Kensuke: Toji, speak! Hey!
Toji: Ikari, I'm sorry that I punched you twice. Hit me, please!
Shinji: I can't do that.
Toji: Please. Otherwise, I'm not satisfied.
Kensuke: Well, he is an embarrassing guy like this. So, if it finally puts an end to the fight, how about punching him?
Forgive me for the fact that the text I quoted above has little to do with the photo, but it was during that part of the series that I started appreciating Toji's character.
Toji's first encounter with Shinji Ikari is not a pleasant one, for his sister was buried under a heap of rubble during an Angel attack. She escaped death, but he blamed her injury on the incompetence of the Eva pilot. Toji discovers that the transfer student Shinji was the pilot and beats him up in order to feel better about himself, and his inability to save his sister at the time. However, he changes his view of Shinji after experiencing an Angel attack firsthand and riding in EVA Unit-01, rescued by a selfless Shinji who suffers on his behalf.
Miguel as Toji Suzuhara
(Who can barely be considered as cosplaying here but it's not his fault he naturally resembles Toji. I mean, look at Toji: [link] [link] All that Miguel really needed was the right jacket, haha.)
