Re: Introduction, Toxicity of AsuShin and other things

Forgive me if I'm interpreting your words wrongly, but the way you wrote "Other people can offer them pretty much only sympathy" implies that the “sympathy” normal people may be able to give Asuka and Shinji is something mediocre or poor. But, after all they’ve been through and the utter ...

Re: Introduction, Toxicity of AsuShin and other things

Couldn't the same thing about "wishful thinking" be said about ANY relationship? Because even in any relationship, no matter how "good" it may seem it may seem at the start, there's always a chance that something may change along the way: You may find out the person is not what y...

Re: ITT: You wish fictional characters a Happy Birthday.

Happy Birthday Asuka. It's now your Sweet Sixteen. Hope you have something special planned for today.

I know that someone else would have something special planned as well. :)

Re: Introduction, Toxicity of AsuShin and other things

Does anyone really believe that Shinji circa episode 1 would be capable of such an act? Definitely NOT. If anything, aside from him succumbing to his more primal urges, I think it was more him wanting to also convince himself that he's such an awful person, that this is justification enough to comm...

Re: What would Evangelion be without Shinji?

^ I don't think it's a matter of if we're "supposed" to not like him, more like try to recognized the tragedy of both his situation, and his life. While it's true I don't condone any of the bad actions he's done during the series, or nor can I forgive him for the lowest act he committed, t...

Re: What would Evangelion be without Shinji?

People don't like being reminded of the flaws that exist within themselves. That is why so many people are "hateful" toward Shinji, because they don't want to admit that they've been like him. We don't want to admit when we're weak or vulnerable.

Re: Love in evangelion

^ I think it's more accurate to say they don't know HOW to love. Or more likely, how to give love and accept the consequences from it. Both Asuka, Shinji, and pretty much everyone else with the emotional baggage all what the idea of "take and no give" version of love, unconditional love th...

Oh yeah, I forgot about that fic. :) I mostly remember that fic about Shinji coming to terms with the idea that you can't save everyone in war, but it's still a good fic, though I wish they had more time to see Shinji's life after his transition, like if ...

Re: FanFiction Requests/Recommendations/Discussion etc.

Have there been any fics that discuss what would happen to Shinji if he somehow LOSES his ability to pilot? Like somehow a major accident causes Yui, in an effort to protect Shinji, doesn't sync with him, reducing his sync rate to 0%, rendering him unable to pilot at all. I think I did once read a f...

Re: Is there any anime with better characters than NGE?

^ Exactly. The difference between most shows and NGE in general is that we focus more on the existence of problems of each of the main characters, instead of treating them as a half-an-hour problem to tackle like in most shows. NGE is more like real life, where your problems that define you as a per...

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

^ Then that begs the question about her relationship with Shinji? Is perusing a relationship with Shinji, someone who could naturally surpass her as a pilot, but never wanted the praise or the pride that came with it? Is choosing a relationship with him a step backwards...or a step forwards? And als...

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

^ It's not that it isn't possible or any relationship never EXISTED in the first place, or that they're doomed to hate each other C.T., it's just that because of both their upbringing and their defensive personalities prevent them from trying to break the shell of defenses that they have around thei...

No more ridiculous the amount of times Shinji is put in a dress. BUT, like Asuka, he can pull them off. XD

Re: Will Shinji Blame Misato If She Killed Kaworu With The Choker?

Shinji is wrong more than he's right, but that doesn't mean that everyone else is right. Would the battle with Sachiel have been so difficult at first if Gendo had simply called for Shinji earlier, so that he could be trained properly? Would he have let Bardiel nearly kill him if Gendo had simply e...
