Kaworu embodies unconditional love and acceptance. I don't know if that's what made him popular, but that's why I like him. This. In a series where Shinji is pretty much reviled for being just a confused child, someone finally comes in and tries to reassure him. Otherwise, Evangelion wo...

Including Yuri is fine. Replacing the Kaworu-Shinji Class S relationship with Yuri... Nope. :tongue:

It's definitely the cultural and social standards. I just can't imagine the "casual" audience go on about VAs, because most "casual" viewers aren't that sensitive towards stuff like that. Furthermore they mostly refer to his character in general. Indeed, which means ...

I can't think of a word that expresses that better in English than "curse". "Spell" could also sort-of do it, but is far too easy to interpret in a different way, so would be a bad choice. "Geas" might serve better, but is not widely enough used to be appropriate. ...

I'm afraid I can't choose Instrumentality in any scenario even when taking pain and suffering into account. My reasoning extends into a "what now"? situation in which we "become one", but, "what happens after that"? Nothing happens. It's like sacrificing ris...

Re: Do you think SEELE is right, or was Shinji right?

No, he couldn't do that. He had the power to make a choice, that's it. Even Lilith didn't have the power you describe; the option was ATFs or no ATFs, individuality or collective state. That's it. Agreed. This is the point of the whole damn exercise, after all. In that case; He did ...

Re: Do you think SEELE is right, or was Shinji right?

Do any of you think you'd have been able to turn down Instrumentality if it was offered to you? Or do you think you'd rather go through the "Life is pain, and we should suck it up and enjoy it" mentality Shinji adopted? I'm just curious; I've seen a lot of people argue for...

What I want to know is how Mari initially wound up with IPEA instead of Nerv, and what happened to IPEA later. Did they all die after 3I? Did Mari just ditch them and join up with Nerv/Wille? And what is the IPEA anyway? They initially seem like another Eva-related support organisation under Nerv/S...

I feel Mari's relevance so far has hiked too slowly. I mean; first, she gets shady support, then hacks an Eva out of the storage facility with the help of the UN's IPEA. Just what is she and what are her plans? Was she aware of what would happen when Shinji and Rei fused? Is she aware about ...

"Independent type" may also simply be realted to the fact that we never saw EVA 06 with a cable. It looks like an angel arrived, took over mark 6, began merging with Lillith and was then sealed via spear, seconds from impact, killing Lillith in the process. Or it went kinda like the Armis...

What's more, his superior officers at the time aren't blaming him. I realized that when I saw it. Misato wasn't as cold as she was just trying to tell him to stay in the sidelines. I still see no reason for putting something mortal rather than dealing with him using non-lethal equipment...

One additional point, her wanting to not have an encounter with Gendo or Fuyutsuki would also explain her refusal to open communications with HQ during the Zeruel battle. edit: And she calls Gendo 'Gendo-kun' in Q apparently... holy crap this stuff is lining up :x The -kun part alone puts h...

It still wouldn't have worked, Gendo just had to send ReiQ, kidnap him, tell him that Misato kept him inside a cell under sedatives and here you go, Shinji wouldn't have trusted that bitch any more. There were two solutions imo: 1. Killing him. But he's the protagonist. 2. Explaining hi...

Between slapping an explosive leash on him and more or less treating him like Gendo did, I can't help but wonder if Misato is TRYING to get Shinji to cause another disaster. She's not as maladjusted as Gendo, so I know she doesn't have that excuse. When will people learn that treating t...

Some laws exempt you because you're doing it on self-defense. Not sure if it's universal though.
