Well yes but it always had a gloomy mood in Rei's scenes.

It was raining heavily when Arael attacked; but that's the only occasion I can remember bad weather.

I have a sensory deprivation tank, which is a meditative device with very salty water. Do to the temperature, you cannot tell where the water and air meet or where your body ends, and none of the other five senses work either. I imagine Shinji felt a similar environment in Leliel and throughout End of Evangelion.

SEELE sounds similar to the spanish word "cielo" (sky)

Kind of cool, i think. It also slightly affected how i viewed SEELE throughout the series.

A friend of mine who's in no way as big an Eva fan as me just linked me to one of his IRL friend's Steam profiles. Dude has almost the exact same avatar as SSD's currently sporting. Looked at his previous nicks and one of them is "thanatos." Knowing nothing about him that could be one of any wide range of references but I wonder whether it's Eva inspired.

The mantis (I call "Sachy face") have something both alien and human to me (in addition to the fact they're insects. <.< Obviously.) When I take one of them one my hand it gives me the feeling of been an Eva.

Seagulls. Not only because of the seagull in the first seconds of episode 1 but:
Few weeks ago I was driving the bus home from college and when Air II was playing on my mp3 player, the seagulls that were on the trash site (big one) flew, hundreds of them at the same time. Their (on the underside) black wings and white body, lifting, just yelled in my mind "Harpies!"

The mountains around my area remind me of the ones Shinji would mope around in.

I mimic physicality compulsively, so sometimes when I get out of my elevator I do the forward slump that the EVA's do when they're released from the lifts.

That is a pretty cool catch. I wonder if those are civilians or actual Navy personnel? I know one of the Navy's uniforms is khaki but what I see does not look like it.

A couple of friends of mine are in the Navy and I even got to spend a week on board the USS Carl Vinson with one of them (he's a big Eva fan too) when it was transiting from Pearl Harbor to San Diego. Coolest thing I have ever done by far and now that I think about I was like Kensuke a bit lol. Seeing all of the equipment and aircraft just sent me into complete military nerd mode... needless to say there are tons of pictures I took... and videos :toothy:

I have this classical music CD in my car's radio that I use during short drives. The second and third tracks happen to be "Air" from Bach's 3rd Orchestral Suite in D major and Pachelbel's Canon in D, respectively. So yeah, you can imagine what I think about during those times.

"Air" is probably my favorite classical piece of all time thanks to End of Evangelion. As a cellist, I am obliged to hate Pachelbel's Canon in D with the burning intensity of a million suns.
