as i am kind of suffering from evangelion burnout right now (and getting into some more stuff i haven't watched), i'd like to ask a question: is evangelion your personal favorite series?

i still love it, natch, but on the whole, i think r.o.d the tv and last exile are my current favorites. ghost in the shell: stand alone complex and gilgamesh are two other shows that i enjoy.

"Favourite" is a difficult thing.

NGE certainly has a very special place in my affections - if that is the right word for something that emotionally scarred me - as a landmark in things I have read or watched. It will, I am reasonably sure, stand out as an individual, rather than being lost in the mass.

I'm more likely to be excited about titles I'm currently watching or have recently watched (those that are more than just eye-candy, at least).

If one truly believes that there isn't anything better than Evangelion, why bother watching anime at all? I've never been the type to choose a single one out of many as a "favorite" or "best", there are plenty of great shows, some better or worse in some ways than others.

The only times I watch Evangelion these days (not counting rewatching a set of scenes), is when I show it to other people and I'm there more or less as a neutral commentator.

It's one of the three that I'd consider myself a big fan of (the other two being the original Mobile Suit Gundam and Cat Ninden Teyandee).

Currently, yes, considering it's the latest anime I've gotten into--my current love--so to speak. :P

There are other anime and/or manga I like (Excel Saga, Ebichu, Marmalade Boy, Gravivation), though in terms of # 1 favorite next to Eva, would have to be Sailormoon. It was the show that pretty much got me into anime (though I did see some episodes of Robotech and Voltron beforehand, during Toonami 1998), and hey, you can't go wrong with Mitsuishi Kotono-sama. :wink: Though I admit 5 seasons, 200 episodes and 3 movies (plus several speicals) of the "monster-of-the-day" formula DOES wear out thin; it's a shame it couldn't have been closer to Takeuchi-sensei's manga in that respect, espeically the Sailor Stars (5th season, unreleased in America) arc of the anime and manga. >_<

I went throught an eva stage.Its the single reason i joind this forum but it soon faded and realized hellsing is my fav...but today that changed!I bought the first volume of HELLSING ULTIMATE!

It is now officialy my fav anime.After i watched that beautiful 50 minutes of badassery i noticed reis face on my platinum edition and couldnt remember her name for a few seconds.

Screw eva its all about hellsing ultimate for me.But i need the socialism so i continue to come here...this is my creed.

Eva is stil my favorite but I rarely watch it anymore. (Its probably been a year since I last saw it) It is more my favorite for sentimental reasons than anything. It was the first anime I really got hooked on. Now I watch a whole range of other anime from many different genres. I get bored with only one type of anime all the time.

For me, NGE is a favorite and not the favorite. It currently competes with Excel Saga, Black Lagoon, FLCL, Cowboy Bebop and Ghost in the Shell: SAC.

in my case it kinda is my favourite anime,
but with a close folowing of Eureka 7.


Evangelion is the first anime where my tears dropped down hum... unforgetable such memories.
even if you have nothing left, just try to smile.

Eva is my fav anime, Big O is my second fave, and Trigun, Fate/Stay Night, and FMA are kinda entertaining too. But I find I don't like much in the way of anime. Strange.

Evangelion is tops for me. Haruhi, Love Hina, and Mai HiME come in a close second (all tied), and the rest just line up after that.

Without question. The only anime that have come remotely close to being regarded as highly as Eva in my eyes are Eureka Seven, Gankutsuou, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Cowboy Bebop, FLCL, and Kare Kano.
He was warrior and mystic, ogre and saint, the fox and the innocent, chivalrous, ruthless, less than a god, more than a man. There is no measuring Muad'Dib's motives by ordinary standards. In the moment of his triumph, he saw the death prepared for him, yet he accepted the treachery. Can you say he did this out of a sense of justice? Whose justice, then? Remember, we speak now of the Muad'Dib who ordered battle drums made from his enemies' skins, the Muad'Dib who denied the conventions of his ducal past with a wave of the hand, saying merely: "I am the Kwisatz Haderach. That is reason enough."

I'm going to openly display my anime n00bdom and say this is the first anime I've actually explored, and enjoyed. I haven't seen everything (just not EoE) -- with any luck, I might get it for my birthday.
