...and so the thread continues.

Rei spinoff, NGE with Rei at the centre?
Would it be Serial Experiments Rei or 2chuuni4u?

Evangelion.

Is there a picture of Rei in the bear suit?

>>100350597
Anno, Tsurumaki often say they aren't happy with their choices. Some times they say they wanted to do more. But that's all not relevant to the discussion.
It's if, and this is an if, you wanted to make a spinoff where you've got Rei featured as an MC, how would it be like?

It'd be depressing.

In other words, it may be perfect for Evangelion.

Episode names:

ep1 - Before Zero
>Gendo and Yui interactions. A great deal of focus given to Yui's character and motivations, as well as what Gendo likes about her and how she interacts with him. Ends with the startup of the experiment.

ep2 - A Heart of Zero
>Covers the week in which Gendo goes into depression over the loss of Yui. We see him attempt to interact in a broken state, and finally decide to create Rei. The second half of the episode is getting the resources necessary for her creation.

ep3 - Daily Birth Total: Zero
>Opens to Rei I being created. We see other scientists' distaste at her creation. Gendo justifies it to others. We see Gendo as a dad, taking care of Rei, as well as how he juggles spending time with Rei and Shinji.

ep4 - Dividing Affection by Zero
>We see the key differences between Rei I and child!Shinji, as well as conflict between the two. After a confrontation with Shinji, Gendo sends him away on a train. We see Rei I's thoughts on Shinji as well as her own place in relation to them

ep5 - Two bodies, Zero Dead
>Rei I meets Dr. Akagi. We see more behind the scenes of Gendo's relationship with Akagi and how he describes it to Rei. Is what he said true, or is Rei I a manipulative cunt? Episode ends with Rei I getting strangled to death by Akagi.

ep6 - Zero Plus One
>We see Gendo's reaction to Rei being dead again, and his decision to place her into Eva00, and create Rei II. Shows Rei I's mindset at being placed into Unit00. Potential for Ritsuko involvement.
>>
>>100351189
Episode 2 would need to show Gendo trying to salvage Yui from the core over and over before admitting it won't work. Could use a scene with Fuyutsuki where they talk about Yui, because Fuyutsuki loved her too.

"She's gone, Ikari. She won't leave the core and we can't make her."
"We can change the scenario. Have you heard of the Dead Sea Scrolls?"

ep7 - Population: Zero
>Gendo and others struggle with Rei II's curiosity at what happened. Shows Rei II's differences from Rei I, if any. Also shows the Nerv crew's reactions to Rei's seeming resurrection from the dead.

ep7 - Grade Zero
>Almost lighthearted primary school episode with teachers and other children interacting with Rei II. We also see Gendo's instructions to Rei on how to behave, especially after the Akagi incident.

ep8 - Zero Girls Like Me
>Rei encounters bullying at school because of her odd nature and reacts (potentially violently). Rei is pulled out of school, and disciplined by Gendo. Objective is to contrast his interactions with Shinji in NGE with his scolding of Rei. She picks up reading here.

ep9 - Zero Years Later
>Timeskip to Rei II being in intermediate/high school. We run through a daily interaction with her. Girl next to her tries to introduce her to the concept of 'fun', which she asks Gendo about later. We hear people talking about her occasionally.

ep10 - A Couple of Zero
>Comedy episode in which a boy in her class attempts to badly woo her, as her body starts to fall apart. Much blushing is had as she attempts to conceal this from him, and she reads up on romance novels, including steamy ones. She asks Gendo about the boyfriend situation. He informs her that she isn't a real woman, cannot reproduce, and that the only one who can care about her is him. Ep ends with her arm falling off and Gendo having the just-a-clone talk.

Gendo never decided "to create Rei".

Kozo is definitely the brains, Gendo doesn't have the same metaphysical biology expertise that Fuyu has from what I saw in the TV series.
>>
>>100351883
Nah it gets too slice-of-lifey at this point. You need some foils, you need Shinji and possibly even Asuka. Unless there are foils in the script that's not described that remain until the end. You need to show some differences between her and someone else.

If anything, you could start at episode seven, and then continue with episode 1-6. Get the slice-of-life to establish a mood that gets gradually darkened because you realize the situation was a lot more fucked up than it at first seemed.

"Oh, just qt3.14 weirdo girl doing weirdo things", and then you discover she wasn't just being weirdo.

