I’ve been a fan of Evangelion for more than a decade, although I don’t think I’ve managed to seen the full series and movies during all that time. I just happened to like the characters (Asuka, Ayanami Rei, and the Evas).
On the other side, I also like collecting some hard-to-find things: art books, anime figures, and lately, some anime garage kit.
The little figure above is a garage kit of Rei Ayanami sculpted by the amazingly talented Ishinaga Sakurako. There’s something about that figure that I liked since the first time I saw an image of it in some random site, a couple of years ago. So, it’s been a bit more than two years that I’ve been trying to find and buy it, but it’s impossible to find. I found one a few days ago at yahoo auctions, but I lost my chance because it was a bit more expensive than what I was able to pay at that time.
I’m frustrated, but I’m not losing hope. The only reason I’m writing this post is that maybe, just maybe, there’s someone out there that has this little figure, and is willing to let it go. I want it.
