Hi all! This is actually the first forum community i've ever joined, so sorry if my etiquette isn't up to par
. I'm honestly excited to see so many people love Eva just as much as I do! The show literally changed my life.
I first saw it back in 2003, i was probably 13 at the time, and the only anime i had watched was pokemon and DBZ. Then i met a new friend in middle school and he changed that forever. The first time through Evangelion i couldn't stop, so i watched the whole series in one sitting. I was in love with the characters and how they interacted with eachother, it felt very realistic, and the plot was so much more in depth than anything i had seen. It made me think about things that most 13 yr old kids couldn't even fathom.
The series left me longing for more so i immediately went out and bought EoE and Death& Rebirth. That sealed the deal. I've watched tons of anime since, but Evangelion will forever be #1 on my list!
