Welcome to the second half of this two-part saga! What does the crew have to do when an Eva turns on them? The answer isn’t a pleasant one, especially for Shinji. We may have another good episode on our hands as we review Neon Genesis Evangelion Episode 18, “Life and Death Decisions.”
Welcome to the first of a two part set of Evangelion episodes. This week we find out that there will be a new Eva pilot. And the only one that doesn’t seem to figure it out is Shinji. Not a ton happens in Episode 17, “Fourth Child,” but we still have a ton of fun breaking down the episode. And going off on the occasional tangent.
Is Evangelion starting to get good? Or is it just getting so weird and surreal that we’re tricking ourselves into thinking it’s actually a good anime? Either way, Episode 16, “The sickness unto death, and then…” is actually pretty enjoyable! We have our audio issues figured out, and we came through with a new episode in just a week this time! We hope you all enjoy our deep dive into this one. Bill even has a pretty in-depth theory at the end of this review.
