A great many people wrote about Evangelion, so I guess I’ll throw mine in too.
From its fame, I went into Evangelion expecting it to be this super entertaining, super intense, mind blowing philosophical emotional rollercoaster mecha anime about a boy nobody likes. Real Evangelion was different from what I was expecting, though. It’s a lot more… quiet and reflective, I think.
At this point, the only Gundam series I’ve watched in entirety is G Gundam (when I was 4 years old). I’ve watched a bit of OO and Seed Destiny while it was airing on TV but was kinda meh. Last year, I also watched Narrative and was thoroughly confused. I don’t know what made me watch Hathaway, but I gotta say, for a non-Gundam fan, it was a pretty good movie.
The movie is about this Hathaway Noa guy, who’s actually a leader of a terrorist group. He befriends a military officer and a weird girl who seems to have like, 3 personalities in one person. Stuff happened.
Heavenly Blue is probably one of my all time favorite anime opening, and because of that I wanted to see the story behind the song’s lyrics.
I’m not too invested, honestly.
Princess Asseylum of Vers (Mars) was assassinated on her first visit to earth. However, she survived the attempt but found that her death triggered another war between earth and Mars. Kaizuka Inaho is a high school pilot who happens to pick her up, and now must help end the conflict. And there’s Slaine, who figured out that Princess isn’t dead and must find out who on Mars plotted her assassination while stuck in a political tangle himself.
