Uh, unless if we’re going to go by the interpretation that Puppy-kun and Rei have a Luteinizing/ Gonadotropin Hormone problem or something of the sort (given Rei’s development that’s a near impossibility) we might want to retcon their elastic heights base at 5cm more than what’s listed in the 1st page (well we don’t know about Kaworu so he can be as tall as we need) That might put the puppy closer to the normal range (He’d still lag quite a bit) but that way we don’t need to worry about medical isues.

Uh, well I’ve been dealing with biology and human Anatomy along with statistical stuff, so those things are kind of stuck in my system...and I’m done with exams (for now) so I’ve got time to waste

I was thinking along the lines of the kiss scene
, right before Asuka leaned in. They seem almost nose to nose.
Oh, I guess so, but the Kiss itself has Asuka leaning forward, but her head seemed to be on the same height or slightly above Shin-chan’s, and from the back shot she wasn’t leaning forward, she’d have to be a few inches taller for that. Asuka also seems notably larger than him during the kitchen preinstrumentalty scene…I guess it’s possible that her height is just as variable as her figure (she’s still taller than Shin-chan , it’s just a question of how much)…Gainax isn’t much for consistency is it?
Asuka is a year younger than Shinji,
been sure how much of a role that plays since, like many anime characters, their birthdays are just adoptions of those belonging to their Japanese voice actors.
Uh, I guess so, I still find it kind of funny that Asuka’s the total dominant in their relation even though she’s younger and a newcomer, and as far as physical traits go she seems more developed, even if she’s lankyer than Rei
Wait, why Japanese Girls? Asuka is only 1/4 Japanese, it's far more likley her European traits are what's "running the show" in that area.
Because other countries don’t have their comprehensive population statistics as accessible, I’m not sure but if I read those statistics right Japanese children tend to do most of their growth in a shorter time frame, so that might mean her growth is more gradual…
Never mind that though, at the minimum the stats mean that Asuka’s height would be within normal for the people she’s around while Shinji has some problems.

That could be...or he might just be keeping himself in shape for Yui...
