Why do you pilot the Eva, /a/?
>>
But I don't ???
>>
Because it's cool
>>
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
>>
>>137306027
Wouldn't appeal to the demographic of losers.
>>
>>137306027
That would be fucking shit.
>>
>>137306027
You mean generic mecha scenario number 5415165164954466?
>>
>>137306027

>>
It would be >>137306107
But what about combining the two into a Shinji who is cocky and confident that's still useless and cries all the time, it's just he's too much of a sad jerk to get any better.
>>
>>137306112
>>137306107
>>137306142
>>137306080
Did you miss the part where I said he still fucks up?
It's the same Shinji only instead of being whiny he puts on a cocky facade
>>
Nobody cared about who I was until I got in the fucking robot.
>>
>>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.
>>
>>137306027
I doubt they could have done that whole hedgehogs dilemma with Shinji that way.

I'd pilot it only to get this look from Asuka.
>>
>>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
>>
>>137306346
Wouldn't be that bad.
But I like his downer personality, it's what set the tone of the series for me.
>>
I enjoy the killing. Sadly I suck at it, but I try my best.

What if Shinji was Kaiba?

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

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.

If I pull that off, would you die?
>>
>>137308150
No that was different
It was more along the lines of
>yeah, I don't wanna pilot the Eva, but you need me so I'll do it for you
And then Misato called his bluff and he almost left

How can 1 meme be so versatile?

>>137309176
It would be extremely painful.

>>137306346
>he's a fuck up but he tries to convince everyone he's great
so he would be Asuka?

And he keeps giving her passive-aggression until Jet Alone, switching to a new target shortly after. Shinji cracked on folks.
>>
>>137309874
Slightly different
Asuka actually believes she's great
This Shinji would know he's crap
>>
>>137309961
>This Shinji would know he's crap
Drop the thought already...
You're the only one who thinks it's interesting.
>>
>>137305322
For reis asshole.

>>137306027
I would like to see this version but I understand that shinjis reaction to piloting the EVA was the most realistic.
>>
>>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.
>>
>>137310413
But they'd still do it the first time
Besides Shinji would have needed therapy even before that
>>
>>137310453
>But they'd still do it the first time
Shinji didn't hesitate an awful lot the first time either.
>>
>>137310498
Yeah he did
He had to see that Rei was being forced to do it even if she couldn't rise from her bed and he moved Eva 1's arm before agreeing
>>
>>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 would get stomped into the ground their first time, just like shinji did.
>>
>>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
>>
>>137306305
Pretty much this. If only.
>>
>>137311399
You want to disgust her? That shouldn't be difficult
>>
>>137311960
I don't know anon. I'm stuck in a reality far removed from the Evaverse and there's not a day I don't regret it.
>>
>>137306593
Asuka would have the best bantz. Don't push the poor girl too hard though.
>>
>>137313180
>hey asuka where'd you put the kitchen knife?
>are you still mad at me for the whole mom joke? How the fuck was I supposed to know?
>a...asuka?
>>
>>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?
>>
>>137305322
What are you? A filthy adult?
Robots are cool, they make big kabuums! thats why!
>>
>>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.
>>
>>137310269
An average 14 year old loves the abstract concept of piloting a robot, but the vast majority wouldn't love the actual thing.
>>
>>137314660
This is perfect
>>
>>137306305
what happened to her eye?
>>
>>137316300
Shinji jizzed in it
>>
>>137316300
when shinji masturbated to her, he missed his hand and got some of it in her eye
