>times Shinji has held Asuka: 0
Even after 5 billion years, when the Earth, the Moon, and even the Sun have disappeared, it will Rei vs Asuka threads will exist as long as even one person still lives. It will be very lonely, but as long as that one person still lives It will be the eternal proof that humankind has existed...

Hey, that is up by the way.
That anon who offered to translate other specials never sent me the email, are you sitll around?
well Anno kinda brought it on himself with Kaworu

Fapping to her felt better than fapping to any of the other eva girls ever did.
She's a fucking slut I'm going to get my fucking revenge
What about that time Fuyutsuki dressed Shinji up as his mom to take sexy pictures of him.
She is a rather young wench, don;t you think? By the time she is 20, her pussy is going to be so wide from BBC.
I was once an Asukafag, but I have retired after find some better girls in other animes
An attention whore, she's basically a 14 year old Misato.
If that's true, why do people consider her best girl. Asuka is a slut and is constantly portrayed in a bad light.
I can't believe people consider her a good waifu.
Is this really the new low fujoshi are stepping to? Why can't you all just fuck off back to tumblr permanently. /a/ is bad enough as is without your slagbeast asses lumbering around like lost dinosaurs. Fuck off.
>Sluts are replacing pure girls
And these sluts require a new caliber of man to tame them
Its not a meme, its real. Kurisu is better red headed tsundere than Asuka, and is purer too! The good thing she isn't narcisstic and an attention whore like Asuka!
That's funny because Evangelion is babbies first anime desu...
Well everyone in this thread is arguing over "best girl" despite them all being terrible as waifus, I do belong here!
Then stop arguing over best girl! All eva girls are shit!
Yeah, I could tell by the greentext abuse and posting
without an image. Posters like you are the exact type of garbage that collects in Eva threads. You are precisely what's wrong with not only these threads, but the internet as a whole. Your predisposition to posting without lurking is exactly what kills a community. You're some trendy teenybopper dicksucker who probably just heard about this place within the last two years. You don't belong here and you never will. Your faggotry is exactly what enables memespouting retards like to feel at home. You're a fucking embarrassment. Don't ever post here again. I'm tired of seeing all you petulant newfags run amok. You want to be a mouthbreathing retard for your first few years here, do that shit in /b/, okay faggot? Just fuck off.

Don't mind me, just promoting the best Evangelion ship (just for today <3 )
Childhood is when you want to fuck Shinji. Adulthood is realizing Toji is much much better
Humanity deserves to see all those sweet Love and Pop extra materials.
Feminine penis doesn't count. He's a waifu.
Then it's heterosexual for Kaworu to make buttlove to Shinji?
>You will never be a call girl unwitingly asking Anno if they watched Evangelion
Just kill me now.
But he raped him in his sleep.
Rei is better looking and has a more feminine demenour while still being more intelligent than most females.
A great pick for waifu.
Asuka is a dumb bitch german tomboy, annoying and attentionwhoring. A stacy with daddy issues.
Asuka a shit
>the Anno phone calls are getting around
feels good, so much good material
Where is that anon offering to help translating other never before seen material?! Were he just playing with our feelings? Still no email from him!
Either that or he was just trolling around.
I don't want to make a thread without a good reason or a new content to present because it will likely not live long enough to gain visibility and will only attract more hate towards me of people claiming I'm attwhoring. (Even if I really just want help with someone to make more content for Eva.)
There are many people that only post on weekends, maybe I'll lurk around on Eva threads next weekend to see if we get lucky.
What is this baby play time? bow down to the truest girl
Only two out of those three are canonical, that Rei had sex with Gendo is just the usual sadistic kink people get out of abusing a vulnerable girl.
Waifus or not, Rei is still the best of the three.
Ramiel is the superior choice
>your waifu will never penetrate the Geofront
Maya is genuinely the best Waifu material on Eva.
Some people argue in favor of Hikari, but Hikari is kinda bossy and I have the feeling Maya is sweeter, cuter with a better body while still being virgin. I personally like her seiyuu more. And while she is is attracted to Ritsuko, it is not really likely that she is lesbian, she is likely just bi.
