Everyone seems to hate Rebuild Rei and Rei Q compared to NGE.

What's the general thought on Shikinami vs Soryu?
I have seen people say She is Anno's favorite, and that's why she became a better character, well everyone shit on Rei.

I mean Shikinami is obviously a lot more shallow then Soryu, simply because of the movie format. But they really trivalized most of her issues, and just made her kind of a loner.
In 2.0 she had a crush on Shinji, and worked on trusting people sorta. Shinji and Shikinami probably could have hooked up pretty early and had a mostly normal stable relationship, something would have taken years of therapy for Shinji and Soryu.

Outside of that though, Shikinamis entire character is basically defined by Shinji at this point. Sure she does get some pretty badass fight scenes, but other then that, she feels like she is only there for Shinji to win her back. Even the few pieces of dialog Mari gets are about Shinji and Asuka.

They basically got rid of all of Soryu's flaws and made her into a super badass waifu.

Do Asukafags hate Shikinami as much as Reifags hate Q? Do you think they can both co-exist with out ruining the other?

>What's the general thought on Shikinami vs Soryu?
Soryu >>>>>>>>>>>> dog shit >>>>>>> Shikinami
There you go
Shikinami is only good for giving Asuka more fanart
>>
I've watched NGE, EoE, and the Rebuild movies multiple times, and I'm still not sure what the difference is
>>
2.0 Shikinami is a lot like second quarter Soryu anyway, except with more waifuing. I don't think it's degradation of the character considering 2.0 Shinji got legitimately buffed up on badass.

3.0 doesn't exist.
>>
Shikinami > Soryu
>>
I like both. I don't get what people think are so different.
>>
While I am aware I don't speak for every Asuka fan, I don't hate Shikinami. Soryu is undeniably the superior Asuka, but I don't have to hate Shikinami. They're both still Asuka.
After all, there are plenty of other things about Rebuild to hate.
>>
>>117489107
Shikinami revolves around Shinji, whether Shinji is not on screen or on screen, she will be saying
>baka Shinji
She is a flawless character and more waifu-like than Soryu, who was fucked up and often tolerable
>>
de-emphasizing asuka was probably a good call, she was possibly the most annoying aspect of the original series
>>
>>117488987
mari is worst but prettiest
>>
I like the new outfits and badass fight scenes. I'm good.

Asuka's gonna get screentime in 4.0 along with Shinji so Rebuild is working out well.
>>
>>117488987
>Everyone hate Rebuild Rei

Excuse me, what? Rebuild Rei is the best
>blocking Asuka's slap

Rei Q is hated so much because she's not Rebuild Rei.

The only character in Rebuild that's on par with the original is Kaji, because he died before Anno had a chance to shit all over him in 3.0.

>>117489453
Yeah that time he killed her off in 2.22 to replace her with Mari after a few minutes of lame screentime and Toji level relevance wasn't disappointing at all
>>
>>117489513
3.33 says hello. That was good, and she didn't die in 2.22 either. Not my fault you can't pay attention.

The master will deliver. Manga delivered (in the end), EoE delivered and Rebuild will also deliver.

I'm sitting pretty comfy right now.
>>
How could you possibly hate Shikinami? She's like Asuka with better drive and potential.

>that eyepatch
>that hat
>that fighting drive
>that everything
>>
>>117489513
Her getting crushed and almost dying was just more setup to make Shinji suffer.

Now she has pretty thick plot armor until she and Shinji make up.
Then she could totally bite it, if Anno wants to go dark and weird again.
>>
>>117488987
>she feels like she is only there for Shinji to win her back.


Never gonna happen. Good Luck Shikinami.

The film where she had less screentime than fucking 2.22 and was even more irrelevant?

Where she got replaced by a totally new character after being sidelined for most of it?

Where she got killed by gay angel jesus clones and choked by Shinji?

>Rebuild will also deliver.
Pls

>>117489771
Even if Anno goes dark, Asuka will be there in the end, and there will be a lot of Asuka and Shinji in 4.0. It's gonna be good.

Of course she didn't die, but after being a lame socially awkward girl with a crush on a boy she knew for a week they just threw her out the film for muh Mari. And she was barely in 3.0.
Just watch 4.0 be a Mari film now that they are expanding on her. Asuka has 0 connection to the plot.

Flaws don't make a character good. They can just as easily make them worse.

