[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5999251/1/The_bReprint_b_and_Repackaging_of_Evangelion The Reprint and Repackaging of Evangelion]] is a parody/humor fanfiction written by Marik Kurakashi and hosted on Fanfiction.net. It is currently in progress.

The story is yet another AlternateUniverse retelling of the series, featuring a fast-talking and smart-mouthed Shinji that is called upon by Gendo to pilot Evangelion Unit-01. What happens when he's ordered to actually pilot, however, deviates from the norm in a big way and [[AffectionateParody sets the tone for the rest of the story]].

This fic can be very hard to take seriously at times, but also has moments of genuine emotional depth. Overall, it is surprisingly enjoyable despite its odd nature (even compared to most NGE fiction).

----
!!'''This fanfic contains examples of:'''

* AffectionateParody: No time is wasted in the story to make fun of anything and everything, even itself.
* AlasPoorVillain: In-universe with [[spoiler: Iruel and Leliel. Yes, both of them]].
* AllWomenAreLustful: You know things are out of control when Asuka has a more restrained libido than Rei for pete's sake.
* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: The entire cast gets elements revamped into various new personalities.
* TheAtoner: Gendo grew a conscience after Yui's death in this fic, and he feels genuinely bad about sending Shinji away.
* AuthorAppeal: Rather obvious with the not-so-subtext in the fic.
* BigGood: This seems to be Gendo and Fuyutski's role in this story.
* TheCameo: Leeron and Leite from GurrenLagann work for NERV's weapons division
** Simon's an intern, Yoko works for the JSSDF, Kamina's got a city job, and [[GunBuster Kazumi's taking care of Noriko]]
** [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} Games Workshop]] exists as an island
** Chapter 16 brings us a cameo from [[GirlfriendOfSteel Mana Kirishima]] and [[ShinjiIkariRaisingProject The back up bridge crew.]]
** [[Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt Gendo created Panty and Stocking, and is apparently on speaking terms with Garterbelt]]
* [[spoiler: CerebusSyndrome: The story hasn't gotten ''darker'', and the humour is still present, but with some of the most recent Angels - namely, Iruel and Leliel - being depicted in an more AntiVillain light, the Angels are being treated less as joke villains and more sympathetically, giving this story genuine TearJerker moments. Averted with [[LargeHam Bardiel]], however. [[KnightOfCerebus Zeruel]] is amping it up even ''more'' since he's being established as the first Angel who is a credible, ''genuine'' threat. Hoo, boy ...]]
* ChainsawGood: The double bladed chainsaw sword used by Rei in 12
* CloningBlues: Subtle, but there. A lot of Rei's mental issues stem from being a clone, the death of the first Rei, and who she was cloned from. And not necessarily in that order.
* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Gendo's RousingSpeech, in part because it's so unexpected, and in part because ... [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin well, it's awesome]].
* CrowningMomentOfFunny: "In retrospect, I could of always gotten a second job."
** Shinji's reaction to Rei's sudden appearance in chapter 7
* DeadpanSnarker: Shinji
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: The Narrator - during the SEELE scene in Chapter 17 - and Bardiel.
* EyeScream: [[spoiler: Zeruel takes a prog knife right in the ol' eye ball.]]
* AGodAmI: Rei snaps and proclaims "I am the closest thing to God these humans will ever know." after Shinji blows her off. She calms down.
* TheHeart: Asuka's role is to be the one who understands and empathizes with the opponents even more than the other two.
* HeroicBSOD: The pilots have one after [[spoiler: the confrontation with Leliel.]]
* [[spoiler: HeroicSacrifice: Leliel has Shinji destroy her so that the Children won't end up in a different world from their own]]
* HurricaneOfEuphemisms: Maya colorfully shoots down Aoba in 15
* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: Every chapter title is a song lyric
* [[spoiler: IJustWantToHaveFriends: Leliel]].
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: Many of the Angels are so pathetic that it's hard not to feel a little sorry for them when they inevitably get their asses handed to them by the pilots. [[spoiler: Iruel and Leliel's deaths are definite TearJerker material]].
** However, this has been subverted with [[spoiler: Zeruel, so far.]]
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Shinji's still a hero, but ''man oh man'' is he touchy. Still better than [[EmoTeen canon]].
* [[spoiler: KnightOfCerebus]]: Zeruel.
* LargeHam: Bardiel
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: Bardiel, again.
* LemonyNarrator: The descriptive prose gets off track at times.
* NoodleIncident: "November 13th, freshman year."
* PowerTrio: The Eva Pilots of course
* RousingSpeech: Delivered by Gendo in chapter 7
* ShipTease: The story can't decide on Shinji/Asuka or Shinji/Rei, and so chooses to tease both.
* ShoutOut: Lots and lots of shouts
** AT-fields are [[TheLuciferAndBiscuitHammer Domain Control]]
** Shinji and Asuka defeat an Angel with the [[{{Kinnikuman}} Cross Bomber]]
** Shinji and Asuka, along with Kensuke, Hikari, Touji, and Rei, watch a [[{{Change123}} Kamen Raider movie]]
** [[spoiler: [[Series/DoctorWho Iruel and Asuka are afraid]] ]]
** Also, there was a double feature movie based on the Horus Heresy and Gaunt's Ghosts.
** No mention of NERV being [[{{Wolverine}} the best at what they do?]] [[ImageBoards Shinji am disappoint]]
** Shinji is in despair! This romantic comedy bit [[SayonaraZetsubouSensei has left him in despair!]]
* SingleStrokeBattle: The finals showdown with Ramiel is this.
* TearJerker: [[spoiler: Iruel's death, in so much that he came into his fight with knowledge he'd die. He faces his death without a single regret.]]
** Also done with [[spoiler: Leliel's death. Her personality is that of a sweet girl roughly the pilots' age, and she pulls a HeroicSacrifice to get them back home from her dimension.]]
* TheTease: Asuka towards Shinji
* ThisIsADrill: Shinji uses a giant arm drill against Sandalphon.
* {{Tsundere}}: Rei has a few elements of this. Justified in Chapter 5, where Gendo reveals that Shinji probably awoke Yui's teenaged personality. Since Rei suggesting a fate more violent for Ramiel then Shinji's suggestion of spamming [[WeaponOfMassDestruction N2 mines]] was the proof he needed, this is probably not a good thing.
* TheUnfought: [[spoiler: Bardiel. And it is [[CrowningMomentOfFunny HILARIOUS]]!]]
* [[spoiler: WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: After meeting and talking to Leliel, the pilots start to question whether the other Angels were actually decent individuals who they could have befriended. Also done with Iruel, but to a somewhat lesser extent]].

* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Shinji and Asuka using wrestling moves to beat Israfel.
