Best girl ever.Aso looks right to me.Did you remember to update the pastebin?
>>3341067I don't have a pastebin account.The previous thread isn't archived yet, isn't it?
>>3341085One isn't necessary.
Moon = womb, we get it Anno
>>3341275why are asukafags so autistic
>>3341294Well they'd have to be, to be asukafags and all...
Tulpas are frightening anyway, no one should want what is essentially an adopted child that you share a brain with. I love Rei, but manifesting her into an incorporeal reality seems like it would be bad for both me and her.
When do we finally gun down the degenerate Asukuck?
>>3341373Pretty much. The thought of destroying your own brain is terrifying. (As if it's not already a swiss cheese due to obsessing over Rei though, feels bad man)>>3341472You keep saying that, and it is IS possible to gun down the degenerate asucuck, but it takes committment you aren't willing to put down.
>>3341055A reminder, fellow Reifriends, that the episode anno intended to establish Asuka as the primary girl is the one that firmly enshrined Rei as best
>>3341666If both characters are played straight, and with honesty, of course Rei comes off as the best.
>>3341670But the characters are not played straight, because male feminists such as Anno pander to roasties like asuka
>>3341666satan trips of truth"Look at how sexy and intelligent this annoying gaijin slut is! Ignore how Rei manages to be sexier without even trying..."
>>3341805Rei was more than ready for Shinji's affection by that point in the series. What Shinji should have done was get up, march over to Rei, and haul her up into a full mouth kiss, all while Asuka stands there watching.But Shinji is too much of a pussy to do something like that.
>>3341805>satan tripsBecause asuka is the anti-christ
>>3341836Rei doesn't want a retard kissing her, anon.
>>3341883Shinji may be a pussy but he isn't a retard, you falseflagging asukafag
>>3341897He can be both, self-insert anon
>>3341900>anyone who respects Shinji's character is an insertfagYep, you're an asukafag
>>3341902Anon, I respect him.I just always sort of saw him as a retard. I still understand his struggles.
>>3341906>I still understand his struggles.Clearly you do not, lest you would understand that his struggle is cowardice, not ignorance.
>>3341924He is much less of a coward than just a simple retard.Both of those can be attributed to him.
>>3341883>>3341928Shinji is not a retard, why do you think that?Besides, what's wrong with Shinji kissing Rei?
>>3341939>>3341939In the introspection scenes, while some of the questions he asks himself are valid there are lot of times when he asks himself basic silly questions that anybody past 11 should have been able to figure out.
>>3341944So, you affirm that Shinji is a retard just because he was not able of solve his doubts in his first "try", do not you remember in the condition in which Shinji was?
>>3341944Shinji is in no way retarded. Being blended into an Angel in a scenario which literally makes your "self" expand beyond your body is plenty of reasons to ask existential questions. Wondering what "you" are, is despite it's simplicity, one of the most difficult things to answer.Shinji isn't retarded, but I'm starting to think you are.
>>3341968Like the other anon said, you do not understand ShinjiIf you were Shinji, would you have done better?
>>3341975>>3341981>Being blended into an Angel in a scenario which literally Never said anything about an angel>Wondering what "you" are, is despite it's simplicity, one of the most difficult things to answer.That's not what i meant nor the questioning i specified.
>>3341984Just mcfucking kill yourself already.
>>3341696He's not even a male feminist, he could have made Rei pander to them as well. Ironically Rei in NGE is more feminist than any of the other characters.
>>3341997>He's not even a male feministWhat do you mean?
>>3341997>Asuka>Literally screams about rape culture and trigger warnings during the series>Rei>Demure and well mannered traditional girlBut Rei is the feminist characterWho is jewing who, here?
>>3342002read the previous post.
>>3342004what is meant by male feminist? advocates for males instead?
>>3342003There's feminism, and the third, fourth and nth wave feminism that's making the former look absolutely retarded. Rei is the former. Asuka would be the latter, i.e whining about rights you've already got because you don't have the strength to use them.>>3342007I assume he meant "feminist that is male". Even thought it's not necessary since it's a unisex word.