Shikinami has flaws too, but she can get around them somewhat and 4.0 will elaborate on the flaws she has in 3.0.
>>
>>117489981
Yeah he's doing a pretty shit job at giving any kind of relevance or good characterization at all so I wouldn't hold my breath. All she'll be used for is the odd ugly CG fight scene and then die.
She and Shinji don't have a relationship to expand upon and she has no connection to the plot.

Not really, Shikinami was voted most popular in several polls. She was always very well liked but some did complain, even I.
They had changed the character and maybe killed it, so I was just worried. Nothing wrong with that.

Now with 3.0 it's clear that it was all good.

>>
>>117490028
In Asuka's case, her flaws as well as character complexes are what gave people the ability to dig deeper into her character and think about what makes her tick.

Shikinami is a generic tsun waifu. Her biggest flaw is being too moe.
>>
>>117490040
>>117490045
You guys are taking quality over what is in fact there, of course new Asuka is worse in quality than old Asuka, but the point is, new Asuka is made to be popular above all things. She went trough Bardiel and instead of being crippled she got angel suporpower and eternal youth, a new character was added to rival her and in 3.0 she is nothing but Asuka's yuribait sniper who is there to remind the audience that Asushin is still a thing (Fucking hell, she even yells that after Kaworu dies, blaming Shinji for "not saving the princess)

What I want from Asuka is fundamentally different from what many other fags want of their favorite character. I don't want her to be happy, I want her to be depressed. I want her to break apart. I want to see her crack. When she's happy and confident, that's just a mask. Her true self doesn't show until that all comes off, and down in the darkest depths, that is where she truly shines.

So Shikinami may have some pretty outfits, and that's cool, but she's not what I want from Asuka. I can only enjoy Shikinami on that surface level as that's really all she's got going for her.
>>
>>117489981
Why would I be worried about getting an Asuka movie? I'd rather get that than a Rei movie.

Asuka has been pretty important so far actually. Bringing down Shinji and handling key components for the Wunder. She's used to symbolically say lots of important things, and is the last one standing.
>>
>>117490028
Shikinami is a fucking Mary Sue, Shinji is constantly punished by the plot whenever he don't do what she wants

>>117490162
By this point of time in NGE she was trying to comit suicide and left aside by most of Nerv. In Rebuild she is the ace pilot of the wunder (Mari is under her orders in case you didn't notice) and is constantly brought upon a favorable light

>>117490231
Of course you don't want that shit, you are a sane person, but don't pretend that the shit is there to make Asuka less popular and less important.

She won't even win again because Shinji gayed it up with Kaworu again and he already won. She's can't be a love interest, she can't be plot relevant, she can't even get depth. The only thing to look forward to is some fights but they will be CGshit.

Shikinami is what Soryu would be if she were inserted into a generic harem show instead of NGE. She has no depth, her backstory is cut down to a 2 second scene where she talks to a handpuppet. Her obsession with becoming mature and earning respect is gone, replaced with a generic tsundere personality. Instead of being her own character, her whole attitude is based off of Shinji. If someone were to think that shikinami is superior in any way, they're a casual when it comes to anime.

Asuka is her own character in Rebuild though. She's got a long history at WILLE, and has already grown up in a sense. It's fucking awesome, and this is clearly going to get elaborated on in manga and spinoffs.
>>
>>117490398
Well she might not win in the end, her and Shinji's relationship is one of the few plot points that exist anymore.

The entire 3.33 laid the ground work for it, basically everything Asuka and Mari said was about Shini and Asuka.
The movie even went as far as to completely sink Shinji Rei.

She will be a key component to helping Shinji get over his shit. Whether it be platonic or romantic.

There's a reason she isn't the character they used to handle Shinji's depression in 3.33, she only makes it worse. Considering she gave up on Shinji back in 2.22, romance is impossible. She like 28.

They're both Asuka to me. I say this as a long-time Asukafag who's ashamed that some Asukafags just can't deal with changes in character.

Asuka changes, just like a real person. If you don't like Rebuild Asuka, just hand in your Asukafag card. There's nothing wrong with it, and the eva's (except the cat EVA), the fights, and her new role is absolutely amazingly interesting for people who are fans.

Shikinami is a worthy extension of the canon. Rebuild might not be quite there yet.

She let Rei win, but her feelings didn't go away.

