Ashley and Luke exchange roles in a podcast where they watch landmark anime Neon Genesis Evangelion. Along with watching the episodes they discuss it's characters and themes, as well as getting into the usual tangents.
After a disastrous act of Pod we had to re-record this episode. We still have a lot to say about how this show messes up it’s moral of forgiveness, the Garden of Eden, the existence of french fries and the fact that Larry might be a god in training.
Luke and Ashley get started on their new mistake. They talk about their history with religion, try to get to the bottom of what the creator believes and try to figure out this new world.
We reach the end of our Evangelion journey (for now) with the love it or hate it Evangelion 3.0. We come firmly down in the “it’s perfectly okay” camp but that doesn’t mean that we can’t talk about how Shinji sucks, gay piano sequences, the shakey look of characters being perpetually young and the thrilling conclusion to Luke’s “steal everything” story line!
