Hello /a/. Let's make an Eva/EoE thread.
As the main subject, let's analyse the picture. What purpose was it supposed to serve. What was the symbolism behind the forehead vagina.
Let's hear your theories.
got pussy on da mind yo
A common theory is that it symbolizes returning to the womb.
Every human was returning to their creator, Lilith.
Because Rei is fucked in the head.
And why is there a eye in the middle of it? I love Eva but so sometimes I think they just threw a bunch of weird sexual imagery in just to add to the 2deep factor
Is there a reason why the vagina was able to spread over her hair?
Just saw Rebuild 3,0, I think it's interesting what they're doing with the series-
any theories or ideas how they're going to end it in 4.0? I find Gendo's part in the story to be the most interesting atm.
>maybe shinji won't be such a fuck up
>make asuka won't be a massive bitch
>maybe rei will have an opinion on something
Honestly I think this is the case with most imagery in Eva.
I don't think it has any real meaning, it's just something that grabs your eye.
It obviously symbolizes a mindfuck.
She's the mother god of all humanity. It's very, very obvious. It should be the first thing anybody thinks of.
The "third eye" is a common thing.
And we've been discussing it daily for months, where were you?
Anno is fucking with your mind
I just never got around to watching it, is all.
Vaginas represent maternity, because Rei is Lilith
Forehead eye represents enlightenment, because Rei is a god now
It also looks cool.
Not that anon, but I wasn't here for the generals.
Was there anything else you guys came up with besides the idea of the rebuilds being a sequel to EoE?
Is the "forehead vagina" also a common thing? Maybe the "Third Eye" and the "Four" Head Vagina?
What is the symbolism for yogurt in hand and boobs?
I'm pretty sure they just combined the two for effect.
No, it was mostly shitstorms everywhere criticizing the timeskip and cat eva and too much gay piano.
Anno's not so subtle message for the otaku to stop jerking it to fictional anime characters.
>stop jerking it to fictional anime characters
>"I'm so fucked up"
>blurry tits in the background
Yeah, that must be it.
>"I'm so fucked up"
No joke I didn't fap for 9 days after I first saw that scene, didn't last long though
One of the earliest pics of Mari we have.
You need both sperm and an egg to make an embryo anon.
I forgot that was a theory
uh, nobody is actually discussing it as much as criticizing it.
Here have a sample:
This guy: >>101580298
is a motherfucking neanderthal for liking "what they're doing with the series", AKA moving it to it's ruin.
Closest Shinji ever got
Sadly wasn't Asuka vag
No everyone shat on it
That is the worst fanwank. I'm sure Anno had Misato advertise "sabisu" every episode and include sabisu to make people not fap to the characters.
>moving it to it's ruin
i'm sure looking forward to the entirely new ending they've proposed :^)
>AKA moving it to it's ruin
You know that's actually Anno's objective, right? He hates the fanbase so he wants to fuck up what we love.
What is the symbolirm for THIS??
Does Gendo ate her arm??
She's losing the grip on her AT field.
Can't get nuthin done when you got pussy on yo mind
>He hates the fanbase
Don't use emoticons.
The rebuilds are all the proof you need
Anno doesn't hate the fanbase. Stop spreading this shit. Eva is just on the level of any generic mecha now.
People say that about everything about NGE, "I don't like that part so therefore Anno is trolling me."
Rebuild is a result of Anno being uninspired and many staff members pitching in their ideas and making a clusterfuck, not because they intentionally want to make something bad. If anything it's all fanservice.
This is sort of a bad way to make a thread.
>i'm sure looking forward to the entirely new ending they've proposed :^)
oh yeah it'll be awwesome :P
God I hate this shit.
In reality though, the Rebuilds are more his fantasy journey more than I HAET U to the fanbase.
NGE > EoE > 1 > shit > 2 > emptiness > 3

Mari a shit
Stop using emoticons, even ironically.
I can't argue with anything in this list.
>Stop using emoticons, even ironically.
How about an image that says the same thing basically?
"Oh yeah, the new ending they've proposed will be awesomse!!"
it's fucking over.
A couple of days back I asked if the rebuilds were worth watching. They (for obvious reasons)felt a bit rushed with the plot but I really liked how the animation looked but they didn't quite have the same feel as in the originals. What did you people think of the rebuilds?
meh, I loved the series, and EoE too actually,
and whilst I wasn't originally too happy with the whole '14 year jump' and some of the angel redesigns I AM nonetheless interested AND excited to see what they're going to do with the final movie.
In my opinion a lot of the excellence of the series had to do with the mystery, the implied deeper religious subtexts and the sense of 'not knowing'. This has for the most part been retained in the Rebuilds but I still think that it would be great if they expanded on, or revealed just one or two more secrets in part 4.0.
Not even close to the quality of the original but still good enough to be worth the ride.
>I AM nonetheless interested AND excited to see what they're going to do with the final movie.
>In my opinion a lot of the excellence of the series had to do with the mystery, the implied deeper religious subtexts and the sense of 'not knowing'.
You are mistaking "there isn't any fucking thing there" for "mystery".
The biggest "reveal" of 3.0 was "HAHAHA THIS IS GOING TO BE WAY SHITTIER THAN YOU THOUGHT!"
I wanna suck the cum off of Shinji's hand, spit it on Asukas tits, and mix that with my own cum.
And then make Shinji eat it.
There's a good mystery, and then there's "lol we don't have shit, so let's pretend it's a mystery".
You can figure out the mystery right now: it's a pretense for making a timeloop scenario where Shinji is eternally gaying it up with Kaworu.
Don't kid yourselves. All rebuilds are fan service bullshit.
Fair enough. He may not be doing it out of anger but the rebuilds feel like there missing everything that was unique about Eve and are just another giant robot movie
First two are all rite, par for the course mostly, but the third is absolute shit.
But the production values are nice at least.
>Rebuild is a result of Anno being uninspired and many staff members pitching in their ideas and making a clusterfuck, not because they intentionally want to make something bad.
They do intentionally to make some parts worse, though. Look at Rei.
Can't explain that. There is no possible way you can make something so inferior without actually intending to.
because I like Evangelion
>You are mistaking "there isn't any fucking thing there" for "mystery".
well I can't prove you wrong there, but even so I liked the fact that there was a lot left to the audience's interpretation, if perhaps a little too much, hence the last sentence of my post.
