It goes well with water.
The toast represents the character's heart.
Toast with jam represents a muddled passion.
But srs. It's just an accessory to the classic "school comedy/school romantic comedy" character they are portraying her as just then. Just an ordinary girl, late to school, grabs the toast running out the door, and in her haste, runs into shinji, and you know, reacts like a typical Japanese school girl of her age, down to freaking out over whether he saw her panties.
It's also funny because the character we saw is wildly different from the flat affect Rei we know. The rollicking, AWW SHUCKS country music also signals that as a comedic scene.
I.E. "That's the joke".
It's supposed to be funny asshole.
Stop right there criminal scum!
Running with toast was made popular with Sailor Moon. NGE has a lot of ties to Sailor Moon. For example: Rei was named after after Sailor Mars, Misato was the voice of Sailor Moon, etc.
Breakfast of champs.
Your eyes are broken
It represents the budget of the last episode.
Momoka is the best anime protagonist.
How can anyone like toast? It tastes like nothing, it's floppy when untoasted, dry when toasted.
Get some real bread.
I love you
They're portraying Rei as a ditzy teenage girl, same with her 'moe' behavior and dumb lines.
She has toast in her mouth because she's a dumb kid who woke up late and didn't have time to eat.
Makes me think I saw for the first time this toast thing in one of Kebero's doujins.
Translation fucking never, I still fap to his stuff even nowadays, probably my favorite Eva doujins along with Kawaraya's[/spoiler
Well shit, no arguing with that.
God damn, this is just the right answer. Perfectly phrased.
>no one posted this yet
I'm disappointed, /a/
it's over now
it's time for me to leave
That was damn good, anon.

SAME AS IT EVER WAS. SAME AS IT EVER WAS.
Well,"...to dream of toast suggests that you are considering (or already involved in) a romantic situation which could cause you serious embarrassment – think twice about what you’re up to." But she is running with the toast, so she is gonna find her true love or something?
What the fuck are you trying to pull asshole? If you're going to go to all that trouble you could at least have the common fucking decency to make some actual goddamn toast. That shit is barely even warm.
You have just singlehandedly changed my entire perspective of evangelion and slice of life anime.
slice of life is an anime genre
slice of toast is a slice of bread that was toasted
slice of life <-> slice of toast
similarity of two terms and the fact that slice of toast is a known cliche in slice of life anime results in comedy
This one's for posterity.
I don't ever want this thread to die.
It's such a historical moment for /a/.
Give up, it's impossible to create the perfect toast.
>Rei is the best thing since sliced bread
>She's the show's bread and butter
>NERV sure knows how to separate the wheat from the chaff
>Anno has only ever given us bread and circuses
Isn't the perfect toast still worth striving for though, red man?
Slice of life shows often feature scenes where a female student is running to school with a SLICE of bread in her mouth becase she is late and doesn't have enough time for breakfast. It's a silly pun that is also pretty clever.
Now fuck off and watch more anime.
Mother of god, It's finally been cracked.
Today I visited /a/ for the first time in years, and I was not disappointed.
That works on, like 3 different levels mang.
What happens when the loaf runs out then?
Daily reminder that anime of today doesn't like toast.
he wouldn't, he just keeps pushing people away from him and pretends nobody likes him.
Isn't Mari the lovechild of Asuka and Shinji?
Shinji can't handle the repercussions of sex, he's a faggot.
>implying he doesn't get kaworu to shave his pubes for him
This faggot's on a cocksucking rampage, man the harpoons.
Deepest lore once again confirmed, as expected by the master
Might be a good idea actually
That's not the problem here you fucking idiot. You're never going to learn not to be a faggot if you write off every negative response you get as some arbitrary mentality that you find to be trivial.
>Yakitate Japan is the deepest anime ever made
Well done anon.
over 20 years later and we're still on this ride goddammit Anno
It means she's not eating a proper japanese breakfast
fuck me how did this get so autistic
is a good joke but jesus christ at this point you faggots are just responding to be part of the screencap which will inevitably happen so you can show all your friends you were part of the "ebin 4ch/a/n bread"
This is going to be used in every thread that ever has toast in mouth ever again
Elegant screen cap that approximately captures the magnitude of replies. Enjoy,
