I just hope if we do get another Impact it's called "The Great Beyond Impact" Fun fact about Evangelion! If anybody remembers, we are treated to a look of the plug depth monitoring system just before Shinji achieves the fabled 400% synch rate. The final value is listed as "The Gr...

I think I'll be waiting until I become awesome on this forum before I post any photos. Then, the shock value will be increased and I can blow people away.

Research complete! Gendo needed Eva-01 to be activated in order for his plans to come to fruition, and Shinji was the only one that could activate Unit-01 at this point. Back to the topic at hand, Kaworu's most evident purpose was to provide a base for the dummy system that was later used on the...

Could've been, but there's no evidence to support it. It is the theory that I'd get behind, though.

The dummy plug is precisely what it sounds like; it's a plug that has the dummy system downloaded into it. Control can be switched between the human pilot and the dummy system at any time.

I'd have to go with Emerson, Lake and Palmer's three-part epic of "Karn Evil 9". It's not so much the entire song that relates to Evangelion, but rather the song as a whole. Combined with the music, it's a pretty amazing experience. However, there is one line from the 3rd i...

My desktop is sporting the official title for the next Rebuild movie in black text against a white backdrop. It's been that way ever since that title was released. Before that, it was a massive GIF of Unit-03.

I completely agree with Donutking concerning EoE, in the manner that there is no individuality. However, I'm more inclined to agree with Anon when it comes to EoTV, simply because of what we see in both instances.

Part of the delight of Eva is the process of answering all of the unanswered questions in the show. It's one of the things that made me stick with it for so long. Yes, I understand that we could just take everything at face value, but then where would we be now? This is certainly more fun.

I suppose it really all depends on which episode you're looking at. Some of the content from the beginning of the show was nearly nothing but action, whereas episodes 20-26 were pretty damn introspective.

Oh, come now. Speculation is fun! Some time after that sequence, we're treated to a view of Shinji's theater, his closed-off version of the world. In your opinion, is this during or before instrumentality? I'm inclined to believe from the quote you made that he's knee-deep in it by t...

This sign doesn't explicitly mean that it is the end of a repeat; rather, it means that you need to return to the first time that you saw the repeat symbol, or failing that, return to the beginning altogether. The sign is single use only. Once you've repeated it once, the sign is ignored. In...

So, instrumentality is only partially complete during the sequence that I mentioned?