Scratch the boyfriend thing and Rei reading steamy romance novels, if she blushes and is all gooey emotionally this soon, but keep the "just a clone" talk. Gendo can't go into detail.

That and Rei's life has to be secondary to the "plot", or at least feel like it.

This is harder than I thought, and I am not happy with 4 and 6.
>>
>>100352042
The idea was to save Shinji for second-cour, as protest-anon from the other thread wanted a 26 episode anime.

The idea with the boyfriend ep is to do a bait-and-switch comedy/SoL into a darker perspective on Gendo, how controlling he is, and that she's gonna need to live off of bandages, pills and regular stays in a tank. I'm almost looking at a Sayaka-esque transition from cute to broken, to intentionally self-isolating.

I'm assuming that the viewer has seen NGE, which is why (as another anon brought up) I didn't try to play the spooky-mystery card.

>>100351883
I fucked up the episode numbers. Assume the first ep7 is merged into ep6.
>>
>>100352331
>TANSTAAFL!
It's better to use the whole expression, don't you think?

Forgot about him. Substitute 'Gendo' for 'Gendo and Fuyutsuki'.

>>100352038
>Rei was failed attempt to salvage Yui
Do I need to rewatch this again? I completely missed that from the series. I was under the impression that she was a replacement/clone, not the side-effect of a salvage attempt.
>>
>>100352419
>I'm almost looking at a Sayaka-esque transition from cute to broken, to intentionally self-isolating.
Oh I'm definitely with that, except it'd be a mistake to portray Rei as having any cute phase whatsoever but the one that emerges naturally from her interactions.
How Rei becomes intentionally self-isolating, what makes her decide that she doesn't need "luxuries" (which are in reality basic needs like friendship and love), that's one arc and story I'd definitely want to see.

Saving Shinji for second-cour, and have him invigorate Rei a bit is something I'd imagine as working as well - to provide something that makes her reconsider her self-isolation. It'd also be sad but almost necessary for Shinji to reject Rei or for him to distance himself for Rei, so that Rei could feel the absence of what she would just have gained.

In the meantime the effects of Gendo's stockholm syndrome would be slightly wearing off.

>>100352331
Rejuvenation works, but I'm not sure if I can see "Geomagnetic reversal?"
>>
>>100352562
>Do I need to rewatch this again? I completely missed that from the series. I was under the impression that she was a replacement/clone, not the side-effect of a salvage attempt.
She believed to be so, although they don't mention it.

There's a line in episode 23 where Fuyutsuki says something along the lines of:

"Rei.... the product of your something something, and my despair at the time."

Which implies they were distraught because of Yui being gone, and they attempted to salvage Rei - add into the mix that Ritsuko says they attempted a salvage before...

At some point I imagine they saw it did not work, and instead they used Lilith's soul with Rei's body. Perhaps because, as Rei was created, and they attempted to salvage the soul, they got the only soul that was left since the chamber of guf was empty (Ritsuko says this), and that was Rei's - Lilith.
>>
>>100350987
>You wanted to make a spinoff where you've got Rei featured as an MC, how would it be like?
In almost every spin off she was shown as very hyper active and a genki type character. She still shows some, thought very little, mystery charm like who her parents are ect. and she doesn´t seem to enjoy being social.
>>
>>100352655

Yeah it doesn't really work, I am currently browsing my sci-fi mind for something better to use. Trying to keep it old and not relying on my modern sci-fi knowledge which is order of magnitudes greater than my 40s-80s knowledge.

Ritsuko mentions in the episode 17-18 that the only time they attempted to salvage someone (Yui) from an Eva, during her mother's time, it failed. Rei in all likelihood is the result of that failed salvage experiment.
>>
>>100353076
Gunbuster, Nadia, Evangelion 90´s Anno was so based, Its a shame hes lost it.
>>
>>100351883
After ep 10, an episode where Rei throws away an invitation to a school party arranged by the kids, and throws away decorative stuff in her room. Just a shot of them in the trash would do really.

But even before Gendo goes all "UR USELESS" (he shouldn't be that harsh!), Rei would need to be aligned with NERV somehow, to see how their plan is good and necessary, there is a part where that needs to be explained.

