Re: If Shinji commits suicide...

Personally, I'm far more interested in the question of what would happen if Shinji got caught attempting suicide. Pissed off at him or not, that's a hell of a wake-up call to Misato and Asuka any way you slice it. And you get to see that wake-up call play out without sacrificing your main character ...

Re: How do you like your Gendo?

(On a side note, a Super-Dad!Gendou such as portrayed in Shinji Ikari Raising Project is a hilarious read, if comedy is your thing) However I personally write Gendou as a man whom does love his son, even if he has no clue how to show it. (more or less my interpretation of the character after seeing...

Re: How do you like your Gendo?

Gendo is most interesting to me in the hands of a writer who understands that his villainy, emotional neglect of Shinji and Rei, and callousness make him pathetic as a person and as a father. He's an evil man. He's also a very weak, emotionally fragile person who's too much of a coward to face real ...

Re: Rebuild is shallow tangent

I'd also like to use this post to say that Rebuild is really amazingly bad, especially 3.0, and anyone who pretends otherwise is practicing wishful thinking.

Re: The Shinji Ikari Rebuild Project

I still don't really believe that they actually care for him. Remember Misato wanted to blow his head off and Asuka wanted to take Shinji down while in Terminal Dogma. No, because neither of them actually wanted either of those things, which is why: 1.) Misato did NOT blow his head off 2.) Asuka we...

Re: The Shinji Ikari Rebuild Project

The way I see it. It's like when you hate someone for wronging you in a very intimate way. You say "I wish they were dead" or "I hope something awful happens to you for what you did to me" and in the moment you mean it. But then something bad actualy DOES happen to the person yo...

Re: If Shinji were to die in the final film.

So, what would Shinji have to do to earn everyone's forgiveness and trust? Deciding to fight for humanity's future with no expectation of forgiveness or reward is a possibility I'd like to see fleshed out. Not in the sense that he's given up on life or trying to die, but in the sense of maturely an...

Re: Do people still hate Evangelion 3.33?

The funny thing about accusing Wille of using Shinji as a scapegoat is that the only one in the movie who uses Shinji as a scapegoat is Kaworu.

Re: Do people still hate Evangelion 3.33?

I think someone should either beat the living the living crap out of them, or find some way to off them. And it should be done by Shinji's hand, considering what they did to him. :headbeat: :chainsaw: :shoot2kill: They didn't do anything to him. In fact, they spared/saved his life after preventing ...

Re: How Evangelion Gets Away With Being Terrible

Anno could be planning to go all meta on us and call out the audience for being okay with all of this stuff. Just food for thought; you don't have to agree, but it is a possibility. Okay. So. Let me get this straight. You're entertaining the notion that Anno put so much work, his heart and soul, in...

Damn. Chapters 7 and 8 shook me. I was not expecting it to go there, and it's refreshing as hell to see a writer actually have Shinji attempt that. One reason I've always wanted to see it is because it would force the other characters to show sympathy for the guy, which he desperately needs. No matt...

Re: Stuff that you would like to see in 3+1

For all these valid defenses of Misato (and many of them are valid), that line "From now on you'll do nothing" really did come off extremely cruel, given what Misato knew about Shinji's nature. She had to know that was the most devastating thing she could have said to someone who needs to ...

Re: Should Asuka die in the final film?

I see no good reason to kill her off at this point. You can't kill a character off if they've already had a near-death fake-out. If you do, it severely cheapens the whole affair. Even worse, killing a character off for being "mean" to the protagonist (weird way to describe saving his life ...

Re: If Mari and Asuka are/were Gay. . .

Narratives don't work on the "what would make more sense" logic. If it was the case Misato would have detonated Shinji's head with no hesitation at the start of Q and then they'll have lived happily ever after. That's what any real people with her position would have done, but she didn't ...

Leaving aside for a moment whether Asuka is mentally a teenager or not (we've had this argument a million times here, and I think both sides make good points, so I won't reiterate it), I think we also need to ask which angle Anno is going for in their relationship. And honestly, even noting everyone...
