would it be awkward to watch EVA with my mom or dad?
I bet they'd not notice Shinji rubbing one out at first. Fuck I didn't.
Why not? I watch hentai with my parents.
Does your dad reach across and finish you off when you're feeling lazy?
Comfort Sex eluded me for nearly a decade. Don't feel bad.
Sometimes when he's in the mood.
It would with my parents for sure but then they just don't really get the appeal of anime in general. I don't think they'd like all the violence I'd probably have to get them hooked on anime like mushi-shi first or something.
Fun for the whole family.
I mean it was for Shinji.
i watched it with my dad and he wouldn't stop constantly commenting on how "kawaii" rei was. i haven't been able to respect him since
YOUR DAD HAS SUPERIOR TASTE AND YOURS IS SHIT
Who doesnt love her? Shes the perfect women
Smart, sexy and submissive
i was gonna watch the series with my mom since it seemed a lot of the themes focused on mothers.
whi is ther shit on his pits??
Would they even be open to the idea? I can't even imagine trying to get my parents to sit down and watch a cartoon with me
clearly charcoal, he's a minor after all.
Stop posting, Zelda.
Trying some funky moves with Asuka but she couldn't hold it in.
Why would you show them this one?
It's not that good.
I showed it to my cousin.
All he did was say it was pleb teir and "not that great".
I wanted to strangle him.
>being this edgy
its a classic for a reason
I want to blog and cry with you /a/
But its not
Its really noy
has anyone watched this with their mom?
Then name one other anime before it was created that hit on all those themes without talking down to you first?
There's a reason why it's considered a benchmark.
Well done anon.
who watches anime with their mom, anyway? not that i have a problem with it, but i believe freud-san might want to have a word with you
I watched some of the earlier episodes dubbed on german TV when she was sitting in front of the PC. Please don't hate me
Unfortunately, it seems like your dad has a case of chronic shit taste.
Consult your doctor to see if there's any way he can remove the shit taste.
for the lulz because it would be really funny
>not spending time with your poor lonely mother by watching mushi-shi and wolf children with her
Do you even care anon
Nah, but I got my dad to watch Big O and he liked it and he hasnt liked an anime since speed Racer.
>Name an anime with shitty animation, shitty all over plot with no significant meaning other than the main character screaming and feeling abandoned while being an undecisive cunt
hows your dad doing?
I don't really know you're parents, so I couldn't say. My parents have a complete hatred of anime and will never watch anything anime. Not even Miyazaki films.
my mom watched madoka and we took her to a rebellion screening
>can't do it.
That's what I thought.
To be fair he said before EVA came out, since probably a good 30% of anime released afterwards borrows heavily from it's themes. It's probably the most influential anime there is other than a bunch of old ass super robot shows.
>shitty all over plot with no significant meaning other than the main character screaming and feeling abandoned while being an undecisive cunt
Oh look. It's one of those faggots that hates Shinji because he's retarded and doesn't understand his character.
Are you one of the girls mentioned in the commentary?
sounds like shinji
Just this year, I found out my dad liked Astro-boy as a kid.
surprised he doesn't identify with the main character.
>Fapping to Saigodo EVA doujins
My mom watched a couple episodes because she thought it looked interesting over my shoulder.
but she used to be an animator, so I think she was just admiring the art and wasn't paying attention to the art
lol my dad loved the shit out of speed racer
>I hate Eva-threads but why do I keep coming back?
>You have nothing else.
>Is it ok for me to be here?
Your dad just understands a woman has her place, if it was Asuka she would bitch everyday.
>fapping to a horribly low quality scan of the Sailor Scouts masturbating to a porno of Evangelion you stumbled upon on Newgrounds
>I think she was just admiring the art and wasn't paying attention to the art
I meant story for the second one there, not sure how i managed that
My dad showed me his year book when he was in 4th grade, he wore a Sweater with Speed on it.
>>Mfw my dad was a weeaboo before there were weeaboos.
Did you notice the way he's lifting her up and choking her is the same way the eva does it during the fight?
>Thinking Shinji was actually a deep character
AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, holy shit this place is filled with plebs of this degree, no wonder /a/ is considered the pinnacle of shit here.
