Alright /a/ the New Years thread was pretty successful and I have nothing better to do, so let's do this again.
Ask me anything about Evangelion and I will answer to the best of my ability. I am confident I can answer just about any question you have.
Is Unit 1 best girl?
Why do people call it a mindfuck?
Best girl is Leliel and if you think otherwise you have shit taste.
Because certain sequences in the show take place inside the minds of major characters.
Why did Shinji see Rei before Misato picked him up in the first episode?
So are the movies recaps or sequels?
Aside from the references to Freudian psychoanalytics, religious bits, and 1960s-70s Science Fiction, did they make any references to their own previous works?
Is 4.0 going to be shit?
>Alright /a/ the New Years thread
That was pretty lewd.
Popular theory is it's either Lilith calling out to Shinji or the Rei/Lilith hybrid using its god powers to travel through time. I am of the opinion that the first theory is more plausible.
It's gonna be pretty unclear until the 4th movie comes out, but as of right now it's PROBABLY a sequel. It could also be another possible universe examined by Shinji during 3rd Impact.
There are references to some older anime but nothing in reference to other Gainax anime comes to mind. There might be some in the first half of the show though.
Nah it'll probably be pretty cool.
How would you define Shinji's sexuality?
Is he gay? straight? asexual? Is he repulsed by the idea of sex, or simply devoid of normal sexual thoughts? Why does he apparently masturbate to a comatose Asuka in EoE? (I haven't watched it)
Do you expect to get buttrammed by Anno again for 4.0 like he did with EoE.
>I haven't watched it
>Nah it'll probably be pretty cool.
What do you expect from it?
Give me a break, I've been busy.
It'll probably end on a much lighter note than EoE but the themes of the original ending will still be left intact.
For more than a decade?
Is the loop theory bullshit?
It's pretty plausible but I doubt Anno would go for something a lot of people are fully expecting.
If someone is actually buying the whole series why do people say it's not worth getting Death/Rebirth when it has the crucial set up for EoE?
What exactly do you mean by crucial setup?
If you have time to post on /a/ you have enough time to watch EoE.
If I get this right, Death and Rebirth was a recap movie for the series, with the exception of the last two episodes, and the first half of EoE (up until Asuka gets eaten and Shinji goes full despair), and it just ends there. The only reason for watching it is the theme song.
Oh shit wait up. I thought that D/R was all recap except last like 30 minutes. But I just read and realized that the last 30 minutes was incorporated into EoE.
I havent watched it in a while.
Why isn't Shinji a girl? Anno missed out on a great opportunity to make one of the most fapped to and waifu claimed anime girl in history.
you missed one there, The hallways in nerv hq, particularly with the the vending machines, are almost the same as sets from the excelion, seen here
