Neon Genesis Evangelion Movie Review

Content: (please note that content portions of a review may contain spoilers)

Neon Genesis Evangelion was quite transformational show, particularly for US fandom, during its original Japanese broadcast back in 1995 and 1996. The release of the series in the US was one of the first big shows to make waves in the nascent anime home video market at the time - thirteen VHS volumes no less - and has been an evergreen title ever since. While quite popular in Japan, fandom there tends to be even more about the shiny and new than in the US. Once a show is done and over with, it's time to move on. In US fandom, we tend to keep to our favorites, look to expand on them and revisit them. In a real rarity, the Evangelion TV series is being remade into four new movies, the first of which is entitled You Are (Not) Alone).
