Nerd Porn: Stars Wars and Evangelion

July 4, 2010

If you’re a guy, your eyes will probably go straight to her Star Wars fight scene near her baby-maker, but for me, it went straight to her Evangelion forearm tattoo. Evangelion is EASILY my favorite anime, and EASILY my favorite series of anything – ever. I cant even get started on how much I love it, but I love this girl and I am totally inspired (again) to get a Neon Genesis Evangelion tattoo myself. As if I didnt have enough tattoo ideas lined up already.

We salute you, lady.

Now, I stopped suggesting people watch Evangelion a long time ago, because it’s a bit of a mind freak and It takes a certain kind of person to really get into it and understand it. Although, I DO suggest you Wikipedia it, read up on it a bit, and see if it tickles you in any way. Here’s the gist:

“Evangelion is an apocalyptic mecha action series which revolves around the efforts by the paramilitary organization Nerv to fight monstrous beings called Angels, primarily using giant mecha called Evangelions which are piloted by select teenagers, one of whom is the primary protagonist.

Events in the series refer to Judeo-Christian symbols from the Book of Genesis and Biblical apocrypha among others.[6] Later episodes shift focus to psychoanalysis of the main characters, who display various emotional problems and mental illnesses;[7][8] the nature of existence and reality are questioned in a way that lets Evangelion be characterized as “postmodern fantasy

It’s well beyond any other “Giant Robot” anime – it’s a little heavy while touching on subjects of religion and mental illness, so while I feel everyone should give it a shot, it’s not for everybody, but it might be for you. If I can give this series one more fan, that’s good enough for me.
