Yay, this is my first "post" (Technically it's a reply)

1. Clockiel and Unit 02 with S-Type Equipment

Because Clockiel is my favourite Angel. It looks cool, freezes water with its A.T Field AND creates crosses out of water to destroy ships. :O

2. Ramiel and Unit 01 with Positron Rifle

Because the beams are ridiculously overpowered, and Ramiel's scream is chilling. Also, Ramiel levels a MOUNTAIN.

3. Zeruel and Unit 01, 00 & 02

Because it was lengthy, had its share of acceptable violence (Acceptable as in not as violent as the EoE MP Eva and Asuka fight), and was crucial to the plot.

4. Bardiel and Unit 01 with Dummy System (Goltha Base Build)

Because it had a lot of impact. Seeing Shinji, in his childish and indecisive state, watching in horror as
the Dummy System absolutely eviscerates Bardiel gives you the chills. Also, the last part where the Entry Plug is crushed.

5. MP Evas and Unit 02

Well, I chose this one over the 4 Eva fight in Evangelion 3.33 You Can (Not) Redo because I think that the Eva 3.33 fight was not as impacting as this one (See what I did there?). Watching the MP Evas absolutely eviscerate Eva 02 and seeing the consequences physically on Asuka just scares you.
Sweet Jesus, it's an Anti A.T Field! :(

The best 5 moments, hm...

5. Asuka vs. Harpies is full of great moments of course, but if I had to choose one, I'd credit the moment when Unit 02 gets out of the water. Perfectly animated.

4. Return of Lance of Longinus from the Moon, mostly thanks to great work of sound FX people.

3. Asuka's ascencion onto orbit (yeah, I'm pretty much a space freak).

2. "Do you feel good?" moment in the real life sequence from EoE. It was the second time in my life I had that eidetic impression that I entered a fictional world and I accompany characters hand in hand, so that if I spoke, they would hear me and react.

Aaand the toppest of the top moments:

1. The whole Operation Yashima in NTE is pretty much awesome, but the best moment is when Shinji is placing his gun back onto firing position and all those nameless people are shown working to allow him to fire again. You are (not) alone indeed.

Good lists. Except for the NTE stuff, you uncultured plebs. Haha, nah, I'm just kidding, you guys are alright. Unit-01(EDIT: UNIT-13) battling Unit-02 on a mountain of skulls? How is that not cool? I swear that's not sarcasm. It was pretty awesome.

1. My absolute favorite scene is from Episode 16, when Unit-01 has been devoured by Leliel. That scene where the Eva awakens and Shinji, through bits of memory and impression, meets his mother - for just a moment - has always stuck with me. If I had to pick a favorite episode, it'd be 16.

2. Uh, the scene in the DC when Asuka flips out in the bathroom. My feels.

3. Asuka's mind-rape from the DC. I like the cycling bits of her personality shattering after every reiteration. Train hub sequence is also pretty haunting.

4. The Ode to Joy scene from episode 24. That was actually the first episode of NGE I ever watched. Had to go back and figure out what the fuck.

5. I suppose the last one would be from episode 9, when Asuka storms off and Shinji finds her in the convenience store, his reflection sitting right next to hers in the glass of the open door.
Amarantos - an NGE AU, beginning with Asuka, Shinji, and a garden. Take a look. Couldn't hurt.

Mine are pretty typical so I won't be suprised if other people had these on their lists.
1. The third Impact - my favorite scene in film, driggered all my neurons in ways I never knew were possible
2. Misato's death scene - of course not because she died, Misato is my favorite character and this scene was just so powerful and heart-cluthing for me
3. Eva devouring the s^2 engine - not a suprise, Mitsuo Iso is a god and just the sheer power of this scene and combined with just how weird and disgusting it was
4. Asuka's fight scene - this is just one of the best animated fights I've seen and definitely the best animated mecha fights I've watched, again Mitsuo Iso, this time combined with Yoshinari made something amazin
5. Kaji's phone message to Misato - Kaji is probably my second favorite character and just seeing what it did to Misato and Shinji's inability to do anything crushed my littl heart to pieces

Fights:

5. Evas 0, 1, 2 vs Matarael
4.Eva 1 vs Sachiel
3.Eva 1 vs Bardiel
2.Asuka vs. MPEs (pre-reactivation)
1.Eva 1 vs Zeruel

Moments:

5. When Shinji chokes Asuka in pre-instumentality
4.Rei using the Lance of Longinus
3.Misato and Kaji's kiss
2.Ritsuko's break down at the Reiquarium

Notable mentions:

Ritsuko in Terminal Dogma, Rei reading her book trying to ignore Asuka, the dance of destruction against Israfel, Misato's rescue of Shinji from Sachiel, and pretty much any scene with Pen Pen (sans when he rejects Misato, when Misato gives him away, and when he peeps on Shinji and Asuka during pre-instrumentality).

This shit is planted deep in my psyche, yo. The new movies have some impressive sequences, but they will never captivate me on the same level, never touch me as deeply.


Absolutely, couldn't agree more about NGE vs. the Rebuild films and their "impact(s)" :p

Seriously though, it's awesome that we chose some of the same scenes/moments :D

Hm, I am gonna choose not to put them in order, because I just love them all!
Keep in mind, most of these are moments.

