Of course although I find it disgusting, if Anno is planning on having a repeat of EOE with Final . . . I could see something like that happening. He's out of his mind and it would drive the point of how pathetic, and how far into despair he's fallen. As if 3.0 wasn't enough.

It isn't an Evangelion finale without some cum on screen. Plus, it would blow apart the whole blood on hand/cum on hand bookends that the original series had that's already been set up for Rebuild.
Among the people who use the Internet, many are obtuse. Because they are locked in their rooms, they hang on to that vision which is spreading across the world. But this does not go beyond mere ‘data’. Data without analysis [thinking], which makes you think that you know everything. This complacency is nothing but a trap. Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.

And so we arrive at demagogy. - Hideaki Anno, 1996

I know you've been talking about this seriously, but as much as I've complained about Rebuild, I don't think Anno would put in a scene like that. Not only did he say earlier that he's excising many of the sexual elements, but I don't think a scene of Shinji masturbating to Asuka and Mari would add in any particular meaning other than making fun of Shinji/otaku. Seriously, it's not a statement that would actually help people in Shinji's situation do anything other than hate themselves more. For it being such an edgy scene with such little payoff, I really don't think anything like that'll happen.

Maybe Shinji will castrate himself, that would be more shocking... while still adding little of value.

A poll should be started.

Who should Shinji fap to, in the Otaku cuckold scene that will most likely be in final?

Asuka and ?
Rei and ?
Asuka and Mari.
Rei and Gendo. :cringe:

No matter what you choose, the only sexual thing shown will be Shinji's semen. The rest will be implied.



And something similiar was used in State of Mercy


:lol: That fanfic!

I always thought that author and anno have something common. Clearly anno is a better writer though.

Two things really, as I remember that fic refering to Gendo as the "cool ikari".


He's out of his mind and it would drive the point of how pathetic, and how far into despair he's fallen. As if 3.0 wasn't enough.



And we all know who Shinji is meant to be represent. Q might be just the start, the beginiing of Shinji/otaku waking up to see the harsh reality and the ruined state he/they caused the world/Japan.

If Asuka and Mari are gay, then we've been missing out on some hot, hot sexing for the past fourteen years.

But on a serious note... if they're gay, so what? All it means is that they may have possibly been boning, which while it opens up a new avenue through which we can explore these characters, really shouldn't affect how we see them as people.

@Ispellnogood: We used to have polls. They were banned. I think they were banned because people used them for foolish things.

My feeling is that no real romantic relationships will happen in Final – there won’t be time amid all the terror, pain, death and building-sized bio-mecha ripping each other to bloody shreds while we listen to random bits of Beethoven.

And I’m fine with that.

But if we must pry, I can see Asuka x Mari making a lot more sense than Asuka x Shinji. For one thing, they’ve lived and fought together for fourteen years. Even if there’s no actual relationship, they might fall into bed together occasionally after a hard day at the office.

Shinji? He’s been out of the picture for fourteen years. FOURTEEN YEARS. There are people who were hugely important to me fourteen years ago that I probably wouldn’t recognise if we passed on the street, now. And I haven’t spent any of that time scrabbling to survive amidst the bleached bones of everything I ever loved.

No wonder nobody will give Shinji the time of day when he wakes up. He’s been gone too long.

And back to the romance side of things. Asuka is 27-28 now, mentally if not physically. Getting it on with Shinji should squick her the hell out.

Not that I'm arguing that there is going to be any romance in Final, but your brain doesn't develop if your entire body stays the same. She's had the experiences of someone who's been alive for 28 years, but that only goes so far toward maturation when your hormones and brain stay in perpetual teenage chaos for 14 years straight. None of the pilots are really 28-year-old adults in teenage bodies; they're 28-year-old teenagers stuck in a developmentally stunted state of incomplete growth.

I don't mind them being gay. I do think Shikinami is simply meant to be someone who looks down on Shinji with disgust, so it's very hard to like her at all. Mari seems like someone they just didn't know what to do with, so she's just there. I am in the "Soryu > Shikinami" crowd so I could understand a bit of butthurt, that butthurt might be intentional actually. Asuka and Mari are lacking in the character department, so making them lesbians would seem sort of like a "Gay for the sake of being Gay" thing. While I wouldn't like a new Shinji fapping scene which features Asuka and Mari, I would prefer the fap scene over Asuka simply giving Mari a kiss and an "I love you" that would seem just lazy to me.

I'm an unashamed kittyshipper (yes, that's what I call it), but I doubt we'll see nothing confirming or denying it in the fourth movie. There's just going to be too much other stuff going on, and too little time to waste on a romantic subplot. If we get it at all, it'll be during some ending segment or during the credits.
Life can seem a challenge. Life can seem impossible. It's never easy when so much is on the line.

I can see mari and Asuka in a "friends with benefits" relationship. I don't think either of them are full on lesbos. I think it would be terrible if Asuka still has feelings for Shinji other than a fledging friendship after 14 years and the limited time they were together. However this IS anime, and I'm not sure anno really gives a shit anymore.

Evangelion is the only fanbase where it's possible to have really deep discussions about how thought-provoking it is while also talking about its main character jerking off to two 14-year-old giant robot pilots fucking.

Hey hey, they're 28 now, remember? They just look 14. That means it's... uh... okay?

^ Well, one of them is 28. We still don't know Mari's are at any given point in the series.
