if you don't like this movie you are not human

Signs as movie quotes
  • Aries: Sometimes I don't think people realize how lonely it is to be a kid. Like... you don't matter.
  • Taurus: Sweetheart, you can't buy the necessities of life with cookies.
  • Gemini: It's called a sense of humor - you should get one - they're nice.
  • Cancer: If you were happy every day of your life you wouldn't be a human being. You'd be a game-show host.
  • Leo: The night of the fight, you may feel a slight sting. That's pride fucking with you. Fuck pride. Pride only hurts. It never helps. You fight through that shit.
  • Virgo: You can't change who people are without destroying who they were.
  • Libra: If the sky were to suddenly open up... there would be no law... there would be no rule. There would only be you and your memories... the choices you've made and the people you've touched.
  • Scorpio: It's mercy, compassion and forgiveness I lack. Not rationality.
  • Sagittarius: Well, it's a crazy, fucked up world! And we're all just barely floating along, waiting for somebody that can walk on water.
  • Capricorn: You think you're free? I'm free! You don't know what freedom is! I'm free! I can breathe! And you - you're gonna go choke on your average fuckin' mediocre life!
  • Aquarius: One thousand years from now, there won't be any guys and there won't be any girls, just wankers. Sounds all right to me.
  • Pisces: The first time I ever saw a box jellyfish, I was twelve. Our father took us to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. I never forgot what he said... That it was the most deadly creature on earth. To me it was just the most beautiful thing I'd ever seen.
  • Me: You are a disgusting human bean like leave your room or at least put deodorant on like please and you don't eat healthy - don't eat more cereal you will get fat even if you have an unnatural metabolism - and all you do is write gay fanfiction and go on Tumblr and watch TV shows and that Legion of the Black movie and that Harry Potter series and compare it to the books and listen to the same fucking bands on repeat like do some fucking exercise just fucking move like what the fuck is wrong with you
  • Me: That's my daily motivation done, now where are the Doritos...

“Well I don’t see why we have to watch The Hunchback of Notre Dame again. We literally watched it last week, Laf. Frollo gives me the fucking creeps. Can we just watch Brave or something?” The whine in Hercules’ tone made Alex’s lips twitch. They were in his house and he was trying to convince Lafayette to let him choose the movie. It was ridiculous.

The cushion beside him dipped. John had taken a seat to his left. He gave Alex a small smile. “Hi.”

Alex could feel himself blush. “Hello.” The warmth from his cheeks carried to the pit of his chest, settling there and warming his whole body.

ardate  asked:

Maybe this has been done already but I was thinking about how humans are (from what I know) the only creatures on Earth that shed tears when they cry. How would aliens react by seeing WATER coming out of our hecking EYES when we are sad?

The moment I read this I just imagined an alien and a human watching sad movies together and I had to draw it

I’d say that until they were told it was a Normal Human Thing aliens might be very worried about their human friend leaking water like isn’t that supposed to stay inside the human? 

Afterwards it might just be a weird thing to them.

anonymous asked:

I'm not really that talented as you but I love your comic! I read 78 chapters in 3 days and I wanted to ask if it's okay for me to draw a fanart of your Austen and Sunati? :> and send it to you, oh and also I have bad feelings about Always human 's ending ;-; please don't break my heart with it, I'm not saying it should end up like a Disney movie, but I'm not sure if I'm ready for a heart breaking ending, like I wish Austen and Sunati will be together forever 😭😳😓 I just love them so much

Firstly: Talent is a lie, art skills are 90% hard work and time and perseverance and finding good resources to help you learn. Don’t put yourself down, if you’re willing to put in the effort you will gain the art skills you want. You can do it, I believe in you :)

Secondly: Of course you can draw fanart I will love you if you draw fanart!
*beams*
You can post it to tumblr and tag it #always human or send an email to still walking north at gmail dot com if you don’t have tumblr :)

Thirdly: No heartbreaking ending, I promise! It won’t be a “and they got married and had three kids and retired in a cottage in the countryside” ending but definitely a happy-for-now ending :)

Anonymous said to alwayshumancomic:Can someone get a limb mod for a missing limb? Like if they were born w/o one? What about for paralyzed people?

