Taiwanese Politician Campaigned as Evangelion’s Asuka

While we’ve covered nerdy politicians here on Nicchiban and on Niche Gamer, a legislative candidate for the upcoming elections in Taiwan has stolen the spotlight.

Lai Pin-yu has been campaigning heavily with vice presidential candidate William Lai for a seat as a Democratic Progressive Party legislative candidate.

The duo has been making appearances at markets, temples, and more, however Pin-yu’s appearance at the Taiwan Grand Triumph concert has catapulted her into internet stardom.

Pin-yu cosplayed as Asuka Langley Soryu from the classic Gainax anime series Neon Genesis Evangelion. This is not the first time Pin-yu has cosplayed since getting into politics, and will likely not be the last either. Here’s some more photos from the event:

Pin-yu has also cosplayed as Rei Ayanami (also from Evangelion), Sailor Mars (from Sailor Moon), and more. She actually cosplayed as Sailor Mars for one of the event’s promo posters:

Pin-yu is campaigning for a seat in New Taipei City’s 12th electoral district, against Chinese Nationalist Party candidate Lee Yong-ping. The incumbent, New Power Party’s former executive chairman Huang Kuo-chang, is not seeking re-election.

    That’s… pretty odd to be honest.

      she’d probably respectfully ‘pull out’ of the campaign, while expertly finishing up a greasy and messy footjob with me – SUCKA!!

    Whilst kinda odd, this seems like a rather harmless thing to do.

    Taiwan, Hong Kong, Tibet, and any other area occupied by the parasite that is China must be liberated. Heck, even mainland China must be liberated from its government.
    Make a few communist heads roll and everything will be saved.

    Don’t ask what your country can do for you. Ask only how to get Shinji into the robot
