That being said, I wouldn't change much about Eva. Maybe explain a few things more clearly, like the FAR and the role of Seele in everything.

I made a topic once where we discussed whether or not the series was long enough. Most said that Evangelion would benefit from more episodes, but not many more than maybe three or four, at most six.

That's exactly my thought about their relationship, I never understood all the KaworuXRei stuff but a triangle between those three on the other hand....

Well, in the second draft of episode 24 Rei volunteered to do that, because she was aware of Shinji's feelings for Kaworu (daaw), but Shinji refused to let her pilot Eva-01.

I would just delete Mari's entire existence.
Q  SPOILER: Show
Every other character is fine. Mari is just so irrelevant to everything and adds nothing whatsoever to the series besides being Asuka's sidekick. We thought we were going to learn about who she is and why she is important in 3.0 but no. There is one more movie left and I doubt they will be able to shed light on her background/story while still sticking to the main plot.

But she doesn't even exist in the first place. This isn't the "What would you change about the Rebuilds" topic, you know.

And let's not be sloppy about spoilers when we still have a couple of weeks to go.

If you're not going to extend it by a whole season, then you'd be better off just scrapping and replacing most of episodes 7-14.

I would introduce Asuka from the very beginning and add in a situation in which she can't pilot because her Eva unit is undergoing repairs until episode 8 when it's finally fixed.

I can see this having some hilarious scenes. The thought of Asuka being left out of the battle with Ramiel, her giving Shinji the shit treatment when he first arrives, her trying to seduce him, and so on. You could have a lot of fun with that. QUICK! TO THE FANFICTION WRITERS!

It would also lead to endless boasting about how her Unit 02 is the best and how she can't believe that a test type like Unit 01 "got lucky" on it's first outing against an Angel. :tongue:

Oops. :tongue: Anyway, if Asuka had seen the berserk Unit 01 from the beginning, would she had gotten the same "Is that what i'm piloting?" reaction, or would she be like, "Eh, that's why they call them test types." That's a cool reason for wanting Asuka to be around since episode 1 due to the possibilities of her launching her own covert investigation ala Misato and Kaji snooping around.

I don't think Asuka would have the means or interests in launching her own investigation, i don't think she would have a reason to suspect anything, either.

I think seeing the Unit 01's god powers would actually be benefical for her in the long run, if she knew that Unit 01's was so vastly superior to her eva in it's very nature, then she wouldn't have been as broken with Shinji surpassing her, and might even be proud that she could measure up to him up to the very end (EoE).

-o-; That is very nearly sig-worthy.

I would make Toji and Hikari pilots. Their relationship could be subsequently Anno-ised to become an attack on romance in mecha anime. Also, more MP Evas.

Hikari pilots an MP Eva. Toji pilots Eva-03. Kensuke gets to pilot Pen-Pen.

And Kaji gets to pilot Misato's body. MP Evas are too much for Hikari, don't you think?
