IMO, It's better than Evangelion.
- A more likeable main character (well, anything is an improvement over Shinji).
- There are two Rei (if that's your thing).
- There are two Gendou (fuck yeah).
- RahX's Shinji and RahX's Misato are into each other.
- No "CONGRATULATIONS" nonsense ending, the ending here is actually good.
- There's an awesome twist at the very last seconds of the show. Most only see it coming just seconds before it's shown (the way God intended)
- You do root for the main characters and their love (Seriously. They act like you and I would in such unfortunate situations)
- It has robots that sing. FUCKING ROBOTS THAT SING.
By all means, watch it. You won't regret it.
Screw all the naysayers in this thread.
