Re: Finally *some* positive confirmation about 3.0+1.0 not being in total limbo

I hope he does a lot of screaming anyway. Shinji becomes a lot more interesting when he lets it all out.

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

I've been following this story like crazy. I love post-3.0 fics, and this one is no exception. I really like that there's ambiguity about how people worldwide feel about Shinji, with half the world blaming him for N3I and the other half seeing him as a fallen hero. That's how I would see a scenario ...

Re: Why did Asuka tell Shinji she didn't receive his help?

^ I stay in this on the 'memories of Shinji" thread. If your best friend left you to die in a car accident when he could have easily pulled you out, and him refusing to pull you out left you crippled for life. . . Resentment wouldn't begin to justify the loathing one would have. First, I think...

Re: Why did Asuka tell Shinji she didn't receive his help?

Director Black#848098 wrote:It's typical Asuka fashion. She hates him for causing third impact and stunning her growth with the curse of Eva.


I really don't think she would have pulled him out of that entry plug at the end of the movie if she hated him.

Re: Did Anno Seek to Undermine Rei with Rebuild?

Anno isn't out to "get" anyone. Rei was never meant to serve the Dulcinea Effect power fantasies of Eva's male audience. She was always supposed to be kind of creepy, not a doll for male fans to fantasize about protecting. The developments in 3.0 further prove that, no conspiracies required.

Re: Why did Asuka tell Shinji she didn't receive his help?

Shinji and Asuka are not getting together in rebuild. That ship has sunk and become a coral reef in the 14 years he's been gone. Add on top of that everything he did in 3.33? The romance is dead get over it and move on like Shinji will no doubt be forced to. Are we all gonna have this argument ever...

Re: Why did Asuka tell Shinji she didn't receive his help?

The movie does shiptease a bit, but I think it can also be used as evidence that she's moved on. Asuka doesn't bite Mari's bait like she did with Toji's newlyweds comment, which could mean that she's moved on from that crush. In my view you're overthinking this. The mere fact that she has all that ...

Re: Why did Asuka tell Shinji she didn't receive his help?

But surely she did, with a vengeance - when Shinji asks after her eye and she punches the glass. Asuka was out of action at N3I, so although she awoke to the devastation that caused, the damage to her goes back to Bardiel - and whatever she may have discovered afterwards, her memory of that will ha...

Re: Why did Asuka tell Shinji she didn't receive his help?

Why are we not letting Occam's razor handle this? Mari told him to go save the princess when everything was going to hell. Immediately after, Asuka gets mad at him for not helping her when everything was going to hell. It was about the aftermath of N4I. There's no reason to delve that deep into this...

Re: The Shinji Ikari Rebuild Project

I think the near depth experience is more set up to give a second chance or implicit guilt for the rest of the people to reconsider their treatment of Shinji and only secondarily give Shinji a natural transition out of the catatonia. The catatonia can't go on forever otherwise nothing can really ha...

Re: You Can Start Again

Excellent work, and a bit lengthier than usual if I'm not mistaken, which I like a lot. It's really interesting to see Shinji have trouble integrating into society. Looking back on how lost he was even in 1.0, this is beginning to feel a bit like that, except amplified for obvious reasons. He's also...

Re: The Shinji Ikari Rebuild Project

What do you think of Unit 01 wrecking shop? I kinda knew that was coming eventually. It's a great development, because if it does lead to disaster, it puts the mutinous crew on a much more even-footing with Shinji. They can't exactly claim he has a monopoly on huge globally dangerous screw-ups now ...

Re: How To Characterize Shinji As An Adult?

I think he'd really benefit from spending some time away from Nerv, Wille, Evas, all of that. Explore the Lilin settlement(s) for a while with someone and see how regular people are living. I've actually thought about that before. During season 6 of Game of Thrones. Sandor Clegane spending time amo...

What gives Shinji the will to carry on despite all he's been through? Maybe meeting someone who was saved in some way by his actions before N3I. Maybe some stranger finds him and thanks him for fighting the angels when nobody else could or would. Something to remind him that he's done some good in ...

It actually works the same in real life. A medic can save a hudnreds of lives but if he makes a mistake and kills one, only that kill will be remembered. I'd also like to point out that this is absolute bunk with no basis in realism. If this were true, every medic ever would be remembered as a fail...

Re: 3.33 English dub released, your thoughts after watching?

I liked the voice acting a lot. There's nobody in the movie whose voice work I have any real complaints about. Also, what smug smile? I don't remember Shinji ever smiling smugly in 1.0. Especially not after defying Misato's orders. He was very, very sad in that movie. It's easily him at his most dep...
