While there is much

    that’s why I hate her four eyed face at times. It’s like looking at a mirror back when I was fifteen. Oh the arrogance and delusions I had, I believed that I was god but i’m not, I’m human just like everyone else I can bleed, I can die and being an Evangelion pilot should only be a part of who you are.

    Shinji is the pilot of Eva-01 and is the main protagonist of Evangelion. He is known for being a coward by many anime fans but after watching the series myself I have to disagree with that, I mean he did run away a lot of times but that's because of the burden that was given to him so suddenly, he was expected to pilot a gigantic machine that he had never seen before and was forced to fight extremely powerful monsters known as "Angels". Of course anyone would be scared and try to run away from that

    Despite advances in military equipment, guns and tanks are ineffective in combating the “Angels.” Fortunately, for the sake of humankind, the United Nations put together an organization named NERV to combat said “Angels” through the deployment of Evangelions (Mecha’s) to ward off these unfamiliar adversaries. Everything is easy enough at this point, what is not evident is the reason the pilots are required to be 14 years-old, or what allows them to achieve higher levels of

    Initially, I concentrated on buying a wide range of manga to "sample" rather than focusing on specific series. In this way, I acquired random volumes of series such as Gensomaden Saiyuki, Neon Genesis Evangelion and Revolutionary Girl Utena.

For example, I now own all of the Banana Fish volumes that have so far been
