Goofs

During the scene when Rei attacks Wunder, there is a close up shot of Shinji screaming, during the close up we didn't see his collar attached to his neck, however, after a flash of explosion, the collar magically appears.

However, this mistake only appears in the home video version. See more »

Mind Mushing Mess. Warning: head might explode.
1 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

Confusing, nonsensical, over-the-top, incoherent, childish, tiring to the eye, not quite fit for a child because of mature scenes and character outfits, certainly not fit for an adult because after a certain age, one usually feels the need for something to make sense to be able to follow and not have his mind scream 'Stop!Please, stop torturing me!" With a bit of alcohol, good company (and... I dunno... maybe mushrooms?), *maybe* you'd be able to enjoy this, if ONLY it didn't take itself so seriously. And it's difficult for me to imagine what must feel to be the author(s) of this thing. I've often found myself wondering what it was that they smoked to get such a bad trip.

Nevertheless, I gave it a 2 star, because the animation is not at all bad, (if only the speed and twirl of some of the scenes didn't give you headaches), it does have decently good aesthetics, within the anime style, but the plot, extremely hard to follow, never feels like it is a plot, rather a filling, a pretext for putting in nice moving pictures a cocktail of everything (but ab-so-freaking-lute-Ly everything!) someone found cool in his whole lifetime of a being a geek obsessing about sex and robots and aliens and monsters and sex and kids and battles and sci-fi and sex - all of them cool on their own, but completely randomly connected into an enormous, chaotic amalgam that does not go anywhere, and is even somewhat insulting to the intelligence of the people who actually have an appreciation of all those things. I could never find cool a protagonist that whines and is wimpy, annoying and pathetic, then goes straight "over 9000" because potato, he's the protagonist and shut up, he must be cool and you must like him and get a gratuitous and fake sense of achievement. It made me just sad, and longing for something like "Samurai Champloo" and "Cowboy Beebop" kind of anime, and feeling a little sorry and hopeless for the future of this genre.

And all this outrage exactly because I really, really want to like anime, I know it has so much potential, but I keep walking into this sort of disappointing incoherent and over-the-top shark-jumping disasters that turn me away. And this one right here competes for the title of the biggest mind-f** in this otherwise appealing genre.

In other words... No! Just don't watch! Never! This thing is full of big, fat NOPE. Unless you hate your brain, then, yes, by all means, knock yourself out... speaking of, now please excuse me, I have a wall to hit with my skull, repeatedly, and hope it helps me forget... whatever that was I just watched a few nights ago...
