Gendo: I see. You’re right. Yui reveals to Gendo that she believes anyone can find Heaven ; they must have the will to survive and they will attain happiness. This impression is passed on to Shinji, first in his come back to the physical world in Episode 20, and late in his choice to be “ alive ” ( existing as human in physical kind with an AT Field ) rather than accept Instrumentality. [ 6 ] Yui ‘s impression may besides be exemplified in her amatory kinship with Gendo, however Gendo ‘s desire to be associated with Seele raised questions concerning whether he was in truth in sleep together with Yui or whether he was using her to get closer to SEELE. The fact that his every action for the next ten was made in pastime of reuniting with Yui suggests he was not just using her ; conversely, since she kept some of her agenda unavowed from Gendo, she may in a sense have been using him.

It ‘s just that no one knows it. ” [ 7 ] Yui has her own agenda, different from Seele ‘s, and ultimately different from Gendo ‘s angstrom well. a lot, but not all of her agenda is presented in the series.
