Ikari ShinjiAppears in:
“Neon Genesis Evangelion” franchiseCommonly interpreted as:
straight or gay, depending on the author and which part of fandom you ask.
But really: In the main storyline (including the anime, its manga adaptation and “End of Evangelion” movie) Shinji shows sexual attraction towards three female characters (Rei, Misato and Asuka) and romantic attraction towards two characters: Rei and Kaworu (boy). Also, while some spin-off comics interpret him as straight, in “Campus Apocalypse” manga he shares a very strong bond with Kaworu, while treating the girls in a friendly/sisterly way; this portrayal is repeated in alternate universe movie “The Rebuild of Evangelion 3.0: Quickening. You Can (Not) Redo”. Shinji is bisexual.
