I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed that.
Nadia really is a great series. It's a shame that the island episodes came into existence though because if they hadn't, this would be an even greater classic than it already is.
I found Jean & Nadia's relationship to be far more enthralling than that of Shinji and Asuka's, perhaps because despite their problems, they actually try to solve them, unlike the latter's. In fact, one could go as far as saying that Shinji/Asuka is the very antithesis of Jean/Nadia.
Making all the comparisons and differences between Evangelion and Nadia has been very interesting as well.
Just a few examples include:
-The giant Adam on Red Noah VS the giant Adam found in the White Moon.
-The Neo-Atlantean claim that humanity has reached their evolutionary peak is an excuse to control the human race physically VS the SEELE claim that humanity has reached their evolutionary potential is an excuse to control the human race metaphysically
Reminiscing back, if Nadia hadn't existed, then it may very well be that Evangelion wouldn't have existed as well.
