Would Rei I have bullied Shinji?
>>
>>3370793
She might have playfully bullied 4yo Shinji, but nothing meaning to hurt him. Rei I is still Rei.
>>
>>3370799
Did she copy Gendo or there a remnant of yui in her that made her dislike Dr. Akagi?
>>
>>3370800
Probably more of the former, with a bit of her own will. We don't really know much about Rei I, how she thought, and how much it differed from Rei II and III.
>>
>>3370802
I can't imagine gendo had anything positive to say about toddler Shinji and at best he would have said nothing at all.

Unless Anno/Sadamoto suddenly decide to flesh out childhoods of Rei and Shinji we can't really be certain on how they would have interacted with each other at that age. We DO know that they were very close and friendly toward each other as teenagers, so we can only assume that would have been reflected in hypothetical interactions at earlier ages.
>>
>>3370793
>>3370811
Shinji almost certainly knew Rei before the show begins.
The first time the name "Ayanami" is spoken is when Shinji's in the bath in episode 2. But everyone else- Gendou, Misato, Ritsuko- has hitherto only called her Rei. So he must have prior knowledge of her.
Cf. in episode 20 when Shinji seems to have a young Rei in his memory, and he accuses Gendou of abandoning him since he had Rei.
Shinji regularly met Gendou until three years prior to the show began, presumably he would have had some meeting with Rei on some of these occasions also.

Note also that Shinji has, apparently, seen the members of the Human Instrumentality Committee- probably in some sort of hearing shortly after Yui's evangelization (we see this in episode 12, right before the operation against Sahaquiel begins).
>>
>>3370901
Moreover, just the way he talks about her in the bath- "bad memories... like my father... and Ayanami Rei"- makes it seem pretty likely that he already knows her. It doesn't make much sense for the "bad memory" to be something from the previous day.

Those aren't a lot to go off of and can still be interpreted in multiple ways.
Either way the scene in Rei's apartment is supposed to be the first time they have talked to each other.

That's exactly my point. Unless he means the moment where he saw her and he decided to pilot the Eva, he must mean a time when he saw her before, a time when he associated her with his father abandoning him.
>>
>>3371525
you could make the assumption that there was a point where gendo started caring for ayanami and gave shinji away or something along those lines.
>>
>>3371527
Yes. And it's likely that Shinji met Rei at the times that he and his father did meet (to visit Yui's grave).
>>
>>3371533
true but I don't think you could say they were well acquainted, they were probably just vaguely familiar with each other and shinji most likely associates ayanami with gendo abandoning him.

I gotta say, I feel really sad that Rei is only ranked the third most popular character by the Japanese fandom with 252 votes compared to Asuka's 2187 votes. :(
>>
>>3371708
Notice how that image uses Rei from 2.22, which is now 10 years old. It has been 5 years since 3.0 was released. 3.0 existed only to pander to kaworufags asukafags. Part of the reason that it has taken so long for 4.0 to be made is because 3.0 had no purpose beyond denigrating Rei, therefore it left the studio trapped in a creative box, because 3.0 went so far into disaster and depression in order to punish Shinji for choosing Rei over asuka. It has come back to bite them because now they don't know what to do with the franchise

Pandering to asukafags killed this series

Yeah, I'll get on that. I skimmed through it and assumed I had everything.

That's because when the initial upload was deleted from Pixiv, the artist re-uploaded it with a bunch of other pictures.
https://www.pixiv.net/member_illust.php?mode=medium&illust_id=68886703
It pissed me off for obvious reasons, so I didn't want it anymore. I'll admit, I was being kinda petty.

He doesn't, and that's the problem. Rei's issues are not at all destructive, and are easily solved by simple affection, which Shinji was too cowardly to give.

Shinji has a plethora of issues and narrowing it all down to cowardice shows a rather naïve interpretation of his character. His fear, like all of his flaws, is a symptom of much deeper rooted issues. We're talking about a kid (a 14 year old kid, people seem to forget that) with abandonment issues, extremely low self-esteem and the fate of the world on his shoulders. It's easy to say that Shinji could solve Rei's problems by showing her some affection when you have foreknowledge on Rei's inner thoughts and character development, but Shinji doesn't have that luxury. He doesn't know the things we know about her, yet still makes attempts to get closer to her despite his apparent cowardice. It's strange that instead of trying to understand these issues like Rei does, you choose to be shortsighted and overly critical. Kind of reminds me of another character in the series.

