Rei spinoff thread part three

what if Rei was the MC?

Moe overload or deep insight and thoughtful criticism of the human state of existence?
Both, perhaps?
Styled like Haruhi or Serial Experiments Lain with a bit of Ghost in the Shell?

Continue with the unsubtle excuse for an Evangelion thread, keep it civil

Something that cuts the bullshit and is like an explanatory series. Needs to be filled in with the rest.

>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 Gendo and Fuyutsuki decide to salvage Yui, whichs fails. The second half of the episode is getting the resources necessary for her creation. Thus Rei is created, with the soul of Lilith, but this doesn't need to be revealed yet, perhaps only hinted at through imagery.

>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. Though they shouldn't be there together at this point, this could either be new, or it could be putting them aside in similar scenarios, past and present.

>ep4 - Dividing Affection by Zero
We see the key differences between Rei I and child!Shinji, as well as conflict between the two (if they are together). 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 remake Rei as it's necessary for the second part of the plan. Part of Rei gets placed in EVA00, and the majority in EVA00 - noticable difference. Potential for Ritsuko involvement.

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.

Just as a side note, it would be nice to see Keele in person. I got the feeling that he never shows up physically in the show because he's old as shit and getting to Tokyo 3 and back would kill him, as well as due to the closeness of Instrumentality being at hand he doesn't want to be at Gendo's mercy. But a Keele from 10 years before the series would be young enough to probably manage to drop in. He would be very interested in seeing what Gendo has done with the soul of Lilith. Maybe a scene where he warns Gendo of his sentimentality, and that no matter what, they must fulfill the covenant. Gendo agrees to this.

It's clear that Rei is alienated by everyone excluding Gendo, not knowing any other life but still knowing things aren't normal.

Actually there is a lot more going on than you realize, a normal girl would be flustered or outraged by this, Shinji shits himself and prepares to be chewed out but Rei completley ignores him, plus her apartment has no aesthetic value whatsoever its completely drab. From this lewd encounter we know that Rei is somewhat emotionally detached from the world and she doesn't see any value in possessions or her own body. So I agree, "dat development"
>>
>>100378840
You need Shinji and Asuka. They're good characters on their own, and serve as great foils.
I imagine a Rei-spinoff needs to be more serious business really.

I think these two:
>>100378696
>>100378981

has far too much school crap. The world isn't big and threatening enough.

For a work with EVA and Rei to be successful, school has to be completely secondary to the world as Rei perceives it:
Machinery, labs, tests, prison, purpose, lack of own purpose, and so on.

When Rei gets to school, the audience should feel or think "Why the hell is Rei even attending school, what's the point?". Then you'd have succesfully put Rei on screen and sold the character.

>>100378840
You can't write out either Asuka or Shinji, Shinji could even be there from the start.

But a Rei anime would include the adults more, so that Rei serves as a middle-point between child and adult, of sorts.
She's in both camps, since she's technically young but still free of childishness - she's been warped up to adulthood levels of responsibility.
>>
>>100378981
School episodes whould have Hikari, Toji and Kensuke. I imagine Hikari would try to get close to her, as Rei would probably be a quietly obedient girl in class, but then would get put off by her total disinterest in friendship, Toji would try to get with her with bravado and swagger, and she'd just ask him to leave her alone. Needs a scene where she's sitting in the library reading while everyone else is outside. Librarian comes by, dumps a few more books next to her, says something positive about her being a bookworm, Rei says nothing back, he gets weirded out and leaves her alone.

Kaworu tried to molest both Asuka and Mari and got himself fired.

Kinda like how he tried to molest both Rei and Asuka in the manga. He seemed pretty happy in 3.0, seeing as how he had been molesting Rei Q everyday and he seemed even more happier now that Shinji had returned from space; he'd be able to now molest him as well.

If you had to choose between getting married with Rei or beating Shinji's sorry ass, which one would you pick?

