Post series where the right girl won.
Here we see a seventeen-year-old boy kissing a twenty-nine-year-old woman, as God intended.
>fell in love with him when they were both middle/high school students
>the guy she went out with in the 10+ years they were separated was an older clone of him
Truly faithful Christmas cakes get what they deserve. I was a Megu guy, but it still felt right for Haruka to win. Although technically everyone won when Ayato retuned the world in the movie.
Apologies for the tumblr image, I GIS'd it.
It did all of the Eva parts better than Eva did, though, and it's not nearly as pretentious.
The way I look at it is like Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot. Holmes is definitely the original and defining detective, but Poirot's cases and methods could be argued to be improvements on the original (at least, I liked the little Belgian better).
Imouto was a cunt. She is the perfect example of what should have happened to Asuka in NGE for being a tsundere bitch: getting ignored for a better woman.
>It did all of the Eva parts better than Eva did.
I keep hearing this all the time and I simply cannot agree.
Rahxephon had some good stuff but it lacked the cohesive direction that Eva has.
The last 5 or so eps for RahX are a massive clusterfuck that feel greatly disconnected from everything else. In Eva at least everything was a controlled clusterfuck, and the overall pacing was superb.
Yeah, no. That show was such an unremarkable knockoff that I can't even remember the title right now. It did nothing better than Eva, and contributed nothing original. That is why today Eva is one of the most influential works in the history of animation, and whatever the fuck that show is called pretty much dropped off the face of the earth as soon as it finished airing.
Also why has it become so popular to hate Eva in the last few years? Is it the influx of normalfags? The show isn't even that pretentious, it's just strange. Eva is pretentious has pretty much reached meme status at this point.
I give Fa a lot of credit. She put up with a ton of Kamille's bullshit and became his girlfriend through sheer stamina and by not dying like every other woman he came in contact with.
But... But she gave him something else, right? Fuck me, my memory is going. Also, was Asahina even in the Ayatobowl? The whole thing with her was more out of Ayato's sense of obligation to her as a friend.
Popularity backlash. When something is hyped up and/or becomes extremely popular, you will always have a percentage of people who simply don't like it because of personal taste, people who watched it because of hype and wound up disappointed, and those who simply want to be contrarian. The haters have just gotten louder over the years.
>The show isn't even that pretentious
It's really not. It was the "intellectual" fans who fancied themselves watching something that was superior to anything they could find on Western television and made everything that they saw in Evangelion out to be more than what it was. They saw the Biblical allusions, and references to science and religion and thought that they were smarter than others simply because they were watching a "smarter" show. It doesn't help that you also have a degree of people who think they are better just because they watch animation in a foreign language that very few outside of Japan know, understand, or can even hope to master.
>12-year-old boy being tongue kissed by 15-year-old ghost waifu
No. Haruka gave him the gloves, Megumi didn't even buy him anything. She bought the major a tie, and it was awkward because her best friend was right there and fucking the major behind her back. Megumi was a good girl, but she wasn't at all committed to Ayato like her sister was. OP said "right girl", not "best girl".
Also, I don't think Asahina was in the Ayatobowl. Wasn't she with Mamoru or whatever Ayato's friend's name was? I don't remember him ever showing interest in her.
>The last 5 or so eps for RahX are a massive clusterfuck
>In Eva at least everything was a controlled clusterfuck
Maybe both are just trashy clusterfucks? Yeah, I like that explanation.
>The show isn't even that pretentious
/a/tards believe this
I get the popularity backlash, but the timing seems off. Maybe it's just my perception, but it seems like it's only become popular to hate on Eva in the last 5 or 6 years, but it's been near the top of the list of most popular series since the mid-late 90s. Until fairly recently, it was taken for granted around here that Eva was a great show.
That's why I wonder if it's 4chan's changing demographics. Maybe normalfags or the rise or hipsterism or something.
Rahxephon is a nearly empty exercise of style. It tries to do the same as Eva but it doesn't realize Eva's apparent plot is just a container of Shinji's internal journey, and all the Eva's imagery works towards that goal. Meanwhile, Rahxephon does take it's plot seriously and puts all the effort at telling its intricate story about inter-dimensional ancient aliens and evil corporations, throwing tons of cool imagery in the mix just for the sake of looking cool.
