This is a pretty accurate post. I don't know how OP could call Rei satisfied. She is completely desolate. I don't say this critically; the fact is she is emotionally desolate because of her circumstances. She isn't satisfied until she lets Shinji choose the world's fate.

She has the personal agency to seek that, same as Shinji when he attempts to run away etc, which Rei does not, they're all used as tools the distinction with Asuka is she wants to be a useful tool

James Lopez

If you would describe Asuka has having personal agency, it would follow that Rei does as well, as she actively tries to maintain her self-professed bond with humanity by protecting them; that is what she wants to find fulfilling.
But I'm only lukewarm toward Rei, so I'm not going to keep pleading her case. I just don't understand why it's so difficult to digest the point of her character.
Remember, almost every girl in Eva is shit, but I don't find any of them uninteresting.

The complexity of Rei is that she is a creature who is told over and over again to be simple, but she still chooses, in the end, to reach for her own personal complexity and dimension. When she tells Gendo "I am not a doll", she's breaking free of the imposed limitations on her character and ability to grow by making the only choice that she views is within her control (arguably, actually the only one she controls) and exercising free will. She demonstrates the ability to overcome her circumstance and the capacity for change and personal growth (for herself, not for outside validation), which is more than Asuka ever did.

Rei is not Lilith. This is important. She might have been born out of Lillith, but she created herself from the interaction with others and her own self definition as Rei Ayanami. YOU learn2eva.

Zachary Williams

Rei's entire character arc is about coming to terms with herself, realizing her inner self, and sticking it to the asshole who put her down.
Yes, what makes her her is her experiences as Rei. But Lilith is also her, that's why she becomes one with Lilith in EoE and embraces that side of her that frightened her earlier in the series.
The soul defines you in Eva not the vessel, like with Yui/Unit01, Everyone in Instrumentality, and like with Rei and Kaworu.

Camden Brown

Pretty much. Rei is barely aware of this dark aspect inside her and communicates with it briefly throughout the events of the show and fully embraces it when she is reabsorbed back into Lilith's body to cause 3rd impact. That is the reunification ceremony that Gendo wants but didn't expect Rei to choose Shinji instead of him.

Colton Wood
Colton Wood

Rei who is explicitly not conscious of it

I disagree on one point, I think she's very aware of that part of her she fears it because she doesn't understand its nature, but she's aware it exists, that's why it engages with it from time to time though prefers to mostly keep it buried.

Dominic Stewart

Well I think if OP can blatantly lie about Rei's character, then mine is more correct, even if it's generalizing.

Charles Flores
Charles Flores

Rei's soul is Lilith's but Rei-hood goes beyond that, Rei is distinct from Lillith the same way all humanity is distinct from Lillith. Their souls come from Lillith too. But they're not Lillith, because each fragmented soul self realizes itself as it's own individual. Rei is no different. Again, she said it herself best: She is formed by her interaction with others and her own self realization as Rei Ayanami. She's neither a bodily vessel alone nor an entity lurking within it. She's the bonds that bind both together.

I've said this before but It's one of the things that make her so fascinating. Rei's identity can't be understood from a Materialist nor an Idealist perspective. but by and ambivalent middle point. from a Materialist perspective, there's no such thing as Rei Ayanami, there's a bunch of Rei Ayanamis. but from the Idealist perspective there's no Rei Ayanami either. theres as put it a Lillith with amnesia where Lillith is the trascendental soul that hops from body to body and Rei Ayanami is nothing but a name.

But Rei Ayanami exists because Rei is the body and the soul and the bonds that bind all together. And as I said at the begining it applies to humanity too. We are not our bodies, and we're not our so called souls. we are ourselves because we are our selves.

so the functional structure of rei's soul is a metaphor for the larger existentialist themes of eva?

that would make enough sense I guess. I never took that as concrete plot exposition

I always interpreted those bits as purely thematic mirroring to shinji and asuka's plight, except that where shinji was a NEET and asuka was a projection of schoolgirl/anime culture, rei was some kind of haunting emptiness that was meant to freak people out by beckoning to the depths of their confusion

anno said rei was supposed to be creepy and frightening. but hten neets at comiket started masturbating to her, so uh..

think about this. why would Shinji and Asuka be explorations of personal things of hime and Reis suddenly be about just some sci-fi thing? He said it himself, Rei revealed something about the deepest part of him... And I think he hates he did that.

asuka's a pretty normal girl. people make her out to be some sort of super-bitch, but if shinji had just hurried up and dicked her things would have been fine

asuka's probably one of the only normal characters in eva. how is someone with actual emotions supposed to relate to a world filled with clones inserted with monster-souls, NEETs, and chronic alcoholics?

she fucking rants about this at one point. I'd lose my shit too

Nathan Jenkins
Nathan Jenkins

maybe I don't remember the whole interview, what did it reveal about anno himself?