I think that all and any body parts can be grown in a lab and attached (unless a person has an immune system that rejects the technology used to do the attaching, and even then as long as the immune system is very carefully dampened it’s probably still possible.) For paralyzed people it might depend on the cause, I don’t think I know enough about the biology here. But I imagine that someone could be placed in a healing vat for a few days while their spinal chord is rebuilt.

Also, there are probably some pretty cool mechanical prosthetic floating around, because naturalists will occasionally be in need of artificial limbs too :)

Anonymous said to alwayshumancomic:Hi Ari! I just wanted to say thank you for unintentionally giving me the advice I needed to hear today. Since the start of the comic I instantly felt a connection with Sunati though I wasn’t quite sure why, until after reading the update. Coincidentally, I’m also having trouble making a career choice that could see me moving away from friends and family. I’ve heard different pieces of advice from different people, but they were all things I had considered so they didn’t really help me. pt1
Anonymous said to alwayshumancomic:It wasn’t until seeing Austen ask Sunati if she ever made a decision without worrying about how it would affect others, that I realized I don’t think I ever have. It’s really put things into perspective for me. I may be a bit biased, but honestly, for all the fluffy and cathartic moments I think your comic is so incredibly important for a lot of people for many different reasons and I think that’s amazing. Also, happy non-dystopian sci-fi? How rare is that? Rebecca Sugar needs to read this. 

Oh, I’m so happy! I hope you figure out what it is you want to do. Good luck with whatever choice you make :)

(I’m currently living on a different continent to my parents, brother, and most of my friends, and working on Always Human has been very cathartic. I have a lot of feelings about the tyranny of distance.)

Thank you so much for the compliments, you’re too kind, I really am glad you like my silly comic :)
Someone please show Rebecca Sugar Always Human

Anonymous said to alwayshumancomic:Your comic is just sooooo great! I love the characters, I love the writing, I love the art, I love Austin and Sunati’s relationship, but you’re making me cry with this updates! Why are you doing this to me?

Thank you anon, your tears give me life!

I’m very happy you’re enjoying Always Human <3

I’d like to add, in light of recent conversations going around Tumblr, that is it perfectly all right to blog about what you don’t like. If you don’t understand a ship, or a character, or a show, and you want to post about it, feel free. Because in the end, it’s your blog and you can post whatever you want. 

But

Don’t tag it. Don’t tag your anti-ship stuff with the ship name. Don’t tag your character hate with the character name. Tag it anti ~ship~ or ~character~ hate. Let people who like the thing like it. 

And people who like something–as long as those who don’t aren’t being mean about it, leave them alone. This goes for morally grey characters, too. If you’re fascinated by their complexity, that’s cool. But if other fans of the show or movie or book find them less redeemable than you do… that doesn’t mean they don’t understand the character, or that they need to read the books again. It means they view the character differently than you do, and that needs to be okay. 

A brief history of Digimon fandom reactions, 2001 - present
  • ===2001===
  • Toei: Okay, guys, we know you're sad about 02 ending and all, and let's pretend that the... reaction... to the epilogue didn't happen, because NEW DIGIMON!
  • Fandom: YAY!
  • Toei: We're showing a group of kids who are actually Digimon fans like you! We're going to explore new, more mature themes and show a different digital world with a lot of new lore, but first we'll be starting off in the human world. This time, the Digimon are going to be actual characters and we're completely moving on from Adventure-
  • Fandom: Oh. Meh.
  • ===2002===
  • Toei: All right, so maybe you didn't like spending so much time in the human world. So we're going to set an entire season in the digiworld like the original with a smaller group of kids. Oh, and we're trying something new! This time the kids turn INTO Digimon, which seems a little weird, but it'll give us more time to focus on the human characters! Also, the digital world is one of the richest and most detailed we've ever develo-
  • Fandom: BLASPHEMY. Give us more Adventure! We don't WANT to try new things!
  • ===2005===
  • Toei: We have this movie called X-Evolution you might li-
  • Fandom: LOL NOPE
  • ===2006===
  • Toei: So Agumon-
  • Fandom: YAY
  • Toei: -has a new, slightly different design...
  • Fandom: BOO
  • Toei: We didn't even say anything about the plot! Anyway, here's our kickass new protagonist!
  • Masaru: Sup.
  • Fandom: WHERE ARE THE GOGGLES WE NEED GOGGLES BECAUSE THE QUALITY OF THE SHOW DEPENDS ON IT SOMEHOW
  • ===2010===
  • Toei: (It's been four years, maybe they've calmed down by this point.) We're trying Digimon again! It's got a bunch of continuity references! We got all your death threats so the protagonist has goggles again! The Digimon are fully-fledged characters, and the show is written by one of the top shonen writers of this decade! It's a new chapter in Digimon history! ...guys? Where'd the fandom go?
  • *sound of crickets chirping*
  • Toei: Oh come ON!
  • ===2014===
  • Toei: *sigh*
  • Toei: Hey guys... we're making a third season of Adventure.
  • Fandom: OH MY GOD THIS IS AMAZING WHERE HAS DIGIMON BEEN ALL THIS TIME WE MISSED WATCHING IT SO MUCH WHEN IT WAS COMPLETELY GONE ALL THESE YEARS WITHOUT SO MUCH AS A TRACE
  • Toei: *reaches for hard liquor*

