ὀχύρωμα ὁσίου φόβος Κῡρίᾱς, συντριβὴ δὲ τοῖς ἐργαζομένοις κακά.Blissome summertide.Give due credit to those who create Rei's images: indicate author and/or source if known. Discussion always welcome, but offer an image.>Previous thread:>>4088012>General archive:https://pastebin.com/nzPXrU5D
I just realized that even though the series is set during an eternal summer, I don't have all that much art explicitly summer-themed or even connoting a feeling of summer.
Come to think of it, I have more related to winter.
I'm wondering whether Lilith should get her own threads.
>>4101994Lilith is rei
>>4101294I'm confused... Doesn't the original artwork point the other way?
Lord Christ Son of God have mercy upon me a sinner

>>4102621Quomodo turbaris, mi in fide frater?
>>4104482Do not worry about me, but rather yourself, for Roman Catholicism is a heresy
>>4104536I am not Catholic. Latin doesn't belong to the church. Based on your use of the prayer, I assume you are Orthodox? I respect a lot of Orthodox practices and imagery.
>>4102184That's the only version of the image I have. Do you have the alternative? I think I got that version off of rei-ayanami.com (which needs to be taken over and purged) or one of the older threads.
>>4099994>Is there a transcript of all Ayanami lines from the series or EoE? If not, I suggest we make oneIn the next few days, I will check to see if someone made one in the past. Unfortunately I don't know Japanese, so I don't think I would personally be useful in putting together a list, since all I would do is use the subtitles and dubbed audio from the versions of the series and films I have.
>>4100301>An analogue to the Gresham–Copernicus law was postulated by Gregory Bateson concerning the operating in cultural evolution, in which "the oversimplified ideas will always displace the sophisticated; and the vulgar and hateful will always displace the beautiful. And yet the beautiful persists."You seem to be a virtuous person. I respect you and hope that is rewarded. I had not heard of Bateson, but he sounds very interesting, and I'll note to look into him. Also, that image you shared is awe inspiring and one of the most beautiful representations of the Third Impact I have yet come across.
>>4104618Ce je пpaвдa, тaкoжe хвaлa тoбє. Let me also make a guess. Baptist?>>4104620I looked it up, and what got into my mind and confused me is this edit (picrel). The original is that which you posted, truly. Also stop browsing rei-ayanami.com>>4104631If the original Japanese text is available to you it would be better than nothing. I can do the same for English and Russian subs/dubs (and will do if you will). I also have a friend who knows Japanese well, I will ask him if he would be interested in helping out
Rei threads still classy as ever. Keep it up.
I have finally started processing my backlog of images. This is exhausting work. Rei give me strength.
>>4104639It is true; I think that's what you're asking. I have learned a lot about Orthodoxy from Byzantine studies. I'm not of any specific denomination.Nice picture. I think I have seen that before but hadn't saved it. I only browsed rei-ayanami.com once, right after I discovered it effectively frozen in time and wanted to save the images that I thought deserved preservation in case the site went offline, as so many have. Some things I was exposed to were shameful and wrong, but I have never returned to them after saving what was relevant and have tried to exorcise them from my mind as much as I can. I hope that is enough to atone.I have the original subtitles in the form of transcripts. I have no Japanese experience but could look into it. I will also try to find any prior such list of Rei's lines to avoid double work, as I said. I'll update here in a few days. I didn't know there were Russian subs or dubs. I'm guessing they're fanmade? I'd be interested to watch it if you could share it.
>>4104715Good morning. Was it you behind all three posts? That's a bit awkward, but anyway>I'll update here in a few daysI will be waiting>I'm guessing they're fanmade? I'd be interested to watch it if you could share it.There is only one Russian dub of the original series as far as I know, unlike EoE. It was done by a professional studio MC Entertainment in the late 90's - early 00's. It'a very nice, I love Ayanami's voice in particular as it's extremely authentic and is what I associated with her all the way. You can watch it here https://animego.org/anime/evangelion-863
I want to crush the skulls of those who would hurt Rei or enjoy seeing her hurt. I know rage is to be avoided, but it is so painful seeing her suffer in any way. I can't properly describe it. It is like my soul is lit afire and I don't know how to make it go away except by brutalizing my body through exercise. I think it is some kind of triggered caveman instinct.
Forgive the improper romanization.

Rei? Ray???! あなたはニュータイプのシンジです !
