Re: Shinji Post-Third Impact

Well, Shinji himself basically concludes that he'll probably continue to ask himself the same questions and encounter hardship, that so I don't assume he'd be all that different except somewhat more mature and with something of a resolution to stick it out to the end, perhaps a certain Amor Fati in ...

Re: What do you think Shinji would enjoy learning to cook?

Well, Asuka mentions something about Shinji being unable to handle the spicy in 2.0, but that might just be her assumption rather than the reality.

Of course there would be some hilarity if it were true.... and Gendo was exactly the same

Re: Best Pair: What Eva Characters Do You Ship?

Rei isn't afraid of being replaced, she knows she's replaceable and has resigned herself to that fate. Those two things don't neccessarily contradict each other - She may have accepted it as an unchanging fact of life and still feel aun unpleasant tug in the pit of her stomach when she contemplates...

Re: What do you think Shinji would enjoy learning to cook?

^ That sounds about right. Though I'd guess it happened every time he cooked something specifically for Asuka. But I think you left out the part where Asuka wonders silently why Shinji isn't asking to eat with her, and muttering "Baka Shinji" while she blushes as she walks away. ^_^ [Rebu...

Re: What do you think Shinji would enjoy learning to cook?

Well IMO, not specific dishes, but things his friends would enjoy eating. Shinji tries his best to please people, and perfecting their favorite dishes would make him feel happy. As for himself, Shinji may be adventurous enough to buy a cookbook and then just try to see how well he can cook it. This...

Re: What would Evangelion be without Shinji?

I do think the rest of the characters and the setting itself have enough 'juice' to work. You could probably have Asuka, Misato or even Rei as a MC though in each case it would subtly change the flavor. Rei would have all the exposition from the beginning so she'd have to be 'opaque' to the viewers ...

Re: Why people hate this show nowadays?

But is it really a loss if they don't watch EVA? If what they want is flashy shit they wouldn't get anything out of it. Fashion moves on, eventually it swings back, not everyone likes the same things. I mean, I just don't GET people who don't watch older media because it's not super flashy (isn't it...

Re: Did Anno Seek to Undermine Rei with Rebuild?

How about the radical idea that Anno has an actual story to tell? To me it seems pretty apparent that he just wanted to squeeze the full potential out of the Sci-fi horror. ReiQ is nothing but a logical extreme of the "replaceable artificial soldier" thing that was never pursued that far i...

Re: What if Shinji and Asuka were told about mother’s souls in Eva ?

They would obviously be freaked out, not just because of the inherent grotesque horror or because their mothers are sore spots, but because of the beliefs they had early on. Asuka was really fixated on seeing the EVA as a nonliving object she could controll since she's freaked out by all things unca...

Re: First look at Unit 08 and Mari from the theatrical teaser for 3.0+1.0

So it's happening. Obvously it's generic battle footage (though it nicely showcases the Q-era 360 cocpit or possibly even an update to it) that may or may not be in the movie, you can't even see what she's shooting at, though it's cool that she is in an "extra cyborg" eva as she was in her...

Re: Do You Think Rei Was Un-Tanged Shortly After "Kimochi Warui"?

The question is less wether she'd want to but whether she can come back, and whether I'd fit into the cosmology andthematic style of the show. She doesn't really have a body anymore and could be considered to have ascended to a higher level of consciousness; Besides she was always very much presente...

Re: What would Rei be like with a little more personality?

You just gotta pay attention. Taste is subjective and all that and obviously she's a stylized, exaggerated portrayal steeped in fictional elements (as is everyone else - I mean, a college student with model looks, seriously?), but she's not that far beyond some widespread realistic personality types...
