Neon Genesis Evangelion ((新世紀エヴァンゲリオン Shin Seiki Evangerion translated as "Gospel of a New Era") is an apocalyptic science fiction mecha anime created by the anime studio Gainax that was both ground-breaking and a huge critical success when it first aired in 1995.
The Evangelion fandom is often abbreviated into NGE, or Eva.
One of the most popular pairing seems to be the slash ship Kawoshin (Kaworu x Shinji), with Tojishin (Shinji x Toji) being the second most favored slash ship. Popular het ships are Asushin (Asuka x Shinji) and Shinrei (Shinji x Rei).
Popular femslash includes Asurei (Asuka x Rei) and Asumari (Asuka x Mari). On sites such as Pixiv it can be seen that Asumari is overtaking Asushin as the dominant Asuka ship. A femslash ship that can be considered semi-canonical is Ritsumaya (Ritsuko x Maya). However, in general there is a distinct lack of femslash in the fandom.
Slightly popular crack ships are Kawoasu (Kaworu x Asuka) and Kaworei (Kaworu x Rei), even though Kaworu is never shown to have interest in women.
The Archive of Our Own shows that almost all fic there is Kawoshin. Examining FanFiction.Net reveals that other ships can be found in far greater numbers, though their fandom is very inactive. Most of the fics are either Gen or Het.