>We're talking about a kid (a 14 year old kid, people seem to forget that) with abandonment issues, extremely low self-esteem
Translation: First world problems

>the weight of the world
Doesn't actually weigh anything at all.

>Shinji doesn't understand Rei
She is not difficult to understand. The fact that she does not wear her double standards and false intentions on her shoulders like Asuka does does not make Rei a difficult character to understand. The fact that Shinji does not understand her is his failing, and his alone.

>yet still makes attempts to get closer to her
When Shahaquiel attacks, and Asuka is antagonizing Shinji and Rei together, he does almost nothing to defend himself, or her. When Matarael attacks and Asuka nearly ruins the defense effort, Shinji does nothing and leaves Rei alone to fix the situation. After he survives Iruel, Shinji had the perfect opportunity to literally sweep her off her feet. What does he do? He just lies in bed and gawks at her while she walks away. Again.

You confuse understanding his issues with sympathizing with them. I understand his issues perfectly, friend. His behavior weighed against his issues does not warrant sympathy.

Shinji most likely witnessed his mother being off'd in the incident so there's that

>>3377697
Shinji's mother issues are nowhere near as debilitating as asuka's were

>>
>>3378765
loving anyone vicariously is pretty gay
>>
>>3378767
IRL that would be so but we are dealing with fictional characters
>>
>>3378762
Rei loves Shinji. She says out loud that she loves Shinji.
'Shipping' is when followers of a series pair up characters that are not involved. Rei makes her desires plainly clear.
Supporting her is not 'shipping'

you don't need to live vicariously through a fictional character to love a fictional character

I think "solving each others problems" is pretty ideal. If we look at NGE, Rei and Shinji definitely helped each other.

Shinji does give Rei some affection, which makes her reconsider what a good relationship should be like.
Rei on her hand gives Shinji someone to admire and long for, and gives him sound advice he then follows.

This culminates in EoE, and it's precisely because Shinji and Rei found each other and connected they were able to connect in EoE too. When Shinji is committing global suicide, Rei is there to pull him out of it. Would not have happened if the two did not connect.

>>3377758
>Shinji's mother issues are nowhere near as debilitating as asuka's were

That's because Asuka is weaker than Shinji.

>That's because Asuka is weaker than Shinji.
he was like 'wow cool robot' then his mum died, asuka had months or so of kyoko not recognising her and talking to a doll and commiting suicide with the doll. they have rather different sorts of mother issues: for shinji, the person that loved him in the world is gone and he's sent away with no explanation. for asuka her entire identity is self-compoudningly confused on how to deal with this. asuka's more self-destructive than escapist compared to shinji, not flatly weaker.
>>
>>3378959
She's flatly weaker. You forgot how Shinji was then unceremoniously abandoned by his father and forgotten since, while Asuka lives the good family life while being supported by everyone.
>>
>>3378960
shinji might've been abandoned by his father but he did live with someone and he lived an okay life, maybe emotionally neglected but he learned cello. asuka's "good family life"?
>her father doesnt give a fuck, kinda like gendo but for opposite reasons. cant remember exactly, its different in manga vs anime. the only person that she can count on as caring about her kaji but he's got other stuff on the side with his job and his charming attitude leaves her confusedly thinking of him as a lover
>going to uni at like 11 =/= being supported. she was supported to be the best, building up her pressure and an identity based on what she can do. she ends up burnt out and after losing her ability to pilot has nothing for her empty and similarly-neglected personality.
>>
>>3378961
Father did give a fuck. She has no quarrely about her father.
She's on good terms with her new mother and even has regular chats with her on the phone.

>going to uni at 11

>shinji had a good life

I'm not saying Asuka isn't a puppet doll for NERV. I'm saying that she got a better deal than both Rei and Shinji.
>>
>>3378944
Shinji you idiot
>>
>>3378959
Asuka's identity is not 'confused'. it was deliberately manufactured by NERV to make her obedient

>she got a better deal than both Rei and Shinji.
