childhood is having a crush on asuka
adolescence is switching to rei
adulthood is realizing mitsuko makes the most sense
Wrong. Adulthood is realizing that all the characters in the show are fucked in the head and beyond saving and that you better don't get involved with that kind of people unless you want to wake up one morning without a penis.
I know it's valentines day, but try to go easy on the booze.
adulthood is realizing Suzuhara is a best anon.
adulthood is realizing eva is overrated and actually not that good
Transcendence is realising geometry is an best
Adulthood is not bringing up your opinions on your favourite chinese cartoons in unrelated discussions.
Misato's cool. But Rei is better.
>Anno: Sadists, without question, go to Rei, because of their sadistic desires. I believe that masochists go to Asuka. And, there is a tendency for women of the same generation and people who are children mentally to go to Misato.
Get a grip friendo. We have multiple daily threads about a show that was on 20 years ago. Dont you ever wonder what you are not getting??
COOOOOOOOOOOOOCKS GIVE ME COOOOOOOOOOOOOOCKS
Sadamoto says a similar thing as well:
>Sadamoto: I have become popular thanks to Rei, but for me, she is a character I created by drawing on an embarassing, messy part, something like a sadistic desire, within myself. She's a type of character I've never drawn before now, and I had all sorts of worries while creating her. Asuka, in this sense, is a character where the masochistic part of me emerges.
Rei is for alphas
Asuka for betas
Misato for children who've yet to grow up
...picture somewhat related.
I guess you are right. I don't do this kind of posting often. Maybe I am just too jaded and bitter. Yeah, I think eva is bad. But if you enjoy it, if anything I should envy you.
Have fun with it.
She's a Rei fan as well, and keeps Rei figures in her room.
Then both Anno and what'shisname are also sort of insane, but you got that sorta covered with Anno at least with the overlap.
MOCK U SHE ROCK U
>am a sadist
Why can't sadists love and admire other sadists?
Enjoy your alcoholic hag breath. Just look at the state of this oral hygiene.
It's perfect. Post more.
This doesn't count Shikinami because she doesn't have any tragic backstroy. She's a girl-next-door type.
She's also getting fucked silly by Mari every night
No she isn't
She is desu
She's been sharing a bed with a lesbo for 14 years straight, definitely been converted by now
Misato is honest to god one of the most relatable characters on the show, and probably one of the sanest. She's got issues, but she's dealing with them a hell of a lot better than most of the other cast is. Plus she would be a 10/10 drinking buddy and a devil in the sack. If she could cut down on the drinking I would totally marry her and be her house husband.
>Personally witnesses the end of the world and the death of her father, goes mute for YEARS and fucks her way through life as a coping mechanism
She is second only to Gendo in the fucked up sweepstakes
>It's also really common among military personnel when there isn't enough space for everyone to have their own bedroom.
confirmed to have never been in the military
besides making asuka a lesbian is the kind of thing that gets writers getting death threats in japan. not happening.
besides she always thinking Shinji in 3.33, Mari even teases her about it. Mari is probably near 40 now consideirng she worked with Yui on the project.
Hey man, use whatever you can to convince yourself.
Just don't come crying to me when final comes out.
>Personally witnesses the end of the world and the death of her father
And managed to make a life for herself afterwards
>goes mute for YEARS
And then recovers, becoming an outgoing, exuberant woman.
>and fucks her way through life as a coping mechanism
I want this meme to die. She specifically states that she only smokes after sex and that Kaji is the only person to see her like that. Kaji is the only man she's ever done it with. And at least she has good taste in men, far more than can be said for Ritsuko slutting it up with Gendo.
They ain't going to make an established character into a dyke, many... MANY people will be very angry.
1. No they won't, the Japanese fanbase isn't the west
2. Anno wouldn't care either way, he's gotten plenty of death threats before and does what he wants
Not that anon, but Evangelion has become gay propaganda now:
Japan is just a tiny island nation with a shitty currency. We're a rich country that protects your country that can't protect itself from being glassed away by North Korea. Besides, Anno runs a business. He wouldn't want to make a decision that doesn't make alot of money.
