We EVA now.
Ate they comparing TV, EoE and Rebuild?
Could this be a trailer for 3.0+1.0 even?
I just feel bad for Hiramatsu. First time he would get to be the actual "director" of something, and he gets forced to do this garbage.
Especially sad since he's 10 times a better storyboarder than Anno's other hack friends.
I don't know about directing a whole show, but he's a kickass episode director, animation director, and he draws the cutest girls.
This feels like something that could fit in at the beginning of 3.0 + 1.0.
This Japanese Eva fansite has a recent theory that they changed 4.0 to 3.0 + 1.0 because it's going to include a section of 3.0 that was removed from the movie. It would have been a continuation of the final shot with Asuka, Shinji, and Rei walking towards the remnants of the town.
It's kind of strange that this is one of the shorts, I hope the animator actually wanted to do this, and didn't feel pressured in to doing it by Anno or something though.
>because it's going to include a section of 3.0 that was removed from the movie
More specifically, 3.0 was only storyboarded up to the "C" part where previously the movies were storyboarded up to "D".
Shinji confirmed for angel holy shit.
Yamakan is too busy with the WUG movie.
whats the deal with those evangelion units corpses, and those ones with spears in their mouths?
>whats the deal with those evangelion units corpses
Probably just the failures of infinity from 3.33.
> and those ones with spears in their mouths?
That's some new imagery. Armorless Evas getting pierced with spears kind of like how the MP Eva line did during the 3rd Impact in EoE.
Anime Kaworu's bangs go to the left, Rebuild's go to the right. But Anime's was never that fluffy, it can only be Rebuildverse or Mangaverse Kaworu and I really doubt it's the latter.
>mfw this is all anno has accomplished since finishing 3.0
Anno does it again!
This was fucking confirmed since 1.0, you'd have to be fucking retarded to not think so until now.
Fun fact: Each short so far (excluding the gundam short) has had at least one reference to Evangelion, can you spot them all? This short and Me!Me!Me! are pretty obvious, but what about the others?
Why the fuck are they doing EVAshit? I thought this was funded to free these animators from the shackles of commercialism and let them run free with their imaginations... and then they just make more fucking EVA. Fuck you Anno.
Yes, I know that. I was wondering about that shot because I thought 2.0 Kaworu wasn't 3.0 Kaworu.
Rei Q is reflected on the Ghost Rei eye while Rei-of 2.0 is in Eva 01, doesn't this confirm Rei Q is the real Rei?
but Shikinami is shit and doesn't compare agaisnt Soryu
I had the theory that:
Poka Rei: Yui half, other in Eva.
Rei Q: Lilith half (other half ghosting around). Because it was Rei Q who recognized Lilith as her other self while Poka Rei is always related to Yui.
So Shinji's going to be chasing after Rei 2?
After watching this video, I finally have a meaning to my life.
He has a core for starters >>118535365 and he got an angel choker in 3.0 (it had anti angel sigils way before Kaworu tried it on, it was in the scene Ritsuko explained how it worked).
>how can shinji be an angel?
It's hinted everywhere in the rebuilds, even in the first movie. Either he was already one and never knew it or became one after the stunt he pulled at the end of 2.0. His awakening was even written in the Dead Sea Scrolls according to SEELE
Pilots in Rebuild aren't human, that was pretty obvious. Shinji was the reason Impacts happened in certain units, he and Kaworu were "the same". His eyes turned red when he tried to reach Rei.
I think it's weird how little this interests me. I'm the first one to stay up all night arguing about Eva, but this is just so unimportant to me.
I'm excited for FINAL, but this was really weak.
It's been hinted since forever Shinji's not normal. Kaworu awakes because he senses his "awakening."
Yui's birth was hidden on her gravestone of Rebuild too, unlike NGE.
What was that cutesy little finger-running thing between Q and Shinji?
Are those the four Adams maybe without the light-glow?
Gendo is the King of the Lilin.
Guarantee they'll fall in love but then she'll sacrifice herself or something.
She was fighting, that's different from playing Martyr to save the world.
The way her running hand disintegrates and crumbles and then the red world turns blue seems to hint at least they'll be close.
Fuck off, waifufag. I'm simply stating what seems to be evident so far with the rebuilds.
It's because retards see everyone else going "hurr durr bait" so they emulate it. I really do miss when I could say something sarcastic and not get 10 replies with fucking fish pictures.
I agree with this, Eva art was never that consistent.
