See, i agree that asuka has a character beyond just being tsundere. She has tons of flaws and develops past them to an extent.

However you dont seem to realize how much exacty rei develops throughout the series, and what impact this development has on the plot. She starts out as a doll created by gendo, but as we cone further we realize along with herself that she is her own person, capable of making her own decisions and deciding her own fate.
Eventually, during the climax of the story, she betrays her master, gendo and instead does what she wants to.

She has a huge amount of personality, depth and development, but fireposters either purposefully ignore or never even notice this.
>>
>>144441356
>Asuka has better character development, more impact on others, better interactions, and a better pay off overall.
Funny, I'd say that was the case for Rei.

Let's recap:

Rei develops into being more emotional, more in touch with herself, while also confronting the dark secrets behind her creations. She does this regularly since the beginning too, gradually chipping off the edge. It's not just about learning that "relationships are good" with Rei, but also that some relationships are bad - i.e the one with Gendo, in which she ends up rejecting and shunning Gendo by the end.

Asuka has very little development as a character, as she remains the same for virtually the entire series. She is unable to change herself, and she takes the consequences of not being able to adapt or understand new things. She may deteriorate, become hurt or unresponsive, but she is still the same character she was at the beginning.

As for more impact on others, well, I don't know. Rei has Gendo the Ice Mountain rush to her aid in despair, she has Shinji crying for her safety, she saves Asuka and everyone elses lives several times,and of course, she makes Asuka and Ritsuko for instance super-jealous. She is admired by both Toji and Kensuke, for maturity and uh, calves. She makes Shinji try to care for others than himself at times, which is good.
What about a literal impact, didn't Rei as Lilith give birth to them all prior to the series, and didn't Rei oversee the third Impact?

Surely Asuka has had impact on other people, particularly Shinji. But she is limited to just that, Shinji for the most part. She has no dealings with other major characters, save for Kensuke and Toji which she enrages.

But then there's the payoff.... wow. Rei just has Asuka beat in every way here.

While Asuka is never in the series able to actualize herself and make a decision for improvement, Rei was. Rei then goes on to become a God, and Asuka just rode Rei's wave. I'd go on but char limit.
>>
Rei is just a shitty doll
>>
>>144441525
"Fireposters" know full well that Rei is superior to Asuka. It's why they are fireposters and not regular posters.

Their aberrant and belligerent behavior exists as a reaction to their own, personal defeat at the hands of Rei.

the real question is which Rei
>>
>>144442033
me on the left
>>
>>144442033
that one in the middle
>>
One irony of Evangelion is that Asuka calls Rei a puppet.

Asuka was reared as a small child to become an EVA-pilot, and never ever considered that she'd have some sort of other future than the one planned for her by NERV.
Rei was also reared from a small child to serve NERV, but she ends up questioning not only herself and her own role, but

Practically the consequences of this is best shown in Evangelion's late-game.

When Rei loses her EVA and cannot pilot any more, she is virtually unaffected and instead turns the focus on antagonizing NERV and understanding her situation better.

When Asuka is unable to pilot because NERV has rejected her, she loses all will to live and becomes catatonic to the point you'd think she was comatose.

We can see here that Asuka is and always was, a puppet being controlled by NERV. Like a puppet, she collapses into a lifeless abhuman once the strings to her puppet masters, the EVA, is cut.
Rei on the other hand, proves Asuka wrong by not only retaining the integrity of her personality, but also strengthening it.

There is a reason for why Asuka is the one with dolls in her background, and Rei is free of it.
>>
>>144442268
when Rei turns on shinji's dads wishes in EoE she finally shows her true self, its weird though, 'she' wouldn't have done so imo if original rei didn't die from nuking self to prevent alien infection. that Rei was loyal to a fault.

>>144442532
Not that loyal. Whenever did Rei prove her loyalty?

Whenever NERV says "Hey, don't do that Rei", Rei does it anyway.

dude, she literally kills herself to deal with the aliens at the time. if dying for a cause is not loyalty I don't know what is.

her change in personality is noticable when she see's shinji's dads broken glasses and she shows no relation to it, despite him saving her that time, she doesn't remember because its a different Rei.

plus when shinji bad mouths his father and she bitchslaps him.
>>
>>144442268
Rei is still the puppet. Because of that she has nowhere to fall while Asuka who isn't a puppet was able to make her own decisions, fall, and pick herself back up.
>>
>>144442954
It's not loyalty, it's doing the right thing. Rei would have died regardless if she let the aliens win, remember?
>>
>>144443098
>Rei is still the puppet. Because of that she has nowhere to fall while Asuka who isn't a puppet was able to make her own decisions, fall, and pick herself back up.

