Why is it neon?
When do they begin 4.0?
Why is it so popular after so many years?
>Why is it neon?
Glowing biological weapons?
>When do they begin 4.0?
Ask Hideak Jewno
>Why is it so popular after so many years?
Because it's actually good? What I want to mean is, Kaworu is best husbando material.
>why is it neon?
Because it is the christian apocalypse happening in the 21th century. While the series was airing in 1995/96
>When do they begin 4.0?
God knows.......I just hope Anno isn't lost in all of the plot threads he made.
>best husbando material
He really is.
Really looking forward to the 2+8 battle, the whole thing was supposed to have happened back on 2.0 and damn it looked cute on the storyboards.
Yep, I know, don't trust the preview
> Kaworu husbando material
Thats pretty gay, dude.
so are we screencapping rei today again or what
I saw that anons did it last night
Kaworu is shit.
anons capped every single appearance of rei in the rebuilds and EoE
but they didnt upload it as a zip tho
>Why is it so popular after so many years?
Babby's first "deep" anime.
Even for /a/, this is seriously autistic.
>Why is it neon?
Because new and deep.
>When do they begin 4.0?
No idea, don't really care, Rebuild is dead to me after 3.0
>Why is it so popular after so many years?
NGE was highly successful, and it has had a good image since then.
>Reifags in charge of not being complete autists
i actually just finished watching the last episode, it was nothing special really
Who stole my image.
I liked it better in the NGE episode we meet Asuka.
Not exactly, since the guy was watching it and just capped as he went.
Every scene of Rei only adds up to a few dozen images or so.
coming up with the idea to do it could only be the feast of a true autist
>Really looking forward to the 2+8 battle
I didn't say that I liked the design
Welcome to Reifags.
Now you're just being stupid, anon.
It's more autistic to be like you are right now.
it was you wasnt it
No, but I was there.
Help me Evafags, what's the first thread about Rei spinoff?
Meh, it's pretty common to do this especially for livestreams.
It's a more casual newfag thing to do than autistic really.
Yeah, Kaworu is pretty much perfect.
>Why is it neon?
Because they used neon.
>When do they begin 4.0?
>Why is it so popular after so many years?
Because it was the first of it's kind, emo-anime. People never understood rage before it. It was something new.
Asuka and Kaworu are the only reason people watch Evangelion.
I'd fuck Asuka!?
that scene isn't 2+8 at all. It's just them in the same plug
>plens actually believe this
No idea, you need to go search in the archive.
Try "Rei" MC" and shit like that.
I want to be Kaworu's bride.
I can't find.
Eww! That's extremely gay.
>MY ASS IS LITERALLY A PENIS RIGHT NOW
would you "fuck" misato?
took me three seconds
this is the thread
Misato in original series is my favorite character so yeah. I hate her in rebuild thought.
Fucking Anno destroying everything that i love.
Does this ostensible "fuck" involve any legal contractions or binding obligations?
Your tears only make the master stronger.
>Why is it neon?
If you actually used Google, you would see that it meant Gospel of a New Century.
>mfw it's true
Did Asuka ever find out what the last angel was? I mean she was kinda in the hospiltal through out episode 24 and during the beginning of EoE.
I also find it weird how she never questioned why NERV was being invaded or why she was about to fight 9 other Evangelions.
Only good Misato doujin.
That is one of the many, many questions raised by the End of Evangelion.
Too busy having all of her mommy issues fixed in one go.
Girl don't care, she just wants to drop bodies.
How much do you love Asuka?
She's a terrible person and Asukafags are easily the most obnoxious and annoying faggots to ever exist.
She's a poor damaged thing who really needs to have a proper family and be protected from unsuitable boys.
Typical Asukafag, jumping to conclusions and spouting about Rei, even though nobody mentioned her.
All waifufags are scum, but Asukafags are easily the worst ones.
I want to abuse Kaworu
Keep digging that hole.
I wouldn't say I love her, but I definitely sympathize with her. She reminds me a lot of myself at that age.
OVER THE LINE MOTHERFUCKER
>imma grill btw ;)
Yeah, fuck off.
You are a horrible human being. Please commit seppuku.
i don't understand why they think it's gay. i mean it's Shinji. nothing wrong with a man being attracted to the best girl. i even fapped to him a couple of times and i am definitely NOT gay.
Wait, who did you fap to? Shinji or Kaworu?
Asuka reminded me uncomfortably of my younger self as well, and I've never been the little girl.
I never said I was.
Dude like I said I'm no homo, of course I fapped to Shinji.
A game of pretend...
>Guy asks what Neon means
>Everyone gives him the connotation for 'neo'
That;'s because it still means "new"; neon the gas was named because it was a new discovery.
Still should have called it New Æon Gospel
What the fuck those threads looked fun.
>Why is it neon?
>When do they begin 4.0?
No idea, all we know is that the storyboard is finished.
>Why is it so popular after so many years?
Symbolism, interesting characters, and the low budget that makes NGE, well, NGE. It pretty much left its scar in the anime industry.
Evangelion is fun.
except for the autistic reifags
fuck off rei doesnt smile like this
>Mfw I watched EoE before anything else.
I don't know what possessed me to do that.
I was extremely confused.
Watching the ending of a series without watching the rest of the series would do that to you.
If it makes you feel better, a lot of idiots make that mistake.
I remember I watched the last episode of FLCL first on accident. It almost made the rest of the series easier to understand.
If you hate Anno that much you COULD make your own canon.
That would just be fanfiction.
On which other boards do you post m8
I think I've seen you on /mu/
I don't hate Anno.
>yfw this is her largest smiles in the whole canon
I think the one from the original series was bigger.
Fanfiction is not canon, it's just a personal fantasy.
What is RE-TAKE?
Sure as hell not canon. Yet.
I rather seeing people talk about the characters at length than "I want to do x to y".
I wonder when using autistic incorrectly will wear off on this site though?
The bigger question here is:
Why the fuck isn't there a blu-ray release of the original series?
Kowaru is a very loving being, but I think he's getting a little tired of Shinji's bullshit. I was also surprised at the bit of spirituality they expressed in 3.0, which I could relate too, how many people have failed in fixing the entire universe. Buddah's, Gods, Jesus's, many of them have tried but none have completely remedied the problems with this universe and us as individuals try to achieve this state, occasionally people will have a moment of zen, glory and understanding, like whenever you achieve an epiphany of sorts any normal person can have or personal revelation is hence reflective of the universe. For example, in 3.0 the multiple attempts and failed unit 01's who couldn't become infinity, which sort of expresses Anno has the same feelings spiritually as many other people currently existing.
How long have we existed now, 13.8 billion years and we still haven't fixed this shit.
Also, the scene where unit 01 goes hand to hand with an angel falling from the sky is based on sleep paralysis, trust me Anno is like open book to me.
Well, he's probably an asukafag or something.
Truth is the only people that ever did serious discussion on this board like that would be Reifags.
There's some few exceptions for others.
There's a ton of official art of her smiley though.
I'm saying that just because you would rather prefer your own personal headcanon does not mean that it should be labeled as actual canon in any way.
You're free to disregard the official material, but in no way are you to say that your works are canon.
One of the best, possibly THE best, but not the only good one.
Kaworufag get out.
Because Anno doesn't need the money just yet.
Wasn't the resolution too messed up to make a blu-ray?
Licensing issues between Gainax and Khara.
I don't have a side since I like all 3 children. The nerd wars get a little tiring though.
thats the angel in rei III, not rei III tho
The film masters are good enough for BD (except that they lost some of episode 16)
Not a chance.
Though there's another Jake that browses /a/ that you might be thinking of.
wheres this from
Why don't you like /mu/ ??
One of the games
God fucking damn it, anon. I was so prepared for feels and I had to laugh against my own will.