>a timeloop scenario where Shinji is eternally gaying it up with Kaworu.
oh god, please no
Forgot to mention didn't he come right out and say the rebuilds were going to be dumbed down I remember reading on wikipieda he was going to make the movies "more accessible to fans"
>oh god, please no
It has already happened you fucking fool.
What do you think the point of 3.0 was??
Everybody dies at the end except for Shinji, Rei and Asuka who repopulate the planet after the third impact.
There are vaginas everywhere through the series to remind you of Yui.
So Yui is just kicking it in outerspace while all of humanity is dead? What is she going to do next? She has the lance of longinous.
If you have any love for Evangelion, and aren't just feeding of it's fetishes, you wouldn't love Rebuild.
I didn't say I loved Rebuild, that won't stop me from watching 4.0 though.
>oh god, please no
....you don't know do you? It's basically Devilman.
It's in ANIMA. It's in the Campus shit. It's in all the Khara pinoffs.
The character Kaworu seems to be based on, also loops because he loves the main character.
I'm sorry anon. This also affects the main series, since Anno said NGE Kaworu is literally the same as Rebuild Kaworu....
It's like you didn't watch episode 24 and EoE.
Kawoshin has always been here and will always be here as long as Anno is in charge.
It's random supplementary imagery about motherhood, sexuality and some third eye bullshit.
Don't take this shit literally, it's imagery
Fix your aspect ratio m8
I came to shit in your thread, nigface. Also, for reals, why does errybodies see the reign before they get all tangy?
Also, did gendo died?
I'm fucking tired.
Wow auto correct... Teh rei...
Are you fucking retarded?
Go back to tumblr
Sorry, I don't understand?
>please don't ridicule me
Is liliths job undertaker?
Does shinji even dream in the first place?
>NGE = EoE
>Berserk 01 > 02 > 01
>Yui Ikari > all
>Shinji x Asuka
Anything else is correct though
Did you just not watch Evangelion or read his post, or are you this dense?
There is no timeloop bullshit in the original. Especially nothing concerning Kaworu, he's evne fully exempt from the last two episodes.
Not a single line of dialogue.
Kaworu is the cancer that killed EVA m8. From within.
The retarded kawoshin-fanbase that go "b-but muh kawoshin was always tehre" miss the point like you do entirely. I've never seen a crowd more ignorant.
Yes. Arm is kill.
We used to use emoticons back when we were cute girls, you know. :)
Half of the things on this list are shit.
5/10 would not call back
You were never cute you lying whore!
Take a gander at all this mad.
Anno disagrees with your shit taste.
oh wow, an EVA thread. I just finished rewatching the original show/End of Evangelion for the first time in over ten years. I used to think it was a masterpiece, and really liked how "deep" it was (I didn't understand half of it back then), but now it just felt average. I could totally see how it influenced the anime industry, thinking about it. Did Evangelion popularize the tsundere archetype and the emotionless girl archetype (not sure what the correct term is)?
Being right = mad now?
He really doesn't though
The tsun archetype was present in anime way before Eva released.
A Rei archetype was the one that was popularized, though.
You both have shit taste. Pen pen wins the evangelions.
But for real though, kaworufags need to learn. Nobody wins the Eva's until anno sudokus, or shinji mans up.
What if anno is a closet fag?
Yes, you're absolutely right.
Shinji loves you're waifu.
Anno ships Shinji x you're waifu.
Anno's wife ships Shinji x you're waifu.
Everyone in Japan ships Shinji x you're waifu.
Do you tell this to yourself to help you sleep at night?
Have some cake, delusional faggot.
Call it mad if you want, but you know it's true.
Show some self-respect and accept it.
>Pen pen wins the evangelions.
I'm okay with this.
Anno's boner for Ikuhara-chan has been pretty apparent over the years.
You're either a troll or another disgusting fujoshi.
You think Eva is all about who Shinji loves or doesn't.
You're the most shallow fan alive.
>There are people on /a/ who think Anno doesn't ship KaworuxShinji
I'm only proving the delusional faggots who think Kawoshin isn't a thing wrong
So why do you faggots fight over who he should love and deny who he does love.
It's obviously a troll, anon.
Except it's not, and I never said it was.
Good job shoving words into my mouth.
It's the waifufags that think Eva is a fucking harem, pretending Kawoshin doesn't exist because muh self insert
I know this question is asked all the time but I'm going to go ahead and ask it anyways: Should I watch the rebuilds before NGE? I have them all downloaded already but I've yet to get the original series and I'm bored.
That's what you imply by saying "hur ther wuz unly kaowshin to begin with!" even though nobody fucking mentioned it.
You are the waifufag. YOU.
absolutely fucking disgusting
You're my hero.
Don't watch the Rebuilds at all is my advice. Watch NGE+EoE and forget the rest exists.
>Anno's boner for Ikuhara-chan has been pretty apparent over the years.
Still a better love story than Eva.
>implying Eva even had a love story to begin with
I've heard that name so many times, who on earth is he?
The guy Anno based Kaworu off of.
Also the guy who created Utena.
Go back into the thread, anon.
A faggot who is surprised by the homolust in 3.0 needs to go rewatch NGE and refresh his memory. It isn't new, it isn't a recent thing. It's always been here, stop you're bitching.
>You are the waifufag.
You couldn't be more wrong.
I don't shitfling at other characters.
I love Shinji, Rei and Asuka as characters and respect their flaws.
I don't expect Eva to spoonfeed me, I use my fucking head when I watch the series and the Rebuilds (Though, the latter doesn't require much brain power to understand)
What do waifufags do?
Huuuurrr, Rei better than Asuka! fapfapfap
Literal pieces of shit. I love seeing Anno make you butthurt.
Just delete the rebuilds i ended up doing that after I got to the third and realized I couldn't delude myself into thinking these are good anymore
>trying to b8 this hard
I liked Q
Why do Japs hate Asuka?
>Only continuing to prove me right
Japs hate Asuka?
I only recall japs hating Shinji.
Says the delusional faggot who thinks shinji actually loves the only faggot that plays into his actual delusions. Karl is the only one that shows shinji affection of any sort and all Ikari-kun does is get all awkward cuz he's a lowlife that never gets attention.
Karl confirmed for worst girl and enabler. 0/10 would not ship.
B-but, muh yui!
>You couldn't be more wrong.
Your post proves me right. Your delusion is amazing.
