The Evangelion manga, which originally began appearing in Japan before the anime series even aired, was intended to be an official companion to the anime. Later on, however, in chapter 75 of the manga, Shinji admits that he was “attracted to” Kaworu all along, even though “a guy shouldnt like another guy like that.”
Does Kaworu kiss Shinji in the anime?
Kaworu takes the chance and kisses Shinji through CPR, who wakes up and pushes Kaworu for doing that.
Does Kaworu care about Shinji?
Kaworu seems both genuinely interested in Shinjis plight, as well as that of the Lilin. The last line is likely directly related to his decision to be killed at the end of the episode.
Why is Kaworu so nice to Shinji?
His relationship with Kaworu is also about him loving himself. He has to learn to accept the parts of himself he doesnt like, and get over his lack of confidence. Kaworu is brimming with confidence, which is probably a major reason Shinji feels attraction to him almost immediately.
