Re: Grave markers at the end of EoE?

I wonder if he actually expected people to figure that out. Seems so vague. Anno has high standards for his audience.

Re: Anyone else feel dislike towards EoE nowadays?

The bolded part is exactly the problem I have with Asuka. This is the bold part: "Asuka takes all the rage and anger from her experiences, and her conflicting feelings about Shinji, and takes them out on him, vocally and physically." Would it change your mind if you considered Shinji's ac...

Re: Will Anno Try To Top The "Hospital Room Scene"? Can Anything Be As Messed Up?

*puts on her nasally voice* ACTUALLY, Asuka was far more likely to have been catatonic and/or "sedated for her own good" than she was "comatose". (Do people only say "comatose" because of stuff like Kill Bill , or just what the hell is actually going on?) I say comatos...

Re: “Do you love me” Theory - Asuka & Shinji Had Sex in Episode 15

Because if you buy this you already buy that Asuka is pissed over Shinji response to her. You are probably gonna have the same interpretation of now redundant kiss scene and scenes associated with the kiss scene. I guess you could have a different interpretation of the kiss scene along with the sex ...

"What about artistic need?"

Artistically this make other things seem redundant and pointless and even contradictory depending on interpretation. But definitely redundant regardless of interpretation.

Re: “Do you love me” Theory - Asuka & Shinji Had Sex in Episode 15

This has me tempted to rewatch the series for the first time in years, to see how it feels different. People should rewatch if their memories are foggy imo. This theory seems better than actually it is when watched out of context. It's why my opinion became more stern as we went along. At first I w...

Misato is the reason for the boost. I forget what she say but she compliments him and it goes to his head.

Re: “Do you love me” Theory - Asuka & Shinji Had Sex in Episode 15

Also which line is a memory, is it: "Say, Do you love me" or "Do you really love me" They come one after another and they are both exactly the same as far as context goes. It matters because it seems like you are making the choice arbitrarily and the second line implies Shinji sa...

Re: “Do you love me” Theory - Asuka & Shinji Had Sex in Episode 15

I have no idea what argument you're making right now, can you explain it in detail from the beginning? Also it's not worthy of bothering with a quote, but the idea that the credits lines are are worthless as evidence because they take place in the next episode, rather than the one that contains the...

Some of these arguments are really irrational and smell of emotional investment


Are you saying she was happy with Shinji's response to "Do you love me"?

That's his strongest evidence since he thinks it's a memory. You have to buy that it's a memory otherwise this doesn't work. But what evidence do you find convincing?

Re: “Do you love me” Theory - Asuka & Shinji Had Sex in Episode 15

You guys realize the theory is using words "do you love me?" as proof they had sex and she was upset about it but at the same time happy the next morning apparently. The theory itself even when taken as truth contradicts itself. This would have a really weird domino effect on other things.

Re: “Do you love me” Theory - Asuka & Shinji Had Sex in Episode 15

There also I think is a bit of sex bias going on here. The idea that sex is a better explanation than a kiss by virtue of it being "more" or "kissing is not enough". I think that's worth pointing out. Asking yourself if you have this sex bias.

Re: “Do you love me” Theory - Asuka & Shinji Had Sex in Episode 15

Asuka never mentions her 'mind' specifically anywhere in the whole sequence. "kokoro" can mean heart/mind/soul depending on context. The intended surface level understanding of the scene is obviously that it's a 'mindrape' she's talking about. The surface level understanding of a scene in...

Re: “Do you love me” Theory - Asuka & Shinji Had Sex in Episode 15

I also don't think Arael did any raping in the entirety of this scene. The way Arael did things was surprisingly... I don't want to say 'fair', but something like "lawyer-esque." He was just presenting evidence to Asuka which she was previously in denial of. She had previously been tellin...

No I dislike people too much. And it's probably inhuman so it might as well be death.

Re: “Do you love me” Theory - Asuka & Shinji Had Sex in Episode 15

I liked this. I agree with The Cruel, with in the scene itself it doesn't really make sense. I also take a lot of the sex from those moments as being metaphorical for being "one" since being one is presumably intimate like sex. In the mind rape scene it could just be the angel "raping...
