In 3.0 Aoba is now fighting NERV alongside his colleagues under the command of Misato Katsuragi aboard the AAA Wunder, he manifests a grudge against Shinji the first time he sees him after the fourteen years time skip following the Near Third Impact.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- His surname comes from the name of the Aoba class heavy cruiser of the Japanese Imperial Navy.
- Aoba's personal name, "Shigeru", makes his full name the same sound similar to Aoba Shigereru, a movie directed by Kihachi Okamoto, which was intentional.
