Evangelion has some awesome stuff in it but I've always seen it as pretty meh because it gets too experimental and cutesy with the reused animation and the esoterism, the show becomes that nonstop after Toji pilots his Eva. It's basically half an actual show. And it's not just budget things cause afterwards, the second half of the movie was like that too. Wha. There's obviously something lost on me but I don't think I'm ever going to find those parts entertaining in any way.
