Kaji is the only decent human being. Maya almost let the protagonist be strangled to death because she can't take a frickin' order. "But sir! The dummy plug hasn't been fully tested! If we use it woopsnevermindhe'sdeadsorrylol."

Entirely reasonable concerns she was obliged to bring up as part of tech crew.
ran1: Oh gosh this sentence gave me an internet boner. You're so tsundere.
Mugwump: Goddamn it, Xard! Take me in your arms, you magnificent sex god bastard!
And don't forget to wear the Ran mask.
Eva Yojimbo: You really are the Otaku equivalent of a Catholic and Jew rolled up into one giant dakimakura of guilt.
Gob Hobblin: Sanctimonious, subtly racist, vaguely misogynist, somehow says something while at the same time saying...nothing, really, at all....

Nice, Xard. That's nice.

Everyone in NGE was incompetent, and everyone of any importance looked either cute or hot while they were at it. Yui seemed to be the only one who knew what she was doing AND managed to eke out some success, but she was insane like the rest of them anyway.

Point being, Maya is moe.

Where is Kaoru? Guess it must be cute and incompetent?

Kaworu is Merri's husbando so he couldn't bring himself to mention him in the "incompetent" list ;)

In this case, at least he could have put him into MOE category like Maya :lol:

I forgot all about Kaworu, but he's incompetent as well. Kaworu: intersection of fabulous and incompetent.

Jet Alone Creator Dude: the intersection of sexist, smug, and incompetent

Does he have a name? He's too incompetent to have a name. At least Evas can walk in more than one direction.

Agreed, untested autopilot in charge of a weapon of mass destruction is probably something worth second-guessing. It's not like they had much of an alternative really, but still worth taking a moment to point out that it could just as easily kill the angel as help it kill them. For what it's worth she also does get on the bandwagon with the decision being correct when Shinji has his tantrum.

A more interesting question, to me at least, is to ask why she has such trepidations in the first place. In ep11 she seems downright thrilled that the Magi actually run the city for the puppet government of the city council. Given that outlook I don't understand at all why she'd have such reservations about the dummy system that she's willing to stand up to both Ritsuko and Gendo in separate incidents about it; in fact I'd rather expect she'd be happy to see it do it's thing.

So the question is what is it about the dummy system that throws her off? I'm thinking the old "dummy plug contains a clone (or at least part of one)" idea might have more traction than it's usually given around here. And it can't just be a brainjar sort of situation, either... the magi have biological brains too.

Yeah, I don't get her dummy system objections either. The alternative is to let Shinji die, so what choice is there? Again, Maya. Job. Bad. At. Really. Is. Her.

Shiro Tokita is really bad at his job. Can we at least agree about that? Huh? HUH?

Say something to convince him to actually fight back. Keeping in mind that there's probably less concern from Gendo that Shinji is going to die than concern that Eva-01 will be lost.

I don't think that's a realistic option, though. At that time, what could they say? He seems pretty committed. He's just not going to kill Toji, no matter what the consequences.

He doesn't know Toji is in the thing until it's all over. At the time it was just "another kid like me".
