How would you best describe Shinji Ikari?

This is a forum for casual discussion of Evangelion. Topics like "Asuka is hot!" or "Which Eva kicks the most ass?" belong here.

Lukewarm.

Yeah, it's from that thread. So sue me.
Ritsuko: It can't be...an Angel devoured an Eva? That's impossible!
Maya: That's strange. The target's identification signal is turning into Zerogouki's!

I hate myself. But maybe I can learn to love myself. Maybe it's okay for me to be here! That's right! I'm me, nothing more, nothing less! I'm me. I want to be me! I want to be here! And it's okay for me to be here! -- Shinji Ikari, Neon Genesis Evangelion
Yes, I know. You thought it would be something about Asuka. You're such idiots.

Humans can easily explain the cycle of life because they witnessed it, and they can tell it's story,
But no one can explain why a human need to die because the people who witnessed it can't never tell the tale.

Either way I don't know if any of the kids can really be summarized in short...none of them conform neatly to an archetype... but if I had to pick a word it would be Kaworu's use of "delicate"


i second that. Shinji is sensitive hes always worried about other ppl's feelings and everything that he can't live up to his own expectations. but in EoE helping Asuka was in my own opinion becuz of the bakelie sealing everything until eva 1 moved to have him board it while breaking the bakelite while Shinji murmurs mother? is that why some ppl calls him a quitter ?

Normal teenager affected by traumatic events but somehow manages to remain kind to others and loyal to his principles (how he'd rather die than kill EVA-03/Bardiel/Toji)

This.

I want to see how you look when you have the burden of the entire human race on your shoulders, fighting beings that are intimidating and so large, you need to pilot a "robot" that you don't understand, with the only people who can comfort you are your colleagues (Considering how all the students could be made pilots, might as well consider them as such), who, for all you know, might be just as insane as the people who you work for. You would be in tatters. I know I would.

Forgive my ignorance but I believe that's what I was saying.

Although he's affected by traumatic events (including the relationship with his father, which I think you didn't mention) he still manages to remain kind to others and that's what I admire about him...

Erratic and socially disabled. Further enhanced by burden of saving humanity and Asuka's hotness.
