Sorry to disturb you /a/.
I'm not a big Anime fan, therefore the only Anime series i watched where Death Note and Elfenlied. Now after reading up the wiki on NGE and seeing how much praise it gets, i'm really intersted in watching it.
My question is, do i really HAVE to watch the movies? The wiki says that the series is really open for intepretation and i'm fine with that but do the movies add much to the series?
