What does /a/ think of Kaworu?
An pretty good monster of the Week Villain, a terrible moron in Rebuild.
He is the best girl.
I liked him, but not one of my favorites
He had a cool death theme in 3.0.
I want to fuck him.
Was this intentional?
He and Shinji are the only ones that manage to not have their characterization completely thrown out the window in 3.0, so kudos to that.
You callin' Kaworu a fuckin' fairy?
Pretty cool guy, I would fuck him, actually.
Embodiment of unconditional love, dies everytime in order to demonstrate this very notion doesn't exist. He makes my heart weak. homophobicseal.jpg
He's a great concept.
Cool faggot in the original. Flat-out faggot in Rebuild.
I just want to sit down, smoke a blunt, and chat about philosophy with him.
He wants to be free of his fate to make his beloved happy. I love him. [/spoiler:lit]No homo.[/spoiler:lit]
I'm not even gay but something about Kaworu makes me hard as fuck.
I want to hear him talk about everything while I'm really content and warm and sleepy.
Were they gay for one another or just uncomfortably good friends?
One-sided from Shinji.
Do you think he prefers it up the butt, or sticking it in the butt?
Wish the original series had more of him, liked him in R3 that piano scene was beautiful.
Really the only gay character in animation whose sexuality contributes to the story with it being annoying or in your face.
I saw 3.0 in theaters, the whole room crack up at that.
He just wants to make Shinji happy.
Shinji probably wants to stick it in.
So, Kaworu would bottom.
Kaworu was gay for Shinji. Although he's straight, Shinji pretty much went along with it because he was desperate for companionship and affection.
Whatever Shinji wants
he is My favorite EVA character by far, but the competition is shit anyway.
It seems like so few on /a/ liked Kaworu in 3.0 at all, and while I understand why, I liked him too. He makes me feel good.
Kaworu probably doesn't even know what the concept of sexuality is. I doubt he wanted to get it on with a member of another species. Shinji on the other hand was blushing like a schoolgirl every time he saw him.
I think he's a-head of the competition.
Until Shinji hears about prostate massage.
they're totally fucking gay
Shinji being open to it all makes him Bisexual
Though to be fair, regardless of species it's hard to find a creature that's straight up hetero or homo. Fuck is blind.
What if Kaworu was a girl?
You might say that he's head and shoulders above the rest.
he certainly acts as the dominant masculine party in the relationship, though that doesn't always translate exactly to sexual roles.
He was the love Shinji needed, but not the love Shinji deserved (at least, according to Shinji). It's a shame they end so tragically, it was the only honest love Shinji had known since the death of his mother.
I recommend everyone read the yaoi doujin screencapped here>>101292537 where shinji discovers the wonders of anal masturbation called "Hole Circumstances of my Secret"
/a/ wold waifu it with the force of one thousand suns
Actually, Tout est Perplexe is really a remix of Cruel Dilemme from 1.11, which is a remix of Hedgehog's Dilemma from the TV series.
Very tricky of you Sagisu
Yeah definitely. My problem was he just sat around in his confused pain pity slouch when Shinji really needed him, but I explain that away with that he was in shock from it.
He really does have an air of warmth, even before he knew Shinji he still said "hey yo come piano with me" With him gone I hope Shinji ends up alone and is okay with that
he is my husbando and my favourite character from EVA, he saved 3.0 for me.
Can't find just the piano scene from 3.0, anyone got a source?
It's a beautiful track, but I'll never not hear the fairy fountain theme.
Plot-induced stupidity is always cringeworthy, but that's what it is: stupidity shoehorned in to further the plot. It's a shame, but hey.
Anyway, I think we'll see him again. Also
>even before he knew Shinji
I love him, but not even he could save that abomination.
He caused a lot of shitstorms with retards because of 3.33 but I think he's alright.
I wish I could've seen the shitstorms about FUCKING FUJOS when NGE 24 came out.
>this entire thread
I'd say in the TV series, probably. While Kaworu did represent "unconditional love," I don't think he himself really understood the meaning of human love. Or he wouldn't have asked Shinji to kill him and would have understood how painful it would be for him to do so.
In Rebuild, (if Ishida's words are true about him being the same Kaworu from the TV-verse) he definitely has come to love Shinji just as much, if not more, than Shinji loved him in the TV series. He seems pretty upset there during his final scene, he didn't want to die.
*personally, I should've clarified that.
Can't have a Kaworu thread without blatant Tumblr.
I've only watched the original and EoE. Why would anyone like Kaworu as their favorite character?
Is it something to do with the rebuilds?
>He seems pretty upset there during his final scene, he didn't want to die.
As stupid as they wrote him, it still hurts.
They could have done so much more with him.
