My life was meaningful, because of you.
Advice & Trust. Chapter And please, call me Kaworu, everyone." . But Shinji and Asuka's lo- relationship is of great importance to me. A description of tropes appearing in Advice and Trust. Shinji takes just the slightest different action when Asuka offers a kiss and everything changes. Kaworu is Shinji's first exposure to unconditional love. Shinji craves love. He fears it. So someone's advice might be. "You just need to go out.
My life was meaningful, because of you. I'm afraid you won't find any angst here - Only fluff! I blog Anime-verse, Rebuild-verse and manga-verse. Here are 20 valid reasons why the relationship between Kaworu and Shinji can be viewed as a romantic one.
In the movie poster for Evangelion 3. Heartbreaking, but I think it applies. A heart shaped tree! Notice how the tree forms two branches from one root? Whether it was subconsciously or not, Shinji waits for Kaworu to finish his synch tests. And then blushes like crazy when Kaworu addresses it! The bath scene is one that always sticks in people minds. If he were uncomfortable, then surely he would have rejected these advancements like he did with Misato in episode 23 - just one episode before!
Not to mention that Shinji says he loves him too. Whether he meant it in a romantic way or not is debatable, but the bottom line is Kaworu provides nothing but unconditional love and acceptance for Shinji, so I think it is foolish to claim that there is no way possible for Shinji to harbour feelings for him.
I think that the original drafts for episode 24 sum it up pretty well. Part of the premise of this story is altering the event where her downward spiral began her and Shinji's ruined First Kiss and seeing if she can avoid becoming a fully broken ace. So far her self-esteem has suffered a few severe blows but she has managed to hold herself together. In chapter 1 Shinji and Asuka open up and talk about their pasts their mothers' demises, their fathers' abandonment, their lack of friends, their feelings of insolation and loneliness, their self-worth and trust issues The one my father abandoned me with after my mother died in an accident with the Eva!
Not that you'd understand that. There was an accident with Unit Your father abandoned you after your mother was gone.
You have nightmares all the time about it. You feel lonely and cold at night, because no one ever held you after that. You never had many friends before you came here.
No on ever wanted to just talk to you for you. Your father never explained or apologized for why he just left you. No one even tried to understand your pain. You miss her every day, but don't even have any pictures, barely any memories.
No one tells you about her. And there was never any point in talking about it to anyone, because there was no one in the world who could understand what being an Evangelion Pilot was like. When Shinji and Asuka got together and befriended Rei, the Children became a bit happier due to their stronger emotional bonds. They're still traumatized teenagers, but they smile more often and they're actually hopeful about their future.
And they've become better warriors, too. Maya idolizes Ritsuko to the point of having a crush on her.
However Ritsuko sees herself as an idiot who makes awful decisions in order to try to seduce an asshole who does not care about her, and she is afraid that she will become this to Maya if her assistant realizes how horrible she really is.
In chapter 8 Ritsuko explicitly thinks that she is not who Maya believes she is. In chapter 9, Hikari explains what listening to Shinji and Asuka's thoughts when she was mind-linked with them was like: Touji is guilty of this. In chapter 8 he tries to talk about his friend and Asuka behaving as a couple: It's too weird, watching you and the Red De In chapter 6 Gendo berates Rei for not obeying him and threatens her with "consequences" should she fail in following and executing his orders and only his orders to the letter.
Keeping in mind that he knows she is a Physical God capable of liquefying him with a mere thought and protected with an impenetrable barrier, he should think twice before threatening her, especially since she has begun ignoring his orders. It's not just with Rei either. Gendo has made it a hobby to torment, abuse, ignore, insult, and mistreat his best Child Soldiers who are the only viable pilots for the 50 foot mecha absolutely mission critical for his "scenario. He has yet to realize how wrong he is in thinking that he has them all completely under his thumb and can get away with it.
Kaji gardens and grows watermelons because he wants to make something he likes before dying since he thinks the world is ending.

