Re: Why do Evas even use firearms if they don't work?

It usually depends on how strong an angel's AT field is. Even though they don't kill angels instantly, the pallet rifles are usually used to bring down their AT fields before destroying their cores; kinda like their health bar, so to speak. Their field can only take so much damage before it's neutra...

Re: Synchronisation battle: Why was Shinji paired with Asuka?

Misato was completely bluffing when she said she could pair Rei with Shinji. Realy??? I thought she was being serious there. There's a reason Rei wasn't with the two of them in their initial engagement with Israfel; Unit-00 was still damaged from Operation: Yashima, Oh, I guess I forgot about that ...

Synchronisation battle: Why was Shinji paired with Asuka?

During the fight against Israfel, Shinji and Asuka were forced to work together to defeat it, but had to practice synchronizing before defeating it. So why is it that Hideaki Anno decided to have them paired together for something like this? These two obviously had a rough start, which was made appa...

Re: If Shinji commits suicide...

Nothing Anno does could draw as much emotion out of me out of me as this. https://i.redd.it/hxnbymqw37sx.jpg I used the last frame of that as my avi for a while.

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...
