It's too weird for me as well to view EoE superior to the series or vice versa. Maybe because I'm a Concurrency nut. Speaking of which.. @Tumbling Down How about watching episodes 1-24, and then watch the Concurrency edit? It felt even more impatcful to me the way such edits were done, hones...

I don't think that follows. That's the one scene that shows that Asuka thought of it as a competition ("That's it, then. I lost.") It's not a parallel to the Gendo/Rei scene at all, since Shinji's thought there was "Why won't he talk to me like that?&q...

The flashback to the aftermath of the kiss scene, the "why are you here?" bit during the mindrape, the part with Shinji and Rei talking at the train station and Asuka going "So that's it then. I've lost," the "I hate everyone!" speech, the bit with Kaji . . . l...

Actually a case could be made that Rei in 23 rejected the idea of wanting to become one with Shinji in preference for staying true to Gendo's plan (which in turn is why she seems to NOT reject him in EoTV) while in 23' her rejection is of the angel's idea of bringing Shinji down...

You have pretty much the same view I have. I liked that 1.0 and 2.22 had filled out a bit more with Shinji acting like a normal boy, showing him doing more in his personal life that didn't always involve a mental breakdown (balance is always good), but yeah, looks like we see the 3rd on...

(Interestingly enough the DC doesn’t shed anymore light on Asuka’s possible suicide attempt than the OAs did. Instead it just sheds more light on Asuka’s body during the scene itself.) I agree with most everything you brought up, but here, I'd contend that it did shed more light on that...

I would venture to say classic Greek and Shakespearen tradegies are darker and more grim than Eva. In those stories, most if not all characters die in the end and offer zero hope. EoE is practically a fairytale, honestly. Yui-sama saying anyone can come back alive? That's pretty absurd for a tra...

There's an acquired taste for... Adamic features. Step aside Lilim!

In seriousness, the whole Rami-chan running gag is to mock the sexualization of girls like Rei and Asuka, and calling them "waifu/best girl" or what not.

Weird. Somehow I'd never noticed that the huge cross didn't do anything to the ship. I think I assumed for the longest time that it damaged the frigate and that's why it split in three when the Eva lifted it. Even after learning from the forum here that ships generally aren't built ...

Interesting suggestion that I hadn't thought of. I checked the script to see how they were referred, and the term used is 大火柱, basically "flaming pillar". This suggests that they aren't intended to be cross-shaped explosions, since those are usually referred to as 光の柱, "pilla...

Boils down to what you look for in the story of Evangelion. I wanted to find something (well not intentionally at the time) with relatable characters beyond a little quirk (i.e. "Oh I totally see myself in him/her because he/she is an outcast!"). The way NGE thoroughly exam...

Hate is a strong word, but I certainly would say I dislike her in both versions. OA Asuka is jerk and a tease, DC Asuka is more pitiable but no less culpable for her behavior. To some extent I honestly wish she never joined the cast at all... planned from the beginning as she is she's still a d...

oh also i actually think the changed bardiel scene was there for a reason, it is somewhat foreshadowing what happens at the end of 2.0, with bardiel Shinji refuses to act and destroy bardiel for fear of hurting Asuka, as a result his sight and control is taken away from him and destruction all arou...

I think Asuka would just put up a mask around Gendo to hide her discontent with him.
Otherwise, those two thick headed personalities clashing would cause a 3rd Impact :lol: It's a humorous thought to believe Gendo was afraid to actually meet Asuka now.

I believe the pitfall of NTE is their flauntness to add unnecessary stuff to replace things performed better in the originals. The most notable example being when the Dummy System activates in Ha, Khara somehow believed it would be better to have Shinji look at a red star field. It simply gave less ...

Seeing discussions like this almost makes me question just what kind of Eva fan am I? Admittedly, the first time I watched NGE, it was with the DC episodes; I didn't even know it was retcon material back then or such a thing as "OA." So whenever I think NGE, I think DC. Watching OA sti...

I strongly suggest re-watching EoE. Whenever I feel down, EoE perks me up. Why? Yui-sama gives inspiring words; words that often go unnoticed and thus leads some viewers to believe EoE is dark-dark and gloomy of utter despair. Now pay attention. Let Yui-sama lift the very whims of your soul and supp...
