I am all sorts of fixed to this spot for the next two hours, so it's time for an Eva Q&A thread.
Ask any question pertaining to Eva and I will answer it. I am confident I can answer just about anything you have on your mind.
If living in tang was your greatest desires, why couldn't Shinji just make it so that he could experience his "real human interaction" within the tang?
Is Shinji a pussy?
How long was Shinji by himself after he emerged from the tang?
Why did he choke Asuka?
Did Asuka try to kill herself or was that bathtub just rusty?
The concept behind tang world is that the tang itself is a living being. Every soul merged together inside the black moon, and all physical life on the Earth dissolved into tang. Because all life merged, there was nothing else to interact with. Shinji didn't desire for a world of tang, he desired a world where everyone was alone. Turning everyone into tang was just the best way of going about it.
Unclear. Probably not very long since he didn't age at all. He choked Asuka to see how she would respond. He wanted to know if she cared for him and depended on him. She tried to kill herself.
Why is Rebuild 3 such a piece of shit?
He's reconstructing the formula of the original show with the intention of showing it to an audience that has already seen the original show. To do that he needed to change Eva's identity as a show. I can go more in-depth on this matter if you'd like.
Something came up to my mind when I saw your post.
Are you the same faggot that did the same "I'll answer EVA" on Youtube? Seen you in 2007, back when I was an idiot and read the comment section.
I thought everyone turning into tang was part of the human instrumentality project regardless of what Shinji desired. Would Gendo have been alright with this too then? I thought that he would be with his wife inside of the tang?
If they say Asuka isn't best girl, then why I can't stop fapping to her?
What parts of the mindfuck in EoE were real, in your opinion?
Did Shinji and Asuka have real sex or tang sex?
How could people who died before the instrumentality come back to life? I mean Asuka died, and she was brought back at the end. Does this mean that anyone that ever died throughout history is now conscious in the tang, and can come back to life? Wouldn't that be an issue?
Did Asuka's arm really split in two?
They don't. Their souls are brought back into a world they make in their minds. That's instrumentality.
Asuka was brought back to life by Shinji because she is the only person that gave him a form and looks.
Not OP but the tang shit was probably illusions of what he wanted at the moment, but through his discussion with the tang spirit he realized what he really wanted and then everything from rebuild beach on was reality again.
Why didn't the angels attack nerve all at once?
Nah I've never uploaded anything Eva related to youtube. Maybe sometime in the future though.
SEELE wanted to turn everyone into tang because they believed it was the next best step in human evolution. Gendo actively worked against SEELE's plan specifically because of this, his only desire was to be with Yui again. It's never made exactly clear how he planned on reuniting with Yui, but you can use your imagination for that.
When Rei merged with Lilith, she gave Shinji the decision of whether or not to tang everyone. He decided to do so, but for very different reasons from SEELE's.
But anon, Asuka IS the best girl.
Replying as fast I can.
WHAT HAPPENED TO PEN PEN ??
I like this thread
Rei merged with both Lilith and Adam though.
Check Gendo's hand
So what, Vlad the Impaler's soul is sitting there all tanged up?
Since people can apparently get out of the tang for free thanks to Shinji, can Vlad theoretically come out now and bring people to live considering they gave him a form?
In his own world/soul, yes. It all depends if his sould accepted instrumentality or not.
In EoE end, Instrumentality didn't complete, so Shinji and Asuka are Adam and Eve.
In TV ending, everyone gets their own little world
We get it. You're not OP. Fuck.
Oh, I thought the instrumentality was a shared conscious or something. It's been a while so I don't remember Seele's ramblings exactly.
Also how did the newer Rei clones keep the previous one's memories? Were they uploaded into the rest when Gendo was putting her in the tank or whatever? Again, my memory is a bit fuzzy.
Rei's mind and soul got exponentially lessened the more clones she had.
Rei I had almost Yui's soul intact, Rei II was a little more lovely, and Rei III which we see in most of the anime in just dead on the inside.
Still best girl though
Why is 3.0 such shit?
I sort of get what happened, but none of it was anything that new or interesting compared to the other rebuild films.
Do you know?
>Ask any question pertaining to Eva and I will answer it. I am confident I can answer just about anything you have on your mind.
Why is it that Rebuild has decided to drastically lower the quality and perceived image of some characters, whilst bolstering others?
Who do you think is responsible on the team?
But I thought since instrumentality didn't complete, other people got a chance to return back to their physical form as well other than just Shinji and Asuka.
IF the above statement is true, how long do people get to make that decision? Can they just get out whenever they feel like it?
Anno trying to get the fujoshi fans hyped for figurines
With the exception of a few distinct pieces every mindfuck segment is entirely constructed from Shinji's memories & in the case of EoE the memories of everyone. So I guess the best answer is it's PROBABLY all real. Even the lewd bits.
This is a question you can only answer yourself.
To return to Human form after instrumentality you need two things.
A. The resolve to escape the comfortable isolation of the tang.
B. Dependency on interactions with other people to establish your identity. Shinji and Asuka return to life because they don't have a sense of self on their own. They're like dolls. If there isn't someone around to play with them, they're motionless.
I wouldn't dwell too hard on the implications of people like Hitler returning from tang world. That isn't really something the creators of the show were thinking about.
The most likely answer is that they weren't all active. In the episode Magma Diver we see that the Angel, Sandalphon is still just an embryo. It's likely this was the case for the rest of the Angels.
WRONG WRONG WRONG
Rei has none of Yui's soul and it does not get lessened the more clones she had
Not everyone got the choice. As you can see in EoE, instrumentality just hits you in the face and you have to fight it, or accept it. Or that's what I think.
Nice post m8
What was the eye-vagina absorbing the tree of life supposed to mean, story-wise or symbolism-wise.
Why did Shinji see Rei at the very beginning of Episode 1?
Exactly what you typed.
Thanks, but I mean new memories. I mean she still knew who everyone was and such if I don't remember wrong. I imagine they were just pumped into the tank with all of the other clones?
