Re: C.T.1290 versus Asuka. Examining the good and bad.

I dont mean to be insulting, and I apologize if I cross the line of being too personal (in which case I will delete this comment), but I think it would be a good idea for you to rewatch Ep. 16-26, especially the parts where the angels try communicating with the pilots to get a better understanding ...

Re: Meaning behind Asuka's Mom's Mixed Messages

Asuka resents her own dependence on the Evangelion for a sense of identity, and so she subconsciously wants to destroy it. Of course, the Evangelion is her mother, and that fits. She is both destroying her own inner dependence, and also destroying that on which she depends. Given that Asuka's mom g...

Re: C.T.1290 versus Asuka. Examining the good and bad.

It sounds like you're saying Asuka's parents are another victim of her unpleasant nature, rather than Asuka becoming unpleasant in the first place because of her parents. Soooo, I'm guessing that I got all mixed up on this. Basically, it was her mother's suicide that drove her down that path, follo...

Re: C.T.1290 versus Asuka. Examining the good and bad.

Not that Asuka is really all that mean since she's risked her life for her friends, tried to get them to value themselves more and put up with one of them trying to kill her. The part where she gets them to value themselves, was that during instrumentality? Or was it way before that? I can't rememb...

Re: Introduction, Toxicity of AsuShin and other things

If the whole relationship between Shinji and Asuka is toxic and hopeless, then why is it that Anno put them together in the first place? Especially towards the end? It's not like the shipping thing was his idea to begin with, nor was it his intention to go with it. I think it's certain that Shinji w...

Re: C.T.1290 versus Asuka. Examining the good and bad.

Are you including her parents in this? I'm not sure. Maybe, depending on if she is like that even in her early childhood. But I suppose her mother's suicide was a major factor behind all of Asuka's problems, and the main reason she is as she is in the series. And I don't think we're clear on how ma...

Re: C.T.1290 versus Asuka. Examining the good and bad.

Asuka is not a nice person. She's not. And that's exactly the kind of problem I have with her. She should be ashamed of herself. What has she actually done that was morally wrong besides be mean to Shinji? Basically, treating other people like shit, the same way she did with Shinji. It's this kind ...

Does Shinji deserve all the hate?

Shinji is disliked by, quite possibly, a majority of fans. And I think the same could be said about the other characters, such as Gendo, Asuka, etc. Meanwhile, he and the others get their fair amount of defense; sometimes reasonable, and other times illogical. And let's not forget that Shinji's acti...

Re: C.T.1290 versus Asuka. Examining the good and bad.

Now, would you (or anybody) be any of those things in the Eva universe? I think there are a few that comes a little closer than others. I guess the normal ones such as Toji, Kensuke, and Hikari. They're shown to be better characters than Asuka, and I guess Shinji. And Mari's a pretty good character...

Re: C.T.1290 versus Asuka. Examining the good and bad.

Define "good". Well, by good, I mean by a person who always do what is right(or as often as they can). And someone who doesn't always treat people like crap(which is exactly what Asuka did). And someone who is honest, self righteous, caring, kind, thoughtful, willing to help for other's s...

Re: C.T.1290 versus Asuka. Examining the good and bad.

^So I guess in the case of EVA, there's some bad people, and then there are the worse ones. And Gendo is obviously the worst one, and so are the members of SEELE. I'm not sure if Asuka (or Shinji even) is relatively close to Gendo's level, but still pretty bad nonetheless, as if there's little to no...

Re: Anyone else feel dislike towards EoE nowadays?

I absolutely despise EoE because of how much I love it. It's the culmination of everything that was built up in NGE, which means that: - Shinji attempts suicide. - Shinji sexually assaults Asuka. - Shinji attempts to kill Asuka. - Shinji tells Rei to destroy the individuality of every living being....

Re: If Shinji commits suicide...

Personally, I'm far more interested in the question of what would happen if Shinji got caught attempting suicide. Pissed off at him or not, that's a hell of a wake-up call to Misato and Asuka any way you slice it. And you get to see that wake-up call play out without sacrificing your main character...

Re: Thoughts on Asuka

After reading, thinking and rethinking a lot of theories on Asuka's behavior and speeches, I came to a conclusion myself: Someone should give her a Snickers. Perhaps to calm the fuck down. But then, I thought that, maybe , I've been a little too harsh on the poor girl having to deal through the edg...

If Shinji commits suicide...

...How do you think it would impact the series, as well as the cast? I have a feeling that when Shinji gets back aboard the Wunder, it will not end well for him. He'll most likely be sentenced to solitary confinement, and the crew, especially Misato or Asuka, will no doubt be hasher to him than ever...

Re: C.T.1290 versus Asuka. Examining the good and bad.

"It's not forgivable to yell at someone, but it is forgivable to try and kill someone!" Am I sensing some reverse psychology here? Asuka immensely deepened the show and offered a powerful foil to Shinji. If we on'y judge characters based on how much bad they did, Shinji is worse for the s...

Re: Shikinami or Soryu relationship with Shinji ?

I'm starting to think that Asuka isn't the right girl for Shinji, Soryu or Shikinami. Both of them have had a bad relationship with him. Asuka in the original series seem to despised him for personal reasons and is quite difficult to put up with, whereas Shikinami has the shared hatred of him as eve...

Say, CT. What's your stance on attempted murder? Coz, unlike Asuka, Shinji is guilty of that one. Was his presence in the show a mistake too? Maybe a little. But then again, he is the main character of show, whose sole purpose was to tell his story through his perspective. As for his "attempte...

Re: Introduction, Toxicity of AsuShin and other things

But then at the same time, both of them need someone who isn't a social failure to heal old wounds, so try as they might, they'll never be able to lean on each other the way they both clearly want to. What makes you sure that these two actually wanted to be with one another, and not out of some rag...