She is still very much hung up on Shinji all through out 3.33.

Did you pay attention? The whole point of EoE is that Shinji learns that he wants to interact with other human beings, even if it hurts him. When he decides to embrace reality, he appears back on Earth. Asuka also denied it, so she's there as well. It has nothing to do with him loving her. It certainly has nothing to do with any romantic feelings.
All of you shipperfags are so fucking stupid.

That's why Asuka is there in the end.
Your gay fantasy was only that, a gay fantasy.

Have you watched the whole show? The point of their relationship is that he wants to be loved by her but doesn't bother returning her feelings. He wants someone to give him unconditional love, who can listen to him and give a shit about his problems. Do you really see Asuka doing that? She has her own shit to deal with. She's torn between Kaji and Shinji and hates herself too much to love anyone properly. Shinji could return her feelings in a few years or so if only they hadn't made a point of showing the two of them can never understand each other even after the instrumentality tricks.

Kaworufags, time to buzz off. It's over. The manga, EoE, and soon to be, Rebuild, it's Asuka.

I watched more than one episode, episode 24.

The point is that Shinji and Asuka are symbolically the ones meant to end up together. That's why it happens every time. Not evne sure why you even TRY to deny this.
In Shinji's ideal world, Kaworu doesn't exist, in NGE.

Also, it's implied that asuka wasn't even at the beach when shinji got there. Since it seems he had the time to build a makeshift grave for Misato before noticing Asuka there.
In the end, Shinji didn't have any romantic relationship with any of the characters. That wasn't the focus of the series nor EoE.

Except a canon confession and Kaworu is shown to be the one who opens his AT Field, and then is immortalized in his heart. Shinji chokes Asuka selfishlessly, sees her as a side dish (which Asuka herself points out) and she brings him down verbally.
Sadamoto says that the only one Shinji had romantic feelings for was Kaworu, and Shinji even admits to loving him himself.

Kaworufags will never give up on their gay delusions. Kaworu and Shinji was just Shinji being manipulated at a vulnerable stage. Their relationship never meant anything.

>Asuka says directly after that scene he's lying,
The catch here is that Asuka would deny that anyone loves her because of her insecurities.

Now don't get me wrong, I am not advocating any ship. But that whole interaction was them being at their low point and trying to hurt each-other. It's the climax of their selfhatred
>>
>>117491818
Yeah, Kaworu wins because you hold on to some "dear idea" that he loved him, and you can only do that with ONE person in your life.

>>
>>117491799

No, it just illustrates a point. Shinji "loved" Kaworu, but to truly become happy he needs to let go of him. It isn't rocket surgery.

>The point is that Shinji and Asuka are symbolically the ones meant to end up together.

But they are each other's hedgehogs. I don't know how you can fail to see this. It's spelled for you in the series. They don't understand each other. He had more chances with Rei but only saw her platonically (and she's his mother), but unless you change Asuka's character completely,she can never be with him in a romantic light.

Asuka and Shinji always end up together, and that constitutes winning. He has to let his childish fantasies (Kaworu) die by killing them, and accept Asuka.

That's the story. If you don't like it, you hate Evangelion and it's message.

>>>/cm/
>>
>>117491938
Yeah, but he can sure be with Kaworu instead right? Without changing Kaworu's character, or you know, reanimating him from the dead? Kaworu is narratively supposed to die, and Kaworu's character wants to die, so you'd have to change that too.

He can only ever be with Asuka. Grow the fuck up.
>>
>>117491698
Well of course, it's bad writing, and constant plot rushing, we never really get to see the characters.

It's silly as fuck that she still has such strong feelings for him after all this time, they didn't build it up at all.

But it is there, basically the only point to her character this time around is wanting to be with Shinji.

