Yeah. You read right. This is for everything that doesn't have anything to do with Eva.

Uh...hey everyone. I just decided to get into EVA for my 25th birthday. Bought the Platinum volume sets in a nifty art box based on recommendations from this very site!

I am a huge anime nerd so of course I know of NGE. I'm hoping to fall in love with it like so many others have. There is also nothing I love more than getting on boards like these and having discussions. Fiction, to me, exists to form fandoms so that we can all share our thoughts and opinions and in turn refine those thoughts and opinions. And so I'm glad NGE has such a large and vocal fanbase.

I look forward to reading and talking a lot on here.

Welcome, NIkkolas! I would suggest that you don't delve too deeply into the discussions on this board before watching the series, movies and Rebuild - if you're still interested by that point. Spoilers are nasty, especially in the case of NGE.

By "nasty" he means "pervasive". They're all over the place here. We expect people to come here having seen everything there is to see of NGE and Rebuild. I'm Monk, by the way. You'll see me pruning threads of their tangents from time to time. Please make my life easy by staying as on-topic as possible, and, failing that, to keep your posts to one topic per post to make the inevitable thread-splitting easier. I'm not the only "thread surgeon" here, but I'm arguably the most visible and prolific -- hence my custom title.

Hehe, I get to speak with my authority voice to newcomers!

Hi there! I'm writing from Italy, Naples. I watched Neon Genesis Evangelion + End and the Rebuild some month ago, and I was literally killed by the love I felt for this anime, that even today I cannot keep it out of my head and stop thinking about it. I have visited many times the site that refers to this forum, but few days ago l decided to register. Forgive the mistakes, see ya'!

Yo! New guy here, from Canada. I've been an EVA fan since roughly 2004(?) when I was only 12 years old. Of course at the time I didn't understand half of what was going on, I just liked the cool mechs and had my first 2D crush on Asuka. I fell out of interest with anime however from about 06-09 and then I've just been getting more and more into it ever since.

Some of my other favorite anime is Welcome to the NHK, Elfen Lied, Haganai, and despite being a 21 y/o man who loves gory horror movies, I absolutely love moeshit anime like Yuyushiki and K-On.

Music-wise I like a lot of stuff. Black metal, grindcore, IDM, witch house, ambient, crust punk, indie rock, K-pop, J-pop, 90's emo/screamo, power electronics, harsh noise, some hip-hop and dreampop/chillwave.

Anything else you wanna hear me blather on about just ask!

You're thinking of my countrymen further north. I live in Edmonton, we have two main dialects, tradespeak (where every other word is 'fuck') and drunk-native (Eh buddeh, gimme a shmoke er ah'll shtab ya in de gut).

Wait, Canadians can be rude?! This changes everything.

Sorry I shattered your vision of us. Oh yes, we can be rude. We'll just apologize profusely for it afterwards. Sorry.
