Evangelion 2.22 review

So, 2.0 review- I liked it a lot. AWESOME LADIES ALL OVER THE PLACE AND I FEEL FAR MORE HOPEFUL ABOUT THE PROSPECTS OF EVERYONE INVOLVED?

-Mari is pretty wonderful. I have a feeling she has some problems (IT’S THE FRANCHISE FOR THAT) but I liked her attitude and sense of humor. Also badassery. And when she was like “OH I GUESS STUFF JUST WORKS OUT FOR THIS KID WHEN HE DOES STUFF” about Shinji, lol. Yes it works out then gets infinitely worse but you know maybe not so much this time.

-I reeeally liked that Asuka got a genuine badass entrance. She never got to be much of a badass in the original until like, the last second before getting lanced. So it was sort of frustrating? But here she’s actually got cred.

-Also Asuka calling out Touji’s sexist jackassery. I LOVE YOU FOREVER BB KEEP SPEAKIN THE TRUTH. What I’ve always liked Asuka I’LL ADMIT IT.

So I actually missed the scene of Kaworu being like “immmm here” between the credits and preview

because the hotel remote literally did not have a fast forward button, only a next one so when I skipped over the credits it went right to the preview

but now I’ve seen it and like

Kaworu

"I WILL GIVE YOU HAPPINESS SHINJI IKARI!!!!" but then in the subs he says "this time, I will give you happiness, if no one else"

so does that mean that Kaworu remembers the original series somehow even though they are in different continuities.

is that his power

because that would be so hilarious i can’t even tell you

KAWORU KNOWS ALL.

"hey so do you remember the bath scene"

"what no what are you talking about"

"you don’t!!! hang on we have to reenact this Shinji"

Misato: That’s because the Japanese spirit is about being perceptive and considerate.

NOT THAT WE’RE BRAGGING
also we are ninjas get used to that Asuka.

Kaji: Women love men who knows their way around the kitchen, Shinji.

I like how Asuka is glaring at her food here, after she’s said it’s good.
Like

Touji: Nuh-uh, I’m not gonna cook! It’s no job for a man!

Asuka: Talk about old-fashioned. So idiotic.

ilu Asuka look at that look of utter disgust.

Then Touji’s like “it’s important to have principals”

And Asuka’s like “no not if they’re stupid principals.”

which is my motto too.

Interestingly,this exchange happened in the original when it was just Shinji there and Shinji was like “Okaaaaay but Misato hates guys like that” when Touji bought it up but then let it drop after he was like “principals!!!”  but obviously Asuka would not accept that. It was interesting because it was an example of Shinji actually delivering a burn on behalf of his lady friends tho. You can be cool sometimes, Shinji!

Touji: The hell d’you say?
Shinji (shoving food at Touji): Forget about it, just eat, just eat.

Shinji’s not so secret desire to nurture everyone is probably my favorite thing about him? If it weren’t for all his other issues, I can imagine him appointing himself OFFICIAL TEAM MOM FOR ALL TIME of any group he was in. I think he probably gets that aspect of his personality from his Mom too, so awwww.

Shinji: Sorry, Ayanami, was it not to your taste?

Asuka: Why do you Japanese apologize when you haven’t done anything wrong?!

I was pleased that they kept Asuka’s “FUCK YOU GUYS FOR APOLOGIZING TOO MUCH!” tirades idk why I found them hilarious.

Asuka: WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO PICK A FIGHT TEACHER’S PET?

You could blink and Asuka would think you were trying to pick a fight. 
I can’t help it I adore her.
