[Fic] The Man behind the Pose: Gendo Ikari

So I'm horribly remiss when it comes to a lot of things: I haven't been around this forum all that often lately, I keep forgetting to read Crying Man and I really have been more of a mess than normal. Anyway...since Reichu is actually getting to work on Akira now, I thought I'd try to ta...

Yeah. As far as I remember, Hikari was probably one of the nicest people to be around in that group - the stern class rep image hid a far sweeter person.

Don't you think Asuka or her relatives would become suspicious if Nerv took her body to be salvaged after the suicide? Asuka was a little girl at the time, and we do see her at Kyoko's funeral. It's entirely possible that Nerv dug up the coffin and extracted the soul from the body post-...

You have some interesting observations in there - although I'll join the rest of the crowd in pointing out the problem with the Toji/Asuka abusive relationship. The fact that Shinji gets an old shirt of Toji's in 3.0 suggests strongly that Toji is dead - either killed in the Zeruel battle or...

I just threw in the Imperial units as a placeholder - I've been used to using Imperial Units for heights and Metric for everything else, which is why I tend to put distances on a map in kilometers but height in feet and inches! I'll be including both for the sake of convenience to everyone.....

That because the truth is harsh for those who can't handle it. Well, the harsh truth is that you're never going to go on the wiki. Handle it. In any case, for anyone who's inclined, I've got a new page on character designs started and I do need help with good screenshots - of the ch...

Come to think of it, I don't recall anything about Gendo's background being revealed apart from what was given in the show - Yui gets more background because at least some of the supplemental materials state that her father was a Seele member (although probably not one of the core commit...

Re: Anno-sama Was Openly Trolling

A part of me wishes he WOULD write something original, though he has the green thumb for making other peoples' stories great. Not every original thing is great and not every adaptation is bad. Take a look at, say, Akira Kurosawa. Several of his movies were original screenplays that were highly ...

^ Hmm, put that way... I always wondered why Gendo wanted to start instrumentality when he pretty much said that death brings nothing, but now I see what he was aiming for all along. Also, I'm not sure I would make Gendo's social ineptitude a gender-specific thing. He has trouble with intima...

If not for bad luck she would have been the designated pilot of Unit 01 and Shinji never would have had to be involved. I'm guessing that it wasn't bad luck as much as it was a consequence of Gendo screwing over another woman in his life - Rei 1 in this case - and not really thinking of wha...

A groundhog day loop seems far more plausible than this being some kind of straightforward sequel. Having all the Rebuild movies turn out to be a sequel to End of Evangelion would really kill the impact (pun intended) What do you have against a version of Kaworu that's female with male s...

Gendo is a robot. Was that not clear in the series? Hisashiburi, Hex. And no, he's not a robot - he's a cyborg. Way cooler! :tongue: Gendo is anything but Spock. I was thinking about Ritsuko's dialogue with Naoko about how the relations between women and men have no logic to them, and t...
