I can't wait to see more of her in 4.0. She had a cute personality, I know she was probably just shoehorned in for otaku pandering, but we can always use more cute girls in Eva. As long as the story is still confusing and filled with despair, we have nothing to worry about.

Soryu had her ups but also had her downs, Shikinami is always up, her downs from the original series are completely nullified. No doll complex, No Kaji complex, Misato manages to reach her, she gets over her mindrape, thanks to the "angel infection" she is now relevant to the bigger scheme of things and did Soryu die on a battle because she had no allies? Well, we just added a pretty yuribait sniper to look after Shikinami

All I want to know is why they had such a focus on she being and looking more mature than the other pilots, the concept of having a chosen child that knows how to deal with adults and has her own agenda is interesting, but sadly Mari hasn't done much outside of cryptic talk ™ until now.

>>101468578
A question, did you watch the Rebuilds before NGE?
>>
>>101468578
What you're saying hasn't got the slightest sense. Shikinami is Soryu reduced to her basics; Soryu has a terribly complex personality well defined by her past while Shikinami is just a Soryu-like tsundere.
I like Shikinami, though

>>101468622
I don't think most Asuka fans would know complexity if it hit them in the face and taunted them for hours.

Asuka's appeal has always been since even the original, more of a frivolous and fanservice-y appeal. That is, she's a walking anime character cliche - Anno likes her because she's cute. She's got slapstick, comedy and tsundere, plus loads of shipping potential.

Asuka fans don't care about the character's "complexity".

....and to be quite honest, asuka isn't very complex. She's quite simple, but placed in a complex anime.
>>
>>101468638
Sounds like you're fanwanking Anon, but there was a theory that Mari was the daughter of Kyoko's rival so that might explain her initial look.
>>
>>101468638
I get the sense that a lot of intended aspects of characters got lost in the shuffle of re-write after re-write. At this point I don't think Mari's line about using adults will ever be relevant to the plot. It's not even present in the dub being exchanged for "using adults to get what she wants" which just seems to be piloting an Eva.

Rei's better but it's gotta sting that Sohryu got taken over by Shikinami, Soryu was a bitch but a magnificent bitch.

I have to laugh because you seriously think anime fans and of all people - ASUKAFAGS like Asuka because she's complex. She's a waifu. Look at the OP, look at the copious "BEST GIRL" posts in this thread and in every thread. There aren't people exactly mourning the loss of complexity in her character, Asuka is more "in" now than she's ever been.

You two put too much stock in the regular Asuka fan. I've been around in the fandom long enough to say that except maybe the Kaworu fans, they're the ones that actually care the least about complexity in the characters, it's more about worshiping an archetype. This doesn't include the general plebe OMG EVA01 SO COOL xD fan.

I can summarize the Asuka's fan's interest with two-three words;
-Waifuism
-Shipping
-Pure action

Most of the "general" eva fans like her for the former, but Asukafans are more liable to have the two first as their defining trait. The only ever discussion you see on the character is usually related to that.

Shikinami is Soryu that's written with more thougthfulness is the way I see it. Asuka in NGE was what made me an asukafag but she was way too linear, Shikinami has something Soryu doesn't have, she can change and that's what I wanted to see most in Asuka.
Her newfound strength makes her the best for me by a longshot, she's the real Asuka without plot weighing her down

You know, this is just proving my post right. She's not the most complex character by far, she's extremely simple and predictable as a character.
Shinji is far superior in every regard, so where are the Shinjifans? Complexity isn't necessarily what fans care about you know.
Asukafans are definitely not different.

Not true really, it'd be welcome.

Asukafag here. Rei's probably the most complex character, at least amongst the pilots, though she tends to be subtle about it. Unless you're paying attention during her introspective scenes and watched the TV finale, you'll miss it.

Asuka is definitely tied with Shinji when it comes to overall complexity though, or maybe just a little more complex. As for the adults, I really didn't put much thought into ranking them.
>>
>>101469462
>You have weird waifu standards; If you knew Asuka well you'd know she has enough problems with herself.
It's more like you don't know what a waifu is. Your opinion is not worth a cent.

