This girl has fucking BLUE hair

Jaxon Cruz

Why nobody gives a shit?
The setting tries to be realistic even with sci-fi elements then why is there a fucking girl with blue hair and red eyes?

Juan Bennett
Juan Bennett

I see girls with blue and pink hair irl and don't give a shit. Maybe they think she bleaches and colours it.Maybe she's just chuuni.

Brandon Turner
Brandon Turner

Because her hair has always been blue, and the kids at school are used to it. Since she never talks, nobody cares. The series states that the other students think she's a wierdo, but they never say or do a thing about it

Sebastian Martinez
Sebastian Martinez

"Canonically" her hair is white. She's albino.
It's just represented as blue because it looks cuter as a cartoon.
The same reason Misato's black hair is represented as purple.

Adam Richardson

I FUCKING KNOW RIGHT

You're so fucking ignorant when my mother gave birth to me l had pink hair but years through depression mirdered my soul and know its only black(like my soul).

Easton Kelly

Dude, the show has giant fucking robots. Don't expect realism.

Ryan Nelson

No dumbass, her hair is canonically blue.
Misato's hair is a blackish purple.

Hudson Bennett
Hudson Bennett

His point is that their hair is presented in an exotic colour because its an anime, but story wise Rei has white hair (because she's an albino, hence red eyes and pale skin too) and Misato has black hair (because she's japanese)

They just changed it to something more interesting because its an anime and they need to differentiate characters more. The characters aren't aliens with weird hair, and they don't dye.

Matthew Powell
Matthew Powell

It is just too deep for you to understand, user

Isaac Flores
Isaac Flores

That makes no fucking sense. If her hair is supposed to be white it would be white.
Her hair story wise is blue. Canonically its blue.
And she can't be albino because blue has pigment.

Jordan Perry

Rei
blue hair
red eyes

Asuka
red hair

What's the matter?
To deep?

Hunter Scott

Are you autistic?
It's white that's portrayed as blue because anime cuteness.
Do you really think all those characters with green/red/purple/pink hair are seen in-universe as having wild hair colors?
Of fucking course not. It's a stylistic representation of a fantastical setting using color to differentiate, identify and give hints to the personalities of the characters.
It's basic shit that Rei, being the quiet, emotionless one, would be given a blue template. Blue is used to represent serenity, peacefulness, thoughtfulness and introspection.
The exact opposite of a fiery color like red. Which can represent wild attitude, aggression, energy, intensity and passion. Gee, I wonder if there isn't a character to whom a red color palette is applied who might represent a few of those characteristics.

Camden Adams

Why are girls with blue hair so cute?

Jason Moore
Jason Moore

If they wanted it to be white, they would have just made it white.
There's even another character in the show with white hair.

You're dumb.

Adrian Turner

Fuck off.

Brayden Ramirez

Yep. Literally autistic if you think everything must be literally as it is shown.

John Nelson
John Nelson

Do you really think all those characters with green/red/purple/pink hair are seen in-universe as having wild hair colors?
Because an albino stands out so much less?

Parker Green
Parker Green

At least i'm not the retard who thinks blue is white.
They could have just as easily made her hair white from 'anime cuteness', but they didn't. It's blue.

Jonathan Cook

If your parents give a shit about your education and your future,why we should give a shit about a girl with blue hair and red eyes?

Owen Harris
Owen Harris

There's even another character in the show with white hair.
Are you retarded?
That's a very good reason to give her blue hair.

Camden Brooks
Camden Brooks

You're literally a moron. Do you take everything literally?

Sebastian Brooks
Sebastian Brooks

Look at it this way dumbshit

If there were a live action adaptation of the show, Misato's hair would be black.

In fact, they show a live action version of her in EoE and her hair is black.

From the perspective of the characters in a real world scenario, these characters do not have wild and wacky hair styles. The colours are used as visual representations of their personality and artistic flair.

Do you look at an impressionist painting and say "MAN THAT MUSTVE BEEN A REALLY UGLY WOMAN PICASSO PAINTED THERE"?

Kevin Gutierrez
Kevin Gutierrez

Live action Rei's hair was black too.

Zachary Cooper

"MAN THAT MUSTVE BEEN A REALLY UGLY WOMAN PICASSO PAINTED THERE"?
Fuck I laffed.

i'm still trying to figure out how anyone could waifu any of the girls from NGE, they're all trash

Connor Hernandez

Rei's still blue there. Asuka's is black, though.

Isaac Davis

Anno's still wondering that, too.

Oliver Nelson
Oliver Nelson

Asuka represents my need to overcome adversity, which is why I waifu her, and Rei represents my escapism, which is why I hate her.

Love my fuckin' waifu.

Elijah Scott
Elijah Scott

Tbf Asuka is partially japanese. The red might just be used to reflect her wild personality. In-universe it's probably black.

They most likely used blue in the live action section to make it obvious as shit we were looking at rei, because dumb shits like

Don't realise that Rei is albino.