Don't tell me that's Kaji.
this picture makes me seriously uncomfortable
Because I'm a pleb that circlejerks to anime and video game soundtracks, and I know better than to wander where I don't belong.
Shit, that was one of my favorites.
Same. No problem with Hikari, but the little faggot whose name I forgot, who always wanted to be a pilot, he'd make it awkward as fuck.
What the fuck, Shinji.
No, EoE, is confusing either way, you'd probably only understand it marginally better if you watched the entire series. EoE can be explained though in one simple phrase; it was instrumentality, that's all it was. It's something that's so hard to define, that the definition in itself is the movie and nothing else.
Also, I like sounding deep in evangelion threads.
You can circlejerk to anime and pretentious hipster shit at the same time :)
Yes, trying to explain women to Shinji.
do you know some freudian psychanalysis
Congratulations, you're part of the reason why there is so much misinformation regarding Evangelion!
>Also, the scene where unit 01 goes hand to hand with an angel falling from the sky is based on sleep paralysis
You know the characters in EVA are all fucked up when it's a grown man teaching what women are like by crossdressing.
If he had a decent sync ratio, Kensuke would probably be an amazing pilot.
He's just fanwanking.
The whole post is the textbook definitional of a fantard fanwanking out their own ass.
he would shout retarded shit and be too euphoric for Rei's CCC attitude and Shinji's betafest
Asuka would find him obnoxious.
The characters in Eva have issues, but spinoff games really shouldn't impact your opinion on NGE.
>tfw you'll never see Toji, Shinji and Kenny triple tag team down an angel and then rub it in Asuka face.
Feels like a wasted opportunity man.
But Kensuke is an Asukafag who gets off on being abused, so it all works out in the end.
I don't understand gays. The act of reproduction is an attempt to produce an offspring, so any attempt at intercourse between a male and a male fruitless. If you are fucking a male, you are in reality trying to procreate, but can't, whereas as a women has all the tools biologically to produce an offspring, a male has none of these traits. As you see dominant and submissive gays, it seems to me that they are in fact, trying to fulfill the role of male and female psychologically and sexually.
So basically, I'm afraid of gays and pianos.
Remember this /a/?
And we'll never have this scene either
That I'm ok with.
>he would shout retarded shit
The kid was a military buff who would have taken the job seriously.
He's the kind of person I'd expect to transform entirely once in the cockpit. He'd probably be a happy medium between Asuka and Shinji, but actually know how to follow orders.
As it stands, we've already got a group with Shinji as Chaotic Good, Asuka as Chaotic Evil, and Rei as true neutral. Having a lawful neutral/good would make the group dynamic more interesting I think, and Kensuke fits the role pretty well.
heterosexual spirit pls go
>Why is it neon?
Because it's new. Just like you.
eeh I doubt that
Know your memes
Anyone have the copypasta about why the spear shit failed?
Being a military otaku has no impact on how well you pilot or synch with an EVA.
Kensuke would get crushed just like Toji did on his first battle.
>not posting the music link
>not having 4chan sounds
Why the fuck do you think I had the filename as sounds?
What if Kaworu fugged Asuka during the timeskip?
People who watched Eva for a 15 min appearance of guy are nothing short of pathetic and cancerous honestly.
But he only has eyes for Shinji...
Fujo fodder doesn't talk to other people let alone touch girls, anon
Fangirls everywhere would piss their panties and Pixiv would explode with LAK.
Always made me think of this.
No, but I have the one where some guy wrote an essay of how gay themes permeate EVA.
The story of a man who took everything.
It's probably the most NTR thing imaginable.
They really only met once in the manga, correct?
HAHA we crackship now.
She met Karl in the manga. Not exactly Karuguu smooth.
Double the NTR, double the fun!
That's not what I asked for kid.
>Implying she wouldn't fall for him
If Asuka could develop a small crush for the pathetic wimp that is Shinji, I'm sure she'd be all over Kaworu's dick. They probably met sometime after he came down from the moon.
Asuka is pure She only engages in the purest form of love.
There's an angel inside your headquarters
He's been sleeping with Shinji
He's loud though without piano chords
We'll put an end to him.
>It's probably the most NTR thing imaginable.
Doesn't have to be NTR, unless you're into that kind of thing.
It's possible, anything is possible, but he's made to talk to Shinji as that's about as far as his character extends.
He's full blown homo in Rebuild.
That's forbidden love.
HOLY FUCK THESE ARE ANTLERS LYRICS
I wish that I had known in that first minute we met, the unpayable debt that I owed you. Because you’d been abused by the bone that refused you, and you hired me to make up for that. Walking in that room when you had tubes in your arms, those singing morphine alarms out of tune kept you sleeping and even, and I didn’t believe them when they called you a hurricane thunderclap.
ITS OBVIOUSLY SHINJI TALKING TO REI
When I was checking vitals I suggested a smile. You didn’t talk for awhile, you were freezing. You said you hated my tone, it made you feel so alone, and so you told me I ought to be leaving. But something kept me standing by that hospital bed, I should have quit, but instead I took care of you. You made me sleep and uneven, and I didn’t believe them when they told me that there was no saving you.
Why am I not surprised Kaworu only comes up in ship stupidity and other shallow shit
Why am I not surprised Tang only shows up now
I find it amazing that Kaworu became this near mythical/infamous character within the fanbase no matter what x-fag you are.
He's super space gay jesus who just also happens to maybe make an exception for Asuka because the fangirls will it and the heterofags are okay with it too.
But it already was NTR.
In the duration of a single episode, Kaworu waltz in, and takes everything that Asuka struggled so hard to accomplish, even stealing the boy she had a crush on.
And then his clones promptly kill her immediately after that.
Seriously, the number of ways that Kaworu's existence fucked asuka over is stupendous. He ruined her in every single way imaginable just short of literally raping her.
Then I masturbate over you~
THEYRE TALKING ABOUT THE EVANGELIONS
You’ve been living awhile in the front of my skull, making orders. You’ve been writing me rules, shrinking maps, and redrawing borders. I’ve been repeating your speeches, but the audience just doesn’t follow. Because I’m leaving out words, punctuation, and it sounds pretty hollow. I’ve been living in bed because now you tell me to sleep. I’ve been hiding my voice and my face, and you decide when I eat. In your dreams I’m a criminal, horrible, sleeping around.
Those were Kaworu dummy plugs acting on their basest desires to eat out Asuka.
>Kaworu was the one who came up with the term, "Lilin"
>The only person who used the term in both NGE and Rebuild
>Final scene in 3.0
>Out of nowhere, Asuka also uses the term Lilin
I find it amazing you actually believe this.
Which is why I said "if he had a good synch ratio".
Plus, understanding and using the battle field to their advantage is exactly how the children managed to defeat so many of the angels to begin with. Kensuke would have contributed a lot in that department.
>implying Rebuild is canon
They're connected now via Asuka's angel eye.
Asukafags and Kaworufags are the de facto shitposters in the Evangelion fanbase.
Oh boy, I really do wonder how the fujoshi would react to this given how entrenched Kawoshin is.
But then again, the amount of LAK art surpassed LRS over just one interaction in the manga.
There was once a time when I had to get the crackship derail going, but now the thread does it all on its own. I'm so proud of you guys.
Tabby-chan is the angel of moe
And Reifags are the eternal crybabies whining over how the universe never caters to their desires.
Was it any better before?
FemKaworu is actually pretty attractive. I think I might turn gay if you keep posting lewd Tabris.
You guys do know its "Neon" genuinely because the nips who titled who misspelled "Neo", right? They fucked that up and found out later but just stuck with it.
Was it really?
Oh god no.
This is how you tell if someone hasn't watched NGE, /a/.
Neon and Neo are both correct in Greek, though.
I'm in no hurry to return back to the generals.
Who's talking about it?
