Ashamedly I had never touched the Evangelion series in any way until last week... I just finished watching the TV series... And I loved everything apart from the last 3 episodes.
Episode 24 wasn't bad, but I just didn't particularly like Kaworu and how suddenly important he was to Shinji (I hear the rebuild movies introduced him much earlier which sounds like a better idea). Then episode 25 and 26... Well, it was obvious that they definitely had budget issues, and while I have nothing against the emotional/psychological deconstruction of the characters (in fact I love that aspect of the series), that was just a bit too much I think lol especially when there was no real world context to understand what was happening (I mean, we kinda know what was probably happening, but I'm sure as hell glad there's End of Evangelion which from the sound of it shows a bit more of what was actually going down? I'll get round to watching that soon anyway).
Also, looking forward to watching the Rebuild movies after I'm done with EoE. Can't believe I never watched this sooner. Ah well, better late than never.
