Hi, I'm Erufailon4, an Eva fan since the Netflix release and currently bored out of my mind while waiting for 3.0+1.0. As a casual fan who is also a casual fan of many other anime series, I haven't really been all that much into the "fandom" side of Eva, but since we're a month into 3.0+1.0 spoiler avoidance I thought I might as well spend more time on a site where I won't get spoiled against my wish. (Thank you for the strict spoiler rules, mods!) I haven't been much of a forum user for a while so in a way I'm also getting back into that. I hope I'll be able contribute something to conversations.

Probably? Hopefully? I'm going through a complex and stressful time in my life right now.

Hey, EGF. I've been lurking on here for something like a year by now, but it wasn't until this morning (I'm from Ireland) when I finally decided to register. I'm definitely not as knowledgeable vis a vis EVA as most of you are, but I still love the series, and hope I can contribute to discussion.

I see. Well, I do hope you'll be more active too, but of course you don't have to, especially if you're dealing with complex and stressful matters in your offline life.

Honestly, I don't really know how to start this post. Anyway, I'm leaving the site. However, before doing that, I would like to write something that comes from the "bottom of my heart".
Neon Genesis Evangelion is important to me. When I first watched it, a long time ago, I wasn't in "good shape". What can I even say? The series caught my attention through its visual and audio flair. It's a unique looking show, to say the least. That said, I eventually found myself intrinsically connected with its characters. Well, everyone here feels like a real person (with struggles, insecurities and aspirations). The series never gets stale and keeps introducing ideias at a nonstop pace! In the end, all of these elements collide to create a cohesive masterpiece (in which one character complements the other). As a result, its three main protagonists are extremely relatable people. It sucked when I saw myself in Shinji, Asuka and Misato. However, in hindsight, that was crucial to me. It opened my eyes and allowed me to understand a lot about myself. More importantly, it made me want to live more and become a better person. I could write an entire text about how "EoTV" e EoE deeply touched my heart, but that's not necessary. That's because I can summarize everything in one line. It broke me, so I could rebuild myself.
Aside from that, it was also fun to watch. Let's be honest, this is an interesting series. I will never forget the day I first experienced The End of Evangelion. It ended during sunset. I watched the last scene, laughed a bit and went to my room. I couldn't take it out of my head for more than a month. Honestly, it still resonates with me. Interestingly, the last time I saw the movie, it ended at sunrise.
See, this is the kind of thing I want to remember when thinking about Evangelion. However, this is not what's happening now. This place is the first thing that comes to mind when I think about NGE. Honestly, I'm not happy with this. I have nothing against this site or the people who visit it. That said, I don't want Evangelion to become a burden on my life. I don't want to force myself to go through this forum and write posts just so that people can take a look at my opinions. I want to appreciate the series for myself! I don't want to think about it all the times. Yet, I want to smile while remembering it. That's why I'm leaving it for a while.
Anyway, I don't know if I was a good contributor or not. Honestly, I was just trying to have fun. We disagree in some instances, but no one was ever disrespectful to me. I'm very grateful for that. Well, I'm leaving in good terms. I wish you all good luck. Keep arguing about Evangelion and, most importantly, being happy! Also, take care of yourselves!
Oh, shout-outs to Berserk EVA-02! Our discussions were the most fun I've ever had on the internet! If you want to talk, you know where to find me.

Maybe I'll come back one day. Until then, goodbye!

I haven't been around for long, and I haven't had too many discussions with you, but I consider you a high quality contributor. A shame you're not sticking around for 3.0+1.0, but I also understand your reasoning. Take care, hope life treats you well.

Baibai & take care, you've been adding a lot of liveliness to this place lately so you'll be missed, but we all also have other stuff to do in life & its good to have the self-awareness to quit while something is still fun.
