Assuming Seele and/or the secret scrolls were the ones that named it, I think it would stand for Lilim Composition Liquid.

I don't know if this has been brought up before but the origin of LCL is from that james cameron movie that takes place under water, the abyss. watch that and maybe you'll get a few clues as the meaning.

Wikipedia wrote:In the Anime Neon Genesis Evangelion, the cockpits of the titular Mecha are filled with a fictional oxygenated liquid called LCL which helps to dampen impacts on the pilot in battle and helps him to better psychically-synchronize with his biomechanical vehicle.


What a funn sentence.

I mean you should click the Google link for background on real world liquid breathing systems dating way back -- the sort of thing that inspired the concept used some 30 years later in that movie.

and that didn't give anyone any clues as to a possible solution to the acronym?

tell if i'm wrong but wasn't the acronym spelled out in the intro in one of those single frame images?

Nope. AT field is, but I think all we ever get is just a flash of "LCL" - maybe not even that, I can't recall.

If there was a stated correct answer that's what we'd all be using; as it isn't, I'm going to stick with Lilith Creation Liquid, since that's the most accurate descriptor that you can use around small children that fits the acronym.

For some reason, the first time I heard of LCL I thought it stood for Liquid Cooling Lotion. I have no idea why.

Life Component Liquid does sound better for now until we know what it really stands for.

Off-topic though, what does AT in AT Field stand for? I read it's Anti Terror but it doesn't make sense...
I watched lots of animes but none is better than NGE :)

After watching NGE, other animes just won't do anymore for me...

Never. Although the EoE Program Booklet (Red Cross Book) does state:

Translation by Bochan Bird:

[L.C.L]
The liquid that fills the inside of the entry plug. Viscous in nature and having a blood-like odor, when charged by electricity its molecular arrangement is altered, allowing L.C.L to perform a number of functions such as mentally linking the pilot and the Eva, supplying oxygen, and providing both physical and mental protection to the pilot. This same L.C.L also fills the lowest level of Terminal Dogma where Lilith is kept. Various interpretations have been circulated such as that "L.C.L" is the abbreviation of "Link Connected Liquid", but what it appears to be is the actual "soup of life".
(Translator's Note: The D&R Movie Program (Sp. Ed.) states clearly that "L.C.L" is *not* the abbreviation of "Link Connected Liquid".)


Translation by Patrick Yip:

[L.C.L]
The liquid that fills the cockpit of the Entry Plug. It is sticky and has the smell like blood. It was discovered that when its molecular arrangement is changed by electricity charge, the liquid can perform several functions including the mental link between EVA and her pilot, supplying oxygen and providing both physical and mental protection to the pilot. The liquid that fills the lowest floor of the Terminal Dogma where Lilith was located is also L.C.L. "L.C.L." is the abbreviation of "Link Connected Liquid". There are many theories as to what exactly L.C.L. is, but it seems that in fact it is what was called "the soup of life".


Seems somewhat inconclusive, but I'm fairly certain "Link Connected Liquid" is firmly debunked.

And as mentioned a few pages back, Evangelion: Chronicle suggests one of the "L"s stands for "Lilith".
