Also, the original GOS, although that was more an added episode than an entire universe.


I think Asuka's behavior in the game can pretty much put it in the Alternate Universe category, let alone Shinji just believing that a girl who he's just met is instantly in love with him.

Spoiler warning for GoS/IM!

Anyone who didn't realize Mana was full of crap with her "I have no ulterior motives, I love Shinji" shtick really needs to get their head checked...

End spoilers!

I haven't got it, so I wouldn't know. What's so weird about Asuka's behavior?
Normality is overrated

Kaworu/Asuka - give it a chance!
(Clarification - I still like Asuka/Shinji)

Augh... I didn't want to bring this back... but dammit I started it so...

She basically does everything save for telling Shinji to "rip through these walls and do me, do me forever."

Seriously, she flirts to a point where even the most far-gone Shinji/Asuka fan would get diabetes from her sweet behavior. She (jokingly, though by the end of the game you realize there's truth in her meaning) mentions that among Kaji, Aoba, and Shinji, she would marry the latter and not the former (and I DID play through three times for the verification, though when selecting Aoba I think she said said she'd marry Kaji. The other two are more directed to Shinji though so I'm being democratic and saying majority rules). She's insanely jealous of Mana for being so close with Shinji, and even jokes that they are in a relationship where he has her undergarments and they bathe together when Mana is over for dinner.

Not convinced? There's more. Here's where it gets spoilerific. When Mana is missing, Asuka orders that she and Shinji search her room alone (Touji and the others came along) and when in there she asks if he'd be interested in moving out from Misato's apartment and living together (she claims it was a joke or idle thought afterwards, though). After Mana is presumed to have been nuked by a N^2 mine Asuka tells Shinji she can be a replacement for Mana if he'd like (though once again, she tries to cover it up by saying she'd be doing it for Nerv). Her tone is not nearly as joking in the last scene I mentioned, there's some more sincerity in it.

As if that wasn't enough, the ending has some generally out-of-character (mostly on Asuka's part) interaction between the two. There's a script online of the Asuka ending somewhere, but there's also the image of them embracing each other to escape the rain and that's from said ending.

It's almost a rite of passage to sit through GoS for an Evangelion fan, as it is almost sickening at points. Asuka was right about Mana, but it's hard to believe Mana could have fooled anyone with her act-- what's worse is that she did. All that aside, you may like GoS. It helps if you think of it as a flash animated fanfic more than something official.

If you want me to give you a general outline of the story in GoS, PM me and I'll get on that, but let's try not to derail the topic any further. Any news about this rumor (ANIMA)?

Could be interesting, but I have a feeling this will be another alternate universe series created to make money.

Erm, isn't that statement already self-evident by ANIMA's very existence?

I'm pretty much 100% sure that's what this is, to be honest.

Oh well, still looking forward to it! :]

Well, this looks interesting. I would be interested in taking a look, but I just hope they do a good job with this AU. This, of course, is to make money. But I'll still pick it up.

On the note of GOS . . . urgh, I hate it when characters act nothing like they normally would, and Asuka sounds . . . urgh.

It's more of a flash animated fan fiction than anything else. Think of it that way and it's a much easier pill to swallow.

Well, think of it as low-budget (and by that, I mean creator interest in the project). It's basically an animatic with voice overs, if you know what that is. In short, pictures with voices. It's something you should probably suffer through once if you think you're up to it (I say suffer as some love it, some hate it. Depends if you can handle bland and predictable stories that take two or more hours and extreme out-of-character qualities for some of the cast).

This looks and sounds genuinely stupid. I hope that such an impression will be soundly beaten and forgotten, but I won't be surprised if it's merely slapped on the cheek before its assailant doubles over and collapses on a pile of money.

no idea what it is and really could do without another Anno-less version of Eva. Oh well, its not like I trudge through the epic mindless crap that are the "Accesories of Evangelion". Thats souless brand naming and nothing less.
Still, on an aesthetic level I like the look of an older Asuka and Rei. But with R'Eva happening any kind of sequel to the Tv Series strikes me as mute.
And if its supposed to be a novel whats the purpose of character designs anyway?

Im content with Gainax pillaging the Eva name as long as they keep it out of anime. Make as many "Shinji is teh pimp of the universe by being effeminate" mangas as you want or creepy nude Asuka sex dolls and even creepier (and cute but pointless) Chibi Evas you wish. But don't try to pull of a sequel anime.
Unless Anno is spearheading the project in script and direction.

P.S. I wonder if Japanese use spell check. Cause in the lower right hand corner under "Staff" I can only assume that is meant to say HEAVEN'S PRISON...never heard of Heven.
More world repeating itself in Shinji's head after EOE. Someone at GAINAX read "Retake" and a whole new world of Eva properties opened up. I wonder when the Evangelion Pokemon imitation begins.

Does this new AU having anything to do with this http://evageeks.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3360 ?? Or is Stardust not paying attention at this thread? ^^;

@ Apathetic Piggy: You're forgetting that in the "Asuka's Virgin Road Quiz!", Asuka says that Shinji is the one who'll be her "future husband". ;)


EDIT: Never mind. It's nice to see a new AU Eva thing that's not based on the GoS2 universe, but the actual series universe instead, w00t w00t!

And it takes place after EoTV's events, eh? It's the same ending as EoE, so there's no difference with that. :mrgreen:

I agree! I actually love Evangelion merchandise (well, except for the ridiculous sexualized merchandise) but if they touch Eva canon and mess it up, I'll .... er.... never forgive them!
