Re: You Can Start Again

Don't really read much eva ff, just a few post EoE or post 3.0 stuff. Yours though, has been a good enjoyable read. I thought the suicide attempt was well done, Shinji has always been a fish out of water type character, especially in 3.0 and i liked that you kept that up in your fic. In the previous...

Re: So who here is into Samurai Jack?

I must admit the finale gave me feels. I kinda knew it was coming but still, seeing Ashi disappear and Jack crying was tough to watch. Worse when you consider all the people he met in the future will likely also not exist anymore. Damn, 13 years and it's finally over, bittersweet ending and all it w...

Re: Should Asuka die in the final film?

^ Probably confine him again and Asuka might chew him out for doing dumb stuff, but they'll likely explain everything to him as they were starting to before NERV came a knocking. Asuka i think is acting similarly to Misato, outwards she acts harsh but still having a soft spot for Shinji. That entry ...

Re: Should Asuka die in the final film?

Like, from the beginning EVA was this show about a cvilization so pushed to the brink that they have to resort to child soldiers, a "harsh & pragmatic world where feeling seems to have no place" - in a way Q is simply a more extreme version of that. That's not entirely accurate though...

Re: Stuff that you would like to see in 3+1

^ If i'm thinking of the right scene, isn't that because the mark 04s were being pulled from their protective "cocoon" and that's why it looked like dozens of individual hexagonal tiles?? So my guess it was intentional to show them being pulled out.

Re: Stuff that you would like to see in 3+1

One thing i don't want to see about Shinji finding hope is that it isn't an impersonal altruistic reason, like finding that humanity isn't as screwed as he originally thought. It would seem too messianic for the kind of character Shinji is. His reasons for piloting were always a little selfish, want...

Re: Stuff that you would like to see in 3+1

They did treat him poorly though, granted Misato had excuses being the captain of the Wunder and leader of WILLIE so she had responsibilities towards that. In the end though her treatment of him had pros and cons but with her intentions being good. Asuka though, during the briefing what the hell was...

Re: Is Asuka really deserving of sympathy?

I don't think NERV or Seele groomed the pilots to accept instrumentality, i think they just didn't care about them since they were just a means to an end. All they needed them for was the elimination of the angels, and this led to setbacks to both of em. Seele lost the lance and NERV lost Rei II, al...

^ Mari was also urging him to stop being naive and get to know there world as she was ejecting him so there is also that. As far as Mari being the one that dies, i'm not sure how effective that would be. For a death to be effective there should be an emotional connection to a character for it to mea...

Re: Should Asuka die in the final film?

I wouldn't say they "ignored" his status as an Impact trigger, since that's the very reason they gave him a bomb collar. I'll keep it brief to not derail too much anymore. Ignored perhaps wasn't the best way to put it, but what i got from Ritsukos' genuine surprise that NERV wanted Shinji...

Re: Should Asuka die in the final film?

Just because Shinji is the main character doesn't mean the world actually revolves around him. But it was an in-universe cruel sense of irony that that ended up being the case. WILLIE made the mistake of thinking just because they didn't "need" him doesn't no one else does and ignored wha...

Re: Anno apologizes for 4th film delay

^ They could always do OVAs' after 4.0 if they wish to explore that time period. Perhaps focused on different characters PoVs.

I hope they don't rush it though and take their time with it. Rather wait 1 or 2 more years for quality than for something rushed.

Re: Coming back after instrumentality

I always interpreted as there being a time limit on how far back it works, otherwise there'd be serious overpopulation issues. There's also the quote in the OP, Asukas arm was split in half when she died, yet she comes back with an intact bandaged arm. That gives some interesting implications if say...

Re: I need your help

I gotta agree with the sentiment that others have said that it wasn't black/white choice between Asuka and Rei. While interpretations could be made for it, ultimately that wasn't what was displayed in the show + EOE. Rei was the avatar of the "deity" giving the choice to Shinji between the...

Re: Why did Asuka tell Shinji she didn't receive his help?

^ Well it depends on what happens in 4.0. Though i suspect they'll be shown to be friends once again by then, since Shikinami isn't as broken as Soryu and Shinji will likely have others to help him through his ordeal. It'll depend on whether Shinji is willing to listen and learn from others while st...

Re: Why did Asuka tell Shinji she didn't receive his help?

I hope this isn't a necro but since it's still in the front page i hope it's ok to give my thoughts on this after recently rewatching 3.0. In a way this particular line as well as her overall behavior towards Shinji reminded me of the love/hate dynamic Shinji/Soryu had in NGE, though obviously it is...
