A set of images from the ‘Groundwork of Evangelion - The Movie 1’ artbook, plus an image composite, detailing the elements present in one of the theatrical EoE posters.

Things to notice:

  • They all seem to be female characters (including background ones).
  • Misato and Asuka are intact (thankfully).
  • Rit-chan is the only one floating away (as per her final moments).
  • There’s only one levitating Rei supervising the entire scenario.

the only OTP question you need to ask is which one is the aesthetic blogger and which one is the shitposter

The NGE Casts’ Tumblrs

Shinji reblogs mostly memes, particularly different variations of the same pepe face over and over and over. The rest of his posts are music that he also reblogs, or random text posts talking about how sad he is at the time. Strangely enough, these are the posts that get the most notes.

Asuka doesn’t reblog anything, instead she posts “motivational quotes” that she herself has said, along with hundreds upon hundreds of pictures of her Eva with captions like “Gonna kick some ass today”

Rei technically has a tumblr, but mostly because Shinji suggested she make one. He helped her set up her account. Her blog is the default theme with the header saying “hello” in all lowercase letters. It’s blank except for like, one book quote that she’s reblogged when Shinji was explaining how to reblog things.

Kaworu’s blog is filled with reblogs from Shinji’s blog with tons of excessive and sometimes an inappropriate amount of heart emojis added on to it. He also reblogs those affectionatesuggestions and the like alot to tag Shinji in them.

Mari runs a pink aesthetic blog. The only posts that don’t fit her theme are the selfies that Asuka posts of herself with her eva. Mari likes to occassionally add “Yes, Princess, slay!” onto these.

Misato wanted to be cool like Shinji and Asuka so she made them help her make one. It’s mostly drunk posts, reblogs of those posts that take a screenshot of a funny post and has weird unnecessary commentary added on, along with pictures of attractive male actors.

Toji is fairly inactive as well, but he likes to reblog occassional stuff from Shinji telling him to cheer up or he’ll deck him.

Kensuke reblogs all of Asuka’s eva pictures, which she thinks is weird and annoying, along with other random military facts that may or may not be true.

Kaji has a plantblr. It’s all pictures of his watermelons and asks he’s answered giving people advice on how to care for their garden. He refers to all his plants as ‘The Boys’.

Ritsuko runs a government conspiracy theorist blog where she posts all her wild, crazy, and let’s be real probably accurate theories about our lizard overlords.

Maya is here for cute puppies and motivational pixel art.

Gendo is a pornbot, everyone has blocked him

For my fifty-eighth Evangelion book review, here is Ide Koji no Evangelion Forever (Koji Ide’s Evangelion Forever), published by Amuse Books.  Koji Ide is a musician and radio personality who also happens to be an Eva fan, so in this book he explores the Evangelion TV series and The End of Evangelion with a little help from the voice actors and producer. Cool!

This book is not available in English or French, but there are a number of pictures (some in full color, some in black-and-white). The dust jacket is also removable, and the alternate cover art hidden underneath is a bunch of silhouettes of the Evas, printed in golden yellow.  What I like about this book is that it has nice pics of some of the voice actors, which is something that we don’t usually get to see in most Eva books.  Of course, there are images of the characters as well, such as the ones on this page from a section about Kaworu:


Keep reading for the rest of the book review, plus a few more pictures!