Whether she wins or not is up in the air, but it will be a plot point, there was too much build up in 3.33 to just ignore it. Then again after what 3.33 ended up being after 2.22, 3+1 could be about Shinji, Pen Pen, and Kaji starting a boy band.
>>
>>117491901
Sure. He can love Kaworu but also needs to learn to love himself first before accepting others. But it's never been implied Kaworu was a fantasy. It was real. It was so real for him Kaworu is litterally the words 'I love you' to him. He had to kill him because he was an angel, that's all.
>>
>>117491938
>But they are each other's hedgehogs

But that's the whole fucking point. Hedgehogs need to fuck other hedgehogs to make baby hedgehogs. You can go out and fuck the hedgehog clone of your dead mother or a dead alien hedgehog. That's why their relationship is the real one.
>>
>>117491799
>Implying this doesn't negate Shinji's feelings for Kaworu

Shinji's feelings for Kaworu are nothing. Shinji is just desperate and in need of love after losing anyway, him getting that for free highlights how weak Shinji's character actually is.
Their relationship is entirely vapid and meaningless, it's absolutely nothing as far as substance goes and there is nothing between them of value, and that's the point of it.

That's also why Shinji has to kill Kaworu, and re-align with Asuka.
That's the story of NGE, it's the story of the manga, it's the story of the spinoffs and in the next Rebuild movie as well, beyond all likelihood.
>>
>>117492018

Kaworu is dead, loving somebody after they died is escapism. If Kaworu survived they might went on to become the first intergalactic homosexual couple, but he died and Shinji needs to move on

Fucking unbelievable, no wonder why Anno is so pissed off.
Eva is about people's unwillingness to understand each other, shippingfaggotry is completely irrelevant.
Did Shinji love Kaworu? Yes, because Kaworu provided him with unconditional love. He needed to know what it felt like to be truly loved with no strings attached before he could have his 'epiphany' in the finale. That's it, that's his role. Shinji doesn't love anyone else because he can't love anyone else, he must first learn to love himself which he starts to do/realize at the end.
It's been over a decade and I still need to explain this to stupid as fuck Asukafags. How Disgusting.
>>

That's not the fucking point you dingaling. The point is that their spikes push each other away. Anno made a point in EoE to show how they can't possibly have a working relationship with each other, no matter what they do. This is especially reinforced in the last scene with the whole 'How disgusting' line.

That's not winning, that means Kaworu lost since he dies and is out. He's a thing of the past, and Shinji had to forget him (like he did in EoE, the manga and NGE) to move on.

It boggles my mind that even after all these years, people STILL don't understand Kaworu.

Kaworu represents essentially everything wrong with Shinji's mentality. Shinji wants human interaction and love without being hurt, and that is what Kaworu offers. But that isn't what Shinji needs to do. The entire series is about Shinji accepting reality. And in reality, you're not always gonna get that. That is why in both TV and Rebuild, Kaworu dies. As long as Kaworu is alive, Shinji can not grow as a person.

Reminder that Asuka is leading the way into the next movie.

Reminder that Kaworu is dead.

Another friendly reminder that you have from the EVA staff official word that Kaworu and Shinji are nothing more than friends.

He's part of why Shinji grows as a person. See the scene in EoE of him with Rei.
Anno himself Saud that Shinji killing Kaworu was a wrong thing. NEG2, which Anno helped write, has a path where Kaworu doesn't die, they have a happy relationship and Shinji is more of a positive and assertive person.

>>117492413
I'm talking about NGE here. To me Kaworu and Shinji are friends in rebuild. It doesn't mean you can't be in love with you friend, but still. Friendship is one of the main themes in Rebuild. Sexual elements have been removed as well.
The point he made is that Kaworu is a suicidal angel and Shinji had to ignore his own wish to save him and save humanity instead. It had never been implied his influence on Shinji was bad at all.

*regresses

Unhealthy delusions about free love can only lead to one thing, misery. Kaworu betrays Shinji and his feelings, and makes him kill him. Kaworu ruined Shinji as a person.

Arguably also in Rebuild.

Unfortunately fujoshi misinterpret this as some "love story" because they get wet thinking about twice the amount of dicks as normal in the same bed.

That Ogata snippet has no credible source or validity considering Ogata is always posting Kawoshin shipping faggot all over her twitter. Plus if you want to look towards seiyuu on Kawoshin, what about Asuka's seiyuu, Misato's seiyuu and Rei's seiyuu ALL saying Kaworu is the best person for Shinji and vocally shipping Kawoshin? (For Rei and Misato's, see Evangelion Symphony concert, for Asuka's see her panel at one of the cons in America where she says she wants Kaworu and Shinji married at the end of Rebuild).
And don't even get me started on Khara themselves, where Kaworu is labeled Shinji's same-sex love interest and only love interest in his bio. Neither Asuka nor Rei are described in such a way. See pick related.
And you think Anno doesn't ship Kawoshin? His wife made a Kawoshin doujinshi, you think he won't give her what she wants in 4.0? You are the delusional one.
>>
>>117492631
>It had never been implied his influence on Shinji was bad at all.
It's only directly stated in the anime.

