wonder if Shinji's going to grow up to be as tall as gendo, a six foot tall Shinji would tower over Asuka, to bad it doesn't give kyoko's height I know she's a minor character but still.

All this talk of "short", I'm only 5'4.
Growing up, they kept telling me another growth spurt was coming. It never came.... :shinchair:

I'm 6'1".

I would tower over the Eva cast.

Well, except Gendo and Fuyutsuki.

I'd just peer over them.

I'm 6'2"/6'3" so I could practically punt Rei or Kensuke like a football.

I bet I really could carry Rei in my pocket.

This pleases me in ways you can't imagine.

Not sure how much use it could be, but I suppose it's the little details like this that may come in handy.

And, for the record, I'm 6'2".

Thing is, the characters' heights are even more inconsistent than the Evangelions'.

Casting Necromancy.

At 179 cm (5'10 1/2", hopefully still growing), I'm taller than most of the cast, only shorter than Gendo and Fuyutsuki.

Has anyone thought of doing that height calculation thing with the Eva Q cast pic?

I think this is the right one.

Actual heights are provided for the cast in a similar 2.0 comparative group image. I assume that canonical numbers exist for the Q cast, as well, and we just have to wait for a 3.0 CRC (that may never come) in order to see them.

I find the heights of the cast of Eva unrealistic, until I saw this today I assumed that Misato would be slightly taller than me at 5'7(I'm 5'6 atm), and Shinji, Rei, Asuka and other students would be either the same height as me or a tad bit shorter, or the same as me when I was in 8th grade and 14 which was two years ago, which would've been 5'5. Man this post really twisted my view of the cast... I mean how the Evangelion's height constantly changes is one thing(and I calmly rest at 60m because it is between 40 and 80), but come on, Shinji, Rei, and Asuka being under 5ft is unrealistic.

Also that image you posted is way off. Gendo is one head taller than Shinji not two.

Things that are closer look larger. Perspective is a thing.

Shinji is a head shorter than Misato, who is a head shorter than Gendo. Transitive property, yo.

We are talking about less than a meter distance but still it's crystal clear he is shorter than Fuyutsuki who can barely fall in the tall category.

Even in this pic Fuyutsuki is taller than Gendo. Look at the shoulders.

Be like Chuckman and just visualize the cast at normal heights and ignore bizarre 'official' stats or filler text on a card you're not even supposed to be able to read.

Are you saying that Fuyutsuki isn't that tall?
