Real talk: the cool Rei, my favorite Rei moment is probably when she throws the spear.
Kind of Rei?..
Rei is Rei, you either like her or not.
If I'd have to pick the best of her, that would be somewhat of a boring choice, but calm, happy one.
Pretty much the only reason you'd want to watch Death is the best version of that scene. It's basically shot from manga in color. The original scene is extremely low-budget and in Rebild one the colors are too cold.
Free Rei where she has a life of her own and isn't just being used.
I actually read the manga before I saw the TV series. Stumbled upon the first couple of volumes in a public library one boring summer afternoon as a 14 year-old or something like that. Needless to day, NGE blew my teenage mind. So I saw Sadamoto's rendition of the scene and thought it looked amazing. You can imagine my disappointment when I saw the show and this pivotal scene just looked goofy as all hell.
Huh, that's pretty cool experience, not many people can say that. Looking back, the chapters with Kaworu (not only him, but what happened during them) were brilliant. Too bad he run out of steam in the end and just copied EoE storyboards.
I was 14 too. Told my friend Shinji jacks off in EoE, he didn't believe and watched it with his dad despite me repeatedly telling him that he shouldn't.

What a way to go.
To die in happiness
That's every mans dream
Properly drawn Rei. Artstyle in 24 is gourgeous.
I do like Kuronami too.
Though I consider her to be another character altogether, instead of new iteration of Ayanami herself.
She didn't really do anything to make me like or dislike her. Of course she is different character since the movie says that Rei is still in Eva 01. Although it's possible that creators or just Anno himself didn't care about nuances like that.
No, you're confusing everything.
Jesus stabbed the lance with a man, and because this man was long, Jesus was named Longinus.
Death Rei ist just too cute, jesus.
I don't get why people dislike Rei Q. During most of 3.0 I felt pretty sorry for her since she was being bullied by basically everyone. Although Shinji's behavior towards her was reasonable from his point of view, since he was disappointed in her not being the Rei he thought he had saved, it must've been pretty shit for Rei Q herself, who didn't do anything to provoke this kind of hostility. Plus everyone constantly calling her a fake throughout the movie.
>I'm not the real Ayanami?
I understand that the reason people are angry is because Rei II didn't appear in 3.0 and maybe they assume that Rei Q 'stole' her screentime, but that's just not true. If 3.0 wasn't horribly flawed in general, I wouldn't even mind her abscence, not in a 'I'm glad Rei didn't appear' sense, but because it's okay to be absent as long as it is explained and makes somewhat sense. Although it'd be nice as a fan to see her appear on the screen, it's not a requirement, as long as she has enough screentime throughout the whole of the Rebuild series (including 3.0+1.0). While of course TV is a different medium, she didn't appear in every episode of NGE, either and it still worked out. I think the same counts for a movie series if you look at it as a whole. If only we wouldn't have to wait so long for the sequel.
Did the left frame also happen in 24? Or was it maybe somewhere in Death & Rebirth? I don't remember that one.
idk where this picture is from
You disgust me. Clean up after your self.
