Neon Genesis Evangelion isn't for everyone. If you like a good story that is challenging to comprehend, then I recommend you check this one out. But if you like things in black and white, this isn't going to be your cup of tea. It's a good anime, but if it had been a bit easier to understand, it could have been even more succesful than it already is.
Another favorite series of mine that I put amongst my top 10, Evangelion was a compelling series full of human drama and moments that would make anyone laugh( especially PenPen related moments-the look on his face after eating Misato's instant cooking was classic) and the Eva battles were a sight to behold, and a great cast of seiyuu and a decent dub(I enjoyed Amanda Winn Lee's performance as Rei). Evangelion TV is a classic piece of an an anime masterpiece. I don't really care for the Rebuilds though, especially with all the OOC moments and the liberties taken from the original story and developing it into something that is facepalm-worthy. I hate that the Rebuilds changed Asuka's surname, Sohryu is better suited for her. So, I am reflecting my score on the original series and the EoE only...for the Rebuilds are a disappointment to me.
NGE, End of Evangelion, Death and Rebirth of Evangelion, NGE: Angelic Days (manga)
There is just so much to NGE universe and it is very unique in a lot of ways. Shinji always seemed like too much of a wuss in the movies and original series. Rei was cute, but rather unemotional. Though her depiction in Angelic Days is a refreshing twist to her character. Asuka is head strong, but overconfident. Her and Masato are the favs from the movies and original series. : )
I thought it'll be an epic anime with all the people talking about it on the net and all the high ratings it got but for me it was quite a disappointment. Though Rei ayanami was the only reason I watched the anime.
Simply is EVANGELION, in all its fury and structured an almost perfect story, with excellent graphics and soundtrack,
from NEON GENESIS EVANGELION with their current films to Rebuild of Evangelion.
I saw NEON GENESIS EVANGELION, along with both movies that are DEATH AND REBIRTH and THE END OF EVANGELION seen equally Rebuild of EVANGELION from 1.11 to 3.33 and I'm looking forward to its end.
KAWORU NAGISA: This is my wish: please, destroy me. Otherwise, you will be destroyed. Only one life-form can be chose to evade the destruction and seize the future! And you are not the existence which should die. You need the future, it's what you live for!
If you like mech anime then this is the show of choice for you. One of the first animes I had seen or started with was this and I really liked it and quite enjoyed the series, but it's hard to remember much about it, since it's been years since I have watched it.
Hummm, I dont really understand this anime. I watched it because my friend recomended it. Its very complicated stories. Each characters have their own issues. Not much humor on it. Its more into angst.
This mind-crippling anime (that I feared very much during childhood) is my favorite anime of all time starting since 2006. You can get a bunch of mind-blowing stuffs in its storyline. Many religious references also made it so special. In short, this series is so legendary.
My favorite show of all time!!! There's so much that can be said about this show; great character development, crazy psychological issues,giant robots!!! This show makes you truly feel connected to the characters and makes you feel for them. This show not only goes into the personal issues of the characters but it also gets into religion and philosophy. Again, hands down my favorite anime OF ALL TIME. i give it the highest recommendation you can give. (warning: this show can get very depressing but it DOES NOT take away from the experience you get from watching this anime).
ps: Asuka fan for life!!!!!!
One of the best animes out there. The story may be hard to follow for a lot of people but they should not give up. It is crucial to pay close attention to every detail given, especially towards the end.
I can't believe I never added that awesome anime (and manga) to my watchlist... Is there really anything to add about this masterpiece that everyone knows already? Let's try anyway. It's one of my favorite anime ever because: the characters are all unique and interesting, and not only the main ones and I liked that; the plot is complicated and full of details making you wonder about your existence and I like when an anime makes you think about yourself; the hero isn't one, he is a human who can fail like everyone else, he has weakness and he is far from perfect. Evangelion is just an anime everyone must see one day!
A monster among anime giants! The first time I ever watched was at a friends house and we spent the entire night
watching the entire series in one go because we just could not put it away.
Great characters, awesome battles, superb setting, and a very intriguing plot that can keep you coming back for more until the end! There isn't much here not to love here, a must watch for any anime fan!
The series took some time to grow on me, but overall, I enjoyed it in the end. The second time I watched Evangelion, I was paying more attention to the charcters themselves and their relationships, and then I started to love it. I've seen "Death and Rebirth of Evangelion" and "The End of Evangelion", too. I've finally seen the "Rebuild of Evangelion" movies, and I plan to watch the third and fourth one as well, when they will come out.
This is THE most absolutely jaw-dropping anime I have ever seen. The first time I watched the whole thing (which I haven't been able to do again) I got completely depressed. I'm serious. I got so depressed that I just laid in bed for about an hour. It was so shocking.
An epic series and very touching to me. My most fav anime ever. I feel a lot of things from it despite its complexity.
Their recent movies were interesting too.
I own the re-made Evangelion 1.0 and 2.0 on dvd and I love them. They have a spectacular CG touch to them, and the action is awesome.