>Nice post m8
Thing is Rei is Lilith. Yui is 100% inside EVA01.
Penguin flavored tang.
This is a big question so I'm going to write up a big answer while I answer other questions. Stick around.
>it's PROBABLY all real
But I don't recall Shinji standing there while Misato and Kaji were bunnyfucking. Also, when did he choke her?
To give us a mind fuck for when Kaworu sees Shinji at the very beginning of Episode 1 of Rebuild of Rebuild the Series.
She was on her way to the infirmary
>The reason why the DNA of Yui Ikari was used is not explicitly stated. It may be due to Commander Ikari's desire to be with his wife once more, in whatever way possible.
I don't even want to elaborate so I'm just copy pasting from the canon.
That guy is wrong on most accounts.
The deal with Rei is that her being, is her soul. The Rei you see physically, is that soul incarnated using a clone. Memories, her state is all in her brain, like yours or mine.
It overrides the soul - Rei's memories are thus lost when a body is lost.
Her memory however, is backed up when she is inside that tank. Her knowledge and thought patterns can be transferred into a clone body.
The clone body is not enough however, you need Rei's soul. Which is only "free" when Rei is dead.
This is why Rei can remember most things but not the things between last backup and her death.
Rei is also Lilith.
Why humans instead of dolphins? They have souls too.
What do you want to communicate with your post?
Fuck off back to sea world.
Story-wise it's just Shinji merging with the Rei/Lilith/Adam/Kaworu hybrid. Symbolism-wise it's symbolic of re-entry into the womb and the acquisition of immense power.
Lilith reaching out to Shinji and signaling the beginning of everything leading up to the end.
In EoE the mindfuck segments are composed of everyone's memories because of tang. He most likely choked her right after Episode 15 ended. Go watch Episode 15 and make note of the clothes they're wearing. Then watch the mindfuck choking scene in EoE.
She does the same thing at the very end of EoE.
She has a microwavephone machine.
>hurr I made a steins;shit reference in an eva thread am i clever yet?
>He most likely choked her right after Episode 15 ended
probably the dumbest thing ive seen yet
It was a joke to display that Rei can be everywhere and anywhere once Third Impact started, because she has every soul in the world.
It was a terrible joke and a terrible reference to a show with a godawful fanbase.
I can only ask for forgiveness
Go choke on a can of Dr Pepper.
Nigger you're completely wrong.
Do you really believe he choked her after the kissu?
Ep 15 is arguably the acme of NGE and the point where everything is going at its best, characters' relationship and emotions included. Assuming that the choking thing happened soon after the kissu would not only be extremely incoherent in-universe, but it would also be a colossal fault in the directing/storywriting, a mistake that I deem Anno incapable of.
I don't think those things really happened, I'm pretty sure everything is more like an expression of feelings mixed with memories and with others' feeling, so the choking scene is literally Shinji arguin with the Asuka in his mind, from his standpoint, a standpoint where he is a poor harmless babby asking for help and Asuka a rejecting, mean monster.
To me it looks more like a materialization of his fear of rejection, that triggers his decision to fuck everything and tang the world
Having the same clothes isn't really a strong point
This is in response to everyone asking about why Rebuild 3.33 is so shit. The identity of the show "Neon Genesis Evangelion" is directly linked to the identity of the character "Shinji Ikari". When the show begins, Shinji does not have much of an identity. He doesn't know how to interact with people and he doesn't want to pilot Eva. As the show progresses and establishes its own identity, Shinji too establishes his own identity as the pilot of Eva-01. At the end of the first cour we can see that Shinji has a firm idea of who he is and why he is who he is. He is an Eva pilot because he wants to gain the love of his father.
When the second cour begins, the show does a 180 and completely loses its identity. Suddenly there are mindfuck segments, all comedy is lost, and there is a large focus on the characters instead of the Angels. This is where Shinji begins to question his identity as an Eva pilot, and the show progresses to its conclusion. The first half of the show is about gaining an identity. The second half of the show is about losing that identity. The conclusion of the show is about a balance between the two.
Rebuild is essentially copying this formula. The 1st film has no identity because it's just a scene-for-scene copy of the original show. The 2nd film changes things up a bit and establishes an identity for the Rebuild films. The 3rd film takes the established identity and throws it out the window.
The content of the 3rd Rebuild film is only shit in the context of "this is Evangelion". What disturbs us is stuff like the cat Eva and the characters we love being effectively raped on film in order to change the identity of Eva.
I feel like this was a pretty shitty explanation & I probably glossed over a few things so please tell me if I sound stupid and you have no idea what I'm talking about.
Did Quantom Rei appear at Terminal Dogma in episode 24 and create that HUGE A.T. Field?
Or did Rei 3 realise who he was.?
Rei 3 realized she was Lilith after Kaworu told her they were the same.
Maybe Anno is just a hack.
It is not that well explained. Perhaps even a bit wrong or questionable in some areas, take
>The content of the 3rd Rebuild film is only shit in the context of "this is Evangelion".
Isn't this the only context there is? It's even one of the lines used to advertise it. Without that context, wouldn't it be even shittier?
On an emotional level, the fact that this is Evangelion and not some no-name new franchise might hurt a fan more, but it is shit anyway isn't it?
What exactly did you think was shitty about the 3rd Rebuild movie?
The lack of everything beyond superficial pandering.
It's a colorful and mostly well-directed movie, in regards to the score, but beyond that? There isn't much.
That's why this is only powerful in the context of "this is Evangelion".
Someone at some point said it took 15 years for the next angel to appear, meaning that Sachiel was the first after the second impact happened. But in the first episode, Rei shows up half dead like she had just fought one. What happened to her?
Accident while activating Unit 00, I think?
I'd like to hear what you have to say about this
That was my first thought but she had plenty of accidents like that later and was never hurt much.
sorry, found the post. forget about this
Have you read this?
