In episode 16 (Sickness, Unto Death, And.../Splitting of the Breast), Shinji and the EVA-01 are absorbed into a "Sea of Dirac". This comes from a theory by physicist Paul Dirac which states that the entire universe is filled with densely packed, negative energy electrons (in other words, anti-matter). This became known as a Dirac Sea, though later studies by other physicists gave way to the similar, but slightly more accurate Stückelberg-Feynman theory. See more »

What can I say about the most perfect anime ever created? What can I say about Shinji, the most complex character ever created?
Evangelion begins like an action sci-fi anime, like Akira. It has everything: humor, drama, action, great soundtrack. Great fun! But then you watch episode 24... and WOW!
The 3 last episodes are the most perfect writen anime episodes ever. Yeah, some people don't understand it. Some people don't like it. But that's because those 3 episodes are about 1000 years ahead of our time. For the very first time you get inside a character's mind, you understand his problems and his fears. Yeah it's disturbing some times, but isn't real life disturbing?
It doesn't matter if you like animes or not, WATCH THIS! But watch from the beginning, or else you will not recieve the final message from episode 26. I'm sure that you will love Evangelion!
