The second half of Evangelion sucked and still does. The first half was a good, kickass mecha show like it's supposed to be, but the second half of it sucked, made it plot driven rather than episodic, which was better and the characters just broke down. The animation was awful in the from 18-26, the voice acting sucked, though a few characters sounded awesome and the show was not as good as episodes 1-17. 18 was so bad that it effected the show as a whole. The religious iconography was stupid and there only for show. Oh and that ending is one big cop out and poorly written.

I like Evangelion, but I hate it as well.
Target confirmed!

Me: Shinji is cute, I'll watch it, it's just giant robots, right?
First few episodes, interesting, hedgehog's dilemma, I can relate to Shinji and Rei. Misato, oh my god, it's Usagi-chan! :D

Kensuke's quote: Only an idiot fights when he knows can't win, balls have nothing to do with it. :lol:

Next few episodes, meh.

8, 9, 10: Asuka's here, yay! You rock for charging Toji 100 yen for fanservice. :lol: Nine, favorite episode, just nonstop laughs, Asuka and Shinji at their finest.

Ten, Asuka: If I were to warm my breasts up do you think they'd get a little bigger? Shinji, I love you, but listen to Asuka.

11,12, 13, 14, forgot these, but the computer angel was cool.

15-20 The turning point, I loved Asuka's I should never kiss to kill time, that kiss scene. Fights more gruesome, Misato and Kaji's sex dialogue.

21-26:
21: Nice to see a backstory.
22: Poor Asuka.
23: Rei's a clone?!
24: Stupid kaworu, leave Shinji-kun alone!
25 and 26: WTF, did I just watch? And Congratulations! ^_^

End of Evangelion: What the Hell is?! GNR is creepy. Kimochi Warui.

My reaction in general : 0_0 holy fuck those robots are awesome I wonder what the enemies lo-wait did they just say their fighting angels? ANGELS!??! oh hell yes*

Actually watching the series

Aww poor Shinji he has to live with this woman he just met because his father doesn't want him around, wow I can actually feel for this guy.

Theirs Rei I was-wait why is she...if she was...MY BRAIN HURTS she's still cute though.

Wow these angles are pure awesome a giant shark like monster, cool. Lol Asuka is hilarious she may be kind of a bitch but she's cute and funny
Lol did they just rip off jaws

Skip all the way to when Shinji is tearing out of I want to say lileil put I'm almost certain that's wrong, wow Shinji is just wow, I think THAT was overkill.

Skip to when Kaworu got killed: Sorry was I suppose to care that this monster was killed, I mean sorry Shinji that you had to kill your "friend" but seriously.

Last actual episode reaction: what the, that was really a bad ending.

After End of Evangelion: Now that's what I call an ending sorry you guys all had to like you know die but still, wait hold on did Shinji just- NO! He didn't he didn't he didn't! But he did.

* first exposure to Eva was a promo for 2.22 on Toonami and then watching said film[/list]

My first thoughts after watching EoTV and EoE?

Holy crap that was tragic and sad.
How can I feel so bad about cartoon characters?
I don't think I'll be watching that again until I'm in a happier point in my life.
I watched the Neon Genesis Evangelion TV show and films for the 1st time in January 2014. Heartbreakingly sad but so beautiful too. I'm here to discuss theories about what happened in the show.

I felt like this series was made for me.
Funny scenes, sad scenes, there was no moment where I thought "a person wouldn't act like that, bad writing", the mystery surrounding the angels, awesome action scenes, perfect. 10/10

Also agree 100% with Justacrazyguy.
Shinji: "Sooner or later I'll be betrayed... And they'll leave me. Still... I want to meet them again, because I believe my feelings at that time were real."
Ryuko: "I'm gonna knock ya on your asses!"
-Asuka: THINK IN GERMAN!!! -Shinji: Öh... Baumkuchen...

Why thank you, milady. :hikari_happy:

In all seriousness, I've only watched Evangelion once, and really need to rewatch it. The first time, all joking aside, I found it (or at least the latter half) genuinely disturbing. I had the misfortune to see the director's cuts, which meant I got the unabridged version of 23 that was judged too horrific to air on Japanese TV. Outside of EOE, that was probably the part that traumatized me the most.

The hand thing is really horrific, isn't it?

I mean, did they cut that off later or something?

Also, of course, Rei :shinji_boohoo:

I'll bet. "It hurts, Shinji...doesn't it hurt?" EEEEEEUUUUUUURRRRGGHHHGHH GOD NO

Maybe I should write a fanfic where Shinji and Rei defeat Armisael without Unit 00 blowing up, but Shinji ends up with a little mini-Rei were his right hand used to be, in the fashion of Midori Days.

"Well, I'm sure glad that's over, aren't-"

*squeakily* "Hello, Ikari-kun!" *waves*

It's nice to see that somebody has watched that show other than I! However, that masturbation scene in EoE would get a lot more...interesting. For that matter, any time that Shinji started slapping the salami (often) would get more interesting.

Sorry to disappoint you, I haven't watched it, I just have a vague idea what it's about.

I want to watch it though, and will once my anime queue is down a bit.

Of god no, you're making it worse... :rei_hissyfit:
the worst is that larger ones were coming out of smaller one's mouths...

And amids all this, what tips Rei off that Armisael is going after Shinji because it's connected to her is that it pulls EVa 01 in a sultry embrace in her form.

It's massively creepy, but there is also this tinge of fridge sadness...

But worse than any visual grossness is the purely mental tension when Rei III is introduced and something is just... not right... the muted non-reactions, the glance straight ahead... in itself it wouldn't be usual, but in the context...

The glare when she takes the glasses, too.

Back in my early teens I watched anime on the regular, things like Sailor Moon, DBZ etc.

Anyway, I wanted to discover more anime and I saw that a show called Neon Genises Evangelion was playing, the short ad piqued my interest, so I stayed up to watch it.

It was the THERMAL EXPANSION episode, but I remember thinking that I enjoyed the characters and the art style.

So I continued watching, and got a hold of the previous episodes, by the end of the series I was left kind of numb and down but also excited to really analyze it all.

When I was older and watched it in full again, it had a more profound impact.
