Their several moment in eva were Misato come on to Shinji. Their not as pronounced in the series but EoE makes it clear.
Do you think Misato was a pedophile? or do you think she was only trying to comfort him and did know any other way to express affection?

If she was a pedophile she would have been trying to get in Shinji's pants more often. Look at when she really makes the " offer " clear its only when Shinji's hurting and she's trying to comfort him.

I really didn't see her trying anything until later and most of the time I think she was just playing around. Their are time I do admit were shes really makeing the " offer "know but again I only see it when she's trying to comfort the poor kid.
I really do think that Misato didn't know what to do with Shinji or Asuka in the long run. In the beginning yes she's just useing the poor kid/s, but I think that for Shinji at least she really did care for him. If she didn't I don't think she'd have cryed the way she did when everyone though he died in unit-1.
Eveny character in eva has problems most of them don't know how to relate or interact on any meaningful level with eachother or anyone for that matter. Misato acts all flerty and air headed, and she's not ubove using people. I think that the only person she ever was really close to in her life was Kaji and the only way she knew to express affection was sexualy.
Im not saying she did not have problems all the characters in the show do. What I am saying is that their are deeper reason for what she did and tryed to do. Not that she looked to pick up guys infront of highschools.