To be honest I think that Rei should be able to figure out that she's not normal, or that she's not capable of living a normal life herself. That self-realization is more important than having someone telling Rei that, because if you realize that yourself, it's that much more powerful - normally, if someone tells you something shocking there's a tendency for you to reject it, and Rei shouldn't (at least initially) reject that notion. She should be a peace with it, leading to the "I can be replaced" routine.
>>
>>100351883
> no zero hour
>no absolute zero

Anon, why must you constantly disappoint?
>>
ep11 - Zero Needs But One
>Rei secludes herself from others. Boyfriend-arc is shut down, and she grows distant from others at the school, throwing out a birthday invitation. Instead of normal luxuries, she turns to books, and resigns herself to being replaceable once she breaks. (She is reading either for escapism, to understand herself, or to accumulate knowledge for the next Rei.) On the other side, we see various tests Rei undergoes to pilot EVA. She readily undertakes more harsh tests, willingly putting herself in harm's way. Her goal in life has shifted to being the best replacement she can be. Also contrast Rei's experience with Nerv/Gendo with Shinji's, be it harsher (due to more extensive tests being run) or softer (due to her being liked by Gendo).

ep12 - Zero Defense
>Rei notes that both Unit 00 and Unit 01 feel like 'her'. An angel attacks, and Rei is put onto the scene to try to fight it off, but Unit 01 refuses to operate for her. (Perhaps have conversation with Unit 01, with it hostile towards imposter? Time for Yui to give an opinion on Rei.) Shinji brought in, and successfully fights off the angel. Rei asks about Gendo's relationship with Shinji.

That's the end of first cour. I'm not sure where to take it from here. Do we follow the NGE plotline from Rei's view, or does the series change to have her as a centrepiece? NGE focuses on Shinji, and uses Rei to further his development, but developing her could make her not Rei anymore.

>Rei needs to be aligned with NERV somehow
They have Gendo and Fuyutsuki, created her, and give a sense of purpose to her life. She's not human, and won't live a human life, so I see no reason for her to be invested in instrumentality or even protecting people. She's there for the validation of Gendo.

Why not? That's why she's there from Gendo's perspective, not necessarily her own.... she's preoccupied with finding something else, and she already seems to have something. Bonds with others.

To be helpful to Gendo, and NERV, she needs to be invested into the "project". It's one of the reasons she can make for her to be replaceable - for some kind of twisted greater good.

Rei and protecting others, that seems to be some theme for the character too. Her most famous line is perhaps, "You won't die. Because I will protect you.", and Rei consistently protects others often at the cost of herself.

Neon Genesis Evangelion (1995-1996) is the one you want to start with. It has 26 episodes. There are director cuts for 21-24, IIRC. Make sure you watch those, not the originals.

After NGE, you should watch the first movie, End of Evangelion (1997). It's essentially a replacement for eps 25&26 of NGE, but some say it runs concurrently.

There's also Death and Rebirth as a movie, but it's mostly the director cut scenes placed into a film, and is unnecessary.

That's the end of the original series canon (probably).

The Evangelion manga (title: Neon Genesis Evangelion) is similar to the anime, but it has a few differences. It's a different canon.

There are a ton of spinoffs, such as the Shinji Ikari Raising Project, and the video games Girlfriend of Steel. For the most part, ignore those.

Relatively recently a reimagining movie quartet has been released (Rebuild of Evangelion), which takes the original series, makes changes and releases it as four movies, three of which have been released. You should watch these after the original series, as some pretty big changes are made, a fair bit is cut, and everything (arguably) goes downhill from 2.22 onwards.

As an aside, a good doujin to check out once you're done with the original series is RE-TAKE. It was initially a hentai, but it also has a clean version. I recommend it.

ep1 - The first Other
>Gendo and Yui interactions. A great deal of focus given to Yui's character and motivations, as well as what Gendo likes about her and how she interacts with him. Ends with the startup of the experiment.

ep2 - The thesis and antithesis of man
>Covers the week in which Gendo goes into depression over the loss of Yui. We see him attempt to interact in a broken state, and finally decide to create Rei. The second half of the episode is getting the resources necessary for her creation.

ep3 - Substitution
>Opens to Rei I being created. We see other scientists' distaste at her creation. Gendo justifies it to others. We see Gendo as a dad, taking care of Rei, as well as how he juggles spending time with Rei and Shinji.

ep4 - Rei's maternal jealousy
>We see the key differences between Rei I and child!Shinji, as well as conflict between the two. After a confrontation with Shinji, Gendo sends him away on a train. We see Rei I's thoughts on Shinji as well as her own place in relation to them

ep5 - Rei's concubine jealousy
>Rei I meets Dr. Akagi. We see more behind the scenes of Gendo's relationship with Akagi and how he describes it to Rei. Is what he said true, or is Rei I a manipulative cunt? Episode ends with Rei I getting strangled to death by Akagi.

ep6 - Rei forever
>We see Gendo's reaction to Rei being dead again, and his decision to place her into Eva00, and create Rei II. Shows Rei I's mindset at being placed into Unit00. Potential for Ritsuko involvement.

