Aw, Those Dysfunctional Eva Kids Will Get You Coffee

And if they don't, you can probably sue Banpresto. Right?

Yes, according to this ad, a new set of SD Evangelion characters will, in fact, brew you a pot of coffee if you're having trouble waking up in the morning. And I'm pretty sure that if they don't, you can sue Banpresto for false advertising.
  
  
...Okay, jokes aside, these figures are adorable. Also being advertised are EVA unit figures and some coffee mugs-- and once again, I LOVE the chibi mug, which has Rei, Asuka, and Mari Makinami running. Adorably. Awww.

    



    

Hope that cute-ed up your morning a bit! (Via Kotaku.)  How are you doing today?

I'm a zombie in the morning and I need that cute mug on the right.

I don't get it, don't we all have our figurines help us with our housework? So what's so strange about them bringing us coffee in the morning? 
 
I'm such a bad cook, I'd never manage without them.

I could think of a couple other fun uses i would have if my anime figurines came to life and started to do things for me, besides just getting me a coffee.....
 
Like cleaning my cats kitty litter! GOD i hate doing that. What? What did you think i was talking about?

I would be doing much better today if I had that chibi Gendo. Just look at him standing there plotting teeny tiny doom. Adorable!

It's such a super adorable commercial! The chibi mug is as well. :3

A) You would be Gendo, I should have guessed.
B) While I will not challenge his adorability, I question if one could say he even plotted doom. Like, besides being a negligent father and exploiting the hard work of everyone for a selfish dream to see his wife again... I wouldn't say he was a bad guy.

It was an alright day, the anime club at my university met tonight (I just got back, it started at 5pm EST and is now midnight) and tomorrow I'm heading back home since it is reading week (one week break) although most of that will be spent studying for two midterms the first and second day back and another a week after that.
