It's on netflix, I needed something to put on, and found this while scrolling through netflix

after my bf confirmed that this was the original version (I was very concerned about that) we watched two episodes. He went to bed after two and I cuddled with him, but I couldn't sleep and I wanted to watch more tv anyway, so I put on episode 3

Let me just say, phenomenal anime. Most anime has a initial "hard to watch"-ness for me, but with this show it's just so easy. The only bad thing is that the english dub's subtitles don't line up with what the people are actually saying, so I have to watch it without subtitles. I read a plot summary on Wikia for every episode as I watched.

But yeah, this one is so good. The characters are awesome. I like the timid main character boy who is implied to have this super dark past, I love Misato and her blonde friend, and yeah everything is in place here. Journalist kid, bully kid, I mean I don't have anything fancy or analytical to say but so far I am wholly invested in these characters.

My only question is, really?

Really, there was a world-class cataclysm, a fucking meteor hit us - OUR AXIS SHIFTED - and then in 15 years we come back with mecha technology? Like that's the part I don't buy. The Dark Ages lasted like 200 years; I think it would take longer than 15 for humanity to bounce back, and bounce back with that much advancement of technology at that.

What do you think? Post below! When does Asuka come on, and does she interact with Misato? Because I think the two would get along

if there's some plot explanation for why we built back better in 15 years then don't let me know, I'm watching more as we speak



Just watched episode 4, and I'm glad to see this anime is going to focus more on personal issues than on galactic worldbuilding. I love the glasses kid (kensuke) and the bully kid (tojo) and I'm interested to see more of their relationship.

I like how epic each episode feels while the writing still makes it easy to follow the narrative - will post more curios and thoughts as I watch these eps

now that I'm a bit more put together I'm going to rewatch the first four episodes that I watched

I really like the home-li-ness vibe they have going on but I want to understand the plot
