I Totally Want To Buy This!

Okay, before we go any further, this is one time I have to admit I'm wrong.  The set-up for this had me convinced it was something I didn't want to see.

First of all, there's the term "moe" (moh-eh).  Ostensibly, it is used to refer to manga and anime characters that employ weapons-grade cute, enough that even Dot Warner would balk, although it also now carries a second connotation as a subset of hentai.  The second is Evangelion.  As I've mentioned, Evangelion has shifted from its original story to a sexual subculture, completely corrupting what it was.  When it was suggested that, as a gag, I should draw Rhapsody and Melody in plugsuits (they are 14 years old), I almost threw up in my mouth a little.

There's a toy line in Japan called Pinky with chibi characters.  The girls are named Kokoro (heart wish) and Moe (see above).  As is common, toys are made reimagining the characters in different outfits.  If the rights can be secured, cosplay isn't unusual.  Well, the makers of Pinky got the rights to put the characters in Evangelion cosplay.  The results are this....

The Pokeballs are not part of the set, it's a gag the photographer threw in.  A gag that works.  The more recent Pokemon episodes from Advanced on, that look does work.  Here's a view from the back....

Oh, come on.  Give how I draw, you just had to know I'd be squeeing over something like this.

Amazing!  Something Evangelion related that you can actually show other people without being mistaken for Roman Polanski!