In chapter 8 he and Misato drag the pilots down to his watermelon patch and the kids spend some time gardening and weeding. Calling the Old Man Out: Asuka chews out Yui during a cross-synch test for abandoning Shinji and being compliant with SEELE in chapter 10, though the two of them do manage to reach something of an understanding by the end of their discussion. Cannot Spit It Out: In the prologue Misato thinks Shinji is incapable of confessing his feelings to Asuka and she tries to encourage him to admit them to her.
Shinji answers with the usual excuses: Before that, though, they had been unable to spit it out: Shinji did not believe that Asuka liked him, Asuka was too proud to admit that she had fallen for him, and both were frightened of rejection. Played straight with Lilith. She was in love with Adam before they became the carriers for the souls of the FAR and never admitted her feelings. Her desire to be with him was the reason why both of them ended up on the same planet.
Chihiro Tanaka, a character originally created in Once More with Feeling is Shinji, Asuka and Rei's classmate and makes several appearances where she tries woo Shinji and pry him away from Asuka and Rei Gendo thinks his son and Asuka's relationship consists of Shinji being infatuated with her and dependent on her despite her abusing him and detesting him.
He is very wrong. They used to fight and need each other simultaneously, but they got over the "Can't live with them" part when he was not paying attention.
Rei is naturally blunt, but in chapter 8 she makes very obvious statements because her emotion-numbing medication is messing up her mind: Due to a misunderstanding, all Shinji's female classmates convinced themselves that he is some sort of stud and is in a three-ways relationship with Asuka and Rei ironically they are accidentally not so off the mark: Shinji and Asuka are dating secretly, and Rei is in love with both, but she does not want to disrupt their relationshipso they start to lust after him and chase him, much to his chagrin he only wants Asuka and Asuka's wrath, who complains that they think he is "Shinji the Casanova" when he is hers.
Asuka displayed a very playful, smug and self-satisfied grin after being kissed by Shinji in front of all their classmates in chapter 8. This story's mood and tone shift constantly due to the author's desire to blend W. In a single episode you can go from wacky teenager antics to mecha action to a character considering committing suicide to two children in love snuggling up on their bed. Asuka's plan in chapter 8 was meant to mess with Misato's mind and show subtly that they had matured since they were together: Asuka can now control her temper, both teens care about each other and are comfortable with their bodies and with sexuality to the point they can have fun with some fantasy without ruining their real relationship Ritsuko deliberately wanted to take things slowly with Maya since she had just come out of an emotionally abusive relationship with Gendo.
She felt positively giddy at times. Maya wanted her just for being her. Maya wanted to hold her, say her name softly, and wake up next to her. Without either of them saying three little words, without a kiss or anything, they were Although, after that, and as Ritsuko slowly becomes more and more comfortable with their relationship, they start kissing and eventually perform the deed at Ritsuko's apartment.
Shinji is a giant robot pilot and he also cooks for his teammates.
As soon as the first chapter it is pointed out that he makes delicious meals. A few chapters later he was shattering a Robeast to pieces. She and Shinji defeat Bardiel by cracking the Organ, avoiding destroying the Unit. Later they have to help Rei to fight Zeruel but they can not use their own giant robots, so that they hijack the intact Unit During the battle it runs out of power Kensuke, after Rei invokes Magnetic Girlfriend.
Asuka and Shinji have a hard time grasping how this happened. Kensuke Aida has two girlfriends. I want off this planet, Shinji. Shinji, Asuka and Rei, fourteen-year-old kids drafted to pilot war mechs and fight a war against giant alien monsters.
Asuka and Rei have been training her whole lives for it, and the former is especially devoted to it. Often they talk about how broken they are due to being someone else's tools. Sayaka and Kyoko had been best friends ever since they were little and they've been engaged in a Secret Relationship for several years. Shinji and Asuka got together but they are keeping it a secret.