>I'm disappointed there was no Misato in the short.
I was hoping for that too. We'll never have the adult characters fleshed out at all at this point. That was obvious since the 2.0 CRC said their scenes were cut.
>f/a/ggots still think any love relationship can survive the master's doing
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I hope Rei wins the Shinjibowl this time for real just to see your reaction, I am not even a Rei-Asuka-fag.
>having an Eva short 7 weeks into a 30 week long expo is fanservice
>Anno is responsible for making the expo happen
It's not fanservice, there have been some really good animations.
This shit is like a filter episode of Animator Expo.
It's like the short can't come out in time so they find some rebuild concept art and put it works.
Rebuilds suck. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if it went in this direction given everything so far. Why include the whole "save Rei fuck the world thing" in this story? What other purpose was there other than to include some plot where Shinji does everything he can to get his pokagirl? Why couldn't they just have it to where she sacrificed herself to save him like in the original? There's obviously something more to it.
>Pairing Shinji with the most ignored/hated character by fanbase
Every singleotherfag BTFO
They put all the versions of Asuka. So, why not him too?
Even his face expression show different emotions.
I see the one with the eyes closed with regret (not saving Shinji), middle one is just what manga!Kaworu was; he fell in love with him but he died, and last one is the fucking bishounen Kaworu from anime who wanted to be know about Shinji and show that smile.
Or I am reading too much, and in denial because is not the trio. ;_;
>Tsurumaki: There is probably some other intention there, so I think you should check with Anno-san [about that]. However, because there was a feeling that Rei III had been poorly developed in the TV series, after Rei II died in “Break”, we wanted to develop in detail the drama of Rei III in “Q” [3.0].
>Q: So it’s something you were not able to fully realize in the TV series. “Because I am the third” is an amazingly impactful, famous line of dialogue, but, in truth, I felt that [Rei III] didn’t really mean much after that…
>Tsurumaki: I thought going deeply into that would be interesting, even in a “Science Fiction”-like way. As Rei realizes the fact, and the significance of the fact, that there has been more than one Rei before her, how, as a clone, will she achieve her independence as an individual? I wanted to develop a story like that.
They'll flesh out Rei Q as Tsurumaki wanted, or should I call her Rei III as individual who isn't like the previous Rei.
Getting Shinji and Rei to fall in love is one thing, but Shinji and Q to fall in love?
The anal devastation will be apocalyptic.
THANK YOU ANNO
The video is set after 3.0. Just as some anons said, Rei "2" in Rebuild became associated with Yui while Rei "Q" (actually "3") became associated with Lilith.
The world seems restored thanks to Q.
Guys, they are really not going to have Rei Q win the Shinji.
Especially after 3.0.
I really want to say that they will expand on Rei Q though and she will form a bond with Shinji and maybe Asuka.
But it's the rebuilds and character development means shit.
No, about the Rei just like Yui is trapped in Eva and Gendo/Shinji fuck the world to try to get her back.
>Guys, they are really not going to have Rei Q win the Shinji.
No, they are going to do it. The butthurt will be immense from EVERYONE and Anno will revel in it. She'll die in the end I expect though but the next film is definitely focusing on them.
The number of coffins is most likely the number of loops, Kaworu resurrects in a new one in each loop, that's why it's called Taghba base.
Come on, this isn't rocket science.
I thought it was Rei II's finger, it looks too pale to be Shinji's
Shinji was trapped in an Eva already and they got him out just fine. Getting people out of Evas are not a big deal in evangelion. Shinji is hardly comparable to Gendo, the one who manipulated the entire plot in the first place. It's a weak comparison.
>tfw i honestly believe Anno is enough of an asshole to have Q win the Shinjibowl
Stealing some post from Evageeks:
Yesterday, a day before this new short was revealed Minna no Evafan made an interesting post: http://neweva.blog103.fc2.com/blog-entry-3482.html
In it they mention that given what we know from the 2.0 CRCs, Q's short running time and what we see in the making of feature, and the interviews:
-2.0 was broken down into 4 parts: A, B, C, D
-we know from Q making-of that Mari ejecting Shinji, pretty much the tail end of the movie is cut #1465 is Part C
-Q's Part A and B, up to the title break amount to 53 minuts. Part C is only 38 minutes
-we also know that the actual end with Asuka rescuing Shinji and the 3 kids walking off into the distance are cuts #1011-1033, meaning they were finalized in script/storyboards before the entire climactic dogma battle and 4th Impact
-we know from Megumi Ogata's interview in the theatrical booklet that after Kaworu died she couldn't bring herself to do any more lines and Anno was ok with that and adjusted the movie accordingly (I'm about 90% sure on this one, the translation on the wiki is only partial but i definitely remember seeing more bits of it on the internet.)