Congratulations on making no sense at all. NGE clearly shows that Asuka never made her own personality, and only followed NERV's bidding to become an EVA pilot, and because of that, Asuka didn't have anything else. Rei who had been making her own thoughts, decisions and ideas, didn't break like Asuka did because she had herself to fall back on.

>Asuka picked herself up
Hahaa, no.

Thanks for confirming you haven't seen Evangelion or are to stupid to understand Asuka. Asuka did make her own personality and she did for herself, not for anyone else. She desired independence, she wanted everyone to love her, she became an eva pilot on her own, not because anyone told her to or for anyone's sake. All you see is her mask she wears and ignore what's underneath it.

Thank for confirming you didn't watch Evangelion. What you're describing is not Asuka in any way whatsoever. It is non-canonical fanwank.

NERV did indeed recruit her into the EVA-programme as she was a child, this being the plan by incorporating her mother into the EVA. The first Asuka hears about the EVA is after NERV people tell her that she's "special", this making Asuka very excited. People don't become EVA pilots on their own, they are selected and incorporated into a programme controlled by NERV.

You can't just insist that she had her own personality like that. You need evidence, proof. I have absolute proof of the opposite - the proof being that without this identity as an EVA-pilot, Asuka collapsed, proving that she had nothing that was genuinely hers. If someone can take away your personality, it's not yours. It's not personal, unique to you.

Rei is a much stronger person because whatever little Rei has, it's hers and it can't be taken away.

>>144444175
They told her to pilot the EVA, they gave her manipulatively encouraging words like she was special, let her believe she was special, because they wanted her as a puppet. Asuka became that puppet. The personality she had disappeared the second NERV stopped controlling her. It was never hers to begin with.

She was dependent on the identity as an EVA-pilot the same way the puppet is dependent on the strings that move it.

>hur dur ur an idiot

Except she did create her own personality on her own. It was a mask but it was her that created it. NERV didn't need Asuka as a pilot, they had plenty of spares, she chose to become one. Yes they had her selected as a possibility but it was her own decision to do it and become someone. When she is mindraped she breaks down because the angel tore off her mask for everyone to see and she hated that. She broke because the angel broke her. She didn’t have much else because of her own life choices, not because anyone forced her.

>>
>>144440969
Which is peculiar because even Rei's progression in the first two movies is more in-your-face compared to the series
>>144441176
It really depends on the incarnation, Asuka Soryu is an interesting character, while Asuka Shikinami is the stereotypical tsundere
>>144441356
Also here there's difference between NGE and Rebuild

In NGE, Asuka is much more forceful but stays the same until the very end, you just see her degenerating because of her apparent or real failures, it's only in EoE that she feels liberation when she realizes her bond with 02, and the very final gesture of the movie when she finally makes a gentle gesture. But there you have developement happening in just the last 30 minutes out of an entire show + movie
Rei is more subdued in her expressions and thus is less apparent, but she has most evolution of all the characters, opening up mostly with Shinji and ultimately standing up to Gendo and instead giving the keys of third impact to Shinji as a culmination of her turning from the beginning of the series, and you have very powerful moments like when she cries on the broken glasses that is a very evident contrast to the first meeting with shinji.

In Rebuild you have Asuka as your classical tsundere, who in the end opens up to both Shinji and Rei showing a hidden gentle side.
Rei has a similar evolution compared to the original series, but is made more explicit in her actions, with her emoting much more, openly standing up to people and taking action in making the people around her happier.
In this version they have a similar magnitude of evolution

Then you have 3.0 where Asuka is more hardened and Rei doesen't aven appear, there is Rei 9 that is a different character with a different story and possibly evolution, so you can't elaborate that much there.

>Except she did create her own personality on her own. It was a mask but it was her that created it.
No proof of that in the series.

>NERV didn't need Asuka as a pilot, they had plenty of spares, she chose to become one.
Complete, absolute utter fanwank. There is explicitly a scene which shows Asuka being happy about her special selection. She didn't choose anything, she was made into one by NERV.

>Yes they had her selected as a possibility but it was her own decision to do it and become someone.
She was not selected as a possibility, she was prepared alongside her mother and she had been working at being an EVA pilot her entire life.

>When she is mindraped she breaks down because the angel tore off her mask for everyone to see and she hated that. She broke because the angel broke her.
Not only is that not true, the Angel wasn't the one that broke her. Asuka is "broken" not because the Angel showed her the truth and reminded her of how pathetic she was, but because NERV said she would be unable to pilot. She is still a pilot after that event, but after episode 23, they replace her and that's when she breaks.

