If that means Shinji and ReiQ hooked up it'd bug me, since that would mean he'd traded one mother clone for another -- kinda skeevy IMO. But if it meant she was formally recognized as his sister that would be kinda cool. Too bad it's just a fan idea, but who knows? Zero chance of any sh...

. . . but he didn't fail the first time around. Honestly, I wish you and Ray would get a different playbook, because this is getting damn tiresome. The show doesn't say what you claim it does. Get over it already and move on. This is true in that Shinji wasn't really in a position to ac...

Scrivener. I love Scrivener. It is one of the most versatile writing tools I have ever used. I used to use Scrivener as well, but it always messed up my paragraph formatting whenever I tried to export the documents I'd created. For some reason, it would indent the first line, but none of the ot...

I'd say that EOE gives SxA a small chance of becoming possible with the final scene and MxK could also theoretically happen if both choose to return from the sea This is true, but we never get to see that outcome. It's left to the viewer's imagination, which is why for me it technically...

I don't count relationships that are a fundamental part of the story (such as those of Shinji with Rei and Asuka) as shipping; for me that term is by definition describing an inessential or even wildly contradictory add-on. This, pretty much. Shinji/Asuka, Misato/Kaji and Ritsuko/Gendo ...

I know there are Windows VMs for Macs, but I guess it's not always easy to implement? My boyfriend occasionally plays around with one on his Macbook, though he has a Windows machine, too. Funny that you should mention that, because I actually found your visual novel yesterday and played it usin...

It's actually an image taken from the holiday box set platinum edition of the Evangelion TV series. http://i.imgur.com/DSOk9dW.jpg Well, I'll be! No need to worry about asking permission, then. Also, what a misleading image for the boxset! You'd think they had some kind of well-develope...

My avatar image was nicked from someone on DeviantArt, used without their permission. I guess I just liked how dramatic the composition was.

I'm more of a Shinji/Rei shipper myself, but my god, I felt for Asuka in this manga. That poor girl just cannot catch a break. The narrative does nothing but make fun of her.

Also, no tragic backstory for Rei. How boring!

There isn't really anything to take seriously. The only plausible ships are all well and truly sunk in the actual show.

I have yet to see anyone here post such a sentiment, or even anything vaguely similar. Hmmm, I did phrase that rather inelegantly. It was more along the lines of "try listening for a change", since he never listens to the advice given to him in NTE. That was the impression I got from the ...

I don't think the messages are very different necessarily; I think NTE is seeking to expand upon the lessons of NGE and to go a step beyond them. I agree wholeheartedly. What struck me the most about the NTE films was the notion that even if the characters did overcome the issues they had in NG...

LightDragonman: I've noticed in all the Rei threads, you're concerned about Rei's overall development being dropped for FINAL, and I highly doubt they would drop it. It's been a major relationship throughout the NTE film series, it wouldn't make any sense to ignore either Rei in...

I have not seen the multiple people theory myself; first I've heard of it. Not a lot of people have, it seems. I'm guessing it's because no one here reads Rei/Shinji shipping fics. It's a common trope in those sorts of stories. As to its origins, that would appear to be the rear end...

Well, the fact that Shinji now thinks he's directly responsible for potentially billions of lives being lost with absolutely nothing to show for it understandably trumps simply finding out about Rei's origins. The notion that he at least saved her was all that was keeping him going after Ka...

Personally, I'm hoping for an epic troll from Anno where everyone forgives Shinji, Rei comes back to life, Gendo dies from falling down the stairs and the lessons of Q are conveniently forgotten.

Plus, he's more creeped out when he finds out about Rei's origins than anything. I really wish they'd shown us his reaction in more detail. We see a close-up of his shocked face when he learns the truth, but that's all, and from then on we see nothing more about how Shinji feels abo...

Really? I've never heard this before. What I usually see is people saying Rei is half Yui and half Lilith, making her Shinji's genetic half sister. Oh, I've seen this one before too. It's just that I've seen the "spliced together from loads of people" idea far more oft...
