Re: I feel like Shinji will withdraw from everyone in 1.0+3.0

Nope just Linkin Park :hitthetable: :lol: As big of a part as Linkin Park played in my formative years, "Numb" and "In The End" are not gonna turn the mess hall into the coolest hangout on the Wunder, I'm sorry to say. But Redbone's "Come and Get Your Love"? The sky's ...

Re: I feel like Shinji will withdraw from everyone in 1.0+3.0

I think this depends on what Wille does with him. If Misato gives him nothing to do except wander the ship and try not to break anything, I assume he'll spend a lot of time making himself as scarce as possible and speaking to no one unless they initiate conversation with him. In that case, I think h...

Re: If Shinji commits suicide...

Misato may feel a pang, and Asuka, we don't know enough about Shikinami to gauge her reaction, but if he offs himself, she (and many others) may view it as admittance of his guilt. I don't think there's much evidence in 3.0 to support this statement. They finally get him back after all these years ...

Re: You Can Start Again

Wow, that twist at the end was definitely unexpected. I look forward to seeing how Shinji tries to navigate having to see Misato again, since I imagine he still probably feels a lot of anxiety about that. In fact, given all the mistakes he's made and the fact that he's not even sure she ever wants t...

Re: If Shinji commits suicide...

Wasn't Instrumentality sort of a metaphor for suicide in the first place? I would be very surprised if Anno goes the route of "You have to stop committing suicide in every continuity, by doing it for real this time." But I would also be very surprised (and disappointed) if 3.0+1.0 doesn't ...

Re: If Shinji commits suicide...

Hate never had to be rational. In GoT, Tywin and Cersei hate and despise Tyrion for having "killed his mother" at birth and for being a dwarf, shaming the family; Catelyn Stark hated and despised Jon Snow for being a bastard to Ned Stark. They probably know that this hatred is irrational,...

Re: If Shinji commits suicide...

Considering Wunder usually flights at high speed, it would be hard to prepare net on such a short notice. Besides, net is a waste of time and resources that could be used for saving the world. They're not obligated to pamper the brat. Saving someone from suicide is not "pampering," and no...

Re: If Shinji commits suicide...

Personally, I'm far more interested in the question of what would happen if Shinji got caught attempting suicide. Pissed off at him or not, that's a hell of a wake-up call to Misato and Asuka any way you slice it. And you get to see that wake-up call play out without sacrificing your main character ...

Re: How do you like your Gendo?

(On a side note, a Super-Dad!Gendou such as portrayed in Shinji Ikari Raising Project is a hilarious read, if comedy is your thing) However I personally write Gendou as a man whom does love his son, even if he has no clue how to show it. (more or less my interpretation of the character after seeing...

Re: How do you like your Gendo?

Gendo is most interesting to me in the hands of a writer who understands that his villainy, emotional neglect of Shinji and Rei, and callousness make him pathetic as a person and as a father. He's an evil man. He's also a very weak, emotionally fragile person who's too much of a coward to face real ...

Re: Rebuild is shallow tangent

I'd also like to use this post to say that Rebuild is really amazingly bad, especially 3.0, and anyone who pretends otherwise is practicing wishful thinking.

Re: The Shinji Ikari Rebuild Project

I still don't really believe that they actually care for him. Remember Misato wanted to blow his head off and Asuka wanted to take Shinji down while in Terminal Dogma. No, because neither of them actually wanted either of those things, which is why: 1.) Misato did NOT blow his head off 2.) Asuka we...

The way I see it. It's like when you hate someone for wronging you in a very intimate way. You say "I wish they were dead" or "I hope something awful happens to you for what you did to me" and in the moment you mean it. But then something bad actualy DOES happen to the person yo...

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

So, what would Shinji have to do to earn everyone's forgiveness and trust? Deciding to fight for humanity's future with no expectation of forgiveness or reward is a possibility I'd like to see fleshed out. Not in the sense that he's given up on life or trying to die, but in the sense of maturely an...