For all that wasted potential I can't help but be disappointed with 3.0.
Because he's beautiful and people want him to make them feel as good as he wants to make Shinji feel. ;_;
It's a fantastic doujin
Viewers who have gone through depression tend to be substantially impacted by Kaworu.
It's more about what he represents, then what he actually is.
Because Kaworu is a magnificent gay faggot
>I wish I could've seen the shitstorms about FUCKING FUJOS when NGE 24 came out.
>/a/ existing before 2000
>you will never experience watching Utena and another shitton of old anime with /a/ back then when they were airing.
I wonder what would've happened
You will never play piano with Kaworu.
Does Anno think Jesus Chirst was a raging homosexual or something?
Why did he make the Jesus character so fabulous?
I would let him fuck me, and i'm not even gay.
Kaworu is most loyal husbando in all anime. Is there anyone who compares?
He goes into some details here
In more or less every other eva product/story he is treated as just as pivotal as the 2 other pilots and misato, but they got the pacing so fucked as for him to only get 1 episode in the original series, initially he was going to be introduced circa episode 11.
Why I like him is because he's the crux of Shinji's emotional struggle in EoE. Shinji losing Kaworu, short-lived as it was, was him losing the one person who he really connected with. Shinji lost what he was looking for. EoE wouldn't been quite as good if Kaworu hadn't been there, Shinji understood by the time Kaworu got there he had to get in the robot, Kaworu's death shoved him back out. Shinji would've had no acceptable reason plotwise to say no at this point.
Shinji is my favorite in the series, but Kaworu is my second.
I wonder if Ikuhara has a restraining order against Anno after seeing 3.0
>you will never get to sit in Kaworu's lap as you both take a bath
I wish Anno sticked to his original plan of having Kaworu since the beginning. Rebuild has been shit so far but I prefer to give Anno the benefit of the doubt so maybe Rebuild wouldn't suck so much if Anno made something different since 1.0
You'll never have another man tenderly open your heart and convince you it's all right to love and be loved.
You'll never have someone who loves your flaws, the parts of you that have driven everyone else away.
You'll never have someone love you by doing nothing but being yourself.
You'll never play piano with Kaworu.
Yeah, it's a bit double sided with me. I was personally satisfied and enjoyed him, but he could've been done alot better too like you said.
Nigger, you would have to be gay to not want to be fucked by Kaworu
How could anyone love this semen demon?
good fucking lord
He's best girl
Wow, what the fuck is up with /a/ tonight? Kaworu usually gets shat on like there's no tomorrow.
Anyways, I fucking love Kaworu (no homo). He has a kickass personality and great design. I will admit that I was a bit disappointment that Kaworu didn't get to fight in 3.0, that shit was a huge fucking let down. I did like seeing him DESPAIR though. Never thought we'd see a side to him like that, since he was always depicted as calm and smug in the original series and manga.
I never used to really care about Kaworu much, but after collecting so much Shinji art, it tends to have an effect on you
Don't sexualize Kaworu.
I would've liked to see the whole lineup of pilots and Evas together at one point. I think we see all three main Evas fighting together once in NGE. Would've been really cool to see all six on the field.
/a/'s just tsundere for Kaworu. You'd have to be retarded and insecure to hate unconditional love.
You assume that an anime character will not betray you. Iku-chan said [to me], "in the last episode, please have Rei Ayanami get married and become pregnant. Just please betray the Ayanami fans. The Rei Ayanami they are thinking of is not real. The real Rei Ayanami gets married, and her belly..."
>tfw anno should have listen to Iku-chan
Making Kaworu a time looper and having him since the beginning as Shinji's BFF would make him into a shameless Ryo Asuka's rip-off. Contrary to popular believe, there's a diference between "inspired by" and rip-off
I wish Khara cared more about Toji.
Sadly Touji isn't a pilot in Rebuild, but I kinda hope for a Shinji/Asuka/Mari/Rei/Kaworu team up in 4.0. Even if there is little to no hope.
I've only seen Kaworu bashing in You-Know-What threads.
/a/ has always been tsuntsun for Kawoguu
I'm also digging his new haircut.
I think he really only gets shat on by shippers, the majority don't seem to mind him.
>that Kaworu didn't get to fight in 3.0
This infuriated me the most. We see Kaworu at the end of 2.0 with Mark 06, and he doesn't even get to do anything with it? Such a shame, Mark06 has such a nice design too.
Timeskip fill-in movie when? I'd love to see Kaworu dicking around in Mark06 and NERV, doing shit without Shinji. It'd be great.
RIP Mark.06, RIP.
It feels so wrong, the suit was so hyped up after 2.22. It got figures, even featured in the Pachinko games and then it did jack shit. I will never forgive you Anno.
