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

Have you read any fanfics which explore the possibilities for Asuka to develop further after EoE ? I've read quite a few of them; The Catalyst by Jcmoorehead, You are (not) at fault by MisterHalt, Scar Tissue by Deathbringer, The 2nd Try by JimmyWolk, and some others that are one shots, and some I ...

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

You've been given two examples in the past few posts. You mean the part where she snuck into Shinji's hospital room and caressed Shinji's face at the end? We saw her caress Shinji; and beyond that you seem to be once again denying the possibility of growth and change that you haven't already seen (...

Re: Wait so how did Spoilers die in EoE?

What do you mean by this? People are just souls in Instrumentality. Well, unless the consciousness was still there, she might have pictured herself the same way Shinji did. And someone in there, wether Rei or someone else, might have seen the injuries she'd sustained, and decided to heal her wounds...

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

To be fair to say that she's incapable of any positive traits is very unethical, Unethical how? Showing concern for Shinji is a huge step up for her character in a positive light, What we do know is what's presented in the story, and Anno made it very apparent to us that Asuka at the very least mad...

Re: Shinji's View of Asuka + NGE Card Game Canon Corroboration

It is said that Shini and Asuka are "attracted" to each other or wanting each other's company. But as far as attraction goes, that might be a stretch there. As you can tell, a lot negative things happened between them, so their relationship was rather toxic. Shinji might have some feelings...

Re: Is Gendo Jealous of Shinji? (and will we explicitly see it?)

Well, in the manga, Gendo did say he was jealous of Shinji for "having Yui to himself". She might have given Shinji more attention than she did with Gendo. As for seeing it happen in the final film, one can certainly hope so, and maybe get some answers that might have been boggling us for ...

Re: Wait so how did Spoilers die in EoE?

Well, we did see her arm get split in half while her eye was bleeding out. And she might have felt the Spears piercing her a dozen times over before her EVA was torn in pieces (and probably her as well), so she might have supposedly died from injuries. I've also wondered who might have patched her u...

Re: Evangelion Pic Thread 10: The Society for the Appreciation Of The Premium Girl (and her friends)

Moments like this between Shinji and Asuka make me hardly doubt whether they deserve their happiness and love for one another. After all they failed each other and made each other suffer. Their conflict ends only one way: HAPPINESS AND LOVE IS SOMETHING THEY CAN NEVER HAVE!!!!! You're not the only ...

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

Asking questions for other people to answer does not seem to be giving you what you're looking for, and you know what they say about doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Well, the thing is, no matter what sort of answers I get in regarding Asuka's character, I still h...

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

You know, looking back on some of these posts and upon reflecting on them, I began to wonder, how can some people on here be so positive and certain that Asuka really isn't this bad or mean person I've been making her out to be? And that she has the potential to make things right with Shinji and oth...

Re: Make me feel better about Evangelion.

Watch FLCL if you haven't seen it already (or just re-watch it). It'll make you feel better. The show is a comedy that makes fun of the mecha genre, including Evangelion, and has a very Shinji-like protagonist. It's very well-done and has a happy ending, too. I remember seeing that show. Been a whi...

Re: If Mari is british...

I've been watching the latest episode of Lupin the Third part IV on Toonami, and there are some guys with British accents. So I don't think that would be a problem if Mari did end up having a British accent.

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

^Hmmm. I've never really expected that Asuka would actually feel guilty (ashamed even) for the way she treated others. I'm willing to bet that after Instrumentality, she would look back on how she was before, do some self reflection, and later feel bad for the way she's been towards people, includin...

And they are all mixed up; the world is grey, as are the people in it. Such a simplistic view (that people can be simplified to either "good" or "bad") is bound to lead to disappointment in practice, and may even have dangers; fiction which espouses this view is loses impact as ...

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

I think you people who try to guess if Asuka is "bad" or "good" are treading water. The way you formulate the question makes me guess that you think there is a "deep inside" Asuka, don't you? For what I think, you want to like(or understand) Asuka, but you can't ignore...

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

So, what would Shinji have to do to earn everyone's forgiveness and trust? And how will the people of WILLE make up for the cold treatment they've given to Shinji? Especially Misato and Asuka? From the look of things, they might have a lot of work to regain each other's trust. And it might take a lo...

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

Contrary to what seems to be the popular opinion amongst Asuka, um... challengers, I actually think that Asuka deserves to feel the immense pride that she does for the things she's accomplished. Asuka graduated college before the age of 13. (Basically imagine Chiyo Chan from Azumanga Daioh in colle...

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

Based on the volume of your Asuka-related posts, I'd say she definitely has a hold on you — does she remind you of a terrible ex-girlfriend or something? Why dwell on this topic for so long? Well, to be brutally honest, I've never had a girlfriend in my life, nor am I rushing for one. The reason I ...
