BL Couple of the Week

“Wait a minute,” you say, “But that’s not canon!”

To which I would say: a. I said canon AND plausible, not just canon, and b. the manga called and…

…it is laughing at you.

Anyway, Shinji is the lead of the fan-favorite harem in disguise srs biznes Neon Genesis Evangelion. He whines a lot, or so I’ve heard – I honestly haven’t watched it or read the manga. Kaworu is the obligatory creepily ambiguous male character. Both of them pilot mechas and angst, especially Shinji.

Ok, look, I only discovered the fact that this has some semblance of canon because I’m a total 4ch /cm troll. I have no intention of ever watching this. I once watched five episodes and then stopped because I really couldn’t stand the main characters (Shinji is a whinebox, Asuka is a bitch, and Rei has the emotional range of a rock – thanks, I’ll skip). But you know what? I don’t care. Enjoy the photos.

Oh, and just for shits and giggles…

    You really should just skip to the few episodes that do involve Kaworu (like, what, one?) and enjoy the canon-ness (but not the lame angst)

    @ issa-sa – Which reminds me I swear that Evangelion is really just harem in disguise… one of those less common harems which feature both female and male haremettes, but a harem nonetheless. Someone at Gainax went, “Hey, let’s make a harem!” And someone said, “Yeah, but that’s been done a million times… uh… let’s add robots!” and the first person leaped up on their desk and yelled, “SWEET! When do the figures come out?” And then they asked Hideaki Anno to direct and a lot of people were like, “What? This is depressing/I’m confuzzled…” so they had to make that ‘Angelic Days’ manga to make the harem-lovers happier.

    Yeah, I’m done ranting now. But if I ever do touch any Eva, it’ll be the manga ’cause… I dunno, reading the manga seems like less of an effort than watching the show.

      First of all, you’re retarded if you think that Evangelion started as a harem anime. And it wasn’t Gainax’s idea at all; pretty much it was the sole brainchild of Hideaki Anno who came up with the idea as he was coming out of post-Nadia depression. He wanted to teach others about his philosophy of life and do it in a way that would reach Otaku and other people alike. Anno went to Gainax. NOT the other way around.
      AND
      Angelic Days came out like five million years later so yeah that was mostly fanservice.

      And my recommendation to you is to watch the anime over the manga since it was the original masterpiece and the manga hasn’t even finished yet and it’s been over twenty years I mean that’s a lot of time to change ideas and the original philosophy / purpose has been lost and it’s no long Anno’s vision but more like Sadamoto’s weird fanfiction (since he made so many changes that were obviously not canon in the original…which I guess is his freedom as the mangaka but at the same time it’s not what you could consider as the “real” Evangelion since, like I said, that was all Anno’s brainchild).

      This all being said…
      FKKIN SHINJI x KAWORU IS SOME SEXXI SHIZ I WOULD SHIP THAT ALL DAY AND NIGHT except I also ❤ Shinji x Asuka. WHICH IS CANON FKK YOU REI FANS JUST GIVE IT UP WATCH THE FKKIN END OF EVANGELION IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE ME OR MAYBE YOU'RE JUST TOO RETARDED TO GET THE FACTS.

    Haha, as a Kaworu/Shinji and NGE fan I just love that scene. It’s so funny when the author just know what the fandom wants, ’cause it wasn’t necessary at all for the plot; but I will never ever complain about this!

  4. nobody says:

    coool :D!! kaworu is my favourite guy on NGE. hi is so mystick byt realy great friend of shinjikun. i so laugh my ass off of that moment when kaworu kisses shinjukun<33

  5. Resigned Sidekick says:

    So you don’t seem to like NGE nor do seem to get it yet you still feel compelled to ship two characters. That to me makes no sense whatsoever. I find shippers annoying as heck but I understand that reason that they ship is because they love these characters and their universe so much. Even when the shipping is totally ridiculous and misses the point of what the character dynamic is really about (like Shinji and Kaworu pairing). But shipping just for the sake of shipping is rather odd to me. Does that mean that I think you’re trolling? Yes in fact it does mean I think you’re trolling and just because you seen it in a manga doesn’t make it canon.
