why did he get such a fucked up death? like why a fucking horde of reis and not just one?

I assume he was refusing instrumentality, and when a single ghost Rei didn't work, she tried multiple ones.

Because literally in the words of Shinji
"Ayanami scares me"

I literally actually praised god after I finally got out of the stupor after watching EoE. I praised god that none of that shit was real.

They are provided their most comforting realities before dying, his was a rei harem though

What's even better is that gendo wanted instrumentality just so he could be with yui again, but yui was one of the only souls that won't be in instrumentality because she's in unit 01
>>
>>151775867
To be fair, that's the most common fan interpretation but not necessarily the only one.

You could just as easily argue he was a solid dude with a good life who didn't need any sort of salvation or deliverance. In a show where even some redshirt nobody like Makota has an issue like his crush getting railed by a super-chad like Kaji, Aoba never seems to have any sort of issues or drama. He just chills back in NERV HQ and practices strumming his guitar in between saving the world.

Aoba was a wall-adjusted normie living in a world where everyone else has huge psychological baggage and all shrinks have mysteriously disappeared. Felt pretty bad for the guy, he probably wanted to just smoke some weed and strum some tunes after he got off shift later that day.

Some people need to be broken down without love, and Rei had to sneakily use other ways to get to the person she wanted. She can only appear as people already dead or gone.

For this guy, it was fear, she just scared her way through his AT Field. With Shinji, she appeared as Asuka, who was in fact dead, and got Shinji to open up his AT Field with anger when she playacted as Asuka to infuriate him and get him to strangle her and open up his AT field with anger.

And with Gendo it was remorse.

been awhile but isn't the AT field literally "the walls people put up around themselves to push others away"? if so would't fear and anger just keep those walls up?

Instrumentality is an awful concept that should rightfully be abandoned.

It's endlessly amusing to see anime fans watch Eva and wonder what was so bad about it. Some see the irony, but many don't.

You can break them in a lot of ways. They do it all the time with bullets and brute force, it's how they kill angels. I would assume that a gap appears in your walls with any sort of heavy emotion. Wouldn't embracing your greatest love be similar to, well, embracing your greatest love, but more forcefully, and in a different region?

Perfecting humanity into a single godlike being is not an awful concept. You just can't see beyond your own shit life to accept that being part of a larger, more perfect being would be far better than your current existence even if you lose your individuality

Yep, she died. She came back after though, after instrumentality, and I think it was the real her.
>>
>>151778427
Asuka died right before Instrumentality, Joined the Tang during instrumentality and returned to the world with Shinji after, at the end of EoE.

>>151778427
Dead people get tanged too. The Asuka at the end was real, she was reconstituted via the power of her ego.

I know it's just fanfics for reference, but what happens next? Do you think they die in the wasteland? Rejoin the tang? Do others exit it, does Rei reach out to them? Are they Adam and Eve?

Because he realized what was actually happening.

Nah, they have Rei keeping an eye on them. She'll help them out with things like giving Asuka bandages.

Shinji was already tanged when Kaworu showed up

Is Rei a benevolent god?
Doesn't she carry all the human imperfection of Yui?
Does that make her more or less of a benevolent god.
Does she hate Asuka or was all that just part of one Reis experience that was washed away?
What is the being that Rei became? Was it more or less than the sum of all the angels?
>>
>>151778362
Human nature is one of struggle though. Human beings by their inherent characteristics are limited beings who must fight to conquer their environment and themselves. "Perfecting" humanity is just a byword for using them as a resource to create something entirely foreign and alien. It's the genocide of the entire human race.

Bringing things back into terms of NGE, human interaction and bonds are only worthwhile if we have to hurt each other and overcome our struggles to earn what little genuine interaction we can. Food you cook yourself tastes better than food that appears out of nowhere. Ever noticed the paradox of how people who have shit lives find their only solace in anime, but it makes their corporeal hours hell so they watch more anime but their living hours become ever worse and the cycle compounds itself? It's kind of like that. NGE was a whole show about rejecting utopian escapism and get-happy-easy schemes in favor of personal struggle and hardship, which is why I never fail to get a laugh at people on an anime forum talking about how great Instrumentality would be. It's essentially like asking "wouldn't it be great if we could all live in the anime world?" and is in direct opposition to everything NGE was about.
>>
>>151778714

Rei's soul is literally Lilith. Shinji and Asuka (and the rest of humanity) are her children. She understands this on episode 24, thanks to Kaworu/Adam.
>>
>>151778714
>What is the being that Rei became? Was it more or less than the sum of all the angels?

Probably an existence similar to that of the FAR. The whole reason they divided the two fruits was to stop people from acquiring their power after all.
>>
>>151778714
Her and Asuka were just fire and ice, and well, it's not easy to get along with Rei, and Asuka did try, but it never really worked, but I think in the end, Rei got over it.
>>
>>151778752
Is Rei not Yui at all then?
I can't quite remember where that distinction was made.
If she's Lilith than why is EVA 00 unable to control itself, if it is in fact a part of Lilith?
>>
>>151774944
>>151778307
Shit you guys, I know that fuckin' feel
>>
>>151778887
It's just too real sometimes despite being a fucking shonen cartoon about robots and aliens and teenagers

Even just thinking about some of the Misato/Ritsuko conversations or about how all the pain Rei feels is meaningless to everyone outside of her or how endlessly terrifying facing every day would be as any of the cast.
>>
>>151778886
All Eva units were derived from Adam except Unit 01, which was from Lillith. Rei can pilot Unit 01 in a way that is noted to be unusual, and this may have less to do with Yui being in there and more to do with Kaworu being able to pull off bullshit due to Adam soul/body shenanigans.