- [Rebuild 2.0] Shinji doing what he wants for once and (attempting) to save Rei / Rei sacrificing herself for him.
- [Rebuild 1.0 / NGE] Rei smiling to Shinji after Operation Yashima
- [NGE - Director's Cut] Asuka's mind-violation hurt my feels for some reason, keep in mind I really like Asuka.
- [EoE] When Asuka caresses Shinji's face, causing him to start crying and stop choking her. (In my mind, her way of accepting him.)
- [NGE - Director's Cut] The kiss scene between Asuka and Shinji and then afterward when she cried because he didn't hold her back. (This might be my favorite, I'm sorry)

My Favorite Fight
- [EoE] Asuka v MPEs irritated me because I knew Shinji could've helped her out, but he was just too upset at the time to act and "save" her. Nonetheless, the sheer emotion of awesome I felt from her beating them to a pulp, only to be shot into deep desperation as she was being "killed". It was put in my mind forever.

I'm ship trash, please don't hate me. -o-;

I'm going to go with, in no particular order...

- Mari vs. Zeruel (Still keeps the futility of the original fight, but I prefer it to Unit-02 just standing around and shooting)
- Wille vs. Nerv in Central Dogma (The RS Hoppers make for some fantastic weapons, and the whole thing is just fun to watch)
- "Congratulations!"/EOTV (An unambiguously happy ending for Shinji...)
- Shinji and Leliel's chat (I have no idea, I just really like it)
- Shinji and Asuka versus Koh and Otsu/Israfel Alpha and Beta (Do I even need to say it?)
My ongoing fanfics: NGE: (Not) the End, Evangelion: Regenesis

Winking Mari makes my heart go doki doki
We're all Asuka-fanboys? I take great exception to that. It's Mari I want to plow nine ways from Sunday, if you don't mind.

What? She's 28 now.

1) Unit-01 vs. Sachiel (NGETV/Rebuild) - Best introduction ever, and one of the best animated fight scenes I'd ever seen in an anime at that time (especially for 1996)
2) Unit-02 vs. MP Evas (EOE) - If the first fight with Sachiel hadn't left such an impression on me when I first saw it when I was 12 (I saw the first two eps and ep 25 on Adult Swim back in 2003 or sometime around then), and I was equally impressed when I first watched the series in its entirety when I was 14.
3) Unit-01 vs. Zeruel (NGETV) - If Unit-02's fight with the MP Evas wasn't so long and outright good (especially since Asuka really deserved a point where she genuinely kicked ass besides her first appearance with Gaghiel, which was a joint effort with Shinji anyway), and if the fight with Sachiel wasn't such a memorable introduction, this would easily be first for how powerful, eerie, and brutal the whole thing was. Essentially, the top 3 are nearly a tie, but not quite. I thought Unit-01 opening its palm and splitting the weird cloth-like arms, grabbing, and pulling Zeruel in so hard and then staring it in the face while giving a low growl and its horn going through Zeruel's eye was just awesome. It's exactly what I could imagine something doing if it were so pissed off/wanted to violently murder and mutilate its enemy. Kind of a riveting "shit got real" moment where Unit-01 basically says "fuck you" to her opponent's face and proceeds to just destroy her in the most animalistic way, finishing off with eating the angel's flesh, looking generally crazed, and howling. Painted a picture of just what beasts these Evas were that they were fighting with, especially considering before that point it's not totally clear that they aren't giant cyborgs or something, but actually entirely biological underneath.
4) Unit-01 "Splitting of the Breast" breaking out of Leliel (NGETV) - Very cool and powerful moment, though not quite a fight in it's own right. But, what I said rhymed so it's fine to put on this list of mine.
5) Unit-01 vs. Bardiel (NGETV/Rebuild) - Rather cool moment where the outcome is utterly brutal, it was a respectable scene to put in given the cuts to the budget (or at least some repercussion) as a result were probably foreseeable. It also wasn't the blood piñata you typically see with anime, but very detailed and gutsy/gooey/organy, which is something else I respect (along with how well-paced and realistic the levels of violence were throughout the entirety of the show, which has changed a bit in the Rebuild movies unfortunately).

Top scenes no matter what are...
1.) 2.22 - Everything from when Mari pulls Shinji out of the bunker to the end of the end credits sequence, probably the greatest ending to any film I have ever seen.
2.) EOE - Misato kissing, trying to inspire and saying goodbye to Shinji.

OTHER FIGHTS
- Unit 01 ripping his way out of Leliel
- 1.11 - Full final battle.
- Armisael's battle.
- Rey & Unit 0 taking out Arael with the Lance.

OTHER MOMENTS
- 3.33 - "Fate will surely guide you"
- EOE - Shinji choosing to allow humanity to return to life if they choose. (god this incredible music - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KxZ01ncJ7qs)
- 2.22 - Aquarium scene.

5: Berserk Unit 01 versus Zeruel. That howl of misery and rage still sends shivers down my spine.
4: Unit 01 and Unit 02 versus Israfel (both fights). It was easily my favourite episode for how goddamn funny it was, and the fights were no exception.
3: The TV ending. The first time I watched it, it was confusing. The second time, it was beautiful. Easily one of the most moving things I've ever seen.
2: Asuka versus the Eva Series. Without a doubt one of the greatest fight scenes in cinema history.
1: Rei smiling. HNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGGGGG-
Here lies Squigsquasher.
2013-2017.