"True Asukafag"? There are no true Asukafags, just Asukafags, and they all like her because of the looks and sex-appeal.

Instead it's common that an Asuka fan will use some perceived notion of complexity as a shield. Don't try this with me man, I've seen so much and learnt so much about this community.

Shinji and Asuka have the same background and more or less the same issues. One is not more complex than the other.

>>101469762
No, there really aren't any Shinjifags.... once in a blue moon they'll come out. That's my point, a complex character isn't attractive to anime fans in general. You need the stuff asuka has, which is mass-appeal because of cuteness, tsundere and humour.

That's what anime is founded on, you know - not depressing stuff.

Similarites doesn't mean they have the same complexity. You'll find that everything in Evangelion reflects back at Shinji some point, even Asuka's main point as a character is that.

Asuka is a tiny figure compared to Shinji, with perhaps not even half the complexity of him. Shinji is the most developed, fleshed out and analyzed character in the show. The ending is ALL about Shinji.

I don't know what shame you feel about admitting that, but.... don't be like this, Asuka isn't a real woman, she's an anime character and while I love her that doesn't mean she's a real woman. She's not even a woman in the anime!

>Please tell me.
Asuka isn't less complex because they can't have a deep character or developed one, but it's because the character they have to copy from isn't what appeals to either the writers or the fans.

Much of the Asuka-depth was in NGE copied from other characters of the time, Anno's favorites most notably. They can't do that again.

You could say they want Asuka to be popular, because many of the writers are actually Asuka fans, so it's gratifying for them and me that it is like this. That's why Rebuild has given Asuka extremely strong plot armor and made her extremely cool, it's like a fantasy - and it works. In the beginning the things that were popular about Asuka was never her complexity or depth, even if I'm a fan of that.
It's possible to remove it entirely and it still remains Asuka, which is what happened in the cinema version.
>>
>>101470623
Asuka was having problems before the angel mind rape. She was already syncing at a lower ratio because of emotional turmoil prior to that. They were both consistently a mess throughout the series it just gets slightly better towards the middles before it all tumbles down.
>>
>>101470792
>The way her past influences her in the present is more realistic than any other character's.
Technically it's the least realistic, because we lack anything in-between. It's a weak point of the character, much like the 14-year timeskip in 3.0.
>>
>>101470792
>The way her past influences her in the present is more realistic than any other character's. Her developing is also very conditioned by her past, which doesn't happen in such a obvious way in any other cahracter.
You need to pay more attention to Evangelion if you believe that. They're all affected.

On the contrary I'd say Asuka is the least realistic in terms of background. You know the whole trauma-thing has been criticized because of the way it's been done, it's two-dimensional to have a character in the present be defined entirely by something in the past. It foregoes the whole idea that a person can change, you can't simply not show the in-between.
That is why it remains largely removed in newer versions, since then it won't seem like she's only defined by her past and not the present.

Nothing insurmountable I think. I know communication problems and trust issues are the big thing here, but I could see it happening in a nicer world.
And possibly after Instrumentality, in very imperfect way, though I'm not one of those LASfags that think the ending is romantic at all.
>>
So let me get this straight:
Asukafags can't differentiate between a 14-year old and a grown up woman. They like her because she's a woman.
That tells me their entire affection for a fictional character is based on a huge lie they're telling themselves.
>>
>>101470812
basically this:
>>101461904

Fans aren't interested in a complex character for Asuka, and would rather have her rebuilt and rebranded into Shikinami - hence the huge success of Shikinami everywhere.

>>101471091
>Maybe he's not a pedophile.

I don't know where you get the idea that Asuka became a grown woman at any point in the series or EoE, seeing how the source of her trauma has always been about losing her own mother.

>>101470859
If you try to put in her shoes caring of her past her chilhood, what happened with her in NGE is the most natural consequence to that.