>tfw you will never lick the bulge in kaworu's plugsuit
I'll have to stick with playing the clear rout in dramatical murder
>I will admit that I was a bit disappointment
>that shit was a huge fucking let down
Whoa, I contradicted my self there. It WAS a huge letdown, but the movie itself was pretty good in my opinion.
>you will never Shinji
I guess the problem is if you keep Toji in the mix Shinji doesn't get to act full bitchmode all the time and we can't do away with that selling point of the series...
There's still one unmentioned Eva. If we're gonna have false hope might as well go all the way.
Wow, that's fucking cute.
Official Gainax art.
regardless of weather or not kaworu was inspired by a real relationship, nobody's perfect.
>one unmentioned Eva
There's more than one, 7, 10,11, and 12.
That's one of my favourite new pics, seeing them both so happy is pretty adorable
We need an Eva spinoff of Kensuke Shinji Touji and Kaworu screwing around and being bros.
Unit 7, 10, 11, and 12 are all missing from action.
>you will never fuck a white haired robot that's only devoted to you
why even live
Would you want to be princess carried by Kaworu?
>trying to fill the Kaworu void with a retarded sexbot
The boner I get with that Ishida voice stoned and talking about philosophy, dammit.
As long as it's Kaworu.
Well I wasn't gonna count 10,11 or 12 because those are all post Mk 9 which is piloted by Rei Q so it'd be safe to assume they're under Nerv control.
That's assuming they even exist and 13 wasn't just a number they slapped on Unit 01 Double Arm Limited Sport Edition.
I really have no idea what the fuck to expect in Final at this point. I guess it's taking down Gendo now that he has Unit 13 awakened. But then what? How will they fix the world to actually have a chance for humanity?
I can't expect Anno to do another EoE end, cause he wrote himself into a corner with that the first time (which is why Rebuild is what it is in the first place) and if he wants to keep expanding on the Eva world after Final, it'll be hopeful in some way.
What was your reaction when you found out Kaworu was an angel in NGE?
Or was it already obvious from the beginning of the episode?
>Unit 01 Double Arm Limited Sport Edition.
13 is perfection, shut up.
I want it to be as stupid as possible so we can talk about it here on /a/ forever.
Drammatical Murder is fucking ridiculous fujoshit. and I played through it all.
also wtf did every other part of his body disintergrate besides his dick, what made his dick so structurally sound, it should have snapped off into aobas ass
>How will they fix the world to actually have a chance for humanity?
More than that, how will they do it in a single film? 3.0 was too short and accomplished little.
I like Kaworu and whatever he represents, but his lasts moments in 3.33 were pure and irredeemable turd and so badly written that it affects the rest a lot.
Wasn't Anno planning Rebuild for a while? You'd think he would have written an outline or some shit beforehand, but I can't help but think he's making it all up as he goes along. Just like NGE. No wonder it's such a trainwreck.
Of all the spin-off series Eva could possibly get that unfortunately isn't it.
For these >>101295746 reasons 7 is really the one we care about if we wanna see Toji drop some bodies.
Anno's going to be dragging out the timeskip setting for as long as he financially can. As long as the yen keeps flowing, he has no obligation to attempt another EoE mindfuck.
I didn't play it all because it was too shitty even for me. Is this really what makes fujos happy?
Clear was probably used repeatedly for sex beforehand. It was his secondary reason for creation.
I sort of forgot my initial reaction, I thought he was just a SEELE spy who acted weirdly, but not an Angel.
>I can't help but think he's making it all up as he goes along
That's exactly what he's doing.
I want a spinoff of all the adults in their earlier years.
Even the SEELE members. I want their backstories and shit.
I heard that Anno wants Evangelion to be a franchise with multiple series done by different creators
>characters that aren't really gay
>dumb ass plots
yeah it's fujoshit, it has the same characterization problems as all the most famous fujoshit yaoi, I'm looking at you junjo romantica
I liked it only because the art doesn't look like your generic BL out there and the music is pretty good.
Didn't care about the story.
The first time I watched NGE, everything was so damn confusing. I was enjoying the show, but still, I was trying to piece together a lot of stuff as I continued watching. It wasn't until Ritsuko said he is probably the last angel that I went like "oh shit, what". And then Kaworu started floating, ode to joy began to play and everyone was screaming.
I watched NGE when I was fairly young, so I didn't figure it out until he started levitating.
I kept thinking he was going to transform into a giant Lovecraftian thing like the other angels.
I do wonder how much was planned out before hand. But I have to wonder, if the mishmash feel of the movies has to do with too many people all wanting their own things.