00 and 01 are prototype models made from Adam and Lilith respectively, the rest are combat models made from Adam.

I guess you could say 02 was wasted on Asuka because of her issues, but the Evas were all functionally similar enough in the series.

Unit-00 is the original prototype. It wasn't meant for combat, but it was retrofitted to be on par with Unit-02. Unfortunately, its batshit insane, mostly because its soul is probably the parts of Lilith's soul that weren't stuck in Rei.

Unit-01 is a special one-off test type. Unlike every other Evangelion, it was actually created with genetic material from Lilith, as opposed to Adam. While this difference is actually a very important plot point, and the reason why Unit-01 is able to trigger Third Impact, its only mentioned very briefly and is very easy to miss. Unit-01 is also special because it has an entire human soul in it, as opposed to a partial soul like Unit-02 and presumably Unit-00. Yui is definitely awake inside the Eva, and has quite a bit of control over it.

Unit-02 is the prototype for the combat spec Evangelions, and in theory is most capable in battle. It has a partial soul, the parts of Asuka's mother that loved her as a parent. However, its soul is mostly dormant, and only awakens twice during the entire series, as opposed to practically every other episode like Unit-01.

Units-03 and -04 were to be the first Mass Produced Evangelions. Functionally they are identical to Unit-02, other than a different head shape. Absolutely nothing is known about their soul, but the fanwank is that Toji's mother's soul in in Unit-03. Unit-04 blew up along with most of Nevada when NERV USA branch tried to shove what was left of Shamshels S2 organ into it.

Plans for further manned Evangelions were scrapped after the Dummy System proved its effectiveness in the battle against the infected Unit-03. Instead, the Mass Produced Evangelions were constructed to be piloted soley with dummy plugs; unlike NERV Japan's dummy plugs, which are based on Rei, the Mass Produced Evangelions use a plug based on Kaworu.

And that's about it. Don't even ask about Rebuild, because its confusing as fuck and they haven't really explained anything.

The combat models don't seem to be outfitted the same as the prototype models. Eva 00 and 01 have radio and radar equipment built into their heads, they're likely packing more scientific/redundant gear than the later models.

I wouldn't say so man. Rei looks like a really capable pilot that isn't allowed to shine, only Shinji outdoes Rei.

The only place where Rei fumbles is when she fights Toji, and everyone failed there.

Rei feels the Angel approaching, but then gets distracted thinking Toji was in there.... next you know, the Angel does a crazy flip and gets a hold on Rei. The fight is aborted by Gendo who blows up EVA 00's arm. Asuka is taken down even quicker and Shinji outright refuses to fight, letting EVA01 do what it wants.

The rest of the time, Rei performs pretty damned flawlessly.

Don't misunderstand, she can get a boyfriend AFTER episode 1, and you're not a neckbeard. Nobody refers to themselves as neckbeards, and there's people who can't even get neckbeards.
Love and relationship is a must-have if you're doing drama like NGE that's heavy into the theme of accepting and opening up to another.
But if she has one like that timetable suggests, it'd make the rest of the episodes weird since a "development" like that needs to stick and it doesn't there.

Proposed spinoff:

Rei DID escape. She's been running around the wasteland, surviving and fighting remnant forces while being hunted by both NERV and WILLE. It's an action-suspense series that delves into the DEEPness of the mythology as Rei uncovers more and more.

It's not fujoshits.

It's confirmed that a large amount of fair minded people on /a/ revere Kaworu as one of the most interesting characters in the Evangelion series.

He's cool and friendly. What's not to like about Kaworu? If you're homosex, then Kaworu can be your husbando. If not, Kaworu is a cool piano playing alien dude who travels through time.