She breaks because she no longer has an identity, NERV took it away with a flick of their hand. That's absolute proof that Asuka had no personality, and no individuality besides being exactly what NERV had reared her to be.

>She didn’t have much else because of her own life choices, not because anyone forced her.
She was forced by NERV into becoming their puppet, and she was a puppet.

Accept it, stop lying about a cartoon because you want to protect the image of your waifu. Especially give up on the idea that Asuka is better than Rei in the original in fields like these, because it'll only make you hate Evangelion and Asuka. You want Shikinami, not Asuka.

Why even create your own animation studio if you're going to do jack shit with it?

Over 10 years and all they've managed to really do are the Rebuild movies and some anime expo shorts. What is the majority of the studio even doing right now? Twiddling their thumbs?

Rei only develops from a thing to an individual. Creating bonds with others etc. Getting to like life itself by finding stuff you like. That's her character theme. She's basically a meta character.

Asuka is completely fucked up and gets into different stages throughout her development. While Rei starts at 0 Asuka starts at -10. She isn't just apathetic she has actual problems with that. And all that also reaches a climax which isn't the case for Rei.

Asuka beats the shit out of Rei in character and character development.

Rei was born and raised a human being, and she was always an individual. A repressed individual, but not a thing per se. It's not like anything about Rei changed physically, her character is in itself proof that despite different origins, she's still sentient and a moral human being.

>Asuka is completely fucked up and gets into different stages throughout her development. While Rei starts at 0 Asuka starts at -10. She isn't just apathetic she has actual problems with that. And all that also reaches a climax which isn't the case for Rei.
Complete made up bullshit. It's the other way around, you nonce.

Asuka never reaches a proper climax, but Rei does.

Khara was largely created for Anno to wrest control over the Evangelion franchise, and to reshape it into a new Evangelion based on his experience with the old. He is an old, petty otaku who values character popularity more than story and quality, and so it's not a stretch to say that Khara exists purely to promote his favorite Evangelion characters, and give every other character in the way hell.

He's a fantastic live-action director.

He's obviously embarrassed by Eva and wants to move on to more mature projects, now Anime for children.

Jesus fuck how pessimistic /a/ is. Perhaps he want to be remembered as more than "that dude who created Eva", kind of like Kojima. He also seems to be succeeding at it since the new Godzilla is apparently really good.

Basically, Rei starts out at a minus -100 while Asuka starts out at a comfortable zero in comparison. Rei was born in a lab with no parents, surrounded by scientists with no respect for her life. One of them quite literally murders her on a whim, calling her replaceable.

This situation never ends at any point for Rei.

In comparison, Asuka is born into a normal family, and then loses her mother. She is then selected into the EVA program, and her father remarries and Asuka goes on to lead a relatively normal life, albeit under the complete influence of NERV.

In the series, Rei develops positively and changes her own character, while Asuka remains stagnant and becuse of that, fails spectacularly to reach any self-improving conclusion.

The NGE-series ends with Rei affirming her own worth and daring to see beyond what NERV has set out for her, while for Asuka it ends with her comatose in a bed. Asuka is something of an unresolved character, while Rei has an actual point based on her own experiences to make.

Rei can communicate some words of wisdom to the viewer, Asuka can only lie still and rock about in the storm surrounding her.

There's just no comparison. Asuka fans actually hate Evangelion and what it is, and need to delude themselves with lies to coexist with the rest.

>>144446270
This.
There's an interview with the seiyuu for Sakura where when she first met him and asked what he did, he showed her his live action movies and never once mentioned Eva.
It's not a work he wants on his resume.
>>
>>144446270
>"that dude who created Eva"

Most creative people would dream to create a work as popular, groundbreaking, influential and iconic as Eva. Most creative people would love to be known for creating at least one decent, memorable thing that isn't a fucking fad. Most people don't come close to achieving that.

>Except this extended delay is more or less proof that he doesn't give a fuck about Eva anymore, much less animation.
The delay was always intentional. 3.33 is the state of Evangelion how he wants it to be. With 3.33, he managed to present characters he doesn't like as unimportant,pathetic or weak, and to praise and glorify his favorite characters. It deeply affects the fanbase, and it's this effect Anno wanted.

There was never any need for a fourth movie once he had done this, which is also why he never thought he'd make a fourth.

Anno hasn't changed, and 4.0 will be another 3.0, mark my words.

>>144446245
Both of those are crap.

>>144446270
I don't think /a/ is pessimistic. I think you're an absolute moron though who can't think for himself or apply any sort of critical thought whatsoever. You just want to create a idol and a figurehead of Anno.