Anno with his want for Gendo/Misato/Kaworu focus, Tsurumaki wanted more Asuka, Enokido wanted more romantic sol retardedness, the producers wanted the movies to be shorter so a lot of stuff got cut. For something that I thought was going to be "Anno's vision of Evangelion," it sure doesn't seem he got the final word.
>Kaowru dies in every literation.
Did anyone like the Gakuen Apocalypse manga? I thought it was alright.
>Asuka with a whip
>Dat AsukaxRei relation ship
>Kaowru dying for your sins
Could have easily been the best Eva AU manga if it hadn't gotten canceled so early.
Does anyone know why it got canceled? Was it not received well in Japan?
He should have just written the movies as an ensemble cast. We really didn't need to see Shinji's story again. Especially at the expense of the other characters feeling like cardboard.
Yeah such a shame, I really enjoyed it.
I wish I knew.
Why are they so perfect? I want them both.
I have a weakness for male/female twins.
I want to know more
Sells and readership just weren't high enough, that's usually the death of any manga.
Love to know who the fuck is still buying that god awful Shinji Rising Project that it's been running since 2005.
>blatant fujoshit thread
I thought we got rid of this crap once the generals ended aside from a few shitposters.
>Sells ad readership just weren't high enough
But, why? It was genuinely interesting for an Eva spin off. I don't understand Japan's tastes.
Maybe they expected more from an Eva one than a usual manga and were more strict with the ratings.
We've been over this a thousand times. Japan has pure, uncut, shit taste.
>How will they fix the world to actually have a chance for humanity?
They won't. They'll wing it and bring along more destruction. Everyone dies again because Fiith Impact.
Or Anno will pull a dues ex machina with magiks.
There is no need to be upset.
Kaworu was a forced bond made to be forcefully severed, all to drive Shinji further into his downward emotional spiral. He's the Mary Sue Shinji tossed into the plot at a conveniently perfect time to put Shinji mental well being deep into dark territory.
Had he made that bond with Asuka, he'd have launched his Eva into the lake next to unit 02 and kicked bird-eva ass alongside her instead of moping in a corner during the attack in EOE. Shinji would have restored the world and gone back to Tokyo 3 with Asuka. Asuka believing her mother lives in the AT Field and Shinji having Asuka would be the least fucked up ending I could imagine.
If he made the bond with Rei it'd be the rebuild where he finally shows a little backbone.
It had to be Kaworu. It had to be someone to force Shinij to lose his motivation to fight, or EOE just wouldn't happen like it did. Which is why Kaworu existed, and why he was disposable.
So you're saying this thread was b8 all along?
If you wanted more Kaworu you should have just said so Anon-kun~
Self-inserting otaku that need to fantasize about everything.
Read the manga faggot.
>Asuka cracking a whip will never be animated.
>he'd have launched his Eva into the lake next to unit 02 and kicked bird-eva ass alongside her
That's how the manga fight goes down. Everyone still gets tanged.
>Pilots wear skintight suits
>No penis bulge or outline of vagina
>No harden nipples when the male/females get cold or nipples in general
What's the point?
Makes me wonder if KIaworu was really needed for the plot in the first place.
Shinji probably would've hit his downward spiral with Asuka already being comatose, having the knowledge that Rei is his mother's clone, all of his friends moving away, Misato suddenly becoming detached from Kaji's death, and Rei II being replaced with Kaworu's help. Loneliness can really do that shit to you after a couple of days.
Kaworu is needed to show Shinji the one thing he couldn't get from anyone else: love
He even says the end of the ep24, "Kaworu-kun said he loved me... It was the first time someone told me they loved me." Could they have had someone else do that? Probably, but then that would change whichever character that was, pretty extensively (if you're staying you want someone already a part of the cast to do the same thing for Shinji). Being all the human characters in Eva are pretty selfish and too worried about themselves to honestly love Shinji the way he needed to feel, it would be hard to get the same messages across that Kaworu represents.
What he was looking for all along was love and affection, someone that loved him for who he was. The people in his life all had expectations for him, they all wanted him to change himself.
Kaworu was needed, because being the ideal Shinji and presenting unconditional love, accepting Shinji for who he is was exactly what he was looking for the entire time.
Kaworu was the boost Shinji needed to realize that he can love himself, but if Kaworu had stayed alive Shinji would have just relied on him and never stood up for himself so Kaworu needed to die.
Has Anno ever read Kawoshin doujinshi?
>all that talk about the theme of running away
Holy shit how have I not read this before
He made one, actually. It's called Rebuild 3.0
Gainax did publish a doujinshi anthology back in the 90s full of Kawoshin stories, so I'm sure he has. He bet he gets his wife to draw doujins for him too.
Shit, that's right.
Anno's wife is a huge Kawoshinfag too.
I wonder if they draw the doujinshi to bond together.
