She probably was at the time. I said what I said for a reason. As far as we knew at the moment Asuka was dead and Shinji appeared to be the only one pissed off about it. It segues into his rant at his father for everything he's done to him, but the first thing Shinji says (paraphrased) i...

The scene's really left up to interpretation; it's all in how you're viewing it. And you have a point; Anno even got rid of EVA-02 and EVA-00 with plot contrivances just to drive home that this will be Shinji's story. But to get more to the point, the Dummy Plug incident was the stra...

Not in the slightest. Unless you somehow consider a soldiers who's face has been maimed by a teenagers incompetance is somehow equal to the plight of the same whiny teenager who's mad his dad doesn't like him. Except in any sane universe Asuka wouldn't be considered a soldier. Reall...

I'm going to throw this out here. After watching the whole thing (well, most of it), in conjunction with the ending of 2.0, I can't help but wonder. Did WILLE think that Shinji was the 13th Angel? The collar activated when the 13th's blue pattern activated, and combined with Rits...

Ohh....I did. Shinji just comes off as nothing more than a petulant brat. I don't see depression towards the end of 2.0...I see a child in the middle of a snit that quietly simmers until he finally blows up in a massive temper tantrum. In other words, you saw only what you wanted to see. Way to...

Just because Asuka got better later (arguable) it doesn't mean she didn't die horribly along with nearly everyone else or that they won't probably die even more horribly very soon. Yui is a pie in the sky, ivory tower sort who is on her way out the door as an immortal goddess fi...

The one criticism of EVA I've never been able to dispute.

...is that the setting is so bleak and hopeless that there's no bloody point to the story. We've heard this before, but I'd like to flesh that statement out and play devil's advocate. To sum up, half of humanity is already dead before the story even begins. The survivors are some of ...

Because Anno was looking for some of the creepiest imagery involving Yui/Rei/Lillith's face, and settled on those faces growing out of the dickhead EVAs. Seriously, it was like their faces were foreskins or something. I realize that's a disgusting comparison, and I do not apologize. But yeah...

That's still only a quarter of the movie. We won't see any visual details until a camrip or something his the internet. With a series like this we need everything we can before we start making judgement calls. I realize the hypocrisy of that statement but I really can't bring myself to c...

[SPOILERS] Discussing movie without the complete picture

Split from the Misato Shinji thread And here we run into the other problem plaguing this whole forum....about how many of us have actually seen the movie? We're running on a few tidbits of information with no details. If I had sense I'd have stayed out of the conversations entirely but I ca...

No. That's just not how accountability works. Everything you mention here is a mitigating factor, but none of it changes the fact that he pulled the trigger. It's like saying Smith & Wesson or an alcoholic parent are responsible if you take a gun and go and shoot someone, and it's h...

The one catch with a question like this is that the movie was nothing without the circumstances leading up to it. Do you just plonk down in the middle of that nightmare with no idea of what happened before, or do you carry all of your own knowledge with you? In the former scenario you'd be gunne...

I never thought I'd be agreeing with NemZ on this, but I do. Let me try to break down my thoughts on this. Shinji's literally alone in the world and on the verge of a mental breakdown throughout the entire movie. His friends are either dead or want nothing to do with him. His only family is ...

But don't forget that if Shinji hadn't done what he did they'd all be dead right now. I wonder if everyone forgot that Zeruel was about to do something much worse than what Shinji did?
