It seems this topic came up again in another thread to keep things all in one place im cutting and pasting things over to here.

We all know Misato is a sex-fiend, and that she 'classically shows affection sexually.' But what if she really did live Shinji. I mean love Shinji. I think that might help explain some things.
Anyway, its something im workign on.
anyone care to comment?
Yes it would explain a lot. but its the "type" of love that every one seems to keep arguing about.

i feel that she expressed her emotions sexually, but that Kaji was the object of her affections.
and you spelled "love" wrong
Again I agree with you, if Misato was only or even mostly intresting in Shinji for sex I think it would have been easy for her to bang him and forget about him, but she tryed to help the poor kid more then once.
If this wasn't the case why did she try to get Shinji to make friends when beening the only influence on the poor kid would have made him easier to manipulate/seduce?
It is a fact that Misato did tryed to give a damn. Yes their are a lot of times when she's not their for ether of the children but it goes back to the problem of beening able to conncet with others thats so much at the core of eva's story.
I still say Misato cared for Shinji like a son or kid brother because of how alike they were and the things she went through at his age that made her the way she is. Granted that she didn't know how to express her feelings and when she tryed ( coming on to Shinji the adult kiss in EoE ) she failed and probly made things worse by confusing poor Shinji.
There was an EVA Nerd here, but now he's gone.
