It's been awhile...

While listening to this song here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N5heBwvVbfI) and reading the lyrics, Shinji and Rei popped into my mind as I think the lyrics fit them well. It pretty much describes them during NGE series events given their motives and mindset while piloting the units. There are parts which describes more Rei than Shinji given her standard attitude towards piloting the Eva.

P.S.: Yes, I'm a metalhead.

P.S.(2): I don't know/remember if there's a topic discussing main themes for the characters.
I've got nothing better to do, so I have registered myself here!

Shinji: "I'm just a poor boy. Nobody loves me."

Bridge Bunnies: "HE'S JUST A POOR BOY FROM A POOR FAMILY. SPARE HIM HIS LIFE FROM THIS MONSTROSITY."
Among the people who use the Internet, many are obtuse. Because they are locked in their rooms, they hang on to that vision which is spreading across the world. But this does not go beyond mere ‘data’. Data without analysis [thinking], which makes you think that you know everything. This complacency is nothing but a trap. Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.

And so we arrive at demagogy. - Hideaki Anno, 1996

Queen & David Bowie - Under Pressure


Pressure pushing down on me
Pressing down on you, no man ask for
Under pressure that burns a building down
Splits a family in two

...

It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching some good friends
Screaming, "Let me out!"

...

Chippin' around, kick my brains 'round the floor
These are the days - it never rains but it pours

...

Turned away from it all like a blind man
Sat on a fence but it don't work
Keep coming up with love but it's so slashed and torn
Why, why, why?

Love

Insanity laughs under pressure we're cracking
Can't we give ourselves one more chance?
Why can't we give love that one more chance?
Why can't we give love, give love, give love, give love, give love, give love, give love, give love?..

'Cause love's such an old-fashioned word
And love dares you to care for
The people on the edge of the night
And love dares you to change our way of
Caring about ourselves
This is our last dance
This is our last dance
This is ourselves
Under pressure
Under pressure
Pressure


I think that it's a very "Evangelion" song, but maybe it's more fit for Asuka and Shinji.
「希望は残っているよ。どんな時にもね」