It expands on what you just mentioned.
Remember when her entry plug flew through the air and smashed the ceiling?
That didn't happen again.
Tell about Kaworu
in EoE SEELE sends the MP EVAs to NERV, and they later attach to EVA-01 forming the tree of life. Then the union of Adam/Lilithe/Rei/Kaworu starts Instrumentality using the tree of life. So if SEELE didn't know that Gendo would unite Adam and Lilith what was the original plan for making the tree of life?
I have, and it's a really bad article.
I really don't.
That's some serious mental gymnastics there to defend 3.0. I don't think the guy who wrote this really knows what he's talking about concerning Evangelion.
It's a rather typical piece that is more concerned about defending something and shielding it instead of commenting on that something's contents.
I don't think it expands on what he wrote at all, since 3.0 is about changing the identity of Evangelion, more than it is to do what your link proposes, which was to give conversation.
Not known, I believe their main goal was to wrest control from Gendo's hands.
this thread is actually.. turning out really well.
SEELE's plan was to take Adam from Gendo and take Lilith's soul from Rei. Neither of them had accounted for Rei establishing enough of a personality to say "No".
OK then OP, is Shinji bisexual?
This will probably sound really odd, but why exactly did Lilith choose Senji? Why did she "choose" anyone?
So what started Instrumentality wasn't actually the tree of life but the union of Adam and LIlith.
Or are both necessary?
because Lilith is Rei. Rei is a bitter little girl that likes Shinji.
>he choked Asuka during ep 15
8/10, decent troll, but I don't honestly believe someone has such a limited grasp of Eva to make such a dumb statement. I'm not even going to explain it to you, rewatch EoE you twat. The clothing is signiciant because it was a (sort of) nice moment for those two, and they spit it back in each other's faces. Just fucking watch EoE, you shouldn't be posting if you dont know what you're talking about
I haven't seen anything related to Evangelion ever other than a couple of youtube videos.
What's the deal with Asuka suddenly wearing an eyepatch? Doesn't she die rather grousomely in that scene with the Lance of Longinus?
Why is this shit so confusing?
She probably started questioning what the fuck she was doing there after Asuka yelled at her and accused her of being nothing more than a puppet. She went to Shinji because he was the one closest to her that wasn't just using her.
It's difficult to say what exactly starts it, but Adam and Lilith fusing is not necessarily it, even though it may start it.
Fusing Adam and Lilith would result in a humongously powerful being, that is capable of starting it.
It is for contrasting purposes, despite auska taking some of the pleasure away from shinji (nearly suffocating him) it was about as close as those two ever got in the series. Reliving that scene while choking her shows how far down they've gone.
Wasn't the eye patch correlating to her loss of that eye in EoE?
How the fuck am I supposed to know? I don't even know what EoE stands for.
Jesus, that is a lot deeper than I thought it was. Time to rewatch.
I can guess that any other way of starting it is unknown...
Hm, the last comment on the bottom says it better than I can.
What does Gendo say to Ritsuko before he shoots her?
It's not any variation on "I need you."
End of Evangelion?
It isn't so much so Lilith choosing Shinji as it is Rei & Kaworu choosing Shinji. They both love and respect him enough to the point that they're willing to put the fate of the world in his hands.
Nope. He's straight.
I don't think I can properly explain this to someone who hasn't watched the show.
He just wants someone to love him and be completely open about that. Anyone would do, but Kaworu was the first and only "person" to actually do that... well maybe aside Yui.
The same that Rei I tells her.
why would you ask a question know you lack the context to understand the answer? do you want someone to just give you a synopsis of the entire series?
>Nope. He's straight.
Thank you for your time, troll. Please come again.
Gendo is shown speaking that line from Ritsuko's perspective and it is intentionally kept silent because it doesn't matter what he said. The point of that scene is that regardless of what he said, Ritsuko wouldn't have believed him.
You are so wrong. He will accept love from either gender as long as it's the right person. He pushed Misato away because of how he interprets their relationship.
IF I SAID THE SERIES IS CLOSELY LINKED TO A NUN'S TWAT, WHAT WOULD YOU ANSWER TO ME?
This is actually a legitimate question, really interesting trivia too.
That's answer /a/non, that's a non-answer.
Skip it and give us the trivia.
rei 1 soul is the one that was in eva 00 right and when 00 and rei 2 were destroyed rei 3 had a complete soul and is why one of the first things she did was cry?
I don't think I'm properly equipped to answer this question.
Remember to back up your waifu's people.
Also that is why unit 00 tried to kill Ritsuko twice.
I like to think that he said old hag.
The line "God's in his Heaven/All's right with the world!" comes from the poem "Pippa Passes" by Robert Browning, as I'm sure a lot of you know. Other than being famous for that oft quoted line, the poem is also famous for a distressing blunder Browning made due to his tenous grasp of the slang of the time.
Right at the end of the poem, in her closing song, Pippa calls out the following:
But at night, brother Howlet, far over the woods,
Toll the world to thy chantry;
Sing to the bats’ sleek sisterhoods
Full complines with gallantry:
Then, owls and bats, cowls and twats,
Monks and nuns, in a cloister’s moods,
Adjourn to the oak-stump pantry!
When the editors of the Oxford English Dictionary enquired decades later where Browning had picked up the word, he directed them to a rhyme from 1660 that went thus: "They talk’t of his having a Cardinall’s Hat/They’d send him as soon an Old Nun’s Twat." Browning apparently missed the vulgar joke and took "twat" to mean part of a nun's habit, pairing it in his poem with a priest's cowl.
And now you know.
You're always apologizing.
Suffice to say, I don't agree with your view of what is "closely related".
I'm debating with my friend who says that Shinji isn't a good character because his reactions ("whining, bitching") are too "over-the-top," making him unlikable and creating disconnect between the viewer and Shinji.
Was Eva created with any sense of "I hope you like our characters and plot!" or is it truly a more objective show where your opinions don't mean shit?
