What's funny is that this is true. Reifags are fucking nutjobs.

Rei is fantastic as a Spock Like character turning into a god of self-actualization that leads the rest of the cast to tear down and rebuild their egos on a foundation not built on sand.

The tragedy with Rei is that she's a strong girl, and her foundation isn't built on sand and wasn't built by her, it was built by Gendo, so her character arc is retaking it from Gendo.

I don't know, I like Rei, but she's not as relatable as somebody who's ego has to be destroyed before there's any hope of recovery.

You would love her to just be a plot device wouldn't you. Sadly for you she's more than that.
>it was built by Gendo, so her character arc is retaking it from Gendo.
Fucking bullshit, she literally stated that she formed herself through her own thoughts and interactions with others. Gendo merely controlled her body, but she was her own woman, it was the fatal flaw in his plan which he never saw coming.
>I don't know, I like Rei, but she's not as relatable as somebody who's ego has to be destroyed before there's any hope of recovery.
That's just your personal preference, for me watching her build her ego by the bootstraps while the ego of all other characters falls apart makes her more interesting, at the very least makes her different. all other characters are variations on a theme, Rei is the counterpoint.

Asuka would have been a better character if she wasn't such a tsundere. That archetype is just too cartoonish for a somone who's supposed to represent a "real woman" and serve as a female counterpart to Shinji, the most nuanced character in the show. I would have liked her better if her hatred and disgust was shown in a more natural way and not constantly fetishized and played as a joke.
The reveal of her backstory also felt really rushed compared to the rest of the cast. We learn almost everything about her at once near the end of the show.

>>157467476
She clearly has some romantic feelings towards the mid of the story, that why she is so sad about he not doing shit during the kiss.
By EoE the feelings were replaced with hate and anger. Fuck what the VA said.

Its a major point and have a whole 10 minutes scene on EoE (the one of the 3 girls and shinji on the wagon ) about how they liked him and he was too much of an ass to do anything and blamed them for not making him happy.

That's exactly what the pseudo-experts of EvaGeeks usually say when someone proves them their dear ship is an utter failure.

There's a major difference between "romantic" feelings and "hormonal" attraction. Asuka is 13 years old, with a traumatic past. May I ask if you "loved" someone at that age or if you think someone broken as Asuka is can ever know what "love" is?

Wall of Jericho.png

>>157467741
Just like Misato, Asuka is shown to have difficulties dealing with others, especially males. In both cases, they use physical attraction to get closer to others (Kaji and Shinji, mainly) and get what they want: a remedy to their desperate loneliness.

In fact, in the Wall of Jericho/night scene (when Asuka sleeps next to Shinji) and in the kiss scene, Asuka is wearing Misato's yellow shirt, which is made for adults, so her cleavage can be easily seen. That way, Asuka, as a child she is, thinks she can "attract" her male target (Shinji in this case, but actually anyone would have done) and force him to save her, or "break her Wall of Jericho". But she's way too young to understand the meaning of anything at all. She just has the erroneous and simplistic belief that men would save her upon seeing her breasts; but human relationships are a great deal more complex than that.

And it's actually the utter incompetence of Shinji what pisses Asuka off so much: his inability to "man up" and reach for her. To Asuka's eyes, Shinji is a failure as a man, but Kaji, her idealized knight, is completely unattainable to her. Thus, she can't be saved and that (plus other things) finally drives her to her dementia.

Evangelion is far from being a romantic anime in which "girl A likes boy B".

Kiss scene.png

>>157468626
In fact, a bit before the kiss scene (I believe it's in the very same episode), Asuka agreed to go on a date with a college student. It seems that guy was "too boring", but imagine for a second what would have happened if he were an interesting man in Asuka's eyes: voilĂ , bye bye, effeminate Shinji!

If she had so clear and obvious romantic feelings towards Shinji, as some simple-minded believe, why would Asuka still chase Kaji, or went on a date with a stranger guy. I don't deny she felt some kind of attraction towards Shinji (feelings which she utterly rejects and in 22' is shown to be disgusted with), but that's far from being love or anything similar.

>Evangelion is far from being a romantic anime in which "girl A likes boy B".
Yes it is, and there is a lot more to it than you said..

I think that asuka obsession with shinji come from the fact that, even if he is, as you said, "a failure as a man", he constantly outperform her and he dont seen interested in her.
If he is the failure, what is she? It isnt only her "idealized knight kaji" thats out of her reach, its virtually everyone. Thats a reality shock for her and one of the reasons of her breakdown.