3.0 is a bigger part of Rebuild than one episode is of Evangelion.
You try to argue that it was always there, but tell me, did it occupy one full fourth of the original series?
This is your delusion, and it's this kaworufaggotry that makes you worse than the girl waifufags. Nobody denied the existence of Kaworu.
Their shitflinging is something between the two of them, yours is actively ruining the entire show.
Look at what you write here:
>Huuuurrr, Rei better than Asuka! fapfapfap
>Literal pieces of shit. I love seeing Anno make you butthurt.
Stop biting the bait.
>>101579944 see >>101584104
>I don't shitfling at other characters.
>does so in the exact same post
You're avoiding the elephant in the room by pretending it's the same kitten as in the show.
3.0, it's doing the exact thing you do: shitting on other characters to emphasize the only thing you care about, Kawoshin.
If you enable 3.0, you simultaneously admit that Kawoshin is the only thing EVA is for you - one episode out of what, 26?
Don't pretend you aren't schlicking to the concept of them looping time to fuck each other in the ass.
You're worse than the average waifufag. Your entire fandom is cancer.
This is why you don't talk about Rebuild anymore.
>Using the Karl term wrong
>Again bring up best girl shit
Waifufags are truly the cancer of this fanbase.
I don't even know what day it is today. Let's see how deep the rabbit hole goes.
Whoa there buddy, that's some serious implying you're doing there. Didn't your mother teach you better?
Karl is the manga Kaworu, dipshit. Not the anime Kaworu.
It's not a troll. Kaworufags really are this unintelligent.
They're like animals driven only be instincts and desire. (for homolust)
No self-insight. No self-control. Only unashamed stupidity.
They're so nitpicky about their boyfriend...
Why are you participating in fanbase wars? This is basically "SHAFT VS KYOANUS GT RKT CANCERFAGGOTS" troll threads that got those shitposters banned. It's really hilarious seeing you retards scream like maniacs over this bullshit in every single fucking Rebuild thread, but you need to stop already.
It needs to be said. It's better to have it said than for anyone to get involved with beasts disguised as people posting on the internet.
I can't be convinced that these guys are doing anything else besides fucking around with everyone just to start shit.
It's the way they word their posts, their passive aggressiveness, and constant use of "waifufag" that really sets off several alarms.
Nobody on /a/ could possibly be as delusional as these Kaworufags pretend to be, r-right?
>did it occupy one full fourth of the original series?
Your point? Rebuild isn't NGE, your comparisons are fruitless. Shinji's journey becomes the primary focus, and so we get less of Asuka Rei and Misato backstory or by themselves, their most pivotal moments are with Shinji in order for him to develop. Kaworu's increased screentime is natural considering the Shinji-focused route they took.
My problem is the people who bitch about Kawoshin when it was present in episode 24 and EoE. Why are you so mad? You can't argue that it ruins the other characters when they were already sidelined in both 1.0 and 2.0. You have no reason to be so angry unless you didn't enjoy it in the series either. Which is fine, but be honest about it.
>yours is actively ruining the entire show
Because I control what Anno wants and does. Right.
>does so in the exact same post
Where? I have never ONCE done shitflinging at any character in Eva. I actually see the characters as more than fapbait and haremshit unlike a certain group of people.
>Your entire fandom is cancer
Way to generalize. I guess you consider Anno cancer as well for sharing my interests.
>Samefag-kun replies to himself in order to make his trolling attempt successful after he's been told
Please get cancer
>It needs to be said.
You've said it every single eva thread for the past year. If you haven't gotten it out of your system at this point, go make a fucking blog about your little crusade. I can't count how many fucking threads you've derailed spamming fucking essays screaming about how much you hate some fucking faggots. It's blatant shitposting and flaming, which is against the rules.
>Kaworu's increased screentime is natural considering the Shinji-focused route they took.
Funny, that's not true at all. We're missing extremely important stuff from Shinji, especially Leliel and the EVA01 trip, simply because they wanted Kawoshin.
I'm going to make it simple so you understand:
Kawoshin ended up engulfing more than it has any right to. It has affected the quality of the entire anime, and reduced everything to shallow crap.
Note how nobody in this thread is complaining about EoE or 24, those are episodes they praise for existing.
3.0, and you, are the problem. In this thread, you refuse to accept the truth, which is that Kawoshin has corroded the quality of Rebuild and it's ability to actually provide something of it's own.
But Rei is kinda Shinji's mom.
Who is that gaijin landwhale in the background?
>I actually see the characters as more than fapbait and haremshit unlike a certain group of people.
Oh god, I've seen this argument too many times before in past Eva threads.
Yep, this is definitely b8.
Fan base wars? But I'm just discussing my favorite show anon, and Karl is only holding the action back. He's like an even worse version of akemi homura. Always trying to timeline when he's supposed to be dead...
How do we improve this thread and make it better again?
>Where? I have never ONCE done shitflinging at any character in Eva. I actually see the characters as more than fapbait and haremshit unlike a certain group of people.
You like to tell that yourself, but it isn't true.
You don't understand that these characters have been reduced to fapbait and haremshit due to your Kawoshin.
In place of characters evolving from 2.0, they get swept away so Kawoshin can take up a larger portion than it did in NGE, where it was limited to one episode.
Your only concern is Kawoshin. Your singlemindedness is extremely annoying because you keep saying that Kawoshin was always a thing while evading the main point, which is that the focus on Kawoshin has effectively nullified the characters in Rebuild.
There is only, like you put it, fapbait and haremshit left because of it.
Why do you accept this if you see them as something more? Right, because your only concern is Kawoshin.
Now you know what decisions fucked everything up.
You're ridiculous. Also, you forgot the Kaworu pic
I feel a little bad for you
Oh shit, do we need to check our privilege now?
Same way we always do.
You seem to be mistaken. I rarely if ever say this.
I usually take the backseat or just leave.
Both of those bickering retards should get banned, for one. I'm so tired of their shit. So fucking tired.
>We're missing extremely important stuff from Shinji
Again, it's a movie. A much more accessible medium. Shinji trapped within his Eva for 30 minutes would be an excellent opportunity for some development, but it isn't movie material.
>Kawoshin ended up engulfing more than it has any right to
Why? We know how significant Kaworu was to Shinji in NGE, they just had less time to show it. If this is a movie series about Shinji, then it is to be expected Kaworu's role will increase considering his importance to the MC's development.
