Which is why he is spitten out of the mouths of everyone who comes into contact with him. He is "good for nothing."

Actually makes a lot of sense. Lukewarm water isn't that useful. Cold water is good for drinking and hot water is good for bathing. Lukewarm on the other hand is very mehish.

Lukewarm water just feels sort of wrong. Like it wants to be cold or hot. It's indecisive, or lacks needed input from something around it to make it cold or hot. Shinji acts as the great equalizer of humanity in EoE, being the one to make the call for everyone to get into the pool. A pool that balances out to one, awkward, lukewarm temperature.

Well, long before now I've used the scriptural reference about spitting out lukewarm water in association with Shinji's alleged confession:

Shinji:
I want to help you in some way... and to be with you forever.


so it's good to see I'm (not) alone here :D

I don't see how it's any diffrent than the other pics you're using in your assessment. Or why it's irelevant to what we're looking at here.

Adjust the assesed traits to something that isn't in keeping with generic male characters and you have the most moeblob character in EVA. If you can't move past typical guy roles, then he's going to seem worthless.

Well, I made the thread so I get dibs on arbitrary rules. Rule 1: this is not the Shinko/Shinyui/crossdressing thread, so keep that where it belongs.

It helps instead to use a generic stock pic of him with abysmally tepid attempts at humor or commentary, such as


"Well, I'm here with my backpack."

"When I'm leaving after I quit the first time, I'll have a duffel bag too. I guess I bought some stuff over the couple weeks. Pretty neat, huh?"

That’s perfectly fine with me, he didn’t need dress magic to be moe or anything of the sort; it’s an innate part of his character.

But I thought we were talking about his character and use to others ("good for nothing.") here along with his insincere confession to Asuka.
Maybe everyone is just looking at the wrong things, lukewarm watter can be very useful.

At the risk of sounding gay, can I say that Shinji does look cute (moe) in Rebuild.
NGE was a damned good anime
EoE was an anime masterpiece
And Rebuild is nothing short of epic

Not in Rebuild surely, he's too irritatingly manlyfied. EoE Shinji is however moé as fuck
