i look forward to evangelion fans meticulously listing every bad thing Gendo's Dad did.

Also still want a giant robot.

Oh my god, exactly! I didn't get it either... That kid was just so ungrateful I stopped watching!

I am in agreement with everything said thus far.

Continue.

I laughed way harder then I should have..

This can't be an Neon Genesis Evangelion comic.
THE ENDING MADE PERFECT SENSE!

Grey Carter:
I'm just saying that by any sane metric, Gendo Ikari is the best dad in the universe.

All that abandoning you for years, using you as a pawn in my schemes, and never treating you like a son. Forcing you to constantly hang around two beautiful women who will never sleep with you and a 'robot' I treat more like my own child than you, that TOTALLY makes up for it right?

... I just now realized. Granted, the guy is still one of the most massive pricks in the universe if you look at everything else he did, but... shit.

Shinji's an ungrateful, whiny bitch.

... btw, I'd honestly accept that offer if it only offered Rei, mainly because I <3 Rei over Asuka and Misato.

Its simple. Kill the Batman After watching numerous 'deep' Animes (Tenchi Muyo won't man up either) i have come to the conclusion that Japanese males in Anime just don't like women. Like at all. They also whine about it. ALL the time.

In the west we call this the "Shut up and fuck her in the ass" hypothesis.

I can give you the exact reason why this makes sense... because Shinji is a complete toolbox that's lethally uncomfortable around women. This is the kid that was such a watery male that he literally turned into a puddle for an entire episode.

Besides, isn't this an anime trope from way back? The Chaste Hero? The Clueless Chick Magnet?

Well during the obligatory mental breakdowns coming thick and fast towards the end of the series, one of the aforementioned hot girls almost did sleep with him, and the other was a tsundere for him but Shinji was too wrapped up in his own issues to notice... yet was fantasizing about her anyway.

No, no, Shinji is just a shrinking violet on the recieving end of a trauma conga line.

I like big red haired guy with no name. Ima call him fatty red head.

Eh, man up and take what you can get? I can see why you'd be pissed but... smoken babes and alien god robot!

I think that in the end, Gendo really ended up caring more about his daughter, Lizzie.
Slightly more OT: Always wanted to watch this, but then I heard that the protagonist has a wank over some girl in a coma.
Nope.

If my Dad gave me a giant robot and three super hot chicks to live with he could get away with just about anything.

Yeah, that's Evangelion if you leave out

aaaall the character relationships, personalities and psychological issues.

Just those little things, y'know. That little "Deconstruction" thing the show had going on.

You left out who the robot was made out of, and likewise who the "super submissive chick" was engineered from -- because that makes him even more of a dick.

So he get the chance to be bangin' the robot to...? I'm not seeing the problem? If daddy abandoned him for so long, he should have moved on and then proceeded to reap the rewards!

The only logical conclusion as to why Shinji would run away would be if he could foresee the future.

I'd imagine that if anyone could see in the future that, MAJOR SPOILERS HERE, they will pilot a giant robot made from their mom's soul, they will nearly be molested by the hot 30 something with extreme daddy issues, they will find out that the red head they pine for actually becomes a manic depressive who's also a clinger, and that they will grope the submissive chick who later turns out to be their genetic mother, they'd probably high-tail it as well.

But as it stands Shinji can't see the future, he's just an ungrateful bastard who happens to unintentionally try to dodge the bullet.

I really don't like NGE at all. Every episode was just another monster of the day and how they kill it. "THERMAL EXPANSION!!" lol. Shinji was just really whiny and the ending made no sense at all.

That said, even I know that this comic is quite exaggerated.

yeah feeling about the same: son i know i haven't always been there for you and will probably be a prick forever but here's a giant robot and some hot babes

How can you pass up the opportunity to woo a submissive cutie?

The ordering in bulk joke is hilarious if you're familiar with the show.

EWWW! You must not know how gross that is!

If that "guy" doesn't want them I will gladly take them off his hands.

Well, they are crazy bitches and you feel all the pain the robot feels in battle.

Could work well for a sadomasochist.

You think that is bad? In one of the movies he fapped to the unconcious redhead right next to her.

It was fuckin' disgusting and the main reason I stopped watching any animes (except for Death Note/FMA).

I'll just leave this here.

(Not that I mean anything by it, but I always think of this image whenever someone makes the usual complaints about Eva.)

I didn't even watch enough of the show to know all the characters. Because I was pissed off at it by the end of the first episode for other reasons.

TL;DR, If they're trying to stop world-destroying giants, why are they wasting so much power and material?!

She wasn't just in unconscious. Pretty sure she was in hospital at the time too.

Not sure why you stopped watching anime because of one scene though. Seems pretty weird.

Just keep watching the series and you'll see that the Dad isn't so nice any longer. In fact it's actually the reason I stopped reading the manga because the dad would be such an asshole and do such evil things.

The guy just didn't get any happy moments after a certain point.

Ordering in bulk was the funniest part of the strip xD

Ah, shame the Slice site isn't up. Gonna keep checking in.

Lost all faith/interest in it really. It was disgusting, that scene. Thankfully the ending to FMA (the original, not brotherhood) brought renewed interest in the entire genre.

On the contrary, I know exactly how gross that is. He can go back in time and become his own father, then the overly convoluted series won't exist and the world will just be destroyed by the angels, Best ending out there!

Eva... ah, Eva. I watched every single episode in a 24 hour period just so I could scream at the friend who gushed about it, and be able to match him scene for scene. Gods I hated that Anime. And I so wish I had that sort of time these days.

Sure, the whole situation is fucked up for him, but that's all the more reason he should be making the best of it. i.e. The Shut Up And Fuck Her In The Ass Hypothesis.

*looks at Pandora's image*

Oh my...

Fuck. He's absolutely right.

Consider me Hannibal Lectured.

:/

Meh.
