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

I'm also in agreement with pwhodges on this one. Shinji only learns what he's responsible for pretty gradually in the movie. The only times he's able to interact with Wille at all is when he's completely ignorant of everything in the beginning and at the very end, where he's very much in the middle ...

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

Finally seeing the movie on DVD cemented my belief that the people claiming Shinji is hated just saw that first camrip in 2012 or heard rumors about it, so that myth stuck in their heads and even after seeing the movie on an actual screen, all they can think about is WILLE treating him like he was a...

I guess I stand somewhat corrected on the "Let me kill you" line. In the dub, she says "take your punishment."

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

I finally got around to watching the dub last night. I liked it. What are my thoughts? That unsurprisingly, everyone whining about Shinji being mistreated and hated was full of shit once again. Just being melodramatic. At best, WILLE appears to be irritated with him. At worst, they're pretty pissed....

Re: How To Characterize Shinji As An Adult?

Did this thread really need to take such a depressing turn? Well we're talking about Shinji's attitude, so yes. It's not true to say that everything is hopeless for him or that everyone would be better off without him, but after what he's been through lately, it's completely believable that he woul...

Re: How To Characterize Shinji As An Adult?

I actually think this is somewhat plausible. Not the "taking pleasure in it" part, because Shinji's not a sadomasochist, and if he really hates himself, he's not going to allow himself to take pleasure in anything. But I certainly see him being intentionally reckless. Everyone has a breaki...

Re: How Will Rei be Treated in the Next Film?

Or, quite bluntly, Shinji "is" Gendo and Rei is Yui, in the sense that the Rei fandom is here rooting for Shinji to Bring Back Rei when Gendo wanting to Bring Back Yui, the world be damned, was pretty much his entire motive as an antagonist in EoTV. Maybe that's what Shin Eva is setting u...

Re: How Will Rei be Treated in the Next Film?

Heck, maybe the only way she can return is for Shinji to accept his loss. Like, it would make for a good counter to Gendo. While Gendo tried everything, including committing extremely questionable actions to get Yui back, he failed. Shinji on the other hand, accepted the loss of Rei, and that is wh...

Re: Memories Of Shinji: Months Of Good Vs A Decade of Bad

What really bugs me about 3.33 and the people who defend it is that they fail to realize or even acknowledge that 14 Years have passed for Asuka and Misato. 14 years. They knew Shinji for a few months as a friend/surrogate mother, and 14 years as the one who hurt them in such a personal and invasiv...

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

Ray, quoting Kendrix to try to disprove our claim that Kendrix was wrong about something really isn't an argument. I really don't see how that scene proves what Kendrix says it proves. It's more like Kendrix believes something about the characterization and then reinterprets or assumes things about ...

Re: Untitled post 3.33 fic

Now I like where it's going even more. It's very interesting to see Shinji struggling to slowly but surely re-integrate himself into the world. I look forward to seeing how Asuka's reaction of that continues to develop.

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

We also don't know that she's actually "missing" an eye. If anything it appears there's something angelic under her eyepatch. She clearly does not hate him. She called for his help in the retrieval of Unit 01 when she had no logical reason to believe he could help. That says, to me at leas...

Re: Untitled post 3.33 fic

I really like this premise so far. I also like that you went with the angle that Shinji didn't actually destroy the world. The only criticism I have is that I feel like you rushed through Shinji getting interrogated after arriving at New Constantinople by just describing it rather than showing it. I...

Reticence kind of takes the "Everybody hates Shinji" myth a bit too far IMO, though.

Re: How Hideaki Anno ruined my life.

2.0 practically beat you over the head telling you that GAR-Shinji was a bad thing. He's still like that in 3.0 and that attitude is how he keeps digging himself deeper and deeper into a hole.

Eh. Reticence is good, but some of the characterization reads like a checklist of complaints from an anti-Wille thread.