>throwing tons of cool imagery in the mix just for the sake of looking cool.
thats the oppossite of rah and the exact reaosn eva's 3rd act falls apart, evangelion suffers from pointless symbolism that masks the lack of depth and structure of its messy final 8 episodes, rahXephon is far more down to earth and honest with itself and when it does symbollism its done more than to just make the characters psyche seem more complex than it actually it
and frankly tv shinji is a shitty character no matter how you look at it, manga shinji has far more believable actions.
Every single Eva character's manga version is an improvement over his or her anime counterpart. if Sadamoto did something right was dropping action scenes in favour of character development.
>It's really not. It was the "intellectual" fans who fancied themselves watching something that was superior to anything they could find on Western television and made everything that they saw in Evangelion out to be more than what it was.
That's pretty much true for all anime fanbases, Eva just gets more shit for it. I mean even in this thread the people hating on Eva aren't doing it on absolute grounds. They're comparing it to some other show that they think makes them superior for enjoying.
>not boy on boy
plz anon everyone knows gay boys are the purest form of love
I'm not mad. Clearly the author was pressured into doing that ending so I don't consider it a true and canon ending. But to everyone that thinks they actually ended up together in the true universe, stay delusional.
>But to everyone that thinks they actually ended up together in the true universe, stay delusional.
This is a complete new level of denial.
Wow. I must have been zapped by some cosmic ray cause I have no recollection from watching this series. All I know is that I watched it and remember it being a lot like Eva. Xam'd is another case of that.
GE - Good Ending
Probably the only harem manga I've read other than Suzuka where the best girl won.
Much like Eva, Sherlock Holmes wasn't well-loved because of the strength of its writing, but because it introduced a novel genre that audiences hadn't experienced before.
By today's standards, both are mediocre.
Everyone wins in the end of the show as well, sort of anyway I just rewatched it last week, it was great. Better than I remembered. I'm actually about to start the movie as soon as I finish watching the airing shows I haven't seen episodes of yet (and shitposting on /a/).
Evangelion has actual symbolism that has real meaning: Shinji's cassette player, Gendo's glasses, Misato's cross. People confuse symbolism with imagery, when they aren't the same thing at all. Symbolism is just when a concrete thing refers to a more abstract concept. People also confuse Evangelion's intertextualism with overt symbolism. Seele's representation as monoliths don't have much meaning on their own but act as visual allusions to 2001 which makes sense given the ties between both stories with evolution and transhumanism.
The comparison makes no sense. Evangelion operated within traditional genre confines for the first half of its running and in no way created a new genre - only an emphasized focus on character.
I would agree that by today's standards, Sherlock Holmes is mediocre. But Evangelion is not, by any stretch, mediocre.
Sherlock Holmes was milked to death with tons of filler novels, but the good ones still stand. The same goes for Eva, it's not a mind-breaking experience nowadays but still good watch.
It might not be a "mind-breaking experience" if you've seen the many Evangelion knockoffs and Evangelion influenced anime before watching it. It cheapens the original work by reusing its thematic content
>Poor man's EVA, pretentious
>Ayato has more of a backbone than Shinji
>Determined to become god by his own volition
Niggerwat, are we even watching the same show? Also, manga Ayato is alpha as fuck
Haruka is the only good thing about that show, imo. The entire plot/mystery hinges around people either not telling others the story (excluding Haruka) when they have many chances or cutting off people who are about to tell the mystery. Hell,
all Papa Ayato needed to do was say that Ayato wasn't just a Mu, and then there would have been no reason to return to Jupiter, and so the whole second half of the story wouldn't have occurred.
please filter all tripfags as you will be doing this site a huge favour
Don't deny it. Search your heart, you know it to be true.
This series' OST was so fucking good, I still can't get enough of it. I like Rahxephon so much more because the idea of the mechas being able to attack with music or the pilot themselves singing to attack, Ayato's objective to 'tune' the world, is such a great concept that I've always loved.
If you're trying to convince people to filter tripfags, remember to save this one.
PROTOCULTURE HELL YEA
I wanted to post protoculture with protoculture one letter at a time down the left margin, but 4chan wouldn't let me.
