Re: Introduction, Toxicity of AsuShin and other things

So these two were doomed to fail, huh? Or unintentional? I guess I shouldn't be surprised, considering the way they treated each other throughout the series and especially towards the end. I've been reading this thread for sometime now, so now I think I'll take this time to post my thoughts into th...

Re: Introduction, Toxicity of AsuShin and other things

Well it depends on how its written :tongue: I think a main thing in their romance is that they have to acknowledge the people they are/were and make positive changes. They can make those changes together or individually and then come together afterwards. I'm a very obvious AsuShin shipper but I can...

Re: Introduction, Toxicity of AsuShin and other things

A relationship doesn't need to have all it's issues "fully reconciled" for it to be potentially positive. And issues don't need to reconcile immediately to eventually be reconciled. You're blatantly ignoring a great deal of what we're shown throughout the series if you don't think there's...

Re: Introduction, Toxicity of AsuShin and other things

The thing about Asuka and Shinji's relationship is that it good( well it could have be good) and toxic at the same time. They are in some sense perfect for each other, both having faced the same trauma with the dead mother, absent father, piloting eva, and general loneliness. But at the same time th...

Re: What You Did NOT Like About Evangelion

IIRC, the voice actor or Anno explained the intent was to connect back to the masturbation scene and to have Asuka's reaction regarding it. It's worth noting it can also be translated to "I feel sick" To me the most important evidence is always in the actual work, and Asuka gives Shinji a...

Re: What You Did NOT Like About Evangelion

b. My main issue is the ending dialogue, "how disgusting" or "I feel sick": The first problem is that when you are watching the movie, unless you happen to hear Asuka's voice actor explain what it was referring to, you'd think it was referring to Shinji crying, instrumentality i...

Re: Love in evangelion

I have to agree with Sachi, the Shinji wants Asuka to love him, but doesn't really love her in return, and I would say the same in reverse.

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.
