When you put the entire Eva music library on you iPhone. In ALAC format.

Bonus points for every ep, every movie, official music videos, and assorted AMVs.

When you have all of the official books.

When the only figures you'll get are either RAH (for humans) or Soul of Chogokin (for Evas). Well, except for the MPEs; gotta go Revoltech for those, and I did, damn it.

When you have all three collections of the Carddass Eva trading cards (well, almost; still looking for four foils from set three).

My collection is not vast, but it is hardcore. I gotta find another hobby.

People's deaths are to be mourned. The ability to save people should be celebrated. Life itself should be exalted. -- Volken Macmani, Tatakau Shisho: The Book of Bantorra
I hate myself. But maybe I can learn to love myself. Maybe it's okay for me to be here! That's right! I'm me, nothing more, nothing less! I'm me. I want to be me! I want to be here! And it's okay for me to be here! -- Shinji Ikari, Neon Genesis Evangelion
Yes, I know. You thought it would be something about Asuka. You're such idiots.

Obsession? What obsession? More like a way of life.

Also, it's not as if my dreams reach the instrumentality every time I sleep or anything... :sachi_blush:
Or was it the other way around?

When you read through 68 pages of "you know your obsessed with eva when" thread and register just so you can leave a comment.

When you prepared to spend $200+ australian on a second hand eva platinum collection on ebay and get upset because you were outbid and didnt have time to raise before time ran out.

When you do a independent reading assasignment on the first Evangelion 3 in 1 Manga just because it is the only way you will enjoy school.

When you want Toyko-3, and Evangelion universe to be real, and are really hoping that the start of 2015 is proof that Anno predicted the future.

When you join Evageeks.

When you jump out of bed after at 6:00am seeing the announcement that Evangelion is on Blu-Ray and not being able to wait till the summer to get your hands on it.

When you badly want to time travel just to see if 3.0 ever ended up getting release in English and how good 4.0/3.0+1.0 is.

I guess this is pretty mild compared to some of the other things you guys have said.

-when your phone and computer are eva themed
-when you have an eva paper bag from 7-11 hanging on your wall
-when you have a Rei Ayanami puzzle on your desk
-when you buy cakes from mount Fuji just because it had eva themed packaging
-when you take eva terms into real life context constantly

When you watch every single frame of the rapid image streams on EoE and you do it every other day for months.
I could hide familiar in my pain
serve my sorrows in vain
or I could step right outside
and show you that I'm alive
I'll leave you behind...

You hear Fly Me to the Moon being played at restaurant and think it must be 2015 if you're hearing this song being played in public.

You're humming the music of either the TV series or Rebuild movies while reading the respective scenes in the manga.

When you think Taylor Swift music fits in with Eva.
When you compare Eva to any Filipino TV series or movie.
When you wished Eva had a rerun or home video release in your own country. (Philippines does not have a home video release though there are bootlegs and it only aired once in the 90s)
When you think GAINAX or Studio Khara is one of the best traditional animation studios of all time. (for me it's Disney, GAINAX/Khara, and Studio Ghibli)
When you wish there is a crossover with Eva and anything imaginable.
When you immediately think of Eva Unit-01 when you see a purple and green motif.
When you love doing the Gendo pose when you feel so.
When you think of something awesome, A Cruel Angel's Thesis fit's in with it.

When you put up with around 80 minutes of commercials to watch the first 2 Rebuilds back to back on Toonami. I don't even like the Rebuilds, but I just wanted the chance to see something Evangelion related on TV.

When you get a decal of Rei on the back window of your car.

When you get a new car, and get a keychain for it that has "Eva 1" written on a little purple square. Get it? Because it was Eva 00 first, now it's Eva 1... Shut up I'm clever.

What they need to do is rerun the original series. When I was in high school, they played episodes every night at 12:30 am on Adult Swim. It changed my life and kept me from getting a decent night's sleep for months.

"Absolutely. The will to make oneself completely free. Will is the wrong word, because in the end you could call it despair.

I'm sure it'll air again eventually, now that Funimation has the rights again. I really wish I'd gotten to experience my first time watching the series that way though as opposed awkwardly huddled over my monitor. /minor derailment

^ Funimation hasn't announced anything within terms of obtainng the rights to the TV seties yet, have they? I thought it was only the Japanese Studio Khara who obtained the rights and were releasing it through King Records in Japan.

When you start counting spare Rei's instead of sheep to get a good night's rest.

When you dress like Shinji in middle school even though you go to a public school with no required uniform code.

When you walk into a church on Sunday and shout "Acts of Man are greater than acts of God".

When you make a clay figurine in art class of Lilith on the cross and everyone around you freaks out because they have no idea what Evangelion is and just thinking you're being crazy sacrilegious.

When you study books on alchemy and read the Bible to figure out the symbolism and psychology of NGE.
FROM EVANGELION:
"Acts of Man are greater than acts of God!"

"I'm saying that I love you."

NOT FROM EVANGELION:
"You are excrement. You can change yourself into gold."

If you've ever been to THAT BOARD.
Among the people who use the Internet, many are obtuse. Because they are locked in their rooms, they hang on to that vision which is spreading across the world. But this does not go beyond mere ‘data’. Data without analysis [thinking], which makes you think that you know everything. This complacency is nothing but a trap. Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.

And so we arrive at demagogy. - Hideaki Anno, 1996
