listen up, dudes. there's a new blue-haired babe here to introduce themselves, and... wait, my hair isn't blue.

maybe it's a blue, haired babe, and thus having hair and, occasionally, some amount of blues actually means i fit the description? who's to say

anyways yeah hi idk this series is more a part of my DNA than simply a series i liked at this point so how do i even try to condense that down to a normal forum post l0l. i watched eva in mid-late '17; i don't remember precisely when i started, unfortunately, but i know i watched ep.14 some time in early-mid october and finished on halloween, which is obviously a total mood. EoTV and EoE (particularly the former) played a non-negligible role in me not killing myself just like a thousand sadbois before me and EoTV is my favorite art product in existence (apologies to "devil's arcade" by bruce springsteen and automatic for the people by r.e.m.; y'all are still near the top.) i was doing very badly around that time and, upon finishing eva, i was still doing badly, but like, less badly, and it gave me the tools to start doing better. i've been doing ehhh again at points this year and so should utilize them more often for sure.

thereafter i've gone through periods of hyperfixating on it and periods of being distant from it for a while but rn two of my closest friends are watching it for the first time, almost entirely unspoiled to entirely unspoiled, and while neither one is very far yet this still has me way back in hyperfixation territory as of rn.

i like long walks on the beach and reading Shinji as autistic, the latter having helped me accurately peg myself as such a while before actually getting officially diagnosed by a specialist. episode 4 is top-tier and episodes 7 and 10 are both underrated; most of why i made this account was just to go hype up magmadiver, which is still one of the worst episodes, but is still very good. i want a tattoo of the horizontal white line from 16 and of Shinji floating in the world of perfect freedom from 26, but i'm not sure where to get them, because i, like Shinji, tend to exist in an impassable fog asking for directions. if anyone here teaches the cello and can tell me where to get a tattoo, by all means.

the stuff that hit me the hardest upon my first viewing was some of the stuff about social anxiety in 16, various quotes about hope and having helpful responses to things and all that sort of thing, and then a bunch of the instrumentality stuff (esp. from 26) about maintaining hope to self-improve, facilitating change within one's self, maintaining a belief that life is worth living etc etc., with "you're capable of change any time your mind perceives these changes" having been a particularly big one, among others. this stuff all still helps me now when i focus on it, which isn't as often as it should be (really would have been nice to be able to formulate that clause as "which wasn't often" as a 21 reference, but alas), yet now a lot of the themes about identity and the relative nature of truth (the latter of which kinda underpins a lot of the hope stuff anyway in ways i didn't recognize then and maybe never would have prior to actually starting therapy lmao) that on a first viewing i found intriguing, but not particularly interesting, are actually some of the ones i find the most interesting and sit with the most often. by this logic in another 4 years i'll probably start thinking the themes about science vs. religion are the most interesting part of the show -- which tbh, i could get there now if i thought about the series in conjunction with "monty got a raw deal" by r.e.m., but anyways. i'm juuust on the cusp of getting to a point of thinking "actually the most interesting part of the show is gendo interacting directly with the non-diegetic text in EoTV" which will definitely be a big breakthrough if i cross over into that territory fully.

i've been loosely aware of evageeks since idk while watching the back end of the show or certainly soon after finishing it, but have never really been on it until now more or less. so, here we are. i am stunned that hedgehogsdilemma wasn't taken as a username by now. most of my eva takes these days are about autism, and a fair amount of my autism is about eva. hooray.

Hello there! A couple months ago I got into Evangelion. I know, crazy that it took me this long to get into it, but eh, I'm satisfied with finding out about it in general. And I mean, there's a lot of things that made me love it; the retro-futurism of NGE; the whole weird esoteric-religious imagery, and of course, the characters. I shouldn't relate to Shinji as much as I do.. Anyways, I hope to enjoy my time on this forum, not only to enjoy Evangelion with multiple people, as well as Indulging with the community, but to see other peoples' insightful thoughts on this series.
Overly Emotional Children pilot me; I may also have one of their mothers' souls powering me. Also, Shinji is absolutely adorable and must be protected.

I feel now is the right time. I finally finished the last thing I had on my bucket list and watched the final rebuild movie. So I don't have any real reason to stay here anymore. I've said what I wanted to say about the final movie, got the closure I wanted talked with some friends about the story, and after all that I am ready to move on. After years on the forum, this is going to be my final post. It's been a lot of fun chatting with you all, I've made some good memories here, and met a lot of interesting people. But it's time for me to move on from the forum and this fandom. I like myself and where I am a lot more now than when I first came here, so I am ready to go live my life now. Thank you everyone.

Will I ever come back? I might show up on the discord every once in a while to say hi. But I really just don't have any reason to stay in this community anymore. I've grown apart from this community, and It's time to let a new generation of fans take the reins and discuss what eva means to them. I've said everything I need to.

Until we meet again. Stay gold Evageeks.

Goodbye, Ray. We didn't talk all of that much. However, you came off as a fun person and good contributor (your posts improved a lot after you came back). I understand and respect your reasonings for wanting to move on. I wish you luck on whatever you set to do.
Thanks.
Just sit here and waste your precious time. When you want to do something, don't do it right away. Don't do it when you can. Read my posts instead. It's the only way to live a life without regrets.

I did join much earlier in the year, but I've mostly been lurking, so here's my formal hello. I Joined only a little after my first watchthrough of TV + EoE actually. Just watched 3.0+1.0 a few days ago too. I probably won't be posting much but it's nice to be here.

Haven't posted in 8 years (since the 3.0 English dub premiered), just finished up 3.0+1.0 so I might hang around a bit! Need to work through the bittersweet apathy of finishing a series, Eva in particular.

Hello everyone! I am Into the Eva-Verse, and I'm very excited to be here to discuss and share everything Eva! :w00:

I've been lurking these forums for years since I started watching Evangelion, and now that the original series and movies are officially coming to Blu-ray in North America, I thought that now would be the perfect time to join.

(PS: My username is a mashup of "Into the Spider-Verse" and "eva-verse," a term that I saw someone use on here a few weeks ago.)