>>100379522
The first 45 minutes will be Shinji crying over Kaworu and being comatose while in Wille custody, while Rei Qgets interrogated but tells them nothing. Gendo unleashes a crap load of MP Evas to bring down the Wunder, all seems lost until Unit 01 awakens, Rei materializes in the Eva and merges with all the MP Evas, and final instrumentality goes down.

>>100379684
Marrying Rei because Rei is probably making a good wife.
Not beating Shinji's sorry ass because he doesn't deserve it, and he's just a kid.

NO PAIN, NO GAIN

A show that has no sad moments or depressing stuff, that's basically just K-ON! with a clone of Yui that doesn't think fun things are fun.

No it really needs to crush you with an overbearing sense of NO-HOPE-ONLY-DESPAIR.
That's why Rei smiling works, because she doesn't give out fifty thousand of them a day, and that's why any good moments would work, or the sense that Rei can strive for something better in the mess of a plot this thing will have.

>>100379961
She might have, but some elementary tutoring at the very least would probably be necessary to get her started. Japanese and German are nothing alike. Above all there needs to be a scene where they go into why she likes reading as much as she does. "When I read, I am alone, but not by myself. I don't have to stay here." or something. Also would be interested in why she chose German. Maybe Gendo pushed it on her in anticipation of Asuka, hoping to make them somewhat closer to make team cohesion better. Which of course utterly failed if that was his plan.

That'd be interesting but it's a stretch to say Rei enjoys reading "very much".
That's a nice suggestion however, from both Gendo and the rest.

I think they could make a point of Gendo being mostly absent, and not caring. He's observing, but not participating, that way when Gendo goes to check up on Rei after the accident, it'll make sense that Rei was impressed.

Also, they need to trim in routine - reading could perhaps not just be suggestions, but part of chores or orders. Part of a schedule. That way you make foundations for Rei being good at routine, structure and logic.

I don't know anything about that, but I don't understand why they would hack apart the original frames and sell them. They lost the original 16mm master print of episode 16 somehow, if they had kept the original animation they could recreate it easier instead of having to fuck with negatives. And after Eva blew up in popularity you'd think they'd keep it on hand in anticipation for eventual high definition release.

The remastering process does not involve recapturing individual frames, it is the process of making a fresh transfer off of the original master real. Hence the name, re-master. So, no matter how many cels and background paintings they have, unless they want to literally re-create the episode by recapturing every frame, redoing all the post production work, ect what actually matters is the master reels.

You're damn right I am. Look at the unleashed faggotry that occured with Rebuild. The series should have ended with EoE. But no, we have plushies to sell to Kawoshits, better go and have violent diarrhea all over the original series.

I dislike how they went almost completely to square one with her development and personality not as if the rebuilds have much remarkable developments in the first place.. Might as well have removed Misato completely and created an entirely new character.

>>100382082
Well if it was a self-harming plot, it'd be a bit better. It's because she hurts herself on accident while cooking.
Asuka does the same.

You know why? BECAUSE ANNO THINKS ITS CUTE. He did it with Nadia too, when she cooks she gets these bandages on her hand.

I would agree except for Rei staring at the knife. That makes it seem far more like she was considering using it on herself. And Asuka self-harming wouldn't surprise me either, because she's an emotional wreck. I guess this is just fankwank, but I dunno why else he'd have that shot in there.

She was probably cooking as well. I don't recall if the elevator scene coming before the Asuka cooking scene though, or vice versa.
>>
>>100382481
If Rei was going to self harm, would it be her fingers?

Sounds like a plot thing that the spinoff could use tho. Not actively harming, but letting herself get harmed. Emo as hell, but it can works. Think Johnny Cash.

The scene is just for Rei to look oh-so-yandere.
>>
>>100382617
Rei's hand has a cut on the wrist and all over it. All bandaged. She wouldn't have got cut that many times on accident. At the very least Rei is self harming.
>>
>>100382785
Yeah I'd want to believe that too, but this Anno... he did the same thing earlier because it's supposed to be cute and show effort.

