Lets talk about Aoba.
>>
he recognizes worst girl and does not fall for her tricks. good man.

>>151590722
>Ikari masturbated to Asuka
>Aoba masturbated to Ayanami
It's the only logical reason why he saw Rei. Whereas everyone else saw someone they knew. He never had any interactions with Rei, so he probably strummed at the stings to his guitar to her and fantasized fucking her.
>>
>>151590722
He never had any personal relationship's he got the default ending
>>
>>151590841
>>151590885
But then why is he so scared? I get that he wouldn't be happy, but he shouldn't be cowering in the corner when everyone else was pumped to go.

Because everyone saw their most loved one coming to tangify them.

This poor bastard only saw the reis coming to fuck his shit up.
Quite sad, really.
>>
>>151591010
they were going with the people they loved to be as one. Aoba knew that he was going to be tanged and didn't want to accept it. Others willingly accepted becoming tang.

>>151590841
When did Shinji see Asuka? When he choked her? But that's under significantly different circumstances- in a vision, and in a different sequence, from everyone else. And Rei didn't turn into Asuka.

But you might be right regardless. Everyone else saw someone they wanted to fuck:
*Misato saw Kaji
*Hyuga saw Misato
*Maya saw Ritsuko
*Fuyutsuki (& Gendou though he's exceptional) saw Yui
*Kiel saw God
So it'd follow that the person Rei turned into is the person one wanted to be smothered in, to die of. Hyuga saw Reis, so he must have wanted to bang Rei really bad.

But then why was he scared, and not pleased like everyone else?

Honestly this is to me one of only genuinely inexplicable things in Eva that can't be attributed to oversight.

You, I kinda think it's actually >>151590885

AFAIK, he actually didn't really love anyone in the series, so Rei didn't have anything to change into.

The main attraction of Instrumentality is being reunited with your loved ones, forever. If you have a loveless life, isn't that an eternity of loneliness? I'd be terrified if I was him.

Actually, I'd terrified if I was me.
>>
>>151591348
Nope, it's still an eternity of being with everyone in the world, with no fear of anyone pushing you away. It's just the prospect of it that might initially seem scary.

>>151591422
Fuck off /v/

Lurk more, idiot.

>But then why is he so scared?
If you were smitten with a girl and she found out you masturbate to her, wouldn't you be scared too?

Although, I don't have an answer, which is odd, because unlike Maya, Aoba isn't the idealistic type, so maybe deep within his heart, he didn't want to die or considering what Rei is, if you have nobody in your life, she is the one you see in a symbolic God like imagery, like how some experience near death and say "I saw God!" Because at the end of your existence, it is he who shall judge you.

This is death, though. That's the point- the end of suffering is the end of life, since life is struggle and differentiation. Rewatch the TV ending and read Heraclitus.
Eva has a huge amount of intertextuality with the Iliad and Odyssey, and Shinji's character and arcs are very clearly referential to Achilles', especially in EoE:

It's probably this but not for anything specific reason like >>151591348 more so just because Anno couldn't think of anyone that would make sense in this situation.

What the fuck happened to this thread?

Rei was what came for everyone.

For other people, they were given a glimpse of happiness that they'd want to embrace.

For some reason he was able to see the "real" stuff coming at him instead of a happy vision.

Fish tank Rei's were tanging everyone, and they were coming for him next.
>>
>>151591010
>>151593054
I think his perspective here is supposed to be the "objective" one. He was trying to reject instrumentality to the end, so he saw past the illusion.
>>
>>151590722
He saw rei because he didn't love anyone
>>
>>151590722
What was she going to turn into, an air guitar?
>>
>>151590722
>>151590841
>>151591010

I always took it to mean that he harboured feelings for Rei but was ashamed of being attracted to an underage girl. When they come to tang him he's freaking out because A) he's sorrounded by a bunch of smiling naked Rei's that came out of nowhere and B) its a manifestation of his deepest, forbidden desire.

But apparently the canon answer is some shit about him being a nihilist or whatever.
