Here we see the "Rei and Asuka bottled water." Nothing improves the taste of fresh, clear mountain spring water like drinking it from the neck hole of a mentally-unsound pubescent girl's limbless torso. I personally think these containers could have been put to better use containing orange juice.

Presented for your consideration: the Ayanami Rei soap dish. This is just one of several available designs; a collection that includes the above-pictured Rei despondently gazing into her empty hands and wearing a towel while bathing for some reason, Misato drinking beer while taking a relaxing soak, and Asuka slitting her wrists and staring at the clouds floating above the broken and discarded remains of what was once a lovely countryside home.

The Rei and Asuka bicycles, for your amusement. The lightweight frame and garish colour scheme suggests the basic outline of each character, with the only notable difference between the two being the Asuka bike's traditional drop handlebars compared to the Rei bike's risers. Perhaps this is meant as a subtle conveyance of their emotional state in bicycle form? We may never know the designer's true intentions. Notice that these bicycles only have one (extremely low) gear, ensuring that your friends and coworkers will have plenty of time to watch you pass by on your stunning new bicycle!

Don't forget the proper safety equipment! Gainax provides us with two different helmet designs for style and comfort. Both have snaps across the front I assume meant to accommodate a visor, and each comes with a NERV-branded drawstring carrying bag. Available in the traditional Unit-01 design scheme or in a slick minimalist NERV design. The NERV design is branded across the forehead with a decal reading "EVA PRODUCT," in case there was ever any doubt in the minds of passers-by as you glide past them on your Evangelion bicycle. But your headgear isn't all they'll notice...

Style and comfort await you in the Evangelion spandex bicycle shorts! These shorts are breathable and stretchable to accommodate the modern Evangelion fanatic. Spectators will marvel at your shapely legs and clearly-visible junk. Wear them together with the Unit-01 helmet for a matching outfit; use the resulting conversation-starter to prompt lengthy discussions amongst your friends and family as to why the designers would deliberately invert traditional sensibilities by designing the bicycles after the pilots and the rider accesories after the Eva units. Perhaps truly it is the Evas who are masters of their pilots?

Listen to your music in comfort and fidelity with the Evangelion circumaural headphones. These adjustable wired headphones have a sporty design based on a streamlining of the classic Unit-01 design scheme around each earpiece. The top band reads "Evangelion" in subtle glossy letters against the matte finish of the headband, so even passing helicopter pilots will be able to recognize your love of Neon Genesis Evangelion.

Keep your tootsies toasty with Evangelion ankle socks! The vivid Unit-01 socks are embossed with a rubberized NERV logo on the sole for a non-slip surface. Or you can adorn your feet with an adorable machine-stitched representation of Lillith, the horrifying crucified angel sealed away in the deepest confines of NERV, whose blood serves as the life-sustaining LCL fluid present in all the Eva Units.

Yeah, I'm surprised too. The "NERV-brand condoms --when you need protection as good as an AT Field" is one of the most ancient jokes in the fandom.

Then again, the marketing department at Gainax probably figure someone who would buy such a thing would never find a use for it.

Mankind is an imperfect creature. It cannot exist in solitude, yet reflexively pushes people away, even as they try to get close to one another. Conflict arises because despite needing one another on a fundamental level, there is a deep, flawed desire to cut one's self off from the rest of the world, to put up walls--whether physical, mental, or emotional. That boundary is one of the fundamental reasons humanity will never reach it's full potential. It is a paradox that almost seems to underscore the futility of humans existing in this world.

EVANGELION FOOD ROUNDUP
or: things that I thought weren't funny enough for their own post

I'm not sure what these AT Field things are supposed to be. Noodles? Some manner of corn snack? They remind me of Cheetos Wheels, which tasted several times better than regular Cheetos on the grounds that they were also wheels.

Those tiny AT-Field ramen bits are a thing of beauty. Truly the Japanese are light years ahead of us in sodium-enriched snack technology.

The SEELE hoodie is the hoodie that all your friends have always wwished you would wear. The warm but breathable fabric is still thin enough that you will still be able to communicate in sound-only mode. This is seriously a real thing you can buy.

From a series consisting largely of 14 year old girls wearing skin tight latex suits, this is still somehow the most bondage-y thing I've seen.

Who needs peripheral vision when you can have the Evangelion-branded line of eyewear! They coordinate perfectly with all of your Evangelion-branded clothing, including the Evangelion bicycle collection, Evangelion sleepwear, and the inevitable Evangelion Snuggie. One size fits most. I admit the Unit-02 design is pretty boss.

I'm pretty sure the "I" thing was mistakenly inferred by anime fans who didn't get the sci-fi lit reference. The word "ai" is written in katakana instead of kanji, but that could simply indicate significance being lent to the word, not that it's meant to be a foreign term. The only comment I can find from Anno himself amounts to "Yeah, I thought the title of this book was cool, so I used it for the last episode"—no mention of a bilingual pun.

The new series of movies is probably the best version of the story, Mari aside. It does some neat stuff that they either didn't have the budget for or just couldn't do* back when the original series was made; and more interestingly it's more reflective of post-depression Hideaki Anno: instead of "life is cruel," it's more "life is cruel, but you can work through it."

It's just that Uniqlo wants to sell things to a broad audience (i.e. average Japanese people and also foreigners living in a couple major metropolitan areas instead of just creepy otaku).

I just saw RADIO EVA (http://radio-eva.jp/) covered on NHK World's Tokyo Fashion Express by the douchiest presenter in the woooorld. I wanted him to die everytime I saw his hipster hairdo. People can try to catch it later today with the NHK World app or jib.tv.

Oh, and some bad pictures (http://irenebrination.typepad.com/irenebrination_notes_on_a/2012/04/radio-eva-fugahum.html) of really crazy FUGAHUM stuff! That last one is based on the cast's HAIR.

Gainax always puts a twist on everything they do. In this case, where you would have thought they'd say "We would never cash in on our epic about emotional trauma and the human condition," instead they said "Sell out EVERYTHING. Sell out harder than anyone has ever sold out."

Good to see Gainax make an effort to make its fans presentable, maybe even stylish. No geeky AT Field-inspired necktie patterns, no eye-searing purple on green cuffs and collars, no plug suit motifs anywhere! (Ignoring the silly entry plug and obligatory Eva-1-colored tie bars, anyway.) Very subtle and nice, indeed.

And I'd buy those Ramiel cufflinks in a heartbeat. Those actually look great on their own, regardless of any Eva association.

Ah, the enfleurage of milquetoast. Instead of the AXE Effect where women flock to you, it creates the Absolute Terror Effect where you flee from women.

I wonder if it's named "2Way" because someone at Gainax realized that, even if the promotional image has three people in it, naming it "3Way" would've been unfortunate.
