Neon Genesis Evangelion – At least, be human / Don’t be [22]

The reason why these past two episodes have been half an hour instead of twenty minutes is because I happened to see the director’s cut which is a pretty happy coincidence. I know that the directors cuts are a lot longer compared to the usual 22 minutes and since the director is adding content to … Continue reading Neon Genesis Evangelion – At least, be human / Don’t be [22]

Neon Genesis Evangelion – The birth of NERV / He was aware that he was still a child [21]

If you are ever unable to watch anime in your normal streaming preference for popular shows you can always count on daily motion which is where I watched this episode, also I cannot stress this fact enough, if you stream anime online or even download it you need to be using the pop-up blocker extension … Continue reading Neon Genesis Evangelion – The birth of NERV / He was aware that he was still a child [21]

Neon Genesis Evangelion – Shape of heart, shape of human / Weaving a Story 2: oral stage [20]

I like starting episodes from when the previous left off. This time we begin with Shinji in his combined Eva form eating the angel’s core in desperation. The characters remark that they won’t be able to control the Eva anymore. So they unlocked a lot of potential but it doesn’t actually mean much. The higher … Continue reading Neon Genesis Evangelion – Shape of heart, shape of human / Weaving a Story 2: oral stage [20]

Neon Genesis Evangelion – A Man’s Battle / Introjection [19]

I think this episode is probably my favourite so far as it involves both the brilliant character moments we’ve come to expect as well as the great action we’ve come to love. This episode is a direct follow up to the previous (not just in name only) because the events could easily flow as if … Continue reading Neon Genesis Evangelion – A Man’s Battle / Introjection [19]

Neon Genesis Evangelion – Selection of Life / Ambivalence [18]

The previous episode felt like a kind of mess of many things in my mind, yet this was more focussed and as a consequence hopefully easier to write about! We open to a shot of Eva Unit 03 flying in from America and it looks cool, the creators of the show also took effort to … Continue reading Neon Genesis Evangelion – Selection of Life / Ambivalence [18]

Neon Genesis Evangelion – Fourth Child [ 17]

None of the characters in this show really understand what angels are like, so understandably we start with an interrogation of Misato who’s acting as a proxy for Shinji. Misato uses her judgement to work out that Shinji isn’t in the right condition to comment on the angel situation. Shinji is not the kind of … Continue reading Neon Genesis Evangelion – Fourth Child [ 17]

Neon Genesis Evangelion – In Sickness Unto Death, and… / Splitting of the Breast [16]

On a seemingly normal morning Asuka shouts at Shinji (this will become a pattern) about how he apologies without thinking. In this case it’s about the temperature of Asuka’s bath water which is something Asuka should be doing anyway so it’s not hard to sympathise with Shinji’s uncaring apology. The thing is that Shinji does … Continue reading Neon Genesis Evangelion – In Sickness Unto Death, and… / Splitting of the Breast [16]
