GENDO WAS RIGHT
>>
>>110799239
He was always inherently kind of a dick and had difficulties with people much like Shinji, but he really sealed himself off emotionally after Yui died. If anything, Shinji is a pretty close reflection of what a younger Gendo would have been.

When he got those sick ass new visors in 3.0.

Sucks that he's going blind....OR IS HE??????
>>
>>110799239
Rebuild. NGE Gendo is not evil, but a bad ending for a grown up Shinji.
>>
>>110799613
I wonder if something happened to him over the course of the 15 year time skip if he's wearing those cyborg shade implants. Or they're just there to notify the audience that Gendo has simply overthrown and overtaken seele's role as the end-game baddie?
>>
>>110800049
who cares, the rebuilds are nobrain cashcows much like Godzilla and Transformers
>>
>>110799824
This theory still continues, it's obvious that Rebuild won't ever touch that matter after 3.0
>>
Why did 3.0 utterly destroy the Rebuild series?
>>
>>110800290
It was already shit in 2.22. 3.33 made it worse because it was made for fujoshis and faggots.
>>
>>110800318
but 2.22 was the best rebuild
>>
>>110800345
Kaji just cannot speak English.
>>
>>110800345
2.22 was the best rebuild - for waifufaggots and otakus.

The only decent Rebuild was 1.11 and that's only because it followed the original's tone and atmosphere so well.
>>
>>110800318
>>110800451
2.22 was good. It also followed the original series quite closely, but at the end hinted that the series could diverge slightly to give the fans something new instead of a retread of the original series.
Well 3.33 certainly did that I guess...

And I know Mari was shit but it could have been a lead in for something in 3.33.
Instead, Asuka could have completely filled in for Mari in 3.33 and the movie would have been no different.

I'd rather watch a new story than the same thing with new animation

According to the manga, ever since Shinji was born.

Is it possible to be named Shinji and not be a bitch?
Is this some linguistic joke I'm missing? What characters is it written with?

I would agree but also add
>Impossibly bad luck ensures consequences for all actions

He's an amoral sociopath.

He's not malicious, he just genuinely doesn't give a shit about anything but himself and his wife. He doesn't abuse children and plot against the world to be a dick, it's just that it's the most efficient means to his end; their suffering is neither a positive nor a negative for him, it's perfectly irrelevant. If rescuing puppies would bring his wife back and make her love only him, he'd do that instead, and honestly wouldn't see a difference between the methods.
>>
Why is Gendo the best character on the show?

I want 4.0 to be him and Fuyutski hiking with that donkey.
>>
>>110800974
Anno is the best of all of us.

You can be a huge asshole instead.
>>
>>110799824
I wouldn't say he's entirely evil in Rebuild, but his mind has been so warped by his plans and determination to revive Yui that he's become a lost cause.

Then again Rebuild kind of implies that Yui and maybe even Fuyutsuki are "evil" as well and that they're all in on it together with some big plan, since Gendo was purposefully aware of Yui's initiative to merge with unit 01 and Fuyutsuki has been brainwashing Shinji from time-to-time at NERV.

A sociopath wouldn't give a shit about other people or love period.
Unless if Yui was also a sociopath or someone predisposed to sociopathic traits. Then it makes slightly more sense.

Gendo sounds like a jealous *sibling* rather than any kind of fazha.

He wanted them to acknowledge a fear of death and tell him to stop. He didn't quite know it himself but ultimately he was waiting for that.

Also that bar is clearly modern accel, not pre-sisters arc accel
