Indeed I did. I remembered Jungs and Takuto myself but the other examples were what cropped up from my image folder when I wrote "avatar" in search field. I've used many other avatars than the ones still lingering in that folder so that list is anything but complete.

Since Breaking Bad has concluded, I've decided to retire Mr. Salamanca.

Among the people who use the Internet, many are obtuse. Because they are locked in their rooms, they hang on to that vision which is spreading across the world. But this does not go beyond mere ‘data’. Data without analysis [thinking], which makes you think that you know everything. This complacency is nothing but a trap. Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.

And so we arrive at demagogy. - Hideaki Anno, 1996

Not sure if you feel the same way, but I prefer having my avatars take up the full 125x125 pixels available. Tried some cropping/resizing for you:

I do too but I don't want to crop out that much of the hat, it's what makes it a Halloween avatar.

Yeah, that's what I figured. I tried getting more of the hat in the first crop, but if I include the whole bow Asuka's face ends up confined to the corner.

My avis here are always Shinji; I've had him blissful, agonised, mistrustful, and just getting on with life:

Image

In the manga, Sadamoto makes hands a significant metaphor for how relationships work. At times the hands may seem incidental, but there are two key moments where they become the entire focus.

In stage 54 (almost dead-centre in the story), Shinji and Rei are in the garden, and Rei recalls the times that Shinji has touched her - then asks if they can hold hands again, which they do:

Image
After Rei II is destroyed, Shinji remembers this (stage 66), and wonders how Rei felt at that moment.

Then during instrumentality (stage 94), Shinji recalls, with examples, how hands have hurt or consoled him, and how his hands have hurt others. As a result, he decides to return; and this time he asks Rei to hold hands one last time - this seals the bargain, and is the instant at which instrumentality is broken:

Image
So there we have my new avi!
