Show Notes:

  • For this inaugural, mega-long episode, we give a brief introductions,  our backgrounds, and lay out our general review philosophy.
  • We discuss the upcoming Hulu purge of anime.
  • Ponder the possibilities of the upcoming Godzilla Resurgence film from Hideaki Anno — Edit: It’s Finally Here!
  • Finally, we have three back-to-back reviews of Hideaki Anno and Studio Khara’s Rebuild of Evangelion films. The first review begins at 47:53, the second at 1:57:15, and the third at 2:47:47.
  • Slightly related, I discovered an utterly inexhaustible resource for Evangelion and Gainax related interviews (after we’d already recorded the podcast, of course).  Check it out. The NGE Source Anthology and NGE 2.0 Complete Records Collection sections are a wonderful place to start — tremendous props to the site owner!

Apologize in advance for the shoddy audio quality.  And, yes, we realize this episode is a little EXTREMELY rough in parts — please do bear with us!
