Seele, that pretty much covers all the bases.

I was going to suggest that, while training in Unit 01, you loudly ask nobody in particular as to the best way to win a knock-down drag-out brawl, since Yui seems to be remarkably good at that sort of thing; but I guess that's OOC information so we can't do that.

Incidentally, has anyone ever remarked on Yui's apparent fighting prowess? It seems a little odd, really, that a cheery (albeit somewhat unstable) young Japanese woman with a good background, a husband, and a child, would know how to fight like Unit 01 does. I mean, it just tears up in close quarters. The way she takes out Sachiel is almost professionally brutal. She rips his fucking arms off below the elbows with one hand.

Did Gendou teach her to fight or something?

You train for awhile. Since you don't have a camera, you don't bother taking any photos for Kensuke. That goes nicely.

After training, Misato approaches you. "Shinji-kun," she says, "Why aren't you at school?"

Well crap.

Tell the truth. This is Misato you're talking to, not an asshole like Gendo. She should be understanding more or less.

I doubt Gendou would care if we weren't in school; it's not as if he gives a shit about anything we do except as the Unit 01 pilot. Misato might actually be a little more critical, I think, because she wants Shinji to be well-adjusted and normal.

That said: we don't have any real reason to lie to her. Try to head her off with an obviously leading question that sort of answers her, such as, "Do you know anything about fist-fighting?"

Truth!

Did Gendou teach her to fight or something?


Pffft. Gendo WISHES he was that badass. For all we know her masterpieces of brutal mayhem are the real mystery reason he fell for her. Sure she's a scientist and wants to be a happy homemaker but everybody needs a hobby... what's wrong with competing in a few illegal cage fighting tournaments as long as she keeps her grades up and makes curfew?

"I got suspended," you explain.

Misato gasps. "What?! HOW?!"

"I got in a fight."

"You what? Why?"

"He started it."

She stares at you. "I can't believe this. You idiot!" She walks away.

Joy.

"Uh, Misato-san? Can you teach me how to fight?!"

She glares at you for a moment and then walks away.

Because you did not go to class, you actually had five slots for today. We'll hold some revotes now, since Misato refused to cooperate for #2, and #4 and #5 were never voted for anyways. You can also vote to change #3 (which is currently talking to Gendo about fights)

1) Talk to Gendo about fist-fights (DO EET).

2) Ritsuko about Evas.

3) Assist Aoba, for shits and giggles. (Maybe Hyuga could be next time.)

You can't talk to Gendo about fistfights for two slots.

Maybe I wasn't clear (cuz I can fail sometimes). There's five slots. As of now, they're THIS:

#1 (DONE) Train
#2 ORIGINAL VOTE CANCELED. STILL TIME TO DO SOMETHING ELSE.
#3 Talk to Gendo about fist-fights.
#4 BLANK
#5 BLANK


You have to vote for #2, #4, and #5. You can vote to change #3 IF you want. That better?

EDIT: Here's the list of Nerv-related things you can do.

Train in the Eva
Assist one of the Lieutenants
Ibuki
Ooi
Hyuga
Agano
Mogami
Aoba
Talk to Misato about battle strategies
Talk to Ritsuko about Evas

You could also go explore Tokyo-3.


As a further note, any day you do NOT go to school is a day you have FIVE activities at Nerv/elsewhere.

Hopefully this is better:

1) Talk to Gendo about fist-fights (DO EET).

2) Talk to Ritsuko about Evas.

3) Assist Aoba, for shits and giggles.

4) Assist Hyuga afterwards.

5) Leave Nerv forever for the day and explore Tokyo-3!

#1 has already been done, but it balances out since #5 is about leaving and you could theoretically explore the city at night. If you want. I guess there's whores and underground camera shops or something. :P

2) go talk to gendo about the manly arts of ass beating
3) when that fails utterly, go brood in your room for a while, maybe take a nap
4) talk to random low-ranked folks, see if anyone in this place makes sense
5) train some more, why not?

Talk to Ritsuko.
Talk to Aoba.
Talk to Gendou.
After this, you should be in a pathetic enough mood to walk melancholically totally not sure that's a word around Tokyo-3 until the suits come and get you.

You spend a great deal of time trying to establish contact with your father, but fail miserably. Where the hell is he?

Failing this, you decide to talk to Doctor Akagi. She gives you a list of things to memorize about an Entry Plug, so that you'll be safer in Eva-01. Useful.

When you find him, Aoba is working on gun ideas. Your conversations with him, specifically about what little you've done holding guns, seem to help him immensely.

You spend a bit more time training, especially with the guns so that you might be able to help Aoba more later. Out of niceness.

Then you leave Nerv HQ and decide to explore the city. Perhaps you want food? Or to go shopping? Or just to hang out in the park?

Hang in the park, see if somebody you know shows up. Just relax.

Go to the park. But wherever we go, let's keep an eye out for that ass-hat that decked us at school....... I mean Touji, so we can avoid him. :irked:

You hang around in the park for awhile. It seems it's a little too late at night for anyone else to be here though...

You're kinda hungry.
