You also wouldn't call it "uppity" either. Everyone surrounding her is a selfish crazy person. Each one being a different wet dream case for Freud. Each one could trigger the end of the world if they finally go off the deep end. And she's stuck there having to deal with all of them. Slapping some sense into the two pilots almost seems necessary.

>>100721844
Sadly the "submissive" thing is a flanderization caused by years and years of hatred towards the character for being so popular.

Rei is you know, mostly fair. Not very confrontative and she can take a lot of shit, but she's not really the doormat some people claim her to be.

Like in that scene she's trying to help Asuka, but gets rewarded to a slap - Rei knows better than to make things worse.
Turn the other cheek, like Jesus.

I actually don't mind Asuka but yeah it was that scene that cemented for me who the better person was. Like you said, she sees her down and tries to help her out, and Asuka just lashes out. Rei showed plenty of restraint afterwards.
>>
>>100722980

Character destruction.
Really neat, cunning and subtle way to strip Rei off her little but important traits so she becomes not this good.
Anno hated that Rei overshadowed NGE and everything elso so he works pretty much against her quite hard.

And that how 2.22 ended it was not good for Rei too.
It didn't let her die martyr's deaths and made her a damsel in distress.

And all this poka-poka stuff, all that fun she has in aquarium, that how she stopped the slap.

Real Rei, I mean NGE Ayanami Rei would refuse going to aquarium in the first place.
And stopping the slap, why? She wouldn't, It aint gonna kill her, right? And evven if it does they gonna revive her anyway, why bother to stop it then?
That's what real Rei would do.

Fuck your rebuild shit. It's not character development, it's not an empoverment, It's flattening that makes rei boring, more normal, more generic and less interesting, LESS SPECIAL.
That's not good.

>>100728546
Rei doesn't care about fun or well-being. She lives^W survives in messi dirty dark ugly room just because she can't fucking die anyway.
She doesn't want live
She doesn't want fun.
She just can't wait for the fucking end. She didn't go to party because it doesn't make difference. She never had friends or fun because she knew it won't make difference, her existance will be shor and futile. She will be kept alive and then used for instrumentality and disposed off.
She knew that nothing's gonna change it.

But she did make her move in EOE because it was the first time in her short, unnatural and unpleasant existence when she could make difference. She finally got the chance to do something that matters and even if she's dead in the end anyway she has done what she wanted to happen.

That's Rei.
Would you really be poka-poka and having fun if you were well aware that very soon you not just die, but go straight to fucking hell and nothing's gonna save you?
That's what Rei lived with. And that's why she was depressed.

Are you guys fucking high how can you think rei standing up for herself and opening up more to people is a bad thing? After all the shit she went through in the show why would you be so averse to positive
character development

"stripping rei of important traits" she didn't HAVE any important traits. she was written as a doll with no mind of her own, that's what made eoe so great when she refused gendo

It's not develpment, she gets downgraded from Rambo child soldier who's been through so much shit and knew too much to be happy into generic cute shy silly girl.

She died two times, she hated life, she knew what dire fate awaits her and suddenly she's all cheerful, shy girl that's having fun in aquarium.
That's character degradation.
>>
>>100729712
Not them, but you have some thing a bit wrong with your assessment of Rei. She wasn't a Rambo child soldier. You see her suicidal combat antics change from "it was ordered" to "it was for someone else" type of self sacrifice.

And she didn't hate life. The whole show, she was struggling with human interaction and what it means on a fundamental level.
>>
If i have Rei as my "waifu, what does that tell about me?
Just curious.
>>
>>100730172
No one can actually tell you that just based on that fact alone.
Why is she your waifu?
>>
>>100730246
I feel that part of her is inside me that sounded stupid other then that i can't now think much anything else.
>>
>>100730378
Well, she's a complex character, so until you can verbalize it you aren't helping anyone. Especially yourself
>>
>>100730110
Well, she certainly cares for others while not giving shit about herself, I don't deny that.
And she doesn't care about orders, she was doing it for Gendo and Shinji.