You are not paying attention to all the deepness in her psychology; the traumas created in her childhood and her important (Although mainly inderctly) role to the things that happened in EoE. Asuka is one of the characters that suffer more along NGE. I want her not to suffer anymore.

>>100369964
No, since Asukafags are bitches and assholes, while Reifags are butthurt and bitter fans with no real purpose.
They can only be friends if something changes from Anno's side of EVA so they can rally around something common.

Because Misato is now some sort of military Commander and fleet admiral who happens to own a super futuristic giant space battle ship complete with lasers and anti-gravity.

Even I as a Reifag can't get behind it fully, as in take it seriously. It's playable if you want.

Western EVA fans and also Japanese fans are suffering the full effect of a "lel Rei sux" phase, because of Anno's continuous neglect and almost slandering of his own character and the creative process behind it. Add in lack of good Rei material since then, and you have the current.

Rei Q only enforces the "lel rei sux xD" image.

Not him, but I'd like to see the first Rei having somehow survived and how she like watched all of NGE and EoE while not doing anything at all, because Gendo loved her and wanted to protect her, and thus put her in an Eva, and how she walks out after Third Impact and what happens to her, how she deals with other people, etc.

Rei I wasn't as introvert as Rei II, from what I've seen. Perhaps we could arrange a meeting between Rei I and III?

I didn't propose it, just making a point here.
I suppose serial experments REIN would be the way to go about it, with lots of confusing imagery and so on

There's a good amount of similar shots in NGE and Lain, like the telephone wires and everything having this terrifying white-black contrast, where everything is white but shadows.
They're very similar the two, and Lain/Rei are similar girls, but not nearly the same of course.
Mini-goddesses that doesn't know the world, who are both living lies for another person. Both are tools for someone else to ascend to godhood, which they both deny in the end.

Fuck that man. You realize the biggest reason people don't like Rei Q, is because she's Rei when she's not ACTUALLY Rei?
You can't have Rei I meet Rei II, because in EVA's universe they're the same individual mindfucked and killed so hard they're like two different people. Like someone erased someone's memory and emotions, then put them back.

It only works for "trippy" mind sequences where Rei I represents an aspect of Rei and conveys her doubts for instance.

Truth is, Rei wouldn't have been that remarkable if she stopped half-way either. She'd be like 2.0 Rei, lotsa nice things but not quite there.

That's not fair. I don't like that it happened either, but don't forget your roots anon.

See picture related. You know Rei had it in her to be that all along. Rei even stutters cutely in this image.

What NGE did was make Rei broader like it did everything else however. If Rei had continued in 2.0 instead of being shut out of the anime half-way instead of around episode 23 (which is 3 episodes until it ends!), she'd be pretty good.

Don't be a hypocrite. You say you can't dislike an undeveloped character, well you can't dislike Rei in 1.0 and 2.0 either then.

Rei Q is different because since Rei Q exists, with one movie to go, you will not get either "Rei" to finish a good arc or even make themselves stand out. 3.0 was the shittiest movie for Rei as a character ever, and the third act is extremely important.
>>
>>100373075
You can be "messed up" and still be a boring character with bland objectives and little dynamic to them.
In the original series she was at least odd and slightly hard to figure out, the only obvious thing was that she was Shinji's mom and that's about it. You had to uncover her from her relationship with people, her sudden shift when Gendo was around, and her interaction with the other pilots. She was worried about Shinji and Gendo's relationship but didn't blindly do something cheesy like a "dinner party" where she cooked for everyone. I wouldn't mind that out of some Doujinshi but why from this?

Now she just became a boring loser.

>>100373296
She was caught off guard there, and it was an opportunity to have some insight with her character, instead of going full-on "sh-shinji-kun!! D-don't worry, I'll be th-there for you!"

If you were to never see the original series, you would quickly see the horrid change of character from 1.0 when she slaps Shinji to 2.0.

Nothing deeper about her character, she just became another bland trope of a character which is my point.
Nothing to slowly uncover about her and learn of about, just that she's a whiteknight faggot defending some terrible relationship.

Still present in 2.0 and 1.0. I don't get what your complaint is.

>She was worried about Shinji and Gendo's relationship but didn't blindly do something cheesy like a "dinner party" where she cooked for everyone.
It was actually planned for the original but didn't make it in. I don't think this is cheesy for Rei, you're basically forgetting the entire context of 2.0. Eating and food.

