To be perfectly honest, “Neon Genesis Evangelion” was not at the top of my priority list of anime series that have been recommended to me. I primarily checked it out because I wanted to see the finale movie that on certain days is on the IMDb Top 250, and that’s a list I want to complete. I can say that this show is unique and more in-depth than I had anticipated. The general premise might make it seem silly but it explores a lot of complex topics which I didn’t see coming. The show isn’t as relentlessly fast-paced as other anime series, but it is still an engaging and solid one to check out. Overall, I liked it and particularly enjoyed the episodes in the second half of the series.
