>there are people in this board whostill think than Asuka>Rei
No one does, faggots just pretend to like her and Kirino for trolling.
Oh, yeah. Almost forgot about her.
>implying they don't smell like roses
I've been waiting to post this for ages...
>censored so I don't get banned...
Banter aside, I completely understand that people think Asuka > Rei.
Rebuild especially is giving them every reason to. Just compare the two:
qt, well-meaning but also a mom-clone who's biggest accomplishment is planning a dinner party. Doesn't use a lot of EVA weaponry. Currently a big fat nothing.
qt, tsundere half-angel girl that goes to space, uses lots of EVA weaponry, gets into the action and is implied to be some sort of a mercenary by the staff. Currently still alive and kicking ass.
>good to anyone
I won't even lose my time arguing with you.
>She practically has him wrapped around her.
Inb4 public ban
>superior to anyone
It's been shitty but it's better for some than others.
You don't get any good characters out of it, but you get some really solid "light" characters that's eaten up by the fans.
In the case of the Rei, you get a mockery-object whose only purpose as of now seems to be as an insult towards the original Rei character.
Anyway it's completely understandable that people think Asuka > Rei when you take into account Rebuild and probably other things as well.

I understand you feel empathy for her, hell I love my favourite T-shirt
But you shouldn't treat "things" as if they were human, you will just confuse them.
I watched Evangelion for the first time this year, it was amazing. Since it's practical for the latest victory, Asuka is the best girl for now.
Nah. She's brilliant, academically incredible, physically fit, aware of her goals, and resilient to quite a lot - even if she breaks by the end.
I'm not commenting on a Shinji Asuka pairing or anything, I just find her much more attractive.
Rei is also nice, you certainly want some rei in your life, but she's too protective. There's something unappealing about a character that'd self immolate for you.
She's the worst pilot of them all.
Remember when she starved herself?
She's also the character with the weakest psyche in the entire show.
It's not bullying when you're actually telling the truth.
I get it though, Reifags self-identify with an autistic robot so it would make sense for them to have one as a waifu.
>There's something unappealing about a character that'd self immolate for you.
As opposed to a character that would die for no good reason, such as Asuka?
Eh, you gotta be practical. "Waifu" things aside, Rei is just more able than Asuka, an arguably more interesting if you want to converse about anything beyond boys in the classroom.
Rei a shit.
>She's the worst pilot of them all.
That would be miss suicide bomber.
>Remember when she starved herself?
Remeber when Rei started falling apart, was infertile and had to take drugs every day to survive?
>She's also the character with the weakest psyche in the entire show.
That's Misato actually
>taking moot as an exemple
And now he has Asuna from SAO as his waifu.
She deteriorates, but she isn't the worst from the get-go, she just didn't have the strength to hold out.
Yeah, I quite liked that.
I also think she put up with the most. Don't forget that Rei is dead.
Asuka is a teenage girl, and not completely distanced from society. I think she's much more capable socially, and probably in most situations.
You see, there we fundamentally disagree. I just don't see Rei as being interesting at all. She's the embodiment of the comfortable ideal, maternal, exclusive to yourself, stoic and self sacrificial. She isn't a person.
Mari=Assuka>PenPen>Prez>Other girls from Evangelion>Girls in the grocery store>Rei
I find it hilarious that it's pretty much guaranteed to happen in any Asuka thread. I'm not sure if it's because the other Asukafags self insert as Shinji, or like me, think he's as attractive as Asuka is
>Asuka is a teenage girl, and not completely distanced from society. I think she's much more capable socially, and probably in most situations.
The series made it clear that she isn't capable, as the contact she makes is merely skin-deep and if any problems occur, she'll be broken easily.
Rei's distance from society is only as far as she's put from it. The important thing in a person is it's ability to grow, which Rei has in spades, but Asuka doesn't.
>You see, there we fundamentally disagree. I just don't see Rei as being interesting at all. She's the embodiment of the comfortable ideal, maternal, exclusive to yourself, stoic and self sacrificial. She isn't a person.
Well let's take Asuka for a spin using the same negative representative ideals - she's a nubile sex-toy, an embodiment of a vulnerable, exclusive-to-yourself teenage sex-toy you don't need to understand since she's so desperate. She isn't a person.
