Damn, this Asuka x Hikari crack pairing is blowing my mind right now. I'll need to do some more research before I can comment.

I only see two normal parings in post EOE. Hikari/Toji and Asuka/Kensuke. Anyone who think any other paring outside those can work is on crack. You can not ignore the why Shinji treated his female pilots Asuka more then Rei. He did not respect those girls like soldiers or people he sew them as pieces of meat to mark off to when they were not looking. This is why both girls turn on during EOE. The boy has mental problems like no other guy I seen from anime or cartoon. Plus the boy is either gay or bisexual rather anyone what to admit or not there enough proof over years that proves he not straight. He don't even like action girls, he don't want a strong girl that gonna tell him about himself. He want a girl to be like his momma or more girlee then him. Asuka is not that type of girl which why she up hateing him by the end of EOE. Het in FF like Eva session,boyfriend of steel or anything written by Greg landsman rip the girl out her hot blooded man like ways just to make her nice and girlee so shinj can like her. Anyone who does that are not real Asuka. Kensuke would love a strong girl like Asuka or mari and respect them for being soldiers. Kensuke also has the matureness to deal whit a damage girl like Asuka and unlike Shinji he would never choke her if she gets him mad. The two are also so much alike it scary but in a good way.
Kensuke not a saint but at least he's not a psycho jerking off to a girl in a comma.

Misato and Kaji (or Hyuga!) would like a word with you. So would Rei and Kaworu. Heck, Gendo and Ritsuko might as well (and if not Maya might want it). That's five potential couples that could work just fine, and two of them did work throughout the lifespan of the show.

You can not ignore the why Shinji treated his female pilots Asuka more then Rei.


You don't have to ignore it to resolve it.

Plus the boy is either gay or bisexual rather anyone what to admit or not there enough proof over years that proves he not straight.


When asked what he truly desires, we get a shot of Asuka's rack. Pretty sure that's all we need to know about his orientation.

Kensuke would love a strong girl like Asuka or mari and respect them for being soldiers. Kensuke also has the matureness to deal whit a damage girl like Asuka and unlike Shinji he would never choke her if she gets him mad. The two are also so much alike it scary but in a good way.


Kensuke is even more fucked up than Shinji, and he doesn't have the excuse of Eva. He thought it was a cool idea to sneak into girls' locker rooms and take pictures of them changing, then sell them to anyone willing to pay! That's a little crime called distribution of pedophilia, a felony. If you think Asuka would be okay with that you're wearing shipping goggles.

But the real reason Asuka x Kensuke would never work is because Kensuke thinks piloting an Eva is the best thing ever. He could never begin to relate to what she's been through, and thus he'd be useless to her. Guess who can?

Jive, any pairing that isn't explicitly made evident in the show is a ship. Ships don't gain or lose legitimacy based on your personal opinions.

The question is whether you pair Shinjiko with FemKaworu or Shinjiko with Tabby-chan. Subtle, but different. :lol:

Don't be silly. You pair her with Oscar. Tabby-chan goes to Rei.

Because furiously blushing at another boy, holding hands naked in the shower and then sleeping over with him, then saying "I loved him" is 100% heterosexual. Anyone who argues Shinji is not bisexual is either delusional or subconsciously homophobic. End of story.

Rei x Kaworu is baseless as a canon supported romantic pairing.

Calling someone a homophobe because they don't agree with you is really not cool, dude.

it's the only option either of them has after the show is over, so it's what they're stuck with.

This is anime. I'm pretty sure panties are a valid form of ID in Animeland.

(Also, horny adolescent boy discovers opportunity to acquire pictures of attractive women of his own age and bribe people's lunch money with them. This is nothing new, in anime, Japan or otherwise. Pervy as fuck, yes, but 14 year olds tend to be pervs.)

@Tines: That picture (and basically all of Gunbuster) just reminded me how disturbing talented Anno and co are at drawing surprisingly realistic breasts. It's like they took a course in Tittyology or something.

On-topic, Rei X Hikari? Totally without precedent in canon, but it would be cute. Actually, Hikari with just about anything is adorable.

Touji X Kensuke. All ridiculousness aside (as hilarious as a Touji X Kensuke bara doujin with added fightan would be) I can see them as "heterosexual life partners"- friends to the end and all that. I dunno, Touji and Kensuke are my homeboys.

Misato X Asuka. Her fire can only be quenched with love and cheap beer.

Ritsuko X Rei. They alone can understand each other's pain. Are you sensing a theme yet?

Fuyutsuki X Ritsuko. I dunno, it just works somehow.

Kaworu X Mari. Albino Bishounen Space Jesus and Britty Titty Kitty- it's meant to be. And it will be FABULOUS.

Shinji X Shinjiko. Incest or masturbation? Who cares.

Gendo X Shinji. No, you did not see me write that. Close your browser.

Sensei X Pen-Pen. I...should stop now.
Here lies Squigsquasher.

And yet you still choose to comment with that and say nothing else. How the hell could you argue that Shinji is straight with the contrary information given in canon? There's plenty of evidence for Shinji being bi in the anime. Its glaringly obvious. Like I said it doesn't make sense unless you are uncomfortable by the idea of your favorite anime character NOT being straight. In which case, yes that is homophobic.

Just because Rei and Kaworu have no one left after the end of the series doesn't make them a pairing. They have no romantic feelings for each other. You seem really intent on shoehorning characters into conveniently straight pairings for the hell of it.

Among the people who use the Internet, many are obtuse. Because they are locked in their rooms, they hang on to that vision which is spreading across the world. But this does not go beyond mere ‘data’. Data without analysis [thinking], which makes you think that you know everything. This complacency is nothing but a trap. Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.