A BIGASS FUCKING RANT (DON'T READ IF YOU DON'T SHIP SASUNARU/NARUSASU BECAUSE YOU WILL LIKELY BE VERY FUCKING OFFENDED)

Guys, I’m so shaken up over this new movie and chapter 700. I’m absolutely livid at kishi for queer-baiting his fans with all this sasunaru/narusasu, just to take it away and make everything he’s written so far worthless. I thought that this manga was going to be different from the others. The whole series has pointed to sasunaru/narusasu, yet he’s going to end it in naruhina because shonen doesn’t have the balls to have two gay men be the main characters. I’ve definitely just lost faith in humanity. This has practically ruined naruto for me. My life for the past five fucking years has been dedicated to naruto. I practically shipped sasunaru/narusasu ever since I started reading the manga and watching the anime back in 2009. This whole thing has been a major fucking slap in the face for me. I was expecting them to AT LEAST have an open-ending, but no, let’s just ruin everything with a fucking love story between a girl that naruto has never showed interest in and a guy that cares more about his “best friend” than anything in the world (who is obviously fucking gay for said “best friend”). This is complete bullshit. Also, let’s not forget that the majority of Japanese fans wanted sasunaru/narusasu. I understand that he is the author and that he can do what he wants, but I feel like my fucking heart has been ripped out because of how obviously canon sasunaru/narusasu was. I don’t even know if I’m going to watch the new movie. I may not even read chapter 700. I don’t know if Masashi Kishimoto just wrote the manga to be sasunaru/narusasu unconsciously and meant for it to be hetero in the end, or if he’s just doing what his anime team and editor wanted him to do. I mean, the english voice actors of both naruto and sasuke ship sasunaru/narusasu, and fucking naruto’s and sasuke’s japanese voice actors ship it as well! I swear to god if this thing ends in naruhina I’m going to be a fucking angry bitch for the rest of my life. I don’t think you guys understand how fucking anxious and upset this has made me. I can’t sleep, I can’t eat, and I can’t even fucking sit still. I’ve been working on this post for a fucking hour because I have to keep stopping and just breathe to myself. There is so much fucking evidence of sasunaru/narusasu that I can’t even begin fathom why you would ship anything else. They were MEANT TO BE TOGETHER. I swear to god, kishi better be fucking trolling everyone about this new movie and last chapter or I’m going to be incredibly spiteful towards him. He probably wouldn’t even care if he knew though since he completely fucking ignored how large the sasunaru/narusasu fan base is. If kishi is a smart man, like I thought he was, he wouldn’t do this to his life’s work. Another thing, I ALWAYS ship the obvious pairing in an anime or manga. It’s always been that way. Call me unimaginative or whatever. Anyways, I never believed that sasuaru/narusasu was a crack ship. It was, and is, the absolute most obvious pairing to me. Naruto is what introduced me to yaoi for fucking crying out loud. I have never been more disappointed and angry than I am now. If kishi isn’t trolling us, he just lost a very loyal naruto fan because I’m going to be fucking out of this fandom. I’ll still ship sasunaru/narusasu but I’m no longer going to call myself a naruto fan. Sometimes I think to myself, maybe naruto really was just trying to get his friend back, but then I talk to people outside of the manga for their point of view and they see it as gay also. My best friend, who was a big naruto fan in 2009 but got bored with it, talked to me about naruto last night because of how upset I was. I told her what was going on and she knows enough about naruto to understand the things I’m talking about and the characters personalities enough to give me an informed opinion. But she also isn’t into naruto anymore so she could give me a very OBJECTIVE opinion as well. She told me that naruhina and sasusaku make absolutely no fucking sense. She said that kishimoto was just straight up queerbaiting everyone and that he should’ve left it as an open ending. And let me tell you, my friend is very honest and she would not lie to me to spare my feelings. That’s how our friendship is. She told me that from the outside looking in sasuke and naruto appear to be extremely gay for each other. She doesn’t ship sasunaru/narusasu and even she can see it. If I had known that kishi was going to do this, I wouldn’t have gotten into this fucking ship in the first place. I literally could NOT see naruhina and sasusaku becoming canon. I put ALL of my faith into sasunaru/narusasu. I’m not going to put all my hopes up for kishi trolling us, because I don’t think he is, but on the VERY SLIM chance that he is, everyone in the naruto fandom can come and send me hate and call me a fucking bitch because I will definitely deserve it after the things I said about kishi. I would love for everyone to come to me and tell me about how fucking wrong I was for thinking how naruhina was going to happen and how bad it was for doubting kishi. Kishimoto, please don’t ruin everything you’ve worked for. Please.

