Hi everybody,

I used to belong to this forum waaay back in the day under the name Nukie, I looked at last posted in 2011-a lifetime ago! I've lost that original email so the account is lost forever-but I'm glad to be back :)

Evangelion is one of the most formativ pieces of media for me (I watched it around Shinji et al's age, and really identified with his struggles.) With the announcement that Netflix is beginning to list it later this month, I know that many of my friends/coworkers would enjoy it if given the chance. I just wanted to ask-how would you pitch Eva to someone who might not be familiar with anime? I know all the things I love about it, but I feel like it would take 10 typed pages to get it across!

Just wondering your thoughts-I'd love to have as many people see this amazing show as possible (who would appreciate it, I know its not for everyone!)

Yeah, I'd love to know too. I never managed to convince anyone I know to watch it, lol. I guess there's no recipe for it. Just be aware of people's individual tastes and gauge if they'd enjoy Evangelion? Someone who loves David Lynch, maybe. Or someone who likes animation in general. And then single that person out, sit down with 'em and watch it! :)

I convinced a firend of mine by showing him Another Impact and the english dub version of the Mari vs 3rd Angel fight.
Ended up bingewatching the entire show with him in one go, wasn't the best idea xD
Why don't you save the Princess next time instead of being such a baby? She would love it and maybe you could get a sweet kiss. ~ sadly not Mari in Q (Joseki)
