?!? S^2 Engines invested with Rei's mind? Care to elaborate that?
> isn't that mean that the battle between the Mass-produced EVAs in EOE and
Unit 02, >deep down is really a battle between Rei and Asuka? I mean,
Mass-produced Evas >represents some of Rei's nature (well, at least before
Rei 3): the willingness to >attack the 'enemy' whenever someone told them to
(unquestionable loyalty to task) and >the ability to recover after death
comes to them.
More than whenever told to, whenever they feel like. MP Evas actually act
like beasts, as Eva 01 does under dummy plug control. MP Evas have Kaworu
dummies, not Rei's.
> Or am I reading too much into it? I think it makes sense that Anno
decided to resolve the difference between the two girls in EOE by having
them confronting each other in an indirect violence towards one another.
Does it? One way of interpreting the message behind Eva is "stop being a
child, grow and decide your life for yourself". And would he do that by
having two girls have a giant scale catfight? Hardly believable to me.
Besides, it's not like Rei actually shows any dislike for Asuka, nor that
Asuka does actually hate Rei (other than out of her depression for failure,
which is to me a momentary state).
