シンエヴァ  山下いくと

シンエヴァ status upgraded to HAPPENING


I'm not sure what this is supposed to mean. What exactly does the book say and what does it have to do with Evangelion?

Finally, Shinji feels that he has horribly wronged Misato with what he did 14 years ago, so I doubt that he'll feel offended if she had a child, and even less that he'll feel deadly jealously and that Misato abandoned him. He doesn't feel like he's horribly wronged Misato. Shinji is...

I just don't see the kid having a role in Shinji's story, since it's entirely unnecessary. Why not exactly? What if the kid is older and hates Shinji? Or what if Misato knows that she has replaced Shinji's absence with a child of her own and is on bad terms with both of them? There ...

suggesting it won't involve Shinji resolving his issues and moving forward is naive. And how would a baby not be a symbol of "hope"? What better way to signal hope in these desolate times than new life? If Misato and Kaji having an offspring in the fourteen year time period ends up be...

EOE's ending wasn't a downer but the first portion of the film was. I'm not saying that FINAL will be all negative but expecting optimism throughout the whole film is kinda silly to me. And I don't mean Misato shares all of Gendo's traits but they have made her out the be the Gen...

No, I merely assume pregnancy and childbirth; or are you suggesting that she doesn't even carry her own baby, but uses a surrogate mother? Stretching things even more, there! The baby could have been born a few years after the end of 2.0 when things were a little calmer. Which would make the ch...

That's assuming that Misato would be the primary caretaker. Which is not what the speculation suggests.

Shinji needs to resolve his issues in Final, and an added source of angst isn't going to help with that (and that's to say nothing of the fact that the angel/lilin conflict is already Cain/Abel when you think about it -- children of Adam, children of Lilith . . . meh, close enough)....

I could see a lot of ways how the preview could turn out: 1. Worst case scenario #1 it's another draft clip of The Peaceful Times Shinji Asuka and Rei trek. 2. Worst case scenario #2 it's another upgraded CGI clip of Unit 02+08 battling giant AT Fields. 3. It could be a 15 second clip like t...

Is there any weight to the claim that Final will be called Evangelion 3.0+1.0 instead of 4.0 or is that speculation?

Aren't they jumping the gun a bit though? That looks like young Mari, and she's holding Mari's glasses

Interestingly enough, Kaji’s voice is never heard in any of his sex scenes. This seems to ensure that the viewer would never see sex from Kaji’s perspective, not even subconsciously through the sound track. The only time the viewers experiences sex sounds is from Misato’s voice, audibly experiencin...

The only problem is that I always assumed that after their reunion Misato and Kaji only had sex once (in Episode 20), not because its the only time they are shown having sex but because it doesn't look like they both have decided to enter that kind of relationship before that. There'...

IIRC trains aren't so positive for the pilots. Maybe we're supposed to assume for Misato, being with Kaji brings about the same kinds of inner shame and reflection (about herself and her past actions and not the relationship in particular) that Shinji gets while piloting? I am notici...

I think this analysis makes really good points but I don't get why it had to be framed in the context of James Bond. Kaji is less of a specific deconstruction of James Bond and more of a general subversion of traditional masculinity and, along with Misato, gender relations. The James Bond relat...

I like how Kaji isn't confirmed to be dead, just like Klaatu. I didn't get anything like that from the Analysis. NGE Kaji is very much dead since there's literally no reason for him to be alive or any indication in the show that he would be. It seems the Klaatu reference only is applica...

Kaji is The Bond Girl, Not James Bond: An In-Depth Analysis

I figured I should make a separate post for this Analysis that's spreading on Tumblr, probably birthed right after the Asuka one since it references the same author. It's a Kaji character analysis called Kaji is The Bond Girl, Not James Bond: Emotional Disguises, Watermelons, and The Day The...

The original Asuka analysis must of sparked another analysis, this time on Kaji.

Here's the link to it.

I just finished reading this one. It's really detailed and this author mentioned a lot of stuff that I've never noticed till now.