>Kawoshin has corroded the quality of Rebuild
What transpires in 3.0 that doesn't happen in 24 and EoE? The timelooping? That was in 1.0 and 2.0, where and what is your argument.
>but it isn't movie material.
But Kawoshin is, right? of course.
here is a pic of toji hugging his imouto.
the fuck is timelooping?
>answer is in the same post
Ok today a Mari is fine too
>Kawoshin has affected the quality of the entire anime, and reduced everything to shallow crap.
Do you mean episode 24 made the entire show bad?
Shinji is going back to the womb.
Lilith = mother entity
Third eye = symbol of mystical power
Vagina = also symbol of mystical power, since it endows life
Grotesqueness/surrealism of the imagery = it's the end of the fucking world, achieved by means of some ancient forbidden ritual, the meeting of the sacred and the profane, the culling of all souls, an event of literally Biblical scale beyond mortal comprehension, it would be pretty underwhelming if it were all cold and rational dont'cha think?
giant floating luminescent space motherhood/birthing symbol = Anno really, really liked 2001: A Space Odyssey.
A Mari is always fine.
Is this Asuka enough? I'm just trying to improve this shit thread.
Have we reached that certain chronological moment?
>Again, it's a movie.
Which focuses on Shinji, according to you. But it doesn't focus on Shinji as much as it does on Kawoshin in the end.
The whole "I love you" and Shinji's fragility is gone, yet Kawoshin remains.
As you see, it's not about Shinji at all, since if it were, we'd actually have more Shinji in it.
It's simple. 1 out of 26, versus 1 out of 4. That's 1/26 and 1/4, and since you know math probably, the latter is much, much larger.
The entire focus of the show, has been changed to suit kawoshin - it's no longer about the themes as much as it is to push a ship. It has corroded it.
Nice loli you got there. I got a new one too, do you like her?
>Anno really, really liked 2001: A Space Odyssey.
I wonder if there's any illuminati imagery in EoE.
Do you think so? I don't.
24 made EVA better.
3.0 dooms it.
> The guy Anno based Kaworu off of.
b-but Kaworu is named after Nagisa Oshima
It would appear that we have indeed reached the correct chronological moment.
This thread isn't about Eva anymore, it's about bickering about fanbase wars/waifufags/fapbait/haremfags/youarethecancer! and other trolling buzzwords.
Shit, time to dump.
Sundress Asuka is best Asuka.
>tfw they only had her wear a slutty bikini top and apron in rebuilds instead of this
Forgot your "Sheeple" at the end there. Maybe an "Open your eyes, plebeian" would have helped.
Her human form is deteriorating due to resonance with the original Lilith
It's not movie material? Would have been excellent movie material.
It's probably hard for you to accept that your ship ended up fucking up everything, but probably when you're older and can look back, you'll see that what they did with 3.0 was nothing more than to glorify Kaworu without any reason but to please his fans.
We didn't actually get something out of it other than fanservice.
I was waiting for this.
>they get swept away so Kawoshin..
Asuka in 2.0 was completely sidelined, no backstory, and all her issues in NGE were solved with one little talk to Misato. This was in favor of it being a movie series, they don't have time to focus on every character.
Anno could have still put Kawoshin in a movie where Rei is still here and no timeskip ever occurred. He didn't because who knows.
It's more like you're blaming Kawoshin for everything because you don't like it.
>Right, because your only concern is Kawoshin
Again with the generalizing. Is this all you do? For someone who apparently understood the point of Eva, you really like to assume people act the exact same way based on their similar interests, huh?
Asuka's my second favorite character and I've spent more time on /a/ talking about her than Kawoshin or Kaworu. I don't consider myself an Asukafag because I don't shit on Rei because I like her too.
So much butthurt over one ship.
I have a feeling people wouldn't be so upset if you'd replaced all the Kaworu scenes with Rei (and I mean our Rei, not Rei Q) You guys are just so upset not being pandered to.
But you said it reduced the entire anime to shallow crap.
I wish those cards didn't have such a disgusting border on them.
Just respect the hierarchy: first the husbando, then the daughter
Who wouldn't like her?
>Reifags has the audacity to think Rei will take the faggot's place as the main love interest.
Shinji is at his lowest, most desperate point. His repression leads him to do something on pure, primal impulse that solidifies all of his self-hatred and hopelessness.
It's also a perverse echo of the scene with Asuka in the bedroom during the TV series (Shinji could've snuck in an innocent puppy-love kiss while she was "asleep" but didn't) and is echoed again during the final scene (once again Shinji is in Asuka's presence when she's in an unconscious state and is so emotionally distraught that his feelings escape him in the form of extreme physical expression - only this time it's violent instead of sexual).
>Asuka in 2.0 was completely sidelined, no backstory, and all her issues in NGE were solved with one little talk to Misato. This was in favor of it being a movie series, they don't have time to focus on every character.
Not really, she got a fair amount of time. She will get even more in the next movies. She got little in 3.0, and who knows about 4.0. They were doing something new with everyone, but right now it's only new for the sake of being new.
>Anno could have still put Kawoshin in a movie where Rei is still here and no timeskip ever occurred. He didn't because who knows.
He didn't because he couldn't. The only way to make Kawoshin work after 2.0 is to basically erase the existence of every other character by making them worthless - and shallow - for that purpose, the timeskip and elements such as Rei Q was crafted.
I'm not blaming Kawoshin per se, but it's clear that it's the element of focus in 3.0, and therefore also the reason why 3.0 turned out like it is.
The rest of your post is meaningless as long as you can't accept the truth, that Kawoshin takes far more resources in terms of time and story than it did in NGE - with less meaning for both characters to boot.
What am I looking at here?
That's literally the only thing that goes beyond Asuka
That wasn't my point. I'm just saying, if they'd used Rei or even Asuka in place of Kaworu being a romantic interest, I doubt half the people complaining that "Eva has been reduced to pandering shlock" would be saying such.
They don't like Kaworu and don't like he's considered a main character now along with Shinji/Asuka/Rei/Mari.
Oh I guess I missed that
I wanted to pretend there was an Eva thread on /a/ where people actually discuss Eva
Now guess which anime I was referring to.
Hint: It's not NGE because NGE was finished in the 90's
Rebuild Shinji is about as strait as a circle.
Just like the rest of the cast.