She is an airheaded retard without the capacity to love. Our hero wanted to fuck her so bad he was ready to throw away the best honey to get it, despite the fact that she super loved him. At 75 percent though the series, he was still trying to throw away the best shit. He came to his senses, after minmei was trying to lure him in. She said at the 95 percent mark that she truly loved him, only to reveal after he finally made his choice in best girl that she was only doing it because she was jealous and would have fucked it up immediately.
I know and I agree, but the person seemed to believe the TV ending would later end the same as EoE. I like to think things would've gone differently with the TV ending since EoE wasn't made until later.
It's times like this where I feel deep connections with the /a/ community despite not watching the current /a/ moe garbage.
"I'm sorry, I'm not familiar with cute girls doing cute things"
I honestly believe everyone who tripfags without a specific reason to (like Rello single-handedly translating Helck) is a troll. They have to know what complete faggots they look like for trying to have an identity here like it was reddit.
>Haruka is the only good thing about that show, imo
>forgetting the based OST
This is the only Type Moon thing I'm ever going to watch or even attempt to know about, but I'm glad she won. The other girls were all too permissive, Shirou needs a girl who can bully him.
>Also why has it become so popular to hate Eva in the last few years? Is it the influx of normalfags? The show isn't even that pretentious, it's just strange. Eva is pretentious has pretty much reached meme status at this point.
STUPID fucking redditor.
People like you are the reason why there's an Eva backlash. Especially, when you assholes over-analyze it to death. Rahxephon tells a more cohesive story than Eva. Also, it's a romance & a coming of age story. Eva is not that, at all. Get your head out of your ass.
I was never Eva's biggest fan, but maybe it has to do with those movies or the fact that there too many Eva threads around here like every single fucking day or people like you that talk down everything else, because it's not Eva? You know how many Eva fans I have met that do that? It's really annoying.
How full of shit can you be? The subplots in Rahxephon help to deepen the main one. Also there was actual research done.
If anything I think that the Eva manga was better than the anime.
>anime faggot detected
This is why we don't let you into our threads.
Teiichi's a first-year in middle school, which is 7th grade. And despite being a kid, he's far more tolerant of Yuuko's ecchi-ness than most protagonists of the genre would be.
>People confuse symbolism with imagery, when they aren't the same thing at all.
Yeah, but they were using symbols that have significant meaning as useless imagery. It just ends up with a garbled message.
>>one has earrings
That barely means anything in real life, let alone in anime.
>and women's clothing on
How can you tell that from the pic? Just looks like a yellow shirt.
asahina herself wants ayato's dick, but settle for mamoru instead (who is salty as fuck about it).
she gave up because she knows ayato wont look at another girls beside "mishima".
and you know how it goes, turns out she cant really fully gave up, heck you cant ignore her "messages" before ayato brutally raped her doll.
>ell in love with him when they were both middle/high school students
>>the guy she went out with in the 10+ years they were separated was an older clone of him
>Truly faithful Christmas cakes get what they deserve. I was a Megu guy, but it still felt right for Haruka to win. Although technically everyone won when Ayato retuned the world in the movie.
i still cant get over that haruka was itsuki's ex... i mean they surely fucked when they date right? man i remember when ayato saw itsuki forcing to kiss haruka.. meh
summary, but there are some points that gets explained better in the movie once you finished watching the original series.
oh and that sex scene lol
Which would completely destroy whatever character development he had up to that point. Stop it, she remains a duck and he remains a human, nothing can change that. They're both satisfied with that outcome.
Yea, it did but felt very tacked on.
Shuffle had an atypical end romance too.
Very unexpected that green hair girl won
Also I now remember Strawberry Panic thanks to the man who linked Ichigo 100%.
Thought Ichigo 100% was also called Strawberry Panic but Strawberry was the yuri anime I forgot the name of.
These two were made for each other.
btw. love-to-choc was shit.
Colorus on the others side made my month ;)
Is there any form of love purer than the love between a cake and a younger man?
Don't fall for the cake propaganda.
This is just femanon shitposting, they're realizing they're getting older, their tits are sagging and their wombs are drying out meaning that their days of riding the alpha male cock carousel are indefinitely over.
