The guy who adapted the translation (Fred Burke) is pretty brilliant, from what I've heard of him, but it's clear that accuracy to the Japanese is not his main goal. In the case of Gunnm it improved the original, and even the mangaka thought so.

I saw these pictures ages ago and can't find them, but does anyone have the 'preview' images for 1.0? They had stuff that wasn't even in the film such as an Eva wielding a Spear/Lance (I can't remember which) and had Kaworu in it. They might have been fake I guess, but I'm interested to see them again and the forum that I saw them on no longer has the images. Description is a little vague I know, but it's all I got! Thanks for any help :)

Can I get some images of Rei in the Yellow Sweater school uniform? We don't get to see enough of that in Canon.

Anybody got a full image of the box art on the back of the EoE? When I looked at this morning after it came in the mail, I dismissed it as random people in the sea of LCL, but I now noticed Asuka at the bottom and Misato in the middle. A full version of this without all the text and what not would be great of anyone has it!

The image is originally for the EoE theatrical poster.

This is the best textless version I have, could porbably use form fiddling: http://i.minus.com/iogoi3HpQ4UGc.jpg

If you look closely on the top part, you can see Rei standing above the water and overlooking everyone sinking! :D

Misato, Asuka, Rei, Maya, and lots of Nerv staff. It's an interesting image when you look at it closely, huh? There's also a Hikari there, if you look really carefully.

Ritsuko's clothes can be seen as well.

Heres another one, anyone got a large version of the image on the leaflet/poster on the inside, the picture of neked Rei in the middle with Unit 1, Unit 2, Shinji, Asuka, Gendo and Misato on it? It looks pretty cool.

Pretty much everything old-Eva-related has been scanned and is relatively easy to find  SPOILER: Show

This photo makes Misato's sidearm look more like a Jericho than a Heckler & Koch USP. But everything else is nice!

It's a stylized Browning Hi-Power, or a 1911 (one of that family of firearms). Look at the thumb safety catch.

....This is a great picture, incidentally.
Though, Gob still might look good in a cocktail dress.

Thanking you once again, I honestly had no idea where to look for that and asking seemed simpler :tongue: Another awesome picture though.

There is a lot of fan art (2D and 3D) detailing Misato's piss-poor trigger discipline. I think it's canon by this point: Misato is a reckless shooter. For shame, Misato.

For shame.

And yeah, she should have the USP. But that picture is showing something from Browning's notebook.

It ain't canon unless it's in the show, damn it.

Meh.

On a related topic, I want a leftie version of Misato's shoulder holster. I want it very badly, since I can get the gun and carry it legally. For work, even. But Japan hates me, so it will never happen.

Nerds with firepower, Monk Ed.

I really should drop the $65 bucks a CHL costs, but I never do. Of course, I can just wait until Texas eventually becomes open-carry, because that's looking like it might be a bigger possibility each day.
