When Neon Genesis Evangelion first came up on [adult-swim] I dismissed it as “yet another giant robot show”. I knew it had a cult status, and huge fan following. But I figured that people generally like these mecha themed shows. I personally don’t care for the big robot thing that much. I really didn’t think I would ever like this show.
Boy was I wrong! I have been totally sucked in, and now I’m impatiently waiting for the new episode each week. I can honestly say that in my book, Evangelion is one of the best anime shows of all time. It is totally opposite of what I suspected. The plot is really deep and full of mystery. Characters are incredibly complex and well developed. The story is really more a reflection on human nature and the human condition. This is how you make a good Scifi show :)
The retards that write scripts for SG: Atlantis should take notes. Yes, I said it. That show sucks! SG:A fans can kiss my shiny metal arse :P
I actually managed to spoil myself a little bit while browsing wikipedia, but oh well. I’ll try to stay away from any Evangelion sites until I see the rest of the series, and the movies that wrap it up.
Unfortunately both Evangelion and Fullmetal Alchemist are going to end really soon, which means I will be left without any Must Watch Anime™ shows on TV. (Ok, there is still Standalone Complex. It is good but I wouldn’t say it is a Must Watch™ show though).
What is on your Must Watch Anime™ list? What show/movie should I buy/download/procure next?
