I know that this question is a bit silly, but this is a thing that i keep in my mind since i watched this anime... He talks to Rei and Shinji but never talks to Asuka! Maybe he hates her who know... Because in 22 episode when Shiji ask him to save her he simply say "I Don't Care"... People tell me what you think about this. 8)

Asuka was expendable to him, just another pawn inhis game. Her life had no meaning to him.

Shinji was the child of his body, and Rei the child of his making. Asuka was just another NERV staff member - and how often does the CEO speak to a shop floor worker?


And then Gendou himself is not exactly the most garrulous of characters.

Ep #22 "I don't care" - at that point, the last thing he is going to do is risk EVA-01, given her pivotal position in his master plan. The pilots are valuable to him only in that they can serve his hidden agenda, as opposed to SEELE's. I don't think that he would have cared to save Shinji, were positions reversed.

Well, there is also lack of love for Shinji from Gendo, we know this, because in the first episode he refers to Shinji as a spare.. now if his own son is just a spare to him than obviously Asuka wil mean less than nothing.. So to that extent, what does Shinji mean to him apart from the fact that he is his son and a Eva pilot? :?

"Asuka was expendable to him, just another pawn in his game. Her life had no meaning to him."

So yea I guess you hit the nail with that statement 8)

Nah, she shot him down because he was too old. So he had to back to making out with the clones from the tank.

I would have thought that Asuka walked into the room as Gendo was getting it off with the clones, she called child(or is that clone)services and when Seele heard what was going on, they sent in the troops and bingo! You have EoE! - "I caused third impact by being a pedophile" - Gendo could have told that to Ritsuko just before he shot her... :lol:

Well, Asuka obviously doesn't mean anything to Gendo...... But i recon because he refers to Shinji as a spare(as he does with Rei) that the same goes for Shinji - he is only a Eva pilot and doesn't mean anything else to Gendo - Do you agree or am I drunk? :?

You wouldn't mind getting it on with clones of yourself? :shock:

It is a bit odd to think that Gendo and Asuka don't have a single exchange to think of. But then again, in terms of the character relationships, there is none. The relationship is the impetus for the various exchanges the characters have. Shinji is Gendo's son, and Rei is a clone of his dead wife. Asuka has no connection to Gendo, and as Misato delegates between Gendo and the pilots, he is never in the position to speak to Asuka. He only commanded one sortie, and that was only when Misato was incompasitated. In that instance, he gave Asuka an order, and I believe that may have been the only time he ever spoke directly to her. Strange, isn't it?

You could also count in the brief interaction in the 5th stage of the 4th volume of Sadamoto's manga. Asuka clearly tries to impress Gendo but he just walks past her and Shinji without saying anything important.

That's actually the only time I've ever seen Gendo actually say something which wasn't an order or something important. It's as if he almost indulged in a bit of chit-chat.

Yeah that's right:

We can see that Gendo is not that cold as other times..

Kind of OOC. The great Gendo-sama is clearly beyond something as frivolous as small talk.