She wanted to use sex for validation, just like the anon said. Go watch some Rebuild or some shipping manga raising project crap if you can't deal with canon Asuka. Those are made weak and pathetic asukafags like you.
>just like the anon
Yep, it's just me. "The anon". I, in fact, wholeheartedly support this unbiased, informative post, for I am an unbiased informative poster myself.
>please respond to me as you have done ad infinitum in the past, as I am so deserving of your response. This is shown by my constant use of elipses and crossboard memes. I repeat I am worthy of your response.
Nah, I'm just here with others to tell you to fuck right off to where you came from. No amount of samefagging is going to change anything.
>Nah, I'm just here with others
>I deleted that post myself
I genuinely feel bad for you.
Reifags are all for violation. After all Rei's mangled pussy was violated by Armisael dick. Not to mention any number of times Gendo wanted to use her as his own personal, disposable onahole.
Leave it be, it clearly has mental problems.
The poor asukafag has mental problems. He's been doing this for years now.
Chances are that his parents already did. One time he was going on about how mental institutions sucked, and how he couldn't post on his PC because of his parents or something.
>not even more than a 10 second difference after the post cooldown
Fucking pathetic. Do I really piss you off that much, Reifag? I'm not to blame for Rei being a shit.
You're not even talking about anime or manga at this point, yet you have the audacity to tell me about what is or isn't a tumor? Take your little personal vendettas to whatever forum you come from. If you're not going to discuss with me just how shit Rei is then I see no further reason to reply to you.
Anime discussion has to be grounded in reality. take your meds first. Then we'll discuss how great Rei is and how much of an angry throwaway doll Asuka is, because those things are the actual facts.
Rei is an encarnated god, pretty sure that counts as great. Asuka is often angry: fact. Asuka was ultimatelly disposable in everyone's schemes: fact. Asuka would do anything for attention and was surrounded with doll imagery: fact.
> Rei is the one whose character arc revolves around her alleged disposability and doll-like nature.
Her body was cloned precisely because she was the one irreplaceable being. And Asuka called her a doll, but that was projection. you should know that since it happened in Asuka's episode. It wasn't about Rei it was about her. but you're too dumb to see that. Asuka meanwhile died in following Misato's orders.
>that was projection
No, Asuka isn't a doll herself. Rei is in fact the doll, because she does what Gendou says without question, INCLUDING DYING FOR HIM. Remember Asuka mother's talking to a doll like it was her daughter telling her to die.
>Rei is in fact the doll, because she does what Gendou says without question, INCLUDING DYING FOR HIM
How did that work out for him?
>Remember Asuka mother's talking to a doll like it was her daughter telling her to die.
Right. So? She died on Misato's orders instead. Dying for a different mother figure, how totally not a doll.
I remember when 2.0 came out and /a/ was /rei/.
I blame Anno for everyone forgetting about her.
But 14yo misato was a pure waifu... The anon that said it was wrong when he said Asuka is basically a 14yo Misato. Misato was nothing like Asuka a that age. We only got party girl misato until college, maybe even not then since that was just her being close to her husbando... It was only after college that she became a military slut. She flat out says at one point that it was because she wanted to degrade herself and break her good girl conditioning.
It was said in the later episodes she can't open herself without using sex with other men, she tried to do that with Shinji. Misato seeks shallow sexual relationships, and that's what WILL will happen with Asuka when she's older.
Gendo never ordered Rei to die. She fought because she wanted to.
Funny how that works both ways. but when Rei died it happened specifically because she disobeyed her superior's orders. While when it happened to Asuka she was following orders that she accepted. When it mattered Asuka never reveled to authority. she was forever compliant.
How do you know?, as said Misato went from a nice girl to a party girl, people change, anon, you can't tell how Asuka will be as adult, maybe she will give up on relationships and become a cold and aloof person
Because in the live action segment of End of Evangelion, Asuka was in a sexual relationship with Toji and acting her usual self. Showing she hasn't matured and will only use men for validation and not falling in love.
