Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance ★★½

Where the rebuilds start to fall apart. Adding characters (not a crime in and of itself) for the sake of adding them and without justification. Despite a much better arc and characterization of Rei than NGE ever achieved, you never really feel for Asuka in the same way as you do in the series. A quality entry with some flaws that was begging for a strong 3rd/4th entry...