"No, that's not true", you say, or you want to reply. "He really doesn't want to be known for EVA", you say. Yet despite that, he chose to remake Evangelion and make it his biggest project, funding an entire studio to facilitate it's creation.

Protip: STOP MAKING IDOLS OUT OF OLD, JAPANESE MEN. STOP TREATING THEM AS MYSTIC OBJECTS FROM A FAR EASTERN LAND. THEY ARE NOT OLD WISE MAN ARCHETYPES.

The sooner you stop romanticizing reality, the sooner you'll grow up.

Eva or not, I don't think you anons see what I'm getting at here.

He created the Eva movies to fund his own animation studio - an extremely wealthy studio at that - and now he's pretty much flat-out abandoned that studio to work on live-action projects. Aside from the anime expo, they haven't done anything significant since. Instead, the rest is just busywork, like commercials or lending a hand to other studios. He hasn't let anyone over there create any new and real shows, movies, etc of their own.

That's fickle as selfish as fuck.

Take off your fetish glasses friend.
Asuka started a shit, she was just a butch without anything remotely entertaining and later onshe only got worse but we got some interesting character development as her personality coroded and she completely degraded and lost sanity.
That was a quality character.

Rei in other hand appeared as an intriguing and mistic figure, her introduction scene was herself trying to get into the robot with all bones broken, and later on she proceeds to show quite an interesting and unique character and develp to be even more as a person.

I don't really disagree, you probably misunderstood me. I'm not saying Asuka is a poor character either, I'm commenting on their lives.

Being raised in a lab.... yeah.

>>144446594
I just mentioned that it isn't only about Eva anymore.

Thanks to the Eva movies, he has an extremely wealthy animation studio under his belt. An animation studio that can actually fund and produce the shit they want to create. That was the purprose of the Expo shorts, was it not? To introduce the next line of anime directors?

So, where are their IPs? Where are their movies? Where are their shows?

Let's ignore the waifu war for a while, I feel that Rei never came anywhere close to her potential as a character Thanks a lot Anno. The first few episodes had so much laid out for her to be extremely well developed, but no let's ignore all that until the very end.

It's a work not necessary to show in this context in any way whatsoever.

You're retarded, it's right in her cast interview:
She probably knew what Eva is, but didn't know Anno is the director. And he's the one who never brought up Eva to her, he doesn't see it as a serious work he can show to other people to display his talents:

>ISE: Yes. In fact, I feel like getting this part was a turn of fate. When I was in high school, I starred in a series called Sugar Sugar Rune, and I was introduced to Anno-san when I had dinner with the mangaka Moyoco Anno and the rest of the cast. Like, “this is my husband, Hideaki Anno”. I was fearless back then, so I asked Anno-san, who’d been drinking wine by the window, “So, what stuff have you worked on?” I think everyone else just froze when I asked him that. (laughs) But he responded really kindly and said, “Look me up. I do some live action, so I’ll give you this”, and handed me a DVD of Love & Pop. I was so touched by that gesture, and I always wanted to work with him ever since.

>>144446791
Rei was the only character besides Shinji that delivered on some of her potential though. Rei has a very high potential that could even involve an entirely new series with her as the MC to make use of it all.

In the original, it wasn't really necessary to deliver more than they did. There's just no time for it, it's 26 episodes and the story isn't about Rei, it's about Shinji and the rest of the cast which includes Rei. Every character gets a good portion of quality to make up a great whole.

Rei's part was not only fine, it was phenomenal and earned her a spot as NGE's most influential and impactful character.

>>144446973
>That was only a fan-made lie, which was spread to keep up Anno's good name.

I honestly had some sliver of hope that the Anime expo wasn't just another means to an end to feed Anno's ego, and that they would be working on a myriad of their own unique shows and movies after they were finished with 4.0. ...But they haven't even fucking started 4.0.

I used to feel sympathy for Anno. I felt genuinely sorry for him during his little bitchfit breakdown after 3.0, understanding that he need to do a different project on the side to lessen the burden of 4.0...

But it's been 4 years and still fucking nothing. Still nothing substantial for the studio that he funded either, besides said expo and some co-joint studio stuff, like that upcoming Skating show. It really is all just coming off as busywork to keep them occupied.


This confirmation was the final straw for me; I no longer feel sympathy for the man. He truly is an egotistical cunt.

Lots of people don't know who made what, she was just a high school girl at the time and there's no reason why she should know the director of some otaku work. Gundam is even more popular than Eva and who directed it isn't common knowledge either.

She was there to work on a project with his wife, he introduced himself as a live-action director. He didn't mention Eva. End of story:

Meanwhile the studio he created is basically doing jack-shit.