I find it interesting how the cross generational trios reflect and contrast one another. In some ways Misato is Asuka to Ritsuko's Rei (outgoing vs aloof) but in other ways Misato is more a match for Rei and Ritsuko for Asuka. Rit/Asu put great stock in their value as person in her career as scientist/pilot, while M/R just want to get the job done, are industrious at it, but in their personal space they're a mess because they don't care about how they come off.
No anon. Rei doesn't do what Gendo says without question, and Rei herself says she doesn't pilot because Gendo tells her to. Rewatch episode six.
Rei will die if ordered, and if not ordered, in battle. Rei will even attempt to take out the Angels at the cost of her own life even if she's explicitly ordered not to. Rei chooses to do this because it's in her situation, the most effective and often the only way to win.
Asuka is a doll because she's under NERV's full control. They control her through EVA-piloting. Asuka loses her life spark without the EVA, she is a puppet and the EVA NERV controls are her strings.
Rei fights because she has a reason, a justification.
Asuka fights because it's what she's been programmed to.
>Rei will die if ordered, and if not ordered, in battle.
That's what Asukafags and Asuka don't get about what Rei said, they hear it from their doll perspective and think she was validating their belief she is a doll. When in reality what she was saying is "If ordered, I would do anything that has to be done in order to get the job done, even die if necessary. But if the order runs contrary to that I will disregard it then and do what needs to be done anyway."
Because that's what she actually did.
Those aren't me. I'm just >>154595780
Asuka fans are unable to connect the reality of what the characters actually do with their "interpretations". If they were capable of reason and understanding other people, they wouldn't be Asuka fans in the first place.
>Did you miss the fact that Rei was made in-house at GEHIRN
Did you miss the fact Rei created Rei "through the instrumentality of her experiences and relationships with others" and not because her soul comes from Lillith or her body was built by Gehirn? Rei was self created. Everyone else is too, but unlike Shinji and Asuka, she understood that.
>Did you miss the fact that Rei was made in-house at GEHIRN? Of course you did.
I'm >>154595780 and of course I didn't miss that.
Rei was indeed misguided and programmed by NERV too, but Rei proved too strong for the programming. They lied to Rei, abused Rei and threatened Rei, but it didn't work. It made Rei a sad introvert, but Rei kept her integrity all along.
Like >>154596192 and Rei herself says in the TV-series, Rei is self-made and independent in mind and will, but not without connections. Asuka is literally unable to function without the Evangelion, her mothers womb.
Asuka symbolizes regression into the womb, while Rei symbolizes maturity.
Evangelion is a show about how outer apperances are used to mask hidden mechanics yet Asukafags really have such a surface level understanding of NGE it's no wonder they get everything so wrong. They take the veneer appearance of things and take as representation of the whole thing.
>Rei fights because she has a reason, a justification.
>Asuka fights because it's what she's been programmed to.
You are either trying to hard to troll and trigger Asukafags (and failing) or you are completely delusional autistic and plain simply retarded to not see how Rei is the most controlled puppet of all the 3 kids.
Yes, all kids are manipulated and used by the adults, but Rei was solely fabricated as tool. Her life is not respected precisely because she can be resurrected countless times and she isn't a real daughter of anyone.
>not see how Rei is the most controlled puppet
>Rei was solely fabricated as tool.
and you're too dumb to see the irony that the character that was specifically created to be a perfect tool turned out to be the freest of them all and proved to be the all the chessmaster's undoing.
She never offered herself sexually to Shinji. That is an overinterpretation. She also never slept with any other men besides Kaji, as she clearly stated at the end of episode 20. The lines for episode 25 says that she can only open up by sex, the conclusion is that she never opened up to any other men besides Kaji.
>turned out to be the freest of them all and proved to be the all the chessmaster's undoing.
She was never free. She was a tool obeying order and with no real reason to live or self drive until the very last moment when she realized se wasn't a human. Then, she just reverted to her function as Lilith, and once again became a slave of the FAR will's: Seed and protect her offspring. As a human Rei was always hollow, she only found her a real meaning when se realized she wasn't human. And her meaning, was not of a human.