Your version sounds a lot better, but neither is explored.
>>
>>100382844
I'm inclined to think Asuka might just be for "cute effort", because she has like 2 bandaids. Rei has 10. Add that together with the shot with the knife and the focus on Rei's hand, which incidentally comes right after she says "I am not a doll", and I don't think "cute effort" is what they're going for.

Well I just don't know man. I want to agree, if only 2.0 or 3.0 had given some insight, and it's too late in 4.0.

But as of now it can be both and it's not used for anything. Rei self-harming, cutting herself, it could be something the character does or could do, but I'm not sure if she'd do it actively like that.

Rei does hurt herself actively, physically in combat by showing little regard for herself, and wanting "death" or nothingness in some way. She hurts herself emotionally and psychologically by denying herself basic needs since she's convinced she shouldn't have them.

But could Rei, pick up a knife, and slice it across her finger or wrist? What would she think, what would she get out of it?

What she gets out of it ultimately just fan interpretation. It could an attempt at humanizing her. Maybe the injuries inflicted in battle aren't enough, maybe cutting herself gives her some release she otherwise denies herself due to her emotional rigidity and self denial. Maybe she just wants to claim ownership of herself, that she can hurt herself and they can't stop her.

I dunno man.

tbh I don't think that should be necessary, but there's a lot of people that feel that Rei needs to blush or smile, or be poka-poka to be human. It annoys me.

It's the small things. Ritsuko bandaged her too. Maybe cutting herself, and showing it to Ritsuko would give that kind of release?

I dunno man. I just want Rei to be good again

Rei 02 is going to come back in 4.0, and from her perspective nothing will have happened since the end of 2.22. Since I suspect most of the "Near Thrid-Impact" world destruction actually took place during the timeskip, having Rei back and Shinji discovering the truth would make him realize it was worth it after all, and that he and Rei are the only ones that are one the same wavelength.


And if she never comes back then I will be seriously bummed out.

>>100384321
EoE is only 90 minutes, of which actual Instrumentality events are only about 40 minutes. If 4.0 is centered around Shinji coming to terms with Kaworu's death, and understanding the reason Wille hates NERV so much, (which would probably require several minutes of explanation for what the hell happened in the timeskip), then they'd still have the final 40 minutes or so to have Gendo launch his plan for Final Impact.

And I wouldn't mind at all if the movie was 10 or 20 minutes longer than EoE, or even 30. 2.22 was 112 minutes. Imagine EoE plus 15 minutes of runtime. And that was just for a middle chapter. Final could be a bit longer than that and not wear out its welcome.

>>100384460
Rei's my favorite pilot. While Asuka and Shinji are good characters on their own, Rei appeals to me since I enjoy science fiction and all that shit.

That being said, I fully expect her to have a shitty ending. She got one in the series and she got one in the manga. I'm a realist, I know Anno's hatred of the otaku and their love of something that was intended to be unsettling will win over the otaku and their love pillows.

Shit, Rei winning the Evanjellyun goes against the message of the series: That human interaction isn't perfect, it's full of bullshit but those moments of peace and serenity that come along with it make all that shit worth it in the end.
>>
>>100384451
No, I imagine since Rei is Lilith, it's highly likely that Gendo uses her for his scenario. Two spears 4th impact was a ruse to get rid of Kaworu, leaving him with Rei 02 as Lilith to do his scenario. Remember, Wille said Rei was not detected in Unit 01's core. But NERV and Seele are the ones that put Unit 01 in space. Gendo could have extracted Rei 02 at any point in the timeskip before leaving Shinji there. It's possible he used Rei 02 during the timeskip, which is why Lilith is off her cross and rotting by the events of 3.33. Which would mean Rei 02 would be gone. We just don't know. I don't think it ends happily for Shinji and Rei 02, but I do think Rei 02 will appear in 4.0

NERV (fuyutsuki) says Rei is preserved in EVA01.