It's not like he hired numerous studios to work on Rebuild - no - he created his own studio, which is sitting on fuck-ton of money, and they're not doing jack with it because Anno conveniently decided that animation isn't his thing anymore.

Uh-huh. So where is the "iconic" Lina Inverse nowadays? I see them raising statues of Rei and Rei re-appearing in popularity polls decades after, but there's no Lina in sight. I see Rei credited as an icon in women's magazines, nicknamed "The Premium Girl" for her recognizability, and more.

So tell me, what is your fucking problem that you need to pretend that Lina is more iconic than a character so iconic she is the figurehead of municipal programs in Japan, and a face of the state "Cool Japan!" program of the foreign ministry?

It didn't even have something to do with the situation, it was about narrative character potential. Hell what you brought up doesn't even mean anything IF your delusions were somehow right, because you don't have to be the most popular to have a cultural impact.

Not only that, you're lying about several things earlier, the latest lie being that Anno told her that he's a director for a living.

No you moron, the interview clearly states
>But he responded really kindly and said, “Look me up. I also do some live action, so I’ll give you this”, and handed me a DVD of Love & Pop. I was so touched by that gesture, and I always wanted to work with him ever since.

which has NOTHING from Anno saying he's a director. In fact both the nature of the question asked and answer implicitly states that both knew he was a director. He doesn't even say he "does live action", no.

He says he ALSO does Live Action, in addition to what he actually does.

>I see them raising statues of Rei and Rei re-appearing in popularity polls decades after
The statues are thanks to Eva's popularity which Rei is just riding on, she doesn't reappear in popularity polls unless the other Eva characters are on it.
She was nicknamed the Premium Girl for being to sell out a lot of Otaku merchandise, that isn't exactly a good thing. She's a niche character for a niche sadistic fanbase.

>a face of the state "Cool Japan!"
That would be both Asuka and Rei. Again, riding on Eva's popularity.

If Rei is as iconic and popular as you say, she wouldn't be getting her ass served to her by Rina.

Tell me how Rem and Rei are similar, all I'm seeing is blue hair.

And no one said Rei didn't have characters inspired from her, but she's not the only one to do so. Even other Eva characters have the same to this day. Kaworu had one literally last season.

>The statues are thanks to Eva's popularity which Rei is just riding on,
Rei made Evangelion's popularity, and is herself an icon. Rei is a part of Evangelion, despite how much of an ugly otaku you are who hates the character. Sorry!

>she doesn't reappear in popularity polls unless the other Eva characters are on it.
Why the hell wouldn't other EVA characters be on the polls if Rei is available for selection? Rei appears high tier, above the rest in 99% of the cases. Lina is nowhere to be seen. I like Lina and Slayers, but you're absolutely pathetic.

>She was nicknamed the Premium Girl for being to sell out a lot of Otaku merchandise, that isn't exactly a good thing. She's a niche character for a niche sadistic fanbase.
So because you can't deal with Rei's popularity and status as an icon, you make shit up about the audience that likes her - typical jealous otaku scum. Stop projecting.

>That would be both Asuka and Rei. Again, riding on Eva's popularity.
Nope, just Rei. Sorry kid.

>If Rei is as iconic and popular as you say, she wouldn't be getting her ass served to her by Rina.
Rei never got her ass served to her by Lina.

Sorry, but all you're doing is showing that Rei-haters are insistent pests.

The truth now is that he doesn't give a fuck about Evangelion or animation anymore, period.

This "favorites" game of yours doesn't even exist. As the other anon pointed out, he didn't even mention that he was the director of Evangelion. That alone is proof that he's done with Eva as a whole.

Instead, it's now clear that his anime studio is just there to fund more money in his pockets. Not for the betterment of an already stagnating industry - even though they have the funds to create some big game-changers now - but to fuel his ego as he moves off to work on live-action pet projects.

There are so many other people in the industry who WISH they could create a work as popular and as groundbreaking as Eva. There are studios out there BEGGING execs and producers to create their own ideas rather than fill the standard shonen/moe/idol/ecchi role in order to bring in stable viewers and a steady flow of cash.

Instead, here is a man who has EVERYTHING going for him and his studio - he created on of the most iconic works in his medium and has control over an extremely wealthy studio - and he fucks off to live action because suddenly decides that he's bored with anime. He doesn't even give his own anime studio the say to create their own shows and IPs - instead everything has be under his name and word even though he no longer gives a fuck. Instead he gives them busy projects like the anime expo that don't really amount to jack shit. It's been 4 fucking years and even a dead-broke studio like Trigger has created more notable work in this regard. At least they're fucking trying.

