* [[spoiler: Shinji's rejection of Instrumentality in chapters 93 and 94 is even more heartwarming than it is in]] ''[[spoiler: End of Evangelion]]''[[spoiler:, due in large part to an extended conversation with a Rei/Lilith that is more Rei than Lilith, with a little bit of TearJerker mixed in. Rei tells Shinji that the world he returns to will be one where walls around people's hearts prevent them from understanding each other, where their hands and words will hurt him. Shinji responds that that may happen, but he must confirm it for himself, find the purpose of his existence, and that "it's possible for two hearts to commune the way ours did that day," [[{{Flashback}} flashing back]] to the time when Shinji and Rei held hands and truly connected. Several flashbacks then show hands being used to hurt Shinji and by Shinji to hurt others, followed by hands used in friendship and comfort. Shinji then tells Rei that he wants to hold her hand once more, and the two proceed to clasp hands, triggering the beginning of Instrumentality's end. Rei then tells Shinji that, "I am glad that I met you. I was nobody and empty. But now I am full of what you taught me. I am very happy. But this goodbye." She then smiles, and asks if her expression is the appropriate one, referring all the way back to chapter 19/episode 6 (and this page's image). At this Rei lets goes of Shinji's hand, and still smiling, passes on as Lilith falls apart.]]

*** He did find peace with himself in ''End'' too, or at least overcame his issues. One of his final lines as he returns from instrumentality is "I am....myself". The fact that Shinji is now able to calmly make a self-affirming statement like that indicates that he has overcome his self-hatred. Plus he has resolved to continue living in reality in the hope of finding his happiness. Shinji finally understands that pain is an inevitable part of life and reality and chooses ''not'' to run away from it anymore, even with the knowledge that he'll eventually be hurt again. Shinji may not necessarily be happy yet, but he has indeed changed and grown as a person (and has even become a stronger person than his father). It's just not as overtly optimistic as the TV ending. However, he still hasn't made peace with Asuka, which is what the final scene is for (see the entry for ''End'' below for more info).

*** He did find peace with himself in ''End'' too. One of his final lines as he returns from instrumentality is "I am....myself"; and he has resolved to continue living in reality in the hope of finding his happiness. These things parallel his "I am me! I want to be myself!" and "I want to continue existing in this world!" statements from the TV ending. It just happens with a more somber tone as opposed to the TV ending's more optimistic tone. However, he still hasn't made peace with Asuka, which is what the final scene is for (see the entry for ''End'' below for more info).
