Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion

Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion ★★★★★

I’ve always sort of appreciated anime from a distance and in watching the series over the past couple days, I’ve been thinking a lot about what excites me about the medium and what turns me off about it.

The series is pretty good as it starts off and becomes exponentially better from episodes 18-24 after Suzuhara’s battle. Before that, it seemed to confirm what I thought before in that anime series just have way too much stuff.

Now End of Eva is really unlike anything I’ve ever seen and the perfect culmination of the series. I wish I skipped episodes 25 & 26 (that pep talk and “congratulations” stuff is BS) and gone straight into this. Transcendent stuff. Something to be experienced. Definitely revisiting soon.
