Evangelion would have been better if Asuka was the MC

Of course.
After all, Asuka is objectively the most well written character in evangelion.

It'd be shit.

Asuka is the most boring character ever.
>>
>>133392642
Why is Rei more popular?
>>
>>133392898
She's a better character.
>>
>>133392898
Because Rei is more original, well-developed and more meaningful than Asuka. They're both pretty but Rei stands out more and has a more compelling story, and has a relatively active role in the plot.

>>133392898
Shes socially retarded. Gives a majority of anime watchers someone to relate to.

wow great job.

Could work with Misato or Rei though. Those have actual stories to tell.
>>
>>133392976
Rei's story bored me to fuck. Her struggle is based around not having any sort of identity or anything to base her existence on. It's a little mind numbing to watch.

It had the potential for so much more, too, especially considering the revelation that she's a clone later on in the series

Wow good idea OP

Nah fuck off, this thread was shit when Reifags made it and it's still shit now that Asukafags made it. There's no EVA without Shinji as the MC.

Translation:

"I'm too dumb to pay attention to Evangelion, so dumb in fact that I can't even summarize a major character's struggle."

You're bored like a ADD tween is bored of good film. You're not smart or patient enough to understand or enjoy.

The Rei one was good though.

Laughably wrong.

>>133393186
Imagine forcing yourself to think Rei was a developed character to justify your choice of waifu
>>
>>133393291
Nope
>>
>>133393301
Imagine being so butthurt that Rei is superior to your waifu you force yourself to think Rei a developed character.
>>
>>133393131
The struggle of finding yourself makes for a great story. You can involve the people you want, and for Rei it's especially great since Rei has another, different reason for being puzzled.

It's not just teenage angst with Rei, but she's seen and experienced some bad shit that'd give any philosopher something to think about.

I found her story to be great since the answers were legitimately hard to find. But Rei manages to find them in the end, and that was really great.

>>133393311
Yes.

Thank you for the reasonable answer.

I don't think those ideas were explored nearly enough and I ended up being disappointed. As I said, there's a lot of potential there that I thought was unexplored. but hey, its been a while since I watched it maybe I'll rewatch it and consider that this time around

>I don't think those ideas were explored nearly enough and I ended up being disappointed. As I said, there's a lot of potential there that I thought was unexplored.

No matter how you look at it, that is a good thing. Because Rei came through in NGE, and her story was put on paper in a way that didn't "steal the show". In the end, you wanted more because just like you said, and I agree with - there was so much potential here. There could be more.

That in itself goes a long way in validating Rei for perhaps not a MC-role, but a larger role in general.
>>
>>133393433
this, to be honest family.
>>
Seeing as all the worst episodes involve her, I disagree.
>>
>>133392642
Agreed, Shinji is a beta buck.

ive never understood the premise behind the asuka/rei debate anyway. eva is not a show that you should be arguing about whos the better waifu in the first place so usually it goes from which character is written better and then devolves into shitposting

I agree. All the stuff with her mother, her initial love for her Eva and then her becoming a woman and losing sync and everything would be cool. If her and Shinji swapped. But it would really just show all the same stuff just some different perspectives for some scenes.
Or do you mean like she is just Shinji? Like Gendo would be her dad and so on?

I like these ideas but the only issue I can think of is when Rei dies and becomes Rei 3 and so on would that work for a mc in your opinion? Genuinely interested in knowing.

Anon, there may have been an important piece you missed.

Rei dies, but who is Rei 3? She's Rei Ayanami. In a new clone body.

Not only would it work, it could be expanded upon and you could have at least 3+ more scenes where Rei meets her past and a discrepancy or connection is made clear.

Hey, your idea was shit.

Asuka has no story to be told here. Who gives a flying fuck about some slice of shit life with Asuka?
You realize Shinji has even less backstory work than Asuka, right?

I honestly think you are correct.

Misato is a much more compelling character.
