The skin from Shinji's face was also peeled off when he reached in to Zeruel's core when he was rescuing Rei. It's just a visual motif representing "loosing human form", i guess (something that...

Oh sure, in the series. There, it was made into a point that Asuka is plain delusional and overtly proud of her meager achievements.

OTOH, Rebuild, from the same perspective, is just fucking...

Doting so much on Rei isn't really out of character for Shinji. Is just a more romantic, fluffier version of the near monomaniac fixation he displayed for Kaworu in the series.
