I get that Evangelion has epic legendary status in the anime world, but frankly I don’t see why. It was one of the first animes/mangas that I saw/read, and all I really remember it boiling down to was screaming…and crying. It was like Emo Mecha to the extreme lol. Is there some psychedelic metamorphosis I missed or something?

I much preferred FMP, Macross, Eureka 7, and Toppa Tengen Gurren