>Kaworu looks like a cross between Akagi and Kaiji
That Sinko, though.
See, point proven.
In other more important news Kaworu and Shinji went on yet another date to a bathhouse.
>just took away Mari's breasts
They mean two different things, and Neo Genesis makes 1000x more sense with the actual story.
Fuck you, I've watched NGE 6 times.
Rebuild killed Eva threads.
Is that Moebage? How often do they come out with new sets?
I'm sure they're just hanging out like good friends should. Nothing lewd about it.
That Asuka and Rei though
It's just Kaworu fans desperate for any reason to talk about their waifu.
This thread is almost as bad as the tumblr generals, holy shit.
oh god, the tumblr noses, it burns
A MALE waifu?
I think you mean husbando
Which point? The one where you're a buttblasted Reifag?
Holy shit get the fuck back to tumblr.
It's not unheard of for guys to bathe with each other in bathhouses.
It's completely platonic, I swear.
>implying boys can't be waifus
Did someone just say "kaworu" and "tumblr" in the same post?
No boy can have an ass this fine.
I think he means the part where you conceded to his claims
I think he means the part where his asshole is badly damaged.
I don't think it should be that unusual.
The Reifag conceded his the moment he posted.
Kaworufags and Tumblr go hand-in-hand if you're just figuring this out now.
I'm not checking you, m8.
This is what Evangelion is like now. Move over old man, make room for shippings!
>he is buttblasted because you proved his post
I mean that you're shitposting maximally, validating my post.
not a reifag
>implying I'm a fujoshit
Try again Reifag.
This thread is just an excuse to dump fanart. Go make your own thread if you want to circlejerk over how great it would if the Rei was the MC of EVA.
Not too sure about that but twitter japan was pretty pleased with this one.
>btw Imma grill XD
Wow, this thread. I guess a thread with that OP image just attracts the worst fujoshits.
>all those sparkles
Here's the part I don't get:
Why was Asuka's plugsuit mended to begin with?
Was there something I missed?
you're making it worse with shiptoasting
She's wearing her old plugsuit from EOE
If it ain't broke? I dunno man but the tape was bugging me the whole time.
Yous seriously think you're fooling anyone with the cancerous content you're defending?
No, you try again. Your Misato reaction images don't fool anyone.
This thread is a general Eva thread, not your fujoshit hugbox.
>This thread is just an excuse to dump fanart.
>implying that's what I'm here for
Actually, I ended with about 150ish images just for 2.22
You got me Misato is my beard.
Apparently it happened during the time skip. More or less matches up to the damage the suit took in End of Evangelion, supposedly.
I miss when ev/a/ was good
I feel immensely grossed out fujoshi try to hide behind other characters to shit up threads with tumblr shit
EVA threads were never good.
But if it wasn't broke, then why'd they give her a new one?
Originally, I figured it was from the fight with bardiel and that the repaired suit was their way of saying she was only recently reawaken prior to shinji. But the fact that it's not even the same plugsuit from that fight raises more questions.
Now I just wonder how they got the suit from EoE?
Just before 3.0 they were actually pretty fun
last night's were cool tho
>No, EoE, is confusing either way,
No it's not.
Asuka and Shinji's daughter brought it from the previous tinmeline.
>That feel when EoE was a terrible continuation but a good movie, if a little silly, if you compare it to the original series.
>That feel when the last two "episodes" are fucking stupid garbage about the characters acting emo.
>That feel when gays got upset when they wanted an epic ending after 24 episodes even though it was not needed.
>That feel when the new movies and the absolutely disgusting animation.
There was no shitflinging, but there really wasn't much in the way of discussion either.
It was a joke anon. I'm just addicted to shitposting, don't blame me it's a disease.
It's probably not from EoE, but just a callback. Hell, ARK would even argue its just a coincidence since they only match up about 90% of the way and not 100%, but then again ARK is opposed to anything that suggests Rebuild is a sequel.
This is what someone who has been shitting up the threads would say.
the first rei spin-off one was cool
He'll be posting his nude pictures after 4.0.
>implying those three things are related in any way
The second one was cool too.
The guy dumping Rei screencaps kinda ticked me off, though.
Maybe they wanted to get her a new one but it wasn't ready yet or something? I dunno, seems like they'd have plenty of time since it's been ripped for 14 years. Maybe she didn't want a new one.
If you're implying that the generals were any good leading up to 3.0, you are wrong. There's a reason why the posters within them, not /a/, decided to halt them for good. They were at their best when we still had things to speculate about.
Yes they were. Some of the best threads I tell ya.
You newfags don't know.
There was some good discussion there, a lot better than usual
They are actually, we didn't really have eva-tripfags or namefags, just normal tripfags.
Now there is.
I miss those threads.
it sounded cool
And it's so popular still because it's getting remade and it was good and widely watched.
I like both Kaworu and Asuka equally. What does that make me?
Oh so just shitposters as usual then.
Fujoshit in denial.
Since when did liking Kaworu and Asuka make people fujoshits?
They were some of the worse things in the generals (butthurt and stupdity from rei fans, asuka fans ,everyone), but the absolute worse are the fujoshits/kaworufans that came from tumblr who were the reason for all the /q/ drama.
No, at most that's what you could find of tripfaggotry and namefaggotry.
Today there is that, plus eva-specific faggots.
Not Asuka, just the fujoshi bait.
A man of both good taste(Asuka) and shit taste(creepy fag)
How long are we talking? Because from what I remember, there have always been eva specific tripfags for a long ass time. And I've been here since 07.
>plus eva-specific faggots
Again, no difference from shitposting.
Tripfags like Destrado, Reiheart, and ARK had been around before the generals, Tang was probably born during that time.
Since it involved your Homosexual Lord and Piano Man
But the two Asukafags you mentioned are some of the less spastic ones. Totally agree about Kaworufags from tumblr starting shit, especially with the Reifags for god knows what reason.
LAK isn't homosexual.
Reifags were PISSED at 3.0.
I thought homolord was a pretty cool dude.
Hell, Rebuild was probably the least gay I've ever seen him behave. He didn't even first base with shinji, take baths with him, or anything.
I meant I have no idea why the Kaworufags were apparently going out of their way to start shit with the Reifags after 3.0 hit.
When the camrip was released Reifags blamed Kaworu for shitting up EVA. Kaworufags were obviously pissed when they heard somebody was talking shit about their perfect husbando.
Half of it is.
No just star gazing together and staring into each other's eyes. Totally hetero.
No, I would argue that it's stupid to assume she moved through dimensions just to explain injuries that she clearly got in the movies themselves, and also point out that the injuries don't actually match up anyway.
I think they got really butthurt about the reifags getting butthurt about the film(because muh gays). It's kind of hilarious.
Every time it's posted a person dies from HIV.
Reifags were deluded enough to think that Rei would ever that Kaworu's place as romantic interest.
The generals aren't where it started to go really bad.
It had soured up a bit for some time before, but things were still acceptable.
>there have always been eva specific tripfags for a long ass time. And I've been here since 07.
Straighter than all the other times they spent the night together.
So we're more or less in agreement, since that's basically exactly what I said, sans the stupid part?
>to think that Rei would ever that
Are you having a seizure?
Even if you're the least gay guy at a pride parade you're still pretty gay.
Well it's not 90%, and I'm not opposed to everything sequel, just the stupid stupid stuff.
EVA threads last year were just unbearable, as unbelievable as that may sound right now. Kaworufags were basically driven out of /a/ altogether, but it looks like they're creeping back bit by bit so that's why you see them starting shit with Reifags more often lately.
>but things were still acceptable
That's why there are still general threads, am I right?
>The generals aren't where it started to go really bad.
They absolutely were, because fujoshi came in and pretended to be other fags to start stupid ship wars and other useless things.
Did anyone save the Rei spin-off episode list?
