∆ Finally that subject can be put to rest.
Shinji: "Sooner or later I'll be betrayed... And they'll leave me. Still... I want to meet them again, because I believe my feelings at that time were real."
Ryuko: "I'm gonna knock ya on your asses!"
-Asuka: THINK IN GERMAN!!! -Shinji: Öh... Baumkuchen...

Would definitely be my reaction in that situation

The movies function on their own terms. If people can't accept them on those terms, and keep expecting them to be NGE, then they probably should have realized a while ago that they weren't going to have a good time. ~ Words of wisdom courtesy of Reichu

The members of SEELE are actually surviving members of the First Ancestral Race in disguise, and the HIP is just an attempt to bring the rest of their race back from the dead.

@Ghdust: You haven't been lurking in the EGF Discord under another name by any chance, have you? :nyao: This sounds so much like a "tin foil hat conspiracy theory" I've been rambling about for fun over the past couple of days as to be unnerving.

I don't know if this one counts, but how about the "Do you love me" theory (here's a video explaining it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PcXGgjyV4WA)

At first I was pretty skeptical, because it seems strange that Asuka/Shinji's relationship wouldn't experience some sort of easily identifiable change, but it would be awfully Evangelion for there to be little clear difference. Especially when you consider how inconsequential their kiss ultimately was, and how Gendo/Ritsuko's relationship progresses.

My headcanon/Fanwank is basically that the show was originally planned to be more explicit, but was shot down due to censorship issues, so Anno had to be a lot more vague in his presentation by dropping subtle clues. This also explains why we see Shinji/Asuka having intercourse in EOE, as EOE was bereft of a lot of those restrictions (Cue:" I'm so fucked up").

The conflict between adamite and lilin factions of the first race originally began because Adam life forms kept stepping on lilin life forms.

Are we allowed to use stuff that we were going to use for fanfiction?

Kiel Lorenz is a cyborg naga-fishman-thing left over from an antediluvian race created & destroyed by Lilith.
*His spine goes on much farther than a human's could and suggests that he has no legs.
SPOILER: Show

(note also the similarity in structure to the discarded prototype Evas)
*This would explain his hatred for Lilith and his nihilistic despair.
*In Rebuild there are Seven Seele members, again left over from a prior creation, who instructed our civilization. This clearly refers to the Seven Sages of the Sumerians, the Apkallu, who were, indeed, fishmen. Could the like not apply in some respect to the original?
*A lamia is a creature with a snake's tail instead of legs. Lamia is also the translation of Lilith in the Latin Vulgate.
*His name, Kiel. The underside of a boat. What could this mean, but that his lower half is aquatic?

I think the imagery offers itself well to this theory (not much a "crazy one" as your ideas actually are a certain amount of sense here...), but there' son way that could be literal in Eva's story logic...I think this meant to show that Kiel is merely augmented in a lot of ways to the point that he'd become more and more mechanical to the point that much of his own humanity had been lost, both figuratively and literally. Plus, this augmentation always stuck me as life support in that he'd pushed himself well past his biological expiration so that he could see 3rd Impact/Instrumentality come to fruition.

Interesting theory all the same though!

Hot take

NGE is just a vr game made by a 25 kensuke living in his parents basement, but it becomes popular enough that hes able to move out and develops a true ending which is EoE, and thats why theres a frame of Misato merch in that one scene.