>there is no pics of loli Mari doing cute daughteru things with Shinji and Asuka
They only have their delusions to blame then.
Well there's uh... that weird scene in the Prime Minister's office with the swinging pendulum that no one ever talks about
I dunno I'm not too well-versed on Stanley Kubrick conspiracy theories
Do you not know what a bra is?
That's the lie you tell yourself to justify the atrocity that was 3.0.
It's a lie you'll never be able to prove as well. Had it been any character, it would be the same disaster.
Stop saying it. You know it's not true.
>But it doesn't focus on Shinji as much as it does on Kawoshin in the end.
What is Shinji's entire monologue when he's looking at the stars? You're only seeing what you want to see.
>That's 1/26 and 1/4
So you're saying Rebuild is destroyed because an aspect of Eva you didn't like is now given more focus.
Because YOU don't like Kawoshin, Rebuild is ruined. Because it doesn't pander to YOU.
I think I understand you waifufags now.
I'll never complain about your delusions ever again, I now realize this is all you can do to cope with a series that you never even liked in the first place.
>I wanted to pretend there was an Eva thread on /a/ where people actually discuss Eva
Dare to dream, anon. Dare to dream.
We could try again later tonight. This thread probably is beyond saving.
Really? Half the problem people have with 3.0 is that Rei is "dead" and Rei Q took her place.
Have Rei not be stuck inside Unit 01 for the entire film, there goes half of people's complaining about the film.
Why is her head so huge in that picture.
>That wasn't my point. I'm just saying, if they'd used Rei or even Asuka in place of Kaworu being a romantic interest, I doubt half the people complaining that "Eva has been reduced to pandering shlock" would be saying such.
Do you even have a single fact to back that up? You don't.
As long as there is the timeskip, the shitting over other characters to justify that "X" ship, there would still be outrage.
This isn't a good defense from you. Why is it so hard to accept that what happened happened? It shouldn't cost you much of your pride to see that 3.0 now is pandering schlock for one part of the fanbase, at the cost of everything else.
>We didn't actually get something out of it other than fanservice.
That's all any of the Rebuilds have been about. Who gives a shit. They don't even fucking matter. Who fucking cares if one character gets more fanservice in a movie where everything's been stupid shit the whole time anyways? It's just silly AU garbage that I doubt Khara put much thought into.
Stop getting so mad about it. Even the way you talk about this is so pathetic, "When you're older you can understand my teachings, WAKE UP, your fanbase is the cancer that kills Eva and makes the show bad, ACCEPT THE TRUTH. I AM THE TRUTH."
I bet Mari is someone cool to hang out with.
No Kyoko jokes please
>What is Shinji's entire monologue when he's looking at the stars? You're only seeing what you want to see.
It's almost nothing, and like you may understand, it's tying into Kawoshin.
>So you're saying Rebuild is destroyed because an aspect of Eva you didn't like is now given more focus.
No. I'm saying it received so much focus that it squeezed out everything else. You're evading.
My advice is to stop making those assumptions, you're only running away.
To better convey her disgust.
Don't worry anon, they'll be coming in boatloads once the obvious reveal is made in 4.0
>Who fucking cares if one character gets more fanservice in a movie where everything's been stupid shit the whole time anyways?
A lot of people apparently.
SHUT THE FUCK UP
>Do you even have a single fact to back that up?
Here's the problem with that, you don't know that.
It's a theory you can't test or prove, it's not proving a single thing.
There's a lot of issues with 3.0 and that one is just a problem for reifags and then it's a general one.
So yes, really.
...and you think this is OK? For it to be just fanservice?
Then yes man, you actually are the problem.
That's where your mistake is
NGE has priority
The only people in this thread is a kowarufag, an antikowarufag, and the dumpers.
And if they do care they should get the fuck over it and stop crying like fucking babies.
Has Anno ever made anything that easy?
Asuka has the best facial expressions.
I'm sure Asuka would also love to play with Mari and that redheaded girl that came along with her.
EVA IS NO MY DEEP THOUGHTFUL ANIME ANYMORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Newsflash, it was never deep. The only thing it did was having the characters have mental problems and that's not a theme anymore in Rebuild. It's like you people can't pay attention that Rebuilds AREN'T THE TV SHOW. They're not trying to be, that's they all the sexual stuff is gone from the movies too.
The first movies were fanservice too. Every piece of Evangelion merchandise after EOE was fanservice and silly nonsense, silly games, silly manga, silly pachinko games. Stop getting so mad about it. Get over it. It's not fucking important.
No one finds love in NGE.
His "monologue" isn't even a monologue. He's speaking to someone. Guess who.
That's also not what he's saying. Whether you like it or not is besides the point, what is the point is that there is so much of it that it's actively making everything else worse.
You understand the waifufags, because you are one yourself. If you have any self-insight, you'd understand.
You don't just mess up other characters for a ship. That's a no-go zone. You expect that of doujins and fanfiction, but not in the real deal.
What if it had been the ship you aren't a fan of? Wouldn't it be bad then?
You just like it because you like Kawoshin, you're oblivious to the destruction it has wrought.
>it's tying into Kawoshin
You keep acting like any interaction between Kaworu and Shinji is the worst thing in the world, as if your butthurt couldn't be any more obvious.
What would you have done then? Have Kaworu appear for 17 minutes randomly in the movie and then die? What would be the fucking point in that? Stupidest shit I ever heard. It's a movie, his screentime is increased so the audience will actually feel something when he dies.
If you were the director, you'd do the same.
>caring about Rebuild at all
At least I got some sexy fanart. Look at this shit.
"Everything is fanservice"
You realize this is proving you wrong right? You're just agreeing but saying "get over it".
why does EoE rei cares about shinji?
He was originally supposed to appear back in episode 11-14 as a transfer student, too.
>"We're fucking thirty or something. Can you please stop acting like a fourteen year old and commit to this relationship already?"
Well that doesn't make Rebuild Asumari any more plausible sadly, but LAS was the pilot ship in NGE and we do have Manga Ending.
The plot requires it and the master demands it.
I don't think I do. That's your accusation which is false.
His original 17 minutes were superior to his appearance in Rebuild, so yeah, that is what I'd do.
What I wouldn't do for certain, and I hope you agree, is fuck over every single character so you can focus on Kawoshin.
As for people "caring", don't make me laugh. People laughed in the cinemas when the guy died. They didn't care. They found it overly melodramatic.
