Some hilarious math from the internets

β,B, or BETA is the second letter of the alphabet, meaning it's 2. EVA-02 is a definite 2.

So, add 2+2 and you get 4, and from the 3.0 you get 4+3 = 7! EVA:02'β is EVA-07! Makes PERFECT SENSE!

Newtype cover + Eva-02 lantern design = this movie will have a lot of (focus on?) Asuka. Cue the about-face from everyone who whined about how Anno had abandoned her.

For what it's worth, back in 2010, Anno drew up a sketch of God mode Eva-01, and designated it as EVA:01 α. Pic in the spoiler tags.

Maybe he just thinks that Greek letters look cool. Or perhpas these letters denote some sort of hierarchy between the Units regarding their role in Seele's ritual and blah blah blah. "P. M." almost certainly stands for Production Model.

These sketches make me wish that Anno put away directing for a while and did some animation for serious.

If promo images and other various illustrations were indicative of content, NGE would be a girl's love series centered around Asuka and Rei with Shinji as a minor supporting character.

You have a pretty good memory SaltyJoe, it could be quite possible that it's simply an alternative designation for each Eva (even though I wonder which letter should be given to 00 in this case).
Also, I completely agree with you about the promotional material.

'Course.

Could we really expect Anno to do anything different?

More likely he'll give us all the Asuka we've ever asked for, but only give her to us in ways that would make you want to slit your wrists. Most likely a depressing scene where the world ends to a joyous rendition of "Fly Me to The Moon".

I like to thing he's going to utterly destroy her, worse than he did at the end of the series/in EOE. Like, everything that can go wrong will go wrong. Did you see that confident smile at the end of 2.0 when she had her
SPOILER: Show
eyepatch
? Yeah. That's going to be the only time she smiles in the entire movie, besides when she cracks.

And it'll be set to "Kom, Sutter Tod" instead.

If it follows the current trend of replacing the soundtrack in dramatic moments with childhood diddies, I think you can expect something closer to this.

And if you study the lyrics, you'll realize the Germans, like Hideaki Anno, are rather keen on traumatizing children from a young age. It's a match made in Instrumentality.

I don't know about Anglo-Saxons but many Italian kid's songs are quite traumatising as well.

Oh God. A song like that is gonna be paired with something really traumatizing.

Asuka is going to get shot to pieces by SEELE goons. And then in Eva 4.0, she'll come back as The One.

She's going to travel through the multi-verse, killing off Soryu and all the other alternate versions of herself in order to became a godlike being?

Never has the phrase "Saving Asuka from herself " been so apropos... Do you think the Quickenings will include cross-shaped explosions? Or just bring on the urge to jump up and down like a maniac?

Cross-shaped fo' sho'. I've grown fond of those, and having Asuka cause them by killing AU versions of herself would be cool.

Gentlemen, gentlemen! You're thinking far too small! The obvious thing would be for Asuka to team up with hundreds of her AU selves to wage war on the Rei clones. It would be like an LOTR battle, but with naked and giggling pasty girls.

Someone call up Issei Mataloun and get this script in Anno's hands STAT!

Cast ye in the name of God, you're right! Forget the explosions, the Quickenings will instead fatten her up, then just slap black paint on EVA-02, and tell Chiaki Konaka we got the climatic conclusion to The Big O right here.
