Gendo Ikari: "Death gives birth to nothing."
Keel Lorenz: "Death is what you shall have."
I've been rewatching NGE, a series that means so much to me. It's one of the greatest works of art in any medium. EoE will forever be Hideaki Anno's Ninth Symphony.
Asuka's brief, triumphant epiphany (leading to her much-lauded titanic battle against the JSSDF and Seele's petrifying harpies) drained yours truly to such a degree that I needed a break before continuing with Episode 26'. She's my favorite character.
I'll be writing something akin to this next time.
