Description

<tt>I wonder when it started... the drifting...

It's like my mind and body have come apart, little by little... Whenever something sad or painful happens... It's like there's another me who watches it... like it's happening to someone else, and I'm thinking... "That's not me."

It's okay. I can live like that.

I'll lock my heart away deeper... I won't have to feel pain outside or inside... or the fear...

I WON'T HAVE TO FEEL ANYTHING AT ALL.</tt>


Shinji suffers from the "Hedgehog's Dilemma". This condition prevents him from getting close to other humans. Think of it this way: humans are all hedgehogs with their sharp needles. The more they want to get closer, the more they injure each other with their spines. This is how Shinji observes human relationships and is therefore very much withdrawn in personality.

Some may say Shinji is the epitome of a wimp, and even he himself believes that to be true. If told that he is worthless, he would most likely nod his head mutely in agreement. But this is due to years of having his spirit crushed by his many unfortunate circumstances.

(Sorry, we were all so excited about having group shots and shooting photos portraying Shinji's relationships with the characters that we didn't realize that Shinji didn't have enough solo shots! Haha!)
