Now for an anime review. Neon Genesis Evangelion.

Please don't get me wrong. I really like this anime.

Its got epic battles,

 an interesting story line,

and some fan service, but not enough to distract from everything else.


All that aside, it isn't the BEST anime out there. I know I might piss a few people off saying this, but I think that it could be a lot better.

Now before you all start lining up to throw rocks at my house, let me clarify.

Its not that its a bad anime. I just think that there are a few tweaks. It gets really preachy, has episodes that go no where, and an antagonist that needs to either grow some balls, or shut the hell up.

Seriously. Any time Shinji (The main character) starts to whine about.... well, fucking ANYTHING, I go straight to the liquor cabinet. Odds are, by the time Ive finished my third shot, he will finally be done bitching.

When I first saw NGE I thought Oh cool! A giant mech anime that isn't Gundam! and even in the first episode, I got to see a giant monster thing wrecking Japans shit. AWESOME...

Then I got, what, three episodes of exposition? I remember thinking that the next fight better be awesome, or I'm gong to lose it. The next fight came, and it was... just okay...

To be perfectly honest, at that time I stopped watching. It wasn't until a few years later, that I went back and finished watching the series.

I'm all for an artistic anime, with a message, but I think NGE just took it too far. Its not a bad anime, mind, but its not the greatest. Ive heard that they rebooted, and I haven't had a chance to watch the new stuff, so maybe they fixed a lot. Ill let you know what I think when I see it, but to be honest, I'm not that amped to go sit through it. The first series sapped that out of me.

Ok, there's my 2 cents. You may now start spamming me with hate mail. I will still love you.

Here's to anime
