My Neighbor Totoro was literally the first anime I ever watched, though my favorite of his movies was Spirited Away, recently watched Ponyo for the first time, my brain was like "wtf" and Saint Handjobs?
I can't think of the word service without also thinking of the word handjobs.
Although I shouldn't of mentioned that and just kept everybody wondering what the hell I was talking about.
How can someone be an anime fan and not have seen Miyazaki?
You...you're not true otaku.
I think NGE is very overrated, but importantly influential. I enjoyed the complex mind fuck plot more than the fighting and politics of the show. I think I've spent more time on the wiki, numerous fan sites, and just figuring out the mythology and plot than I have watching the original show. I loved that part of it.
Then I watched End of Evangelion and my heart was crushed.
Have you guys seen Demon King...something. I forget the full name. It's on netflix. It's about a highschooler who is told he'll be a Demon King or something and his high school starts acting weird towards him (idk).
