Third Child: Shinji Ikari by behindinfinity Third Child: Shinji Ikari by behindinfinity
<tt>I wonder when it started... the drifting...

It's like my mind and body have come apart, little by little... Whenever something sad or painful happens... It's like there's another me who watches it... like it's happening to someone else, and I'm thinking... "That's not me."

It's okay. I can live like that.

I'll lock my heart away deeper... I won't have to feel pain outside or inside... or the fear...

I WON'T HAVE TO FEEL ANYTHING AT ALL.</tt>


Shinji suffers from the "Hedgehog's Dilemma". This condition prevents him from getting close to other humans. Think of it this way: humans are all hedgehogs with their sharp needles. The more they want to get closer, the more they injure each other with their spines. This is how Shinji observes human relationships and is therefore very much withdrawn in personality.

Some may say Shinji is the epitome of a wimp, and even he himself believes that to be true. If told that he is worthless, he would most likely nod his head mutely in agreement. But this is due to years of having his spirit crushed by his many unfortunate circumstances.

(Sorry, we were all so excited about having group shots and shooting photos portraying Shinji's relationships with the characters that we didn't realize that Shinji didn't have enough solo shots! Haha!)

"Some may say Shinji is the epitome of a wimp"

Does being the most realistic 14 year old protagonist in the anime medium make you a wimp? I know that you didn't say that, but every time I hear someone bashing Shinji just because he's not some wish-fulfilling role-model I get so pissed I could go berserk.

I'm told I looked like Shinji when I was a bit younger.
Especially considering the picture they saw when they said that had me in the white shirt and same outfit with almost the same cassette player.
I kid you not.



One of these days I should go do some sort of group cosplay with somebody, but it's hard since I live in the middle of nowhere. xD

Wow, even though they don't look like the characters, they LOOK like the characters. This is great cosplay. Shinji's expression is dead on.

And yet Shinji still kicks angelic ass. Pissing off Asuka in the process. You guys are good. I bet the Live action movie will totally fail to capture this.
