I guess you know you're obsessed with NGE when...you want to secretly amass all of humanity's resources to build armored Eldritch Abominations to fulfill an insane Assimilation Plot?

I know I'm obsessed with NGE when I say "Activate Dummy system", "Launch the N2 bomb" or "Deploy MP Evas" when I'm angry against someone, when I start laughing stupidly after seeing a store named "LCL", when I try to breathe into my orange juice, when I sing "A cruel Angel's thesis" without realising it for several minutes or when I buy orange stained sunglasses to look like Gendo.

EDIT : I was hesitating between two pairs of sandals. The first was dark green and the second was dark blue with orange touches. Guess what ? I took the second one because it looked exactly like Mark 06's color scheme. I hope the next time I won't have to choose between a red pair and a purple pair.

:huh: :uhh: :cringe: :facepalm:

The person who made this will be eaten by Unit 01. Slowly. I don't know how but I swear I'll make it happen. Heh, I guess that shows how obssessed I am too.

Don't worry though, you probably won't get banned. After all, we're Eva fans, we're used to depressing, weird and mind-raping things.

I know I'm obsessed with Eva when I eat like Unit 01 in ep 19 (including the horrible noises and a roar after finishing) and don't get why folks are disgusted, and when I'm agonizing over which 150$ figure I'm going to buy.

When you:
    - Dream about NGE.
    - Have posters about NGE in your room.
    - Have NGE wallpapers.
    - Have merchandising.
    - Have watched NGE more than one time.
    - Got frustrated for not understanding something, and can stop trying to find about it.

Yeah, merch spendings are a good indicator :P

You know, despite the fact that I absolutely LOVE Evangelion-- I've watched the anime at least twice and all of the movies-- I don't actually own any merchandise. I've never been interested in buying the manga since as far as I know it's mostly the same story as the anime except for the ending, and none of the spinoffs really piqued my interest either. I don't really like to invest in scale models, character figures, and the like, since I'm not keen on spending money on something just to have it sit there and collect dust. I don't even own the series on DVD (though I've really, really, been meaning to).
Life can seem a challenge. Life can seem impossible. It's never easy when so much is on the line.

Sort of same here, I'm interested in NGE and NTE, but thats about it. Even didn't care much for the additional story provided by the Evangelion games (the shit about FAR and all that, never liked it).

I own the manga, NGE on DVD and the NTE movies on Bluray.
And these stories already differ enough from each other, I really don't need additional spinoffs.

Merchandise? Hmm, I got a t-shirt with Evachu on it (eva-01 / pikachu mashup), thats about it.
I do have 2 handdrawn Evangelion pieces made by my mother hanging on my walls (eva-01 berserk bust shot, and eva-01 protecting eva-02 from harpies from manga).

But models? No, no interested at all. Especially not of characters.
I find having posters or models of sexy children in skintight suits a bit creepy.
Eva's and other machinery (like Wunder), maybe. If it weren't so bloody expensive.

Okay that is next level. Do I even want to know how ,any times you've watched the show to achieve that ability? xD

So you're saying that if any random "cicadas buzzing" moment is blindly played to you, you'll know which episode it is? :devil:

Now I watch it once every one or two years (maybe revisting some key scenes/episodes in between, especially EoE and 3.0, because they inspire me so much).
But as a teen? Boooff. I watched the crap out of it. It's burned into my brain.
I gotta say, this happens to me with all media I really love. I don't get bored if it. Second place is probably the Dragon Ball manga with how often I've revisited it.

So you're saying that if any random "cicadas buzzing" moment is blindly played to you, you'll know which episode it is?

I wish my ability was that strong lol.
Maybe I'll achieve that level some day.
I'll need some seconds to recognize the episode haha. But I'm worringly fast. I sure was a giant nerd (and still am).
