I hereby claim this thread in the name of the Great Goddess, whose divine beauty and serene grace are a blessing to all those who behold her. Those that praise the Goddess will be bathed in the light, while those who dare to slight her receive severe punishment from above.

My fellow believers, never again shall we have to fear the naysayers and the heathens, for this is our place, and they have no right to be here!



... Too much or not enough? I never know. :heh:

First I would like to say, "Yes I am a Nagato fan."

Now with that out of the way. I will be the first to say it, since it should take the sting out of it (well, for me at least...)... Nagato is a newer school Rei Ayanami.

There I said it, now no one else needs to say it and hate on our magical/book loving/Humanoid Interface.

Kogetsu Shirogane 2009-08-26 06:37

Nagato took what Rei started and vastly improved upon it.

She is a dramatic improvement on Rei Ayanami, imo.

Rei's character was ultimately way more creepy than Nagato is, imo, and with Nagato, I get a far stronger sense of serious loyalty to all of her friends than I got from Rei. With Rei, I felt she was loyal to one guy - Gendo.

ac195 2009-08-26 06:39

Like I said she is a newer school Rei Ayanami. A version up if you will.

Kogetsu Shirogane 2009-08-26 06:39

... Shinji, too, towards the end. But this isn't the Rei thread, dang it. :heh:

It's a Rei thread now, dammit. The reason that I don't like Nagato so much is because she is the new Rei. She's that someone who is so quiet, you can say anything to her and not have a responce (with two words or more).

And then she'll fuck you up in a fraction of a second.

Daniel Lind 2009-08-26 09:35

Nagato is not an improvement upon Rei Ayanami, she is completely another take on the archetype.

OkamiNoKaze 2009-08-26 09:45

Yuki is easily my second favorite on the show.

I'm pretty sure it was
Spoiler for might be a spoiler for someone:


That scene was so epic, in fact that entire scene is probably one of the greatest in all of anime.

Ithekro 2009-08-26 10:01

Think is, I never cared all that much for Rei, but I'm all for Yuki. Rei was suppose to be creepy and not liked (though the creator got it wrong it seems). Yuki is suppose to be liked, and this was successfully implemented. A take on the quiet, sort of mysterious girl with short hair. Yuki adds to this with the reading and at first the glasses. Then she tops it with powers and abilities followed by her eyes. Eyes are the well to the soul, and by looking into Yuki's eyes you can see that she has one.

Heatth 2009-08-26 10:03

As expected from Nagato-san, Her tread is already the bigger of the character treads :heh:

Anyway, I agree she is a kinda copy of Rei, even her name is a pun to it. Both 'Nagato' and 'Ayaname' are battleships and 'Rei' mean 'could while 'Yuki can mean 'snow'.

I don't used to like Nagato, even though her battle scene with Asakura is awesome. However, latter books make me change my opinions. After then, I can easly say she is a vastly improoved version of Rei. It is spoiler, tough.

I guess you can say that too. I don't say Eva anime, however, the Rei from the manga is very similar to Nagato, in how their emotions grows with the time.

Jintor 2009-08-26 10:08

Rei was a deconstruction of the emotionaless girl archetype; I'm not sure whether Yuki is a straight play of the trope or some kind of subversion.

Ithekro 2009-08-26 10:08

I'd point out that the Ayanami was a destroyer (all three of them)...a rather small warship of its day. Nagato was a rather large battleship in its day. Also rather fast in its day, and the first to sport 16 inch guns, the most powerful type in general use until the production of the 18 inch guns for the Yamato, some 20 years later, and as large as anything used by any other Naval Power's guns fitted since Nagato was launched.

Small note: Battleship Nagato was the only Japanese Battleship to survive the Second World War. It was taken by the United States for inspection and then later used along with many older America warships of the same vintage, as a target in the Bikini atomic bomb tests. She sank there.

PrincessFrani 2009-08-26 10:09

Yuki has to be the best out of the SOS Brigade. She might even be more godly than Haruhi.

Yessss. This is what I find most interesting about Nagato. She has all these powers at her disposal, yet her job is only to observe, and occasionally protect Kyon. It almost seems backwards that she has control of all this granted power from ITE, while concurring with the other parties that Haruhi is the one holding all the cards.

Book 4 make me thinks Yuki is more like a subversion
Spoiler for novel4:

Solais 2009-08-26 10:32

Nagato is nothing like TEH Rei. She's way above her.
Rei is creepy, and it doesn't help her that she's in the most hated anime of mine.
Nagato kicks ass. She's one of the myriad goddesses of mine.

Starry Dust 2009-08-26 12:02

You can say I came VERY late to the party of seeing the awesome-ness that is Yuki Nagato lol.

Maybe because I knew her archetype right away that I didn't like her as much.
But I'm finally finding her more interesting :)