>>4104770All right, so I've looked through the old threads and haven't yet found any kind of transcript of all of her lines. There are links to the old (and unfortunately deleted) video and screenshot compilations of her appearances, but those are obviously no longer useful. I think this would be nice to work on. It'd be good if someone experienced with Japanese could help out, so reach out to your friend when you get the chance. I'm leaving today for about a week but can start looking into working on compiling her lines later in the month.
page 9 so i made my own art

first time visiting this thread , I'm from /m/.been reading the previous threads so I gotta tell you this guys. some anons were discussing how a relationship between rei and shinji could have worked..well you guys don't need to think much about it.Anima did all the work, basically Rei had character development that does not depend entirely on shinji , and shinji is not a fucking retard but a little more well adjusted human being (not by much) they have feeling for each other and even promise to live together after all the shitshow in the novels. hope you well bros..not a fan of shipping but i thought this would be good for those interested.
>>4112905You need not necessarily involve shipping, this thread is merely for the celebration of Rei.
>>4112915I know. just posting the info 'cause previous threads were talking about it , sorry bro.
LAETE est mihi nuntiatu vobis omnibus, amicis meis caris, AMOREM vicisse LIBIDINEM.
>>4112905I will read Anima soon. It will be interesting to see. I am of the belief that it is impossible due to the unique nature of Evangelion, but I may be happy to be proven wrong in the case of at least one timeline, depending upon how it is handled.
>>4112928it's not the best but could be worse so I don't know how to feel about the writing on anima. P.S. Trois = Rei IIIQuattre= another Rei clone.
I don't know whether .gifs are allowed on here, but I just wanted to relate the indescribable joy I am experiencing from finding out about the IA project GifCities and the revival of GeoCities, NeoCities. For someone who didn't witness the early mass Internet, this feels like stumbling upon a home I never had. I could spend eternity in there.Blog over. Happy 25th Anniversary to The End of Evangelion, as well. I had wished I would be in a better place than I am by this day, but I will drive on.
Rei please guide my sleep and life
I am sorry some of these have loss artefacts on them, they are not original images...
Bonam noctem tibi
I will not proceed to think of Rei as I drift off into a deep slumber
>>4114305I didn't know there were two here tonight. You are welcome but unexpected
>>4114334I don't come here too often
Stay hydrated, my friends — Rei's light is particularly bright out there today.
>>4107539Alright it's been 2 weeks now and I think it's time to check in. Sadly I couldn't reach my friend as of yet, but little by little, I started working on this little project of ours. I can write all of her quotes in Russian and Interslavic, which I also know, and additionally in English, though it would take more time. I also can compile screencaps with her appearance in maximum definition of something like 2000x1000+I suggest we split the work this way: You do English and Japanese to the extent of your ability and material availability, I do the restMy E-Mail if closer communication will be email@example.com
>>4114515This is a pretty one. I occasionally use 00 as my nickname in different places. I like to imagine it being used in military context. Truly a sign only comparable to SS insignias
I am a sinful man, Rei, and I am sorry.
Here is one of my favourites. Unfortunately it has the Rebuild red core, but that is a minor issue.
>>4112905Shipping sucks, and ANIMA is fundamentally anti-rei as it commits the common post-EoE spinoff sin that is separating Rei into several characters.Not only that, the development is also constraining and doesn't at all work with the established NGE/EoE Rei development.
also where is my Rei fundamentalist bros at?
>>4115778I'm with the church of latter day reis
>>4115778I am a Reivangelical, through and through, as it was first called in the threads of yore. And I am deadly serious.
>>4115776I'll need to read it. I am concerned about what you say regarding "separating" Rei into several "characters," since people often forget that souls are fundamentally existent and tangible in Evangelion, meaning there can only be one Rei at any one time, and in some way there is only one Rei, even though, of course, soul division exists, if you accept the theory that EVA-00's host soul is Rei I....I need a sounder grasp of the theology.
What are you doing to "take care of yourself" in honour of her and for your own sake in this world?
>>4115944Keep my appartment clean.Keep myself clean and healty.Keep her figurine pristine
>>4114561Good to hear from you and sorry for my delay. I agree with your suggestion to divide the work. I can start working on it this week, though - fortunately and unfortunately - I am starting a new position that will take up more than half my week regularly by itself, so I will need to work on this piecemeal. I am thinking I can put time into it on Wednesdays and possibly Thursdays. I'll check in either this week or next. We should also probably make some sort of depository for the final set of transcripts, but that can be figured out later. Let me know if you prefer e-mail; if so I can continue that way, though I'm obviously still going to be in these threads.Interesting about the Interslavic. Is there already a transcript for Evangelion in that language or are you translating it yourself? I have considered doing one in Latin one day, when I am skilled enough.
