Felix Bujo and Philippe Leblond for Mr Turk
Just a friendly reminder that Anno and Co. originally intended for Rei Ayanami to creep the hell out of us.
Rei was, for all intents and purposes, a personified backlash against the hordes of 80s and early 90s fanboys who slobbered over female characters, and who figured that having a 2D girl that obeyed your every whim and had no voice as your own personal fuckdoll would be pretty damned sweet.
In other words, they wanted a placid, soulless little girl to wank over.
And Anno delivered. Oh, boy, did he deliver.
‘Baby, what’s that banging noise coming from the closet?’ She whispers, kissing my neck. ‘A ghost you punk ass bitch’ I stare at her for 20 minutes.