But she did hate living.
It's not that she's suicidal, but NERV didn't let her live her life as she wold like. She wasn't kept in the cage, but she knew she will end up as a lonely stray ghost.
So with that knowing she really wanted for end to finally come, because sitting waiting for death was not fun, sometimes you just want bad stuff to already happen rather than to sit and wait for it.
And she really just couldn't enjoy herself with knowing what going to happen.
>>
>>100730484

I'm not really digging your second paragraph. Like the post before it, it feels like you are putting a lot of personal interpretation of how she views the world, with some extra assumptions on what she knew about her existence and when.

I won't go deep about her monologue it 25th episode because it's contraversual and she's arguind with herself and tries to lie to herself.
But this implies that she knew everything.

Since when? Most probably quite long. Mayb even Rei 1 knew everything.
>>
>>100730900
And now if you look back at our conversation, you should be able to learn a bit more about yourself.
You think you see yourself in her character, and you may want to like someone like you, and you have difficulty expressing yourself. Main difference is, Rei has problem emoting, not verbalizing feelings when prompted
>>
>>100730980

You shouldn't be sorry about it, you should feel like you're in love with nothing, because that's basically what you're telling us.
>>
>>100731024
Don't know if this matters to the emoting thing, but i'm usually very apathetic.
>>
>>100731093
>You shouldn't be sorry about

Asukafag trolling softly.
>>
>>100731023
I'd argue that she is conflicted on a lot of interpersonal relationships and her personal existence makes her uneasy. But not that she is hating life, wanting the world to end sooner rather than later, etc
>>
>>100729712
You seem to be projecting what YOU feel onto her

Much like, i dunno...everyone in the show

Almost like that was the point of her character originally hm
>>
>>100731138
It doesn't, and that's another problem with people looking at Rei as a character. She's actually quite determined, and hardly apathetic.
>>
all I wanna say is that red = blue
>>
>>100731175

Not even. He just can't tell us his own impression or what he thinks about his own waifu; it's not an implication about Rei's character in any way, shape, or form.
>>
>>100731023
It's a sidenote but: She knew a lot maybe most of the stuff but even she didn't know everything, Ritsuko's line about Shinji and Rei not being able to forgive them makes me thing that at least she didn't know who her genetic source was.

Well, maybe, maybe not.
man's opinion may never be objective, and you can't get empiric knowledge of what's going in soneone's head.

I have to admit, my 'understanding' of Rei or should I call it my opinion about Rei did change several times in 6 years of my Reifaggotry.

First I din't understand her at all, but was fascinated by a misterious girl.
Then I came to thinking that she's a very sensitive girl that doesn't understand whaen it's to smile and when should she cry. Like she has feelings. lots of them, but can't emote them.
And then i came to thinking that she's depressed and bitter because of awareness of what they going to do to her, and not being able to do anything.

To be honest I felt like i understand her more when it was my second thought about her.
Now I'm starting to look back at myself and starting to feel like i was projecting my exaggerated vision of myself onto her.
And honestly, the deeper I thing the more lost i am.
But what makes you sure about what you believe?
Don't you doubt your own thinking?

I'm not sure how you can get that insinuation from my post. I like Shinji quite a bit and I think he's a very interesting and realistic portrayal of a main character in an extreme situation who can be empathized with in many different ways. I guess you think because I say Shinji is fucked up that I think he's a bad character or something, but the truth is, he definitely has some issues (whether it's due to his father, his mother leaving him at a young age and the subsequent matter of his father not raising him/really caring about him and et cetera). I can't see how you wouldn't think that.

>>100733176

That's true. I guess he really just didn't give a fuck in general; his motives on everything are actually pretty damn unclear. Okay, what about the other NERV employees?
>>
>>100733493
Shinji is the only person trying to solve things, he's just afraid and when can't see a positive feedback from the others he closes himself like an edgehog. Whe never see other characters trying to fix their shit.
>>
>>100733650