Owen Harris
Owen Harris

She's a freakass clone

Dylan Wood
Dylan Wood

Why the fuck do you assume this? Why can't it just be that their hair is these weird colors and that they aren't considered weird in-universe? I mean, I could claim that Shinji is actually a foot taller than he appears to be, but with no evidence you'd consider me retarded.

Bentley Wilson

Because Rei is a delicate flower we want to protect and eventually make her smile.

This is the most convoluted logic I've seen in a while. A good reminder of why I usually stay away from to NGE threads.

Asuka and Misato have black hair
Rei has blue
Confirmed.

Dominic Baker

I really like your explanation for how weird hair colours aren't supposed to be taken literal but you are just pulling stuff out of your ass at this point.

Also do you have any official source for your claim that Rei has white hair and is albino?
I always assumed it's just because she spend a big chunk of her life in the room underground being watched by scientists.

Justin Brooks
Justin Brooks

Its fucking anime man...get over it.

Jeremiah Nelson

In the original concept arts, all character's hair had natural colors because they wanted a realistic SF setting.

But they removed this idea because video games based on Eva were planned and at that time, you had to show a lot of colors to sell your game. It was the same for Eva-01 color, it was supposed to be white.

They live in a world where an alien blew the planet off its axis and killed half of humanity, said alien's freaky ass children attack every couple of weeks, and this ugly mug is humanity's best chance of survival.

Rei having blue hair does not register on the weird shit scale.

Julian Roberts
Julian Roberts

Thanks user that's exactly the kind of answer I wanted. I don't understand how user like can miss the point though

Samuel Collins
Samuel Collins

So in other words the blue hair represents a stylistic black like Misato's, not white.

Hudson Young
Hudson Young

No, in other words they changed the color.

Cooper Stewart

The answer you wanted was "they thought people would like blue hair more"? Really? That's something you needed to make a thread to figure out?

Logan Clark
Logan Clark

Almost all of you idiots are overthinking it. It's anime. Characters had weird hair colors for no good reason, both before this show and after this show. There is no canonical reason for it, there is no reason to care about at all. None of the people who designed these characters put this much thought into it.

Aiden Martin
Aiden Martin

Exactly, like in the original concept arts.
Also, a lot of asian girls have black hair with blue highlights like this.

Andrew Lopez

Wyatt Mitchell
Wyatt Mitchell

No, the blue hair represents blue hair. They just planned to make it black hair (representing black hair) at one point.

I swear to fuck, this is like talking to the Hibike fags who think that the straight interests are just there because the authors are afraid of stigma against lesbians or something.

John Jones

No guys, obviously the blue hair represents a penis. So does the black, purple, red, and white hair.

It's all penises.

bf Asuka is partially japanese.
asuka is like 1/4th japanese, asian characteristics in white asian mixes usually aren't that strong, and especially when there's only one grandparent in the genetic mix.

Ethan Collins

Are you implying that NGE invented anime hair? Because that'd be really dumb.

Housing:
Both cooks and clean the house.

Parental:
Still shit but 10 times better than Gendo.
At least she cares about the daughter.
Also she doesn't plan to fuck up the world like Gendo what wants to resurrect the fiancée by destroying the world.

Did everything wrong.
Shinji fucked up the world more than once due to lack of lucky and cristal ball to see the future traps, a crystal ball what everyone, including me, should have.

She is near to fuck up the world just by not doing her job as an key of the robot.
She have to do it.
Her feelings is the least of the least important.
It's her duty to be a tool for the fight, she must embrace it even if it means throw to trash her morality or her soul.

tl;dr She is 100% Female Shinji.

Asuka's pretty great desu. She seemed fun to hang out with, I don't get why Shinji was such a wierdo. I guess he couldn't take the bants, don't tell me you can't take the bants user.

Joshua Jackson
Joshua Jackson

oh shit eva took place in 2015 too. im pretty sure this wasnt a stylistic choice like most anime, i think he was trying to guess the cultural styles and trends of a society 20 years in the future. does Anno's genius know no bounds?

Jordan Fisher
Jordan Fisher

It's one of few prominent teen-angst shows involving one of the MCs in the cockpit of a giant robot doing battle with alien foes. It's pretty analogous.

Yukina isn't exactly Shinji, but they share a lot of traits. Shitty parents/upbringing. Forced into battle against their will. Inexperienced and weak. The only real difference honestly is that Yukina isn't the lone pilot and her one parental figure actually didn't try to force her in.

Daniel Ramirez

Yeah I really hate the unnatural hair/eye colors in animu. I think it has something to so with nips only having one hair color/eye (black) and they needed a way to make their characters more unique/iconic so they decided to use all these stupid colors.

DESU they should have just made more European characters who naturally have blue/green/teal eyes, all sorts of shade of red/blonde/brown/black hair.

Notice how Asuka has all natural pigmentation? She is the only European character in the series that I know about.

All these women at my college with neon hair are crazy SJWs. I don't think I've ever met a sane woman with unnatural hair colors.
