I sense Anno's work behind this. Damn he's smart ... If Anno had known how popular and long-lasting Evangelion would have been, I sometimes wonder if he would have made it any differently. I know that Anno doesn't like having hoards of fans asking him the answers to the various riddles ...

I fear this is why Eva has been debated over by its fans for almost ten years, and they will probably still be debating ten years from now. And twenty. And thirty. Of course, this reason is why Evangelion continues to be one of the most popular and widely discussed animes. And it is also the reason...

As I've noted before, there aren't any other boys of her own age that meet her absolute minimum requirement to be noticed. She desperately desires someone who will care for her - and all she gets is Shinji. Yet, she does go out on a date with another boy, does she not? This shows that Asuka...

And yet he does allow them to manifest themselves on several occasions.

The wank scene was towards the end and I agree he stopped being a prude at that point (even before that when he tried to console Asuka when she got mind-raped). As for the attempted kiss when she was asleep, you have a point. However, I still thought he was a prude because he tried it when ...

I was going to argue my Papa-Asuka http://www.evageeks.org/ANF-Archive/images/-grin.gif train of thought here, but I've also got an urge to explore Shinji's relationships with other father figures e.g. Gendou, Kaji. I'm wondering should I start another thread, but possibly include my th...

hahahahaha I must commend you for your efforts in your case. I do think he is a prude BUT I attribute it to inexperience and not because of some innate trait. Based on the urbandictionary.com's definition(s)... =================== 1. prude Prude: a guy or girl (mostly a girl) wh...

Despite the way that EoE ends, I don't think anyone can really say for sure that A/S won't, or can't, happen. IMO, the whole point is that, no, there won't be some magical, glittery happy ending. They are back in reality, and reality involves struggle and suffering -- this is what S...

Sorry, I haven't had the time recently to look through your rather long posts OMF. I'll try and get around to them this weekend. Image

You know, I always wondered about that "What are you doing there?!". (And that seems to be a very direct translation.) What is "there", and why is Shinji not supposed to be there? It's obvious that where ever "there" is, Asuka either does not want him "...

Ahh! So Asuka is directly referring to the social barriers he's erected perhaps? She has at any rate recognised that he's not clueless, he's just hiding behind his social thick skin. Did a little googling on NAIBU . Your going to love this. From a random webpage here . "For another...

OMF, why do you believe that Asuka is specifically refering to Shinji's sexuality when she says, "He doesn't know how to get along with others."? The term "getting along with others" indicated Shinji's general problem of communicating and relating to others, not his r...

I think Asuka may have desired the mythical "Undefeatable Shinji-sama", a fantasy she came to realise would never exist, which would only made her more bitter towards him. He comments are often quite revealing of her internal thoughts. Episode #16: Asuka : I lost! He exceeded me easily! T...