Pro tip: its because of people like you
If anything, Shinji was a bitch
The only reason /a/ loves this show is so they sit around in the neckbeard circles talking about how intellectual they and their anime is.
Shinji is the WORST character in that anime, nothing about him is remotely deep
>trying this hard
weeaboos have been around for basically as long as japan has had contextualize with the west, it's pretty amazing
So you're just b8ing? Neat.
Not my parents, but back in HS my english teacher caught me drawing Rei, and then showed me a poster of her she had on the back of the classroom. Turns out she even saw EoE before I did.
I'm curious, do you really think you're going to change the general opinion of a nearly twenty year old show just by shitposting? How do you see your endgame here?
>he hasn't seen eva
it's "classic" because most people watched it as teenager and can't review it objectively
One. Just name one.
My endgame is shitting all over fags like you and guess what ding ding motherfucker mission accomplished.
You got owned hard, deal with it.
Really just depends how cool your parents are, my mom watched Kill la Kill with me over Christmas.
You misspelled "you're".
>Kill la Kill
Step it up senpai, I watched all seasons of School Rumble plus OVAs with my parents.
Wait, so Shinji and Asuka /actually/ fucked and that wasn't just anon specula?
>You can [not] name one
holy shit your mad lol
It is speculation.
specula as fuck
When did it happen according to the theory??
In EoE after instrumentality begins there's an exchange between Shinji and Asuka and it's evident they're in bed naked. Some speculate it's a flashback other that it is in Shinji's mind.
This bit here.
It was always an eternal question of: "Is this in Shinji's mind, or did they actually fuck? And if so, why?" It would put some more context on kimochi warui from Asuka at the end of EoE.
Can you give me the exact time, I dont remember this one bit
it was all during tang time, it's not real
try reading the filename sherlock
1 hour and 30 seconds in.
Another thing that went over my head was all the parallel imagery. I saw a picture of Sachiel reaching for Unit 01(when it grabs it by the head) side-by-side Misato reaching for Shinji's head when she asks him if he's finicky. It's great how there so much shit to see if you actually look.
Oh shit not this again, what is /a/ stance on the translation. What does it mean, "you disgust me"? or something like that
In the movie? I'm not sure, a bit past the halfway mark I think. Within universe? I don't subscribe to the theory but I guess it would have been after Kaji's death, when Asuka would have needed some comfort and was spiraling down and Misato wouldn't have been in position of offering adult supervision. But that's a guess.
>eva sux, eye troll u
>u mad m80
lmao your so fuckin mad
When do you expect 4.0 will come out?
I think Anno will make the whole thing then burn it and release 3.0 again except the whole thing takes place under the tang ocean.
Consensus is some sort of disgust. Whether it's physical sickness(morning sickness from them fucking), or just condescending tone
well, we're here almost 20 years later and we dont really know.
>morning sickness from them fucking
anon maybe you should do a sex ed course
I think it directly translates as "I feel bad" but can be taken to mean a number of different things. "How disgusting" could be correct too. I don't think there's a definitive answer
2015 would be a good year for it, because it's when the story begins and it'd go well with that "repetition" thing.
I watched some SZS with my mom and she thought it was hilarious. I just avoided the episodes too steeped in NEET culture or fanservice.
yeah ok i see what you mean, but how much time passed between post-kaji boning and EoE taking place?
>well, we're here almost 20 years later and we dont really know.
Well, it's not a scene that you're going to be able to find 'the' answer for, just interpretations. I mean, the whole series is like that, to a point, but this especially
you being so kawaii right now.
Dat plate. Though the 'legs' on the bottom should twitch on occasion, that would be creepy
Okay /a/ in the EoE Misato basicly said she would fuck him when he returned. Since that everyone who died can return if they want and have enough willpower Misato should be able to get back
So /a/, will Shinji finally get some ass?
he already got asukas and he realized he's not into girls anymore
I doubt Shinji would hold her up to a promise he know was made in desperation, he is Shinji after all.
Misato didn't die from being tanged though. She exploded before that
>implying she didn't just say that so SHINJI GET IN DA ROBIT
>implying she doesn't think of him like he's some lost puppy
>implying she would fuck a lost puppy
repition? Are you shitting me?
