No indication of romantic crap? Dude, look at what's already been said. Hearts on the script itself. HEARTS, for God's sake. I'm betting that if anything tormented her, it was that she knew Ritsuko would never go and be hers, being that she was heterosexual (the affiliation with Gen...

The Kaji scene makes me giggle either way. She's just adorable in it. And even if the EoE scene suggests she's a lesbian, it seems to do so in a way that also suggests that she didn't "know" she was a lesbian until that moment... but to be honest, in my purely hypothetical argu...

Okay, so lets for argument's sake rule out lesbianism, and try to formulate another interpretation. What does psuedo-Ritsuko type when Maya's being complemented? "I need you." One could infer that, while it isn't as noticeable for her as it is with the main characters, Maya suf...

If you're not part of the US Con-going circuit, then having had chance to see it officially is unlikely; and I have heard nothning good about the quality of less honourable means of rectifying the omission. The version I have access to is pretty meh-quality, although the video isn't much wo...

Kaworu tells Shinji "I love you." Shinji has never experienced this before. Shinji labels this experience as love. That's an oversimplification of the relationship, but I'm guessing that's what promps Shinji to say he loved Kaworu. That doesn't stop me from referring to Kaw...

I'd be happy just with an overview of the bajillion flashing images.
(I know, I could look at them myself with my DVD player, but what's the fun in that?)

"You're the same as me. Both of us ended up in Lilim-shaped bodies while we live on this planet." I knew you'd use that line, heh. I'm definately not saying I'm right, for sure. Just voicing my thoughts. That line is actually a bit odd anyway, considering the amount of tim...

Kaworu doesn't quite think of himself as Adam, even if he is aware of it. He refers to Adam in the third person, refers to adam as "our mother," and seems to consider himself his own unique being, the Lilim form of Adam, again somewhat like Jesus, in a twisted sense. It seems almost li...

True, but how does Shinji view Kaoru? As the first person to treat him with genuine kindness? Even Misato was just showing pity, doing her job, and trying to get him to open up by being nice to him, and Toji and Kensuke were just "the guys," becoming friends just because they were in the ...

Maternity = woman's role. Kaworu = boy. Maternal boy = gay. http://www.evageeks.org/ANF-Archive/images/../images/lol.gif I don't think that's true, certainly, but I can at least follow the process to that comclusion, in a sense. Anyway, I think Rei's maternal connection to Shinji is ...

Kaji was portrayed as being this super attractive James Dean-ish bad boy, but Shinji never really messed with him at all. Once again, the best line ever is relevant: Ryoji Kaji: So, can I buy you a drink? Cup o' tea? Shinji Ikari: Kaji, I'm a boy. Originally posted on: 28-Mar-2006, 08:43 GMT

Shinji seems to find Rei fascinating, but he doesn't appear to be attracted to her the way he is to Asuka.

Eww, that's a lot more detail than the DVD seems to show... I guess I should thank Manga for their bad transfer keeping me from having to see that @_@

He does that quite a bit, though. He doesn't know what he wants, which is why instrumentality goes through so many odd phases.

I've never had a whole lot of problem with the issue of why Kaworu loves Shinji. First off, the way he says it is like he doesn't think it's a big deal. I always assumed that he just loves everyone, in a Jesus kind of way. I'm not sure if that still applies, but it seems to suit his ...

I think that's a big part of why he can't connect with any of the main characters of the show. I think he "loved" Kaworu because Kaworu loved him, and that's what he thought he'd been looking for, in a sense.

Heh. Who says that when I called Shinji a girl, I was referring to his weakness? Maybe I was referring to his essencially female character design, hmm? No offense to actual girls by comparing them to Shinji, but I get the impression that "feminine" is an intentional part of Shinji's ch...

Maybe Kaworu's actually straight, and he finds Shinji attractive because Shinji's such a freakin' girl?