What they're trying to do here is condition good /a/nons into finding used-up, older women attractive so that they can trick them into becoming their beta providers.
It's sad knowing that these women have squandered their youth on drugs, one-night stands and Fujoshi anime, but don't let them take you down with them!
Ignore/report cake threads.
Not really. It was reached multiple times during the whole Naruto/Hinata thing.
How can the truth be propaganda? We all admit that 3D Cakes are cancer while 2D is perfection
Think you're being subtle femanon?
Well I've got fucking news for you, I won't let you waste and destroy good /a/nons lives.
That's how it starts, first you condition them into finding idealized 2D cakes attractive and to ignore young, fertile women and lolis.
Then you swoop in and start seeping lies about how "3D ain't so bad", "a 3D cake will watch anime with you and love you anon!" or "don't you want an experienced woman? I've had 25 sexual partners already, you should marry me anon!".
Not today, not today femwhore.
Holy fuck, stop shitting up the thread fujo.
Kaworu is literally a non-character, stop posting your fanfics and this thread is about girls.
Try to respond with your epik le shinji is best girl meme and I'll fucking crush your skull
Why do you always have to bring your shit to unrelated threads? You have the designated homo thread, you're welcome to go there.
Not a series but yeah
Fuck man, there is a severe lack of anime where the cake wins.
What else is there?
I would fucking kill to meet an Anon that understands Katanagatari.
That's the whole point.
You just know he's going to find her after he graduates and she'll give him the finest footjob of his life.
Long story short, she's a depressed teacher and he's a student. They meet in the park, the student falls in love with her but she doesn't want to take advantage of him. He gets angry and she hugs him, thanking him for giving her the strength to go on
Kind of. Mangas just not over.
Monkey girl second best
Tiger girl third
what about a 14 year old boy kissing a 27 year old woman?
so you could see her mouth move, i guess
So she has to move on in the 2-3 weeks after Kaji's death and her inevitable death? No, nigger.
Plus, Shinji already rejected her offer in episode 23.
Misato and Kaji are fucking in instrumentality forever now.
>Implying Shinji won't just becom Kaji
It goes far beyond not telling the individual characters the story. In the middle third of the show, characters have entire conversations alone around the topics critical to the show, but when one starts to bring up a critical piece, another character stops them, even though both of them know the situation and the stakes. This happens multiple times, and only makes sense if you're writing it as if the characters knew an audience is watching them.
Hell, as I stated in my spoiler, the entire reason for Haruka and Ayato to have conflict is contrived, because somebody could just say
why he was part Mu. There was no reason Haruka was the only person who could tell him: his father could just say that he was an experiment over here without bringing up Haruka.Ayato would have never lost trust in Haruka, and then half the show filled with will-he-or-won't-he shit wouldn't have happened.
shut up and fuck off with your shit taste. They both deserve happiness and she deserved to win
Sounds like your heart's been broken more than Genos' face. Get over her.
just ingore the autist and post cakes
Bit late to the party but god damn did I love this show. This was the defining moment for me. I cried like a bitch and I know I'm not the only one.
Everything was set up perfectly for this. The cityscape, the lights, the fight, the cuts between Asahina and the Dolem Ayato's fighting.
This is canon. Alto comes back and Sheryl wakes up from the movies. They then make lots and lots of love together.
At the end of the movie Macross Frontier: Sayonara no Tsubasa . After the credits you see Sheryl and Ranka performing and at the end you see a shooting star headed for the planet which contains Alto coming back. Kawamori confirmed it.
>last five or six years
Best get those rose-colored glasses checked. You could hardly get a good NGE discussion going before 2010. If it wasn't shitposted to death
completely justified, because NGE isn't nearly as good as people think it is, it was basically waifu wars. Frankly, I'm surprised that there are so many people shitposter:fan ratio is so low these days. Must be reddit and tumblr newfags.
I love that pair... but will it really happen?
After that ova/chapter it went back to the usual Hiyori-Yato and Bisha-Kazuma ships, which kinda sucks to be honest because I dislike the beta asskisser that Kazuma is.
>I can't even remember the title right now
>nothing better than Eva
>contributed nothing original.
They fucked in that temple. I regard that as the closest thing to winning considering that the manga is never coming back.
