He's just trying to explain something, no need to be like that... honestly I'm shocked to hear you like this Brainman. :/

The opposite seems true: you point it towards the thing you want dead and let 'er rip. If the system has the ability to make judgments about blue fungal staplely crap, it's INCREDIBLY sophisticated.

Yes. Yes, I do.

And I've already posted in this thread to argue it: [url]http://forum.evageeks.org/post/522570/Why-crush-Bardiels-entry-plug/?highlight=#522570[/url]

I care quite a bit. Reading what you guys say is the only thing I can do to past the time until 3.0 (That and play Katawa Shoujo but that's Off-Top).
Please just call me Ian, "TheFrisky" is more of a title.

inre2op:

I've sort of always been under the impression that the warped, psychologically disturbing method was the point, in and of itself, and wasn't done entirely for the purpose of battle strategy. It's another critical needle in Shinji's brain.

What was it Fuyutski said, in 1.0? '...the stories of their lives we wrote before they were born. It's almost cruel.' Something like that.

But why would Gendo do this, when his goal is to claim Instrumentality for himself?

My only guess is that he is coming under increasing scrutiny, by this point, and must make at least the outward appearance of accomplishing SEELE's goal.

Some ask the dummy plug, why crush the pilot? I look at the dummy plug and ask, Why not?
"Let me make sure I'm understanding you correctly. You've read through this entire story so far. To recap, the story has featured Rei wondering if she has become a giant insect and considering wearing a Carmen Miranda hat, Kaji completely blowing off important duties, Shinji and Asuka blowing up a building downtown, Misato driving drunk and nearly killing Rei in a hit-and-run, Fuyutski fearing imminent death from a man dressed as a giant slice of pepperoni, Rei talking to a bagel, and Shinji and Asuka digging up an entire cemetery. And now it's character derailment. Okay."-Esselfortium