It's possible but Rei 2 is just going to appear as a cameo at best. Even if she's alive and well at the end, they fucked up big time.
>>
>>100379782
Except most of that's wrong.

Check Evageeks. The 'death threats' were actually letters of encouragement and appreciation. The 'how disgusting' line was thought up by the seiyuu, not Anno. EoE is basically 25&26 on a decent budget, not any 'fuck you' to a fanbase.

Sure, there's deconstructing of shounen tropes, and Anno has an odd love/hate relationship with otaku culture, but the comical Anno-hates-his-fanbase interpretation is oversensationalised and misleading.
>>
>>100384870
Eh, I can see why you would say the series wasn't a bad end. Maybe hearing all those fucking whiners who were bawwing at the Manga end got to my head

Might play out a lot like EoE. Rei 02 being awoken by Gendo, telling her it's time for Instrumentality, her refusing to help him, and then doing it her own way, or possibly entirely rejecting Instrumentality. Wouldn't that be a trip, if 4.0 just ended with everyone horrified, their Evas all fucked up, watching as Gendo is about to initiate Final Impact, only to have Rei 02 tell him no. Series ends with Gendo dying, never seeing Yui and the dismantling of the Evas by Wille.
>>
>>100384986
>When has he ever been fair with the feelings of people's waifu?
I dunno, Asuka, Kaworu? Basically his own waifus.

It's not a fair appraisal because Anno doesn't hate otaku. He says it himself, and is even protective of them, but he can criticize of course. Anno himself is an otaku, reconfirmed by EVA staff in the new Rebuild interviews.

That Rei gets "shitty endings" isn't because of some major point. It's because they don't want her to have a good ending.
Asuka for instance, is every bit the waifu Rei is. Different taste, but waifu none the same.

Even, would it go against the series?
>Shit, Rei winning the Evanjellyun goes against the message of the series: That human interaction isn't perfect, it's full of bullshit but those moments of peace and serenity that come along with it make all that shit worth it in the end.

Rei finds human interaction difficult. So does Shinji. They are anything but perfect.

Screw winning, it's got nothing to do with a message, and there's nothing that says Rei couldn't or shouldn't get a good (not happy, just thoroughly good) ending in the manga or Rebuild, other than the writers not being interested.

EoE does a good job, and NGE is fair.

This will also happen without all the buildup for the character NGE had, since Rei Q is a dud in Rei form as far as character goes.
They're past the point where they can make something redeemable of Rei.

It's set in the near future and everyone is normal and no Angel/Impact/conspiracy hijinks are happening.

Rei is a standard human chuuni whose delusion is the original and new movie Eva series. Shinji and Asuka kind of get stuck as her minders as a side effect of her delusions involving them.

Gendo is normal and not evil in any way but still does the Gendo pose occasionally, and for some reason every adult thinks everything that happens is some scheme of his. Even his wife.

Lavish budget spent on chuuni-mode scenes, but nothing supernatural happens in the real world at all. Anno trolls everyone again.

Not that anon, but hopefully not.

I love the fuck out of EoE but I'm really interested in seeing what new result Anno can come up with from all of the "build-up." He's probably going to have us waiting at least another year or two until Final's release after all.

Plus, 4.0 might be going in an entirely different direction once the confirmation of Rebuild being a sequel brings in a plethora of new shit.

NGE and EoE is pretty self-explanatory.

But you haven't seen the theory/picture going around about Rebuild possibly being a continuation or time loop?
>>
>>100385621
Rebuild is possibly a sequel to the series and EoE due to multiple universes brought about by Third Impact, or possibly due to a cyclical nature of death and rebirth resulting in the events of Evangelion happening over and over. The only real support for this is that Kaworu says some cryptic stuff about how "This time I'll make you happy", as if it's happened before, and a few other lines. It's advanced level fankwank at this point.

