Andy, Bill, and Matt give their final thoughts on the divisive, classic anime Neon Genesis Evangelion. They provide their grades of the show and their updated anime rankings. Most importantly, Bill reveals his pick for Season 8! It’s maybe not what you’re expecting. Big thanks again to Matt for joining us this season! We are looking forward to all working together again next season!
We finally made it, fans! We are at The End of Evangelion. Literally. It’s the movie we review and discuss. This is the alternate ending to the anime Neon Genesis Evangelion, and we have a LOT of thoughts. It begins with a song and ends with a sigh of relief. This took hours to record and many more hours to edit, so we hope you enjoy.
Do you hate the ending of Evangelion? So do we. Do we spend an hour just getting angry at it? Absolutely not. This may be one of our best discussions about the end of an anime as we break down the symbolism, storytelling, and visual elements that make Episodes 25 and 26 of Neon Genesis Evangelion so contested, yet unique. We still have two more Evangelion episodes to go this season, and we have a LOT to say here and in those two!
Matt has the unenviable task of trying to make sense of Episode 24 of Neon Genesis Evangelion, “The Last Cometh.” The short version of this episode involves a new pilot, LGBTQ+ content, Gendo’s unwashed hand, an actual mech battle, and a love lost. Trust me, it doesn’t make much more sense than that, but listen to us try to figure out the last episode before the anime’s iconic mess of a conclusion.
