With Tokyo-3 in ruins, a new Eva pilot shows up to bolster NERV's dwindling ranks. But like the second they start talking about the mysterious final Angel it's like, super obvious that it's definitely him. Which is a shame because Shinji wants to kiss this new boy SO BAD, and apparently there's a lot of controversy over whether their relationship is platonic or romantic and that just makes me weep for the state of arts education because if it was any more obvious that shinji wants to ride Kowaru's Lance of Longinus then Neon Genesis Evangelion would just be softcore porn. COME ON PEOPLE.