Kaworu isn't even gay you guys.
Shinji and Asuka are both girls, unless you're implying Asuka has a dick. Though I wouldn't really be surprised.
I'm just saying that I liked his characterization more in Rebuild than in previous iterations.
Kaworufags actually are Asukafags.
Thanks a lot, now they know how we know it's really them.
Karl was best and you know it. He killed kitten so you don't have to.
You misunderstood, by the time generals arrived, things were already kinda shitty.
Generals exploded into the shitfest that still lasts today.
Karl was pretty awesome, but he was still a total douchebag before shinji softened his heart up with his gayboy love.
Everything on /a/ is archived on foolz
It's true though.
Asuka acts exactly like a fujoshit except for liking yaoi. Girls like that relate to her completely.
I bet if Asuka was 3DPD she would frequent tumblr as well, writing social justice blogs on a daily basis.
Not all of them. LAK just comes naturally since they're shippers at heart.
If you're trying to say that EVA threads were better off as containment threads, then you're still wrong.
They are just too scared to use Kaworu images as they know they'd get shat on or disregarded so they use other characters as shields.
Because all Asukafags are shitposters, amiright
He was more interesting as an autistic douche who automatically expected people to like him than as a flaming homo who people just automatically liked.
Not what I'm trying to say.
Rei is 2D and she already is a fujoshit.
YOU'RE NOT SHINJI GET THE FUCK OUT
You know what, generals were better as containment threads.
The fanbase has changed too much. It's now more infested with tumblrites and retarded people, since the source material is so retarded.
It's Code Geass-ish and it peaked with 3.0.
>Girls like that relate to her completely.
Since when did /a/ start caring what womyn think?
I agree about being more interesting, but I'm talking about how likable he was.
Kaworu in the manga was a guy I loved hating. Kaworu in Rebuild was a guy I liked liking.
LAK comes naturally because Asuka is popular with the female fans as a self-insert and Shinji isn't a "perfect husbando" like Kaworu.
It changed largely because of those generals. It was already getting sour a while before them, but everyone got really comfy with their little community and didn't want to let it go, and now a year later threads are still just awful. The tumblrites and retarded people popped up because of the Generals.
Most girls like Asuka don't have the body to make up for the personality.
The problem with the generals was that they were breeding grounds for tripfags and tumblrtards. The last dozen generals weren't even discussing EVA at all.
That's kinda what I said.
The last thing she'd give a shit about is social justice
She's crazy, I'll give you that.
Misato tries to get the d
Rei tries to get the d
Asuka tries to get the d
Yui tries to get the d
Kaji tries to get the d
>mfw Kaworu gets it, then dies
>It changed largely because of those generals.
tumblrites and retarded people (you) don't pop up because of generals.
They come to exist because Evangelion has changed.
See above, they always existed. Generals just made things worse here on /a/.
Did you mention the "self-inserting" bit though?
Yeah, no one cares about Rei.
Akin to social justice bloggers, Asuka doesn't give a shit about real social justice, she just wants to rant about how she is better than everyone else around her.
She's literal tumblrshit incarnated as an Anime character.
I hated them both and only Karl felt satisfying to hate.
Who do girls self insert as when they ship mariasu?
Blogshit and BR never happened outside of the generals, and thank god they don't happen now even if all we talk about nowadays is meta.
That's still the same thing as shipping.
What I don't understand is why tumblrites take to this place at all. Isn't it completely away from their interests? And to add to it, they start shitposting.
I'd like to say she's a shitposter in anime form.
Extremely weak and insecure, but a total shithead.
I've been around for a long time. There really wasn't very much tumblr before the Generals, and you could have decent threads before them for a while. In the Generals, there was blatant tumblr bullshit, tumblr images, links to tumblr, all that shit. There were stupid arguments or just plain no discussion at all.
Generals died, which is good, but Eva threads have stayed at that generally awful level for a while.
>I hate a fictional character
Wow, check out all this rational edge.
Rebuilds attract the Kaworufag.
>X tries to get the D
No, fujoshit, that's not the fucking show. Please go.
That's good enough for me.
She doesn't need a made up ideology to do that. If anything she'd look down on them for needing other people's support.
Not necessarily, shipping doesn't have to involve a self-insert.
I couldn't tell you; most probably just do it because they think its cute. Actually, most dedicated Mariasu fans I know are actually dudes, go figure.
Mari is the self insert character.
They were always here, lurking. You only saw a massive spike during the generals.
See, if you post without rhythm, you don't attract the Kaworu/Asukafag-type shiptoaster.
Generals made a rhythm.
But seriously, it's because Rebuild and spinoffs are massively tumblr-friendly. 3.0 went overboard.
Fictional characters are made to arouse emotions in people. If someone can love a character, of course someone can hate the same character. Kaworu is a total annoyance in the manga so I totally understand why someone would hate him.
Didn't he kill a cat
Please make another one with Kaworu
>No, fujoshit, that's not the fucking show. Please go.
Not him, but... yeah. This is what Evangelion is now. 3.0 proved that.
Karl is the best Kaworu. Not saying he's good tho.
>I have no feelings regarding characters in the media I consume.
Are you seriously autistic?
Most of mariasu people just thinks it looks cute, but Mari is the self insert character there, someone with no past and just a bunch of "cool" actions to use as a guideline
>They were always here, lurking.
Well yeah, every single tumblr faggot didn't just funnel in all at once, but lots of people did come, many people were open about it where they never were before, and it was just overall awful.
I don't think I see tumblr bullshit that rampant anymore, but quality has stayed low.
>Rebuild and spinoffs are massively tumblr-friendly
What does that even mean?
Like this, you mean?
When did /a/ start calling Manga Kaworu "Karl" anyway?
Yes, it was probably gonna starve so he snapped it's neck. It's the first thing he does after meeting Shinji.
The only thing missing are the eyes.
>made to arouse emotions in people
Never denied that, but having an actual passionate hate for a fictional character is the most retarded and autistic thing I've ever heard.
It's not real, is your actual life so dull and depressing you have to vicariously live through a fucking Anime and its characters?
>I don't think I see tumblr bullshit that rampant anymore, but quality has stayed low.
The bubble burst. Noone takes Rebuild seriously any more, and Rebuild is the biggest hottest thing that overshadows everything, it is the biggest Evangelion production in the entire history of the franchise.
>What does that even mean?
See, this is why you're stupid.
Nah, they weren't. You just didn't see that shit before. I recall some tumblrfuck called avocado slice or something linking between the generals and there which must have encouraged it.
If it was gonna starve why not just feed it
I love how you make it out that Reifags are the only ones who are able to discuss the show when for the past year all they've been doing is acting out the first four stages of Kübler Ross's model for loss and grief.
Seriously, if Reifags hadn't needlessly started shit with the Kaworufags that time we wouldn't even be having this discussion right now even if Kaworu is nothing more than fujoshibait.
3.0 didn't prove anything. Kaworu's head literally fucking exploded and blood and brain matter splashed all over the entry plug's walls, right in front of Shinji's snot and tear filled face. The lowest portrayal of a protagonist possible.
3.0 proved nothing.
Get hyped for 4.0
I think it was the pre-3.0 threads where it became widespread. Before it was in a series of posts with someone "describing" each of the angels and misspelling their name, Kawrou was "Carl", it was changed to Karl in the threads
>Nah, they weren't. You just didn't see that shit before.
I did, but it was rare. So they were always there, just not in numbers.
Nice backpedaling. Nowhere did I say I had a burning passionate hatred for Karl. I hated the character as much as I liked others.
>See, this is why you're stupid.
Now anon, I asked a simple question. There's no need to insult. Saying that it's tumblr friendly could mean many things depending on your view of it. Unless you're talking about how Rebuild is more bare bones, less substance, and has more gay than the series had, then I don't know what you'd be referring to. Even then, that's pretty shallow to lead to "tumblr friendly"; that's just more of it being newbie friendly, there for people who just want to watch something pretty.
