    this is some good shit. I hear the ending is completely confused and depressing though.


    Haven't ever watched Cowboy Bebop either.

    I think I heard the "ending" was just to hold people over until the movie came out. The End of Evangelion was pretty good :hs:

    EoE was confusing as hell when it hit that final stretch, but was still a great watch for the imagery.

    What episode are you on? The show is pretty normal till episode 16 or something. Then it just turns into a mindfuck.

    The series is epic and disturbing. You have to have the film to finish the story. The series has a pyschological ending and the film is the physical ending.

    I'm 2/3rds of the way through the TV series right now, just finished the ep where they get Unit 03 and it turns out to be an Angel. Death/Rebirth and EoE are next in line in my queue. Trying to decide what to watch after I'm done with Evangelion, probably either Bebop or Gurren Lagann. I'm way behind with my "must watch" anime.

    you should definitely watch the series. It's only like 26 30-minute episodes, not a huge time committment and the story has been awesome so far.

    Retake was :bowdown: but still very much :ugh::eek4: by the time all the twists and turns were done :rofl:

    I guess it wouldn't be evangelion if it didn't leave going "what the fuck did I just watch/read" at the end.

    I like all the characters, except for maybe Shinji's dad :)ugh:). You can't help but like the 3 kids, they're all so fucked up you end up feeling bad for them.

    Gendou was awesome. I fucking could not stand Shinji. Such a little crybaby.

    Still a great series. One of the ones (along with Trigun and Cowboy Bebop) that got me into watching anime.

    People complain about Shinji, but he acts no different than any other 14 y/o child would thrust into the situations he was put through. Plus his relationship with his father to top it all off.