That's because in general, the other characters don't really need to fix their shit. One of the main themes in NGE is how terrible what the pilots have to go through is, but how it's a necessary evil in order for humanity to continue (and of course we learn more about it as the series goes on). Shinji does his job (with occasional outbursts), Asuka mostly does her job (there is a period and of course she does nothing after she gets mind raped), Rei always does her job, and Misato does her job (you can argue that she should have taken better care of Shinji and Asuka but she had a lot of her own problems and things to overcome herself and was far too immature in general to raise hormonal teenagers properly). In the end, everyone in the series does what they have to do, with some small exceptions through out. This doesn't solve any of the emotional conflict that the characters have, or how they feel, but they allow humanity to continue. I don't see exactly what Shinji tries to solve; in fact, he runs away during the series because his father won't give him any validation and is, for a brief time, willing to put these petty feelings ahead of the continuation of the human race. Note that I'm not complaining about Shinji's actions here; he's a teenager, and that's pretty expected (he's going to be really melodramatic and moody), but my point still stands; that kind of thing doesn't solve anything.

But if you could give me some specific examples of the issues you're talking about and Shinji solving them, I'd appreciate it.
>>
>>100731276
red+blue-purple=0
>>
>>100734219
First of all at the beginning of the series Shinji accepts to go where his father lives just to make up with him, even if we see him being tsun about it. He wants to have a relationship but when he discovers his father doesn't give a damn he reacts like a bitchy teenager, before reasoning through it and deciding to help.
Shinji is mentally sane, as you said just a teenage robot pilot that has to go through teribble things.
>>
>>100734707
I never implied Shinji wasn't mentally sane. I implied that he has deep-seeded psychological issues regarding his father and people in general, which I find extremely hard to deny considering his conduct throughout the series with others and especially his father. While he may not necessarily doom humanity by not piloting his EVA, for a moment, he's okay with letting Rei shoulder all his burden just because his dad didn't give him the validation that he was seeking. I don't understand when Shinji reasoned with his father; Gendo was never someone he could reason with in general. After Yui died Gendo only ever viewed Shinji as a tool that he could use when he sees fit, and that's all Gendo needs Shinji for. It's obvious that this deeply effects Shinji despite how badly he doesn't want it to.

Shinji is definitely sane, and as we've both agreed on, a reasonable and realistic protagonist for the situation that he's been forced into. At the same time, though, I think it's hard to deny there's some serious psychological issues going on, as well as social issues; Shinji constantly has trouble expressing himself and his emotions properly throughout the entire series (just like everyone else, really) and very often would rather withdraw.

She did refuse going to party when Misato got promoted.
>>
>>100735420
Not him, but that actually depends. Is it post "REI II" episode, or post. I get the feeling she wouldn't give a shit, and decline if not ordered, to go before Ramiel. Since it happened after Ramiel in Rebuild, I'd say you are right.
>>
>>100735056
I see Shinji as a more positive and active person than most of the cast, maybe I'm mistaken because he's the MC and we see his pov. I don't think he has psychological issues because
>Gendo was never someone he could reason with in general
There's just so much he can do about it and still, like any sane person, it will make him suffer forever.
>>
>>100735578
In NGE Rei 2 refused going to Misato's party a lot after Ramiel.
And It was when she got a lot close to Shinji.
>>
>>100735550
I don't know. She is implied that she read books and what not. I wouldn't put it past her to go to an aquarium featuring endangered animals and shit. Misato's party was purely social.
>>
>>100735679
But >>100735727, Misato's party was completely social by nature. She does have a curiousity side. I didn't mean specifically to be near Shinji, but he did spark a little something in her after she was asked to smile. Not that she was infatuated with him after the event.
>>
Well In one hand It's animals - Rei likes them, and Shinji.
In other hand it's also other annoying people and Asuka.

I'd say the chanses are even maybe she'd go to see animal with Shinji, maybe she'd refuse because it's gonna be noisy and Asuka will also be there.

Well I read your argumentation and I agree a little bit, but as for how I view things, it was 3.0 that fucked us over. 2.22 doesn't reduce, in truth it expands since it shows us a side of Rei not shown clearly yet. Yes it's "poka-poka", but it doesn't reduce since there's still yet more to come. The same way Rei didn't show all of herself in the first few episodes, she didn't do that in 2.22 either.

