Ah, Evangelion. I am nothing if not powered by giant robots and anime tears. With us recently crying our snowy post-apocalyptic red wasteland tears all over the face of the until You come to me animated short, and then ringing in the new year with THE YEAR IS 2015……… I’m all about flying this particular flag and what better way than to get into the cockpit once more, one final time.
So here’s all my love on my sleeve, my ode to joy, my stupid backbreaking project that I’ll never feel like I did good enough. It’s fine. I can always try again. Isn’t that right, Shinji-kun.
Kaworu Nagisa: Lin (me)
Okay, but like thank you so much to Lionel for being a champion amongst men — not only for pulling up our tired selves to get these shots, but for building that magnificent cockpit. A million salutes and a million hearts.
While there’s a certain hilarity to screaming at Shinji Ikari to get in the robot but no wait GET OUT OF THE ROBOT, I’m all about ushering the haters gently to the left — no excuses, but a certain empathy for teenaged trainwrecks.
Just to say: gonna get that super fab “Shinji Ikari Defense Squad” top by Absens / Mandy on my body pronto.
And what better way to quirk an eyebrow at detractors than to get Kaworu Nagisa styled, ver. Rebuild, and fly this angel buddy flag on the low-low. Slim-fit shorts à la school uni / plugsuit colour palette, summer school white shirt with a peek of purple top, and… oh gosh, I’m so sorry about the necklace. Not sorry. A little bit sorry.
Consider this a wink and a nod xxoo to my future Ikari Shinji-kun.
