i never read that doujin (assuming that's what you're talking about), what does it involve?

also, i have been interested in learning more about the tree of life, a religious motif that appears frequently in the anime. if you want to know where each character sits on the tree of life, and it's significance... this link will surely clear that up. http://www.evamonkey.com/writings_chung01.htm

Few things to explain if you would:

1. nstrumentality: The time when all beings unite into one?
2. Shinji's Dad: He wanted to be with Yui, meaning he wanted to be the so called 'God' ? How did he hope to achieve this goal?
3. There was a rumour about 'Asuka' at the end being the united being of Rei, Misato and Asuka. Rei's arm with the same bandages, Misato's eyes and Asuka's physical shape? Is this purely a rumour?
4. Lilith and Adam are what? - Adam was created by mankind? Lilith was the start of everythng?
5. What was that big white thing that looked like Kaoru/Rei?
6. Shinji became a God and chose for everyone to die? - Total restart of the world?
7. Asuka survived because she had the same thoughts as Shinji?
8. Why did everyone see the one thing they wanted like the Dr. hugging her apprentice, then she turned into goo. Also what is that goo/slime?
9. Shinji became the tree of life? Yet he was the equivalency of God at the same time?
10. When they said everyone had an AT field. What did they mean?

I've actually got a LOT more questions. I only watched this again about a week ago.

Thanks in advance for answers.

Bye!

1. Correct. It is the regeneration of all souls into one.
2. To become one with god gives you omnipotant powers. You can be anywhere you choose. The only way he could become god is to become like an angel, thats why he tried to keep Rei around with him as long as he could, seeing how she's lilith, an angel. He hoped to fuse with her and become an angel himself.
3. Thats all that is. A rumor. When Asuka reapears, its Asuka. Not anybody else. She, like shinji, rejected instrumentality and reapeared on that desolate white sand beach. Thats as true as it gets.
4.Lilith and Adam are the first and second angels. Adam was copied by mankind - EVA. Lilith was used by mankind as a tool to creat third impact - Rei.
5. That was Lilith.
6. No. His indecisiveness caused the world to perish. He gave in to the red earth purification ceremony, but rejected instrumentality. That explains why only those who chose to reject it came back (Asuka and Shinji). Why were they the ones? Who cares, my favorite comes back in the end. Its a good, but archetipal, "hero comes back" ending for me.
7. Kinda. She probably felt as though her work here wasn't finished. So, much to my happiness, she rejected instrumentality and returned to her original form. Beaten, but alive, Asuka came back with the goal of continuing her life and searching for her definition ofperfection.
8. Thats still a mystery, even to me. Some say that it was like a last supper affair. They saw what they wanted to see after instrumentality and gave in to it. The goo, thats LCL.
9. The tree of life is the equivilant of God. Its the fusion of the fruit of knowledge and the fruit of man, I think. I'll look into that later.
10. It simply meant that everybody has a soul. An Absolute Terror field, A.T.field, is the light of your soul.

Post more questions if you'd like. I'd be glad to answer them.

Because they were out to get me.
Oh well, I'll just try again later. Until then, lets keep that same fire going here.

Why did you close my topics? Just curious. The first was different in the fact that it was a question/ answer type forum as opposed to a lets talk willy nilly about EVA forum. Secondly, why did you close the Rei or Asuka forum? There was no malicious intent put behind it. I just wanted to see for myself if me and the other Asuka fans were the majority or minority. Thats all. I respect your decisions as a moderator, but that hurt to see those closed. Anyways, I hope this is the end for that and I can start over new.
Thank you very much.

Some people may think I have a shallow mind but I want to state a point that many of us shared when watching the show. I saw the entire series and loved it. Once I watched the last 2 episodes, I was really disappointed on how things turned out. I expected fighting or some other cool stuff. Then I decided to download the subbed third movie (which is a re-edit of both the first and second movies) and as it started I was expecting that the ending would turn out good. It didn't. I didn't like it.

Now, for the next 4 movies that are going to be released, I do hope they re-tell the story in the correct way, giving it an ending that is worth to watch, because the other two aren't.

I guess. But everyone else is too quite. If she didn't speak up, who would? No one else had the ambition that she did. Rei did it because she was told to, and Shinji did it to get praise from everyone else. Asuka did it to make herself known and to be the best she can be. Plus, after all of the turmoil she went through in her life, I say that her occasional wining and complaining isn't justification for the way so many people hate her. She was a 14 year old, female HERO of the show. Why don't people get that?

my favorite character is definitely asuka. I'm currently in the process of doing a cosplay wardrobe dedicated to her. anyone else here cosplays this series?


Yay! I'm not alone!!! I'm an Asuka freak. Though I don't think its cosplay as much as it is obsession, but I too have stuff dedicated to Asuka. Here are a few of my prime examples.