Ok so I'm watching this show and....
Am I the only one who sees the references to satanism? I can't be the only one right?
thanks... am I as cute as your mad?
I remember a guy who thought that didn't matter and belived even dinosaurs could come back if they wanted.
Watched it with my mom loooong ago (12 years?). She was disappointed and thought there would be a little more sense behind the Angel related stuff.
Also Shinji being a faggot the whole time unnerved her more then anything else and she wished humanity good luck with him and Asuka being the next Adam and Eve after EoE.
She loved TTGL though.
it was a callback to Kaji also making a promise they knew was a lie before their death
So THAT's what 4.0's about I fucking wish. Sounds so much better than what we'll get
>not knowing about anno's declarations
I'm definitely not a satanist. I just sorta noticed the references
we see Rei above her tattered clothing with tang around. I guess its a timed thing, die within X of 3rd Impact
the freshly dead are shown being tanged on multiple occasion
Could you enlighten me?
I think this proves the "Mari is queen Victoria reborn" theory
I would say even more so.
You have transcended kawaii,
and have become kawaii desu ne
I watched it with my older sister ep 25 and 26 were pretty awkward. It was pre EoE, wish i would've watched it with her.
Ok so whats with this scene?
retardation and regrets of a father
>yfw shinji was also a clone
And if you see the end of the manga version, it should be clearer to you. Different timelines are canon.
>yfw shinji was cloned in 3.0
>he's still in unit 01 in the wundar
That'd be pretty sweet.
>shinji was also a clone
I've thought about that myself.
It would make sense.
That could be why his father is so detached from him because he is a clone of himself.
Perhaps Gendo has trouble really looking at how he use to be. It adds another dimension to the show that I had never really considered.
The thing is though, it could go either way.
On one hand it's Instrumentality and that shit is bonkers, anything could happen in it.
On the other hand, we don't know the amount of time between each episode, so it is likely that they fucked after Kajis death and before her attempted suicide.
>reiq and shinjiq live happily together as clones
>real shinji and asuka live happily together
>they both go on double dates and do stuff together
So no real Shinji and no real Rei and barely no Asuka for a full movie? Great way to phase out those pesky little characters getting in the way of a franchise. I can almost believe it.
I hear ya, anon.
I hear ya.
>shinji with rei breasts
>If that was 4.0
Jeez, man. If only ;__;
>mfw your dad is a moefag
imagine fucking all of those reis
i'd last 30 seconds with one, blow my load, then cry while they all stair with their dead eyes
i feel wrong about this, but i want a rei stairway to heaven amv now
And 14. This is why Anno hates us
if we werent explicitly told she was 14, she would seem a lot older.
I hope Komm Susser Tod plays again in 4.0.
Actually going to do this after my mother finishes watching the anime she's on right now.
I've never understood why Evafags want to dump this series on everyone they lay eyes on. Every Evafag and their mother describes this as a deconstruction of mecha. Why would you want to start a newbie on something that requires appreciation and understanding of mecha tropes?
>implying eva are mecha
Everybody should have the chance to enjoy art, even if they are finally not able to do so.
Eva must be the only Mecha you've ever seen.
eva is the one thing everyone should experience in their lives
a familiarity with genre certain allows the viewer to appreciate the subversions, but I would argue that it is in no way required to understand and appreciate the series narrative or ultimate messages
Give me two weeks and I'll get on it.
Not everyone sees it as a deconstruction of mecha, just a damn good show. Though it does have deconstructivist tendencies (which is an entirely different thing). But I do agree people shouldn't push eva on others, it does a disservice to the show since you have to be wired a certain way to enjoy it.
The ending song for 3.0 seems to predict what we'll get in 4.0.
>everybody finds love in the end
Other than the fap part, it shouldn't really be, unless your parents are closed-minded rednecks or you have a bad relationship with them just like every character in the series
Thanks, Anon :)
Oh sorry Anon I didn't want to tease you, I'll just take my scissors and cut my anus just as you have.
End of Evangelion is literally the best animay to watch with your parents and/or grandparents.
Make sure your little niece is there as well
What the fuck do you think OP?
