What's wrong with you, anon?
>mfw I realized Kaji had been trying to set Asuka up with Shinji to get her to stop being creepy at him
Misato is a whore, though.
I think Asuka is nice. Rei isn't much of a human being anyways.
>choosing between an emotionless doll or a bitch
Why are you spamming ugly gaudy pictures not from the original show?
Asuka would hate your even, you know.
>not wanting to be the plowed boipussy
What a faggot.
rebuild of eva was really awful.
Fuck, even the original series wasn't that great. I still found myself very drawn to Asuka despite the fact.
asuka has the most complex personality in the show
>thinking rei would be ashamed
She doesn't understand human interaction, she wouldn't be embarrassed.
This point is stressed during the towel scene with Shinji, where he's freaking out over her nudity and she doesn't care.
>not C. Ikari
>not FUCKING SHINJI
>not best girl
Did you even watch the show?
several times yes, pay more attention to asuka
There are people on this board who actually don't think Asuka is best girl.
Ponder that for a bit.
Shinji's is more complex. He's likely autistic, he has abandonment issues, he has an Oedipus complex, he's dependent on others for emotional support, he's suicidal, etc.
life is meaningless and I have no reason not to post asuka
Asuka tbqh my famalamadingo
yea that's the whole point of the show, struggling with depression and neglect
the whole thing is sort of an allegory to depression in general (You can see numerous references to freudian and jungian psychology in the show, especially the Oedipus/electra complex)
the most important part, third impact and the human instrumentality project is equatable to suicide, or at least giving up on life in some way.
rejecting it is analogous to shinji's acceptance of the world as it is, despite the realization that one can never truly understand another person (the whole AT field bit), and that an individual must accept their place in the world, realizing that he will always be fundamentally alone and trapped in his own consciousness.
As such he will experience suffering due to this disconnect, but he decides his individuality and existence is more important than alleviating suffering. Him gaining the will to live is what triggers the 'congrats' bit in NGE, and the death of lilith-rei in EoE.
that's the general idea
Asuka has a simple to understand personality.
>Neglected as child
>"waah, I'm gonna be a Stacy"
>"oh no, ppl found out I'm not rly a Stacy, waah"
meant to quote >>25926757
depression is never simple and no one is as depressed as asuka in that show
She's definitely a wannabe slut.
If there were any morally relaxed older men in NERV she would've let them bend her over a desk in a second.
I do, but I empathize more with asuka tbqh senpai
shinji doesn't seem as clearly depressed as her to me
I guess you could say Asuka is depressed.
I personally see it as her masking her weakness in her skills, that's why she fell apart as a pilot when Shinji naturally got better. Her case of depression is more like one of neglect. Her mother abandoned her and ignored her, scarring her forever, making her into the over confident bitch we know at the beginning of Asuka Attacks!
Still a good character. Just not the worst when it comes to depression.
can someone give me some words of encouragement
this is a lot of work
Maya is one of the technicians in the original series
come on now
we're talking about shinji here, he is the physical embodiment of depression
you aren't going to tell me rei is more depressed than asuka are you
I'm feeling a little confused now tbqh
work is graduate student, inb4 reeeeee
I have given up on 3d because I'm not really human it seems
not wanting to smash this boipussy
come to think of it, shinji does seem more depressed
the whole idea of the show is dealing with shinji's depression
see this post >>25926776
asuka's depression sort of mirrors shinji's, although shinji expresses it as an inferiority complex while asuka expresses as a superiority complex. Their issues are VERY similar, so it can be assumed that they're probably just about equally depressed.
however, the show focuses on shinji's depression much more
Lol no, she's a case of identify. But that's a different story.
Shinji is the case of depression and isolationism. He seeks to do whatever he is asked whether or not he wants to. He's in short, a depressed pushover.
From the rebuilds.
It's the show up unto the S2 fiasco that takes a turn for the worst.
applied math, I barely ever interact with other humans
don't lol no me you fucking bitch
I'll have you know I'm a seal
Anybody got any arty farty Asuka's to share?
What are you confused about? He hates himself, he wants to die (but is too afraid to actually go through with it), has parental issues, an Oedipus complex, nervous tics, and is so emotionally damaged that he can't even seem to do anything about it. He fucking masturbated to a comatose Asuka. Little kids laughed at him for being a loser on the bus. His own father replaced him with an autistic doll when he was a child, and he blames himself. And then, said father has the fucking NERV (hehe) to tell him that HE is the one running away? I mean, Jesus H. Christ, how can anyone be confused as to Shinji being the most depressed and fucked up character in the show?
Are there any recommended essays pr writings to read on Evangelion?
I recognized some of the Freudian shit and obviously it was filled with Christian imagery, but I feel like I may have partially been unappreciative of it because I don't understand very much about religion or psychology.
Assuming rei is just a repressed abandoned child and not a clone, i would like her more than asuka.
I would like to bring her out of her shell.
Asuka will always be a belligerent cunt, even if she does grow to like you.