>>4115944Trying to not die before the time>>4116601>Let me know if you prefer e-mail; if so I can continue that way, though I'm obviously still going to be in these threads.Anything goes, though I have access to e-mail not as often right now, so better write here when needed. I'm here for a long time>Is there already a transcript for Evangelion in that language or are you translating it yourself?Not yet, but I became fluent in it not that long ago, so I will take the honor of translating it.Remember not to hurry, my friend
I need this thread's counsel.There is a particular doujinshi I have encountered that I was not distressed while reading. It is 96965. I do not suggest you seek it out, but if you know it, please continue. It is the only work of its kind I have ever gotten through. I have long wondered how Rei would actually have any relationship, sexual or otherwise, relative to her actual person - i.e., not as some moe object, but as her, and as her alone. Her characterization seemed so close to her personality displayed in the series, though I wish more context had been established as to how a relationship developed. But the reason why I ask the thread for advice is this: before, I swore off all such media as disgraceful, to be suppressed as disrespectful to her. But this particular work seemed somehow beautiful, seeing Rei, whom I love, loved by and loving the person she apparently actually loves. Even if, like all in its category, the work was meant to be arousing, it wasn't to me, and I did nothing during or after it except read it, my face tilted in confused inquiry and sometimes resting on one hand here on my desk. I was more focused on her face than anything else.I am very confused with what has happened; it occurred tonight, and I am still processing this. I do not like anything that characterizes her as submissive, and this seems to submit her to Shinji sexually, so I am experiencing immense cognitive dissonance. Maybe my whole view of sexuality is warped and wrong. Please advise, and, if necessary, criticize - I do not care what lacerations I open myself up to by posting this here; I need it if I deserve it. Have I betrayed her? Is this wrong? Or is this one particular work an exception? Do I need to reexamine who I am?Writing this, I now think that the work is wrong, and that I am wrong for having read it and enjoyed it. Maybe I am distressed. Maybe I was lying to myself that it was not pleasurable, even if I did not act on that pleasure. I need to lie down.
She is perfect has anyone come close to perfection?
>>4117239What matters the most is that you have morals. You have principles, and when you do something outside of them, you analyze your behavior closely, so much so you are ready to deny yourself in order to stay true to what you value. It's something I can only praise. Few people are like thisYou are a human and you have feelings that you can't and frankly shouldn't ignore. However, you should not let feelings alone guide you either. You love someone, so do we all. A man always has to love someone or something, otherwise he cannot exist. And true love surely makes you one hell of a fanatic. Eventually you start daydreaming, coming up with rituals or traditions of sort to make it a fundamental part of your life even more. Or if that's a person, it could go as far as non-stop stalking marathons. But you have to ask yourself, where is my border? At what point does my love become warped and wrong? We all are prone to make mistakes, to overthink, to overdo. Many people lack the definition of such a border, they lack order in their life, and they regret many things later on, though at first they thought they were doing things that could bring them pleasure and happinessOne thing you can't do is to betray someone accidentally. Because if you actually did, you wouldn't have to ask yourself if you have. The way you write it, I would say that it is normal to feel the way you do given the context, even though I don't think I would share this feeling. But as a human, you could at any moment fall from where you stand right now, because it's a slippery spot. I don't think you you should despise yourself for merely this, but I suggest you distant yourself from such things in the future and enjoy that which you already havePhilippians 4:8-9
>>4117260No. No one ever has and no one ever will. She is incomparable and unequatable. If nothing else, be thankful that, despite all this time's problems, you were born in such a time as to be able to know of her.
>>4117260Basically this >>4117403
>>4117283Thank you. I appreciate dearly what you have written and will remember it into the future. You are right about the extent love and devotion can go, and our difficulties in defining what that extent should be. Rei is indeed a "fundamental part of [my] life," and because of this, I have to consider how that should be expressed by me. Rei already makes me happy because of her nature and character, but her nature and character are not there simply to make me happy. I cannot forget what I have seen, but I can strive to overpower it through living a life that honours her. I suppose such a life requires regular (re)examination of my behaviour, without overthought about such behaviour. It will be a careful balance. This is the price of faith to the good, and I am willing to pay it in her memory. I will hold myself to this.Based on what you wrote about not feeling the same way I did, it seems you are basally stronger than me, and I respect your spirit. I will not lay myself to the level so many others have fallen to or provide the means for that descent. I will not allow this to happen. I cannot prove this to you, myself, or anyone else, but if there is a time after this time, I hope to be able to say, "I honoured my word and, in doing so, her."
Is this from SIRP? And does that series really get that bad? I've only read the first couple of volumes. Rei's not Rei there, but is cute.
Do you have any good Rei-centric fan works (doujinshi, text, etc.) to recommend? Ideally those set within the actual series.
