well I arived at the colusion I was hopelessly adicted to Eva around epesode
5... I didn't realise just how bad off I was untill months later when I came
across this site
just how bad has Eva embeded itself into my life? well these are the
symptoms I myself have come down with (there are 2 pages of this stuff bwa ha
ha ha ha... ahm, sorry)
you know you've been watching too much Eva when....
You know that Shinji Ikari means Hatred of the Truth in Japanese
You sit in your chair with nothing to do and you say "I never thought that
doing nothing could be this exahusting"
You notice that Yebisu beer is 100% alcohol.
You go to the supermarket to look for Yebisu beer
In the Playstation game "Rival Schools" you always Use akira as your back up
character, because of her team up move. (dance like you want to win! heh heh
You know the Names of all the NERV techs.
You say, "It's hot" and your friend replies, "Yes."
You blame passengers for creating "thought noise" when your car won't start.
You try to work out, genetically, if a 1/4 Japanese girl could have red hair
and blue eyes (if you figure this one out you get a cookie)
After you watch something you say "That was nothing compared to Evangelion."
You talk to someone for the first time and talk to them about Eva even though
the dont even know what anime is. (raise your hand if you've pulled this one
You decide to learn Japanese just so you can view the series in its
unabridged, undubbed, unsubbed glory.
When in a sticky situation you say " I mustn't runaway ... I mustn't runaway"
over and over
You understand exactly what is happening at any given point in the series.
Even during the psycho-babble! (well ok, only after my 3rd non-stop marithon)
After reading a list like this you realize that more than half of them
describe you...........and you're damn proud of it (I am)
You can listen to 'Fly me to the Moon' for, oh, say a billion times and not
get sick of it.(of course it helps when there's 20 different versions of the
You start to clasp your hands together and rest your head on them like how
Gendo does it.
You dye your hair blue for no apparent reason (well I like blue ;P)
You do Misato's "oookay?? Oooookay." thing
Nothing on this list seems that unusual to you.
You look at the dates on Yui's grave and get the chills because the birth year
is way too close to yours (if not the same) (1977...creepy)
You start a small Eva following at your workplace. (my greatest triomph)
You start picking out the cast to the live-action "Neon Genesis Evangelion"
series. ( I decided to post my list of symptoms after reading this one lol)
.You know who Mana Kirishima is
You refer to Eva as the German Heroin of anime. (and get many funny looks for
there are more but I want to keep this post a managible size, if you havent
already seen this guys site, check it out, it made me both laugh and wig out
(when I saw how many I had come down with) anyway I hope I'm not boring the
old group members with all this, my apologies if I am.