Rei is the less realistic of all Eva characters, the shallowest, the hollowest, the less independent, she is a pity excuse of existence as a human.
They simply have a biased and ignorant understanding of things. They do everything backwards - they have this desire of how they want things to be, and start altering the characters in their minds to fit that end goal.
So rather than look at Asuka's character and what it thinks, does or doesn't, and then work out who Asuka is based on that, they project the fantasy Asuka in their minds onto the real one.
You're just extremely butthurt that it's the truth. That explains your rabid anger and inability to explain WHY you believe Rei is the most brainwashed.
It's simple, Rei is able to understand and reflect on her situation and then work herself out of it. Rei is able to free herself from the bindings NERV tried to put on her. At the end of the day, the only thing NERV has to control Rei with is physical force, her failing loyalty and obligation to do the right thing.
This is why they fail in Rei's case, because at the end, Rei chooses.
Asuka on the other hand is utterly dependent on the EVA. This is a fact. It is also how NERV controls Asuka. They provide the only true means for validation she has, and they can take it away whenever they want. They made Asuka dependent on the EVA by stripping her of her mother, telling her she was "special" for being an EVA pilot, and enrolled her into the EVA program.
This is why they succeed with Asuka, because she is unable to function without the EVA and has no choice at all in what she does.
They also tried to control Rei, as shown when they tell her she can be replaced, and Rei is even killed and revived, demonstrating that it's not just a facetious threat but an actual thing that can happen. They subjected Rei to a constant barrage of tests and they have made it clear that she can't really get out.
That's a lot of big words you can't back up anon. In the literal and the metaphorical sense, he is right. Rei is not only freed from the accusation that she is a puppet, but she is also free of the physical boundaries of time and space. Rei is even beyond death.
Whether you want to accept it or not, Rei's character is the one that's the most fundamental to all human beings. While e.g Misato overspecialize in her portrayal of a woman that has a conflict between her pure and sexual side, Rei's dilemma and questions apply to us all. No matter who you are, you have at some point wondered who you are or what makes you you.
What you offer as a counter-interpreation concerning the FAR and so in is simply the delusions of an obsessive eva-fan who delves too deep into various spinoffs, rather than taking the character itself and trying to understand it. This is why you'll always lose these debates, because you aren't arguing to get closer to reality, but to get away from it.
The solid, hard facts of the Evangelion series will always win over your fanwank and desperate attempts to discredit Rei.
Also continuing from here...
Even Anno himself said he had no more use for Rei as a character after episode 6. From there on, she fell completely as a side hole in the plot, waiting for the moment she is revealed as a duality symbolism for the oedipal complex. Kaworu and Rei are both shallow characters with no proper background or character construction. They were built as plot devices, Rei just had the bonus of feeling the whole of a cool shallow fanservice girl. All your mental gymnastics to humanize and give Rei further virtue than she actually had just are showing how asp and obsessed you are with this retarded shit of waifuwars and glorifing characters.
I'm not even an Asukafag. I just enjoy the characters for their depth and Rei is the most uninteresting from a psyche multifaceted development perspective (even if I like her for superficial kuudere appeal.)
By the way, I recognize your patter of forced rationalizations from over 2 years ago. You are the same guy that tried to argue with all his might that Rei "wasn't a clone" because by the sole definition of real life, a clone needs a human egg and that the series never explicit say that 100% of Yui's DNA was used on Rei, which was just a ridiculous overstretch of the truth.
You are one of the cancers that make all eva threads so shitty. I sincerely wish you go and stay go. No one likes you.
You also seem to forget that Rei's situation is central to the understanding of it. Rei's true form and being is that of a Goddess, and NERV has taken that from her. Rei returning to Lilith is her reclamation of what they stole from her.
>Whether you want to accept it or not, Rei's character is the one that's the most fundamental to all human beings.
Rei character is just important as a Plot Device. I don't care about that. I enjoy Eva because of the realism of the character development and how well founded they are. I like Rei, of course, but she is far from being the most interesting and well developed characters from the series.