Given all of the above the theory is that Q originally had 4 parts just like 2.0 but Part D got dumped. The storyboards presented in the Shiro Sagisu video of the kids wandering the desert presumably came from that dumped Part D.
This all leads to speculation that Evangelion 3.0+1.0 is not in fact Shin/Final, but instead Evangelion Q as was released, plus the initially dumped Part D reattached. Thus instead of Q, we will get 急, as Jo-ha-kyū (序破急) implied from the start and only after that we'll get Shin/Final.
>implying that would stop the comatose masturbator
It's symbolic. Shinji's reflection was in his regular uniform, Rei Q in plugsuit. Rei Q in uniform, Shinji in plugsuit after. And the skin colour is Shinji's. Rei clones are more pale/sickly.
I want this to happen for the shitstorm.
Q...is going to win? Anno, you sly bastard.
Reminder that 3.0+1.0 will come out in 2015, every Rebuild film has come out three years after the previous one.
I agree with this, Q definitely feels like it had a part removed.
>This all leads to speculation that Evangelion 3.0+1.0 is not in fact Shin/Final, but instead Evangelion Q as was released, plus the initially dumped Part D reattached. Thus instead of Q, we will get 急, as Jo-ha-kyū (序破急) implied from the start and only after that we'll get Shin/Final.
This is so ridiculous that I can't bring myself to think that Anno can't do it.
This motherfucker is a fucking cunt.
We know she isn't Poka. Megumi mentions it and she has been spoiled about the multiplying Reis plot twist for next movie.
The whole point is Shinji accepting Q because she is NOT Rei.
You know Rei-Q has had character development right? I think you just accept that since they've been building that she's her own person, and she shouldn't try to act like Rei-2
>This all leads to speculation that Evangelion 3.0+1.0 is not in fact Shin/Final, but instead Evangelion Q as was released, plus the initially dumped Part D reattached. Thus instead of Q, we will get 急, as Jo-ha-kyū (序破急) implied from the start and only after that we'll get Shin/Final.
So it's basically a glorified director's cut? Anno at it again.
guys it all makes sense, Asuka won in the original series, now is the turn of Rei, damn it Anno
The clones are their own individuals and are meant to be developed as such >>118538067
>will she achieve her independence as an individual?
She will remember(if she's the old one), or she will make new memories in some cheesy shit.
I hope Rei Q wins. Finally, being the sole genuine ReiQfag will pay off after years of being bullied and harassed by Reifags who hated her for the crime of not being Rei. I was so hopeful that she'd get to become her own person, and for a time my faith had wavered, but now it's reignited.
She hasn't though, she's just doing what Asuka tells her to do and trying to think about "what Rei 2 would do", she isn't being her own person so far
I'd welcome it because I don't see the point of trying to be another person for that character
Rei isn't the exact clone of Shinji's mother and as far I do understand, Yui's soul was in the EVA 01, and Lilith soul in the REI series, so I think you could be right in a unknown percentage but not 100% right.
Rei is a "monster" that looks likes Shinji's mother but that's all.
This makes a lot of sense, Minna no Evafan is usually on the mark with these kinds of things too.
>yfw Anno considers Kaworu the healthiest and best choice for Shinji
>Asuka won in the original series
>Being a side dish is now winning
>A prince on a white horse isn't going to come down and grant all your desires.
Yes he is, and his name is Ikuhara.
>implying I said otherwise
Thought pretty much every relationship other than Kaworu is way more realistic, as they are people with flaws and complexes and their own needs
>It's only the URL that says final though.
...Yes and? Are you this stupid you take evageeker speculation which has NO support in fact over a fact presented by a website made by Khara?
Pleas we all know Asuka is going to pull a hat trick and win again.
Well by win be the only person left alive with him in the end.
Though this time they will probably have more to talk about then that one time Shinji jerked off over her comatose body.
>He speaks the truth so he must be a crossboarder!
Grow the fuck up. Shinji said the words "I love Kaworu" straight to Misato's face, no ounce of delusion will ever cover up that fact. Anno wants to piss off as many Otaku/Waifufags as he can, after all.
