Not bad for a normal fag entry level list. Not being sarcastic either. It was a basic toonami/adultswim list.

Berserk is really not that great, and neither is Guts. This seemed to be an anime list, not manga.

God dammit stop giving Eva attention on shit websites and playing it the rebuilds on toonami I just want to enjoy my favorite franchise without being associated with retarded edgy casuals who think its the most 2deep and philosophical thing ever made. It's fucking not and I just really like the mecha and angels and have an attachment to show from my childhood.

This is the most hit or miss shit I have ever seen. Honestly the only thing that really pissed me off was seeing Shinji as #1 and Goku at #3.

This is honestly how I'd make the list, in no particular order, pleb tastes or not characters usually aren't the main reason I watch something:

1.Setsuna Sakurazaki
2.Jack Rakan
3.Lain
4.Rika Furude
5.Rena Ryuugu
6.Maebara Keichii
7.Ayumu Kasuga
8.Kenshiro
9.Chihiro Fujisaki
10 Joseph Joestar
11. Homura Akemi
12. Devilman
13. Sakura Kinomoto
14. General Armstrong
15. Chisame Hasegawa
16. Char
17. Argo Gullskii
18. Part 1 Dio Brando
19. Ira Gamagoori
20. Jinmen

True but it feels like it gets more casual attention by the day, the original series aired 19 years ago, like jesus fucking christ.

One day after Anno butchers the 4th rebuild of my beloved franchise maybe then people will start to forget and the ride will finally end.

Rebuild, no matter how bad in the eyes of the fans of the original series will only lead to more casual attention. Eva will never die, there's just too much money in that sweet sweet merch.

Rei is more a bitter, sad girl that knows she feels that way because of her own limited existence. The idea about her being a goddess is something she doesn't know, and it's even possible she's not in the know about who's she's clone of.
When you first see her, things like that don't fit the character at all in Ep1, it's something you (and Rei) piece together as we go. Rei's obvious development is largely social in nature, where she's a girl that can express herself "naturally" but not socially, which is why Ep6 I think, would mark a turning point where she can show off a nice smile in such a situation.

From there it's in tandem with the others that Rei can pick at her own relationships more.
>>
>>101559507
>Rei is more a bitter, sad girl that knows she feels
She literally doesn't feel, she is a doll.
At least not until Rebuild, which has turned into an unmitigated disaster anyway.
>>
lol IGN and clickbait

>>101557187
>>101557229
Maybe it's because of Rebuild?

Everyone and their mother has these huge expectations for Rei because she's such a huge name in the franchise, even people who don't like the character seem to admit that, and 3.0 does everything but deliver.

It's not a good reason IMO since Asuka's performance in 3.0 isn't exactly noteworthy either, it's more that there's less expectations for Asuka and as such easier to deliver.
>>
>>101559587
>She literally doesn't feel, she is a doll.
She feels you dolt. She doesn't express herself well is her problem.
>>
>>101559587
Why do you hate Rei so much you need to lie so obviously?

It's really unfair that the so called eva "fan"-base is filled with people who are outright jealous of parts of eva itself so it has to continuously demean it.

She doesn't express things or understand other people's emotions. She doesn't have any, she doesn't even understand the concept of emotion.

While reading, I was thinking many things
>I wonder what /vp/'s reaction would be if Goku was high up there

>I wonder what /vp/'s reaction would be if Shinji was #1
>>
>>101559833
>She doesn't express things or understand other people's emotions.
What? That's exactly what she does. Even better than most. It's why Rei of all people is able to reach out to the children, even Asuka and try to give them a hand.

Rei understands the concept of both emotion and feeling, the whole idea is that she's so brought down by the weight of the system controlling her that being expressive and extroverted makes no sense.
Rei literally believes she's living a lie, which is true to a point. Someone who is born to die should have no need for friends, for having friends would mean you would lose them in the end.
Coincidentally (not really!), this is Rei's fear by the end of the series. It's classic need vs want. Rei's and the viewers logical side might feel that Rei doesn't need all those comfy things, that she would be better off living as a stoic in a room with only the bare necessities of life, but Rei herself that she wants bonds.

So many people miss the point about Rei it's outright sickening, even Anno, Sadamoto and the VA has to make the statement that Rei's problem isn't that she feels or doesn't have emotion, but that she's piss-poor at expressing them.

Also you just suck at captcha's, only one of the words are real captchas. It's like your first day on 4chan or with reCaptcha or something.