>She was never free
I just told you how she was.
>She was a tool
I told you how she showed she wasn't. she was quite a terrible tool considering she upturned everyone's plans.
>when she realized se wasn't a human.
before anything she was Rei Ayanami, that's the self image she built for herself.
> became a slave of the FAR will's
> As a human Rei was always hollow
She had the strongest engagement with her inner life of all the characters. Being introspective would do that to you.
>she only found her a real meaning when se realized she wasn't human
She had a meaning all along, see Ep 6
> And her meaning, was not of a human.
Her meaning was Rei Ayanami's meaning.
>Rei is the less realistic of all Eva characters, the shallowest, the hollowest, the less independent, she is a pity excuse of existence as a human.
that's like your (wrong) opinion man.
and your insane theorization only lends more credibility to my comments regarding your approach to understanding things, or rather, to not understand them. When you bring up the Anno example, you end up preferring your interpretation over the facts: Anno did find a use for Rei after episode six. A momentary thought he had during the making does not define the series or the story - the end product does. In that, Rei is not only more developed, but a central piece of the story and an amazing character on her own.
>I'm not even an Asukafag. I just enjoy the characters for their depth
Given your posts so far, the latter is not true. You're just a obsessive fanboy or fangirl.
Rather than facing the facts head on, you make up paranoid conspiracy theories about someone out to get you. You're always going to have these problems because you're just running away from reality, Evangelion warned you of this.
So as you can see, and other anons (I only came in recently) told you, you're stuck without backing for your theories. But you're not adult enough to discard them.
>I just told you how she was.
You literally bend the truth in your own interpretation like you always do. Your claims are false.
>I told you how she showed she wasn't.
Again, wrong. She was effectively a toll for humanity until episode 24. After that she shifted to returning being a tool for the FAR.
>She had the strongest engagement with her inner life of all the characters
Source: Your own delusional fanwank distortion of the original work. Stop.
>Her meaning was Rei Ayanami's meaning.
Nice Red Harring
>that's like your (wrong) opinion man.
Sure, tough no one else cares about your opinion either, man.
>Except when taken in the context of Anno's metacommentary, Rei is clearly the one meant to symbolize regression with Asuka being the opposite.
I'd say Asuka is based on NGE. The question is, which do you choose:
An internet interpreation
The actual series
Choosing anything but the latter is a critical failure and an inherent admission that you are a delusional idiot. The idea of "Anno's Metacommentary" as you put is is more like a meme perpetrated by obsessive fandom rather than a critical look at the text itself. It bases itself on looking everywhere BESIDES the text, and therefore it is inherently a lie by omission as well.
It's a form of "pasta", insofar it's a mantra chanted by ignorant Rei-haters often belonging to the envious Asukafag school of thought.
>Even Anno himself said
Anno says a lot of shit. lots of it self contradictory. He also said Rei is the deepest part of himself. Stop bringing outside sources (author included) and focus on the work.
>Rei is the most uninteresting from a psyche multifaceted development perspective
Opinion, I find Rei is the most interesting character.
>I just enjoy the characters for their depth
>I like her for superficial kuudere appeal
You're the one that seems to be liking/disliking characters on superficial character traits.
Not that guy but you've obviously been defeated. Each post you make without argumentation that doesn't refute the central points of the other anon, is one more proof that your interpretation is held by deeply delusional individuals who are dependent on a lie they've told themselves.
>dismissing metacommentary to which Anno himself has said as existing as nothing but a meme
Well, thanks for letting us know once again you're not worth anyone's time here. I'm going to be the bigger man and stop feeding you replies.
You'll always be the lesser man for pursuing an internet meme over the actual, solid text itself. You're resorting to escapism, a delusion because the reality of Evangelion does not conform to your illicit fantasies.
I'm checking out as well, because I've got work in a few hours. Maybe one day when you're older you're realize what sort of pathetic person you've been not just others, but also to yourself.
>In that, Rei is not only more developed, but a central piece of the story
Never denied that, as I said: Her character was made precisely to be a PLOT DEVICE. Rei is barely more than that: A PLOT DEVICE.
