* What exactly does Asuka see in Shinji?

**Granted, I prefer not to see genitalia of any kind in any anime, so while it makes no sense whatsoever, it is greatly appreciated.

*This one isn't quite as serious as the others, but towards the beginning of Death and Rebirth, there is a scene of Misato and Kaji having sex. We get an eyeful of Misato's crotch (on par with Asuka's breasts in End of Eva.) Thing is, Misato's crotch is completely featureless and nothing is penetrating it. How the heck are they having sex???

** SEELE refers to the *secret* Dead Sea Scrolls, a part of the Scrolls not known to the public. I think that the Classified Information in the PS2/PSP game suggests that the Scrolls are a sort of instruction manual that was found with Adam and the Spear.

** The answer is simple enough. The original episodes 25 and 26 were in fact the planned ending to the series. It's a common theme in Anno's work (compare with Gunbuster, for example,or the direction he was taking KareKano in before he was removed from the project). D&R and [=EoE=] were both created largely in reaction to fan response, in particular the large number of death threats Anno received over episodes 25 and 26 (some of which are shown on screen during [=EoE=]). Thus, while episodes 25' and 26' are not truly a "screw the fans" section, that is a part of it. In fact, all 4 episodes show the exact same ending, simply from different points of view. Episodes 25 and 26 show an internal (mental) view of Complementation itself, 25 from within Asuka, Misato, and Shinji's minds, 26 from within Shinji's only. Episodes 25' and 26' then show an external (physical) view of the events leading up to and beyond Complementation, with some additional mental clarification.

** Or, ''Gainax'' has no regard for physics. GurrenLagann was so powerful it caused a reaction rippling through time so that Gainax did the impossible and kicked reason to the curb.

** This troper always figured that the Angels needed to be removed from the equation to keep humanity's new home (whether it be the Black Moon or the GNR) safe. Imagine if SELEE's scenario played out (assuming the EVA Series was ready), all the souls of mankind started swirling around the Black Moon forever... and then Zeruel shows up and blows it up?

** Everyone keeps saying that all Eva characters are mad or at least mentally disturbed. But that's not true. Characters written by FyodorDostoevsky are really mad and their psychological issues are greatly and belivably described. If you compare Eva to Dostoevsky, Eva characters' problems look like awfully exaggerated teenage {{Wangst}}.