Western waifufags self insert, and the wouldn't be happy with the result with Mari getting paired with Asuka. The best eva girl.
All hail to the leader of the free world.
I was talking about waifus anon
Anno doesn't care about the West
>He wouldn't want to make a decision that doesn't make alot of money
He made 3.33 knowing it would not be well received. He really doesn't give two fucks.
Bullshit, every company exists to make money. The board of directors can fire his ass if they think he's not doing things that are not profitable.
Doesn't really matter how racist Anno is.
Literally, LITERALLY cannot deny this
Anyone found it creepy how Rei is the reincarnated Yui and Shinji basically has tang sex with her while they are inside the LCL egg in EoE?
They wouldn't dare.
Khara is his company, Eva is his series. He has more than enough money and success to end it however he wants.
He constantly tells his fanbase to fuck off, what makes you think he won't do it again? Big league, considering this is the last time he'll be able to.
Apple fired Steve Jobs, no person is untouchable.
Also he said he wants to appeal to a global market, not just ot japanese:
"In the interview, he describes proactively promoting the company and the project at events abroad, and how he wanted to build more recognition amongst fans that “this is the company that makes Evangelion.” In particular, he notes how the data showed that the ME! ME! ME! short was a surprise hit, especially in North America and Europe where the view numbers were a different order of magnitude. It allowed him to think that there is still potential in this type of content and still markets left to tap"
Eva 01 > Misato from 2.22 > Asuka from 2.22 > Rei from 2.22 > shit >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Asuka >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Rei
>we live in a degenerate society where women are sluts and not ashamed of it as you grew up you took off the purity googles and realized that a slutty woman is the norm,thus you picked a slutty woman with a huge whole who fills it with any warm body even a penguin.
I am so glad we are now in the best time line that will correct this shit
The only people I know who choose Misato are contrarian and/or faggots. In my honest opinion Evangelion is the only show I've watched where I think all the girls are pretty bad, I'd rather just bro it up with Kaji.
Childhood is thinking the giant robots are cool
Adolescence is feeling depressed over EOE and saying it "changed" you
Adulthood is knowing the entire show is painfully obvious at this point, that the fans are obsessed with making shit up and repeating the same bland observations day in and day out, and wishing you were watching demi-chan instead
The crushingly lonely and alcoholic middle aged woman who's unable to interface with other people unless it's through sex?
None of the girls in EVA are good partners. Each one has problems, and it's part of maturity to see past a pleasing appearance to see what lies within.
The only girl without massive problems was maybe Yui, and she's dead.
Childhood is having a crush on Kagome.
Adolescence is jerking off to C.C.
And adulthood is crying yourself to sleep because you know you'll never get to fuck either.
being an adult is posting smut in these kinds of threads
you are like a baby
Enlightenment is realizing who the best option was all along.
Okay, so Anno talks a lot about marketing and product placement, but he doesn't devote a single sentence to the content that's supposedly behind that marketing.
If his business interest was in satellite parts or medical imaging instead of animation, the interview would have been exactly the same. He gives zero shits about the art or the story, to paraphrase the Master someone else can do that under his supervision. Even Animator Expo, which was supposed to be a way for young people to do something interesting and get into the industry, turned out to be nothing more than an elaborate ad for his production company.
What a fucking Jew.
Reverse Asuka and Rei make the most sense.
>wanting an alcoholic who can't cook nor clean after themselves
All of them just need a hard dickin' my man.
What if there was a foursome with them all?
>ywn have a sex-crazed alcholic cake as your mommywife
Adulthood is realizing they're all fucking bonkers and hanging out with Toji and Kensuke
Any more creepy than the fact that Rei is already his half siter/half mother?
>ven Animator Expo, which was supposed to be a way for young people to do something interesting and get into the industry
That's wrong though, thanks to Animator Expo we got Yuri on Ice and Dragon Dentist greenlighted and made.
