Re: One last kiss

I'm still going with the Gendo/Yui route. The dude's been jonesing for his Yui fix for 14 years, if anyone is getting a goodbye kiss it'd be him.

Re: NTE characters and their relationships

^ Shinji getting manipulated by his father again is not something that i think should happened in their final confrontation.

Re: How Can Shinji Help Wille Without Piloting An Eva?

@ElMariachi I'm not entirely disagreeing with you, but Shinji did fuck up big time and that's not something that's going to be just handwaved away. If the choker was his punishment for his involvement with N3I then he's not getting away scot-free for N4I. However, that's not to say that just because...

Re: NTE characters and their relationships

^ Hmm dunno how to feel about 3 storylines at the same time (WIllie, Shinji and Gendo) i mean it can work but it could also fail. Then there's Misato line right before Shinji left in 3.0, and i'm paraphrasing, that he was under their protection. Which has interesting implications that the Wunder may...

Re: How Can Shinji Help Wille Without Piloting An Eva?

Looks like things got moved around, so just gonna copy&paste what i said here before things got split. Anyway back on topic. After giving it some thought i just don't see how Misato could have him perform any "menial" task aboard the Wunder. If the crew already had their misgivings the...

Re: How Can Shinji Help Wille Without Piloting An Eva?

Snip As i said, he saw the 10th swallow Unit-0 from the knees up, chew it up, and spit out the head. In what reality does that give Shinji any indication that Rei was salvageable in any capacity? He straight up refused to accept the reality of the situation, Rei was dead and stopping the angel was ...

Re: Pacific Rim

I'm confused, is this like an alternate timeline or something? It has a way more post apocalyptic feel than any of the movies had, so i'm not sure how connected it's suppose to be , if at all, to the movie universe. Still, there's enough there worth checking it out.

Re: How Can Shinji Help Wille Without Piloting An Eva?

@SSA Yeah pretty much, his breakdown later on is more about his failure to save Rei and what it cost him personally in terms of his closest relationships than Rei not actually being there. His agreement to Kaworus plan was to get back into Misatos good graces rather than doing it for them. Doesn't m...

Re: How Can Shinji Help Wille Without Piloting An Eva?

I think people are underestimating just a how badly the 9th angel incident fucked with Shinjis mind. He gave up on the life he had started to form and had 0 plan for the future. So while i do not see his actions to save Rei as narcissistic, they were definitely selfish. I see it as being desperate f...

Re: How Can Shinji Help Wille Without Piloting An Eva?

^ It's still Shinjis story, things resolving without his involvement as a pilot would be anticlimactic. As good as Asuka is, she would've fried in the atmosphere if Unit-1 hadn't destroyed the drone.

Re: Why Shinji is retrieved after 14 years, why Nerv waits for it

Here's the way i think things went, pure speculation and not in order. ⋅ After the failure of 3rd impact Seele decided to modify the last remaining adam to make it have a dual pilot capability since Lillith somehow sealed itself off. ⋅ At some point Willie either stole or found t...

Re: How Can Shinji Help Wille Without Piloting An Eva?

^ Thing is that a pseudo-awakened Unit1 had already rekt the 10th, it was only Shinjis desperation for a W that started an impact by forcefully trying to get Rei back. If he had stopped and simply destroyed the core, there would be a pseudo-awakened eva but no impact.

Re: Godzilla & Kaiju General!

The first preview had Goji, Rodan, JetJaguar, Anguirus, and maybe Titanosaur and some other water Kaiju. So plenty of monsters, though that doesn't say anything about actual screen time. Still i have hopes it'll better than w/e the Godzilla anime trilogy was.

Re: How Can Shinji Help Wille Without Piloting An Eva?

Kaworu not lying is a mere technicality. At best he mislead Shinji in order to make him happy. In actuality he gaslit him with cherry picked information and insinuations. He straight up told him he was the catalyst of what he saw, is that technically true in round about way? Yes, but that's a farm c...

Re: Godzilla & Kaiju General!

Not the biggest fan of this Rodan design, reminds me a lot of fan designs of monsterverse Rodan. Which were basically a giant pterosaur. However with all that being said.

  • Baby Rodan
  • Steampunky JetJaguar
Yes to all of that! :devil:

Re: How Can Shinji Help Wille Without Piloting An Eva?

And besides all that, it would also be a complete contradiction of the rules of storytelling. If you give a character a crushing revelation, one that weighs down on their psyche and motivates their actions, you can't just have that revelation revealed to be false without it feeling like a cop-out. ...

Re: NTE characters and their relationships

Sadly it seems that Asuka is bound to Shinji. 3.0 was the perfect opportunity to reintroduce her with her own arc, but it was not meant to be. So w/e her backstory and role is in final, i get the feeling it will involve Shinji in some way.
