Any chance this could be continued elsewhere? I also think something has to be done in the name of Rei, exactly what I'm not sure of. But the 4chan format isn't that inviting towards quick discussion that persists, and it doesn't tie users together enough to form any relevant momentum in doing things - only en masse does that work.

Besides, /c/ is more for images.

Ah, that's fine then.

Also, anyone else come across the 凌波丽 tag on pixiv? There's some stuff on there that's tagged as that but not 綾波レイ. At first I thought it was to distinguish the real Rei from Q because 丽 looks like 00, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

Definitely agree. All over I've gotten plenty of stuff with 凌波丽, Peй Aянaми and 아야나미 레이. So many English pixiv artists tag their works with her Japanese name though, sometimes I forget that people overlook that.

My worry is the lack of a proper monetization model plus the founder's history - at one point they ran a mobile gaming platform and sold off a bunch of user data.
Nothing saying they won't do that again beyond promises, and promises are cheap.

Okay, I think our "real" options are between riot.fm (matrix framework) and Discord.

Now Discord obviously has problems. I personally believe (know, really) that not just Discord, but virtually every web service you use tracks you and your visits. This includes DuckDuckGo and similar services. Even protonmail and other secure services are vulnerable to the top percentage of threats (nation states, influential security agencies).
That's why Matrix through riot.fm is obviously a good choice since it's distributed, but there remains one problem. Who the fuck uses riot.fm? Nobody execpt those who care about their privacy, which is almost no one. From facebook to snapchat, they all own your shit forever. People don't care.

So, a service like Discord would obviously store and do analysis of everything you do or say on the service, profiling you - quite likely they'll sell the data to someone else under the table. They'd be fools not to, it's money and good money too. There's also the good old quote:

>'If you are not paying for it, you're not the customer; you're the product being sold'

Despite all of this, I say discord is probably a better choice simply because so many people use it already - it'd be a great gateway into the channel, and with time, it'd hopefully mature beyond discord. People hate signing up for shit, but if they're already signed up for discord, it's just another channel they're part of. I don't really fear the chinaman either. What is he going to do, record for posterity that I'm a Reifag? Proud to be.

I actually kind of hate Rei romances, but in a good way. They always makes my heart flutter, before plummeting back down hard. This whole final encounter in the manga always makes me choke up a bit. With how cynical and dysfunctional everything else is, such a pure and heartfelt relationship is the sweetest and saddest thing ever.

From /a/, but it was a good post:

>But perhaps the biggest change between the anime and manga isn’t found in the plot or lore but in the way the story is told. In the anime we are only ever able to see into one person’s head: Shinji—and seemingly only at the moments when he’s on the edge of personal crisis. The manga, however, gives us much more access to not only Shinji’s thoughts but also the other main characters.

>Sometimes it’s just a simple random thought bubble, but in the cases of Rei and Kaworu, they each have several scenes where we are privy to all their thoughts. Especially in the case of Rei, this changes the whole way of viewing her personality when you can concretely know her thoughts, motivations, and memories. She goes from being a mysterious, inscrutable, and sometimes even sinister human/angel hybrid into something much more mundane: a lonely, empty (physically) teenage girl.

>The problem with being so immersed in everything Evangelion is that little by little, it all bleeds together. It’s easy to assume what happens in one telling of the story happens in all iterations of the story. But the Evangelion manga has many cuts as well as additions—and not just in the number of angels.

>Much of the relationship between Asuka and Shinji is absent. While she comes to befriend him, the vast majority of scenes that build their love-hate romance are gone.

>Thus, it is the relationship between Shinji and Rei that becomes the focal point of the manga. Rei's death and the climax of the End of Evangelion are far more emotionally gripping than in the anime. In the end, it becomes not so much a story about a young man trying to deal with the emotional complexities of life (though that theme is still present) and instead becomes the story of a young woman quite literally giving the world to the boy she loves.

So apparently, Rei can't be with Shinji because:

"One of the main inspirations behind Evangelion was Freudian psychology. In it, there's this idea called the Oedipus/Electra Complex, where we model our sexual desires off of our opposite gendered parent- in Shinji's case, Yui.

This actually makes a lot of sense evolutionarily- the point of life is to reproduce, so obviously we would model ourselves based on the most sexually successful people we know as children: our parents. We'd model our sexual behavior off of our same-gender parent, and our sexual desires off our opposite gender parent.

However, this is also a sign of immaturity- instead of developing one's sexual tastes, you would be staying in a state of childhood, never advancing or individualizing.

It's pretty clear that the Evas are somewhat representative of mothers, with the entry plugs being wombs. After all, pilots are literally inside their mothers, and are submerged in a life-sustaining fluid. I'll make the stretch that LCL is representative of amniotic fluid, where life is developed and where only undeveloped children can survive in. It's fundamentally a substance that represents immaturity as a whole: both the immaturity of the pilots, and the immaturity of humanity as a whole who escape their fears and weaknesses during Instrumentality.