Kaworu and Shinji (Relationship)
She is extremely possessive and protective of Shinji because "You're cute, you like me, you're a fantastic kisser, and you understand what it's like [to be me]". Coincidentally, all their female classmates have all of sudden convinced themselves that he is a Casanova and a god of sex and are trying to hook up with him, and their behaviour is an endless source of frustration and rage to Asuka because she can not claim him publicly or just kill her rivals someone might notice.
Ironically Rei does not provoke Asuka's jealousy — after a while — however, she is also extremely close to Shinji because Rei respects their bond and she has even helped to drive Shinji's would-be suitors away. Asuka liked Shinji, Rei cared for Shinji, and all of his female classmates had a huge crush on Shinji He never even noticed.
It changes throughout the history, though. He accidentally got a hint Asuka was throwing at him and they got together Asuka treats her Unit 02 as if it was alive and talks to it.
5 Reasons Why Shinji and Kaworu Were Born to Meet Each Other
After discovering their robots ARE alive and their mother's souls are locked within, Asuka realizes that is the reason her synch rose and her robot went berserker when she talked to it. From that point onward Shinji and Asuka start to talk to their robots more often. Shinji and Asuka are both orphans dead mothers, abandoned by fathers. And Hikari who also becomes a pilot. And all of their classmates. Eventually Shinji and Asuka start to suspect it is indeed very convenient that all pilots are half-orphans whose surviving parental figure works for NERV.
When they compare notes on their mothers' deaths and after Hikari tells them she felt her mother inside her robot they realize what has happened to their mothers and that NERV is behind their deaths. Converse with the Unconscious: In chapter 2 Shinji talks to Asuka while she is unconscious to tell her she makes him happy and he will never leave her. Misato tries acting like this to her wards, taking care of them, trying to protect them and even encouraging Shinji to confess his feelings to Asuka.
As their relationship develops and strengthens, Shinji, Asuka, and Rei start to do this for each other when one of them is upset. In chapter 7 Rei — who was upset after being forced to not see Shinji and Asuka for two days — hugged Shinji and after Asuka, giving her an additional hug on Shinji's behalf.
The three of them felt comforted and calmer for it. I get my best friend killed, I get fired from the job I've had my whole life, I get replaced by a program, I'm fucking useless " Asuka pinched her eyes shut and fought down tears. She nearly gasped as she felt Rei put her arms around her.
I missed my friends. You are not useless. You have saved me from drugged stupor. You fought superbly and defeated the Angel even though you had only one arm left. You can not advance. Although they manifest it in different ways, it is evident that Shinji and Kaworu are happy when they are together. We know that Shinji does not know how to communicate properly, but does Kaworu show impatience or annoyance?
Still, despite of his multiple traumas, Shinji is capable of doing many things. Among such things, we can see that Shinji can make Kaworu happy, as Shinji reassuringly tells Kaworu that Shinji is glad to meet Kaworu or talk to him. Shinji talks about his life before being called to NERV and how he simply existed without minding others, and how Shinji used to hate his father.
It is on this scene where Kaworu tells him maybe he was born to meet him. The conversation was intimate but strange at the same time, but this shows how Shinji is able to open up and feel comfortable enough with Kaworu. By treating Shinji with respect, Kaworu is showing his ability to love.
Which leads us to the final reason… 5. Because Shinji and Kaworu change for the better Evangelion 3. Yet, Kaworu apparently decided to do something different. It appears as if meeting and bonding with Shinji played a key role in his change of mind. Thus, in the original version Kaworu requests Shinji to kill him, as humanity will not survive as long as he lives. As for the Rebuild version, Kaworu stops the Fourth impact before the killing device cuts his head, not without reassuring Shinji that it was the right thing to happen and that he was happy from having met him.
Needless to say that Shinji receives yet another shock from losing someone who understood him to such a deep level. At least on the original version, this loss opens his eyes about his own potential and how Shinji cannot remain indecisive or passive if he wants to survive.
Closing Paragraph If there is something Evangelion does right and has been distinguished for since its original release, it is the way it portraits the fragility and weaknesses of its characters.
