Re: Shinji Post-Third Impact

That was after the TV series, not EoE, and it shows. Yes, according to an interview, he was "a broken person" during 4 years, which served as a basis for Evangelion. However, as far as I know, he also experienced other emotional breakdowns in more recent years. Not sure how much time it p...

Re: Shinji Post-Third Impact

I think Anno does a nice job ending the film right there, just after having shown us how broken people like Shinji and Asuka have returned to life. There was really no need, in my opinion, for him to add any extra scene, for his message of hope (a harsh, cynical hope) was already clear. As for Shinj...

Re: Introduction, Toxicity of AsuShin and other things

Yeah, that could be a part of how I was raised. Also, I have this belief that everyone should always do the right thing, or as often as they can, to set a good example to others every now and then. And you know how I tend to judge some others for not doing the right thing, but the wrong instead. Th...

Re: Introduction, Toxicity of AsuShin and other things

Then why is it that Anno put them together in the first place? Especially towards the end? . In my opinion, Anno did a good job portraying Hedgehog’s Dilemma through the characters he created, and the case of Asuka and Shinji is a very extreme, yet clear, way of showing that dilemma. He could have ...

Re: About ' EOE : I Need You '

The interactions of this scene are full of nuances, and it would be useless to look for an ultimate description of it, because there's not. That said, I don't think C.T.1290 is wrong saying that "Asuka called Shinji disgusting", and I actually agree with him. He didn't invent any dialogue,...

Re: Sakura Nagashi Theory - Rebuild & A Missing Character

Still no explanation, just a childish tantrum. If that's how you defend your ideas, you better find another way. Actually, you did the same when I proved you (with clear evidences) on another thread that "I Need You" wasn't the specific title of the Last Scene. But, of course, anyone who d...

Re: Sakura Nagashi Theory - Rebuild & A Missing Character

https://wiki.evageeks.org/Komm,_s%C3%BCsser_Tod Although the singer is a female, this song seems to be about Shinji's feelings once Third Impact occurs. Who's the ignorant who says that water isn't wet, anonymaus? Maybe it's you, or maybe EVA forums are just full of ignorants who can't see the truth...

Re: Sakura Nagashi Theory - Rebuild & A Missing Character

You will never convince anyone that Everything You've Ever Dreamed has nothing to do with Evangelion, for example. The musicians responsible for Everything You've Ever Dreamed were not Evangelion staff. Can you read properly? When did I say EYED has nothing to do with Evangelion? I just said I thin...

Re: Sakura Nagashi Theory - Rebuild & A Missing Character

Songs don’t have to be taken literally. It just feels stupid to try to analyze them in detail, in my opinion. Even more in this case, having been made by a pop singer, whose knowledge of Evangelion is dubtious (althout she claims that she's a fan of the series) and whose main job is to create "...

Re: Introduction, Toxicity of AsuShin and other things

@xanderkh: Some people might like Shinji, while others might not see enough good in him. And the same goes for Asuka, Misato, Gendou, etc. The fact that I don’t appreciate Shinji at all doesn’t mean that there aren’t people that do like him. And of course, after 3I, neither all the people Shinji and...

I think you explained it superbly, xanderkh, although I don’t really agree with the LAS-friendly Post-3I scenario, haha. That’s maybe the only thing I disagree with users like you, Chuckman or Bagheera. But, anyway, everyone have different tastes, I guess. It was a great analysis, in any case. Howev...

Re: Introduction, Toxicity of AsuShin and other things

Considering this is a show where a 27 year old woman made out with a 14 year old boy and promises sex afterwards in a manner that comes off as if she is being half sarcastic and half completely honest I think you may be applying your definition of "realistic" a bit too conveniently. The s...

Re: Introduction, Toxicity of AsuShin and other things

What truly boggles my mind is to hear people throwing words like “love” and “romance” blatantly ignoring that we’re talking about two traumatized children of 13 and 14 years old who are in the hormonal stage, who have severe intimacy issues, who desperately seek validation and understanding, who can...

Alles Gute zum Geburtstag , my beloved Asuka. I could use many words to describe how deep and sincere my appreciation for her is, and how much I relate to her and her tribulations. But it's no use writing a long eulogy here, when it can all be described by saying that she's the Crimson Empress of m...

Re: Introduction, Toxicity of AsuShin and other things

They can always learn that and by the end of the story they know a great deal more about social actions than they did beforehand. There's no reason they can't continue to address this problem. As it is, they interact more freely with each other than they interact with anyone else. Shinji's is the o...

Re: Introduction, Toxicity of AsuShin and other things

But what did the lack of communication stem from? self-hatred Indeed, but to that you need to add the genuine immaturity of two pubescent teenagers with no knowledge of human interactions. They hate themselves, as we're shown very clearly, but they're also kids after all. Even if they were normal t...

@synthmachine81: In situations like this, when someone claims that the fandom exaggerates when analyzing Asuka or Shinji or Misato comparing them to real people, I remember one funny response I read some time ago exploring the archives of EvaGeeks: “This is Evangelion, what did you expect?” . And, h...

Re: Introduction, Toxicity of AsuShin and other things

However, to say their relationship was consistently toxic is simply incorrect. Maybe this is another semantic disagreement we have. If not consistently , you might agree with me it was greatly or intensely toxic (if not mostly , but that's up to interpretation), which is evidenced by how terribly t...

Re: Introduction, Toxicity of AsuShin and other things

Are you seriously comparing masturbation by a 14yo boy with genocide or the Holocaust? May I ask where I said I was comparing them? It's not a comparison, but a Reductio ad absurdum , showing how such a logic would lead to very weird historical analysis. I said Holocaust as I could have mentioned a...
