It appears to be open, sure. But the gradual and inevitable extinction of the human race is basically a foregone conclusion seen through a hard sci-fi lens (which we have no reason to turn off at the end)

I was referring to your statement that EoE left the plot still open and disagreeing. But I think in retrospect we basically agree ^.^

Original Eva is a complete plot, fyi, even if you just look at the litera sci fi level. All the clues are there to understand the story's events and what's likely to come next. I'll quote my old explanation (which I've never once had to change) at you if you like.

Sounds right up my alley. 

I loved the show despite its storytelling hiccups because of how elegantly the philosophy behind it was presented. Like how, in the first five minutes, Shiina says that she would need a piece of paper the size of the world to fit all of her ambitions and dreams, and that turned out to be the theme of the whole damn show. This, when compared to something like Kara no Kyoukai, which I love to hate, is something of a breath of fresh air. In Kara no Kyoukai they have to have every character in the series wax poetic for minutes on end every time two or more of them gather in one place. In Shadow Star they took a more subtle route of presenting their ideas, and I appreciate that sort of storytelling a lot more. 

As an aside, Bokurano is on my short list for watching, and the manga will likely follow shortly after that.

How do you feel about the Shadow Star show when compared to the manga? I ask because I'm about to start the manga (one of these eons) after having seen the anime first.
