Sometimes I wonder if Eva would have been better with a more cocky and confident Shinji >so this "Eva" is 3 years of birthday presents in 1 package huh? >I gotta say, I'm disappointed dad, you can't even remember your son's birthday >but, I was never one to turn down a gift >sure, I'll take this baby out for a spin And then Shinji procedes to fuck up and survive only because of berserk mode anyway
>>137306203 It would still be shit and it wouldn't be the "same" Shinji because to put on a cocky facade would completely destroy and change his original personality. You know like in that scene in the original Ep25/26 where he seems himself in an alternate possibility where he's any other normally adjusted teenage boy like Toji or Kensuke, and he's all cocky and hollering at Misato? It would completely defeat the purpose of the Shinji character. If you don't like that he's "whiny", go watch DBZ.
>>137306269 >>137306274 What I mean is similar to >>137306190, he's a fuck up but he tries to convince everyone he's great For example >be careful Shinji, last time you almost died >what, the eye and the arm thing? That was nothing, that was just trying to lull the angel into a false sense of superiority before I destroyed it >it reeeally didn't look like that Shinji >oh nononono, trust everything went according to plan Shinji KNOWS he's incompetent but he tries to make friends by being the cool, shonen protag guy Ep 25/26 are just Shinji accepting his actual abilities and realizing people like him even if he doesn't try to be something he's not
>>137306430 I'd love the banter with Asuka Can you imagine the taunting? >what do you think of Eva unit 2 third child? >I guess it looks good, my Eva's red too sometimes, that's after I kill angels though, but you wouldn't know anything about that would you know? >I dunno third child, if you're so good why did they call me to help you >so I can show how it's done of course >oh please >well how many angels have you killed Asuka? >there's no need to, angels are too scared to even come near me >or maybe they'd feel bad about showing you up in front of everyone, or they just actually want a challenge
>>137306346 He had some of that early on. Mostly jabs at Misato. He used sarcasm to appear like he was objecting while still giving up control and doing what he was told. It was the first defense layer to get peeled off him.
>>137310113 No it's not An average 14 year old would love to pilot the giant robot and beat the fuck out of the giant monster I identified the most with Kensuke because of this Also this is why Mari is best girl Also her tits but she loves piloting it so much
>>137310269 >An average 14 year old would love to pilot the giant robot and beat the fuck out of the giant monster An average 14 year old wouldn't sleep for a week straight after pic related and would probably need therapy for the rest of his life.
>>137310663 But they'd still do it without considering the consequences because if a 14yo's dad told them to get in the giant robot and beat up the evil monster they'd get in super excited and then fuck up and die I still remember watching it for the first time >holy fuck shut up and get in the robot you wuss >oh fuck he fell >oh shit that must have hurt >well fuck, that was unexpected Eva was good because you except the unwilling hero to build up confidence because "he's a natural" and after wrecking the first big bad, you do not expect him to his shit kicked in and get saved by a literal deus ex machina
>>137313180 Yeah the moving in banter >wow Asuka, you're moving in already? I didn't know I was this charming, but it's ok if you can't stand to be away from me baby >don't flatter yourself, I'm not joining you, I'm replacing you >you, what? That can't be right >>137313413 >oh, that's cute, you're holding it like you do in the eva >m-my mom's dead too, w-we can joke about that huh? >MISATO HELP! PEN PEN? ANYONE?
>>137313575 >hey... Asuka. I heard you were finally awake. You feeling better? >... >I know you probably don't want to talk to me right now. I uh... Brought you a card. Everybody signed it. They... Told everybody it was appendicitis, not... You know. >go away. >I uh...it's been a tough couple of weeks, for everybody. >go away. >I uh... Okay. Before I go, we got rid of those carpets you hated, cause of all the blood. >... >like I know you wanted to get rid of them but this is a bit drastic don't you think? >... >are you smiling? >n...no! >you ARE smiling! Get well soon, okay? We need you out there. I... Need you out there.
