Gay is great.

You see, fuzzy feelings while playing the piano between two apparently adolecent males, that is gay, becuase one wants to fuck the other.

I stayed up all night, 'cause I wanted to see where the sun went—and then it dawned on me.

Kaworu is great if you want to hang out with a generic boring happy person and play the piano.

If you want to watch an interesting movie....not so great.

No thanks.

We see Kaworu being nice, but never get an explanation of why he cares at all. He just sort of appears out nowhere, does his thing and leaves.

Wrong, he doesn't appear out of nowhere, he appears since the first movie, and we do get an explanation why he cares, the stinger of the second movie. And if he didn't show up in the third, then all he'd be is a douchebag becuase he would then had been doing nothing to help improve anyone's situation when he has a chance.

Kaworu is great when you want to hang out with an awesome sweet gay guy who you can trust. cool

Everyone else is filth.

Kaworu kills kittens!

Your argument is invalid.evil grin

[up][up] I still think of NGE! Kaworu as a douchebag.

He is an angel, angels do the work of god, and everytime someone masturbates, someone has to kill the kitten in the name of god. Let us remember shinji the masturbator.

Princess Ymir's knightess
No, let's not. :c

Everytime shinji masturbates, kaworu kills a kitten. That's how nature works, amirite.

Ah! I remember that scene.

Me: Where'd he get the glue from?

Shinji: I'm so fucked up!

Me: Wait a minute.....that's not glue! Not glue at all! .____.

The stinger of the second movie is explanation that he cares, not why. It sort of implies he's doing the Stable Time Loop thing Homura style....which would be really cool if it turned out to be true, but there isn't that much evidence for it. So no, we don't know why he cares, just that he does for some reason.

He likes shinji, what other explanation you need? Why he likes shinji? becuase he does. Some attractions don't have a determinate reason. That's why attraction is ruled by emotion, not logic.

Sometimes I wish Kaworu had turned out to be a Gendo + Adam clone just for the irony.

[up][up]Glad we cleared that up

[up] He might have a personality then, so no.

It's cicular reasoning, duh, what did you expect? "One day, when shinji was going to grade school he found a lonely kid looking at the sky then a truck was passing by the street and shinji called him over and the kid reacted in time to avoid the truck? And the kid was Kaworu" Something like this? Not even in the original series was Kaworu's attraction to shinji explained beyond, he likes shinji.

And the quote mining is precious. I gotta tell you that.

[up] In the original, it was more like he was normal compared to everyone else and displayed normal human kindness to Shinji, which was enough to make Shinji like him. Rebuild forced it alot, so sucked.

[up]Normal? Let me take you to the communal waters, and, in the hot, moist air, seize your hand and say that I love you.

You know, I feel that 3.0 felt much more plot driven rather than character driven, despite it apparently being more about Shinji. Here, the characters act more because the plot has to get from point A to point B. I feel that this is the film's biggest flaw, especially after the previous film was much more character focused.

It doesn't help that it doesn't really develop the two who were the main focus of 2.0. Rather than continuing the journey of the ones who's journey has been the main focus, it get‛s sidetracked by side characters and messages.

As for Kaworu, what was the unique character trait that he had, other than his possible gayness for Shinji. Yeah, he's the most sympathetic, but that only comes about thanks to the plot demanding that everyone else act like jerks. He's a very static person.

Nunc specula non gerens!
Hi everyone! I just got back from Evangelion Night at my local movie theater! They screened Evangelion 1.0 and Evangelion 2.0 back-to-back (for 10€, a rather nice deal considering it was 3 hours and 40 minutes total) in preparation for Evangelion 3.0 on the 25th. I had already watched both movies on Blu Ray, but they're an entirely different experience on the big screen. I had a great time, now I'm stoked for You can (not) redo! grin
Legend of Korra Season 3 has begun!

[up] I'm looking forward to seeing what you think of it.

Also, apparently the preview for 4.0 that was featured at the end of 3.0 was created via motion-capture. Wonder how they'll use it in the actual film.

Probably not at all. How much have these previews had anything to do with the actual sequel previously?
I'm so sorry that my avatar doesn't appear fully in the shot, but the cat was threatening the photographer.

The 2.0 preview that showed Mari and Asuka showing up? That happened. The 3.0 preview that showed a bunch of things that never happened on screen? Yeah.

So basically, the guys at Khara spent all that time and money for a motion capture scene that might not even be in the film.

Talk about wasteful. tongue