She's fucking 14 years old. When i was in middle school, girls with breasts around that size wasn't that uncommon. Its not like they are hueg or anything, they are still rather small.
But still i see your point.
>>
>>100385246
>>
>>100385914
That's why this is fanwank. There's no good answer to that. If i had to guess, it's because in episodes 25 and 26 Shinji experiences multiple versions of reality while in the midst of Instrumentality, including the one where Evangelion is a school slice of life show with Rei being all cute. Perhaps everybody in going through those choices creates new versions of reality where that is the world, even if they end up rejecting it.


I personally don't like the theory much.

Of course he doesn't hate them with the passion that can shatter suns since they buy all his shit.

I think Rei's destined to get tragic endings because she was invented to be a tool for Insturmentality, to be a doll. She's emotionally confused and practically socially dead but she's much more than a tool. She has wants, desires, needs etc. it's just that she does not know how to truly express them.

And given the fact that she's a mashup of DNA from the Mother of her love interest and the Mother of all life as we know it, I'm not expecting a fairy tale ending that much. Okay, yeah, maybe most of the problem lies with the writers but in the end it's their voice that shouts the loudest.

And fuck yeah, Rei and Shinji have trouble communicating but Asuka's the better choice to show the theme of imperfect social interaction. Asuka's fucking horrid at times, she's one of the biggest bitches I've ever seen and Rei would be much more pleasant to be around but which character is more realistic: The bitch with a hidden heart of gold or the girl who was bred in a laboratory, has a life not even worth calling a life, and has no real history of social interaction meaning you can walk her out of her shell?

Rei deserves much more than a shitty end. She doesn't even need to win the Evanjellyun and have a billion babies with Shinji (Cause God knows she can do better than him even if he does make her Poka Poka) But I'm not expecting a good end.

I'd laugh my ass at all the autism the Reifags would produce if she did somehow win. They'd probably flood the world with tears of joy (Then again they'd fill the world with tears of sadness if she loses)

One of the really shitty Eva offshoots has multiple universes as its Lilith equivalent (Campus Apocalypse). It was made during the Second Impact and original series Gendo was trying to create a Third to get a Yui from the multiverse.

I want to watch it right now, and I only have 1.11 and EoE downloaded.

So let's say (theoretically) I want to watch the Rebuilds.

Which release(s) do I pick?
>>
>>100386637
>>100386659
Oh don't get me wrong, I'm used to Eva not making sense, and to Anno being a rusemaster. Even if 4.0 is a trainwreck, I'm sure parts of it will be excellent. I'm still glad I saw each Rebuild I did see. 1.11 was okay, 2.22 was actually pretty good, especially the end. 3.33 was mediocre, but not all bad.
>>
>>100386251
>I think Rei's destined to get tragic endings
Destiny was never a good excuse, it might seem like this because Rei consistently gets tragic endings or unfulfilling ones.
Tragic endings can also be good.

If you wanted a ending where Rei wins, all you need to do is write up Rei to be a little horrid too, showing that Rei can be like that as well. She slaps Shinji easily, for instance, and jealousy could make her do some bad things. Lilith's dark side only needs to come out. They'll probably do the latter without the "winning" however.
God forbid, they cold do something new instead of pushing the same message, try some new themes.

I need to stress that Rei doesn't need to "win" as much as she really needs to stand solidly on her own, and Rei has in truth, never needed to "win". She needed like every other character, a solid finish to a solid performance. Rebuild lacks a solid performance, and a solid finish won't matter.
Manga has a solid Rei performance but not a good finish.

>I'd laugh my ass at all the autism the Reifags would produce if she did somehow win. They'd probably flood the world with tears of joy (Then again they'd fill the world with tears of sadness if she loses)
Somehow, I doubt either of those. Most realize by now that it doesn't matter if Rei wins or loses, or gets a good/bad ending, because the buildup isn't there.
If you take the manga, there are expectations because the buildup has been good. For Rebuild, there are no expectations.

