I'm hoping neither Shinji OR Asuka flee the scene during the whole "mama" sequence, whether or not it includes the almost kiss attempt and Wall of Jericho scenes. That'd be a nice difference if they both stayed this time around. And in case I didn't clarify if before, I'm 80% certain we'll at least be getting the Asuka/Shinji kiss scene, even if we don't get the almost kiss scene.

Funny, I'd actually place the chances the other way round. :P
I mean, we already know that there will be apparently an at least similar scene for the almost one - but there's no telling if they'll come anywhere near to the actual kiss.

Hoping and expecting are two different things. :P
And at the moment, I prefer to keep my expectations low to prevent at least some disappointment, if Shinji ends up showing more interest in Rei/Mari/whoever else or if her importance is reduced in general, make her just a shadow of the Asuka we know or even really go as far as killing her off - though I have my doubts that it'd work all that well if any or even all of that would actually come true. XD

If there will be a kiss, I really doubt it'll be in the same context though. It happened in a true moment of calm, in an episode without any action and just character development. I don't see it fitting as it was in the movie.

I wouldn't be surprised if there is no kiss, the manga skipped out on it.... they probably wanna mix it up.

Maybe Mari kisses him :D

Whole Asuka + Shinji thing (we're really off topic here by way, how this hasn't been locked is beyond me) couldn't give two shits.

I'd rather Anno deliver a great continuation of the story set up in 1.0 than waste time fanwanking with "Asuka & Shinji lovey lovey".

But that's just me.

Perhaps a thread split is in due order then, rather than simply locking the topic.

Some people are AxS fans more than they are eva fans. It's kind of like the Tifosi (Ferrari fans), they like Ferrari more than Formula One. If the 2 Ferraris are out of the race they don't want to watch the rest of the race. I find this wrong for some reason. I'm an eva fan first and foremost.

Some of us are both Eva fans and A/S fans are we any less fans for wanting an A/S relationship?

Not at all, it's just that you're not in that group. And I shouldn't have said it's wrong, it's not. BUT the problem is that people who do this will risk losing interest in Rebuild if things don't go the AxS way, or worse if Asuka is killed off.

My apologies. I see your point, i don't think people should lose interest in Rebuild either if it doesn't follow an A/S path. Anno likes to tease what can i say? ^_^

I can't deny that I would be extremely pissed if they killed off Asuka in rebuild, but I would still watch the remaining movies. I'm an AS / Asuka fan because I'm an Evangelion fan, not the other way around. If for some reason AS gets subverted in Rebuild, that will be disappointing, but I will tolerate so I can enjoy the rest it, and get my AS fix somewhere else.

Besides, there's not really any evidence that Asuka will die anyway, not is there evidence that the AS undertones will be subverted. If anything, there's evidence that Asuka and Shinji might actually be closer than they were in the original series.

oh my dear, we've decided to go back to this again (cue teh EPIC music) :headbang: and you're welcome in advance for that backing track to what maybe a glorius thread that rivals those in the ANF archives

anyway, I'll refresh everyone's memory for my take on A/S "shipping" since it's been too long and I gave conflicting statements back then to the "veterans" of this forum if any of them can remember

in a single statement, for the most part, I don't care

but notice how I said for the most part, not that I didn't care at all

I still care for pretty much one reason and one reason only, the end of The EoE, "Kimochi warui", just Asuka/Shinji there on that beach with the floating remains of GNR in an ocean that seems to be suffering from harmful algal bloom

a single question remains, even after all this time and that is:
WTF?

yeah, yeah, you have Rebuild looming larger everyday, but still, how does it end???????

I hope Anno-sensei goes "remodernist" if you know what I mean with the ending

I like AxS, think it makes an interesting couple though if they feel like deviating from this with this version, I would hope they try to pair him up with Mari as long as shes an interesting character.

I just in no way can see or enjoy a pairing with Rei for so many factors, and the sheer boredom of the coupling.

I'm really interested in seeing how Mari turns out.... don't shoot me

i believe everyone is interested in the developmente of a character we have never seen before so yea... im also interested in mari's development..

but yea im with you there... i support AxS and am very much against SxR because of what you said...too many factors to name right now... but the pairing will be sheer epic boredom..

as for my expectations.. i like to keep em high... but am willing to accept low SxA development for the sake of seeing all of rebuild, which i will no matter what happens even if i get major pissed by something... cuz before everything i was an eva fan first...

I keep my expectations low. Really feel that with this truncated version of Eva with these movies, that they will concentrate much more on overall plot instead of spending time on the character interactions. The series and mangas being much longer and open gave them lots of room to explore the characters but these movies I think will sadly cut out any attempts at stuff like pairings.

hmm you know what?? u got a pretty darn good point there... these movies are like only what one half, maybe 2 hrs??? you're very right... i dont see much room for character development, so its gonna work wonders how theyre gonna develop mari...

but hmm yeah... you officially made me change opinions too... :/ for now at least...

If 3.0 and 4.0 are full length movies and such I could see it, but the supposed plan is that they are going to be shorter and played back to back like one long movie, which kills lot of hope I had for this Rebuild.

If they would go with making 3.0 and 4.0 apart and both full length, I could see them working in some more stuff but with how 2.0 is sounding, I think things are gonna move fast.
