I would say that the second half is better...Only because it's "last" last episode of NGE - the surreal imagery, the total destruction of the psyche and the deeper insight into human nature are far more interesting than the exquisite sights and sounds of brutal violence in the first half (which is still incredible since it's still Eva after all)
FROM EVANGELION:
"Acts of Man are greater than acts of God!"

"I'm saying that I love you."

NOT FROM EVANGELION:
"You are excrement. You can change yourself into gold."

Second half for sure..... i've been into eva since I was a young preteen and honestly that second half of EOE taught me a lot of the morals I still hold to this day!! I don't think I would be the same person as I am now without it. That's not to say the first half isn't good, just compared to the surreal imagery and the psychoanalysis of Shinji vs NERV getting buttfucked, the latter is more important to me individually.

If I had to choose?
The second half.

The first half is phenomenal & really narratively devastating. It works perfectly as a wrap up to the narrative of the show.

But that second half.... that second half cuts right to the heart of things & does so in a way that is astonishingly perceptive about the human connection while still exceeding remarkably as a work of visual spectacle!

Looking forward to a few years from now when we've seen it all and this same question can be thrown out about the Rebuilds:
Do you prefer the more narratively cohesive first half (1.0 + 2.0) OR do you prefer the more emotionally cutting/getting to the heart of things second half (3.0 + Final)?