>>3341984You are not responding to my message, you ignore that Shinji suffered the abandonment of his father which create his cowardice and some other negative aspects in himShinji in the last episodes cant resolve his doubts immediately because he is the contrary to someone decided, it is also necessary to remember that he was "desetabilized" and was in his lowest condition>>3342003Do not associate Rei with the feminism
>>3342029On the contrary, I have responded. Everyone doubts themselves which is fine, i meant some of the questions which he asked himself.
>>3342032You call Shinji a retard.Shinji is not unintelligent. He is well aware of his feelings, both about himself and others, however he is too afraid to act on themYou are wrong
>>3342029>Do not associate Rei with the feminismWhy not? Her development is very feminist
>>3342029Rei isn't associated with feminists, asuka is
>>3342038No it isn't, rabbi
>>3342037You are making this about feelings and his external responses.
>>3342044And you don't have an argument
>>3342046Being 'aware' of feelings doesn't make you less retarded, it doesn't matter if your dad went away.
>>3342049And again you have no argument
>>3342051Not an argument
>>3342052Ah, you're a shitposting kaworufag Why am I not surprised
>>3342056>it has kaworu in image so you are le kaworufagRead the OP, bet you think Rei Q is Rei too.
>>3342021Good thing the NYT isn't an authorative source on grammar and word definitions.>>3342044>>3342049Can you stop being such an insufferable faggot? Shinji dindu NUFFINGo spam this shit on the discord so everyone can anally rape you, pussy.
>>3342065>dindu nuffin>discordyeahhh i don't use discord
>>3342038>Why not? The feminism is cancer and Rei is the contrary>Her development is very feministCan you explain that?>>3342041You understand
>>3342071You should give it a go, it's quite lively, and better for discussion.>>3342079Not that guy, but it can be explained.
>>3342079They cannot explain that. Leftists think that a woman who is intelligent and capable is a feminist, when the opposite is the reality
>>3342094No, it cannot. Asuka is the feminist because she blames all her problems on men, like Shinji, Touji, and Kaji
>>3342094I'm skeptical of discord.>Not that guy, but it can be explained.They'll never get it anon, don't bother.
>>3342098>They'll never get it anon, don't bother.We get that more women than ever before are rejecting feminism
>>3342098It's worth is just for the Reibros.
>>3342104>We get that more women than ever before are rejecting feminismGood for them>It's worth is just for the Reibros.Like I said, discord seems really sketchy to me. I had an account there like a year back which i deleted and never looked back.It's nice to talk to fellow reibros here on /c/ itself alone.
>>3342113There's Rei pics, banter and more.
>>3342116There's multiple places for that, I mostly come here for the pics. I prefer the russian eva fandom much more
>>3342113A real Rei bro knows feminism is cancer
>>3342119I'm not sure where you are going with this
>>3342118Isn't that filled with retarded Asukafags?For shame.
>>3342120>inb4 somebody accuses me of being penpenfag cause penpen is in the pic
>>3342122the discord? Not sure, but it probably is..considering the nature of discordIf you mean the Russian fandom there isn't more or less Asukafags than in general.
>>3342123No, you're just a left wing moron
>>3342127This discord, is 95% Rei territory.>If you mean the Russian fandom there isn't more or less Asukafags than in general.I saw some polls where Asukafags were on top.I'd be interested in hearing more about the ruskie fandom though.
>>3342128You are probably a silly westerner, how can you accuse me of being left wing. Keep in mind that both right wing and left wing mean way different things here than what they mean in wherever you are from.>>3342131>This discord, is 95% Rei territory.Needs to be 100%, I don't understand why you are so passionate about it yet asukafags remain.>I saw some polls where Asukafags were on top.Source?
>>3342136It's an image often reposted. Vkz something something.>Needs to be 100%, I don't understand why you are so passionate about it yet asukafags remain.Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer.
