The Neon Genesis Evangelion Drinking Game

Rules

  1. Every time Shinji says he “mustn’t run away”, take a shot
  2. If Shinji runs away anyway, down the bottle.
  3. Every time there is something pretentious on screen (i.e. the angels explode into crosses), take a shot.
  4. If a single shot is held for longer than 30 seconds, take a shot. If the shot continues past 30 seconds, take another shot every 10 seconds.
  5. Every time you find yourself beyond confusion, down the bottle.

You’ll be dead within the hour.

Wait, woah, woah, woah. Is that a fucking repeat? IS THAT A FUCKING REPEAT?!

For those unfamiliar with how to read music, :II is put at the end of a measure/set of measures that are to be repeated before continuing on in the piece. AND HERE COMES ANNO PUTTING IT IN THE TITLE OF THE FINAL REBUILD FILM. He couldn’t just make it New Evangelion Theatrical Version: Repeat. He had to go and make it pretentious and sophisticated looking! Anno, Evangelion isn’t this piece of high art, it a series about a fourteen-year-old boy piloting a giant mechStop trying to make it seem deep and sophisticated, because in the end it just comes off as pretentious.

And yet I still love Evangelion
