Kaworu x Shinji: 5 Reasons They Were Born to Meet Each Other
During Shinji's stay at NERV, he forms a friendship with Kaworu, who teaches him how to play the piano, and stargazes with him. Later when Shinji asked what had happened to the people he knew, Kaworu takes him to the ruins of Geofront and Tokyo-3, explaining that Shinji's awakening of Unit caused the Third Impact and further decimated the world.
He also reveals the aim of the ongoing Human Instrumentality Project: On the day of the operation, Shinji is unsure whether to follow Gendo's orders or Misato's plea to not pilot an Evangelion again, so Kaworu takes the choker off Shinji and wears it as a sign of trust. When Unit reaches Lilith's corpse, Kaworu realizes that both spears are similar and pleads with Shinji to not remove them. The awakened Unit flies out of the Geofront and rises into the sky, starting Fourth Impact.

In other media[ edit ] Kaworu makes appearances in various other media spin-offs of Neon Genesis Evangelionincluding various audio dramas and music CDs and Yoshiyuki Sadamoto 's adaptation of the anime. Here, Kaworu is portrayed as being ignorant of human emotions and taboos regarding social interaction and personal space, creating some comic relief.
His role is very similar to his anime counterpart's although some details have been altered, such as his friendship with Shinji not being immediate.
In these manga appearances, Kaworu is typically portrayed in a lighter tone than in the series, with focus placed on his relationship with Shinji.
Kaworu also appears in video games based on the Evangelion franchise, including the popular cross-over franchise Super Robot Wars. In the game's adaption of The End of Evangelion, Kaworu's spirit returns to take control of Unit and aid Shinji in battle and help rescue Rei from inside Lilith.
He also visits Nekki Basara and voices his approval of his music. He makes his final appearance during the final battle with Kaiser Ephes where he encourages the Eva pilots not give up. The bonus materials in volume nine of the English adaptation of the manga include an article written by editor Carl Gustav Horn comparing Kaworu to the character Satan in Mark Twain 's novella The Mysterious Stranger. Although Kaworu had a brief appearance for one episode in the original anime, he had a very prominent role in the rebuild movie, Evangelion: Official art also often pairs the two together, especially in the movie posters for 3.
Could this be because he is an Angel? As the relationship is satisfactory, concern over forming other relationships is unnecessary. Kaworu's route has a bad end but also a good end in which the two reciprocate each other's feelings and move in together.
Of course, in the fanbase there's also great controversy over the nature of Shinji and Kaworu's relationship. In the original Evangelion series, Shinji unwillingly destroyed the infected Eva 03 while knowing his friend Toji Suzuhara was the pilot. On the Rebuild version, it is Asuka one of his crushes who gets injured in the process. Amid the chaos and a declining world with a red sea, Shinji desperately needs a positive presence in his life.

You can not redo. So, she is some sort of substitute mother for Shinji. Yes, that sounds very strange. In the case of Kaworu, he is Angel Tabris and has genetical information from Angel Adam, making of Kaworu the first and last Angel at the same time.
In consequence, Kaworu Nagisa apparently knows a lot more about the Angels, Seele and the Eva project than he ever says, but that does not stop Kaworu from showing off his warm and kind personality. Kaworu meets Shinji on episode 24 and by the third Evangelion movie, Kaworu becomes the calm amid the storm.
One aspect that has always been representative of their relationship is music. Shinji plays the cello on the original version of the anime, but on the Rebuild version the piano plays a big part for him and Kaworu.
Because Shinji and Kaworu make each other happy Evangelion 3. You can not advance.
Although they manifest it in different ways, it is evident that Shinji and Kaworu are happy when they are together. We know that Shinji does not know how to communicate properly, but does Kaworu show impatience or annoyance? Still, despite of his multiple traumas, Shinji is capable of doing many things. Among such things, we can see that Shinji can make Kaworu happy, as Shinji reassuringly tells Kaworu that Shinji is glad to meet Kaworu or talk to him. Shinji talks about his life before being called to NERV and how he simply existed without minding others, and how Shinji used to hate his father.
It is on this scene where Kaworu tells him maybe he was born to meet him. The conversation was intimate but strange at the same time, but this shows how Shinji is able to open up and feel comfortable enough with Kaworu. By treating Shinji with respect, Kaworu is showing his ability to love.

Which leads us to the final reason… 5. Because Shinji and Kaworu change for the better Evangelion 3. Yet, Kaworu apparently decided to do something different. It appears as if meeting and bonding with Shinji played a key role in his change of mind. Thus, in the original version Kaworu requests Shinji to kill him, as humanity will not survive as long as he lives. As for the Rebuild version, Kaworu stops the Fourth impact before the killing device cuts his head, not without reassuring Shinji that it was the right thing to happen and that he was happy from having met him.
