Just finished Evangelion and just have one question.
Why didn´t he get in the fucking robot?
>>
>>153645093
Because he's not a kid. Only children can pilot a giant robot.
>>
>>153645214
Not Gendō, Shinji.
He just sat there while the white Evas were slaughtering Asuka.
>>
Because it had his dead ex's soul in it and she probably wasn't too happy with him
>>
>>153645361

This >>153645357
>>
>>153645357
Were you ready to throw your life away at 14?
>>
>>153645357
He couldn't
The Red is quick setting plastic, he had no way insert the entry plug into the hole in the EVA's spine below the solid surface.

The Eva activating shattered the plastic and allowed him in, AFTER it saw Asuka die.

Yui, the Eva's Soul, needed to know for sure Shinji would sacrifice humanity for instrumentality
>>
>>153646797
Kek, yui must hate Asuka.
>>
It's funnier to make his fuccboi of a son do it instead.
>>
>>153645357
He couldn't have gotten in because the red fast-sealing plastic swallowed up UNIT 1 to its neck if you remember, it needed to break out of it before shinji could get access
>>
>>153646848
Yui needed Shinji to suffer, Just as Gendo did.

He needed to believe that Destroying all AT fields and merging humanity forcefully was the only way someone would ever understand and care for him.

With that sense of Nihilism he would willingly trigger Instrumentality.
>>
>>153645357
He couldn't physically reach Unit 01.

His mother wouldn't let him move until Asuka was dead, so Rei would sense his anguish and despair and reject Gendo in favor of Shinji.
>>
>>153647010
Nah, I think Yui just wanted Asuka to die for being such a cunt.
>>
>>153647154
Then you missed the entire point of the movie.

Also Asuka is Best girl

Were Gendo's actions justified?
I think they were, and Im still a bit pissed at seeing him get struck down like that

The parable of ikari gendo is a lesson for kids on the importance of public relations and talent management.

Robots require a human sacrifice, a human soul to activate.

Shinjis mom was one such sacrifice. The dad tried to clone the mom. The clone would share the same soul has the mom.
The son also has a compatible soul because childrens souls come from their parents souls.

The husbands soul is completely seperates from his wifes.

DUDE IT WAS IRONBIC LMAOOO
>>
>>153645361
he didn't actually kill her, he was just imagining it
>>
Why were only kids allowed to pilot the eva?
>>
>>153659716
Because.....only they had open minds to synch with it, adults are too bitter
And their moms were in it so they'd reject someone who's not their kid piloting it
I think.
>>

OOOOK LMAOOOOOOO

Actually, Rei has Lilith's soul

In short

>The best option is mother souls + child. Entry plug is something like womb so child in EVA = geting back to moms womb

>Yui want to make bright future for Shinji. Even if this means eradicating all life on earth
>Yui rejected Gendo, because he distanced everything from himself to see Yui again. But Yui wish was that Gendo should take care of Shinji. He didnt do that so she rejected him
>Shinji being in emotional distress saw Eva01 covered in shit. She resigned ebcause there were no chances to get into robot
>Only times when Eva01 moves on itself is when Shinji is in critical danger or reach critical emotional state. Hearing constantly wtf Asuka is doing got him to the point, where eva01 answered his emotional distress
>It is possible that Eva01 aka Yui waited until Asuka gets rekt, because Shinji woulkd stop isntrumentality. When Shinji saw butchered Asuka and realized there's nothing to save and protect anymore, he gives up
>but in the end, he rejects instrumentality
>>
>>153659716
Only people born post-second impact are able to synchronize with the EVAs.
>>
>>153650410
No. He deserved worse.

He was a monster through and through.
>>
>>153653398
They require a human soul, but that's not what happened with Yui. She turned into tang on purpose and could've come out at any time.
>>
>>153650410
It was not justified from the perspective of an outsider.

But if some weird experiment took my hard won waifu that I married during the apocalypse from me, I would follow in his footsteps down to the dots on the i's and crosses on the t's.
>>
>>153660401
Yui for worst anime mom?
>>
>>153660567
She did everything to protect Shinji and humanity from third impact.

She is one of the few unambiguously "good" characters in NGE.
>>
>>153660641
I've seen this interpretation of her that she's actually a manipulative megolomaniac that just wants to exist as a symbol of humanity's greatness
>>
>>153660641
She intentionally left Shinji behind as a child to live for eternity in a giant robot.
>>
>>153660792
So? He had Asuka. Time to man up and nut in that bitch.
>>
>>153660733
That's the correct interpretation. I mean not necessarily a megalomaniac but she put her whole transhumanist schtick above everything including Shinji, Gendo and the lives of everyone else in humanity
>>
>>153660980
She intentionally let Asuka die.
>>
>>153661022
Third Impact was an inevitability. That's why SEELE triggered Second Impact, so they could buy some time. Her plan from the get go would be to use the EVA as an ark for humanity's souls when Third Impact occurred.

