First Lieutenant Shigeru Aoba (青葉 シゲル[?]) is one of the three main computer technicians at NERV Headquarters, along with Makoto Hyuga and Maya Ibuki.

ProfileEdit

Aoba is an avid guitar player, and has been seen carrying a guitar case when in civilian life (Episode 11). Even in NERV Headquarters, Aoba has been seen to play air guitar when he is not on duty, as well as read guitar magazines.

Aoba is a bit of a nihilist and a little cynical, scoffing at Maya Ibuki's absolute faith in the technology of the age (11, again), and having no second thoughts about firing on JSSDF soldiers in Episode 25'. But he gets along well with his co-workers.

Reiaoba

Aoba before his death.

During Third Impact, the transition guides appeared to everyone around the world as a person they loved or trusted, their touch transforming the person into LCL. Aoba, however, experienced only a horde of naked Rei Ayanami, from which he cowered under his desk until he was touched, implying that there was no one that Aoba truly loved or trusted. The fact that the Reis are giggling insanely may imply that they are the destroyed Tank Reis from the Dummy Plug Plant, but it is doubtful that Aoba knew of their existence, and he certainly isn't taking comfort in their appearance.

Rebuild of EvangelionEdit

In the first two Rebuild of Evangelion movies, the story of Aoba is the same as the original series with minor changes in 2.0. In 3.0 Aoba is now fighting NERV alongside his colleagues under the command of Misato Katsuragi aboard the AAA Wunder, he manifests a grudge against Shinji the first time he sees him after the fourteen years timeskip following the Near Third Impact.

In other mediaEdit

Neon Genesis Evangelion -ANIMA-Edit

In ANIMA, Aoba is in the combat control section of the newly formed NERV JAPAN.

NotesEdit

  • His surname comes from the name of the Aoba class heavy cruiser.[1]
  • Aoba's personal name, "Shigeru", makes his full name the same sound similar to Aoba Shigereru, a movie directed by Kihachi Okamoto, which was intentional.
