Reasons why I liked EVA:
- The story was appealing to me, I found it quite interesting.
- "Mecha" designs
- Animation, and style of art is quite nice for something so old.
- Characters, quite fleshed out.
- Songs aren't that bad too.
Reasons why I didn't like EVA:
- The ending(s), basically everything after episode 20 something kinda brought it down.
- It was a nice show to watch, although I don't find it as amazing as other people do, possibly because I did not watch it during that time period, were it was completely different from what was the norm, and also the nostalgia factor, but none the less, it was a good show, I wouldn't say it was the best in all time, but it was good.
You should have at least had a look at the other episodes before deleting it. The story picks up, and so does the action.