Anyways, I’m sorry if this offended anyone, but this is really how I feel about it. As you can tell, I am VERY emotionally invested into naruto. If you want to send me hate about this rant, then do so, but it won’t stop me from feeling this way.

Fans: What are you most afraid of?
  • SIMS: I'm most afraid of high and loud voices and anything like that..
  • 5Zic: Aish, not that!
  • SIMS: But I do hate it!
  • 5Zic: Pick something else, another things. Something that you're really afraid of.
  • SIMS: De-devil?
  • 5Zic: (-____-;;)
  • SIMS: What am I afraid of? Uh.. ghost?
  • Fans: Eh?
  • 5Zic: He's sometimes..
  • SIMS: I'm afraid of something that doesn't have a physical form.
  • 5Zic: Sometimes at night, when we were talking and chatting, Jongsu would suddenly be possessed and he'd act weirdly like a ghost. (Laughs)
  • Fans: Can't we see it? (Giggling)
  • 5Zic: I think he'll soon do it. (Laughs)
  • SIMS: (Laughs)
  • 5Zic: (To Kangnam) Hyung, do you have anything that you're afraid of?
  • Kangnam: Hmmm.. What is it? My mom.
  • Fans: (Laugh)
  • Kangnam: It's no kidding. She even made the frypan becoming rusty. My mom is really no kidding, she's the one that I'm most afraid of.
  • Cream: For me.. I'm afraid of anything that is not people. Bugs, you know? Ants, any kinds of insects and bugs. If those kind of things can be gone I'd be really happy.
  • Kangnam: (To 5Zic) You? You don't have anything you're afraid of?
  • 5Zic: Well.. Human is something that I'm most afraid of.
  • Fans: (Gasping)
  • SIMS: He's pretending to be cool!
  • Fans: (Laugh)
  • Kangnam: He's most afraid of ghost, seriously. Something like ghost from movies.
  • SIMS: Yes, he's afraid of ghost! Back then, Kangnam hyung and I used to play pranks on him by pretending to be ghost. He'd be so afraid and panicked because of that. It's really like that! His reaction is no kidding, it's the best!
  • 5Zic: (Laughs)
  • Kangnam: He'll be like, "Aaaaa!" (Flailing his arms to copy 5Zic's reaction). Like this!
  • SIMS: He'd also have his eyes opened really wide! It's really no kidding.
  • 5Zic: (Embarrassed laughs)
  • Kangnam: He'll definitely show you all his reaction later. You have to see it.
  • 5Zic: (To fans) Do you know that movie The Conjuring?
  • Fans: Yes!
  • 5Zic: So SIMS and I were watching that movie on my laptop, and whenever something's scary popped out I'll cover my face with my hands like this. (Posing like how people would normally cover their face) But then I saw Jongsu and he covered his face like this. (Posing with his hands upside down)
  • Kangnam: (Laughs) He's so afraid that he did it like that.
  • SIMS: That movie is really scary.