>and an amazing character on her own.
For your own personal taste, sure. She still is the most shallow of the 4 most important characters and the less realistic.
>you make up paranoid conspiracy theories
Wut? The FAR is not a "conspiracy theory", is Tier 2 canon, confirmed by Anno himself.
>Each post you make without argumentation that doesn't refute the central points
No one cares, Reifag.
He (and you) are the ones that failed to refute the central point by moving the goalpost, appealing to subjective interpretation, Red Herring and non sequitur.
The main 3 facts I brought persist:
Rei is the less developed of the main characters.
Rei is the less realistic of the main characters
Rei is the less independent of the main characters
>kid is literally admitting to liking character for superficial appeal
Because she as a human is very unlikeable.
Because she is not realistic and convincing as a realistic character like the others appeal to me.
All Rei has going for her is the kuudere factor and goddess fantasy characteristic.
>no doubt he feels that about all of Evangelion.
>Rei is the less developed of the main characters.
Asuka is far less developed as a character, hell she basically goes in and out out of the story whenever needed. Misato and Shinji might be more developed than Rei, but they're basically The protagonist and deuteragonist. The story revolves around Shinji, and it's easy to see how the story could have revolved around Misato instead. Tougher still you could have an NGE that might revolve around Rei. But an NGE that revolves around Asuka would be a mess.
>Rei is the less realistic of the main characters
sure, not that many ancient gods incarnated in schoolgirls running around. but that does not speak for quality or how compelling a character is. Old testament Yahweh is not very realistic either.
>Rei is the less independent of the main characters
I already addressed this, you repeating the point with no refutation doesn't make you right.
Asuka's desire to feel loved and wanted coupled with her inability to allow herself to be seen as vulnerable was so aggravating
How does this matter if the end result is that he hates her now? Not to mention that there are many Asuka fans who could give a fuck about Shinji. You're just living in the past Reifag and hoping Asuka fags are still stuck there with you.
>Asuka is far less developed as a character,
HAHAHAH no, Friend. she even has the largest midnfuck sequence (apart from Shinji's on episode 26) dedicate to explain her background and trauma.
She has neurotic displacement to dolls, separation anxiety (Freudian Concept), object dependence (Kleinian Theory, also further developed by Winnicot) Infused in her development. All concepts explicity overlayed with text as flashes in Episode 22. She also has a clear case of Freudian Ambivalence towards her mother with an unresolved Electra complex (we could even argue that her attraction towards Kaji is a form of electra complex as she projects her hate towards Misato with identification with her mother using her, Again another Freudian concept). The background story of Asuka is extremely interesting, and could easily be used as a case study in Psychology classes showing all processes with dealing with trauma in infancy and development of neurosis and egocentrical defense mechanisms.
I even consider the infusion of Psychology and Psychoanalitical concepts into Asuka more sophisticated than on Shinji that is more of a classical oedipal development, with an homo-affective ambivalent relationship with the father figure.
But of course, since you are probably uneducated into psychology and psychoanalysis, you are blind to all the more subtle aspects of Asuka development. The one who has a shallow liking for the Evangelion characters is not me, Friend.
>I already addressed this, (less independent)
Your addressing was inadequate, dismissing the FAR as "fanwank/conspiracy theory" is a informal fallacy.
Who the hell can even stand asuka, anyway?
>she even has the largest midnfuck sequence
Rei has one too, in fact Rei has Ep 5, 6, 14 & 23 plus she doesn't completely disappear in the second half of EoE.
>I even consider the infusion of Psychology and Psychoanalitical concepts into Asuka more sophisticated than on Shinji
No surprise where your biases lie.
>Rei has one too, in fact Rei has Ep 5, 6, 14 & 23
You can't call the elements from Ep 5 and 6 actual mindfucks (or deep character explorations). The dialogue with Shinji on episode 6 barely go any deep in actually explaining Rei's traumas. Ep 21's Rei 1 death was more important.
