I think the problem here is that we have 2 camps ("Shinji is just a kid, lay off" and "Shinji needs to get his shit together and stop being selfish"), but most things aren't black and white, this topic included. Shinji is no normal 14 year old - he has a god-on-a-leas...

This is the only place I could think it would be posted, so is there any confirmed date if/when we'll get a 3.0 CRC?

IMO, it seems to me like Anno had 2 ideas for NTE. The first was basically NGE, with a few twists but otherwise similar to the original series, or more similar than it is now. This is evidenced by 1.11 basically being the first 6 episodes, and 2.22 being similar to the series as well, with a few cha...

Was her refusal on the grounds of free will/stated preferences or simply that she had not been ordered to by Gendo? I got the overwhelming impression that she would've read "War and Peace" cover to cover twice without complaint if she had been given such orders Whether she actually re...

I'd say it's almost the same as with the reasons lots of people don't like her here (although I like her). Basically, she takes the place of a popular character, one whose thoughts, hopes, fears, etc. we know very well. One whose characterization path was carved from the beginnin...

I'm still iffy on whether it's Kyoko or Mari's mom. On one hand, the hair and the barrette remind me of Asuka, but on the other, the face, plaid shirt, and glasses are a lot more evocative of Mari. And while it's not really correct to take things from NGE, especially after Q, I seem ...

I know it's not on topic about the LCL thing and I apologize, but this is a theory about the Wunder, so... What if it's Unit-07, at least in a roundabout way? We have one missing Angel (11) and in the Angel-numbering thread, some people were thinkning that Wunder may be a stripped do...

09 being Wunder's core does make some sort of sense, but it opens up a few questions: 1) How did they take the core from the angel without killing it? They had captured Tuniel and stripped it of its flesh ( :cringe: ), but it still had its core with it. 2) Wunder is now using 01 ...

Write : Fuyutsuki explained, "The Rei you know is one of Yui-kun's clones. She is preserved within Eva-01, the same as your mother." That's true, but does that fact discredit her from being her own person? I'm not sure. Rebuild Rei II seemed to have really started developing a...

Just for a quick jump back to the numbering thing: I don't think Kawuro being "demoted" to the 13th leaves the First spot vacant at all. In the Bible, it's said that God is the "Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end". Kawuro mentions that second part, actually (p...

If the Geofront has become a core, or at the very least something extremely angelic ( that face ), what does that mean for humanity? Is the Geofront/Earth a core that people are being instrumentalized (?) into, like when GNR collects souls in EOE into a giant...phallus or something? ...

But they couldn't know that Shinji was wearing it anymore and that the pattern came from Kaworu, so the logical thing would be that they all thought that Shinji was the source of that pattern. That would mean that even though Asuka is "taking care" of Shinji in the desert, she must ha...

I'd like to see them try, and see what the "battery" of their precious Wunder thinks about it. I'm not so sure about that any more. I mean, yes, Yui's in there and possibly Rei, considering the situation, and for the past 14 years they've been fine, even when Shinji was re...

:D It's a great feeling, isn't it? What I said in my initial reaction post about being glad that Q has quelled my desire to speculate and analyze has changed quite drastically over the course of today. I've been reading EGF practically all day, trying to figure out what I watched, readi...

If only. My laptop is old as all hell.

@seph is that free?

@heromaster doesn't that degrade the quality, though?

Actually, looking it up quickly just now, it does seem as though the ps3 can play .mkv files, but I have no way to research it at the moment (in class).

Why are you waiting for the 720p version, shouldn't the 1080 be even better? While that's true, some people just can't run the 1080p version on their computers for whatever reason. I know I barely can, on my 6 year old laptop. That said, I'm totally ready for this 1080p version; goi...
