30 Days of Anime Challenge: Day 18 – Favorite Animal Sidekick, Pet, or Summon

Published August 11, 2017 by GravediggerNALK


Pen Pen, the hyper-intelligent hot-springs penguin, is one of my favorite characters from Neon Genesis Evangelion.  Having been spared from euthanization by Misato, Pen Pen now lives a comfortable life in the apartment he shares with her, Shinji, and Asuka.  He reads the morning paper and takes beer with his breakfast.  He takes hot baths and relaxes in his own custom climate-controlled refrigerator/chamber room thing.  Quite frankly, I don’t think Pen Pen is afraid the Human Instrumentality Project, since he’s not human.  Pen Pen is one of the two characters in Neon Genesis Evangelion that did nothing wrong.