I want /lit/ to leave.
That's awesome. I don't think that qualifies as "closely related" but that's still awesome.
Browning was an idiot.
Tennyson master race reporting in.
But they are pretty reserved and cool guys if you don't talk about Niestzche or Orwell.
WELL ANON TELL ME, HOW MANY ANIMUS HAVE FEATURED TENNYSON'S POETRY?
THAT'S WHAT I THOUGHT.
I can't really say that Shinji is a good character if the qualifications for being a good character are "does not whine or bitch", but I can certainly say that Eva wasn't created with the intent to have people like it and its characters. The creators of Eva set out to make something unique that had not been seen before. It just ended up being a really good show that also happened to be unique.
I liked Shinji, he felt very human to me. The only time I felt he really did go full pussycake was in EoE when he completely lost all sense of self preservation and just wanted to lie there and wait for someone to shoot him.
Tennyson is /co/ material. Everyone knows that.
Shinji and Rei had tang sex.
Clone angel hybrid Imouto wins again.
Probably because with an incomplete soul most of her emotional reactions had been dulled most of her life. She might not have been ready to manage a full emotional reaction from a memento that was important to her. Specially after such a fresh trauma and now that she's realizing she has been putting too much stock in the wrong person. Really there's too much that could have triggered those tears at that moment.
I actually think a bit different, I understood Shinji's state in EoE after so much it's halfway through the show when he was a bit annoying. But he is a great character.
from outer space!
Because of lingering emotions in her soul. The point is that Rei cries, and knows it isn't the first time even when it should be because she can't remember having cried.
She's unsure of why she's crying, and Rei II offers the answer a few minutes earlier: loneliness.
Rei is so lonely even death doesn't take away the pain of being lonely, and this isn't metaphorical here, that's literally what happened.
Will Kaji be in 4.0?
Yes, my uncle work at Khara and he already spoiled me the whole plot.
His corpse will.
There is no winner, but Rei II is alive by the end, so she could win, but Sakura is going to be a tough competition.
I just noticed that Kaworu appears to be morbidly obese in Shinji's reflection.
Isn't he already dead in 3.0?
He must be, otherwise Misato wouldn't have become such a bitch.
Sakura will win what?
What is the best episode? pro tip its 11
How did Seele's and Gendo's plans differ?
No one is gonna win the Shinji this time. Anno is sick of everyone's shit.
Why is Gendo such a dick? Is he really just a straight-up psychopath or does he have an inability to show any kind of emotion at all?
That is why a new side character is going to win him.
He is a liar, he says he wants to meet his waifu but secretly he wants to be transformed into a little girl.
Don't doubt the master on this one.
why is she so perfect?
>gendo quietly seething with jealousy as a pretty-boy fag seduces his shinji-kun instead
>hardly helping at all
You got that right.
Because he gave his life to protect that smile.
Suzuhara genes are best genes, best bros and cutest girls.
Sakura will triumph where her brother once failed.
Toji is alive, just you wait until he shows up in 4.0 with Hikari as his waifu and his own cute little kid to raise.
What does the title Neon Genesis Evangelion refer to?
Can't advise the Anno.
I hope so too man.
Nope, everyone loses and half of then dies, only ship that sails is Mari x Gendo.
What I gathered from watching the series a few times:
Yui's DNA (clone), Rei's mind, Lilith's soul
Rei I dies, her mind and soul are split and the other half is put into Unit 00. This is why Rei II seems to be emotionless. It also explains why Unit 00 is wonky and wants to kill Ritsuko.
Yui's DNA, Rei's partial mind, Lilith's partial soul.
Rei II dies, and Unit 00 is destroyed. The parts of her mind and soul that were in Unit 00 are salvaged and placed into the new clone, along with Rei II's pieces. Rei III is like Rei I but with the thoughts and emotions from Rei II. Once she meets Kaworu and realizes her true identity as Lilith, she has enough of her emotions to resist Gendo and side with Shinji.
Is this about right? This is assuming Unit 00 wasn't completed before Rei I died.
what is the best Evangelion fanwork?
The Asuka vs MP Evas rape doujins, specially the one where Kyoko is together.
Something like that, yeah.
Her body is from a part of lilith body
These always manage to crack me up. I love anything with dickhead Gendo.
The anime makes no statement on that, but it's incredibly likely given even some statements from staff.
It's an incredibly exciting thing to explore, and it'd be empowering for Rei to not simply be a clone but to have the full deal from her Lilith side as well.
But as we all know Rei can't have nice things so she gets the clone treatment.
Why does Mari exist?
I dont get EoE at all.
Well I think she was made the same process of Kaworu.
Mari is the key to all of this
I'd like to think so too. But there's a lot of people who don't want to.
Where are you from, by the way?
>Where are you from, by the way?
I'm from Brazil. Why?
that's not a question, anon
Because dude, after instrumentality Shinji and Asuka were alone and bored, it was bound to happen.
does the series ever touch on that process at all, or is this some nge2 some
Can someone explain EoE ending?
does tang taste like tang or like something else?
Manga show a bit about Kaworu, not mean it's canon but anyway.
tastes like blood, doesnt it?
I thought this too, but then why would it be only in 3.3
Nice gif hue
where can i order a pair of these?
But those are great authors
15 years ago
The series loosely implies that she's made from Adam through association at first.
See, in the beginning, Rei was Adam. Lilith as we know her, was in truth Adam's reconstituted form.
That's why when we reveal the Rei clones in ep23, they're talking about Adam too.
Now, Kaworu makes the entrance, and because Anno has a huge hardon for Kaworu who was first just a normal boy with an Angel companion, makes Kaworu and Angel, and finally, Adam instead, and there are now two thingamajigs, Adam and Lilith as equals. Lots of things were added in later in director's cuts to support this.
The thing that makes sense is that Rei is grown from Lilith with Yui's DNA spliced in, which results in the unstable but similar-to-yui-looking Rei Ayanami, with blue hair and all that.
