I have never seen a more succinct and understandable explanation of Neon Genesis Evangelion before, if you watched the series and thought to yourself WTF is this all about this video explains everything from the beginning to the end of Evangelion like never before.
My Inspiration: The Legend of the Galactic Heroes, New Anime
One might say that my own series Cybertech thematically borrows a lot from one of my favorite science fiction animes The Legend of the Galactic Heroes even if its name sake is a tribute to one of my childhood favorites Macross (Robotech)
Truth be told I actually didn’t even know The Legend of Galactic Heroes existed until about 2 years ago but I have since watched the original anime and am so glad they decided to do a modern remake with modern animation. Damn massive space battles look so good with CGI.
Funimation has done a dub for the show in English which is fantastic (still waiting for a good dub of the original)