I always assumed that while shinji and asuka represent more surface level aspects of human cognition and personality, rei was representing something less sci-fi, but the side of the human soul we don't understand, the empty part that wants to murder/kill, which can fuck without emotion, which interacts with people but never learns compassion (although I guess she eventually comes close?) but that realization we're all just fucking animals and maybe we'll always be alone, despite being defined by other people.

that's how I thought of it. I thought rei was some universal primal aspects of us, and that's what lilliths suol was supposed to be, moreso than "rei is human too."

ffs, fine, he was a basement dweller. recluse. neet is just a funny word for it, fuck

Josiah Myers
Josiah Myers

Shinji didn't dick her because he was scared of her, precisely because she was a super-bitch. She was legitimately cruel to him on more than one occasion.
Also I wouldn't call her normal. She's deeply traumatized, and is reliant on praise and attention in a very specific way, to the point that she becomes suicidal when she is forced to confront her inferiority.

Chase Martinez

neet is just a funny word for it, fuck

Shinji isn't a basement dweller, either. He pretty much runs his household.

Evan Ross
Evan Ross

people hurt each other, they always will. living is learning to deal with that. when shinji surrounded himself with corpses and fantasies, he wasn't alive.

asuka was trying to open him up in her own twisted way.

normal is probably a stretch. most normal in the show of the main cast, though.

she's crushed under the weight of salaryman/school expectations, it's natural she would seek out praise. she's strong in that respect, that she can do well and succeed.

she's easily the most relatable of the main 5 or 6 chars.

anyway, normal girls are bitches, if you didn't notice

I think Shinji is the most normal and the most relatable. He's a kid with depression and social anxiety. He doesn't go off the rails until late in the series, while Asuka is cruel pretty much from the get go. I understand why she is the way she is, but it can't excuse her poor behavior.
She didn't do well and succeed, by the way. She underperformed so many times that she was almost removed from her position, because she refused to cooperate with her coworkers.

Levi Davis
Levi Davis

always assumed that while shinji and asuka represent more surface level aspects of human cognition and personality, rei was representing something less sci-fi, but the side of the human soul we don't understand

That's my take. Shinji represents Anno's shyness and awkwardness (not so much Neetdom because shinji is actually quite industrious) While Asuka represents his attraction to women and the whole otaku pin-uppy culture (she is the one being kissed, masturbated over, portrayed as an idol, at some point her image is literally monetized within the show. Those things might be personal but by comparison are more surface level. Rei is the deeper part, which ironically is the more universal part. The thing that goes deeper than personality traits and fetishes. The unsettling part of our natures but also the most fragile and the most essential. like you say the most primal.

Josiah Campbell
Josiah Campbell

At the absolute least he always met the absolute basic expectations of society and if not for Eva would be swept into a job he didn't care about, surrounded by people he didn't know, married to the first woman to exercise any sort of claim on him like 99% of the quasi-adults of the world.

Lucas Robinson

not trying to argue, that just doesn't strike me as particularly normal

Cooper Sanders
Cooper Sanders

he's saying shinji wasn't a NEET but without eva was well on his way to have life just happen to him like a proper salary man which is not much better. The Manga version of the opening makes it more blatant. Remember, Anno's crisis came not from being a feeling like a neet but from feeling aimlessly overworked.

Eli Allen
Eli Allen

I see. I guess Shinji is much easier to understand if you have depression and anxiety.
That said, I know Asuka is very real, as a character. I admit this is part of why I hate her; I've known more than one person pretty much exactly like her, and they were terrible people.

Jose Sanders
Jose Sanders

"most relatable character" is up to viewer identification, which is why the three children create a trichotomy. if you're a loser who struggles with getting close to anyone and feel like everybody's a phony, you're hauld- i mean shinji. if you always feel like you're never good enough for your peers and superiors and make your self-worth inextricable from your success, you're asuka. if you're always had issues self-identifying and lose yourself in the expectations placed upon you and other peoples' determinations, you're rei.