Shinji nurtures Rei and offers her something that is delicious, that isn't pills. Rei sees that and makes something out of it, when Shinji provides lunch.

I will agree this makes Rei appear more softer. I will also agree that there's yet so much more to be done for her to be Rei proper.

Rei becomes a boring loser if you stop featuring her half-way into the anime as well. Even worse in the series even, since her character is more unclear then.
>>
>>100373774
>trope
>>
>>100373774
You know why this is? In the beginning Rei doesn't allude to something greater just yet. It starts creeping in during the second half of the show, and 3.0 is the second half of Rebuild. It tries, but it fails spectacularly because Rei at that point is no longer interesting, because the third movie and it's plot and characters are so important, and Rei no longer has any connection to any of them except those in 2.0. 2.0 ended, 3.0 took over.

Rei did allude to something deeper in the various train scenes, as well as her fish-tank comment. So your arguments are nothing but air to me.

Plus, you already know the answers don't you? There's nothing for you to uncover because you already know Rei's background.

I wanted it to turn out differently, with Rei. But 2.0 is, contextually with NGE even, a great move. It provides a chance for them to not just get into Rei at a deeper level, but differently as well. Rei doesn't have strong relationships or bonds, but she wants them. Then give her one, and see how she develops. It's a great opportunity that never happened because Rei was only ever set up for a stronger relationship, which at this point will only be used to give Shinji the keys to instrumentality or final impact somewhere down the line if even that.
>>
>>100373917
Fine, fine, I could have used a better word.
>>
>>100373917
Well trope is a legit word to use, it doesn't have to be tvtropes. But the way he/she/it uses it, makes it more like a buzzword. You can't base your evaluation of fiction and it's potential on tropes alone.

What his problem is, is that he lacks insight, I mean really: All the characters in NGE were just that, "tropes" or anime standards before the second half kicks in.

Except, 3.0 kicked in and they're still just that. Rei worse than anyone else.
>>
>>100373815
I liked the theme of food, but having her throw some dinner party is still completely out of character. It doesn't indicate any change in character, it just shifted completely without causality.
She might as well be a completely different character, a not very interesting one at that.
>Still present in 2.0 and 1.0
Not really
>>
>>100374139
Rei? Not really, she was much more complex than your typical character type. Asuka? Maybe, but even then they grew her character cohesively and gave insight on what exactly was wrong with her and a better understanding of her in general, not just completely changing who she is.

Nope. It's fairly in-character. I don't see what's OOC about it.
It does indicate change, since Rei in 1.0 or previously in 2.0 wouldn't really make that effort - it's also fitting with the character's own worries and themes.
"Why pilot EVA?"
"Bonds, to all people".

I seriously don't get what you don't see here. It's super-simple even. Rei sucks at the social game. Can't express herself, can't form meaningful relations by herself easily, and what is she doing now? Holy shit Rei is actually being a sly little cunt ain't she? She's going to help both Shinji AND Gendo.
The only thing wrong about this is that if it works, we have no show! Hence Bardiel.

>Not really
Yes really. It has allusions galore more than NGE, and implications even, the problem is that you already know the answer to the puzzles - you should be hoping for a new puzzle to emerge, or a new representation of it, and first of all, that it works and is interesting.

Outright said what? She said a lot of things, and it can be proved that you're full of shit. You're a not new viewer now, but you were once. Rei says more or less the same words.

New viewers now have no clue about what she's talking about. Some viewers even know about NGE's characters and how Rei is an artificially created human before they watch it.

>>100374475
>But that's not really fair, it's a reboot, not a rehash.
It is fair. You can say that all of Rebuild represents a lesser Rei, and I'd agree.
However, the only portion of "new" as in "expanding" for Rei is found in 2.0.

You know the answers man. That's how it goes.

You said it, and because it's a niche doesn't make it good in itself.
Because you approach the subject with such blatant disregard for actual quality regardless of niche or fetish, you could just as well be trolling.

If he did, maybe Rei would be better in the Rebuilds.

I never implied their faggotry was the reason why 3.0 was the greatest thing on Earth, or anything that would "save it", you fucking retard.

>>100374803
You're the only one trying, your post originally had nothing to do with male homoeroticism to begin with. That they managed to expand on Kaworu's character is a joke because that's the last thing they did, since he is now nothing but gay space jesus.

