curious about something... posted 07 December 2004 in Author Q & Acurious about something... by Kalief, Candidate

Neon Genesis Evangelion is a classic, very good and very smart show. Definatly a must watch for any anime fan, but I wouldn't recommomend it as an introduction to the genre, as it can be very confusing and a bit...odd at times.

Watching an episode or two wouldn't really do it justice though, it's a continous story of 26 episodes, with a full feature movie showing the last few episodes from a different view (by popular demand as the ending was too confusing apparently <!-- s:P --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- s:P -->).

Anyway, recommended watch, classic, hated and loved series.

I've had a pretty long dry spell concerning reading, but have somehow managed to continue browsing through books and buying them at the easiest of whims.

A friend suggest Amy Hempel's short stories however, and I've loved just about everything I've managed to get. Definatly a new favourite view post
