"On the floor of the midbrain is the ventral segmental system, that neurobiologists call region A10. Cells soaked in dopamine, certain emotions are processed here: such as the thoughts of two lovers - or a parent and a child. And it is the synchronization of the threads and bundles of A10 that splice pilot and Eva together; to become one entity, to fight. In other words, the power of love drives this weapon of mass destruction." -Yoshiyuki Sadamoto

It's funnier in hindsight, but Asuka correctly guesses the Angels are aliens in The Day Tokyo-3 Stood Still. Misato called them Aliens in the first two or three episodes too, iirc.

Do you guys remember when Eva-01 was chasing Jet Alone in an epic stance and the Jet Alone was just like wiggly speed-walk?

As a sub kind of guy, the whole dub (mostly EoE) is kinda funny to me, and the additional sound effects they add were funny too, like where Misato kills some guy and you heard that stock liquid sound effect, and the flamethrower scene, as if the guy stopped burning when the flamer guy stopped firing, just to continue screaming after the flamer starts firing again...

Oddly i found Black Hyuga to be not so funny...

Not sure if these moments were supposed to be funny but I laughed out loud the two times Ritsuko was slapped by Misato.

Let's see...

The part where Unit 01 was eating Zeruel, and stopped midway to make sure nothing was trying to sneak up on it. You're an eva! You don't have any natural predators!

And in the rebuild... Mari. Just... Mari. I love her, but she is the worst eva pilot I have ever seen. She's destroyed more evas than angels, and they were evas that she was piloting!

That's true!
Maybe Shogouki was shy and simply was checking that no one saw it, like when you're eating in class but you're not allowed to (?)

I'm pretty sure that I've seen "Bad luck Bryan" memes but with Eva faces. :lol:

*Exactly that. The dubs. Both the English one and especially the Spain Spanish dub. When you're used to watching everything in its native tongue, listening to the dubbed versions is like instantly turning whatever series/movie into a ridiculous parody of itself. For me, dubs = an instant fit of the giggles, no matter the episode or how serious the scene.

I laugh the most at parts where they're dealing with hard to translate Japanese idioms or talking about something that's deeply rooted in the Japanese culture... and speaking English!! It cracks me up every time though I can't think of any concrete examples right now. Dubs always sound so wrong to me, just pick any random part.

Yes, I'm a language nazi. I know. Got frustrated watching The girl with the dragon tattoo because I don't understand Swedish and had to rely on subs.

* All the scenes where there are exceptionally long silences like... say Rei and Asuka in the elevator (an NGE classic) and many others where you actually had to go check the VCR hadn's stopped working while watching them as a kid still make me chuckle even now.

* Rei's general lack of enthusiasm. I chuckle 90% of the times she's on screen as a civilian, especially if she goes "hai" or "ryoukai" like a mindless automaton. I don't care how serious her background is. I can't help to find that kind of response funny. Asimov depicts robots with more will to live.

Gosh, I've just realized how much I laugh while watching this rather serious anime (not that I don't appreciate the plot). I just grew up watching it on TV and it was on for like 6 years, so it evokes memories of when I was a carefree 12 year old... all the reruns made me immune to some of its seriousness. :S Well, at any rate, it's better than getting all grim, I guess. *shrugs*

^ As someone who seriously enjoys both subs and dubs of most things i can say that yeah the english dub of eva is bad enough that its funny but not to the extent where it hurts my ears (ring dub im looking at you....). but i will always and i mean always hate tiffany grants shit tier Asuka voice, THAT actually does hurt my ears.

As "that guy" who always analyzes the physics and whatnot, I can't help but laugh when Gendo shoots Ritsuko and she promptly flies 20 feet back, with no visible recoil to Gendo. Wut? :fuyu_facepalm:

Also, I haven't paused to look myself but I've heard others mentioning it, in EoE when Misato's on that Chromebook thing, I believe all that text is various previous works by Gainax.

Oh, and the unnecessarily copious amounts of blood that come from Sahaquiel, that little s**t.

I always found that long pause with Unit 01 and Kaworu to be funny. It's like a solid min.
of nothing happening.
Then pop goes his head! :rofl:

gets me every time..

I genuinely love how good Evangelion hurts