It's only going to be a point of annoyance no matter what, since the illusion of a well-written story or arc is completely shed.

>>100386783
1.11 is good. It's a recap of the first 6 or so episodes with a fresh coat of paint

2.22 is... complicated. Some say it's the work of God, others don't like it as much. I like it because while it does sorta mutate Rei into a generic love interest and skip a bunch of scenes and has to replace Toji with Asuka in Eva 03 to keep her relevant, not to mention introducing a character that adds jack shit to the story, I liked it.

3.33... Oh man I had fun watching it. It's bullshit, poorly written god awful... it's simply a train wreck. I had fun because I love watching train wrecks and asking myself "Why the everloving fuck would they think this is a good idea??"

Watch for yourself.

The themes would change. But personally I find that lacking endings, that leave something to yet be done, work very well.
Thus Rei can't "win", other than by being alive in some manner by the end.

She can make however, a great catharsis for herself.

I don't want a ending where Rei "wins." Not every happy ending means that Character A has to fuck Character B. That's unoriginal and so cliché and I'm tired of it. Do something now for once.

You make a good point that Rei needing a solid finish. I would rather have a unhappy but in the end respectable to the character and is well written than an Otaku love pillow fantasy. Problem being that the Manga ending and what we can expect from Rebuild is not respectful of her character.

There were plenty of expectations of a Rei end with 2.0. However, as you stated, that buildup is utterly demolished. And it was demolished in such a horrible way.

Rei 2.0 can't win anymore since she's God now. If Rei wins, it'll be Rei Q. Also, Rei Q can't win because Shinji likes everything but incest.

This:

Hasn't happened yet in Evangelion, people just summarize up a winner of who's left and who's got the most focus.

An ending where Rei "wins" could in one case be good, where in another not.

How about a spinoff where it's an episode a character? One for Rei, one for Asuka, one for Gendo etc.

Man I don't need a good Rei spinoff, I just need an Evangelion that doesn't ultimately screw Rei over. The original was good, but the new stuff is just hilariously bad for Rei.

>>100390812
Meh, Asuka is pretty limited, she'd have to rely on every other character to be good.

By all means, go ahead. It gets boring when no one else is posting.

She already is best EVA pilot, she just doesn't pilot at the right occasions with the right EVA.

Yeah I would probably be less sore if the EVA portion of Rei didn't blow so much in Rebuild. Just look at that ghastly orange EVA00, there's nothing new to it and it doesn't even change colors.

Then 3.0 comes along, and sure there's a new EVA, but Rei isn't the pilot because Rei isn't fucking there. Then it's a storyless, boring mook EVA that made EVA05 look more interesting. To top it off, it's STILL orange. Rei Q sucks at using it too.

I dunno, for a soulless clone who can't use a AT-Fierudo, she holds up pretty well against Asuka.
>>
>>100391879
>>
>>100391916
No she doesn't, she doesn't hold up at all and the only reason she got in a hit was because it came by surprise - the hit didn't even do any damage.

This is the last one I'm posting since I'm tired and most of the other pictures of Rei I have are either lewd, involve Rei Q or involve crack pairings with Rei (I'm not too keen on LRS for some reason. Just never have been. I like Shinji and I like Rei but together it's just eh.)

Good night everybody.

The one I'm posting is from the scene immediately after the knife scene. Compare with >>100382785 later in the movie. From 2 bandaids to 10.

And before this scene she had none.

And she was washing the knife in the sink. She wasn't cooking.


Rei cut herself on purpose, and then continued to do it.

Is Shinji/Rei really that that incesty? She's like, half or mostly alien clone. It's more like a superman/lois lane thing.
>>
>>100394825
Probably the happiest Rei ever looks in the movie.
>>
>>100394837
Yeah, Shinji's SO similar to Superman.
>>
>>100394763
I kept both, gimme a few seconds I got a few things to do and I'll get back to it - I kind of love the grainy feel of low quality pics.
