How in anyway possible is this boy weak?
eh, a lot of people have issues, Auska saw her mom hang herself, before that she was crazy and wouldn't accept her.
Auska turned out shitty too but not a giant pussy.
The problem with him was wanting to stay in his depressed comfort zone and for people to validate it. He wouldnt help Misato when she was there trying to help him over and over again. She bent over backwards for shinji.
Shinji had a problem of only seeing his pain and not conforting others.
His problem was he takes and takes and takes, kind of like a some homeless person for change. They take the change but instead of saving it and get back in to society they spend it on more drugs and alcohol and have no intention of being part of society. That's what Shinji does with his problems, even the eva was trying to help him and all he could do is say it sucks, it's hard. He sucks away people's emotions but when they snap he doesn't help them, he feels he cant. Shinji got a raw deal for sure, but at least he had people there for him. Just pump the kid with prozac and throw him in the damn robot already!
Except the only people around Shinji are even more messed up than him.
Misato never had a proper childhood and so gets drunk and tries to live vicariously through him when she's not ordering him to risk his life in the giant death machine that it's made very clear he is absolutely terrified of.
Asuka is a mental wreck who is lashes out and pushes people away and only judges her self-worth by her Eva pilot training, but in the real world battles, Shinji is better at it than her.
Then he has the ice queen Rei, who never does anything she's not ordered to do until the very end.
His father most certainly doesn't want him to get better. Gendo's whole gambit is to keep Shinji mentally wrecked so that he will initiate Third Impact.
How come Rin could revive Shirou by replacing his Gay Bulged heart with a new one made on the spot but the only way to heal this girl's legs is to win a fucking Holy Grail War?
They have many competent magi in their faction, they even have a humunculus factory and a Caster servant among their ranks, but are we expected to believe somehow they can't make her a new pair of legs?
Since when does healing magic destroy magic circuits?
Again, we've seen a more complex healing feat in the original Fate and it was done by a fucking teenager that didn't even specialize in healing magic.
Kotomine also presumably opened up every inch of Sakura's body to remove the worms and then healed her, yet she didn't lose her magic circuits.
this is the best anime ever made
You've summoned Mordred!
What is your first course of action?
>beat fubuki in a gaming competition

What do you want her to do for you, /a/?
Would you look at the time, it's rape o'clock.
Would you raise a good daughter of Mafuyu?
God, what the FUCK Shinobu.
Did you enjoy it?

Find a girl more based than Lum.

Ok decided to rewatch DBZ because I watched it as a kid and don't remember shit. Already watched DB not too long ago so I am good on that.
So Do I was DBZ or DBZ Kai? Which one will give me the proper experience? Sub or Dub?