Now, many years later, being Lilith isn't worth shit any more, Rei is dumbed down to regular clone who can barely say "what is like". and Kaworu is time-warp universe skipping multi-dimensional jesus.
tsun asuka or dere asuka?
Why did the lance fuse with 01 to make the tree of life? Not why as in why did it happen but why as in why did that specifically happen.
Why do those people look like they want to gangrape Shinji?
They said that he was born on the same day as Second Impact. Maybe he is a clone of Misato's father.
i need a proper answer this is very important
how can mirrors be real if our eyes aren't real?
Just something about him.
how many cats does ritsuko have in 3.0?
This is one of the best treads I've seen in a while. In depth informative discussion on /a/..... have I been tanged?
Fuck off jaden.
Don't get used to it.
Two, they also occasionally pilot evas.
Why do those men in the background look like they REALLY want to gangrape Shinji?
...and yet, this is only a shadow of what used to be.
No really, tsun only Asuka is just sad, dere dere asuka is just pointless and ooc, tsundere is what she should be.
Because no MariAsu dump.
which angel is the best angel?
>yfw these were just a bunch of cardboard cut-outs the UN used to fool the angel into thinking their ships have more personnel than they did
>yfw misato did the exact same thing in rebuild 3.0
And the other thing that MariAsu dumps occasionally try to "save" us from in the first place.
Why does Koworu say that everything has an AT field in NGE? Does that imply angels and humans are connected fundamentally?
What is an AT field?
What determines the ability to pilot an Eva?
Adam, all the other just clones.
Can someone explain the ending of EoE?
just fucking go watch the third episode of Re Cutie Honey
Sorry but re-watch carefully the series and EoE. It's pretty clear there.
clones are not inferior!
I don't see Rei as just a clone.
Because they are, yes.
Exactly what Kaworu said; the barriers of a person mind.
Dead mother with her soul/partial soul harvested and placed into the Eva. This is why all the pilots are children born after Second Impact.
Did you see EoE? Because they made all this pretty obvious.
by 2004 Ano had figured out what he was trying to say and does so very concisely
Too bad Anno and 95% of the fanbase does. Rei's worst enemy is Anno and the dumb viewer.
>Did you see EoE
Apparently not, okay then what about those cut scenes about the japanese people living in the 3d world what was that all about?
you need both the tsun and dere
it's the duality of man, sir
well, they are in the navy
When you've been at sea for months a hole is a hole.
do mass-produced evas taste like pork?
Funny how the 2ch Q general is similar to some of the threads here. All meta, but it's less confrontational.
It's an open and accepted issue that Asuka and Kaworu is receiving preferential treatment as a character in Rebuild for instance, there aren't any doubts about that.
I wan't old Anno back or he is trying to hide/troll something.
The best thing about old Anno is that he had no idea what he was doing, now that he does....
I want 3.0 CRC to see that.
Shinji is pretty attractive, anyways.
Personally I don't think 3.0 is needed to assert that.
I'm actually thinking of the damage control they'll do, hehe
Thanks brah, still fucking weird though.
Would be glorious to see and sad at the same time.
Is it weird that I don't really like Shinji but I want to dress him up like a girl and fuck him raw and make him call me mommy?
How powerful is Rei III? Wasn't she like using AT fields and shit?
The strongest to date, according to the MAGI computers.
nah, that's totally normal
Rei can be quite the powerhouse given the certain conditions, but it's a fact that gets little attention because well, Anno likes to be a faggot about these things.
how soft is rei's butthole
scratch that. how soft is SHINJIS butthole
like touching a heavenly cloud, anon
Whew, thank heavens! I wont have to delete 3/4ths of my trap folder the.
If you got the chance would you rape Shinji?
>implying I couldn't seduce Frajil Shonje
Extremely supple and receptive.
Good to see some fellow Shinjifags in this thread. Makes me happy to see people giving him some love.
I'm getting back into Eva and I always wondered what happened after EoE. Two things I couldn't get off my mind was
1. If anyone else came back, and
2. What were Shinji and Asuka going to do at that point. Since the world was cleared of all organic life would they even be able to survive if they intended to?
Haven't gotten around to the rebuilds yet so I'm unsure if that answers anything or not.
>giving him some love
You mean, being absolute pathetic retards talking about violating a fictional character that's in the fucking gutter.
You're never going to get a real answer, and that's by design. It's symbolic and shit, yo
You mean tenderly loving a fictional character.
Why have people forgotten that trolls exist?
Alright I'm just popping back into the thread to answer one last question.
1. It all depends on your perspective. It's never explicitly stated that people WILL come back, just that it's possible.
2. Worst case scenario is they drink the LCL. It's the primordial soup of life so you gotta figure that shit has some protein.
Goodbye everybody. If I have some time again tomorrow I'll make another thread.
Hello /a/, /tg/ here. I saw the TV series and End of Evangelion, and to be frank I preferred the TV series. I believe that the last two episodes were basically Shinji working through his mental issues and that none of it was actually happening. I quite liked that ending, as I thought it brought the series and the character to an excellent (one might say pretdetermined, given the opening credits) conclusion. The show was about Shinji working out his issues, and in the very end, he does, hence congratulations. I think all the nonsense with the extra endings is just Anno either fucking with the Otaku who didn't get that he was lampooning the mecha tropes, or letting his depression get the better of him. I think it's really over thought by a lot of people to be honest. That's just me though, so feel free to disagree. Live and let live, and all that.
I did have one question about End of Evangelion though. At the very end, is that really what the world looks like? Say, in an Inquisitor was passing through on his way to the Cadian Gate and flew in and landed, is that what he would find? Red seas and broken power lines, the whole world reduced to ash and dust, with the random people who pulled out of Tang stuck in a wasteland of unimaginable destruction, and with Liliths broken head staring oover it all?
could always fry up some lillith steaks with a hearty glass of lcl
Oh crap. I just missed him.
