And wow, do I feel fucking bad now. I'd seen the parts of the anime that might convince you it was actually a robot anime, but none of the "baggage"-- like the last 3-5 episodes are just, fucking wow. And End of Evangelion.... that's like some Black Mirror/Love, Death & Robots shit. I know there's some contention on translations and things, but goddamn the hospital scene and the final scene framed by the Asuka/Shinji interactions during instrumentality.

Super excited to watch the rebuilds now, and awaiting 4.0 anxiously. This show is a gold mine, but god-- It leaves a feel-bad pit in my stomach.
