No, you hentai! ^_^ We like Rei because she's so mysterious, and for me, the
red eyes and white hair are irresistible. Her quest for identity is

I am an Asian who considers myself more Western ^_^, and I pity Asuka and
like Rei (and pity and like Shinji). And identify with all the above.
This would be an study worth undertaking : how age, culture and religion
affects one's EVA preference.

"Who is this? This is I. Who is I? What is I? - Rei Ayanami
I am myself. This object is I. The figure that forms me."
When someone stands in the light but does not give it out, a shadow is created.
The ways of nature and of life are strange and deep. They are not to be
understood. In the midst of angers and of wars love's secret work goes on,
and binds us all by blood, and this, whether love is denied or bestowed. -
