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

You know, it is possible to be ROYALLY pissed off at someone, but still grow to care for said person. Like how our parents would still love us even after we've screwed up how many times in our lives for being spoiled brats. Emotions are complicated, and it actually takes quite a lot to hate someone ...

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

But, if Shinji WERE to die somehow in the Final movie, or at any point, I think it would fundamentally hurt a good number of the cast members (Misato and Asuka especially) to a huge degree. They may regard Shinji as a threat, but I believe that parts of them, Misato especially, feel immense regret f...

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

"Human compassion" in Eva is just a tool to make someone do or don't do something. You can recognize rare examples of genuine compassion by that, they are soon punished by Anno pulling diabolus ex machina for oh so beloved gut punches. :tongue: Oh, like Sakura, Touji's sister, was to Shin...

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

The show needs him alive but contained because his death would go bad with the public and if he's alive at least some audiance will be entartained by his constant fails and humilation. Apparently, "human compassion" doesn't factor in to another reason why Shinji won't die, aside from just...

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

Sacrifice of a loose canon and a dumb one at that, is preferable to a problems he may cause for mankind. It's for the grater good after all. And if they can't pull the trigger, if he does it for them, all the better. No moral dilemma, and questionable threat removed. They can focus on saving the wo...

Re: The Creative Principle

Okay, I just finished reading the recent chapter, and MAN is it visceral, especially from Asuka's perspective. I could actually FEEL the frustration and exhaustion she felt towards her situation, especially with her on "temp leave" from her job. You'd think she'd make an effort to actually...

Apparently you've missed Asuka's attempts to garner some ATTENTION from Shinji in the series. Does "thermal expansion" ring a bell? XD

I figured that. I was pointing out the irony of that statement, considering the direction Shinji took to "save" the world both times, by getting in an Eva.

^ I would be a idiot to expect a better ending in 3.0+1.0, than in NGE and EoE. It should end the way it deserves. I don't care how. I would agree with you on just getting it over with, unless it doesn't end with Shinji's death or the burning bridges of all his relationships. :P Honestly, if that h...

Re: "Anno intended Rei to be creepy"

Anno apparently glossed over (or did he), the idea that human beings can sympathize with all kinds of people, even the most "alien" and socially inept of people. Some people are drawn to that to want to understand why people are like that. :) It's probably one of our best traits as a speci...

Re: Evangelion's site and Facebook/Twitter covers updated with new images - First teases of Shin Eva

If I want to be honest with myself, I'm actually kind of hesitant of Final, considering the emotional turmoil we've experienced both from 3.0, and the turmoil outside the movies, especially here on Evageeks. I kind was slightly happy that we didn't receive any news about Final, to avoid said turmoil...

Re: Is it impossible for Shinji and Asuka to love one another?

Personally, I think Shinji and Asuka may need some time apart to explore other avenues, and like you said Pwhodges, to put their trauma's behind them.

Then, maybe, just maybe, they can see something in each other that's irreplaceable to other people. :)

Re: Is it impossible for Shinji and Asuka to love one another?

^ Well, like Felipe, both the Anno and the VAs have multiple viewpoints when it comes to their own character. Miyamura may say that Asuka doesn't like Shinji, while Anno hints otherwise. It kind of adds to the multi-dimension of a character, like a real person having doubts or contradictions in thei...

Re: Why are Rei and Asuka often portrayed together?

Simple rule of male fanservice dude:

1+1=2: More is better. XD

And Shinji does get his share of advertising, such as modeling for the newest fashion which he does pull off, but apparently the "male gaze" sells more. Care to guess why? XD

Re: Is it impossible for Shinji and Asuka to love one another?

This is rather surprising. Asuka's voice actress, the person who seems to know Asuka real well for having her step into her shoes, saying that she doesn't like Shinji. And yet, she is rumored to have had a Doujinshi about Shinji and Asuka(which may or may not have Asuka be a little out of character...
