Re: Did Asuka and Misato really hate Shinji in 3.0?

Honestly, if you're going to compare Misato Katsuragi refusing to kill Shinji in spite of having the excuse that the world was at stake to a mad scientist cackling about a tortured horse accidentally killing itself, I'm honestly just going to come right out and accuse you of being insincere in your ...

Re: Impact trigger disrepancy

I tought it was obvious that Shinji's perspective serves only to justify all his treatment in Final. One only needs to remember that Shinji is always wrong. Unless he follows exact instructions of other characters, like a good doggy, he CAN NOT make a decision on his own. He was never a poor misand...

Re: Did Asuka and Misato really hate Shinji in 3.0?

Asuka meanwhile has tried to kill him at least twice, which should tell you something in itself. When? The only time I could conceivably believe this happened is in the climax of 3.0, and he was in danger of inadvertently ending the world there. Afterwards, she has the chance to leave him for dead ...

Re: Hand Cannot Erase/You Must (Not) Run Away | Post 3.33 Fics

I hate Ristuko now. Trying to discredit Misato by calling her sanity into question in front of the crew is despicable.

Can't wait to see the whole chapter.

Re: Who'se really in charge of Wille

Gendo is definitely bluffing, or maybe he's just deluded. At several points in 1.0 and 2.0 he talks about how his plan has almost come to fruition, and yet 14 years later he's still having trouble. He's delusional. That's why he thinks Yui is going to accept him with open arms and why he has no idea...

Re: Did Asuka and Misato really hate Shinji in 3.0?

I'm pretty sure most of the people who are convinced Misato and Asuka hated Shinji made up their minds before they had a chance to see the movie on an actual screen in full quality. Personally, finally getting the movie on DVD threw me off that train immediately. The anger is there, but it was waaaa...

Re: Did Asuka and Misato really hate Shinji in 3.0?

Can you hate someone for not being inherently hateable enough to not hate yourself for not being able to hate them, and thus actually hate them for their inconvenient unhatefulness? :huh: No, on account of the unhatefulness. That slips more into "I'm angry that I can't bring myself to hate you...

Re: Do you think anno regrets making rebuild?

This is not the reason I and many others (not just on this forum) do not like this series of films, and anyone who does cast derision at an author or director simply because the work in question was "sad" is kind of pathetic. Schindler's List was sad, Requiem for a Dream is sad, Grave of ...

Re: Do you think anno regrets making rebuild?

I'm kind of baffled by people talking about Q as if it contradicted anything, like they forgot that they were watching Eva and thought the movies were gonna be some "save the sister waifu and to hell with everyone else" power fantasy.

Yeah, I'm not sure I buy the "crawling back into the womb" thing. He got trapped. Granted, he also did kind of shut himself off there when Rei apologized for failing to bring him and his father together, and he replied that he already had everything he needed. Which kind of resembles givin...

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

Though of course we don't know that. Literally all we know about the "curse of Eva" is that it appears to have left Asuka with the body of a 14-year-old. That's it. Everything else -- up to and including the notion that her brain development is stuck in puberty -- is something fans made u...

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

Their brains may be physically stunted at the age of 14, but they do have the experiences and memories of 28 year olds. Can you imagine an extra 14 years of puberty with a teenage brain still pumping out those middle school hormones? Yikes. I imagine that would cause some pretty unpleasant mental i...

Re: Do you think anno regrets making rebuild?

I can't care about Shinji because the little hope he had left to be redeemed was crushed in 3.33, and at this point nothing can give him hope that isn't a narrative copout. This is the nature of the end of the second act. You need to be patient and trust Anno to tell a story instead of deciding ahe...

I just wanna say that I love where this story is going, and I can't wait to see what develops next. Ever since I saw 3.0 for the first time I've been interested in seeing another character lose control of an Eva or make a huge tactical error that puts them on more equal footing with Shinji's screw-u...

The problem with that is. . . well it's hard for someone to NOT be nihilistically depressed or suicidal when pretty much everything new you see reminds you of how much you've messed up and how you'll never be forgiven. Enjoying nature? "What nature? The Ecosystems f*cked and I'm to blame."...

Re: How To Characterize Shinji As An Adult?

I think it's also helpful to point out that many, many, many people are attracted to troubled, brooding loners with dark pasts, so even given what's happened to Shinji, it should be super easy for you to get away with portraying him as being popular with the opposite sex. The fact that Shinji's not ...
