I don’t often talk about it, but Evangelion is one of my all time favorites and Rebuild 3.0 has left me with all these emotions that need an outlet.

Reblog if you have mourned the death of a fictional character.
The translation is from someone on 4chan. I just typesetted it. I probably could have wasted more time trying to make the pages look better, but I am lazy. ENJOY.
Credit goes to caicchi for scanning this in the first place!
Thanks a lot for typesetting and the link! I just bought that doujin but have no clue about the content ;A;!
Friendly reminder that in the manga, Kaworu’s love for Shinji was technically forced on him since the Eva Kaworu was in was synched up to Rei’s Eva, and when she died all her emotions for Shinji transferred to him (◕‿◕✿)
I feel like “transferred” and “forced on” aren’t really the right words. Personally, I’ve always interpreted that entire scene as more of a realisation for Kaworu. The feeling that flowed (the word used in the manga) into him when he saw Rei sacrifice herself for Shinji was the beginnings of an understanding of love.
This. I used to dislike manga Kaworu because of his coldness towards Shinji, but thinking more about it I ended understanding him.
This is from the NGE2 kaworu ending apparently
this is after shinji convinced kaworu to live
Kaworu: In the darkness. The White moon. Before I became this “me”……When did I became “me”?……Human, Lilin, I’m alive among the human. Is it better to die there…
so i just watched Evangelion 3.33
and I have a lot of feelings about it, and a lot of criticism too (it felt like a bit of a disappointment after the 2.22 which was just fantastic imo) but I will just comment on one thing I’ve been thinking ever since the first movie came out:
How interesting it is to see your religion being interpreted by someone with a different cultural background!!!
Like, the whole take of evangelion is extremely christian with its notions of apocalypse and crosses all around, but it is so different from how christians generally interpret it. Christianity focus a lot on, well, the figure of a christ, the middle of the story, while Eva is completely focused on the end (and possibility of a new beginning). Even Shinji, if you take the first anime as an example is the figure of the anti-christ in a sense that while christ sacrifices himself for the sake of the world, shinji sacrifices the world for the sake of himself.
also I’m not sure how much of it is on purpose but the alchemic symbology is driving me crazyyyy
That scene with the modified Eva, this is all I could think of:
RE BIS hnngggggggg
I have a loooot of theories about the plot I would like to discuss but unfortunately I dont know any tumblr-chans who have been watching the remakes :/ If anyone would like to debate theories pls hit my ask box!