Kaworu comes along, gives Shinji mad delusions that don't make sense, manipulates Shinji and then finally, betrays Shinji and everyone else by becoming his enemy.

He then is cruelly forcing Shinji to kill him. Otherwise he's threatening to end them all.

Kaworu's influence was 100% negative.

This is the canon.
>>
I don't know why karlfags and Asukafags are fighting.
They are both very important people to Shinji.

In NGE him and Asuka were both very attracted to each other but couldn't figure out how to make it work because of their insecurities, but they still had real feelings for each other.

In the manga, they were good friends, and ended up happy with each other.

In the Rebuild, both Shinji, and Asuka are way less retarded, and Asuka REALLY loves Shinji, and Shinji cares deeply for her as a friend, maybe more. This is the first time they might actually have it work.

Karl is always a person who loves Shinji, and Shinji loves him back, but their relationship is always doomed. It's also a little unhealthy, but it does help Shinji in the end.

You are either trolling or being an idiot on purpose. Soryu was fucked up in the head by her traumatic past and how she decided to confront that, Shikinami is pretty much hollow and a loner with nothing of the deep issues Soryu had.

As result Shikinami feels far more hollow and superficial than Soryu and also makes her a more boring character.

So posting stupid shit on twitter is somehow more valid than a direct statement?

Kaworufags, you are so lost here. The other seiyuus don't matter, they just spout their own fantasies at best, while Ogata here answers a question directly.

You're just being a gullible fujoshit as the rest of the kaworufags and falling for the marketing material Khara sells you. You losers even take calendars as shipping evidence.

Asuka is the one and only, and has always been. Kaworu was always just a side-note, while Asuka the real character and love-interest.

Even if we don't take mommy issues as an example, Shikinami is:
Not smug and prideful
Not fun
Doesn't care about being the best pilot
Grumpy autist that avoids crowds as opposed to talkative and naughty attitude of original Asuka
Motivation basically consists of her feelings for Shinji that come out out of nowhere, and fighting because plot requires it, when Sohryu's character was about herself and her ego foremost
Does basically nothing but swearing and fighting in 3.33
Needs Misato to tell her when to go dere as opposed to Sohryu who developed sympathy for Shinji when going through hardships together (magma diver)

Shikinami is dull.

He made Shinji open up, something that no evangelion character ever did. And it was in a good way. You need to understand than in order to love Asuka in the future (if he ever does, and he takes his sweet time) he needs to know love exists. He needs to experience it to know it's out there somewhere and he wants to feel that again, and not necessarily with Kaworu. The problem is that he only wanted to do this with Kaworu, because he never knew Rei and Asuka were capable of loving him in the first place.
>>
>>117492804
There's no source for Ogata's words, they don't make sense considering what she's always posting on her twitter.
Asuka's seiyuu says ASUKA DOESN'T LOVE SHINJI, and that Kaworu is the best for Shinji. Why you're ignoring this seiyuu but praising another seiyuu's 'words' shows your cherrypicking delusions.

Forgetting how he betrayed him and took away that love the same day.

It made Shinji almost catatonic. Pretty evil too.

That's negative.

>>117493036
How? She doesn't even like piloting in Rebuilds and does it couple of time just because. What's left is generic tsundere antics and boring kind of bitching.
You could say Mari fits that quota now, but Mari is shit and feels like some "cool at everything and constantly smug" character that walked out of a fanfic. Writing in Rebuilds is mediocre overall, you can (not) do anything about it.

I can't believe how salty Kaworufags are for losing. Holy shit.

YOU DO NOT "WIN" IF YOU'RE DEAD.
Asuka wins the evan jellies by being with Shinji. By there being a relationship, and even romance.
Happens in NGE+EOE, Angelic Days, the manga and soon the Rebuilds.

But sure, you want to claim that "Kaworu wins" because Kaworu at one point manipulated Shinji, and because Shinji thought of him once.

