Cautiously pleased that I’ll be able to rewatch Evangelion on Netflix. I’ve been meaning to for a while, I’m curious to see how its influence on me has played out (I first saw it sometime in the late 90s, I think? When it aired on PBS in San Francisco) … But please, please can we not redo it, or extend it, or revise it, or live-action it, or anything else? The series was so good, both as a story and an artwork, a kind of commentary on its own creation, which is also one way of looking at the story’s themes. It’s interesting times we live in where we can access more content than ever, we live in a perpetual tidal wave of story, yet we keep reaching again and again for a few old familiars. Watch new things. Read new things.
… and tell me where I can finish Ergo Proxy now that it got snatched from Crunchyroll. 😉
