Is Shinji paid to pilot the EVA? I always wondered this.
Not even 1¥.
He's sponsored by Nerv. They pay for his apartment, food, schooling, ect. the entire series takes place in the Geo Front which is an under gound city entirely controlled by NERV
He gets 'paid' with the opportunity to live with two incredibly hot females.
No, he makes his money through sponsorship deals and merch rights.

> getting paid with housing, food, and sex
What's the point of money?
