I agree completely. Even though the ending is so tragic, he still managed to make it kind of happy. To me that's an accomplishment.

Agreed. I also think this is one of Tomino's finest works. It needs to be released in the States. Like, right now.

The ending is the most tragic and devastating ever, but it's also the most epic, unforgettable and bittersweetly beautiful anyone has ever come up with. Be Invoked truly makes up for the TV series' faults. Not to mention its influence on NGE, one of the best known and acclaimed anime ever.

In a way, I think Be Invoked is Tomino's greatest creation. Then again I haven't seen that much of his works yet...

I haven't met anyone who likes Tomino's work who says that this is a bad ending. On the contrary it comes well recommended by Tomino fanatics.

All I know is that it was a depressing ending for me personally
