Why did it not turn out this way? Those two are literally made for each other.
>>
>the hero has a happy ending
Anno hates that kind of stuff
>>
Anno is so far removed from the concept of happiness that he couldn't write a happy ending even if he set out to do so, not that he ever would.
>>
>>136328634
They aren't, though.
>>
>>136328634
I mean you kind of forget it when you're watching the show but they're extremely mentally unstable 14 year olds.
They're not perfect for each other at all, maybe for 8 months of consistent fucking followed by another 5 or so of on and off fighting before reconciling as friends in their early 20s.
Have a think back to your own teenage life anon

>>136328634
Asuka is shit, Rei is just some alien and Misato has daddy issues but is still the best girl.

Asuka and Shinji shippers are fucking delusional as always. Shinji basically choked her in his trippy sequences because he can't deal with her bullshit and she can't deal with his bullshit either.

It did turn out that way.

I just can't get over how cute it is that he's shorter than she is.

Made more special by the fact that fans almost always draw him taller, meaning that very few people actually bothered to notice.

What does it have to do with anything? Shinji and Asuka never understood each other until the very end, and in the TV version it was about themselfs, not them as a pair.
>>
>>136330119
Dude literally no one really understood each other until the end. That's kind of the point of the show.

Doesn't mean they couldn't move beyond those differences. It's what Misato and Kaji did in the later half.
>>
>>136330151
>Doesn't mean they couldn't move beyond those differences
If you watched the show you'd realize that they are a complete lost cause as a pairing.
>>
>>136330151
Do you really think Shinji and Asuka would enter a relationship after all that happened? in EoE he basically choked her again and she called it/him/whatever "disgusting".

They don't hate each other but they'll never truly understand each either, which is also a point of the show; people will never truly understand each other, but they still can live on. Doesn't mean they'll end up fucking all day, unless they're using it as a coping method, not because they're in a healthy relationship.

A lot of people watch the show who ship ASL/Asushin.
>>
>>136328634
Asuka needed someone with the patience and guts to put up with her shrill harpy bullshit

Shinji needed a nurturer to build up his fragile egghshell of an ego

How were they made for each other?
>>
>>136329991
That's one of the points about Eva that irritate me the most. I almost screamed it during EoE.

>Shinji: "Why don't you try being nice to me?"
>3 girls: "But we are nice to you."
No my little girls, only Misato was nice to Shinji. Asuka was a damn contradictory bitch ("you don't try to understand me even though I'm not reaching out to you" "how could you ever understand me, you've never tried") and Rei, well, was a little too focused on the father.
>>
>>136330232
Listening to them it's clearly more about what they want than what the show was trying to do. Typical shippers.

A lot of them have different interpretations of what the show was 'trying to do' than you, center of the world-kun.

>>136330274
cause asuka was h0t and i like to project myself onto shinji
>>
>>136330277
Rei only treated Shinji badly in the beginning, it was one of the points of Rei's development that she (probably) felt in love with Shinji. Asuka on the other hand was either tsun or just a complete bitch, even if she liked him (in the director's cut).
Misato always treated him well and tried to be a parental figure, but she almost literally fucked up.

If it's shipping related it's pretty much nothing but fanfiction rubbish.

Shinji and Kaworu may get a free pass.
>>
>>136330297
You realize that Shinji tried to help and understand Asuka some times in the show, right? after Arael mind rape he tried to reach her with legit good intentions but she still rejected him. Before that she also reject him a bunch of times. Not only with Shinji, but she also rejected Hikari's good intentions, and she was supposed to be Hikari's good friend.
Asuka basically rejects everyone, she's not mentally apt to have mutual understanding with anyone.

I get she's your waifu and you love her, but don't deny her flaws and try to make your shipping fantasies real. No shipping shit in Eva becomes canon in the end, only Shinji/Tang.
>>
In hindsight, I think Asuka was more messed up than Shinji. Shinji would have probably been something resembling okay if he lived in a regular world where human lives didn't depend on his performance and he wasn't isolated from everyone else because of that. Maybe he wouldn't be super happy, but he'd have an uneventful life without the looming threat of a complete breakdown.

Asuka, though, there are people who are loud, rude, obnoxious psychos that are desperate to justify their own existence in real life, and they are all sloppy hot messes.
>>
>>136330568
She locked herself into solitude just like Shinji did, and she at least tried to stick with it, rejecting people instead of becoming a whining puppy desperate for affection. Of course it's not so easy and some sort of relationship developed between them as it always happens with time. Won't say it's romantic, but I can't blame people who do. Teens tend to interpret any relationship as love.
>>
Don't Shinj and Ask get together in the manga?
>>
>>136330621
Shinji and Asuka suffer from the same issues, but come at it from two different directions. Asuka pushes others away, while Shinji moves away from others himself. In the real world, Shinji would just end up a spineless Salaryman who goes straight home afterwork and does fuck all all day. Asuka would probably be able to excel to at least some extent just from the fact that extroversion is seen in a better light, but her interpersonal relationships would be shit, and she'd likewise end up alone at home.
>>
>>136330764

Also remember that Asuka is supposed to be a child prodigy, whereas Shinji is just a mediocre average kid with anxiety.
>>
>>136328634
because both of them were raised by single parents
>>
>>136330621
Shinji was having positive development in the until Bardiel's episode. Then his depression really started to kick in ever harder and to be fair, after that he never got a fucking break from anything.

Asuka on the other hand always had negative development, she started as confident and strong teenage girl but that was only a mask and it was breaking more and more as the show was going on. She was always loud, messy and obnoxious but when shit started hitting the fan with her (even small things earlier episodes, hurting her pride) she'd isolate herself and reject everyone.

It has always bugged me that despite having genius-tier parents Shinji is commonly treated/portrayed as being rather unintelligent or at least average

Asuka's an academic prodigy, it matters less to her than the thing she trained years for and Shinji achieved in minutes.
