I think you need to better label the comparison screenshots.

EoEconcurrency 1.png This appears to be EoTV, EoE, and a storyboard shot

EoEconcurrency 5.png This obviously does not follow the same pattern.

EoEconcurrency 6.png Neither does this.

Not just these, but most of the images need to be labeled better. Someguy 00:55, 8 September 2011 (UTC)

Yeah I know but I'm not really that good with doing that. I put those pictures up so people who know how to make comparisons can tell which pictures I have in mind. Deepak 06:28 8 September 2011 EDT

You don't need to do any analysis, just say which part of each image is from which ending. You already have that information if you put together the images, right? Someguy 10:35, 8 September 2011 (UTC)

Before either argument you should summarize the development history of the endings. Specifically, 1-24 > abandoned 25 draft > EoTV > D&R + EoE. This is important because most of the similarities between the two versions (both dialog and random 'real world' stills) can be assumed to come from this common lost 25 draft, thus the majority of presented evidence for concurrency is something that actually isn't a problem at all for others... even in different endings the gist of EoE's first half can be assumed to have happened in a general sense: Selee attacks, Asuka is launched into the lake to defend HQ, Misato and Ritsuko die of gunshots, Gendo gets Rei to kick things off and instrumentality happens). Where they greatly differ however is the implication that though Shinji controls his own inner world, it is Gendo actually calling the shots within a very different sort of instrumentality as a whole (along with many other less important details, many of which are set up with the retcons from D&R [which became 21'-24']).NemZ (talk) 01:02, 1 December 2012 (PST)
