Re: Do you think Yui enjoys being in Unit 1?

Yui is a profoundly bent megalomaniac who is arguably sicker than Gendo. I doubt she cares for any of the particular reasons you cited, but I would not be surprised if she is getting something out of it.

Re: Does Shinji view Asuka as someone who can help him?

It was an act of desperation and wasn't really meant to be logical. Shinji is psychologically broken at this point and, in his mind, he has nowhere to turn. Asuka isn't in any position to say "no", so in a twisted way that made her the perfect one to plead to. Huh. Curiously similar to th...

Re: How did you first get into Evangelion?

A friend who was getting into something esoteric called "AMVs" showed some of us this video, among others: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xTftkNwWZP8 Clearly these two lovebirds were the couple of my dreams: childhood friends who were both inducted into this cool giant robot army to fight...
