Why did they make Kaji gay? Does Eva have a large gay fanbase or something?

>Does Eva have a large gay fanbase or something?
Both gay and fujoshi, yes.

But Kaji's not gay in Rebuild, he's just being a dick in that scene.
>>
>>101499950
OP, you ARE the large gay fanbase.
>>
>>101499950
Kaoru appears in exactly ONE episode, and is the most popular anime character in the world. That should tell you something about Eva's fanbase.

I like a lot of shows with large fujo fanbases too. I-It's not like I watch them for the guys or anything.

Welp, time to start listening to Depache Mode and Lady GaGa.

Ever since End of Eva, Anno has been trolling the fanbase. Because Eva is so big that he knows he can literally kill everyone and completely shit on every character and the Eva fans will still buy the shit out of everything he makes.

What, I'm not joking.
>>
But aren't all Eva fans are faggots?

This is what landwhales actually believe

>or even Shinji

And even though Eva was so successful, you could argue that some characters from other series were more well known or popular than any character in Eva. Like Goku from Dragon Ball or Usagi from Sailor Moon or Sakura from CardCaptor Sakura, etc
>>
>>101500134
He's far, faaaar from being that.

It's more that his fanbase is braindead with no standards and Gainax/Khara absolutely loves pimping Kaworu for some reason.
>>
>>101500036
He's not just being a dick. The writers made him act like a full blown homo for fan service. NGE Kaji never said or did anything like that. He was a calm cool double agent and acted like it. Rebuild seriously spread its ass cheeks and took a shit on everything, especially Ritsuko's haircut. I found Kaji to be an excellent character and an important one in NGE, but he has been nonexistant and most likely dead after 3.33. Mari seems like she is just there for fan service too, but she could still come back and be important in the next movie. Kaji is dead. They turned him gay and killed him. He got fucked hardest by rebuild.

You don't mean that, as long as you know Rei exists.

I can see why people hate Rei, but she really hasn't changed THAT much. She still blindly takes orders from Gendou and doesn't talk very much. I think they fucked up Asuka and Rei equally.
>>
>>101502082
Meh, Kaji is not shown yet, but it leaves room for the imagination. He was cool in NGE and the manga, but he dies.
He could still be alive in Rebuild, mark my words. You just don't know.

He's not "fucked" by Rebuild as much as he is ignored. Which is given how shit Rebuild is, actually a good thing since it doesn't warp the character into something retarded.

The oft-cited example of being ruined is Rei, imagine if they had built up Kaji a little in 1.0 and 2.0 and then take a massive dump on him in 3.0? Now that's being fucked, it's better to die cleanly in EVA than being degraded with bad characterization and slander while being half-alive.

Kaji is just another example of characters Rebuild neglected for gay fanservice.
>>
Anno is gag and wants Shinji to take Kaji and Kaworu's dicks in every whole.

That's it.
>>
>>101502350
Wait why would you hate Rei? You don't hate Kaji because Rebuild did it bad did you?

>I think they fucked up Asuka and Rei equally.
>, but she really hasn't changed THAT much
Wrong. You'd only say that if you don't know anything about either character.

Both are neglected, but in contrast with Rei they're actually not fucking up Asuka's character. They're doing the opposite.
>>
>>101502350
You're the model EVA fan. Dumb, doesn't think things have changed, and is probably only in it for the pretty imagery.
Contrary to what many believe, they've actually spent more time on Rei in 3.0 than many other characters in Rebuild, it's that they spent it in wholly negative ways.
Rei's character along with everyone elses isn't summed up with taking orders from Gendo and not talking very much.

I actually speculate it's partly due to half-minded fans such as yourself, that the characters are like this in Rebuild.
>>
>>101502350
>I think they fucked up Asuka and Rei equally.
0/10 don't post in an EVA-thread ever again.
>>
>>101502420
I don't hate Rei. I meant to say hate what she's become. You think they are improving Asuka's character? I'm not a Reifag or Asukafag I liked them both equally in NGE.
>>
>>101502567
All right.
>You think they are improving Asuka's character?
Yeah, in a superficial but effective way. Imagine if you were to select a character in EVA, and bestow upon it powers, gifts and importance - that's Asuka.
Asuka in Rebuild is being protected by just showing cool stuff the character does. It's a good portrayal.

It's a lot better than being portrayed negatively and then badly to boot. For Asuka in rough objective terms, it's a step up. Before where she wasn't relevant, she now is.
The idea that they are fucked up "equally" is almost offensive when you think about it, because it neglects that Asuka has been given a great boon whilst Rei has haven her boons taken away.

You're free to like/hate either, but if we could be correct when we say what happened, it would be easier.

I don't think I'm the model Eva fan. I think the adults were way cooler than the kids. I might be dumb though.

>>101502567
If you go to fanfiction.net, and pick any random doujin from an Asuka fan, you're getting a Shikinami variant. That is the "Mary-Sue" portrayal where nothing is blamed on the character, the character is suddenly made important but for no reason, and given super-powers. It's like a power-fantasy, like some fantasize about themselves.
"What if I was strong, right or the president of the world?", it's that kind of thing only applied to Shikinami.

If you've ever watched Gundam SEED, it's like when some of the children main characters are more or less inexplicably made generals and leaders. It's power of plot AKA the power of God (the writer!) that puts them there.

Rebuild gave up on the characters in 3.0, so what's left to improve on from the past is how they're showed to the audience and what is said about the character.
This is why you hate what Rei has become, but don't do so for Asuka.
>>
>>101502812
I don't like what happened to Asuka either. She has become everything that was bad about her in NGE.
>>
>>101503028
But that's wrong you retard
Asuka was lying in a fucking hospital bed not wanting to live any more because of how much of a failure she was
that is all gone in Rebuild, she has become everything good about Asuka and even more, while still retaining a bitch attitude - that's literally it!

Why do I even bother replying?
>>
>>101503028
Rebuild does away with Asuka's insecurities and severe imperfections as a person starting 2.0. Possibly it even retconned the whole trauma, but we don't know that.
In 2.0, Asuka starts off strong with doing something she never did before in NGE, look inwards to see problems and then try to fix them. Shinji, Rei and Misato could do that but not Asuka.
3.0 does the exact same thing by continuing that, only now it adds some cool stuff like super-strength, and the sense that she's moved on, just like her Voice Actor says.

It's not that she's become everything bad about her in NGE, no no. Everything bad about her in NGE has been removed and replaced with strong positives.
Shikinami is tailored to be a popular character.