It's only that kaworu fans can't tell the difference because that's the only part they cared about to start with.

How are you missing the point this hard?
When was Rei ever a blatant whiteknight trying to bring together Shinji and Gendo through something like a dinner party or anything like that? She was concerned but she would never take the initiative by doing something as naive as making them eat together, nor would she go on a huge monologue about how she wants them to love each other, she would just toss herself into the hellfire and save them. She was never this "I will defend you with my might" and that is a huge change of character.
Please point out in the original series where she goes on and on about how she will protect Shinji as she does in 2.0
Why the fuck are you trying THIS hard to defend an alright character being blatantly shitted on in the rebuilds that you already agree is shit?
>>
>>100374916
Fair enough, but I never implied it was phenomenal or something worth making a movie great, or even good, or even mediocre. I just like how they explained his role in something more than a few episodes before they reveal he's an angel and has his head broken off (now exploded off). You can't really fuck that up, he hardly did any damage to the story that was already fucked. He just seemed interesting in the original and I wanted more out of him before they killed him off, which they did in 3.0.
Not saying 3.0 is good, or even mediocre. When I say "neat" I mean "wow those fight scenes sure were cool to watch", not "holy shit AOTY!!!"

Why am I still replying to this thread.

>When was Rei ever a blatant whiteknight trying to bring together Shinji and Gendo through something like a dinner party or anything like that?
That isn't what a whiteknight is. She isn't protecting both of them from someone.

I want you to pay attention to the following and what 2.0 does:
> She was concerned but she would never take the initiative by doing something as naive as making them eat together,
Unless, there was a chain of events beforehand leading Rei to finding that a good idea. Such as, but not limited to:
-Shinji cooking for Rei on several occasions
-Gendo conversing with Rei about dinner with others

We know Rei is able to catch the problems of others as demonstrated with Shinji and Asuka in NGE, so it's perfect here in 2.0 for her to take initiative.

>nor would she go on a huge monologue about how she wants them to love each other,
Unless, she was asked. Which she was. Because it's not a monologue, it's a DIALOGUE between two characters.
I thought they could have written a better response for Rei. But everything can't be perfect. I was surprised when I saw Rei being warm, but ask yourself one thing:
Isn't Rei allowed to be warm, or blush, or have feelings? It's called development and isn't illegal.

>she would just toss herself into the hellfire and save them.
She does that too. With an enormous missiles to create more hellfire.

>She was never this "I will defend you with my might" and that is a huge change of character.
See picture related. Remember what Rei said there, and choke on it.

I hate your "interpretation" or lack thereof of Rei. You just want Rei to be emotionless and inactive, admit it.

All the Rebuilds have fight scenes. Great ones.
3.0 is home to cat EVA.

>All the Rebuilds have fight scenes. Great ones.
They do, and I loved the one in 2.0 where they fight Eighth angel. They just outdid themselves in that aspect in 3; hell, I bet I would even think it would have been good if they tossed out all the shit they had going on and made it continuous fights and maybe took away half hour of other bullshit, it probably wouldn't be so awful and maybe alright if you don't mind an hour of nonstop crazy visuals.
>3.0 is home to cat EVA.
Fuck don't remind me.

Alright, alright. It still doesn't feel right with me but that's no argument.
At least you pointed out things that connect with her actual character and not things that would apply to any shmuck, so I can't complain

>You just want Rei to be emotionless and inactive, admit it.
You can interpret that way, I just felt it made her "deeper". Laugh at that as much as you want

Hey at least old emotionless and inactive Rei had a intricate purpose to it and was self explanatory as the story and plot thickens.
Rei Q is just "oh no, I'm a soulless clone, what does it mean to live?" which has been said and done a million times in anime.

They're cats! Isn't it amazing? You know how cats are when they get in heat right?

The fans love horny little cute girls.

You know exactly what I mean.

But you did, anon. You did.

That's why 2.0 Rei is safe inside EVA02, and you get a new emotionless shitty Rei you can make doujins of. Go ahead, do it all you want.
You want 2.0 Rei instead, don't you? Wasn't that much better?

I was trying to find the lyrics, but I remember that I couldn't be arsed.

Mari sings something along the lines of "NYAA NYAA, KITTY KITTY ITTY BITTY TITTY" in 3.0's first 6 minutes.