All I see now is a fucking egotistical, self-centered, conceited cunt.

Well there's literally a legion of direct Reiclones, just a fucking shitton of them.

Rem began as a harsh and unsocial character.
Very abrasive and distrustful to everyone except her precious Ram (Gendo)
Traumatized, doesn't look for any contact, doesnt talk shit.

Like Rei she shows excellency in everything she does, she cleas cooks and crops Prefectly.
Rei had perfect marks at school and did everything she had to PERFECTLY.

Later on like Rei she was touched by niceness of MC and became dovoted to him
Went nuts and tried to get herself killed for him

Actually THE ONLY difference between them is that Rem doesn't keep a stoneface.
thats it, she emotes unlike Rei.
Literally everithing else she does as Rei would do

Oh well. You spent the last, what, four years denying the truth, what's another four right? You had to cave in and accept the facts that indeed, Anno was selfish and egotistical.
Despite all the facts laid out for you, you've observed how differently the characters are treated, you've gotten proof of his preference, and yet you still deny it.

The truth is that he doesn't give a crap about Evangelion beyond making money on it, and popularizing his favorite characters. It's not speculation, it's what he's been doing for the past decade or so if not even longer.

This isn't just about Evangelion anymore. This is about Anno having everything handed to him on a silver platter - the financial stability and offers that most other anime directors would've dreamed of - and doing fuck-all with it because he conveniently decided that he was bored of animation. He has the power to fund some truly great projects coming from new generation of animators and directors working under his studio - and he doesn't do jack fucking shit. He gives them busywork. He goes off to work on Godzilla while they twiddle their thumbs.

At least I had the impression (or rather, the hope) that he was co-directing 4.0 and Godzilla simultaneously. Or at least allowing a few of his new and budding directors to create their own shows, maybe even their own OVAs. But nope.

It's almost insulting.

That you actually thought he'd direct the two at the same time, and that you probably insisted on how it was true despite every single evidence pointing in the other direction, despite the fact that you had no proof, just shows you how deep otaku delusion can go.

Anno is very well off, and he did great work in the past and so I don't mind him resting on his laurels at all. But here is where reality kicks in, and you start denying. He can do whatever he wants, but what does he want? He's a major otaku with a hateboner for Rei, and a love for Asuka and Kaworu.

Why can you not logically connect the Rebuilds with everything Anno has uncritically presented himself as for the past twenty years? Are you incapable of asking yourself:

Both are wrong as we see Rei in this thread getting terribly beaten by other Anime characters many times and we see other Eva characters are very popular as well.
If she was as influential as you say, she wouldn't be less recognizable and less popular than Nami from One Piece. And she is.

According to interview material provided with Manga Rei is made of two things:
1 Sailor Mercury
2 destroying the sex doll stereotype.
When her character was written they wanted to make her appear as popular in that time no will no power fuckdoll characters.
Rei was intended to appear as one in the beginning, then to show massive strength and willpower, her very owm and sold SELF, and then to turn back at the viewer and say "I am not your doll" and walk away.
That was Rei's premise.

What the Reifags have been telling you is the equivalent of "so fucking what, Ple/Four are hardly the first clones or lab-grown people, nor the last.".
Fiction, and anime especially, are literally full of them.

You seem to be entirely unable to grasp that it is the combination of all these factors that make them unique, and the execution. The fact that Rei is the one that is credited with popularizing a specific archetype is testament to the icon-status.

You hate it because you're jelaous, petty otaku.

Yes Rei was a tribute to Sailor Mercury.

And yes she grew more meaningful and more important than Mercury herself.
Rei just is MORE, more character, more drama, more attention, more depth and more to talk about.

The rest of the history were influenced by Ayanami Rei's appeal, not by Mercury, because Rei outweights Mercury by several magnitudes.

Stop bringing everything back to Rei. Rei isn't the only character who got "fucked over" in Rebuild, not by a long shot.

Misato, Kaji, Ritsuko, Fuyutsuki, Gendo and so on - all have it way worse than your precious little Rei. Your precious little Rei had two whole Rebuild movies dedicated to her and her little cute relationship with Shinji. She's absent for one film and you neckbeard autists blow your goddamn lid and take everything out of line.

And Misato was one of Anno's favorites. Explain why she's consistently shat on in Rebuild from a popularity and character perspective?

I'm not saying there are other problems. But this is the core of the problem, the other characters are as poor as this only as a result.

You autists already got your serving of fanservice in 2.0. Hell, you were satiated with 1. 0 as well. If anything all of the Rei fanservice in 1.0 and 2.0 has made your lot spoiled and entitled, which is why they threw a delusional bitch-fit with Rei Q in 3.0.