It doesn't succeed where you claim it does, it makes things worse, since everything beforehand makes people not take it seriously.
>If you were the director, you'd do the same.
I can tell you I wouldn't.
I'd try being original.
I didn't say "everything".
Go write another angry essay about how the Pachinko games are literally the cancer killing Eva and destroying the series and ruining your life, screaming and crying and yelling and shiutposting in threads about it for a fucking year. And then pat yourself on the back for being so proud of yourself.
The manga ending didn't end with Shinji being with anyone though.
He met Kensuke and Asuka randomly then went on his way. The end.
>You just like it because you like Kawoshin
More like I actually watched NGE, and was expecting it to be present in Rebuild as well since it was so pivotal to Shinji's development.
>You don't just mess up other characters for a ship.
In case you haven't noticed, characters were messed up since 1.0. Keeping the medium in mind, it can't be helped.
>People laughed in the cinemas when the guy died.
Dumb ass American otaku's opinions are so important.
>my emotional reaction to a movie is the only objective one
It's really bad in 3.0 tbh.
Because there you know that the movie exists for that purpose only, not really to build the characters or to improve anything, but just to sell a ship.
It's made a lot of people butthurt, and the original series worked with those 17 minutes. It was good. It was effective.
3.0 isn't effective for Shinji as a character other than making him a turbo-depressed kid. It's like blind violence. Turns somebody on, but it's still blind violence - pointless.
>but LAS was the pilot ship in NGE
>people actually believe this
And loads of nips cried in the cinema including males. How about that?
He actually thought Rebuilds were good "until kowaru ruined everything". Even retroactively.
Anon, we're shipping. You are shipping. Everyone is shipping. People pair Asuka with her daughter and Shinji with an asexual eldritch abomination with human looks.
but it makes absolutely no sense
...aaand you're resorting to insults. Good job, the game is over now. You can stop posting.
Now you're just being upset kid.
Watching Mari push Asuka's buttons until she's red in the face would be hilarious to watch. Timeskip series when.
I don't really give a shit if it's a crack ship, it still makes me happy.
Shinji and Asuka's relationship is left completely ambiguous in both the manga and NGE. It was never really solid to begin with and we have no idea where it goes after the events of the ending.
It's scientifically proven than fishes in a pond get accustomed to baits and spot them in a second after sometime. Please stop making yourself ridiculous. Enjoy an Asuka.
There's a difference between present and all-defining for the series.
You can't justify the jump in screentime it's had.
You keep confusing merely "present" when it's more than just present. It's a whole movie.
>In case you haven't noticed, characters were messed up since 1.0. Keeping the medium in mind, it can't be helped.
Oh god this kind of excuse. Just stop.
>People pair Asuka with her daughter
Until 4.0 proves otherwise Mari being their daughter is a fanwank.
I droped NGE when Asuka died.
Is that wrong?
Some people laughed, some people cried.
The people who cried were probably Kaworufags, fudanshi if you will.
Going to assume that was you, don't see any argument there.
>...aaand you're resorting to insults.
Oh boo hoo? You're acting like a fucking child and ruining threads because of your hatred of a fanbase. There is nothing more pathetic in the world. You should look back on your earlier posts for insults, too, you were very free with them.
And you've used "...and" to start two posts so far, stop being such a shit writer.
>Can't even utilize English properly
Jesus fucking christ, go back to school kid.
Asuka's left leg is, like, Bayonetta length in that picture.
You dropped it in the middle of the ending movie?
Id Shinji wanted to stop running away, why didn't he reverse the 3rd Impact while he was in control of Lilith.
Freeing himself from the singular conciousness of Lilith just made him live by himself, if anything it seems like he still ran away in the end, and then choking Asuka because she knew he jacked off to her so he rather not face the problem and he chokes her.
I thought I understood End of Evangelion but Shinji contradicts himself, was he just to stupid to reverse the 3rd Impact and face the human interaction he despises but said he would face?
>Shinji and Asuka's relationship is left completely ambiguous in both the manga and NGE
Tell me something new. Refer to >>101588468
And goddamn don't lecture me on that while posting Asuka x Mari
>posts Asuka x Mari
Son..just kidding, it's still funny
>What I wouldn't do for certain, and I hope you agree, is fuck over every single character so you can focus on Kawoshin.
This. I don't see why Kaworufags have trouble accepting what happened in 3.0. It's an easy and rational thing to do.
You could have REAL romance between them, kissing and confessions, but it shouldn't happen in a way which takes worth from the other characters.
How can you respect a work which doesn't try to make the best out of everything?
I'm talking about the actual show, not a movie.
I dropped right at that episode.
But she didn't die in the show, anon.
Why don't you point out my mistakes instead, phag. I've been learning English for 4 months
>didn't even got to the part when Shinji died
I don't deny I'm fanwanking for a second. As long as I'm aware of it, I don't see why I can't point out someone else doing it as well.
>Fights a bunch of Angels.
>They adapt to her moves after she is clearly winning and beat her ass.
She died in my heart, /a/
I had to drop it.
This is getting pretty messy again.
In fact I don't recall there being a single good Eva thread since the beginning of the year.
That happens in the EOE movie. You stopped watching halfway through a movie and were like half an hour from finishing.
And she comes back to life.
>In fact I don't recall there being a single good Eva thread since the beginning of the year.
Try ever since 3.0.
Dude. The characters in 1.0 are basically copies of their original selves. You can't be a prude and not accept the tiny changes 1.0 had. They weren't messed up, they were on good way to becoming great. 2.0 chips in a bit by developing them and setting the stage, but what does 3.0 do....?
With the focus on timeloops, Kawoshin and so on, it's taken far too much time to actually finish the characters. Even if Kaworu had more screentime or opportunity this time, he's still just focused entirely on Shinji, for the sake of Kawoshin.
Now he's dead, and that's that.
24 was so much better, and it even had the characters interact at a greater rate and more plausibility, I don't think Rei Q even talks to Kaworu in 3.0.
I wish it was better but it just isn't - they decided to focus on Kawoshin because they like it. But that had it's cost.
I've seen a few. It's been like this for more than a year now.
I just thought it was obvious in the first place, even if at least the LAS fanwanking does make a little more sense, not that this makes it any less fanwanking though
Every time Rebuild gets mentioned, everything turns to shit. Even if you don't, someone will want to rage about something about it.
So episode 9?