You see this is why Anno shouldn't be on /a/ getting ideas, he interprets people enjoying their quiet Rei who isn't a one dimensional whore as them wanting a soulless cunt who would just lie there rotting.

>I'm not a doll

This is why I liked EoE, now that's how Rei taking initiative should be done.
>>
>>100376116
>Laugh at that as much as you want
Cry, but not laugh. That attitude from most of the disgruntled non-Reifag fanbase is not uncommon, most were furious that their ships were threatened and their characters not treated well, so they lash out at Rei.

Like you, they don't actually have any reason based on Rebuild as a fictional work with fictional characters for it. They'd easily forget all the developments made, just because they'd rather shit on "poka-poka", a weak-spot that's catchy. When it comes down to it, like you, they don't actually have a reason but "muh moe" or some other reason.

For those people, 3.0 is the perfect movie. It's exactly what they wanted, and so they got it. Bitch Asuka that got a hidden ladyboner for Shinji. Doll Rei that tries to be deep on the virtue of being emotionless and dumb. Shinji that gets rekt so hard he can even walk. Kaworu that mostly smiles and is gay4shinji forever and ever and ever just like in fairy tales.

Also tons of EVA fights, DEEP symbolism.

>>100376546
I don't think he's suggesting eating.
>>
>>100376544
You mean that 70's song she is singing in the start? It is called "Hitori ja nai no" by Mari Amachi
>>
>>100376711
I think you can thank Asuka for that.
>>
>>100376711
It's not that. Anno knows how to make interesting characters, and he knows how to make shitty ones. He knows what to do to make them seem less important, and to outright crush their weakest points.

Anno doesn't care much for Rei. 2.0 and 3.0 together does that to Rei.

Go figure.

>This is why I liked EoE, now that's how Rei taking initiative should be done.
It works in EoE, but only because of Rei III/II developments. If Rei III/II developed differently, it wouldn't work.
>>
>>100376711
/a/ is actually one of the better places, if you got to evageeks you'll get thread-long rants on how Rei is bad and everything associated with her is bad bad bad and that Shinji is an asshole for caring about Rei but not Asuka.
>>
>>100376731
Who gives a fuck about the ships? If anything I'd rather see Shinji and the girls not get into relationships because fuck the nerds who think characters should fuck other characters as a make up for not being lucky in love in real life
>>
>>100376969

Hahaha. So new.

Yes, I realize I ask to much from other people.

As much as the threads on /a/ are a mixed bag with shit slinging and opinion hating, they pale to that cancer manifestation

>>100376969
If you think Evangelion is more than a shipping device as of now and in the fanbase, at least the vast majority of it, you're DEAD wrong.
The content produced by fans, other than single shots of characters, is shippy before it is anything else.

I mean, just look at this. What exactly does this attract, if not shippers?

In 3.0 especially everything that happens is rooted down to shipping before anything else. I mean 2.0 was bad in it's own way, but it at least tried and made something individual for the characters, but 3.0 really takes the cake.
>>
>>100376731
I don't see how you can connect the two though, yeah, they're both extremely quiet, but a lot of characters are and the way they speak isn't all a character is. How they react to issues, what they take charge in, or fear (in respect to how they act) is much more definable on what they are.
A boring, literally hollow Rei being quiet over the whole "what am I" because she's a soulless clone should not be derived from a quiet, extremely shy Rei that is a part of countless, painful experiences who silently dies out of true concern and not for any type of performance.
Go away, people literally don't understand me and I'm genuinely annoyed.
>>
>>100376937
>you'll get thread-long rants on how Rei is bad and everything associated with her is bad bad bad and that Shinji is an asshole for caring about Rei but not Asuka.
Reminds me of /a/
>>
>>100377138
Hm, you might be right about people not understanding you since I needed to read your post a few times.

I agree really, the dialogue isn't everything, but you need something. Rei had good spoken dialogue, really good dialogue too, and what was even more remarkable was her lonely moments of reflection, in her mind or otherwise. They work due to the nature of the character.

Now, Rei Q doesn't have shit.

But the rest I didn't really get.
>>
>>100377271
/a/ is balanced enough for that to not happen, not as I've seen. Even when you do get a poster that's mad because Shinji didn't visit Asuka (assuming he even could since she was under lockdown!) in 2.0, he would get called out on being a fag - not so much in some other places.
>>
so, uh yeah
