The spicy takes from young folks watching it for the first time... I'm tired just thinking about it.

Was surprised to see this at Barnes & Noble, had no idea it was coming out –

Which led me down the rabbit hole of other English language Eva books coinciding with the Netflix release…

Oh, those look nice. I still need to buy myself the Chronicle compilation books that came out a couple of years ago.

ANN just published a couple of relevant articles to coincide with the Netflix release:

Hideaki Anno: Before Evangelion
While the ripples of this seminal work have influenced subsequent generations of artists, Anno's profound and multifaceted career extends far past this single show. As a matter of fact, he had already built a reputation as one of Japan's most innovative animators - a talent he fostered quite early in life and would obsess over for decades.


The List:
Get to Know Seven of Evangelion's Angels

What makes the series so evocative all these years later is the emotional core of its characters but beyond that is the amazing world-building. Anno and his team crafted a multitude of interesting angles to approach the show, including monsters inspired by theoretical science and a lot of references to Christian mythos. Neon Genesis Evangelion dabbles in Kabbalah and Gnosticism as window dressing around its larger emotional themes.