You have all the rights in the world to say it isnt a health feeling, because it sure as hell isnt, but in EoE she made it very clear she had something going for him. Just saying it was "hormonal lust" like someone above said dont quite cut it. Besides, trying to split emotion and feelings from hormones is completely insane. Emotion isnt rational and comes straight from hormones and instinct.

I go back to my argument that shinji proves to her that she isnt the hot shit she think she is, and everyone normal is out of reach. Do you really think someone "interesting" would be willing to put up asuka's shit? Maybe someone would call her on a date because he thinks she is pretty, but anyone normal would end up breaking up with her. And it would make her even weaker mentally.

While I can agree with almost everything you say, there are some things I'd like to express my disagreement with:

>Just saying it was "hormonal lust" like someone above said dont quite cut it.
But calling it "romantic" as some people do is as erroneous as "mere lust". That's why I'm always very cautious when talking about Asuka's feelings.

>in EoE she made it very clear she had something going for him.
Again, while I can agree to a certain point with your words, I can't think of anything romantic at all. Asuka desperately needs validation, and if she has to use men for that, she'll use them.
And in the various clashes between Asuka and Shinji in EoE we see how pissed she is for him not having tried to save her. Contempt, resentment, immaturity, you can call it however you like, but "love" or "romantic feelings" are out of the question, in my opinion.

Asuka's heart is just impenetrable, like her Wall of Jericho.

>Do you really think someone "interesting" would be willing to put up asuka's shit?
I partially agree, although I'm of the opinion unstable people would need someone more sane to save them. But, in any case, by any means can I see Shinji "putting up Asuka's shit".
Asuka is doomed to remain misunderstood unless she changes and learns how to deal with others (thus, showing she's learnt how to cope with the Hedgehog's Dilemma).
>>

>>157470161
>changes and learns how to deal with others (thus, showing she's learnt how to cope with the Hedgehog's Dilemma).
Given the fact that Rei managed to understand herself and made her own choices, shinjis resolution and all of Yui dilalogue in the end, thats the direction she, shinji and perhaps all the cast (if not everyone who went through instrumentality) are headed after EoE.
Not that it will be a quick and easy road, but i choose to believe thats what the ending implies.

>>157463579
Asuka isn't a "real woman", that's part of her character. She's a child who has forced herself to grow up faster that she would have normally. She acts overly sexual for her age with Kagi and tries not to rely on anyone else for this reason. A big part of her insecurity is that she isn't really old enough to be person she feels she needs to be in her mind.

The second you enclosed her into an archetype you have already lost any kind of objectivity in your comment and just sound like a mindless retard, there's a difference between making a character that can fall into an archetype and create a character with said archetype as its core nature. The next time try to make the same comment without using the word tsundere, regardless of the discussion, see how it goes.

To live on as an immortal God as a testament to humanity? Did she know of Eva-01's future importance and how she would be able to let Shinji decide the fate of humanity if she took control of it?

>To live on as an immortal God as a testament to humanity?
Sounds like pretty good motivation to me

>Did she know of Eva-01's future importance and how she would be able to let Shinji decide the fate of humanity if she took control of it?
She most likely would be under the impression that Gendo, who she seemed to trust, would be the one who decides.

Kagi more or less does it. I'm not saying she's a good person but she's not a pedophile
>>
>>157475190
She planned out everything from beginning to end, she read the Dead Sea Scrolls a.k.a the instrumentalisation manual and worked out a way to fulfill her fucking crazy dream, that's a mad scientist for you.

Childhood is liking Rei.
Puberty is liking Misato.
Adulthood is liking Asuka.

Sounds about right.
>>
>>157474794
Why is she so much hotter than every other female on the show?

>>157475667
The older people get the less willing they are to put up with Cuntdere bullshit. so you're wrong.

She definitely predicted how the experiment would go. Apparently nobody else did and they just copied the accident she staged until the mass production series because they knew it worked. But if she wanted an immortal god body superior to Lilith or Adam, she already had it by the end of episode 19 and was still cooperating. Early as episode 2, nobody could really have stopped her from taking anything she wanted.
>>
>>157475773
Indeed she isn't, she's a Cuntdere.
>>
>>157475879
It's more complicated than that, 'Stopping SEELE and making the world a bright place' was just the bait of how she reeled in Gendo & Fuyutsuki.

Mech anime has a dedicated board, friend. Please delete thread and take it to /m/, thank you.

this thread (and NGE as a whole) isn't about the 'mechs', it's about the people in the story

>>157476040
This isn't a mech anime.
>>
>>157475967
One nitpick: She wasn't totally sure it would work, which is why the day before she let Fuyutsuki into her secret so in case something went wrong at least somebody would know what she tried to do.

