Snake Eater - Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater
Roxas, you’re you. We’re not the same. I wanted to tell you that.
You deserve as much as I do to be your own person. ”
because i still remember
I don’t know how you could interpret time looping and repeatedly dying for someone else while inbetween whispering sweet nothings like “I really was born to meet you.” and “It’s because I’m always thinking of you.” as anything but romantic. Or just the fact that he straight up says “I love you” in NGE. Anime Kaworu isn’t a newborn like manga Kaworu. He’s completely self aware of everything and himself and is always honest. So he knows what he’s saying.
But if that’s not enough for you, then how about how in the series, his “I think I was born to meet you” line using the romantic version of “meet” which is 逢.
Then there’s the fact that he’s been used to sell all romantic merchandise since day one. His lines (directed towards Shinji) are used on jewelry and engagement rings.
In pachinko, when he saves the girls, he just says “Good Luck” and other ones liners. Saving Shinji requires helping him stand up or even carry him bridal style. In one game, he looks at the moon and says “Isn’t the moonlight beautiful, Shinji-kun?”which is classical japanese literature meaning “I love you.” Shinji wasn’t even in the freaking scene yet that’s all Kaworu can think of.
In every single spin-off manga and game, he’s either reduced to the stereotypical gay shoujo prince character constantly trying to seduce Shinji or is portrayed as friendly but uninterested in others while being completely obsessed with Shinji. In NGE 2 (which Anno helped write), he falls immediately in love with Shinji. In the Kaworu Nagisa Raising Project, his only love option is Shinji, whereas Shinji’s, Rei’s, and Asuka’s games have multiple options including OCs and characters from other franchises.
It’s important to remember that Kaworu was always going to be the tragic love interest (since the conception stages when Shinji was going to be a girl).
I’m skipping a lot, but this is just an overview from a franchise that is nearly 20 years old.