Hah.
>>
>>117493150
You don't know that. You're just assuming to protect your ship when your ship had at least 10 episodes that showed how the two of them never bothered to understand each other and love each other properly.
Get it through your head, holy shit. Shinji doesn't love her because she never gives him the opportunity to. I find it hilarious that you'd lecture Kaworufags on healthy relationships and real romantic relationships when LAS is portrayed as a very poisonous one as in they hurt each other, don't respect each other (the masturbation scene is not an act of love and if you think it is then you need to study REAL (your favorite word) relationships, maybe get out more), look pained when they're forced t work together,etc etc. Stop saying it's not real because it happened and it happens in every universe. Shinji always fall in love with Kaworu. Kaworu dies but he's an angel, it doesn't matter if he dies because just like Rei he can come back (IF he even wants to).
>>
>>117492991
I liked that on the series, the relationship between Shikinami and Shinji on rebuild feels so forced, while on the original series you could actually understand their interactions and why the have a cycle of hate-care (for not say love, since it is too strong as a word) for each other.

He didn't betray him, Shinji thought he did. Kaworu instead decides to give up his life in turn for Shinji's, and Shinji's attitude changes because the angels aren't just inherently evil like he was led to believe.

That's not the point, the point is just because a character dies, doesn't mean they didn't win. Kaworu died, but he's still the only character who wins Shini's romantic affection ever.

That's what it means. If you die, you lose. Asuka wins, and they're the actual couple throughout Evangelion.

Kaworu is supposed to be a distraction, and he serves that purpose well, but the ending always reunites Asuka and Shinji. Call it fate if you will, but that's Evangelion.

You guys are kinda crazy. Just trying to spite each other.

Shinji and Kaworu is not a long lasting relationship, it's simply a part of Shinji's growth.
Asuka and Shinji is all over the place and kinda complicated. It could potentially happen after EoE, but it would require a lot of work from both of them.

In the rebuild though both relationships are much more shallow. Kaworu just seemed to exists to give Shinji hope and then have it taken away.

Asuka Shinji is also way less complicated, as Asuka is weirdly devoted and into him for plot reasons, she doesn't even seem to care he destroyed the world. Their relationship is basically all on what Shinji does in 3+1. It could happen, it might not. We just have to wait.

Unlike Shinji Rei which has no chance of ever happening.

It's dollfags and kaworufags who think their dead husbando is at all relevant except baiting fujoshi.
The canon is that he dies. As long as they don't accept that Shinji has to move on from Kaworu, they don't get Evangelion.

That's the thing about their relationship. It's not some kind of childish opaque fantasy like kwaorufags are.
Real relationships have ups and downs. This is the actual relationship NGE pushes every time, and that's why Asuka wins.

Sorry Kaworufag. You can complain as much as you want that they're not perfect or that they have issues, that's the point Evangelion is selling.

You may now move onto another flavor of the month gay fantasy anime.

It's funny how vehemently Asukafags reject reality. Asuka was never competing for Shinji in the manga. You are absolutely deluded to even insinuate she won when they met briefly and then went separate ways. If you want to say she won by being present, you can't ignore Kensuke. And even then it's wrong because the only one who Shinji felt romantically attracted to was Kaworu, again.

He is not the one that needs to accept her.
He is the one that has to win her back, either as a friend or a romantic option.

That's the whole point of basically any of their scenes in 3.33, he keeps disappointing her at every turn, and why Mari screams at him to man up and save the princess.

Soryu does not win the manga, they were friends, good friends, but that's all.

Soryu didn't win the anime, but there was potential for them to get together down the road.

Shikinami however, has an actual shot at winning Rebuild.
All of the problems Soryu had are gone, she doesn't give a shit about Kaji, she doesn't have nearly as bad emotional issues. She is tsundere as fuck for Shinji, and even Mari is shipping the two when ever possible. The are already great friends with no issues, he went beserk in his eva when he thought she was dead, and was overjoyed with happiness when he saw her again on the Wunder. If Rei and Asuka were reversed during the tenth angel attack, he probably would have done the exact same shit, if he saw Rei die a day before, and then Asuka was about to die.

I'm not saying she is going to win, or that Karl is less important, but 3.33 had little plot other then Shinji Karl hanging out, and Shinji Asuka shipping. Who knows, maybe they are just setting it up, just for Shinji to fuck it all up, but it is there, unlike the manga and NGE.

To say Shinji doesn't care about rebuild Asuka is ridiculous. When she died he flipped out and tried to kill Gendo, and then quit Nerv, and when he found out she survived, ran up to see her with a huge smile on his face.