>what would have happened if she was the one to come out of tang
>I bet you two would talk a lot wouldn't you
Evangelion is actually even worse than that. They aren't satisfied with just selling merchandise, they want to sell it of particular characters, Asuka in specific. So they end up undermining Rei because she's more popular, while also making Asuka a copy of Rei in some regards.
>Rei because she's more popular
Why are you posting worthless online poll from some random russian site, anon? You know they aren't wroth much. But let's humour it anyway, Rei is still #2 in your image, and this is many years later after the last Rebuilds, meaning they've had an effect on popularity. Now if Rei is #2 despite being fiercely undermined by her own creator, then put 1 & 2 together and guess how popular she'd be in that russian poll of yours if she was actually treated like the real McCoy.
Yeah, Asuka has way more figurines than Rei. They are trying really hard to make her more popular.
I don't really watch anime anymore and don't follow the news and i don't want to create separate thread to ask, so i'll ask here: When's the closest big anime event where we can see/hear more info on 4.0.
Like they've said nothing about it since release of 3.0
>Yeah, Asuka has way more figurines than Rei.
Only in the past four-five years or so. Rei still has more figures total, but recently they've been making tons of new Asuka figures - it has a lot to do with there being nothing to make Rei figures of.
You've been lied to. No such thing.
They showed promo images of it during Khara's 10th anniversary
Funny how Asuka only started winning after 2.22. Rebuild confirmed for popularity contest psyop
>makes Asuka a minor character, bed-ridden half way through the movie
>makes everything about Rei, sacrificing Misato's relationship with Shinji that was fleshed out in NGE
Yeah, no, they were pushing Rei and fans got sick of it. Rei was only popular in NGE due to her "mystery", but now that the mystery is gone no one gives a shit about her anymore.
The polls prove it, Rei lost fans, which is why she didn't remain at the top.
>>makes Asuka a minor character, bed-ridden half way through the movie
Not true. Asuka was a major character in 3.33, and wasn't bed-ridden half through the movie at all, it was only near the end.
The Rei bit isn't true either. Take off the delusional Asukafag goggles, please. Asuka was, even according to the writers:
pushed as a "nice girl" as opposed to the original.
>For that reason, by boldly portraying Asuka as a good character
>The polls prove it, Rei lost fans, which is why she didn't remain at the top.
is also true. Anno has over many years reduced Rei's role, even in 2.22, where 3.33 is extremely negative towards Rei. There simply isn't any point in being a Rei fan if you're an Evangelion fan, because you always know what you'll get: Asuka pandering and Rei shoved aside or put down.
This is why there's more Rei fans in the wild than in actual eva fanbases, think evageeks or 2ch. More Asukafans than Rei fans there.
>Not true. Asuka was a major character in 3.33,
also, have a look at this image:
Rei's popularity is still up there, far stronger than even Shinji or Asuka's, when we consider the original version. The "Asuka" people like is Shikinami, not the original whom most seem to vehemently deny exists.
Asuka's is just a girl next door type now, althogu still tsundere.
Not true either. It astounds me of how much people try to do damage control for Asuka, not that I accuse you of it, but damn, remember 3.33 for a bit:
She has super powers, angel eyes and a 14 year long past for people to fantasize about. She's no longer a girl next door, she's the asukafag wet dream.
hm, almost want a thread about this
>Anno explained that the TV version of Rei was overwhelmingly more attractive because she was a mystery, however, by the time that the series was complete, she was known to the fans. In light of that, the movies opted to work more with Asuka and the fans caught on.
So what do we know happened? We know that
A - Despite what Anno suggests, Rei was more popular than Asuka for more than a decade after NGE ended (and still is, if we consider just NGE)
B - Rei is a character that is more featured in the Rebuilds, and it is not possible that Anno could have worked more with Asuka
So what did the fans catch on to? It can't be the great character development of Asuka, because she's a pretty bad character in Rebuild. It can't be more screentime or focus.
