Are you looking for:
- A bisexual protagonist [ still growing to understand their sexuality and that it doesn’t have to be rigid ]
- Who is shown realistically dealing with issues of anxiety, depression, PTSD and societal pressures
- Is relatable in many ways
- Shows all…
He’s never in a relationship with Kaworu wtf stop trying to impose social commentary on Eva.
Ah yes, social commentary
because there’s no way that the writer of the show was intentionally trying to suggest anything, god forbid, gay by having Kaworu flat-out literally tell Shinji he loves him and hold hands with him naked in a public bath and have a sleepover with him where he tells Shinji he was born to meet him, through all of which shinji blushes furiously, and then having him show up in another universe to play the most overtly homoerotic piano duet known to the history of man and be framed in this shot which is an overtly romantic cinematic trope and then single-handedly give shinji the hope to live (and oh look shinji’s blushing again) framed by another dramatic shot of them holding hands again
that social commentary
i’ll just leave my microphone here if you don’t mind
I can argue ad infinitum about the validity of Kaworu’s agape love for Shinji.
But you cannot tell me for even a second that it isn’t there and that it isn’t reciprocated.
The end of Evangelion is firmament and proof of that.
