Death Note and Neon Genesis Evangelion — here are the two canonic anime series I can’t imagine myself without. Probably, this is how I discovered the essence of life and morality as a teenager. And I’m sure I’m not the only one. However, the latter somehow evokes most of my nostalgic feelings. So on my way rewatching the tetralogy (and still hoping to see the last film this year) I’m pleased to share some Evangelion fan art, conveying that ambiance of good old mecha.
I can still see myself swallowing one episode after another. I redrew almost all characters then and even tried to make my own manga chapters (I wonder if they might have been a success ). Neon Genesis Evangelion was the first ‘mature’ anime series I watched, and it evoked a mix of total fascination and unanswered questions. Truth be told, I still have many!
Today, I feel so thankful for this incredible universe to be in my life: with an unforgettable opening theme, deep philosophical significance, characters I could associate myself with. And of course, it introduced millions of teens to the mecha anime — so eventually, many of us got their best anime genre.
True, I miss the old cast of actors and can’t get used to the one on Netflix. And there’s been so much time since the third film, Evangelion: 3.0 was released. But who cares if the story still grips me? So I’m here to help you revive the legendary battles, pilot EVA and meet your best friends, from Shinji Ikari to Rei Ayanami, with this collection of my favorite Evangelion fan art illustrations.