Therefore, it can only be that they worked with Asuka to make her more popular, by erasing negative traits from the original depiction and adding new traits the old and new fans will like, increasing Asuka's fanbase. I'd argue that simultaneously, they've done the opposite to Rei. Not only have they directly attacked the mystery of Rei by forcing in answers to them, they've also deliberately chosen the answers that cater to Asuka fans - despite how these answers make no sense.
Well she was just acting tsundere because its "cute" in 3.33, not for the reasons in NGE (troubled past).
Yep, Asuka now can talk to and get close to be people. Her attitude is just there for otaku "cute" reasons.
In NGE her attitude was her way of pushing people away from hurting her.
>tfw you realize that in Magma Diver Asuka shouted "this is the kind of stuff you have Shinji for" because she wanted to see him blown up like a balloon.
I wish we got more time to discuss the themes and ideas in Evangelion instead of copy-pasting the same comments over and over again.
Like how Eva is one of the few shows where technology is shown to be (to use filthy liberal terms) enabling and empowering. It becomes an extension of the human body rather than a replacement. And how the same technology can become a source of anxiety if you just change the context sufficiently. No wonder the Master used womb symbolism here. It's always a two way interaction in the show. Man and machine are always trying to affect and communicate with one another. Victory over angels only comes when they are synchronised and form something that is bigger than the sum of its parts.
>14 years of fuckery
>yell about antabaka in space, nobody will hear your scream in space
>Baka Shinji shows in 4 seconds how shit is done
>come to see him
>Shinji start talking about Ayanami
>someone got massive butthurt over this
Confirming she's not interested in him, which Asuka proved.
And they've been having hot sweaty lesbian sex for 14 years
Yeach, thats why durning 4th impact Mari tells Shinji to go save "princess". And later 'Princess" says to Shinji "you didnt come to help me"
Also angry bitch forgot that he already saved her sorry ass in space
>be in relationship
>dont use her name not even a single time
And well, again shipping faggotry, give us a break
yeach, also Toji younger sister in SHinji age are acting more mature than 28 years old Asuka and much older Misato. Only Ritsuko act as herself all the time
Its seriously fucked up, if Asuka wants to go with Rei and Shinji to 'where lilim landed" after they openly stated that they'll kill him for any strange action and later actually tried to kill him
Your English is so terrible I can't even tell what you're talking about.
No girl remains a virgin for 14 years, Asuka is horny as fuck, she definitely licked Mari's carpet and it was confirmed since they're sharing the same bed.
You think a lesbo like Mari is gonna let that fine piece of ass go untouched? They've been going at it like rabbits, that's why they have pet names for each other.
Yeah, she entered his bed to talk to him.
She's been sleeping with Mari for 14 years, a bit different.
Mari is a lesbian, she's definitely converted her. They've been alone for 14 years after all.
In short, only mature person in first half is Toji younger sister, that doesnt act as angry unresponsive bitch all the time to guy who was in coma for 14 years and dont know shit about what happened. And Ritsuko is Ritsuko as always.
They all said that they gonna kill him if he tried to do something suspicious, and later (when piloting "EVA13" ) actively try to kill him.
And at the end "no problem, come with me if you want to live"
Ah fuck, not this shit again, how many times in 2 years people explain this. Its useless to discuss it now
No she entered his bed because she was lonely, she couldn't sleep that night.
>Mari is a lesbian, she's definitely converted her. They've been alone for 14 years after all.
fuck off, if your going to shitpost at least use the movies as reference not headcanon.
No I don't, he's a little bitch faggot who talks and acts like a girl. Fuck him.
Asuka made the right choice by being with Mari.
Yeah, she was lonely. And now she isn't by sleeping with Mari for 14 years. Confirmed girlfriend.
>Your English is so terrible I can't even tell what you're talking about.
So, if I sleep in dorms with 29 other guys, using double-beds, it makes us all gay couples? Similiar with shover. You know, all of us naked in one room?
>call someone on grammar
>fail to comprehend basic things
>force headcanon shipfaggotry over things in 3.33
How come that i can understand what anon >>153529152 says and I cant understand what the fuck are you talking about anything not shown in actual film
>tfw coming up on 20 years with my waifu
Hang in there, bro, and ignore those awful 3d addicted normalfags. They do not belong here.