>>3342136If you call yourself a feminist, you are a moronic cuckold
>>3342139>It's an image often reposted. Vkz something something.Never seen it>Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer.Wouldn't the percentage of Asukafags be higher then? Seems like a convenient excuse.>>3342143>If you call yourself a feminist, you are a moronic cuckoldI don't, i said Rei's path throughout the story bears slight similarities to feminism.
>>3342149It's this one: https://boards.fireden.net/a/search/image/ZLcqQxu4JMENFr8e1-JE3w/It's spammed a lot by a certain asucuck.But give it a whirl, Reifags gotta stick together.
>>3342155It's like a 4% difference, only a fool would brag over that.>vkit was probably some facebook group tier quiz, don't see how that is indicative of an entire fandom meanwhile the japs have kaworu #1https://www.evastore.jp/special_evastore_13th_anniversary
tfw am a penpenfag as per earlier accusations
>>3342170The correct answer should be Rei at 50%, then Shinji, and the rest divided among the rest.
>>3342181Eh i wish it were that way too..for Rei at least. Reality is often disappointing, so i try not to care too much about popularity polls.
>all the last few images are from mesure feels lonely
>>3342188Kaworu gets the middle finger.All's right with the world.That said, if reality is disappointing, adapt and try changing it.
>>3342206Lots of better things to focus on than character popularity, all my eva friends prefer Rei and that's all what matters to me in the end.
>>3342207I guess, but having Rei fun. Maybe direct your eva friends to the Rei discord?There's a shitload of Rei here.
>>3342234I'm the only one of them, who can speak english shillanon
>>3342237Weird, I thought most Russians spoke english fairly fluently.
Rei's going to turn 18 this year.Prepare your lewd pics.
>>3342318Is there a version without the blood splatter, because that pic just screams edgelord
>>3342323I think there is another version of that image, but I do not have it.
>>3341055>>3341472>>3341666>>3342193Let's wake this thread back up, Reifriends. Post Rei dressed up at her absolute girliest. Bonus points if pic includes Shinji spazzing out
>>3342496it's not even 10pm yet in commiefornia, anon
https://www.animefeminist.com/discourse-not-doll-rei-ayanami-escapism-objectified-images-desire/Here's some recent feminist article about Rei. I didn't read all of it, seems like its main purpose is to tell that you shouldn't like Rei bacuse of her beautiful looks. They call it "fetishisation". Seems like typical nonsense about objectification and narrative about why guys shouldn't care about girl's looks.
>>3342586>linking the actual article directly which gives them ad revenue and clicks, thus encouraging them to write more.You know /pol/ might be cancer but at least they are smart when it comes to this sort of thing. next time you want to link cancer, use an archive link. https://web.archive.org/web/20180212025251/http://www.animefeminist.com:80/discourse-not-doll-rei-ayanami-escapism-objectified-images-desire/
>>3342459the thread's actually been way more active today than usual. Normally /c/ threads don't get 100+ posts in one day.
>>3342605There wasn't any asuka pictures being posted to /a/ for me to shitpost so i've been chilling here. Also I think it's mostly been one anon posting the majority of the pics.
i had a dream where Rei was in a Smash game, despite the fact that she hasn't really been in any video games besides otaku bullshit.I would like a video game with Rei as the main character.
>>3342606I've posted my fair share, and at least two others did the same.
>>3342611Same, and we would have one too if not for Anno's cuckery.
>>3342586Well you shouldn't like her just cause of her looks, but appreciating her looks is fine>>3342606It was me
>>3342586If feminists don't like Rei, then you know that Rei is best >>3342602/pol/ was right again
>>3342817Welcome to the thread, kaworufag
>>3342817Please keep that homo demon away from Rei
imagine thinking any character other than Shinji is acceptable to ship with Rei
>>3342817Why do you publish that garbage here?I still do not understand why that artist liked to pair Rei with Kaworu
>>3343048>I still do not understand why that artist liked to pair Rei with KaworuProbably because he's a false flagging asukafag
>>3342459>Post Rei dressed up at her absolute girliest.Sure thing senpai
>>3343147Or maybe he is a kaworufag
>>3343162>>3343160>>3343156Regardless of who/what it is, let's just agree that those "people" are disgusting.