Regardless of whether they're "mechs" or not is irrelevant. Its design is heavily influenced by mech anime and it is recognized by authorities in the anime community as a mech anime. Therefore, it is a mech anime. The fact that they're "Eva's" inside armor is only relevant to the anime itself. In relation to all other anime, its a mech.
>>
>>157476367
But the anime isn't about mechs, it's about humans.

And Godhood is realising that Maya is the ideal girlfriend irl.

Why are you arguing this
You know the mods will never side against Eva and kick it off the board, it's just not happening

I could care less whether the mods act on my comments. I'm doing this to educate people of what is true and what is true is that Eva is a mech anime. Your desperate, self-inserting obsession doesn't change that.

Not much different from Reifags and Asukafags, then.
>>
>>157477648
At least Rei and Asuka were in more than 1 episode and have some characterization. Kaworu appears out of nowhere and we know nothing about him/
>>
>>157477334
They like gray but realize they couldn't handle Fuyutsuki.
>>
>>157477726
Tell me one thing you don't know about him, and I can guarantee it was explained somehow in his episode.
He didn't need more than one to contribute what he was supposed to for the show.
>>
>>157477648
It's very different, Asukafags care about asuka's character, just not the actual one portrayed in the show but some imaginary version that only exist in theire heads where she's not a bitch and would instead melt in their arms if they could only hug her. Reifags actually care about Rei's character which is why almost all are up in arms about the travesty that is Q even though for all intents and purposes that thing looks exactly like Rei.
>>
>>157477769
I'm not saying his character in the context of the show was bad, I'm saying he has no real traits to make viewers like him as much as he is.
>>
>>157477827
Well it's all subjective.
It's fine if you're not interested in him, but others feel differently.

He popularized one of my favorite character archetypes in Anime so I can't help but be obsessed with him.
>>
>>157477789
Nah, they mostly like them because they're cute girls.
If Rei or Asuka were ugly I guarantee you they would lose all their fans in a snap. Character be damned, it was always about looks first.
And the Reifag butthurt is only on this site, spread by like 3 anons at most.
Outside of this site every Reifag thinks Rei Q is Rei and has no problem with her other than "resetting" from 2.0.

He's the main source of insight into one of the most mysterious and interesting aspects of the series; the angels.
Also he's one of the few alien characters in Anime who actually acts like a fucking alien.
No cliche bullshit about wanting to learn about emotions or "become a human". He's perfectly fine with being an alien and has no desire to change who he is, yet he still shows fascination and interest in humanity.

He has an aerial bird's eye view on the world of Eva, basically his entire existence is a consistent breaking the 4th wall. And every action and word of his acts and supports this.
Rarely ever are these types of characters handled correctly, but Kaworu's episode became infamous and as did he.
Despite having just one episode, you yourself still remember him despite claiming he's boring. That's how much of an impact he had on you and you didn't even realize it.
And that's why there's so many clones of him in Anime, even now 20 years later.

Everything about him is interesting and intriguing, because we rarely get it in Anime.

she's probably the most "broken" character, which makes her very sympathetic. she tries to befriend rei, only for rei to reject her friendship thsu making her reasonably assume rei doesn't like her. also she helps shinji find confidence and mature as a person, partially intentionally and partially unintentionally.

I'm pretty sure you've got that mixed up, childhood is when you worship Rei and Asuka, adulthood is when you realize Misato makes more sense.

I hate to say it because I don't even like Misato, but I don't like Rei or Asuka either so there's that.
>>
>>157454086
You know that the three children represent childhood, adolescence and adulthood right?
And that only one of them is actually mature right?

Are you just trying to be stupid on purpose to get (you)s? If so congratulations you're a fucking idiot and Evangelion is officially too deep for you

Rei is best girl and you just need to accept it before you can progress with your life, otherwise you are a literal retard

Misato the adult is a teenager on the inside.
Rei the child is an adult on the inside.

I don't recall Asuka doing a single one of those things in the show. She did the exact opposite, in fact.

>>
>>157484785
I simply can't wrap my head around the weapons grade autism one must have in order to interpret Asuka's offer of friendship to Rei as sincere. Fucking Draco Malfoy was more convincing when he offered Harry Potter his own "friendship".

Maybe you're shitposting, but I've actually seen people hold the opinion you expressed. I just can't tell where the bullshit ends and where the real 'tism starts with this fandom.

Clearly you don't know anything about the master. You should read more interviews.

Rather than a Q&A format, they posed a number of subjects and/or questions to him (which were apparently brought up by a panel), and then quoted his responses to them.
