Yeah, I thought about that too. The thing is that I haven't watched episode 10 for a while now. But, I remember interpreting Misato's concern over Shinji and Asuka's grades as a mere excuse on her part. She needed to find a way to justify those two not being able to go on that school trip (other than, you know, the obvious fact that they are EVA pilots). Otherwise, they wouldn't shut up about it.
But, I could be wrong.
Just sit here and waste your precious time. When you want to do something, don't do it right away. Don't do it when you can. Read my posts instead. It's the only way to live a life without regrets.

I'd say it's more that Misato doesn't want them to miss out on having a normal life

(No surprise that poor Shinji's grades were in the toilet at that point he missed a week of school in eps 4 and 9 each, and I can't imagine that all the traumatic monster fighting helped)

Or maybe Asuka got her degree in something very specialized & studied just the stuff she'd need for that. Particularly if she did it long distance or something. I highly doubt they sat some little 10 year old with a bunch of actual college students
Alas poor Kaworu, I knew him well...

I used to think the whole thing was super ridiculous & largely an informed attribute, to the point that I tended to HC it as her telling Shinji some outrageous BS to wind it up but I've since heard of actual teenagers working at NASA so I guess I owe Anno & co an apology

One could that since she is super focussed on her position as a pilot, it might be something to do with military or tech, or maybe your basic MBA for bragging rights & because she seems like she'd want to be a very career-oriented person later on. (insofar as she's even considered anything beyond "save earth, beat up angels, get big parade thrown, marry hot older guy")

What sort of degree do you think she'd be interested in in the first place?


I always thought Asuka was one of those "future planner" types, because of how she acted when she saw how easily she could be replaced. And idk what degree she would be interested in, but maybe aviation???
Girls always say things like "Ugh, your such a joke"
But then I question.... WHY ARENT YOU LAUGHING?
