The terms are used in contracts in Japan to refer to individual participants in the way that "hereafter Party A" and "hereafter Party B" would be used in English.Rewatching Evangelion continues to turn up new stuff. Noticing the terms kou and otsu on the monitor showing both halves of the 7th Angel, a quick Web search brought me to this interesting page:
Wow, that's amazing. Look at the size of it!So they've made a life size EVA statue and you can sit in the entry plug!
That's a crazy level of variation. Theres so much going on in that show that I cant say I ever really picked up on it. And they were right to care more about the quality of the show over some metric that doesnt really matter. The Eva's are big.The Evas heights in the original series apparently fluctuate between 40 and 200 metres(!) and their weight between 700 and 96,000 tons!
I didn't either, to be perfectly honest. And it happens in Rebuild as well, actually, despite the fixed height. 3.0 in particular has some apparent size inconsistencies — and design inconsistencies between scenes generally — and these are again caused through dramatic effect.Theres so much going on in that show that I cant say I ever really picked up on it.
And that's the bottom line. For all the hoo-ha and intellectual posturing within Eva fandom, I think, for me, if you understand that one fact, then you understand Eva. I reckon Hideaki Anno himself would be quite happy for anyone to enjoy his creation purely as an action show with big robots. The snobbery comes from the fans.The Eva's are big.
Totally agree with that.Just watch the show and enjoy it-don't try to rationalize every little thing.
Funnily enough, when I was weighing up whether to go and see one of the Evangelion Rebuild movies at my local cinema back in 2011, I remember thinking to myself "Hmm, giant robots... Is that really gonna be my thing?"Just for the record I'm not into giant mecha shows.

It seems silly now because some of my favourite anime include Gurren Lagann, Code Geass, SSSS.Gridman and DARLING in the FRANXX. The only Gundam I've seen so far is the first Thunderbolt film, December Sky. I enjoyed Gunbuster when I saw it for the first time last year, and I'd love to see Diebuster sometime, but then I'm a FLCL fan, so of course I'd want to see Diebuster.