No, I think that making Asuka die slowly, after being stabbed, losing her eye and getting impotent over treated like a meal who got savagely torn into pieces and consumed got the cake.
He really likes torturing her.
>Implying Shinji ever loved anyone
Seriously, it's like Kawoshinfags ignore everything in EOE that doesn't support their ship. I mean shit the original and EOE spell it out for you. Shinji can't love anybody without first learning to love himself.
>Forever in Shinji's heart as the words "I love you"
I'd take that over Asuka dying and screaming from the MP Evas where Shinji can actually hear her, but HE STILL doesn't seem to give two shits.
But Kaworu said he'll meet Shinji again. You're a bit reaching and frustrated. I'm sorry your crack pairing can't happen.
But Mari was made to compensate it? Shinji's going to fuck a Rei or Kaworu.
>Rei Q wins da Shinjibowl
This is hilarious. I love Anno.
If that was the case then what was the fucking point of putting this scene in? If your interpretation is really true then why didn't Anno make it more obvious? Why did Anno make Shinji love Kaworu if it was supposed to be interpreted differently? You're also intentionally ignoring the whole ideal self thing Anno said in the June interview, there's a reason why Kaworu is a boy and not a girl after all.
It's been almost 20 years, just face the music already Evageeks. Your precious self-insert is a faggot.
You should be able to relate to him even more now.
>Never watch anime seriously before
>Want to watch another anime
>Find out rebuild exist
Should I move on, or watch rebuild first?
...was that cutesy shit going on with Q and Shinji? Q is going to win the Shinjibowl? Anno...godammit.
But, I must say, the massive shitstorm that follows will surely be entertaining.
>implying I ship
Keep grasping though. He can say whatever he wants, but it never comes through. Karl wanted Shinji to remember him and look at him being forgotten completely in the new world.
Nobody cares. Asuka is forever buttmad she's a sidedish to everyone, even in Q she selfishly complained to Shinji why he didn't save her.
Why are her fans with such inferiority complex?
Guys neither Rei and Kaworu are going to win Shinji ever, they will never be lasting relationships and you all know why.
They both play very important parts in Shinji's life, but they won't and can't last.
Asuka was his foil, she was also never really a viable love interest either, well she was in NGE, who knows what the fuck she will do in Rebuild.
Stop being retarded.
Have you seen End of Evangelion?
If not watch that immediately.
Then you should watch Rebuild. It's not exactly a remake, and it should be watched after the original series and movie.
>Asuka was his foil, she was also never really a viable love interest either, well she was in NGE, who knows what the fuck she will do in Rebuild.
The Soryuu vs Shikinami designs are very symbolic. She's sexualized in NGE while she's not in Rebuild, because his relationship is platonic.
>Actually comparing Shikinami to Soryu
That's just insulting to Shikinami.
No one said Kaworu was smart, he doesn't have a fruit of knowledge he has the fruit of life. Doubt you would know that though, considering you didn't watch the original series.
How does that prove anything against Kaworu and Shinji's relationship though? Yeah.
Look, Eva isn't a romance and I sure as hell don't want it to be. I may support Shinji with Kaworu the most but if Shinji and Q hook up in 3.0 + 1.0 I will be super fucking happy eternally drinking up you and everyone else's tears.
As long as they're released fairly close together I wouldn't even be mad.
It's just evangelion in movie form with minor differences, and 90% of those minor differences were all bad changes which baiscally removed a lot of things that made evangelion good, it's effectively just evangelion sped up and cutting 90% of the content.
My exact reaction.
MEMEME was interesting in what it did with Eva elements, but this is just boring.
Fuck Shinji. I am so fucking sick of him. He can rot for all I care.
>My gut tells me Reifags but maybe they'd backpedal on all their criticism if it happened.
Me as well. They're not even protesting in this thread, which tells me they lied about being above it all and were shippingshit like the rest all along
It's thematic that Shinji will learn to love Rei Q and she's not the Rei he knew. Because it's the symbol he's accepting change. If this is romantic or not, who can say, but if you thought Asuka was going to play a bigger role over Rei Q is pretty dumb. Asuka got her closure with Shinji when she helped him in the end of 3.0, Shinji has yet to acknowledge Rei Q and she's still forming her independence.
There's nothing unresolved between Asuka and Shinji now she went back to help him and he accepted her help.