If you sleep in the same bed with a confirmed gay guy for 14 years despite there being another empty bed in the room that you can use, yeah, you're a fag.
Just like Asuka.
No substance, no conversation, no discussion, just crap. I am so done with this fandom.
Maybe I go despise mankind somewhere else.
All of this is like an old forum which most people have deserted. The kind where you only have the same two people posting links in the music and "funny" videos section, and never talking to one another.
Or like an empty jazz lounge on a tuesday. Just a huge, dark space filled with the smell of cigarettes and piss. No one inside but two or three local drunks that have the same inane ramble every day, or possibly some loners that came with the specific intent to be alone, each sitting in a different corner.
i think that can be extended to anyone, not just women. people can barely even understand themselves; it's impossible to understand someone else. there's entire worlds inside every person, and you'll come to know maybe 5% of it. which is what i think eva is really about, and why it still gets talked about (even if it's mostly down to waifu wars now)
Its been nearly 22 fucking years you autists.
>adulthood is realizing mitsuko makes the most sense
becasue she is a woman, not a girl, and her lingering feelings for her college lover, the most common relatetable complex to have.
also she is alot more fun.
Rei is the best female Evangelion character.
I think Asuka and Kaworu fans should acknowledge that.
No, Rei is not the best Evangelion character. Asuka is much more interesting and Kaworu is the most mysterious one. And I'm holding this opinion for 10 years straight. Rei has the best seiyuu though
>adulthood is settling for heavily used goods
So at the start of Rebuild?
Bing normal and well adjusted is being sexually attracted to and wanting to screw all of them. That's how libido works. But then there's that voice that tells you how it'd be wrong, and most importantly that not possible at all since they're cartoons. It's the good o'l
as we all know it. Just pictures emulating real life.
But aside from this, Rei is the best of them all, being the most precious thing that could be translated to real life, and the character with who we all share a connection with and a need to understand and emulate ourselves if we want to improve ourselves. Rei is hope for understanding and self-improvement. She is therefore the best.
>literal Rebuild baby thinking his opinion matters
In some ways, I pity you for being as brainwashed as you are. I can teach you the ways of understanding Evangelion, little one.
>forgetting that 1.11 has drastic changes to the original six episodes by shoving Lilith in there and voiding Misato's quest for the truth by letting her know from the start
>forgetting that 1.11 also has Kaworu in it
You're a child of your time, unfortunately. It's a time where Khara was created, and they started rewriting the characters to make Rei look pathetic and uninspiring, while doing the opposite for the two characters you are fond of, Kaworu and Asuka. Isn't that suspicious? Isn't there a small part of you even that that makes you doubt that you're being played? You know, in the original story, Asuka never understood that she was being played or misled, even when confronted about it by Shinji. It's sort of poetic that an Asuka fan would do the same.
But I digress, the elements that make Kaworu and Asuka interesting in 2007-2017 are elements that are blatantly stolen from Rei herself. That and Rei's character in the original story had a development and character background that actually worked with these mysterious and interesting elements, which makes Rei's character not just superficially interesting such as it is with Kaworu or ASuka, but it makes it genuine, solid.
So when people say Asuka or Kaworu are interesting, they really mean that they enjoy the fanservice they are getting. There isn't any meaning to them, nor is there any interest in them beyond wanting more of them.
>implying those are sufficient changes
>implying Kaworu's cameo even mattered
>implying character interactions with Rei weren't romanticized even more
>implying her design wasn't enhanced as well
>implying I even watched it 2007
See, I'm not even going to read the wall you wrote because I know it's all worthless shitposting
Those are sufficient changes. Positive change is more important than recreating the original, and Rei in 1.0 has nothing new added besides slight redesigns, while Asuka and Kaworu has substantially more empowering changes. Where Rei regresses or remains stagnant, they improve.
It's the same in non-Rebuild Khara media such as Campus Apocalypse.