>She deteriorates, but she isn't the worst from the get-go, she just didn't have the strength to hold out.
Doesn't that make her the worst though? She has no strength.
She's the least resilient by far - it's your capability for "holding out", and Asuka doesn't have the strength for that.
Taking Rei's case, you say she's dead, but you also have to consider why she died.
If she didn't die, Asuka and Shinji, everyone else would also die. It was a "her+everyone" or "just her"-situation. Being steady enough to make that cold call is something in itself.
Y'know, it's a little of column A, a little of column B
>That would be miss suicide bomber.
Nope. Why else would Asuka have had that downward spiral? Because she knew she was worse than both Shinji and Rei when she wanted to be better than them. It's a pride thing, and it was wounded badly.
>Remeber when Rei started falling apart, was infertile and had to take drugs every day to survive?
Actually, no. When?
>That's Misato actually
I don't recall Misato slitting her wrists and sitting a bathtub for weeks. ,She was the one to bounce back and keep her problems from interfering with her job. She was actually the character that was the best at covering up and pushing down her own issues.
Is the stereotype that Asukafags hate Shinji for not "manning up" and winning their waifu true at all? Is that like a Western fan thing? Because most Asukafags I see on /a/ seem to be Shinjifags too.
The difference between the characters is that Rei has a positive development, whilst Asuka's is negative.
I think it's safe to say that Rei has seen some heavy shit and is dulled by that, and Asuka is more "in the moment" about herself and the way she does things.
>LASfags STILL think that Asuka "won" Shinji in anime, manga and Rebuilds
>LASfags STILL think RETAKE is canon
>yfw Asuka was a side dish to Shinji
>yfw Kaworu and Rei were more important to him
I'm just saying that Rei is a completely distinct being from Yui that existed before Yui did (albeit as Lilith) and that while she looks like Yui, she has no familial bond to Shinji. Though I suppose Shinji might feel differently, who knows.
Most vocal asukafags on /a/ are also bi for Shinji, so i don't think it's a great representative sample of the whole. Even then, it's probably overstated
Only the casual asukafags who don't understand her character
>A soulless clone or a massive bitch
I chose the only somewhat normal girl
The 3.0 Asuka design was the single greatest thing to ever come out of the Rebuilds.
>Reifags still can't appreciate the joys of having a snowman waifu
And thank god we don't get many of their kind here. Their wiki isn't too bad, and their autistic use of screencapping is good for catching little details you'd otherwise miss, but their forums are just horrible.
I sure know I am. Screw angel boy, Shinji is best boy.
watch the best anime movie of all time again
this doesn't mean he doesn't also care for asuka though
Mari is sort of like Kaworu in Angelic Days.
I'm always astounded when Asukafags say Rei is an emotionless doll. Did they watch another show? It would explain a lot of things, if there were 2 versions of the show, each with completely different characters.
Are they so superficial that they judge the person by their words alone? Are they blind to what is actually happening in the show? Are they masochists because they want this damaged Asuka instead of any other girl in the show?
>not banging him too
Remember when Instrumentality started and Shinji wouldn't open his heart to Giant Naked Rei and become the Tree of Life? And Giant Naked Rei temporarily had to shape-shift into Giant Naked Kaworu to
>fantasized about yourself being in Eva alongside Shinji, banging
That would be GAY dude!
>i-it's just bait guise
>not even the creator of evangelion can come up with an answer
First day of snow, Reifags will be making threads of going outside and rolling in the snow because they're rolling in Rei, and they'll make Reimen and put blue wigs on them and they'll make Rei Angels and come up with soppy poetry about how Rei is an Angel and they'll make Reiforts and sleep in there because then they get to be inside of Rei.
we've been over this time & time again, it's not gay if he's dressed like a girl
>liking one more thanthe other
>having a waifu from eva
He called the series Evangelion because it looked complicated and had something to do with Christianity. Then the rebuilds happened. Are we really going to care about his opinion?
So what? Are you implying that you can't love someone if she doesn't love you back?
>and had something to do with Christianity.
The translation actually has something to do with the Eva units/Adam
It's a lost cause. She'll just find someone else and you'd be left to suffer.
If the cast of ANY series ever needed life-correction...
