I actually waited for almost two weeks before I began writing this. I know for a fact that I need to review this episode one more time before I can say anything about it. But upon a second watch, my laughter did not wane and my enthusiasm stayed strong.
My God, my God, where can I find a girl like her? She may not be “Jessie’s Girl” but where can I find a woman like that?
Even though Eva doesn’t do much for me these days, except when I’m making fun of Mike, there’s one character in Eva I still like. No, it’s actually not Misato, at least not in the figurine sense (what the fucking sense is that). It’s Rei Ayanami that I like.
Granted, Rei’s probably too quiet in most people’s opinion, but what I like about her is that she’s not aggressive and she doesn’t talk too much, if at all (I can already hear the women rolling their eyes over and groaning), and yes, I appreciate that very much.
I got a very nice Rei figurine as a pair (not in the same box, but released in the same make). Here’s a picture of her together with Asuka (who’s Mike’s favorite):