Have fun catching crabs, anon-kun.
>Samefagging this hard for attention
>One morning Rei got rather full, her head felt heavy which made her shake
She fell from a ladder and he broke her skull, and they carried her home her corpse to wake
There is literally no chance in hell they would put Shinji in a romantic relationship with either Rei or Rei Q.
3.0 went out of its way to discourage that and remind everyone that Rei is Yui.
I hope most of you are just trolling and not actually this crazy.
I'm a Kaworufag and I'll be OK if Rei Q wins, because of the sheer hilarity and reactions. But I fear the backpedal hypocrisy too.
I didn't like how Shinji treated her in 3.0 but if he stops being an asshole, it's ok with me.
It's a fanservice illust. It is not meant to be taken as canon and it doesn't make any sense to be either. Sadamoto does it a lot. Do you seriously believe every single illust Sadamoto does has is presenting a situation that actually happened? Face it, he got forgotten. Only one we see again is Kensuke, Asuka and Shinji. Regular humans.
Maybe Anno is trying to save face by trying to deliver 3.0 + 4.0 like he originally planned to. This is similar to the Death and Rebirth leading up to a few minutes of EoE. 3.0 + 1.0 is going to recap with a 10-15 teaser of 4.0 and the year after 4.0 final will be screened.
I used to hate Asuka because I thought she was a generic tsundere character. But eventually it was pointed out to me that's she's not even 10% tsundere. She's just 100% bitch. And now I like her more as a character.
Rei is still superior though. Rei was basically the first of her kind (kuudere). Asuka is just that red haired girl from Gunbuster.
Another Kaworufag here, I also am rooting for Rei Q's win. Double whammy to the cancer that is Eva Waifufags.
>There's nothing unresolved between Asuka and Shinji now she went back to help him and he accepted her help.
Their unresolved issues are about him helping her, not the other way around.
Both her and Mari want Shinji to man up and protect Asuka.
Which makes no sense since she is an adult, and he is a child, but w/e.
>I hope the animator actually wanted to do this, and didn't feel pressured in to doing it by Anno or something though.
The director of the short drew the cat illustration for the khara calendar. He's a background artist and probably drew all those background for the movie before that part was cut and this short might be his way of getting his work seen and Anno's apology to him.
You realize you both are cancerous waifufag shippers too, right? Like, a fanbase built on shipping a shallow character like Kaworu. Your superiority complex is hilarious.
Alright, so I'm reading the EvaWiki about rebuild
What the fuck is with all the new Evas? What the fuck is beast mode? What the fuck is with all this weird shit? I thought this was a fucking remake?
Well shipping is w/e in NGE, it's kinda the only thing in the rebuilds.
Especially for Asuka, since Shinji is literally the only thing she desires in life apparently. So her fans want her to succeed and be happy.
A year seems like a long time. Final is well underway by now if not close to being finished. I'd bet on 3.0+1.0 with Final a few months behind to really get the hype train rolling.
Shinji didn't react first and then he did. It was something, just like accepting to go to Misato eventually wrap up their relationship. Theirs is nearly finalized.
Shinji has to resolve the following:
- His father and Misato drama, relating to his parental figures.
- His Rei Q acceptance/his Rei Issues relating to ending the world.
Asuka is resolved, with a peptalk or two it's wrapped up. Kaworu, if he appears, is resolved too, he just needs to see him again which he can in Instrumentality to give him peace of mind.
In EoE, his relationship with Asuka was the one unresolved, it's not like that in Rebuild. I'm not even speaking in romance but relationship focus.
There's not much you can do with Evangelion in regards to videogames.. The human elements wouldn't make very interesting gameplay and then you're just left with essentially mech/super robot combat.
Star wars has alot of diverse genre's to build into.
It's one-sided and Shinji could care less about Asuka and her problems so it isn't worthy of delving into.
In the Anime, Shinji only cared about the albinos and his father.
In the Manga, Shinji only cared about the albinos and his father.
In Rebuild, Shinji only cared about the albinos and his father.
Seeing a pattern here, anon?
Also someone post a webm of the Rei Q x Shinji finger scene, shit was fucking cute.
>that fucking cat
please forgive the incorrect aspect ratio
No offense but this shit was kind of obvious from the beginning, with Kaworu and SEELE talking about his awakening process being written in the Dead Sea Scrolls during the final shot of 1.11
As a no-onefag, I'm more amused about Kaworufags suddenly liking anything to do with Rei now when you guys were trying and failing to buddy up with Asukafags before.