People use hate very loosely and it doesn't mean it's anything intense. You're getting way too worked up about his opinion for some reason. Calm down.
>all this denial
Rebuild isn't exactly 'Tumblr friendly', it's just much more acessible to the average anime fan compared to the TV series.
That loud and obnoxious part of the fanbase may never have picked the original series up but decided to pick up Rebuild because of the hype surrounding it and the flashy visuals.
Because Karl is kinda a dick.
As stupid as they were, the whole clusterfuck that was coddling was hilarious.
Do you have some sort of alert hooked up to foolz everytime your name is mentioned or something?
>reifags in charge of discussing alone
You need harmony, you need diversity. You need a buncha people who take things seriously.
>Seriously, if Reifags hadn't needlessly started shit with the Kaworufags
Never happened. tumblrites, kaworufags burst in and pissed everyone off.
Does this mean Sadamoto is into dicks?
I have a video containing all scenes of ayanami rei cut and pasted together. Anyone want it? It is 40 minutes long.
So, why can't you put two and two together? You knew what I was referring to.
>Even then, that's pretty shallow to lead to "tumblr friendly"; that's just more of it being newbie friendly, there for people who just want to watch something pretty.
>there for people who just want to watch something pretty.
in other words, tumblr-friendly.
ARK, just go and stay go.
>because of the hype surrounding it and the flashy visuals.
Good on the way of bein tumblr-friendly then - add kaworu, shipping, and this is everything tumblr loves.
It's hard to take someone seriously when the only thing they can audibly whimper is how the Big Bad Anno took away their favorite doll.
No he's into wins. For best girl
don't underestimate my power level
>kaworufags burst in and pissed everyone off
Where's your proof?
Kaworufags only retaliate when someone insults their husbando.
You've been trolling and baiting so long there's no way for you to redeem yourselves. You said it yourself, Kaworu is nothing more than fujoshibait now and because of that being mentioned Kaworufags get mad because fujobait is exactly what they want, only they don't want it pointed out
You have to be out of your goddamn mind if you think Reifags are the only ones who thinks Kaworu is a shit or is indifferent to him. What kind of hugbox are you from?
>there are people who think Kaworufags on /a/ are real
Honestly, I don't think anyone here is this much of a pleb and really gets a kick out of b8ing in Eva threads.
Not like actual Kaworufags outside of 4chains aren't complete retards as well though.
Exactly, nobody takes things seriously any more.
>Kaworufags only retaliate when someone insults their husbando.
In an ideal world maybe.
Karl won the Sadamoto, that's all that matters.
No anon, that's not specifically tumblr-friendly, that's just crowd appeal. Tumblr may fall in that category, but to just say it's tumblrfriendly because they're part of the large group of people that the movies appeal to is just shallow.
Hell, shipping doesn't even have anything to do with the movie itself; shipperfags are going to ship no matter what. It sounds like you just want to throw the blame at something.
Homosexuality is a sin.
well, aren't you gonna dump the .rar?
Kaworufags are also Asukafags.
A delicious sin at that.
those tits are way too saggy for a 12 yo
<< A/S shippers are here
& still not recognising when their ship is holed below the waterline.
>Kaworufags only retaliate when someone insults their husbando.
Kaworufags are some sort of semi-eva fan that pretty much only cares about the Kaworu, that is if it was all Kawoshin all the time, they'd be happy. So especially during general-times they were constantly shitting up threads with pure shippingbait and faggotry, which is at heart incompatible with good discussion.
They never needed to retaliate, since they were all out to begin with. Because criticism of 3.0 equaled to criticism of "muh kawoshin", leading to more shitposting and trolling to even this day.
The fact that they came in during the generals which got a whole new flavor of shtflinging due to them. You have to be delusional to think your kind had no involvement, hell I'd say you were the source of the bulk of shitty posts.
Reifags were the ones who to took it to the next level and the Kaworufags responded in kind. All this escalation led to the pile of shit we're all in today.
Kaworufags are content and happy with both NGE and Rebuild, unlike Reifags and Asukafags who get the worst ends of the stick everytime.
They aren't going to stir up shit unless someone else stirs it up first. Considering Reifags are the angriest this time around, it was most likely their fault.
She's 28 in 3.0, you know.
>Or kill kittens named murphy
I was laughing up until this point.
>No anon, that's not specifically tumblr-friendly, that's just crowd appeal. Tumblr may fall in that category, but to just say it's tumblrfriendly because they're part of the large group of people that the movies appeal to is just shallow.
Ark pls. We're all dealing with overlaps in groups, and since that certain crowd-appeal is spot-on for tumblr, it WILL make it's way over her in greater numbers.
>Hell, shipping doesn't even have anything to do with the movie itself
You know what, I'm going to stop replying to you now.
She's had 14 years more gravity than the average.
And Asukafags are just going around pretending to be Kaworufags to troll.
Nobody actually likes Kaworu/Karl outside of Kawoshin, you know.
It sure ain't Asukafags because they know Asuka always wins.
>kaworufag trying to troll a random ship because people hate them
I like Kaworu.
Being happy & content doesn't mean they don't shitpost and act like retards.
Go away Destrado, you were supposed to be a normalfag by now.
Goddamn, those generals were a fucking pain to go through after almost every thread was guaranteed to turn into meta shit and Kaworu fanboying.
Kaworu took her Eva, stole her crush in a minute, gangbanged her and then devoured her.
Asuka may have won against Rei, but Kaworu destroyed Asuka.
The fujoshits pretend to be Asukafags/otherfags to troll so other people won't suspect them of being shitposters. I know. I seriously know this as a fact.
That's because you're one of them.
>it w-w-as m-most l-likely
So if you don't know, then fuck off.
Kaworufags in general are happy and content, which ties in because they don't care for much other than Kawoshin, while the rest of the non-kaworufag group cares about the whole shebang. Get where I'm going?
These groups don't mix, and Kaworufags WILL stir up shit when 90% of the thread aren't part of their special grouping and is trying to discuss EVA, and the new movies get criticized harsh.
Kaworufags see an attack, they lash back INSTEAD of acting like rational people and criticizing/opining.
>Nobody actually likes Kaworu/Karl outside of Kawoshin, you know
Tell that to Anno and the rest of Japan.
I'm not saying tumblr didn't come here or anything, just that calling it specifically "tumblr friendly" is wrong, as it's more about appealing to the masses in general.
>I'm going to stop replying to you now.
Shippers are going to ship whether there's any basis to it or not, you should know that. I'd consider 3.0 to be less gay than Episode 24 was anyway.
If only you apparently being happy didn't lead to so much shitposting.
Except it's not just them your release your retarded fan rage on(which by the way, is incredibly childish, "return in kind", kid?). You just have an automatic dislike for everything not gay.
>Hell, shipping doesn't even have anything to do with the movie itself
What movie did you watch? The one I watched last didn't have shit for character or plot besides Kawoshin shipping. Shipping is the single most important thing in the franchise right now, above anything else.
Waifufags don't care about any that. As long as their self-insert gets to slip his dick into her vagoo then it's a "win" for them regardless of how many rape metaphors Anno decides to throw in.
>Implying Shinji gives two shits about her
Who was Shinji tanged by in Instrumentality? Oh yeah, fucking Kaworu.
Asuka might have a chance if she dyes her hair white and her eyes red.
So why did she stroke him again
Generals are shitty right now because we don't have much to discuss but they'll be great for 4.0
I bet if Kaworu was real, he'd think you are all a bunch of faggots.
The movie I watched just did the whole Dance Like You Want To Win thing, but with a piano and horses. There wasn't really any romance in there anywhere.
