 not possessing an AT field explains the following: - the need for RS Hopper drones; - Mari's Anti-AT shells pass through it harmlessly. However, Unit-13 generating an Anti-AT field explains a few more things: ...

Personally, I don't think she acts particularly mature at any given moment (at least more so than she was in 2.0). I feel like she might be a little bit mentally older, given her sort of motherly approach to interacting with Shinji (am I the only one that noticed that?), You are...

I consider myself to be in the "camp" that views LCL exposure as the source of the "curse of Eva", and I can offer a supporting argument, based on Rei. Consider Rei in Rebuild 2.0. At the marine nature preserve, we are told that the fish there are only able to survive inside thei...

Well, if Gendo had known about the Wunder, she probably had some schematics and may have hacked into the surveillance systems of the ship to locate him. Getting back on topic, how do Gendo's plans link to reuniting with Yui at this stage? He seems to have got her trapped in the hands of Wille a...

I posted this before in the SEELE thread, but it may bear repeating here. It is an interpretation of the situation Gendo is in at the start of Rebuild 3.0 (not as rosy as it may seem), what Gendo is hoping to achieve, and how he gets around to achieving it. I can offer a plausible theory tha...

@ObsessiveMathsFreak: I do not deny that the Rei apparition that Rei 3.0 sees is relevant, but there is another such apparition that needs to be accounted for in order for your theory to make sense. I am speaking of the Rei apparition that Shinji sees shortly after arriving in Tokyo-3, before he eve...

As for the scene (A) , I didn't saw the fact they were with their backs to each other as the sign that Asuka refused "Shinji's world"(i.e. his network of friends),but just Asuka being Asuka, admitting grudging that she misjudged Shinji's worth, but still too pr...

I would need to rewatch the scene in question, but at some point the DSS choker turns into a ring of orbiting crystals around Kaworu's neck, well before his death. At some point (possibly the same moment) Shinji points out to Kaworu that something is happening with the DSS choker. This h...

[SPOILERS] Hand-holding

This post previously appeared in another thread, which had already petered out by then. (In fact, it was my first post after leaving this forum in November 2012 to avoid getting spoiled.) Since then, I have slightly reworked it, and wish to present it as a new discussion topic in its own rig...

Why doesn't Misato kill Shinji? (Even though she could activate the DSS Choker) - Because she is not a cold-blooded killer, even if she tried. - Because she still has feelings for Shinji (to her own surprise). She wants to hate him, but can't. - (Speculation) Because...

Fuyutsuki said that Shinji's memories of the events has been erased. I wonder if we will see Ritsuko trying something to restore these memories, they must be important to make someone took the trouble to erase them. I think Fuyutsuki means that Shinji was either too young or too traumatised to ...

When Yui was absorbed into Unit-01, Shinji was maybe three years old. At that time, Ritsuko was too young to be working as a scientist at NERV. Given the importance of the event, plus the fact that NERV is a secretive organization, plus the fact that Gendo (the most secretive of them all) is...

Quoting myself from a page ago. I believe it still applies to the last post above this one. No, look at the chin. Fuyutsuki has a very elongated chin. The man in the foreground of the photo barely has any chin at all. My guess concerning the foreground-guy is that if he is meant to resemble anyone, ...

Point #2 seems fairly obvious, but #4 was the first one that occurred to me while watching the film. The whole point of their operation was to retrieve unit-01 from lunar orbit. They're very much aware that she's fully sentient, and after the operation itself they also know that she's a...

Given that, why did they not simply execute him? It's morbid to think about, but this is a military agency, efficiency is their #1 priority. They're willing to sacrifice equipment (and probably personnel, judging from the "completing the mission is the top priority" line while...

I believe the time skip between the opening battle and Shinji's awakening amounts to a few weeks at most. Basically, enough time to: - Repair Unit-02 after the space battle - Upgrade Unit-08 - Install Unit-01 as Wunder's engine (not yet fully connected and completely untested) In fac...
