Why are Rei and Asuka so physically stronger than Shinji?
because he is a fucking pussy
>b-but my tons of arguments about how mentally damaged he is
just because he had a shitty life doesnt excuse the fact that shinji is not even 1% cool
or a good human being for that matter
eva should have been about penpen
Why do Asuka and Rei have curves when they're 13 years old?
Eva predicted the hormones in the milk.
Truly Anno is the master.
I know OP. It's total bullshit. Normally men get at least +2 Strength compared to women. Girls get better Charisma scores though.
Girls generally have an edge on boys until the male hormones finally kick in. Which doesn't take long.
>Hey Penpen if you get in the robot I'll give you a fish.
Show over everyone is saved.
Don't they have military training?
Shinji's able to lift Asuka off the ground while he chokes her
In strength? no.
>Shinji's able to lift Asuka off the ground while he chokes her
That's just wishful thinking and Instrumentality
That was in a dream and dreams are weird.
>I grew up with malnourished African kids
When do you think puberty starts? Also, they're 14.
They're from a time when the earths population was cut in half so the food is probably super hormonaly inhanced thus making girls curvy as fuck.
That or anno wanted something appealing to look at, probably the latter.
They've been piloting longer than he has.
And yet he still outperforms them
Because Atlanteans are naturally frail.
>his mom outperforms them
You were close.
Main character + rule of the promising rookie.
His mother does.
Because he's girlier than both of them combined?
So, as soldiers, they need to work out hard?
Have you ever seen a fat solider?
that dude will stay PFC his whole career. He's lucky they haven't boot him before that.
In 2008 the Army would take anyone as long as they had a pulse. He'd definitely be the first one to get the cut these days.
I guess jacking off over comatose girls didn't help with Shinji's strength...
Don't be a fool. That isn't strong-fat - even if it was, his lack of stamina would be detrimental to his use in the military.
They're at that age where they're pretty evenly matched, and more or less the same height- though Asuka tends to appear taller due to Shinji slouching and her own need to stand as tall and proud as possible.
Asuka was chosen to be a pilot from an early age and probably received physical training. She's also a university graduate (though they never really acknowledge that).
Rei was meant to be some kind of perfect pilot or some shit like that so she's probably got artificial muscles or something.
Shinji is curvier than both Asuka and Rei.
And everyone knows it.
also she is half german so she should be quite a bit taller than shinji later on
Quarter German and half unspecified Anglo.
No, 3/4 german, 1/4 japanese
Her father's nationality is never stated.
how the hell is this allowed?
I believe its stated that she has American citizenship at some point, so presumably Mr. Langley is American.
Fujoshi landwhale, please go.
If he's American that still doesn't tell you much about his ancestry.
those fucking rape faces, goddamn, they get me everytime
Unf. I just want to see those lithe, slender teenaged bodies pressed up against one another and exploring each others' curves.
No, but as this anon said, "Langley" suggests its Anglo- or maybe Irish-American.
He must've drawn Shinji as a girl and changed the face and hair.
Too fucking feminine.
But shinji lifts
>Q: A sort of delicate character.
A: I wanted a sort of clean image that a woman tends to project. But also a character that is cold, unambitious-the type who would commit suicide, but can't bring himself to do it. It was my intention to create a wistful character who had given up on life.
>Q: Did you have a model for his face.
A: Not particularly. The image of a hero in Japan is like Ushiwakamaru, the strong champion whom no adversity will affect. When you say "hero" in Japan, it conjures the impression of a man, just prior to middle age, accomplished at arms, with a burning spirit. Or maybe you think or a bishonen (beautiful young man). In the beginning I gave Shinji longer hair, so in the dramatic scenes, it could hide his face or wave in the breaze. But when I drew that, he looked a little too wild-and so delicate the slightest pressure would break him. So finally I tried for a look where you could see the forhead through the bangs, shorter hair-the look of a boyish young girl. Spreaking in concreate terms, his eyes are a girl's eyes. I drew them exactly as I drew Nadia's [the heroine of Gainax's 1990 TV series Nadia, forthcoming in English from A.D.V. Films-ed.] eyes. He's a male Nadia, just as if I had given Nadia a masculine makeover. Lengthen the eyelashes and change the hair style, and you have Nadia.
You've never watched Nadia, have you?
Because they had undergone months of physical training before piloting the EVAs. Shinji was recruited at the last minute and thrown into the battlefield without any training beforehand or that much time for training between each Angel attack. Shinji was only able to really rely on support from Misato, Rei, and Asuka, as well as his personal battlefield experience.
>Shinji is actually the greatest reverse trap in all of anime.
Truly a feat worthy of the master.
Rei and Asuka were piloting the evas for a while before Shinji was
Obviously they were training all that time while Shinji was just laying around listening to his walkman
Also Gendo probably just engineered Rei to be naturally strong from the beginning
Maybe. But I think it's because toned bodies sell better than tiny ones.
>14 years old
Aren't them beautiful?
Asuka: Steroids, look at that girl roid rage around.
Rei: Genetic manipulation and lots of training in the vat and with Gendou.
Shinji: /b/eing /a/ /v/ermin.
>Gendo probably just engineered Rei to be naturally strong from the beginning
So, I bt it really hurts, huh?
And Mari? She has bigger breasts and ass than Asuka and Rei,
But she is not 14
Well, she's part british and you know that their gems are true gems genetically.
Really? I think she is.
There is no proof for either statements, they never revealed her age. But she does look more mature than the other pilots and is taller than then.
