>just done watching episode 8
How do reifags even exist?
>>
>>176766103
Watch the rest of the series, and you will understand why the dislike surrounding Asuka is warranted.
>>
>>176766103
Because action arc was the weakest of the show. Mostly because of her, Kaji redeemed it somewhat.
>>
>>176766103
Oh man, first time watching it? Get ready for a ride, anime won't ever be as good again
Ep. 8 is one of my favorites, Kaji and Asuka are introduced
>>
>>176766103
She hasn't even started yet.
>>
>>176766313
Rest of the series make Asuka even more likable. Her character flaws are front-loaded in the show and she grows quite a bit
Remember the episode with the power outage? Like 1/3 of the episode is her chewing Shinji and Rei. It never gets that bad again
>>
>>176766103
>there are people posting on /a/ who haven’t watched Eva
Literally what the fuck?

I appreciated Rei a lot more on the second watch through, her personality is subtle and good. Asuka is still superior though.

>>176766313
You're a Reifag because Asuka is bad and not because Rei is good? Ew.

It does, it really does. She fucking celebrates a fellow pilot might die a few episodes later. Rei humored her and let her stroke her own ego during the blackout episode until shit actually mattered. but in Ep 16 even Rei felt compelled to stop the bitch on the spot.
>>
>>176767129
She doesn't grow at all, she regresses quite a bit that causes a break down. The audience either feels sorry for her flight, or grows to hate her because of how she treats other people.
>Remember the episode with the power outage? Like 1/3 of the episode is her chewing Shinji and Rei. It never gets that bad again
Someone conveniently forgets her behavior regarding Shinji for no reason in episode 16, so much that Rei almost slapped her. After that, Asuka continued to act unreasonable when she started yelling how much she hates Shinji, Rei and Misato in the shower.

>>176767134
I'm not a characterfag, try again.
>>
>>176767328
You could literally feel that Ayanami wanted to slap Asuka so badly, but restrained herself. That says it all, Asuka feels nothing towards Shinji while Rei feels an attachment to him.
>>
>>176767369
She was lucky, you don't bad mouth Ikaris in front of Rei.

Evangelion was a clear attempt by (((them))) to create a divide in the anime community, and they succeeded.
All it took was creating a show chock full of meaningless Jewish symbolism that is there just because it "looked cool", as Anno himself admitted, and presenting it as intellectual shit you need a high IQ to understand.
Therefore, anyone who is able to see through it is ridiculed as "stupid" or "2deep4u". Not to mention that they keep fucking up and redoing the ending, since such a mess is impossible to wrap up correctly.
Fuck this pathetic excuse of a show.

Reifags only like rei because they want a literal fucktoy with very little personality. It’s the subdued subservient wife fetish. They want to have the loyalty that she has with Gendo. Asuka is for anons with good taste.

She fucked him over. Wanna talk about a subservient wife fetish? Asuka was the one that was a limp fuck toy in EoE and latter said something along the lines "you can do whatever you want with me as long as I have you all to myself"

>Reifags out in full force
Kek, I much prefer Asuka
It's just that calling Rei "subservient" is a speedwatcher-tier comment. As soon as she figured the world out a bit better she starts doing what she wants
Sure, she accepted risking her life for NERV over some "it's my bond to people" idea that doesn't hold up to scrutiny very well - But that's way better than Asuka's "I just want to be famous lmao" and Shinji's "I don't even know why I pilot it honestly". Despite being a weird test tube baby, she started series more grown-up than Shinji in all likelihood
>>
>>176768186
Really it's more of a commentary on escapism. The whole "nobody understands me" thing is because Shinji doesn't let (or really want) anybody to understand him. The last two episodes is basically the show screaming this at Shinji.
>>
>>176768736
>being a slave is more grownup
How isn’t she a slave/ subservient?
Asuka has a reason and chooses to, shinji has no reason, rei does it because she can’t do anything else.
>>
>>176767332
She also says she hates herself

>>176768854

How stupid can you be? Right now I was watching ep 15 and this happened. Rei also best wife confirmed.
>>
>>176768649
>her trait is subservience
She never relegated her own judgement behind somebody else's, She obeyed Gendo because she trusted him, but, fucked him over the once she realized he didn't deserve that trust. Played along with Asuka's 'I'm the boss' routine when it didn't matter but when it mattered she showed her who's boss for real. Slapped Shinji when he badmouthed Gendo, Nearly did the same with Asuka when she talked shit of Shinji. Disobeyed orders to pull back because she realized how catastrophic it would be for an angel to get to unit 01. She killed herself but did it not out of subservience but because she thought it was for the greater good. Rei was never subservient. Shinji is the subservient one, literally went through life doing what others expected of him because they expected it of him never and he needed their approval, makes sense because of the irl circumstances that Anon said led him to his crisis back then.
Rei was a caged god, might have seemed in the control of others never really was.
>>
>>176768979
Going by the usual Asukafag talking points on Rei, conveniently ignoring that Asuka some how isn't a good slave for NERV and SEELE. Rei however got off her binding chains, Asuka did not and never intended to.

