>*sigh* Even if Sadamoto will take the Shinji/Rei route instead of
>Shinji/Asuka (Which I'm a fan of as it seems the anime's purpose is to
>bring them together))
Shinji/Asuka is the pairing that makes sense. Once you learn that Rei is a
clone of Shinji's mother, pretty much any attempt at romantically pairing
them up goes out the window. Plus, the whole Rei/Kaworu thing, which is at
least hinted at in non-canonical sources has to be considered.
>I wish he wouldn't change their personalities so
>drastically, doing that seems to mess up the story, too.
I think the problem comes in considering the Manga as changing the Anime's
story, rather than being an equal yet different take on the same tale. To
some extent, it is more valid than the Anime having come out first and
having been in production longer. It's not a case of saying "Anime!Shinji is
the one true model and Manga!Shinji is an imposter!" but rather comparing
Anno and Sadamoto's take on the same characters.
And while Shinji comes across very differently in the manga than in the
anime, it's different. I sorta prefer the subtleness of Sadamoto's Shinji to
the rawness of Anno's.
