Re: Evangelion Pic Thread 10: The Society for the Appreciation Of The Premium Girl (and her friends)

^ Maybe not as cliched, but there were definitely moments of concern from her and her need for his attention, like she tried to hide herself when he returned from Leliel. :) But I'm not here to debate, I'm here to show of pics! http://i.imgur.com/wqeABuG.png http://i.imgur.com/T2Ol6j5.jpg http://i.i...

Apparently you've missed Asuka's attempts to garner some ATTENTION from Shinji in the series. Does "thermal expansion" ring a bell? XD

I figured that. I was pointing out the irony of that statement, considering the direction Shinji took to "save" the world both times, by getting in an Eva.

Plus, isn't that very close to the "definition" of INSANITY? Repeating the same thing, over and over, expecting different results?

^ I would be a idiot to expect a better ending in 3.0+1.0, than in NGE and EoE. It should end the way it deserves. I don't care how. I would agree with you on just getting it over with, unless it doesn't end with Shinji's death or the burning bridges of all his relationships. :P Honestly, if that h...

Re: "Anno intended Rei to be creepy"

Anno apparently glossed over (or did he), the idea that human beings can sympathize with all kinds of people, even the most "alien" and socially inept of people. Some people are drawn to that to want to understand why people are like that. :) It's probably one of our best traits as a speci...

If I want to be honest with myself, I'm actually kind of hesitant of Final, considering the emotional turmoil we've experienced both from 3.0, and the turmoil outside the movies, especially here on Evageeks. I kind was slightly happy that we didn't receive any news about Final, to avoid said turmoil...

Re: Is it impossible for Shinji and Asuka to love one another?

Personally, I think Shinji and Asuka may need some time apart to explore other avenues, and like you said Pwhodges, to put their trauma's behind them.

Then, maybe, just maybe, they can see something in each other that's irreplaceable to other people. :)

Re: Is it impossible for Shinji and Asuka to love one another?

^ Well, like Felipe, both the Anno and the VAs have multiple viewpoints when it comes to their own character. Miyamura may say that Asuka doesn't like Shinji, while Anno hints otherwise. It kind of adds to the multi-dimension of a character, like a real person having doubts or contradictions in thei...

Re: Why are Rei and Asuka often portrayed together?

Simple rule of male fanservice dude:

1+1=2: More is better. XD

And Shinji does get his share of advertising, such as modeling for the newest fashion which he does pull off, but apparently the "male gaze" sells more. Care to guess why? XD

Re: Is it impossible for Shinji and Asuka to love one another?

This is rather surprising. Asuka's voice actress, the person who seems to know Asuka real well for having her step into her shoes, saying that she doesn't like Shinji. And yet, she is rumored to have had a Doujinshi about Shinji and Asuka(which may or may not have Asuka be a little out of character...

I'm with Gob on his explanation, 3.33 did well to create the sense of isolation, confusion, and feeling of being trapped experienced by Shinji, which is brilliant as a story-telling perspective to feel that sense. However, because of the events leading up to Shinji's fall and the futility of his act...

Then again, Miyamura has also been rumored to carry a copy of the RE-TAKE doujinshi with her, which is a heavily based story on Asuka and Shi...

I don't think this is exactly right, but I've always assumed it means "Love Asuka Shinji". Basically, it's an indicator for the Asuka X Shinji ship.

The tragedy of Evangelion is not the fa...
