This week we bring you an episode with two sides. On one hand, the episode has some of the most fun character development of anything we have seen in the series thus far. On the other hand, this episode is wrought with some social issues and narrative choices that leave a bad taste in our mouths. Laugh, cringe, and dance along with us as we review Episode 9 of Neon Genesis Evangelion, “Mind, Matching, Moment.”
The second children (that still sounds stupid) has arrived! Asuka has arrived, and she isn’t going to join the crew quietly. In the 8th episode, “Asuka Arrives in Japan,” Shinji and Asuka are forced to work together to take down an angel that emerges from the ocean depths. Oh, and Shinji wears a very…form-fitting suit. Why is it that anime creators are so horny all of the time? Either way, give this week’s episode a listen!