Nigger i don't give arbitrary comparison of quality because i don't have scales to measure exactly how much Rei > Everything Else.

However what i provide is observations of influence and history of industry.
Because Ayanami Rei has left the biggest footprint on entire Japanese pop-culture than any other anime girl ever.

>"The release in October 1995 of Neon Genesis Evangelion on Japanese TV ignited a boom in merchandise unprecedented in a country already awash with such goods. As if overnight, well over 600 different items were made to commemorate the event. Figures were the most popular, with the inimitable bandaged Rei outselling all else. The Eva girls, kitted out in swimwear and striking suggestive poses, were, overall, a huge success, and things went a bit too far…" pg 126 of Fujie 2004. See also: "Arguably, it is because of Anno's dictates on design that few Evangelion toys were initially made. But figures of Rei, in all her bandaged beauty, sold like wild fire. This is probably the first and only example of an animated [mecha] series where reproductions of the human characters outsold those of the robots." pg 98.
http://evangelion.wikia.com/wiki/Rei_Ayanami
Here are references with sources.

Rei has taken inspiration from places, however shw was THE BIGGEST BOOM EVER.

Your little theory falls apart, as 2.0 was objectively more generous with Asuka, and there's citations from the staff that they took care to not hurt the Asuka fans.

I think the problem is that you simply don't want to admit you were wrong. What remains an unviolated principle in all Rebuilds, is indeed that Anno looks after his favorite characters while setting up the rest for failure. You say Anno doesn't care about quality, but why is that? Why wouldn't he care about quality? Because his mind is elsewhere. On making his waifus look good. That is death to quality.

No matter how long it takes, one day before you die you will come to accept that this is the reality of Anno and his Evangelion.

Listen, m8. This insane Rei-hater clearly doesn't respond to reason. You should just lambast the cuck for inventing shit and trying to downplay Rei's popularity and character.

They can't do it using the canon, so they expand further out into the real world by criticizing Rei's fans and trying to pretend she wasn't popular or liked at all. When that fails, you get spam attacks and ad hominem for ever and ever.

Nowhere there does it say the biggest boom ever, and says Eva in GENERAL, not Rei.

Rei got beated by Nami from One Piece, if she can't even win over her she can't earn any memorable title in Anime.

>>144450168
>Your little theory falls apart, as 2.0 was objectively more generous with Asuka,

Except it wasn't?
If anything 3.0 was more generous for Asuka from a fanservice perspective.

2.0 was straight-up fanservice for the Reifags and it shows in how many supported the movie and its ending.

>one day before you die you will come to accept that this is the reality of Anno and his Evangelion.

My point. She i OK with experiencing death repeatedly. That's what i meant by strength.

Rei was only able to defy Gendo because of the powers granted unto her by her fusing with Adam. Rei alone could not have defied Gendo. Gendo had to give her Adam and previously relied on Gendo for medicine essential to her existence, thusly her "strength" was heavily reliant on two outside factors.

>>144450291
>Except it wasn't?
It was. Point for point, and if 3.0 also had fanservice for Asuka? That only proves my point. It's the same, consistent thing throughout the movies.

>2.0 was straight-up fanservice for the Reifags and it shows in how many supported the movie and its ending.
You know what I call it, as did everyone else except Asuka fans? Normal storytelling. With characterization, storytelling that adds up, it's regular fare. We don't call NGE's version of the characters to be fanservice versions because they do well with the characters. It's allowed to develop.

It's not "how many", 2.22 was and still is the most successful of the three Rebuilds so far, and is even the best rated by japanese reviewers on any aggregate site like rottentomatoes.

I won't say that 2.22 didn't hold potentially interesting new stuff for Rei. But I will say that they invalidated that stuff with 3.33.

>That his interest in the franchise has long-since waned and that he now uses it solely for money and nothing else?

That his interest in the franchise is limited to popularizing his waifus, and attacking Rei - and of course, making money. This fact is likely taken advantage of people like Tsurumaki, who uses this disinterest to figure the characters as he wants them. After all, his only comment on the movie is that "he thought Asuka was SO cute in the terminal dogma scene".

>His favorite character next to Asuka
So I wonder, where's the citation for that? I've never seen one, and I doubt one exists.

But you asked for an explanation, sure. Misato isn't Asuka, his favorite character. It's that easy. She's expendable, remember? He killed her in EoE without going into her character at all.

In Rebuild, he makes her the captain of an independent force labeled to be the good guys, fighting with team Asuka and the goodies against the Evil NERV where the Rei's are. I mean, does this just fly over your head or something?