I’ve seen comments about how Wonder Woman is the best part in BvS (no arguments here) and that some people would have preferred it if she had been given more screen time so that “they could have cut out the useless Lois sub-plot”.

Ha. Hahahahahahaha. Haa…

Ya know, I cannot, for the life of me, figure out why people would say this. Why would people want more of Wonder Woman, an extended cameo character who was essential in bringing down the Third Act villain, at the cost of Lois, a main character who’s investigative skills shown throughout the movie led to her to evidence putting Luthor in jail, along with her being the reason Batman doesn’t kill Superman for triggering him with his mother’s name? Why would people want more of the physically active Wonder Woman, a woman who spends most of her screen time fighting, over Lois, the only truly average hero in this film, who does her job investigating and contributing to the main plot? Are these people saying that in order to merit screen time, Lois should have been kicking ass and taking names instead of acting like a journalist? Are they saying that by virtue of needing saving from gunpoint like a regular person, Lois doesn’t merit the screen time she gets? Hmm, watch out. We’re straying dangerously close to the Strong Female Character, where now it’s the audience that confuses punching things as superior character action.

Look, maybe it’s not so much a desire to cut Lois out of the movie she’s the female lead of. Maybe people just really wanted to see more of Wonder Woman because we only got little glimpses of who she is as a character. You’re not alone, my friends: I, along with many others, also want more Wonder Woman to grace my movie screen. Congrats! Lucky for all of us there’s a Wonder Woman movie coming out in June 2017! All your questions should be answered then. We didn’t have to cut anyone’s screen time because most of it will now belong to Wonder Woman. Everyone wins.

But then there are people that didn’t like Lois by virtue of her being human. By virtue of her needing saving in the impossible situations she finds herself in. And last time I checked, it’s not really damseling if concrete pillars fall on top of you; after that it’s just needing help. Kinda like when a Kyrptonian abomination is about to blast you with its eyes and you’re stuck in your jet: I think some super Amazonian help is warranted there too, don’t ya think?

So to those people: y'all can sit down. Lois isn’t going anywhere. Maybe you should figure out why seeing a human act like a human in these superhero movies bothers you so much, or why you feel the need to pit one woman’s screen time against another’s.

anonymous asked:

can you explain kaworu and shinji's relationship to me ;w;? I've watched the anime and the movies and I just feel so confused when it comes to Kaworu in general. Like, did he used to be a human? If so, how did he become an angel? Does he time travel? If so, has he been with Shinji more times than one? Why does he commit #suicide? I'm just so confused; the anime and the movies were so vague on their relationship so i was wondering if u knew. you don't have to answer either uwu thank you

HDhdhfgfsa I’ll try to make this as easy to understand as possible while explaining why it is what it is - and I hope anyone reading this can correct me if I’m wrong anywhere.

It seems as if the anime and Rebuild were vague on the topic of Shinji and Kaworu’s relationship but … if anything I feel like they couldn’t have been any more explicit in their portrayal of them without… going places.. ??uhH haha.
To put it simply, they both love each other—ARE IN LOVE WITH EACH OTHER HEYY. (if you wanna see it platonically.., fine I won’t argue but the point is Kaworu And Shinji Love Each Other) And not without reason—though they come off as complete opposites they are both very alike. ( Here we’re talking about the TV series and Rebuild, but Kaworu’s appearance in the manga makes it way more obvious and more realistic(??) to me at least, and I’ll be referencing some stuff from there )

