An online buddy named Eva Yojimbo recommended the anime to me and I heard about all of the praise and critical acclaim that it got. So I bought the Platinum edition and I was immediately blown away by it’s brilliance. I think NGE is arguably the greatest work of art ever made and it got me into art and literature as a whole.

It's stange that "Evangelion" became such a hit. All the characters are so sick!- Hideaki Anno

This is actually a great story

I was watching a "meme compilation" youtube video but it's like, trumpet sheet music. It's pretty much play along to meme songs and the like, I'm a trumpet player but I usually didn't watch that stuff but I was kind of just killing time. All of a sudden, Zankoku na Tenshi no Teze pops up as one of the songs. Keep in mind, its pretty much just crappy trumpet midi. Regardless, I kinda thought to myself "thats kind of a kickass song. I wonder what it's from!" So I google the song and watch the op.

I watched the entire series, the rest is history. It was my first ever introduction to anime. No regrets :D

A friend who was getting into something esoteric called "AMVs" showed some of us this video, among others:

Clearly these two lovebirds were the couple of my dreams: childhood friends who were both inducted into this cool giant robot army to fight the foes of mankind, and who can't quite admit that they love one another, but really obviously do to everyone else around them.

Yeah, I had no idea.

"Cool robot" was my initial reaction to seeing Eva snippets for the first time, too. Hoq innocent I was :P

Correct. It could hardly be the "I used to love her" one could it?
