I mean there's no part angels in the mythos at all for rebuild or any other evangelion source, the closest you get is the adam and lilith human clones and th gendo/adam hybrid. I think it's just one of thoes things to notice but wont resolve in a plot point....would love if it did mind don&...

You can't build up a false equivalency between WILLE and NERV. They're nothing alike and have completely opposing goals. "Fight terror with a different kind of terror"? Oh no, poor Gendo. :facepalm:

Personally, the only way I could see Shinji believably gaining back everyone's trust and forgiveness without having to pull an heroic sacrifice is if somehow it's proved that it wasn't him who started Third Impact. Shinji doesn't have to earn everyone's forgiveness. Frankly, tha...

I think the problem here is that it becomes more cathartic for certain people to pretend that Shinji is a victim of everyone's sudden hatred and that he would be better off committing suicide. I think in part that's because that type of thinking is the easy way out. The people saying these t...

I think we have to keep in mind that immediately after he woke up, he had a lot of crap thrown right at him way too quickly. He doesn't really have the time or presence of mind to focus on every single particular detail. Cumulatively, it's all just too much for him to single out an issue and...

Asuka... First, she hates his guts. Properly. Misato's holding back, but Asuka's pulling at him like an object; That's not how the character of Asuka was ever used in this narrative, she's something that Shinji has to overcome, not someone who helps him with the overcoming; Jesus, t...

I think dividing people into groups of "Pro-Shinji" and "Anti-Shinji" is inherently problematic. I fail to see how constantly pointing out what a victim he is and repeating the fact that he didn't want to hurt anyone as a way to absolve him of all responsibility and whine abo...

Same body for 14 years = Same brain for 14 years. It's certainly true that Asuka has gotten her act together and no longer has the "I don't need any help from anyone" mentality, but that change happened in 2.0. I don't know why people insist that she's now mentally 14 years...

He was fighting for Gendo up until the Unit 03 disaster. Either way, there is literally no reason for him to associate himself with NERV anymore.

I don't even know if Shinji will return to the ship (considering Misato might lock him up again). I could only see him returning there if Asuka drags him. Its also interesting to see how he will take eva 01 back, I mean if its out of the ship, its main engine power is gone correct? Im s...

The problem with your scenario is that it magically absolves Shinji of too much responsibility, thus defeating the purpose of having him be sorry for what he did by inadvertently causing Third Impact.

In which case, Shinji probably won't age either, considering how close he got at the end of 2.0.

It's possible the reason she have all that frustration and pent up anger is that because of Shinji's actions 14 ago, EVA pilots are considered as freaks and birds of ill omen(the "Curse of EVA" trapping them in their 14 years old body not helping matters) and are ostracise...

Mentally, none of them act 28. How can they? If they're stuck with 14-year-old bodies, they're stuck with 14-year-old brains and hormones. Asuka and Mari have been conscious during those 14 years, but that doesn't mean they're mentally 28. Because they sure as hell don't act like...

He had basically no information to work from. You can't blame his judgement when they didn't provide what he needed to make an informed decision. As a kid he's perfectly justified to fall back to emotion when reason fail. The adults are suppose to know that . It's their lapse in jud...

The second impact he caused was his fault, though. Like he did in 2.0, 3.0 saw him lose his grip on his emotions. Disastrous things happen when Shinji lets his emotions run away with themselves and cloud his better judgment. While Third Impact wasn't really his fault and was merely an accident, ...

Honestly, Shinji screwed up. The near-4I was not something "beyond his control." He was clearly not in the proper mental state to make good decisions, but nobody put a gun to his head and forced him to pull the lances, and nobody forced him to stop listening to Kaworu. He's not evil, b...

And anyone who found the finale "funny" needs to search their drawyers for their soul. I think you guys misplaced it. If anything, Asuka's grotesque reactions are almost as horrifying as Shinji's state itself. She berates him a little for being irresponsible, puts her foot on his ...
