The most powerful giant robot in all of anime.
Just feast your eyes on the 1980 TV series Space Runaway Ideon. A particurly brutal invention from Gundam mastermind Yoshiyuki Tomino, the ideon was apparently capable of cutting a whole planet in half and, for an encore, destroying the entire universe.

Okay, seriously, your bumping your own thread every hour which is a duplicate. Not to mention double posting.

There are also a lot of flaws in your trivia. Astro Boy is only thought of as the first anime TV SERIES. Three tales was a special. After that, it was actually Manga Calendar that was the first anime TV series. Astro Boy still remains to be the first anime with an ongoing plot.

Also, waderer does play actually have a point in the meaning of Rurouni. Ru is to wander and ronin. This creates the neologism Rurouni.

Your not completely wrong, but the wording is off and may confuse some.

well i apologize for what i have done my bad...
with regards in what you written here
here's my clarification before they decided to locked this thread:
First: I did mention that Astro Boy was only thought by many as the first anime.
Second: Officially, Three Tales is the first anime broadcast, on air (see wiki).
Third: My point is, the word Rorouni really never existed prior to the released of the anime or manga Rurouni Kenshin.
any other question, just pm me

The following are names of Zaft Warhips:
Vesalius -named after Andreas Vesalius (Brussels, December 31, 1514 - Zakynthos, October 15, 1564) was an anatomist, physician, and author of one of the most influential books on human anatomy, De humani corporis fabrica (On the Fabric of the Human Body).
Gamow -named after George Gamow (pronounced as IPA: [ˈɡamof]) (March 4, 1904 – August 19, 1968) , born Georgiy Antonovich Gamov (Георгий Антонович Гамов), was a Ukrainian born theoretical physicist and cosmologist.
Lesseps -named after Ferdinand Marie, vicomte de Lesseps (November 19, 1805–December 7, 1894) was the French developer of the Suez Canal, which joined the Mediterranean and Red Seas for the first time in 1869, and substantially reduced sailing distances and times between the West and the East.
Petrie -named after Thomas Petrie (1831-1910), explorer, grazier and friend of Aboriginals
Cousteau -named after Jacque-Yves Cousteau (15 June 1908 – 15 January 1997) was a French naval officer, explorer, ecologist, filmmaker, scientist, photographer and researcher who studied the sea and all forms of life in water. He co-developed the aqua-lung, pioneered marine conservation and was a member of the Académie française.

Those names after are just my assumptions.

Both Asuka Langley Soryu and Dr. Ritsuko Akagi Have the last names of WWII aircraft carriers. The Soryu and Akagi were the japanese, while the Langley was an American carrier. To go even deeper, Asuka's mother's middle name is Zeppelin, in refference to the giant Airships of the early 1930's. This some what suggests Asuka has 3 true nationalities. American, German, and Japanese. Though this is just fan based speculation, not just mine.

Now, my turn. Try and get these... if you can. They're all from my favorite anime, Neon Genesis Evangelion.

1. What day was Asuka born on? Where exactly? (City, Country).
2. What song are the children,(Asuka, Rei, Shinji, and Kaworu), playing at the start of Death and Rebirth?
3. Whats Asuka's bloodtype? Whats Shinji's?
4. What are Shinji and Asuka supposed to represent at the very end of Evangelion?
5. What body part of lilith is the last to regenerate?
6. What does Gendo Ikari say to Ritsuko, just prior to him murdering her? (I finally know!)
7. What is NERV? (Think language).
8. When is the only time the progressive axe used? Who uses it?
9. What does Neon Genesis Evangelion translate to?
10. True or false, Asuka is choked by Shinji? (Think Very Carefully.)

Enjoy rotting your brains. I already have the answers to these ?s and more.


... dun know most of them.

I believe that the children played "Kanon in D" by Pachebel; I saw that video. Wonder how Asuka felt about being 2nd violin to Kaworu? (shot)

Shinji and Asuka represent Adam and Eve, ne?

Blood types... I think mebbe Shinji is A and Asuke is B or O? Not sure.

NERV means brain, I think. Or maybe that was GEHREIN (or whatever) that was the organization's old name.

No... it probably was a hallucination that made Shinji think he was choking Asuka. I haven't seen that part yet. (shot again)

2. Correct. I don't know why they gave Asuka second chair. She's always number one.
3. Correct on Shinji and Asuka's is O.
4. Correct. Though, it isn't ever actually stated anywhere. Its mostly just bait for fan fic writers, 'cough cough'.
7. Nerv is simply German for Nerve. Really nothing to flashy about it. Nerv was actually first run in Germany, then switched to Japan as well, replacing the nameplate, Gehirn.
10. Correct, kinda. The real Shinji goes through instrumentality and ends up trying to destroy all of the dark memories of his twisted past, in a dispicable way. When the Asuka in Shinji's syche curses him and shoves him down, it's symbolic of all of the sad truths coming to Shinji's attention. When he tries to choke her, it symbolizes the boy's last attempt to get away from them and erase them for good. In the end of the final chapter, Shinji tries to do the same to the real Asuka, after instrumentality, on the white sand beach. After Asuka touches his cheek, it brings him back to the realization that she was real, and not the imaginary mass of frustration that lies locked away inside his mind.

Good job for someone's first crack at this quiz. Hope to here more answers from more people. Thank you.
