A rant about anime. Namely Neon Genesis Evangelion.

I love anime. The artwork, the story, the characters, I love it all.

I hate Evangelion. Well, no, I love Eva, but I hate the ending.

I like to think that I'm good at figuring out obscure movies. Hell, the first time I watched all of Neon Genesis Evangelion, I thought I had it's ending figured out. Both of the endings. Lemme explain.

The first ending (the original aired one):

What the fuck is this shit? All that buildup just so I can watch some crazy acid-trip sequence where Shinji finds himself?

"Congratulations to all the children!"

What children? What the fuck is this? I don't care about no children! I want to see some Eva-pumpage! Gyah!

The second ending (End of Evangelion DVD's ending):

Is this ending better? I don't know, because it left me confused to the point of wanting to pull my hair out. Rei becomes a big giant Lillith thing and turns people into puddles? Fan-fucking-tastic.

The only part of this I liked was when Asuka got her groove back and started whooping some serious ass. Other than that, I didn't know if I should smile, cry, vomit, or kill someone. Whoever thought up the Human Instrumentality Project needs to be hung in public.

I've watched both endings multiple times in the past 24 hours alone and all I can say is my brain is about to explode. I want to weep, seriously. How could this happen?

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to find the Lance of Longinus and congratulate some children...

(UPDATE: Thanks to , I don't feel as let down, but let down none the less.)
