Toji (OFF):“Maybe she’s got a bad personality?”
thewayneiac: Could you elaborate on how that applies to this cut? Are you saying that she's sitting apart because she considers her classmates useless?
NemZ: In the sense that they don't have a specific purpose like she has, yes. Even if Rei doesn't understand her feelings of loneliness I suspect she's built a solid rationalized defense against them all the same: a measure of contempt for these normal children, created without purpose or design.