>Reifags were the ones who to took it to the next level and the Kaworufags responded in kind. All this escalation led to the pile of shit we're all in today.
Kaworufag, stop it. I was there, and I saw the shitflinging start.
I've even seen a bunch of threads recently with Kaworufags baiting since the OP.
Kaworufags were always like this, you can blame tumblr if you want, but they've always been about shipping and shitposting.
She finally understood him and decided to do something nice for once.
>Asuka and Kaworu shipping
>Anons pretending to like Kaworu samefagging at the speed of light
>rows and rows of b8
Jesus christ, I'm suddenly glad I arrived at this thread late.
>shipping doesn't even have anything to do with the movie itself
90% of the film's "substance" is shipping.
There won't be much to discuss other then Asuka's third victory.
Did she come to understand him in the two seconds they were all Tang
Shinji was tanged by his mom's tits when he was asked what he really desired. Not Kaworu.
Nope. Too busy fucking Shinji Ikari.
It was more than two seconds.
They could have been in it for some time, given that concepts of time and space are meaningless in Tang.
But yeah, she probably did, just like Shinji kind of came to understand her.
He was strangling her so she thought she could do something in attempt to save her own ass.
I'm looking forward to it.
Kaworufags are an absolute atrocity.
I hope a better Eva thread comes along later tonight.
You get tanged by the person you love: Kaworu
But Shinji's desire was to return to his mother.
That doesn't negate Shinji loved Kaworu, only that Shinji had major mother issues.
One thing you're not considering:
The nature of Rebuild. Kaworufags might be baited if you criticize the character, since Kaworufags generally don't see Kaworu as shallow or lacking in character.
Since there's a lot of negativity surrounding 3.0, criticizing 3.0 also involves criticizing Kaworu at times, for instance that he's got more screentime but remains shallow, that's one I've seen.
The problem is lack of self-insight for Kaworufags, I've seen about 1-2 kaworufags total that were more down to earth when discussing Evangelion, that could agree that things were lacking and it was just pandering.
Most Kaworufags, probably wont accept that their favourite is shallow however, since that'd be admitting that they're just in it for kawoshin or pretty stuffs.
When tumblr arrived, who we know at least as a mindless horde of idiots without standards, things were bound to get bad.
Your logic is flawed and I feel sorry for you
Curse of EVA
>lol no ur wrong
Nice counterpoint to my argument.
>being right about anything
The movie shipped harder than entire freighter fleets. You don't have to be dense or a be a contrarian, you're helping nothing and just making yourself look stupid.
When there's more scenes devoted to character tender moments than development or introspection, or even plot, then it's shippy. To make matters worse, 3.0's plot is like a U-turn at lightspeed right into Kaworu-shippy town.
It couldn't get more obvious, so if you're saying "nah" to be a contrarian or devil's advocate, do yourself a favor and quit it.
She's not really 28. Otherwise we'd have this.
>Dance Like You Want To Win thing, but with a piano and horses.
uh-huh. Nothing out of order here? Two people alone, playing piano, stargazing, while the rest of the characters are absolutely worthless garbage beyond their cute/cool appeal....
I dunno, some kind of tragic sacrifice "for you" at the end?
I mean they were literally making sweet music together, holding hands and shit.
It was the biggest shipper-feature I have ever seen.
>romantically loving Shinji
>"t-they're clearly romantically involved with each other"
Kaworu/Shinji shippers' delusional tears are delicious.
My dick now has its own AT-Field and will be attacking Tokyo-3
But yeah, an older and mature Asuka would have been some hot stuff.
The whole thing is a delusion.
They are never showed to be romantically involved butt here's plenty of evidence for it present in symbolism and what not. Tone, presentation, they could just as well be married.
They aren't selling a "romance" per se, they are selling the most powerful ship of all:
Eternal, multi-dimensional love that transcends time and space.
If there was actual romance, it'd be dirty.
Have some more.
Jesus fuck Anno, you could've done this instead of give her an eyepatch.
I doubt the curse of Eva is anything significant anyways.
I don't see it as shippy as there's no romance. 2 characters being on screen for a while isn't shipping, that's just what happens. Whether you like what's happening or not is another matter. If the characters were being shipped in the movie itself then it would be shippy, but outside of that it's whatever you put into it.
Did they ever actually hold hands? I don't remember. Regardless, I'd consider 3.0 much less gay than Episode 24, where they both say that they love each other.
No, we absolutely should not do generals for 4.0.
3.0 generals started out nice but then everything went to shit because of tumblr/kaworu/BR or whatever.
4.0 generals is going to start out shit and end even shittier unless Anno pulls off some sort of miracle.
Isn't he that neckbeard who draws shitty apple comics on deviantart?
>You get tanged by the person you love: Kaworu
And Shinji wasn't tanged by him. He was tanged by his mother.
Assuming Maya has sexual feelings towards Ritsuko or feelings of love, but note that the message Ritsuko types is not "I WANT YOU", "I DESIRE YOU", "I LOVE YOU", or any variation thereof but "I NEED YOU".
Maya needs to be needed. Knowing that they're needed breaks down their barriers. It isn't even really true love that we're seeing in the tangification scenes- it's the fulfillment of a base desire. Hyuga transmigration is by contrast explicitly sexual, but is it romantic? Would Eva really characterize Hyuga's sexual lust for an unattainable woman as true love? The same question is easily asked of Fuyutsuki. Yui isn't even a woman to him, she's an ideal. His youth, maybe.
Shinji's desire is his mother here. The Rei/Kaworu/Yui giant is just a big stand in for his mummy issues. Just looks at how motherly and gently Kaworu coaxed him. Using it for shipping is odd as hell.
There's more in that set
Were you expecting something different?
1.0 is episodes 1-6
2.0 is episodes 7-22
3.0 is episodes 23-24
The same thing happens, just in different scenerios with slight different situations, but all the major plot points occur in the same way.
If you're angry that 24 basically got its own movie, then you need to realize Rebuild centers around Shinji and 24 was Shinji's most important episode.
>I don't see it as shippy as there's no romance
You just made the argument that shipping required no such thing.
I'm not even a kawoshinfag but you've gotta admit that every canon statement from Anno and the seiyuus + the shit they translated last year pointed to that.
The image-changing bug.
Also new thread where
>Eternal, multi-dimensional love that transcends time and space.
You had me going for a second there.
3/10 apply yourself
>I don't remember. Regardless, I'd consider 3.0 much less gay than Episode 24, where they both say that they love each other.
It's not about how gay it is, things can be shippy even if it's not gay.
You just don't know what you're talking about and you can't remember a darned thing about the movie.
ARK please remove yourself.
No, no one cares about Rei. No one cares about you, or your videos. Please, leave.
Maya humps Ritsu's knee and the screenplay for her lines is covered in little hearts.
Well ain't that some shit. Thanks moot.
The curse is he has to keep them 14 to sell merch and he wants to sell that fucking merch.
When the fujoshits leave.
Just passing through, have some best girl.
>Were you expecting something different?
Everyone was expecting something different.
And I forgot my image. Can't win today.
Are you jew?
Why don't you have a girl with some real personality.
You'll find that the issue is how it went about it, it knocked off the rest to feature a ship.
Every single episode is important to Shinji, and you know just as well as I that 3.0 did episode 24 far worse.
The only thing it enhanced was a ship, and this is kind of Kaworufag denial is disgusting.
If there's romance in the movie, then that would make for a "shipping" movie. Outside of that, it's whatever a shipper wants to make of it. That's all.
Since this is concerning kawoshin shipping, how gay it is does matter.
>you can't remember a darned thing about the movie.
I just asked a simple question, anon. I don't claim to know or remember everything.
This thread seems to have devolved into shit flinging about Kaworufags, but in case anyone is interested in a zip of all the screencaps of Rei in 2.22, I've just finished going through 2.22 again to see if I could catch any additional Rei moments I missed. I did, and now I have the complete collection to share.
