One of the best viewing experiences I've ever had.
14 March 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I only just saw this episode. I've recently been watching all the episodes of this show in order, and I've loved every episode. Its haunting beauty, playful humour and just quality in general...

But it wasn't until this episode, until I was literally in tears. Shinji's whole experience was so touching, so beautiful and shocking... Something similar also happen with Rei a couple of episodes before, that I also loved.

This just goes to show that this series is certainly one of the best animes ever made. Seriously, check it out.

10/10
