Zeruel-XX is kinda cute ^^

They also had Der Mond, I'm planning to buy it in the near future.

I have Der Mond.

It´s nice to look at, but most of the illustrations were already added in the NGE manga as color pages, so you should consider getting the other artbooks first if you already have the manga.

I was casing out the men’s floors at the LUMINE EST shopping center at Shinjuku station today for some fresh fly threads when I stumbled across the startling sight of the LUMINERV limited-time store lurking within...

Dunno which versions you have, but the American printing doesn't have color pages.

Italian Planet Manga/Panini Comics one has colour pages as well; I may be wrong but in one thread recently it was mentioned that there's an Australian edition that has colour pages as well.

Not sure this fits completely in this topic but the other day I got me a old skool NERV logo t-shirt:
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=260672786716

Consider im in the UK and it came from the US I like to think I got a bit of a bargain even though the logo is a bit cracked. But hey, it gives the impression im an EVA veteran :P

Am I the only one who thinks that used anime T-Shirts are really really gross?

Plus, it´s XL.

There´s currently an image of a very sweaty and overweight person eating pockys at a very hot and crowded anime con in my head.

...

Have fun with it :D

That made me laugh hard.

I do agree with you, I am not too fond of used clothes in general (and XL anime used clothes in particular)

Im wearing the t-shirt right now and im trying to keep that out of my head.

I sell a lot of used clothes for people on ebay (mainly kids/baby stuff) and most of it sells with little or no complaints. I draw the line at selling anything that has obvious marks on it though. And most of it is washed before given to me to sell.

Its worth mentioning a fair number of buyers i get are in places like Bulgaria and Latvia where getting decent brand-name stuff in the shops is expensive.

Don't get me wrong mate.... I don't see anything wrong with it. It just some weird psychological effect it has on me. There's no sound reasoning behind it ;)

I can't wear other peoples clothes unless I know them haha.

Dont worry, i understand - my gf isnt even very happy about so much as touching these used clothes when we're going through them.

Mercifully the majority of them are washed and folded when we get them :)

Wow, I know we discussed that either here or in the Collection topic but I didn't know it folded up! That's wicked. :D

Just bought Volume 1 of the NGE manga, in German for my 12-year-old host sister. I hope she likes it, but I'm worried since her collection consists mainly of things like Naruto and a bunch of fangirl-oriented titles I'm not familiar with. She does have a few volumes of Black Lagoon, so hopefully she'll enjoy Evangelion...
