I would be interested in knowing your own possible favourite pairings in the show. It doesn't matter if it is canon (such as Kaji and Katsuragi) or completely hypothetical (Go for Suzuhara and Soryu,as an example)

My personal favourite is the potential Suzuhara-Hikari pairing.

If I had to choose a totally impossible pair I's say Mari x Kaworu, I think they could be a comical couple funny enough for a slice of life spin off. They also looks cute together :nod:

Obviously my real favorite pair is Asuka x Shinji. I find their "love and hate" interaction really interesting in every universe. They always get really close, much more than any other character has been before and then inevitably they harshly drift apart. However, no matter how distant they may end up they always get closer again. It reminds me of a sick relationship I had sometime ago.

I'm going to hold off linking all the previous related threads, and say Asuka/Kaworu as a brief and tragic whirlwind.

This is the first time i've heard of such possibility. Although they have some common points..

Any of the kids paired with Kaworu would fuck them up real bad and end in tragedy. Even Rei 'cuz she'd be killing her other half and sorta/kinda sibling. Yeah, now I can totally understand why some people are put off by the KawoShin or KawoAnybody pairing (even though kinda/sorta like it) and Kaworu.

My favorite pairing is Unit-01 x Zeruel. Shougouki-san has never gotten that intimate with an angel till episode 19.

I too, throw in my vote for Unit 01/Shogoki-san x Zeruel-kun. Truly a blossoming relationship that harvested much potential, ending in tragic, Shakespearean finale.

I believe the topic is Best Pair, not Best Girl.....That is unless you think Gendo and Ritz make the best pair.

Bite your tongue, fool.

As to the OP, I love the idea of Mari/Kaworu. Mari would be completely immune to Kaworu's "I am an Angel here to CRUSH YOUR SOUL" bullshit, and seeing him taken completely off-balance like that would be delightful.

Yeah but whose not to say that in some universes Kaworu might turn against and betray Seele for someone he cares about or like Rei be could even be born human and have no link to Seele at all. In my view there's hope for every pairing out there because I imagine that the multiverse could be vast and wide and not all of them having Seele in control or be completely over thrown, the series, manga and rebuild are just one version of events playing out so any things possible.

It's pretty obvious what my stance is. XD

However, I'm willing to explore other pairing options, like "Wreckage" showed. :)

Well that certainly was unexpected. You could say Akagi learned something from Katsuragi...

He was either referring to a pair of Ritsukos, or Rituko's pair.

I'm more interested in Ritsuko's pear, but I sorta wince at the idea of Ritsuko's pare.

:lol: Yeah, I finally now understood what Chuck meant. Misato still has the better pair though. That. Is. A. Fact.

I'd probably go with ShinjiXAsuka, for some obvious reason.
It's just too bad that thier relationship had been practically wrecked by thier problems and insecurities. Because of what happened to them in the show, the relationship between these two seems hopeless (even more so in Rebuild).
But I guess one could hope though.

I, for one, am firmly onboard the AsuMari express. I'm fairly accepting of most of the other ships (and will, in fact, support them), but this one always comes out on top for me. It just... really works. The dynamic, the teamwork, the bits of back-and-forth banter canon's given... And now, because I know I'd otherwise ramble on and on about it, I'll cut myself off here.
My ongoing fanfics: NGE: (Not) the End, Evangelion: Regenesis

Winking Mari makes my heart go doki doki
We're all Asuka-fanboys? I take great exception to that. It's Mari I want to plow nine ways from Sunday, if you don't mind.

What? She's 28 now.

... eh?

They only interacted in 3.0, and their banter screamed to me that they were something like two cops; a good and a bad one forced to work with each other although they eventually had to get used to it and ended up just working well together in the workforce.

Mari picks on Asuka, almost reminiscent of an older sibling i.e. telling her that she just wanted to see "puppy-boy" again, bailing on her in the opening scene, etc.

Asuka calls her names, although they aren't something so much of a pet-name like "Stupid Shinji" but rather something like "Four-Eyed Crony" (in the dub, at least). I feel as if the distinction is important, as well as how she acts as Mari's superior.

I'm not saying that they don't work well together, it's just that I can't imagine them in a proper romantic context, but rather something like roommates.
