There are a lot of plot holes in the original Evangelion/End of Evangelion. Try to name them all! (And look at past comments to avoid repeats.)

Why don't you name a plot hole first?

Okay, why does SEELE invade NERV?

What is Human Instrumentality?

Is Asuka dead?

If SEELE and NERV were supposedly on the same side, why did they wait until all the angels were dead to use the artificial angels?

Why didn't they clone Yui 3 times?

What the hell happened to Toji?

Wow, this doesn't have the potential for spoilers at all.

Title of thread, "Name the plot holes in Neon Genesis Evangelion "

I mean,... perhaps it's just me but I would assume a thread in which you're talking about the story on a level in which you examine possible plot holes... it might just contain spoilers. But that's a crazy notion! ~_~

But those aren't plot holes. A plot hole is a contradiction within the rules of the universe. Just because we have questions doesn't mean the story isn't internally consistent.

Everything you mentioned there isn't a plot hole, it's pretty clearly mentioned/explained or simply inferred.


As far as plot holes go the original Eva film and series have very few, there are things that are never fully explained or even mentioned. Eg the control interface for Eva 00. If you want plot holes just watch rebuild 3, it's... Not good

YouTube 'Evangelion in seven minutes' or something like that. Answers just about all those questions.

Someone has probably already debunked all of these, but whatever, I can't help myself. Also, Major spoilers below.





Hope that cleared a few things up.

Ok. Seele invades Nerv because Nerv has the soul and body of Lilith, and Gendo has Adam fused to his right hand. Nerv also has Unit 1 which is a clone of Lilith. While Gendo wants to use these to reunite with Yui, Seele wants to begin Instrumentality using the Evas. Human Instrumentality is when all humans become part of a whole and all individual flaws are gone. Seele wants this because they believe this is the next step in mankind's evolution. If by artificial angels you mean the Evas, they were still working to complete the Evas, plus they had to stop the angels from getting to Lilith which takes a lot of time and resources. Also, Seele and Nerv weren't necessarily on the same side. While their interests coincided, they had completely different motivations. They did clone Yui three times. In fact they actually cloned her more than 3 times because each Rei is a clone of Lilith that Gendo made to look like Yui. Toji leaves Tokyo 3. Also, Asuka dies fighting the artificial EVA series, but she is reborn at the end of the film.

OK, did Asuka's kiss imply that Shinji should sleep with her?

Because after my 3rd time watching it, I REALISED THATS WHAT SHE MEANT.

Then I Googled it, and it told me the same thing

THEN I BINGED IT, and it told me something else.

Oh it's so confusing.