For Shinji, Kaworu is the first to ever provide him with unconditional love and acceptance—even to say to him “I love you” (And additionally, to fulfill his selfish and ultimately unrealistic needs regarding others). If you watched End of Evangelion, both Rei and Kaworu appear to Shinji- from himself, as what they mean to him. Rei was “the hope that people will one day be able to understand each other”, Kaworu? “The words ‘I love you’”. Unlike everyone else in the series Kaworu asks nothing of Shinji. He’s not blind to Shinji’s flaws either; he accepts them. Kaworu provides him with a safe and nurturing relationship, however brief it is, and even gives Shinji words to help him towards growth. In the series Shinji allows him to come close and doesn’t protest when Kaworu lays his hand upon Shinji’s, when just the episode prior he’d refused Misato on the spot. Shinji stays the night with Kaworu instead of at home with Misato (a choice all his own as opposed to Misato’s taking him in) and opens up to Kaworu without receiving any reproach or admonishment for his feelings.
In Rebuild Kaworu was the only one to treat him with kindness following 2.0 and the Near Third Impact. Kaworu is never rough with him, never raises his voice, never treats him coldly, doesn’t hate Shinji despite knowing he was the cause of everything.
As they are boys I’d say it was easier on them both too.. There’s an absence of sexual tension/vibes?? between them that you really get from watching Shinji’s interactions with the other girls which probably helps him feel safer/more comfortable around Kaworu, who in turn has an easier time approaching him.
In either the anime or Rebuild, their relationship is to the point where Shinji is absolutely devastated upon his death—just look at EoE where Misato literally has to drag him along, 3.0 where Shinji remains clinging to the entry plug wall separating him from Kaworu after his death, and Asuka again dragging him along after getting him out of there. Kaworu is what brought him up and kept him going at the lowest point of his life (a parallel with Gendo and Yui?) and incidentally, with him gone Shinji virtually loses the will to live.

For Kaworu, Shinji is the same. Up until his introduction at NERV Kaworu was living a pretty crap life under SEELE’s watch—given that he was created for a specific purpose it’s safe to assume he’s been treated as nothing but a tool and that he lives a life similar to Rei’s prior to her interactions with Shinji. ((ooOO) It’s evident that everyone who meets Kaworu after his release to NERV is wary and distrusting of him (Misato, even Rei is uncomfortable upon seeing him), all except Shinji. In the series Shinji desires his company and waits for him after their tests. When told that Kaworu is an Angel Shinji initially refuses to believe it because of course it would mean Kaworu’s death. Shinji’s acceptance of Kaworu is more prevalent in Rebuild. He doesn’t question Kaworu for not needing a hazmat suit, his ability to remove the DSS choker just like that even after Shinji had struggled to take it off. When Kaworu explains himself as the First Angel cast down to the Thirteenth Shinji says nothing about it.
If you think about it even Kaworu acts selfishly—why else would he continue associating with Shinji if he knew they would have to fight later on? He desires Shinji’s company as much as Shinji desired his. Shinji shows him real kindness when he’d received none ( This point is driven harder in the manga I think with the parallel of the cat ), at the end by granting him his final wish, his one freedom.
“I was probably born to meet you” “I really was born to meet you” Suddenly it’s as if Kaworu’s purpose for existing isn’t towards Human Instrumentality, but for Shinji’s sake. Kaworu chooses this for himself, deciding against the fate that SEELE had written for him. Shinji provided Kaworu with the things he’d never known, kindness and companionship in the form of a very normal relationship (something you aren’t exactly given when you’re existing as an instrument towards humanity’s demise with no family or close relations of any kind). If you take Rebuild as a continuity then what you see is a Kaworu that has taken it upon himself to give Shinji happiness, to achieve a world where Shinji (and perhaps even himself? together) can be happy.
((EDIT; Adding the line “you are worthy of my empathy/sympathy” whichever translation you’re going with—perhaps Kaworu says this and can understand Shinji’s feelings so well because they are so alike.))
Of course there are people who will debate on Shinji’s feelings for Kaworu, but you can’t deny Shinji’s love when he explicitly states it himself at the end of ep24, “I loved him too”. (He says this in the manga as well).

Also„ I wanna say that their first meeting in ep24, Shinji is described as being “enchanted by Kaworu’s smile” so it’s almost like a “love at first sight” thing haha. Kaworu is polite to him during that first conversation— hence the “I don’t mean to be rude, but you’re rather ignorant of your own position” and gives off this immediate sense of warmth by telling Shinji he may simply call him by “Kaworu” rather than Nagisa-kun, if you’re aware of the familiarity/relationship implications by that.

