This is real MUST SEE TV!
This is quite possibly the best fantasy ever devised on the face of the planet. It has large unique mecca, nifty technology, emotional byplay, philosophical questions, great characters, unique music, great artwork... you name it it's got it. If you love anime watch it! If you hate anime watch it! Be warned though it looks deceptively simple at first. To get its full effect you must be willing to watch the entire series.

Quotes

Shinji Ikari: Ayanami! Are you all right? Ayanami! Don't say... Don't say that you have nothing else. Don't say goodbye when you leave on a mission. It's too sad.
Rei Ayanami: Why are you crying? I'm sorry; I don't know what to do of feel at a time like this.
Shinji Ikari: Why don't you ...


Goofs

It is impossible to tell where the Evas are housed and launched from. Launch shafts can be seen in several episodes - mostly straight, but with several angled sections - which imply that it must be somewhere between the Earth's surface and the ceiling of the GeoFront. However, in episode 19, it is shown that Eva cages are at the HQ level (at the bottom of the GeoFront). Moreover, it takes only a minor amount of time for the characters to travel from HQ to the Eva cages (as in episodes 1 and 6).


Crazy Credits

A different version of "Fly Me to the Moon" is played in each episode.


Alternate Versions

Episode 24:

  • After the scene where Asuka is running to her mom (with improved animation) there are new one, where Asuka learns about Kaji's death. Following, we got the scene of Asuka sitting in nasty bath water, where the animation is improved.
  • The animation quality of Shinji's first meeting with Kaworu on the beach is improved.
  • Extra dialogue is added in the scene where Kaworu meets Rei.
  • Adam imbedded in Gendo's hand.
  • Kaworu secretly meets SEELE.
  • SEELE's dialogue is altered as Kaworu makes his way to Lilith.
  • On the final scene of Evangelion ep. 24, the animation was improved: the scene is brighter and easier to see.
  • The scene where Kaworu and Shinji are in the shower: we got added animated fog as ambient:
  • The last scene of episode 24, when Shinji and Misato are talking, the reflexion of lights in the water was redone.