It's always going to be a little messy when people have opposing opinions. It's just human nature.
Anyone? I just want to understand EoE better
>doing lewd things while her mom watches
This is way too lewd
4.0 can't come out soon enough...
Yeah. That movie singlehandedly killed eva-threads on /a/.
8/10 underappreciated post
Man I don't even know anymore.
Kill me now.
Neither one is canon, does it really matter which is less not canon?
Wrong thread motherfucker
Wait, you didn't watch EoE?
How would Eva as a franchise be different if Revy was the main character instead of Shinji?
He chokes her again because he's still not over most of his problems.
I'm pretty sure he didn't revert everyone back to life because he wanted to give everyone the chance to do it themselves. But then he realized that nobody wanted to.
One thing has been bugging me about rebuild in particular since the time jump. Shinji very clearly DID pull the current Rei back out of Zeruel, but Gendo's new Rei in 3.0 is clearly a new clone.
What the shit happened to the Rei that Shinji revived? Is she-
-Is she still inside unit 01, inside the Wunder? Does WILLE know?
Just what I was saying
>not that this makes it any less fanwanking though
Shut up, we Asuka now.
>we Asuka now.
How Asuka can you get?
She'd be like Mari but a lot angrier, so she'd probably have insanely violent sex with Asuka.
Then we agree and can get back to jerking ourselves off over headcanon.
But Anon she already pilots Unit 02>>101589018
They apparently had to remove Rei the fuck out, so they stuck her inside EVA01.
WILLE may or may not know, chances are they don't give a fuck.
We need someone to put Anno into another deep depression so that he can create another Eva masterpiece like 25/25 and EoE but with actual budget.
They probably know.
Don't worry, there's always a thread at any given moment. This is another kind of thread already
But I thought this thread was an Evangelion discussion thread? Don't tell me this has turned into another Red vs Blue thread?
I believe Tiffany Grant is the theoretical maximum.
Why aren't you white piggu posting the OTP
Not possible. I never stopped
And please don't say headcanon again
Man this blatant samefagging....
What if Revy and Asuka got in a fight? Who would win?
I don't see Blue anywhere, we're just trying to get the autist Kaworufag-kun to chill the fuck out already.
You mean Kim Jong Un.
All I know is that 4.0 will have at least one fight scene between Reis, be it inside EVA out out. The could be quick, they could be protracted and horrible. If I have to guess, new Rei is a sleeper agent or something and old Rei is going to eat her via 01 to save Shinji or whatever.
>You will never smoke weed with Kaworu
Does this shit get ANY better? Shinji is the whiniest faggot I have ever seen.
Angry yuri love
Or you could look at it the correct way.
>his father abandoned him when he was a child

A big problem with it is shipping, dumping, and general "Stop liking what I don't like." It's all just very uninteresting now.
Rei Q Q don't even knows how to talk
>Introduction of Rei Q Q
Rebuild is a sequel.
Why the fuck are you dumping TojixAsuka fanart.
Nigga please. Is anybody TojixAsuka on /a/? This ship is fucking empty.
Should be working out for your nudes ARK.
I thought Toji died in the Rebuilds?
Yep, it's fukken dead
3.0 was so bad it chased away everyone wanting to discuss it seriously, so now we're left with people who think posting a picture of toji and asuka means OGM SHIPXING
also ARK you are the cancerest wanna-be "debater" that ever visited the eva threads
Everyone knows Touji belongs with loli Rei.
He and Kaji are off having a magical adventure together.
Phi Brain is the true sequel to Evangelion
Just search for some gay porn already.
I haven't debated anything in a while.
Just a crackship, but I still doubt it has many followers.
Toji needs more fanart in general. He's best boy, for fuck's sake.
It's bothering me to no end that unit 04 was given an off-screen boom and nothing was even said about 07.
>I haven't debated anything in a while.
That's implying you ever did, you cocksucker
RIP in peace you magnificent bastards.
If you count manboy as a boy then Kaji is the best boy.
But I want to watch gay porn that has you in it.
>implying Toji is dead
Toji died piloting 07. Rei P killed him.
This is only going to devolve into semantics and neither of us wants that.
Shinji > Toji > Kensuke >>> Kaworu
You're gonna wear the hat for it right? I can't find any gay porn like that.
Not bishie enough.
Guess she was a leg ahead of him in terms of skill.
>treating Rei this badly
As an Asuka person I find ReTake over the line with her
What are you talking about. That was the nicest thing the author did to Rei in ReTake.
Being Rei is suffering.
It's a doujin, Rebuild is arguably worse.
Not that much, she only learned to feel suffering 5 minutes before allahu ackbar
>That was the nicest thing the author did to Rei in ReTake.
....which is horrible in itself.
7 is still at large, we might see it in 4.0.
Just kidding have some 2+8
So painful to watch. The first time I actually hope the preview won't reflect the actual content of the movie and exactly the reason why this time the master is going to really put it in the movie
HAHA WE YEN NOW
The preview of 3.0 in 2.0 looked really good, but Anno had absolutely none of what we saw in that preview in the final movie?
>implying anno isn't just putting fake shit in the trailers again
He's just fucking around with the fans like he did with 3.0.
2+8 is just a decoy, the 3.33 groundwork shows only unit 8 against the MP-Evas in both the storyboard and the early CGI.
RIP Mari, you were a useless but qt person
Where we're going we won't need good Eva designs.
He got halfway done making the movie the previews showed. Then he decided it wasn't good enough.
After Eva 02 got goofy robo arms and turned into a fucking cat in 3.0 I don't even care anymore. Anno can go to hell with the abomination that he created.
>those green MP evas
>Then he decided it wasn't good enough.
That must have been extremely shitty
This post really deserves more recognition. Is it possible that most people in this thread are so brain-dead that they don't even notice this joke?
Because it wasn't funny, now stop samefagging your post.
Asuka is gonna save the Mari she loves.
Did I say good enough, I meant gay enough.
Please, samefag a little more elegantly
I had already lost hope for Rebuild to be good ever again after 3.0, but that trailer just cemented it to me that 3.0 really was every bit as shitty as it was, and that 4.0 would be too.
You know when a joke is so obvious, but there's always that retard that has to say it anyway? It's ceased being funny.
Everyone finds love in the end.
>Did I say good enough, I meant gay enough.
It wasn't gay though.
The subtext was gay.
