There are some things I just do not understand. Why is everyone so hesitant to tell Shinji who the fourth child is? Why is Asuka so pissed at who the fourth child is? Why does Rei speak to the fourth child, she doesn't speak to anybody. Why is Shinji such a bitch when he fucks up the fourth child?

If it was me and I just ripped apart the Eva being driven by the faggot who bullied me and crushed his little tube, I'd be laughing. Shinji didn't even have a part in it and he screams like a bitch.

>Why does Rei speak to the fourth child, she doesn't speak to anybody.
Sure she does, just not that often.

She came to look for Shinji, IIRC. Perhaps even to tell him that.
>>
The thing about Eva that you have to understand is that everyone is too beta to ever do anything reasonable. People lose sight of this fact by fixating on Shinji's betaness, but just because he's the most beta of them all does not negate the fact that practically the entire cast is clinically beta.
>>
eva is a terrible show character wise.
>>
>>102163307
Way to miss the point you dense cunt.
>>
What I didn't understand, was that if he was Shinji's "friend", why didn't he then immediately do what he could to save him? Disable the eva, and rip him out?

Every kid in the class is a possible child. Anyone could have been chosen.

>>102163634
Yes, I am dense as fuck. That's why I'm asking you guys: why the fuck was everyone, even Asuka the bitch who never thinks about anyone, hesitant to reveal the truth to Shinji?

Edgy.
>>
>>102163307
You do realize Shinji and Toji became friends, right?

Toji admitted to being an ass and being ignorant about the struggles of being an Eva pilot, and Shinji accepted the apology.
>>
>>102163559
>Why is everyone so hesitant to tell Shinji who the fourth child is?
Because Shinji will flip his shit, which is exactly what he did.
>Why is Asuka so pissed at who the fourth child is?
She probably didn't like him much, and knowing Asuka, she'd be pissed no matter who it was.
>Why does Rei speak to the fourth child, she doesn't speak to anybody.
She speaks to people.
Why is Shinji such a bitch when he fucks up the fourth child?
Because he was forced to almost kill his best friend, in fact, one of his only few friends, and one of only 2 male friends.
>>
>>102163307
>Why is everyone so hesitant to tell Shinji who the fourth child is?
Poor timing and not knowing how well he would handle it.
>Why is Asuka so pissed at who the fourth child is?
Because she hates Touji.
>Why does Rei speak to the fourth child, she doesn't speak to anybody.
It is not that uncommon for Rei to speak.

>>102163667
He didn't know Touji was in the Eva when he was fighting it.
>>
>>102163808
Toji revealed his true nature and deserves to be crushed inside that tube for being a faggot. Shinji is too beta to realize it.
>>
>>102163814
But Why would Shinji flip his shit? You'd think he might feel better at having his friend be a pilot so he has more support. Shinji flipped his shit at mutilating his friend, we don't know how he would have reacted without the other circumstances.

Why are you so upset? Toji is pretty bro after the apology.
>>
Didn't one of his family members die or get fucked up? So does that mean the unit they put Toji in had his relative's soul in it, so that it would protect him? Instead it just flipped its shit, though?

Was that how it worked?
>>
>>102163559
>>102164013
People who talk about Eva characters being "beta" are retarded children who should go back to watching Gurren Lagann.
>>
>>102164056
I doubt he would love having his friend's lives be put in danger along with his own.
It's bad enough everyone he knows is in constant danger of being killed by their own superior, or from fighting demigods, but now one of the two people he's friends with that he thinks is safe is going to be join that category now too.
>>
Toji and Kensuke are Shinji's only friends.

I'm not sure if you noticed, but piloting an Evangelion isn't all fun and games, and Shinji finds it to be a very harrowing and stressful experience that he wouldn't wish on his worst enemy, let alone his best friend. Shinji is "such a bitch" because he was forced to maim his best friend against his will. You're pretty clearly a dumbfuck who doesn't pay attention, so I'm guessing you didn't realize that Toji lost a leg. Anyone that isn't emotionally stunted would be pretty torn up about permanently crippling their best friend.

Asuka is pissy because her self-value is totally based on her status as an Eva pilot, and another pilot decreases that worth. She's also just a generally pissy teenage girl, and she doesn't like Toji.

Rei talks to Toji because she's concerned about Shinji. Toji even explicitly explains her behavior in the scene where she talks to him.

