"Shiro misses his mother"
— Mazinger Z, chapter ninety title (Spanish dub)
"You miss her every day, but don't even have any pictures, barely any memories. No one tells you about her."
— Shinji talking about his and Asuka 's mothers, Advice and Trust, chapter 1
Shinji thought about that, and about what Asuka said regarding them never losing their mothers, and how when she made him talk about her he had felt so dejected until she took his hand and shared her own pain with him. And then he realized that even though he badly missed her, he was also glad he could remember her. Her memory remained strong in him because he loved her, and the day he stopped missing her was the day he stopped loving her.
