Re: How much does Asuka care about Shinji?

I admit that this is really just my opinion, but I used to believe Asuka and Shinji both at least wanted to like each other romantically when I was younger myself. Now I really don't think that's really the case for either of them, and they're both just so utterly isolated and alone, yet physically...

Re: Is it impossible for Shinji and Asuka to love one another?

Everyone been debating could they? But just as important question is should they? I mean maybe its better that they go their separate ways and not dwell on each other too much. Sure they have similar baggage being eva pilots and deep seeded parental issues but is that enough form a healthy relations...

Re: If Shinji were to die in the final film.

Part of eva is about accepting life no matter how awful it seems. Shinji dying either through suicide would greatly undermine that. Hell even a heroic sacrifice would feel like an easy way out that avoids Shinji's the real problem in a strange way. The only other way is death through execution or ac...

Re: [Fic] Amarantos

Been reading this on FF.net, you've made some good improvements and looking forward to seeing how Shinji will live now that is (mostly) on his own and for his eventually reunion with Asuka. Also hoping he builds a better relation with Misato and Rei.

Re: Criticism of Evangelion: Accept, Reject, or Both?

The only thing that really makes me think is if it was necessary for Rei to have such an extreme level of autism Autism doesn't just equal social ineptitude. Rei really doesn't show that many signs of typical autism. She does have a near complete social disconnect but this is because she is quite c...

Re: Criticism of Evangelion: Accept, Reject, or Both?

I think there is a difference between saying you don't like Asuka or Shinji as person instead of saying they are bad characters. I simply don't believe that they can be consider bad characters by any rational adult who understands people at the basic level. They are well written and act as how they ...

Re: After EoE

I suppose its possible for them just to starve to death and for no one else to come back, or for Shinji to get killed in a lynching when people come back but why would you "want" that. It would feel almost anti-climactic for after all Shinji and Asuka have been through for them just to die...

Re: Should Asuka die in the final film?

I don't see the reason for it. I mean sure they could have handled the Shinji situation in a more tact way but given the situation its hard to say. Besides eva is about people screwing up. For deaths I would say Gendo and Futuyski have it coming and Rei II has a very high chance of dying or being pe...

Its a weird feeling that having Shinji being disabled actually somehow makes me more optimistic for him.

Re: FanFiction Requests/Recommendations/Discussion etc.

This is the ultimate feel bad Evangelion fanfic. The problem with Kadmon's fics is that they're so relentlessly dark they cross the line into self-parody on a regular basis. A Throne of Bayonets and Genocide are much better options IMO (though IIRC the former goes full WAFF in its sequel). I've rea...

Re: Not Liking Eva and its Emotional Connection

I think you can not like something, but still understand its value. I've never been that much of a fan of horror movies for example but I probably could tell a well made one apart from a bad one if I had too.

Re: Not Liking Eva and its Emotional Connection

It is an odd show and flawed, but almost one of a kind that I couldn't be made in any other medium or circumstance other than with Anno's and anime industries problems in the 90s. Although there are shows like cowboy bebop or FMA:B that "more perfect" or "less flawed" than NGE I'...

Re: NGE Age Swap Fic

I've been considering writing a age swap type fic myself, but don't worry I never get things started yet alone done. The only problem is see is Shinji being "Depict as being immature, snarky and condescending". This doesn't really strike me as Shinji in 14-15 years. Maybe in the post EoE w...

Re: So does Shinji like Asuka?

I've always thought that it was pretty obvious Shinji had a schoolboy crush on Asuka, but isn't really "in love" with her. He goes to her last when there is no one else left for him and she calls him out on it in the pre-3I kitchen scene.He really let her down during the descant arc, and d...

Re: [Fic] Amarantos

Thanks Geo. Shinji and Rei being around one another for a year or two earlier than canon is something I'm not really sure how to handle. I mean, I've never had a particularly good grasp of Rei's character. I know she can be emotive, especially the longer she's around someone and if there's an attac...

Damn, hopefully things will look better when he gets back to good ol Tokyo-3, and I'm also looking forward to see how interacting with Rei at an earlier age will turn out. Good work so far.

Re: Until You Cum to Me -- A Semenal Analysis of the Hospital Scene

Your probably overthinking it, the whole point of the scene is to show, well how fucked up Shinji really is.
