Gendo'sPapa#875069 wrote:Shinji will undoubtably have intimate scenes with Rei & Asuka, undoubtably he'll have a big cathartic scene with Misato that 3.0 has set up [...], but the story is most likely going to end with Shinji accepting Shinji.

That seems familiar :wink:

Fuyutsuki tells Shinji in Q that Rei is a replica of Yui from the "data" that was all remaining of her; so actually it's made clearer (to him, if not to us) than in the series.

Re: Dealing with being thirty

I am 71, and feel not a lot different from you. (Maybe a little, because there comes a time when a degree of physical deterioration cannot be avoided, even if it is less and better managed than in the past.)

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

I have the manga in Japanese, because my French is no better. But it's out of print now. And the anime is not hard to find from illegal sources - you just need to search for "Puchi Eva" or "Evangelion@School" instead of "Petit Eva". I can't find if it was ever released ...

Re: Am I alone in having a love hate relationship with Elfen Lied?

And although I cheer for Elfen Lied, I would certainly say that Texhnolyze is a better show. However, you need to steel yourself for the most quietly depressing ending possible.

Re: Does Sadamoto ship Shinji and Asuka?

There's no time loop in the manga - we see MPEs as ancient unexplained artefacts.

I know that reincarnation doesn't really come with an identical body - but that was a way of representing whose karma the reincarnated person was carrying.

Re: FanFiction Requests/Recommendations/Discussion etc.

He has elements of both of those characteristics; but by contrast, we are also shown his bravery and determination. Most people are too complicated to be summarised in so few words - and it is one of the good features of this show that the characters are not simplified but show the complexity of rea...

Re: FanFiction Requests/Recommendations/Discussion etc.

So Shinji, given the right motivation, is capable of shooting his father and killing him. I think that in most people there is a clear and strong line between the capability of even extreme violence and deliberate targetted killing. I would say that although we have seen Shinji provoked to the poin...

Re: Rewatching the Rebuilds, and my thoughts

A contemporary artwork is made to be contemplated by the audience and if author is serious about that, s/he grants the audience full freedom of coming up with various interpretations of it, Death of the author doesn't mean the author has to agree to die (even though Anno does expect people to think...

Re: Does Sadamoto ship Shinji and Asuka?

Funnily ended? What do you mean by that? Like how it ended in a weird sort of way? It ended with some kind of reset, which disappointed those who want to see Shinji and co openly learn from their mistakes and experience. But it fits with a view of reincarnation, I guess, in which your previous acti...

Re: Does Shinji deserve all the hate?

We don't know you beyond what you write here - and I know well that we only expose a little of ourselves on forums such as this. So there's no justification for anyone to agree with you, if that's what you're looking for.

Remarks like that are thoughtless, provocative, and really not clever. You're not the first to say it, so it's not even original.

Re: Rewatching the Rebuilds, and my thoughts

Anno has created a scenario in which it is impossible to assign blame to any one person — and impossible not to empathize with each of them — but it's also impossible to dismiss their faults. Parts of this forum disprove that - though that's not because of the film, but rather from blind misreading...

Re: C.T.1290 versus Asuka. Examining the good and bad.

Or at least, consequences like or approaching those ones. And the answer is, no he didn't, and we are even shown that through the fact that Misato, for instance, didn't either until it was too late.
