    Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion


    Note: This is more of a commentary on Evangelion, much less a review. I felt it was necessary to provide a bit of a background on the world of Evangelion, hence the first few paragraphs talk about the TV series, aired in 1995 - this part contains spoilers for the later episodes of that.