I tried putting the link here but they think it's spam, so it's in the image.
270 MB, 160 screens
>And Asukafags are just going around pretending to be Kaworufags to troll.Nobody actually likes Kaworu/Karl outside of Kawoshin, you know.
How little you know.
>what is: curse of the eva
Protip: a pedo paradise
Ah, that explains it.
>being more important than anyone to Shinji in NGE
I like how he's implying this hard when everyone Shinji cared for were just as important as the other.
His friends and family were the people who even said he wanted to protect before returning to Earth in EoE.
I don't recall seeing Kaworu in that photo of all of them either.
NO ONE CARES ABOUT REI !!!11!1!!!!!!!!!1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Shit like this is why Kaworufags get on people's nerves.
You think it's all right, and even justifiable even, that Kaworu, a minor character gets a huge feature in a movie when there was only one episode for it.
This means we miss all the context, and absolutely everything that made episode 24 work in the first place, and what's worse, you don't get anything new.
Everything in Evangelion is important, that's why it is there. Episode 24 isn't Shinji's most important episode, it's a climax that makes part of a whole, and at that, a climax that made more sense than when it was shorter than longer.
3.0 exists not to actually make a better character out of Shinji or provide sense, it's to put Kaworu in a victim's role so to speak, while shipping hard.
Your entire post is nothing but tripe.
Have a new thread:
well, where should I upload it that actually works?
youtube doesn't work.
>Also new thread where
A little later.
No point now if that Asukafag shitposting will just spam with more Kaworu.
>Since this is concerning kawoshin shipping, how gay it is does matter.
Confirmed for not knowing Kawoshin. Some don't even think Kaworu is gay but still ship.
Get the fuck out.
It's fujoshit shitposting, don't bring Asukafags into this hot mess.
>Some don't even think Kaworu is gay but still ship.
If you're shipping a guy with a guy but don't think the guy is gay, then you're fucking retarded, even for a shipper.
>If there's romance in the movie, then that would make for a "shipping" movie.
Shippers don't need actual romance, they need scenarios, they need designs and so on. This is what 3.0 provide. It goes with the tropes of anime romance, such as blushing/handholding as well, and add in the symbolism such as the marriage tree, and roaming horses, and so on.
Seductive looks, Kaworu's solo focus on Shinji, Shinji growing closer to Kaworu, and there you go:
The most shipping movie ever produced.
>He was tanged by his mother
That doesn't make any sense.
Kaworu is shown the represent the words 'I love you' in Shinji's heart. Shinji loves Kaworu whether you like it or not.
Getting 'tanged' happens when a Rei turns into the one you care about most and brings you into instrumentality. Rei turned into Kaworu, who then stuck the spear into Unit 01's core. In the EoE script, Kaworu was described to have brought Shinji 'complete ecstasy'.
Once in Instrumentality, his more Oedipus-Freudian desires are shown.
You need to stop disregarding that Eva is a giant shitfest of concepts popularized by Freud.
The Bisexuality theory and Ideal self theory contribute heavily to Kaworu's role in the story.
>Some don't even think Kaworu is gay but still ship.
Are you new to anime fans?
That's the entire point of shipping it; thinking Kaworu and Shinji are gay for each other, and only 3D female pigs are stupid enough to believe that.
Fortunately they're more or less a vocal minority around this fanbase. I don't run into them often.
It's pretty fucking obvious that they're gay for each other.
There needs to be an /eva/ containment board like /mlp/
I've been coming from a different definition of shipping, then. If what you consider makes it a shipping movie is just a scenario, then sure, I concede that you're right.
>If you're shipping a guy with a guy but don't think the guy is gay, then you're fucking retarded, even for a shipper.
Yes, this is exactly how retarded this is. Try visiting or learning about kawoshin before you post about it. Go get some opinions. Right now you're doing nothing more than shitposting and prolonging a ded thred.
You must be. Let me explain:
Kaworu according to some Kaworufag, has no sex. So he can't be gay, his love is thusly 100% pure - purity - sound familiar? Anime fans are high consumerists of purity. To which they twist into lewd things.
So for some, I said not all, this is the way to go.
He was talking to Kaworu and Rei in that scene, dipshit.
Hence why Rei 2's face was covered.
Shinji, maybe, but Kaworu? No.
>I've been coming from a different definition of shipping, then. If what you consider makes it a shipping movie is just a scenario, then sure, I concede that you're right.
Your definition is fucked, please update.
Go here >>>/c/2154600
And that barely has anything to do with that part of my post or the rest of my post regarding that guy's post in anon's pic.
>He was talking to Kaworu and Rei in that scene, dipshit.
lel, no. Kaworu doesn't even feature in the last two episodes, because originally, the nigger was fucking dead and dead for good.
Kaworu isn't gay for Shinji. He just wants to be friends with him.
Shinji is gay for Kaworu, and wants to do lewd things with him.
I see what kind of guy you are. Kaworu and Shinji could fuck in front of you and you'd still say that shit is platonic and scream no homo to the stars
True. Kaworu originally was just another Angel and a symbol of what Shinji wished he was (open, loving, truthful, and be able to love unconditionally) taught him that and then he was gone. He gave Shinji what his heart needed to learn then could move on to dealing with Misato, Asuka and everyone else.
It's after the fact that Anno retconned Kaworu actually being Adam in the director's cuts and eventually making him as important to the plot/story as he is now.
Anno is biased towards him now, if you can't tell.
You need to rewatch Eva, because your faggotry is showing.
That scene was from EoE, when Shinji was talking to Kaworu and Rei.
Kaworu took up the first 7 minutes of episode 25, see pic related.
Whether Kaworu was dead or not doesn't change the fact Shinji would've never gotten over him.
"Neon" is Greek for "new", "genesis" is Greek for "beginning", and "evangelion" is Greek for "horseshit".
But they aren't fucking and Kaworu doesn't want to fuck Shinji, so your post is invalid.
I come from the belief that shipping is just pairing one character up with another. Everything else can just be manufactured by the fandom. You don't need any excuse in the actual work for your ship since shipperfags are going to make one up on their own.
I don't care about the shippers themselves, nor do I usually talk about them anyway. Clearly you just think of the subject differently.
You can't ship Kawoshin because it's actually canon. You can either support it or deny it.
Is English your first language? The way you mix idioms and the awkwardness of your posts suggests not.
EoE != episode 25&26.
This guy gets it: >>100438116
Basically, Rei first was Adam, which was the giant in the basement. It gets retconned to that giant being Lilith some times after, and they add in changes in the directors cuts so it'll fit better with EoE.
So for episode 25&26, the original ending, Kaworu wasn't there at all because he was dead. In EoE with the retcons however, Kaworu was present.
So fuck yer ship kid.
>I come from the belief that shipping is just pairing one character up with another.
Well, you're right but you are confused what "pairing up" means. Kaworu and Shinji are thoroughly paired up in 3.0.
Do you honestly think they would fuck 2 minutes after meeting each other? This is Japan, and it wouldn't serve the story. The point was for Shinji to experience romantic love and know that it exists, poor kid never received love from his father... As Kaworu, he could see Shinji's heart with his angel mojo and fell in love. How hard is that to believe?
Death and Rebirth material has Kaworu listed as love interest.
Kaworu was in the first 7 minutes of the original episode 25 that aired on TV.
>Clearly you just think of the subject differently.
3.0 panders to shippers, Kawoshin shippers in specific.
You know I have that episode right here and that's not true.
Kaworu isn't there in-character for a single moment. He's dead.
There is Shinji being guilted for his death for a whole 2-3 seconds where the rest is interspersed with a recap.
At max, you could say he's part of the subject for 3 minutes, and that's not true either.
Sorry, he was dead and gone.
