Re: What would Evangelion be without Shinji?

Shinji is one of the primary reasons why we're all here, because it gave us a protagonist that required us to not only think, but also to look deep inside ourselves at our own introspective loathings.

Without Shinji, Evangelion wouldn't be the deconstruction anime that it is famous for today.

Re: If Shinji commits suicide...

^ So if you admit that the entire deck is stacked against Shinji, how is HE the failure when it's the world that's failing him? How's he supposed to know what to do if the world keeps offering him contradictory information and sets him up to fail? Just because Gendo does his job as a bastard WELL, d...

Re: If Shinji commits suicide...

Dude, if Shinji was just as hated in the fandom as you say he is, we wouldn't be bothered to defend him in anyway. We'd be just content to just through him to the wolves. And yet, how many of us here, VEHEMENTLY I might add, defend the poor kid? He has faults, yes, but that does not make him unredee...

Dude, don't let him get to you. He talks the talk, but it's just hot air. And there are plenty of Eva fics where there are Happy Endings. RE-TAKE is a primary example of a happy ending being earned. :) And while there are some deaths, each have a meaning to the rest of the story and don't leave you ...

Re: If Shinji commits suicide...

I just said that it's all symbolic, a metaphor. Hell, the entire series is a metaphor for the struggles of human interaction and isolation, as well as clinging to the past. The fact that Anno rose above his younger short-comings and became a better person, I have no doubt that Shinji will become one...

^Dude, it's Stillborn. He does this all the time. And no, Shinji is not going to die. Anno is Shinji, at least from a narrative perspective. If Anno allows Shinji to commit suicide, it would be pretty much be saying that all the progress Anno has achieved as a person was amount to nothing, and that ...

Re: Does Shinji deserve all the hate?

The context of that scene shows just how far Shinji has descended into his own personal hell. Every relationship that he's had so far in his life, he has either been abandoned, discarded, and just recently betrayed. He doesn't know what to think of himself anymore, doesn't know who to trust, and his...

Re: Does Shinji deserve all the hate?

Shinji has problems, yes. He can be selfish, perverted, obstinate, cowardly, and obviously a huge BRAT....but I can't really hold those behaviors against him for everything he's grown up with. Shinji is probably a character that has a constant feeling of depression behind him, where it's always appa...

Re: “Do you love me” Theory - Asuka & Shinji Had Sex in Episode 15

Can't really blame Shinji or Asuka turning out the way they did despite having sex. If anything, it was a recipe for disaster. Don't get me wrong, I'm still AxS material, but given the circumstances, their conflicting preconceptions about both sex and each other, and probably their limited knowledge...

Re: Introduction, Toxicity of AsuShin and other things

Forgive me if I'm interpreting your words wrongly, but the way you wrote "Other people can offer them pretty much only sympathy" implies that the “sympathy” normal people may be able to give Asuka and Shinji is something mediocre or poor. But, after all they’ve been through and the utter ...

Couldn't the same thing about "wishful thinking" be said about ANY relationship? Because even in any relationship, no matter how "good" it may seem it may seem at the start, there's always a chance that something may change along the way: You may find out the person is not what y...

Happy Birthday Asuka. It's now your Sweet Sixteen. Hope you have something special planned for today.

I know that someone else would have something special planned as well. :)

Re: Introduction, Toxicity of AsuShin and other things

Does anyone really believe that Shinji circa episode 1 would be capable of such an act? Definitely NOT. If anything, aside from him succumbing to his more primal urges, I think it was more him wanting to also convince himself that he's such an awful person, that this is justification enough to comm...

Re: What would Evangelion be without Shinji?

People don't like being reminded of the flaws that exist within themselves. That is why so many people are "hateful" toward Shinji, because they don't want to admit that they've been like him. We don't want to admit when we're weak or vulnerable.