Ep 14 Poem is hardly a mindfuck either, most of the elements are more for aesthetic than a proper deep analysis of Rei, the main purpose of the whole excerpt is to show Rei identity crisis and her unconscious feeling of having more than one identity. One interesting aspect is she saying she hates the Red color; more specifically, blood, showing how she has unresolved issues with her sexuality and menstruation, this could've been interestingly explored further if she had some sort of traumatic sex experience with someone. I always thought that could bring some sort of sick realism fucked up dynamic to her, But no, it stopped into the surface never quite giving a proper meaning to that sentence. The sequence on episode 23 is not a real mindfuck sequence, the dialogue with the Angel only works to show Rei discovering her deep repressed pain of loneliness. but the focus is more on the fact of actually bringing for the first time communication with an Angel. It never goes deep. All those elements together don't give 10% of all the exposition with get with Asuka solely on Episode 22. Ep 25 exposition of Rei is quite small too, it shows how simple her anxiety actually was and how Anno didn't have anything more developed ready for her: An afraid of being useless and discarded. Anno could have used the same object separation anxiety from Winnicot's theory to further develop how that turned Rei on an schizoid, it could be interesting, but he never did. A shame.
>No surprise where your biases lie.
I think Asuka is the most interesting character, indeed, but in no way I view her as a waifu material. I hate bitchy girls.
Interesting how suddenly all Reifags went quiet.

As we speak I am contacting my secret botnet of computers across the world and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that washes up the pathetic little thing you call your identity. You’re fucking pwned, kid. I can login anywhere, anytime, and I can hack you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare keyboard. Not only am I extensively trained in unassisted penetration, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Cyberweapons Command and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your feeble anonymity off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking pwned, kiddo.
>Never denied that, as I said: Her character was made precisely to be a PLOT DEVICE. Rei is barely more than that: A PLOT DEVICE.
You're screaming. Rei is a full character whose important the story, and she is a more developed character than Asuka. Plot device ? No.
>For your own personal taste, sure. She still is the most shallow of the 4 most important characters and the less realistic.
For your own personal taste, sure. Rei's character wasn't based on doujin-material unlike Asuka.
>Wut? The FAR is not a "conspiracy theory", is Tier 2 canon, confirmed by Anno himself.
See this "Tier" canon? Literally fanmade conspiracy nonsense. Not confirmed by Anno himself in any way at all.
When it comes to these "facts":
>Rei is the less developed of the main characters.
>Rei is the less realistic of the main characters
>Rei is the less independent of the main characters
they are just statements without any backing. This post alone: >>154596742
proves all of it wrong.
Sorry "Asukafag", but you do lose.
You fail to have a point - besides elaborate and speculate on Rei's character, you've failed to grasp the characteristics of what a developed character is. Psychology or fanwank is not literary criticism in itself, and since it remains a fact that Rei has a stronger character conclusion than Asuka that's better tied with her overall arc, Rei remains a more developed character.
Whereas Asuka simply ends, Rei does actually have a conclusion to her arc that goes beyond stating the obvious.
Wow you sure showed everyone here reifag
I will cuck moot and claim what is rightfully mine when we get to the great asukabowl in the sky
The level of your blindness and denial is astounding.
Do you really believe you are "winning" this argument? Or that you can irritate/troll someone else with such weak unintelligent provocations?
Did you take your asperger medication today?
You simply fail to confront the truth. You bend the facts, the arguments and even the reality to continue to perpetuate you self belief despite all the evidence to the contrary.Either by actually belivieng what you are saying, or because you believe people are getting genuinely irritate by what you say.
You are like a religious person who denies evolution, a liberal who believes in rape culture or a conservative who believes in the invisible hand of the free market.
Even as troll you fail to irritate anyone. All you do is prove how ridiculous blind and cognitive limited you are.
The only thing you actually do accomplish is polute and lower the quality of Eva threads with your posts. If that is your real goal, congratulations, you made made another Eva thread, shitier. I really do pity you. But at the same time, wish that cancer waifuwar promoters like you, that hurt the fandom of Eva so badly would disappear from the internet.
He's the textwalling Reifag, he has problems.
