I sincerely doubt that a 12 year old went to actual college courses anyway, especially one that's an emotional fragile participant in a program for which (at the time) only two people are officially qualified in the entire world. If it isn't just something they gave her to fluff up h...

Asuka does demonstrate her intelligence. During the volcano episode, she solves Shinji's physics problem so fast he can't even follow it, apparently in her head. She's also the one to figure out how to destroy Sandalphon, and as lame as Matarael is, she shows competence in setting up the...

A potential reading of Asuka's character is that while she craves her mother, she also secretly hates her for mistreating and abandoning her.

She does, but something (presumably loyalty to Gendo) keeps her from acting on it. Unless something happened off screen that activated her ability to generate a field or it was a byproduct of being moved into a new body, Rei essentially had godlike powers and intimate knowledge of what was g...

There isn't much to support it in the text, but I've always had the impression that her university degree was essentially given to her and all of the achievements she brags about were deliberately set up to stroke her ego to help her pilot. It reinforces her self loathing which prompts her t...

Being Unit Two is a horrible fate for Asuka and would drive her hopelessly insane, I don't get why they consider it cool, either.

I marathoned the entire series and EoE doing basically one disk a day. I'd heard of it for years beforehand and had a passing familiarity with Asuka and Rei ( cough ). I knew it was supposed to be incredibly violent and disturbing. I've been into pretty shocking horror fiction for ye...

She heard it from the guy who told Thompson that Kane's last word was "Rosebud".

She can project an AT-Field of unparalleled strength and instantly regenerate a lost limb, both of which imply there's more to her than a normal human. If she can regenerate a whole limb she probably doesn't age. She'd either reach full adult development and never change or else she does...

If Rei is made out of Lilith goo and her continued existence is totally dependent on her AT Field, the medication she takes might be placebos, as in "these pills keep you alive, be a good girl and keep taking them and don't spontaneously turn into a puddle while you do, thank you".

I don't like Arael or Aramisael. All of the other angels have a sort of progression to them, but I'm not sure what either of them was actually trying to do. If an Eva never surfaced, would Arael have just hovered there forever? Their actions serve the plot, but make no sense outside of it.

It depends on your standards. If you abhor them on principle (as I do), probably not. I look at things like Gundam x NGE and just see a lot of characters (in both series) left out in the cold. But, that said, the NGE x Utena mash-up Tines mentioned is better than it has any right to...
