Re: End of Evangelion Traumatized Me

Shinji is clearly aware and present all the time. He never dies. He just comes close. For that matter, nobody else dies, either. They continue to live on as disembodied souls, because of GNR gathering them all. Even the people who got get tanged, so they are part of it. Think of it like going aslee...

Re: End of Evangelion Traumatized Me

Seven months now, and I can still feel them talking to me. I usually pay them no mind, but they’re still there. “You are me. And I am you.” Shinji says. “You should be ashamed for who you are you retard.” Asuka says. “Your mental illness will destroy your world.” Rei says. I don’t want to bury the m...

Re: Stuff that you would like to see in Evangelion 3.0+1.0

The best I can see for him is for him to do a heroic sacrifice, but of course, Anno will never let that happen because "only by living can you find happiness", which is quite insulting to tons of people who have given up their lives to save people they loved. Spoiler alert: Now that you m...

Re: Rei Is Best Waifu

Just stop having literally the worst fitting character type for her to deal with in life, face her just a tiniest, littleest bit less straightforwardly and head-on, smile to her attempts at berating you at first, make her realize you are not putting up with her shit the way she is used to and, rath...

Re: Rei Is Best Waifu

Please, don't misuse the word psychopath so much. Ultimately, it is a disorder, with pretty clearly defined effects. It's not simply interchangable with "evil and lacking self-awareness". I don't mind it being used like that occasionally, but when in the same conversation both meanings ha...

Re: Rei Is Best Waifu

I don't know, she is just ... weird. And not in the good way. You know, like people who put on a quirky/edgy facade - and then you find out that, actually, no, that wasn't a facade and the sentiment turns from "Wtf is going on, this seems strange but fun" to "Jeez, this is actually c...

Re: End of Evangelion Traumatized Me

I had another dream about Evangelion. But this time was different. I wasn’t Shinji this time around, I was Kaworu. I saw myself as Kaworu, and above me was Shinji, piloting Eva 01 in Dogma Terminal. At the same time, I saw myself as Kaworu wearing the kill collar witnessing the Fourth Impact with S...

Re: End of Evangelion Traumatized Me

In manga / anime exaggerated things often happen, but you must not consider them exclusively in a narrative and realistic sense, especially when the author himself doesn't consider them seriously, or explicitly declares that events must also be interpreted in a metaphorical sense. An artwork is not...

Re: End of Evangelion Traumatized Me

Many say what he made a commentary on the world, but the way I see it, he most likely just wanted to finish his story in a way what would be the most honest to himself, to his hidden inner self. It is the most emotionally traumatizing work he's done, as a result. I am confused on what you’re attemp...

I’m pretty sure Rei was introduced in NGE before Asuka’s appearance, unless there’s something I missed.

Re: End of Evangelion Traumatized Me

You have identified yourself with Shinji so much that you are now having nightmares.You have projected yourself in the pains of the film and introjected them inside you, at the same time these pains in the film reminded you of your personal pains. You’re right. All while I thought about this, I had...

Re: Rei Is Best Waifu

She can be very loyal yes. But she does not pilot unit 00 for Gendo she does it for her link with humanity. That said I think it would be very hard to make her do something she doesn't see the point to, she is portrait as a vegetarian pointing abouth having a notrious difficult personality. Rei mak...

Rei Is Best Waifu

Sure, Asuka has ginger red hair, lovely eyes, and a feisty personality but let’s face it, her tragic background and personality has resulted in her being verbally and physically abusive and manipulative to her roommate Shinji. While her actions are understandable given her tragic background, as she’...

I want to let you all know that I am grateful for the support you have given me thus far. I understand that I can be stubborn and defensive whenever I bring up a debate involving a personal topic. I recognize the mistake I have made. I know now that my mental disability is nothing to be ashamed of. ...

Re: End of Evangelion Traumatized Me

Another thing that lingers upon my mind, is the fact that because Shinji is said to resonate with the audience so well, we want to see him succeed. In a way, he has. He recognized that his life has meaning despite all the incredible hardships that he went thought and rejects instrumentation. Still, ...

Re: End of Evangelion Traumatized Me

One thing doesn't exclude the other. As you say, seeing EoE you remembered traumatic events from your past. But your experience is highly subjective, since not knowing NGE you haven't seen the events objectively, following the characters, the plot and the intentions of the authors, but you have pro...

Re: End of Evangelion Traumatized Me

If you don't see the 26 episodes of NGE directly, you won't be able to get out of this vicious traumatic circle you ended up in. The best thing to do is to acknowledge that you made a mistake (watching EoE without seeing NGE), and start watching NGE from the beginning. Btw, this is the Shinji smile...

Re: End of Evangelion Traumatized Me

You are saying what nobody could possibly see meaning in life if they think everyone should just die. Well, that implies what nobody has real breakdowns and low points. Saying things like that is, in a way, childish. That's intentional, people do get less mature, the closer to the heart you hit the...
