(I'm personally considering saving up so I can see Rebuild 03/04 over there...If so, it'd be my 1st visit to Japan either way...) 2) Can you at least tell me the context of Shinji already seeing Rei 3 in the person hell train so soon? After a battle or during his running away bit? Oh, and does his SDAT play the same songs and tracks (25=You are the only one, 26=Blue Legend)?
Lucky, yes. The very first thing I had to learn to say was "Nihongo wa karimasen", because people come up to me and immediately start speaking Japanese.
Rei appears very briefly during the second train sequence. The first train sequence was just voice overs of Gendo and Yui talking about the naming their son or daughter, and "Ayanami" got brought into the convo. The second time, it was Shinji sitting across a little Shinji (I think) talking about piloting Eva (I think), and Rei appears very briefly at the end of the train and says a line (I'll pay more attention when I watch it again).
The songs on Shinji's SDAT sound the same, although I never really payed that much attention to it during the TV series.
As for the prospects of 2:0, I'm actually really excited about it and expect it to have a lot of new stuff. Starting from after the battle with Sach, there were many new scenes, like Misato and Ritsuko on some kind of sit down escalator. The Kaworu bit is still a little confusing to me (no doubt because I'm no good with Japanese), even after reading reviews. There were a set of black boxes, some of them open, and Kaworu comes out of one and is greeted with a Seele 01 monolith. Perhaps these boxes have something to do with the Angels?
Oh, as far as the trip itself, I'll be documenting it on my website. But it appears that my sidekick doesn't support GPRS 3, so I won't be able to take pictures. My GF borrowed rockthing's camera, but there's no telling how soon I'll be able to put those online.
