E-nervating

Neon Evangelion Genesis- seemingly the animation title with the most borrowed terms from the Bible, yet doesn’t make much sense if one tries to attach a literal meaning to it. More juice on this here.

The consequences of ideas spread through animation is just as much dangerous a ground to tread on. Throw in some Kabalah mysticsm, Freudian psychoanalysis theorem and coupled it with fantastic animation and it would surely be the talk of the town. Though the distorted depiction of philosophies in animations is not a novelty nor is it history, this animation certainly is both. Nowhere can one find a robot 'crafted' to be this agile and human-like anatomically (Yes, the Evas ooze blood.) Don’t bet on developing Christian worldviews or philosophies from watching this, though. The only two elements of fascination Man has for Neon Evangelion Genesis are 1) the distortion of ideas beneath it and 2) the extremely magnificent animation above it.

Nevertheless, this is a good watch.

Disclaimer: If tehtarik’s normalcy were to be a subject of suspicion here, please kindly consider the fact that she also watches My Little Pony.
