Sorry if this is a repost, but my head cannon is... The pilots are taller. Knowing that the 3 of them are under 5 ft doesn't seem right. Also I am taller than Misato by an inch. Gendo and Fuyu are fine, but why did Shinji get the short genes, Yui was as tall as Gendo.

Like just average them all over 5ft 1 in and we are good.

To be fair, developmentally speaking they aren't finished growing. You never know, maybe if we flashed forward 4-6 years Shinji would be taller than Gendou. Also keep in mind, that Asians are typically shorter than other ethnicities, not everyone can be Yao Ming

Yui's actually 5'6" while Gendo's 6', but it's a fair point nonetheless. The kids shouldn't be as short as they are. Artistic license and all of that.

^^ Hmm, them being "late-bloomers" makes a lot of sense... And personally I was done by 14, but you are right, people can keep growing past 18 in some rare cases.

^ Bagheera ya Ninja!

But yea they are too short, almost legal midgets.

I didn't reach 6' 1 until I was 19 years old. Give 'em time to grow. :D

My headcanon, minor though it may be: Asuka and Shinji are the same height all their lives.

Gendo avoids the all-too-frequent staff weddings not just because he's an aloof jerkass, but because he always cries at such events and it would totally kill his imposing veneer forever. He still takes it as an insult when he isn't invited to such an occurrence even though everyone knows he won't attend.

Despite her usual demeanor, Rei listens to happy hardcore and is terrified her secret will be discovered.
Though, Gob still might look good in a cocktail dress.

Rei wanted to know what waffles tasted like.

After Third Impact, there was a strong push to develop an alternative to the standard manned Eva unit. This lead to the development of the Mark.04 drone series by Nerv/IPEA and the Jet Alone v3 by the JSDF or a third party. Powered by N2 reactor technology and equipped with RS Hoppers, it's the safer but less effective alternative to the Evangelion and makes up the bulk of Wille's ground forces.

There's gotta be some reason there were only seven more Evas in that time period! :tongue:
Someday I hope that we'll be reunited if that is what's destined to be. Perhaps we'll discover that elusive bible. And then we will finally be free!

Asuka and Shinji end up together.
Shinji is very good at and loves cooking. (Is this actually established in any existing canon? I know we see him doing it but that seems more out of him having no choice)
Asuka's mother was a fan of Marillion (Particularly the album Misplaced Childhood)
Shinji is terrified of spiders and has to get Asuka to dispose of them.

-If Shinji and Asuka got married, Shinji would be the domestic, stay-at-home Dad taking care of Son/Daughter and Asuka would be the breadwinner working all day, all night traveling frequently between Germany and Japan as a businesswoman (she has an MBA), never having a moments peace and would barely be present at home. There'll the be the occasional kisings/snuggling but everything else would be long distance relationship.

-If Rei Ayanami were actually human, she'd probably be Asuka and Shini's doctor and the pediatrician of their kids. In her spare time, she'd be taking care of her talking Galapagos penguin, who's the last of his kind in the 2030/2031.

Another minor one of mine:

-- Asuka's actually a decent (not great, just decent) cook, but she's too lazy to bother most of the time.

Asuka is friends with Franziska von Karma, and is a deft hand with both a whip and a riding crop.
