Day 37/365

Gendo Ikari

From the anime Neon Genesis Evangelion, Gendo Ikari is the leader of NERV which is an organization that is tasked with defending Earth against the Angels. He is the father of Shinji whom he is very distant towards.

Why I like him: He is willing to do ANYTHING to get what he wants which makes him very determined as well.

Why I hate him: He's a jerk to his own son for the wrong reasons. Scroll over for ***SPOILER*** At least he admitted it in the end and regretted it...

Overall: Gendo is another messed up character among even more messed up characters. He adds greatly to the complexity of this story mainly because he is the source of a lot of the problems that are occurring in it.

Gendo's most common pose in the anime.

    For me, it’s either Ristuko or Gendo.
    But the most predictable pick from Evangelion would be the super popular Ayanami Rei 🙂

    Gendo’s greatest asset is the fact that he’s the ‘perfect’ commander. He shows this basically when he kills Toji who’s piloting EVA-03 by turning on Shinji’s dummy plug when Shinji refuses to fight.