I'm a little busy posting asukas if that's not clear
Yeah, I probably REEEEE'd a bit too hard there.
this thsi this this this this thsi this
You an the wikipedia page say this, but can you explain further?
The only example of it I can bring to mind is when he tells Rei that she looks like a mother, and that he has a boner for her of course.
But you won't be able to get along with someone of the same personality
She's not repressed or hiding anything, she just missed out on cognitive development and therefor has no personality.
Pretty sure that's what the show was going for, at least. I have no idea if that's how actual humans behave.
theres a reason we have stalked her for almost a decade
Well, that he has a boner for Rei while she is a partial clone of his mother, the whole thing there with her reminding him of a mom ("I bet you'd make a great mom/housewife, Rei", how the fuck did he think that wasn't an autistic line?), those are the two big ones. But also, when he is trapped in the Eva, he and his mother embrace naked. And, of course, his ambiguous relationship with Misato (who sexualizes their relationship while taking on the mother's role).
there's plenty of interpretations out there, just a google search away, but anno has stated that the religious stuff is there for show (although I think it proves to be quite relevant to the real themes of eva, which are mostly psychological).
so certain religious imagery and ideas might be completely irrelevant to the central ideas, but they might also have some relevance if you don't take anno at his word (one of the ideas of eva is the importance of self-realization and self-interpretation, so he might be apposed to apply an objective meaning to it, remember the scene in 25 or 26 where he creates the universe of nothing.)
Asuka is best girl because Rei has as much personality as a melon
how on earth is that piece of wood smart?
I see, have one of my favorite asukas
perhaps it is because we have nothing better to do with our time
Well I think we can tell who Hideaki thinks is best girl
it has distracted me at least
tomorrow I'm positive I'll have a really hard time leaving bed when I wake up
in fact today I spent almost the whole day in bed
one of the often forgotten elements of the Oedipus complex is the desire for the individual to want to return to the womb. Which is essentially what he does when he's trapped in the eva, and after that he is 'reborn' from the womb of his 'mother'.
any relationship he has with Rei and eva-01 can be construed as Oedipus inspired
not to mention he wants to kill his dad, another aspect of the Oedipus complex
regardless of our purpose, we are still here. every single day
Being smart doesn't equate to knowing random shit. Asuka might have come off as smart because she knew physics and graduated early and shit, but she had no intuition at all. Rei always knew when things were off. She felt that she had been lived before. If Asuka was the one with the clones and had been brought back, she wouldn't have ever noticed anything and would have just gone on with her life like nothing ever happened.
Also, the fact that Gendo Ikari designed her means that he also modified her genetics so that her personality would be very similar to his.
Here are the types I've come up with so far:
Gendo Ikari - INTJ
Shinji Ikari - INFJ
Asuka Soryu - ESTJ
Misato - ESFP
Kaworu - ENTP
I don't think in terms of dating actually
would you be willing to upload it to mega?
Can you please upload the your entire Asuka collection on megaupload or something
because she is nothing like we have ever seen before
shinji is INFP for sure
and misato ENTP
>tfw using a script to download all these images
too bad I can't filter out the rose
the therapist stories I read here don't particularly motivate me
I agree with everything except shinji
he seems like more of an INFP to me
also I'm unsure if misato is an extrovert
I like Rei more overall. I think it's because we have more in common.
I once dreamed Asuka was choking me (not to kill, just to demonstrate power or something) once, which is weird because I'm not a particular fan of Eva and hadn't watched it in a while when it happened.
Shinji was in that dream too, he told me something like "Anon, I'm a robot too, so please don't cuck me.", I think there were girls there or something (I'm not interested in relationships/sex so I wouldn't but I assume dream-Shinji didn't know that.)
Is Shinji smart? I get the feeling he should be smarter than is implied in the show, since his parents were both brilliant. Is it just neglect of education and emotional issues holding him back?
INFPs are too selfish to care about the rest of the people around them. Shinji is not an INFP, although it may seem that way. I know this for sure because of the one episode in which he stated he wasn't going to pilot anymore, but he couldn't deal with the fact that other people would suffer as a result of his refusal to operate his Eva.
I made a typo for Misato earlier. She's definitely an ENFP. Too emotional to be an ENTP.
i wouldn't take back those words that hurt you and you would break
i know why i did the things i did
i know why i said the things i said
pride's like a knife, it can deep inside
words are like weapons, they wound everytime
spam guy here
I guess I like asuka more because shinji is too passive and that makes it hard for me to relate to him
I take an aggressive stance at life, I'm the kind of person who won't fail when the time for suicide comes
the asukafag has been talking about how he relates to her
she has a strong outward personality around people, but is actually completely unhinged/
she's not actually stacy, so he's not really chad
Nah, evageeks has
some interesting theories but they're half-assed to hell. Interesting ideas though
Asuka is literally the draw character. She looks interesting and like a qt but is a bitch. Rei is obviously better in every way. Asuka is designed to draw people in to watch the show.
Misato is alright.