You are an edgy idiot, OP.
>>
>>102164187
No, his sister was still alive.
>>
OP here, I'm pretty pissed off that that asshole Toji did not die a painful death. I was gleeful when it showed his girlfriend cooking for a dead man, then suddenly he's alive despite having been fucked up badly moments ago and crushed. What the fuck.

Now I'm gonna guess that he becomes a villain or someshit down the line. What a disaster. I just want him dead. I never liked him.
>>
>>102164230
Shinji finding out Toji is old now in Rebuild was probably the saddest part for me, actually. That would crush me, that I was so completely out of their lives and left behind.
>>102164263
But was there 'anyone' in his unit, then? For the whole AT field thing to work.
>>
>>102164187
All of the students in Shinji's class are candidates for being Eva pilots, so it is likely that all of them have at least one dead parent that could be used in the Eva. Unit 3 went berserk because it was taken over by an Angel, though.

>>
>>102164366
Ah, then I'd simply forgotten that detail, thanks. My reasoning was going off of Rei's unit flipping out and trying to kill her due to some crazy ego issues she suffers as a soul clone or whatever.
>>
>>102164187
Toji's sister got injured in the first angel attack. Everyone in Shinji's class doesn't have a mother. The commonly held theory is that all Evas have someone's soul in it, but that's never explicitly confirmed. All we know is that Unit 02 has at least part of Kyoko's soul in it, and that Yui is in Unit 01.

Unit 03 goes berserk because it's infected by an angel.

You seem to forget that Shinji flipping his shit was required for Gendo's plan.

No anon, pretending to be retarded doesn't count as trolling.

ALL ACCORDING TO GENDO-SAMA'S MASTER PLAN

My post had nothing to do with that irrelevant shit pile, fagbag.

>>102164336
I'm not that keen on Rebuild, but didn't Toji and Kensuke die?
>>
>>102164551
Was it really? How did it help?
>>
>>102164677
It furthered deteriorated Shinji's mental state which was required for his part in the 3rd Impact.
>>
>>102164666
ok I was just commenting but ok
>>102164671
I really don't recall if it was explicitly stated, but maybe? I feel the sentiment still holds seeing as Toji went and had a kid, so Shinji definitely missed out on being a kid and growing up with the guy.

I thought
man
fuck this I didn't pay attention to that fucking movie!
shit, I have to rewatch it!
>>
The first time I watched EVA I wanted Touji to take over the show so I wouldn't have to stand Shinji anymore.
Then that faggot angel possessed the EVA-03.
>>
>>102166554
Wait I thought the EVA just went berserk and the angel part was a lie.
>>
>>102166745
There was an explosion inside the planes that transported the EVAs and only the unit 3 survived.
That was, apparently, when the angel hide inside the EVA-03.

>Why is everyone so hesitant to tell Shinji who the fourth child is?
Because it's fucking Shinji and the littlest thing is enough to completely mindfuck him. But more specifically, piloting EVAs is the scariest fucking thing in the world to Shinji and he wouldn't wish it on his worst enemy, much less his one of his only friends.
>Why is Asuka so pissed at who the fourth child is?
Because in Asuka's eyes Toji's a fucking mook, a low-class idiot and exactly the sort of person that Asuka the genius EVA pilot should be better than. Some buffoon like Toji becoming a pilot immediately takes away part of what makes Asuka special and she fucking hates that.
>Why is Shinji such a bitch when he fucks up the fourth child?
Several things to consider here: A) Shinji pretty much has had no friends his entire life, so kinda by default Toji is his closest friend. B) The whole reason Shinji's been piloting EVA is to protect people (and receive recognition, whatever), hence his refusal to fight even before he knew Toji was in the rogue EVA. Actually being forced to hurt a person he knows goes against everything he's been fighting for so far. C) Everyone not only hid the fact that Toji was the pilot, but they sent him into battle knowing so. Then his father forced him to nearly kill his only friend. It's a pretty fucking huge betrayal and enough to push anyone over the edge.

Basically, despite Toji clobbering Shinji, Toji is one of two friends Shinji's ever had and he cares for him a lot.
>>
>>102163307
You couldn't tell Shinji he was out of milk without him flipping his shit, it is no surprise that they didn't tell him anything important until they was backed in a corner.

Toji and his friend were the only characters who didn't piss me off. He needed more screen time.
