Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
One of the major anime works of the last decade, the 1995-96 television series Neon Genesis Evangelion was a blast of fresh air in a medium that is sometimes marked by cookie-cutter sameness. Director Hideaki Anno Gunbuster used the medium as no one had before: as a means for personal expression and for exorcising private demons his troubled relationship with his father casts a shadow over the story. The gamble paid off: Eva is both a must-see pop hit and a rare example of creativity uncompromised by the usual market forces. In the far future, after an unspecified disaster known as the Second Impact, Earth is attacked by hostile beings called "Angels." To combat these immense enigmatic foes, a scientist named Gendo unleashes psychically powered, semiorganic battle robots known as "Evas." After a string of costly failures involving the Evas and their child pilots, Gendo reunites with his introverted, estranged teenage son, Shinji, only to use him as a tool in a struggle with truly apocalyptic implications. Eva takes a few cues from 1970s Japanese pop classics like Ultraman and robot shows like Mazinger Z, and then blasts off for the twilight zone. Conspiracy, mystery, and religious imagery figure heavily. But more than the doom and gloom, it is the complex and endlessly fascinating characters who make Eva sparkle and come to life -- the beautiful but haunted waif Rei and the spunky redhead Asuka are fine foils. With its controversial final episode, which shocked the original viewing audience, the only possible comparison for the series may ultimately be to David Lynch's Twin Peaks. Still a unique and wild ride by any standard, Neon Genesis Evangelion is anime's equivalent of a primal scream. Volk Lindsay
