Neon Genesis EvangelionPrepare to be annoyed by two of the most repulsive characters in the history of anime. One is an indecisive, weak-kneed brat and the other is a devastatingly nagging bitch. And they stay that way throughout the entire series, there's absolutely zero character development.
I don't know about zero character development per se, it did have some philosophical meaning with Shinji and Asuka, but it did feel like the rest of the characters were bland, and a lot of them are douchebags, especially Gendo.
Good mecha battles, bad character development.
It's also confusing as hell towards the end, I found myself thinking "what the fuck?"
They didn't even bother trying to end the damn series, basically proving that the creators of the show were pretentious smart-asses and think that the ending was meant to be open-ended. Not to mention, the movies are essentially retellings of the same story, just with even more bizarre and confusing endings.
In all honesty, Evagelion is good, but not great. Raxephon is a carbon copy of Eva, but with a better story and characters that are not whiny assholes.
