>>117319268 No, she is 16 in this manga chapter and probably got the "curse of eva" after that. It does not confirm timelines, Mari could have simply led a normal life in the NGE continuity meanwhile in the Rebuild one she got into some deep SEELE stuff
>>117319368 that's just, really weird, mari is just way to far from the type of character to what she is in the movies, it's not even that fake genki character you can put on and off, she genuinely went from a quiet bland character to the exact opposite AFTER shit goes down, I dunno but it makes her character unbelievable, I don't like to think that people like this don't exist but I honestly doesn't feel like this is a thing that can happen
>>117319567 Well, there was the second impact and Yui's death, there is also whatever made her ageless. Furthermore, I do think in Rebuild she is a more serious person than she looks, I don't think the genki is fake but in 2.0 there are multiple scenes were she looks so oddly serious, when she stands up after she lands on Shinji (You need the animation cell to see it properly since she has that shiny glasses effect over her) when she looks to the birds, when she loses the battle against Zeruel and finally when she is meeting the Rei clones.
>>117320053 Hahaha, no. Mari is told outright she stands no chance against fucking Gendo, she does confess anyway but Yui just brushes her hair and in the end Mari says that even when she moves to England she will pray for her and gendo's happiness.
Even worse is the fact that Yui made Mari's hair into twintails to tease her, yet the girl kept them forever, makes Mari look like a cute version of Fuyutsuki (The difference being the fact that Mari had the courage to confess)
>>117319909 This guy knows whats up. We've basically been shown the start and the finish of what made Mari who she is but we're still missing the middle of the story presumably because it's plot relevant.
>>117319909 Oh yeah, this fucking scene from your pic, it always confused me why Mari looked so bad on those last seconds. She never makes a similar face in any battle and later she is relative genki when the impact starts.
First, I do think Mari being older was planned, on the CRC Anno says specifically that he made her sing that old song and do a series of "old man's" stuff to give her a "Showa-era old man" feel. That along with all that maturity talk and her age never being revealed makes me think this was a planned move.
Now, about the face in particular, it happens right after Rei saves Mari from dying in the explosion (Mari herself mentions that) and after Zeruel "consumes" Rei. I think this links with her backstory.
>>117321344 >>117321098 The middle of her story is too much of blackhole to think about it, there are many unconventional possibilities that could have happened, for example, she could have went the Shinji way and was simply knocked out for a few years.
>>117321468 We were given a first light into it. She studied on Fuyutsuki's class with Gendo, Yui, and even Kyoko, she had a crush on Yui and she saw Gendo as a rival but knew she stood no fucking chance. Everything that happens between that and her battle in unit 05 however is a total mistery
>>117321283 >I think this links with her backstory. Even if there's no specific event, seeing a Yui clone suicide in an attempt to save them probably rattled her a little. We know Mari isn't quite as unshakable as she lets on.
Sadamoto changed Shinji colors in the Vol 14 cover because of a Shinji fanart a person sent him that was colored the same as the final cover. The poster has the colors that were originally meant to be.
>>117319567 She might have gotten to the point where she had seen so much shit she became used to it and just brushed stuff off while remaining genki in a sort of PTSD way. That's the way a lot of people in real life come to deal with things
>>117322883 I have a feeling it's been planned since the beginning. Really even with the little bit of information we got from the manga things are already starting to fit together in a way you can't just shoehorn in.
