EvaGeeks.org celebrates its tenth anniversary

By Aaron Clark on Wednesday, October 4th, 2017 in Eva Monkey, Evangelion 3.0+1.0, Fandom, Rebuild of Evangelion.

A little bit over fifteen years ago, I started an ambitious little fan site called Eva Monkey that you may be familiar with.  Through much of my college experience, I spent far too many late nights tinkering with code and generally trying to build the “ultimate” Evangelion fan site, neglecting my studies in the process.  The […]

“I (Don’t) Need You”, an Evangelion Cosplay Music Video

By Aaron Clark on Monday, February 20th, 2017 in AMVs, Cosplay, Fandom, Video.

Cosplay and AMVs are both vibrant subsets of anime fandom, and I feel like cosplay music videos (or CMVs for short) are an overlooked intersection of the two.  It’s not something I seek out, but occasionally I stumble across one, and find it a refreshing break from your typical AMV that sources solely from the […]

Evangelion Chiptune Music by Studio Megaane

By Aaron Clark on Monday, July 11th, 2016 in Fandom, Music.

After spending some time with Andrew’s Evangelion Chiptune album the other day, I did some poking around on YouTube for some other substantial efforts to recreate Evangelion’s iconic themes with lo-fidelity sound chips.  In particular, I came across Studio Megaane, which has done an impressive volume of chiptune renditions, with a strong preferance for mecha anime.  So it […]

Atop The Fourth Wall covers The Shinji Ikari Detective Journal

By Aaron Clark on Thursday, July 31st, 2014 in Fandom, Manga, Shinji Ikari Detective Diary (manga), Video.

Linkara of Atop the Fourth Wall recently performed a live show at Anime Midwest 2014 where he covered the Shinji Ikari Detective Diary.  If you’re unfamiliar with Atop the Fourth Wall, it’s a web show that covers and riffs on comics that are awful in various ways. Now, I haven’t been terribly supportive of Detective […]

Evangelion World Cup Fan Art

By Aaron Clark on Monday, July 14th, 2014 in Fan Art, Fandom.

I’m not a sports guy.  Even the sports that I enjoy I would much rather be playing.  Maybe that’s the video gamer in me at work.  So I wasn’t terribly interested in the World Cup.  But, somehow, the internet has found a way to make it relevant to me.  As you may know, Germany won […]

A Human Work, a free Evangelion concept album

By Aaron Clark on Friday, February 14th, 2014 in Audio, Fandom, Music.

I really enjoy seeing fan-produced concept and tribute music dedicated to Evangelion.  It’s interesting to see how people take a (predominantly) visual medium like animation and break it apart and reinterpret it through an aural medium like music.  In this case, we have an ambient concept album called “A Human Work” by Kyle Edwards.  Through […]

Evangelion University, Live Action Webseries Pilot

By Aaron Clark on Thursday, February 13th, 2014 in Fandom, Video.

Brendan Steere, a filmmaker in New York, recently released a short pilot for a live action Evangelion webseries called Evangelion University.  The show strips the Evas, Angels, and general sci-fi elements out, and re-imagines it as a 90s-era college dramedy.  If someone were to pitch you that concept, you would probably be pessimistic like I […]

AMV Spotlight: ErMac Studios

By Aaron Clark on Monday, December 16th, 2013 in AMVs, Fandom, Music, Video.

I’ve been spending some of my time lately going through and organizing my Eva files, and while I was looking through my archive of AMVs, one editor stood out that I felt like highlighting.  Justin Emerson, who went by ErMaC, has been out of the AMV circle for close to a decade.  When he retired, […]

End of Evangelion audio commentary with Rocco and Garrett of Mega64

By Aaron Clark on Wednesday, November 27th, 2013 in Audio, Fandom.

I’ve been a fan of Mega64 for a number of years now, and I’ve noticed and enjoyed that some of them are also fans of Evangelion.  Whether it’s Garrett hosting a spoilercast for Evangelion 3.33, Rocco vlogging about his Evangelion figures, or Shawn getting fed up with Evangelion and losing his shit, I always enjoy […]
