That was a running joke I shared with my friend, so much so that if any of us mentioned the "Eva joke", both of us know what exactly was being talked about.

BTW, the punchline was "She thinks he's cute." We were like .

Maybe Gendo tapped all the right buttons in bed

What with his extensive harem throughout the series, I'd say he probably knows his stuff in that department.

It's probably his sweet mouth. Heck, two smart women fell in love with him.

Three, if you count Ritsuko's mother.

...Which you probably shouldn't, I guess.

I counted her among the two. Is Rei considered "smart"?

Uh, it would Ritsuko, Ritsuko's mother... and Yui, naturally. Rei isn't really confirmed. (though likely seeing how messed up the guy is)

That's sort of true, but I'd find it odd if Shinji didn't see it coming. In addition, at times, I got the impression Shinji didn't like his father either. All the same, he's still a kid; so, that may explain why that kind of statement would have a big impact, particularly so, when Shinji was in a state of depression.

Except Anime Gendo downright states that he was sorry for the way he'd always acted towards Shinji, and that he simply did it because he didn't feel worthy of Shinji's love and because he himself was afraid that Shinji would reject him.

Hell, my memory is quite terrible. All the same, it's been almost 5 years since I re-watched Eva the last time.

When did he say that, EoE?

Yes. His final scene went like this:

Gendo: I've waited so long for this moment to arrive. I will finally be with you again, Yui. When Shinji's near me... all I ever do is cause him pain. I thought it was better when I did nothing at all.
Yui: Were you afraid of Shinji?
Gendo: I didn't believe that anyone could love me. I never deserved to be loved.
Kaworu: So, you were running away... and you rejected the others around you... so there was no chance you would ever be hurt.
Yui: And you were terrified by the invisible bonds that people form.
Rei: You were afraid, and so you closed off your heart.
Gendo: And so, this is my retribution. Forgive me, Shinji.

Forgot about Ritsuko herself. But, hell, you're dating a man that has dated your mom? Alarms should have gone off long ago.

New chapter out. Nice scene with Shinji and Misato. And looks like it'll all start next chapter.

Reading this chapter, I'm reminded of Nagasawa Miki's and Koyasu Takehito's excellent voicing of this part of the movie. Oh, and Hiro Yuuki too.

Finally. Only been 466 days since the previous chapter's scanlation was released!

But yeah, that's a pretty interesting twist on the EoE events. Looking forward to where it goes from now.
