My first contact with NGE i think it was in 2001 a friend tells me in shool from a "cool" anime series :D
After watching with him the series in english i was fascinated about. And in school we made a lot of discussions about the Eva and the Angels :tongue: Later i had started read the manga and NGE became my favorite Anime and Manga (love the manga) :rolleyes:

I knew it was a highly praised serie with some movie reboots that have a strange numeration by surfing the internet and searching for good anime. I didn't bother watching it for years until I saw the Blu Ray and DVD of the Rebuilds in stand at a comicon. I was searching for some Ghibli movies and the cover for 1.11 looked so cool. In the next 4 days I saw NGE+EoE+Rebuilds.
Even when the sun is shining, I can't avoid the lightning.

I developed an interest as a direct result of my fanatical interest in "Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind" (manga more so than film). Upon learning that Anno was a protege of Miyazaki Hayao (and that there are some small Easter-egg references in NGE to the manga: indeed, Anno at one time hoped to author a spin-off of his mentor's magnum opus), I thought NGE would definitely be worth my time. I was not disappointed.

My first exposure came in the early 2000s when NGE was airing on Adult Swim. Don't even remember if it finished its full run that first time i saw it. After hearing about the rebuild movies but shortly before they were to start coming out i rewatched NGE+EoE to get caught up the whole story proper.

The NTE though, initially i only watched 1.0 in late 2000s and got pretty disappointed since at the time it seemed like just a rehash of NGE with better animation. Watched 2.0 as soon as all the spoilery stuff regarding 3.0 made it clear it would indeed be different from NGE, and watched 3.0 soon after it came out. So i guess i got exposed early but only got into it quite late.