>>101470981
Well I particularly think that's a big point from NGE. If Asuka doesn't change even when she meets Shinji, it's not because of her stubbornness or plot fails, it's in part because of the Hedgehog's Dilemma. So when Shinji and her get close, they both get hurt, that's a reason for that past-conditioned reactions in the present.

No? That's not how a real person works. They can change in all directions all depending on the person, and by not showing why, you get a forced character.

It's why the 3.0 character suck. They've changed, but you don't know why/how. It's just a change and you need to fanwank the rest.

Soryu is a complex character, but most people think she's just a tsuntsun.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VJ0doO3VFjc
I can't find one that isn't a dub.

Anyway, asuka is complex in the sense that her behavior and personality is 99% because of traumatic past events.
For instance, she distances herself from childish things and tries to grow up too fast because of the memories of her parents.
She uses her piloting skill to establish her identity, and she even wears the hair-clips to further identify herself, and then there's the color red, everything is red with asuka, she also uses the color scheme to carve out a strong sense of identity for herself, she also strives to be better than everybody else at piloting (among other things) in order to stand out, which makes her unable to connect with others because she sees them as lower than her.

People only really like asuka because they see themselves in her.
>>
>>101471137
To be fair I think it's just a few really deluded waifufags in this thread.

Some people defend having a waifu by telling themselves that he/she's real or realistically portrayed. In the end, Asuka is just as real as Pen-Pen. They are all equally unreal and far away from being a real, human person.

Just a few examples doesn't prove your point, when EVA is a complex enough series to recount or fanwank everything you need.
Your examples do prove that she isn't complex but fairly simple, aren't those all "normal" things for a character to have?
It's the cliched 14-year old girl in a nutshell isn't it?

When you throw in the drama of her past, and you realize it's all black inbetween then and there, you realize that something is wrong since it chains the character to an event and handwaves away all other potential development in the meantime.
You can't have a character be defined entirely by one event. That way you get shallow and simple characters, no matter how well portrayed.

I don't think this:
>People only really like asuka because they see themselves in her.
is true either. The truth and you know it, is the sex-appeal more than anything else. Asuka outnumbers every other character in the amount of sexual doujins, fanfiction and art - it's what they want outta the character.

Evangelion isn't a pure all-character show, scene for scene Asuka has more fanservice than any other character. Naked pointless scenes don't lack.

>Soryu is a complex character, but most people think she's just a tsuntsun.
This, and this includes Asuka fans.

But I think her complexity is overrated by some few. Maybe she'll look complex compared to Lucky Star, but anime doesn't have a very high standard for complexity.... Asuka isn't below it if that makes sense, but not remarkably higher either.

You know character complexity isn't really something to measure characters by anyway. You can say Yui from K-ON! is as complex as Asuka by virtue of you getting to know Yui over a long time, even bits of her past that define her now etc...
Yet Yui is far simpler isn't she?

Asuka isn't a hard to understand character, you don't exactly need to churn your noggin or look inside yourself to understand it, or even become philosophical to gain a grasp on what just went on. Like that, she's simple. A well-told, but simple character nevertheless.

You know what, I don't care. We're all on the same side and though I wish you guys could see that Soryu is the superior Asuka, it's not like she's coming back anytime soon.

This is what Anno has done to all the fanbases with the Rebuilds. He retconned all of our waifus.

I think she's what Asuka should be, she's more like a real person that understands they have flaws and accept that, and even then they have trouble doing something with it

>>101472941
>people arguing the opposite
you're just wrong
>>
>>101472951
They really need therapy just to function with regular people. Asking them to go above and beyond and try to take on the burden of someone else's problems in addition to their own would just be counterproductive at that stage.
>>
>>101472968
Some times, it can just be bullshit that makes things repetetive. Give Shikinami some time, in 4.0 she'll be a lot better, but as of now Shikinami is just THAT much superior to Soryu in everything, she's made real progress and I don't see why you can't accept that.
Shikinami is well told and will be better told still.