Joseph Hernandez
Joseph Hernandez

asuka is pretty tame compared to real people, imo

she doesn't gossip. she doesn't lie. she doesn't stab anyone, or ruin people to gain status.

she just wants to be loved, but her problem is that she thinks she can 'win' love by being the best, which is why failure devastates her.

she kind of comes close to getting shinji to just make a tiny effort of his own to show affection towards her, but he's so scared, and it reinforces asuka's fear that unless she's the best, she's unworthy of love

I think they're the two sides of salaryman/schoolgirl/boy culture that really ramps up the standards to a ridiculous level

I mean, think about it for a second. Some people kill each other, or think that killing "isn't that bad." or they deal drugs. asuka is just a confused girl. she's good.

eva really narrows down the problem to a micro level. when someone is as weak as shinji, even tiny little things are magnified to the point where the other person can seem evil. I think that really micro focus on shinji and asuka is why they get shipped so hard, because the sorts of communication breakdowns they have occur with couples.

if my 'other' or whatever couldn't even lift a finger to show they cared, I'd probably react like asuka

Owen Watson

shinji was equally cruel in just as many ways. he acted weak so that others couldn't feel angry at him when he legitimately commited offenses against them.

don't forget that gendo is basically shinji+25 years, and he's easily the cruelest person on the series. shinji wasn't innocent

I recall, vaguely, anno saying something to the effect that he made asuka the way he did because he wanted to wake up otaku to what a woman is really like, and in that goal, he made her deliberately unpleasant, but still with a decent heart

instead they just ended up fetishizng the surface behavior.

Juan Thomas

Almost every person in Eva is a bad person, yes.

Carter Jenkins
Carter Jenkins

How could anyone prefer a character that isn't Rei?
because humans are inherently emotional creatures. logic does not come naturally for most.

many men and women would rather be abused by someone like asuka than be bored by rei. similarly, many people marry those who're always hungry for new and exciting things, but are somehow surprised when they themselves are abandoned or cheated on once the novelty wears off.

Carson Baker

She used him, but I think she did love him too, one doesn't preclude the other, 'Love is destructive' and all that... She could have just as easily used Fuyutsuki alone. Look at it from her perspective, she already had a field leading scientist wrap around her finger. And she was genious scientist and the daughter of the most senior member of the Illuminati we ever get to hear about. Gendo was a too-old-for-college fuck up. whose family name wasn't even worth preserving. What did he have to offer in her plans? I think she honestly fell for him. It's the only way it makes sense. thing is he loved him more than he needed him while it was the other way around for him.

90% of evangelion revolves around sexual undertones, I don't think you can honestly take that statement at face value. it's probably to encourage more otaku to buy official (tm) rei textured tenga at the famima

90% of the anime, maybe. The manga is much more sterile in comparison, at least where Shinji is concerned. It's not a waifu thing but a "Shinji's sexuality" thing. Sadamoto is pretty frank about it. Anime Shinji is bisexual, but manga Shinji is probably flat out gay.

In fact, Shinji and Rei, and Shinji and Asuka, their touch stopped at holding hands. Everytime they hold their hands, it has a different meaning. It is one fun fact about EVA… I never intend to let the children’s relationship go beyond that [holding hands]. On the contrary, Kaworu is the only one who overstepped the boundary, he broke the rule.
You might as well call Sadamoto a fudan.

Because asuka would be more fun to dominate
Imagine fucking that smug off her face.
Misato, from the perspective of a heterosexual 14 year old boy would be an easy outlet for lust and something to brag about, having sexed a grown, shapely woman.
Rei is certainly quiet and well behaved and quiet
Imagine making quiet, passionate love to her only to turn on the light and realise she's been asleep this whole time and you didn't know the difference.

Kaworu is the dream, the fantasy, he is too perfect for this world and therefore needs to die.

Asuka is cute.

Exercising free will is quite the basic human trait, it's just that she was never given the choice before Shinji gave it to her. Too bad she had to kinda die right after realizing she can indeed decide for herself.

Offers sex to a 14-year-old boy
Its kinda stupid for a woman to offer sex to a guy she knows is homosexual.

I'm guessing there's some sob story behind her characters actions but it is not really explored in the series so she just appears to be a crazy bitch.