Also, why is Rei so fucking great?
Epic, simply epic.
N-no OCD, I don't even need to reply to that, it's obvious how retarded it is.
3.0 Shinji has a soul, otherwise he couldn't pilot with Kaworu.
She's actually not even 14. At most, she's 11.
>yfw Gendo rused Kaworu to protect the real Shinji from all the homolust
Because your imagination shapes her and makes her fit perfectly in the idealized perfection that is your waifu, so that you can proxy fuck her regardless of the fact that she is, in fact, a soulless doll concocted by Anno with the exact purpose of showing how retarded and creepy a real-life equivalent of the common submissive kawaii fuckdoll would be, and how you should kill yourselves.
It's great that you put so much effort into your post, too bad that I'm not a waifufag and by "great", I was refering to the fact that she's an intriguing character.
Fucking armchair psychologists.
Good for you. Can't say the same about the rest
when my mom was 17 and i was a baby yeah
Damn, my memories of NGE are so blurry:
>His father abuses Rei?
>Synching with Asuka
>Mechas with fucking electrical plugs?
>Fighting geometrical shapes
>2001: The Space Odyssey
Time to rewatch I guess.
>not remembering NGE
I watched it like 8 years ago.
>Not putting your mom in an EVA so you can be together forever
Happy mother's day, mom! Now get in the fucking robot!
Get it rewatched m8.
>not having pic related for your okasan's phone number
Step up senpai
I screencaped that part.
The first and last picture are obvious symbolic sceenes which are either part of instrumentality or probably just a way Anno tells you about Shinji's mommy issues and the way Misato solves her issues by having sex. Both Shinji and Asuka commented on that by the way. Now there are 6 pictures inbetween which 4 of them are obvious flashbacks and 2 of them are possible flashbacks. Now go figure. For the slower ones, it's just Anno subtle way to tell you they had sex but can't show it any other way because they are both minors. So if he would ever be questioned about that, he can just say that it was just in their head.
I don't understand why it's cool to shit on Eva.
>B-but it was just in their head b-but on the other way it was clearly show that Rei had sex with Shinji.
>B-believe me p-please.
>I-i will not run away.
Deal with it, there was another segment right after proving my point.
The entire fucking thing's a dream sequence, why should part of it be actually real?
>Rei had sex with Shinji
In their head you mean.
They kind of merged -- not really fucking
Because parts of your "dream sequence" were actualy flashbacks.
I know, that part was an actual instrumentality aka the whole merging into one thing not an actual sex.
Rei probably thought of it as sex. Or "becoming one with Ikari" like she wanted.
Does Rei know what sex is?
Probably basic knowledge. She just didn't know why she had those feelings. Gendo was to busy with ending the world to explain that shit
>Rei probably thought of it as sex. Or "becoming one with Ikari" like she wanted.
You mean Adam/Lilith hybrid with memories of clone of mc's mother at that part?
Also Adam, he was mixed in there to.
I remember showing my mom the first few episodes of evangelion.
But then she asked me if Rei was Shinji's sister.
>Tfw no good answer to that question
Because it many people think that hating eva automatically means you're not a pleb.
And they'd rather insist it's not deep than admit that they had trouble understanding pivotal plot points.
Did she see the tit-grab scene?
Yes. She did.
>Tfw no good answer to that question
But we have the answer. Rei is yuis clone. The material for the cloning process was recovered after yui went missing in the EVA core
Wouldn't that be incredibly awkward?
It's never explicitly stated in the original series whether she's a full-blown clone or whether there's parts of Lilith mixed in, and how much of Yui's genetic material she has.
I don't think you understand.
This was my mom, and this was right after the tit-grabbing scene.
Exactly how eager do you think I was to explain Rei's origin?
>So wait, is that girl Shinji's sister or something?
You've got two answers to this question:
Which one is better?
>Wouldn't that be incredibly awkward?
I forgot the scene was there at the time I showed it. It was just kind of a "OH SHIT, WHAT HAVE I GOTTEN MYSELF INTO" moment.
So I didn't bother showing anything else after that.
Oh god that must have been awkward
she knows how it goes but not the emotional part of it
I'm almost disappointed this hasn't been posted yet.
