"Tenchi Muyo!" Does "Evangelion"
13 February 2004 | by Ofanite_of_DestinySee all my reviews

Made by the same team that created the classic Tenchi Muyô! Ryô Ôki (1992) (V), this is an extremely well-done series that manages to be both a fond tribute to and a sly parody of the "giant robot" genre. In particular, it gently spoofs some of the more distinctive elements of the groundbreaking anime "Shin seiki evangelion" (1995). Although a little short on coherent explanations (which action in the opening scenes of the first episode caused which universe, exactly why Kazuki is so different from his counterpart), it's chock-full of great characterization, hard-and-heavy robot action, and character-driven comedy that's never silly or cringe-worthy. While the characters are mostly high school age, adults can watch "Dual!" without fear of it being "dumbed down" for a younger audience; the writing is on the whole sophisticated and witty. And for those who don't like subtitles, the Pioneer dub is chock-full of great performances, particularly Joshua Seth and Georgette Rose.

Don't miss it!