>>3343168Kaworu kills kittens, not birds
>>3343162So, that ship of Rei with Kaworu, is supported only by Asukafags?>>3343173Indeed
>>3343185>So, that ship of Rei with Kaworu, is supported only by Asukafags?As cuckolds, they want strong women like Rei pushed to the outfield so that they can give Asuka fame, neetbux, and dick from their bull
>>3343156ngl I once posted an Asuka/Kaworu pic in the Asuka thread to bait, but then someone else replied with another ship pic so they might actually enjoy that shit
>something not rei or shinji is posted>shitpost squad immediately activates and bombs thread with anti-asukafag propagandaI love you guys
>>3343207And I love you, random citizen!
>>3343207DESU I don't like it. Fuck Asukafag but said shitpost squad shouldn't come here.
>>3343222Thank you (((fellow reifag)))
>>3343222>t. asukafagI don't have a problem with them at all desu, its pretty funny. Also nice trips
the image:post ratio is a bit off though
what boards do you think Rei would use
>>3343509>tfw I left a giant white bar at the bottom
>>3343528did you actually get banned for that?
>>3342586Well, that's the thing, some people ignore a lot of Rei's character to make stuff like that - that's why it's important to bring up to these people the feminist side of Rei's character.
>>3343572Feminism is cancer. Thank you very much.
>>3343532>tfw no Rei-themed black metalWaifu metal has promise
>>3343880It actually does, if done right.
I had to put my dog down today, she would've been 9 next month. If anyone here has a dog, please hug them for me.
>>3343880I might make a dmc/rei crossover OC when I'm done making some shitty edits of rei with guns for shitposting on /a/. My edit skills are pretty subpar but it might be worth using for fun posting with. Tbh I should just learn to draw one day.
>>3344058I do not have pets, but I'm sorry for you
>>3344058I’m sorry for your loss, I’m gonna do that right now
why does she like to swim so much
>>3344826Because she was created by LCL
>>3345745Is that a cigarette or a pocky stick? And why is she standing in the middle of the Mojave?
>>3345887because she's cooler than you
what did she mean by this
I hope that the other character is Shinji.
>>3346600That dress looks like a wrinkly ballsack when you look at it.
>>3347282Shinji should be as scantily dressed as Rei is
>>3347305why do you want to see that, are you a fag
>>3347306What do you mean 'fag'? Shinji is a girl
I wonder what a Rei design by Yoshitaka Amano would look like tbqh
>letting the thread drop below page 7>evershame
Nice pic, do you have the source?
Sorry, I forgot to quote your post >>3348118
>>3348323catgirl rei is always appreciated
>>3348823what's wrong with catgirl reis anon
How would you guys reply to a statement like this regarding our dislike of Rei's portrayal in 3.0?"It's almost as if you're perfectly demonstrating his point.You're projecting these intense feelings onto a fictional character, a cipher, a drawing on a page or a computer screen. You're emotionally frustrated by something that isn't real or tangible, and maybe you should examine that?Rei is almost too effectively designed to be a beige wall that Shinji, or Gendo desu, can project their own feelings and insecurities onto and deny her any agency in the process. It's too effective in that this trick works on the audience and they do the same thing...Rei is barely a real person in the context of the show and whilst it's interesting to watch Rei grapple with her own emptiness and lack of identity and personhood, it's kind of the whole point. Rei was never real, can never be real, both in the show and IRL, and the fixation people have on her is weird and unhealthy.And if he abandoned a central theme of the entire show so your ship was canon, Anno would be a crap artist."
