Spoiler Alert!I was always under the impression Rei was like a wart clone of Lilith and some of Yui. So you merge Rei with Lilith and you get the "real" Lilith and then... I forgot.
I went overboard with over-speculation before I just figured out that THE SCRIPT for the last 20 minutes was the entire point. The rest is backdrop.
The entire story isn't an epic about a young fearful boy piloting a mech and fighting meaningful aliens. It's a 30 year old man criticizing the current teen generation needlessly using an omnipresent veiwpoint and baiting them with a mech story. The final 20 minutes makes this abundantly clear. Yet, there is still something there that I like. I can't place my finger on it, but I keep coming back to it. I think it's Asuka, that bi-brat.
I will be seeing the Rebuild movies.
Ack, anyways I need something fun. I've stopped the Haruhi for now. I'm just not interested. Ghost in the Shell maybe. Excel Saga perhaps. Why not Kodomo no Jikan...
I got sick of ToraDora, I knew how it was going to end. It was too long!
