Hmmmm...the only flaw there is that we all don't know if all the evas do
need a soul, or if that is a conditional, as well. It might not matter if
one has no soul, because it might just be a design improvement or
modification inherent to that EVA.

Uhhh...we don't know how long it takes to transfer a soul into the
system...for all we know, they could have done it while Touji was suiting

Generalization in logic fault. Such reactions depend on the person's
character. For all we know, Yui could have been the nasty and Naoko the
stable one...it all really comes down to intangibles that are related to
how the person interacted with the other people in real life. And how they
REALLY feel about those people at the "present" state.

That's interesting. Must have been one hell of a watermelon.
