Hm... Shinj is really key to the game, sadly. Originally there were three of us and it was going to be a Kaji-Shinji-Asuka game. Shinji in fact is THE lead character in this plot. Bum.

And yes, he's hard to play, though I would hope he'd grow in confidence as a result of his, ahem, experiences in the game.

I'm not looking for the catatonic Shiji that we saw hide under staircases waiting to be shot in "End of..." more like the curious Shinji from the early episodes of the series, the Shinji who tried to talk to Rei and attempt to get on with Asuka (a little) etc.

Frankly, I don't think that sexual expeience would do much to help resolve Shinji's issues.  (although it might help Asuka and perhaps Rei.)  Shinji's problems go deeper than his sexual frustration, and he's unlikely to break out of becoming an entirely passive character just from losing his virginity.  Keep in mind that Asuka's flaw is that she's too insecure in the way she interacts with people and Rei's flaw is that she doesn't interact with people.  Meanwhile, Shinji's problem is that he refuses to interact meaningfully with others, never making an effort to get what he wants and complaining when he doesn't get it. 

The reason for this is the death of his mother and the emotional distance of his father, which led him to conclude that the best way to do things was to give everyone else what they want, since his desires aren't important.  Asuka, in losing her mother, concluded that she had to be the best at everything to have any value, otherwise she would be abandoned and rejected.  Meanwhile, Rei, through dying for the first time, began to believe that she had no desires. 

In other words, Rei needs a hug, Asuka needs to be told to chill out, and Shinji needs a slap in the face.   ;D 


Shinji's head isn't too hard to get into though.  Not nearly as hard as Gendo's anyway.  :)

Um, it's not THAT serious a game.

EDIT: I stole the idea from a fanfic...

Grinninghound and Sabbat were discussed as canidates, but Hound only plays original characters and Sabbat doesn't particularly like anime.

Tyki Mikk is willing to watch the show and try to get the character down.

I prefer original characters with Eva.  The canon ones either need to be smacked senseless (in Shinji's case) or simply have their brains screwed out (like Asuka).  My thoughts on the character's behavior can crop up on another occasion.  :P

I'm going to be blunt every time I've seen an OC character in EVA they kind of scream Mary Sue.  They lack the emotional problems which are necessary to the character,  have military combat training,  and tend to be better pilots then Shinji at the end of the show or Asuka near the beginning.

Hunter! Thank you! Whooo! *insane glompy type hugs* OK, we are good to go. We have no Ritsuko yet but I can NPC her a bit I think. Let me set up some threads and do a main intro post. Actually I'll do the threads now... links in a minute...

Edited after chance to test evil game:

Unfortunately I will most likely have to bow out of this. The evil of all evils, wrath of the lich king WOW expansion has sort of sucked me in, and between juggling with work and having enough time to run the guild, I will be too occupied to offer long and regular enough posts.
