Continued from the Gainax Cash Cow thread:

So, you want to impress your girlfriend with a necklace? Well, why on Earth would you wanna do that when you can just get a DSS Choker for yourself instead?

It blends especially well when worn with any standard Japanese school uniform. It can also hide nicely under your plug suit. (If you know what I mean. Amiright? :naughty: It’s sure to make your partner’s head spin!)

:rofl:
Oh god that's of such bad taste I can't even...

Except for cosplay I just can't see any occasion to wear that thing, not only for what it represent in the movie, but also because that device is not very beautiful, besides even the product above isn't very good : looks more like a dog collar to which they glued two cheap red plastic rectangles, which is probably exactly what they did.

And they sell that 44$! That's ten dollars more than the 3.0 Groundwork that's infinitely more interesting!

SHH! The fake character in this fictional scenario isn’t ready to come out of the closet yet.

I might buy it if it looked better. That one doesn't appeal to me at all.

Wondering why a black metal with some lining to prevent chafing wasn't used. There were replica Battle Royal collars I remember from 10 years ago that used metal.

That depends entirely on how well you can play the piano.

A Unit 01 wristwatch is being released (ANN link here). The problem is that it's almost $2500. It look pretty damn nice too.

The only eva watch I'd ever consider buying is one of the casio G-shock ones, you won't constantly worry about breaking it 'cause those things are tough and it doesn't cost a mint to wear on your wrist.
Among the people who use the Internet, many are obtuse. Because they are locked in their rooms, they hang on to that vision which is spreading across the world. But this does not go beyond mere ‘data’. Data without analysis [thinking], which makes you think that you know everything. This complacency is nothing but a trap. Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.

And so we arrive at demagogy. - Hideaki Anno, 1996

Wait, there are Eva fans out there that can blow this kind of $$$$ on a watch? I want to be one of them.

Honestly though, I first saw this watch on Instagram and that watch face did not strike me at all.

I don't have that kind of money, and if I did, I wouldn't spend it on a watch. And particularly not that watch. :facepalm:

However, I'm sure there's somebody out there that'll like it. Just 'cause I don't find it appealing doesn't mean it ain't good.

If I had that kind of money to put towards a watch, I'd want something legitimate, like an Omega Speedmaster, a Cartier Tank, or a Rolex Submariner.

Whenever something high end or pricey like this comes up the consideration is blow all that money on one item or spread it out over multiple, like 10 RAHs.

Bought a bunch of Eva crap from ACen. Most of it's NTE stuff, but still pretty happy with it. The three guests that visit my apartment a year will know of my true Eva love.

SPOILER: Show
Image
Sakura, Maya, Shinji. Really like these three, although Shinji's face doesn't look like Shinji's face. The Sakura figure looks great.

Image
NTE SEGA figures. I always wanted a Rei in entry plug figure. Bought the Shinji on a whim because he's my boy. Both figures are holding SDATs

Image
Cute Asuka button to go with a cute Rei button I bought last year.

Image
Keychains. The Nigouki was from one of those Eva@school random things. Got a Sahaquiel one last year; if I got another I would stop being an eva fan.

Image
Episode 19 shirt. Mostly only bought it because Ep. 19 was crucial in my eva fandom.

Image
Pretty program

Image
Mark. 09. It was either this or a Sangouki model which I kinda wish I woulda bought. Oh well, there's always next year. :kawaii:
I used to work in a factory and I was really happy because I could daydream all day -- I.C.
And thanks to EVA, I've started like myself and that has made me very happy. Mr. Anno, please keep working on EVA a lot more.
and thank you so much for everything!!

Is that Maya from her brief appearance in casual clothes during the Yamashita scene in 2.0?

Looks like it to me. That scene really helped to make the character a little more 3D (well, at least for that particular episode.)
