This show is really great and then episode 18 happens and suddenly this show is just fucking incredible.
So many great extended shots where Anno just shows a drawing and has only sound progress the scene if that (the end of 4, Rei and Asuka in 22, the end of 24). So many wonderful examples of Anno basically sampling himself (especially in 16, 20, and 22). So many incredible character moments (Katsuragi and Kaji in 15) and so much incredible…
