Neon Genesis Evangelion = Series Review Of Crazyness

Back a while ago. I watched this series. Many have said it is one of the best series out there. Well, to be honest, I didn’t think that it was anything special. After I had finished it, I realized that I had to give it a rating of 5^^. Not because I was really impressed with it. I mean, it was good, just not really 5^^ stuff. But if I didn’t think the material made it 5^^, then how come I still gave it such a high mark?

Neon Genesis Evangelion

Premise: A kid, Shinji, is a normal, depressed, kid, who goes to school etc. Then one day he is chosen to pilot Eva, a huge robot thing that fights Angels…..let’s backtrack. Angels are pretty much these huge monsters that were formally bio-experiments. I should also mention that half of the world’s population is dead because of a huge blast that destroyed and melted Antarctica. NERV is a group that uses Evangelions to fight these creatures, thus ensuring the safety of man. Shinji’s dad happens to be in charge of NERV. Anyway, Shinji is chosen to pilot  an Evangelion, becasue his sync rate is good or something (Apparently they can only use teens for piolet them because of this?). So that’s the general premise, although I must say that this series is fucked, wacked, and psychologically warped. For the three days after I finished the movie following it, there was something wrong with me. The end of this show was like being brainwashed. I noticed that I became…well……crazy. I can;t remember much of what I did, but I know I skipped all of my classes, wasn’t really social, and didn’t make much sense when I talked (to myself). That is the only reason for this to get such a high grade, because it was the only show that fucked with my mind-state. Actually, I have a picture from before watching this show, and after. Here is the before picture:

I'm the one in the middle laying down facing the camera going "byooo" with his hand.....I may have been drunk...but this actually was around the time I watched Evangelion.

Ok good, now here is a photograph of me the day after watching Evangelion:

See how bad I looked? I dressed like a girl, I stole that baby from it’s mother, and my eyes weren’t even on straight! I was a mess. Luckily after 3 days I was back to normal. For a more complete story, read my spoilers…..Fuck….Pros……Cons.

Pros:

  • The show had some good characters for the most part. Except for Shinji.
  • The fighting and actual plot was well thought out. It wasn’t a typical robot anime (although I can’t say that for sure because I never really watch mecha).
  • Some interesting twists.
  • A really cool OP.
  • The end made me go crazy…..thanks for the fun times!

Cons:

  • Shinji is one of the worst characters ever. He is such a depressed pussy. And what really pisses me off is that he is the only ****** ** ***** **** ****** ***!!!!

The only reason it gets the grade I give is because I give the grade it gets.

FINAL GRADE = 5^^

PAST THIS POINT, THERE ARE SPOILERS!

So why exactly did this show make me go crazy? The end. I still don’t understand what the fuck went on. In the last episode, apparently everyone on earth dies because Rei turns into a giant angel and kills them and then Shinji goes nuts and for the whole episode the screen is flashing with random ass scenes of craziness and Shinji’s thoughts, which, if you watch for a half hour straight, concentrating hard to try and find some sense of sense, will incite a feeling of uncontrolability over your entire body, apart from bowels and bladders. Then the movie, which was supposed to have a different ending, was exactly the same. I have no idea what the fuck is going on. I guess the world ended, and it was up to Shinji whether is would continue or not. Shinji, being a huge pussy, probably decided to end it. Although who knows, because Asakura was there, aka the best character in the show (I love a character that isn’t afraid to kick some ass). Well how does this change how he thinks about earth? Well I’m pretty sure he likes her, I mean, he jerked off to her……while she was in the hospital…….unconscious………next to him……while he jerked off……..on her…….wtf? I just watched the last episode since the last sentence. It’s horrible. This marks the first and only time I ever have a show 5^^ for a horrible ending.

  1. WARNING SPOILERS! (Eye wrote this because Eye hold the power to edit your comments)

    You clearly did not understand the ending at all… and why would you you always have problems with confusing plots however

    Misato gets killed by the intruding JASDF forces by trying to save Shinji. Ritsuko gets shot by Gendo when the MAGI system defies Ritsuko by choosing her former lover over her daughter. Then after that they pretty much left it wide open. For you to think about. Eva is actually an angel, and they kind of explain that mankind is actually the 18th angel. Being that angels are humans with out human forms. Coming from the two life sources, Adam and Lilith.

    Also, Shinji did not choose to end the world, that wasnt even part of the choice. He was studying the word “contemplation” in the final ep.. and he decided that he can live and then is congratulated by all of his friends for making that decision. But the point is that he is givin a choice, he breaks down his link to reality then makes the choice that he can exist. Its very psychological and you really need to analize it. Which makes sense why you hate it cuz you hate anything you have to think about.

  2. I already knew that’s how the people died…..I may have confused the end of the movie with the end of the anime….didn’t they all turn to like…..goo? or suttin? I can’t fucking remember.

    Evangelion is rated highly for the same reason Citizen Kane is. It was ground-breaking/revolutionary for its time. Nothing like it had really been made, and it influenced the shit out of further works, to the extent that if you watch it now it seems generic because so many other shows have copied it. Plus, any time something is confusing or fucked up people assume it’s really deep and even if they don’t get it — no, especially if they don’t get it, they rank it higher.

    Furthermore, the creator of this series was clinically depressed and some other shit and this series was born from the feelings/thoughts he had during that time. So to understand it, you really have to have experienced that sort of thing. Seeing as Japanese people are by and large full of mental issues, especially the otaku, it’s not surprising that they flipped out over it, since it was probably the first show that ever really “spoke” to them on that level. The fact that Shinji was also a shithead like most of the viewers probably helped, and, in general, all of the characters were broken and had issues. PLUS TEH REI!!111