The answer is maybe
>I think all the nonsense with the extra endings is just Anno either fucking with the Otaku who didn't get that
Not really, that's what some fans say precisely because they don't get it.
> At the very end, is that really what the world looks like?
>Say, in an Inquisitor was passing through on his way to the Cadian Gat
I don't even wanna know. Fuck you /tg/ and your autism.
Well alright then. Thanks for the thread OP. Will enjoy discussing more tomorrow.
I can live with that. Although I guess the only thing puzzling me at this point was a picture I saw showcasing things in EoE being present in Rebuild. Red ocean, blood on the moon ect., but I'm guessing I'll have to watch Rebuild to figure that out.
"Rei Ayanami is the greatest achievement of our civilization."
- Bill "damn it feels good to be a gangsta" Gates
The answer to the Rebuild thing is that Rebuild is both a sequel and a remake.
Feel free to lie down and gibber.
There's something about Shinji
Average Rebuild discussion thread:
There's no need to be confrontational.
So it's part of instrumentality or it's not? Or both, but neither at the same time?
Well seeing how 4 isn't out yet, I'll let gibbering build up.
Honestly if you can't tell it's basically eternal looping over a gay wish 2bgay4kawuugu because eternal fate homosex, then you're a lost cause.
I swear kids can't read between the lines these days.
I never noticed how much instrumentality looks like that intro, anyway 4.0 is going to be about literally fucking a gay earth.
You can't appreciate one side fully in absence of the other. If there was only tsun, she would be pitiable. If there was only dere, she'd be a nice girl. The great thing about tsundere is that you feel that you've earned the affection, since that side of them doesn't show too often.
Why kaworu didn't stop shinji with words or superpowers at the end of 3.33? it's keep upseating me.
Where did Shinji live before going to NERV?
I was going to whip something up like that except it says FUCK YOU ANNO, REI IS BEST GIRL instead, imagine it being all red and shit
I meant 3rd impact
because then it wouldn't be traaaageec
it wouldn't be beeaaautifuuul
Well, if you don't I might have to figure out how to.
They will answer in CRC or not.
Asuka is pretty pitiable m8.
Those are just homages and visual callbacks, barring anything REALLY insane happening in 4.0
the red sea in rebuild is a result of 2nd impact, ect
I supposed I was wrong in that respect.
>He choked Asuka to see how she would respond.
Why do people say this? I'm pretty sure he chocked her because he was mad as hell at her and wanted to kill her.
I haven't seen rebuild yet to come to that conclusion. I only figured people are speculating about it since the fourth one isn't out yet.
It already happened.
I honestly think both interpretations work. If he was mad, his reaction after she caresses him makes a lot more sense. He was attempting to murder her and she responds with affection, leaving him in the state he was in the movie.
Why can't I really enjoy an anime after this show? Whenever I start a new show all I can think about is how boring it is compared to eva.
Aha. Well then you can't be blamed, but you'll learn in time.
Many are in denial still.
Neon Genesis Evangelion's finest moments crystallized in the new Rebuild series, now remastered in glorious 3D!
I don't know, maybe you should learn to enjoy things on their own terms rather than in relation to other things. Eva is the greatest thing for me but there are plenty of shows that are at least worthy of fighting for that crown, also a show can be plenty of enjoyable even if it's not a masterpiece or very significant in the grand scheme of things.
If the 3d release had been like that I probably would have gone and watch it.
Google is your friend, along with several other sites.
Serial Experiments Lain
There And Back Again
Welcome to The NHK
Yeah, for him it's obviously a continuation of the previous choking scene, lashing out at a perceived rejection
This game was made to tear friendships apart.
>Google is your friend
>Is your friend
People still say this despite the current year?
>There And Back Again
The animated Hobbit movie came from japan and is technically anime.
/a/ loves it unconditionally.
It's like calling Anno the master. Might have started in earnest but right now is just a reflex.
All it needed was online play.
Sorry /g/ here I just find it ironic
Is anyone reading the Injustice comic? 3.0 reminded me of it.
It's hopelessly retarded and endlessly grimdark for no real point. It's so bad it's good.
It's seriously one of the most hilarious things ever, even the bad guys need to call out the good guys on their shit some times.
What's with that batman face?
It's about time travel, rape, and other things. Truly heart-warming.
Imagine Shinji after 30 more years of dealing with shit and losing the only person who ever seemed to view him fondly.
They're very alike, though they have different ways of dealing with it.
He apparently lived with some teacher, but where was he living?
Basically, superman kills the joker and he never hears the end of it.
You haven't seen nothing yet.
Shit, it's actually Now and Then, Here and There. Sorry, it's been years since I've watched it.
Yeah, I figured that was the one you meant.
I mean, its been a while since I've read the hobbit but I don't remember that much rape or time travel
Hobbit crossover when?
I don't even think they're that different in the ways they deal with stuff. They both retract into themselves when feeling scared or hurt, and they're both romantics in the old sense of the word. In a way the only difference is that Yui took Gendo along for the ride so that when he went off the deep end he did it while being in a position of power.
I have to tell you, I read too much manga and literally no comics, It really throws you off.
Shinji was in a position of power too. The most powerful position handed to him by Lilith, in fact.
People assume that the scene has more going on than it does because it's the very last in the movie and usually final scenes bring closure. Sometimes a strangling is just a strangling.
I have to put more effort into reading Western comics because I didn't even do it at all when I was a kid. The shit produced in my own country is less familiar to me than Jap comics. I hate superheros and I don't like this whole style:
Did they shit the plugsuits when they felt all that horrible pain during the fights?
>What's with that batman face?
This comic is a goldmine.
This one is retarded, but it's in a good way. 3.0 is retarded in.... a bad way.
I'm no fan either, but I am hooked on this Injustice comic.
99% of them are total garbage, sadly
Is it ongoing or is it something old?
I find this one funny because it makes everyone into total douchebags, even the heroes.
