Neon Genesis Evangelion: This About Says It All
Found this "out there" on the net & thought I'd post it.
For those who haven't gotten around to seeing the series & End of Evangelion, I suggest you do so. As an explanation would be too long & has been done much better than I could by others, I'll refer you to this excellent little summation on You Tube.
As for Gendo Ikari:
Just what can be said (Without using too much profanity.) about a creature like that? In the process of trying to rejoin with his catastrophically altruistic wife (I find her to be as much a villain as Gendo.) he ...
1. Uses two women very badly in order to gain his ends.
2. Expends not two but three clones of his wife as smokescreen & cannon fodder (Is it any wonder the third one turns on him?).
3. Puts the life of his own son on the line & very nearly damns the kids' soul.
And then there's that trifling matter of physically annihilating all of humanity & merging all souls into a single heaven/hell/nirvana/overmind.
I have every intention of owning all four of the "rebuild" films but ... I have the feeling that the Neon Genesis Evangelion series & End of Evangelion will be considered by most to be the definitive & canonical of the franchise.
