Re: The Evangelion movie is super popular these days
I watched it (the NGE movie) because I kept seeing it come up online everywhere (and even in the IMDB charts), and obviously you need to watch the full series to understand what's going on, but I was quite baffled. Early on, the main character jerks off in front of a comatose female character in a hospital bed... at the end, he starts (erm, lovingly?) choking another one (or the same one? can't remember), which is basically the last shot of the thing. In the latter third, there's a bunch of seizure-inducing craziness. some cool animation and probably would make more sense in context of the whole show, but seriously, wtf. this is why people call the Japanese/anime people a bunch of sexually violent weirdos...
