As I think I said at Otakon, what makes it annoying is the poor sound quality, but I guess you get what you pay for.

One of these days I'll have to get one for my sister.

I have been pretty modest about Eva-related "stuff".

Other than some DVD's I bought used and abajillion files on my computer as well as a few other files I backed up on, I haven't bought anything else.

Don't get me wrong though. I almost bought a bunch of swag earlier this year but I put my smarty pants on and realized with Webuild coming out I should WAIT and see what the folks in Japan start to churn out there before I plunk down a bunch on money when something better is coming out, a la NOT like when folks buy "stuff" from Apple!

I'm going to cut to the chase and just celebrate my favorites and condemn the ones I should've used for gas money.

Celebrate:
-Evangelion 64
-All the Saturn Eva games
-Die Monde artbook
-Various figures/models

Codemn:
-Angelic Days, I borrowed it from someone and yet I still feel ripped off...
-The original Eva DVD set, since if I would have known it would just re-release all these times I could've saved a lot of money...

With simple modification of an N64 or a cartridge-based import tool. The one I have is called a "Super 64", you plug the import N64 game into the Super 64, which plugs into the N64. Kinda like the old Sonic & Knuckles "lock-on technology" from the Sega Genesis days.

As for me, outside of the anime and manga, I only have the Refrain CD. The only other thing I plan to get is the Der Mond artbook.

- 'Take Care Of Yourself' Figure Set - Kaworu, Alt School Rei & Asuka


Kaworu, huh? Odd considering how he wasn't even in that Episode 26 sequence, though the GoS2 universe... ^_^; So, no Shinji...? That makes me a sad panda...Gainax needs to make MOAR Shinji goods!


@ Ayanami: The Symphony CD's M 1 thru 4 tracks are pretty much the Seiyuu talking at that Concert...Saying some of their experiences of working on Eva, how happy they are to be there, things like that:

MC 1: Ogata (ZOMG High voice is high), Yuko and Maya's VA. The only voice-acting thing in this is Ogata quickly saying her "What are you talking about? I don't understand what you're saying, Kaworu-kun!" line

MC 2: Maya's VA and Ritsuko's VA. At one point, do a cute yet quick thing where they talk in character: "Senpai." "Maya." ^_^ Maya's VA comments that Maya's suspicious in terms of her feelings for Senpai, hehehe.

MC 3: Maya's VA, Ritsuko's VA and Yuko talking.

MC 4: Hayashibara and Kotono, though the latter isn't refereed to by name, but I can tell it's her only because I've heard her actual voice many times on Sailormoon specials and the like. ^_^


I forgot to mention I also played a bit of Eva64 emulated, but got my ass kicked repeatedly when only fighting the 4th Angel...And all I was doing was trying to neutralize it's A.T. Field! O_o Damn those tentacle whip things! >__<

And I was able to find and listen to various CDs such as S2 Works (freaking LOVE Sagisu's work now! ^_^), Symphony, Decade, Vox *shudders*, etc...

Refrain CD


Refrain as in "Refrain: Songs that were inspired by Evangelion" (Some...Ink-blot-looking image on the cover)

or "Refrain of Evangelion" (Shinji on the cover) which is like a Best-Of CD?

I've heard both and own the latter; just curious.

The Perfect and Platinum versions of the series. Two versions of D&R and EoE. Der Mond and Die Sterne. And some Eva playing cards. But I am thinking of getting some of the SD figures.

Exactly. I think it's one of those 3 figure sets that only came in UFO Catchers, and the quality is pretty nasty anyway...one Kaworu on...well, Big Blob of Rock in this case a la his first scene, Ye Olde Rei In Appearance Only, and some random AU-Asuka in some random AU Uniform.

What can I say, I got these ones cheap.

I have those Rei and Asuka ones (if we're talking about the same thing and all) and I think they're cute. ^_^

Another thing on my list of wants is the Eva Zippo. One of these days I am going to break down and buy that red one. Even if it's horribly overpriced. (Even on e-bay)

But not that kind of love! There are many ways for people to show they love each other without defiling themselves!

I'm more concerned about an EVA fan reproducing than the sex itself. XD The world can only handle so many eva fans! That one Eva baby will grow up and have five more! And those five will have five more and so on and so forth! And Eva babies only take about three weeks to reach full maturity!! If we're not carefull, they will delepte our plushie resources.