Boohoo, cry more.
Unlike waifufags, I don't watch Eva for nonexistent harem shenanigans.
And I actually like Rei and Asuka more than Kaworu, I ship Kawoshin because I'm a Shinjifag who wants him to be happy.
It's actually pretty obvious if you're not blind.
I like Asuka as well (mostly Soryuu). I just don't think she fits a romantic interest in Rebuild.
Just because I'm a xfag, doesn't mean I hate any character. I think Rei Q "winning" would be just hilarious. I wouldn't ship them, but the thought is amusing.
Except he does care, both when she almost died, and when he saw her for the first time in 3.33, he shows large amounts of emotions, he almost destroyed nerve and tried kill his father, and was estatic when she was fine.
I'm not shipping them, Shinji isn't going to end up with anyone, because he never does, but she is one of his few friends and bonds in this world. They spent time building that stupid ass storyline up, and focusing Asukas entire character around, there will be some kind of pay off between them.
You think someone's going to get an Evangelion Calendar and not recognize those legs?
Unless you're like an ultra casual Eva viewer (or just stupid), I think most people would pick up on the fact that those are the legs of the 3 Children from the end of 3.33.
Better question: does this confirm that Shinji is an ordinary angel or something more, such as a seed of life/FAR like Rei or Kaworu?
I'm betting on the latter since Anima stated he was some FAR being called Eve. And we now know that Anno did have a 'talk' with Yamashita before he began writing the novels.
Human elements can make for great gameplay. Robot combat can be the bread and butter but being able to make choices that affect how the story progress in an Eva game would be great. Then you smash the two together and end up with an action RPG thing.
Kaworu is Adam
Rei is Lilith
Shinji is Eve
Mari is the Holy Mary
Rei Q isn't Rei. I was bullied by Reifags because I am a ReiQfag.
If this is a sequel to NGE, Asuka and Shinji were changed because of coming back from a mixture of Adam and Lilith (Adam And Lilith also changed because they were joined together).
>yfw Rei Q actually is perfectly fine
>yfw Rei Q turns out to be best girl
Nah, Don't project your own interests onto me Waifufag.
NGE 2 is good for the scenarios/storyline, gameplay is pretty shit. The Puchi Eva game for the DS is also good because it's Puchi Eva. Everything else is shit and not worth the money.
>mfw Kaworu is irrelevant and I get Asuka/Mari and Shinji/Q end
There's not much art of Rei Q, based fujos give us what we can.
In Rebuild. I never understood the hate.
I'm more than satisfied with the 5 minutes of Giant Naked Kaworu that I'll inevitably get just like in EoE.
The eternal butthurt of Evageeks and Reifags is what I'm really looking forward to.
Spear in mouth at the end of EOE.
And they never said she was going to win. What's your point? Liking a character isn't the same as liking a pairing. Misato is the best character in this show and I don't pair her off with Shinji.
I don't get it.
Even Rei 2 didn't do cute shit like the finger thing Rei Q did with Shinji. Last time I checked, she was an absolute robot. What's up with this 180 of the character?
As an Asukafag I don't take any hostile actions personally, and totally understand why they want Shinji all to themselves.
But please guys, you don't have to be this cruel, there is no greater hell then damning Asuka to a life with mari.
Poor girl has been through enough, have a heart.
I'm not talking about Eva as a whole, just this specific piece. I should be excited that there's a new, original short, but it's more enjoyable and interesting to read fucking speculations and waifu arguments.
More like we want Asuka to be happy, just like Rei and Shinji. That sure as hell isn't going in a texas trailer beating the shit out of Shinji with a frying pan. Mari an undeveloped shit but she's better than nothing.
I think Mari is better for Shikinami than Shinji is. Shinji's prone to end the world and dismiss her for muh daddy issues, while Mari backs her up as partner. Not just in a romance side, I mean it Shinji is bad for Shikinami.
They don't mesh well either. In EoE, both were equally fucked up. But in Rebuild it feels she's more grounded and she has to deal with a kid she has an obvious resentment and mixed feelings.
They don't give a fuck as long as you aren't shipping someone with Shinji is the point, but they will gladly use that to shitpost one of the girls. Like this post does >>118540887
Suddenly, Shinji does not give a shit about Asuka. Which is laughable because Rebuild Shinji actually made friends with all the pilots.
