Does Shinji's breakdown in E25/26 of the TV series happen BEFORE or AFTER he gets in to 01 in EoE?
One guy is saying it happens up to the point where Misato sends him away in the elevator before exploding, another says it happens during instrumentality at the end of the movie.
I can see how it could happen during the first half of the movie when Shinji is depressed and refuses to move or do anything, and I can also see how it could happen during instrumentality since the whole point of TV E26 was to establish that he is himself and wants to keep living in this world.
What does /a/ think?
There are some things you need to pay attention to, like the dead Misako lying around.
Is this supposed to be her?
That's Ritsuko's mom after she jumped off the magi system and killed herself.
Pay attention before you ask stupid questions.
Well are you going to enlighten me or not, anon?
No, if you can't watch the series and comprehend basic plot points and don't have the intellectual capability of using something as simple as Google, I'm not helping with shit. Evangelion is a basic show, it's not hard to comprehend anything from it.
I'm leaving this thread now, and I'm sure it'll die because nobody wants to deal with a retard who can't watch animu properly,
Any response is a waste of your precious time.
Episodes 25 and 26 of the TV series run parallel to EoE and key events line up, mainly Asuka in the lake before the MP Eva attack, Gendou taking Rei away to begin instrumentality, Ritsuko dead, Misato shot on the floor, and then 26 is the mental breakdown Shinji has inside of 01 during instrumentality before finally deciding that he can learn to love himself and wants to live and be himself. Congratulations at the end of 26 is Shinji making it so that anyone who wants to be themselves again can regain their AT Field go on living in EoE.
So it's not that the episodes take place in a certain part of EoE, but rather they run at the same time as EoE.
it's happening during his becoming the Tree of Life. When Giant Naked Rei appears and gives him a choice. As everybody is becoming LCL, 25/26 happens and he chooses to return the humanity to individual beings despite all the pain that separation causes.
There's a point at the end of 25 where it basically tells you in big white letters on a black screen "and then, Instrumentality started". So 25 is before Instrumentality, and 26 is during
In Tang, eg during instrumentality.
I put them after the second water drop. Shinji has a line something like "This isn't right" in EoE which to me is the moment after congratulations
