Trivia: Shinji Ikari Raising Project
- Cash Cow Franchise: Seriously, Gainax, what next?
- Fan Nickname: Some angry Eva fans have nicknamed this Rei "RIAO" - Rei In Appearance Only.
- Promoted Fanboy: The mangaka, Osamu Takahashi. One of his first author's comments mentions that he can't believe he's drawing Eva.
- Running the Asylum: This manga is quite obviously done by, as mentioned above, a Promoted Fanboy and is entirely powered by Mythology Gag and Fanservice.