Shinji's story is all about that- maturing as an adult and establishing himself as an individual. In EoE, he is given a choice to either keep running away (Instrumentality), or mature (rejecting it). Of course, he initially chooses to run away, but eventually makes his big breakthrough and decides to stop running away and starts to mature. Instrumentality ends, and he has developed an identity strong enough for him to escape sea of LCL (representing him breaking away for his parents, his immaturity).
>>
Cont:

The entire show is about him eventually leaving the comfort of his mother through developing maturity and individuality. It's very Freudian in it's obsession with mothers, and it's not particularly subtle.

Now, let's look at the three love interests in the show: Rei, Misato, and Asuka. Rei is the clone of his mother. She is literally the embodiment of Yui, although she is far from it emotionally. Misato, on the other hand, is completely unrelated to Yui in either genetics or appearance, but is very much emotionally Shinji's mother. Asuka is the only one who is in no way a mother to Shinji, and in fact both looks and acts distinctly un-motherly towards him.

Considering Shinji's arc away from his mother and towards individuality, it just makes sense that he would have to end up with the only love interest that specifically doesn't have some motherly relationship with him. Therefore, Shinji has to end up with Asuka in order for his entire character arc to make sense."

Being a Rei fan, I find that to be rather insulting. Thoughts?
>>
>>3228059
Rather insulting to Rei's discovery of individuality and self agency.
The whole point of her rebellion was that she is her own person, not a doll or a supstitute mother for Shinji.

Just seems like another attempt to justify LAS. I've noticed these people have an annoying tendency to exaggerate the motherly aspects of Rei, when in reality, there really isn't all that much focus on that. There are undoubtedly Freudian themes, but what >>3228211 says is right. The main point of her struggle is finding her own sense of self and learning more what it means to be human. To write her off as a mother substitute that Shinji has to outgrow is completely disrespectful.

It's obviously nonsense. Is that your opinion? If so you've never watched the original series at all. It's a pathetic attempt to attack Rei and to make Shinji x Asuka shipping look better than it is.

Rei, not Asuka, objectively helped Shinji mature. That's why it's Rei lecturing Shinji in the end, not Asuka. It's why it's Rei that brings Shinji out of instrumentality by talking some sense into him, and it's why Rei is the one that destroys Gendo and becomes Godlike. Not Asuka.
Asuka was the very doll she accused others of being and could never have a good relationship with anyone canonically. Only in fantasy, AKA shipping.

Rei is motherly, but how exactly is that a bad trait? It's not just being "motherly", it's being responsible, caring, knowledgeable and adaptable, all great traits to have.

Stop thinking of the characters as "love interests", but characters primarily. Impossible for a Kaworu fan maybe since Kaworu has no character, but you can at least try. As characters, Rei would be the better match her being half-Yui or not.

That's also another interesting topic, originally Rei wasn't a clone of Yui either, that's some Rebuild bullshit rewrite. Rei was originally based on Yui, but she was also equal parts if not more Angel. Rebuilds killed that part of Rei simply to pander to Asukafags.
and there's a Rei discord channel now, we could discuss that there instead of spamming this thread with walls of text.

>Anno: Yeah. I have no emotional attachment to her. Well, Nobita-san wrote [about her] as being a symbol of schizophrenia. There were parts where that was actually what I wanted to do [with her].

>Takekuma: But she is the character best received by the fans in the outside world. Even I was drawn in by Rei at the beginning.

>Oizumi: That’s right. Megumi Hayashibara’s voice was also incredible.

>Anno: But Rei is [the character] I least understand. In addition, I’m not really that interested in her. There were parts where that’s what I was consciously doing, actively trying to put aside my presuppositions, trying to bring out the most primitive, the most core, the purest parts within me.

>Oizumi: So Rei is perhaps [something] embedded in your unconscious [that] can’t be expressed in words.

>Anno: Even in the midst of making Eva, I suddenly realized I had forgotten her. Her very existence. In episode seven, I remembered, and added a single shot with Rei. I had no emotional attachment to her at all. I think that was fine, because she didn’t appear in episode eight, not even for a single shot.

(From the Introduction to Chapter Four / Parano)

In other words, Anno doesn't like Rei.

He diverges with every question he gets into "I don't care" or "I don't understand", which means he's hostile to Rei, being even unable to summon up the will to give them a decent answer.

Who created Ayanami in the anime?

I know that Anno does not like Rei because he still can not accept the fact that Rei is more popular than Asuka

In the manga, Sadamoto was influenced by Anno to separate Shinji and Ayanami or was it his own will to do so?
>>
>>3230046
Sadomoto just played up the tragic love angle. Rei was originally added to the anime to entice Ikuhara to jump on board, then Anno turned her into a subversion of moe archetypes (ironically, redefining moe). When designing her, Anno told Sadomoto "Whatever else, she needs to be painted in as a bitterly unhappy young girl with little sense of presence." Sadomoto kind of did the rest, so it makes sense that he'd have more sympathy for her.

