Re: Anime Discussion Thread
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.
