Isn't Neon Genesis Evangelion supposed to be a "classic"? (21)

I watched the first ten episodes, and it seems to be just a monster-of-the-day show with lots of fanservice. Am I missing something?

It's a good show, but so overrated that it can never live up to expectations. Stick with it and the "End of Evangelion" movie will provide a nice payoff at the end.

The endless new EVA redux cash grabs are another story altogether. Redux EVA is basically a cynical welfare program for Anno based on tarting up old girl EVA with Otaku fanservice like "glasses girls", and making her "turn tricks" in this new guise for pimp Anno.

It was an early anime to get mainstream success and exposure in the west which I think contributes a lot to it's reputation. It's also a pretty big mindfuck for 14 year olds.

Also Rei a shit.

EVA is pretty good. Awesome animation & designs and kinda good story. imo tho

>I watched the first ten episodes

It doesn't get really good until towards the end.

Evangelion picks up around episode 14.

Rebuild of Evangelion never picks up though, it's really bad. Don't watch Rebuild.

That's a bloody long time for a show to get good, especially for my 3 episode rule.

Yeah, it does take a while and if you're watching the dub, it can be painful, but once it really picks up, it doesn't ever drop it again.

I like the early episodes though, but they're definitely less "action-packed" and intense than the later ones, and some people dislike that about them.

I just recently watched it myself. Although it did fail to meet my lofty expectations of it I still really enjoyed watching it. Certainly not the greatest anime ever made but it definitely still holds up.

I watched it somewhat recently. No other series is as hyped it seems to me. I enjoyed it a lot - my favorite scene was when Rei smiles. I didn't enjoy End of Evangelion or the Rebuilds as much though.

People say Eva starts slow and gets better, but my experience was the opposite. I thought it was really good when I first started watching. Then it slowly shit the bed. It's a pretty good show, overall tho.

Asuka is the cutest. Anyone who disagrees is wrong.

Overrated as fuck, but it's still good, so it's worth watching regardless. Just avoid any discussions of it outside this place.

20 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2021-02-22 07:34 ID:taINHLck

Rebuilds a shit. Eva cultists an even bigger shit.
