Emosexual....that is a new word to me.


Ewwww at Shinji. He has some serious issues.

I bet he is the kind of kid who is weak at first, but then snaps and gets involved in aschool shotting or something.

While personally, I don't think Kaworu could have been gay being an angel and all, I think you have really come across something. Kaoru certainly touched Shinji's hand the same way as Misato did yert Shinji did not at all turn away. He simply blushed. Also, in EoE, he freaks out when he sees the big huge Rei combined with Lillith, but the minute he heard Kaoru's voice all that fear was gone. But of course, this could just be genuine friendly love.

Or it could be something else.

I don't know if people have overlooked the part or it is just common knowledge but Shinji does have a thing for Rei as shown in episode 5.

The more you post this sort of thing, the more it sounds like you're aiming to make them gay, Reich.

I don't see it.

Shinji seems to find Rei fascinating, but he doesn't appear to be attracted to her the way he is to Asuka.

Well, to be fair, we never see him encounter Rei when she's asleep or sedated. For any more than implied S/R, you have to go to the manga.

...which seems to want to throw S/A out the window and have S/R. Why exactly Sadamoto chose that route is beyond me, but he better have harpies.

Not sure how you're reaching that conclusion, considering in my very first post I denounce the "gay" hypothesis and emphasize Kaworu's status as an inherently maternal figure. Image

You might be emphasizing Kaworu's role, but I didn't honestly see anything in that thread that said "Shinji is not gay. Period". I'll have to reread the thread sometime, but for now, that's my general impression - oh, and that by making Kaworu seem maternal, you also make him seem a bit homosexual as well (but naturally, that's just Kaworu).

I think Shinji is soft. He's a pu55y maybe (except when things come to a head he rips monsters apart with his hands). He's a coward at times. He cooks. He cleans. He tells people that he wants to be loved (as opposed to the manly thing of only sharing that with yourself). Shinji is very soft. Very effeminate. Is he gay though... I don't think so.

Dude obviously has a thing for women. Kaji was portrayed as being this super attractive James Dean-ish bad boy, but Shinji never really messed with him at all. Really, he was only nice to Karawou cuz he didn't reject him or bash him ever.

Once again, the best line ever is relevant:

Ryoji Kaji: So, can I buy you a drink? Cup o' tea?
Shinji Ikari: Kaji, I'm a boy.

^ I think you're drawing conclusions from what little of that thread I actually got around to producing that were not at all intended. Image

Kaworu having an inherently maternal nature seems as straightforward a matter as Rei having one -- unless you want to attempt to dissociate the kid from who he really represents. Image Also, what on Earth kind of associative relationship does maternity have to homosexuality? ... None at all.

Maternity = woman's role. Kaworu = boy. Maternal boy = gay. Image
I don't think that's true, certainly, but I can at least follow the process to that comclusion, in a sense.
Anyway, I think Rei's maternal connection to Shinji is a bit more... specific than Kaworu's could be, don't you think?

I think I was planning on using the word "surrogate" in that thread eventually. Image

That thread isn't really a priority or anything, though. I'll probably just poke at it here and there, and try to remain blissfully indifferent to anyone who thinks some kind of "punchline" is involved. Either that, or get out the chainsaw.

Or, for Treize X, my Needle Gun. Image

Yes. Needle guns make Treize happy. Very happy. They make Lord Zedd happy too.

True, but how does Shinji view Kaoru?
