wistful dreams of genocide
You need to rewatch these damn movies from beginning to finish, and the read the Q scipt from beginning to finish. And you need to take your goggles off.
It doesn't GET any more warped.
We're talking about someone who notices and worries about a lonely girl in his class who doesn't have any friends.
Who risks his ass to protect someone who beat him up earlier that day.
Who bothers to bring her some snacks because she never seems to eat. Who tries to cheer her up when she says that she doesn't have anything else in her life, and spontaneously burst into tears of joy when he found her alive. In Q, he's also very, very happy that Asuka lives.
He used to lovingly prepare lunch for his flatmates every day.
A fairly normal kid who used to have a bunch of friends and did normal kid things with them, apparently enjoying them.
There's this scene in 2.0 where he's on his way to school, and spots his friends waiting for him, and there's that blissfull smile of appreciation spreading across his face.
"What? Asuka is fighting out there? Lemme help, please!"
"Hello Rei! Oh wait, gotta respect your privacy, put some clothes on. What are you doing here all the time? Want me to get you something to entertain yourself with?"
And you wan't to tell me he's a closet misantrophe who secretly craves the obliteration of all life on earth?
If that is indeed what this line of Kaworu's is meant to imply (which I don't think it is. Case in point, Kaworu does seem to like that other kid next to him and given that he's trying to prevent it, Kaworu can't be to enthusiastic about the obliteration of all life on earth. ) then that's plain bad writing.
He has flaws which, at times, make him unsuited for certain kinds of extreme situations, but this is still a bona-fide nice guy under normal circumstances.
This is someone who certainly fears gettinh hurt, but fears actually hurting others even more.
Stated several times in the source material.
Which is another reason why Q is his worst nightmare come true.
For you to even suggest such a thing, you people...
It fucking made me cry right now.
Never before has such a simple freakin movie, such a fucking piece of inky lines vaguely resembling completely fictional people on a computer screen affected me like that, and you people... no. just no.
Geez. I wish someone would already go and translate what little explanation we have
, but then again, I don't think anything would convince you, given how the already-translated parts of this
do not indicate such a radical view of him.
