Usually, the whole maid thing appalls me absolutely. But, because it's Evangelion, I'm only a little appalled :]

I have never understood the maid cosplay fetish thing at all; all I know is that Haruhi Suzumiya lampooned it mercilessly. Laughing

I want the Asuka one...

I don't see what's wrong with a maid fetish =(

Although, I'm more attracted to the clothing rather than the actual maid-ness of a maid. (The idea of someone referring to me as "master" is sickening)

Yeah, but is the coffee any bloody good? I usually find that any product that hides behind a popular icon, is total shyte. But I guess the Japanese will eat, or drink just about anything as long as they think it's good. They also probably say the same about us too. Wink

As a connoisseur of pre-packaged coffee drinks, I can assure you that UCC makes a fine can o' coffee. My favorite is still Pokka, but it's hard to go wrong with UCC, self-proclaimed innovators of "canned coffee technology."

Yeah, UCC is tasty. They sell it at a local Japanese market, cheaper than Boss coffee LOL.

Back in September, I grabbed 1 can each of the Shinji, Kaoru and Gendo/Ritsuko cans from the first series... the trinity of girls Rei, Asuka and Misato being long gone of course Laughing

These ought to go in a flash.

UCC coffee isn't bad. I like it personally.

Hmmm, well, I guess the designs look nice.
