Re: How do you like your Gendo?

I suppose "dark byronic anti hero" opr at the very least "tragic villain", both because I believe this to be more interesting than a disney villain, and because that's what I believe to be accurate. That said the plot of a given fanfic often necessitates that he be the antagonist...

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

Well, I think her hair in the manga is more strawberry-blonde than true redhead like the anime. Or an alternative theory, probably used all the red ink on Unit-02 or Asuka's plugsuit. Perhaps it was supposed to look more "realistic." Even I didn't know human hair could be that orange unti...

Re: What parts of yourself do you see in Evangelion's characters?

I'm currently in this weird place where my position and struggles in life begins to be closer to Misato's than that of the Pilots.

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

It's not just relatability or empathy but a tension within the movie itself - Shinji gets to see the worst of their attitudes toward him rather than the moments that suggest a lingering attachment somewhere, and they don't really process Shinji's side to is as they once would have, like if everyone ...

Re: Who cooks better: Asuka or Rei

In part it's kinda part of the point that neither would be very good because they both, in different ways, lead lives very focussed on single purposes with little time taken to expand, smell the roses & enjoy the mundane. Asuka's very much a "career person" looking for the grandiose pa...

Re: From Your Lips to the Author's Ears: Story Ideas

There's the hint of some bad blood between them -- look at the way Asuka squints at Misato when she says, "Isn't that right, Captain Katsuragi?" Not enough to get in the way of what needs to be done in the present, but something emotionally unresolved regardless. This might be subjective/...

Re: How To Characterize Shinji As An Adult?

I feel that scene is often mis-construed (by Shinji as well as us). Gendou doesn't use Shinji's hands - he disables and bypasses them. If Shinji had been prepared to use his hands at that moment, he could have avoided the conflict with Gendou (regardless of the outcome of dealing with Bardiel). In ...

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

I've long wondered why Kaji and Misato's child in that picture looks so like Shinji... Since Misato has her Q hair, I assumed that he defeated Neo Nerv at the cost of getting shrunk Sailor Saturn style in a heroic sacrifice to atone for his sins, & they adopted him with the airm to "raise ...

Re: Who was Kaworu's body a clone of?

Shinji was the child of his body, and Rei the child of his making. Asuka was just another NERV staff member - and how often does the CEO speak to a shop floor worker? This. He pays Misato good bucks to deal with the pilots, & has no reason to interact with her, he's not the sort to just chat wi...

Because nobody cares (sexually) about Shinji... and for good reasons. Neither boys nor girls... right? :bigeyes: :bigeyes: AFAIK he has plenty of fangirls in Japan & fangirls are a thing in general especially with anime. See for example the amount of fangirl lust our very own Kaworu engenders. ...

As for why it happened the way it did -- self-loathing, like you said. Yui gives him the violent end he feels he deserves. But it's in the form of the Eva-01 who absorbed something into herself by eating it. Both Gendo's desires are satisfied at once: He receives punishment, but he also gets taken ...