Being the captain of a super-ship that fights the evil guys is hardly a bad deal. Give me a call when Fuyutsuki sits down Shinji to tell him how much of a worthless entity Misato is, and Misato doesn't have an inch of will in her body. Show me the Rei Q to Misato.

I really have troubles trying to comprehend your haphazard thinking.

In your head "strenth" means to blow up Nerv like YAHOOO and walk away?
Or do you mean that he controlled her with pills?

neither is correct.
Point 1 Rei wanted to actually die and return to her true existence but she was kept alive by force.
Point 2 She actually cared about gendo and people.
She genuinely wanted good for those people and willingly served at NERV no force or |Pressuation required.

Ayanami Rei had personal willpower and strong character making her own decisions.
1 She lead everyone through the blackout Nerv on her owl like a leader.
2 She chose to launch Kamikae attack at Zeruel while Gendo said "stop"
3 She expressed social initiative several times having strong opinions and trying to offer others (Shinji, Asuka, Toji) moral support.
4 She literally fucked over Gendo. She made choise over him, She Chose agains her most important person BECAUSE SHE HAS BALLS
This is the strenght i was talking about and your every point is invalid.
>>
>>144450643
Yeah, not convincing anyone there. I and the rest will take the canonical character development of Rei that leads up to this very moment before any Asuka fan delusions.
For the rest, just check out what the pamphlet following the EoE theatrical release said. For any doubters, it literally says Rei did it of her own free will. Those were the words used.
>>
Asuka of course.
Rei is a plot device, not a character. A plot device cannot have characterization.
>>
>>144450792
See >>144450536

Asukafags like the one you're talking with simply aren't reasonable. They just want to spread lies about Rei because they can't deal with reality. They look at Rei, see how inferior Asuka is to her, and they take out their feelings on Rei and Rei fans. It's a story of jealousy, and how dangerous obsession can be.

What deux ex machina? Do you even know what that is?

The Adam thing or the Lilith thing? Because both has been featured ages ago in the series, and that certainly doesn't quantify as deus ex machina.

Rei's only source of negative reaction is jealousy.
She literally never did anything to piss anyone off.

>>144450905

Some (((Journalist))) found a picture of Asuka with a MAGA hat and wrote an article about how Asuka is some code for white supremacy and antisemitism, and that SEELE are jews and NGE is secretly filled with antisemitism. Apparently Asuka with a MAGA hat is a nod to all this and that people post it to secretly signal to other white supremacist, antisemitic trump supporters. The article is one of the most autistic and paranoid things ever written.

Projecting, aren't ya, Asucuck? Point being, the only reason Asukafags dislike Rei is rampant jealousy. Because it's certainly not for slapping Shinji.

>Weasel-wording again? Don't move goalposts. I simply said she needed Adam to actively defy Gendo.
Nope. All it take was for Rei to refuse cooperating or do anything else, like shooting him, running away, anything. Gendo is 100% dependent on Rei's cooperation, not the other way around.

Judging from this thread, Asuka fans are racist, hate-filled obsessives who clearly didn't understand Evangelion past their waifu.

>>144457411
Her psychotic bitch personality is why I feel sorry for asuka. She does it entirely because she doesn't want to come off as weak, I have a lot of sympathy for her.
>>
>>144457448
I don't.

I have sympathy for Rei, because all she tries to do is her best, and yet she gets shit for it, even when she tries to help.
>>
>>144457537
I can understand if you hate asuka. First time watching eva, I wanted asuka to die painfully so badly, but I've gotten to hate her less over time.
>>
>>144457448
>>144457537
I have sympathy for both of them.

Not so much for Shinji. At least not original series Shinji.
>>
>>144457610
I hate her less with the Japanese voice. She actually manages to sound like a legitimate human being that way, while the dubs sounds like nails on chalkboard. Not to hate on dubs simply because it's dubs, there are good dubs. But Eva is sadly not one of them.
>>
>>144457610
I never wanted Asuka to die. I could recognize that she was no good, but that's that.

I felt really bad for Rei though, and I have to admit that what has happened to Evangelion and how Asukafags act has made me bitter about the whole Asuka character.
>>
>>144457687
Don't hate the character because of the fags.

Really, the only thing I hate about all this is how people get carried away in threads like these. Seriously, lol.
>>
Soryu is a better character than Shikinami
>>
>>144457752
To put it this way, every time an Asukafag gets "carried away", and spreads lies about Asuka/Rei whatever, it only highlights how poor/mean a character Asuka is.

So to put a rampaging Asukafag straight, you need to remind him of how crappy Asuka is of a person, and it forces you to look into just how bad she is.

The "fags" are only making me remember how poor it was.
