Oh sheet I mixed up Magmadiver (BTW I was sure it was going to be one of the pick and I voted it) and Jet Alone lol. I shouldn't post with high fever. :tongue:
Asuka is reacting to my stupid posts.

I for one find it weird that people don't like episodes without Evas smacking down on angels, unless the revolve around Shinji...but episode 3 has both though? Color me shocked.

I like episode 13 because of Ritz. She's the real highlight of that episode.

Magmadiver features one of the most truly moronic moments in the series when Misato holds Asuka's bad report card against her even though she's already graduated from fucking college and doesn't even need to be enrolled in middle school in the first place.

However, it's a good episode for Asuka's character because it foreshadows her issues, gives her a solo battle versus an angel which she wins, yet still has to be saved at the end by Shinji (which at first she adores, but later grows to hate), and gives credence to the Asuka/Shinji pairing (which is solidified in 15 and 22') with her obvious interest and flirting with him (as well as her aforementioned reaction when he saves her).
Among the people who use the Internet, many are obtuse. Because they are locked in their rooms, they hang on to that vision which is spreading across the world. But this does not go beyond mere ‘data’. Data without analysis [thinking], which makes you think that you know everything. This complacency is nothing but a trap. Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.

And so we arrive at demagogy. - Hideaki Anno, 1996

UPDATE

Conducting one last poll, as some people may have mixed up episodes 3 and 4. Please take a look. Thanks!

Voted for both of them. I count both as some of the most important episodes for Shin-chan and Misato.

I voted both for the same reasons, plus they establish Shinji's relationship with Toji and Kensuke.

I think there's a distinction to be made between "are these episodes important?" and "do you like these episodes?" I don't think any of us in the dislike camp would discount their importance to the show's narrative for even a moment.

Yes, I know. You thought it would be something about Asuka. You're such idiots.

Well, I actually do like the both of them, especially more so than episodes 5-6. Episodes 5 and 6, to me at least, somewhat drag on and feels almost like a chore to watch. It's pretty interesting I feel that way given that those episodes feature Rei a lot more than usual. The best thing about episode 6 is Rei's smile and that's it.

It seems that Jet Alone is a unanimity, but I always found it as worthy as the others when watching it for the first time, you come from watching episode 06, with high expectation, for me Jet Alone shows us that there are companies beyond Nerv who may know of their secrets, Eva-01 chasing after JA and a view of the sunset in the background, I always liked that scene. The only thing I think forced was that Misato figured out too fast how to turn off JA, like, she looks at those pillars and deduces, "If I push this thing, it's sure to stop," also because Shinji tries to close the JA vapor? , Would not that make a possible faster explosion?