And so even if they knew each other for quite a while that suddenly means they'd still fuck each other?
Even when Kaworu's sexuality is highly ambiguous?
Not that guy, but honestly, why wouldn't Kaworu's "love" for Shinji be platonic and sympathetic when we already know he lacks total understanding of human emotions?
Why is Studio Khara such a big Kawoshinfag?
I may just be tired.
> Kaworu and Shinji are thoroughly paired up in 3.0.
I would consider "pairing up" as there being something romantic between them, or things moving forward in such a way to contribute to them becoming a couple at some point. I didn't see that in the movie. Maybe you did, but that's on you.
A bit late, but I came to tell you you're wrong. Neon is ancient, while neo is modern, but they both mean the same thing, "new".
>i would consider "pairing up" as there being something romantic between them
That's wrong. End of story, you were wrong. You can stop posting now.
I just checked and he doesn't appear even once.
There's a flash, as in a flashback of what seems to be his dead head dropping down into the LCL.
All of the other real characters are there to be elaborated on, the exception is Kaworu.
Minor characters don't get entry-pass, and he's not at the end to congratulate Shinji since he's dead.
Rei is there, and she's the other "flavor" of Angel - who survived to start instrumentality.
Kaworu on the other hand, he was dead originally.
I lurk Reifag threads because they are usually more calm and civil. Even when they are getting trolled hard.
It's nicer over there
That's what I was proving.
You said Kaworu as entirely forgottenin 25+26, and I said he was clearly referenced in 25 for the beginning of the episode. Glad you can admit it.
Again, just because Kaworu is dead doesn't mean his impact on Shinji suddenly disappears as well, Shinji clearly states in episode 25 that Kaworu was his 好きな人. The ONLY character in the series he ever loved.
I think he knows more about humans than we think he does. He's just got no notion of personal space, he's awkward, he talks weird, etc.
He said I love you, he used it twice in NGE and EOE, the verb suki. I'm sorry, but it's there.
Sorry, I mixed things up again.
That's what I would consider to be needed for 2 people to be paired up, but shipping doesn't require anything.
The problem here is that I don't see them as being paired up in the movie itself, so while shippers may ship them, that's just them doing their thing.
>You said Kaworu as entirely forgottenin 25+26,
Haha. Show me where. Just cite it.
You can't, because I never said it.
I said he didn't feature because he was dead. So I'm right.
Look kaworufag, it's sad you only care about Evangelion for the ship, and this is the exact problem with Kaworufag shitposters in EVA threads:
Nobody EVER said he was entirely forgotten in 25+26. You can ctrl+f this thread and not find it.
They said the truth, which was that he was dead, and wasn't in the episodes because of that. He's only present as in he's being mentioned through a recap, which after that, does not mention him again.
So you're making a fuzz out of nothing, and trying to prove something unnecessary, just because "muh kawoshin". You proved yourself wrong. He's not in the final image since he's dead, like the rest told you.
>That's what I would consider
Again, that'd be wrong.
Then what do you consider to be "paired up?" Because just having two characters on the screen at the same time for a while isn't being paired up.
You might have memory loss.
They showed a complete montage of all his scenes and referenced by Shinji and Rei, therefore he was featured in episode 25.
Through context, interaction and in EVA symbolism, yes.
Well then, at this point it's more you shipping them yourself than anything else.
>Montage of previous scenes means being featured
>Because just having two characters on the screen at the same time for a while isn't being paired up
Correct. Now you fill in the details:
Where are they? What are they doing? What are they saying?
In 3.0 all of those conforms to the expectations of shippers. This includes the symbolism that relates directly to marriage, the kindred soul imagery in both lyrics and visuals, as well as the growing bond and relationship they share, as well as Kaworu's affection for Shinji and eventually, Shinji's as well.
Then you add tragedy for maximum effect.
On the whole, you can also see that the entire plot is set up, unrealistically even, to move Shinji towards Kaworu in a brief period of time, which also add to it.
It's a recap. He doesn't feature.
You realize that doesn't say:
"Kaworu as entirely forgottenin 25+26,"
as you claimed right?
He doesn't feature. He's dead. His character isn't there as anything but a memory, and that my friend, means your argument should have ended a long time ago.
Delusional piece of shit.
So what if I do?
Point is, the context and interaction is what matters, not just that they're on-screen.
Which is shipping in 3.0, and do you get off on being wrong but still arguing?
But that's just adding scenery, not pairing them up. It can give shippers context for their ship, but that's it.
I conceded a while ago, anon. This is about understanding, not who's right or wrong.
Kaworu wasn't there because he was dead. He was retconned into the monster he is today.
Deal /w it.
Its sad you think I only care about Eva for this ship.
I started Evangelion without even knowing Kaworu existed, so I was able to react and judge characters without any prior bias.
Asuka became my favorite character, I enjoyed Rei and Misato as well. I really related to Shinji and his struggles with depression, I wanted him to find happiness. Watching episode 24 bumped Asuka down to second place, Kaworu became memorable for me not because of his screentime but his role as the hope that anyone can find happiness and love. If someone like Kaworu can see the good in Shinji, then anyone can.
Just because Kaworu isn't a major character doesn't mean he isn't important. He represents something very important to Shinji and audience members who were dealing with depression, and your hate filled arguments will never change that.
Yes, whatever Kaworufag.
You were wrong and nobody cares about the damage control you're doing. Fuck off.
>But that's just adding scenery, not pairing them up.
No, it's what pairs them up.
Consider the following: Two characters. Add the scene of a love hotel or a bed.
What's the difference between the same two characters on two different rows on a bus?
The scene implies something, and adds context. This is what pairing/shipping is...
It's also about what they do. Holding hands and blushing, that's one thing. Shipping in this movie (and others) is about giving leeway to shippers imagination, and it's done with extreme efficiency in 3.0.
Funny Kaworu defense there. I do think you just care for the ship, since even in your defense your argumentation relies on there being an importance from a romantic/love perspective.
Kaworu is important, now more than ever. You'll never hear me deny that, but it's also important for you to accept that his importance has grown forcibly over the years, yet not progressing as a character.
A lot of people saw good in Shinji in Evangelion, Toji. But most ignore him, don't they? He saw good in Shinji, and he was human, but screw poor Toji right?
There's no denying it at this stage, Kaworufag. It really is about the ship, since that is all they're providing and contenting an entire fanbase with.
Well, not that anon but I'm not gonna try to judge you or claim you're lying or not. Kaworu in NGE really wasn't that bad after all.
>very important to Shinji and audience members
is where you're wrong.
Sorry, but a majority of the audience doesn't care about Kaworu for that. The only reason they care is because they get a kick out of making Kawoshin rape doujins.
The people saying Kaworu only exists to everyone inside of a silly shipping really does have truth to it.
verb: feature; 3rd person present: features; past tense: featured; past participle: featured; gerund or present participle: featuring
have as a prominent attribute or aspect.
"the hotel features a large lounge, a sauna, and a coin-operated solarium"
synonyms: present, promote, make a feature of, give prominence to, focus attention on, spotlight, highlight
A montage can feature a character. The beginning of episode 25 featured Kaworu, dead or not is irrelevant.
>A montage can feature a character. The beginning of episode 25 featured Kaworu, dead or not is irrelevant.
Yeah, unless that was what the post was saying, in order to explain why Kaworu wasn't there. Check mate faggot.
I'm sure what people know what "feature" means. The character can't feature itself if it's dead and not present, flashbacks are not features, they are re-runs of when they featured. It doesn't make a feature of Kaworu, it makes a feature out of Shinji and everything he knows.
Even contextually you're wrong, because the discussion was about whether or not he was in the episodes or not, such as why he isn't present in the photo of everyone.
This is also all wrong since the photo was in 26 and not 25 anyway, making your point irrelevant.
