Man, there needs to be more anime with strong male leads. I don't mean boys that act cowardish most of the time and then go batshit insane and cry and shit. I mean independent, capable, intelligent men.
This is one of the reasons why I love Murakami´s works. His male characters don't just act tough, they ARE tough. They know their shit and they can handle themselves.
Picture related; although I do understand that there are physical differences between men and women, his character is just plain fucking weak. He's in this badass Nerv org but is still portrayed as a typical cuntboy and baaaws and shit. I'm liking the anime so far, but everytime he cries I rage a bit.
Alright, I'm done venting. I should stop taking this seriously. =(
Shinji is pretty cool for the middle portion of the story. He only goes crazy and weak during the beginning and end
Anime needs more strong male leads!
lawl well played
i think shinji is a pretty cool guy. eh goes crazy and weak during the beginning and end and doesnt afraid of anything.
If Shinji had a cock in his mouth for about 20 episodes, the anime would have been so much better.
Yes, and the 'middle portion' in NGE was the episodic angel battles. Showing his weakness wasn't as important then as it was at the beginning/end.
