Just finished eoe last night so I still have a couple questions

Why did the new versions of the Eva's not require a pilot? I assumed they were being piloted by dummy plugs but all the rei clones were destroyed.

Also, what was the point of the dummy plugs if the white Eva's make it pretty clear they aren't required?

Man, Asuka being pregnant with Shinji's kid and then them both proposing to each other while she's being killed had me stoned for months.
I don't remember any other anime attempting this.
Though Rei's attempted suicide was more freaky, but not as emotionally scarring as this.

Oh boy, a shitty Eva thread, I legitimately needed this today.

I haven't rewatched Eva in fucking years, well over 7, and besides vaguely rebuilding (pun intended cause I'm a faggot) my knowledge to just barely understand the movies, all the stuff that made Eva fun an interesting is gone from my mind; I don't remember why I personally liked it, I don't remember why it's so widely praised and what it's breakthroughs and merits are, I don't remember any of the crazy theories about the ending, EoE and what's going on between all the characters. It's just Eva, I have my impressions and vague recollections but I've been living with it for over a decade.

A friend of mine has just finished the TV series today and is about the watch EoE tonight. He HATES the show. He says its too depressing, it never got happy and that it was all boring, no questions were answered and that he doesn't give a shit about the character's mental issues or why they're all weak willed losers. I didn't want to spoil the movie so I told him nothing, but I know the conversation we're gonna have tonight is going to be annoying because it's fucking EoE, there will be no answers. I get the impression a lot of why he doesn't like it is because it's not Gurren Lagann, so there's no accounting for shit taste, but you sort of understand where I'm coming from when I'm going to have to try and talk to someone about a show that's just so distant from me.

So I guess I'm requesting you guys to tell me why you liked Eva, what made Eva good and great, where it's flaws lie and maybe provide some answers for some of the show's questions that my friend can't think for himself. I don't usually do these long posts and stuff because who fucking cares, but I'd appreciate some of your thoughts, recaps, impressions, etc. Thanks again, and sorry for the lengthy post.

Eva is just a ripoff of several older works that Anno liked when he was younger.
All those works are leagues better than Eva.

People who praise Eva have likely never seen those older works, in fact Eva may be the oldest Anime they've ever seen.

Tell your friend it's overrated and it's good taste on his part that he doesn't like it.
>>
>>152465823
I just finished EoE last night and the TV show the night before

I loved it for the same reasons your friend hated it. I loved the absolutely bleak tone and the way most of the characters reacted in eerily realistic ways to their situations. Stuff like shinji screaming his head off or all 3 of the Eva's pilots becoming week and depressive. It's very realistic to how a few high schoolers would react.

The lack of answers too. I like shows leaving things up to interpretation, and while I think EoE took it maybe one step too far, it only made the ending more enjoyable for me.

Why I like it
>insanely realistic characters for its time
>good design

>amazing direction
>visual medium explored thoughtfully, many scenes/frames mean more than we think

Why I hate it
>no conclusion in relation to characters (in EoTV)
>too depressing (still can't get over it)
>EoE has too dark ending that makes it different to accept the positive message it carries

>>152465975
The TV ending I think was a much more satisfying ending than EoE. Congratulations actually drives the positive points home, but also doesnt make you want to kill yourself. It also confirms a happy emotional ending for at least shinji.

I almost wish I watched the final 2 episodes after EoE.

Except there are multiple scenes where Shinji and Asuka interact that are purposely ambiguous and make you wonder if there isn't more to them.

They both are pilots and horny teenagers, of course sexual and affectional tension rise between them, especially given their background. Shinji sees Asuka as an anchor of the strength he never had, that's why he broke loose when she isn't there for him after Kaworu dies. As for her, he's the only guy around except for Kaji, and she is forced to acknowledge him as the show goes, given he is a more talented pilot than her, which deeply wounds her inside, but also challenges her views of him
>>
>>152465975
Are you me ? It took me a whole year to get over EoE when I watched it and now I can think back on it and listen to komm susser todd without wanting to put a bullet in my ear. All the rest is spot on too
>>
Same anon here who only finished last night. Still got a question or two.

When does the last episode take place in relation to EoE? I understand the episode is all in shinjis head, but the congratulations scene implied he found some emotional ground to stand on. The ending of EoE of him choking out asuka implies none of this, and hes clearly still an emotional wreck by the time the movie ends. When is he supposed to find three answers he does in the last episode? At death?
>>
>>152466428
Find the answers*
>>
>>152466260
>i sees Asuka as an anchor of the strength he never had
Kek, are you joking?
He sees her break down and be weak when he finds her crying for her mother.
He doesn't have any sympathy for her whatsoever.
>>
>>152466428
The last episode stands during Instrumentation (when they're all turned into tang). Shinji finds the answers and actually rejects instrumentation, that's why he goes back to the real world.

As for the choking, theory goes that way: when he strangles her in the instrumentation, she doesn't fight back, because you can't harm anyone anymore. When they're on the beach, he might test if he's still in the false world or not. Seeing her react as the "real" Asuka stops him
>>
>>152466571
>He doesn't have any sympathy for her whatsoever.
Yeah that's why he goes for her in the hospital and breaks down and start 3rd impact in EoE when he sees what happened to her.