Not that anon but I expressed it here: >>118542075
I ship Soryuu/Therapy and Shinji/therapy in EoE. But as far as Rebuild goes, I can't think anything Shinji has to offer to Asuka as partner, romantic or friend, after 3.0. She's more like his sour guardian.
She clearly hasn't resolved all her anxieties since she seems rather immature for a 28 year old. I really just want her to learn to love herself in final above all, and if it takes pairing her off with Mari to do that then I won't complain.
She really deserves a happy ending since she got jack shit in EoE.
I liked the subtle touch that Rei Q is her own person. Asuka and Kaworu both got montages of their various incarnations, but Rei Q simply shows up as herself. No Yui, no Rei II, just her.
There are still people out there who haven't figured out that Rei is Shinji's
Eve's child, and that the entirety of this new movie franchise is about a mother and child trying to reunitewith each other.
Just like how people couldn't put two and two together that Rebuild's Shinji was always an angel or FAR from the beginning; or the all of the denial about the Rebuilds being a sequel.
You're all going to get BTFO when this ends up being true. Screencap this.
>She really deserves a happy ending since she got jack shit in EoE.
Yuko agrees with you.
Khara products manga have been pushing the Rei/Shinji angle for a while, in the hetero pairs.
Now you are just underselling Shinji.
He wasn't that bad in the rebuilds, only until absolute bullshit that happened in 3.33 does he breakdown completely, and that wont be permanent.
Aside from fucking this guy a couple times, yes.
Do you really think all Asukafags despise Rei as much as they claim to in their shitflinging posts? Same goes for Reifags.
In Waifuwars threads "doll" and "bitch" will be thrown around to no tomorrow, but I sincerely doubt all Asukafags truly hate Rei and Reifags truly hate Asuka. You can't take how posters act in a shitflinging thread as their true thoughts.
Most Eva fans, us Kaworufags included, love all the characters to some degree and are genuinely interesting in their individual arcs.
I care about Asuka, I care about Rei, I care about Misato, and I care about Shinji. Astonishing, I know.
I've wanted to write a story where Asuka and Shinji wake up like 500 years after EOE where technology is knocked back to sub-medieval levels, and the kids are worshiped as pseudo- gods. Rei worshipers are in a constant state of warfare with the Asuka worshipers.
Shinji left Asuka to the dogs because he was angry with his father. Misato asked if he wanted him to know how she was and Shinji told her to fuck off, walked away and endangered her (and everyone) because he felt his father hurt him. Unlike the scene with Toji that makes Toji appear in his unconscious, his train of thoughts focuses on his hurt for Gendo.
It doesn't matter if he'll recover. He's a kid now and she's acting like his babysitter. They'll never be comrades again. Mari plays off Asuka's bitterness with her genki mode very well.
You're cute. Anno cut down all sexual implications, even between Misato and Kaji.
In the time between 3.0+1.0's announcement and now, I've gotten really into Gundam.
I'm scared that Eva will become the new Gundam. I want it to die so that I have closure in my life. I don't want to be forty years old and see new evangelion movies being announced.
>more talk about fucking shipping and who's going to win the damn Shinji b owl than actual discussion about the shot of the four Adams, the failures of infinity, the close-up shot of Rei 2 reflected in Rei Q's eyes or the confirmation of Shinji being a FUCKING ANGEL
Jesus christ I fucking hate this fanbase.
Kaworufags are the most disgusting shitposters around, I don't forget how you shat up generals with shipping shit and wars and ruined threads for months.
It's because gay people are mentally ill that they're able to shitpost so hard.
>wanting a happy ending
Fuck off, you know nothing about Eva. You just jumped on the waifu bandwagon.
He attacked Gendo because he was mad about Asuka, he even directly says maybe his father would understand how he felt if he lost someone important to him.
He ran away because that's what Shinji does, he runs away.
They are still comrades, even after he started the 4th impact, Asuka didn't give up on him, and saved his ass. Asuka doesn't see her role as his babysitter, she didn't want to come save him, she wanted him to come save her, she is tusndere as all hell for him in that movie, even Mari ships the two of them.
They are not going to get together, and I doubt Shinji has actual romantic feelings for her, but you are seriously underselling their relationship.
Asukas entire character in the rebuilds is literally to pine after Shinji.
Wrong, people only want their waifus to win the Shinjib owl, because they're brainwashed to believe that such a fucked up kid is their waifu's only gate way to happiness.
