>>185430948>I said it was love
even so I do not see how Shinji expressed his gratitude for Rei>At least it's the closest Shinji comes to genuine love in the series>Kaworu, for my money, doesn't really count because he gives love without asking anything in return
Totally agree, plus Kaworu said he loves Shinji but he betrays Shinji's trust because Kaworu only is interested in meeting with Adam>She says that in his heart she represents the hope that people can come to understand each other, as they did.
With the instrumentality Shinji understood Rei, but Rei understood Shinji?>Rei gives him the genuine emotion behind them
Yes, Rei's emotions are sincere. Like in pic related>Shinji never truly knew or understood Kaworu., so he could never truly love him.
Exactly, Shinji created an idealized image of Kaworu but Shinji never bothered to meet Kaworu because Shinji was only worried about feeling valued by someone
