         Summary: In 2001, if you're still a fan of the 1995
         TV anime Shinseiki Evangelion (Neon Genesis
         Evangelion) or its heroine Ayanami Rei (II and III),
         run out and grab this game.
    
         "Boku dake no Ayanami ga, KOKO ni iru."
    
    2.1  1ST IMPRESSION
    
         Disclaimer II: I'm NOT a fan of Ayanami "..." Rei,
         Souryuu Asuka "Anta baka!?" Langley sama, Hayashibara
         Megumi, or Miyamura "Miyamuu" Yuuko (former adult
         video actress). In fact, my Top Three EVA heroines
         are: 1. Maya oneesan, 2. Misato san, and 3. Ritsuko
         san.
    
         Shinseiki Evangelion: Ayanami Ikusei Keikaku for Windows
    ME/2000J/98J/95J is an ikusei game in the same tradition as Princess Maker
    (also by Gainax), Sotsugyou -Graduation-, and Tanjou -Debut- before it.
    Ayanami Ikusei Keikaku is expectedly full-voice. (^_^)
         The game comes on two CD-ROMs and costs about 318 MB to install.
         During the game, the mouse pointer becomes the Spear of Longinus
    (Lancea Longini), not an arrowhead.
         The game has 18 slots for save games. The Album mode has 33 spaces for
    ending CG.
         (AFAIK, the game doesn't necessarily end the same way as the EVA TV
    series or movies ended.)
         The game chara's portraits and event CG are static. Their eyes don't
    blink and their mouths don't move.
    
         *SPOILER ALERT!*
    
         The game begins about the time of the first TV episode, when Ayanami
    (Rei II) is recovering from her injuries.
         The protagonist is a member of NERV and has a teacher's qualification.
    Ritsuko san recommends the protagonist to Gendou, and Gendou assigns the
    protagonist as Ayanami's guidance counsellor (more like "foster father").
    The length of the protagonist's assignment is one year (game time, not real
    time).
         (When the protagonist first meets Ayanami, the player chooses his
    family name and personal name. The player can of course input the
    protagonist's name in JIS characters.
         Again, I lazily input "Shinjou Hayato" in kanji, named after the lucky
    Sotsugyou Crossworld protagonist.)
         Gendou also promotes the protagonist to San'i (equivalent to Second
    Lieutenant or military grade O-1), and moves the protagonist's home into a
    flat in Ayanami's mansion (apartment building).
    
         In the main screen, in Ayanami's home, several icons show the current
    date, the current day of the week, and the basic commands.
         The game begins on 2 April, a Sunday.
    
         The basic commands are:
    
         - Status. The player checks the current values of Ayanami's 11
    parameters, displayed as bar graphs and numbers.
         (More about the parameters later.)
    
         - Talk. The protagonist speaks with Ayanami.
    
         - System. The player can load game, save game, and quit game.
    
         - Town. Ayanami and the protagonist go to downtown Tokyo-3, where, for
    example, they can buy items from the shops, or take a walk in the park, or
    find out what's the movie of the month at the cinema.
         The shops in Tokyo-3 have real names, such as Matsumoto Tsuyoshi (drug
    store), Tokyu Hands (department store), Tsutaya (book store), and Animate
    (anti-social, Wotaku goods).
         (Gainax evidently secured corporate sponsorships for this game.)
    
         - Goods. The protagonist checks the items (including clothing) Ayanami
    and he have.
    
         - Dress. The protagonist checks the clothing Ayanami has, and changes
    the clothing she wears. After they buy a new dress, Ayanami may decline to
    wear it (and AFAIK the protagonist can't force her to wear it).
         (FYI, their initial items are Ayanami's school uniform and 20,000 Yen.
    At the Animate, a China dress (^_^) costs 50,000 Yen, a bunny suit costs
    30,000 Yen, and a Nekomimi (cat ears suit, as seen in the July 2001 issue of
    Animedia) costs 30,000 Yen.)
    
         - Schedule. Before each week, the protagonist designates Ayanami's
    tasks on each day of the coming week.
         (More about the available tasks later.)
