Evangelion & Sadness in Endings


I just finished the anime series Neon Genesis Evangelion. It fed my childhood fantasy of piloting giant robots while fighting giant monsters, and It dealt with a laundry list of emotions for me: masculinity, loneliness, depression, and relationships. It also grazed over ideas and concepts like the singularity, Kabbalah, and homosexuality.


I’m not sure if I think the show was good or bad. It was slow moving, and the more entertaining bits seemed to go by in a flash. More so, the context of the story spoke louder than anything else. I’m usually left hollow any time I finish binge watching something, so I won’t over state my emotions on the series; however, I recommend it to any anime fan.
