Ugh, this. I've spent several hours trying to clean up the main and character pages on Rebuild's TV Tropes pages to remove the bile against Misato and Asuka for bullying poor Shinji-kun. Look at this shit:
Misato's TV Tropes Entry wrote:* UngratefulBitch: If she wasn't so hypocritical and bitter to the point of treating Shinji like garbage and self-righteously using him as a scapegoat, she would realize that him causing Third Impact actually ''saved'' mankind. Because had Shinji not caused Third Impact, the 10th Angel would have wiped out ''all'' mankind, not just the majority. Thus Misato, and everyone remaining have been living off 14 years of borrowed time that Shinji had unwittingly given them and yet Misato and everyone else is so caught up in their self-righteous and personal bitterness towards Shinji that they treat him like an inhuman monster
Misato's TV Tropes Entry wrote:* NeverMyFault: She vocally blames Shinji for causing TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, not acknowledging that she urged him on at all. It's made more twisted because she ''does'' know deep down that she's partially to blame, and treats Shinji badly partially because his presence reminds her of that.
Misato's TV Tropes Entry wrote:Hypocrite: In 3.0, she treats Shinji with disdain for his accidental role in destroying the planet in the pervious film when he tried to save Rei, in spite of having encouraged him to do exactly that.
Misato's TV Tropes Entry wrote:Too Dumb to Live: As angry as she is at Shinji and at herself, her, Asuka, and her crew's treatment of him could end up being their STUPIDEST mistake of all. "3.0" is almost entirely a small demonstration. Because as all fans know, when it comes to Evangelion there's two little unspoken rules: 1, Shinji gets screwed over, and 2, Shinji eventually (though usually unintentionally) screws over everyone who screwed him over. If Misato and everyone continue to treat Shinji the way they have in the final movie as they did 3.0 then its all too possible that he will end up in the SAME emotional and mental state he was in during End of Evangelion, which we all know what that brought about and this time around it could be much worse.
Asuka's TV Tropes Entry wrote:Too Dumb to Live: Her bullheadedness and attack on Shinji in Terminal Dogma without explaining herself to him is what partially drove him to remove the spears and cause the Near-Fourth Impact.
Even the Wunder can't spin like that. What annoys me most about this is that Misato is continually compared to Gendo in appearance and methodology. She superficially resembles him with her new shiny sunglasses, but her new characterization owes almost entirely to Captain Nemo, a totally different animal all together. Gendo is more like Gargoyle.
Here's another dumb conclusion I see all the time:
ReiQ was designed as a deliberate slap in the face to Rei's fans, being Anno's way of telling them "your waifu sucks and you suck for liking her." Because Anno hates Rei, hates Rei's fans, and is furious that people don't see her as creepy and unsettling as he originally intended.
Which is of course why Moe Rei shows up on all of the officially licensed merchandise.
Edit: Holy crap, I splel gud this morning
