please remind me what NME stands for.

And Reich, that's craziness.

Jimmiel, there's no reason to doubt that robotics has enabled them to extend their lives. "Robotics hasn't been around long enough" seems kind of silly considering the territory.

Would that really satisfy the five-act structure? If they were to ever bother depicting the timeskip at all, I don't think I would want Shinji's specter to be hanging over the full length of the proceedings, demanding tokens of angst from the cast at every turn. Even 3.0 manages to have dia...

VERY well said. However, I stand by my criticisms, as they are based on a lack of character development and basic exposition, rather than frustration at this new mythology being incomprehensible. It is incomprehensible, and I expect nothing less. I'm not complaining about Shogouki being turned i...

Yeah, which is why I give him a pass for ignoring Kaworu and yanking the lances.

I can post a slew of environmental shots displayed during Q if you'd like aswell as a far off shot of the earth as seen from space. I would like that. I cannot reconcile the idea that the clearly aborted 3I (stick to this instead of TI) as seen at the end of movie 2 would have wiped out...

Another thought: the outside world must be dead under all aspects - including oxygen - if Shinji has to wear an astronaut-like suit to go out with Kaworu. No particular reason to believe this. Areas near the epicenter of impact-events are broadly hazardous to life in general. Specifically, in the s...

What I took from that (and connecting it to stuff from the original, specifically EoE and Keel's remains) is that SEELE is formed by, in plainest terms, humans who went full-cyborg. Basically brains in jars. Or here, (artificial?) brains inside monoliths (notice the patterns...

Will Shinji ever find love in the end?

No, because while Shinji has love interests, Eva has never been about Shinji finding love. Furthermore, he's a child.

1 & 2 had me on the edge of my seat, heart in my mouth, jaw on the floor. This one had me checking the timer to see when it would be over. Extremely light on character development, in contrast to 1 & 2. Will watch again once DVD comes out, maybe seeing some of the action in decent quality &#...

We're never shown a closeup of the city after the Door of Guf opens over it, so we can't say that the citizens DIDN'T all die and turn into red giants. I can. :nya: And yeah, I'm throwing "retconn" around loosely, and the previews don't count. But its clear there was a...

judging from the tone of the scene, her expression, and the history of Misato & Shinji on the topic of Shinji being willing/able to take any action whatsoever, I'm inclined to go with the meaner interpretation.

There are fits of inspiration in between the usual back-and-forth, so it's worth skimming through, and slowing down for the good parts. Could be my AS acting up, but I'm not sure what you're implying. 39.... Pages. And no, I didn't meant to imply anything, just clarifying that by th...

However, I am disappointed in 3.0 - as 1.0 and 2.0 had much action, and storyline development. I think Anno might be trying to place us in Shinji's shoes Agreed, I made some points along this line in my post as well. Anno has always done this. Hence his crown of "Master Troll." Just l...