Like Superman... he just doesn't give any fucks any more. Two-face starting shit? Superman wrecks his coin.
Holy shit, that is some serious QUALITY.
Cue Two-face crying in a corner because he literally doesn't know what to do without his coin.
I could dump the first one. It's best enjoyed when dumped, since you can get all kinds of reactions of disbelief and horror.
The entire comic is like this. Art-styles all the time, something looks like MSPAINT work.
But that was by the end of it, most of the series he sure was piloting one of the keys of instrumentality but he knew jack shit about it. But in a similar situation he would have gone down the same path. They're the kind of people that would say 'I love you and there's nothing I wouldn't do for you' and really fucking mean it.
woops, there's the image.
About the comic, I hear 3.0 got the same reaction as well - laughter and ridicule in theatres.
>Fucking Two-Face's waifu
What a fucking monster.
I just got the impression that you were implying that Shinji was never in a position of power, when he was. My mistake.
Certainly better than a Mari/Asuka dump, but better do it in /co/ and link it.
I-is that Cyborg from Teen Titans?
You know, "LET'S HIT THOSE SHOWERS!"
>will look up and shout "Save us!"... and I'll look down and whisper "No."
He fucked Batman's waifu too, The Joker
Plus it has people getting #rekt all the time. Endless source of humour.
I never got the "let's hit those showers thing", never watched teen titans
Think maybe you could dump some of it on /co/ or something and give us a link here?
It doesn't come from Teen Titans, I think. It comes from some autists sprite comic.
I'm sorry, what?
I love Calendar Man
S....superm...man y-you're s-scaring them...
It's too long.
I think I'll stop or this thread might get pruned.
I said some. Maybe Like 20 pages.
>telling others they're scaring people
I know Supermans going crazy but really Bruce?
Something about him being too stupid to multitask, he was also probably suffering a lot because he went from the 1st to the 13th Angel
You know what, I lied
How they could make a good Evangelion vydia without it being a visual novel?
They've made a few now.
Battle orchestra or whatever.
I don't think it will work, anon.
Anyone here played Detective Evangelion? Was it good?
STOP KILLING THE DOLPHINS, JAPAN!!!!!!
A complete faggot.
Are those things ever good?
>/co/ troll shitting up an Eva thread
>I know Supermans going crazy but really Bruce?
Bruce never was really that sane you know. The whole bat thing....
But Supes is kind of a dick.
Yep. But a new one would be cool.
No one's been complaining so far, there was some halfway decent discussion early on and then we got this. If anything today was more enjoyable than usual, tough yeah, it really doesn't belong here.
>there is nothing worth saving here
man that's gotta hurt.
so what's the holdup with the NGE blu-rays again?
Eva threads are only of the few ones with good content instead of the usual "Who is the best waifu? Pro tip: Its mine".
There will be always someone trolling
what, wait, what
Most likely legal stuff between Anno & Gainax
I'm no /co/ fag but are they implying alfred beat the everliving fuck out of superman?
Explain this shit
>Explain this shit
Why don't you explain THIRD and FOURTH IMPACT Anon?
The master of episode 3 is missing.
Would the announcment of a new Eva series explode /a/?
Rebuilds are all you get.
I wish I could.
New LoGH anime was announced and it went over +2000 posts.
Everytime your mom fall from hear cart its a impact. So she has falled 4 times. I hope there isn't another impact. Earth wouldn't take it.
I'm pretty sure that's what Rebuild is heading torwards. En of the movie approaches, Evil Black God shows up and interrupts Final Impact Take 3, Wille embarks on a interstellar journey to defeat him and the other soon to be revealed FAR.
this doesnt explain anything, what is going on, how come alfred can beat superman
Ok, I'm gonna guess that floor is made of cryptonite.
Alfred wants to protect the smile of Batman.
Superman failed because even if he is super, HE DOESNT HAVE THE POWER OF FRIENDSHIP
What the fuck is going on here? I thought this was a shinji homolust thread and now its just fucking injustice storytime.
to what extent did the dead sea scrolls inform SEELE about what would happen?
It's the best EVA thread in a while.
Does the religious symbolism have actual meaning? The interview says the symbols have no "religious meaning" but do they still carry metaphorical ones?
Was the TV ending the intended ending? There are a lot of different opinions on this one and I have never heard anything concrete.
Was EoE a "middle finger" to what the Eva fanbase had become?
Do you think they will make it after what happens in EoE?
I don't know but I think I just discovered how to keep undesirables away from eva threads, just post /co/ stuff and covertly talk about eva.
Superman can't help getting fucking #rekt by Alfred.
Religious symbolism has no real meaning, it just adds to the 2deep4u aspects of the show
Tv ending was due to budget restrictions, and as far as I understand EoE was the ending as anno intended it.
I think like batman invented some super power bullshit to stop superman or something I don't remember.
They didn't have religious meaning but they bring up relatively obscure stuff, stuff they wouldn't have known about it if they didn't do their homework, so they were aware what the symbols stood up for they just used them for their own purposes.
I'd put my arrow in Harley's Quiver if you catch my drift
>Does the religious symbolism have actual meaning?
None whatsoever. There might be something in Rebuild however.
>Was the TV ending the intended ending?
More or less, on a budget.
>Was EoE a "middle finger" to what the Eva fanbase had become?
>Do you think they will make it after what happens in EoE?
Nothing so far. In truth though, everything is because LOL TIMELOOPS
It's a schedule. It is written that shit ends in 2015/2016 some time.
Evageeks would disagree with you on both points.
It's more that Batsy needs to be carried.
>you now remember the abomination that were the Eva generals
Say what you will but they legitimately have great information on the series.
No, there's another story.
See, one day, Alfred saw a child playing, with a ruby, the size of a tangerine....
I actually think the symbols weren't completely random, trying to back up your argument with what evageeks says is bad form, they over-think stuff. Pic related.
>Kenneth in charge of Arkham Asylum security
What is the most overlooked thing in the series that you find interesting/brilliant.