>you will never own a Reiquarium
Truly top tier animation.
This epsiode was made when they had literally no budget.
You gotta give them credit, they didn't give up.
Rei is Shinji's artificially made half sister. Yes, she is a physical copy of Yui with a few altercations like hair and eye color but her actual DNA is mixed with Lilith's DNA so she can not be an actual legit clone of Yui.
Sure, they grew up very different lives and have very different relationships but at the end of the day they are kin. At least if you look at it my way.
>tfw you will never be an EVA pilot
I want to see how a normal person with no tragic backstory would manage that shit.
Depends on if they are dead or not.
>watched maison ikkoku/perfect blue with mom
>Watched akira/bebop with dad
>gunbuster with little sister
>starting eva with mom this week
Wish me luck...
Some would see it as a cool job, others would probably see it as a solider in a war.
Kind of like the pilots in Pacific Rim
>tfw no friends
No friends that watch anime anyway
Except for one guy who likes HOTD
And that's why I never saw Rei as a potential love interest for Shinji.
Sibling/friend is more like it.
I'm watching the series with my brother right now. He wouldn't stop saying 'wtf' for the first 10 or so episodes and now I'm nearing ep.16. This is going to be fun
>but her actual DNA is mixed with Lilith's DNA so she can not be an actual legit clone of Yui.
There is nothing confirmed or denied regarding Lilith's DNA being in Rei.
For all intents and purposes, she is the clone of Yui.
I have one friend who I mentioned Eva to and I will try to get him to watch it.
He's absolutely obsessed with One Piece at the moment though.
>first 10 episodes
But they didn't have any real 2deep4u trippy scenes in them. That stuff started around half way through.
>Not shipping the sibling together
You gay or something?
Whatever man. Look, if she was a clone, then her hair and her eye color would be the same as Yui. Did Yui have blue hair? Did she have red eyes? I doubt it.
Yeah, she has Liliths soul, but it's never specified if Gendo used some of Liliths DNA with Yuis.
And even then, Rei was only Rei, and not Lilith, because half of her soul was in Unit 00
Don't forget to use protection.
>Did Yui have blue hair? Did she have red eyes? I doubt it.
Everything regarding that is speculation, though.
For all we know, it's just a side effect of the cloning process. Other than stating that Rei has Yui's body and Lilith's soul, they don't really say anything.
I know, that's why I can't wait till 16 onwards, he hasn't seen anime before so this is all new to him
Whatever man. You believe what you believe and I'll believe in what I believe. We'll never know the real answer.
Yeah, well, that's just, like, your opinion, man.
I actually showed my mom the entirety of The End of Evangelion.
She really liked Komm Susser Tod and ended up downloading the song onto her laptop.
I plan on showing her 3.33 when the localized bluray is released.
So, how would Yui react to Reis existence? Unit 01 didn't accept her as a pilot after a while, so does she feel hostility towards her
Could be. Although I'm sure if they actually met in person, she wouldn't be all like, what the fuck is this shit?
Shinji's mom didn't really seem like a bitch, despite having a secret agenda and working for SEELE.
1) Do they know you watch anime
2) Would they want to watch anime
3) Depending on who your parents are, they might not want you watching it depending on your age
She would adopt her.
Probably a love hate thing seeing as she helps with Human Instrumentality but is still a somewhat clone of her.
Well, Yui isn't a bitch, but her sanity and general humanity is in question.
Why would she wait until Asuka died to leave the Bakelite? Why make your child watch your "death"?
>Oh look. It's one of those faggots that hates Shinji because he's retarded
... but anon... he is retarded.
I need some help. My mother wants to see NGE because she saw my wallscroll of Rei and Asuka. She likes Ghibli and has watched a couple of other anime movies.
Is showing her evangelion really a good idea?
I am not sure if I am willing to take the risk.
I'd really like to show it to my okasan because I love her but I'm afraid that apart from all the mother thematics and tones that's simply too much to ask of a newfag in her fifties
It is an absolutely horrible idea, and you shouldn't have let her see that wallscroll in the first place.
My mother only ever saw my Rei wallpaper on my laptop and she never made any comment on it.
what does you mom when that happens?