It all goes horribly wrong when Rei stops half-way into the show. In NGE Rei was there for 23 whole episodes before dying and changing, and that death didn't result in something absolutely worthless as Rei Q. Rei III was a definite soul and heartcrusher, but it was still really great for the character unlike Rei Q.

View it another way, pretend 2.22 wasn't poka-poka for Rei, pretend it was something else. Pretend she did some combat or philosophy instead, but then 3.0 cuts her out, and we have the same problem, Rei without development or progress that is still fucked over.

Had 3.0 been good for Rei, it'd have Rei 2.22 survive and still be a part of the ongoing plot. If it was to be merely all right, we'd get a better Rei III and not shit-tier Rei Q.
When you think about it, 3.0 is far worse when it comes to reducing, since it is very heavy-handed with just labeling Rei a Yui-clone and showing you a retarded Rei.

>>100735550
No she didn't, we don't know why she couldn't come in NGE. You could say she didn't care or would want to, but we dunno. The trip in 2.22 is different however.
This trip is arranged by higher powers, not some non-official thing.

>>100735578
But see above. Normally Rei wouldn't give a shit since it's not necessary, but isn't the school trip arranged by NERV/Misato itself?
>>
>>100720647

Don't recall at all. But really, I'm not the guy who said she'd be enthusiastic to go or whatever, but it doesn't seem like she'd turn it down.

I think there's mothing more to come. Only this.
This is only adding something else if you project it onto NGE where Rei already had development.
But if you look an Rebuild as it is
1 silent cute girl, smiles when told to - kinda cute
2 poka poka
3 Is this an order? What is Like?
4 more of three.

So Rei's character is thrown away.
Bid long-running Anno's plan.
People are not going to be watching NGE anymore, there's a new good looking version in HD. And Rei sucks in it.
>>
>>100722729
It was to show you that Rebuild is going to change drastically. Remember Asuka's doll?
>>
>>100736225
>No she didn't, we don't know why she couldn't come in NGE.

Would Rei lie to other guys of NERV crew that she didn't want to?
If she had something to do in NERV she'd just say so "I had to do some stuff".

But instead she said that "i hate noisy parties" and she didn't even want to come to eat nooddless after they beaten space-bomber angel, but Shinji begged her to.
>>
>>100722942
But Rei is a doormat. Just for Gendo (after all, she is his wife) and not the MC Shinji who all the beta faggots self-insert themselves into.

I'd post a picture of asuka wrapped in duckt tape wit an eyepatch and a hat if I had any pictures of Asuka.

>>100737149
Theory:
If Rebuild is a sequel to NGE then the entire Universe is the same; what changes it planet Earth; so Lilith is the same Lilith and Adam is the same Adam. Also Lili's sould which is inside Rei has some kind of "memories" from all the things that happened in NGE and EoE.
Maybe Rei is trying to avoid that from hapeening once and once again in an infinite loop by doing the things that lead to Q.

NOW that is, after 3.0 cuts out that portion.

Weird, I don't remember her saying that. Wasn't that Shinji?

Too deep with theorycrafting.
They aynt gonna think this much it with rebuild.
They gonna slap some robots fighting and some cool effects, then some weird crap for an ending and a new best seller is done.

Also they killed Lilith in 3.33
>>
>>100737098
For fucks sake, she's not his wife. That's Yui, not Rei.
Gendo never mistreated Rei or treated her poorly beyond what he does with the other children either.
Don't see the basis for a doormat here.

>>100737038
Depends on what stuff it is. The tank baths are probably top secret, not even Misato has access down there.

I'm pretty sure B-10 played in the series, but the others were all cut.

Much like the original version of Thanatos never plays in full.

She could say "I was busy", "I had to do something" and something of this kind instead of lying that she hates parties.

Actually I can't fucking imagine her lying or being inhonest.This little angel has never lied in her entire life and once she even died for ralking too much.

Well, there's lying by omission and not being honest, but then again you aren't obligated to tell everyone anything.

>>100738606
Well I was sure she said that, but I couldnt pinpint it in episodes after the party.

Like they did in NGE. Asuka saw piloting and killing angels in a competetive light, while Rei obviously didn't. That was the whole point. They weren't going to be friends, and Rei sure wasn't going to see Asuka as a rival.
