What's wrong with any of the children? I mean, come on. They're 14. They're in EIGHTH GRADE. They're kids! They should be playing with Legos and stuff, but instead, they act all emo. "What is my reason for existence?" Who cares!? You're 14! Decide that later! Have fun now! Rei is excused, since she was created, but Asuka? "Hmm, Shinji just stood still when I kissed him. Surely that was because he hates me and everything about me, and therefore I should be all mad and depressed! And Kaji? Man, why isn't he a pedophile? I like HIM..."

Oh, I'm sorry. What was the original topic again?

I've began wondering if emo is even a real thing or just a broad term that covers a whole lot of really common personalities and problems. If angst and depression are emo then emo has been around for hundreds of years.

I think there different kinds of EMOS, like the ones who are in it just for the fashion (don't worry they'll dissapear in two years like that stupid backstreet boys fangirls, GOD HOW MUCH I HATED THEM!!)

The funny thing is that Emo people are in fact happy people without problems pretending they have problems and want to live suffering (if they wanted to kill themselves they should do it and stop suffering)

besides, they do lots of things to praise life like going to concerts, bothering other people (some of them are really upseting), having reunions,



then again I might be wrong, I don't personally know anyone who is Emo but those are my thoughts...

"Emo" people are pretty self-centered to me... they think that just because of the way they dress, act and all the tough times they've been through or whatever makes them "emo". It's like, FYI, /everyone/ has emotional problems. But that doesn't suddenly turn us into a music genre.

I dunno if you americans have it but over here we have what we call scene kids which are basically wannabe emos and twice as bad, most of them are girls and are basically slaggy emos that demand even more attention.

I will say something in favour of the true emos though: it is that the real emos who i have met and stick to the whole philosophy of emo whatever you wanna call it generally hang around with other emos and do their own thing, so appart from being an eyesore they dont bother me.

I think the question about the carpet has been answered though so id like to ask for a split from you lovely mod people.

"Emo" as popularly understood nowadays, is when you have no real problems.

Therefore, Shinji isn't emo. :)

Okay, that's oversimplifying, but out of all the jokes you can make, it's hard for me to see that Shinji's way of acting is some kind of suburban pose, designed solely to get attention.

Emos are a bunch of wealthy teens in the comfort of their parents' homes, indulging themselves into shitty attention-whoring trends, after their girlfriend dumped them and generally had experienced a couple of minor inconveniences of life.

On the other hand, people feeling and sometimes expressing sadness while they are having actual problems -let alone related to unrepairably traumatic events from their childhood- is perfectly understandable.

So, I don't think there's any emo character in this series.

Yes.

Asuka would go for the M. Tron series as it's in her colours. Remember the MEGA CORE? -

- then there was the black and red robot one (probably called something like MEGA X BOOMER BOT - IT'S LASER TIME, BOYZ), the one with the holographic thing on the chest which was way past cool - but the magnets from them would just end up on the fridge or radiators when you weren't using them to try and make a lego perpetual motion machine.

^ Substance abuse is something you put on yourself, it's something within your control.

Losing your family as a child or getting abused by screwed-up parents, on the other hand, is not.

- All 3 of them have rather traumatic life experiences
- Asuka is mentally precocious (recall that part about her having gone to college)
- Placed under great pressure to protect the world
- The EVA screws them up? The guy from the jetalone episode said something about putting the pilots through psychological stress

I was rather surprised that the characters could have any form of normal life.

If I had to guess, it's like "Quoted For Truth," but "truth" has some rather explicit emphasis. Of course, I could be way off on that one, but it makes sense to me...