Gendo was ready to sell the human race out to be with her forever.
>>
>>153660980
He didn't give a shit about a feminist cunt like Asuka.
>>
>>153660792
As a scientist, she wanted to be a relict of humanity, evidence that they existed even after 100000000years
She was from SEELE, she know about instrumentality project, proposed a direct entry to the core in eva (and not in adam-based prototype, but lilith based), to "show Shinji bright future". When 3rd impact happens, she fucks over Gendo and Seele, by giving Shinji ability to choose the fate for humanity. When Shinji rejects instrumentality, she ends it, unplug spear and fly into the space as a 'humanity relict"
her quote about Shinji ' If he wants to survive, anywhere could be like Heaven. He has a chance to be happy anytime because he's alive"

She's one of that "crazy scientist moms" who would and will rain apocalypse upon everything just to ensure that child is happy.
>>
>>153661118
>for humanity's souls
No, it was only her soul that mattered. Or at least she took on the whole Jesus complex thing by herself, "sacrificing" herself but without giving a shit about what would happen to anyone else. This is pretty clear when you watch both the flashback on the show and her speech in the movie. She "cares" about Shinji, but only to the extent that she gives him warm regards as she fucks off to outer space by herself. It was never about having any other soul than Yui's on EVA 01, at least for her version of the plan. SEELE obviously wanted in on the ride, but it never happened.
>>
>>153660372
>>153659716
So what about asuka? If the theory about parents is true how was she able to? And shinjis classmate?
>>
>>153661189
She abandoned him and left him with fucking Gendo, fucking up his childhood which is the reason for most of his problems.

She's a shit.
>>
>>153661243
What do you mean? The EVAs they piloted always had the soul of their parents. In Rei's case it most probably had Rei I's soul which is a fragment of Lilith's soul
>>
>>153661189
She waited for Asuka to die so that Shinji could be mentally fucked before helping Shinji so that she could ensure that Instrumentality was launched, She doesn't seem like the best mother
>>
>>153661243
What do you mean? Both of them had their mom's souls in their Evas (ok Asuka's Eva only had half of her mom's soul)
>>
>>153661258
She trusted Gendo that he'll take care. but he dont.

And as i said, she's a scientist. In this wicked mindset she thinks that longstanding plan to fuck over SEELE and make his child God with the right of choosing the fate of humanity (while he suffers severe trauma, being a broken kid without parents, loosing everything he cares for) is better than being a normal mom who can just hug her kid when he's crying.
>>
>>153645093
because Gendo was a shit father to him
>>
>>153661337
I accept that posibility too

But now im not sure. Any official interpretation/interview exist to support this? Just asking
>>
>>153661375
Everyone in Eva is crazy, what's new
>>
>>153661461
Only penpen is most sane and maybe Hikari and that glasses-kun from Shinji class
>>
>>153661375
Doubt it, Yui knew more than anyone what a massive fuck up Gendo was.

She knew she was going to get sucked up in unit 01 and MADE Shinji watch.

She's a fucking shit.
>>
>>153661600
That's kinda harsh. She was just misguided
>>
>>153661768
Misguided?

She made her son watch her die. That's not misguided.

>>
>>153662106
He was still negatively affected by the lack of a mother growing up, and she also didn't help Shinji when he wanted the to get the Eva out of the Bakelite.
>>
>>153662247
True. She is a shitty mom but she thought she was doing the right thing
>>
>>153662516
The Boston Strangler thought he was doing the right thing. You wouldn't call him "misguided"
>>
>>153662117
>just as autistic
He's even more autistic, Shinji had at least some reason to do the things he did due to his upbringing and so on.
Gendo's line of reasoning was basically
>I wanna see my dead wife back, even if it costs everyone's lives
>>
>>153645093
It had to be the kids.
>>
>>153665597

EVA = human body
core soul e.g. Yui = Id
pilot e.g. Shinji = Ego
NERV etc. communicating with the pilot = Superego
>>
>>153661243
if you've not seen the DC episodes I guess you probably wouldn't have picked up on it but Asuka's mother was also involved in a contact experiment and only half her soul was retrieved (leaving the maternal part in Unit 02's core), making her go crazy and neglect Asuka for a doll

all of the classmates have dead mums whose souls have been put into EVAs, notice Toji etc. talk about their fathers and uncles but never their mothers
>>
>>153661485
>tfw Kensuke never got to pilot an Eva
>>
>>153660269
>Yui want to make bright future for Shinji. Even if this means eradicating all life on earth
I don't think this is the case, unless I missed something. Everyone already thought humanity was fucked because the Dead Sea Scrolls said the third impact was coming. Yui played the long con to keep shinji 'alive,' because in her mind, that was goodness in itself. She didn't care about what he actually experienced, so it doesn't make sense for her to reject gendo based on his failure as a father.
>>

I'm honestly kind of surprised there aren't more Ritsukofags. Sure, she didn't get as much screen time as the main three, but she still got enough character development that you'd think more people would consider her a favorite.

Yui is a monster and the series main antagonist despite basically never appearing.

She deliberately drove Gendo mad and abandoned Shinji just to further her instrumentality objective. She kills gendo when he finally reunites with her as he's no longer useful. She's the one who made Gendo interested in the instrumentality project in the first place.

All so she could become a god-like being and the last remnant of humanity.

the real question is why do people still talk about this fucking show? Is it just for the memes and waifu wars?

No one ever talks about abenobashi which was a better gainax show and no one ever talks about G gundam which was a better mecha show.

I'm pretty sure its just memes and waifu shitters