By having Kaworu say “I love you”, and Shinji returning the sentiment (a little too late) they threw it out there and made the intended nature of their relationship as clear as possible, just like that. What’s funny is the majority of Western fans deny the whole meaning of it and everythiNG, “wO W Man TO tAl BrOS so PlATOniC hAHAHa” while the people behind Evangelion openly confirm and accept it lmao (see: various interviews and all the official merchandise ayyy)

BUT. I’d also like to add that Shinji IS very bisexual. His love and attraction towards Kaworu doesn’t erase the fact that Shinji is sexually attracted to the other girls (most visible with Asuka).

AND to answer your specific questions: (already I apologize to you SO MUCH for this)

Kaworu isn’t human… but at the same time, is. Since his birth he’s been an Angel with the body of a human. His DNA comes from both Adam and an unknown human donor, and he possesses Adam’s soul. So technically .. Kaworu IS Adam, the First Angel. But keep in mind that Adam is described as the “first human” and Angels as “humans who threw away their form” or smth like that (I just rewatched the series like. last week so hopefully I’m remembering this right). EVAs are called “artificial humans” and EVAs originate from Adam. So… Kaworu is human too, but not exactly in our sense of “human”.. I think aagjuhgf.

No one can say for sure?? that he “time travels” (loops) but it’s a widely believed theory, and it sure looks that way just from watching Rebuild after the original TV series—Kaworu knows about Shinji even before meeting him, proclaims that he will make him happy “this time”, and before his death in 3.0 he says “We’ll meet again, Shinji-kun”. If you go along with the timeloop theory then yes, he has been with Shinji multiple times.
Uhhgmfm I’m not good at all with Eva theories but here’s another post that can give you a rundown of it and hopefully help explain if you’re willing to read/are that invested in finding out ahaha ..

Kaworu doesn’t commit suicide (but if you’ve read the ep24 drafts there is the implication that he attempted it numerous times)— he requests to be killed in the TV series, and allows it in Rebuild. In the series he states that life and death are of equal value to him, meaning that he doesn’t care either way—but he also tells Shinji that he gave his life meaning. As someone who already held a fascination for humans and doesn’t want to see them perish, Kaworu is willing to die for Shinji- to allow Shinji to live on in this world. ..You could say Shinji gives his death meaning as well.
However Kaworu isn’t as all-knowing as he comes off; he’s actually rather naive. He put too much faith in people and, without a full understanding of the situation believed that if he died a Third Impact would be out of question (this is where EoE comes in).
In Rebuild, Kaworu takes the DSS choker from Shinji to both gain his trust and save his life. Kaworu believed that if worse came to worst (the start of another Impact) at least he would be the one to die and avert the catastrophe. Again the whole life=death thing, as long as Shinji and the rest of humanity can live on, he’s okay with it. What Kaworu didn’t realize was Unit 13’s double entry system existed to ensure that should one pilot die, the other could still act as a trigger. ( This is why Fourth Impact isn’t stopped until Mari ejects Shinji’s entry plug. Later with Gendo and Fuyutsuki you’ll come to understand that they’d anticipated Kaworu’s actions and intended for him to lose his life ).

Aaaand… I believe that’s all.
Yes I am SO sorry you weren’t expecting an essay like this most likely but you said “explain relationship” so I.. took that to heart maybe um. But I do! appreciate the ask since it forced me to finally sit down and really think about them lmao OBVIOUSLY I’M Too invested in this series I should take up.. knitting .. or smth lmfao but I hope this clears some things up for you ! If not please feel free to ask more questions and I’ll do my best to answer (if this was confusing I’ll even rewrite it as simpler bulletpoint statements if you want)… Ah but please remember that this is also my own personal gathering as well so there might be incorrect stuff here.

..Evangelion is really something isn’t it haha

This is what 'representation' looks like nowadays.
  • The Media: Hey, we have a brown face in our new thing! Come see our new thing!
  • The Media: Oh, what's that? You want character development, and a story arc? You want a meaningful backstory and personal point of view so people can be emotionally invested in the character? You want depth, competency and consistency? You want a unique fully developed character and not a prop for the white character to lean on? You want a non-stereotypical human being with thoughts, feelings and opinions that are valid and integral to the story?
  • The Media: Nope, sorry. Fresh out. We used all that up with the white characters. My bad. But don't worry, we'll still plaster this character's face on everything to give the illusion that they are way more significant than they actually are. Yay, diversity! Watch our new thing!
