Neon Genesis Evangelion only because I was so bored that my mind drifted off and started thinking about other things


thats amusing
Let me guess, you could not stand the endless angel attacks could you?


I didn't even get that far into it I only watched six episodes, and I just wasn't interested in the slightest in the story or the characters. I do plan on actually watching the whole thing eventually, it's a classic after all, but it's not high on my list of priorities.


My guy, the first 6 episodes are to get you acclimated to the show's characters, and make you feel nice and cozy.

Then Asuka shows up in the next episode or so, and all that familiarity you just had goes out the window.

And then the second half of the show is where all of its infamy and clout comes from lol.


I believe you, I just can't really bring myself to care. Like I said I'll get to it eventually though.

The religious shit in Eva can be taken seriously, or not. People like to take Anno's words about "the symbolism being put in to make everything look exotic" at face value. When in reality, it's some very cool, and clever symbolism, at least to me. C'mon my dude, you're double my age I know you've read some Hegel, Sartre, Kierkegaard, or something. Eva is chock full of existentialist questions, and presents the idea of coming to terms with your existence and accepting life is rife with pain (and all the other shit it talks about) beautifully.

Now Lain... God I love Lain. I love how it presents the information for us to pick up on, but then the other half of me thinks "jesus christ is this an asinine way to give us the bits of info we need to understand everything." I think if you went back and watched it you'd love it just as much. RIP Ryutarou Nakamura, and let's hope we can get Despera one day lol.

Ergo Proxy is pure meme fuel for my friends and I. "Raison Detre" being repeated over and over again is fucking hilarious. The show IS pretentious, and it could have been a helluva lot better with MAJOR plot changes
but I still love it. And it put me onto Radiohead, which is now my favorite band on Earth.


I haven't rewatched SEL in a long time. I don't think I can watch it anymore. I've kinda found my metaphysical answers to philosophical questions.

Eva dives more into psychology than religion, and the religious bits are more or less decoration.

Ergo Proxy is meme-like because it's a lot of references with not cohesive point. It's ALL decoration.

I think though that the first two series get considered "deep" and "philosophical" because they touch upon those points, but they're imperfect and kind of force you to complete the equation.

More than the series that are philosophical, I've started really appreciating these titles and others for their residual power. They stick with you, you know?
