Just going to throw this out here, but in terms of my own enjoyment, this ranks 2nd on my all-time favorite anime list. I know technically speaking it does'nt really deserve to be that high up, but god-dammit if it didn't push every button in my little otaku body. Video games, rpgs, cool fights, loved the characters, loved to hate that fucker of a villain in the 2nd arc, just loved it all(except that one part with the tentacle monsters, that was just stupid, everything else, loved it).
Defiantly buying it when it comes out here, very curious to see how the English dub turns out.
I mean, predictability is the central attraction and the narrative hook that we've all come to expect from the Evangelion franchise. How come Anno can't realize this? Twice? - FreakyFilmFan4ever