I want to be hyped for 4.0, but I just can't since there aren't any trailers. No one knows what the fuck is going to happen. That preview at the end of 3.0 was nothing more than a little cgi tech demo, that probably won't even be in the movie.

Anyone else feel this way?
>>
>>101473400
I hope it makes it in the movie. That alone would make me feel ok with considering all of Rebuild dead and striken from the record.

>>101473104
>Give Shikinami some time, in 4.0 she'll be a lot better
That's my biggest hope in the moment given that she may get a backstory.
>>
>>101473017
Soryu felt more like a real person to me. Shikinami and all the other Rebuild characters constantly reminded me that I was watching a cartoon.

>>101473104
>she's made real progress
What progress. She's still hung up over gaki-Shinji after 14 years oh and she got angel powers along the way too.

>Give Shikinami some time, in 4.0 she'll be a lot better
She might, and if she does then maybe I'll change my mind. But relying on what may happen in the future is not a sufficient basis in calling Shikinami superior to Soryu.

>>101473633

She grew up. She's more responsible, self-aware and could sacrifice EVA02. Just because she thinks shinji is a brat (he is!), doesn't devalue what she's done. She also grew a lot in 2.0.

"Shinji renounced the world where all hearts had melted into one and accepted each other unconditionally. His desire... to live with 'others' -- other hearts that would sometimes reject him, even deny him. That is why the first thing he did after coming to his senses was to place his hands around Asuka's neck. To feel the existence of an 'other'. To confirm (make sure of) rejection and denial."

>>101482688
Nah, there's other stuff I took from it, but I think that was one of the main themes in the story; Shinji's relationship to women, and how he is basically a dormat to women and authority figures in general.
>>
>>101460268
this
>>
>>101482848
He's just a doormat period. It's telling that you fixated on that aspect of it though.
>>
>>101482967
>blowjob lips
>she blows them all
I missed that
>>
>>101482980
That aspect was related to the subject at hand. He also has issues with his father, and lacking a mother in his life, he searches for loving mother figures, but none of the women he meets fit that role.

Hell, the idea of motherhood is huge in the whole series.
>>
>>101483100
Motherhood yeah, Shinji being a doormat too, but:
>NGE is about how women boss around men far too much, and shitty things result of it
is a pretty specific interpretation. when it was just human interaction in general.
>>
>>101483257
It's a pretty realistic interpretation actually. The only male character who bosses Shinji around is Gendo, and even then he barely does, saying nothing to Shinji for most of the series.
>>
>>101483338
I guess you're right that women get to have a greater weight in the story than the men (it's one of the things I found cool about it). Among the kids it's Asuka & Rei, with the adults Ritsuko & Misato, even older there's Yui, Naoko & Kyoko. But I have a problem characterizing Eva as a show about 'poor little men, if only women weren't there to ruin things for them'.
>>
>>101484133
EVA is what happens when you take the cast of a typical mecha and genderbend them while giving each character a mental disorder to boot.
>>
>>101483338
But Gendo's influence on Shinji is ultimately is the most detrimental
>>
>>101484255
There's more to it than that. But yeah, I always thought that's an interesting take.

He's a key animator actually. The dogma fight was storyboarded by him too.

>>101487510
Probably because he has his own series to take care of. Seeing how often /a/ tells me he's supposedly an Asukafag, he would probably go the Anima route and turn her into an EVA/Angel by the second Rebuild.

I was being rhetorical, but I wasn't aware he storyboarded the dogma fight. That part was actually pretty cool despite the fact shinji was being an idiot. I would agree with the consensus around here that 3.0 was mostly garbage, but the climax and falling action was actually pretty enthralling, especially with the soundtrack.

It was way before that, like I said, in retrospect it was pretty mild, specially considering there are similiar things going on now but that won't be going away. It was just tiresome because there's not that many picks like that so it was just variations of the same thing over and over again.

Also can we agree that kitty eva is worst grill?