>you'll never see Rei II teach Rei Q how to care for someone through the universal language of selfcestous love.
>implying the "Mari trying to solo MP-Evas" is not going to happen while Asuka is in the desert
>implying that Asuka will not tell Shinji the amazing adventures that glasses and eyepatch had in the timeskip and how she was a true friend to her as Mari is disemboweled by the Mark 06 clones.
They should just scrap current rebuild and try again, we might suffer for 15 more years, but at least it will be decent.
>tfw doing nothing but checking for news on 4.0 every fucking day
Why can't I hold all this hype? 3.0 was terrible, but I can't help but be excited for Final.
You mean, a Rebuild of the Rebuild? Sure, why the hell not.
Of course Mari is going to survive, who do you think that will sing Komm, susser Tod in the end?
It nyall returrns to nyothing, It nyall comes
tumbling meow, tumbling meow
I'm was this anon
But I do think that
is the original poster. It was funny but I don't think it was as good as he's making it out to be. Sorry anon
There won't be any news for the next few months but the basic script or story is out according to Shinji's Va. Anno explained it to the staff during Khara's year end dinner.
>she was the only person I ever loved
Please don't do it Anno.
>Komm Susser Tod
Because we all know this is inevitable.
Now we just have to wait for Anno to change his mind at the last minute and have the script go through 15 revisions until it looks nothing like it was originally.
It's just so fucking bad.
It surely looked gay. And felt gay. My dick can't be wrong
Too bad Arianne took down the dubstep version.
It means it's in production or at least pre production instead of no movement.
It isn't even gonna matter if 4.0 is shit because it is essentially guaranteed profit. It's really fucking sad to see this happen to the Eva we know and love.
post it right
Eva has been a whore for awhile man.
Really, I'm pretty sure the revisions that happened with 3.0 mostly had to do with the tsunami and that changing Anno's personal vision in his story.
>Asukas talks about her life after all that happened in 2.0 and her almost mindbreak
>Clear allusions to the Arael mindrape from NGE
>Except on the critical times Mari shows up and help her
>We have one lovely scene like pic related
>Next scene after that talk is unit 08 getting wrecked by the MP evas.
>And guess what? Daughteru theory was right
I don't know why you act like Evangelion is "above" things like marketing. It's not and it never has been.
Sure the series is good and has its own meaningful themes, but it was never beyond tasteless fanservice. Didn't you pay attention to the entire TV series? Only the final like 4 episodes + EoE are honestly "serious and dark." It's always been more than ready to do what it must to bring in some money, that's all it's been for the last decade and more.
If Mari bites it I don't think they'll go with the daughter route. It would just cheapen the fact Mari was the only real friend she had.
Exactly this, if Mari ends up dying for Asuka in 4.0 I prefer that she is just someone who really took interest in her out of free will instead of someone "destined" to meet her.
I feel like whatever back story they give mari(if any at all) will be too little too late in 4.0.
Yeah this optimism seems sorely misplaced when her primary role has basically been as an understudy to fill out action sequences
I'd actually be surprised if that theory is true even if she doesn't die. Anno considered having her be one of Asuka's classmates when he was writing 2.0 but decided against it because it would have made her too close to Asuka. Taking that into account daughter from the future is a little closer than classmate.
Anon, just wanted to let you know that unlike these other faggots I get the joke.
I had never considered this but it makes a lot of sense.
> utilize English
>Implying Revy is a lesbo.
Get real. She would also kick her ass too. Revy is pure.
;_; I-I tried
These were meeeeeeeeeeee
Wish /a/ would just ban Eva threads for a month or something. No matter how they begin, it takes no time at all for them to become repetitive as all shit.
Then don't read them.
But anon, I do want to actually have Eva discussion, which is why I have a problem with these threads all being repetitive shitposting shit.
Having no Eva threads for a while might allow people to actually catch their breath and come up with something interesting to say about it.
There's always a few people looking for actual discussion in these threads you just have to look for them.
Also consider the fact that while people would build up a desire for actual discussion how much larger the repressed desire for waifu wars shitposting would be.
I heard Shinji wakes up in the future in 3.0. Is that true? Shit sounds fucking awesome. I just finished EoE yesterday and I'm pretty hyped for the ".0" movies. Just about done torrenting all of them, gonna marathon them all later. Already have my gravity bong and about 2gs of Memphis Bell and Grizzly Mellow Yellow ready. I also have the day of from work and school tomorrow.
>Shit sounds fucking awesome
It wont be nearly as good as you imagine it would be
Yep you can skip the first two movies, 3.0 is a sequel to EOE.
The parallels with the almost-kiss in 9 were something I hadn't thought about, but it seems pretty obvious in retrospect.
There's definitely still people that want real discussion, but most of them aren't willing to slog through all the shitposting and badly-constructed shitflinging. Not to mention that it only takes one innocent question about rebuild to start the whole cycle of shitposting.
Wait until a waifu thread is up and then make a discussion thread.
You know exactly how well that's going to work.
If you're still here, there's a scene where shinji is playing on a playground. The scene starts with a broken sandcastle and ends with a broken sandcastle. He spends time building it with some friends, then their mother comes to get him. A streetlight comes on and there is no one to call him home. So he wrecks the castle, and settles down and stars building again. It's really a nice image of the damn kids life. He's got problems man, and that's why we got rebuild, because anno didn't want his lil boy to be sad anymore... Or something like that....
I'm almost positive it's a giant troll in a troll, which is already in a troll called the series to begin with...
Anno must have really been nuts as fuck when he came up with this shit. He's basically the definition of clinically insane.
Is it truly wrong to still have hope for Mari?
According to the CRC interview at first she was just supposed to make a cameo/battle the third angel in 2.0 and nothing more, but they decided to add her earlier thanks to fan reaction and to have more base for when she fully joined the plot in the original Q plot.
And meanwhile whatever she was going to do in Q didn't happen because "timeskip" it is very probable that it will just be transferred to final, after all they seemed to have some finality for her in the plot even before they came up with a look or personality for her.
I agree that her presence in the second and third movie was lackluster, but I don't see what is the big deal of thinking that she will develop even if just a little in the final one, it would be the natural flow of things.
Why is Asuka so perfect?
It's not wrong, I just don't share your optimism, based on what we've got so far.
fuck i laughed
terminal plebhood right here
He is a princess after all.
What was wrong with anything I said?
Mari is canon lesbian?
Sure why not.
