David Seid Subbed Version 8.0
No problems here. The animators used their relatively small budget wisely. The end result is a very nice looking TV series with an original and fresh color palette. Animation is relatively smooth for a TV series.
While these are not to my personal preference, I must say they are very well done. I especially liked the designs of Asuka. As a whole, these are excellent.
I loved the opening song, and was immediately hooked. The ending song "Fly Me to the Moon" is not my cup of tea, but was well performed. As a whole, the music to the series was quite good.
This is where I have a love/hate relationship with Evangelion. As a WHOLE, the story was great. The problem being that those last two episodes completely ruined it for me, and I suspect will leave a bad taste in mouth of most viewers when they see them. Obviously these episodes in question were meant to be thought provoking, but they had the wrong type of thought provoking effect on me.
Here is where I will mark down Eva, for its less than inspired ending. It is obvious from my opening remarks, that the series was an enormous disappointment to me. I almost wish ALL of the series was poor; then I could have written it off early as a waste of my time and saved a lot of time. The fact that it was a great series until the last couple of episodes is criminal, and the writers should be ASHAMED at themselves. I rate this series an AVOID, only because of the HIGHLY inadequate ending. If you are willing to go into watching the series with the knowledge and expectations that the last two episodes are unacceptable, then the rest of the series is worth watching (although I would advise you to rent it).
