I love Rei so fucking much
>>3966653I know this feel bro. Such a sweet girl. A comforting presence. A sad light amongst such sadness. Light of the world. I have almost a religious attachment to her, at this point, I think. I don't fundamentally know why I feel this way; I just do. I cannot be the only one. I know I am not.
Give it another 25 years and she'll win for sure, r-right?
>>3967377Rei won despite not ending up with Shinji. She's free of her abusers and lives a peaceful, normal life on her own terms. Be happy with what you got.
>>3967385Other guy.What we have, despite being a happy ending, is a short and bloody unsatisfactory epilogue.So, I might as well try, but the material we have doesn't make it easy at all.
>>3967385Alright, that pic made me laugh.
I just got done watching 1.0 + 1.0 + 1.0 + 1.01. I can't believe they made Rei-chan (tentative) into a dumb rice farmer2. Was long hair Rei the Rei in Eva 01 from 2.0?3. Why did they use a public domain 3D model for Rei's face?I liked the movie, especially seeing Gendo's past and reconciling himself with Shinji
Does someone have an higher quality version of this pic?>>3967907>2. Was long hair Rei the Rei in Eva 01 from 2.0?Yes>3. Why did they use a public domain 3D model for Rei's face?Uncanny valley and unsettling and scary and imaginary impact and epic EoE reference and idk
>>3968327that lipstick smudge gave me a boner
Rei is indeed best girl.
So it seems.So it seems.
>>3968951You're right. Rei is best girl, always and forevermore.>>3969305Supremely based.
Well, I've been gone for almost half a year. Just updated my mega for the first time in that same period (5,648 files now).https://mega.nz/folder/JDghmTzZ#hRIrDOfH3H0UeFXgz7hA_gImage-relevant song, because I feel like it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R8ZN5mLjh-Q
>>3969692This is literally Heaven, and you must be God.Thank you so much anon, I love you
>>3969713No prob. Just glad to contribute again.
>>3967377>she'll win for sure, r-right?She's won over my heart.
Does anyone know what happened to the Fic ‘You Can Do It, We Can Help’? It was a great source of cute Shinji and Rei moments (nearly 400k words) but it suddenly disappeared in 2018.
Why are you reposting it here?
>>3970729Fuck you for making me think this stupid ship is cute
>>3970773No. Can't embrace the crackship.
>>3970776Wish we got more out of this artist
>>3970669I believe the author deleted their AO3 account so the fic disappeared with it. With enough digging anything can be found, though.
>>3970773OK, that is funny though.
>>3970669>>3970869I found this. https://files.catbox.moe/6mt8ek.pdf
I don't know if this is the right place for me to speak my thoughts, but I feel like I need to give myself a sense of closure and a farewell to Rei Ayanami.Being a Rei Waifuist had its ups and downs for me. I originally choose her as my waifu because of how much I related to her since I was a teenage autistic weeb with a fair bit of terrible life experiences under my belt when it came to socializing with other people.Just like any honeymoon period, it was great for the first year or so. I felt motivated and had more backbone to pursue my own path in life. I started buying a dakimakura of her, plushies, stickers, etc. I even bought a light blue sweatshirt to remind me of her hair color, like the blue sky on a clear sunny day. My love for her was like a dog on a catnip-filled rush, basically.But like all things, it tends to die down, and I slowly went back to my original ways. Things change, and life is an ever-moving currentFor me, It's hard being a waifuist when you have to imagine all the conversations and sensations, it's easy to imagine how good a certain food tastes, but the taste will never be as good as actually eating it.I never really was meant for a relationship. Being alone was what I always wanted, even when I was pretty young.Being with Rei as my first and last relationship has played an important step in becoming the person I am now. She helped me gain a better understanding of myself and topics such as waifuism.I respect all Reifans and Reifags alike and wish them the best of luck in their life.I don't know what life has in store for me, but for now I'm content with the way my life is. Goodbye, Ayanami Rei.
>>3971141Impressive, very nice.>>3971964Very interesting post. Thanks you sharing, anon. I have sympathy to how you feel. While you have kept it vague, I think I am becoming a bit more social rather than comfortable with being totally alone, but Rei will also hold a special place in my heart. I empathize with her too much to leave her totally behind, though.
Is artflow allowed in /c/ ?>>3971964I hope you make it, anon
>>3971964good luck in your life my friend
Reibros, we win again.
>>3966640Just a reminder that all those years back I FUCKING TOLD YOU SO. This general did a 180 on ReiQ ever since 3+1 came out.
>>3973093Tolerating her is not a full 180 tho.
>>3973206other anon here.>Tolerating her is not a full 180 tho.True. Continuing to be convinced that she is not Rei despite having been said that she is (and this since interviews with screenwriters prior to 3.0) indeed is a self-admission of dumbtardness.
>>3973224Yeah, I'm still convinced.
>>3973224>clearly not ayanami>durrr you're ayanami imma call you thatShinji is the stupidest fucker in all of Anime, I'm glad he got groomed by a granny and fucked off. This movie made me hate this faggot so much.
>>3973321>>3973351The protagonist, the movies and even the authors: "She's Rei".The dumbtards: "she's not because the facts are irrelevant if my headcanon says otherwise."
Even before 3.0+1.0 came out, this thread had way more bickering and infighting than almost any other on /c/, but at least it was somewhat tolerable compared to the incomparable cancer of /a/ eva threads. Things have just gotten worse in the last 6 months, and I have yet to see any signs of improvement. I'm fucking off for a while. A long while. Hopefully when I come back, some of you will have removed your heads from your asses.
>>3973505She's Rei and I like her, but she's not Rei II/Rei III, the Rei I love
>>3973224Sure thing buddy.
>>3973828Not bad! I'm surprised it took so long.
>>3973527These threads consistently have the worst ratio of replies to images of any thread on this board. Anyone who bumps the thread without posting an image is a faggot who needs to go back to /a/
Rei is the quintessential great character stuck in a shit anime. You can try to convince me otherwise, but you'd be wrong.
what a qt
>>3975209putting best girl in eva always yields reiwell, I don't know if it still does now after it got pozzed
>>3975628And what is she planning to do with that gun?
>>3974064The original series is fantastic. It's the rebuilds that are overall mediocre.
>>3975662cosplay Mathilda Lando
>>3970773long hair rei cured my tom(homo)boy sexuality

Give me Rei handholding fanarts, please.
