What Is The Meaning Behind Misato And Shinji Relationship? | Anime Amino
And if there's one overarching point Eva has about relationships, it's that And that reveals a deeper problem: Shinji falls in love with Kaworu. Though fans have speculated on what kind of relationship Shinji had with Kaworu it is at least clear that Kaworu represented a sort of idealized. Now we have the opposite problem – every time there's two girls holding hands, Shinji's relationship with Kaworu, to me, is vague and can be.Shinji x Kaworu- Kiss me through the phone
Later, Kaworu, along with Rei, appears in Shinji's mind and argues with Shinji in regards to the case of humanity and in favor of individualism and free choice. Rebuild of Evangelion[ edit ] Promotional materials for Rebuild of Evangelion showed prominent images of Kaworu in his plugsuit with the other Children. In the second film, Gendo and Fuyutsuki travel to the Moon to observe the construction of the Mark. He turns towards them and calls someone a father.
In the end, Kaworu comes down from the Moon with the Mark. Afterwards he says that the promised time has come and that this time he will bring Shinji happiness.
The preview of the third film shows Kaworu confronting four other pilots in an unknown location. In the third film, fourteen years after the second film, he appears to now be working for NERV.
Storming the Ivory Tower: The Remarkable Queerness of Shinji Ikari
During Shinji's stay at NERV, he forms a friendship with Kaworu, who teaches him how to play the piano, and stargazes with him. Later when Shinji asked what had happened to the people he knew, Kaworu takes him to the ruins of Geofront and Tokyo-3, explaining that Shinji's awakening of Unit caused the Third Impact and further decimated the world. He also reveals the aim of the ongoing Human Instrumentality Project: On the day of the operation, Shinji is unsure whether to follow Gendo's orders or Misato's plea to not pilot an Evangelion again, so Kaworu takes the choker off Shinji and wears it as a sign of trust.
When Unit reaches Lilith's corpse, Kaworu realizes that both spears are similar and pleads with Shinji to not remove them. The awakened Unit flies out of the Geofront and rises into the sky, starting Fourth Impact. Kaworu reveals he is the First Angel, now "cast down" to the Thirteenth. The choker detects Unit's awakening and activates. To halt Fourth Impact, Kaworu allows the choker to kill him before Shinji's eyes.
Shinji so obviously 'digged' Kaworu in a romantic way, it's hard to believe anyone can watch episode 24 and come to the conclusion that Shinji liked Kaworu merely as a friend. There's no way platonic love can get as strong as the love Shinji had for Kaworu in the space of a few hours. It just doesn't happen, whereas with a romantic connection, such a relationship is realistic. Here your comparison can apply, as exactly what kind of situation is Shinji in?
Due to the weight of what he is doing, the confusion brought on by the truth of Rei's existence, that all his friends are gone, Asuka, someone whom he relied on, is comatose, and not mention Shinji himself is far from "adjusted", don't you think normal social rules have been thrown out the window yet? Besides, I've made 1-day friends myself, people whom I only knew even less as long as Shinji did Kawrou, individuals I interacted closely with and shared personal thoughts to.
My life was meaningful, because of you.
Are you that makes me Gay as well? Many people applaud Evangelion for dealing with human nature in a realistic way - yet these same people say that Shinji accepting Kaworu touching his hand while they were in the shower, Shinji's cheeks turning red at this, and Shinji not even flinching when this happenend is how platonic love is expressed by two men.
But it can be, if you understand the kind of person Shinji is. He accepts thing even as they are, in fear that he will become more "uncomfortable" if he does not. Sakura Nagashi is a song about coping with grief, and mourning for a lover deceased.
Guess who dies in that film If the song is read in that light, then the lyrics are very revealing of Shinji's feelings towards Kaworu. You were so beautiful. What would you think of me, living without you? What about any of that is 'ambiguous'? Far less blatant is the open admiration Bridge Bunny Maya has towards her superior Ritsuko, though unfortunately for her Ritsuko is far too busy getting banged by Gendo. Ritsuko and Maya get a Crowning Moment of Awesome in episode 13, when they defeat the Eleventh Angel by reprogramming a computer.
Kaworu and Shinji (Relationship)
This being MayaRitsuko gets excessively fangirled for her contribution. Let's not forget the onsen bath scene with Misato and Asuka. Through suggestive dialogue and giggling it's hinted that Misato was feeling up her mutually naked charge in some rather provocative ways, under the blanket of being "innocent girlie fun.
Amusing as the idea may be, it's not canon, though you can really imagine what you want with Eva And there's a scene in Rebuild 2. Shinji reminds him that he's a boy and in response Kaji says "No problem.
Gender shouldn't get in the way of love," places his hand on Shinji's, gets close to his face, and tries or pretends to to kiss him and Shinji blushes, letting out an almighty squeal. In episode 17, Kaji inexplicably flirts with Shinji. Wanna go out for tea? You know, I'm a boy. So if that had been the final version, Kaworu wouldn't have been the first person to say that to him. Their interactions in "The Day Tokyo-3 Stood Still" actually bordered on a bizarre case of Belligerent Sexual Tensionespecially since they made temporary peace with each other in the end.
In Rebuild of EvangelionAsuka later volunteers to pilot Unit 03 so that Rei can bring Shinji and his father closer together. She does this for Rei, who in most incarnations she doesn't care for at all. They're on better terms in Angelic Days as well, once even holding hands. Even in the main manga adaptation, Asuka grows more comfortable in Rei's presence over time.
When Shinji's in the hospital following his battle with Eva, the two of them are together in the waiting lobby though quite a distance apart due to Rei sitting down while Asuka's standing against the wall and vocalize their thoughts and concerns about Shinji to one another.
The later scenes of Asuka declaring her hatred of Rei for being an emotionless doll never occur, with Kaworu being in Rei's place for one of them, and some of Sadamoto's artwork has Rei positioned as almost the Kaworu to Asuka's Shinji in terms of personal space. Quite frankly, it's impossible to miss. After Rei reveals her true origins she expects Asuka to hate her, only for Asuka to scream at her that she doesn't care about what Rei is after all they've been through together.
Remember that this is Asuka we're talking about, who hated Rei at the beginning.