Rei was made in the image of Yui but aside form that I don't recall any sort of connection. She may be a result of Gendo vainly trying to salvage Yui out of Unit 01.
>>
>>151778886
Rei's body is a clone of Yui, apparently, or has Yui genetic code, but the soul is Lilith, same as how Kaworu's soul is Adam.
Yui's soul is in Eva-01.

Eva-00 is a clone of Adam, not Lilith. The only Eva that's a clone (not actually a clone, more like an extension/offspring) of Lilith is 01.
>>
>>151778960
What is Reis origin?
Was she literally spawned from the Lilith NERV has in the basement?
>>
>>151778980
Why does 00 go berserk then?
If its just Adam like 02 than what's the issue?
>>
>>151776358
But the Eva ends up eating half of him. He doesn't turn into tang like everyone else. Personally I think he's with Yui in unit 1
>>
>>151779062
I'm starting to get emotional for no reason and I don't like it
>>
>>151779034
At first I thought it was because Eva-00 had Naoko's soul, but it seems that theory got debunked, or doesn't have any substance.

Nobody knows, Eva-00 was just unstable because it was the first prototype.
>>
>>151779078
It just makes me angry. Gendo is such a shit dude who spends all of his time crying about missing his waifu and literally helps end the world to be with her. And he gets it with no downside while ruining everyone elses lives.
>>
>>151779107
I don't know man, the world was in a post apocalyptic recovery but was life really worth living with everything dead, fighting the near end of the world with children on the front lines, with most of the world submerged and a cowering life underground being the only feasible one. The whole show you can just feel that morale is always low, like there's an amusing depression and anxiety that pushes everyone to the edge all the time. Life needs to go on. But I feel that he might of seen an easy way out and gone for it
>>
>>151779107
Relax, that's just interpretation. In Eva if anyone tells you "this is the way it is" you need to understand that that means "I watched it and this is my opinion." Nobody every came out and said that was what that scene definitively meant.

You could also interpret it as Yui showing unusually strong aggression against a human in a way she singles no one else out. Also note other instances of her choosing Shinji over Gendo. Plus like half the man's spine and legs are left on earth as though eaten away. It's not an unambiguously happy scene.

He's a coward, instead of going on and fighting to make his own world a paradise he decided to just end the world for everyone so he could be with Yui.

>>151779227
Thats the one I believe in and a consequence of it is just that it makes Gendo look like an even worse person. And yes it isn't happy and if he does get to be with Yui then Gendo is the only one who gets a happy ending

>>151779107
Gendo didn't get to join the rest of humanity in instrumentality. I mean, it's open to interpretation but to me the symbolism of that scene is clear. He gets chomped and his body doesn't turn to tang. He gets sent to oblivion.

>Gendo: So this is my retribution. Forgive me, Shinji.

That line certainly doesn't sound like he gets to be with Yui. Gendo gets his just desserts, he is completely cut off from the rest of humanity, just like he wanted.

If its just Anno on screen making fun of his fans I'll be happy

>>151778538
People who have a strong enough sense of self (ie who reject the tang) can reform. That's the entire point of the pseudophilsophizing with the hedgehog's dilemma or w/e. Humans' AT-fields sustain physical forms so the people who who reform their AT-fields will return from the sea of LCL.
>>
>>151779487
Yeah, he's asking how they survive after they reform. They're left in a wasteland with no living things and a giant decomposing Lilith carcass in a sea of LCL

Oh, they don't.
>>
>>151779532
Yeah, this
>>
>>151779532
Do we know for sure how animals interact with instrumentality?

Also LCL is supposed to have a bunch of minerals and stuff. Maybe they can drink it like soylent.
>>
>>151779607
So they just die off? Could they die and return to the LCL and then reform again forever?
>>
>>151774617
>why did he get such a fucked up death? like why a fucking horde of reis and not just one?
Because he had no love.
>>
>>151779643
I wouldn't worry about it. It's just one of those things where the studio never thought of what would happen afterwards but it's supposed to be a good ending so they probably live.

Maybe they can just drink the LCL.

>How can Lilith's soul drive an Adam corpse?

Rei pilots the Eva like any other kid. She isn't aware that she's Lilith until the end of the series.

>Whose soul was inside that thing?

Unknown, some say Eva-00 doesn't have any soul.

>Was it Rei's? Did the original Rei have a soul?

I doubt so, "the original Rei" doesn't exist, there are many Rei vessels that are meant to carry Lilith's soul.

At the very least, poses an interesting question- what would we be if the walls of separation between you and I melted? Sure, there would be no possibility of you hurting me, but there would be no distinction between us- this barrier, which the show calls the Absolute Terror Field, is necessary to form legitimate human connection. Such a bond means vulnerability and the possibility of rejection and pain, but ultimately is worth it to derive meaning and satisfaction from life.

It's an incredibly deep and humanistic message.
