Neon Genesis Evangelion in Anime / Animation / Manga / Comics Posted February 14, 2005 Eva is an anime for those who like to get involved in a deep psychological plot dealing with existence, religion and a whole crap load of other stuff. This is the reason why many people who watch it don't get it right away and usually end up not liking it in the long run. Saying its the best anime ever would not be accurate. Its one of the best ever created for its time and its one of the best for its target audience. Thats kind of the reason why most people are drawn to watch it because they are mislead to believe its something that requires little or not thought to watch (like Excel Saga).