This kid was obviously hyped to meet the master.
He is the very type of person Anno loathes.
He obviously learned nothing from his work.
Surprised how few actually know how much of a dick superman is.
Dear god that is so hilariously retarded I suspect it's fake.
The interplay between main audio and background conversations and how they play off each other.
10 bucks his waifu is Rei.
He's Japanese, what do you expect?
In all seriousnesss he is the worst
it's their in their LCL article
Why the fuck am I laughing so hard at this?
It's nothing new and I've discussed Eva to death over the years but for some reason I can't stop laughing.
>The same nose
The held shots.
Sure, people riff on them and talk about budget, but they're obviously deliberate artistic choices. And anyway they show up in the series as early as ep 4.
It's just a visual technique you don't see very often, and it can create a pretty singular atmosphere. In fact, I'd say the cinematography as a whole is just outstanding, even when it wasn't going for the abstract.
But Kenneth man, fucking Kenneth.
There is something about the sound in NGE that amazes me. I don't know if I am looking too far into this but I almost feel as if scenes have a certain rhythm to them.
They do create an interesting atmosphere. They also make room for some very fluid animation in small doses. Whereas in some anime, the animation speed and quality will remain consistent, but be lackluster.
Eva to me is, layered conversations, still frames, cicadas & trains.
being kenneth is suffering.
I guess I'll never forget there's somebody named Kenneth who works at Arkham. is he a long term running joke or just for this Injustice thing?
That whole episode was gorgeous. I'm a total sucker for scenery porn and this one had it in spades.
Rebuild doesn't disappoint in that regard either.
Yeah, rebuild sounds and looks so damn pretty (for the most part), it kind of pisses me off even more because of that, if characterization & plot had kept up it really would have been something for the ages.
No real idea. Never heard of the poor guy before.
Not to mention the fanservice.
That kind of reminds me of the credits in this movie.
Steven Spielberg. I know too much about movies.
So happy. So content.
Anno couldn't stand seeing someone who likes Rei happy. So he planned. Oh for years he planned....
And it's Arsenal...
One of his first, if I recall.
NOT FRIENDS WITH YOU BATMAN
TRYING TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD TOGETHER
One of the first he professionally directed, yes.
This is what Reifags look like.jpg
I'd buy that there's a flow to the way the dialogue and audio cues are timed and sequenced in some scenes.
It's one of the most underrated episodes, I think.
we're by far the greatest team
This is also a Reifag.
the world has ever seen
This is what Reifags look like.
Holy shit I was right.
The idea that Anno meets a Reifag and it makes his blood boil so badly it leads him to plan 3.0 just to make that kid miserable makes me laugh.
Stylish and powerful?
SOMEBODY GIVE THIS ANON HIS TEN BUCKS
"Master of the EVA", Anno isn't worth my spit.
Director, auteur and life-long shit
No need, that payed itself off.
You're a poet.
This Reifag is chockfull of good reactions. Bear in mind this is what he looked like back in 1999. He's an adult now, probably crying himself to sleep due to what Anno did to his precious Rei.
Your waifu a shit, Eva's are now a curse
at khara we strive, to lighten your purse
Eyh don't joke about that. Anno is a bad bad man.
Such a nice happy kid, but no, Anno's dark soul couldn't have let that smile remain protected.
Would you happen to have published a collection of rhymes that I might purchase?
So when anno was depressed, what exactly was he depressed about? Life in general, or was it something more specific like being lonely and not having a wife or something like that.
That's not really how depression works
He's Japanese, really quiet
What he did to Reifags caused a riot
Anno is fucking evil. Not because he's a troll, he's just supremely egoistic.
Pandering beyond compare, made for otaku creep!
Fanwank something and pretend it's deep!
Reading Injustice with /v/ was arguably one of the best things that have happened.
We laughed and laughed, and there was Dick being the best character ever until that little shit killed him.
I just fell in love, you know. Jeez.
I know that feeling. I laughed, laughed, laughed and laughed.....
Translation: SHINJI YOU BLOCKHEAD
Jesus Christ you made me remember that cunt, I feel the hatred that I forgot for that lying, manipulative piece of garbage.
Why does the series make no fucking sense and require outside reading, horseshit philosophy interpretation, and a faggot's sense of self-righteousness to "understand?"
How was my attempt at rhyming, Master-sama?>>101998589
>"big boss" langley activates 777 code on her Eva
>my *nix instincts start to kick in
It is a file permission reference, right?
...it was a rhyme?
No, it's a pachinko reference. 777. Triple-seven.
I'm absolutely serious you'll be seeing pachinko machines that have 777 and then playing that bit from Q.
>No, it's a pachinko reference
Somehow I repressed the fact that there are Eva pachinko games.
Didn't wille made reference to other tech stuff? I think I remember somebody pointing out a couple of things.
Those words don't rhyme at all?
Yeah, really anon, even if you've never gambled you should at least know it from cultural osmosis
Come on feel the noise
They did in the 80s.
I see now, it all makes sense. Everyone's making up bullshit stories and applying it to an artist that they don't know and his vague work of fiction in an effort to look intelligent.
Good job guys, you had me fooled for a while.
Except Rebuild is shit and Rei Q is also shit, that's the truth.
The key to an enduring series isn't to make it good, it's to leave everything ambiguous so people will argue about it for decades.
Yep. Though you can make a solid case for many things based on evidence present.
Before this 404s, does anyone have the pic comparing some of the locations and scenes in EoE and Rebuild?
Oh shit, I think the kid is going to shoot up the school.
You know, that show?
The one with the Rei
With those jews
Rebuild is now gay
There's no plot to build
just laser brawl
there's no depth at all
Get the Fujoshi!
No no it never fails once they're involved
Plot threads will never get resolved!
No no it never fails to try and ruse
It's always you and me that lose!
someone do better I'm tired, and send the results to oneof the regulars that do singing
>walk it off
Jesus wonder woman. Jesus christ.