The majority of /a/ doesn't give a single fuck about Shinji and it shows in this thread.
>only want their waifus to win the Shinjib owl
Nope, not me.
>hurr why are Kaworushinfags talking about shipping in this thread, fucking shitposters!
So delusional it hurts.
>It's because gay people are mentally ill
Don't be so hard on yourself, anon-kun.
So Rei Q and Shinji are going to fall in love?
What the fuck?
>3 blades stabbed into Shinji's core
Why does it remind me of this? If I recall, Sahaquiel's core was stabbed with three prog knives in 2.22.
Nope. It's just more evidence to strengthen the mother-child thing going on between them. And no, it's not what you think it is regarding the mother-child undertones between them.
Oh god, this is just too good.
Shinji and Q (one of the most hated characters in Eva ever) are going to fall in love. Anno! You expert, rooting-tooting, crazy madman! You've done it again! You've found a way to make everyone even more angry!
>Subject is yfw Rei wins
Can you not read or can you not read?
Fuck, that's a good catch. I'm just interested in how the whole core in human body thing works. Why the fuck didn't Shinji notice there was a giant sphere of blood in his fucking chest?
Does Asuka have one too?
No ambiguous shit either, I want Rei Q with proper character development getting with Shinji so Reifag's and Asukafag's asses are ripped to shreds. Anno make me proud.
>There's not much art of Rei Q
166 pics isn't that bad anon.
>Why the fuck can't Anno just make the pilots friends without throwing romance in anyway?
Because Eva isn't about happy endings? He's put little romance in, anyways. You shipping faggots take every instance of two characters being on screen and run a fucking mile with it.
>outright EOE references, loop confirmed
>4 Adams/Gendo/Kaworu linked with Shinji having a core
>random exploitative shots of Asuka because that's all she's good for now
>Rei Q and Shinji wandering the world, maybe Q trying to connect with Shinji but can't
>no fucking MARI
Pretty good, for once. Gendo and Kaworu together for the "plot" section was interesting.
>Fuck, that's a good catch. I'm just interested in how the whole core in human body thing works. Why the fuck didn't Shinji notice there was a giant sphere of blood in his fucking chest?
good question. I'm assuming it's something that grew and developed in his body over time during the time skip, and was eventually removed. Or maybe cores in humans don't manifest themselves into large, blaring physical organs on the chest unless if something triggers them to appear? Or the shot of Shinji's core is just entirely symbolic. It's hard to say really.
Better add an implied sex scene as well.
Yeah I've seen it before. I guess it's safe to assume the core just rises to the surface of the skin when they awaken angel mode.
Learn to fucking read before posting. We're referring to this >>118542640 where anon linked to a thread where Kaworufags are supposedly "shitposting", but said thread was a shipping thread to begin with plus Blue vs. Red for the first 3/4ths of the thread anyway.
That moment half these fucks that ship say out loud to their self's.
>Super important part of the show "all these words and fighting and moon speak sucks where muh boy meets girl romance at".
Sad thing that petty much the people that make up a good 60% of Evangelion fan base.
>Why the fuck can't Anno just make the pilots friends without throwing romance in anyway?
You already got that in 1.11 and 2.22 regarding Shinji's relationships with Rei and Asuka. Yet people still tried to look for shipping shit in it even though Rei was vague as fuck about it and it was all one-sided on Asuka's side of the story.
His relationship with Kaworu appears to be the only obvious romantic one so far.
I'm good with Shinji/Q happening, but if people are being serious about this being romantic or confirming shit then I can't wait for the asspain when nothing happens. It'll be like the manga all over again.
Did you not watch the video and notice the giant core situated in Shinji's chest? Or pick up on all of the cues and hints about Shinji being something inhuman as early as 1.11?
>I consider Eva entertainment, not a way of life.
Humanity was created for the explicit purpose of creating Eva. We serve no other purpose.
Gendo and Kaworu are also together on the 2015 Eva calendar if that means anything.
Probably doesn't but oh well.
Eva isn't a romance, anon-kun. Why do I have to keep reminding you? Just go watch a generic harem if you want that kind of shit.
As long as final gives Shinji a proper concluding character arc and gives everyone else at least a subpar conclusion I think I'll be satisfied. Keeping my expectations relatively low since 2.0 and 3.0 were both pretty lame.
It's been confirmed since 1.0, this shouldn't be surprising.
Are they drinking beer in that picture?
