There are so, so many things wrong with that group picture. It's even more comically erroneous than all of those Asuka + Rei pictures that are always done. But to think that Gendo--of all people--is shilling a product, much less being used at all for such promotional purposes…

He should've been doing the Gendou pose. While shilling it. That would've been hilarious.

I dunno, it just feels like Evangelion should be used to hock straight razors. Y'know, something that you could really cut yourself with.

*snicker... giggle... snicker*

Have we, uh, ever seen Gendo this ridonkulously happy looking before? Because this is so... so...

The message seems to be "Buy our razors and you'll have all the jailbait you could want!"

I can't wait for "Evangelion: The Flamethrower". At least the series *had* actual flamethrowers at one point.

Oh, god I laughed out loud at that one. That was genius.

That's the best part, it's an ad where they are clearly having some self aware fun at the nature of Gendo.

"There's a reason you can't see my pants!"


Really, that's the only explanation I have for it. Either that or somebody fed him some "special" brownies(or maybe both!).

Seeing Gendo smiling in that way is just all too many kinds of disturbing. I don't think that I will sleep for a whole week now.

That is the face of a bored man who has discovered a shiny new fetish. It's only Monday, and I already need a good brain scrub.

I haven't seen the remake movies, just read about them. Which of the two, Ryouji Kaji or Ikari Gendo, does Mari-Sue Illustrious have a crush on?