Yeah no, that's bulshit. The name Rei was chosen partly due to wish to have Ikuhara on team.
Then Rei was no created as a subversion of moe archetypes. You even hint that it's impossible because Rei more or less created the moe archetype itself.

Asuka was the subversions.

Why do Reifags always ship her with Shinji, while Asukfags always seem to hate him?
>>
>>3231243
Asukafags are actually more likely to ship than Rei fans. Even many of the ones who hate him ship LAS (don't know what's up with that). In general, I think the reason people who like Rei are more positive about Shinji is because they both treat each other quite well. There's no bickering or violence, and there are several sweet moments shared between the two. It also helps that Shinji's really the only character shown to value Rei's life beyond her intended purpose.

Original.

>>3231243
In the original, you can like Rei for being Rei. Rei on her own is a plenty fine character whose actions validate her, the story validates her and she's like Shinji puts it: strong. Despite having nothing.

But you can't like Asuka for being Asuka. Neither can you like Kaworu for being Kaworu. Asuka is a doll with the bitch setting always on, and Kaworu is a psychopath whose best effort at love was mortal betrayal and suicide. Their actions alone don't validate them, nor does the story. It condemns them as agents of escapism.

Both Kaworu and Asuka can ONLY have value through interpretational frameworks, i.e it's not the character that is glorified as much as it's the concept of the character with another character, Shinji being that unlucky fellow. Outside winning some imaginary "championship" colloquiallly known as the Shinjibow, neither Kaworu or Asuka has value.

That's why Rei is by far the most popular character in Japan, but still isn't close to the other two in terms of having a fanbase that ships. It's also why the otaku part of the audience in Japan always preferred Asuka - not that the Rei otaku weren't elated about Rei, but demographically, they were inferior.

>I know she is Rei/Lilith, but she could not be considered as Rei yet?
That's not what he meant, I think.

Rei is Lilith and vice versa, but that "angel" there is a genderbent version of an Angel figure based on Tabris, AKA Kaworu.So it's not really Rei, even though it looks like Rei more than it does Kaworu. Most of those "angel" figures of that line looked like Rei.

Kaworu is a turd.

Did you mean to reply to me? I was saying I didn't know why Asukafags who hated Shinji shipped LAS (Shinji & Asuka).

Rei is a Shinjifag.

While on the topic of romances, Asuka would be great too if Shinji and her could bond over their similar backgrounds. I think that Shinji is really the only one who could kind of "get" where Asuka is coming from, assuming he remembers what happened to Yui. However, the only romances we get in the main series are Asuka in the TV+EoE and Rei in Rebuild 1.0-2.0 and the manga, and it's rather unfair since Rei's romances are deep and philosophical while Asuka's are always shallow (based on lust), toxic, and dysfunctional.

Definitely.

Reminder to not be bothered by the Rebuilds or the spinoffs as they're just the result of Anno being a butthurt cunt about Rei being best girl.

I liked Rebuild and Manga Rei though. In the original series, Rei's character pretty much stagnated after episode 6. Even Anno admitted he forgot about Rei in the TV version. Rebuild/Manga Rei gets a ton of spotlight in comparison, and their overall arc is better, so that you actually feel angry over the whole Q situation. And whatever else, at least Rebuild demolished the whole "emotionless doll" thing.

Anno explained that the TV version of Rei was overwhelmingly more attractive because she was a mystery, however, by the time that the series was complete, she was known to the fans. In light of that, the movies opted to work more with Asuka and the fans caught on.

>ANNO: The truth is, I have no emotional attachment to Rei at all.
>In the midst of making Eva, I suddenly realized that I had forgotten her. Her very existence. For example, in episode seven, I remembered and added one shot with Rei. I had no attachment to her at all. I think that was okay, because in episode eight, she didn't appear. Not even in a single shot.
>Episode 6 was too early.
>At the end Rei says "I don't know what to do," and Shinji says, "I think you should smile," and Rei smiles. ... Afterwards, when I thought about it, I cursed. In short, if she and Shinji completely "communicated" there, then isn't she over with? At that moment, Rei, for me, was finished.
>When she smiled, she was already finished, this character.

anno fucked up

No it didn't, it made it ten times worse you retard.

>before
>Rei not portrayed as mindless doll

>after
>Rei portrayed as mindless doll
So go fuck yourself.

>>3232839
This is also such bullshit. Anno rewrites Rei character to be mindless and boring, and he admits that he worked more with Asuka so the fans would "catch on", and it's still a mystery why the Rebuilds are being made?
>>
>>3232969
Rei still gets the most beautiful romance and arc in Eva through the manga though. Asuka's arc is just painful and she never resolves her hangups or meaningfully connects to the others.
>>
>>3232981
That's your idealized opinion. In reality, Rei as her own character is never really fully realized, even if that's also true for others.

It was a cop-out ending.
>>
The Rei community is probably the best eva community. I can't find serious discussion anywhere else.

This is Rei, right? I'd like to think it is, but it's not tagged properly and I wanna be absolutely sure. What do you guys think?
