Play to Remember

I have a new Fanfic out and posted to FFN as well as my Facebook page. Play to Remember is a story taking place about three years after the original series, where Shinji is admitted to a prestigious music school in Germany to study cello and where he hopes to leave EVA behind him once and for all. I...

My fan street cred goes all the way back to at least 1991, when I attended the one and only AnimeCon in Santa Clara. That was the convention sponsored by GAINAX and the UC Berkely anime club and basically the seedling that started nearly all of what we enjoy today as otakus. That being said, I actua...

Tokugawa Ieyasu knew about Seele. Hakone is the source of the Kuzuryū legend, where a nine-headed dragon settled down in Lake Ashi and demanded a virgin daughter for a sacrifice. Today the location of the Shino shrine to Kuzuryu is roughly where Tokyo-3 would be. And yes, Ieyasu Tokugawa was a patr...

Anno's entire current live-action production of Godzilla is just a ruse, he's actually filming the live-action segments of Final 3.0+1.0.

Hey, crazier things have happened, right?

Twenty-somethings will always be hot, though.


I'm 46 and I can say that is a true observation.

I like the idea of an audiobook, it's a relatively simple project and gives the story a bit more accessibility. It'd be even better with a decent voice cast behind it. There have been a few attempts at FanFic videos on Youtube, mostly just audio however ([url]https://www.youtube.com/resu...

I think it was unmanned at the time. IIRC they were testing the S2 engine, and hadn't gotten as far as a activation test yet. Heck, the thing might not even have had a soul at that point (by way of comparison I think Unit 03 only got its soul when it was transferred to Japan). An AU/sid...

Unfortunately no. 100% Newtype is only in Japanese. It is however an extremely loaded reference for the original TV series, with many sketches of EVAs, characters, backgrounds, etc. This book was out of print over a decade ago.

I received Side A today...from Amazon. I had pre-ordered both A and B and expected them around June, so this was a pleasant surprise. In case you've never seen scans of these books, yes they're quite good and well worth having if you're an EVA fan. There isn't necessarily much inform...

You wouldn't be the first to do a Mana-oriented fic, but definitely watch the playthroughs first on YouTube. If you have the time and patience for it, the actual Girlfriend of Steel game has a (fan-cracked) English version out there but considering that the game isn't all that "...

I was able to log in and start editing my older stuff. Thanks a lot, I really like the format this is in, especially the Author's Notes sections for each chapter. I've finished with Blue Rose #1 and will start on the next stories as time permits.

I was about to post asking if anyone knew a good site to post Eva Fics besides FFN, now you've answered my question.

I think way back I had one or two of the Blue Rose stories on EvaFics, if it's back up I can re-post these again there if that's cool with you.

Let's make a couple of assumptions about Misato and NERV in general: 1) NERV is perfectly aware that Misato was the last survivor of the Katsuragi Expedition. By extension NERV would also be aware that Misato's primary motivation would be revenge for her father and everyone else killed i...
