WTF is with Kaworu and Asuka (shipping)?

I see a lot of fan art and even on avatars around here with Kaworu and Asuka gettin' all intimate. Simple question, where in the hell did this come from? When did Kaworu and Asuka even partly coincide with each other, other than the time he hijacked her mama?

I mean, if anything I could understand ReixKaworu fan fics popping up all over the place since AsukaxShinji are like the known duo and Rei's all by herself and they're both angelic and whatnot, but- Asuka and Kaworu?

When did all this get started? They seriously do not even remotely look good together. Sorry Mr. Tines xD

Well their are two answers to this question.

One fandom has paired at some point every character with every other so Asuka x kaworu was going to hit at some point.

Two It annoys me personally and Mr. TInes and the Eva Monkey seek to annoy me as I hate kaworu with a passion the jews normally reserve for German house painters. Having even his vestige near Asuka makes me want to hurl and they may even be using that in an attempt to end my life .

That or they just think its cool one or the other.

Kaworu - LEARNED



Well... Even if all characters get paired, that doesn't explain how prominent and often the pairing between those two is.

And like the other guy said... It's stupid. Although I do enjoy Kaworu, I do not enjoy him with Asuka.

Me either. Also pilots hooking up is popular and kaworu is the only pilot Asuka never speaks to in TOS. This leaves anything that might happen free of any cannon interactions between the two, making fanfiction easier to write without continuity freaks jumping all over you like Misato on kajis bone.

It's called the shipping fandom. When you enter the shipping fandom you can expect sensible, different, and sometimes bizzare pairings.

I like the pairing. Almost complete opposites becoming a couple.

You've obviously never seen Death, or read Sadamoto's manga, or Girlfriend of Steel 2 manga, or Ikari Shinji Raising Project manga, or Gakuen Datenroku, or played Evangelion 2, or Girlfriend of Steel 2, or Shinji Ikari Raising Project. Not to mention Rebuild, or the original plot outline for the TV series.

Just because Asuka's doped up by the time Kaworu shows up in the TV anime, doesn't mean the coupling is completely invalid. Also, welcome to the internet and the power of fantasy.

They have a big ol' hotness force field together. It's sexy. Or... as sexy as fictional underage asian cartoons can be.

For those not used to contact with a DatDude their is a manual in the Evageeks survival kit. For that have been irresponsibles and lost their kit just remember the four key rules.

1.) Do not give a DatDude alcohol, or drugs.

2.) Do not go back and re edit your posts to change your argument completely after it has responded. This will cause meat eating behavior, and DatDude's are omnivores that will take their soylent green with or without fires.

3.) The natural enemy of the DatDudes in the wild are circus midgets, ground squirrels, platypuses, Kaworu, and if any cubes are directly threatened pedophiles. Avoid getting between a DatDude and any of these especially in rutting season ( around st patty's day).

4.) Lastly when they are not not pondering the meaning of life through the medium of writing, vegetating while watching cartoons, viewing pornography, engaging in computer repair, or hitting on your mother, the can be somewhat sarcastic. Relax they don't bite . . most of the time.

I like it better than A/S shipping, so I say run with it.

There's something else that goes into this.

In the Digimon fandom, there were basically eight kids: five boys and three girls. Two of them were younger than the rest, so they were paired. That leaves four boys and two girls. What would frequently happen is that the leader and the main girl would be paired and the second most prominent male would get the other girl as a consolation prize. (Sometimes the other two boys would win out, but generally only when the first pairing was removed).

So, to use the same sort of psychology, people who don't like A/S and prefer Asuka as a character have to give her a coupling. She clashes with Toji too much, Kensuke is unpopular, and everyone else is female or not her age. So Kaworu is the remaining male and thus she gets him. Sometimes this coincides with S/R, sometimes it doesn't (in much the same way that being an S/A fan doesn't mean you're a K/R fan).
