people playing eoe’s last scene as romantic more like what the fuck have you been watching
end of evangelion is the most nihilistic animated film ever, and i know kazuya tsurumaki himself stated they didn’t want to simply end it with “love saves the world”
so what are we supposed to take from that last scene?
simple. shinji wakes up to this wasteland and the only person left is asuka. keep in mind the whole movie is about shinji realizing the abuse asuka has given him, and basically shinji learning that everyone is fucked up.
so he strangles her. because he’s finally made some progress, finally convinced himself to live, and he finds asuka beside him. this must be some cruel joke, right? right?
the cheek-touch that asuka does? knowing her she’s trying to slap him across the beach. nobody dares touch asuka, especially a crying, shaking shinji.
shinji’s eyes widen when he realizes that asuka is actually alive, and that he’s probably going to learn how to live on this fucking wasteland with miss congeniality for company. so he does the normal, human thing, and he breaks down.
asuka being asuka, thinks he is absolutely disgusting. she probably fought hard to come back to life, and all that’s left to greet her is a post-apocalyptic wasteland, the giant head of the girl she hates, and the boy who’s simultaneously rejected her childish advances and ruined her false pride is the only one left.
end of evangelion is literally one big middle finger to the otaku culture, and i wouldn’t be surprised if the ending was meant to be interpreted as “and fuck you too! anno out!”
if you dont love heavy you’re wrong
you don’t know pain until you love a character who’s not a series regular
