Yeah. You read right. This is for everything that doesn't have anything to do with Eva.

Hey everyone, I am a huge fangirl of Eva and so decided to bite the bullet and join this site, despite the fact that I've heard a couple bad things about this place. I like Eva too damn much! :) It helped me get through a very rough period in my life, so I have much respect for Anno, GAINAX & so on. I greatly identify with Shinji, and really don't get the massive hate folks have for him. He's one of my favourite fictional characters of all time. Anyway, I hope I will have a good time at Eva Geeks!

If you identify with Shinji and don't get the hate people have for him you'll probably fit in well here, as we've little tolerance for the latter. Welcome!

I bet that anything bad you heard about us happened in the past, and was in some way removed.

Also as Bagherra said, we all love Shinji, so don't be afraid to say you do too.

A big welcome to all of the newcomers. It's nice to meet you. ^_^
Someday I hope that we'll be reunited if that is what's destined to be. Perhaps we'll discover that elusive bible. And then we will finally be free!

Huehue thanks bruv.

As to my unannounced absence; I've just been exploring a lot of new shows, books, and music lately, the staple of Evangelion was always there but somewhat faintly in the background. Recently I've found myself drawn back into it for the same reasons I loved it in the first place; ambiguity and reflection. Most of it was brought on by DS3 which I enjoyed immensely. They both share the same murkiness of understanding.

I'll always be attracted to such opaque stories I suppose. Anyway, really wanna watch the series again but not sure how I should do it, the last five times has just been me and maybe my girlfriend, I feel like it'd be fun to do it with a whole bunch of mates and watch them flip their shiz.

Hello!

Evangelion is very a important, intimate, and personal work to me. Shinji's struggle with anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, etc. was incredible relatable and I believe those final episodes of the TV show, helped me deal with those things too. And the show might have my favorite ending of any work because of that. Second is End of Evangelion. I find it incredibly fascinating in terms of it being a response to the fandom, especially since the letters are actually in the movie itself. I think it being critical of its audience (though Shinji as audience surrogate) is very meaningful, especially because it's from otaku to otaku instead of a outside perspective with little understanding. With the "lifestyle" and hobbies, I feel it is extra necessary to always keep that sense of self awareness.

In terms of characters, I'd say I'm most fond of Asuka, Misato, and Kaworu.

If you couldn't already guess, my username is in reference to a line in End of Evangelion. The scene it was in just really stuck with me. Visually, it was very striking seeing Shinji's objectification of the women in his life though the camera angles and the three eventually blending in together in his eyes, all the while they're calling him out for exactly that kind of thing. Figured my username should be something Eva related and significant to me.

Lately, I've been getting into model kits as a hobby, starting with Gunpla (Gundam plastic models). I'm curious about the Evangelion model kits, especially in finding some of Unit 02 to display. I figure this also might be a good place to do my research to see which ones to buy and talk about them afterwards.

I have an interest in some of the table top RPGs based on Evangelion like AdEva and especially Bliss Stage, though I haven't had the opportunity to play either yet. Not sure if this is the place for that, but getting a campaign/group organized for one of those would be wonderful. Or at least it might be cool to talk about the games.

Anyway, I guess I need to mention a little bit about myself outside of Eva. I'm a trans woman. I have autism, OCD, and ADHD. I'm in a loving relational. My favorite anime is Revolutionary Girl Utena and I'm also fond of other mecha anime outside of Eva such as Gunbuster, Getter Robo, Mazinger Z, and especially the Gundam franchise. My other hobbies outside of anime include theater, tabletop roleplaying games, video games (especially horror and aventure games), manga, music, model building, and research.

So, yeah, I'm happy to meet you all and I'm really hoping to enjoy my stay.

Whats up fam,

The name is cunning linguist. Eva and me go back a long time, ever since it aired on adult swim that one spring break, when I was a teenage weeb, young, dumb and full of cum (still am). In my late night stupor I decided to look up that one cute girl with short black hair, which I discovered was actually Shinji. Thus began a very strange relationship...which ended up here. I figured I could have fun and pal around with my fellow eva geeks, as well as get some critiques for my fanart. You shouldn't take me too seriously; I sure don't.

See you space cowboys.

Hi everyone!

Today I decided to do an account here, I've been lurking recently and I thought it would be a nice idea since there are so many good threads and now I have a kind of obsession with NGE. ^_^

P.S: I'm not a native speaker and I'm still improving my English skills, sorry if I make mistakes. I'll do my best.
Morning... The start of today... The start of an unpleasant day... I don't like it.

Oh, so here's this thread hidden.

Well, uhm, hi. I'm bad in formal introductions, so I'll just say I'm native speaker of the most complicated world language except Navajo. The only drawback of my mother tongue is lack of articles, so please don't bully if I misplace them from time to time. I'm interested mostly in space exploration and counter wargames; I also like to fanwank without restrictions. Due to health issues I have recently much free time, which I use mostly to learn coding (currently in Ruby and JavaScript).

I lurk you since few years and I've registered to get access to that hidden subforum (sorry for necroposting).

Stronger than love and with me it will be

Hello

I'm new. I like Aviation, History Science and tech in general, plus a little philosophy. My fav shows are Digimon and Serial Experiments Lain. Sometimes I watch Eva because its vaguely related to that. I have Schizotypal disorder and am a little bit odd, don't take it personal its not meant to be. I run a lot too. umm I think thats it?
