McDonald lacks taste, there's nothing new under the sun.
EDIT: the part that made me (bitterly) laugh is the one about pixiv, they're probably right about it.

Asuka has as much character and quality as a McDonalds burger anyway, so it's no surprise they prefer her.

Wonder what prompted them to ask Mcdonalds or why Mcdonalds even answered

Well of course burger joints aren't going to endorse Rei. She's a vegitarian.

Sad to hear that Rei didn't get as much birthday fanart though.
I'm not sure what I feel about Eva anymore, but I'm pretty sure I don't actually enjoy the series anymore.

Well at least there were some nice ones but I had the same impression, also there wasn't anything related to Q, you could say that those few who drew something were in complete denial mode "Q doesn't exist, it just didn't happen, etc., etc." :lol:

Such unseemly sentiments. This is why Rei doesn't have many fans in the West, too many bitter fans as it is.

Rei's always gotten short shrift in the franchise, but given her descent into moeblob status in the new movies it's not surprising her fans would focus on the original work. At least it gave her a story of her own, stunted as it was.

Except that's not what happened, Rei and LRS were very popular after Ha came out and I'd say that most of the few pics posted recently still portray her around those lines, the issue was in THAT last film and you perfectly know what I and Crunchyroll are talking about.

They usually take after their favourite character.

How is it Asuka fans are getting the flak here when you're the one making personal attacks?

Poor, poor Rei.

It's alright, I'll always love you. Let me get you a bowl of Miso soup and a warm blanket...

*Ahem*

Anyway...Who honestly cares what manufacturers of crappy burgers have to say about Evangelion? Here's to hoping that Rei steps on McDonalds in Unit 00.

It's not like they were really choosing one character over another anyway; whoever was manning the twitter account saw a pic of two girls, one with red hair and blue eyes and the other with blue hair and red eyes, and said "uh . . . I'll go with the one that looks like a normal person, sue me" and here we are. The Wendy's response wasn't even related to the pic (note their mascot).

So, Rei was only dissed in the loosest possible sense of the term.

Nah, it's real. Somebody linked to the actual tweets on IRC a few days ago when they were new.
