They all have rather sucky lives where every awesome factor gets "balanced" my multiple horrible ones, not anything I'd wish on anybody.

I guess I'd take Shinji's spot, first, to spare him of it, and then because that's one of the positions where you can influence the rest of the setting for the better. Also, freest possible acess to teh Rei.

Or Kaworu, because cool AT-Field powers and getting touchi-feely with teh Shin-can.
I'm probably too squeamish for heroic sacrifices, tho, which kimda leads back to the point of "all their lives are sucky."

I think that Q has pretty much proven otherwise e.e


Probably the best character to be would be Fuyutsuki. He is pretty cool and unlike most characters, his life and problems are not all that horrible.

While Asuka reminds me too much of my teenage self, I have to say. taking Kozo's role would seem most fitting.

I guess I could be young Gendo. His life seemed pretty interesting until he lost Yui. Then, his life was still interesting, but it was filled with an orgy of terror and general assholery.

He banged Ritsuko though. That's a pretty serious upside.

I call Gendo's Ritsuko-fucking phase "sticking your dick in crazy". Besides, he had reasons for doing it, like he has reasons for doing everything. I wouldn't want to deal with all of those conflicting goals and all of the manipulation involved in his little tryst.

She's the crazy one? Please. A Ritsuko in the bed beats a Yui in the Eva. Trade up for the newer model and all that.

I don't have a younger sister in my real life but based on the love Toji feels for Sakura, i would wanna be him. It also helps that the cute class rep Hikari has a crush on him which i consider the most underdeveloped romance ever.

I'd totally go with Mari. Eva pilot? Check. Relatively stable? Check. Able to get away with eating and drinking in the entry plug? Double check. Yep, Mari is definitely my option.

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.

I would be Kaji, the only thing I would change is wearing a vest of graphene and carrying a gun.

If I am a Eva Character , then I would be Shinji, though I am more sane than him and having less family Issues. I grew up only with my mom and my two sisters. My dad died before my birth.

Like Shinji, my path and place in life is uncertain. I'm not sure what I want to do with my life but it can become different, depending on the circumstances I'm in. I'cant take care on my own yet and I am dependent from others. I appreciate all the good moments in life and I struggle through any hardships until they are over. I hate it to be lonely, but if I want some company, no one has time for me or they are selfish douchebags and the effort I make is wasted. Mostly I'm cautious but sometimes I handle things with my feelings instead with my mind and it doesn't go so well.

When I think myself as Shinji and have to struggle through the whole plot of Eva, there are things that I would do different than him.

I wouldn't get my self get fooled by others. I would be more critical and tougher, make demands no one shouldn't refuse and I wouldn't just run away just because something horrible happens, instead I do my best out of this and I 'll always think about who and what's importaint to me.

When there is one thing I always wanted to do in Shinjis place, I would maintain my relationship with Asuka. I would make her realise, that I'm more than what she thinks of me and that her skills and pride alone won't fill the void and loneliness she hides and I'll be the one who fills her void and eases her pain. I might not be the one she want's, but the one she needs and with time we 'll fall in love and together we'll withstand the horrors.
I carry out things right to the end. No. Matter. What.

This is amazing.

Anyway, what does this question even mean? Am I to find myself in the situation (and even body?) of a character, but free to follow my own, current will? Or is conciousness transfered, and nothing else, so that I must share their exact fate?

Isn't it obvious? You can do everything. You can be a shining example for Shinji, Misato and Asuka. I would (if i have memory of my past self) try to convince Shinji to be like Kaji, would solve Misatos problem (with her father) and hang out with her like in Ha! at the bar. And would say to Asuka that she should drop the false pride. And in NTE i could actually alter the course of action. Growing some flowers and so on is pretty cool and unusual. I would def. try to fix Asuka or support Shinji because (in NGE) he respects me atleast and tolerates my behaviour. And being killed is not so bad.

If the limitation of one day wouldn't exist i would like to be either Gendo, Kaji or one of the childreans. Let the the Zufall decide what i'm. I like all characters - but it matters what you can do to prevent SEELE from screwing around. Shinji is a obvious choice like Asuka. Gendo can alter everything and Kaji too.

Just think about not shaving every day. Isn't this ideal (especially if you are Gendo). :hahaha:
"Shinji repeatedly rises to the occasion, overcomes his own doubts and fears and puts others ahead of himself to the point of self harm. The situation overwhelms him. Victory does not define a hero. Intent does. He breaks at the end, but after inhuman, overwhelming, borderline comedic suffering." - Chuckman talking about Shinji as a hero
Final Fantasy 7 gets a remake. I hope it doesn't goes the same way NTE did.
Plus I kinda want to be done with this franchise for a while and concentrate on other things in life. - Guy Nacks

Hmm... I think independent of what I would like if I would be one of the NGE characters I would be Lorenz Kiel.

If I got more than one crack at it, the first time I'd go for Fuyutsuki or one of the eleven SEELE members who aren't Keel and try to see how far I could go with zany hijinks before I got a bullet in the back of my head. You know, spend half of NERV's discretionary budget on a night of drunken carousing and sleep it off under Gendo's desk and try to pass it off as part of the scenario that Yui didn't mention (besides disappearing into the eva forever lmao) or something. Maybe try and teach Rei a different piece of slang (but with the wrong meaning attached to it) every couple of weeks and see how long it takes for anyone to notice.

That's an easy one. Kaji. Cool person, does the job every kid is dreaming of (agent), has the looks, famous with women, drives a Lotus (although this is only in manga). He is a man's prototype.

Man, the earlier parts of this thread are a blast from the past. And I never actually picked someone, huh?

Asuka.
Good looks, and a college graduate at 14? Absolutely.
Also Bilingual.
Not having real parents is pretty awful though, at least Shinji has memories of Yui and a less distant Gendo. Still, Asuka has been the character that I think most resembles me, especially when I was a teenager.
I would definitely fawn over Kaji(I think I could get him, too), but being with Shinji would be.... tolerable.

My second choice would be Yui, but we aren't allowed to be Evas. Still, Yui has the same benefits of Asuka, being also good looking and extremely intelligent. Yui is also the worlds best mom, and she probably had a family. Gendo as a romantic partner is strange because I've always sided with Shinji over Gendo, but Ill take a wild guess that he was much warmer to Yui than Shinji.
The most painful thing for Yui, I'd imagine, is seeing your child be as distraught as Shinji. The only other sad part of her story is that she had to be seperated from Shinji and Gendo, with her and Gendo's connections she probably made it through second impact fine, she really does have an ideal life compared to the other Eva characters.