You are correct to be watching Eva. Pls continue all the way to the end of EoE, which will then become your favourite movie. After that:

When will you all realize that Misato is best girl?
>>
>>176772563
I always liked her/Kaji
I have no idea why people call her slutty, she is still hung up on him and Kaji himself is actually a relatively well-adjusted guy. His suave exterior is basically only to enable his job as a spy
I know Misato offered Shinji sex to help him cope with grief but that was probably more due to exasperation (her utter inability to do anything more as a guardian) than actually getting a kick from sleeping around. As far as we know, she wasn't doing that in all the years after Kaji

It would be difficult to continue that earlier somber mood after Ramiel, where Rei was willing to go alone and tried to protect Shinji with her life, and Shinji demonstrated that was unacceptable to him. But Asuka really does brush that stuff aside. She's awesome and those other two are just barely awesome enough to be there with her, so they should act like it.

The fact that people are angels makes it obvious that Lilith was a retcon. The show clearly builds up speculation on what the second angel is, and having it be humanity would be a much more dramatic revelation than it just being another god-like alien. Also the angel ordering would make sense then, because it would be chronological.
>>
>>176785175
It's basically the same reveal anyway since humanity came from Lilith.
>>
>>176775328
How hard could a bow and a "gomenasai" be? Its not like she would be blushing or anything.
>>
>>176785175
>The show clearly builds up speculation on what the second angel is, and having it be humanity would be a much more dramatic revelation
But that would have made the Adam, Lilith & Eve (Eva) Reference make no sense. Certainly there's a chance that the 'monster' on the basement was retconned into being Lillith and not Adam. But the second angel had to be Lilith (or an Eve but that one's too basic)
>>
>>176766103
Asuka is fundamentally broken, Rei got her shit together in the end. I value progress.
>>
>>176785563
>Certainly there's a chance that the 'monster' on the basement was retconned into being Lillith and not Adam.
Oh it undoubtedly was. The draft scripts for episode 24 lack that revelation.
>But that would have made the Adam, Lilith & Eve (Eva) Reference make no sense.
I think you overthink the religious references. The plot came first, they came after.
>>
>>176785367
For all the stuff detractors say about Eva's symbolism being there just to be cool they're pretty consistent with the actual symbols they're referencing.
Lilith is supposed to be a demon that births countless children and NGE's Lillith is basically what she does. Eve is born of Adam and the Evas are Born of NGE's Adam. Eve is was a replacement of Lilith like Unit 01 was meant to replace Lilith for instrumentality etc..
>>
>>176785584
I wouldn't call the end result of planet Earth in EoE being Rei getting her shit together, unless that was all on purpose.
>>
>>176785584
Asuka gets treatment in a battle with MP evas, where she found out that Eva02 is her Mama. And then she leaves Instrumentality along with Shinji
>>
man im at episode 21 and what the hell this is actually taking a toll on my soul
>>
>>176787076
Why do you think it wasn't on purpose?
>>
>>176787076
Rei was Lillith, Humanity was her shit, she got it all together.
>>
>>176787460
>this is actually taking a toll on my soul
Is that the backstory episode? you're done with it?
if not prepare for incoming crying Misato, seriously that was the most heartbreaking moment in the show for me for how grounded it was.
>>
>>176787228
The MP Eva battle was just a final tantrum that got completely shut down. Her interaction with Shinji after shows she is bitter as hell over what happened - though justly so.
>>
>>176769299
>Choker
KEK

Never understood the hard-on for EVA & obligation to tell others: 'tis good, man'.
The obligatory clapping is just herd behavior at this point. I could get people who had their symbolism virginity lost while watching the show, but any self-respecting individual who had consumed other works of fiction would frown upon them.
Heck, in my list, Youjo Senki is way above eva.

BLOW IT OUT YOUR ASS, /A/.

There aren't that many Eva fanfics I'd consider objectively good, if any.
The 2nd Try is probably the one I like most from a shipper perspective.

So which manga is it you fags are telling me to read? Just Neon Genesis Evangelion? Or some spinoff/continuation?

I've watched more anime than you faggot, including everything that inspired Anno to make Eva.

>a child who doesn't realize how dire the situation is
No wonder, all she cares about is having the higher sync scores. Her reaction to losing a pilot is to act smug instead of shitting her pants at the idea that humanity just lost one third of it's Angel-fighting troops. She threats her job as if it is some sort of game.
>>
>>176789525
The Official Main one, spinoff are spinoffs, you only check them out if you're really into the franchise but want something pretty different than the main story.

Only because Rei saved her life by tanging her and allowed people to come back. Asukafags need to show some respect to Best Girl, the one who saved their inferior wife.

How?
>hammered right on your fucking head
Yes, the characters are emotionally damaged teenagers, what were you expecting?
>suffering at every turn
It's a dark show about the dark side of the human experience, so this is a problem how?
>entire second half
Would you have rathered it continue as being a slightly darker than average but run-of-the-mill shonen anime? That's not all it delved into either, in terms of psychology and philosophy.
>anti-heroism
anon, the characters are human beings, not heroes, villians, or anything in between, they're just complex characters.
>mommy/daddy issues
It's understandable that Shinji hated Gendo, it's understandable that Misato losing her dad at a young age caused her problems, it's understandable that witnessing your mother commit suicide and your father and step-mom acting like it was no big deal caused a lot of psychological and emotional problems for Asuka, on and on, why is this a problem in a story about fucked up people and their fucked up lives?
There's nothing wrong with post-modernism (inb4 omg bait lmao), Eva is a damn good character drama.
Asuka is only good for lewds (now this is bait).

If you aren't an asshole, and you value her as a human being, you treat and respect her as she deserves, than j'd imagine she might be willing to get a little subservient. If you're an asshole though, definitely she won't put up with that shit.
