30 Day Anime Challenge

Favorite Mech Anime


Neon Genesis Evangelion

This one was easy. Neon Genesis Evangelion was created by Gainax. Hideaki Anno wrote and directed the series. Evangelion is an apocalyptic anime that focuses on a teenage boy named Shinji Ikari. He is given the opportunity to save the world using a mecha called an “Eva” to defeat enemies called Angels. It’s considered one of the most successful anime of all time, grossing over 150 Billion yen. I think Evangelion is one of the most impressive, intellectual and though provoking anime ever created. Evangelion has tremendous action sequences. They can be rather violent so caution should be taken if your easily offended.  You can miss the underlining symbolism that Evangelion features so it’s probably would recommend re watching the series several times. Evangelion has complicated themes based off of religion and philosophy.

Evangelion does have some brutally violent scenes
