Neon Genesis Evangelion is 10 years old
It’s been a while since we’ve had any Anime news, and this one actually comes a few months late. Well, not the source of the article itself, but the date in which Evangelion started, in October of 1995.
If you don’t completely ignore the Anime or Manga scene, there is no doubt that you’ve heard of this very polemic piece.
The “unfinished” ending which everyone criticizes that spawned, the love or hate characters (Rei is a sex goddess in Japan. True.), the great plot which thickened with each episode and the sheer originality of the series which was different from anything else that was out. If Evangelion is meant to be seen by 15 year olds, then it makes Dragonball seem like it should be seen while the baby is still being breast feeded. In any case, this is one of the rare series that put the Anime name on the headlines, and thus it deserves the respect of any self-respected Otaku. So three cheers to Evangelion!
Oh and Gainax, stop milking the cow so much, you know, after ten years you could reduce the price of the DVDs just a bit!
