    Neon Genesis Evangelion

    ★★★★★

    Neon Genesis Evangelion remains indescribable, while deserving of  adjectives such as monumental or prodigious, they don't manage to encompass the vastness of the work here. The series is incredibly rich thematically, from imagery of the Abrahamic Religions, the Book of Genesis, Kabbalah and esotericism, to the writings of Freud and Jung.
