Why so, my friends say that after I watch the 2003 I should watch Brotherhood.

It really depends. Some people do like both (my brother for instance), some people prefer the first one and some people like Brotherhood the best.

I would reccomend that you have a small waiting period before watching brotherhood so that you're not comparing the second too heavily with the first.

Finished 'The Irresponsible Captain Tylor'; the ending was weak and hard to understand but overall I had a lot fun watching that show!

Some number of generally good anime have weak endings. Last Exile, for instance.

Anyways I've watched a lot of stuff that I haven't talked about.

Steins;Gate, A little slow at first but really good. To sum it up, it's basically a science fiction slice of life conspiracy anime with compelling characters and an interesting view on time travel.

Junjou Romantica, It was okay. I haven't watched a lot of Yaoi, but this was basically an average romance with dudes. It had it's moments but other than that I thought it was dissapointing.

School Days, worth watching.

Welcome to the NHK, a really well done show. It was funny, sad and explored psychological problems really well. The soundtrack was also really good.

Good Song Example 1
Good Song Example 2

Inferno Cop, best anime of the millenium.


I also watched 28 episodes of One Piece before dropping it. I'm probably going to keep watching it because it'll be really impressive if I do.

Okay, I just watched episode 24 during my rewatch of NGE and I have to say that Shinji and Kaworu's relationship isn't very ambiguous. Kaworu has pretty strong feelings towards Shinji, while Shinji is somewhat attracted to Kaworu.

Evidence:
Spoiler: show
First clue is that Kaworu asks to shower with Shinji so that he can get to know him better. Then there's this exchange:

Shinji: Yeah I have to go to bed.
http://i.imgur.com/ZDrh8Hj.png
Kaworu: With me?

Kaworu actually says that he loves Shinji:

He also attempts to hold his hand in the bath:

And he says shit like this:

And Shinji is constantly blushing every other time Kaworu says something.

Shinji also kisses Asuka once awkwardly after she asks him, and he does that thing in EoE but there's never really that romantic air around those two. As for Rei, her relationship with Shinji is pretty obvious in Rebuild 2.22.

Tell her she should just save herself the effort and read the manga. The anime stops like halfway through.

Silverdream, shipping is stupid. It is especially stupid in NGE, Shinji is destined to be with his right hand to the very end.

Is it still shipping when the ship is canon?

I don't even begin to claim that the Shinji/Rei pairing is plausible. Pick whichever one you want, but once you start getting pretentious enough to declare it better than others, or worse claim "canonicity", you've crossed a line. Unlike in the case of Gendo/Yui, neither the creator nor the work have commented on Shinji's relationships except with regards to their abortive nature. In fact, that Shinji is unable to form functional relationships with others, much less a romantic one, is a central foundational theme of the work. Kaworu could just as easily be interpreted as a very kind-hearted, if somewhat creepy, friend, so romantic intentions are clear non-unambiguous. Furthermore, the creepiness is justified if we consider that Kaworu
Spoiler: show
is an Angel
who likely had little previous social interaction with others or understanding of human social mores. Even proposed pairings with Asuka, Rei, and Misato which still fail canonicity have more explicit evidence than this (Asuka's and Misato's kisses, Toji's comment to Rei and her Armisael mind-rape, etc.). Overall, I've always perceived of Kaworu as an inspiring (at least until the end of the episode) example of a good friend supporting a depressed comrade in need, and seeing it as a gay pairing ruins that on multiple levels.

On the other hand, I can't speak to Rebuild 3.0, so this argument only applies to the original series.

Good point about Rei, but I would argue that it was because

Spoiler: show
of her maternal instinct since Yui also wanted to become one with her son.


Kaworu literally says I love you, holds his hand and flirts with him. Asuka asks him for a kiss out of boredom, which Shinji reluctantly agrees to.
Spoiler: show
Asuka also later hates Shinji, which makes their relationship much more complicated.


As for Misato,
Spoiler: show
I think she was just desperate to get him in the Evangelion. Otherwise she's a pedophile.


Kaworu does work as a friend, but I would say that he definitely loves Shinji more than that. I think Shinji may be confused about his feelings with Kaworu, but he also feels comfortable enough to confess his personal secrets to. For an introvert who keeps a lot of his emotions bottled up, it speaks a lot that he's willing to do that within a day of meeting him.
