Probably a screen size of 55 to 65 inches?
I myself don't think the films would benefit much from an upgrade to 4K since pretty much no animation is done at that level of detail. A lot of titles would have to be upscaled and that can introduce more issues. It's not my field but I think while Akira, Studio Ghibli titles and maybe a few other older hand drawn titles shot on film might get a boost from 4K, for the most part I feel Blu-ray is an ideal format for anime in general. NGE + EOE should likely never try to go past Blu UNLESS if they wanted to keep the Episodes at 1080p and fit more on a disc without sacrificing quality. They could put the entirety of NGE, Death & EOE with the same AV quality in a boxset and use fewer discs than they would have to on BD.

Uncertain. They'd likely have to upscale the older films, they could be making Thrice with 4K in mind, but if Khara really works at it anything is possible. And if they ever were willing to go the extra distance and do some touch up work on the older CG elements in the earlier films for a future home video re-release - those CG extras in 2.0 could be improved
- I don't know if anyone would complain.
Anywho, it's cool Khara put the three films up on Youtube for free. I can't think of many studios willing to do that.
