Rei and Shinji's relationship doesn't have to be 'reset' but it will likely adjust to certain criteria.

This isn't really a "theory" per se. It's something I noticed a while back that I thought was an interesting parallel. Note: this only makes sense if you've watched the Mtv Series "The Maxx" or read the comic book. Understanding Evangelion through The Maxx. Tokyo 3 is...

@Kendrix The problem remains that Misato doesn't give them anything to train on. Socializing? Well there's ways to do that which don't involve company ordered sleep overs. And the "obvious objection" I was referring to is that typically when you get 14 year olds together they e...

Well I mean I can see why the dance bit was omitted. The dance training would basically be a big A/S shipper's wet dream come true (can't have none of that, friend). But if your route right now is the Rei track and you want that emphasized, then don't have Asuka living in the dam...

Here's another thing that's more of a nit pick but I thought was strange. There's obviously no dancing in 2.0. I've come to terms with this by now. BUT that means there's technically no "harmonization" routine for them to actually practice doing. So how does Misato just...

I get what Gasmask is saying, and I guess it's a matter of time constraint again. Which I suppose its an argument in favor of a series since it gives more than enough time to do these things leisurely in arcs. But aside from the obvious time problems there's still the weird thing about putti...

Asuka is done as far as second film is considered I would argue that simply on the basis that the Bardiel incident had (or should of had) an effect on his decisions in the final act of 2.0. He failed once, he won't this time. But this is done really vaguely. The pep talk is given by Mar...

My list of unreasonable wants. - It'd be fun if Kawrou actually played music in his Eva. As in his Eva is preloaded with audio files that he accesses in battle. Have it be a Alex Delarge type character quirk. It gets him going, so to speak. - Asuka is 'contaminated' but it's a benign...

I don't see how a cut away shot would muddy anything up.

I don't mind that Asuka got mindraped in this film. I really don't. Hell, it happens in the original series anyway so why not? However, if this is to be understood as Arael's 'replacement' in this continuity then it might actually be a boon to the character. In the series, after ...

I would almost bank on the alternative due to the amount of grief that's been generated as a result of Asuka's rough treatment in 2.0.

My hope is that Shinji and Rei chill out in the Eva for much of 3.0. There's so many characters in Rebuild who are insufficiently developed at this point that there needs to be an expenditure of time to address that.

The way I was thinking about it is the shifting alliances angle. Asuka having to choose between friendship and her career as a pilot. The "battlefield confession" bit belongs in a doujin, I agree, but in my mind it's not remarkably cheesier than the "GRAB MY HAND!" at the end...

Given what we know from the narration to the preview, I have some hunches as to possible plot devices we could see. This is an idea I've been kicking around in my head for a while, and it sounds reasonable, but who knows if it'll play out this way (it most certainly wont but nevermind th...
