Kaworu stopped Near 3rd Impact by impaling Unit 01 with the Spear of Cassius
Why didn't he just throw it at Zeruel when it was clear it was gonna blow NERV the fuck out?
(IDK) so shinji doesn't have to pilot. that way shinji is a lot more relaxed and his butt will be less clenched.
>trying to make sense of the Rebuilds
actually fuck that. Rebuilds are still terrible but even in the original series the humans were fucking retarded when it came to fighting angels.
Also, maybe Kaworu wanted Shinji to initiate a near 3rd impact but didn't want a full impact
>Kaworu stopped Near 3rd Impact by impaling Unit 01 with the Spear of Cassius
This bit was quietly retconed
Because Evangelion's plot isn't supposed to make any fucking sense
As expected of the master, Anno.
Because 01 awakened.
Because Rebuild's Kaworu is a huge fucking retard.
NGE Kaworu is the only decent version of him.
Or it had something to do will Seele. He had a deal with them in the rebuilds as well, which was heavily implied near the end of 3.33
>the humans were fucking retarded
>Fruit of Knowledge they said!!!
>not being able to make sense of NGE's plot
If anything, it's the rebuilds that have gone completely retarded.
>in the original series the humans were fucking retarded when it came to fighting angels
Why? They won in the end, and out of seventeen angels only one ever got into Terminal Dogma, and the one tat got into Terminal Dogma was helped by the Lilin
>take Lance of Longinus
Shinji already killed Zeruel.
after it completely destroyed Tokyo 3, most of NERV
He was clearly around in order to chuck the spear at Unit 01
Now ignoring the fact they only got the lance after episode 14, it's primary use was to initiate 3rd Impact, SEELE would not let Gendo use the Lance if there were other options.
But if you want to know the real reason it's simple. You know the whole Lilith/Adam switch? Anno made that shit up on the spot. The original idea was that Adam was sitting in Terminal Dogma, once unfrozen from the bakelite he would start to regenerate and they had to use the Lance to control him.
They saved that for the pachinko game
and set the movie up to have Kaworu penetrate Shinji from the rear with his lance.
Because he's dumb piece of shit plot device
That was NERV/SEELE/Gendo who caused the actual 3rd Impact... Shinji only opened the door for them.. Guess Kaworu was too late to be able to undo what Shinji had already done.
>Shinji only opened the door for them
What is that supposed to mean?
>NGE Kaworu is the only decent version of him.
Where he's a complete non character who shows up out of nowhere just to be a plot device?
I dunno, that's what Kaworu said to him. I guess there were prerequisites that needed to be filled (Like Unit 01 awakening perhaps?) before SEELE could make their move to cause the actual 3rd impact (which failed anyway, cause no one became tang and it only created those failures of infinity and make everyone red Evas I guess)
You mean like any Eva installment ever that has him included as a character?
What's your point, anon?
>I dunno, that's what Kaworu said to him
Kaworu isn't the most informed individual of Rebuild
>You mean like any Eva installment ever that has him included as a character?
Well he actually develops in the manga and it gives more insight to how much of a creep he is what with him killing kittens and what not.
Yeah, but he seems to understand what he's talking about when it comes to the Impact shit and Doors of Guf at least. You know, being Adam.
While the series was confusing at times it at least was interesting. The freaking rebuilds blatantly contradict themselves at times. Especially between movies 2 and 3. its best to just try not to make sense of any of it, and don't expect much from the final ether. Knowing anno we won't get any answers.
>but he seems to understand what he's talking about when it comes to the Impact shit and Doors of Guf at least
No, not really. He does know how to manipulate Shinji though
Notice how he forgets to mention that he himself stopped 3rd Impact
He was not manipulating Shinji. Say anything you want about Kaworu but the one thing his character is, is not malicious to Shinji.
He didn't want to show Shinji that shit, he knew it would break him like it did. But Shinji asked for the truth and Kaworu cannot deny him that.
Kaworu doing what he did at the end of 2.22 was irrelevant at that point.
>But Shinji asked for the truth and Kaworu cannot deny him that.
Except omitting the part about 3rd Impact being stopped
That's not telling the truth Anon-kun, that's lying
>Still trying to make Kaworu a villain
You're wasting your time. He's marketed as Shinji true love and soul mate.
>Except omitting the part about 3rd Impact being stopped
Did it even matter at that point?
People died and Earth was ravaged because of his fuck ups. That's really all Shinji needed to know, wasn't it?
and seeing as Shinji is someone who has destroyed the world several times, that sounds pretty villain to me
>Did it even matter at that point?
If you want to tell him the truth then it mattered, if you want to manipulate him then it doesn't
I don't have anything against Kaworu, but the Rebuild writing is retarded and makes him a liar
>Still trying to make Kaworu a villain
He is a villain to all the Lilin
i have a question since this seems to be a rebuild question thread, when Kaworu killed himself or got killed in 3.33, why was his blood red? wouldn't his blood be blue if he was the thirteenth angel? Or is blue blood for the big ones only?
Angel blood is red, Patter Blue is just a code-word
he's an angel, so when he died he exploded in red stuff
>Design best Eva
>Make a big deal out of it
>Proceed to relegate it to extra in favor of a shitty 4 armed Eva 01
Fuck you Anno.
Kaworu is either fucking retarded or is intentionally dying on purpose just to break Shinji.
>Design best Eva
It's just Eva01 with a visor
Better than Eva 03 you dead child
At least I wasn't NTR'd by Gendo
Yeah but Shinji NTR'd you and he'll probably fuck your sister
maybe it just a death and rebirth thing, but sachiel has blue blood in that
he dies in Anima too.
I thought Angel blood was LCL or is that just another Rebuild thing?
>I thought Angel blood was LCL or is that just another Rebuild thing?
LCL goes from reddish to orange so IDK
This is also true, so yeah I guess Angel blood comes in all kinds of colours
Why didn't he just throw that shit into space and make Third Impact happen on the moon?
He's as good as a villain to me. Ever heard about retarded serial killers?
Cheery, friendly, but don't know or think ahead, and end up murdering people because they don't understand that what they're doing is bad.
They just follow their emotions. That's the vibe I get from Kaworu, there is nothing calculated or intelligent about the character.
