Doesn't the asuka vs Rei debate miss the point? I mean Rei is written as a literal doll and asuka is mentally fucked up, aren't they supposed to show that you shouldn't be after this type of woman?

They meant to contrast the Japanese ideal woman to the Japanese perception of the rest of the world's ideal woman.

>you must agree entirely with how the author wants you to perceive his work

If you don't view Sonichu as a family friendly work and see their beloved mayor as a hero, you are wrong.

>Try to make fucked up characters in a ploy to piss off otaku
>It backfires and just sets a new standard of character archetypes for otaku to fawn over
How embarassing. At least Anno succeeded in pissing people off with the ending.

Actually, Rei is a shitty toilet without a personality.

Asuka is the greatest anime character ever created.

Well, if you count the fact that people have been doing this with way older stories (Romeo and Juliet was supposed to be about the futility of youth love, not a love story), I guess there's no point trying to bring anyone to their senses with Rei and Asuka.
>>
>>147233602

How exactly have they lost touch with their senses?

Again, the audience is not obligated to agree with the author on anything that happens in his work. I point out the flaw with that line of reasoning here: >>147232883

On the contrary, it's the author's obligation to manipulate the audience's emotions to match what he wants them to feel about a particular scene or aspect of the story. When the author fails too often and/or in too big of a way in this regard, you usually wind up with a work that the audience can't bring themselves to get invested in (at least not for reasons that would make the author happy), AKA a bad work.

There are too many girls here in germany (and around the world) like her, except they get even bitchier and shittier as time goes on.

Girls like Rei are rare nowadays and don't fuck every guy behind your back and only use you which is why they are so great, which is why Rei is greater than Asuka.

No, I just have to look at other people's relationships to realize it's this way.

Wow, it's almost as if you didn't even watch the show.

I always preferred asuka, but damn, that rei picture is so fucking adorable
>>
>>147235127
Too bad Rei is really out of character.

Reilly

You had an opportunity you shitcunt
>>
>>147232621
Rei is a typical imagination of how a perfect girl should be like, cute, quiet and obedient(mostly), while Asuka acts like a girl who is on her period
so no matter what you prefer, you would have either
plus the benefit of 2d, don't forget that

it's no surprise that these two specifically have huge amount of fans
>>
I like in the catalogue there's a thread with Asuka whipping Rei and a thread with Rei smacking Asuka.
