Freaking fantastic episode. Asuka has breathed new life into Evangelion. To many great scenes in this episode. The music fight scene was badass.

Hilarious episode, can't blame Shinji for trying to kiss Asuka. XD

But what was Asuka talking about when she was sleeping? Something about her mom?

Loved the battle. Asuka and Shinji's bickering is amusing. =3

Asuka is really hot, goddamn. The near kiss scene was awesome. Great episode overall.

Asuka is the most annoying character right now, but that ballet fight was pure win.

I don't really understand why everyone likes Asuka so much. She's a good addition to the show but she's still a bitch and, in my opinion, not a very likable character.

Why was it Shinji's fault that Asuka got mad? He still had his headphones on for f***s sake!

Synchronized fighting at the end was pretty interesting and one of the better fights so far.

Very enjoyable episode imo, and Asuka is full of win as usual. Never really thought about why I like her, I guess it's because she can act like a bitch... we all know that won't last long.

The music battle scene in my opinion was a bit lame, even though, funny.
The whole episode was funny, especially their arguing at the end.

But I still find Asuka annoying.
I prefer Rei.

Aww Asuka and Shinji are funny, the kiss scene was cute :)

However that mecha ballet dance was one of the silliest things I've ever seen, and I watched FLCL so I believe I can make a statement on whether something is silly or not :P

WTF XD Asuka's hologram manage to punch Shinji in the head XD

Asuka certainly brought more laughter and comedy into the show ^_^

Seriously this episode was outstanding and excellent. Not only it proved that Evangelions's awesomeness increases when working together, it also proved that Shinji and Asuka has a chance to be a great couple. I mean the quarrel at the end, oh my how I loved Asuka and Shinji back there especially when Asuka was like "l0l0l0l you tried to kiss me while I was sleeping." and Shinji was like "Aw that's mean you were pretending to be sleeping." and Asuka was like "Ohoho I was just testing you, so you did try to kiss me." Lmfao priceless man, priceless. So Rei was the only one needed to make the couple's synchronization perfect.

Oh and I can't leave that elevator scene between Kanji or something and Misato. If that elevator didn't open, they would have made love I could have sworn.

It was fun to watch. Especially Shinji and Asuka arguing in the end of the episode. It was just... awesome :)
I finished this episode with a better impression of Asuka than I had by the end of the previous one but I still think Rei is better.

Funniest episode yet. I was expecting to hate Asuka in this show but my god she and Misato are my favorite female characters as of now. Rei seems to be bland and emotionless. Hope that changes later on.

Shinji has a penis thats why.

They are 14 years old. The one who told Shinji to apologize is also 14 years old.
Very very realistic situation. Teenage female gets angry with the male teen, the male teen eneds to apologize.


Loved this episode.
The ballet.
The synchronized speech.
Shinji and the Penguin being in sync to get to the washroom.
Shinji's friends and the class rep realizing Shini and Asuka live in the same apartment.
The fucking ballet fight.

A perfect mixture of sexual tension, humour, action, and Penguins.

I actually like Asuka because of the fact she's unlikable. Well, that and other things that haven't come into play at this point.

Poor Misato, her feelings being played around with..

And Asuka was kinda annoying in this ep.

If I were in Shinji's position

1)I would have groped Asuka's Breasts when she tried explain about heat expansion.

2)Made love with her all night like there's no tomorrow.

Asuka though arrogant is very sexy and adorable character.

This was the best episode to now, no doubts about it, I liked every bit of it. It made laugh so much, but in the same time we continue to see character build up. Only person who is really worrying me now is Rei - such a emotionless girl... It's not like I don't like her, but more like I wonder where she'll get to with this rate.

That dance was great you say?


LMG Gesu doing circle of death on any assault mech is a lot more impressive sight. Like a million times more.

Wat? You have no clue what I'm talking about? Then it's no wonder you call utter BS "great" and "epic."

Mandalorian Space Marine in a Battletech Mech = overkill.

I think this is my favorite episode of the series. I just realized something re-watching this. Why did they have to wait for the angle to regenerate to attack?

Yeah, my opinion about Asuka changed from this episode out. Before she was just some unbearable brat who made me want to rip my hair out.

Dat sync! Really nice episode I really like the new character, she like a tsundere, maybe we'll see something else later on? That ending was just the best :D

A bit silly.
But, it was entertaining.
I don't know about the dub though.

Lmao this episode was homosexual, heterosexual, bisexual and transexual all at the same time. But still a good episode i guess :P
I don't get why people love the constant bickering though.. sure its funny the first few times but gets annoying at some point. I certainly hope it doesn't continue on like this but I expect to be dissapointed.

Ps: We need more Rei screen-time!

I guess Asuka and Shinji are identical in some way.

Thoughts from episode 09

Haha those Shinji's friends to taking pics of Asuka and stalking her. They should be warned Asuka can be really pain for them :DD

Kaiji wants to get his relationship back with Misato and his using Ritsuko too. Damn he plays with 2 women here. Kaiji is like perfect gentleman LOL When Shinji and Asuka couldn't get "7th Angel" destroyed. Whole NERV was angry haha. Misato getting all paperwork reminds me some scenes when Tsunade get's her work in Naruto.

OMG Shinji was so close to get his first kiss by Girl. Dude why didn't you just do it already. I wonder what Shinji were listening in his mp3 player. Asuka's crying and sleeptalking was sad. I wonder what happened to her mother? Guess we are going to found out that soon. That girl who said to Shinji you can't make girl cry was so right for that thing.

Training part for the battle was funny. Also when they played Twister and switched Tv channels so comedy moments. And those arguments in the end.

Best parts: Shinji's and Asuka's arguments in the end :DD and also that Dancing battle and awesome teamwork with EVA. That was also pretty interesting way to speed animation.

Great episode, Shinji and Asuka just have great chemistry and it really was apparent in this episode. Some great moments here like, of course, the awesome synchronized fight and the almost kiss where Asuka first mentions her mother. Also, the sexual tension between these two is highlighted here.

I wonder how many boners did I get from those Asuka fanservice. And poor Shinji being cockblocked by Asuka's dream.

Best episode to me. ;D

I have a sickness called gettingarousedbyhorieyui'svoice syndrome.