Whether or not he wants to fuck her is one thing, but she was a very important person to him.

Not when she is now Misato tier. Mari's one teasing moment doesn't show she is into him that way and Shinji was never interested in Asuka like that, and after 3.0 that kind of relationship has no hope. They'll never be a couple, especially as Khara is pushing Mari/Asuka.

Kaworufags ITT endear and endear the point of Evangelion to be that "Shinji loves Kaworu", or "winning" on that basis when that only comes to happen to end it.

She is not Misato tier, she randomly and magically stayed the same age as Shinji because "plot".

Mari teased Asuka about her and Shinji, and then later screams at Shinji to man up and protect Asuka.

Her entire nature is completely tsundere for him, she doesn't even care about the shit he did, she only cares that he left her and didn't protect her.

Her entire character was changed from previous incarnations to make her more suitable for Shinji. Her entire character in the rebuild is to be shipped with Shinji. It doesn't mean she will win, but that's all she exists for now.

To be fair, most LAS shippers are Asukafags self-inserting through Shinji. Yurifags in Japan are mainly female so making AsuMari fanart is a way to maintain Asuka away from their beloved Kawoshin. Most fanworks are made by women, men are lazy except for porn
>>

>Notice how they're constantly talking about Evangelion through only that lens, while Asuka deals with it's themes of escapism and reality directly and includes the characters as part of that.
Except we're also addressing those, retard. They both come back, and there is reason for it. But to only see it as a "ship end" just cheapens it. EoE is about them resolving their respective character arcs, not about whether they get together romantically. That part should be kept to fanfiction. If they truly cared about the themes of reality, they'd acknowledge things like Kaworu and Rei talking to Shinji about reality and portrayed a reasons he finds the will to live again as well. In fact they'll ignore anything as long as it helps their ship.

There is nothing mature about Asuka, she has the mind and body of a 14 year old, she is the least mature character in the show, she can't control herself, and is still screaming and calling Shinji an idiot every time she sees him.

The age difference doesn't mean anything, she never moved on from Shinji, and never created a life for herself, she has just been bitterly fighting a war for the last 14 years. Maybe less depending on how long she was in a coma.

I have to think Sadamoto was just following orders on that one. Anno might have left the dialog and finer details to him but it sounds like it was planned since at least 3.0. I'm also kinda expecting a happy end for Asuka since Yuko wants one and Rebuild will probably be the last time she reprises the role in a major installment.

Not like Asuka, she comes off as fucking crazy anytime Shinji is near her.

The way the world is, she couldn't have possible have made a life for herself, and if she did, she wouldn't be acting the way she does around Shinji, she would have been able to at least some what move on.

I'm not a shipper, I'm just trying to be partial on this. It's too early to write off Asuka and Shinji.
To be honest, the only reason I'm even bothering, is because 3.33 was so hollow and plotless, the only two take aways were Shinji Karl shipping, and Shinji Askua Shipping.

And that Misato is kind of a bitch now.

It's not delusion that Kaworu is dead, and Asuka is alive.

This being the core part of EVA's theme. Kaworu is a negative part of Shinji's development.
If he's going to love anyone, it's Asuka.
>>
It's weird that all the Reifags are just gone completely.

I wonder if they are just hiding in the background stirring the pot with Asuka vs Karl, out of spite or something.

No other reason for those two groups to fight, since they can coexist.

But Shikinami had no love or need of 02 like Soryu did. So her leaving it behind doesn't really show anything.

Tried to argue the POV that it's not about winning. But neither Kaworufags or Asukafags are interested in that POV.

She got pretty upset in 2.0 when they were taking it away from her, and wanted to keep the red color and all. She's still prideful over it.

She did love that unit, and "sorry nigoki" in 3.0 just proves it.

It's like that for several characters in Rebuild now though, specifically Kaworu, Rei and Asuka.

All of their character development revolves around Shinji now.

Maybe I would feel like that scene meant something if they didn't have Asuka drop 02 for 03 in the previous movie just to avoid an awkward situation. Or if they showed her reliance on 02 or being an Eva poilot. But I've seen more emotional scenes when someone loses a volleyball.

It was a test, and she could get the old one back, and she wanted to paint the new one red.

