Is that an Eva Unit 01 pocket knife I see in that first picture? Awesome.

Well spotted, SPARTAN! That has to be a nod to Eva :]

Also liked the merchandise pictures! Can't believe how much of it there really is! Eva Doritos look awesome!

Um, no, it doesn't. It could be, since it's Gainax, it's a similar pose, and that was during Simon's "lolemo" phase.

However, that doesn't mean it's a reference, as both Misato and Yoko are abused by the studio for fanservice. It'd be like saying you could tell Gainax made He Is My Master from the way the characters' breasts jiggle so much.

He was actually In his semi-emulating Kamina, semi doing what ever nia says to him phase.

No it doesn't, but it's entirely possible Image

Oh god, you guys think EVERYTHING is a rip-off/reference to NGE. Although....this comparison DOES make sense. Simon and Shinji at the times were whiny boys and had a mother-like figure with curves bend over them and yell at them. Bah, who am I kidding? It's totally a reference.

We should at least consider the possibility considering that it's made by the same stuido and TTGL references NGE and other gainax works, Por ejemplo.....

Can't see sh*t, captain, so I C&P'd the URL into the address bar. Host it on imageshack.

Jung Freud was in that scene, you know. But not Noriko or Kazumi, which is weird. Maybe because Jung has the biggest bust of the trio, though they DID give Mahoro a nice set of knockers.

That pic of the Rei Ayanami offering table disturbs me. Probably because I gotta
believe someone somewhere in the world is doing that right now. presenting offerings then slicing their wrists to cover the offerings with blood all in the name of Ayanami.

anyone else think that surrealist Gendo looks vaguely like Beaker, the muppet?
Also, the stylized Zerogouki reminds me of the cover art to Appleseed.