>>3349525don't care virgin
>>3349525The central waifu character of 3.0 is Kaworu who is literally just an enigmatic, untouchable, ideal person who loves Shinji (you) beyond all reason. All of the stuff about being empty and alien that people pin to Rei is even moreso applicable to Kaworu, who is the most popular "character" in the Rebuild fandom. Yet Rei's struggle is about confronting that and overcoming that within herself to become a person who determines her own destiny, whereas Kaworu plays it all straight.
sometimes it sincerely hurts that I'll never hold Rei's pale, lithe body
our response to this analysis?We had Shinji giving up in the world to save Rei; The otaku culture giving up on their lives to live their escapism in the form of anime; Rei begs for Shinji to let her go, telling the audience that she's just a anime character, nothing worth living for, but Shinji representing the audience is unable to move on, he only wants her and nothing else. And so it happens. Shinji's life and world goes to hell, and in echange he gets to live on his escapism with his emotionless sexy waifu; Just like how the japanese rejected the message Eva was built to give.Rei was so beloved in japan for her total lack of emotion, a phallic girl (What Anno intended as a way for creeping out people who lust for anime characters, ); thats why she's the one saved; Representing every Waifu and the obsession people have for them Shinji gives up on his life and relationships with people to be with her, despite the fact that she's nothing but a doll with no personality or feelings and who will only do what you order here; What Anno made Rei become in 3.33;As the salty fans hating on the movies said, 3.33 is not eva anymore. Rei is not her anymore. that's the goddamned point;The true curse of Eva, just like how the pilots remained children and didn't change at all in 14 years, the fanbase didn't change a thing in between the 14 years gap between EoE and 3.33; And giving the fans what they wanted, giving them their dear waifu, their escapism would only bring them sadness just like how Shinji couldn't cope with the new Rei, as she's not what he wanted; Not worth everything he threw away for; Shinji's desire for being with Rei as a embodiment of escapism and only a emotionless material being only brought him sadness when he threw away his relationship with others and life for;ReiQ is a representation of the misunderstanding of Rei's character as a whole, on how the fans were turned on by a emotionless girl instead of seeing it as a flaw she had to overcome,
.>>3349525>>3349671I can't answer this unless I know the whole context to the argument, so just link the post.
>>3349525It's a classic projection and "fuck you" only worded in length.You should go over the various reasons for why he's wrong using reasons from the show, and point out that Anno is every bit that "crap artist" and more, given how he's commercialized, waifuized and promoted actual shallow characters like Kaworu, and made the rest of the characters into waifus.His entire statement is based on a lie.>>3349671Same as above. It's all based on a lie. Rei Q is that, and she ranks absolutely last out of all Evangelion charactes. If there's some sort of report system, I'd actually advise you to report that user to moderators and have him/her publicly flogged.
REMINDER:The discord is ideal for this kind of discussion, and it is linked at the top of the thread. Rather than making huge walls of text here.
>>3349671>>3349525How come you do this every so often? What's your reply to their analysis?
>>3349773Such is the nature of the Asukuck>>3349778He's an Asukafag redditor that just likes to copypaste Asukafag arguments like it's some "gotcha" moment.
>>3349786I figured. Are you on the discord? Then get on there.
>>3349778>>3349786What I don't understand is why asukafags even come to the Rei thread. They get immediately rekt and humiliated and run back to /a/ where they can cry to the janitors to bail them out
>>3349786>>3349788>>3349792Reifags are just as much to blame for not doing enough to protect Rei.
>>3349801>not doing enough about Rei See >>3343207
>>3349809>>3349808Not enough.Like I said, it's not enough. Set your aims higher. Dare to do something.
>>3349808>>3349809desu, you could join the discord and get together with fellow reifags.

>>3348943Rei's better off without cat features
>>3349728>The discord is ideal for this kind of discussion, and it is linked at the top of the thread. Rather than making huge walls of text here.Remember when you guys said Discord wouldn't reduce content in the thread?
>>3349849Discord shillers are retarded, what else is new.
>>3349849>>3349855It didn't.Not only is the thread still alive, there's a large thriving discord for Rei now.You'd be a fool not to join.
>>3349882>It didn't.For some reason, actual discussion is not encouraged here but in the discord server.>there's a large thriving discord for Rei now.There always was, some anons created a new one. Nothing different other than being more rei-centric.>You'd be a fool not to join.What's foolish is using discord
>>3349888Gotta say I disagree
