Why was Rei normal around Gendo and no-one else?

Why was Rei normal around Gendo and no-one else?

John Johnson

Because he was the only one she ever associated as a father figure. The concept of love was there even though she couldn't put words to it.

Also he did save her when her Eva went berserk...

Rei is a clone of Shinji's mom.

too bad Gendo just cared about fucking Rei 2
Also, why was Rei 1 such a psycopath for such a young clone?

Benjamin Rivera

Well he did save her that time
Also she's like 50% Shinji's mom so that might have something to do with it

Tyler Flores

because gendo fucked her every night?

Jordan Campbell

But two didn't know that. Only genji did

And I think the doctor lady did too...

Ryan Jones

So she just wanted the D?

Jeremiah King

She wasn't crazy, she just couldn't comprehend the emotions that she began to develop.

I feel she was rather confused and scared and had no idea why.

Hunter Evans

When did they say that in the show?

Hunter James

She might have and not know it. Like a subconscious thing.

It's a possible idea

John Hall

Gendo just cared about fucking Rei

Close to the end didn't they? I think the blonde doctor lady said something about it.

Well I remember that it is an important point and that it is mentioned in the series but it's been a while. So I don't remember when exactly.

Somewhere around the point when Blondie strangled that child rei or something... I dunno. Also forgot doctor lady's name

She wasn't called a Yui clone until rebuild. They don't state it in the original.

I always thought this scene felt a little out of place and it's probably because the reason it was created in the first place was to make Shinji jealous. At least that's the impression I got.

Aside from this one little scene that Shinji just so happens to witness Gendo and Rei barely ever act this hurman/normal. I don't want to start a whole "Rei is a doll" debate, but the way she energetically jumps down because she's so eager to talk to him with him smiling is much different from the behavior she displays the rest of the show. Of course we don't see what they're talking about, but it almost looks like they're having a little chat about their day and what happened.

I realize that Gendo "saved" her once and obviously many people see this as a good enough reason for them to act like this, but later on we never see something like this again and this more human side of Gendo completely disappears while Rei also ceases to be as energetic as she was there. You could've almost mitaken her for any other regular girl during this scene.

I never really thought about this idea but I'm not sure that NGE operates like this.
There are some scenes that are arguably the way they are because of how a certain character sees them. One example would be when Shinji imagines Misato and she has no scar (It's up to debate if that was intentional or not, though I think in this case it'd be reasonable to assume it was actually intentional.), but that were always the more trippy scenes. If the Gendo Rei scene is supposed to be biased because we see it from Shinji's perspective it'd basically be a flat out lie to the viewer.

I think Anno fucked up the character development as he wasnt sure what to do with Rei early on
As a result the scene does feel very out of place

kaji fucked asuka every night so it's even

Jackson Powell

Kaji is only interested in teenage boys and christmas cakes.

Rei is the clone (aka not human, therefore no human rights) of Gendou's wife and in addition a younger (more succulent) version of his wife. The ripe version of your wife appears before you after 15 years of loneliness and after fucking like rabbits to accidentally make Shinji.

Its not rocket science to figure out Gendou had a harem of Rei's all begging to eat some of husband/father's cock.

Aska would have liked that, but no. Kaji told her he wants real women.

So in other words, Asuka.

Was it only in the rebuild that rei is established as a clone? I thought it was in the original series, I'm confused.

Because the whole clone thing makes sense though!

Luke Foster

In the original they say that her body is artificial.
The fact that Gendo cares so much about her, that she constantly reminds Shinji of his mother and that she looks just like her make it clear that she's a clone.

Christopher Long

Ok so it's implied subtlety but never said. I can see that as cannon.

Ayden Thompson

They never say anything about how she was made, but Ritsuko does directly compare her to the evas.

Blake Richardson

Why would they need to hire a voice actor for Rei?

David Rogers

Why didn't they replace asuka's with a belt sander

Jacob Roberts

They hired her for Eva 1 and she did some incidental voices like the penguin.

Carson Ward

I actually do remember them saying that. Couldn't tell you when thought...

Jace Perez

Shinji was jealous of his not-mother clone having quality time with his father, that scene specifically was from his viewpoint and probably exaggerated.
