Wait. What? You're now on Asuka fan-boy bandwagon? I thought you were better known as Mr. R/S Shipper! :? 'Splain, please!

Perhaps the newer members aren't adequately aware of my real reputation.



which is not quite the same thing as you suggest.

I am, and ever since seeing episode 16 have always been, an Asuka fan, to the extent that my major piece of writing this century has been an Asuka-centred fic.




Meanwhile, back on topic...

I would be surprised if we see her -- from what we already know, it looks like Operation Yashima will be the climax of the film, which leaves no real window for her arrival.

The only opportunity would be either at the very end, this new red-head storms into sight, and then "To Be Continued" or in a preview section "Meanwhile, sailing towards Japan ... what will happen when she arrives?", which would be seconds at most.

Tines is probably just overprotective. That's why he's anti - A/S. Shinji isn't good enough for his little girl :wink:

So all that stuff about how Asuka and Shinji's relationship not having the possibility to be any more than platonic was just a front? or are you being sarcastic as well??!!

God, i'm so confused. (Promptly commits suicide)

@ Indigo Arcangel

Just FYI, that [/sarcasm] jab was targeted at Tines, not you. That post did make it sound like I was smarting off at you and I really was not. Sorry...

Me, too, now. Probably best to continue this diversion in one of the more directly a S/A related thread like

http://evageeks.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=267

(can't find any other ones around, but I'm sure there are ones I've had my rant in -- just that searching for the Children by name is not enough of a filter :lol: )

Don't worry, you don't need to be. I didn't think you were "smarting off" at me anyway. Keep apologising like this and you'll sound like me, LOL!...
...or, err, Shinji of course, but that's besides the point.

However, i don't understand how the sarcasm could have been directed at Tines. I mean, i don't know how that would have made conversational sense. Am i missing something here?

Besides common sense of course... :oops:

The implication is that my motives were less pure than you were suggesting -- that I might be ephebo for Asuka and wanting to make her "mai waifu", as it might be put in certain scurrilous parts of the anime-related internet.




Meanwhile -- Back on topic, bitches.

"ephebo"??? "mai waifu"????????? ARGHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

Agreed. I was getting one hell of a headache.

I for one think it's a good thing that Asuka doesn't come in till' the second movie.
That way, the first can concentrate on R/S, and the second movie on A/S

Sue me, 15 years of putting up with a narcissistic relative has made me rather intolerant of such people.

My thoughts exactly! ^_^; It'd rule if those two were to meet up so Wacky Hijinks could ensue! Wacky Hijinks, I say!

I still say we'll see a brief shot of Asuka after the ED credits as a hint of showing up in Rebuild:02.

Oh, and IIRC, Asuka only lived with Misato and later "Kaji-san" after Mama went nuts and killed herself.... (And BOTH parts of her ended up in Nigoki...)

@ Tines: O RLY? As I'm sure know by now, I'm an Asuka fan and I think Shinji's good enough for her! After all, SHE herself thinks so! ;)

Speaking of the Next Time previews, I hope we get that along with Misato's promises of "Saabisu, saabisu"! Seeing Asuka either after the ED Credits or a Preview or both would just rule.
....Speaking of Asuka's arrival, I guess there'd be no "in-between episode 6 and 8 Jet-Alone drama to develop Shinji & Misato's relationship"? Not that I care about her showing up again (Yui-sama could crush her!), but some Shinji & Misato development would be nice.

Jet Alone sucks. Period. They'll probably create some new scenario for Shinji - Misato character developement. At least, the trailer seems to hint at that.

Actually, I'd like to see Jet Alone try to fight one of the opening three angels. It could try fighting Sachi, and get rammed in the face or sent airbone by an X-blast. It could be sliced limb-to-limb by Shamshel's energized tentacles. Or it could be shot right through by Ramiel's beam of death. (In whatever case, the public realizes that the Boso EVA-01 can do what a nuclear robot can't)

Of course, the whole lot of them realize they are lucky that the reactor from the wrecked robot isn't destroyed and that there is no danger from radiation, but with the way the robot got taken down, and how well the Evas peform, the Evas are preferable any day.

That's a good idea, actually :)

It could be used in the opening barrages against Sachy.

They'd better redesign it, though. I always thought that Jet Alone looked really rediculous.

Amen to that.
