    Default Interesting EVA?

    Well I tried general and no luck so here's a try in EVA. Basically do people think I will like this based on what m interests are?
    just some details about my current interests

    cowboy bebop
    wolf's rain
    witch hunter robin
    ghost in the shell - all barring solid state
    princess mononoke
    sky blue
    nausica
    spirited away

    generally I prefer my anime to be slightly more serious than goofy (silly)
    and I also enjoyed the zone of the ender games - so I'm not totally new to mechs
    just after your opinions - thanks

    Neon Genesis Evangelion is a relativly serious anime. In my opnion, you might have to watch the series a couple of times to actually understand it. But the books that came out before will help to understand the show more. Here is the main idea of the show:Evangelion takes place in the near future (2015 AD), fourteen years after the catastrophic Second Impact, and describes a expedition to Antarctica where scientists discover a large being of light, deemed by them as the Angel. This conflict caused a massive flood, consuming a large number of Earth's population. The Second Impact to the general public though, was covered up and said to be the result of an asteroid hitting Antarctica. In this conflict, mankind is represented by the mysterious organizations called NERV, Gehirn (which became NERV), SEELE, and Marduk. NERV is in theory under the control of SEELE, but NERV has its own agenda, driven by its commander Ikari Gendou (father of Ikari Shinji: main character and pilot of Eva Unit 01). NERV carries out two tasks: to defend the Earth from Angel attack with a small number of Evangelions and the Human Instrumentality Project. The Evangelions, which have the outward appearance of massive biomechanical robots and can be piloted only by 14 year old children. Pilots are selected by the Marduk Agency which is later discovered to be composed of about 100 ghost corps; pilots must have lost a mother or a very close loved one, which is then used as the soul of the Eva. Only the designated pilot of an Eva can pilot it, due to the bond of the pilot's soul and the soul of the Eva; otherwise, any other person who tries to synchronize (simply put, to technically work as one mind) with the Eva will be refused. It is later revealed that the Evangelions are not really "robots" but rather living organisms. The secret second task, the Human Instrumentality Project, which (if successful) intends to start an artificial evolution of mankind. Considering the religious implications of the term "evangelion" imply that this event was to bring about the salvation of mankind in the context of a newly created Earth. Evangelion is on many levels of understanding, and i think that anyone would like Evangelion.

    No you will not like it. It's boring and too dramatic for a mech anime. If you want to see the whole series then just watch the last two episodes. A big waste of time though everyone on the face of the earth charishes it like it's the best thing since twinkies. Avoid this one and just watch some Gundam.


    All I need is hand grenades.

    Why rob a bank? Rob a drug dealer. What are they gonna do? Call the cops?

    I wouldnt say anyone would like it. There are a few people [like mr. grouchy up there who dont] I personally do though. SO if you like drama, war, blood and a complicated series, this is for you

    Yes watch this anime ASAP!! It is one of the greatest, if not THE greatest anime ever. Ignore fools who say its too boring, their thought process goes: .....................BIG SWORDS!!!!.....................GUNDAM!!!!.......
    Evengelion is not boring, but it is very complex and requires a lot of attention. It is one of the most emotional animes ever and questions human morales more so than any other anime, and the character development is amazing, it has also some of the best character and mecha designs ever... defenaitely look into it my man

    Eva is one of the best. I also like Cowboy Bebop, witch hunter robin, ghost in the shell, princess mononoke, sky blue and spirited away and I loved evangelion, so in theory you should too lol

    Evidently we have common tastes...so may I take this opportunity to recommend R.O.D, .hack, KARAS, Samurai Champloo, Death Note and Poni Poni Dash

    i have all those animes you have listed, if your looking fro a more serious anime, hmm, look up

    "Planetes" its a hard Sci-fi in space. (hard sci-fi has real basis in reality as we know it, they wear space suits, and no giant indistructable robots...just shuttles and a moon colony...) also

    "Fafner" is serious along the lines of Eva, and one hell of a huge body count...

    "Rahxephon" what many consider a Eva clone, but i think it was done better, and the kids less of a whiner...Rod is cool, have the movie and the tv series.

    "Full Metal panic" is cool for mecha action too. alot of school hijinks too
    "FMP: Fumoffu" the second season of FMP is hilarious...not even remotely serious...
    "FMP:second raid" the third season if much darker than the first, also a must see


    "Last Exile" is a must see, a really great story, even better animation and visual, and the world is neat...

    "Stellvia" is another one of my favorites, cool tech...

    and good god how can you watch Poni poni dash. it needs some prozac or something cause that show bounces off its own walls...it makes Zero sense and isnt nearly as good as Negima!...if you want serious stay away from this one, but if you want some whacked out lunacy its just the right place, along with a padded room and some happy pills...
    Some people go through life with out ever truly going insain, what a horrible way to live