Retard
>>
>>152466428
EoTV and EoE are supposedly two alternative endings
BUT you can also assume that they take place in Shinji's head during Instrumentality, where later he comes to the conclusion about accepting the reality as it is with all the pain and suffering it carries along. He finally grows up, "becomes a man", leaves the Eva (which symbolized him leaving his mother and being ready to open up to people and live on his own) and makes a decision not only for himself but for the whole humanity.
As for the ending, no one knows for certain, but its assumed that Shinji has been on this shore for a long time (gravemarkers and Misato's rusty medallion confirming this) and didn't believe his eyes (especially after seeing quantum Rei) that Asuka's real. That's why he tried to strangle her, to feel the rejection of "other" once again. Instead though, he feels acceptance when she carries his cheek. He breaks down realizing what he tried to do. Asuka's final line is ambiguous, but its assumed from Yuko's words that she's referring to Shinji's little jerk off in hospital
>>
>>152466657
He masturbates over her body in the hospital, so he has no respect for her.
Asuka even says this to him in EoE.
>>
>>152466571
b8
>>
>>152466701
That's a clear sign of disrespect for sure, but that doesn't mean he has no respect for her whatsoever. You seem to forget the disposition of minf Shinji has at the start of EoE, he doesn't do this to piss her off in purpose, and he immediately realizes what he's done when he stares at his hand full of semen

You think most /a/nons wouldn't have real love for a qt girl who suddenly came up and gave the them affection they've been craving their whole life?

It's the same with Shinji. It's actual love, just a bit shoujo-esque and idealized.

There is a difference between being friendly like misato/his classmates and showing actual physical affection like kaworu.

>he keeps trying to choke her to death, with the full intention of killing her
Oh so you're just baiting

>>152466960
Of course, because Shinji deeply craves for affection, but going for Kaworu the moment he sees him doesn't negate all the things that happened prior and after him, and the closest person he was with in those periods is none other than Asuka.

I remember reading the manga first, and was actually quite surprised how much more prevalent and important to Shinji Asuka is in the original, that's one of the thing that I found the most different. It's mostly little things, and interaction, but Rei is really less on the front line in the anime than she is in the manga and rebuild
>>
>>152467123
There's definitely something wrong with Middle-aged Japanese men

>>
>>152467095
Perhaps. I think we have just different definitions of "real" love. I see actual love as complex and emotional, while what shinji feels is like you said, idealized and simple. He only wants him because he enjoyed being wanted. Again, I don't see that as actual love, but I can see why someone would

>>152467095

>>152467157
Anno said he wanted the main character of Eva to be a girl but Sadamoto made him change it to a boy.

So they compromised with a sort of girl-boy hybrid that is Shinji Ikari.
>>
>>152467098
>physical affection
Mate I think you mean deep affection.

Anno wrote Kaworu to be special to Shinji. Misato cared for Shinji and they have several heartfelt talks for way longer than Shinji knew Kaworu. But he didn't love her. Shinji loved Kaworu because Kaworu loved him.
>>
>thread slowly descends into kawoshin vs asushin
ok-ok, can we stop now? Yes, Shinji loved Kaworu, Kaworu was literally the Jesus of Eva, it's normal, but Asuka was really important to him too and he loved her to some degree too
Can we agree on this and just shut up?

>>152467173
Love is one of the simplest emotions a human can have.

You can fall in love with a person at first sight for the most shallow of reasons, doesn't not make it genuine love.

I think the fact that Shinji still continued to love Kaworu after he betrayed him and died proves it was real on his part.
>>
>>152467173
Not him but I agree with him. Real, pure love is the idealized one, the one that you imagine when you readlove story, something perfect and inconditionnal, continuous and eternal, not withering with time, as you and the other people change.

Of course, "real" love, in the sense of the love you encounter in the real world of everyday, is closer to what you describe, something complex, imperfect and everchanging
>>
>>152467207
Asuka was important to him, but it's obvious he didn't love her.
It was evidently only lust he felt for her.

Asuka even says this to him in the kitchen scene in EoE.

>>152467299
The whole point of the kitchen scene and Instrumentality was that everything was out in the open.

You can't hide anything now that all of humanity is one being, everything that was said and done in there was the truth.

I already told that we were not sure if it was the real Asuka or just a scene in Shinji's mind. The superposition of emotions in the scene and the unsaid things he chooses to hide makes one wonder if it's really taking place in the instrumentality.
Then, again, we know that Shinji, and Asuka, are hardass loners who are afraid to become intimates with other people because they're too afraid to suffer from it. So, as usual, Shinji is preparing the field, making the lists of everything he's done wrong and that she could reproach to him, jacking off to her in coma being top.
Strangling her can be both seen as a sign of him losing to her, resorting to violence is the sign of his weakness, and his unability to reply to what she says, or a victory, he comes to the conclusion that she's not the real one and tries to destroy this Asuka that poisons him with her venomous fangs.

Shinji never wanted to kill her, and that's why he stops at the end, when she gently puts her hand on his cheek as he starts to cry. They just have a fuck huge hard time to overcome their own problems and start closing the distance, which they maybe finally do in this scene.

But as a stupid waifufag trying to step on his "rival" to make his own look better, you wouldn't care about that anyway
