Too much of a women for him? No man would put up with this cunt unless she is spreading her legs and shutting her mouth.
I swear you fags can excuse this bitch's behaviour and shuffle all the blame to Shinji because he isn't "man enough" to tolerate a disrespectful mentally disturbed tart.
You actually think he'd ever have the balls to seek contact when he's so afraid of rejection?
Maybe post-instrumentality Shinji but not before, he was a coward the whole way through.
No, he's canonically bisexual.
>He didn't feel anything for the other girls.
kaworufags are now reaching beyond reasonable limits
shinji is probably not the straightest guy in tokyo-3, but to say he felt nothing between 3 other female love interests is just delusion
He was sexually attracted to them, that makes him bisexual.
He's at least a 2 1/2.
Everyone was lonely in Eva.
>If you pay attention to him, he'll dick ya
Not necessarily, Touji Kensuke, Misato and Rei all paid enough positive attention to him and he didn't want to dick them.
To be fair, Rei was doing some body horror shit during that scene.
But he definitely likes vag. We see him get sexually aroused at girls multiple times in the show.
Just because he wasn't romantically in love with any of the girls doesn't suddenly mean he's gay.
Also, I'd like to add Shinji never really showed sexual attraction to Rei besides one brief scene from Leliel.
His tension with the girls centered around Asuka and a little bit of Misato.
Whenever I rewatch EoE and see Rei there with Asuka and Misato during the train scene, I feel they just kind of forced her there. But maybe that's just me.
He's afraid to be that close to anyone because of his childhood trauma and getting backstabbed by his father constantly. Kaworu was the only person so nice to him and so understanding of him that he felt he could open up to and see what happened.
The idea of Shinji is not that he's a weak man that needs to grow a pair, he's a child trying to grow up.
I wouldn't say he's bi in the way the west understands bisexual. You see, in japanese fiction, the way the favorite homo couples are presented is not making the OTP gay. Gay characters are usually burly guys, not twinks (usually not always).
Shinji is straight but his true love is Kaworu, because his attraction to Kaworu surpasses his orientation and sexuality, it's pure. Same with Kaworu, he's not gay, he just loves Shinji. It's the same deal with purifyfags and their waifus, only applied to homo, adding they have no interest on anyone else/or only on women just highlighted how exceptional OTP they are.
Now in the manga he's just a closeted homo.
Shinji isn't really gay. Just desperate. It should be a familiar kind of setup.
Ever since the '96s, Anno has been forcing down everyone's throats just how pure and innocent the Kawoshin OTP is by refusing to make it sexual but making it 100% blushing and romance like in your typical shitty Disney love story.
He basically made Kaworu to satisfy his own deep homosexual desires that every straight man has at least once in their life that they want to be loved by some perfect god-like little boy.
tl;dr, Anno is a fucking homosexual pedophile and uses Shinji as his persona to project those desires onto his work.
No, you misunderstand me, it's sexual too, but it's pure because it's only secondary to their true love that surpass their orientation. Basically, Shinji can't be attracted to any other guy because it would make the fans of Kawoshin angry.
This is why nip fujo and otaku generally coexist. They don't care if the mc shows interest in girls as long he's loyal to his husbando, and generally the husbando is androgynous and third-gender esque so the otaku don't care. Traps evolved from this.
This image is a middle finger to those butthurt Reifags who were spiteful after 3.0:
>Asuka as the HERO facing Evil Moon Rei.
>Kaworu and Shinji being gay
It's like whoever did this was stalking /a/ shitposting.
Manga Shinji is gay because Sadamoto is gay
He's definitely hurting for guidance, about all the direction he received before the series was a suggestion he learn cello. Parents failing their children and the inadequacy of available role models is prominent and applies to most of the characters.
Weakest part of Shinji was always just that he didn't know what he wanted and wasn't aware he was already making choices.
He created the perfect balance to pander everyone without even realizing. He wasn't looking to this in the 90s. It just kind of happened.
Shinji is bisexual to a western pov, but it's because we're not trying to fit those dumb-meta standards, but he can't act like that without pissing off fujos and otaku alike (and fudanshi) because if it's Kaworu, he's accepted and fine. They bitched more about Kaji in 2.0 than any Kaworu scene.
Sadamoto confesses to his Kaworu faggotry but is disgusting and confused about it.
Anno confesses to his Kaworu faggotry but is happy about it and even boasts it to the world like the fucking pedophilia faggot he is.
I heard in the most recent Super Robot Wars game, Kaworu's gender is not listed as male, but N/A.
He literally does not have a gender, and he already sort of looks like a girl, so otaku don't mind if Shinji fucks him because Shinji looks like a girl too.
Kaworu was definitely designed to look like a girl. It just weirdly transferred at times. But Sadamoto noted Kaworu design is a combination of Shinji's, Rei's and Asuka's, so he was meant to look like a trap. He failed at that I guess.
He was notably more shota in the original idea (he was supposed to wear a blue sailor uniform).
Anno did envision him as a guy but it seemed he eventually chickened out and added the 'Adam soul' stuff which made him not really male anymore. He just looks male.
Sadamoto designed Kaworu to be a sexy young girlish boy as the pedophile Anno ordered:
>in order to make him sexy, I pay special mind to his collarbone and waist, I want him has that peculiar flamboyant and beauty that only belong to a boy. He is thin, but have strong bones. I don’t want he to overlap with Shinji, so I make him a handsome boy type...
>Kaworu is a very rare type. His whole person is very handsome, Gainax never let me design someone like this before.His chin is sharp and clean, and his eyes and lips……If you wanna put a label on it, perhaps more like Johnny’s Jr. Even though he doesn’t look like one special person, but his whole image looks like Johnny’s Jr. When the Anime was still on air, I came across some Johnny’s Jr’s children. Their skin are really soft and pretty, they are very cute. Their faces look like a girl, with long and slender limbs. I remembered I thought that “so this is what a boy look like before he become a man”.
Yeah, they definitely switched it.
In the 90s Kaworu was sometimes portrayed as the uke but now he's 100% of the time seme in Kawoshin works.
And now in some spinoffs Shinji is even a girl.
They may as well just make them both girls so Kawoshin will be the yuri of every otaku's wet dream.
They should just make them both girls and call it a day.
Anno was following Plato's and Freud's teachings, senpai. Don't hate.
He has an official genderbend, unlike Shinji
Plato's The Symposium about soulmates and Freud's idea of romance connected to one's ideal self. That's why Kaworu had to be male (or at least appear male) because he was supposed to be the "Ideal Shinji".
Shinji has an official AU female version of himself who hooks up with an AU human version of Kaworu.
Shinji has to blame it on the misfortune of his birth.
Crippling beta fears and insecurities leading him to be unable to cash on his fame Game that should have been his naturally.
Asuka is fighting against her own insecurities and the fact that the closest thing to a male Alpha she knows in her line of works is a giant Beta faggot. She unconsciously asks for Shinji to 'man up', that is, to understand that what she wants is a man strong enough to tell her to shut up. Shinji is the ultimate Beta, though, and can't (and won't) man up.
As time goes on, Asuka becomes increasingly desperate for Shinji to become a real man, and Shinji, like most Beta, don't understand that and degenerate into a legume. This won't end well.
Gendo apparently cloned him with tits too, he knew what he was doing.
It's one of the spinoff manga, but I don't know which
In this scenario I vote for twin tails
Fuck no. Twintails are shit and I hate the Kaworu genderswap has them.
Nah, the long elegant hime cut suits Kaworu the most
I think this one is the best genderswap because it's classy.