They're pretty harsh on her, saying that eva's can be replaced - like the pilot.

It's a stupid argument anyway since the answer is obviously Kaji. The ancient Greeks would agree with me and that should be good enough for everyone.

>>117497564
Ogata agrees with you based on that Asukafag's Reddit link.
>>
>>117497520
When she leaves 02 behind she might as well have told it nothing personal. There was no real bond shown between Shikinami and her unit, and if there was it was never shown.
>>
>>117497531
Don't forget Shinji and Asuka having an entire actual relationship to build on. Shinji wanting to kiss Asuka, Asuka wanting to kiss Shinji, and the two being generally portrayed as flirting.

In the final episode, Shinji's dream world includes not Kaworu, but Asuka instead.

You could just as well ask "Why does Kaworu win?" , and the answer would be that Asuka goes catatonic and everyone Shinji knew dies goes away.

Kaworu can only make an impression on Shinji when he's desperate for love, Asuka didn't need that.
That's why Asuka is also there in the end for Shinji, giving him the hand despite him choking her in ONE MORE FINAL. Their relationship is real, it's tangible, it's not based on desperation or severe trauma.
The point is that they have to work out their differences. That's why Asuka wins, because she is there in the end to be that person Shinji is with.

Kaworu is in the past. Asuka is the future.

That's in 3.0, there's also the scenes in 2.0 where they freeze EVA02. Then there's the introduction where she brags about her EVA02.

It's not hard to miss.

As a Kaworufag, I think there's a high chance that Asuka could 'win' in the final movie or whatever.

Then again it depends on her relationship with Mari (which I assume they'll expand upon) and if Kaworu will really return in the next movie, like Akira Ishida has suggested.

There is also the possibility that Shikinami is subconsciously attracted to Shinji's parental qualities, as there has been a huge amount of focus on him using some mother-like qualities to make others happy. Cooking, protective habits and a good deal of his behaviour towards Rei could be interpreted as parental. This has potential, since none of Asuka's issues about her mother have been brought up in Rebuild at all, yet all of her character focus has revolved around Shinji, asking him to save her at the beginning of 3.0, Mari's encouragement to save the princess and so on.

tldr; It's difficult to judge since we haven't really seen much interaction between the two. Shinji's relationship with Rei is very much painted in a platonic, parental light. His relationship with Kaworu was clearly painted as something sexual and romantic with all of the piano symbolism going on. But his relationship with Asuka? There isn't much to work with to determine what it is.
>>
>>117498196
Finally a Kaworufag enters that isn't part of the usual delusional clique of kaworufag /a/ trolls.
>>
>>117498106
Is it really incest though? I mean it's definitely biologically incest but is that really what makes it taboo?
>>
>>117498221
If only Asukafags were not all delusional.
>>
>>117498196
Shinji and Asuka's relationship will be parental, as she's much older now and Shinji is still a child mentally and physically. Mari is more of Asuka's equal.
>>
>>117498106
Incest isn't that weird in anime and it wouldn't be strange in Eva of all things. The rebuilds clearly aren't going in that direction though, and they fucked up Rei's character anyway so there's not much to care about in that regard.
>>
>>117498019
Well, there is Mari now :^)
>>
>>117498501
Yes, there's a high chance that it could now be parental - coming from Shinji's point of view. But from Asuka's point of view, it's all over the place. We knew she was clearly attracted to him in 2.0, seeing him as a potential romantic partner she was trying to woo over. But now we have her dragging him around the landscape, calling him 'brat' and pulling him by his ears - establishing herself as the parent in a relationship that mimics Misato's and Shinji from EoE. Then Mari and her own pleas for Shinji to save her from danger - which paints Shinji as the parent - and of course Mari's teasing towards Asuka for missing him all of those years he was absent, which still has those romantic implications. It's all over the place, and it's making her very hard to read.
>>
>>117498869
She only started calling him a brat when he fled Wille with Rei.

Before that it was still just stupid Shinji.
And even when they first see each other in liliths chamber, she calls him stupid Shinji at first, and when she realized he ignored everyones pleas for him to stay out of Evas, she calls him a brat again.

So I don't think that part is parental, more like she is extremely frustrated with his continued actions.
>>
>>117498277
>>117498586
Even ignoring the Incest, it's still a weird unhealthy relationship, and it kinda makes him too much like Gendo 2.0,
